This is Boruto Quest, a quest set in the universe of Naruto. It is during the generation of Naruto's son after everyone has graduated from their Genin exam. I haven't kept up with the series beyond the end of the original one, so this one is intended to recapture the feel of that time of Naruto. I will not be incorporating the main show or the Boruto movie's plot into the quest, although some recognizable characters will be present. You play as a 12 year old Chunin named Takeshi. You have been assigned a Jounin squad leader named Hanto, and your two squadmates are Kichiro, a young delinquent, and Ai, a strange social outcast of a girl. You are of average skill in most aspects, although your sharp intelligence, and your jack of trades skill set have brought you far. You have just recently graduated to a Chunin after winning the final tournament. You've been regularly completing missions as a Chunin, and making progress in training. Currently, you've returning to the mission at hand only to find that your squad has been separated by unseen forces. http://pastebin.com/g44gcuXh
>A cold sweat is forming on the surface of your skin. You feel this as you clench your fist and swallow, a mixture of panic and horror. You manage to shove it all back down inside of you, focusing as hard as you can to scan the immediate area instead of worrying. From what you can see, whatever scuffle happened here was quickly over. There's not much blood or signs of damage to go on. As far as you can tell, the attack was quick and coordinated. Certainly multiple opponents, or else they would have never gotten the drop on everyone at once. Mirai sensei's seat doesn't seem to be disturbed at all. If you had to guess, you'd say that when she leaped to defend the camp the others were flanked. Himawari was directly attacked, but seems to have managed to recover and flee in time. Shinji's book being partially destroyed is the only sign that he's fine. Then there's Akahiko's black fur. A thin trail of it leads off into the woods. All three of your allies seem to have been expertly separated. The still burning coals of the fire tell you that this all happened very recently as well. The blood on Himawari's bedding hasn't even had time to dry, still damp when you press your fingers to it. In the center of the camp, you glare around. As a Chunin, you feel a great deal of responsibility for your subordinates. Who do you want to go help first?>A. Follow Himawari's blood trail>B. Follow Shinji's paper trail>C. Follow Kayo and Akahiko's fur trail
>>761066>B. Follow Shinji's paper trail
>>761066>A. Follow Himawari's blood trail
>>761066>>A. Follow Himawari's blood trail
>>761066>A. Follow Himawari's blood trailOne of these things is the Hokage's daughter.
>>761066>>A. Follow Himawari's blood trailBlood is a bit more important than paper/fur, imo
Seeing as Himawari's trail is made of blood, it takes precedence. Not only that, but you couldn't imagine returning to the Leaf village with the Hokage's daughter being injured or worse. You push the thought from your mind before it can wrap around you, and kick off in a powerful step to go flying. The actual trail of blood only gives you a general idea of what direction to go in, but it's better than nothing at all. In the distance, in various directions, the sounds of combat are playing out. Most notably on the path that you're going. Leaping and weaving through the branches, it doesn't take too much time for you to find yourself in a somewhat open clearing in the center of the forest. Several dozen meters of open freedom in every direction, covered by craters and destroyed rubble. Much of the grass has been completely overturned, making the battlefield difficult to navigate on foot. Stopping at the edge to scan, you immediately spot Himawari.You expected to see her at least somewhat injured, but the scene in front of you is rather surprising. She's in the Gentle Fist's trademark combat stance, with her back to you. Across the field a little bit, you can see some sort of foe. Her opponent is older than both of you by several years, but still clearly a teenager. The skin on his forearms is fiercely scraped and burned, dripping blood.It appears he had a direct run in with Himawari's rotation. The teenager is several inches taller than you, with a lighter shade of brown hair and deeply tanned skin. His hands look leathery, and the ripped flak jacket reveals a stack of powerful, defined core muscles. Obviously a taijutsu fighter of some skill. >A. Run directly out there, and join Himawari in the fight. Ask the man who he is>B. Try to maneuver behind him, and go for a sneak attack with poisoned senbon.>C. Try to maneuver behind him, and use the paralyzing bells. Hopefully Himawari can hold him off long enough for your technique to take effect.>D. Write-in
>>761176>>B. Try to maneuver behind him, and go for a sneak attack with poisoned senbon.
>>761176>B. Try to maneuver behind him, and go for a sneak attack with poisoned senbon.
>>761176>BOh shit hi mini did you're Internet stop shiting itself
As you start to circle around the edge of the field, you become sure that Himawari has spotted you. She doesn't react, but the Byakugan gives her full 360 degree vision. As for her opponent, he seems to be pretty much entirely focused on her. It's trivial to position yourself behind him. In fact, as you're approaching, you can hear him boasting. Despite the fact that he's being snuck up on. "I have to admit it, you're a lot more capable than I would have thought. I really was intending to kill you with that first attack, but you must have sensed that while you were asleep."From here, you can somewhat get a better look at him. There doesn't seem to be any sort of headband or identifying equipment on his person, and he doesn't seem to have much of an accent. What sort of foe is this? The teenager draws his fist back, and drops into a low stance. He slowly swirls his arms around, as if he were doing a tai chi routine. Himawari remains locked in a defensive position, possibly awaiting you. Once you're in place, you cover the needles in poison. Drawing your arm back, you flick three needles at the square of his back.They're all flying on target, perfectly. They impact his skin, making a sharp "clink" and clattering against the grass silently. Just as inten- wait, that's not right..The teenager slowly turns around, and grins. "I was wondering when you'd make your appearance. What, were you taking a piss or something?"You stand up out of your cover, clearly spotted. "Who are you!? Why are you attacking us!?"He holds up a finger and waggles it at you. "See, this is exactly why we're going on the offensive. A certain Chunin has been a key figure in holding up progress for us.." Himawari sharply cries out, and leaps at her foe for an attack. She spins in the air with her arms out, coming down masterfully to strike with both palms. The teenager holds up one hand, and his fist quickly becomes coated in stone. His high block doesn't move a centimeter as Himawari's attack is deflected, a burst of chakra blowing wind over the forest. She flips back, seemingly satisfied. "Takeshi! This opponent is dangerous! He's not like your average cultist!!"A cultist? But this guy's a fit, bronzed brawler type. He's nothing like the pale weirdo's you've encountered so far. The fist turns back into flesh. "My name is Otozawa. Not that it's going to matter to you, soon.." He starts walking directly towards you, menacingly. His fasts hang down at his sides, completely neglecting any sort of guard. Despite leaving himself wide open, your senses are all screaming at you. A warning signal. >A. Throw down a smoke bomb and summon Haze Clones. Leap into the trees and hide.>B. Fire Water Bullets at him>C. Test his ability, engage him using your Wakizashi.>D. Write-in
>>761236Indeed, I switched internet providers. The problem was they went to the wrong house (town, actually) so I had to wait a couple more weeks.

>>761298>Use charka blades to fight himWe need to train them to use and they should cut through his armor
>>761298>>B. Fire Water Bullets at him
>>761324>>761333>>761342It's time to fall back and assess the situation. He's clearly powerful enough to block just about any physical attack that you could throw at him, so you're going to have to analyze this stone-skin technique of his. Can he only cover parts of his body at a time? Is it exhausting to use? A technique that powerful has to have some sort of weakness. You slam a smoke bomb into the ground. A white cloud covers everything in sight, and you use the Haze Clone Jutsu to cover your retreat as you sneak into the forest. Oddly, you don't hear the trademark sounds of your opponent flailing around senselessly in the smoke. In fact, it's dead silent. Peeking from the branches, you watch carefully as the smoke starts to clear. As it does, your foe is simply standing there with his arms crossed. He's paying no mind at all to the several dozen clones in front of him, making you gulp. Himawari yells. "Look out! He can see you!!" You flinch, but it can't be possible. Does he have some sort of Dojutsu? A moment ago his eyes looked-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pV9a4DaxhCsNormal. Full of rage, but normal. His face appears in front of you in an instant, shattering the sensation of security that you had a moment before. Only thanks to using Shunshin to dash directly upward on reaction do you escape. Looking down, you see him casually swipe at the tree branch you were standing on and destroying it. He falls to the ground as you soar into the air. You lull at the peak, looking down in shock. What the hell just happened? Too much is going on at once for you to get your bearings. You're having trouble getting a rhythm started. Suddenly, like spears, tree branches start to fly by you one by one. He's ripping them off and chucking them with incredible accuracy. >A. Use your Wakizashi to deflect. >B. Try to dodge, twisting your body out of the way.>C. Fire down water bullets at him as suppression fire.>D. Call for Himawari's help>E. Write-in

>>761439We don't have that one done, do we?
>>761439>>761457It's not quite finished. It'll be done when you get back from this mission.
In terms of defense, you don't really have many options at the moment. Drawing out your curved blade, you ready yourself as well as you can. The incoming projectiles are difficult to see, and if you were to err here it could very well mean your life. The tension rises as you start to fall faster and faster. The first and second spears simply fly to either side of you, narrowly missing. The third one requires you to, slinging down your short sword in a vertical motion. The tip of your metal hits the tip of the wood, the extreme velocity splitting apart with a thunderous crack. Both halves of the branch fly away from you, as you go spinning wildly out of control from the force.You're launched back towards the forest, and tuck yourself into a ball. After crashing through some branches you reach out with your hands, slapping them against the bark and trying to stick as much as possible. It scrapes against your hands painfully, but you manage to come to a stop.Before you can really take a deep breath of relaxation, you hear the sounds of Himawari's rotation. >A. Attempt to sneak back over to the clearing and observe>B. Rush over as fast as you can, and attack him directly with your fuuma shuriken, using the Shadow Shuriken technique>C.

>>761492>>D. Write-inUse our Aerosol Poison to poison him, if we hit Himawari we can always extract it.
I'm reasonably positive that this guy, being an earth specialized fighter, is sensing the vibrations of out movements through the ground. Could also explain why he isn't looking at us before he attacks; he's just straight up not using his eyes.It's also likely that his ability may work by redirecting force into the ground as well, if that's the case.I don't really have any ideas about how to go about *solving* that issue if that's the case, but I do think that's how this guy works. IC, I'd like if we could check for some evidence of this.>C. Head back to the clearing, and test him with Water Bullets. See how he reacts to a more direct attackI bet he won't see them coming.Attempting to sneak is the worst possible decision.
>>761492>C. Head back to the clearing, and test him with Water Bullets. See how he reacts to a more direct attack
>>761492>C. Head back to the clearing, and test him with Water Bullets. See how he reacts to a more direct attackThe thing that bugs me about quests without dice is that our success depends only on how much the QM agrees with our ideas
>>761519Muddy the earth so he can't use it
>>761540>We succeed based on the intelligence of our ideasSuch a problem.That said, I kinda see where you're coming from, however, this kind of format leads to people actually thinking some instead of just hoping for good rolls.
>>761562Oh, this sounds neat, but I dont think its efficient to use water bullets like that unless we're already aiming at himAs in, if we aim water bullets at him, and if they miss they just happen to muddy the groundWe'd need a dedicated jutsu to muddy ground on its own, as making a forceful water bullet for that is just a waste.
>>761579You come back to the edge of the clearing, and look on to see Himawari and Otozawa in a stand off again. She's panting in exhaustion, and another rotation crater has been added to the field. From what you can see, the two of them seems to be at a stand off in terms of defensive abilities. He's too good for Himawari to close in on, but Himawari has the Byakugan and Rotation to cover her defenses. "Water Bullet Jutsu!" you say quietly, preforming the handsigns. Exhaling sharply, you release three blasts of water directly at him in a slight fan spread. He turns and crosses his arms, spreading his stance and digging his feet into the earth. The center blast hits him directly, and his stony arms deflect it entirely. However, you do notice that he is in fact already injured on the arms. Whatever technique he's using has a moment of start up, meaning he has to be aware of an attack in order to defend against it. Meaning that he has some sort of supplementary technique, to track your position. Himawari rushes at him suddenly, spinning around in an evasive dance. He turns his head back with a smile, and expertly fires jabs into her rhythmic sways. She's knocked out of her movement and thrown off balance. He swings his leg up high into the air.He's going to hit her with an axe kick.>A. Use Shunshin to dash forward at high speed and latch onto his leg. Hopefully knock him down.>B. Take out your kunai and use shunshin to dash at him. Expect him to block a punch, but then hit his exposed flesh with a knife. >C. Use the Shadow Shuriken Jutsu along with the Fuuma shuriken>D. Write-in
>>761579>>761608woops didn't mean to quote you anon
>>761608>C. Use the Shadow Shuriken Jutsu along with the Fuuma shuriken
>>761492>A. We need more info. Somehow Himawari was able to hurt him and doesn't seem to be hurt herself.or maybe...>D. Henge into an owl. If he's sensing vibrations from the ground, don't touch the ground....that didn't work so well last time I suggested it, though.
>>761608>C. Use the Shadow Shuriken Jutsu along with the Fuuma shurikenI do wonder if we can 'fake' vibrations in the ground with false sound to disorient him. That is of course assuming he is indeed tracking vibrations in ground.
>>761608>C. Use the Shadow Shuriken Jutsu along with the Fuuma shurikenI still think Aerosol Poison would work well on this guy.
>>761608>CIf we somehow put false sound on him we could fuck up the vibrations
>>761608>C. Fuuma Shadow Shuriken jutsu!>>761622Ignore this. I was late, and see? It would have been a bad idea again.
>>761608>>C. Use the Shadow Shuriken Jutsu along with the Fuuma shuriken
You draw out the Fuuma shuriken from your back, and flip both of them open with a sharp 'schwing'. Spinning around for momentum, you fire off both of the fan-like blades. The second hidden completely in the shadow of the first, with a little Ninjutsu and timing. Before you've even let go, he's looking in your direction. Somehow he's able to read the preliminary movements of your attack. The blades are flying forward, and his leg is still in the air. In his momentary distraction, Himawari rolls out of the way just in time to dodge the axe kick.There's an explosion of dust around him, and as it clears you see an interesting sight. Both of the Fuuma shuriken have clattered to the ground. That more or less settles it, he's able to read your movements before you attack. Without even looking. Himawari has scrambled away from him, rolling off the ground and firing off a shuriken. You notice that as she hits the ground to roll, he's already turning to defend. What do you do?>A. Throw your Aerosol Poison at his feet>B. Use the False Sound Jutsu, and try to mess with his sense of hearing.>C. Turn into an Owl, and try to get the drop on him from above.>D. Write-in
>>761062MINIYOU FUCKING JEWYOU FORGOT TO TWITTER
>>761710>BHe would just predict A before it lands and C won't do anything
>>761710>D. Write-inCombine C and A, look like we're going for an attack and drop the poison while we do it. Maybe hit him with a kunai, something that might hurt.
>>761710>B. Use the False Sound Jutsu, and try to mess with his sense of hearing.Jesus, im really unsure, this seems more complex than 'reading vibrations in earth', its borderline byakugan.
>>761710>B. Use the False Sound Jutsu, and try to mess with his sense of hearing.This should be called "every ninja is cooler than you" quest
>>761726The problem with that is that he'll see both us feinting the attack and dropping the poison
>>761710>>B. Use the False Sound Jutsu, and try to mess with his sense of hearing.Glad to see you are alive Mini
>>761737>This should be called "every ninja is cooler than you" questWe're the only ninja with a hivemind of anonymous idiots guiding their every action!
>>761730That's weird. It's not showing up in my feed.
>>761710>>B. Use the False Sound Jutsu, and try to mess with his sense of hearing.
>>761740Isn't there still smoke around? If we aren't touching the ground, he should not see us if that theory is correct.
>>761737Well yeahTakeshi is a completely normal guy with no KeK gen in a generation of special snowflakes and was fucking mediocre until he went full lee and trained hard to get goodIn a way we're the special snowflake of this generation
>>761761He can sense our movements without moving or looking
>>761737>>761778As soon as you guys got a good winning streak in people started complaining things were too easyTakeshi is truly the batman of /tg/ invented naruto characters
>>761787Unless he's got bullshit eyes, that is very likely to mean that he's sensing the vibrations through the ground. Earth is obviously his nature.
>>761710>B. False Sound Jutsu, throw him off.If this doesn't work, I've got another idea...>>761815Not neccessarily. He could have two natures. My money's on wind.
>>761799It was easy because we were forced in to playing smart and exploited our enemies weaknesses If we didn't know an enemies weakness we never rushed ahead, instead we played safe until we knew we could winBaisclly all the rookies could kick our ass if they hadn't rushed a headThat's one of the reasons salad is our natural counter
>>761828>Not neccessarily. He could have two natures. My money's on wind.Combination of sensing in changes of air volume (sensing the space where matter occupies) and ground vibration?
>>761836>>761799Also because they were Leaf genin or allied genin who didn't want to actually kill us dead. You could say it was the tutorial level. >>761838That's my guess for now, yeah. False sound may not be able to throw that off, but it can at least confirm/deny it/gather more info.
>>761828>>761838So we're just going to keep wasting our Chakra trying things with Jutsu? If we were to fly up anything we threw would be an indicator of if he can do that or not. There are still other enemies fighting our teammates, we need to not be wasteful.
>>761838Completely possible Earth and wind sensory Justus are bullshit like that so it can be one of the two or both at the same time
>>761838on that note, to counter sensing space in air, a good counter would be fire, since it burns oxygen and generally fucks up air density.
>>761882Fire is the counter to air in naruto but I don't think we know any
>>761871You whine, and turning into an owl "wastes" chakra too, but you raise a good point. How *are* we doing on Chakra, boss?
>>761893>Fire is the counter to airLel, completely forgot chakra counters.> I don't think we know anyAh, I was just thinking general means of countering that means of sensing. If that dude is using that type of sensing, then we're pretty fucked.Haze clones wont do shit, since they dont occupy any space or creater vibrations.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0TsE01qdy5AIt's time to test some theories. The analyzing phase is over. What you're certain of is that you're facing a very strong opponent. All of the tactics that you've used up until now have been key clinchers against most people you fight. This guy can brush off just about anything, it seems. But everyone has a weakness.Your mind goes back to fighting Roku in the preliminaries. And Mari in the tournament. Then Boruto at the finals. So many other fights, too. Seemingly impenetrable defense. Unstoppable power. Your foes had it all in spades.Lowering your stance slightly, you dig your heels into the ground as you focus on the jutsu. The beam of chakra hits Otozawa directly. You're at least confident that he can't see or detect chakra now, as well. He slaps Himawari's shuriken out of the way, and rushes at her. He's going to strike her side with a right hook before she can stand, but you imitate a noisy, mechanical vibration. It's loud as hell, and even if it's not what his detection method is, it serves as a distraction. The teenager stops his fist short, looking confused. "What's that noi-"Himawari fires her arm up, slamming her palm into his jaw in that narrow window of hesitation. He didn't have time to brace himself at all.There's an explosion of chakra. The angle of her attack was perfect, and the additional force of the gentle fist has probably done more than reel him. Otozawa goes flying backwards as Himawari stands up, laying quietly on the ground for a few seconds.You're not exactly sure if you simply surprised him, or actually interfered with his sensory method. A moment of tense silence passes, before your foe leaps to his feet. He slowly turns to you, eyes nearly bulging out of his head in rage. He opens his mouth and spits out a gulp's worth of blood, as well as a small bit of the tip of his tongue. He narrows his eyes. "You guyth are fucking dead."Your face twists as you try not to snicker.What do you do? He seems really riled up, now. Your Genjutsu was disconnected from the pain of him nipping a bit of his tongue off.>A. Cast it again, and try to see what the effects really are.>B. Use the Hydro Sword Jutsu, and try to engage him. If you and Himawari team up you may defeat him.>C. Leap into the air and throw the aerosol poison at his feet. Turn into an owl and observe. >D. Write-in

Paralysis Genjutsu would work wonders.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=17h01t4ey78You open up your weapon's pouch, but don't quite reach in yet. He's staring at you, but you want to wait until his attention is directed elsewhere. Even though you're here to rescue Himawari, the truth is you're pretty sure it would be impossible to defeat this guy without her help. This causes you to furrow your brow. Is it really right that a Genin is better than a Chunin in that respect? You're amazing support, but..Himawari charges forward, dashing in with a forward palm strike. Otozawa ducks under it without looking, hitting her cheek with an elbow as he spin around to face her. She brings up her block, and the following roundhouse kick sends her flying away. Jumping into the air, you reach into your bag and throw down the aerosol poison canister at his feet. It immediately begins to spurt thick clouds of green smoke. It swells up and begins to envelope him before he can really turn around. This pretty much confirms that he's using the ground to sense your position. You remember your brother telling you about his type of fighter, actually.Once you transform into an Owl, you get a good view of what happens next.Otozawa leaps out of the poison, seemingly flying to safety. Just at the tip of his arc, however, Himawari comes flying in. Before she impacts him, she begins to rotate rapidly in the air. She tightens into a ball, spinning faster and faster with a harsh blue light. This is some sort of modified Rotation! Or is it a Rasengan? You're not quite sure. Either way, she hits him like a human pinball and rebounds backward while the Cultist is slammed down. You fly around rather safely, watching Himawari herself recover. It's been about a minute since he fell in, and the cloud is starting to disperse.>A. Go to Himawari's side and ask for view>B. Wait up above where he can't sense you, and attack if he's still moving.>C. Land at the side opposite of Himawari. Ensure he can't escape.>D. Write-in
>B. Wait up above where he can't sense you, and attack if he's still moving.
>>762057>>A. Go to Himawari's side and ask for viewB I can only see ending in him throwing something at us, probably one of our fuuma. Better to be near the person who can deflect projectiles.
>>762057>>B. Wait up above where he can't sense you, and attack if he's still moving.
>>762057>BMake sure to do annoying shit like throwing sticks at him
>>762057>D. Soak the field with water bullets incase he gets up again.
>>762088is a good idea
>>762088This is a a good ideaSwitching to this
>>762088>>762095Commented before that expending enough chakra to soak field with water bullets would be incredibly chakra intensive. We'd need a dedicated field-wetting jutsu to do that.
>>762057>B. Wait up above where he can't sense you, and attack if he's still moving.
>>762088This is gonna use a lot of chakra. Bad idea.>>762057>B. Wait up above where he can't sense you, and attack if he's still moving.
>>762107>>762110I don't think you could soak the entire field, but a double use would be okay for the general area around him
>>762057>>B. Wait up above where he can't sense you, and attack if he's still moving.I don't feel confident with the amount of water we can use, he'd just jump somewhere else
>>762107>We'd need a dedicated field-wetting jutsu to do that.Might be worth looking into in the future, I think we could do a lot of fun things with terrain manipulation.
>>762162Creating a significant amount of water uses a shitload of chakra. It's not particularly useful outside of this specific fight either
>>762169I think a chakra rainstorm would have a lot more usesTwo I can think of is sensory justu and lighting

He rips off the tattered remains of the upper half of his clothing, and tosses them to the side. He stands tall and proud, seemingly unaffected.Before he slowly starts to fall to the side, and has to catch himself. He throws his hands out, trying to balance, but seems to be having a hard time maintaining his footing. He groans. "You..What did you do to me!?"He thrusts his fists into the earth, and picks up chunks of rock. He tosses them in your general direction, furious. Each one goes wildly off mark. You pop out of your owl transformation, falling down quickly. As you descend you fire off numerous Water Bullets at him. The impacts knock him back onto his rear, and the water flows to the bottom of the crater he's in. Otozawa stands up, and roars, turning his whole body to stone. It looks quite fearsome, but it's simply comical when he grips both hands into the ground. "EARTH MAUSOLEUM JUTSU"He tries to rip up the earth, but he fails to get a grip as mud slips through his fingers. Himawari throws a kunai at the back of his head, but it's deflected. You land and sprint forward, confident of your safety. This is your chance to finish him!>A. Push him into Himawari's Rotation>B. Draw your Wakizashi, and push it into his mouth. >C. jump on his head, and push his head into the mud. Get him into a choke and drown him.>D. Write-in
>>762196>C. jump on his head, and push his head into the mud. Get him into a choke and drown him.Sup Mini
>>762196>B. Draw your Wakizashi, and push it into his mouth.FINISH HIM
>>762217the guy is earth aligned, this doesn't seem like a good idea.
>>762196>B. Draw your Wakizashi, and push it into his mouth.No need to get fancy.
>>762196>>B. Draw your Wakizashi, and push it into his mouth.
>>762196>A. Push him into Himawari's RotationSeems like most surefire way to ruin his day. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_hHDxlm66dE
>>762196>>A. Push him into Himawari's Rotation
>B. Draw your Wakizashi, and push it into his mouth. Brutal
>>762196>B. Draw your Wakizashi, and push it into his mouth.
>>762196Comprimise between B and C:>D. Hydro Sword Jutsu!...wait, that might use up too much.>A. Team attack!
Finally catching one of these>BStraight-up murder him. We can't risk BEST GIRL getting ganked by an enemy we thought was dead, and we don't want to push him into the dirt when he obviously can use Earth styles.
Sprinting forward at full speed, there's no hesitation in your movements. They're clean and precise. There's only one visible opening on his body. His bright white teeth. You keep the blade at the ready before jumping forward at the edge of the crater, intending to turn and land next to him. He attempts to dodge, but the poison distorting his sense of balance is making any sort of coordinated movement nothing but a dream.The tip of the blade pushes through his teeth with ease, and the curve slides down his throat as if it were fashioned for it. You spin your elbow into the thrust, and plunge it in to the hilt. The tip of the blade pokes out of his sternum, and you hold it for a probably agonizing last few moments. Spinning back around, you draw the blade out of his mouth and flick it down to the mood. The blood flies off in specks, and you sheath your blade as your foe falls first to his knees. A second later, and he falls down face first in the mud. Himawari falls to the ground, panting in exhaustion. "Thank you..for coming.." "You should head back to camp." you say. "You're too tired to help, I have to get to the others!" Himawari nods. "Mirai sensei was split from us. I'm sure she's fought her way to one of the other two now. Let's hurry!"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=btPJPFnesV4The hairs on your neck stand on edge as you hear gurgling behind you. Slowly, you turn around. It's impossible. There's no way he's alive.Your eyes widen. The should-be corpse pushes itself out of the mud, trying to turn and face you. He moans, presumably in extreme pain. The bloody, filthy creature made of stone looks nothing like the bronze jock you saw earlier. This monster locks it's eyes onto you, with a smile on his face. His fist hits the ground, and through a split tongue and mangled throat, he attempts to laugh. Blood only spills from his mouth in a strange barking noise, and Himawari shrieks. "He's alive!" Otozawa pounds his fist into the mud. He's saying something repeatedly, an insane fire in his eyes. You think it's something like "Good fight!" He barks this again and again, probably only injuring himself further. He vomits from a mixture of poison and pain, and the scene is so brutal that you have to turn away. Throughout all of your missions you've never seen someone in such a pitiful state.>A. Stay and attempt to kill him. It seems he's immortal. His skin is also still stone.>B. You need to hurry to your friends, either one could be losing a battle right now.
>>762338>>B. You need to hurry to your friends, either one could be losing a battle right now.
>>762337Sunday night and Monday morning. I have 2 12-hour shifts this weekend, but I WILL run regardless.
>>762338>B. You need to hurry to your friends, either one could be losing a battle right now.Yeah, he's a fucking Jashinist, best we COULD do is tear him apart a bitHe's not in a fighting state, let's not waste our time.
>>762338>B. You need to hurry to your friends, either one could be losing a battle right now.
>>762338>B. You need to hurry to your friends, either one could be losing a battle right now.Wtf man, giving us immortal enemies isn't cool
>>762338>>B. You need to hurry to your friends, either one could be losing a battle right now.Stab him into a tree up high or something
>>762364Plus, with his stone skin, we can't even reliably do that. Leave him to heal up, we don't have the time to deal with this.>B. You need to hurry to your friends, either one could be losing a battle right now.
>>762338>BAh fuckLord jashin is in the house
>>762372>Wtf man, giving us immortal enemies isn't coolThe big bad guys of this quest, or at least the current ones, are all jashinists. There's gonna be a veritable torrent of these guys.
>>762372Jashins do thatThere actually easier to handle then you think
>>762403Solution: Get Laser Release, create Laser Net Jutsu, re-enact that scene from the Resident Evil movie on every damn cultist after paralyzing them with poison or bells. Problem solved.
>>762425or boil release, melt them into puddles, problem resolved.
>>762420>There actually easier to handle then you thinkImmortality is surprisingly useless when you're a pile of shredded meat.
>>762440Immortality is pretty useless is your spine is brokenImmortality is pretty useless if you get atomized Immortality is pretty useless if you get sealed Immortality is pretty useless if you get sent to the fucking moon
"Let's go, Himawari."The two of you leave him bleeding in the mud, though his distorted laughter persists for a short while. You're probably going to see that in your dreams a couple of times. It's a short trip back. Taking just a moment, you assess yourself. Currently you're still in good fighting shape. Despite some close calls, he never really landed a full blow on either of you. That kind of fight did well to illustrate a commonly occurring problem for you. You're able to neutralize well, but as your opponents get more powerful it's taking more and more to finish it.You can either follow Shinji's trail, or Kayo and Akahiko's. It's still very early in the morning. You used roughly a quarter of your chakra in that fight, thankfully you didn't really have to use any high-cost techniques.>A. Follow Shinji's trail>B. Follow Kayo's trail
>>762469Well, most Jashinists are cowards or psychos, usually both. They want to not be afraid of death, but... I'd be more afraid of spending all of eternity being encased in rock or something. Fuck that.
>>762338>B. Discretion seems like the better part of valor right now. Also we should bring Himawari with us so that she/we don't get ambushed by headless McGee....although, we should make plans for if we do have to fight later. Maybe we could water bullet down his throat? He may be immortal, but can he move without oxygen?
>>762481>A. Follow Shinji's trail
>>762481>>B. Follow Kayo's trail
>>762489Oxygen deprivation would just put them in stasis until they're reintroduced to oxygen
>>762481>B. Follow Kayo's trail.We've fought alongside her before, IIRC.
>A. Follow Shinji's trailDem bugs are useful, plus Kayo seems more capable on her own, to me.
>>762507Indeed, you were with Kayo when you caught the very first cultist you encountered. This whole squad was also with you when you faced your first real enemy, Makoto, one of the cultist leaders.
>>762481>A>>762487There are worst ways to go
>>762513So if we used boil release to turn them into a puddle, how hard would it be to reconstitute themselves?
>>762539If you make the brain die, this kills the mantotal destruction of the noggin is the only 100%. so that'd work
>>762549Looks like we need Boil Release: Dissolving Mist Jutsu or something like that. Plant bells, stun, paralysis poison to hold them there (optional), liquefy.
"I'm going to be going after Shinji. You'll be fine, right? I figure with your Byakugan no one should be able to sneak up on you."She nods. "That's right! At least, not again..I was asleep earlier.."You chuckle a little. "Well, can't really help that. I'll be back soon!" Turning, you run off and jump towards the paper trail The torn pages simply seem to be a fistful that were grabbed and scattered slowly. The white paper sticks out in the dark forest. You're gonna have to guess that Shinji did this intentionally. There aren't any explosions giving away a source of combat, but various amounts of scorched earth start to make a rough trail. Eventually you come into a deeper, darker part of the forest. The top of the trees are mostly blocking out the daytime. Visibility is slightly lowered, but not too impeding.The trees get larger as you go a little farther in the battlezone. Keeping your ears open, things are silent so far. >A. Call out for Shinji>B. Head forward into the clearing between the largest trees>C. Stay where you are, and try to survey the area as carefully as you can for clues>D. Write-in
>>762602>B. Head forward into the clearing between the largest trees
>>762602>C. Stay where you are, and try to survey the area as carefully as you can for cluesWe currently have surprise on our side hopefully. Or it's a trap, but either way this is a good option
>>762602>C. Is this a trap fight?
>>762602>>C. Stay where you are, and try to survey the area as carefully as you can for clues
>>762602>C. Stay where you are, and try to survey the area as carefully as you can for cluesShinji will know we're here if he has his bugs scouting (which he should), and we don't want to stumble into any traps he's set. Look for the bugs, stay on the defensive until we have a clear goal or Shinji finds us himself. Plant a bell and wait just in case we need to use it here while we wait.
>C. Stay where you are, and try to survey the area as carefully as you can for clues
>>762602>C. Stay where you are, and try to survey the area as carefully as you can for clues
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AGdFPcLx-vsHeightening your concentration as far as it will go, you scan the area. The air is quiet and still. You can see a patch of insects moving across a rock in the center of the small clearing, but you're unsure if they're simply inhabitants of the forest or Shinji's allies. Looking down, you notice two kunai. One to the far left, about ten feet away, near the base of a huge tree. The other is in a mirrored position on the other side, also at the base of a massive tree. You notice purple tags on both of the kunai. If you hadn't stopped to check they would have escaped you. >A. Walk over and examine the kunai>B. Walk over and examine the bugs>C. Call out for Shinji
>>762705>A. Walk over and examine the kunaiWe can probably check the bugs later.
>A. Walk over and examine the kunai
>>762705Kunai first. As I said, if the bugs are his, he'll know we're here. Just don't touch or trigger the tags on the kunai, and be ready to Shunshin out of the way if they go off. We don't know who set them, and some technique might make them proximity triggered.
>>762705>A. Walk over and examine the kunai
>>762705>B. Walk over and examine the bugs
You step over, and kneel down to glance at the tags. You don't quite touch them, but bend far enough to where you can get a good reading on the kanji inside. It says something vaguely along the lines of "Fishing net" Just as you're starting to stand up, you see Shinji standing in the center of the field. He raises his hands to the sides of his mouth as he shouts. "ABOVE YOU!!" Looking up, you see an ass in black shorts, and a pair of milky white legs in long black leather boots. A leg hooks itself around your neck in a seemingly impossible way. The joint locks and chokes you, pulling you upwards off the ground before you have a chance to react.Looking down, you notice Shinji isn't moving as he stares at you. He has needles sticking out all over his body, but it's more likely those kunai down there are a set of barrier seals. Looking up again, you see blonde hair flying around. Whoever this is, her legs are really soft, and they're choking the living hell out of you. What do you do?>A. Stab her with a kunai>B. Draw your Wakizashi and try to impale her>C. Bite into her leg, and punch her butt>D. Write-in
>>762833>D. Write-inStab them with a poison needle, if they're Jashinist then the other options do nothing.
>>762833Supporting >>762851Strongest we got
>>762833Body slam her into the ground, while she's dazed draw a kunai and stab her repeatedly
>>762833>do the ol elephant to fly trick
>>762861You could Transform into a smaller animal to escape , but not a larger one
>>762833>D. Stab them with a poison needle, if they're Jashinist then the other options do nothing.>>762851Yep, this sounds good, IF we can actually poison the senbon in this compromised position...
>>762833>>C. Bite into her leg, and punch her buttjust cause it's there.
>>762901Tactical fisting is best fisting
>>762883I feel like she'd be able to see us preparing the poison and either stop us or avoid it. Maybe if we knock her head on the ground or a tree we could buy enough time though.
>>762833>>D. Thousand years of death
>>762883>IF we can actually poison the senbon in this compromised position...On that note, is it possible to pre-poison senbon, or does the poison dry out or something?
>>762913or we could go for the wakizashi with our other hand to distract her while we poison the needle with our other hand
>>762926We should be able to do it very quickly, due to Poisoner skill.
>>762833>C. If you're an evil witch I will punch you for fun!Just kidding.>D. Poison Sting!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2pWEtpcFCjoYou reach down and fumble for your poison bag, and weapon pouch. There isn't really time to think, so you simply shove your fist into the kit and take one out without looking. Her leg squeezes tighter as you hang, your vision quickly starting to go dark. You shove a fistful of needles in the vial, and with your last burst of strength you sling your arm up. Three needles stick into her thigh, deep. At the exact same moment, however, she sticks three needles into your shoulder for good measure.She doesn't release you immediately, as whatever poison you selected takes a moment for the effect to kick in. You reach up and pull up now that your hands free, letting the vial of poison fall to the ground and shattering instead of bothering to put it back. Although you're momentarily allowing her to take the hold even deeper, you do get a small breath of air. The black around your vision is pressed back, and she suddenly yells. "Ow!! OWW!!"She drops you, the fireplume seed poison taking hold. Her leg has a searing pain shooting through it, and will for a little while.Gasping, you rebound off one of the trees and back to the ground. Shinji yells "Take the kunai out of the ground!! I'm trapped!"You dash, reaching the blade and yanking it free. A barrier of chakra flickers into, and then out of existence. You yank the needles from your arm, and throw them to the ground. It's the generic poison, you're positive from the sensation. Shinji may have to cover you while you remove it, or you'll just have to finish her before it gets bad.Your eyes narrow, focused on the blonde haired woman above. She twists through the trees easily, her joints bending double over the opposite way. It appears she has complete freedom in that regard, and it appears quite alien. Beads of sweat form on your forehead.---That's all for tonight folks. I'll be around a little longer for questions.
>>762960Thank god that worked. Poison will be a bitch to deal with, guess it's a taste of our own medicine.
>>762979Poison Extraction Technique says not really.
>>762960Thanks for running Mini. Glad to see you haven't died. When's the next session?>>762979Yep. We do have that Poison Extraction jutsu, but we might not get a chance to use it unless we back off and spend some time doing so.
>>762960Ooh, cool! We're fighting The Fear. This should be good.>>762901>>762907>>762918See, I'd *like* to do this, mostly 'cause I think it'd be funny, but I'm not really sure how effective it'd be....Wait, do we have explosive tags?
>>762979We have poison extraction but we need to finish her off fastIt should be a lot easier compared to that other guy
>>762990>Poison Extraction Technique says not really.Problem is having the time/opportunity to use it. >>762998>but I'm not really sure how effective it'd be.It's called 1000 years of death for a reason. The ultimate forbidden jutsu that not even the foulest of monsters dare unleash.
>>763013Because other shinobis talk shit if all you do is run around poking guys in the ass
I think we have time for one maneuver before we have to extract the poison. Mist>Haze Clones>Get to cover>Extract. Thank Ninja Jesus we learned that one.
>>762998You do have tags, but I'd suggest saving them more for emergency situations seeing as you just have 2
>>763013>>763025>>763066...also we kinda already have Lewd Genin quest for this sort of thing, don't we?
>>763406Probably.Having just got here though I am kind of a sucker for>The ex-villainous significant other who COULD totally go back to being that person in a heartbeat!>Just chooses not to because that would make people they met that they care about upset.
>>764488That'd be Takeshi if anyone, "Always smile and have a plan to kill anyone you meet." Is more or less how he rolls. He's unfailingly polite but can and will drop a bitch if he has too.
>>764879We're also opposed with being the best(was or goal since day 1) and the idea of out smarting our opponents We're basically a smaller,younger,weaker orochimaru
>>764879See that's why having a different variation/skillset/personality would work for a significant otherPossibly one that was actually villainous at some point
>>764942>also opposedWhat?>We're basically a smaller,younger,weaker orochimaruLess dickish too>>764977Pretty sure we'd be too busy watching each other to get shit done
>>765192Am I the only one who thinks that sounds like a funny sitcom?
>>766326only is Salad outdoes us both.>tfw she goes cross-eyed
>>765192>>766326>>766363The correct answer is trust building before dating so you at least know that whatever the other is going all KEIKAKKU over it will probably help you or at least not be intended to harm you and friends involved.But Salad going cross eyed is way funnier.
>>763135I'll post on my twitter when I run again, the latest it will likely be friday, possibly earlier
>>769341Looking forward to it, this is by far my favorite quest currently running.
Someone should prolly archive this
http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=Boruto Archived you lazy triple nigger
>>766515Do we actually have a plan for dealing with Salad?she might be the only character that we would have trouble with, considering she has the sharingan and takes Takeshi as a serious threat already
>>775669Chili-powder smoke bombs?
>>775876Maybe some sort of poison that gets in your eyes. Gives an excuse for Owl Goggles too.
>>777035I was thinking just the burning and tear production.Hard to Sharingan a guy if you can't open your eyes.That or really any genjutsu with non-visual components oughta be decent.The Sharingan specifically lets you see through genjutsu.You can't see through messing with non-sight related senses, phantom pain and being knocked unconscious.
>>777060Tear Gas sounds good.
How about goggles that while also being able to keep chili powder and tear gas out, has some really strong LEDs or lazers or something around the rim so that sharingan users cant make eye contact with us without them blinding themselves temporarily?
>>777359I like the idea, not sure how much it will pay off though. Never hurts to see how hard it would be to get working though.
>>777359Sounds good.Goggles in general are good as anti-irritantsThough if we're dealing with chilli powder and tear gas, a full blown gas mask, or at least some form of air filtration device, will be necessary.
>>769459Thanks anon, glad you are enjoying so much!>>775428MVP>>777060Sharingan can in fact auto-break all types of genjutsu. The one factor is that the sharingan user must be capable of actually using Genjutsu of a level they are trying to break. Someone like Itachi who was a prodigy of prodigies was thus nearly unstoppable, but Sauce was just as susceptible to Genjutsu as anyone until he got good at it. Of course in the manga/show genjutsu is heavily under-represented as a whole. Itachi was so good he didn't even need to auto-break people's genjutsu most of the time. He had a genjutsu version of "no, I'm behind you now. you lose."
>>777920I forgot how bullshit sharingan wasWe need to do something about that
>>779572Constantly expose ourselves to noxiously spicy foods, learn boil release, pepper bomb our foes.
>>777396Gas mask? Hell, that sounds awesome. And using tear gas as a counter to bullshiteyes is a good idea. Takeshi is going to end up as this world first true ninja.
>>779786Less high tech, more dishonored
>>779795Damn, with the rats summon we could have gone full Corvo. And correct me if i'm wrong, but during this time period isn't the Naruto's world pretty high tech in some aspects?
>>779826It's basically anachronistic hell, yeah.
>>779826Who isn't to say we can't with Owls? Crows are like the middle ground between a rat and an owl.
>>779826Owls mean we can do things like fly above our enemies reach when shit gets real Also mind prison
>>779852>>780101>Owl college attack en masse
Learning about the sight of owls they seem like a dojutsu in and of itself.
>>780297It's possible Owls are fucking weird
>>780297Wouldn't be surprised if owl sage eyes were close to par with Byakugan Though they might be better for telescopic vision.
So: Poison bombsGas mask Jetstream Sam SheathFinding ways to counter bullshiteyesAnd now, ancient and forgotten owl abilities.Holy fuck, Takeshi is awesome.
>>782005We have poison bombsWe'll get the sick sword that shows the leafs total dominance over everything but money (we should totally do something about that) when we finish the mission Gas mask isn't set in stone yet, I suggest we modify it with some sealsOwl bullshitery is going to happen soon
We need to learn fire release tog et boil and make sealed acid kunai that melt someone's face off.
