"That's preposturous!"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DhHGDOgjie4The heavily-muscled man wearing robes of brillant ruby red cloth spits at his three companions. "We cannot let him live, his kind is rotten to their core!""Where would you draw the line, Bishamon?" A wrinkled old man, his body criss-crossed in webs of thick, intricate tattoos, calmly rebuts from the circle of monks. "He is no longer a threat- to himself or to others. The tailed beast is to be removed harmlessly and dispersed. Would you advocate taking an defenseless life?""No, Daruma, but you have to see the beast is not the issue." the ruby robed monk, Bishamon, grits his teeth as he addresses the small company, "He was a black-souled man before given that power. You think a small lesson in humility will change the nature of someone who killed their own clansmen? Who killed your friend?"Another of the companions waves his hand, covered in a multitude of rings with seals and symbols etched into their faces. "Death is never truly an end. This is something all monks know to be true. At the heart of the Ninshū, life itself and chakra are the same. You would do well to respect the life in front of you."The third man, a golden staff slung over his shoulder, speaks up, "What would Kannon have said seeing this display now? He gave his life so his ideals- our ideals- could live on. Respect his sacrfice. Let his spirit rest in peace."They have resolved to simply let fate have its way with the weakened criminal. They have resolved to let the death of their friend pass in the name of the Ninshū.The group shouts as the crimson robes abruptly puts his hand, a strange seal carved into the palms, over the face of the man kneeling in the center of the 4 Gates. Red light seems so bleed from the man's eyes and face, his expression a silent cry. The ruby-robed man clenches his hand with a grunt and the spectacle stops. He opens slowly to reveal a single, sparkling bead shining with a deep garnet light.He looks up, a flash of deepest red streaks through his eyes. I will accomplish what you have failed I will bring a true peace.The scene fades back into the hazes of your dreams...
Hi Red! No twitter post? I guess I got lucky and actually caught your thread on time.
>You are now Asa Norihime, Kumogakure's Blue Kunoichi>You met a strange man, an alleged monk, in the city following completion of an assignment. >Following his group of companions, you stumbled and watched as they happened upon the seen of the gruesome Kikyo Pass. You stayed and decided to help the monk, Amon, when he was attacked by the Seven Swordsmen of the Mist. >He was holding his own, when all the sudden he demonstrated a power beyond your imagining and went berserk, injuring the Seven Swordsmen as well as yourself.>This is where we begin today's storyCurls of smoke crackle about in the clearing as the fire burns in the early morning air. You cough roughly as it reaches your sore throat. Ugh, you figured you have at least a few hours more of rest....You pass a look at the monk lying next to you in a pile of linens. Dragging him out of the pass after ripping those beads off was hard, but hastily setting up shelter while supporting him hurt your already-throbbing body. He looks disheveled in his sleep. He murmurs something about "Gates" before he idlely runs a hand through his short-growing buzz and snores.You sigh and pull the blankets over him a bit tighter. You saw the bodies of the other monks at Kikyo.Not to mention the wounds along Amon's entire body: broken bones, fresh red skin, and not to mention the broken foot. Surprisingly though, you haven't had to deal much with pain or anything otherwise. He's a tough one. Well, no time to waste...You jump into the branches of the nearby tree and eye the scene of the descending mountain forest before you. You see a prick in the distance that you recognize from your map as the Fire TempleYou...>Grab the bow, you need to do some reacon>Check Amon's weird items, along with the broken beads. You should know more about what you're dealing with.>Summon a companion to help watch the area>Read some of the monk's many books. What kind of power did he use back there?>Write in

"Ninja Art: Summoning Jutsu" You call, biting your thumb. The branch is engulfed in a small cloud of smoke as you slam your hand down. Your throat burns from the constant irritantion, you begin to cough and hear a concerned, deep voice grumble from in front of you."My my, that's rather rough shape you're in Asa-sama," a small white rabbit is standing on his haunches in front of you, concerned. It rubs it's nose on your hand, "Got any food?"You sigh and throw a small bundle of alfalfa to the rabbit, who leaps high into the air with a cry of joy."The usual, usagi," you dismiss the white bunny as he gives a salute. He dives off the branch to the ground below and in a spray of dirt disappears into a rabbit-sized hole. (1/2)
>>710875(1/2)You crack open Amon's pack. For a guy maybe a few years younger then you at most...he sure has the tastes of an old man. His pack is full of books, a lot of dust, some paper and ink, and the small leather bag you put the broken beads in. Not to mention the golden staff he carries around. Isn't he too old for a walking stick?You (Pick two)>Look at the beads>Look at a book>Inspect the staff

>>711109oh shit, changing >>711080 to amon's journal then. I didn't think he had one.
>>711063>Write in (Anon's Journal)
You empty out the contents of the pouch into your hand, the remnants of the beads tumbling out onto your palm. The few bits of crushed glass and shredded ribbons of cloth that had once been the beautiful beads look pitiful in your hands. When you'd ripped the beads off Amon, they had shattered and he'd collapsed. You wonder what drove him to the point of the bersek, inhuman rage you'd watched earlier.You eye the monk once more, a little longer this time, but quickly look away when he stirs slightly. You look through the bag again and find a small stack of papers strung together by a small, handmade spine. Cracking it open, it is covered in rows of looping, precise handwriting. Is this a...diary?>One of the entries near the front>The entry dated from a bit more than a week ago>There is an entry with the date from two days prior, around the time you first spotted the group>The small writing on the back of the cover

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UMEvnPYnsKQYou grin mischeviously as you flip through the pages of the book, its pages and the secrets they might containt too sweet to pass up. You stop at an entry marked for a date about a week ago and curl up against the tree to read.I try to catch my breath when I get the chance, maybe accept that this is really happening, but it seems every passing moment makes my life seem a little more surreal.It's all gone. Will everything be okay again?My mind is poisoned with thoughts of my home, reduced to rubble, and my family, cold in the wilderness. Yoru is strong-willed, but I can tell he wanders without a set direction- so to say. His flights of fantasy leave him blind to details sometimes amd his ambition seems endless.You know, this may just end up like one of those great epic fantasies I read about. I'll acquire some kind of wisdom of my own, maybe even rebuilt the Temple with the other monks, and even find a treasure to deliver back to Myatsuu and Tai!I hope they're okay.You note Kikyo Pass and the bodies strewn about there. As you solemnly put the journal back, a single, crumpled, torn note falls out of it. As you start to read it, you realize it is from a teacher of his- probably from the Temple. You gingerly stick it back between the pages of the journal and put both away. For a minute, you look down at the sleeping monk, his eyes sunken slightly and bruised. He shivers a bit in his dreams from the base of the tree. Going in to face the Seven Swordsmen alone, with so much to lose....You hop down the tree and put another blanket on Amon, before lying next to him on the makeshift blanket pile. .....Idiot. The ground furrows around the tree and a small, white head pops out- interrupting the scene with only a yelp from you. "Asa-sama, reconnoissance has been completed.""There are three groups spotted in the forest.">"A small batch of Kirigakure nin who may have been left behind following the battle at Kikyo and the retreat of the Seven Swordsman.">" A stranger wielding a sword and traveling with a two young companions.">" A single man leading a small group of people wearing robes."
>>712071>" A stranger wielding a sword and traveling with a two young companions."
>>712071>" A single man leading a small group of people wearing robes."
>>712071>>"A small batch of Kirigakure nin who may have been left behind following the battle at Kikyo and the retreat of the Seven Swordsman."
>>712110>>712090calling it in a sec, writing this then
"Follow the ones with the swordsman," you call out your orders to the saluting rabbit. "I'll be right behind you, just give me a minute before you give the signal."You turn back to the unconscious monk as the rabbit dutifully fulfills his orders.You run your thumb along the side of his jaw. It may be worth to keep him around, as long as he isn't just a crazy monk who can't control his temper. It's been a while since you'd traveled with anyone else. That is, since you defected from Kumogakure.The bow sits playfully alongside the tree. You grab it and your quiver as you jump into the trees and through the foilage, following the upturned dirt trail left by your rabbit. It ends alongside a trail leading down from Kikyo Pass, a group of three strange travelers waiting alongside a fork in the road. "Three Targets, along the road," whispers the rabbit's voice in your ear. You'd become familiar with their bags of tricks ages ago, so the genjutsu hasn't surprised you for a while. "Two are carrying what look to be merchandise, the girl looks to be a Konoha nin."It seems like the girl is discussing heatedly with the man with long, raven hair and a sword. The group shifts and you can see a scruffy face you remember. That was the man traveling with Amon. Well now,You>Take aim at one of the targets (who)>Order Usagi to attack the group>Wait and listen, see what they are up to>Go and talk to them, tell them about Amon's condition>Ignore the bunch, look for another target (Roll will be needed)
>>712514>Wait and listen, see what they are up to
You lower the bow and prepared arrow for now. You haven't made up mind on the monk's companions just yet. You swing quietly through the branches to get closer to the group and order the rabbit to do the same underground. You stop, pressed against the bark of the trees above them and listen...***************************************************"...I told you, we're NOT leaving Amon behind!" The girl, Rin, bullies the older swordsman next to her. "Shessh, look I can just leave you here in the woods alone if you're going to yell at me like that," the swordsman, Hoki, says lazily. "No, no that will hardly be necessary, Sanjuro." Yoru call from the fork in the road, "She's understandably upset still, is all. Anyways, if you turned around now my past few minutes would be in vain!" Yoru gives a forced laugh and gestures to the route on his right. "This way to the Capital and Konoha. Left cuts through the entire midland. No need to go to the Fire Temple now, I suppose.""You can't seriously be already done with what happened? With Amon!? He could still be out there!" Rin yells at Yoru in disbelief. Yoru shrugs and shakes his head, giving Rin a cold stare back."He's dead, Rin. There's no way someone could live through something like that. Unfortunate, but it was better him than us."Rin shakes her head, eyes watering. "How could you be so heartless? We don't know where they took him, but maybe the Swordsmen haven't-"Sanjuro Hoki places a hand on her shoulder, but she shrugs it off. "He was important to us. He was important to you, too!.""Don't be a fool, Rin. As much as I liked Amon, neither you nor I can revive the dead. We need to move on."Rin sobs openly and Yoru continues to look on at the path ahead, determined. "C...can we at least go to the Fire Temple, together? It is what he would have wanted."Sanjuro begins to protest against the terms, but Yoru stops him and nods his head. "You're right. He at least deserves that honor."With that, Yoru starts down the path with a dispirited Hoki. Rin stops to wipe her tears before she crouches down to the ground and buries a small flower in the dirt. She sniffles and then shuffles along to follow the others.***********************************************(1/2)
You note the man's pack sagged from the weight of whatever his cargo is. Mostly likely metal, most likely weapons. You sigh as you think about the monk resting back at the small camp. He's certainly not going to enjoy having one less friend around. You notch your bow and take aim at the weapons smuggler. You take a deep breath....**********************************************************************>You are now playing as Amon ShuuI will bring a true peaceLight burns into your eyes as you squint awake from under a mound of linen blankets. You're in the woods, though how you ended up here...The Pass, The Swordsmen. You try to jump to your feet, but find your body feels like crumpled leaves. You try to shake the last memory of a choking Asa out of your head. "Yoru, Rin!" No response from the woods around you. "Hello?" Nothing. You>Check your pack.

The blankets shed off you as easily as snakeskin as you rise, but it's the "getting-up" part that sucks. You've probably heard less creaking from old, wooden sheds in the first place. The number of pops coming from your body passed just "worrysome" the minute you'd started, but you manage the feat. You take a few, squeaky steps over to your pack by the tree and look around it. Your journal sits messily on top of the lump of stuff. You tuck it underneath- wouldn't want anyone reading it.Take a look at (2 please)>The leather pouch, that's new>Hiragan's Scroll>The Fish Scroll>The Scroll webbed in intricate symbols>FOOD>Write in (whatever)

You pull the leather pouch from the clutter eye the new item for a bit before dumping its contents in your hand. Slivers of glass and ribbons of red cloth are all that falls out. The Red Beads. You take the moment to play with the lifeless, clear material. The ribbons of red fabric have symbols traced along the entirety of their body before the shredded ends. Were these sealing something? If so...where did it go?Regardless, using the golden weight of the Wen Qu you pull yourself up and over to what looks like a small package of food next to you. In it you see a soldier pill alongside some rice and other rations. You ignore the bit of fresh meat included, but you graciously accept the meal left. You sit to meditate in thanks for the bounty..."Up, are we?" Her neck has an angry, thick bruise across its width in the shape of a hand.The dark skin is swollen and puffy around an eye. Her lip is slight beaten and her voice is rough.Even now, she has a sad, distrustful beauty to her.

"I'm sorry," You lower your head in shame. "I am truly sorry, Asa. I...may not remember much, but I remember that I am the one responsible for....for that.""It's fine," she says coldly. "No! You paid the price for my moment of weakness. It is because I lost control to whatever was in those beads so that I could get revenge. I was a fool.""Because I was a fool, you got...I.."A soft hand rests itself on your cheek. "Shhh, Amon. I saw it all, I understand."You reach to her throat and she shirks away from your touch, at first. After a moment, she obliges though. You can feel her voice humming through your fingertips. "You drove the Seven Swordsmen off alone, Amon.""It wasn't worth the cost.""I saw what was at Kikyo too, Amon. Nothing would be worth the cost you paid. Your family...""No, I was wrong. They wouldn't have wanted what I did, I put their memory to shame."Asa's hands are on your chest, she's looking at you face-to-face with your hand still around the side of her neck. "Look at me," She points to her bruises. "This is what happens when you don't have faith in your own convictions. This is what happens when you don't rely on your own strength."You stare intently and share a gaze for a little bit, before she finally blinks and breaks it off. "Let's find strength in each other, Amon. I know you'd have more than enough to spare for someone like me."(1/2)
You stare intently and share a gaze for a little bit, before she finally blinks and breaks it off. "Let's find strength in each other, Amon. I know you have more than enough to spare for someone like me."Asa idlely puts down her bow and sits on the ground next to your pack and blankets. She motions you over, "You're not nearly done recovering yet!""You still need to rest off those nasty br-"She looks at you standing for a moment, empty-eyed. "...How are you standing right now? Isn't your foot broken?"Hunh? You look down and shake your foot. "Nope, just fine."A quick look of confusion passes on her face. She lies down next to the blankets and grabs the fish-design scroll out of your bag, peeling it open. "Too many unexplained things for my liking," she huffs. "Might as well rest a bit here until it's fully daylight out. Cmon, you rest I'll read."Asa starts to read the contents of the scroll, her eyebrow slowly raises. "Amon... why are you reading a summoning contract?"*****************************************************************************That's all for today, I'll probably run tomorrow or tuesday!Twitter: @TheRedL4dy for quest times and additional discussionTwitter will be updated every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday morning with any quest times for the following two days/weekend.Post Thread away, opinions so far?
>>713778Amon has a water element? Oh, yes!!!Thank you for running, Red.
>>713778Thanks for running! Good thread. My only question is how we grew this close to Asa so quickly.
>>713778Thanks for running, I am looking forward to the next one. I really want to rendezvous with Yoru and Rin
>>713778>>713788Good question,Her background is similar to yours, actually. She empathizes quite a bit with you. That said, she's not necessarily close to you. She admittedly thinks you're damaged from the experience at Kikyo Pass, but mainly wants to make sure that you don't go off the deep end for the moment.It was an intimate moment and she's just a well-meaning, motherly woman at heart. Also, she's resourceful and may need protection. The dude who fought off the Seven Swordsmen is around, so >>713785 you can get other summon opportunities if you don't like fish :') >>713826You'll make it to the fire temple by the end of the next thread this week.
>>713785you would like fish, but then again I'd make sure any summon I give is comparable in its own right.
>>713939hell yeah, getting koi fish summons. We might need the balance if we have mad monk inside us.>>713964whale summons would be rad too.
>>713778Ah man, I missed the entire thread. At least I couldn't mess up anything like last time I guess.>>713964 Still looking for you Parry Hotter. I'll teach how to actually play Dark Souls.
>>713964Fuck yiss mutha fuckin sky whales and koi fish
>>714303thread probably tomorrow or tuesday, so no worries Parry Hotter still wrecking on PC bruh
>>714591Shit I'm a poorfag and only have a PS4 and a shitty 4 year old laptop. You win this time, Parry Hotter! Though I'm pretty sure my quality faith build is utter garbage for pvp. I just like using any weapon I want to.
>>714539I can always present other summon options over the quest if you don't like these.>>714651Sunlight straight sword or bust
>>713964But I want fish! Does that include other sea life?
>>714801Can't beat Darkmoon Blade swag. It's not like it matters since armor and thus damage absorption is next to useless. They both add the same amount of attack, just different kinds. And I kinda like fish too. It might be hard to use since we're not Kisame and have near limitless amounts of chakra to make water. We could use seals of some kind though.
>>714805Basically it's just fish with whales at the top of their summon list. Sharks are another summon altogether, as is octopus, etc
>>714892What's Amons chakra nature?
>>714892Oh, yeah!It would be rad if Amon could summon sharks and octopi/squid as well. I would be happy with fish and whales.
>>714892I personally think aquatic summons aren't so great
>>714914I was assuming water given we picked his homeland. If you all would like to roll for it, I'd fit it in the future. >>714927Figured the Koi/Fish would be a good fit, or at least a good initial first guess
>>714944Stay with water.
>>714944I'm fine with water but I'd also being willing to roll for it. We might get something cool. Like Stellar. How hard did you just shit yourself until you realized Wargle isn't doing crits?
>>714964I think he already planned it I don't remember rolling for it.>Not wanting to summon the Deep Blue Sea to crush our enemies.
>>714944Water sucks. Least interesting chakra nature for sure. We use more seals than anything else though so it's not a big deal.
>>714978Like I said I'm fine with water and like fish summons (since that's never really been done in Naruto before) but I can't resist gambling on this since we might get something awesome.Also I don't think you need your natural element to match up with summons. I'm not 100% on that though.
>>715019Your natural element doesn't need to.See: Naruto and frogs
>>714985Seals are the game breaker, as they can eventually alter the elements of chakra and/or break it down. Your nature will only matter with initial techniques, early on with your summons, and with kekkei genkai, really. Imagine having a scroll that can absorb fire jutsu, but you can store anything it catches for later and alter it into a water technique. Or you could absorb chakra outright from someone to power a jutsu of your own.The greatest sealing sages mastered the elements and chakra at a fundamental level. This was to the point that they could mould chakra into elements inside another persons body or hamper their attempts to do so.
>>716342Oh that's epic. Messing up someone's chakra as they try to use it could be so effective. Especially if they try to use a fire technique, since we might be able to make the chakra go off in their stomach like a bomb instead of turning into fire.
I'm up for a spontaneous thread, but I wouldn't be able to post frequently I'm at work
>>718071I'm here too.
Good to see you here, thread in about 15 minutes
A summoning contract?You haven't seen one before. But, you remember Myatsuu used to tell you stories of the great beasts that lived in the world. Maybe Asa could tell you more about this? You have been out of touch with a lot of things. Asa continues to inspect the contract, "this thing looks pretty worn out. Wh- ugh!"She drops the scroll exasperated, her hands wet and chest wet. Looks like there was some water in the scroll.You pick it up from the blankets and see it is somewhat...wet on the inside, as if someone spilled water on it. Faded on a corner of a page is a single, nearly washed-away signature. "Forget what I said about the reading, I'm just going to go work off this stress with a little training.">Ask to train with Asa>Get Asa to explain summoning contracts a bit more>Spend your time looking over the fish scroll while she is away>Read/look over something else in your bag>Write in

A summoning contract?You haven't seen one before. But, you remember Myatsuu used to tell you stories of the great beasts that lived in the world. Maybe Asa could tell you more about this? You have been out of touch with a lot of things. The recent events have left you a little overwhelmed, too much so for your still-hazy thoughts to handle. Asa is comforting enough, though you feel as though you should be taking care of her and not the other way around...She cares though, for whatever reason. It seems like everything was starting to fall apart. Asa was there when you needed someone.Wait...You call out to Asa, walking back into the treeline. "Asa! Have you seen any friends? One is a girl, shoulder length brown hair. She has a Konoha headb-"Asa seemingly doesn't hear what you say and disappears through the trees.Well, you'll just have to ask when she returns then.You groggily remember Rin's headband. She still needs that, you'll have to find them as soon as possible. They're probably worried sick about you. Passing the thoughts from your head, you turn your attention back to the scroll. You roll through the initial section, on which there looks to be a compact string of seals, and check the largest, nearly blank section. The signature, accompanied by what looks like what's left of a hand print of dried blood, seems to be almost washed away by both time and moisture. It almost looks like someone hit the scroll with a wet object. The thought of someone slapping the scroll with a wet fish briefly crosses your mind. Well, despite that there seems to be some writing along the bottom, though it is barely legible as is. "Winged King of the Seas, Yu-Kiang"On closer inspection, the blank pages have a light, scaled pattern to them. >Write your name in a blank space on the scroll>Do not write your name on the scroll& >Attempt to decipher and replicate the seals inside the summoning contract (You can make your own later)>Attempt to alter the seals in the contract >Put the book down, read something else

You feel a jolt of pain up your side as you reach into your pack for your brush. Asa did think you had some broken bones. You guess you may have healed by some power of the beads though. You sign your name in the space on the contract, carefully avoiding the larger wet spots so as to not let the ink bleed. Your name, ink still wet and glistening, shines back from the scroll. Your signature is a bit messier than you'd like, but you expected that anyway. You look at the signature next to yours. Right, the handprint!You bite a finger and coat your palm in the trickle of blood. The scroll feels particularly slimy as you gingerly stick your hand onto it, afraid to breakthe soaked paper. Done! Your name looks quite nice on that, actually. You adjust the scroll back to the seal as you bandage your finger. Time to figure you out....>Roll 1d100, first threeSummoning Contract (0/400)

The process to unseal is simple enough to be done immediately.]...You could use a little bit more time with this one.The seal has some patterns you haven't read before. The structure implies some sort of transposition and binding of matter...which is entirely new to you. You copy down a heavily simplified version of the seal and study that for a bit. The theory you manage to come up with is it would seem that, alone, this seal acts to store physical objects inside of it. You could probably keep most of your items in a scroll for storage, if you'd wanted to. You wonder if this could be modified to store something less solid, like a jutsu? Seems like it could be useful. For now, you understand the accompanying seals on the contract seem to change the properties of this one. You'll have to figure it out a little later while you think this over. Maybe Asa would help you...(1/2)
You figure you'll go ask her in a little bit, but she did seem upset herself a little earlier. ...you'll give her a bit longer to cool off and be alone, she deserves that at the least for how much she's helped you- for having the strength to forgive you. The thought of her hand brushing across the side of your face suddenly makes you a little lightheaded.

The fish scroll was a pleasant surprise, so....You peel open the neaby scroll covered in an intricate web of designs. [i]...the fuck you say to me, you fucking genin? I'll have you know I graduated top of the academy in all of my subjects have over 300 confirmed bingo book assassinations. I-[/i]You've got to be kidding me. Is this just angry hatemail? You continue to read through the long scroll and note that the narrative changes almost randomly to other topics, with no rhyme or reason. It's actually quite confusing and there seems to be continual, deliberate mispronunciation and misspellings throughout. You get the feeling there is more to this scroll than meets the eye, but for now it only serves to befuddle you.[Intelligence Required to Decrypt: 4/6](1/2)

Myatsuu's Broken Book [356/500][Threshold Met! (350/500)][Technique Learned: Earthen Seal: Hear-No-Evil Technique[This seal is applied similarly to the See-No-Evil Technique. Multiple tags can be painted with this seal. When stuck to multiple individuals, the connection between the seals allows a sort of rudimentary telepathic communication through chakra. Capable of long distance, but the seal is easily disrupted or removed. Ineffective when painted on, strangely enough.]
>>719062Neat. We should give one to Asa.
You read your late master's text, your eyes pourover the scratches of ink all around the damaged center while you transcribe the notes into the back of your journal. It seems Myatsuu had continued to build on the premises of the previous techniques. This one, the Hear-No-Evil seal, seems to allow nonverbal communication. You make a note to stick one on Rin and Yoru next chance you get, maybe Asa too. You're not trying to lose everyone, after all. Speaking of which, you'd been meaning to ask Asa a few questions. The sky is painted in colors of yellow and blue, it's around noon. She should be fine by now.Leaning on the Wen Qu, you stumble to your feet and shuffle into the woods.It isn't long before you stumble along a path of upturned dirt. Following it uphill for a bit, your ears meet the sound of crashing waters. You shuffle ahead through the bushes and find a waterfall along the side of the rock face of the small mountain. The crashing waters have collected in a somewhat large, clear pool. Bathing in it, oblivious to your arrival, is a......oh...she's...not wearing any clothes.You feel blood rushing to your face and jump behind a nearby tree. That was...well then. You don't think Asa would take too kindly to you walking in on her. You hear her talking about something, probably to her rabbit.

>>719248Eh, yeah I suppose. Amos wouldn't want her getting the wrong idea. I'll change to this too.

You swear, if it wasn't for your morals...You put on your best act and call out into the woods around you "Asa? Are you there? Is that a waterfall?!"From behind the tree you hear rapid splashes and the sound of rustling clothing. Well, good thing you found her and not someone more nefarious. After a minute or two, you stroll out from behind the tree one hobbling step at a time to Asa, damp and sitting on a flatter rock near the pool. She gives you a look over as she wrings out water from her messy cerulean hair. "You look in better shape already- only after a few hours too. I'm starting to wonder what exactly they make you monks out of. How do you feel?""Like a wet piece of paper, honestly." Asa's rabbit bounces over to you and starts to nibble on your pants. He's pretty cute actually. You rub the rabbit under his chin only for it to raise a little paw and smack your hand away. It horrifies you as it then speaks with an ungodly deep voice, "Permission to pet denied, human." Asa sighs and picks up the bunny, who responds with a burble as she cuddles it. She looks at you apologetically, "Usagi doesn't like strangers, sorry.""Was there something you wanted to ask me?">Where are my friends>Can you teach me more about the summoning contract?>I didn't mean to hurt you at Kikyo pass, I'm sorry.

>>719384TRAINING POST #2 BOYOSWE MADE IT
>>719390I've been waiting for gains for a whi- OH MY GOD THE SHOCK THAT ALL PF OUR MONK BROTHERS AND SISTERS ARE DEAD JUST HIT ME
>>719419I was around when we found them. It was actually really sad. Lady did a good job writing it.
>>719430I was destroyed for a week when my mom died. I don't know how Amon is doing so well with having his entire family die
>>719441Probably because he's a monk. All life is cyclical and all.
>>719441I think it's because of Yoru and Rin he had to keep them safe. Maybe that's what has been holding him together so far.
You sit down across from Asa. "I just wanted to thank you for taking me in like this, doing everything you have for me. I'm just wondering...why? Why are you treating me like this?"Asa gives small smile and looks away towards the reflective pool. For a few moments, the only sound is the contented noises of the bunny as she pets it. "You...reminded me of someone from a long time ago, is all. I couldn't have left you to die there. We both like to follow our conscience, is all."You remind Asa of someone? You don't think you've ever met anyone that would know her, let alone look like you. "I...remind you of someone? Who?"She nods, "Yes, Amon. As crazy as it may sound...you remind me of my sister. Maybe even a little bit of myself too, if I was honest."So, she has a sister."She can't be too bad then. Will we be meeting up with her sometime? She can come with Yoru, Rin, and I!"Asa shakes her head, "No...I don't think she would want to even if she could, Amon. She's dead, after all."The waterfall breaks upon the rocks below as you process what you were just told. She doesn't look at you and continues to play with the bunny in her lap. As the sound of rushing waters continues to fill your ears, you remember a similar sound......The mountain stream at Kikyo Pass, stained red with the blood of your monk brothers. They're gone, all dead. Like Asa's sister. Asa looks up, her eyes drier than yours. "I like to think she's in a better place though. It's probably more peaceful for her wherever she is. Anything is better than fighting in the wars as another ninja."Rin and Yoru have probably left.You're all alone. All that is left of the life you knew is gone, forever. "Y-Yes, A-all life is connected..." You manage to choke out. You feel a tear run down your cheek. "It flows like water. Death is...death..."You can't finish as the lump in your throat swells. As you start to apologize and get up to leave, you feel arms around you in a hug. "Shhh, it's okay. You've lost a lot, I understand. You're not alone in this, you have me," Asa whispers soothingly in your ear.You feel ashamed as another tear drips down your cheek. You feel ashamed for being consumed yet again by your emotions. You feel ashamed expressing your weakness in front of this girl, who you had hurt in the first place.But you don't break her hold. Neither does she.For a few moments, you sit in quiet as the throbbing in your chest slowly relaxes. After a little while longer, you stand from her gentle embrace. "Thank you, Asa"She smiles at you with a nod. Usagi nuzzles against your leg- probably as his own way of comforting you. (1/2)
"I need to know, Asa. Where are my friends?""That way," Asa points towards the Northeastern Horizon. "Towards the Fire Temple as of early this morning. They were travelling alongside a swordsman with long, black hair- quite well kept I might add. You were still injured and resting, so I wanted to wait before telling you."Hunh, seems like she's already on top of things. Why was Hoki travelling with Yoru and Rin? Maybe they just needed extra protection once you disappeared. Asa plucks her bowstring and inspects several of the crevices in the bow. She's a kunoichi, so maybe she could help you train?You suggest this briefly to her. After a bit of consideration, she agrees. Though she's not sure how much she can help someone with your speciality.Training (pick 2):>You train your body with Asa as your coach.

>>719633It also appears voting has shit itself. Took more than 2 minutes for this to show up.I'm gonna try testing it.
You strip from your shirt, leaving yourself in just your baggy cloth pants in preparation to training. Asa looks you up and down- an odd look on her face- before she points over to the waterfall and tells you to stand under it. She calls out something to the rabbit, Usagi, and you see it nod. Abruptly, Usagi explodes in size with a puff of smoke- now nearly a head taller than you.That's a big rabbit.With a squeak uncharacteristic to its size, it rams repeatedly into a tree until it falls with a resounding crash. It crushes the two ends and the branches off and picks up the ragged segment of log that is left. Walking up to the waterfall, it holds it out for you impatiently. They don't actually expect you to..."You need to put it over his shoulders, Usagi. We're not your size, remember?" Asa calls.Oh man they were serious. This is how you die, getting crushed with a tree by a giant, fluffy, white bunny.At least you- UMPF. Usagi- not so carefully- plops the log onto your back and walks away nochalantly. The roaring waters overhead push down onto the log with even greater force, making the weight nearly unbearable. "Now, mister mighty monk..." Asa gives a dirty grin. "...squat."(Strength Increases by .5)(1/2)

You cannot feel your legs.You cannot believe you managed to even survive that. Training like that would leave even Tai walking with a limp. This woman is unbelievable."Decent job, I'd expected you to quit after the first time you fell over. The fact you finished all 12 sets is pretty impressive, I'd say! Points to whoever trained you physically." She teases you, still soaking wet from the experience. "Thanks, Tai would probably appreciate that"Asa motions you closer as she goes over the basics of the Summoning Jutsu. Apparently, the contract is the hardest part of the technique. Well, that and the raw chakra needed to summon anything. She looks at you as if you were crazy when you start talking about how you're reverse engineering the summoning contract seal. "That's...wow, I guess you are good at sealing. That would be more than any normal person- even a ninja- would be capable of creating. You need to have another creature sign the contract though for it to work though...though you probably understand it better than me now."She clasps her hands together in a seal for a moment and Usagi disappears in a puff of white smoke. "Now, let me show you how this works."She bites her thumb and forms a few basic hand seals. She slams her hand on the ground in front of her, "Ninja Art: Summoning Jutsu!"Usagi is back with a poof, standing upright and at attention. "Now you try, Amon!"You nod to her and go towards the waterfall pool. If you're going to summon fish, it might as well be near water, right?Though...you're worried this small amount of water won't be enough for the "Winged King of the Seas, Yu-Kiang" you read earlier...Gulp."N-Ninja Art: Summoning Technique!" You cry as you slam your palm into the poolside mud. A puff of white smoke covers your sight, but as it clears you see...
A lone golden fish, floating in the waters by the shore. It opens its mouth and a bubble bloops out. It looks around at the waters surrounding it before it cocks its head at you, expectantly. Seems oddly intelligent...Usagi pokes his head around your leg, curious himself what you summoned. You...>Try to grab the fish>Talk to the fish (say what?)>Show the fish the scroll you signed>Throw the fish the remains of your food from earlier>Write in

>>719713Also, Lady, how much longer are you planning on running? I can feel myself starting to crash.
You think for a minute, maintaining the staring contest with the golden fish. How do you say hello in fish? You think you may have an idea...You poke Usagi below your knees and whisper into his floppy ear. He hops off to your pack, rummages around, and hops back with the remnants of your meal from before. Thanking the small rabbit, you take out a small amount of meat and rice and look back to the fish, still floating in the pool."Hello, fish-sama. It's an honor to meet you. Do you want some food?" You hold out the treat over the pond so it catches the fish's eye.It let's out a few more bloops in surprise and swims up to the surface, poking its head out of the water......and continues on, swimming out of the pool and into midair. Its body still undulates as if swimming through water as it floats up to your hand and catches the food into its open mouth with a single bite- completely oblivious to the shock on everyone's faces around it. It looks up to you when it finishes, smiling. "How well mannered you are, Land Dweller-kun! This one would not have expected such respect from a stranger. Even thinking to put her in water, how polite!"The fish "swims" around your head smoothly, as she continues to speak in a velvet, feminine voice. "She wonders how the young land-walker brought her here, but for such a welcome she can only blush!"She floats by your face, fins fluttering, "This one's name is Kichijōten, but as a reward the Land-kun may call her Goldie!"*******************************************That's all for today, I'll probably run tomorrow or later this week.

>>719754Thank you for running.
>>719754Being able to summon entire hoards of these guys would be pretty fucking dope for a final attack. Let's save that for if/when we become a sage
>>719754Pretty dope. Thanks for running Lady. I'm off to bed now, it's nearly 4am.
>>719754Nice we can call it Goldie. Thanks for running Red
>>719761There are certainly hordes of fish for you to summon. Just remember, there's always a bigger fish...Unless you summon the biggest fish.
>>719765Nah see that's the problem. Everyone is always trying to summon the biggest dudes. But remember what our master taught us, red lady...
>>719765Leviathan?Besides that, let's work our way up the ladder.
>>719770Spoken like a true monkMyatsuu would be proud :')
>>719754Dope as hell, getting summons early will allow us to get to know them better. Crashing now.
>>719779But seriously what exactly did our master say? Something about all the drops in the ocean working together to make it work or something. Anyway you got the point, a mass of fish fighting another giant summon looks so dope in my head. Like just imagine them flying through the air with Amon controlling them like a water bender would
>>719781Thanks for participating!
>>719788If frogs and demon foxes are practically the size of small mountains...imagine a whale. Dude is big enough to practically terraform by moving. Amon's got way too little chakra to summon the beast though, it'd probably kill him if he tried now.
>>719795Of course! It would be suicide to summon him.
>>719731It'd take a bit more than that to burn Red out of Qm-ing. I'm in Ninja Monk Quest until its inevitable conclusion
How does that fish fly, anyway?The thought keeps crossing your head as you travel down the cluttered forest path; Goldie has seemed content to simply flow back and forth in midair around both you and Asa for the past few hours. While Goldie did seem cute at first, her constant upbeat demeanor is starting to agitate you. "Just dismiss her, she won't even realize it," Asa had whispered to you. You couldn't do that to her though, she hasn't really done anything wrong. In fact, she's been nothing but delightful the entire time...just a bit too delightful. You don't want to be mean to your first summon...Finally, you think you've come up with a solution to pin down the fish."Goldie"The golden fish twists in the air to face you, "You've called for her, Amon-kun?">Stay by my side for a moment. Tell me about where you are from.>I was thinking you could scout ahead. What are your abilities, by the way?>Are there any other fish you know that can fly?

Stay by my side for a moment, Goldie. Tell me about where you are from.Goldie drops by to your side. "Oh, this one would love that! But where should she start..."Asa gives you a look, "How about where you are from?"Goldie does a small twirl with a giggle. "Oh of course! She comes from the Southern Seas, near what Amon-kun would call the Land of Oceans. The shrine of the Sea Sages is down there also on a small island!"The Sea Sages? You look at Goldie quizzically, but have to end up asking for her to notice. "Oh, the great Sea Sages? Amon-kun, don't tell me you didn't know?" You think the fish pouts in her own fishy way, as she continues, "The Sea Sages have circled each other since the beginning of time itself! This one believes they are more than just fish. It is said they granted visions and great power to the last Land-Dweller to visit them, but Goldie wasn't around then."So fish have their own sages? You wonder how in the world you could get there, though. Not only that, what kind of power could they have?"She misses the waters back home dearly, Amon-kun. The waters feel so warm on her scales!">Ask Goldie about the powers of fish summons>Ask about the name you read earlier, Yu-Kiang>How many of you are there?

>>722248*Land of SeasThe typos begin
>>722260I'll back these choices.
>>722248>>Ask Goldie about the powers of fish summons>>Ask about the name you read earlier, Yu-Kiang
You ask Goldie how she is floating, legitimately curious. "We Fish are able to not only sense and detect chakra, but can swim through it! She is most happy when riding a very strong chakra current, though water is always quite comfortable."So the fish you summon can float in the ambient chakra around you?You wonder what would happen if there wasn't any chakra in the environment. What if it was drained, would Goldie dry out?Regardless, you ask a bit more. "So all the Fish can swim through chakra. Do you all have any other interesting talents, Goldie?""Some friends she knows are amazing! Some know how to share chakra, others can scare away big predators by tricking them. Goldie's best friend knows how to make things out of water!""What about Yu-Kiang?" You interject the rambling fish. Goldie leaps at the name, spinning in a few circles before coming back to a rest by your side, still jittering with excitement."The King of Kings! Everyone owes His highness for something, even if they haven't seen Him before! He made the oceans! He protects the seas! His is the Will that shapes the law of nature!" She praises with an alarming fervency. Yu-Kiang...made the oceans? This sounds a bit far-fetched to be true. You decide to write it off as some sort of propoganda among fish, especially considering her near-crazed response. You decide to take a small step away from the golden fish..."So...anything special you can do, Goldie?""Of course, Amon-kun! Would he like to see?">Yes>No
>>722394>>YesIt can't end TOO bad.... Right?
>>722394>>YesShe is gonna give us a fishy kiss that lets us swim through the air like her. Calling it now
"Sure, let's see it.""Okay, watch me Amon-kun!"Goldie flutters a bit of the way ahead and starts to slightly glow. Can she light up? You suppose that's practical, if not a bit unde-The last thing your eyes see is Goldie shining brighter and brighter, reaching the verge of becoming a miniature, floppy sun. Then your vision goes white, completely blinded. "AHHH! WHAT THE HELL!" Asa cries out from somewhere next to you. A crashing noise and the string of curses that follow tell you she's faring about as well as you right now. Damn, your eyes HURT. You think they're open but you still only can see a piercing white light. You try to stumble forward to Goldie, but your foot catches on something in the undergrowth and you go tumbling head-over-heads down an incline. As you contine to fall, Asa's brazen cursing about "Goddamn Glow Fish" and "Fresh Sushi" rings in your ears. With a *whack*, you crack your head against an object.Dazed, you sit for a few moments. The few moments start to drag into minutes. The minutes seem to tick ever longer with the throbbing of your head. You spiral into unconsciousness.(1/2)
>>722544Damn it, Goldie!
>>722544It was that bad. It really was that bad.
Your eyes open slowly, still remembering the throbbing pain from the flare. What you see isn't the blinding light though. It isn't even the forest. Shallow waters pool around your feet and back in the basin around you. It's dark, so dark in fact that you cannot see the other end of the corridor before you. You rise to your feet, taking your back off of the clammy stone wall you were propped on. The air is moist and thick. Where...are you?"Asa? Yoru? RIN?"Nothing."GOL-"Actually, on second thought you'd rather not. You...>Go to the left or right>Look around you in the waters, see if you can find anything>Move forward>Write in

>>722597>Look around you in the waters, see if you can find anythingYou feel for your pack, maybe you can...Your pack in no longer on your back. You feel only the Golden Wen Qu with your groping hands. It must have dropped somewhere in the water is all, you reason. You start to sift through the shallow waters when something cuts your hand. "OW, what..." You begin, but stop once you bring up the object into sight. Slivers of crushed, clear glass.Shredded, red, wet ribbons of cloth with symbols traced along their body. >>722598>Re summon Goldie so you can use her as a source of lightYou bite your thumb and call out the jutsu once again, "Ninja Art: Summoning Technique!"Your voice reverberates through the stone cave. Nothing happens.>Writing
>>722696Oh, it's not Goldie. It's not Goldie at all.I don't think I like this ride, Lady. I want off.
>>722696Ah shit the red beads got us. Yeah I have no clue what to do
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g-T2IrkXZMMYou press forward through the corridor, your breath visible as mist in the bone-chilling cold. The water sags around your feet as you trudge through, as if trying to pull you back. You walk.The rock walls start to expand ever slightly, but it only gets cooler and more damp. You walk more...The corridor ends, expanding into an impenetrable inky blackness so deep you can almost feel it oozing across your shoulders. There has got to be some sort of exit here. If you got in, you must be able to get out. Looking at the walls behind you, you see they arc out into the inky blackness. You think the room you are in is circular, if you had to guess. The shallow waters continue to lap around your feet. You...>Go Left>Go Right>Go Forward>Write in

>>722775Well we would have to place the seals, but it might be worth trying.
>>722775I don't really see how that would help this situation
You decide to go right, using the outer wall as a guide in the darkness. The sloshing of water seems to be the only sound in the cavern, besides the ever-louder echoes of your own heartbeat. Every step you take, your eyes play another trick on you. At first you think you see movement in the darkness, but realize it was nothing more than your own ripples in the water. Then your hand loses the wall briefly, as if it had shifted, only for you to find it a second later. This place feels...alive.You begin to think the heartbeats you hear are not just your own, but strike the thought from your head. You just need to find the exit.You just need to find the exit.You just need to find the...Your hand meets moist air and you turn to find a large gap in the stone walls. There are massive metal bars lined up into the towering ceiling. This looks almost like a.... a prison? Hey, BoyA cold fear grips your heart in an instant. You freeze on the spot. The voice, quiet and gutteral, rumbles from inside the bars in front of you. You, Boy.

>>722955He knows the beads fucked him up somehow, thus they're bad. And he knows this place is connected to the beads. Ergo, they're bad.
You walk towards the bar door of the prison cell, the water slowly turning to tar as you get closer. Yes....Good. Very good, boy Now, REMOVE THE SEALa small column of the thick, tar-like water rises up from under you, lifting you to the middle of the cell door.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sge4ORNuySAThe seal is nothing short of a masterwork- Godly, even. Its designs- larger than you- are intertwined and layered upon each other across the entirety of its hefty dimensions. The blood with which is seems to have been written in glistens as if freshly written. The patterns and symbols in the art seem to weave together a meaning beyond just a concept or structure, closer to a work of epic poetry in purest form. This is beyond your imagination, let alone your capabilities. This would be nothing short of a life's work, a masterpiece of expression, in your eyes. Hurry up, boy. I don't have all dayYou chat absent-mindedly with the thing. "Are you in a rush? I can't see you would have anything to do here..." Don't play GAMES with me boy or you will see your OWN TIME RUN THINThe voice snarls like thunder. You smell rotten meat in the clouds of vapor eminating from the cage. You shake your head. "I'm sorry, but this seal is bey-"GRRRAHHH!Screams from the inside of the cage as massive claws rip into the gaps between the iron bars in front of you. The cell bars crash against the monster and the cavern shudders from the blow as you go flying back into the inky black from its force. Get BACK HERE, BOY!I WILL CRUSH YOUR BONES BETWEEN MY TEETH! The monster bellows across the cavern, the roars echoing across the basin magnify it tenfold. You look up from the water you were tossed back into to find yoursef in the midst of an abyss. You cannot see a wall.You cannot see the cell.You cannot see an end. There is no way out. You walk, the beast's voice still echoing.You walk...(1/2)
...the dark parts slightly, or perhaps you grow accustomed to it. In those depths, you see them twinkling in the black. You run towards them, but stop as you approach and see they are being worn.The Red Beads dangle from around the neck of a bearded monk, sitting cross-legged with hands clasped in meditation.

>>723264Who he is, and his significance to Amon, we have had dreams of him before
"W-who...are...you?" The water around the man begins to ripple outwards in small waves. Droplets rise from the surface and float in the air around you. WHO ONE IS, IS MEANINGLESS. WHAT ONE SHALL BECOME, EVERYTHINGIN MY TIME I WAS BISHAMON, YOUNGEST AND LAST OF THE 5 GATES. WHAT I SHALL BECOME, IS JUSTICE ETERNAL"What evil and justice are you talking about? What needs to banished?" You yell at the man, his aura growing thicker around the space. TO WHAT NAME OF EVIL ANY WOULD SPEAK OF. TO THAT WHICH YOU CHOOSE BLINDNESS...LIFE. IS IT NOT IN THE NATURE OF ALL LIFE, FROM THE SMALLEST INSECT TO THE LARGEST BEAST, TO CONSUME?You blink. You're no longer in the dark prison cistern. You stand before the old warrior, surrounded by smouldering wood and metal. Thatched straw burns in a nearby farmhouse, covered in shuriken and kunai. THE NINSHU IS THE BED OF ALL LIFE, THE FLOW OF CHAKRA BETWEEN ITS MULTIPLE FORMS TO LIVE IS TO CONSUME. TO CONSUME IS TO KILL. THE NINSHU IS NOT A BED, BUT A GRAVE. AN ENDLESS CYCLE OF BIRTH AND REBIRTH, DEATH AND CONSUMPTION. A crying child, no older than four, is collapsed before two larger bodies lying still on the ground in death. His village burns around him as the sounds of clashing metal and battle ring among the flames. HAVE YOU NOT EXPERIENCED ITS RAVAGING TOUCHES YOURSELF? YOU KNOW ITS NATURE KEENLY(1/2)
LIFE IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sge4ORNuySAAnother blink. You stand in Kikyo pass with the monk, surrounded by the seven swordsmen.

WITH THE BEADS...I WILL BECOME IT.You stand in the Water Temple shrine, the old monk kneeling with a staff in front of him. Incense trails around the room and seems to choke the air from your lungs. WITH THIS WRETCHED POWER, I WILL REWRITE THIS WORLD ANEW AS A GOD. I WILL ERASE THE STAINS OF THIS EXISTENCE AS AN ABSOLUTE POWER. The monk rises. A POWER TO ENFORCE RIGHTEOUSNESS.

>>723552I would like to tack on the following.Perhaps in loss you found this philosophy. If it was, I'm truly sorry, however you cannot blame absolutely everything for taking those who you held dear. I have lost much, I know it's pain deeply, but to lose myself to it would be to spit upon those who are gone.
>>723558>>723562Fuck. This is why I hate writing on phones.
You glower at the monster before you."You're not Myatsuu. You're not fit to wear his face, let alone try to take his place. I would never disprespect his legacy by helping your senseless murder and destruction." You draw the Wen Qu. Planting it by your side, it rings clear like a bell through the haze of the shrine. The monk cringes at the sound."No one man, however powerful, can move the world alone. Nobody should control the tides of life. "Just as a drop of water in the ocean moves and -in turn- is carried by that same water that surrounds it, so to is a single man connected to the fate of the Ninshu. All is connected together and flows like water."You bang the Staff again and again the bell rings. Bishamon takes a few steps back, hands over his ears. He no longer look like Myatsuu."All life is conjoined for the better. We've perceived only a small portion, some of us worse than others. But through time itself, the actions of greater and lesser men have rippled eternally.There is hope in the form of the sung and unsung heroes. In the people who believe in us, trust us, love us, and help us.""Despite your pointless nihilism and arrogance to believe all life a waste, it will grow stronger!"Another ring, the scene changes to the Water Temple Gates, where you had first met Yoru and Rin.Myatsuu..."Perhaps it was from a loss that you found this empty philosophy. If it was, I'm sorry. However, you cannot blame the world for taking those who you held dear.I have lost almost...everything. I know this pain deeply, but to lose myself to it would be to spit upon those who are gone and believed in me!"(1/2)
The scene changes yet again, now you are in the courtyard where you first talked to Myatsuu as a child. You smash the Wen Qu into the floor. Bishamon growls in discomfort at the piercing ring. ...Thank you. For everything."When you look upon the ocean, you are not only looking at drops of water. When you look upon reality, you aren't just seeing the actions of an evil few.This is the truth. This is the heart of the Ninshu." YOU ARE A FOOL TO STAND IN MY WAY. YOU ARE NOT WORTHY TO WIELD THAT STAFF! THERE WILL COME A DAY WHEN YOUR IDEALS CRUMBLE AND YOUR FAITH TURNS TO ASH WITHIN YOUR HEART.KNOW THAT ON THAT DAY, IT WILL BE YOU WHO SEEKS ME OUT***********************************You jolt awake at the feeling of a hand on your chest. "Oh god, you're actually alive"You open your eyes slowly to the stinging light, your eyes still feeling a bit broken from the flare. The first thing you notice is the sky. The second is the giant rabbit carrying you in his arms. With a yelp you nearly fall onto the ground.Asa checks you over anxiously and pokes various spots across your body."How are you feeling?""Do you remember your name?""Does that hu-"OUCH , that did hurt. You wave her off for a second. "Where are we?""We're almost at the Fire Temple, I actually see it right ahead. You were badly concussed from the fall and bruised all over, I had Usagi carry you."(2/3)
You help yourself up and out of the rabbit's arms and begin to crutch along with the Wen Qu. The thoughts of the...vision, or whatever it was, weigh heavily enough upon your shoulders. You didn't need another crippling injury on top of it. The Gates of the Fire Temple...majestic and vast. They're a seal of their own catagory and are said to be impenetrable. You...> Knock> Try painting another seal on top of it?> Try funneling chakra into it somehow> Write in
>>723709>> Try funneling chakra into it somehow
>>723709>Try funneling chakra into it somehow
>>723709>Write inTalk to Asa some. How is she doing? Where did our fishy friend go after we got knocked out? Is she ok from the whole blinding light thing?
>>723725>>723718>>723715funnel a go go>>723724I'll add it
You hum in thought for a minute. If you remember the stories correctly, which is likely, you recall that the Fire Temple monks had designed the seal so that only monks could open it. You turn to Asa, about to ask for ideas and catch her with an upset look for a second before she notices, switching back to a smile."Hey, what's up? Something wrong?""No, not at all. I'm fine. I...I just think I'm going to look around for another entrence."She gives you a warm smile and a little wave. "I'll see you around!" She walks across the exterior wall with Usagi, probably looking for footholds or such.You shake your head. Good luck with that, this is the only way in. Though the way she phrased that sounded pretty odd. You turn back to the gate and place your hands on it, pouring chakra into it. Nothing happens. "Cmon, not here..." you groan, flooding it with chakra. You need to get in to see them. Your friends, the people who trust you- believe in you. Love you. With them, life is truly precious. You push in chakra from the depths of your being.....And with a thunderous creak, the doors slowly swing open. "Asa, I did it! Come look!""Asa?"You look over to where the kunoichi once was, only to see nobody there. Your heart slowly drops. "I'll see you around!Looks like the Blue Huntress strikes again. "AMOOOOOOON," cries a voice, before you're tackled to the ground by an overjoyed Rin. "I knew you were still alive! I knew it!" She cheers, almost crying with joy as she hugs you even tighter. Behind her stands a grinning Yoru, an impressed Hoki, and....
>>723794Rin is cute! CUTE!!!!
"Amon, is....is that you?" A bewildered Tai blinks at you in disbelief from the companions, as if you're another fevered dream. ******************************************************That's it for now.

>>723802Thank you for running, Red.Give him a bro hug
>>723805A mysterious merchant that sells weird things>>723809This is a must.
>>723802Thanks for running Lady. I always forget when there are other posts after the end of session posts.
>>723810Then where the frak is Kabuto?
>>723813 Probably being an entitled little shit somewhere.
>>723813Someone's got to run the store, anon
>>723815Gotcha. Also I thought Tai was among the dead people where we fought the mist ninja. Maybe I misread something somewhere or just assumed that when I saw monk that that included Tai
>>723820Nope, I made sure to mention he wasn't there. He and Sakumo, along with two other monks, didn't stop at Kikyo Pass with the others.
What are everyone's opinions on the quest so far?
>>723834Yeah it's good, it's an interesting viewpoint on the Naruto world
>>723834I love prequels.So, when's the Norihime wedding?
>>723841What're you talking about? Asa is ours.
I actually have a question to the voters then. What is your opinion about the embed music I occasionally include?
>>723834Pretty good, I'm definitely enjoying the hell out of it.It adds a view to the Naruto universe that isn't from the eyes of a Ninja. I'll admit I was a bit disappointed the evil monk's goal wasn't solely revenge against the tailed beasts (probably my fault for making assumptions, since they freaked out and he called Rin a monster and messed with her dreams.) It would've made our struggle with him much more personal once we find out Rin's a jinjuriki, since she's one of 4 or so friends we have left. His worldview pretty much being the exact opposite of ours and Myatsuu's teachings does make it a bit personal, but the struggle against him would have hit much closer to home otherwise.Still, my disappoint is purely from personal preference, and I do mean it when I say I'm enjoying the quest.Also I completely forgot to mention, but I'm this anon>>723080My wifi craps out between 11 and 12 every night without fail and that changes my ID. I have no idea why it does. My provider says they don't know what I'm talking about, so I have no idea what does it. And since the only other option is Comcast I just have to deal with it.
>>723860Honestly I don't listen to it. My cat knocked my laptop off a table a while ago and smashed the headphone jack and the speakers are complete garbage.
>>723865You're the best kind of posterAlso, uhhh...>That entire second paragraph...you may want to stay tuned, boss.
>>723858I knew someone would want to cuck Yoru before it's cucking eventually. I kinda want to try just to see if we can. I honestly don't think I wouldn't if we were given the chance.
>>723871Oh, I get it now. I'm making assumptions again, it seems like I always make a mistake when I do that.But saying that I'm making another assumption. I guess I'll have to take all my ideas with a couple grains of salt and not forget the old ones.
>>723860I listen to it and I think it helps. It sets the tone and mood for the next part of the story. I say keep doing it.
>>723881Thanks for the feedback!>>723873>cucking YoruShe's single bro
Thanks for running Red! I enjoyed the ending especially seeing Tai again.
>>723858Monks can't be distracted by worldly things.
>>723912 Goddamn it Lady I don't wanna be That Guy but when you say that it makes me want to be That Guy. It would just be too funny to not try.
>>723912*squints*I see you, Red.
>>724500QM can confirmThat is, in fact, meShe's singleprobably not ready to mingle yet
>>724500 I'd just like to apologize for what I'm gong to do.The joke is too great to pass up.
>>724401>>723873I might, you better start chasing after her then.Your waifu just ditched you bro>>723794
>>724522She'll show back up. Probably.If not, then the joke was never really there in the first place, so it's cool.
>>724521>>724522I don't mind, honestly- if you think Amon can handle her. Tsuki gets a lot more from her mom than you might think.I don't know if I should be surprised or not, but then again, she's the only grown woman introduced in the quest:^D
>>724559 I just think it would be funny as hell and I really want to see what happens. Is this what people feel like with stuff like the Egg or the Beads?Oh god, I've become a Banished Quest player.
>see fags wanting to waifu Asa>Not wanting to wait until more waifus show up>Not wanting to say "fuck that" and continue to be a chaste monkAlso, I'm scared of that sealed beast we saw before Bishamon.
>>724577That just gave me an even better idea than waifuing Asa to see what happens. Waifuing a tailed beast to see what happens. I really am a Banished Quest player now.
>>724577I like Rin
>>724581You keep that up and I'll waifu your asshole with some red beads.
>>724590EVEN BETTER IDEA Waifu the evil monk. I see why some people are so obsessed with waifuing. It's so fun.
>>724577Chaste monk is best route. Amon needs no bitches.
>>724656Acquire scrolls, refuse bitches.
>>724656>>724659 I'll believe until the day I die that waifuing a tailed beast is the best idea I've ever had.
>>724659>>724656Chaste monk route is always a go >>724582sure>>724592I mean you had the option for that here >>723463
>>725416I figured if I was gonna do something stupid just to see if I could do it, I should go big or go home.>>725434 Amon will never be bottom bitch. He's purely a top.
I hope to remain chaste, but we'll see how many waifus there are and to what degree of quality. Rin's alright, but we'll see if there are any good enough to break vows for.
>>725498But don't you want to steal someone's wife before they can even get married? Or better yet, be the first person in history to have sex with a tailed beast?
>>725508nah senpai, putting the fuck in a tailed beast just sounds like a bad idea. Can you imagine even trying to explain that shit to our friends>Alright guys, don't panic, but you know those ancient sentient engines of destruction which seem to just show up to break everything at the worst time? Well, meet my wife/hubby, s/he's one of them!I don't fucking know how tailed beast genders work.
>>725539I don't either. And I knew since the moment I came up with the idea trying to fuck what's essentially a simi-sentient natural disaster was a bad idea.But why not go where no person has ever gone before? Also this idea made me realize why people like fucking with dangerous things like the Egg in Shinobi quest and the beads so much.
>>725555How would it even work, anyway? None of the tailed beasts have genitalia, or even exhibited any form of sexual behavior or attraction, so, would one even be interested? How does one seduce one that has no vag, and does not have the urge to sex?
>>725576I don't know. Nobody's probably even tried before.
>>725434Also, Red, are we a jinchuriki or whatever? Cuz We saw a sealed beast while in our mindscape, and I am fear.
>>725598Technically...no?They're definitely in there, don't get me wrong. It's just they're not sealed in you, per se. They're bound to The Red Beads, which you never did quite figure out.
>>725667Now for the REAL question. Does tailed beast have vagoo? God I hate myself. This is what I was talking about with the shitposting before. Now I instead of shitposting in a quest thread, I'm shitposting in a quest. I'll probably die shitposting.
>>725667ah, I figured that when the beads broke everything inside it was transferred into us. Ah well, I'm gonna vote to study the beads when we get a chance, so we'll be able to learn this shit in character. Now to just not accidentally release all of them in our studies.>>725683in post thread, anything goes.
>>725702No, I mean the waifuing stuff. I fully intend to try and waifu Asa or a tailed beast just for the laugh it'll give me if it actually works.The only thing that was completely a joke was waifuing the evil monk.
>>725713You do you, man. I'm gonna vote for other shit, probably, but if it does go through and it works somehow, it'll be funny.
