The trashiest of trash, because fuck it, I'm BORED and hyped for 904 Good Goddamn you are so tired. Your eyelids weigh down heavy, like someone’s tied lead weights to your eyelashes. Your limbs and extremities can barely move you’re so drained, your fingertips ache from typing away at the keyboard for so goddamn long. You give a long and drawn out yaawwwn and blink the drowsiness from your no doubt bloodshot eyes, checking the clock.3:45 PM.Between the numerous tabs open on your browser to the papers strewn about the room, you’re fairly certain that you’ve hit the minimum word count for the assignment. Looking down you see you’ve written-GOD FUCKING DAMN IT YOU’RE 200 WORDS OFF!!Alright. Calm down. The assignment was due last midnight anyway so you’re already late. God fucking damn it. You’ve had it with this goddamn assignment, so you type the letter ‘a’ till the minimum word count is hit, highlight them all and set not only their color but the highlight to white. Bam. Now that you think about it, what was this assignment about to begin with? Something about sailors?‘Explain from the given text how Piracy affected the world at large’Oh right, you had almost forgot around the 7th or 8th paragraph. Well piracy is hardly an issue now a days, unless you count Somalians. It can’t be just you that thinks they look like they all have Edema right? It can’t just be you, it’s too widespread not to notice. Piracy back in the 1600 and 1700, now that was interesting. Blackbeard, Henry Avery, Ching Shih. You’ll be honest, you focused way more on the past than you did on the contemporary.(1/?)
>>2527416There were a few bullets you had to check off in order to get this paper to pass, their impact on history, the modern day, and pop culture. The whole romanticization of Piracy was always a bit weird to you. Seriously, pirates would spend days on end out at sea just to snag one merchant vessel, and that’s if they were lucky! Not to mention all the scurvy, Navy crack downs, and god knows what else. So when you had to bring up piracy in pop culture, you could have just settled for Johnny Depp’s sea noir masterpiece Pirates of the Caribbean, but the you remembered your professor’s deep hate for Geoffrey Rush, and decided against it. Thus that left you with only one option. Eichiro Oda’s grand series that had started a year after your birth.One Piece. Yeah…>You didn’t read up on it that much, hell you’ve only seen a few clips here and there. Anime in general is iffy for you, having only watched the odd episode of Dragon Ball or Naruto. You don’t really own any Japanese paraphernilia. You speak no Japanese. (No Weeb Filth)>You’ve watched the series and even read abit of the manga. You’ve not progressed any further than the Saboady Arc in either though, which sucks cause people say it got really good after Amazon Lily. You’re a bit of an anime fan, having watched the JoJo adaptation and that shitty Berzerk remake. Heck, you even know a bit of Japanese. (Moderate Weeb)>You’ve been reading the series ever since you bought Volume 1 in a Barnes and Noble when you were 5. Gundam, JJBA, Initial D, Evangelion, hell you even spent a few summers in Japan, to visit weeb mecca, Akihabara. You even speak enough Japanese to hold a conversation. (Full Blast Weeb) (2/?)
(( Welcome all to my first quest! Now here’s the thing I say first quest but I’ve been playing table tops and DMing for a while, since 2012, and a friend of mine suggested I try this out. I’ve been reading up a bit on some “good examples” of QMing, Homeless Mutant and the like, and noticed there was much love for DBZ but rarely any OP quests, hence this. The system will be a Best of Three on a d20 system using the following, https://www.scribd.com/document/122518053/One-Piece-D20-2-0-0 , don’t worry about the sheet for now, we’ll get to the rolling soon. For now, get to voting!))

>>2527425Btw, if you wanna get more people in your quests try starting ur threads at something like 6 pm est. Most people on /qst/ are murrifags.
>>2527432Freakin' figures, I'm stuck on fucking Greenwich time and if I want anyone to notice me I have to stay up till 12 pm. Damn Amerifats.
>>2527423The first. Now what the fuck do I do again
>>2527435Well it would help if you read the system here >>2527427 but for the most part you just vote. I'll wait till I have at least one more person, then I'll get to writing.
>>2527423Let's do this Boyo.>You’ve watched the series and even read abit of the manga. You’ve not progressed any further than the Saboady Arc in either though, which sucks cause people say it got really good after Amazon Lily.

>>2527427>>2527435>>2527446And we now have three people, looks like the first option wins out! Writing now, but I'd like to ask you a second vote while I write, for those familiar you'll know Devil Fruits are a critical part of One Piece. So the question needs to be asked...Do you wish to START with a Devil Fruit, Yes or No?>Yes>NoAnother roll will insue to determine if you land yourself one, and nothing but a nat 20 will do. Another roll will follow to determine the rarity of the fruit, 1-15 Paramecia, 16-19 Zoan, and 20 is Logia.Ill get to writing while you decide.
>>2527454Nope~We do this with hard work then I am satisfied if others want to get that devil fruit later
>>2527423>You’ve watched the series and even read abit of the manga.

>>2527454>nothing but a nat 20 will doSure lets give it a go. Nothing to lose.
>>2527454Can we roll for fruit type and if we don't like it pick no fruit?
>>2527477Nope, you're stuck with it. See above, >>2527454 You roll for the type but I roll for the attributes. In fact I actually might scrap using the system I was going to use all together, keeping it on a narrative level. We'll see I suppose, like I said this is my first quest but I can already see the d20 system really mucking it up.
>>2527482I vote yes then it won't hurt us
>>2527483>>2527486>>2527462Three to one, do me a favor and roll while I finish up this chapter here. dice+1d20 in the options field! Best of Three and only a nat 20 will get you crazy powers.

>>2527495What can you do? It's Dice God's whims. I was hoping to get it later but eh.
If this is isekai shouldn't we have some advantage?
>>2527496For devil fruit powers will you be taking a known fruit away from someone?
>>2527500Prolly some knowledge about enemy tech and strength. We didn't choose to go full weeb
>>2527500Yeah, you're college educated for one and have earth physiology from the far off future. Trust me it's fine, besides what people lack in brawn they make up for in brains! But this is 4chan so we'll probably be lacking in both.>>2527501Nope! All fruits will stay with their cannon owners unless some unforeseen death happens while questing. In which case the fruit is free game.
You admit you had to do a bit of research on One Piece. How it started, the inspiration it takes from actual pirate lore (which is to say not much), and the sheer huge impact it’s had on people. Millions of copies sold, translated in over 10 languages. It’s honestly a wonder you hadn’t read a copy or even seen an english dubbing. In all your time you’ve only ever seen the faces of the characters and heard the names. Monkey D. Luffy, Roronoa… Zolo you think his name was? What ever.You hit control S and save your work, lazily sending it to your professor. You swear to God if you ever get the chance you’re going to tear this asshole apart. You thought it was a joke about whole “check your privilege” thing made by a bunch of paranoid fringe asshole but nope. You come face to face with a living joke every Wednesday, dyed hair and all. Regardless you send the freaking paper and you’re done with it...Phew. Several thousand words later and it only cost you your personal hygiene. God you are tired. So tired.You heave your body up, the weight of your exhaustion taking its toll on your weary muscles. Christ you didn’t even leave your fucking dorm and you feel like you ran a fucking marathon. You shuffle towards your bed, intent on making the best out of the two hours of sleep you can get. You wrap the covers around your body and your eyes begin to flutter closed, head impacting the pillow in a soft thump. Pirates. Never again man. The instant your head hits the pillow do you fall asleep. You’re stuck now in the world of pitch black dreams. But you have to admit it doesn’t quite… ‘feel’ right. Your covers are gone but you still feel really warm as if bathed by the sun… your pillow also feels different. Hard like a rock but soft like a layer of… moss?You force your eyes open and immediately have to squint and bring your hand up to block your eyes from the sun raining down its blinding light. Wait a minute, the sun? (1/?)
You crunch up from your sleeping position and realize… you are most certainly not in your bed any more. For whatever reason there’s a ringing in your ears, loud and high pitched enough that you cringe at the pain. You try yawning which slightly pops your ears, and the ringing decreases in intensity. Christ it’s like you stood too close to a speaker. Now that the ringing has partially subsided you can get a bead on some semblance of sound and you hear… seagulls and… the ocean? You blink the sleep from your eyes and yawn again, getting an eye full of salty sea directly in front of you. It’s an amazing shade of turquoise blue, light refracting off the waves as they crest in the distance and wash up on shore. Sea shells line the beach and it’s only now you realize that you have sand in your pants. Fucking great.You stand up and jiggle your pant leg around, shaking grains out from your undergarments. You get a look around and see that the beach stretches on for a while to the east, and to the West there’s a small dock at the end of the beach with a two story building on what looks like a boardwalk! With people! Behind you is a bit of forest, but it’s lined with oaks. Something that tells you this isn’t a tropical island per se. Alright wait… you should check your pockets first. Inside your back pocket is your wallet, with 50 whole dollars in the form of two 20s and a 10. There’s also your Driver’s License! In your other pocket is... your phone! At 100% power! >What is your name and age? >Henry Avery>Daniel Finnigan>Mark Louis >Write ins encouraged>Which direction do you go?>East to the beach? >West to the small dock with a shack? >North through the forest?
>>2527522>Henry Avery>West to the small dock with a shack?Check your phone meanwhile, try to reach someone.
>>2527522 >Hugh Mungus >West to the small dock with a shack?
>>2527522>What is your name and age? Joe Johnson age 18>Which direction do you go?West to the small dock with a shackBetter ask them locals
>>2527528>>2527530>>2527531Alright West seems to be the consensus but as for a name... How about Hugh Avery? Or you could switch a vote to another. Like I said I am no good with names.
>>2527534i like for the name to be a pun, funny or weird to fit in this world
>>2527534>Hugh AveryI'll go with that, if still no consensus Joe Johnson
>>2527534i agree with this>>2527535 Anon. The name should be punJoe Johnson
>>2527534Joseph Jonathon Johnson, the third.
>>2527536Yeah sure, Joe Johnson works.
>>2527535>>2527538like Hamilton Endex(for that glorious Ham&Eggs; pun) or Hamilton andeg
Alright it seems Joe Johnson is the over all consensus yes?Right then, I also need an age but I suppose I could give that later so screw it, writing!
>>2527547are we going to have a weird laugh or are we going to have a weirdly normal laugh?
>>2527550Well seeing as how no one else seems to have a regular "haha" type of laugh, yeah, that weirdly normal laugh will be all yours.
>>2527550our last name could have been chesterher it sounds like chest hair
>>2527550We just smirk like Zoro. Cool guys just smirks
>>2527416>you type the letter ‘a’ till the minimum word count is hit, highlight them all and set not only their color but the highlight to white. Bam......holy shit
>>2527560wow thats the words of a wise dude man
Joseph Johnson. Your friends call you Joe, Joseph is way more formal you feel. You pull your phone out and what a surprise, you have no bars. Your weather app is useless though to be fair you don’t need an app to tell you it’s sunny outside, it just is. You put your ID back in your wallet and make the trek on over to the shack. It’s a comfortable looking place, even has an outdoor patio with a few patrons drinking outside. You enter through the two swinging doors and the numerous people all seem to ignore you, preferring to keep to their drinks.You make your way to the bar and get up to a stool, sitting down. The bartender approaches you and… you can’t understand a word he’s saying. “こんにちは、何を飲みたいですか?”Thank Christ for context clues, he seems to be asking a question, and this is a bar so... he must be asking what you want to drink. You’ve ignored it thus far but you’re actually quite parched. The only issue here is if you can’t understand him then he can’t understand you.... Damn.>Simply make the universal sign for drinking, bringing your thumb up to your face and bringing it back>Try and communicate with him in English>Fuck it just don’t say anything and wait for him to leavesorry that took so long I had to do a bunch of chores.
>>2527587>>Try and communicate with him in English>>Simply make the universal sign for drinking, bringing your thumb up to your face and bringing it backLets just do both
>>2527587>>2527590Why not.Support.Let's go for a 'deaf' character
>>2527596could be interesting and being a fake deaf person thats possibly illiterate could be interesting
>>2527590>>2527593>>2527596Doing both wins out by one.>>2527596>>2527599You'll get your chances to be all dark and mysterious, no worries.
You decide to take a chance and bring your hand close to your mouth in a drinking motion, accompanied by a sipping noise.“Drink, please.”“えええええ? ‘Durinku’ とは何ですか? あなたは飲み物ですか?” You looks bewildered by the fact you just spoke English, his expression crossed with confusion. You similarly having no clue what he said simply nod your head in affirmation to his statement. He simply cocks and eyebrow and snags a bottle from the ranks behind him, pouring a glass. He slides it to you and you catch it. Well atleast that hasn’t changed. You raise your glass slightly to the man who you can hear mumbling, no doubt about you as he goes back to cleaning glasses and serving the other patrons. Taking a swig from the glass you realize this booze is either watered down or especially weak. Alright well the booze might be watered down, but fuck it it’s no concern of yours. Taking another swig you start to think about where the hell this place is. They seem to be speaking Japanese but that just brings up more questions. Like, how the hell did you end up in Japan on the other side of the world? Hell, how the fu-CRASHA sudden crash startles you from your thoughts by a sudden and loud crashing noise from behind, take a look you actually see a man has just kicked the double doors off their hinges and they landed not a few feet from you. You crane your neck behind you and you see a man in a shirt and jacket combo with a huge sword strapped to his back. He’s sporting one of the biggest shit eating grins you’ve ever seen, and it only gets bigger as he makes his way to the bar, backed by five others in stupid garb, each one weirder than the last. Who the hell wears a bandana on their arm in Japan? For that matter, who the hell carries a friggin SWORD?!“ねえ、老人、あなたに最高のエールを与えて、それを速くしてください!”He barks at the bartender, who’s shaking from behind his bar. Well shit, he's a few inches away form you, and the poor bastard is practically begging you with his eyes.>Fuck it, interfere. Punch this SOB.>Turn to him and talk, maybe HE speaks a bit of English>Do nothing, it's not your problem.
>>2527683>>Fuck it, interfere. Punch this SOB in his cock and steal the sword
>>2527683>Fuck it, interfere. Punch this SOB.Bartender already gave you a drink and maybe for free if we help him
>>2527689This. Sounds fun. Also this guy is obviously a second hand character lets go.
>>2527683>>Fuck it, interfere. Punch this SOB.
>>2527689>>2527719>>2527721>>2527724Damn you guys are violent. Writing!
>>2527735Well we are not drunk

Rolled 7 (1d20)>>2527788Watch me
Rolled 6 (1d20)>>2527774I gotta agree, it's got a cool start so far, the language barrier and the fact MC isn't a big weeb that actually knows all that much about the setting beyond a few key points and characters is a neat change. Plus no OP powers from the start, I like power gain, I just prefer that they don't immediately make the MC a walking god.>>2527788

>>2527790>>2527791>>2527794Wew, just barely made it! I'll be rolling retaliation secretly soon but for now, continuing to write.
Darn, this one will take a bit longer, gotta go take out the trash.Be right back, till then, I actually have a little game for you guys to play. This character isn't just some faceless mook. He's a younger version of somebody important in a future arc! Can you guess who? Hard mode, no reverse google searching.
>>2527831Ha, joke's on you, I barely got past the cloud Islands arc and don't remember shit!
>>2527831Is it one of Whitebeard's commanders? The one who got tricked by Akainu?
>>2527831That grin could be like that Jumping Hyena or something
>>2527831Well, Zoro wears a Bandanna on his arm, if memory serves, but I don’t remember him rolling around with five people, unless the rest of the crew is with him or something. And he uses multiple katanas. Probably not Mihawk either. I only ever got through the first 50 chapters or so, so I’m not exactly an authority on One Piece.
Man, you don’t want to do this. You’ve only ever been in three whole fight in your life! But the poor bartender is clearly terrified of both the dude with the huge sword and his goons, and he has his foot up on the bar, and you’re fairly certain you could take him. Oh what the hell. “Hey asshole,” You stand up and ball your hand into a fist, turning your hips and cocking your arm into what you hope is going to be a good uppercut to his chin. From what you remember in all those street fight videos on World Star it always come down to one lucky punch.“え? あなたは何を望んでいますか? あなたは死にたいですか!?” The five others behind him laugh at his comment. Jokes on him you haven’t got the slightest goddamn clue what he’s saying. It’s at this point that you catch him in your gaze, eyes marking their target, his stupid looking pinkette chin. Well fuck he just keeps coming up with reasons for people to hate him.His eyes go wide with sudden realization at what you’re about to do. Quickly he goes for the handle on the sword strapped to his back but he’s too late. You practically JUMP up with force, your fist flying to the bottom of his chin and SMASHING right into his button. You actually feel him lift slightly off the ground as he goes sailing backwards, arms tensed only half a second ago going limp as you swear you see a splat of blood coming from his mouth! Holy shit just how hard did you hit him!? The six men behind him as well as many of the bar patrons let loose many exclamations, both at the mans sudden unconsciousness and your violent treatment of his chin. Finally, he SLAMS into a table, forcing the innocent bystanders out from their place of drink and into the corners of the bar. “副艇長!!”Fuku-what? Aw shit you hope you didn’t hit the mayor or something. “この野郎!” The six men draw various weapons from sheaths and holsters, two guns and four swords! HOLY SHIT THEY MUST BE YAKUZA!! One of the men charges at you screaming, sword raised up high! HOLY SHIT YOU PUNCHED A YAKUZA BOSS!! >Dodge to the side quickly! Hope the others miss their shots!>Punch HIM in the face too! >Quickly jump onto the other side of the bar! Find a weapon!>WRITE IN!!Sorry that took so long guys I stopped to break for dinner
>>2528061Would unsheathing the sword off the guy we just knocked the fuck out and attacking be feasable or would we likely just get shot up as we try to grab it?
>>2528074Nah, sword's on his back and he landed on his back, plus he's in a corner, not giving you enough space to draw the damn thing. I mean have you seen it? >>2527683It's the size of his body, it's huge!
>>2528061Now, the reasonable thing to do would be to run the fuck away. But the entrance is blocked by those bastards. So, we either jump out of the window or we charge straight into the guy going for us, knock him down and some of the fuckers behind him and leg for the exit. Also, could you describe the tavern a bit QM?
>>2528087Sure,It's a typical space, 30x30 meters (though don't quote me on that my spacial recognition is trash), tables strewn about on the left and right sides, letting a sort of hallway form to the bar. The bar starts at the right side going length wise connected to the wall, behind it are numerous bottles of ale, wine, whiskey, rum etc. etc. On the left side is a stairway leading up to the second level of the building. There are three spaced windows on both the left and right sides though they do not open so you COULD crash into them (Forgot to include those in the visual aid)Green= Tables and Bar and Stairway Red= EnemiesBlue= K.O'd
>>2528118Maybe we should take the K.O'd guy hostage. Break a bottle, keep it near his throat and then slowly move to the entrance while keeping distance from his goons. What do the other anons think?
>>2528061>>Find a weapon, bash HIM in the face too!We're in a bar fight against superior numbers in a shonen series. There's only one reasonable solution. We need to take the bar, and hit them with it.Starting with a chair, and followed by any bit of furniture or miscellaneous throwable glassware daft enough to get in arms reach.
>>2528118Whats our current anime power level?Are we mook tier or slightly important character tier?If mook do>>2528138If not kick their asses and ask the bartender for another drink
>>2528171I support this. We might not have crazy superpowers, but we could be that crazy Jackie Chan-tier fighter.>"I don' wan' no trabble!"
>>2528175Somewhere in between, like spin-off/filler/non-cannon movie levels. You won't die if you fail the rolls but it would still hurt like a bitch.>>2528171>>2528138Alright so finding a weapon seems to be a priority, but whether to fight or flee seems to be a major concern too. I'll wait say another 10 minutes for a consensus!
>>2528191Fight fight and fight some more. At least in appearance, we should probably maneuver toward windows or doors as we fight.
>>2528193Ah, fuck it. Let smash some cunts.
>>2528061>>Punch HIM in the face too!Yell worldstar while doing it
>>2528061So what, have we got magical super strength now? We've taken a look at ourselves, right? We look like we normally do? Anyways, we should probably fight back, a doubt they're just gonna let us go if we make a break for it.>Grab any bottle that's available and smash the guy coming at usI feel like destroying the bar kind of defeats the purpose of interfering. A bottle should do, we get a good bludgeon in and then something nice and sharp after.
>>2528234>>2528236>>2528191>>2528171>>2528175>>2528138>>2528249>>2528250Alright, you've agreed to grab the nearest bottle and smash this cunt in the face! Do me a favor, roll to beat a hidden DC, 1d20 best of three!

You start to panic. Your knees are locked in place and strong, arms spastic, shit’s going wrong! In a fit you try and snag a bottle on the counter, only to remember you had a glass instead! You bring it up quickly not recognizing your mistake, and the sword, clashes with the glass, instantly smashing it in your hand leaving nothing but broken shards and a sharp blade slightly embedded into your palm. “AARRGH!!” You scream out in pain, your nerves on fire as the blade forces the glass further into your hand, the wielder of said blade actually startled at the last minute, trying to wrench his blade from your pain-induced vice grip. The others waste no time, the pistoleers trying to get a good angle from which to take you down, while two more swords-men move in, one looking to imitate the son of a bitch STILL TRYING TO TAKE HIS SWORD BACK AND CUTTING DEEPER INTO YOUR HAND FUCK!!>Punch the bastard in the face and steal his sword! Block one and dodge the other! >Kick him away and roll backwards behind the bar, getting cover from all angles!>Let go of the blade and shove your glass hand in his face, taking him down with you! You’ll be vulnerable but HE will be BLIND!>Write in!

>>2528537Wait, no, that’s not terrible. Was thinking we were rolling d100s for some reason.
Shit shit shit shit shit SHITYou never figured you’d make it this far, but goddamn it you’ve got to keep going! The two swordsmen are closing in, boxing you in and leaving you with only one option, advance or retreat! You tense your legs and hop, throwing your entire weight backwards so you fall behind the bar! The swordsmen take their swings, only to end up having their blades strike the wood and embed themselves in the bar! “速い!”You’ve no idea what that means but you’ll take it as a complement. The bastard who tried to stab you actually thrust his sword forward so hard that he pierced through to this side of the bar. Here you actually see several things that would greatly aid you in your fi-“ああああああああ!! あなたはここで何をしているの?! これは私の隠れスポットです!”Oh get a cheek full of terrified and sweaty palms from the bartender you you kind of didn’t notice till now. He’s been behind the bar the whole time, scared just as stiff as you were! What an asshole! He’s the reason you’re even fighting in the first place! How dare he try to shove you off! “Listen asshole, I’m trying to save your ass! THE LEAST YOU COULD DO IS SHOW APRECIATION!!” “いいえ、私を傷つけないでください, ごめんなさい!!”Fuck it, you’ll deal with this later! For now though, you’ve found so very useful things! In order of usefulness, a knife, a hammer, a box of matches, some 100% proof alcohol, some bandages and a unloaded flintlock pistol! Your situational awareness is off the charts! Goddamn you feel like MacGyver here!>Take the alcohol and splash the sons of bitches, then light ‘em up!>Take the knife, stab the bastards when you come up!>Take the hammer and bend the sword sticking through the bar, disarming one of your enemies permanently! >Take the gun and fire off on the nearest asshole! >Write-in!
>AlcoholI love this kind of shit. Following.
>>2528821>Take the alcohol and splash the sons of bitches, then light ‘em up!Demoralize these sons of bitches. Also, have some bar fight musichttps://youtu.be/PN7EkJv98PQ
>>2528821>>Take the hammer and bend the sword sticking through the bar, disarming one of your enemies permanently!Again, as much of an ass as the bartender's being, burning down the bar would kind of defeat the point of attacking these guys.
>>2528821>Take the hammer and bend the sword sticking through the bar, disarming one of your enemies permanently! >Take the gun and fire off on the nearest asshole! In this order.
>>2528840Ah, fuck, you're right. Well, I'll gues I'll change to the hammer.
>>2528821Been in this world all of 30 minutes. I say we burn it the hell down.
>>2528840>>2528851Damn, just read this bloke's logic. I also change to hammer.
>>2528821>Take the hammer and bend the sword sticking through the bar, disarming one of your enemies permanently! Also look for a sickle somewhere
>>2528865>We bring Communism to the world of One PieceI like it.
>>2528821>>Take the hammer and bend the sword sticking through the bar, disarming one of your enemies permanently!Alcohol tempts me. The prospect of firebombing these guys REALLY tempts me.But >>2528840 makes a good point.

You snag the hammer from under the bar and swing it with all your might at the blade, bending the sword at such an angle that the wielder will never manage to pull it out in time. Awesome, that’s one less fuck-ass trying to stab you! Next, what next, your adrenaline is overflowing from the fight, and the pain in your hand is barely noticeable at this point. That being said, you only have the one good hand left, so you use it to nab the gun under the counter. With a quick peek, you check to see if it’s loaded, tipping it downwards actually reveals no bullet, but fuck it at this point you’ll take your chances! You spring up from behind the bar gun in hand and aim it at the closest swordsman, trying to hop over himself. You take aim at his face, pull the trigger an-POOM!!JESUS H. FUCK!! The instant you pull the trigger is the instant the barrel of the fricken gun explodes, shattering it into numerous pieces, granted it took down the person you were aiming at, sparks flying into his eyes, but now BOTH your hands are seriously injured by both blade and gun alike! To make matters worse, the sparks from the explosion hit some of the booze that spilt from your glass, lighting both the bar and the floorboards on fire! >Fuck this, cut your losses and make a run for the door! >Screw it, jump on the bar, run for it and jump through the window!>Run upstairs and try to find a way out! >Write-in!
>>2529070>no goddamn neigh sayers are going to stop us!>neigh sayersFuckin horses, man. No class.
>>2529101>>Screw it, jump on the bar, run for it and jump through the window!I need to get some sleep, so I'll leave dreaming of tactical autodefenestration. Night all.
>>2529101Well, so much for not burning the bar down. Curse whatever shitty gunsmith made that piece of crap, and>Make a run for the door!Not really any reason to stick around now.

>>2529070>So why are you even hereBecause I saw One Piece, and One Piece quests are rare. The only one that's lasted is Ascendant Dawn, and reading thatis as carcinogenic as pouring polonium pellets down your urethra. >Good isekaiSure, but none of them are quests. You seem like a decent enough writer so far, why isekai?>>2529101>Screw it, jump on the bar, run for it and jump through the window!

>>2529182We're getting out of this one laddeh.
>>2529174>>2529177>>2529179Well done! 19! >>2529170 I don't really know why Isekai specifically. I suppose cause it'd cause enough shitposters to come around and maybe even stick around cause the genre is handled so badly. You can't just kick start the industrial revolution cause you have passing knowledge of electicity, it don't work that way. Fuck power fantasies nigger, earn it.Writing!
FUCK THIS!!You’re running on instinct at this point and you’ve fucking had it with this fucking stupid bar in the middle of Jap fucking NOWHERE!! You leap up from your position, using your leg you hoist upward and sail past the swordsmen who can only look up at your flying form. You might as well give these bastards a parting gift! With all the coordination your hyped up brain can muster you kick down with one foot, slamming into the face of your would be slasher! That’s the one! You kick off his nose, leaving your boot print on his face, and again with the other foot you repeat the action, his grip loosening on his weapon as your whole body weight presses down on his forehead! With all the grace that a seriously injured man can manage, you roll off your fallen adversary and into a table, and a sudden jolt of pain alerts you to your now sprained ankle! Thankfully, your assailants are more concerned with the fire, spreading through out the mainly wooden structure, threatening their boss! HOLY FUCKING SHIT YOU CAN’T BELIEVE THAT WORKED!! YOU ARE SO TRYING THAT AGAIN WHEN YOU GET THE CHANCE!! You make your way down whatever road you find, quickly finding cobblestone under your feet, oh thank fuck a road! A paved road! That must mean there’s someone who can help you! “HELP! PLEASE! I’M BLEEDING, I’VE BEEN SHOT!” You scream out, and sure enough you see some lights turn on in the windows of houses you hadn’t seen, candles if you had to guess from the flickering! With what little light you have you find yourself in a town, and infront of you seems to be a patio with pallets of rice and other goods, a general store of some kind! Oh thank God! You quickly scramble onto the patio and shoulder charge the door, though you’re severely weakened, and the charge does little to budge the door. The glass in your palms hurts so much, you can’t even feel your left hand anymore, you’re tired… You just want... to go… home.Darkness takes you.

>>2529366Damn right it is.>>2529369See >>2528193Alright so I'll be honest, it's 1:17 am here and I'm exhausted. So I'll tell you what, I'll stop here, and come back tomorrow. Okay? Alright. Till then!
>>2529385See ya QM
>>2529385Good night QM. Hope this quest lasts.
>>2529385Thanks for running
>>2529201>earn it.We can earn it without being le dank iseaki maymay man. Like Koby.
>>2529510True enough, though I feel I already made my point clear on how I feel about "le dank iseaki maymay" men. This'll be the best goddamn Isekai you've ever read my friend, YOU'VE GOT MY WORD ON THAT! LOUIS CAROL AMD MARK TWAIN CAN SUCK MY DICK!ALSO, to those still here and newly reading, I'd greatly appreciate it if you were to give me some pointers on my writings thus far. Do you like the pace, is my dialogue fitting, is the character likeable? What tweaks should I make to the rolling system if any, cause like I had said, I was planning on using a system more suited for physical table tops rather than this narrative setting. Anything at all helps so don't hesitate, alright?
>>2529550>This'll be the best goddamn Isekai you've ever read my friend, YOU'VE GOT MY WORD ON THAT! LOUIS CAROL AMD MARK TWAIN CAN SUCK MY DICK!>He didn't even mention the best isekai author
>>2529562?Kugane Maruyama? Tappei Nagatsuki? Yusagi Aneko?
>>2529582>He still can't get itLook at this dooood
>>2529550what's our character look like?
>>2529600Presumably a normal human and not some doofy fucker like One Piece characters normally look like. Which would have been more fun, too bad OP fell for the dank isekai meme.
>>2529600Was going to leave that for when I come back, after all, how better to look at yourself with nothing in the way?>>2529593You're right, I obviously don't. I listed the mangakas of Overlord, Re:Zero and the Adventures of the Shield Hero... what else is there, fucking Jin? That one three chapter thing where some Roman bath expert visits contemporary Japan and brings back ideas to Ancient Rome? TELL ME DAMN YOU!
>>2529625>All of this new shitLOOK AT THE TOP OF HIS HEAD
I feel as if we're going to do something like accidently burn down garps ship while shouting words in english that nobody understands
>>2529639Fucking, Fire Tripper? Rumiko Takahashi, is that what you wamt to hear? Cause Louis Carol is WAY older than anything she's produced.
>>2529689>Rumiko Takahashi, is that what you wamt to hear?Yes. But you went to new shit when you went into manga. Not for Fire Tripper though.
>>2529696Nigga fuck off, first doesn't mean best, regardless of what platform or medium. Besides, Inuyasha was Rumiko's best work, while Fire Tripper was forgotten.
>>2529716Fire Tripper wasn't even the one I was talking about, why did you even jump to Fire Tripper first?
>>2529720Cause what the fuck else by Rumiko is "Isekai"? Can't be One Pound Gospel, or Mermaid Saga since it's too recent (2003), and it sure as hell can't be anything involving Ramu/Lum, since she visits Earth rather than Ataru visiting her home planet, hence it cant be an isekai. Although, in my defense, I've never read Urusei Yatsura so I wouldnt know if Ataru ever visits Ramu's home planet, though even if he DID it would only be considered an arc rather than the premise of the manga! Thus eliminating it from consideration! Fire Tripper is her only Isekai work!
>>2529778It was InuYasha, damn, you've read a lot of her work though.
>>2529778Let me rephrase that, Mermaid Saga isn't suspect because it's 2003 and you kept whinging about the "New Shit", and the same thing applies to Mermaid saga, that it's a fish out of water story rather than a person in the pool.
>>2529782Oh. Right fuck I forgot Kogome is basically teleported to Sengoku Japan. Shit m8, my bad. Anyways, friends? If you havent read said new shit I highly reccomnd the shield hero. Shit takes you on a ride, purposefully stacks the deck against the protagonist early on in all things which is a great twist.
>>2529550Good stuff so far QM just read through this and have some hopes for the future. As for critiques it's a bit early to talk about stuff like pacing and all that. As for the roll system I suggest you upgrade to d100. I've seen multiple quests that started out with d20 but eventually changed d100 after crits ruined everything and it's better than just removing crits outright. And I personally think it's more fun and diverse.
>>2529813>Anyways, friendsOnly if we get a DF that lets us crush fools with rocks and nothing else.
>>2529813>Anyways, friends?Only if you give us a kungfu dugong as a crewmateJust kidding I love you for making an op quest and not the hundreth naruto quest
>>2529813S'all good.>>2530110Will agree with this guy though. If you're doing crits and Bo3s, I find d100s work better then d20s. Makes crits more impactful when they happen, whereas they're more annoyingly inconvenient then exciting with d20s.
>>2529323>Lights in the Windows Wasn't it daytime when we entered the bar?
Been looking to get into One Piece but that 900+ ep count is fucking terrifyingGood thread so far, OPWill definitely follow
>>2530383Yeah, read the manga. The anime is complete garbage. If you see TOEI's name on an anime, avoid it.
>>2530383Dude it's a great time to get back into it after 903 the hype is as big as ever and the Reverie and Wano arcs are coming up it's an amazing time to be a OP fan definitely read it if you have the time because fuck TOEI.
>>2531688Ryokugyu hype anon
Alright alright alright! I have returned! Thread will be up t-minus 2 or so hours, till then I'll adress some grievances. >>2530110>>2530247So I've been toying with the idea of going with a 1d100 narrative system, but the thing is I use opposing rolls to determine success. The reason you weren't stabbed is cause your opponents kept flubbing their rolls in tandem with yours, and sometimes managed to score higher. I understand the 1d20s can be a bit swingy, last session being a prime example, but I feel the 1d20 system keeps up more suspense, forcing you to pick your battles. But I'll tell you what, I'll put it to vote before we start, >Keep the d20 opposing roll system Which mind you you will get modifiers for eventually OR>Switch to d100 beat a DC.Same basic principle only instead of opposing rolls the DC is already set. >>2530255It WAS, but it's winter and you're in the north! Night time falls way faster as a result and you ran a pretty damn good distance.>>2530383Yeah what >>2530424 and >>2531688 said, read the Romance Dawn Arc, Syrup Village, and at least get to Arlong Park, that's where I feel is a damn good starting point if you've never read the series.Till then me hearties! Stay hyped!
>>2531906How about 3d10?
>>2531906I like the D20sIt reminds us that the Dice Gods are cheeky fuckers for everyone involved, be it NPCs or player characters>>2530424>>2531688Thanks for the recommendationWill be nice to read on the way to work
>>2531906I'll take the d20 even tho I feel like it's gonna fuck us up.
>>2531906Keep the d20. Opposing rolls can get screwy, but it feels like it fits the setting.
>>2531906D100. I doubt it's gonna win at this point but I perfer DC's so that we don't encounter Kaido and he keeps getting low rolls so he seems really shitty
>>2531906d100 beat the DC is better. Also there's a lower chance of crits if you want to keep them.
>>2531906Could we do d20s for the mooks and d100s with set DCs for bosses? Would this be a weird system?
>>2531906D20I feel like d100 is too easy in most quests
>>2532152>>2532139>>2532067>>2532139>>2532407>>2532021>>2532031>>2532049>>2532107>>2532250Damn son, either I'm reading this wrong or it's a tie! I'll tell you guys what, how about this system;A kind of Dice Pool, where in the number of dice and the value of your dice changes, to beat an opponents hidden DC? Like for example, YOU have 1d20, as you're a strapping young lad with a hint of musculature, but since you're just starting our you suck, this is common though so no worries.The Mooks you faced at the bar WOULD have had 1d13 each, while their boss with the big knife hosted a 1d20 much like you. The number of dice and their value are determined by a number of things, including but not limited to physical health, martial training, past experiences and more. For example, Monkey D. Luffy, who's had a Devil Fruit for the better half of his life and is freakishly strong, would have a 2 or 3d20 in Enies Lobby, with extra modifiers granted for the likes of Second and Third Gear.So if he had rolled a 20+10=30 vs Rob Lucci's 10+15=25, he would beat him out by 5, which is barely a success.Does that work for everyone or do you prefer I stick to 1d20s/change to d100s? Cause I think the d20/d100 is best for storytelling while my above system is just compromise. Hell I might just go with the 1d100.Post up soon, writing now!
>>2532452I like the idea of a dice pool, better than a d20 at the very least.
>>2532452I'm not even gonna think about the possible flaws of this system it sounds cool and most importantly unique. So I'm 100% behind it
>>2532452Wouldn’t have a problem with that. Only concerns I’d have is that we’d be making you do a bunch of extra legwork, since you’d have to figure out stats for every enemy we fight, and how stuff like Logia fruit users, which you can’t really harm outside of special circumstances, would work.
>>2532452Joining in! Looks great so far!We need to learn sign language, or more importantly, get healed.One question QM, do we know what we studied or can we choose? In Isekai, Earth knowledge is usually important.Dice pool sounds cool, ignore reddit spacing.
>>2532452I like it!
Blackness once more.Longer this time. No warmth just comfort. You don’t want to move. You’re floating through an infinite space. Constant and deafening silence reign.You hear birds… the smooth tweet of birdsong rather than the harsh squaking of seagulls as you had before. Your eyes flutter open and you’re made instantly aware that this is not your bed. You sit up and covers fall from your chest, your hands wrapped in bandages… either Leonardo DiCaprio wants to go deeper in your head or you have to come to grips with the fact this is… isn’t a dream. But wait then that means…You throw the covers off you completely, your left ankle also bandaged to heal your sprain. Shit. Groggily and groaning you bring your feet to the floor, now made aware of the fact that you’re nude save for your underwear, thank god. Right in front of you is a window, sunlight streaming through. You limp up to the glass and look out side, seeing that you’re on the second level of the general store you found last night. Turning you see your clothes.>A shirt and pants combo, semi-casual and pressed. You may not have been the most organized but you were certainly clever and immaculate (+5 to mental tasks, deductive reasoning, intelligence and the like)>Your workout gear.

Oh, thankfully your clothes are still here. Now that you think about it the entire bar was a bit ruffle and tumble, even by your standards. Shit you didn’t figure this Japanese island would have some psychopaths mugging bartenders and fucking shooting at you! You shuffle over to the drawer with your clothes atop them, and you notice your goddamn wallet is missing, and so is your phone. Shit. Whoever took you in must have nabbed it when they were treating you. You notice your pants actually have a slight tear at the very bottom of the leg. Aw well you suppose you could roll up the leg and hide it. Actually you seem to be in an… awkward position. Putting on your pants and easy enough, zipping them too but the buttons on both your pants and shirt… well, they don’t exactly lend themselves to being handled by your bandaged mitts. You try to button your pants but you just get the fibers in the bandages stuck, tearing slightly. Screw it, you simply toss your shirt on and leave the zipper as your only hold to your waist. You make your way to the door of your room and see a hallway, leading down stairs. There’s a pleasant smell wafting upwards.You carefully tiptoe down the stairs and find that there’s a whole kitchen, with a table and four chairs at the center. In the corner is a woman over a stove, cooking what you assume to be bacon and eggs. There’s a man sat at the table reading a newspaper and… a child. A little girl with green hair of all things staring right at you. The fourth seat is next to the distracted man, hosting a plate of toast, eggs, bacon and sausage and your stomach grumbles slightly. >Make a shush symbol at the child, and try to sneak breakfast in and leave, hoping she doesn’t rat you out, you don’t want to disturb their breakfast.>Cough to announce your presence don’t be rude. >Head back upstairs and hope nothing goes awry.
>>2532975>>Cough to announce your presence don’t be rude.
>>2532975>Cough to announce your presence don’t be rude. Lads, I have an important question for you.Pirate or Marine
>>2532676>heroic deeds!I dont want to share my meat>>2532975>Cough to announce your presence don’t be rude.
>>2532975>Cough to announce your presence don’t be rude.
>>2532990>MarineNah. We should go pirate and get ourselves a fleet. I don't want to end up working for Akainu
>>2532990Pirate, any other choice is for fags
>>2532990I'm fine with either or. The Marine option would be neat and new considering we mostly see the pirate pov but pirate shenanigans, although generic gives us more freedom and would have fun. I'm leaning more toward pirate but I wouldn't drop the quest if we became a marine

>>2533013>I don't want to end up working for AkainuWhat are you, some kind of faggot?
You clear your throat with a quick cough, and the man and woman turn their attention to you. The man is the first to speak.“ああ, 私たちのゲストは目が覚めています。 どうぞ、来て食べてください.”He motions for you to take a seat, and you make your way down the stairs while the woman finishes cooking, putting a full plate before the child. You clumsily pull out the chair with your glove shaped hand and sit yourself down, pulling in. You realise now that utensils are going to also be an issue.“あなたの包帯を脱いでもいい?"Goddamn language barriers. You give him a quizzical look and he points to your hand, doing a counter clockwise winding motion. Oh he want to take off your bandages! You nod and he does exactly that, exposing…Oh.Oh yeah that hurts. The hand where the gun had exploded looks mangled, you’re surprised it wasn’t actually blown off completely. You’ve seen one too many people hold firecrackers for too long. Gripping slightly crinkles the skin and stings slightly but on your other hand…
On your other hand is just sme oddly shaped scar tissue. Honestly you expected something worse but hell, you’re not complaining. “ あああ!”The sudden yelp startles you, though you notice it’s coming from the little girl, who’se pointing at your less messed up hand.“彼は手にタトゥーを持っています!彼は海賊です!”“Chihiro! 失礼にしないでください! 彼は単純に奴隷の下にいる男の人たちによって単純に切断されました.”The mother scolds the child for the sudden outburst, though you’ve no idea what either of them said. You, really need some Japanese lessons. Oh, wait! You understood that! Chihiro! That must be her name! The man addresses you again after having thrown away the bandages.“いいえ、Chihiroは正しいかもしれません。 若い男、私は尋ねなければならない。 あなたは海賊ですか?”You’ve no idea what he’s talking about but that’s the third time in this house they’e said that word. Kaizoku. By their reactions you can only assume that means something bad like a thief. Oh God, they might throw you out! But… then again…>Nod your head! You’re definitely a Kaizo… whatever the hell it was!>Shake your head no, you don’t want these people throwing you out!>Pretend to be deaf! Point to your ears and make all sorts of motions pretending you don’t hear them.
>>2533221>Make it clear that you speak another language, and have no clue what they’re talking about.
>>2533221IMPORTANT NOTE!! This choice won't preclude you from either Pirate or Marine path, so no pressure if you worry about that.It will also be my last post cause it's 12pm here and I've been gardening all day again and am seriously tired, and unfotuanetly have an engagement Sunday. I'll try to run this on a weekly basis though promise nothing...
>>2533221>Make it clear that you speak another language, and have no clue what they’re talking about.Ting tong, ping pong

Ah. A touch of I Can't Understand What My Isekai is Saying. Nice, QM.
>>2529813>highly reccomnd the shield hero.Shield Hero is decent up until half way, when the author starts wanking his death fetish and everyone is retarded aside from the shield hero.
>>2539474But wasn't that explained as the summoning candidates being chosen as retards so they wouldn't put up a fight against the evil goddess?
>>2539498Yeah, but the evil goddess was used to explain everything. Even the ending, until the readers got so pissed at the cop-out and it got changed, if I remember right.

We're talking to these people in a language they obviously don't understand, hoping beyond hope they'll understand! >>2540212Thanks my dude, but nah I don't not yetlittle known fact, the more pirate shitposting and "rip jolly" posts there are, the stronger I get. Go fucking hog wild.
>>2541186I only posted rip jolly cause I really like the quest and didn't want it to die ;-;
>>2541252I don't wanna leave you guys either! Stay tuned, writing currently.
I know next to nothing about One Piece, but I am interested and have some ideas/plans that could be worth exploring in the future.1. Joseph Johnson, I wonder what are the odds of us ending up with JoJo as our nickname2. Become the most hardcore pirate around3. If the second point fails, make do like were in a Bud Spencer and Terrence Hill movie
Alright. Trying to overcome a language barrier here. Let’s see if you can’t make some kinda progress.“Thank you for your hospitality, but I must say, I do not speak Japanese…”With your best impression of sign language, you try to convey that you in fact don’t speak a word of Japanese, not a single character. Something you kinda need to fix if you’re to find the fastest way off this rock. You wave to your mouth, making a speaking motion with your hand and then an X with your arms. You hope they got that… the silence is not a good sign though.“まあ、それは私たちのゲストがかなり彼の頭を打つようだ!” The old man gets out a laugh while the wife chuckles. The girl just seems dissatisfied, and slinks back into her chair. “どうぞ召し上がってください!" He gestures to your dish, making eating motions. Well shit, who’re you to deny meals. Oddly enough to use forks and knives, something you thought would be exclusive to you seeing as you’re the only white person around. We’ll screw it, you’re not about to question it.Halfway into the meal a sudden thought strikes you! Your wallet! “Mmmm!” you grunt through a mouthful of egg and sausage, swallowing before turning to the man,“Wallet! Where is? Wallet?” You make the gestures with your hands, flipping them open and closed in what you hope is a familiar fasion.“Wallet? ああ、あなたはこれを意味する必要があります! この奇妙な石と一緒にパンツで見つけました.”He hands you both your wallet and your phone, Both of which seem unharmed! Oh thank god. You check the phone… DAMN IT! Only 8 percent?! Who the hell figured out your password?! Then again… that girls shifty eyes might explain a few things…>Use the translation app, tell them you’re very grateful for everything they’ve done for you, then leave.>Use the app, tell them you’re thankful and ask if you could do anything to repay them, even if it might cost you a few minutes of power…>Simply bow your head and leave, ask someone if there’s a port near by and if you can hitch a ride!
>Use the app, tell them you’re thankful and ask if you could do anything to repay them, even if it might cost you a few minutes of power…
>>2541390>>Use the app, tell them you’re thankful and ask if you could do anything to repay them, even if it might cost you a few minutes of power…
>>2541390>Tell them we're thankful and that this is the only way to communicate.>Also ask if theres a place where you can buy a charger or if you can borrow one
>>2541390>Simply bow your head and leave, ask someone if there’s a port near by and if you can hitch a ride!We needed rosetta stone but now that options goneNow we need a moon rune starters guide
>>2541390>use app to ask if you can repay them
>>2541430I mean if we find a charger like I suggested in >>2541427 we could rely on our phone a bit more. The girl seem to know what they are at least. Not a permanent fix but better than just trying to learn the japanese language from scratch without anyway to communicate until then
>>2541413>>2541421>>2541427>>2541445Repaying kindness seems to be the winner! Writing!
>>2541390>Use the app, tell them you’re thankful and ask if you could do anything to repay them, even if it might cost you a few minutes of power…
>>2541465Do they have phones and charger outlets that'd be compatible with what we have? I was always a little spotty on what tech level the OP world was at. Because I mean on the one hand, pirate ships, but on the other hand, cyborg people.>>2541390>Use the app, tell them you’re thankful and ask if you could do anything to repay them, even if it might cost you a few minutes of power…May as well, we're not going to get a tonne of use out of our phone at the charge it's at anyways.
>>2541513Nah m8. Most technology is derivative from geography, the whole reason we have steam power was cause some mother fucker figured out copper and coal cause he had them on hand. In all my reading and watching of OP I've not seen a single fucking thing that uses copper in its mechanism. THESE NIGGAS FIGURED OUT HUMAN FUCKING AUGMENTATION BUT CAN BARELY FIGURE OUT FUCKING RADIO WAVES, WHAT EVEN IS THE SCIENCE BEHIND DEN-DEN MUSHI?
>>2541542>WHAT EVEN IS THE SCIENCE BEHIND DEN-DEN MUSHI?They're telepathic snails. Or their mucus lets them communicate with one another.
>>2541542Oh well, guess we're gonna have to science or something if we want our phone back. Damn curious children. And damn our stupid ass for picking what was probably an easy password.
>>2541560Or we knock out Enel and eat him like Big Mom did to Caramel.
Quickly you tap in your password and as quick as you can make your way to the translator app. You hit the speech app, open the recording and quickly speak.“Thank you very much for everything you have done for me! You have saved my life. Is there anything I could do to repay you?”You tap once more and hit play, relaying the message in Japanese this time! The entire family reeling back in surprise! What, had they never seen text to speech? The girl in particular seems to be particularly scared.“魔女! 彼は魔女だ! 海賊の魔女!”You actually managed to nab what she had said and the message translated back to you perfectly. ‘Witch! He’s a Witch! A Pirate Witch!” Holy shit, that’s what Kaizoku meant?! Pirate?! Why the hell would she assume you’re a pirate!? “No no no! I’m not a pirate! I’m just a normal person!” “Then why are you using your magic game rock to speak to us?” “Aha! So it WAS you!”“Chihiro!”The conversation is brought to a sudden halt by the old man, who scolds his daughter. She winces at his outburst, and sits back down in her seat, eyes down cast as she simply returns to sitting there. The mother is having an equally hard time processing this… the father looks at you with a cold and solemn expression. Almost as if judging you and the danger you might pose to his family. After all for all he knows you’re some ruffian he picked up off the street, bloodied and beaten. He has every right to be suspicious of you.“I’ll be honest young man… I don't know who you are… but when we found you on our doorstep and my wife helped treat your wounds… you kept mumbling on and on about Pirates…”The disdain in his voice is palpable at the mention of the word “Kaizoku”... you can only guess why though… you have a few hunches.“And I couldn’t help but notice… you didn’t answer my question when I had asked, and if you did I could not understand… so I will ask you again. Are. you. A. Pirate?”… you swallow a lump in your throat.>Answer yes! You are a pirate that is to be feared! The reasons for your wounds were from a fight! You’re definitely a Pirate! The worst on the high seas! >... Nah. You’re no pirate. Hell you barely passed track and field tryouts and couldn't get into drama because of stage fright. You don’t have the guts to be a buccaneer.>Tell the truth of what happened at the bar, and... that you're a pirate historian? It's not technically a lie.>Write in?
>>2541563Plan "Vore Enel" is officially initiated
>>2541619>>2541563Don't y'all mean our lord and savior Eminem?
>>2541615>Tell the truth of what happened at the bar, and... that you're a pirate historian? It's not technically a lie.
>>2541615Wait, wouldn't we be muttering pirates in engrish? How would they have understood? That aside, >... Nah. You’re no pirate. Hell you barely passed track and field tryouts and couldn't get into drama because of stage fright. You don’t have the guts to be a buccaneer.>Tell the truth of what happened at the bar.
>>2541634Yeah I was also thinking this. It's probably just a plot hole
>>2541642>>2541634N-no it's not! I'm a good writer! Sh-shut up!
>>2541615>>... Nah. You’re no pirate. Hell you barely passed track and field tryouts and couldn't get into drama because of stage fright. You don’t have the guts to be a buccaneer.>>Tell the truth of what happened at the bar
>>2541624Tbh I've never been a fan of Enel. >Tell the truth of what happened at the bar, and... that you're a pirate historian? It's not technically a lie.Historians are pretty cool in OP when they aren't studying the Void Century.
>Tell the truth of what happened at the bar, and... that you're a pirate historian? It's not technically a lie.I hate mobileposting.
>>2541723Pudding is qt af I hope we can become a Shichibukai and bag a Charlotte.
>>2541628>>2541633>>2541634>>2541672>>2541674Telling the truth it is! >>2541715I know that feeling
>>2541674How could you not our one true god>>2541743No thank you. Haven't you ever been told not to stick your dick in crazies
>>2541804>How could you not our one true godBecause he's a boring villain and his fans are cancer. >Haven't you ever been told not to stick your dick in craziesSome of them aren't that crazy.
>>2541815How is Enel boring he was like the most fun part of that arc. He had loads of personality and his childish mentality + God complex paired with his incredible strength always made me excited when he did something... plus he's Eminem and that's just hilarious
>>2541834>He had loads of personalityNot really, he's a bog-standard egotist with a god complex. It does make him look a lot better when the next villain is fucking Foxy.
>>2541834>he was like the most fun part of that arcThat arc was boring imo
Shit, your phone is down to 6 percent. Considering everything… well… you’ll need to explain quickly.“Short answer is no. No I’m not a pirate. My injuries you saw and healed were from a fight, though I fought to protect someone. We was being harassed by some jerk with a huge sword backed by his friends, so I punched him in the face and they ended up burning the place down as a result of the fight.”Alright, them starting the fire may only be a half truth but still. “Me? No, I’m no pirate, I’m hardly brave enough. I’m more a historian than anything else. I punched him because he was threatening someone, and consequences followed. I am no pirate.”You finish your statement, and the old man’s stern gaze hasn’t shifted one bit.This time the girl seems to have lifted her head from her sunken state, almost taking an interest in what you had to say. The man contemplates for a few more seconds, and almost gives an answer, but is interrupted! “Honey…” his wife says. He cocks his ear and listens.“I think you needed someone to watch the shop while you went to the docks and I went to the market? We had wanted Mr. Torishima but he was busy…”The old man hmmms for a moment, scratching his chin. “Fine then! So be it. Boy! I’ve figured out a means for which to repay me. You are to watch the shop while my wife and I are gone. You will also be settled with our daughter, Chihiro.”“But Da~d, I don’t wanna be stuck with the pirate witch! I can do all the chores by myself!”“Chihiro, he won’t be here just to help you around the shop. He’ll be protection. There’s been an uptick in Pirate activity and I couldn’t live with myself leaving you alone.”“But Da-”“That is final Chihiro!” She humphs again, this time hopping out of her seat, sticking her tongue out at you in a less than pleasant gesture. The old man sighs before standing up himself, gesturing you to follow him, which you promptly do.“Now then, I’m no stranger to pirates, even during my younger years they were a constant threat.”He takes you into the main room of the shop, which you now see as a sprawling store, complete with patio on the outside like you had seen the night before. He takes you behind the counter and there do you see a hatch, which he lifts open, revealing a flight of stairs. He makes his way down with you in toe, and here is where you see tons of surplus! To be more specific, Navy surplus! Hats and coats and cloaks, all emblazoned with a strange symbol on the back, what you can only assume means Navy or something similar.(1/?)
“I was a quartermaster in my youth, and when I left for retirement I still craved structure. So with the contacts I had made, I fashioned myself a general store and depot! When ever our boys in white need a restocking, they come and find me.” His entire speech is practically ladened with pride, and he tosses you a basketball cap with “Marine” in all capital blue letters on the front.“Now usually impersonating a Navy officer would be against the law, though what people don’t know, won’t hurt them, yushishishishi!” You disregard the odd laugh and put on the cap, letters front facing.“But these young punks are getting bolder and bolder, so the presence of Marines won’t nearly be enough.” With that, he opens a chest, and inside are weapons! “I entrust my shop to you, but I need to have you ready for anything, understand?”Hell you were kind of paranoid before back in college but this guy… hey, whatever works right?>Take a cutlass, from what you’ve seen most people here have tons of swords. Fight fire with fire. Besides, this one seems… special, somehow.>Take a rifle! Sure you had bad luck with the pistol last time but lightning can’t strike twice!... right? And besides, this rifle looks… different than the others.>Take what looks to be a pair of knuckle dusters. Plain and simple in design with what looks to be bolts at the end! There seems to be engravings on them...(2/2)
>>2541943>Take a cutlass, from what you’ve seen most people here have tons of swords. Fight fire with fire. Besides, this one seems… special, somehow.I have an entire swordfighting style developed for OP.
>>2541948Oh really now? What's it called my mang?
>>2541943>>Take what looks to be a pair of knuckle dusters. Plain and simple in design with what looks to be bolts at the end! There seems to be engravings on them...A rifle's useless at close range, and we have literally no experience with a sword whatsoever. Best to just go simple.
>>2541943>Take a cutlass, from what you’ve seen most people here have tons of swords. Fight fire with fire. Besides, this one seems… special, somehow.
>Take a cutlass, from what you’ve seen most people here have tons of swords. Fight fire with fire. Besides, this one seems… special, somehow.
>>2541943>Take a rifle! Sure you had bad luck with the pistol last time but lightning can’t strike twice!... right? And besides, this rifle looks… different than the others.For 3-way tie! But in all seriousness it's cool andthe best choice for the brain > brawn type of character we chose
>>2541957Sujutoryu, it's not about fighting with many swords, but as if your one sword is many.
>>2541943>Take what looks to be a pair of knuckle dusters. Plain and simple in design with what looks to be bolts at the end! There seems to be engravings on them...
>>2541948>>2541964>>2541966>>2541988Cutlass, maybe using Sujutoryu? Mayn cuts in one?>>2541961>>2541977Knuckle Dusters! >>2541974And the lone sniper.Cutlass wins it with four votes! Writing now! Just lemme go see what the fuck I said about combat mechanics just in case...
>>2541842Just because he's an egotist doesn't make him boring. In fact that's what makes him great. Imagine if Enel was just your generic strong cool guy. It wouldn't be nearly as fun 1. Have him kick everyone's ass and 2. Have his ass get kicked. Remember when he was trying to beat everyone down and everybody was like "holy shit we're fucked" but Enel just did it cause he was bored and wanted to entertain himself. It was an incredible tense situation but also fun due to how Enel acted so nonchalant and confident. Also the fact that he has a good reason ti be so egotistical is a big bonus
>>2542017Instead of being a boring strong guy he's just a boring egotist. Punk Hazard is worse than Skypiea, but I enjoy Caesar more than Enel.
While the rifle is tempting in a place where everyone is using swords, it looks to be a flintlock, with the same mechanisms as the pistol that injured you. Your left hand stings at the recent memory of the explosion. You’re lucky to have come out of that with all your fingers…As for the knuckle dusters… as cool as it may be to punch your enemies out, yesterday’s bar brawl kind of put things in a different perspective. You can’t leave everything to lucky punches. In the end you decide to take up the cutlass, a fancy thing that you have no doubt the old man customized. Its guard fits nicely around your fist, the grip feeling comfortable in your hand. You could swear you felt some form of elation when wielding the thing! Like you were an actual Marine or a swashbuckling Pirate! Or rather… that’s it’s been a long time since you were a Marine or a Pirate? Like you’re… happy and nostalgic all at once…You shake off the weird feeling, happy that the old man let you chose some form of weapon to wield in an emergency. He stands there with his own marine hat on, and a smirk on his face.“Well then, you’ve got everything sorted out it seems. If all goes well Yukiko and I will be back by the end of the afternoon. You watch over the shop, and I swear…”The room goes chill… like you’ve entered a meat locker. You’re nabbed by the collar and pulled in close to the old man’s face. It’s almost sunken in like a skull, like the Grim Reaper himself! “If I find a single hair on my daughter’s head out of place… you will know pain!”He lets you go, returning to his normal mannerisms.“Till them young man!” He clambers back out the hatch with you quickly following behind, and you lock the hatch. Chihiro is standing at the register and the old man has left… now what?>Simply do your duty, guard the store, save as much power on your phone as possible.>Make some small talk with the kid. She’s suspicious of you but maybe you can win her over?>You’re certain you’ve still got enough juice on power saver to play some tunes! Too bad you haven’t got your earbuds. Oh well, it’ll be a radio!SECRET ROLL INCOMING NEXT POST!!
>>2542148>Simply do your duty, guard the store, save as much power on your phone as possible.
>>2542148>Make some small talk with the kid. She’s suspicious of you but maybe you can win her over?
>>2542148Till then* fucking christ I write this shit in word, HOW DOES IT NOT CATCH THIS?!
>>2542148>do your duty
>>2542148>Simply do your duty, guard the store, save as much power on your phone as possible.What do have 5 maybe even 4 battery left? Let's not waste it until we find a reliable way to charge it. Especially not on this bitch
>>2542148>Simply do your duty, guard the store, save as much power on your phone as possible.The kid clearly thinks we're some sort of witch, better to save the phone power for when we need it.
>>2542178>>2542236>>2542259>>2542269The strong stoic silent type, I like it!you guys are so fucking fucked you are the mayors of fuckedville, they are giving you the key to fucked city my dudes... I rolled a 1 for the event...
>>2542324it was fun while it lasted
>>2542324Oh no. What, does a stray cannonball fired from the pirate ship that's suddenly attacking the town hit the store and instantly kill us? Or does that mook we socked roll up along with a bunch of his goon buddies?
>>2542324That means the fun is about to begin
>>2542324OUT OF THE PAN AND INTO THE FIRE!
>>2542324Oh god we're gonna encounter a pirate captain with a devil fruit aren't we? We're just some mook and we're probably gonna fight someone whose early Buggy level (anyone else remember when he was supposed to be strong). Guess we're gonna have to use our brains if to get out of this one guys.
The time seems to fly by fast enough. Oddly enough though the sun doesn’t seem to have moved all the much in the sky. You look at the rows and rows of items on offer, everything from fruits to veggies to chopped up logs for those old timey potbellied stoves. All in all it seems like a nice place, even with the frickin’ armory downstairs… you actually note there’s a lot of gardening items here, including the tons of fertilizer you happen to be sitting on.Customers come and go, buying various utensils and utilities. Not too much traffic though. It could be a Monday? There’s one or two rough and tumble types but they see you with your Marine cap and a sword on your hip and think twice before doing anything. Which is honestly a good thing you don’t want to have to stab anybody. Knocking someone’s lights out is one thing but outright stabbing someone… ending a human life? You feel… well you won’t deny you kind of feel… curious about it. Like a nagging feeling at the back of your mind makes you wonder… just what would it feel like?On that note you swear you could have seen one of those dudes before. They look way burlier than most, definitely not normal… plus, who the hell wears bandanas on their arms on this hea-Oh.Oh shit.Oh God it was one of those mooks from the bar the other night! OH SHIT!!!You snap your phone’s text to speech function on.“Chihiro, run! Run to the market and go find your mom! Quickly!”“Huh? Why? What’s wrong?”“Pirates! The ones I saw last night! Run, run to your mom, go! QUICKLY!”The alarm in your voice is enough to alert her to the sense of danger. She runs out the door and you draw your new sword. You really had hoped not to use thi-KYYYAAAAAA!!Oh no!!You make a break for the door but stop short, as a an walks in, holding Chihiro by the neck! “Boss! That’s him! He knocked out Sarkies!”He tosses Chihiro your way where she roughly skids along the floor. This guy… he looks fucking crazy. Something in his eyes… and the way he’s just smirking.“Well then”, he cracks his knuckles, “Guess we’ll just have to return the favor… by BURNING THIS WHOLE STORE DOWN!!”TO BE CONTINUED
>>2542447AS A MAN*FUCK ME I HATE WRITING THIS SHIT AT 2AM JESUS!!Anyways, thanks all for coming, thread is on pause. Tune in next time to see if my combat system doesn't fuck us over! A fair note though, I reward creative write ins. This store is full to the gills with useful items that could help you in this upcoming fight. The more creative the write in the higher your reward, anything from rerolls to bonuses! Thank you all, and have a good night!
>>2532452By all means as well, feel free to discuss, I wanna keep this thread as alive as possible. How screwed you are, tips on the dice system, found here >>2532452 etc. etcPlease give me any suggestions you have cause I want to keep this quest interesting...
>>2542447So is that a young Bellamy or am I just forgetting how he looked? He definitely looks skinnier than I remember. If it is what's this from? Is it a flashback from Dressrosa or some movie/filler episode
>>2542478Any discord to join? Otherwise, I love this so far, I just hope we can be more halo based then devil fruit based. Also, are we fucked? Next thread or session when?
>>2542518>discordliterally kill yourself
>>254252410/10 creative response
>>2542516It's indeed a younger Bellamy, around the time he's starting out his career. He's not even got a bounty yet, this is like the second town he's visited. As for where the image is from I can't rightly remember, I think it was from a flashback... yeah Jolly, THAT narrows it down a lot.>>2542518>>2542524Nah he's got a good point, a discord would be exactly what I need to get some prime shitposting going, really fuel the One Piece engines.As for the next session I probably should have chosen better, since I'm in full swing for exams next week, so probably the 23rd.
>>2542538>BellamyDoes he have a DF yet? Need to know whether to cry or not>DiscordI'd perfer if you just made a Twitter account. That way you could send updates and keep the discussion in the threads so that people who don't have Discord aren't excluded from potentially important discussions. Also makes it easier to see everyone's thought process when reading the archives
>>2542538Are we allowed to use Google Translate to figure out what they're saying after the phone dies?
>>2542584I'm getting shades of Discord-Anon From Weavers Quests.
>>2542584Well you'll just have to see won't you?Also, doesn't the same apply to people who don't use Twitter? Either way someone loses. Man that's like some non-canon villain reasoning there>>2542589Yes but you cannot use it as IC knowledge. Write-ins doing so will not be accepted, and choices will reflect your situation.
>>2542608Yeah people who don't have twitter won't get updated but they won't miss out on important discussions and it won't affect the archives at allKek. You do realize you have to make a villian with that ideology at some point now just because of this right?
>>2542692I do, and I will. No one loses, everyone wins by force! NO LOSERS HERE!
>>2542608I know some qms use twitter and discord ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I just use it mainly for simple updates, so I can stay active. I'm one of the few who doesn't have twitter so I ask if they by chance use the alternative that seems popular.
>>2542584Gonna hope not, though he probably does, with our luck. Well, at least he basically has no combat experience at this point, and if he jumps at us with those spring legs we're probably going to impale him, even if it's mostly accidental.
>>2542538Don't do a discord for your quest, use twitter.
>>2542731I doubt he's stupid enough to jump into our sword but If he does have a DF he's definitely inexperienced with using so we might be able bait him into launching himself into the a wall or the ocean if we play our cards right
Fuck, I missed the updatesGood job so far, Jerry LedAlso, enjoying the manga so far
Shit I missed the weapon choiceWoe is me for not being here to go punchman route
>>2543541DESU punchman is overdone. Fun, but really common.
>>2543545Fair enough. But swords are a bit overdone too. We could try some gunslinging for once.Imagine that shit combined with 6 powers
>>2543592Really all the fighting in OP can be summed up to "Punchman, Swordman, Shootman, Gimmickman, Fruitman", and maybe combinations of some of those on occasion. Multiclassing is a option for us, definitely.
>>2543592No one said we can't Sword with one hand and Gun with the other
>>2543596>>2543605We could do something like have a Banette on a rifle and treated as a sword when in close range
>>2543611bayonet* that was kind of weird
>>2543596That is true but every person in OP does have their certain quirk that makes them unique in a way>>2543605That sounds pretty hype desu.
>>2543635Teaming up with Perona when
>>2543635The file name is great
>>2543635>>2543641Feeding a rifle a devil fruit that has to do with puppets
>>2543596>>2543592Now I want to know what power route we should go for, trying to find a really strong devil fruit or go marines and try for Haki + rokushiki combo. Second one worked really well for Koby
>>2543700Going for a specific route sounds way too planned. Just go for what happens in the moment, my dog.
>>2543700>Now I want to know what power route we should go for, trying to find a really strong devil fruit or go marines and try for Haki + rokushiki combo.Why not both?>>2542456Missed your updates but I'm all caught up now and thoroughly enjoying the thread.
>>2543700Alternatively just get a devil fruit of good flexibility and exploit the fuck outta it. Doffy is a testiment to how bullshit those fucking things can be, just look at what he did with the basic idea of "Generating and Manipulating String"
>>2543700>>2543700Rokushiki isn't marine specific. We could find a guy and pay him money to teach us if we go pirate. Hell we could even go as a Bounty Hunter or later on as a Revolutionary
>>2543716>>2543711>>2543709>>2543707Fair enough, I'm kind of partial to joining the marines in this, but I can go for whatever.
We need to develop a dumb quirk for later use and proper weakness
>>2544506Your quirk is you can't speak the language and have to lean Japanese to survive, which has THREE alphabets. I'm using Google Translate for most of this shit!
>>2544512We should definitely try to figure a way to charge our phone and to keep it dry.
>>2544512We were studying Pirates do we know anything about boating?
>>2544552I'm not sure how to charge it but keeping it dry till then is gonna be really tough. Though not nearly as tough as learning to speak japanese in our late teens/early twenries. This is a rough start alright, not that I don't find the challenge of it appealing.>>2544512 We playing today?
>>2544729Nah m8 not today, sorry. Got shit to do early tomorrow, need to wake early. Maybe Friday or Saturday. Like I said I'll be way more free the 23rd.
>>2544745Nah that's cool Jolly, real life first.
Y'all mothers ready for 9 o'clock GMT?Y'all ready to get REKT!?Also for those concerned I've taken a new name, Esquire! For purposes I shall later reveal that I hope won't make you think less of me.
>>2546894So about 4 to 5 pm in burgerland time, good to know.
>>2546894Only if you giv spoilers
>>2547031Never! Okay maybe, what do you wanna know?
>>2547073Bellamy with devil fruuuuuit?
>>2547115A super solidmaybe
>>2547186Well that's it folks time to cry
Alright you mongrels.Let's do this.______________You kneel down to try and pick up Chihiro from where that son of a bitch threw her. You’re fairly certain you heard him right… he’s going to try and burn down this whole store. Chihiro has tears in her eyes clearly terrified of the situation unfolding, and hell you don’t blame her. He easily stands over 6 feet, wearing a pink shirt with a green sash around his waist. You honestly expected him to be wearing chaps or something similar but nope, below the belt is a regular pair of grey pants, seemingly made out of hemp. You guess that must be big in this part of Japan. You notice though on his feet are a pair of bloodstained clogs. Whose blood it is you can only guess. You hear him giggling, dropping into a stance similar to that of a boxer.“A Marine huh? As if the Navy could stop me!”You need to think this through. There are tons of things in this shop you could use. Several pallets worth of manure, all of it flammable but you can’t risk setting fire to another shop in the same week! Besides where are you going to find a match? Cooking oil, same problem… there’s always the pots and pans… Or.. maybe you could just run away? After all they're after you, what're the chance they'd go after the shop or the girl? No... that just doesn’t feel quite right. Like you’d be betraying your own sense of… justice or something. You don’t know where the hell these feelings keep coming from but they have a point… you can’t run away from this, from him. He’s too dangerous to be left alone, not to mention what his goons might do…“Are you just going to stand there asshole?! You beat up man vice-captain Sarkies you bastard! Now you’re gonna pay!!”>Try and rile him up to get this fight one-on-one, that way you can get the girl to escape through the window in the back. >Tell Chihiro to hide in the basement behind the counter, and draw your sword. This moron's unarmed!>Nab Chihiro, and try and make a break for the window! The shop is secondary, you need to keep this girl safe!>Write-in?
>>2547312>>Try and rile him up to get this fight one-on-one, that way you can get the girl to escape through the window in the back.
>>2547312>Try and rile him up to get this fight one-on-one, that way you can get the girl to escape through the window in the back.
WOW I need to get a twitter for this shit, there's like,>>2547325>>2547344Two people. Well what ever, I'll wait an extra ten minutes, if there's no one by then I'll call the vote and get this train rolling! We're only on what, page four?
>>2547312>Try and rile him up to get this fight one-on-one, that way you can get the girl to escape through the window in the back. We need to prioritize her safety. Hopefully she can tell any law enforcement they have here about what's going on but until that happens it's better to fight him 1v1 instead of all his goons gaining up on us. If worst comes to worst we can try and run afterward
>>2547352Alright! Three people to start out, writing now!
Due me a favor, roll me a 1d20 to beat a secret DC.
>>2547388Fucking, DO me a favor* Christler fucking Jeep.
Rolled 17 (1d20)>>2547388
Rolled 2 (1d20)>>2547388Sorry, it wasn't letting me vote for a few minutes
Rolled 18 (1d20)>>2547388
Rolled 2 (1d20)>>2547388Three now.
>>2547420>>2547402>>2547406DC passed my friends, well done!Continuing to write!
>>2547420Phew, glad you beat me to the punch.
>>2547402>>2547406>>2547420Pretty good especially considering the rolls last time
While I'm not advocating for our normie, seemingly well adjusted MC to kill a man, on the off chance we do actually end up killing, there's a decent chance we could get his devil fruit. It's not the strongest but it is a good one, though we could just sell it for mad dosh. That, plus he might have a small bounty on his head, means we might get a decent start with equipment and supplies besides the sword and any weapons we pick off the pirates.
You’re about to do something stupid, you just know it.“Hey, asshole…”You pick the kid up as gently as possible, getting up from your own kneeling position. “I’m the one you want, I knocked out your friend Sardines or whatever his name was, this kid has nothing to do with it.”His brow twitches when you seem to mispronounce his friend’s name, and you swear you can see veins popping out from his forehead. Alright, perfect, have him focus his anger on you.“You and me, one-on-one, you let the girl go and I’ll show you the same treatment I did Sarcasm.”“ALRIGHT THAT WAS ON PURPOSE!!”“Might have been…”He glares at you wide eyed and angry, teeth gritting in fury, like you’re looking down the muzzle of a miffed hyena. But then he smiles as amused, and relaxes his pose slightly.“Fine then… men! Let the little girl pass… don’t harm her but… go ahead and let LOOSE on this town!!”“You what?!” Chihiro yells out, her parents are still out, both of them in town!The pirates behind him let loose a roar, and make their way down the cobblestone roads to what you assume to be the town square, and the docks to fetch more people for the looting!“NO! YOU CAN’T! STOP IT, STOP IT RIGHT NOW!!” Chihiro screams, rushing Bellamy and tackling his leg, beating his knee with both fists.“Stop it?” He cocks his leg back when Chihiro pauses her beating, “How about you MAKE ME!!” With a quick pivot of his foot he spins around and hooks his leg around Chihiro, sending her flying towards the door! She lands outside on the road with a thud, quickly scrambling back up to her feet! Her tears re free flowing now, her lower lip quivering.“THIS IS ALL YOUR FAULT!!” she screams, before running off to town as quickly as she can.With that out of the way, Bellamy turns back to you, and tenses once more.“Now… let’s PLAY!!”He crouches down to the ground and his leg- WHAT THE HELL IS UP WITH HIS HIS CALVES?!>ROLL DODGE 1d25+5!
Rolled 19 + 5 (1d25 + 5)>>2547459
Rolled 15 + 5 (1d25 + 5)>>2547459
>>2547455Don't think Devil Fruits just appear nearby after their owner dies, if I remember correctly. Don't they just reappear somewhere out in the wide world, completely at random? Wouldn't be opposed to killing him, although it may be a little early to become a murderer.
>>2547468Marines kill pirates all the time, and killing a pirate isn't murder if it's protecting someone, especially in op world, it's looked at in good views. unless it's an infamous pirate with connections
>>2547470Well yeah, I don't see any problems with killing the pirate, realistically speaking, but unless absolutely necessary I feel like it's a little early for our normie npc to murder a person, even if they're a scumbag pirate. Would probably traumatize the poor guy.
Rolled 18 + 5 (1d25 + 5)>>2547459
>>2547464>>2547482>>2547466Jeez you guys roll high when it matters! Writing!
>>2547468Also to answer your question yes, they re-appear randomly some where in the wide open world. The chances of finding one are quite rare!
>>2547496Wait I thought they just took over the nearest fruit and turned that into a df
>>2547477Ah yeah, fair enough, we did kinda try back in the bar, with the whole idea to stab someone with a broken bottle before that failed
>>2547513nope, they take a random fruit.
>>2547513Eeeeh, it's more a working theory. If that were the case then Punk Hazard has a fucking bag full of Devil Fruits, INCLUDING a Snow-Logia! But everywhere I read it just says the snow logia Monet ate is in some "unknown status", hence why I've decided to go along with the "random respawn" option.That being said you could get his fruit, if you kill him and then roll high enough.
>>2547459.......wait did we just start speaking japanese out of nowhere?
>>2547532Nah, it's still your phone. That being said you're at like...2%.
>>2547538Oh shit, let's turn that bad boy off then. Best to keep at least some a bu
>>2547543keep at least some power in reserve*
>>2547538Turn that shit to low power mode
With a great “BOING” sound he SPRINGS forward at blinding speed! You barely have enough time to react before he’s flying at you, and you have to fall backwards to avoid him! He soars past you, and you feel the wind rushing past you while he continues to the back of the store, and SLAMS into the counter head first! For a moment he simply stays there, head embedded into the bottom of the counter…In fact you’re a bit concerned right no- oh wait nevermind, he’s fine! He’s just stuck! He pushes and pushes till finally his head pops out of the indent he’s made. He’s clearly bleeding from his head right now…“H… H-how do you like… my バネバネの実... you son of a bitch?!”If you’re not mistaken, his fucking legs just turned into springs and almost crashed into you… You’re starting to think you might not be in Japan anymore. Also, his what? Bane-Bane no mi? Must be some weird martial art… no, it just doesn’t add up. Did you hallucinate? His legs COMPRESSED and he FLEW at you! He BOUNCED at you! “W-w-well? What are you -cough!- waiting for!? COME AT ME!!”He crouches again, once more you see it, his freakish transformation! His legs ARE springs!! OH MY GOD!!Alright, calm down, think. You’re in a general store. There’s tons of improvisational weapons to be used here if you focus, no need to turn to your sword just yet, if at all!... though you really, really want to… OH CRAP, you almost forgot! Your phone! You quickly check it… 2%, damn it you’re almost out of power and you’re on power saver mode. Screw it, you don’t need to hear anything from this asshole...>Forget improv! Retaliate! Swing your sword at thing freak! He is not NORMAL!>You remember! The sacks of manure! If you can get him to land in them you can find a match and light him on fire!>There’s some rope, maybe you can use it to trip him up the next time he flies at you!>Write in! There’s TONS of more stuff I didn’t list! Cooking Oil, kindling, ice, fruits and veggies, you name it!
>>2547582Are there any pitchforks or some other sort of Sharp Pointy Object on a Stick?
>>2547582>Whack him with the flat edge of our bladeAlso,>You’re starting to think you might not be in Japan anymore.Oh wow, our thickheaded moron finally figured it out!
>>2547600There are rakes, yes.
>>2547602Wait, do cutlasses have a flat edge? Or are they sharp all the way around?
>>2547610>sharp all the way aroundfund this please.
>>2547610Nah they have a flat edge on the back, since they're cutting weapons.
>>2547582Is there a wall of alcohol we can get him to crash into? If we get him covered in alcohol and then use a kindling we can set just him on fire without burning down the whole barAlso can we get a general layout of the store like you did for the bar. I need to see what we're working with before we make a plan
>>2547605Hmm, then I guess we try and get him covered in cooking oil. If he can't get a solid foothold, than presumably he can't use his power.
>>2547624You make a good point! I'll go ahead and make that right about now
>>2547582>Write in! There’s TONS of more stuff I didn’t list! Cooking Oil, kindling, ice, fruits and veggies, you name it!Salt! Into his fucking eyes. Blind him!
Just listing a few of his weaknesses for reference. It'll be easier to keep on mind when it's written down and everything1. Once he leaps he can't change directions or stop 2. He needs a couple seconds to charge3. The core of his power is his legs. If we even slightly cripple the legs we have a huge advantageFeel free to add any I didn't list even if it seems super obvious
Right here is the format of the shop. Purple are both kindling and manure, the one on the left is the manure and the right is kindling. Circular things are barrels full of gardening tools, with the green are ailes full of fruits, veggies, salt, etc etc.Go ahead and go wild, skies the limit!
Correct me if I’m wrong, but if his spring legs were to get cold from the ice, would that affect how well his springs could work for him?
>>2547670What's the barrel between us Bellamy contain? Is it a bunch of 1 thing or a lot of different things
>>2547686It would, metal usually stick to metal when cold, though that's more of a snap freeze situation. Best the shop has is ice cubes.>>2547690Ton of one thing, which happens to be pepper! Ground up no less!
>>2547696Convenient. Can we grab a handful and toss it into his face?
>>2547702You can! It'll even give him a negative modifier during his next roll if you succeed.
>>2547703Debuffing the enemy is never a bad call, should it work out.
>>2547696Really what luck! Correct me if I'm wrong but if Bellamy say flies toward the barrel in between us he'd also go flying right through the kindling and the manure right? So if we were to hide behind the barrel and dodge right as he comes at us he would set himself on fire. Even if he doesn't go through the kindling or the manure he'd still be getting fucked by the pepper. We should also try to piss him off somemore so he doesn't really think about the consequences and do a super strong charge toward us almost guaranteeing he gets lit up
>>2547713>>2547639>>2547625>>2547624>>2547602Alright, so the general consensus seems to beSalt and pepper his face, and then WHACK him in the face. I'll roll the opposing DC, you guys go ahead an>>2547720You're not wrong in your plan but there are a few flaws. To be clear when I say kindling I mean bundles of sticks and logs. To actually light any of this one fire you'd need matches, which are off to the left in the aisles. Plus, you'd need to use your phone to anger him. Other than that, yeah that could work.
Rolled 14 (1d20)>>2547726I'm assuming the normal d20 right
>>2547726Fucking shit it cut me off, regardless,1d25+5 if you please, best of 3!
Rolled 14 + 5 (1d25 + 5)>>2547737
>>2547736Nah, this time with modifiers! For both your new sword, and athletics ability we agreed on last session.
Rolled 1 + 5 (1d25 + 5)>>2547737werent we the more smart type?
Rolled 17 + 5 (1d25 + 5)>>2547737
Rolled 24 + 5 (1d25 + 5)>>2547740I thought we chose the smart route
>>2547739>>2547743>>2547753>>2547757To those correcting me, you are correct! The +5 still applies here though as you're trying to strategise.Unfortunately for you, the cursed dice have returns.
You have a great idea… this store is full of useful items. Salt, pepper, kindling and more! Combined with your intellect, and this new sword, you’re going to kick some ass! First, you’ll dive for the pepper barrel, nabbing a handful and throwing it into his face. Disoriented, he’ll sneeze, which is when you bring the edge of your new cutlass to his face in a brilliant non-lethal take down! Your foe is now injured and his nostrils are irritated. You’ll have him in the palm of your hand/You move for the pepper barrel, reaching out your han-Your palm knocks into the barrel, tipping it just so. JUST enough to have it crest and the fall forward, tipping its contents out onto Bellamy’s shoes.You simply stand there, dumbfounded as to how you could have miscalculated to badl-WHAMThe impact is immediate. You feel a fist connect with your chin at blinding speed, and find yourself now on the floor, in a dust cloud of pepper. Through the cloud you can barely make out the shape of Bellamy springing from his position to the front of the store, then back again, now standing over your pepper covered form. He picks you up by the collar and lifts you from the floor… shit.“それはあなたができることは何ですか? 私はこれが挑戦だと思った! あなたに何か新しいことを試してみましょう... スプリング...”He cocks his arm back, closing his fingers into a fist. Like his calves, his forearms compresse into coils.“パンチ!”TO BE CONTINUED________________________Sorry folks, cutting this one short, I’m incredibly tired and am probably going to start a new thread soon as I archive this one.Anyways I have a big announcement to make, I’ve recently started a patreon page, as I am now I’m unemployed and don’t apply for benefits, and people have yet to hire me, despite the 20 resumes I’ve sent out in the last 42 hours. Regardless even if you just donate a single dollar that would help me out tremendously, and allow me more time to do the thing I love, which is to write.Link can be found below, I wouldn’t blame you if you didn’t, as this is basically digital panhandling and I am shilling like mad. https://www.patreon.com/EsquireThank you so much for your consideration, I’m going to go make myself a twitter. Good night one and all, see you next thread.
>>2547849Thanks for running. Hope you get hired dude. It's too early for me to decide but depending on how good the quest goes I'd be willing ti donate
>>2547849Someday we won't critfail on a vital combat roll.
>>2547867We're gonna burn every building we fight in and get a high bounty because of it mark my words
>>2547849Thanks for the run Jolly Red
Hmm this looks promising. You have my attention OP, will try to vote.Also >>2547459>“THIS IS ALL YOUR FAULT!!” she screams, before running off to town as quickly as she can....Chihiro is going to join the Navy and start hunting us down in the future, isn't she.
>>2549271Bounty Hunting my dude. Could work for us
>>2549521Man I didn't even think about the possibility of being a bounty hunter. It was just marine vs pirate for me
>>2549521Oh yes, I suppose bounty hunter is a possible route for us. A good middle ground between marine and pirate, really.
>>2549521I like the sound of this
>>2549521I could see it, though it wouldn't have the support grouping or benefits of either, it would allow for a bit more freedom. I'm still personally for marines though.
>>2549648We can have groups thou. Just make a group of freelance mercenaries
>>2549521Ooo yes, Bounty Hunting sounds nice.I was thinking about temporarily joining up with the Marines. We'd get some proper combat training and maybe a crash course in learning Japanese. The catch is getting out without stepping on toes and burning any bridges.
>>2549774I think you can do it for a few years and then retire. kind of like military service.
>>2549784The only two marines I remember retiring are Sengoku and Garp. And they're old as fuck
>>2547865>>2547867>>2547914>>2549271>>2549521>>2549598>>2549635>>2549640>>2549648To the numerous people watching this quest, guess what I just did! You can now follow me on twitter @esquire_red https://twitter.com/esquire_redBoom!
>>2550013Because they didn't want to till later, doesn't mean you can't retire earlier.
>>2551025does Aokiji count? or did he technically go rogue?
>>2551033He counts, he might be a pirate now but he did resign normally.
Bounty Hunting might be available but I'm still rooting for Marine route. If we can, at least.
Since QM is not gonna be back till at least the 23rd and it's been nearly two weeks since the thread has been open, someone should really archive this.
>>2560815Done already my mang, you can go vote if you want! http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=One%20PieceVery last one, though I forgot to add my name in the tags.
