You finally returned to Earth, catching up with what has happened since your narrow brush with death and trip across the stars. You learned of Videl and Pantea managing a new form, the Kaio-Ten, while also figuring out that Dr. Raichi is headed towards Earth. The fate of not just the world but the future, and even the legacy of the Tuffle people hangs in the balance.
>>2443388“There, I believe we’ve got everything we need.” Dr. Briefs declares. You’d been going over the Destron Gas machines with him ever since you and the girls arrived, helping Bulma’s dad develop this countermeasure. Finally, looks like you all have gotten something. A gas with similarites to Destron, but able to in essence “hijack” its effect and turn it back in on itself, neutralizing the gas.Bulma meanwhile has come close to finishing her work on 19. Might be time to finally wake her up again. But... well, you still need to actually test the countermeasure, and then start spreading it across the Earth. And you’re running out of time.>A. Test the countermeasure with the folks here at Capsule Corp.>B. Head to the Lookout, get this stuff working with what Trip has>C. Someone else can deliver it, you want to be here for 19>D. Something else?
>>2443392>B. Head to the Lookout, get this stuff working with what Trip hasTrust in our allies!
Good to see you Kato, hope your Easter and April Fools Day went well.>>2443392>B. Head to the Lookout, get this stuff working with what Trip has
>>2443392Welcome back Kato!>B.
>>2443456>>2443428Thank you! Things have been... busy, but it's calmed down over here. Things going well so far, at least.>>2443392While you’d like to be there when she wakes up, you really are short on time. “Bulma, give my regards to her when she’s up. I still want to thank her properly, but at least let her know I appreciate what she did.”“Of course. I let Chiaotzu know too, he’s on his way.”You gather up the gas sample that you and Dr. Briefs have created. “Okay, let’s get this to Trip. Pan, Peppa, you two wanna come with?”Pan shrugs. “I’m basically stuck with you, so might as well.”Peppa almost leaps to your side, holding on to your hand. “Ready, mom!”Looking back at Bulma, you smile and tell her, “Best of luck.”“Same to you, Maple.”The three of you teleport over to the Lookout, appearing next to Trip and Mr. Popo... with Kuriza next to them, all of them observing the Ginyus trying something. The five of them seem to have synced up their respective Ki signatures... almost like they’re going to attempt Fusion. But... with five?“All together, men! Let’s get this down!” Captain Ginyu shouts out.“RIGHT, CAPTAIN!” They declare in return.You watch quietly as... well...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8HzH1CoFGMQ“Haha!” the... combined form of the Ginyu Force shouts out proudly. “We did it, Lord Kuriza! The one and only Ginyu Force has mastered this technique!”“...What.” Pan blurts out flatly, barely able to believe what she is seeing.>A. This is cool and all but Trip, countermeasure! We need to spread this across the Earth!>B. Oh you NEED to find out more about this>C. Something else?
>>2443620>B. Oh you NEED to find out more about this"The Ginyu Enforcer!" >C. Something else?Have them deliver the stuff to Trip while we get distracted by the Big GF fusion.
>>2443620>A. This is cool and all but Trip, countermeasure! We need to spread this across the Earth!>I'll have questions about this later!
>>2443656But maybe we should spare a moment to get a read on their power boost.
>>2443660Second on giving them a look with ki sense.
>>2443620You sense their new combined strength... and it is truly massive. Far beyond what Ginyu himself was capable of, possibly even close to Piccolo’s strength, if not higher. “Gods... I’m gonna have a million questions about this, you guys don’t go anywhere! But first thing’s first, Trip! We’ve got something that can get rid of the Destron Gas!” You reveal the gas canister to her. “You’ve still got a way of delivering it across the Earth, right?”She nods. “And not a moment too soon. Plant life across the planet has been wilter, and animals have shown signs of illness all over.”“Crap...” You look at the canister containing it. “Will this be enough?”“It may not have an immediate effect on its own... but we can work with this. Mr. Popo?”The genie starts to walk ahead, motioning for you to follow. “Yes, Kami. It is ready. Maple, if you can bring that with us...”Pan and Peppa walk with, the older girl commenting, “Well, guess I finally have a chance to see where that thing was located. Really does bring back some memories of facing Baby.”“Why were you fighting a baby, again?” Peppa questions suspiciously.“Well like, he called himself Baby. This machine mutant goo monster alien that like... ugh, it’s a long, dumb story.” Pan hangs her head, grumbling in frustration.Your daughter places her hands on her hips, unimpressed. “What a weirdo. Who calls themself a baby? I’d call myself something cool, like... Space... Laser. Oh, oh, or maybe like... Saiya... Girl! Saiyagirl!”Pan flinches. “...I’m sure you can come up with better names than-”“Tuffest-Saiyagirl!” she exclaims, spinning in a circle.Mr. Popo opens up a large dooway, a dark hallway that seems to go on as far as the eye can see. Summoning his magic carpet, Mr. Popo next directs everyone on it and flies through. The hallway is... oddly ominous. You can feel strange presences within it, but they seem stilled, silent. Like they’re quietly observing you all. “Is... there something here, Trip?”“The path to the Seven Air Currents under the Lookout is kept by spirits of the Earth’s previous Kami, chosing to remain here to help guard it from outside threats.”You sense around a bit more. They... do definitely feel familiar, somehow. Almost like... Darkness, in a way? Still, you reach the end, seeing Sugoro and son tending a device at there, currents of wind seemingly being drawn towards it.>A. What do you need me to do?>B. Just let Trip do this, she knows what she’s doing>C. ...Was Darkness ever a Kami?>D. Something else?
>>2443795>A. What do you need me to do?>C. ...Was Darkness ever a Kami?>D. Something else?"Olibu was a great hero, why didn't he become Guardian?"
>>2443795>B.And backing this D. >>2443812
>>2443795>A. What do you need me to do?>C. ...Was Darkness ever a Kami?
>>2443795“What do you need me to do, Trip?” You move off the magic carpet, waving to Sugoro and son.“We need to dissolve the gas within the sacred water, the two mixing together to back up each one’s abilities.” she explains, moving off with you.“How... exactly are you going to do that?” Pan questions.“Shouldn’t be too difficult.” Sugoro states, transforming into a large pot. “Place the canister inside, then pour in the water. My son and I have done this plenty of times to make nice fresh sodas, when we got the chance.”“Oh!” Peppa exclaims. “Carbo... carbi...”“Carbonation, sweetie.” you help. “That’s actually pretty clever. So you’re goint to pressurize it in, or what?”“It would be the general idea behind it.” Trip states. “We should get started.”You do as asked, placing the canister inside Sugoro while Trip slowly pours in the Sacred Water, Shusugoro transforming into a lid. You look back down the hallway. “You know, I have to wonder, would someone like Olibu have made a good choice in guarding this place?”“He never became Kami of Earth, so he would never have been made a candidate for it.” she replies.You place your hands behind your head. “Well, did he turn the job down, or something?”“He either was never offered it or turned it down when given the chance. Becoming a good Kami still requires much in the way of proper training and learning of what rules to abide by, especially in dealing with guiding souls to the afterlife.” Trip looks down, frowning. “...I will do my best to live up to the man who came before me.”“I think you’re already doing a great job.” you comment with a smile. As you wait, you look back at the hallway again. “...Was Darkness ever a Kami?”Trip is confused by your question. “Hm? Well... not that I am aware of. Why do you ask?”You shrug. “Just kinda getting a similar vibe between him and the spirits in there, I guess.”“Ah, that is probably because the forms their spirits have taken are similar to his. But I can assure you, Darkness has never been Kami himself.” Mr. Popo explains.“What do you mean by form? Can others like... do this?” You tilt your head. This is new.Popo shakes his head. “Not usually. A soul needs to be kept from passing on in some way, either through an outside force or through a kind of... well, ‘permission’ is probably not the best way to describe it. Maybe... acceptance, of higher powers?”“Ready!” Sugoro declares.>A. Need help with it, Trip?>B. What else do you know about this, Mr. Popo? Is... there any risk the spirits Dr. Raichi has stolen might end up like that?>C. Something else?
>>2444095>A. Need help with it, Trip?>B. What else do you know about this, Mr. Popo? Is... there any risk the spirits Dr. Raichi has stolen might end up like that?
>>2444095>B. What else do you know about this, Mr. Popo? Is... there any risk the spirits Dr. Raichi has stolen might end up like that?
>>2444095“What else do you know about this, Mr. Popo? Is... is there any risk the spirits Dr. Raichi has stolen could end up like that?” you ask hesitantly. Not a comforting idea, given all that’s happened.He helps Trip lift Sugoro to an opening that seems to be drawing in air. “Well... I do not believe that most would. It takes more than mere force of will to linger in such a manner. Even when King Piccolo unleashed his reign of terror upon the world, the souls that he kept from passing on eventually were able to cross over once he was stopped. I would imagine that Dr. Raichi’s defeat will release the souls of those he has under his command back to the other world.”“Whaaaaat iiiiiif one of them really wants to remain behind, like that Freezer guy?” Peppa asks. “Could he become like... a spooky ghost? A spooky skull ghost? A... skost. Skost. Skoooost.” She repeats the portmanteau several more times, amused by the sound of it.“A spirit lingering like that could potentially happen, but they would be drawn back to the afterlife eventually.” Trip tells her. “I suspect if there is any lingering Destron gas on other planets, they may try to manifest there, haunting until their strength is diminished and they are forced back, or until they exorcised properly.”“Then let’s make sure that our world is free of the stuff.” you declare adamantly.>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST Z #78... Paused.>Twitter account is @KatoQm, will have status updates there>Got some questions for the QM? Characters? Suggestions? Throw them at ask.fm/QMKato and I'll try to answer them as best I canAnd that’s all for tonight, folks! We’ll continue tomorrow usual time of ~5:30 pm PST. Did y’all have fun?
>>2444281Glad to see you running again Kato.
>>2444281 or if they manifest on a world where they can feed off of anger and negative energy they could stay longer. Like the one Beelzabub got his power up on
>>2444281Glad to see you back Kato.
>>2444281Ghost Busters in Space sidestory when
>>2444306>>2444902Thank you very much!>>2444768There's an idea.>>2446298Hah, we'll see.Anyway, we're back!>>2444281You return to the entrance of the Lookout, finding, to your surprise, the Ginyus already defused, Kuriza talking with them. “Ah, so I presume that you all had success with your endeavor?” the alien boy asks.You give a nod. “Yep. So what’s up with this? Fusion not last as long as usual?”“Seems to be limited to about half a minute, actually.” Captain Ginyu states. “It’s tremendously powerful, sure, but we’ll have to use it as a last resort.”“Haven’t been able to refuse yet either.” Guldo comments.>A. Still want to learn it! Could prove a real game-changer>B. Well, keep practicing it when you can>C. Something else?
>>2446422>A. Still want to learn it! Could prove a real game-changer>But now is definitely not the time.
>>2446422>>A. Still want to learn it! Could prove a real game-changer>>But now is definitely not the time.
>>2446427Yeah, this. Still, good that they learned it.
>>2446422>A. Still want to learn it! Could prove a real game-changer.Then show off a new pose to prove we're serious. >C.Advise them to practice the time extension that we did.
So Goku, Us, Acer, Chi Chi annnnnd....maybe Roshi.
>>2446441We gotta lead the fusion, so we're a giant Super Tuffle.
>>2446441Or Krillin.Or Raditz!
>>2446448Nah, if you get more than one saiyan in the fusion we're just gonna' have spiky blonde hair.
>>2446453Then Chuu Lee, Acer, Lapis, Lazuli and Us for non Saiyans and other aliens beyond tuffles. Also spares Acer from fusing with his wife...Saiyan fusion wise...Vegeta if he actually listens to reason and tries it could be apart of the strongest Saiyan to exist to beat Broly.If we got the future gohan red back he can fit, and so could blue.Nappa, Raditz, Goku, and Bra. Pan could also substitute.
>>2446471Hold up. If five Saiyans dide the fusion dance, would they still need five OTHER Saiyans to reach Super Saiyan Red?
Rolled 1, 18, 13, 6, 5 = 43 (5d20)>>2446422“Ooooh. Really want to learn that, it could prove to be a real game changer, but doubt any of us have the time to get it all down. You guys are already exceptionally coordinated, and while we’ve got the regular dance down, it might take a bit more time to get everyone ready for this one.”Ginyu smiles. “Heh, well, when you do, hope you guys the best with it when you finally do give it a try.”You spot your daughter pondering to herself on if she has the time to try it, but she decides against it. Though... the kids might be a pretty good fit for it. Peppa, Gohan, Videl, Pantea, and Izumi. All about the same height and build, at least for now... ah, if only you did have more time.Trip looks down the edge of the Lookout. “It seems that it is working... the Destron Gas concentrations on Earth are diminishing. It will still take some time, but we have done it.”Everyone gives a little cheer, a few more voices added in catching your attention. You look back and spot Pantea, Chuu Lee, Piccolo, Yosei... and your brother. “Sis... hah, it really is you.” Acer starts to move towards you, a wide, warm smile on his face.>A. Sibling hug, stat!>B. Are you sure you’re okay, brobro?>C. So, how’d the Time Chamber stuff go?>D. Something else?
>>2446502>A. Sibling hug, stat!>B. Are you sure you’re okay, brobro?>C. So, how’d the Time Chamber stuff go?Did you learn Kaio-Ten?>D. Something else?Ki Sense brother.
>>2446502>A. Sibling hug, stat!>C. So, how'd the Time Chamber stuff go?>D. Sense their powers...
>>2446510>>2446517These, yeah. Let's see how strong they are now.
I really hope you plan on going on to Super Kato.That whole Universal Survival Arc was dope.
>>2446557Most certainly, but it won't be for a while. And there might be some significant changes when we do reach that point.
>>2446561We any closer to getting above a seven on the mortal scale? or atleast a .01 boost?
>>2446577Well... that'll depend on how Kuriza manages things from now on, among other things.
>>2446577>>2446586Will we at least be higher than U6?
>>2446602There's a chance for that, yes.>>2446502You bolt over to your brother and embrace him. “Acer! Sibling hug, stat!”“Sibling hug it is.” He holds you tight, the two of you then making a blank stare and repeating a monotone “PAT, PAT.” together as you pat each other’s backs. He finally lets go, still smiling. “So glad you’re still alive.”You ruffle his hair a little. “And I’m glad you’re okay. You went through a lot, from what I heard. You sure you’re still okay? Rested up enough.”“Hooh. You can say that...” he sighs out. “But yeah. I’m fine.”“And Pantea, Chuu Lee! Your training go well?” You take a moment to sense their strength. Seems Pantea’s almost caught up with Videl, definitely enough for her to try to manage the Kaio-Ten, while Chuu Lee’s gotten even stronger, about as strong as Goku is now. Acer meanwhile is right even with you.They both look at each other and smile. “Dr. Raichi won’t know what hit him.” Chuu Lee declares confidently.“Ooh, then... did you...?”“Just barely, but we can transform. Also, we think we figured out something interesting.” Pantea replies, looking to Acer.Your brother clears his throat. “So... that thing I went through, absorbing the Destron Gas and recieving a significant boost in strength? We think, key word here think, that was me almost pushing through the barrier to the Kaio-Ten. Maybe call it like... a pseudo-Kaio-Ten, like what Goku did in the Tournament, before he finally truly became a Super Saiyan.”“Huh... well that’s something.” It... would mean he almost got the form before you. Heh, wow, you’ve got a bit of catching up to do, don’t you?A sudden, ominous jolt travels down your spine. You can feel something approaching... something strong. Everyone else senses it too. Crap... he’s almost here.>A. Gather everyone! EVERYONE! Need a game plan>B. Whoever’s working on finding the last Destron Gas machines, find them and find them fast!>C. Try to sense for anything new arriving on Earth, and get your Scouter looking for things too>D. Something else?
>>2446610>>B. Whoever’s working on finding the last Destron Gas machines, find them and find them fast!>>C. Try to sense for anything new arriving on Earth, and get your Scouter looking for things too
>>2446610>A & C.
>>2446610>A. Gather everyone! EVERYONE! Need a game plan>B. Whoever’s working on finding the last Destron Gas machines, find them and find them fast!>C. Try to sense for anything new arriving on Earth, and get your Scouter looking for things too>D. Something else?If Brobro just needs a power boost to reach it, wouldn't us fusing allow him to use Raio-Ten? We should fill in that power/knowledge gap...
>>2446577>>2446561>>2446602So, what do you think our Team would consist of?I'm thinking Us, Goku, Acer, Vegeta, Piccolo, Kuriza, Tien, Chuu Lee, Peppa and Gohan.Maybe a swap out of Raditz and Kuriza, just I think Kuriza has a lot of potential to get crazy stronk.
>>2446634I'll reserve my choices after the 'Buu' Arc time period.
>>2446639until after*Though I did make a list before...Love to see Ledgic or even Pikkon.
>>2446643>PikkonOh right non-cannon characters are up for grabs. I forgot...Fuck it let's just have Broly solo the entire tournament.
>>2446651>KaleSo we're pushing for the Kale/Caulifla ship right?I mean after we get Caulifla a respectable shirt. She's worse than Pan.
>>2446645>>2446651I want us to team up with U6. Broly and Kale combo attacks!
Shit.How we gonna' deal with Hit? Does our Maple Sense give us a slight advantage there or what?
>>2446657Undoubtaly. Matchmaker Maple gonna get them together.
I wonder what our Universe's Geetz will think of Cabba?
>>2446662We train with Guldo to beat Za Warudo.
>>2446668....Guldo vs Hit who wins?
>>2446662Peppa masters the Time Skip ability.Combines it with Power Pole skills.Wheel of Time.
>>2446668Also hey could I get another link to that Hera Discord? The one you posted timed out.
>>2446688....if Kato approves, yes.I believe that'd count as advertising in another quest.
>>2446732Aw well save it for next quest then.
Rolled 6, 18, 19, 7, 19 = 69 (5d20)>>2446610After telepathically telling those searching for the last few Destron Gas machines to keep up their search, you ask everyone else to meet up with you ASAP. Dr. Raichi’s almost here. You and Acer decide the best place to meet up is near Capsule Corp, and head there as the fighters from all around head towards it. You also try to sense for anything unusual arriving on Earth, having your Scouter scan around.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v97gaAvrzYgWorryingly, you feel an all too familiar presence already on the planet. A few of them, in fact... and while you don’t sense it, your Scouter picks up a couple fairly high energy signatures as well. Acer notices it too, especially the strongest one. “Crap... so he was saving that for the grand finale, huh?”Peppa gives a determined look. “Gohan and I kicked his butt once already, we’ll do it again!”“Majin Ozotto feels even stronger than before... I don’t know if you two should try to take him on your own.” you tell her. “But we might have to manage our forces carefully...”After a short while, most everyone arrives. Goku, Gohan, Raditz, Chi-chi, Izumi, Bra, Videl, Yamcha, Vegeta, Nappa, Tarble, Krillin, Lapis, Lazuli, Beelzebub, and even recently arrived Jaco, Jiya, and of all people, Cui, join your group. Tien, Launch, and the Crane School seem to be still going around hunting down the last remaining Destron Gas machines with a few others like Yajirobe.Vegeta and Nappa glare at Cui silently as he catches up with the Ginyus and Kuriza, Jaco and Jiya looking over at the group uncomfortably, but trying not to speak out against them. An unspoken truce, at the very least, seems to be their prevailing mindset, but the tension there is more than noticeable. Goku meanwhile smiles at you confidently. “Ready to do this, Maple?”>A. I think we’re all ready>B. We need to come up with a plan. Two-pronged attack, at the very least>C. Dr. Raichi might be close enough for you to telepathically speak with him. Maybe give it a try?>D. Something else?Write-ins greatly encouraged.
>>2446755>A. I think we’re all ready
>>2446755If I'm counting right there's like 26+ people here right?Let's break off into groups!Kuriza, Ginyu's, and Cui seem like a easy set one since they all know each other.Bra, Nappa, Tarble, and Vegeta.Us, Goku, Gohan, and Peppa.Krillin, Izumi, Bra, Tien, and LaunchLapis, Yamcha, Lazuli, and BeelzebubAcer, Chi Chi, Jaco, and Jiya.Hit'em from all sides.
>>2446755I'm going to tell you what we're not going to do. Let Hatchiyak take out everyone while we're split up like we saw in the Pendulum Room. Even if we are stronger, no doubt Raichi has too. We're fighting for that Maple and Acer. For all those people in that scenario for this as well...>D. Suggest everyone that can to pair up with a fusion partner.>A.
>>2446767Oh and Chuu Lee with Krillin's team.
>>2446767>>2446769I say we have a team of like, at least 5, but at most 10 confront Raichi directly. And we want our heavy hitters.Maybe like>Maple, Acer, Goku, Chi-chi, Gohan, Peppa, Piccolo, Chuu Lee, and a couple othersIs 19 up yet? I know she will want to see Gero.
>>2446805I'll support this.
>>2446755https://youtu.be/BJXkqfGGgJgYou look over all your friends and allies gathered around, thinking back to how you all came to be here. Some of them you first met as bitter rivals or sworn enemies, some of them were fast friends. Everyone here has gone through countless struggles, trials, tests of strength and resolve. You all have come a long way to reach this point. “I think we all are.”Acer stands up, a determined and resolute look on his face. “All those years ago Dr. Raichi abandoned us here, on this planet, refusing to bring us back unless we killed Goku. We defied him. We chose to stick with not just Goku, but this planet. Earth is our home. And now he comes here to threaten this home. We WILL stop him. We WILL save this world. We WILL stop him from hurting any other world, too. And we WILL change the future, for the better.” He thrusts his fist into the air. “Who’s with us?!”Cheers of agreement echo out from most everyone. Vegeta and Nappa snort out in slight annoyance, but otherwise don’t make any comment. Raditz, though, smirks proudly, raising his fist as well. Piccolo nods at him, a look of pride on his face. Goku cracks his knuckles. “Heh, looks like we’re all getting a little excited for this.”“Okay. I think it’s best that we start dividing into teams for this. Some of us will need to confront Dr. Raichi directly, but we can’t neglect the Earth, especially with Ozotto back...”Bra takes a step forward. “If you’ll all let me, I would like to lead the team facing Majin Ozotto. He was only capable of reaching this form because of Cell, after all. I take responsibility for this.”“Sounds like a good plan. You’ve got that Ascended Super Saiyan power, and Peppa and Gohan managed to beat Ozotto handily on their own with it.” Lapis comments.You rub your chin. “Fusion partners are going to prove a life saver, too, so whatever teams we divide into, we’ll need to make sure some of us can fuse.”(cont.)
>>2446924https://youtu.be/hTi3s44Ylv4“Well, whatever teams we divide into, I wanna stick with you guys.” Goku declares. “I mean, I’m part of the reason Raichi’s even coming here too, so let me be there with you both.”You poke Goku in the side. “You sure you’re not just saying that because you wanna fight Raichi’s strongest yourself?”He grins cheekily. “Weeeell... I mean, yeah, but I’m serious. I’m with you two.”“Then I’m coming too.” Chi-chi adds in. “I probably wouldn’t be capable of even half of what I’ve accomplished without the two of you helping me when we first met. I owe you both a lot, at least let me do this to help repay you. Plus, if needed, I can fuse with you, Maple.”Raditz steps forward as well. “I guess I’m in the same boat. I’m going to confront Dr. Raichi as well.” He gives Goku a friendly jab on the arm. “Besides, what kind of big brother would I be if I didn’t try to keep an eye on you?”“I’m in too.” Piccolo declares. “I also owe the two of you, both as Piccolo and as the former Kami.”Gohan and Peppa float up towards you and Goku, tails swaying behind them both. “We’re gonna go too. Bad guy gramps needs a butt-kicking.” Peppa tells you.“Maple...” Chuu Lee places her hand on your shoulder. “Allow me to fight by your side. You trained me and helped me become the fighter I am today. You believed in my potential, and I want to repay you for all you’ve helped me accomplish. As a fellow Turtle School Master. And as a friend.”“If you are going to fight Dr. Raichi, Dr. Gero will be there as well.” a new voice comments, all of you turning to see her. Bulma and Chiaotzu walk in... with 19, awake and fully repaired. “I request that you allow me to confront him.”“Hmnh. All this sentimental garbage is going to make me gag.” Vegeta groans out. “But if you are going to fight him, then I am going to come too. My blood boils knowing that he’s been allowed to live for so long. I want to be the one to put him in his grave.”>A. Welcome aboard, 19!>B. 19, maybe you should stay here...>C. If you’re sure you can tolerate working with a few Tuffles, Vegeta>D. Er... no offense, but maybe you should stick with Bra, Vegeta>E. Something else?
>>2446929>>C. If you’re sure you can tolerate working with a few Tuffles, VegetaThen give him a big ol' poop eating grin, nudgin' him in the side a bit.
>>2446934Also A.Gosh darnit Kato you got me all shook up.In the good way.But not the sexy way.Sorrynotsorry.
>>2446929I'm not crying you're crying.>A. & C.
>>2446929>A. Welcome aboard, 19!>E. Something else?Just give Vegeta the same smile we shared when we fought at the tournament.
Also holy shit, 17's wife in Super is just a rule63 Krillin.Boom. Case closed.
>>2446929You give the android girl a thumb’s up. “Welcome aboard, 19. I know things between us haven’t... well, been the best of times for you, but at the very least, we can do that for you.”“I appreciate it.” she responds... well, not as blankly or emotionlessly as before, but there’s still a calmness in her voice. At the very least, it seems a bit more friendly.You next look over to Vegeta and smile at him. His eyes narrow in response. “You keep that up and I WILL punch that smirk right off your face.”You nudge his arm. “Hey, if can tolerate working alogside a couple Tuffles, then we’re more than happy to have you too.”His eye twitches. “I’m only doing this to put him in the dirt. Nothing more.”Goku grins too. “Well Vegeta, glad to have you with us.”He glares and you’d swear you started to hear him growl at Goku. Peppa squints at Vegeta, landing and holding on to your leg. Bra, however, draws his attention away for just a moment, telling him, “Good luck out there, father.”Vegeta’s anger subsides as he nods in response, telling her in a proud and, for once, almost fatherly tone, “I expect to see you alive and well when I return, Bra.”(cont.)
>>2447049You cover your mouth to hide your widening smile. But, sadly, seems someone has to crash this family moment. A voice starts contacting your Scouter, along with Acer, Bulma and even Cui’s, the Ginyus’ and Kuriza’s Scouters get the same message. Opening it up... you find it’s none other than Dr. Gero. “I must say, that is certainly impressive that you managed to reduce the Destron Gas so quickly. But your countermeasure is only a temporary one. The final five machines left on Earth have a rather interesting trick up their sleeves, you see. One that we can finally activate, since we’ve come so, so close to this little blue marble I have called home.”“What do you mean?” Bulma asks him.As if on cue, Tien contacts you. ‘Maple, there’s something strange happening with the barriers around the machines. They... they’ve gotten way stronger than before. Wait... no, that’s not all, something else is changing about them...’Dr. Gero starts to laugh. “Hahahaha! The only way you’re going to get rid of them is to take out the master control unit. Oh, but that’s not all... these last five will prove to be quite a bit more formidable than their other variants.”“Formidable? How, they’re just...” Bulma’s eyes widen in shock. “No... then those parts were-”“Indeed! It is time to reveal yourselves to the world! GOD DESTRONS, TRANSFORM AND RISE UP!”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WA2W-pnAqDk>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST Z #78...

>>2447051God Destrons? I'm at a loss Kato, but excited.We're still gonna' kick Gero's smug butt.And is there still any chance at all to redeem Broly?
>>2447051....Primus.>>2447060http://dragonball.wikia.com/wiki/God_GuardonI imagine their transformers of destron machines that turn into a version of this.
>>2447051Kato, you're great. Thanks for running.
Whoa I just had a cool idea.What if Goku went SS4 instead of Blue when we get to Super? Since he's actually got a handle on his Ape form and stuff.
>>2448496 One of the Fu related missions in Xenoverse has that happen.
>>2448565Oh shit for real? How's it turn out?
>>2448597Fu basically comes in when Goku and Vegeta are in that HTC-like place that Whis put them in and hits them with blutz waves.Despite not having tails the two turned SSJ 4.If you have certain characters with you, events change. For instance bringing in Goku has the SSJ Blue vs SSJ 4 battle we've always wanted.Gotenks has the two fuse to SSJ 4 Gogeta as well.
>>2448794Wait wait hold on, so you're telling me that Xenoverse 2 actually has a fucking DLC that actually takes into account who you take with you into battle?
>>2448806 Changes are based on your mentor I believe.
Rolled 20, 15, 3, 17, 17 = 72 (5d20)>>2447060>>2447068Glad to hear!A chance exists, but Broly still does not like you and still wants to murder Kakarot.>>2447064More or less, yes.>>2448806The Fu DLC is really great. It gives you split path options for each mentor you take into battle. For example, bringing Freeza with you when you fight Black and Zamasu has a path where Freeza declares that he's going to kill them AND whoever else is altering the timeline. If you bring Captain Ginyu though, he changes bodies with Black.Anyway, we're back!>>2447051Dr. Gero laughs menacingly as Tien tells you that the machines have somehow transformed into large robots... and not just any robots. They look like God Guardon. And the barriers around them are preventing them from recieving any serious damage, from the sound of things. Agh, but there’s still Ozotto out there, too.You next sense something above you all, and glancing upwards... you spot a small planet start to come into view. He’s here. Dr. Raichi’s almost on Earth. Good chance he’s got the planet itself shielded, too. This is it.>A. You’re ready, gather the team up and use Instant Transmission to confront him>B. Might need to find a way to deal with the God Gaurdons... Tien, does the Mafuba work on them?>C. Something else?
>>2448876>B. Might need to find a way to deal with the God Gaurdons... Tien, does the Mafuba work on them?>C. Something else?Samma Ditthi the small planet.
>>2448876‘Tien, does the Mafuba work on those things? You might need some way to seal them if they can’t be damaged.’‘Maybe, but it’ll be risky. I’m sure Dr. Raichi is well aware of that technique, especially if he’s brought Ozotto back.’ he replies.Agh, that’s a good point. Gero and Raichi might have a trick up their sleeves if the Mafuba is used. You look up at the approaching planet, breathing out “Samma Ditthi” as you sense what’s up there.You feel... rage. Vengeful, furious, but almost tranquil rage. Dr. Raichi’s up there, and he’s mad as hell. He wants to be rid of this world, the Saiyans on it, and every last speck of what he considers their “corruption.” And yet... there’s a strange sense of sadness, almost depression, helping fuel that rage. And if you didn’t know better... maybe even a smidge of pride, too.“Hmnh. Nappa, I expect to see you alive and well when I return, too.” Vegeta tells the large Saiyan, glancing his way. “And if not, die a death fitting of a Saiyan.”“Same to you, Vegeta.” Nappa responds with a smirk.“Maple.” Yosei’s voice calls to you, the fairy flying over. “While I can’t exactly help you fight them, I’d like to go too. I still recall some of the layout, and if I work with you and your brother, we’ll probably be able to avoid any traps he has set up.”>A. Good thinking, Yosei! Okay, let’s go!>B. I appreciate that, but it’s too dangerous. You should stay on Earth, just to be safe>C. Something else?
>>2449047>A. Good thinking, Yosei! Okay, let’s go!>C. Clothes beam + Enchantments on everyone including Yosei for protection.
>>2449047>>A. Good thinking, Yosei! Okay, let’s go!Ain't no sense in leaving her behind.
Rolled 1, 8, 14, 19, 20 = 62 (5d20)>>2449047“Good thinking, Yosei! Any objections?”“Nah, she’s got a point. It’s been so many years since we were last there, our hazy memories might not be the best roadmap.” Acer replies. “Welcome aboard, Yosei.”She smiles sweetly at him and sits down on your shoulder, everyone gathering around you, Peppa and Gohan holding your arm as Goku places his hand on your head. “Everyone ready?”“Yeah!”“Take care, guys.” Bulma gives you a thumb’s up. “And kick that old geezer’s butt!”You lock on to what you assume is Dr. Raichi’s Ki... gods, it’s been so long since you last felt it, but it’s definitely familiar. With one final goodbye, you teleport away. You arrive at a dark, ominous castle, everyone starting to look around. “Woooow, this place is really big!” Peppa comments. “I bet you could play hide-and-seek in here for hours!”“We’re not here for games. We’re here to kill that phantom for good.” Vegeta grunts at her.You look around, a little confused. “...Strange, I swear I could sense his Ki, but... he’s not here?”“Oh but I am, Maple Mahogany.” Dr.Raichi’s voice calls out to you.https://youtu.be/HopDawcD5HgLights flash on in the dark castle, revealing the image of Dr. Raichi... but transparent, spooky. Almost like... “WOAH! He’s a REAL ghost!” Peppa shouts out.The image then disappears, along with his Ki signature. Loud, mechanical footsteps stomping towards you all. “You are all in my domain now. Do you really think I’d let you just waltz in here like you owned the place? No, no I am afraid that you’re not getting to me so easily.” 10 machines approach you all. God Guardons. “Show me your resolve, or your world will die a slow and painful death.”Vegeta transforms. “Hah, if it’s resolve you want, Tuffle, I’ll show you resolve! Your end is at hand!”>A. Raio-Ten, smash them apart!>B. Focus on Dr. Raichi’s Ki, he can’t run forever!>C. Yosei, where do you suggest we head towards?>D. Whatever you do, don’t split the group!

Rolled 10, 20, 11, 10, 7 = 58 (5d20)>>2449103You power up, but only to keep your guard up. “Yosei, you’re up! We need to get moving! Where to?”The fairy floats around, trying to get a sense of direction. The machines advance forward slowly but steadily, Goku, Gohan, Peppa, Acer, Chi-Chi, and Chuu Lee all transforming as well. Piccolo removes his weighted clothes, 19 seems to focus herself carefully... and Vegeta bursts into the fray, slamming his fist into one of the machines hard enough to knock it off its feet. “Fools! Don’t just stand there, fight!”Almost immediately, the other nine lock on to Vegeta and open fire on him, forcing him back. He’s able to guard himself well enough, but he’s still forced back. At the very least, the incident gives Yosei the time she needs to locate a path. “There! Down there! The tunnels!” She points out, flying to a level below the one you’re on.You fly after her.“We need to stick together, guys! That means you too, Vegeta, come on! They’re a distraction, Raichi’s the real threat!”“Don’t boss me around, Tuffle!” he growls out, but still follows after.Yosei leads you all through a series of tunnels, more of the God Guardons attempting to chase after you. They’re tough, but not quite tough enough to force you to face them. What’s more, they’re a good deal slower than you all. One attempts to burst through the floor below you, raising its arm and preparing to unleash a barrage of energy attacks from its gun arm at Yosei! “GUARDON CRUSHER!”You think quickly, bringing up your Spirit Bits and forming a barrier around her. Gohan and Peppa bolt down to it, kicking right through it. The fairy breathes out a sigh of relief, continuing on her way. Finally you seem to reach an opening... and a familiar figure stands before you. “I see that your companion is more capable than I gave her credit for.” Artificial Human #16 comments in a cold, mechanical voice. “I also see that #19 has chosen a new path.”The robot girl looks up at him. “Would I be correct to presume that our creator is close by?”“You would indeed.” Gero’s voice calls out from above. You spot the man sitting in a throne-like chair, decorated but quite menacing. “Thank you for fulfilling your final purpose, 19.”She... seems to glare at him. “We have much I would like to discuss. But I doubt you are in the mood for talking.”16 takes a fighting stance. “He is not.”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z5jjb95D5rU>A. We don’t need to fight, 16>B.

Our allies have been getting some great rolls tonight.
Rolled 14, 5, 20, 16, 18 = 73 (5d20)>>2449311“We don’t need to fight, 16. You don’t have to do this.” You give him a friendly smile.“Have to?” He looks down his nose at you. “You misunderstand. I am not doing this out of obligation. I do this because it is my choice.”You use the Spirit Bits to form a barrier around Yosei again as Goku flies forward, clashing with 16. To the android’s credit, he’s exceptionally durable, and holds his ground as Goku begins to attack. Chi-chi meanwhile focuses on Dr. Gero, sending her Spirit Bits out to him... only for her to notice that they stop in midair around him. Dr. Gero stands up, chuckling menacingly as he starts to fly down, carrying Chi-chi’s attack with him. “Did you really think I wouldn’t have a backup plan for this?”To his surprise, Chi-chi smirks, then crosses her arms. “I learned my lesson facing Aza all those years ago. BURST!”Caught off-guard, Gero doesn’t quite have the time to defend himself as the Spirit Bits all explode around him. Piccolo seems to give Chi-chi an approving nod, advancing on 16 as Goku faces off with him. Chuu Lee stays with you and the kids as 19 starts to advance on Dr. Gero.“Surrendering would make this easier on you.” the android girl tells him.The doctor dusts himself off, firing beams from his eyes at Chi-chi. She’s hit and knocked back, but keeps her composure, charging and firing a Kamehameha quickly. Gero holds his hand up, revealing he has a Ki Absorber implanted in it like 19, but again, Chi-chi proves to have a trick up her sleeve, bending the Kamehameha upwards and back down again, smacking Dr. Gero in the back. Acer finally jumps in, kicking Gero in the gut and sending him sliding across the floor.Goku and Piccolo meanwhile keep up their assault on 16, the android attempting to fire another Rocket Punch as Goku moves in, only for Piccolo to stretch his arm and grab the fist out of the air, sending it back at 16 right in time for Goku to reach him and ram his fist into 16‘s gut, firing a Geist Magnum in 16‘s face as Piccolo grabbed him with both arms and slammed him into Dr. Gero.19 stands before them, resolute. “As strong as the modifications have made you, you have no chance against all of th-” She stops herself, closing her eyes. “...all of us.”(cont.)
Rolled 7, 13, 6, 9, 12 = 47 (5d20)>>2449558Dr. Gero glares at her. “I programmed you better than that, 19. Being around them isn’t damaging your memory that badly, is it?”“You are stalling time for Dr. Raichi.” she deduces. “Why?”A loud, thunderous stomp echoes through the area. And another. And another. Slowly, a figure approaches you... immense power emmanating from it. Gods... is... is that what you think it is? Even Goku seems surprised by the Ki he feels. “Holy cow, this... this thing’s even stronger than Broly!”Dr. Gero laughs confidently. “Looks like the real fun is about to begin.”>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST Z #78...

>>2449562It's happening!Cool to see everyone kicking some ass, at least.
>>2449562Time to see if big brother Hatchiyak is just like his other Gohan Red timeline counterpart.
>>2450211Bet he's even stronger. Hell, if Broly was on par with SS2 Goku, and Hatchiyak is stronger than that, this is gonna be a tough one.
>>2450394I wonder how strong he is compared to the Hero of Justice Hatchiyak, that we accidentally made after our fight with King Vegeta in the Time Room.

Dr. Gero and #16 stand beside him as he finally stops, looking over you all. His strength is... immense. Goku’s right, even Broly’s power pales in comparison to him. Dr. Raichi’s definitely given him some upgrades, even compared to his future counterpart. However, you stand resolute. “So you finally come to face us, Hatchiyak.”His yellow eyes focus on you, then look to Acer. “You still have a chance to make up for your failures. Surrender.”“Hell no!” Acer shouts in defiance. “How ‘bout YOU surrender!”Raditz powers up and jumps next to Goku. “Or you can just let us smash you like we were planning.”Confidently, Vegeta points at the red giant of a fighter. “Listen now and listen well, Tuffle trash! I, Vegeta, the prince of all Saiyans, am going to finish what my father started. If you want to continue with this pointless struggle, at least try to put up a fight, unlike the rest of your pathetic race.”Peppa and Gohan stand with you and Chuu Lee, their golden auras glowing and sparking. Yosei turns to you, still shielded. “Maple, it’s still quite a ways to Dr. Raichi’s lab.”>A. We make our stand here. Get to safety, Yosei!>B. Acer, Chi-chi, with us! We’re tracking him down!>C.

Chuu Lee, kids, let’s go!”“RIGHT!” The three of them dash forward with you, Goku and Raditz facing Hatchiyak as well, Vegeta preparing a powerful blast, while Acer and Chi-chi continue to fight Dr. Gero with 19, Piccolo holding off 16.As big as he is, though, Hatchiyak is exceptionally fast, managing to dodge Goku and Raditz with ease. What’s more, just as Vegeta fires off his attack, Hatchiyak puts up a barrier, completely nullifying any damage. You stop, breathing out “Samma Ditthi” as you try to sense what he’s doing. Agh... even just feeling it out, the sense of vengeance, like hundreds of thousands of souls crying out against a horrific injustice, screaming out to be avenged. It’s like he’s almost fueled by this hatred, and wants nothing more than to bring an end to those he hates so much.Hatchiyak then crosses his arms, charging up power. “REVENGER CANNON!”A tremendous beam blasts forth from his arms. Your foresight gives you ample opportunity to dodge, Goku and Raditz just barely making it out of the way. Vegeta gets hit with the full force of the beam, doing his best to guard but still getting knocked away. However, not only do Gohan and Peppa dodge, they even surprise Hatchiyak, flying around the beam at full speed and both slamming their little fists into his face before he has time to bring his barrier up again, Chuu Lee coming after them, a tremendous amount of Ki focused into her arm, the Ki focus of her Kaio-Ten giving it a massive aura. With a ferocious yell, Chuu Lee thrusts her fist forward and knocks Hatchiyak back.He skids across the ground before flipping and pushing himself back up, slightly surprised... but not as damaged as you or anyone else hoped.>A. Attack! Full power!>B. Bait him into using that attack again!>C. CLOTHES BEAM!>D. Ki blast!>E. Sword strike!>F. Something else?
>>2451099Okay so, he has to like, charge that fucking cannon up right? >B. Bait him into using that attack again!And then just right before he's about to fire it off, BOOM! We hit him with everything we got.
>>2451099>Agh... even just feeling it out, the sense of vengeance, like hundreds of thousands of souls crying out against a horrific injustice, screaming out to be avenged. It’s like he’s almost fueled by this hatred, and wants nothing more than to bring an end to those he hates so much....but if he completes his revenge. Hatchiyak won't have the anger or motivation to continue. He'll literally have nothing to hate and therefore shouldn't exist.In a way, the Saiyans and those they 'corrupted' actually give Raichi and Hatchiyak purpose and meaning. Without that hatred they won't...nay can't exist.>F. Count how long it takes his barrier to defend and how long it takes him to charge up too attack. Analyze him.Also Samma Vaca.
>>2451112Sword, I have a feeling you and me have both read Dragon Ball Multiverse.
>>2451106>>2451112Both of these. Check how long it takes to fire, then blast him!

Rolled 20, 4, 3, 16, 5 = 48 (5d20)>>2451099You need an ace in the hole with this. You shout out “Samma Vaca!” at Hatchiyak to try and lower his strength. Goku and Raditz go back into action, but even with his lowered strength, Goku only barely has an edge against Hatchiyak. Chuu Lee falls back to try and help Vegeta, Gohan and Peppa moving back to you, asking if you have a plan. You tell them to wait with you, the three of you are going to bat Hatchiyak out into using his attack again.Hatchiyak finally starts to overpower Goku and Raditz, smacking the two of them aside, Raditz crashing through the floor as Goku barely manages to stop himself. Meanwhile, Dr. Gero is fighting a losing battle against Acer, Chi-chi, and 19, and thanks to the Kaio-ken, Piccolo’s able to trounce 16 handily. Still, Hatchiyak is the real threat. He brings his arms together... aha, here he goes. Goku flies back at Hatchiyak, trying to deliver a roundhouse kick to his head, only to miss, Hatchiyak headbutting him in return. You count it out as you try to come to his aid... and even as Raditz tries to grab Hatchiyak from behind, he’s kicked in the gut, then flung at Goku.“REVENGER CANNON!” A beam blasts forth, catching Goku and Raditz together, you, Gohan, and Peppa all barely making it out of the way in time. The blast leaves a massive hole in the dark, murky castle’s walls. But... you’ve got a time limit for that. 15 seconds.“DAAAAAD!” Peppa screams out, catching Hatchiyak’s attention.He starts to run at you... and a Ki blast explodes at his face. It does little damage, but it does draw his attention away. “I’M NOT DEAD YET, YOU BASTARD!” Vegeta roars, bringing his hands together. “I’LL SEE YOU IN HELL! FINAL-”“GEIST MAGNUM!” Hatchiyak declares. A blast fires forth, hitting Vegeta in the head hard enough that he’s knocked back. Hatchiyak then stomps on him, grabbing Vegeta by the neck and flinging him at a pillar. He starts to charge once more...(cont.)
Rolled 17, 17, 7, 14, 4 = 59 (5d20)>>2451295https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mkNZaC3nNYIBut you’re not letting him finish this time. You bring out your Spirit Bits, swirling them around in front of you, readying the Lunar Siren as well. Telling them what you’re planning, Gohan and Peppa start to charge up a pair of Kamehamehas with you, and to top it off, you clear your mind and focus entirely on this, declaring, "Samma Samadhi!” to boost you, Gohan, and Peppa even higher. Gohan and Peppa press against you. 12... 13... 14... NOW!You teleport right below Hatchiyak. “RASEN!” Peppa starts.“DENJIN!” you add in.“KAMEHAMEHAAAAA!” Gohan roars, the three of you all blasting Hatchiyak with as much power as you can muster. Swirling beams engulf him, blasting upwards, tunneling through the castle... no, more than that. You blast out a massive chunk of it... and you feel Hatchiyak’s power start to drop.You pant heavily. Now THAT left a mark on him. But... it’s not enough to bring him down just yet. But oh boy does he look pissed.>A. Heal Goku, Raditz and Vegeta up, Phoenix Tear!>B.

>>2451401>>2451402Ouchies. Hatchiyak is going to use someone as a club at this rate.
Rolled 9, 1, 15, 4, 14 = 43 (5d20)>>2451402That's... not good. Writing...
>>2451408And the tide is turning for Hatchiyak and Ghost Dad.....Fuck.Guess bad things are here now.
>>2451413Nah nah we got this man.Like I said, when the chips are down we'll fuse with Vegeta.And like, gain no height whatsoever.
>>2451417We'd gain at least a foot in hair alone. Adding Maple's hair it could be even bigger.
>>2451425Shit I need to figure out what a Vegeta/Maple fusion would look like.
>>2451457So we'd become Arctus' girl?....I'm okay with that.
Rolled 11, 11, 10, 8, 18 = 58 (5d20)>>2451297https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZELZ7ofkGQsLocating Goku, Raditz, and Vegeta, you form three Phoenix Tears and launch them at the Saiyans to get them back up. Next you shout out, “Piccolo, we could use a bit of help here!”He quickly flings 16 aside, the red aura of the Kaio-ken flaring around him as he strikes the monster of vengeance... but to Piccolo’s surprise, Hatchiyak is still able to block it, in spite of his injured state. You see 19 holding Gero down, Acer and Chi-chi turning to see it... and Gero begins to laugh. “You really couldn’t have thought that was ALL our greatest creation was capable of, could you? Hatchiyak! Phase 2!”Hatchiyak releases an Explosive Wave, knocking Piccolo away... and starts to grow in size. He becomes a true titan of rage, towering over you all. And... he starts charging a Revenger Cannon again! You wait another 15 seconds, then fire an MP Buster at Hatchiyak! ...But while the attack WEAKENS the beam, his increase in size is matched with an increase in strength, too. A gigantic blast follows, catching nearly the entirety of the castle behind you. You dodge just in time, but the beam still catches a lot of your allies in its wake.Piccolo’s only barely able to endure the blast thanks to a Kaio-ken x20, but Goku, Raditz, and Vegeta are again knocked back down. Raditz and Vegeta barely manage to stand up, struggling to hold on, Goku getting to his feet, but even with you healing him, the blast has taken quite a toll on him, Chuu Lee in about the same state. If they were hit with a full power blast...“STOP HURTING MY DAAAAAD!” Peppa roars, thwacking the giant Hatchiyak with her Power Pole, Gohan charging at him with the Shinespark, repeatedly assaulting the titan.With the kids holding him off, Piccolo gets an idea... and he too grows in size, matching Hatchiyak’s increase, the Kaio-ken flaring around him again. “You’ll need to do better than that if you want to take us down!”Surprisingly, Yosei flies up towards you. “W-what’re you doing?! Get back to cover while you still can!” you tell the fairy.“No no, Maple, this might be our chance!” she declares.>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST Z #78...

>>2451527God yes, that was amazing.Still, I'm completely serious about us and Vegeta having to fuse at one point. I've got it stuck in my head now.I mean, as far as matching heights go...
>>2451527Awww yeah, giant Piccolo.Haven't seen that in awhile. Well. Atleast in this quest.
>>2451527>Giant HatchiyakOh shit>Giant PiccoloOh hell yes!Good times were had, Kato. Thanks for running.
So how do we fight pure hatred?With love.Instead of beating Raichi, we should forgive him. Perhaps some part of the real Raichi is in there that we can get through too. Maybe we can teach him to forgive the Saiyans.Just like we said we would do for Tao. After all beyond all that hate and anger. Is only sadness...
>>2452403 Can we go G-Gundam and do the Erupting Shuffle Alliance Attack if we do fight Ghost Dad/Hatchiyak to death?
>>2452871I'd be up for that.

I might be able to locate it, but I won’t be able to do anything about it myself, but I could guide you to it. We’re both relatively small, we just need an opening...”>A.

Well at least everyone else passed...despite the ones.
>>2453565Eh, we work better when we're on the brink of failure.
Rolled 9, 15, 14, 15, 4 = 57 (5d20)>>2453346“Yosei, I’ve got an idea. I’ll provide a distraction, and help you get in there. Once inside, I’ll teleport to you.” You bring up your Spirit Bits again, forming a barrier around the fairy. “Good luck.”She nods, flying away, guided by the barrier as you try to draw Hatchiyak’s attention. You land on Piccolo’s shoulder, running across his arm and, with a Spirit Stinger prepped, you hit Hatchiyak in the face with a Fractal Strike with as much power as you can muster! It’s enough to get him to shout out in pain, Yosei flying down his open mouth quickly. Okay, it worked!...And Hatchiyak’s attention is now completely on you. He blasts you with a beam from his forehead, knocking you out of the sky. Goku manages to catch you as you fall, at least. “You okay, Maple?”You wince but power through the pain. “B-been through worse... how about you, monkey boy?”“Eheh, same... but we knew this wasn’t going to be easy.” He looks up at Piccolo grappling with Hatchiyak, smacking his head into the other giant’s, only for Hatchiyak to return his attack with a fist to the gut. It’s a good thing he’s able to manage the Kaio-ken for so long, but even for him, it’s going to take a toll on his body. Gohan and Peppa continue to assist Piccolo, darting around Hatchiyak and hitting him with a barrage of Ki blasts.“HRRRAAAAAAAAHH!” Vegeta roars out, dashing in front of Hatchiyak’s face and placing his hand forward. “TAKE THIS! SUPER VEGETA’S BIG BANG-”The giant grabs Vegeta and instead flings him like a Super Saiyan baseball at Piccolo’s head. Hatchiyak then brings his arms together, like he’s charging again. Piccolo attempts to use the Raio-ken to outspeed the other giant... but Hatchiyak isn’t firing a Revenger Cannon. After his 15 seconds are up, and Gohan and Peppa manage to hit him with their sword and Power Pole, Hatchiyak flings his arms out. “REVENGER EXPLOSION!”You and Goku shields yourselves from the attack, but Piccolo, Peppa, and Gohan are all caught by it, Vegeta being knocked away like a ragdoll, falling to the ground, his body severely injured. Most everyone else was able to keep out of the blast radius, but an attack like that... ‘Yosei, tell me there’s good news!’(cont.)
Rolled 9, 10, 13, 18, 10 = 60 (5d20)>>2453703‘I think I’ve found it! Maple, come on!’“I’ll be back, monkey boy.” You tap two fingers to your head and teleport to Yosei, ending up in what you assume to be Hatchiyak’s chest area... and in the center, you see some sort of beating mechanism, like a mechanical heart. Hatchiyak’s core! ...But you get a flash of foresight. You’re not alone in here. Tendrils seem to erupt from the floor, piercing through the barrier around the fairy and grabbing her. They try to restrain you too, and even at full strength, you struggle to break free.“Don’t tell me that’s the best you’ve been able to manage in all these years.” A voice you haven’t heard in a very, very long time critically calls to you from Hatchiyak’s core. “I thought I trained you and Acer better than that.”You... you can’t really believe it. “...T-teacher?!”>A. We could REALLY use your help right now!>B. What’re you doing in here?! Is this a trick?>C. Just focus on breaking free!>D. Something else?
>>2453706Curse Breaker."What took you so long sensei?"
>>2453706>>A. We could REALLY use your help right now!>TEACHER!
>>2453724I mean did Raichi really not think we'd know he'd use Izumi against us? I feel like we'd have a contingency before even he dropped us off for that.
>>2453729Maybe he is using her as a power source or something. Or at least a hostage.
>>2453738Oh god we're gonna' have to kill teacher aren't we?
>>2453742Well, she is already dead.
>>2453742>>2453755...It's what I'd do. Suggesting curse breaker to free her or at least exorcise her is our best chance to end things without having her kick the shit out of us.Izumi is scary.Though we will tell her about our niece, Izumi hopefully.

Rolled 15 (1d20)>>2453767You cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. To obtain, something of equal value must be lost. That is alchemy's first law of Equivalent Exchange.

Rolled 16, 10, 7, 3, 7 = 43 (5d20)>>2453706https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ygbE4SgFZvQYou struggle against the tendrils. “TEACHER! C-could REALLY use your help right now!”“What’s with that attitude?!” her voice shouts out to you. “You still need me holding your hand the whole way?! No, we both know you’ve gotten stronger than that. You and your brother. Now COME ON, MAPLE!”You just barely manage to wiggle one of your arms free, pointing two fingers at the pulsing core. “H-heh... good to hear from you again. Well... let’s get you out of there first. CURSE BREAKER!”Firing at the core of Hatchiyak causes it to shudder, beating erratically. It starts to shrivel up, shrinking away... and revealing her. The tendrils holding you and Yosei squeeze tighter as Hatchiyak seems to roar out in pain, shaking and stumbling. To your surprise, Chuu Lee teleports in as well, skillfully chopping and breaking away the restraints. She catches Yosei as the fairy’s freed, healing her up as you manage to get to your feet.Izumi smiles proudly at you. “So... this is her, huh?” she asks, looking at Chuu Lee.Chuu Lee turns her head in surprise and confusion as she notices the other Tuffle woman. “E-eh? Wait... you... you must be...”“The first Teacher Acer and I ever had. Izumi.” you confirm for her. “It’s... been so long, Teacher.”She winces as the core starts to beat even more erratically, the entire internal structure of Hatchiyak becoming more and more unstable. “Look, reunions are nice and all, but you need to get this over with! This one is tied to me, so hurry it up, Maple!”...Oh...“I SAID NOW, MAPLE!”>A. Okay...>B. Wait, “this one?”>C. C-can’t we free you from it?!>D. Something else?

Rolled 9 (1d20)>>2454068But the world isn't perfect and the law is incomplete. Equivalent exchange doesn't encompass everything that goes on here, but I still choose to believe in its principle. That all things do come at a price.
Rolled 15 (1d20)>>2454068
Rolled 6 (1d20)>>2454068Let's do this!
Rolled 20 (1d20)>>2454070>>2454070That there's an ebb and a flow, a cycle, that the pain we went through did have a reward and that anyone who's determined and perseveres will get something of value in return, even if it's not what they expected.
Rolled 16 (1d20)>>2454068>>2454117I don't think of equivalent exchange as a law of the world anymore. I think of it as a promise, between my brobro that we'll see this through the end.

With a smile, you tell Izumi, “Okay, Teacher. Fusion?”The other redhead nods. “Fusion.”The two of you preform the dance, your long, wild red hair flowing behind you as you power up, the calmer aura of the Kaio-Ten surrounding you as you bring your focus to your hands. Izumi’s surprised... but she understands, and appreciates, the gesture. You tell Yosei to hold on to you. There’s almost a slight hint of hesitation... not just from Maple, but from Chuu Lee as well. But your combined mind knows this has to be done.“...Proud of you.” Izumi breathes out. “And... tell your brother I appreciated that, Maple.”“Of course. Izumi, it’s not goodbye forever. We’ll meet again some day... just, hopefully, not too soon.” You quickly fire a Kamehameha at full power, destroying Hatchiyak’s core, tearing a hole through his chest. You fly out of there, floating above the giant as he starts to erupt with energy.With no source, no soul at the center to keep him together, Hatchiyak explodes in a blinding light. Gero can’t seem to believe it. 16 manages to stand once more, his face cold and expressionless... but even with that, he seems to know how much the tide has turned.Gero slams his fist into the ground. “Damn it! DAMN IT! You... you ingrates! How is it that time and time again, you keep doing this?!”“It’s over, Gero. Only you and Raichi are left.” Acer tells the old cyborg.“YOU! Oh I’ve had more than enough of YOU!” Gero growls out.“Please surrender.” 19 requests of him. “Your options are running out.”“...Hahahaha.” Gero starts to laugh. “Hahahaha! HAHAHAHAHAHA!”19‘s eyes go wide as she spots 16 smirk. She looks over to you all. “They have activated their self-destruct sequences.”>A. Everyone, gather ‘round and let’s get out of here!>B.

You keep the Kaio-Ten’s focus in your hands and build up Lightning and Wind within them. You then prepare an MP Buster, raising your hands above your head, then bringing them down and releasing the technique. “19, get out of the way!”She leaps off of Gero, flying as quickly as she can upwards, away from Gero and 16 as you release the attack, a sort of... EMP Buster, you’d guess you could call it. 16 and Gero go quiet. “...W-what? What did you do?!”“H-hoooh... that was close.” you breathe out in relief.Gero tries to move. “Tch... you’ve forced my systems to shut down. Clever, clever... but not enough. As soon as I reboot, I’ll be taking you with me you damned abomination!”“There will be no need for that.” an aged, irritated, tired, disappointed... and yet tranquilly furious voice tells him. “Save yourself the trouble.”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CC8h6QD-jFkAcer and Chi-chi regroup with you, 19 touching down once the EMP effect’s been diminished enough for her to safely return. All 10 of you stare down at him, floating along on a red orb, several more orbs hovering nearby... inside them, you can sense lingering, unquenchable hatred. You catch a glimpse of something inside one of them... the spirit of Freeza. And another, Cooler. Slug, Turles, Bongo, King Piccolo, Magil... this is where they’ve all been collected, the TRUE spirits behind the phantoms. Acer takes a few steps forward. “You finally show yourself, huh?”“I have been awaiting this moment for so, so many years... my children.” Dr. Raichi spreads his arm. “Welcome home.”>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST Z #78...

Just our luck, though, we found a better one.” You let our aura flare around you. “One you’re trying to destroy, Dr. Raichi.”“A necessity.” he sighs out, his voice heavy and tired. He then looks over to Goku and Raditz, the exhaustion on his face fading away slowly, revealing a glare of hatred and malice. “To ensure that a certain injustice is corrected. To finish what Freeza started. To end the line of barbarism once and for all.”“And so you’d take the Earthlings out with them?” you and Chi-chi both ask him. “You’d be just as bad as the Saiyans who started all this.”As he responds, Raichi’s voice doesn’t match the expression on his face. It’s still melancholic, almost... depressed. “I will be the one ending this. Once and for all.”“And what about them?!” Chi-chi waves her arm over to Gohan and Peppa. “What about Izumi?!”Dr. Raichi sighs again. “I can, at the very least, guarantee your child will survive. She is young, she can be helped. The other two... there is nothing I can do for them.”Peppa readies her Power Pole. “You’re gonna get your butt kicked if you underestimate us!”>A.

Phoenix Tear might not be enough, but... with the power of fusion, you’ve got something better up your sleeve! You dash back a bit, getting in the middle of your group, releasing your energy in a sphere of healing energy, like a sort of explosive wave. “Phoenix... Aria!”Everyone sees their strength restored, even the badly injured Vegeta behind you all is able to get back up. Gohan brings out his own sword, and charges at Dr. Raichi with Peppa... only for, somehow, Hatchiyak to reappear in front of them, blocking the two and knocking their weapons away! Thinking quick, Goku brings out the original Power Pole. “PEPPA, HERE!” he shouts as he tosses the staff at his daughter.Peppa grabs it, roaring out, “Power Pole, EXTEND!” and smashing it down on Hatchiyak. The red phantom of hatred didn’t quite expect that, pushed back by the strike, Gohan following through by landing right in front of him and delivering a powerful uppercut.“Samma Kammanta! Samma Ajiva!” you shout out next, helping your allies recover further. “Goku, Raditz, you know what to do!”“Right, Maple! ...Er, Chu-ple, was it?” Goku chuckles slightly.“Going with 'Mae-le’ still. Now hurry!”Raditz and Goku prepare themselves as Piccolo roars out “KAIO-KEN! TIMES... 20!” and tries to help Gohan and Peppa... and the phantoms of Cooler, Freeza, King Cold, Lord Slug, and Turles all appear around him. Piccolo smirks, splitting into five and each taking one on.“Fuuuu...”“-SION!”“HAAAA!”The Saiyan brothers reunite once more, immediately powering back up to their Super Saiyan state, and then pushing even further beyond it, ascending. They stand by you confidently. “Okay Raichi, you wanted our best, so here it comes!”But right as they declare that, a furious Vegeta bolts at Dr. Raichi, ready to strike him down. His fist smashes into a barrier around the Tuffle phantom. “Tch, how brutish and simple. Even your father knew better than to try such a blind attack.”“You’ll learn soon enough that I’m WAY beyond my father, Raichi!” Vegeta keeps assaulting the barrier, trying to break through. Wait... no, he’s trying something else. Is... is he trying to enrage himself enough to transform?Well, no time to ponder on that. You next look to 19. “Get Gero and 16 out of here while you still can.”She nods, grabbing the both of them and flying off. Okay Mae-le, time to do this!>A. Help Vegeta with Raichi!>B. Stick with Acer and Chi-chi!>C. Rakarot, let’s show Hatchiyak what the power of fusion can do!>D. The phantoms fighting Piccolo need to be dealt with, quickly!>E. Something else?

Rolled 12, 2, 16, 19, 6 = 55 (5d20)>>2462200https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ItDoOwHyU2c“GOHAN!” you shout to the boy, tossing him Maple’s sword. He notices and catches it, nodding at you confidently. The fused Saiyan grins with excitement... and you have to admit, you’re getting a little excited too. “Rakarot, let’s show these two just how strong the power of fusion is! Focus on Hatchiyak!”“All right!”“Acer, Chi-chi, focus on Dr. Raichi! We’ll back you up when we can!”“Got it!” The blonde Tuffle brings out his sword, Chi-chi’s Spirit Bits flying around you all as the four of you blast forth. Vegeta continues to try to smash Dr. Raichi’s barrier, now backed up by Acer and Chi-chi.Hatchiyak is able to push away the kids for a moment, but leaves himself open to the fused Saiyan drop-kicking him into the ground. Rakarot flips away as the phantom of vengeance tries to get back up. Hatchiyak is strong, sure, but Rakarot, ascended past the limits of a Super Saiyan, with the fighting spirit of Goku and Raditz mixed together, proves to be a challenge even for him. Hatchiyak’s fist strikes Rakarot’s jaw, but the Saiyan’s fist manages to hit him back in a cross-counter. Thinking quick, he then grabs Hatchiyak by the arm, flinging him down again, jumping up and delivering an elbow drop onto the monster’s back.You see your opening as Hatchiyak gets back up, grabs Rakarot by the face and tries to charge a Ki blastas he’s holding the Saiyan. You hit him with a palm strike to the back of the neck, then, using Instant Transmission, teleport under Hatchiyak’s arm and chop him in the rib, causing him to release Rakarot. You build up energy into your fist, setting the Kaio-Ten’s focus there. “Phantom...” You then slam your fist as hard as you can into Hatchiyak’s gut, mixing the energy with Wind magic, pushing upwards into an uppercut as you release your built up power, a small, focused, spiraling tornado of energy hurling Hatchiyak into the air as you roar, “SHOTENKEN!”Rakarot jumps above you, flying up to Hatchiyak and delivering a sledgehammer blow to the monster. You then notice that Dr. Raichi’s barrier starts to fade... but they need more. Just a little something to help break through. You bring out your own Spirit Bits, then in one hand charge up Wind magic, the other, Lighting. Telepathically, you inform Acer and Chi-chi to hit Raichi with their strongest attack. You bring your hands together. “Shinkuuu... Denjiiiinnn...!”Raichi tries to fire back at Vegeta, only for the Saiyan prince to dodge, bringing his hands together. “YOU DIE BY MY HAND! HHRRRAAAAHH! FINAL...”“NOW!” you yell as loud as you can.“LOVE-LOVE!” Acer and Chi-chi declare together.“FLAAAAAAASH!” Vegeta releases a full-power blast.You teleport right above Acer and Chi-chi, your Spirit Bits bringing up an amplifying gate, the three of you yelling out, “KAMEHAMEHAAAAAA!”(cont.)
Rolled 8, 12, 17, 19, 18 = 74 (5d20)>>2462653The four beams meet and, amplified even further, overwhelm Dr. Raichi’s barrier. As the combined beam blasts through him... Dr. Raichi seems to be silent. Not yelling defiantly as he’s finally brought to an end. No, he seems to accept it. You hear his voice. “So... this is how it has to be... heh, Maple... Acer... you’ve done me proud...”You feel his Ki vanish. He’s... he’s gone. Vegeta breathes heavily, a very slight smirk appearing on his face. Vegeta looks up, satisfied. “When you see my father in Hell, Raichi, make sure you let him know who killed you.”Acer and Chi-chi hug, sharing a brief kiss. You land, taking in what all just happened. You clap your hands together. “Hope you can finally rest in peace... ghost dad.”...Wait, why are the orbs he’s been carrying around still floating? You look over to Piccolo. He’s... still fighting the phantoms Dr. Raichi has summoned. But, if Raichi’s gone, they should be vanishing too. What in the world...?“Saiyans...”“Damn, you really don’t know when to quit.” Rakarot comments, Gohan and Peppa standing beside him.“SAIYANS...”One of the orbs crashes to the ground. You feel a jolt in Hatchiyak’s Ki.“SAIYANS!”The rest of the orbs crash to the ground, one by one, as a light engulfs Hatchiyak’s body.“SAAAIIIIYYYAAANNS!”Power seems to explode out from him, forcing you to shield your eyes. When the light around him fades, you first notice that his strength skyrocketed even higher... above even yours and Rakarot’s. Hatchiyak touches down, his body not only refreshed and restored... but transformed.Looks like the real fight is about to begin.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1F7MwxJ43Vk>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST Z #78 END.>Twitter account is @KatoQm, will have status updates there>Got some questions for the QM?
