Last time on Human Quest Super!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j72ca3NfUkM

The prodigy of Earth, Eric ventured out into the cosmos once more at the request of the Saiyan King.
His mission: To go with Cabba the Elite Warrior to Planet Plant and sabotage the Tuffles any way they can.
However the young human decided to do things differently.

By taking away their super weapon and introducing them to the concept of humanity they previously cast away, Eric managed to turn Planet Plant on its head without directly hurting anyone.
Now with the Tuffle twins Oren and Kamin by his side he faces what the future has in store for him!
>>
After fighting Kale and subsequently re-awakening her latent Super Saiyan powers you were knocked out cold.
For an entire day you rested in a dreamless sleep, trying desperately to forget the things that troubled your mind.
Once you recovered your energy your eyes snapped open and you found yourself in your room.

Sitting up you grab your head, trying to recall the events that transpired before you were KO'd.
The horrors of Planet Plant though still fresh on your mind now feel more like bad dreams rather than reality. Were it not for the Tuffle twins hanging out on this very planet you'd easily write them off as works of your imagination.
But they are real, as real as the pain you feel in your gut.

"Man Kale...
Ooof..."

Still groggy you get out of bed and walk out into the hallway without a shirt on.
Navigating your way to the kitchen you start brewing yourself a nice, strong coffee to kickstart your day with.
As you're pouring out the inky, black goodness your mentor steps into the room and greets you.

"Good morning.
How did you sleep?"

"Like someone who got shot in the head.
Speaking of which... did you get the license plate of the truck that hit me?"

"I don't follow...
But on the bright side I'm happy to inform you that your little spar with Kale has been successful!"

You pause as you are about to add sugar to your coffee and stare at her.
"Really?"

"Yes! It seems the intensity of your battle was enough to evoke strong enough emotions within her!
Congratulations. Though if we're being honest that would've happened on its own regardless.
You just accelerated it."

"Well at least I helped."
You slurp some precious lifeblood and feel energy returning to your body.
"Ahhh... that's better!
So. How are things?"

"Good I'd say.
Not much has happened while you were out of commission.
Though if I remember correctly some people asked quite frequently about your status."

Vados then goes over a list of individuals that apparently had urgent business with you.
Caulifla, whose fire has been rekindled after witnessing Kale transform. Hyssop who's been growing restless about the status of his family. And finally the twins that had nothing to do while the only person they are somewhat familiar with was out cold.

You take one more sip while weighing your options.

>I guess if I don't deal with Caulifla now I'll regret it soon enough
>I made a promise to Hyssop... He deserves my attention the most
>Aw shit... I'm responsible for those two aren't I?
>Other?
>>
>>3282563
>I made a promise to Hyssop... He deserves my attention the most
>>
>>3282563
>Alright, maybe I can deal with multiple things at once...
>I'll pick up the twins, and then go see Hyssop. That way they won't be bored, at least.
>>
>>3282571
Support.

>>3282563
>I guess if I don't deal with Caulifla now I'll regret it soon enough
Must romance the Kefla. Also we tend to grow stronger by fighting.
>>
>>3282571
This
>>
>>3282580
That can probably wait, the Twins and Hyssop are cases we should probably prioritize more than Caulifla wanting to beat us up until she goes Super.
>>
>>3282563

>>3282571
This
>>
Well that's certainly an... interesting combination...
But it could work

>writing
>>
Giving your neck a good morning crack you think through your options and conclude that no matter what you do, you shouldn't leave the twins alone. Even if it's just trailing you at least then they'll have something to occupy themselves with.

"Hey Vados. Where are Oren and Kamin?"

"You named them already? How cute.
Anyway they are near the garden, watching the people from Universe 9 tend to it."

"Wow. That bad huh?"

"I'm afraid so.
They don't seem to have a grasp on the concept of "free time" so they are clueless as to what to do."

"Those two are gonna need a hobby...
Hang on! I think I got something..."
You rush back to your room and grab one of your old belongings you brought with you.
You'll definitely notice its absence when cooking but sometimes you must make sacrifices.
Coming back to Vados you start questioning her about some other stuff.
"So Vados.
Could I ask a favor from you?"

"Hmmm?"

You explain the situation to her and what you want. When you finish she just lets out a sigh.
"Fine... But it'll cost you."

"When we're done we'll drink some wine.
How's that sound?"

"You got yourself a deal!"
She smiles.

Putting a shirt on you head out and approach the two kids standing underneath a tree, watching the others work.
"Enjoying yourselves?"

"No..."
Kamin responds.

"There's nothing to do."
Oren continues.

"If there were things to do...
Would you even know how to enjoy them?"

They exchange a quick look and then respond simultaneously.
"No..."

"Thought so.
How about this? I got something to take care of.
It's bound to be more interesting than... this. And if you come with, you'll get a present."

"Pre...sent?"

"Jeez... I can't believe I'll have to teach you "fun".
Maybe on Earth..."

"E-yarth?"

"No, Earth. Eaaaarth.
Anyway. Do we have a deal?"
They nod.
"Good."
You step over and ruffle their hair.
>>
With that dealt with you head over to Hyssop who's currently tending to the tomatoes with his oversized mittens, so he doesn't freeze the delicate fruits by accident. Stopping his work he looks up when he notices you.

"Oh... you're back.
Did you manage to recover?"

"More or less."

"That's good to hear...
I have no clue why you keep throwing yourself into danger...
We faced the threat of Destruction just to get away from conflict, yet you seem to seek it."

You shrug.
"I think it's fun.
But I have the luxury of choosing. So I understand your confusion.
Anyway, I heard from Vados that you've been asking for me."
You give the walking block of ice a smile.
"Don't worry I haven't forgotten about you.
I asked Vados and apparently there is a way to get you your wish.
There is some backwater planet named Namek where there are wishing orbs."

"The Super Dragon Balls?"
He asks.

"I don't know if they are super or not but sure.
According to Vados they should do the job and I trust her knowledge."

"T-Thank you Eric...
I truly appreciate it."

"Don't mention it.
I promised you after all.
Now I'll just need to know who are we talking about."

"My wife and my son..."

"Are... they alive?"

"I don't know. Were it possible I'd like them to be wished here."

"A'ight.
I'll see what I can do-"

"Wait!"
Hyssop stops you.
"W-Would it be possible for me to come with?"

>Sure
>I don't think that's a good idea
>Other?
>>
>>3282662
>Sure
>>
>>3282662
>Sure
what's Namek without at least one person who's duty there is effectively just spectate.
Like Bulma!
Why did they bring Bulma?
>>
>>3282662
>Other

Ask her why. Not opposed to taking her along, but I’m curious as to why she wants to tag along.
>>
>>3282662
>>Sure
>>
>>3282670
Hyssop is the ice guy, anon.
Sorrel is bunny.
Hop is the cat.
>>
>>3282673
Guess that’s what happens when I try to quest first thing in the morning.
>>
>>Sure
>>
If the Namekian dragonballs are similar to u7 that's 3 wishes.
Now it's possible we'll need all 3 (rez both and warp them)
Or possible we'll only need to warp them.
There's also the fact that the Namekians might want to use a wish to defuse.
We might possibly have a spare wish, now what would we wish for?
Restore Planet Plant?
Attempt Kefla plan?
Immortality?
>>
So... the Thing is tagging along

>writing
>>
>>3282702
I'd say kefla, or the ability to absorb energy [magic, ki etc.]
>>
"Sure. I don't see a reason why you couldn't tag along."

"Oh thank you!
It's just that... if it works out.
I wouldn't want to miss them. When they arrive I want to be there to comfort them and explain things...
You know..."

"Yeah, I get it.
Now come on or Vados will get mad."

As you line up and the others touch your shoulder while you hold onto Vados.
"Please make sure you hold onto your partners tightly and refrain from leaving the channel as the coldness of space can be quite uncomfortable."

Taking off in a pillar of light you find yourselves traveling through the cosmos once more.
"I'll never get tired of this!"
You observe and reach into your pockets.
"Here."
You give your present to the two droids.

"What is this? Some sort of a communicator?"

"No. It's a device used to store music on.
If you plug those dangly bits in your ears you can listen to them.
I have a couple hundred songs on there so you can browse to your hearts content.
But uh... I only have the one. So you'll have to share until I get the chance to buy another."

They put in the earplugs and cautiously start fiddling with the mp3 player until they accidentally start a song and they recoil in shock. Worried you reach forward and tune it down a bit for them.
"Make sure it's not too loud or it can hurt your ears."

Just as you finally land on the blue planet with the green sky they manage to figure out all the quirks of the device and start enjoying themselves once they find some music they like. The locals around you stare in awe and confusion as a bunch of random aliens show up on their planet before Vados walks up to them and they all bow before her.

"Mistress Vados..."
One of the green men speaks up.
"You honor us with your presence!
How may we serve you?"

"I thank you for your hospitality dear Namekians but I'm afraid it's not me you are concerned with.
I'm just the driver so to speak."
Vados points to you and introduces you.
"Gentlemen this person here is an associate of mine and he wishes to speak with you."

Stepping forward you look over the denizens of this "Namek".
They appear to be all male at first glance and possess both green skin and antennae sticking out of their foreheads.
To your surprise they are also... remarkably young. Most of them don't appear to have reached adolescence yet and those few who appear to be mature are old, really old.

One such specimen, a rather wrinkly and short Namekian steps up to you.
"Welcome stranger.
I am Guit, the leader of this village."

You give the man a little bow before introducing yourself.
"My name is Eric. I come from a far away planet called Earth and I've come to request your help."
The green man raises his eyebrow upon hearing this.
"I heard you people have these things called Dragon Balls and I need to use them."

The village elder shuts his eyes and sighs.
"Please... follow me."
He turns around and leads you into a strange and white house which appears to be as Spartan as it gets with little to no furniture or any sort of decoration to speak of except for a table. He walks behind it and leans on the thick marble like material.
"We don't like to speak of the Dragon Balls to outsiders, much less allow them to use it...
You see they wield incredible power and with it comes unimaginable responsibility.
But since you came here with Lady Vados we have no choice but to comply."

"I don't want to force the issue... if you feel threatened-"

"No... that's not it stranger.
I don't need to hear your apology or your reason for needing the Dragon Balls. We'll give you your chance so don't feel guilty about it. But you must understand that we won't just give them to you. That'd be incredibly irresponsible of us, not to mention how insulting it'd be to our ancestors and traditions."

You nod.
"I understand."

The elder sighs.
"Let me explain...
In each major village we have one Dragon Ball, seven in total.
And each of those has a trial associated with it which test the users in both body, mind and spirit.
When a young Namekian reaches adulthood they must undertake and pass one of these tests to be recognized as mature.
Some fail their tests and so they set out to try their luck with another. When they pass they get the right to hold that Ball.
But only those very few, exceptional individuals of great might and purity can pass all the trials and summon the Dragon as a reward."

"So I must prove my worth if I'd like to use them."

"That is correct.
And I can not lie, it's a rare occurrence for one of our people to summon the Dragon.
An outsider will have even less of a chance. But this is a security measure we must follow for the Dragon Balls have the power to deliver us into a new golden age... but also to destroy us.
So... Are you ready for your first test?"

>Yes!
>Can I ask others for help?
>No...
>Other?
>>
>>3282790
>Yes!
>>
>>3282790
>Can I ask others for help?
We wouldn’t be so crass as to ask Vados to participate directly, but it seems proper to see if Hyssop could be allowed to contribute since we are making the wish on his behalf.
>>
>>3282790
>Yes!
>What sort of trials are we talking here? Am I going to need to beat some of your warriors up, or solve a riddle, or what?

He said they test body, spirit and mind, but that’s vague as hell.
>>
>>3282790
>Yes!
>>
>>3282790
>Yes
>Are there any rules I should know about?
>>
>>3282790
>Yes!
>>
>>3282796
Support. Eric and him as it's for him the twins could get some impro lessons in their history or something if they don't want watch the tests.
>>
Okay

>writing
>>
"May I ask some questions first?"

"Of course..."
He nods.
"But know that depending on the question itself I may or may not be able to answer it."

"Well first... What kind of trials are we talking about?
Do I have to fight your strongest warriors, solve some puzzles or-"

"I can't say. For if I disclosed them to you it'd defeat their purpose.
Similarly you'll find no Namekian on this planet who'll tell you."

"Thought so... The other big one on my mind is this: Can I ask someone for help?
The wish is not for me but for him."

"Then why doesn't he do it?"

"He's afraid he wouldn't be able to complete your trials so he asked me.
But it's his wish and I feel like he should be able to participate."

"Well..."
The elder thinks for a moment with his finger on his chin.
"It's not unheard of that more than two people would work together in order to gather the balls.
However I must warn you... if such a thing happens and your friend contributes even one ball then as per tradition you won't be allowed to make a wish unless both of you agree to it.
Is that alright with you?"
You nod.
"Then by all means go ahead.
However I'd like to begin the first trial immediately if it's okay with you."

"Of course."

The elder takes a moment to think with his eyes closed. The tension in the room rises as he remains silent for several minutes before opening his eyes.
"Normally this trial would be a little different but considering your... unusual circumstances we'll have to alter it a bit.
Please. May I see your hands?"

Not sure how to react to that you blindly follow the Namekians instructions and extend both your hands over the table.
He grabs them with his long nailed fingers and turns them upside down as if he's trying to read your palm.
Holding onto them tightly he gives you a most intense look and speaks up.
"Usually at this point I'd ask the participant what they'd wish for... But since you're doing this for someone else I'll ask this:
If your circumstances were different... if you could have a wish all to yourself, what would it be?"

That’s not what’s being asked and that limit isn’t something we know about IC. We were asked what we would do with our own wish and Erik would definitely spend a Wish on Kelfa before a movement technique.

On an other hand I like to aim for something that's actually reachable. Besides newer really agreed with that wish anyways as neither fued person or the fusion really gave damn.

Honestly, the Kefla thing is pure Waifu at this point. Seems like something Eric would talk to Kale, Caulifla & Kefla about before that came to mind as a wish.
>>
...i don't mean to be that guy, and I'm sure the teleporting is still winning, but anyone else notice the sudden influx of players appearing?
>>
>>3282916
Yeah that's what I'm thinking, we felt empathy that she'd somewhat cease to exist but a wish like that is a meme until we actually have cause to make it other than waifu.

The funniest thing is the 11 minute silence before "...Kefla?" And then there was just an explosion.
I do want to give her her chance though. Just we don't know her well enough just yet to make it our driving motive.
>>
Forget about Kefla, Vados is the best waifu and we can use the wish from the Super Dragon Balls for something else, like omniversal peace, or absolute immortality, or a sandwich (the bestest sandwich)

You think about it for a moment and finally speak up.
"Well... A teleportation technique would be nice.
I always have to ask Vados and I'm starting to feel like I'm imposing on her."

"Hmmmm..."
The elder shuts his eyes and starts thinking.
Finally he lets go of your hand with a sigh.
"Well you answered genuinely. And though selfish at first glance your wish does stem from selflessness.
But even with that I'm afraid I can not give you the Dragon Ball."

"What?"
You ask him.
"M-May I know why?"

"I asked what you'd wish for.
And what you gave me felt like something you just came up with, not something you truly wish for from the bottom of your heart. I'm sorry but I can not condone something that would be a grave misuse of the dragons power."

You stand up and take your leave.
"Thank you elder."

"I'm sorry. Please send in your friend."

Leaving the place empty handed Hyssop charges you and starts bombarding you with questions.
"How did it go?"

"I didn't get the ball."

"Wha-"

You point at the building.
"The elder asked for you next.
Go ahead and give it a try."

"I-I'm afraid... if you failed in that then I have no chance..."

Giving him a cocky grin you pat him on the back and start shoving him inside.
"It'll be fiiiine! Go on in!"

As Hyssop enters Vados approaches you.
"So... what was the matter?"

"Apparently my wish was a bit wishy washy.
Hyssop has his whole family thing going on. He should get it no problem."

"Hmmm... How did he exactly phrase his question?"

"Let's see... it was... "If I had a wish, what would it be" or something.
I don't know. I just asked for a teleport technique."

"Yes. That checks out.
Well, better keep that in mind for the next ones."
And just as Vados finished that Hyssop came out of the tent with the ball in his hand.
>>
>>3282956
Well, that went about as expected. Guess we can let Hyssop do all the “Noble intentions” stuff while we beat up anybody that needs beating up and solve any mind puzzles.
>>
>>3282956
It just occured to me that "I don't know" was a valid answer, and probably would've had a better chance of us passing.
>>
>>3282965
We could probably have gone with unruining planet plant, in hindsight.
I'd like to see Kefla again before going full madman though.
>>
>>3282956
Ha! So the Kefla wish would've worked, because we actually considered It earlier IC.
>>
>>3282974
Yes. That would've been a valid answer
>>
>>3282974
Good thing we asked for Hyssop to participate too.
>>
>>3282978
Shugs still a meme. This is about right tho as this isn't really for us.
>>
So are we going to use one of the wishes for a teleport technique later? If so then would the technique be ki based or psychic based?
>>
>>3282988
No anon that was just us trying to think of a wish, we can learn teleportation naturally eventually.
Unironically a more in character wish would be something related to Kefla or Planet Plant.
Planet Plant fucked Eric up.
>>
"Holy shit! That's massive!"
You look at the watermelon sized crystal ball with a single star in it.

"Erm... now what?"
Hyssop asks.
"He just asked me what I'd wish for and he gave me this."

"Now we go to the second village.
Vados?"

She looks into the orb on her scepter then points you in a direction.
"It's 500 kilometers that way."

Following her instructions you find the next village where the next Dragon Ball is located and almost immediately you notice something different about this place as one Namekian rushes to Vados.
"Lady Vados!"
The buff Namekian bows before her.

"Oh Pirina! Long time no see!
How is it?"

"Good, all things considered.
Saonel and I are... working on repopulating planet Namek.
Many of our brethren are already reborn but... many more remain.
And all those eggs are taking a toll on us."

"Wait... eggs?
Repopulating?!"
You ask him and Vados.

"The Namekians reproduce asexually. They do this by regurgitating eggs.
Another quirk of their life cycle is that Namekians are capable of fusing with one another, thus exponentially increasing their abilities."

"And once we are done we can... "give birth" to those we assimilated.
If we so choose. The downside is that we loose the power we gained."

"Weird...
Anyway, we're here for the Dragon Balls.
Show them Hyssop."

The gentle giant raises his big orb and the Namekian freezes in place.
"I-Incredible! You managed to get one?
Hmmm... Very well. Follow me."

Pirina then leads you on top of a plateau, far away from the village.
"Since we're short on elders I'll be the one to handle your test.
This is a sacred area for my people and this is where your trial will take place.
The trial of pain!"
He gives Hyssop a sharp look.
"Take all the time you need. Then, if you're ready come here."

Hyssop looks worried.

>Actually, I'll be doing that
>Nah he got this
>Other?
>>
>>3282943
See the biggest problem with that is she doesn't seem to actually care at all. You have to remember she's a fusion, she doesn't just not exist, she's just two existences. Neither Kefla, nor the two people who make her up seem to mind the splits and fusions. If they don't care then we're just empathizing feelings on Kefla that she doesn't actually have. Plus a wish would either
A) just make a clone
B) force a fusion on them
And cause trouble for the people anons want to "help" for the sake of waifus. Don't get me wrong, Kefla is top tier but closest you're getting to a legitimate kefla route is probably a threeway relationship with Caulifa and Kale. Ironically that actually seems like it would be easier than trying to waifu just one, if that's any consolation
>>
>>3283013
>Actually I'll be doing that
Bring on the pain, it only makes me stronger.
>>
>>3283013
>Actually, I'll be doing that
If we lose Hyysop can try, no real downside
>>
>>3283016
Another option is seeing if we can join or find the Time Patrol.
Mostly because Chronoa apparently has a technique that allows fusions to stay together for as long as they want.
>>
>>3283025
That could help, that technique would still probably require being in a relationship with both and fusing/unfusing all the time, so same thing mostly. It would still be cool to learn that, and more advanced time abilities from the Kai whose bread and butter is time.
>>
>>3283016
Technically:
"According to Vados, the fusion creates a new body and personality greater than the sum of the two individuals"

Emphasis on the personality.
So yes, de-fusion does technically mean Kefla ceases to exist. But at the same time technically she doesn't since she goes back to being Caulifla and Kale. Fusion is fucky

I embarrassed enough as is guys.

"Actually I'll be taking this test. Not him."

The Namekian gives you a doubtful look.
"Are you sure? You know what that-"

"Yes, yes. The last guy told me.
So come on! Give it to me."

*sigh*
"Very well.
Come here."

Doing as you're instructed you walk up to the spot where the soil is purple for some reason and Pirina continues with the instructions.
"Okay. Now I'll need you to take off your shirt and place both hands on your nape."
Doing as you're told you don't even question why he wants you to strip. You have a pretty good idea as is.
Once you're finished the Namekian cracks his knuckles and spreads his fingers apart, allowing his nails to flash for a moment.
"Just so you know... I take no pleasure in this.
Now... grit your teeth."

Steeling yourself you prepare for the worst. And boy do you get it.
You are instructed by your examiner that you'll need to not move an inch and withstand everything he tosses at you without screaming while he proceeds to use his claws to cut into you and rip out parts of your flesh.
Each swipe brings a fresh new hell for you to experience as more of your muscles are exposed to air.

The Namekian continues to flay you alive for a decent amount of time, specifically until he scratched you a hundred times over. When he's done Pirina takes a step back with his claws stained red from your blood and asks this.
"Are you okay?"

You just crack a vicious smile and reply.
"Got another one in ya?"

"Heh...
You know when I felt that your skin is not as tough as ours I thought about holding back...
But it seems like you handled it well. Very well! You pass! Now come, we'll get one of the dragon clan to heal you up."
>>

>>3283088
We haven't seen their tests but yeah U6 has the stronger champions. At least for now until they spit out everyone that fused after that who knows?
>>
>>3283095
Don't count the pickle monster as their champion as he spends all his time on earth.
>>
Don't Namekians subsist only on water?
This race is our worst nightmare.
Iirc Freeza's bunch only eat shellfish and wine.
>>
Back at the village one of the Namekian children heals you by laying his hand over your wounds while Pirina gets you your two star dragon ball. Afterwards you get a bit of a history lesson from the Namekians.

"In ancient times our people practiced this ritualistic blood letting to harden our skin until Namekian claws were no match for them. Obviously we grew out of those times and became more sophisticated.
But the ritual persists both to remind us of the past and to make sure those who have access to the Dragon Balls are no strangers to pain and suffering."

"How barbaric."
Kamin observes.

"We have similar things where I come from."
You respond.
"We have something similar with beatings and lashings but also more creative stuff like rubbing boiling oil on our skin.
I think every warrior culture has at least some ritual like this."

"But now that you're done-"
Pirina continues.
"You should seek out my battle brother Saonel.
He's the other strongest son of Namek."

"Oh goodie! I can't wait for another lashing!"

"Worry not.
You're through the worst of it.
Just don't think this means they won't be difficult..."

The next village Pirina pointed you to happens to be on the other side of the planet.
Makes sense, if he's the other guy who's supposed to "give birth" to the rest of their species they'd need to spread out as much as possible. But when you arrive he's already waiting for you.

"Finally, you're here.
Pirina sure took his time!"

"Well hello to you as well."

"I don't have all day so hurry along!
Your test will be a fight with me! It's that simple."

"Fighting the strongest of your kind?
Sounds fair..."

"Don't cry about it!
It's supposed to be a challenge, not some fun little activity anyone can participate in!
But to make it a bit more fair on you, you don't actually have to beat me. We'll have an arena and you may win via knockout or forcing your opponent to the ground. Flying is not allowed! Any questions?!"

"No."

"Good!"

Saonel then lead you to a circular little arena in the middle of the settlement itself.
Cracking his neck he prepares himself to face you.

>This arena looks small. Better not get too crazy and just wrestle him into submission
>If it's a knockout he wants then that's what he gets! (sucker punch him with time-skip)
>Go all out. Let's see how he likes that
>Other?

>>3283129
>Go all out. Let's see how he likes that

>>3283129
>Go all out. Let's see how he likes that
He doesn't know us, so we can get a surprise ring out early if we time it right. Just wait till he charges, give him a boost with our telekinesis and then watch him overshoot out of the ring

THE CLUTCH!
>>
Hey Not Som, I don't think you ever answered last thread, but after the Kale fight where would you rank our PL right now?
>>
>>3283256
We could beat first form Freeza, apparently.
>>
>>3283256
I think he said we could take on first form frieza evenly IIRC.
>>
Guys now that the strongest sons are taken care off (supposedly might be multi roll fight) how about we let ice man take the first crack at challenges?
>>
>>3283260
>>3283259
Did he mean, like, current first form Freeza? Because we've gotta be, like, leagues stronger then Namek Saga first form Freeza, right?
>>
>>3283267
Original first form, I doubt we just skipped straight to demon king/cell levels from one fight
>>
>>3283272
We just put up a good fight against Kale, even though she did that "Oozaru without actually going Oozaru thing". Even without Super Saiyan, she's gotta be much stronger then any of Freeza's forms except Final during the Namek saga, right? Probably way stronger then base Goku's 3 mil, as well.
>>
>>3283272
We did however get 10x more powerful since our last recorded PL when we were measured as first form Freeza level.
UNLIMITED POTENTIAL.
>>
>>3283295
Wait wait wait. Do you think any of the Namekian Elders here could do Guru's 'Unlock Hidden Potential' thing?
>>
>>3283304
Yeah maybe
>>
>>3283289
Our powerset helps us fight way over our league, which is part of what makes Eric so impressive and Kale was adjusting to her power as the fight was going along. It was a matter of skill and ability beating out raw power and sloppy rage. Just because we lasted, not won mind you LASTED, for a good while in a spar does not automatically mean our number got 1000x bigger. That's the exact opppsite of the point of that.
>>
>>3283304
I com0letely forgot about bringing this up, thank you anon
>>
>>3283289
Depends if she fully recovered from that ki sickness that she had.

The fact that she can go SSJ is an encouraging sign, but she may still be a ways off from where she was in the ToP.
>>
>>3283319
Also we aren't a Saiyan. So no Zenkai for getting our shit pushed in.
>>
>>3283327
Instead we follow the example of Goku Black and just get stronger and develop new techniques in the middle of fights because "fuck you now I have the upper hand".
>>
>>3283304
Possibly, yeah, though at our level the strength gain would probably be pretty negligible, unless it scales.

>>3283319
I didn't say we were as strong as Kale at all, or that we won the fight, but I'd think the fact that we fought her on relatively even terms for a while and didn't get our shit stomped puts us higher up the pecking order then Namek Saga first form Freeza, who she's much stronger than.
>>
>>3283346
To be fair that was fairly common in DB, when it was purely a martial arts comedy. Tien basically got nerfed in Z.
>>3283348
And I'm saying you're heavily overestimating Eric's powerboost, not to mention QM confirmed last thread Eric is still only the third strongest human around.
>>
>>3283348
In all honesty making the jump from guldo to first form Frieza is high enough for me
>>
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NHankFNxrWI

You aren't really about holding back. Never were.
So if this guy wants a fight he's about to get one!

Raising your arms you announce your intentions to your opponent.
"This is the stance!"

"H-Huh?"

"In which I'll beat you!"

Disappearing from sight you use your speed and nigh untraceable ki to your advantage. Using your time-skip you get close to Saonel and let him have a barrage of punches, each of which sends a shockwave into his body.
His entire being is shaking and vibrating from your attack.
"W-Wha-"

"This is the end!"

Pulling your fist back you start twisting space around your knuckles until it becomes a whirling spiral and thrust the entire thing into Saonels body. Your knuckles strike his thick skin hard, hard enough for you to push your fist into his gut.
But the real impact of the attack comes when the compacted packet of space unwhirls and sends him flying backwards with a great twist.

Rolling backwards out of the ring he looks up at you in shock as you rub your nose in a cocky manner.
"Did I overdo it?"

"W-What in the blazes was that?!"
He demands angrily but eventually calms down and lets out a hearty chuckle.
"Hahahahaha! That I did not expect!
I was gonna match your power output until you realized it to teach you about restraint!
But this! I guess you don't need a lesson in that if you managed to hide that power this well!"
Saonel then walks over to an inconspicuous patch of grass and digs out the three star dragon ball from underneath.
"Here. You earned it. Unconventionally maybe. But you earned it!"
>>
>>3283359
>I was gonna match your power output until you realized it to teach you about restraint!
Right, so, do NOT tell him that we're actually that weak and just really good at punching above our weight class. Got it.
>>
>>3283355
Yeah, because Tien and Krillin, despite being much weaker then Goku and Vegeta and them, are still strong as fuck, compared with the rest of the universe. Krillin is apparently nearly as strong as 18, who could kick the shit out of a Super Saiyan and has probably gotten at least somewhat stronger since, and Tien was able to restrain Semi-Perfect Cell, who could easily beat the stuffing out of the aforementioned Super Saiyan beating Android, and was later able to deflect a planet busting attack from one of what was probably one of the strongest iterations of Buu. Obviously they're both stronger then us, but that doesn't make us weak.
>>
>>3283379
>Tien and Krillin
Not even Tien and Roshi.

What a ningen!
>>
>>3283379
>and Krillin
Who said anything about that loser?
Clearly they meant Tien and Roshi.
>>3283376
Or, we do and we see if we can get a power unlock from the Grand Elder.
>>
>>3283384
Oh right, Roshi somehow got super strong. Well whatever, he's apparently absurdly strong now as well, so my point still stands.
>>
I got to ask Not-Som. Is full on Ultra Instinct Master Roshi our Final Boss? Because I would be 10000% okay with that.
>>
>>3283379
....ok so first off you're trying to argue that we're as strong as current first form frieza, who was strong enough to freak out krillin, tien, and piccolo, all guys stronger than eric. Second off we were barely as comparable to guldo prefight and you're trying to argue that one fight shot us up past perfect cell. That's insane. Third, where the fuck did you get krillin being nearly as strong as 18? From that one spar? They were TRAINING, of course she wasn't going full force on him. Jesus dude
>>
>>3283384
You know what's up! Good to see you not putting Krilln on a pedestal the guy let himself go hard after Buu I doubt that bit in the forest was enough to offset years of laziness.

What do you mean after Buu?
Pretty sure the last time he trained was when they were prepping for 19 and Gero.
And even then I doubt he made too many gains.

Truth is the bitch got lazy after his Potential Unlock
>>
>>3283379
>Krillin is apparently nearly as strong as 18
She's leagues ahead of him, don't know where you heard otherwise. The peak of Krillin's strength is cheapshotting people after a Solar Flare x100
>>
>>3283400
I want our Ki to not be worthless, we've been neglecting it ever since we unlocked it.
>>
>>3283409
Sure, but be sensible about getting there at least!. Besides, ki is secondary, we can beef it up when we have the time.
>>
>>3283409
It's a moot point either way, Eric doesn't know potential power unlocking is a thing namekians can do. I'm kind of hoping we impress the namekians enough that their elder offers it after meeting with us post wish.
>>
>>3283406
>Krillins special move is literally a move he jacked from Tien but he made it bigger
You'd think burning your opponents retina's out and blinding them would be considered a shameful last resort but whatever.
Remember the "no items" clause at the ToP, asshole Krillin broke that too.
>>
>>3283394
>From that one spar? They were TRAINING, of course she wasn't going full force on him. Jesus dude

Ah fuck, I went and rechecked some dialogue from Resurrection F and apparently I misremembered it. Though apparently he was talking about Roshi and Tien anyways as the strongest humans, so Krillin doesn't really enter into it.
>>
>>3283426
He did?

also roshi did too cause of his jars
>>
>>3283396
Ymw you realize roshi's gonna be hunting us down if we do another tournanent cause we have special abilities
>>
>>3283437
So did Caulifla and Kale.
But Zeno is a shit when it comes to rules
>>
>>3283409
Here we have Eric, is stopping time, folding space. And generally making physics his bitch. And you want to make us into normal ki user. I'm not mad Anon, I'm just disappointed.
>>
>>3283426
>Remember that one move I jacked from that one chinese dude that's basically a flashbang? Well I made it bigger! Plot twist!
God late db moves are boring. As underutilized as most of the ToP fighters were, at least a bunch of them had a creative move or two.
>>
>>3283450
I mean, even Hit-Senpai is a increadibly skilled Ki user, so I can't blame anon for wanting to practice that side of our power more.
>>
>>3283450
I want us to get a better base for when we face an opponent that can counter our physics fuckery.
We literslly brought two such people along with us to Namek.
>>
The Tournament of Power rules were so fucking stupid
No killing was silly and conveniently doesn't matter if you kill them with their own attack.
No items was ignored. (Glasses, Mafuba, Krillin's shoe, Potara, Paparoni's staff, Katopesla's armour)
No outside interference was ignored (Spirit Bomb + U2 love garbage powerup)
What a fucking mess.

As you carry the third ball back to the rest the two Tuffles look at you with starry eyes.
"That was cool!"
Kamin says.

"How much more are you hiding?"
Oren asks.

"Hmmm? Hiding?
I came up with that now."
They seem befuddled by this.
"Yes. You can better yourselves. Even in combat."

After blowing their mind with that little tidbit you made your way to the next village and found the Namekians there already waiting for you. Seems like news travels on a planet where nothing ever happens. Especially since apparently you are the first people in quite a while to have gathered more than two Dragon Balls.
The locals lead you to perhaps the oldest looking Namekian on the entire planet.

"Please... be very patient with the grand elder.
He's very old."

"I understand."
Stepping in you introduce yourself.
"Greetings I'm-"

"I've heard of who you are.
Son of Earth. Welcome to our planet.
I am the grand elder of our Namek. I am the keeper of the dragon balls.
It saddens me that you found us in such a state. Our planet in shambles, our people recovering from our own great trial.
But... at the very least we can offer you yours."

"You talk about the Tournament of Power, right?"

"Indeed...
Most of our able bodied sons volunteered to merge for the sake of our universe.
And now we try our best as always, to heal, to regrow. But sadly this means we don't have enough villages to split our dragon balls... so you'll have to do two trials... one... after another.
Or... would you like to... speed it up? Kids these days... are in... such a... hurry..."

"Erm-"

"But I... warn... you.
It... would be... really... reckless..."

>I'll do one after another
>Both at the same time!

"I'm many things Elder.
Cocky, driven, foolhardy! Yes.
But I'm not an idiot. I don't presume to be able to complete two trials at once.
However I have a friend outside, you may have heard of him. He's the one I'm collecting these for.
He can do the one."

"I see...
Neeeeeeey!"

A rather strong looking Namekian enters the chamber.
"Yes lord guru?"

"The offworlder outside.
Give him the trial of heart.
And seal the chamber."

"You mean sir-"

"Yes.
We must perform the trial of spirit.
Now please, go."

The bodyguard of the elder bows and as his lord and master instructed locks the door behind you.
With no windows or any other openings present, you are stuck with the large green man.
"I'm starting to regret my decision!"

"Calm down son of Earth. Now's not the time for fear.
That comes later."

"D-Did you read my mind?"

"I may have..."
He then points to some sort of pedestal next to his throne.
"Please... light the fire under the brazier."

Doing as you're told you kindle the flame under the ceremonial piece of furniture and watch as the charcoal within begins to heat up. Once the room starts to heat up the guru continues with his instructions.
"Now... take some water from that bucket and pour it over the rocks."

"So... just like a sauna."

"Yes.
But there is no need for you to strip.
It won't get that hot. But you might want to take a seat."

"Why-hy-hy-hy-hyyyyyyy~"
As soon as you pour the water on the rocks and catch a whiff of the escaping fumes you feel... dizzy.
Looking down into the bucket you see several strange leaves floating around in the water.
Your voice starts to distort and stretch.
"Fuuuuuuuuuck~"

Your legs give out and you fall unceremoniously on your ass as Guru rambles on.
"I do enjoy these sessions.
It does wonders for the joints."

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MKp30C3MwVk

You however hardly hear any of it as you start to experience the taste of sound with your eyeballs.
Thinking back on it, while you still can, you should've packed your bags. Because it looks like you're going on a trip.
In your heightened state of awareness you get to experience the entire heat death of the universe, subsequent rebirth, development into an exact replica of yours only to watch it die again.

The walls melt, your memories melt together with reality to create a trippy hellscape before you are suddenly yanked back into the same, bland looking Namekian house in the middle of a backwater planet.
Next to you stands Guru who is silently judging you, waiting to see your reaction.

You want to ask him something but as you open your mouth he points forward in order to alert you to something.
Sitting in front of you is an exact replica...
Well, not exactly.

The entity in front of you may resemble you but the details are all wrong, distorted, unnatural, lending him an uncanny valley feeling. Especially when he moves around, causing his body to shift and distort slightly.
He looks into you with his vacant eyes and speaks in a rhaspy, echoey voice.

"Why are you here?"
You try to open your mouth to answer but you can't. He won't let you.
"You remember that, right? A dead planet inhabited by those who don't realize they shouldn't live.
Aliens that could kill you with a blink if you did one wrong move. And ohhhh sooo many more horrors you can't even begin to imagine them all! But... look who I'm telling this to. You already know!
So why? Why do you pretend like you... matter? Here you are uncountable lightyears away from home, playing hero, a dashing rogue sailing through the galaxy, having adventures!
But we both know the truth... don't we?
You are just human... no. You are just a failure. A delivery boy, a reject, a dropout."
He stands up and looks down on you.

"You left that piece of dirt because you were nothing back there... and hoped you'd be less of a disappointment elsewhere.
But deep down you know you're on borrowed time. Sooner or later your lucky streak will end. And you'll die.
So why go on?"

Of course the lucky streak will end and I might even die. But we both know death isn't the end, and hell I might make a few friends willing to do what I'm doing for Hyssop, for me.

You look up at the figure.
"Of course I know that the lucky streak will end and I'll die. But news flash! Everyone dies!
Either in a ditch with a hole in our head and a missing wallet, or in a blaze of glory fighting for the well-being of my friends, or for innocent people across the universe.
But we both know death isn't the end, and hell I might make a few friends willing to do what I'm doing for Hyssop, for me.
Until then though, I get to explore the universe. I get to make a different. I get to have the adventure every single human has desired since man looked up at the stars and silently wished he could fuck them."

You stand up to meet the figure eye to eye and clench your fist.
"So why do I do it?
BECAUSE I CARE!"

The figure pauses... then chuckles.
"As you wish. Care then.
Make your friends, have your experiences, enjoy the world while you can.
It'll only hurt more when you loose it all. But you know that already. After all, you're me!"

With that the shadowy being fades back into nothingness, where it came from.
And you are left standing there, alone.
"Douche..."

The atmosphere then clears and you find yourself back with Lord Guru.
"You've done well, son of man.
Though I must admit... that bit about intercourse was highly inappropriate."

"Eh... but it was honest.
Does that count for anything?"

"I suppose it does."
He reaches above his chair and hands you the Dragon Ball affixed to it.
"Go on. Take it.
And remember: The brightest light casts the darkest shadow.
But it's in the greatest darkness where light shines brightest."

You look upon the orb and gaze into its star before looking back up to him.
"Do you have a shadow as well lord guru?"

"Of course.
We all do. I could rid myself of it.
But what is greater? Being inherently good or overcoming the evil inside?
Your doubts, your fears, they are a part of you. They make you who you are."

The entrance unlocks and you manage to take your first breath of fresh air in... who knows how long.
The others are naturally there to greet you.

"Eric! You made it!
You were in there for so long we thought-"

"Yes Hyssop... I got it.
By the way how long was I in there?"

"Three hours."
Vados answers you.

"WHAT?!"

"Yes. I completed my trial as well.
I had to climb a mountain without flying, grab a bucket of water and bring it back.
But it turns out there was a small, thirsty Namekian waiting for me at the bottom.
Turns out he was part of the trial and I passed by giving him a drink.
I was really pissed too because by that point I climbed the thing three times already..."

"Well...
I guess only two more left."
>>
>>3283741
Hey, that doesn't count.
Nukes are cheating.
>>
Aaaaand that's as far as I can go for today.
I don't like ending on a cliffhanger, especially with my two day break coming. But I don't have what it takes to do the last two trials.

So sadly you'll just have to be patient until I return.
Anyways, I hope you had fun as always.

She's probably going to be mad guys, when we get back we're probably gonna have to be aware of surprise dropkicks.

>>3283851
Why do I get the terrible feeling she's going to go super during the fight and continue the fight as a curbstomp on us as payback for beating her?
>>
>>3283860
Just think of it as saiyan courting. Won't make the ass kicking we're gonna get hurt any less though. But hey that's saiyan courting for ya.
>>
>>3283932
I think for Caulifla right now she sees it as less courting and more "this guy is like a punching bag that powers you up and does other unexpected shit".
I wonder if Caulifla's tail will grow back (also if it does she'll have the old tail grab pacifying weakspot unless she trains it) it's not like it's a problem in places without common full moons or if she learns to control the transformation.
Also I just realised that Oozaru Kale would probably be able to hold off on going full rampage mode better than Caulifla due to her experience with Wrath mode probably transferring over to monkey madness.
Golden Oozaru and Super Saiyan 4 are cool concepts, fite me.

I must say, I'm quite surprised by our disposition towards the twins.
Everybody sees them as "our kids" while they most likely don't view as a parent.

Nobody wants to fug them? Really?
Son I'm dissapoint.

Its obviously our destiny to dick everything in this universe!

Could also probably become a planetary guardian.
In Xenoverse 2 Zamasu does mention he could make you the new Supreme Kai of Time because Chronoa is worthless.
Alternatively there's always the "become a God of Destruction" route.
>>
>>3285270
I wouldn't say no to becoming Guardian of Earth in the far future, after exploring the universe to our heart's content and sating our budding Xenophilia.
>>
>>3285278
Who'd want to be guardian of that bunch of plebs?
Let's just do a Goku and keep training.
Kaioken x 1000 or bust.
I'd also like to get magic so we can heal ourselves after exploding all of our organs pulling that off.
>>
>>3285297
I do want to extend our lifespan somehow, to keep exploring and having adventures to our hearts content, until the day ennui truly sets in and we're ready to move on.

And magic can probably help with that, along with helping us make a better Kaioken/Super mode from mixing our Ki and Psychic energies!
>>
>>3285308
I mean, it's likely the Tuffles are biologically immortal.
Also Vados and Champa are millions of years old already.
The trap is that true immortality kind of puts you in stasis and prevents you from raising your strength.

Chronoa is one person we could train for that, finishing up Hit's training would also add centuries. Remember the guy is really old, time control has a ton of benefits as far as the body is concerned.

Roshi just eats a magical herb that gives him like a thousand extra years to live every time he eats it.
What the fuck.
That's bullshit.

I don't know if that's just a gag now as of DBZ, but in the original Dragonball it was stated by turtle that he apparently ingested some sort of immortality elixir that granted him eternal life.

You wish to get intimate with with a filthy gender swapped Zamasu instead of monkey waifus or angel waifu. I look down on you Anon.

I'm joking anyway.
Kefla best girl.
Speaking of I just realised that Kefla probably could've gone Super Saiyan 3 in the ToP on the same logic Gotenks could do it by witnessing Goku go SS3.
Problem was she got too fucking angry and you can't force 3 by getting angry.
She could probably have beaten UI Goku if she didn't go full on rage mode and tried to go 3.
>>
Eh, Fem Zamasu is a great waifu, so I'd be happy with her. The other waifus are all top tier but Zamasu's reactions to a Filthy Ningen stealing her heart and making her go Doki Doki seal the deal for me.
>>
>>3285330
>The trap is that true immortality kind of puts you in stasis and prevents you from raising your strength.
[Citation needed]
>>
>>3286630
Sort of implied by Black not also wishing for immortality as he says some shit about strength and how it would hinder them.
Not like Zamasu had any intention for fair play so that's not the reason he seemingly nerfed himself.

I seriously hope you don't do this!

>>3286653
Let's put it this way.
You wish for perfect immortality.
You then workout at a gym for /gains/
Your gains are invalidated as your body simply returns to the way it was before when you originally made the wish.
>>
>>3286664
Sounds imperfect to me, bro.
Immortality is in no way relevant to that. It just seems like a weird idea that you personally have.
All that it means to be immortal is that you cannot die.
>>
>>3286677
Immortality in DB always comes with a super quick regenerative healing factor.
Which would work against you.

Actually the super regeneration immortality doesn't stop increase in growth. Remember how garlic Jr. came back after the Frieza saga and was actually formidable
>>
>>3286736
No longer cannon.t4star memed this episode so it didnt happen
>>
>>3286705
Immortality in this case isn't just the inability to die.
It's an undying, unaging body that always returns to it's original state if damaged or changed.
This means that you don't "heal quick" it's more as if the damage itself is reverted.
>>
>>3286736
Ah yes, Garlic Jr, the worst movie villain with the worst filler arc.
"I'm immortal so here's my special attack, it's the only thing that can stop me."
>>
>>3286748
That's a mighty big assumption to make there, bucko.
>>
>>3286771
Not really.
There's a reason they decided the only way to stop Zamasu was sealing with a very difficult to pull off technique and not say, bringing Buu along to chocolate beam him.
It's up to QM how he wants to do immortality but it's a nice possible drawback for it to have.
>>
>>3286761
Yes he's the worst villain but that doesn't disprove how immortality works
>>
>>3286827
Him being non canon however does.
Just like how Goku can't use False Super Saiyan or Kaioken x100
>>
>>3286790
Non canon isn't an argument in a quest that has heroes content
>>
>>3286835
It is when you're using non canon story elements that have since been retconned by canon.
Tell me why Black didn't wish for immortality.
If we include all Non Canon content then Yamcha is Super Saiyan 2 tier and Goku can use kaioken with normal super saiyan and can also use Kaioken x100.
>>
>>3286851
>Tell me why Black didn't wish for immortality.

I thought It was some autistic idealism about not wanting to give a mortal body Immortality, despite needing that power to pull off his plan In the first place. I didn't really pay attention during that whole arc though, so I'm probably wrong.

Black didn't wish for immortality because he wanted to grow by his own merit. Goku's body had that effect on him - it started giving him saiyan-like personality traits, such as a lust for battle and a desire to grow stronger without using supremely bullshit shortcuts like immortality.

And non-canon still isn't an argument, since things like pic related are also heroes content.
Trying to apply your own strict 'canon' onto a quest is going full goku-tier retarded. You NEVER go full retarded.
>>
>>3286860
He brings up strength and shit during his tea party.
Also that argument falls apart when you remember fusion was a plan they intended on using from the start.
>>
>>3286864
QM is using SOME heroes content in places where it makes sense.
I'm not enforcing my own strict canon, I just think it would be better if there's some drawback to cheat power #1.
Again as I said, it's up to QM.
>>
>>3286851
You can't just say everything is wrong unless Canon in a quest that the qm hasn't given his verdict in. And using ridicules things to justify your side isn't fair.

Heck if we wanna go down this shitfest then in quest using Canon we should be able to make Frieza go into a rage by mentioning his height.
Or cripple haku's fighting power by making him hungry.
Or be able to put buu out of commission by putting him to sleep.

Fuck there hasn't been proof of immortality being a time reminder, or that you can't wish for another type of immortality.

In the end neither I not you are the qm, so just let him decide and don't just come up with a hypothesis of how it works and think that we all have to abide by it.
>>
>>3286879
>QM is using SOME non-canon content, but this other non-canon stuff totally can't fly man, nah, that's non-canon for sure dude

And the drawback is that you can't die, even if you want to.
One gorillion years of imprisonment in a shitty place is what you get if you fuck up hard enough with immortality.
A wish is a wish, man. It's meant to be powerful. And for what it's worth, Zamasu's immortality was from the SUPER dragonballs. It's probably not gonna be as bullshit with a lesser set.
>>
>>3286885
QM originally said something to that effect.
Stop getting so upset and stop acting like you can't just add the caveat "until I no longer wish to live" onto a wish of immortality.
Don't assume all non canon content is canon unless QM specifies it is, they are clearly going to pick and choose what they want to include otherwise there are two god damn Brolys.

Anyway. I definitely think we should use a wish to make Kefla her own person. She is best girl and I will throw hands with anyone who disagrees.
>>
>>3288541
I guess we could try if we get a wish.
I get the feeling the dragon will tell us "fuck off I'm not strong enough" if we do though.
Fucking Shenron can't even turn the androids back into humans, or rebuild 16.
Asking Porunga to make a perfect clone of the most powerful mortal in this universe. (and effectively two souls pulled from the aether) is a little optimistic.
We'll need the Super Dragon Balls for our goal.
Or we just learn a way to extend fusion time.
Time is our field of expertise after all and Chronoa can do it.
>>
>>3288546
I had forgotten about Porunga/Shenrons wish limitations, looks like Super Shenrons our best bet. We just need to get our hands on the Super Dragon Balls. Shouldn't be too hard, right?
>>
>>3288564
Anon it's going to be fucking nightmarish to get them all.
We'll need a solid plan to gather them.
An even more solid plan to gather them without anyone noticing.
1) We'll need to locate them so we need to get a Super Dragon Ball Radar from U7, we'll also need a way to quickly travel between the universes
2) We'll need to be able to transport planet sized objects across the multiverse
3) We'll need to learn the language of the gods
We also don't really want any GoDs finding out about what we're up to. Which means we'll need to do it as rapidly as Zamasu.
Even then Zamasu killed the early warning system first. (Gowasu would've notified Rumush and other GoDs, but by killing Gowasu he dealt with Rumush too, then he got the locations of the balls from the omniscient guy and could probably Kai Kai with them to one location, he also knows the gods language on account of being a god)
And Zamasu has all the powers of a powerful Kaioshin despite his status as an apprentice.
Zamasu made it look easy but the asshole was playing a perfect hand in a stacked deck.
He even had the time ring so he could make as many wishes as he pleased with no waiting period.
>>
>>3288577
Eric has the superpower of common sense, he'll figure out that the language of the gods is "[dub language here] but backwards" just by hearing it once
>>
>>3288594
Possibly.
It's also possible that Toei only used backwards speak because they are notoriously lazy and it also allows the reader/watcher to understand the wishes somewhat.
Who knows?
Seems like an awfully weak safeguard if that's actually the case though.
>>
>>3288609
I know, right? They should have at LEAST gone for pig-latin
>>
>>3288613
Does Japanese have a pig-latin equivalent?
Anyway it might be a bit too meta if we just yell "what the fuck that's just backwards speak!" When many other characters heard it being spoken (including Bulma, who makes us look like a chimp intellectually) and didn't say anything
Divine Language might actually be some super difficult language in universe and the drawkcab speak was just for the viewer.
At least it should be imo.
>>
>>3288618
Actually doesn't Beerus or somebody mention there's no word for "Easy-Peasy?"
If it was truly backward speak it would just be "Ysae-Ysaep" right?
>>
>>3288618
I'm sure we can find someone who'll teach us the language. Maybe Vados would be up for it?
>>
>>3288618
Bulma is intelligent, but even she falls for the forced retardation that Toei demands.
She can make a time machine, but let's be real, sometimes she's REALLY dumb in the way of common sense. And she sometimes gets blinded by innate bitchness, I guess.
>>
>>3288618
I personally think it'd be funny as shit if we called out Vados the second she started using the "Divine" Language.
>>
>>3288635
What if you only hear divine language properly if you've got god ki?
It gives an explanation as to why the smart characters didn't pick up on it.
And Goku and Vegeta aren't that bright when it comes to things like that.
Alternatively the cast is full of fucking retards.
>>
This is the reason why do quests die. The second someone mentions dragonballs, Anons get lazy and try to munchkin. We already have to tools to live a long life (timeskip, apprenticeship to Vados) yet so many are like naw hard work is boring Dragonball me.
Of course if this is for Kefla... Yeah nevermind super dragonballs here we go.
>>
I'm back... phew.
8 hours of working outdoors from 4AM in freezing temperature is not nice... not at all

Anyway, holy shit what a shitstorm.
I hope it's over.

Also I'll most likely will be able to continue tomorrow. Just wanted to notify y'all

Never this is only the beginning

>>
>>3288778
There's only one force in the universe greater than the Munchkin.
Waifufaggotry.
>>
>>3288541
We probably shouldn’t rush into that - at the very least we should maybe talk to Caulifla and Kale about their experiences as Kefla first, try and suds out how they’d feel being around an idealized version of their combined strengths. There’s also the possibility of unintended consequences popping up, like perhaps the universe decides that because we’ve already plucked Kefla from oblivion, the girls can’t fuse into her when they really need her, which would be especially bad if we somehow ended up with an unpowered version due to wish-granting limitations.
>>
Why do you guys want to spend so much effort and sacrifice into creating a top tier waifu when we alredy have one that shows interest on Eric (and could make him immortal and train him util he reaches Zen Oh level of bullshit)

Hell she might be billions of years old.

But sometimes.

>>
>>3289409
Because, and this is just my own personal opinion here, but I'd vote for it because Eric CARES about people.

He cares about the trouble his roommate back on Earth went through with is sudden disappearance.

He cares about the people on the run from Universe 9, who only wanted live peaceful lives, without having to worry about being killed by every other being in their universe.

He cares about Hyssops family, who more then likely were murdered for no reason, and how that's hurt Hyssop.

He cares about the Truffles, who turned themselves into monsters, to such a degree he literally mutilated his mind/soul to give them a piece of his Humanity, in the hopes they would become good people one day.

He cares about the kids, since he took them from Planet Plant, so they could live their own lives however they want, without being forced into being the Truffles weapons of vengeance.

And, Eric cares about Kelfa, because he knows the pain of dying, he knows the feeling of ceasing to exist utterly, and he knows Kelfa doesn't deserve that. If she was JUST dying at the end of the Potara Fusion, he probably wouldn't mind as much, he knows the Afterlife is pretty nice after all...but she doesn't.

She disappears, turns into nothing, she comes into existence for an hour, to fight foes nobody else could to try and pull of A Big Damn Hero's moment and save everyone....and the entire time she's fighting, she knows that even if she wins, she's still going to cease to exist.

Before she met Eric, she had never eaten, or drank, she had never laughed in amusement, or played any sort of game. She thanked him, from the bottom of her heart, for letting her experience what LIFE is like, since she never thought she would be able to.

Eric cares about people, and he KNOWS Kelfa deserves something besides a once in a blue moon hour to exist, before becoming NOTHING again.
>>
>>3289638
When you put it that way we do appear to be one of the nicest people in the entire god damn Multiverse.
We're definitely keeping our body if we die.
>>
>>3289666
If satan says so it must be true.
>>
>>3289638

Now that you put it like this it kinda makes sense why every SINGLE fusion is an arrogant, flashy prick.
If that half/one hour is all they get then might as well make the most of it and leave an impression
>>
I want waifufags to fuck off.
You can sugarcoat it all you want but you only care about it because muh saiyan waifu.
>>
>>3290155
If you want to reduce everything to incredibly basic single-part concepts just so you can feel better about other people having different goals than you, then be my guest.
Doesn't change the fact that many people actually do have multiple complex and varied reasons for why they want to do it.
>>
>>3290155
I want you to fuck off.
If it's a choice between powerlevelfaggotry and waifufaggotry I choose the waifufaggotry every time.
Besides, Eric's response to Kefla's physical features was by far the most positive of any character we've seen.
Also he legitimately felt kind of like shit after she revealed the whole ceasing to exist thing.
Enough that he was asking Vados about how the universe was brought back.
Eric has a crush on Kefla.
>>
>>3290155
>>I make a logical post on why Eric would wish Kelfa to be her own independent being, backed on his own past actions, and IC thoughts.

>>Shut up you waifufag

Lol. You do you anon. You do you.
>>
>>3290155
Oh, and because I forgot to add it, I really don't care if Kelfa becomes a Waifu or not.

She could hook up with Cabba, or one of the Sayian Princesses, and I would wish her well.

I'd be fine having her as this really cool friend/big sister figure.

So...yeah. You do you.
>>
Let me ask you a question: would you spend a wish from the super dragon balls to make Vegito or Gogeta independent?
The answer is no, because they aren't hot chicks. Stop trying to "subtly" impose your waifu or we're going to end up with a harem.
>>
>>3290224
But I would. Don't try to answer for me when you're just outright wrong.
>>
>>3290155
>>3290224
Stop being a condescending shitstains, the antiwaifu spergs are just as bad as waifufags. NO ONE needs to hear your ceaseless shitting, people are perfectly capable of making decisions. Vote and make arguments, if you lose eat it up like decent players.
>>
>>3290224
Yeah I would, Vegito and Gogeta are cool as fuck.
>>
>>3290224
I don't know about Gogeta, because I don't know if he counts as his own independent soul or not, Fusion Dance Mechanics aren't really known at all, but yeah I would for Vegito.
>>
>>3290224
>implying vegito isn't the secret true waifu path
>>
>>3290240
I'd probably say that fusion dance wouldn't, the manipulation of the soul seems like something that would be limited to gods.
Also it seems like Potara fusions inherently know their names while Gogeta has to think up a cool sounding name.

Of course I would, you dumb bitch. Making them their own person is something I'd totally be down to do. We just have to meet them first.
>>
Yea we had that conversation before. Besides it being a meme that people made to waifu neither the resulting fusion or the people fusing cared about it. While we had a bit of emotion in character doesn't mean it actually should be done. Sometimes things you don't like are actually fine as they are.
>>
>>3292690
That’s your opinion and we’ll respect it so long as you respect our disagreement.
>>
>>3292725
I'm with him. There's no need for it and its too much trouble going on super dragon ball hunt. also thank you for the respect.
>>
>>3292756
What would you use a wish on the Super Dragon balls for then?
Kefla will get her chance dammit.
Although it's probably easier for everyone if we just gain the ability to alter fusion time.
>>
>>3292883
Don't know we don't really have a good reason for getting them as of now. I don't think making Kefla fusion clone would count as good enough a reason and if we are sent to get them we likely have a bigger problem than waifu being on hour long time limit.
>>
>>3292901
Besides there's another side of that people haven't thought about. If we get the wish will the fusion still exist? If yes nothing has changed and there's still a version of her that ceases to exist after an hour but you have your waifu at least yay! Or they get a Vegito equivalent now in which case still has a problem of a person disappearing after times up. Or they are unable to fuse now in which case well done they don't have their ace now and Kefla being a person and all might not be there to save them.
>>
>>3292956
I meant Gogeta equivalent. Deep.
>>
Imma say this right now, as much as Caulifla/Kale/Kefla is muh QuestWaifus, right now I will fight any attempt at a "make Kefla her own person" wish.

In-universe we're somewhat enamored with/feel sorry for her situation, but we've also only known her for about an hour. That's no basis for that kind of wish, and it's most definitely not the kind of thing that shoudl be done without having a long, difficult talk with Caulifla/Kale/Kefla beforehand, because it's their lives we'd be fucking with.

TLDR: I appreciate everyone's Waifu enthusiasm, but please stop thinking solely with your dicks, the shitposting is starting to feel caustic and negative, and I'd really like it us anons could stop being assholes for a little bit.
>>
>>3293029
We're not gonna make any wish like that any time soon, it's a Super Dragon Ball deal and thus is sufficiently end game.
Took Champa decades to locate them by searching normally.
By the time we're in a position to make the wish we'll have met Kefla a few more times.
>>
>>3293060
And yet people bring it up all the time. Honestly, I'm getting tired of this topic but it gets brought up all the time like their obsessed with it.
>>
>>3293029
Maybe if people exactly like you stopped reducing the situation to mere waifuism, others wouldn't get mad.
Unfortunately, most of you retards keep doing exactly that despite explanations that our reasoning is much deeper than that and not limited to kefla.
Only >>3292956 this post has addressed an actually important issue in the plan.

Regarding that, by the way, its hard to say how it would work until its tried. Just speculation. That being said, i could see one possibility being that if they fuse, it might teleport the fusion here and add their power to it. Alternatively, they might be unable to use that fusion any more. Or maybe they can but only with permission? Like i said, just speculation. Could ask vados, maybe its been done once before somewhere?
>>
>>3293070
They're just having fun, though it shouldn't really be our in character plan yet, which is why it didn't win the wish vote.
It will probably be eventually but only if we can get Kefla to admit to wanting to actually live.
>>
>>3293095
>They're just having fun
And the shitposting is starting to feel incredibly acidic & confrontational instead of fun to me, and likely many others. I think it all needs to be dropped until we at least finish the next session.

As I see it the Keflafags were having fun shitposting until some numbskull got butthurt over "waifufagging" and started screeching.

I don't care who you waifu or if you waifu at all.
But it's very clear to see that one side was just having fun and then someone decided that "They shouldn't like what I like".

So how about this?
Instead of screeching at the waifufags and creating a scene how about you provide some other, more thoughtful topic instead of promoting a lesser type of dialogue?
>>
>>3293156

The structure of the thread allows that.

>>3293207
True.
But there were parties that raised good points, one being you with that topic about the ramifications of Kefla being separated from Caulifla and Kale. Or the guy who brought up Eric wanting to help people. So there are still things that can be explored regarding Kefla

Ideally I'd want the twins to make planetary terraforming tech, personally. Being able to restructure planets to better support life (ESPECIALLY if they can convert pollution back into stable, life-sustaining substances) would be high tier as fuck. And from the sound of it, several planets in our universe could definitely benefit from it.
Universe 9 too, but those guys are out of our reach really. I wouldn't want to risk selling the tech to them and potentially breaking some rules, even if it'd make a massive profit.

Only two more trials remain.

After reaching the village which is tasked with the safekeeping of the six star dragon ball the locals don't waste a second taking you to their representative. The Namekians are clearly excited with your progress and cheer you on as you enter the house.

Inside a small child awaits you.
"Welcome offworlder.
Please, have a seat."
Bowing you sit down at the table and the child sits on its opposite end.
Bringing up a small, decorated stone slab he starts explaining the second to last trial.
"This is an old game created by our ancestors to sharpen their minds.
It's a game of tactics and forward thinking. Here, let me teach you the rules."

For a lengthy period of time the young child explains the objective of the game as well as all the rules associated with it.
It's basically chess with the same objective but with a few pieces being placed differently and having different allowed moves.
The rules are simple: Each player has one key figure with very limited movement options which they must protect while taking out the enemies with your other pieces.

You nod diligently as the intricacies are explained but it seems... fishy.
"I used to be the best player on Namek... before the tournament.
But now... I don't know. I guess I still am. But I don't know if I'm... me anymore.
You know what I mean?"

"I guess I do..."

"Great! Then... let's play!"
And he gestures for you to make the first move.
"Just remember. No rush. Think carefully about each move."

>Play aggressive. Pressure him until he makes a mistake

You try to sit back and think carefully through your moves. You've never really played chess before, not competitively anyway but you know the rules and the basic gist of it. So you know rushing things won't get you anywhere.
Taking your time you observe the board and keeping the rules in mind start calculating what consequences would certain moves have.

It was in this moment when you made your first move based on your foresight that you realized something...
Up until now you barely realized your own progress. You're surrounded by gods and godlike beings all the time so your progress seemed insignificant when compared to them.
But now... when you are tasked with something so mundane... you realize how far you've come.

Moving your front line slightly forward you decide to play more defensively and only extend your lines as much as needed to draw your opponent in. As it's now the small namekians turn to move you take the opportunity to speak with him.
"Regarding your dilemma..."

"Hmmmm?"

"You being a different person... What would it change?"
The boy makes his move and looks up from the board at you.
"Back where I came from... we have this theory."
You make your move.
"That we aren't necessarily the same person that we were ten years ago. Our personalities and memories change in subtle ways every day, and the changes are said to eventually stack up so much that we're essentially a different person. Even if we act or think similarly to before, it's not the same. Of course, like I said, that's all a theory."

"I see. What an interesting way to look at it."
The boy makes his next move and starts advancing on you.

"I know. Truth be told I asked myself the same thing.
In such a short time I felt myself changing so much. Every now and then when I see my own reflection I start thinking...
Is this really me?"

"Change... can be difficult to adjust to."

"Yes. But change is good.
It's what drives the world forward.
If it's good change then it's all good, if it's bad you just have to make sure it doesn't happen again."

"True."
>>
>>3293524
Looks like Eric is musing about the Ship of Theseus. Probably appropriate here given how he’s made such meteoric progress on top of being brought back from an extended stay in the afterlife plus being erased by Zeno.
>>
Your strategy was perfect, your execution impeccable.
The little Namekian tried every single thing in his power to break through your iron defense but every time he thought he made some progress you were ready to punish him and make him regret his move.
For every piece he took he lost two.

You grin as the small child sweats in front of you.
He lost this one already and he knows it. Trying to break through your well constructed defensive lines he lost too many pieces already. The only way he'd win is if you got suddenly greedy and broke your formation to attack him.
But you won't.

With a sigh he flicks over his own leader and gives up.
"Well played.
In all my years I've never encountered such a player.
Are you sure this is your first time playing? Because it felt like you were three steps ahead of me all the time."

You nod.
"I just happen to have a knack for playing games."

"Regardless... you've earned the right to use our dragon ball."
He walks up to a wall and removes a segment of it to reveal a secret little hole in which the treasure lies.

"Thanks.
But... tell me something.
Was winning the condition for earning it? I assume not."

"Correct.
Winning does not necessarily mean you earn the ball.
Nor does losing mean you fail. It's a matter of mental acumen.
If you fight to your best ability and consider your moves, you earn it even if I defeat you.
But regardless if you won or lost, I think you proved yourself with that earlier conversation of ours...
So all I'd like to say is... thanks."

Walking out you are greeted by the others who seem to be quite bored as you apparently spent hours inside that building.
"What took you so long?"
Kamin asks.

"I was asked to play a game with the local champion.
Got a ball out of it."

Oren then snaps.
"This is ridiculous.
Why are you wasting time with something so pointless when you could just take it!
If it's for a "Good cause" then they should just hand them over to you or you should take it by force!"
The male twin voices his frustration.

>The ends don't justify the means.
The universe is what you make of it. If you keep taking things by violence or force when inconvenienced, people will take note.

From a purely pragmatic standpoint, things might be sweet for a while, but then you'll have a lot of people out for your head or worse. If you try to bargain or talk your way out of a situation, you'll be forced to resort to force 95% of the time because of your reputation. Violence begets violence.

Look at Sidra's universe. People there are by and large vicious killers for whom backstabbing and low cunning are a way of life. They're not doing so well right now (exceptions included for Hyssop and the rest of his buddies).

You walk up to the boy and pat his head which he doesn't know how to react to.
Ruffling his hair you begin to educate him.

"B-But-"

"Look Oren.
The universe is what you make of it.
Look at Hyssop over there. His universe is one where people chose what you suggested.
It didn't end up good for anyone."

Giggling in the background Kamin chastises her brother.
"Someone's in trou~ble!"

Stepping over to her you give her a menacing look.
"Nobody is in trouble missy!"
And then you ruffle her hair as well.
"Just so you don't feel left out!"
>>
Seemingly understanding what you tried to explain to them you nod and leave the two alone.
"Okay. Just one more.
Be patient and once we're done here we'll do something fun, okay?"
They exchange a glance before giving you a nod.

Making your way to the last village you are greeted not by a parade as you'd have imagined but the entire village lined up and bowing before you. One of them steps out of the line and starts explaining things to you.
"Greetings strangers...
You are on the cusp of achieving what only the greatest of us has managed.
But before you do... your last trial remains. I must warn you though that it will be... different."

"I've endured and enjoyed your previous trials. Except the trial of pain. That one blows.
I'm sure I'll manage this one."

The Namekian frowns.
"The difficulties of the last trial will be unlike any you've faced before.
Only the strong of heart ever persevere and even they are oft affected by what they see.
Be careful offworlder..."

You swallow nervously as the entire town remains in dead silence, not budging an inch, waiting for you to enter the shadowy room.

Magic I think is literally just universe hax, Zeno just raises his hand and he can do omnipotent actions, that is magic. I would also think that the power of destruction is partially magical since it is very thorough, killing in this timeline and others. (unless they have a time ring)

I feel like your referencing something but for life of me I can't seem to remember what.
>>
>>3293739
Psychic powers are mental, and KI is your physical, but both are life energy and come from you and the line can get blurred when it comes to the weirder abilities. I think magic is more messing with reality's energy, rather than your own. At least that's what I think. The magic we have seen is never offensive or on the fly like ki is. It's stuff that messes with the world around you, things like clothes bean, clairvoyance, magic items like senzu beans and wind controlling fans, stealing energy rather than sharing like ki users can, shaping unknown energies into physical beings like Bibidi did with Buu. It seems like magic is the mirtor image to technology, you create things that are useful or boost/enhance you in some way, rather than a more direct power like telekinesis and energy blasts.
>>
Looks like Hyssop will be spared from this one

>writing
>>
>>3293754
Bidibi didn't create Buu.
Buu is ageless and has existed since the birth of that universe.
Also Moro has offensive magic.
Energy Absorption at a distance and Terrain Manipulation.
Basically he can evil spirit bomb and take energy by force for himself.
>>
>>3293754
>>3293757

Seems like magic is more utility due to bending reality at first glance.

Can't create something out of nothing? Fuck that, have a clothes beam.

Wish you could wish for something? No need to rub that lamp, have some magic wish-granting balls.

Want to drain energy from a planet and everyone on it and be super sneaky like so they won't even realize what you've done until it's too late? Put on your robe and wizard hat, we're going magicking.
>>
>>3293757
But Buu is still magic.
He can turn anyone into candy.
Plus his healing "SEEMS" to be magic since the fucker can come back from fucking SMOKE apparently
>>
>>3293763
Yeah but Goat is still kicking Manlets ass.
You can also go the Buu route of "fuck you turn into a cookie" and there's always the ever useful ability to heal people.
>>
>>3293772
Buu's healing probably is magic.
He can heal other people too.
He's basically the ultimate support and is too overpowered for the ToP which is why he slept.
"I'm out of Stamina and injured! Buu heal me."
"Ok."
>>
Honestly the biggest problem with bringing Buu to the ToP would be him getting pissed and eating someone because he got so worked up he forgot he wasn't supposed to do that.
>>
>>3293794

If you think about it, Buu might be a nightmare for someone like Hit to fight too.

He has no internal organs or weak points, he's a magical putty creature. While he can be defeated if you thrash him hard enough, you have to be significantly more powerful than him to do so or expend a lot of energy in slowly wearing him down. You can disintegrate him in a single blast, but you need such a huge overwhelming power to do so otherwise he'll just regenerate from scratch.
>>
>>3293794
Oh yeah. Buu gave a blind boy eyes!
Then fed him man milk.

Babidi could also make a magic barrier which could withstand Buus angry explosion.
He could also mind control people, empower them with magic, teleport. Seriously he was fucking powerful, strong enough to make a Perfect Cell level warrior his slave but by the time he showed up powerlevels got out of control
>>
>>3293801
>Babidi could also make a magic barrier which could withstand Buus angry explosion.

While he was in a bisected state due to an angry Namekian.

So I guess it might not be out of the question to get Freeza/Cooler level hard-to-killness if we pursue magic hard enough.
>>
>>3293801
With Dabura under his control he really had no business trying to wake Buu.
Especially after Vegeta shrugs off his mind control.
Oh yeah he could also communicate with entire planets telepathically.
Sort of like Kais.
>>
>>3293801
Ik db xenoverse isn't canon but if we go magic can we make shadow copies of enemies. I really liked the demigra, and elder Kai magic set
>>
>>3293807
Freeza level hard to kill is continuing to live as a pile of meat cubes.
And surviving a whole hour against fucking Broly.
A healing spell on a damage contingency would be cool.
The Tuffle kids can also heal themselves.
>>
>>3293821
Let's go through some healing methods
Immortality: Self Explanatory
Namekians: Can regen as long as they don't die from the wound and certain Namekians can heal others
Cell: has all the abilities of the Namekians plus his Freeza Cells allow him to continue to survive as a single Cell
Buu: Magic regeneration. Can regenerate from smoke/molecules?/atoms?
Can also heal others very well
Senzu: Magic heal bean
Healing pod: heals you, later models can put you together again from pieces and also regenerate limbs
Metal Cooler: bullshit tech
Kaioshin/Apprentices: God ki healing I guess?
Goku that one time as SSG vs Beerus: what even was this?

"I've got a bad feeling about this!
Hopefully I won't meet my dad in there."

"Why? Is your father powerful?"
The twins ask.

"No it's- never mind."
You speak to the Namekians.
"I'm ready!"

They allow you to enter the dark room and pull a curtain over the door so nobody can see or hear anything that goes on.
Inside you find... nothing, strangely enough. Stumbling around the dark you struggle to figure out what the namekians want from you. Perhaps this is some sort of an escape room.

But just as you started having wild ideas about what the hell is going on you see lights blinking... in the distance?
That can't be right.

Making a mad dash for it you feel like the insides of this building are impossibly large compared to how small it looked on the outside.
Once you reach the lights however you're ABSOLUTELY sure that some fuckery is underfoot.
Around you are dozens if not hundreds of lit, burning candles. Some smaller, some taller, all strangely still.
The lights continue to not flicker at all even when you wave your hand around them when a Namekian steps out of the shadows.

"Greetings boy."
The word "boy" was appropriate.
Even compared to their Grand Elder this one appears to be almost ancient.
"I've been waiting for you. It's not often we get a visit from the gods or their associates."

"I'm flattered but... who are you again?"

"I am the Guardian of Namek.
I've been overlooking the development of my people for aeons now.
Yet never in my thousands of years have I encountered a character like you..."

"Well I'm flattered and all but I have to ask again...
Who are you?"

"You could call me an... intermediary between the planet and the lesser Kai overseeing our sector of the universe.
Our job is to make theirs easier, to give them an additional pair of eyes overseeing planets when the Kai is occupied by other tasks."

"And is it customary for the last trial to be done by you?"

"Yes.
My people are aware of me and my role.
But... I must admit it's not often anyone undertakes this ordeal.
For many have tried. Most of them... failed. All walked out... different."
Then the shadowy namek lifts his arm and the candles around you begin to flicker.
"But let us not waste any more time. Let us begin!"
>>
>>3293847
I'm guessing Goku, being a god and all heard his friends prayers and that somehow healed him? I 'unno
>>
>>3293757
I didn't say he made buu, I said he shaped him. He found a eldritch comsic entity, took a piece and made it sentient, or something along those lines. Also the steal energy and make it your own was reffering to goat wizard and falls into the enhancing/boosting I was talking about. You don't have an innate power you use, you shape the world around you into a weapon.

"Now listen closely Son of Earth...
These candles... are lives. Each and every single one.
When the flames of their lives eat away at their bodies, the candle disappears. When that happens fire dies and with it their lives are snuffed out.
Some are longer, some are shorter, the cruelty of nature."

Looking around you begin to shudder as you start seeing glimpses of faces in the flames.
The Guardian then steps over to a small, flickering one. The fire is about to die out.
"This one... was short. Too short.
So young, so innocent... it saddens the heart knowing that sometimes those who have done no wrong... die and there is nothing we can do about it. While there are some that are long even though they deserve nothing more than an early grave."

Slowly the decrepit Namekian walks over to you and as he leans in your face stares into your soul.
"I'd like to ask you a question."
He walks back to the small candle and... lifts it up by its base.
"This candle is that of a young child, innocent and pure, she hasn't committed any sins and it's unlikely she ever will!"
He then walks over to a particularly tall one.
"While this... this candle is despicable.
Its flames have snuffed out many others just so it could burn longer.
This belongs to a criminal who committed many atrocities. Too many to name them all.
Yet he's still in his prime, ready and eager to cause more evil."

The Guardian shuts his eyes.
"Tell me... son of man."
He raises the small candle over the tall one.
"If I drop this... the life of the man ends then and there. But the small girls is extended.
Should I do it?"

You pause and stare at him in silence...

Dabura was strong but it was possible to kill him, Buu was a living super weapon left behind daddy bibidi that could take on the gods and win easy. Babadi was power hungry and clearly wanted to be on top. Why wouldn't he want the unbeatable superweapon that could make the god race who rule the universe (pre-beerus) tremble?

Playing with people’s lives seems wrong, no matter what good it might seem to do in the future.

World leaders do it all the time out of necessity, but directly interfering in this way seems to be presuming that we know everything that there is to know about the two, and that free will doesn’t factor into the equation at all. That’s an arrogance that I hope that we never experience.

I’d lean towards refusing because everyone has the right to determine their own path. Even if they don’t do any bit of good with their life, they are free to choose to do so.

Seems like we're pretty unified in this, here's hoping the trial is a test of honesty/admitting you don't if you could make that choice. If it's a test of conviction we might still paas too.

The Guardian frowns and carefully sets down the candle at his feet and walks up to you.
When he's right in front of you again he seems to grow... angry.
"Yet you did just that!
You've taken a life in the past in order to save another! There is already blood on your hands!
Are you saying that this is different somehow?! That you have the right to decide who lives and dies when it's convenient for you but as soon as it comes to responsibility you'd rather be morally good?!"

>Write-in

In that event, we had a lot of context to work with. We were hunting down fugitives from another universe, we know that they were enslaving the locals, and that they were already probably horrible people from their comrades' explanations and from the info we got from our divine sources. We don't have much to go on with this particular scenario; only that there is a horrible person whose life we can cut short in exchange for someone else's.

In addition, we are not risking anything of our own by doing this. When we decided to confront and kill that dude oppressing the Arcosians, we did so by putting our boots on the ground and potentially putting our life on the line. We could have died from exposure or in battle, but that was a risk we decided to take to free the Arcosians and as a part of our plan to free Hyssop/Hop/Sorrel.

In deciding whether to snuff out or extend lives in this manner, we are doing so in a dangerously detached and impersonal manner. We have not met either of these people face-to-face, nor have we known anything about our actions aside from what you have told us. We also would not be able to see the consequences of what we are doing, and it costs us very little to decide whether someone lives or dies. This can make the very delicate and personal action of deciding people's lives as simple and as convenient as eating a piece of bread, which is something that should be avoided.

Maybe we shouldn't have killed that other guy and instead knocked him out for Sidra to judge himself, but at least we were willing to confront him at risk to our self.
>>
>>3294008
This is basically what I wanted to say expanded
>>
>>3294008
tldr: snuffing out lives using the candles is wrong because it's impersonal, convenient, and has practically no risk to ourself. This is a very dangerous, detached, and convenient way of casually playing with people's lives. Which is a very dangerous way of going about things since it's easy to become detached from how our actions affect people's lives.

When we killed that fugitive on Arcosia, we at least took on the personal risk and responsibility that comes with actually putting our boots to the ground and confronting him personally. The personal element of confronting him and putting ourselves at risk doesn't make it completely better than the candles, but we at least put ourselves at risk with all the responsibilities that entails for what we thought had to be done.
>>
>>3293991
I took a life in the midst of combat where people put their lives on the line and understand the risks. What you are suggesting is that I take or steal the life on another to prolong this girls life. You would do better to offer life from your own candle, or to ask for a volunteer. Perhaps from the elderly or suicidal, but to take by force the life force of another even for a noble cause, will cause you to slide down that moraly grey slope until you become just as evil and deluded as that man whos candle you are trying to snuff out.
>>
>>3293991
> I don't claim to be morally untouchable, I admit that I have blood on my hands. When it comes to the situations I've been presented with I did the best I could. When that man on Smog forced himself on that girl, I stepped in, then defended .myself when he shot at me. When the u9 warriors escaped, I helped those who were willing to come peacefully and took down the ones who were making life hell for the Arcosians. When it came to the tuffles....well I'm trying to do my best for
the twins they deserve that much.

>When I stepped it and got my hands dirty, it was to protect someone from another. All those guys, they made their choice to attack just like I did, there was always a connection between the attacker and their victims. This is.....not that, this is me imposing my will on two seperate people before they've even made their choice. Who says this man can't be redeemed, who says this girl will grow up and wish someome hadn't died for her, who says another can't choose to save her. Even if you find it hypocritical or lame, I'm sorry but I stand by what I believe. Sometimes people need to make tough choices, but going by that as a default is callous and takes away mortal agency and freewill, like an arrogant god.

We are legion in our inability to accept moral responsibility.
Leave that to the gods.
>>
>>3294063
I’m a bit confused though. If the Guardian is angry about is killing when convenient and not acccepting responsibility, then why is he angry about us not snuffing the candle out?

I guess we’ll find out in the next update.
>>
>>3294074
"Reeeeee kill who I tell you to kill!"
"Fuck you and your candles."
>>
>>3294074
I’m assuming it’s an act, to try and make us answer as truthfully as we can by putting us under duress.
>>
"Yes. I don't claim to be morally untouchable, I admit that I have blood on my hands. When it comes to the situations I've been presented with I did the best I could.
That is to say, you're ignoring a lot of context!"

"What sort of context?"

"In the first case I witnessed a woman about to be violated!
I stepped in trying to defend her, I got shot at. That man tried to kill me and ruin another life!
So I retaliated!
When I met the warriors from Universe 9 I did what I could to help them! Hop, Sorrel and Hyssop are living proof of that!
But the others? They were ready to ruin other lives! I SAW them ruining other lives! So I stepped in and got my hands dirty!
Every time it was to protect someone from another. All those guys, they made their choice to attack just like I did, there was always a connection between the attacker and their victims. This is.....not that, this is me imposing my will on two separate people before they've even made their choice.
Who says this man can't be redeemed, who says this girl will grow up and wish someone hadn't died for her, who says another can't choose to save her. Even if you find it hypocritical or lame, I'm sorry but I stand by what I believe. Sometimes people need to make tough choices, but going by that as a default is callous and takes away mortal agency and freewill, like an arrogant god."
You clench your fist, angry at yourself.
"And when it came to the tuffles....well I'm trying to do my best for the twins they deserve that much."

The guardian steps back and waits for a moment, mulling over what he heard from you.
Then with a whisk of his hand he wiped out all the candles at once. Your jaw hit the ground and you stared in disbelief.
"W-Why?"

He smiled.
"I told you that I am the guardian of this planet.
I don't have any authority over other planets."

"W-Wha?"

"And there are no female Namekians.
I thought we told you that!"
>>
>>3294131
>"And there are no female Namekians.

I thought it was meant to be a hypothetical like a philosophy teacher asking a heavy question. No one actually thought this was real right?
>>3294131

I figured as much but figured us speaking directly with passion forgetting that IC would be more impactful than just calling him out on that.
>>
>>3294165
*Snort* heck no.
>>
>>3294165
I mean, I figured he was full of it about killing people and the scenario and getting angry and all, but I wasn’t sure about the candles. The only context we have for planetary Guardians is Kami, and he’s got a bunch of crazy shit on the Lookout.
>>
>>3294157
>One guy figured it out
I don't get it, I thought he was asking us a hypothetical, not asking us to what he should actually do with lives he actually has access to? Or referring to Namekians in particular actually, I did assume he was talking about lives in general and not Namekians in particaular.

Was this a test about not making assumptions or spotting a fallacy?
>>
"T-Then-"

"All theatrics.
For someone who has seen so many movies you still seem to fall for it.
What? Do you just get swept up in your little space opera?"
Then as the room lights back up the guardians cheerfulness disappears and he becomes serious once more.
"Killing is an ugly thing. But... there is nothing wrong with that.
To kill is to live, to live is to kill. It's just nature.
It's only different with mortals is... well because of that context of yours."

"I... wha-"

"You know what killing is, what it means. And sadly that means you are under much more scrutiny.
It is inevitable that you'll eventually kill someone. However as you said the how's and why's are what really matter in this case.
You understand what you did. And it clearly left a mark on you. But that's okay. So long as you kill with a heavy heart, knowing the full weight of what you do is acceptable.
But I could never allow the Dragon Balls to fall in the hands of a cold hearted murderer who can't... won't take responsibility for his actions!"

"So does that mean that...
I... pass?"

"Correct. But I won't give you the Dragon Ball..."
You pause, not making a move.
"Hmmm... bummer. I wanted to see your reaction...
Anyway, I'll hold onto this. After all you'll need a Namekians help to summon the dragon!"
Walking out of the door the Guardian is greeted by his people in utter silence... until he raises the dragon ball.
After that the crowd erupts.
"Children of Namek! Feast your eyes for today... we shall see the Dragon of Dreams once more!"

"HURRAY!"
The crowd cheers as the Guardian walks over to Vados, around whom the rest of the balls levitate.

"Your ladyship... If you would!"
With the balls finally gathered everyone falls silent once more as they watch the Guardian do his work.
He clears his throat and shouts at the balls.
"Takkaraputo Popurunga pupirittoparo!"

There was nothing.
"Erm sir... are you sure you didn't forget how to do this-"
Hyssop asked him but before he could finish the balls began to glow...

As the orbs began to glow the sky blackened until it was darker than the purest void and the world went still.
Suddenly from the spheres a light shot up in the air and as it expanded into a strange form you nearly shat yourself.
The thing that popped out certainly wasn't like any dragon you've ever heard of as it looks like it's been lifting since the beginning of time and space it's so jacked.

The massive creatures eyes glowed blood red as it spoke in an alien language.
The Guardian was kind enough to translate for you.
"He is the Dragon of Dreams, Porunga. State your three wishes."

"T-Three?!"

The Guardian nods.
"But do bear in mind that the Dragons power is limited.
It can not grant any wish beyond my power. That is to say, if you ask it to affect a person it won't work if they are stronger than me... unless they want it to."

You look over to Hyssop and nod to him.
"Go ahead."

Slowly twiddling his fingers the large iceberg walks up to the Guardian.
"Master Guardian sir... I'd like to ask your dragon to... resurrect my family. My wife and my son!"

"I'm sorry... but that will be two wishes. One for each person.
Is that alright with you Eric, son of Earth? I can not grant this wish unless you agree to it."

You nod.
"Of course. That's why we're here in the first place."

The Guardian then speaks in Namekian once more and after receiving an answer from Porunga turns to you with a nervous sweat on his face.
"Erm... He says he's sorry but... your family is fine. They are both alive and well."

Hyssop looks like a weight has been lifted off his heart.
"T-Then... would it be possible to... bring them both here?"

"That can certainly be arranged.
*ahem*
PORUNGA-"
The Guardian spoke his wish and the dragons eyes glowed with red light once more.

Suddenly a lightning bolt hit the ground and lingered. From the light two figures stepped out and just like when you met him you saw Hyssop crying.
"I-Is this- Are you-"

"Yes dear..."

"Papa!"

The three rushed together and embraced each other, now all three of them crying with joy.
It was so heart warming you barely even had time to be amused by the fact that Hyssops wife looks just like him but with lipstick on her mouth plus boobs and his son is a carbon copy of him. Perhaps there are subtle differences between them but for the love of your life you can't see it.

But sadly this touching moment is cut short by the Guardian who turns to you.
"I hate to bother you but the time of the Dragon is limited.
I require you to state your remaining two wishes."

You look at Hyssop who snivels a bit and looks up at you.
"Go ahead friend! I can never repay you for this!"

With a heavy heart and a stone in your throat you step up and swallow nervously.
>You now have two wishes. Choose wisely
>>
>>3294230
.....OOOOOOOOOOOH, oof that sucks
>>
>>3294233
It's better this way, I'm sure we'll be able to learn how to teleport anyway.
At our bullshit levels we just need to see Instant Transmission or Kai Kai and work on duplication.
Or if we learn portals we could possibly even make a permanent portal linked to Earth.

Woah nevermind, they both lived! Two wishes though. Crap I'm not sure. First I'm a say an instant teleportation move that can be used on the fly
I guess fixing planet plant too. I'm sure nothing bad will come from that
>>3294271
Beat me to it
>>
>>3294271
I'd uh.....hold off on the Planet Plant anon. Like, I get what your aiming for her, but lets wait abit to ensure the Truffles DON'T want to go on a universal war of conquest before we restore their home world.
>>
>>3294255
>I wish I knew every cooking recipe in the universe!
Don't care as long as this is one of the wishes
>>
>>3294278
1) We stole their greatest weapon.
2) They are plebs otherwise
3) Super Saiyans will wreck their shit
currently they have no reason not to try war because they live in an ultra shithole.
>>
>>3294255
Ask Vados for her opinion?
>>
>>3294255
I'm concerned about fixing Planet Plant just like that, simply because if the Tuffle civil war goes bad and they go back to genocidal expansionism they'd have a planet full of resources to do what they will with. Maybe a contingency that the planet goes back to shit when they start using it's resources for said genocidal expansionism and recovers when they interact relatively peacefully with the universe, if that's even possible?

I'm on board with teleportation, though I assume there'll be some limitations given Porunga's power level.

>>I wish I could teleport around the universe at will!
>>
>>3294284
That doesn't mean they still don't have a burning hatred of the Saiyans and think the other races are trash dude.

Yeah their plebs. That doesn't mean they can't cause alot of damage if they feel like it.

We just gave them our Humanity like a day or two ago. Let them at try and work out if they want to be People or Monsters first before we give them the keys to restarting their war machine.
>>
>>3294273
I like this but maybe we should ask if the namekians need anything?
>>
>>3294286
>>I wish I could teleport around the universe at will!
+
Vlados opinion.
>>
>>3294296
If we give them every opportunity in the fucking universe to unfuck their shit and they go back to being awful then we're taking that bomb and shoving it so far up their ass they puke uranium.
Our planet got it's own second chance as well, we can relate.
>>
>>3294305
I'm fine with that.

>>I wish I could teleport around the universe at will
>>Ask the Namekians if they need anything
>>If not then wish to know every cooking recipe in the universe.

>>3294311
Our planet got fucked up because we were collateral to the Omni King's desires. Planet Plant got fucked because the Truffles stripmined it to feed their universal war machine.

Totally different situations.
>>
>>3294279
If your gonna wish for recipes ask for the ability to prepare them as well.
>>
>>3294311
I'm sorry but we JUST saw these monsters drag a little girl away because she fell. They fucked up. Give them time to unfuck up before helping the genocideing wannabe terminatord
>>
>>3294317
Nope, humans nuked themselves.
Technically we're on chance #3 now.
Very similar situations.
Also they need increased mechanization to even survive.
>>
>>3294317
No our planet got fucked the first time because humanity in u6 was a big shit and started WW3. Then the entire universe got fucked because of the Omni-king's tournament. Remember U6 Earth was destroyed twice and the first time was entirely our own fault
>>
Weren't we just told how wishing for our teleportation power would be superflous? Though I admit I have no idea what else to wish for besides asking the guardian of Namek what wish the Namekians would need, since they are still struggling to repopulate and such.
>>
>>3294324
Actually we saw a little girl drag herself to her doom.
>>
>>3294321
I mean...I kinda don't want to do that? We can have Vados make any equipment we require but the actual cooking is our job. It's why I wished for recipes instead of being to materialize food at will.
>>
Not-Som, can we make a conditional wish for Plant, like the planet recovering if the Tuffles aren't being warmongering dickheads, and the opposite if they are, or is that kind of thing beyond the scope of a Dragonwish?
>>
>>3294334
This seems like a bit of a waste either way, we could just buy cookbooks. You can't buy the ability to survive any environment, teleport, or fix a planet.

Yea hold off on Plant ask either Vlados or Mamecks if they need anything.

>>3294349
Mental Gymnastics is Eric's special ability.
We basically forcefed every Tuffle emotions and obliterated their Borg thing.
That only solved half the issue, there's a reason that they became that way.
They fucked up their planet.
Unlike humanity, they were unlucky enough to survive the ordeal.
>>
>>3294356
Yea that'd be for the best

>writing
>>
The teleport and "survive anywhere" wishes feel kinda silly as we can eventually use our psychic powers to achieve similar results I think, but at the same time, wishes like restoring planet plant or bringing a fusion to life just don't seem like good ideas with our current lack of knowledge on the situations.

How about we ask the tuffle kids what they'd wish for? Gotta give them some kinda bonus for following us all this way, and we should be able to shoot it down if it is too malicious.

>>
>>3294380
I'm cool with that
>>
We're forgetting the most important wish.
Bring North Kai back to life!
>>
>>3294255
shit you may need to enable a subvote based on popular wishes.
>>
So far universal teleportation seems to have a pretty solid lock, but the second wish is still in contention. Might be good to have an update and second vote for the second wish in that case.
>>
Could we wish to have a positive modifier when cooking?
>>
>>3294403
If we knew about that, we would.

Unfortunately we do not so King Kai will have to accessorize with his halo for a while longer.
>>
You rub your nose and think through all the possibilities but it proves too much.
Spoiled for choice would be an adequate description, if you are told could get everything you can't come up with anything.
So you turn to Vados for some outside help.

"Hey Vados!"

"Hmmm?"

"Could you tell me what's the current status of Planet Plant?"

"Hmmmm... let's see-"
Vados peers into her crystal ball.
"It appears that Planet Plant is currently undergoing civil war between two opposing factions.
One which embraces the new ideas brought up by their superintelligence and the other which rejects these new paradigms."

Good. That's one thing to consider.
Then you turn to the twins.
"Kamin, Oren! Do you want anything?"
They quickly exchange a look and give you a collective shrug. Looks like they are at a loss just as much as you are.
"Great... How about you? Traditionally the sons of Namek use the dragon balls when they are in need.
Well? Do you need anything currently?"

The Guardian pauses and tightens his grip on his staff, clearly struggling to form his thoughts into words.
"Well.. It doesn't sit well with me to say this, after all you earned the right to use the Dragon Balls.
And I don't like to beg or Kais forbid steal your wish... but if you could aid our repopulation effort-"

"Got it... So you do need something."
You start counting on your fingers and realize that's two already.
"Well... now to think over mine...
Space travel... Hmmm... maybe a ship? But... I wanna learn a way to fly on my own. Wouldn't want spaceship taxes.
Recipes from all over the universe... But my head would probably explode from all the knowledge... maybe a cookbook..."
You mumble to yourself until you manage to formulate a few decent ones.

Pick two:
>Aid planet Plants rebels!
>Help the sons of Namek!
>The Cookbook of Infinite Recipes!
>To be able to go anywhere in the universe!
>>
>>3294435
>Help the sons of Namek!
>Aid planet Plants rebels!
>>
>>3294435
>>Aid planet Plants rebels!
>>Help the sons of Namek!
Ah shit. Oh Well.

The Namekians deserve a wish of their own, and their's a Civil War going on because of us, and we can't just ignore that. Nevermind them message it would send to our kids.

We will just have to learn teleportation later I guess.
>>
>>3294435
>Aid planet Plants rebels!
>Help the sons of Namek!
Both of the others we can eventually grow into with improving our skill or using the dragonballs again in a years time
>>

I kind of want us to curse our good-hearted nature when choosing the more selfless wishes. Oh well, at least we can get the other two by other means. And the journey is half the fun for the recipes!
>>
>>3294459
Worst comes to worst she can tell us about Instant Transmission or Kai Kai.
>>
>>3294453

Kai Kai and IT also work outside the universe and in other multiverses, hilariously the DBs would limit us to within the universe itself.

>>
>>3294519
Well, assuming Porunga didn't just grant the wish by teaching us those techniques anyway.
>>
With a sigh you resign yourself.
"Fuck me and my good nature.
Why couldn't I be a selfish dickbag?"
You look at the dragon and speak up.
"First I wish you to aid the Rebels of Planet Plant so they may triumph over their evil nature and brethren!"

The Guardian translates your wish and then conveys the dragons message.
"It is done! Now state your last wish!"

"And lastly... I wish to aid the sons of Namek in their repopulation effort!"
The Guardian seems to be at a loss for words.
"What are you waiting for? Phrase it however it's best for you. I don't care."

"I... Thank you!"

"Don't mention it.
Just do it before I change my mind and ask for two stories tall golden schlong statue!"

The Guardian speaks his wish and the great Dragon Porunga disappears in a flash of brilliance and the dragon balls turn to stone. Looking at them you ask the Guardian.
"I-Is this normal?"

"Hmmm? Oh yes.
Now we must wait one Namekian year before they can be used again."

"Cool. So how did you do it?"

"I asked for Saonel and Pirina to be capable of creating eggs much faster.
That way we can repopulate our planet much faster."

"Neat...
Now I'd love to stay on your... lovely planet some more but I believe we should get going.
I believe we have a million other things to do and probably you do as well."

"Wait!
Before you go...
Someone just requested your presence."

"H-How do you know that?"

"I'm the Guardian I know everything that goes on on this planet."

>Sure. It's not like I can't spare five more minutes.

"Well if it's that important then sure.
But I'm gonna leave my friends here. Hyssop needs some catching up to do."

"Of course. It shouldn't be more than a few minutes."

The Guardian then lead you to the place where this individual resides.
It's not much of a surprise that it's a place you've been to previously.
The Grand Elders house.

Landing in front of the door the warrior keeping the elder safe greets you.
"Congratulations on summoning the dragon offworlder.
From this day onward every son of Namek will look upon you as kin."

Rubbing the back of your neck you giggled awkwardly.
"Well that's a bit too much but thanks for the compliment!"

"Hmph... Now come inside.
The elder is waiting for you."

Entering alone as the Guardian claims he has no business being in there you meet the Grand Elder once more.
"I'd... congratulate you... but I believe you've heard that enough already.
Instead... I'll cut to the chase. The Guardian told me what you did."

"Ho-"

"Telepathy.
You should learn it. It has many uses. Like watching TV through someone elses eyes."

"Free cable!"

"Indeed...
But now... come here my child."
Swallowing nervously you do as he asks.
"What you did for us is a great service. It is unbelievably rare to see someone sacrifice a real wish to help others.
But to sacrifice both... is unheard of.
And on Namek... we don't like leaving good deeds unrewarded."

"W-What do you have in mind Grand Elder?"

The large, fat Namekian then reaches out and ruffles your hair. Now you start to understand why it makes the twins uncomfortable.
"You're a good boy Eric, son of Earth.
But I believe you can be more... much more.
For you see... actions like yours tend to attract a certain crowd of people... not necessarily the good kind.
And when that time comes... when you have to face them... being a good boy is simply not enough.
You must become... the best boy."

As he says that you feel something...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VrzQzTQCYkA

Almost as if your bowels were set on fire you feel a terrifying amount of heat bubbling up from deep within, risking to blow you apart as it erupts violently.
Such a thing does not happen but you do feel... power.
Incredible, unbound, UNLEASHED POWER!

"WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH!"
You can't help but scream to the stars as torrential amounts of ki erupt from within your body and tear the building around you asunder. The pillar of light shoots up to the sky, alongside the bits that remain from the ceiling like a beacon of power.

"Oh my goood! NATURAL LIIIIGHT!"
Guru wails in terror.

As the door behind you is also obliterated in the blast you see the Guardian and Ney the bodyguard of the Grand Elder look at you in abject horror.
"SERIOUSLY! WHAT THE FUCK IS EARTH?!"
They shout in confusion.

You can't control yourself anymore.
With your body brimming, no... overflowing with power you can't keep it together any longer.
Your psychic powers go haywire as well with all the excess power, causing your hair to flail around wildly before they settle down only... no longer affected by gravity.

Standing up and flowing like water your hair, as well as your entire body is enveloped in a palpable aura.
Grunting and shaking you look up at Guru who sits back in his chair.
"And with that... the dregs of power that welled up within you have been unleashed.
All that wasted potential realized. Stand proud son of man.
And kick evils ass..."

With the uncontrollable surge over your body settles back down and you put your hands together as if praying and bow before the Namekian.
"Thank you for your aid Grand Elder...
I will not waste this gift!"

"You better not...
Now go..."

You look in the direction where your friends are and smile.
"Hey Guardian... you won't mind if I go back without you."

"N-No... of course not."

You crack a smile upon hearing that.
