"Why does it seem everything ends up getting destroyed wherever we go?"[Intro: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jSyDSy6WNyU] [Remove]You shout back to Shizune as you lay the last of the Gato Guards out with a sweeping haymaker. There's an upturned table partially blocking the hallway up front. You continue your long strides forward, dropping your shoulder into a tight acute angle. As you feel it just make contact, you push ever harder.Every step is an explosion from the ground.The table audibly cracks. You burst up from your hips, snapping the furniture like a match.You continue your sprint indifferently down the hallway. Shizune stands back all the hallway entrence, still staring in disbelief at the wreckage tossed aside like a broken linkin' log. "Yeah...yeah, I wonder why.">You are now playing as Tai>You rejected your past life of sin and conflict, taking a new name as a monk in your quest for self-purification>Lifestyles can change so much, so quickly. People can become different in mere days, let alone years if you aren't watching. >You take the vows of a monk for the people closest to you. Your life is a redemption by fire for your own self-perceived mistakes. >...but it seems that old habits will always die hard. This current labor may be the hardest yet.

You casually flick the door aside with your forearm. It flies open and crack against the wall- they really don't build these things strong these days. You feel something dribbling down your arm and face. Probably blood or something, you don't give that much notice to it these days. What matters is you finally found that happy-go-lucky Yoru. You exasperatedly call the businessman as he jumps up startled, holding a bright coral-colored cup. "Come on! I thought you may be here, we don't have much time be-"...why do you smell smoke? A voice screams out far back from the poker tables. "FIRE, OH GOD FIRE! EVACUATE THE BUILDING NOW!"Fires now too? You look back to an alarmed Shizune slightly down the hall. "There is debris, paper, and broken wood everywhere! This place will go down in flames if someone started a fire! We need to find the others!"This is getting more dangerous by the second. You need to get in contact with the others, but you also...>Haven't found Rin yet! You need to get her out of here, Yoru looks okay enough on his own.>Need to Evacute Yoru first. He's here and looks badly beaten, not the kind of person you should leave to fend on their own. >Will let Yoru manage alone with what he's at. Shizune is here to and can get him out, but only you can navigate this place quick enough to get to the others in it. >Write in(?)>Ask someone something

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WNSf_w0Er70You looks battered, but he can certainly handle it fine- at least well enough with Shizune by his side. The smoke and ash smells stronger by the second, even to you. No time to waste!'Shizune, get Yoru. I'm finding Rin.""I'll follow you out as far as I can, Tai. I need to get Yoru out of here after that!"You turn heel immediately on the scene and barrel down the hallway back to the gambling floor......you stumble into the room, a fairly sized fire spreading throughout it despairingly quick. Shizune is right on your heels, physically supporting Yoru as she shunshins to keep up. Tables are overturned, glass is broken, there are broken planks of wood and chairs everywhere. Chips lay scattered upon the floor, a wide smattering of people still fighting over spare Ryo still dusted thickly about the room. That distraction of Yoru's was too good, it's become the main problem!You hear the calamatous, wringing screech of ripping and crushing metal towards the slots room. From the exit towards the Casino rotunda, you hear the sharp rings of clashing steel. The fires burn ever stronger in this room, though you hear a coughing noise from near the burning piles of wood! There are pained groans from the cashier's booth too!>Check the Cashier's Booth!>Someone is still alive, trapped behind that fire! You have to save them!&>There may be trouble ahead in the slots room, tell Yoru and Shizune to head towards the rotunda.>There may be trouble ahead in the rotunda, tell Yoru and Shizune to head towards the slots room>Ask Yoru if he is okay. Doesn't he have a gadget for this situation or something?>Try to contact Amon and the others through the Speak-No-Evil Seal>Prepare yourself for battle. >Write in

>>844613>Someone is still alive, trapped behind that fire! You have to save them!Cashier Booth person might live?>Try to contact Amon and the others through the Speak-No-Evil Seal
"Amon, you better not be dead on me!""Tai! I'm a bit too held up at the moment to be, sorry to disappoint. I've got my hands full with a situation in the lobby, but we need to save Asa!""Where?""The vaults downstairs! She normally could make it but I think something is coming for her!""I'll be there to handle the situation soon, I need to get Rin first!"The floor slightly quakes as you steam across towards the burning rubble. You dive into it fist-first with a leaping blow into the first piece of debris you find. On the ground, wheezing weakly, is a smoke-addled Rin.Her leg is trapped under a heavy, burning table. You bury your hands into the edges of the wood and throw it across the pile. You lift up the nearly unconscious Rin onto your back- her arms draped over your shoulders- and hurtle out of the roaring inferno just to watch Shizune and Yoru as they head out towards the Rotunda with what looks to be the limp body of an employee from behind the Cashier's Stand. You'd worked with him for the past week, you know his face well. He has two kids who live with him in the city, he had hopes of sending to Konoha to study at the Ninja Academy with the money from this job. Rin coughs, delirious. "A...mon. I'm....I'm sorry, I didn't mean it to be...this bad."You stay silent as the girl breaths hoarsely, her lungs must be burned from the hot ashy embers on top of the damage on her burned arms and legs. . "I saw...Yoru get hurt...I thought...I thought I'd stop everyone.""That's enough, Rin. You did just fine." She continues to wheeze raggedly on your back. This doesn't look good.>You need to get directly out of here, towards the Rotunda with Shizune and Tai! Also has the path down towards the vaults. >Take the detour around through the Slots Room; Amon said there was some heavy violence in the rotunda. This path would let you cross around it and towards the entrance. >Write in! (What else to check, do, say)
>>844960>Take the detour around through the Slots Room; Amon said there was some heavy violence in the rotunda. This path would let you cross around it and towards the entrance.Can we send Yoru and Shizune around there and have Tai go to the vault? If it's relatively safe, they shouldn't need Tai's help. Unless Yoru can't carry Rin.
>>844960>Take the detour around through the Slots Room; Amon said there was some heavy violence in the rotunda. This path would let you cross around it and towards the entrance. The whole starting a fire for the escape plan thing was just a really terrible idea
>>844969Yoru just had his ass beat by a dude who would later become a Raikage. >If it's relatively safe. You hear the calamatous, wringing screech of ripping and crushing metal towards the slots room.
>>844990Ah, we're fucked then. Okay.
>>844989It technically is working. Also you did cause a literal mob. There weren't too many options for a 14 year old girl being trampled.
>>845003She's a trained ninja though
>>845012Doesn't matter if you're a navy seal with 20 years of experience, you're fucked if you're in the middle of a giant mob of people. Take Medieval battles for instance, in 90% of the cases an actual battle was fought the vast majority of casualties resulted from people being trampled in the rout. After that was people cut down in the rout by the enemy.
>>845003She was also pinned and saw her friend being beaten to death. Let's cut the girl some slack, no bully
I'll the vote here, Jinchuri-combat it is. >Writing
>>845055I've had a thought. There's no back entrances or even windows so we don't have to go through the angry mob or Jetstream Han? No emergency exits either?
>>845055*call Slow night or just me?
>>845062Every quest seems super slow tonight. I don't think the posting being super slow is helping either. That might just be me though.
>>845059There are windows if you want to leave Amon, Asa, and the others pretty much to their fate.
>>845098Why can't we just have the two people who got the shit beat out of them leave that way while Tai and Shizune go to help? It would probably be a lot easier not having to worry about them.
>>845112>You see Shizune and Yoru run hurriedly out exactly the way they came. Shizune says one word: "Flowers!">She throws a kunai through the nearby window, jumping out with the limping Yoru on her shoulder. This is now canon
>>845135I'll admit, I don't get the reference. Flowers?Also, sorry to nitpick, lord knows there'd be no end if everyone nitpicked everything I wrote, but how is Yoru limping while Shizune's carrying him?
I'll actually wait to do this tomorrow. I'll start/continue much earlier, hopefully things will be a little faster!Thread tomorrow at around 4:30pm Eastern starting with the post for this last vote!
>>845144I give you the limp-carry
>>845150Maybe hold a revote too. I don't mind my vote losing if it means more people get to participate. I also admittedly had second thoughts about my choice, whether it would be easier to get through a large room literally filled with angry fighting people vs avoiding Han and whoever he's fighting while carrying Rin around. I just didn't want to change and end up with a tie.>>845173>The ears and tailI'm dying. Also I realize I never thought of that as carrying. I just say they're giving them a shoulder. Which is weird as well.

>>847341>You need to get directly out of here, towards the Rotunda where Amon is! Also has the path down towards the vaults.I wonder where everything went to shit. And if we could have avoided this. Probably by picking a different plan, I guess. That wouldn't have been as fun though.
>>847381It's really just because Rin went full retard
>>847407Setting fire to a building that you're currently inside is always retarded. And it made everything worse. It made the crowd more dangerous and it was completely unnecessary for the plan to succeed.
>>847420She had to do something. It was her job to make the distraction.
>>847451Everyone was already completely distracted man. There was literally no justifiable reason to start a fire.
Rotunda it is! What else could possibly go wrong?!
>>847475A was literally beating the shit out of Yoru as she did it.
>>847478You know what, I think we should ask what can't go wrong at this point.
>>847509Please don't say that I think I know how it could get worse
>>847492How is fire a solution to that problem?
>>847538It'll scare away the mob trampling you so you can try to go help?
>>847549Lol whatever man I'm a rinfag too but that doesn't mean she can do nothing stupid or wrong
>>847556I'm for Asa. It's why I used asked she be the one to get the special scene with Amon after I crit so much.Your waifu a shit.;^)
With a burnt Rin wrapped over your shoulders, you hardly have any leeway here. She needs to get out of here now. Despite Shizune's unintelligible warning, the Rotunda is the way to go. The shortcut isn't worth the risk of running into whatever sounds to be ripping apart the slot machines like paper.As you dash ever closer to the twin doors leadings to the casino rotunda, the sound of clashing steel grows louder and louder. As you burst through the doors, you're met with an unexpected sight...Flower petals float serenely in the air throughout the marbled room. Bodies of various looters lay scattered about the the edges of the room. In their midst, a long-haired swordman is poised like a snake about to strike, a smirk on his beautiful face. Sanjuro Hoki. His opponent is another man you've seen in the casino earlier today, the Kumogakure man wearing sunglasses. He waits like a statue, an unbelievable number of blades wedged in nearly every crevice of his body. He doesn't look fazed in the slightest by the conflict. By his side is a weary, panting Amon, still standing strong but completely unarmed. >Throw Amon the retractable staff you still have for him!>Join them in the fight, Rin has to wait until you make sure your brother is safe first!>Get past them! Rin needs medical attention first!>Jump headfirst into the fight after handing off Rin to Amon. It's your turn to take his place, now.>Ask Amon where Asa is and if he has seen or heard from her!>Write in!
>>847578>>Throw Amon the retractable staff you still have for him!
>>847578>Throw Amon the retractable staff you still have for him!>Ask Amon where Asa is and if he has seen or heard from her!B's a badass, he'll be able to do something with whatever seals Amon has to help. I'm pretty sure Kakuzu is going after Asa.
>>847578>Throw Amon the retractable staff you still have for him!
>>847578>Get past them! Rin needs medical attention first!Are we not all connected by hear no evil seals? Let's use it to figure out where Asa is.
>>847672The vault, and Amon could sense something that felt evil going down there after her. It was in the last thread. As was when Amon or Asa (can't remember which) saw Kakuzu.
>>847592>>847625>>847626>>847672>Throw Amon the retractable staff! Keep going, get Rin to safety!>Use the Hear-No-Evil Seals to find out where the others are!
>>847729>Use the Hear-No-Evil Seals to find out where the others are!Specifically Asa. Unless Rin, you know, dying right now. That would take precedence.
>>847729>Throw Amon the retractable staff! Keep going, get Rin to safety!we can leave her outside then return
>>847729>Throw Amon the retractable staff! Keep going, get Rin to safety!Oh we had to pick one? Sorry would've voted sooner I thought you were doing both
You're doing both! I didn't realize I forgot to put >writing
>>847774Now that I think about it, Tai would probably be more liable to want to fight Hoki and have Amon do what he's doing now, getting Rin to safety and looking for Asa. Oh well.
>>847794eh, fists vs swords doesn't quite work out in our favor. Tai isn't that good yet.
>>847806He does have that Dharma (is that how you spell it?) release. He was punching holes in stone walls earlier in the quest.Amon's Gift Idea for Tai: Metal Guantlets to help punch people.
"Amon, think fast!"A bewildered Amon glances over to see who called him for only a brief second. Noticing the retractable staff flinging towards him in the air, he reaches out to catch it. That's all the window hoki needs. From his lithe poise, his body seemingly disappears into thin air. The Kumogakure Ninja leaps forward immediately, spinning like a bladed hurricane! You spot a flash of a purple robe low to the ground where the Kumo ninja had leapt, but with another static blur you lose track of the ronin once more! Seven blades dance about in the seemingly empty space, your eyes only catching small, millisecond glimpses of purple and glinting steel twisting through the storm of blades. Next thing you comprehend is Sanjuro Hoki crouched like a predator in front of Amon, katana firmly coiled and prepared to strike in a sweeping slice! Before he can, a single electricity-covered blade launches into his path like lightning! The sharp missile cuts the swordsman off entirely, he quickly readjusts by diving out of the way with the same momentum once meant for the swift deathblow. The two allies quickly regroup, as Sunglasses spits out a rhyming taunt. With just that sword, you ain't got no power.Give up and retreat before you burn like those flowers!Say adios to the Sealer and the Bee,'Cause you're about to lose to me!
Hoki circles once more, blade coiled tightly and eager to strike as the man elegently glides across the floor like one of the many petals in the air. Taking his chance, Amon tosses you back a shiny, quarter-sized object through the air. You catch it easily as you pass by......it's a ring?"Tai, I'll handle things here with Bee! Get Rin and Asa to safety with that rin! I got it from the Fire Temple monks as a gift, but haven't had the chance to test it- be careful!"The Kumogakure ninja twitches at the mention of Asa's name, but otherwise remains focused on his opponent. As you leave you see Amon painting something onto the dark-skinned warrior with his brush, brandishing his staff as he does so. You call out to the Hear-No-Evil Seal, demanding everyone's positions and conditions asap.Shizune: Yoru and I have made it outside, I'm healing his injuries now! There are still people streaming out from the building from the fire! I'm setting up a first-aid station out front to take care of them!Yoru: I'm managing, thanks to her. I'm off to find Tsunade, if those characters inside are any indication we'll need all the help we can get!Rin: -unresponsive-Amon: I'll fend off Hoki with Bee for as long as we need to, make sure everyone else gets out okay!Asa: Hoki? Fire? Just what are you all up to up there? Is that one of you I sense coming down now...?There is nobody you know of currently coming to get Asa. Someone else is making their way towards the vault...You burst through the front doors and into the front lobby, panicked and cursing patrons escaping through the main doors and outside into the cool evening breezes. You follow them in kind, steamrolling through and shattering the doors without a second thought. You see Shizune and some other volunteers at a makeshift field treatment stand, spare rags and basic medical equipment loosely spread about the area. You drop off Rin on a small bed of piled clothing and curtains as Shizune rushes over.>Stay to help Shizune treat the wounded and wait for Tsunade!>There is no time, you need to take point! Asa and Amon are both still inside, they need you!>Rapidly search for another weapon of some sort, fists may only get you so far here!>Try to find someone else to help you evacuate the others inside!>Write in
>>848008*With that ring
>>848008>There is no time, you need to take point! Asa and Amon are both still inside, they need you!Also tell Asa that none of us are coming to the vault, it's probably bad news.
>>848008>There is no time, you need to take point! Asa and Amon are both still inside, they need you!
>>848008>There is no time, you need to take point! Asa and Amon are both still inside, they need you!Shit Asa needs back up quick
>>848008>>There is no time, you need to take point! Asa and Amon are both still inside, they need you!
>>848008Could we also ask Yoru to keep an eye out for anything useful? He won't be moving around much, but if he notices a particularly large stick or a metal pole or if he crits his search roll, a less improvised weapon he can tell Tai where it's at, just in case he needs it later.
>>848008>Rapidly search for another weapon of some sort, fists may only get you so far here!
>There's no time! Take point, warn Asa.>Writing!lewd Asa's for good luck

>>848174Aww, now I hate myself even more.
>>848182Idk what it is about that art but it kinda unnerves me
>>848200On second thought it might be because amon looks a bit like a buff contortionist baby
A hurdle through the front doors of the casino and you're in a full, unhindered gallop back to the rotunda. The familiar, raw adrenaline caresses your veins as your eyes sharpen to a piercing, unyielding focus. Your perception, your extensive experience in situations of these by the dozens, come roaring back to the forefront of your mind. Even the soreness of your lungs from inhaling the smoke greets like an old friend. You tear through the doors of the rotunda, immediately collapsing back with your shins to the floor- the razor-edged stream of petals zip so close overhead you feel them cutting what little of your short buzz was left.With a leap, you're back up and running through the razored petal-storm within the room. There are explosions and streams of fire from within the ring dancing combatants, but you're better than being distracted by pretty lights! Another leap, a flip, and a slide across the floor later you're barreling through door and down the marble stairs to the floors below. Asa! We were not the ones coming down! Are you okay?...h-help...Asa!The path ahead looks clear for now. You take the one last chance to look back...>>848182Just as sharp steel carves through Amon's chest like butter. The blade carves across his chest diagonally to his right side under the armpit and flashes up towards the sky in a bolt of white and red. You hear your brother cry out in pain, the bone of his upper rib flashes white through the gouge. A small flap of the skin on his shoulder is nearly cut off entirely.>AMON, NO! I can't leave him there!>D-DON'T LOOK BACK! Amon will be fine, he can pull through worse. Asa may not.
>>848356>D-DON'T LOOK BACK! Amon will be fine, he can pull through worse. Asa may not.Bee's still around, right? He can keep Hoki away from Amon. Asa's by herself.
>>848356>D-DON'T LOOK BACK! Amon will be fine, he can pull through worse. Asa may not.
>>848356>D-DON'T LOOK BACK! Amon will be fine, he can pull through worse. Asa may not.Why are we not playing as Amon right now
>>848380We voted to play as Tai last thread. Well, other people did. I voted for Asa.
>>848380Tai gets the big show tonight, despite what you may think
>>848396POV switches sort of trigger me. Especially when serious shit is happening to the MC
Can't afford to...cut Amon any slack, gotta get Asa!Writing!
>>848414Well it wouldn't have happened if Red didn't roll like a not Goldie goldfish.
You sprint down stairwell after stairwell. You remember the clear twang of sliced sinew cut in your brother's shoulder. You've found yourself deep below the earth, a maze of wide marble hallways greeting you. You remember Amon's scream. You remember the girl's empty, brown eyes as the needled blade buried into her chest within the meditative gardens of the Water Temple. "DAMN IT!"The wall develops little cracks where you launch your fist at it out of frustration. Why? Why is it never enough? Why can you still not protect them; why are you still so weak? There is no mincing words here...you've failed your own family. You could have- should have- prevented this. They need you to be great, you need to be even better for them! ...for her, as well. Whatever the cost, whatever is needed...it could never be too high of a price when compared to letting them down. You nod, determined. This is your time. This is Tai time. Down the hallways you go, hallways filled with artificial light. Several times you happen upon trails of blood along the white stone, all lead to mutilated bodies, open holes ripped into their heartless chests. Asa...while you may not have been her fan, but she's admittedly grown on you as much as she has the others- even Rin. She doesn't deserve this end. With one last turn, the hallway widens ever so gradually...and so you come across the room.-Inside, your worst hopes and greatest nightmare.(1/2)
>>848532You used my line! EEEEEEEEE
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PmvqOx1wY3E"Not only an open vault, but a decent bounty waiting as well. I should come to casinos more often...don't you think, girl?"Asa is wrung by her neck in midair by the monstrous man's disattached hand. His wild-haired head slowly turns to glare at you with pupiless, green eyes. You've seen eyes like those many times before. He can no longer see the true value in anything anymore. "I don't have the patience for a worm. You're worth nothing, not even my time- leave."But as he stares at you, his eyes narrow and he takes out a small book from his pocket. Reading it intently, a ruthless smirk snarls across his stitched face. "Ah, wait...I thought so. 500,000 Ryo...a pleasure to see you still alive after this long decade.Asa gargles venomously at the threaded man, he only grins wider as her neck begins to pop audibly from the force of his tentacle-like hand. You...>Do what?!
>>848652Uh... punch him I guess. What can Tai do? Maybe use that technique he used last time he sparred amon
>>848652Can we get a list of what Tai can do? We've only seen him use Dharma once, after all.
>>848659On second thought we should free Asa first
>>848652>Yell out "ASA, DO THE THING!">Kazoo looks at her in confusion>Punch the fucker into space while he's distracted>Profit

"Wait," you think out loud on your feet. How to distract...wait!You reach into your gi, pulling out the treasured ring Amon had thrown you as the stitched man watches peeved. You hold it up hesitantly. "This is the greates treasure of the Fire Temple. It is worth far, far more than 500,000 Ryo. Take it and let us leave."He look back at you hungrily, the same cold smile on his face as he motions for you to bring it forward. You take the chance to glance at writhing, pale Asa held in midair as he is totally absorped by the object. "I'll need to inspect just what I'm trading for, first."Eyes darkening and anger building, you approach him fearlessly. "Those eyes...are eyes I've seen many times. But, yours aren't the type that could be forgotten. Those eyes...that stitched body..."He ignores you, still transfixed on the ring."...THE S-RANKED CRIMINAL! YOU WHO HUNTED DOWN MANY OF MY MEN AND NOW MY CLOSEST FRIENDS!"When you finally catch his attention by slipping the ring around your finger at the last moment, it is too late...his own greed has trapped him! You bellow as your body floods with energy! "KAAAAAAAZOOOOOOOOOOO! I WILL NEVER FORGIVE YOU- FIRST GATE OPEN !!!" His eyes widen in surprise as you shoot through the air with a burst of force, ripping through his cabled arm as you bring your hand down in a chop! Asa falls to the ground, sputtering for air but quickly retreating. Kakuzu looks annoyed as black, tenacle-like threads slither from his body and tie together with those in his severed arm. In seconds, he's back together. Within a minute, his body begins to sickeningly stretch, tear, and snap as a large, masked mass of black threads claws out of his back!"Looks like they're going to have to take you dead instead of alive."Asa is up, confident and angry despite having looked so shaky moments before. You need a battle plan! [Tai has incredible endurance and strength, but is a mainly close combat fighter! You have a few longer range moves, as seen before...but you aren't good at distances! You can open up to the fourth gate, giving you a +5 bonus for every gate opened at the cost of heavy physical penalties after several turns!]>Write in, you already know what Tai and Asa are capable of!
>>849068I say Tai stays in close combat with Kazoo to distract him, while Asa catches her breath and use s the Freezing Arrow (can't remember it's name) when she's able. Since he can just stitch himself back together.Can Tai layer Dharma on top of the Gates? If so do that as well.
>>849103Oh yes he can layer dharma and Gates
>>849103This works for me. Wtf does that ring do though?
>>849116Oh yeah baby.He obviously Ora Ora's Kazoo's shit.While screaming Kazoo if he doesn't have his own Ora Ora sound.
>>849103Seconding this, divide and conquer his stringy ass.Also we should keep calling him Kazoo.
>>849068use that ring, keep him close to distract him from Asa. If he tries to break away, we ORA his ass.Asa should probably unload lightning arrows into him.

>>849252>>849255>>849264Tai is amazing. Asa... is not. Maybe she's having trouble breathing, what with the zombie choking and the smoke inhalation.
>>849272Don't you talk like that in my house. She saved Amon from being possessed and has helped immensely in the past. Hoki would've killed Amon at the Fire Temple if she hadn't been there.

"HERMIT ART: DHARMA PLATINUM!"The room shines like stardust as pure, crackling white chakra emits from your fistsBut Kakuzo scoffs as he launches his cabled hand towards your neck like a rocket! "DHARMA PLATINUM: STAR BARRRRRAGE! ORAA!"You bat the grasping appendage out of midair and back at the zombified man with your own explosive fist! It snaps back onto his arm, as he jumps backwards by a quick step, allowing the red-masked nightmare leap over as it spews gouts of hellfire from it's maw! "ORA! ORAORAORAORAORA!"You clash fistfirst with the first firestorm! But, rather than burn you...the flames are seemingly engulfed in a swirling vortex- it's the ring! The ring absorbs projectile ninjutsu in a wide swathe in front of you!"ORAORAORAORA!" Fist after fist both destroys and shields you from the raining inferno, as well as parting it well enough to provide Asa some amound of cover below. One of the petals of the Lotus Ring begins to glow a bright red as you absorb a path through the inferno, delivering a crunching blow to the creature. It is propelled backward and knocked aside by Kakuzu, who quickly moves aside as a frigid arrow flies past- the air frosted and cold in the space it passes through. His body begins to crunch and rip again, yet another monstrous blue-masked horror climbing out of him! You...>ORA FORWARD!!

>>849528>Write in? (What? Have Asa do something? Tactics for extra points?)Did Tai hit the mask of the red one? If not, since that didn't seem to do much, attack like before trying to bait out Kazoo's minions to try and gang up on Tai, and when they get close, hit them in the mask with DHARMA PLATINUM: EIGHT SPOKES! The capitals are necessary. Kazoo'll think we're overconfident and won't be as on-guard, so it'll be relatively easy.I dunno what Asa can really do to lower the DC, try to shoot the arrow through Tai's stardust so Kazoo can't see it coming? That should help a little bit since he isn't moving much.

The hole in the monster immediately begins to ice over, before long the creature is nearly frozen in place! It drops to the ground and skids, several parts of it breaking off and shattering. However, the blue-masked monstrosity continues unimpeded. A high-pressured jet stream of water thicker than a large tree explodes from the demonic creature, blasting you out of the way just as you were loosing a crackling punch into Kazoo's stomach. The nearby domed wall of the vault exterior cracks as you are blasted by the drowning, jet-streamed tide of water.

>>850455You mean dice?
>>850462No. Well yeah our rolls have been bad I guess but having to reach 90s and 100s with our rolls is frankly too high
>>850468He's Kakuzu man, one of the most badass people in Naruto canon. He fought Hashirama Senju and came closer to killing him than anyone other than Madara. Senju's basically the closest anyone ever came to being Jesus without massive amounts of plot help like Narutard and Sausage.tl;dr we're fighting one of the most dangerous people to have ever existed.
>>850483So why are we fighting this nigga in a completely random circumstance with a character with some abilities nobody but the QM actually knows?
>>850514People last thread wanted to play as Tai. I can't blame them, we've never played as him before.As for why Kazoo's here, I dunno. Maybe Red rolled who'd be here. We're fighting him because Asa rolled a 20 on her original roll against Kazoo. I assumed after being strangled with enough strength to make her neck pop she wouldn't be able to run, if we even had a chance to when she's at 100%. Kazoo has a bunch of tricks up his... hairs?

However, it isn't enough! Yet another attack, this one coordinated by the yellow and blue beasts is already zapping towards you- it's too quick!At the last moment, a freezing arrow pierces through the electrically-charged pressure cannon of an attack. The thick column of thunder and water freezes instead! Catching the looming cyclinder of ice with your firey fist, you shatter it into less than hailstones!There are three of them now, not including Kakuzu: blue, yellow, and a grotesque grey beaked one slithering out from his back.

DHARMA PLATINUM: BURNING FERVOR!"The thundering bellows begin to quake the very ground under you. The concrete dents and cracks under your feet as you obtain capacities of strength unable to be contained within the human body. The very air around you ignites in a fiery-prismatic hue of your pure, crackling chakra. The ring's red, glowing petal fades away to it's normal metallic hue. Replacing it instead- your gaze alone could burn holes in a man, let alone your steaming, star-hewn aura.

>>850878I thought we were gonna hit him with our hardest punch, we need to end this quickly anyway before Tai burns himself out
>>850885This is meta knowledge, but I'm afraid that actually won't be enough to kill him. IIRC he had 5 hearts he took from shinobi he killed. We need to get him all to actually kill him. He may have more or less. He'd need at least as many as he has minions.He may just decide to puss out after Tai shows off his RIGHTEOUS MIGHT though.

>>850978>>61-95: Scylla...oh yes. Would 96-100 have been Charybdis? Because that may be too much power to give to anons.
>>850962>>850967If I remember the lessons on calculating probability I took in high school right, the chance of rolling a 64 or lower on those 4 rolls is 16%.
>>850995Well, that's misleading. The chance of rolling a 64 or lower was 64% on each roll, but all together the chances of each being 64 or lower was 16%
"SUMMONING TECHNIQUE: SCYLLA, RISE FORTH!"With a burst of smoke around your burning figure, a massive school of flying canivorous pirahna swirl about- a living, moving shield and weapon! With a few quick arm motions, you've commanded them into mutliple diverting strikes from nearly every angle! You spring back your fist just as Kakuzo and the three demonic creatures all return with their own attacks!"DHARMA PLATINUM: EIGHT STARLIGHT SPOKES!"Your fists explode instantaneously in a starry cloud of eight separate blows, each delivered with a crack of sonic speed. Crushing pillars of sheer air-pressure are shot at the foes, who immediately counter with cascading torrents of fire, tidal forces of water, and the thunderous crash of lightning. Asa manages to escape the worst from the impact zone, as the solid concrete foundation around you quakes and cracks from the heroically magnified strength at play. The Scylla also manages to absorb the majority of the elemental storm, outright evaporating large swathes of the summon from existence. You stand as a statue on the floor, Bright-Red skin altogether burnt or stripped away from your body. Blood leeches slowly from your open wounds, evaporating into the inferno of you aura and dying the air with a thin red mist. Every one of your opponents hovers briefly in midair, gaping holes where pillars of force had burrowed through them like styrofoam. Yet, just as quickly as it had happened, the black-threaded monstrosities reform entirely. The red-masked one rejoins the others, finally regenerated fully. Kakuzo himself has a large section of his torso blown apart, but you watch the threads inside his body knot together and reform as well! "For an idiot, you're quite strong. You would have made a profitable bounty in the future...pity."Asa fires off several arrows, chakra-infused and normal, keeping the opponent occupied for just a bit longer. Only about 1/2 of the Scylla remains. You think you hear thoughts of panic and nausea from the Hear-No- Evil Seal. It seems things upstairs aren't well either, let alone with your earthshattering battle in the foundations below.

>>851065>>Try to work with Asa closer, you'll have to go down together if needed!One last try.Man, Tsunade's going to feel shitty when this is over and done.
>>851077DC's won't stay effectively 65 for long. They'll quickly increase as your body begins to physically break down
>>851081Yeah, I figured as much. I assumed we'd have them for at least one more round. Which is why I ust want to get Kazoo to decide to fuck off. By punching him up through the foundation.It's basically the same thing, right?
>>851086It'll hold up for another round, hopefully the dice aren't out for Tai again.
>>851087Everything just has it out for him.Would Tai know the moves of the Eight Gates? I'd considered voting for one of them, but then I remember Guy himself made them, and thought Tai couldn't know them because of that.
Would everyone be fine finishing everything for this thread first thing tomorrow? Seems like most people are dead. Tai pretty much has his own eight gates moveset, as he hasn't been formally taught by Guy/Duy or anything.Anons still participating get rare Asa
>>851099Jesus I've ran out of appropriate reaction pics.I'm fine with restarting in the morning. Maybe the dice'll be less liable to want to fuck Tai then.
>>851099I'm slightly tipsy and semi-conscious, so sure. Morning seems like a good idea.I'm going to sleep now.

>>844613*YoruWith that, thread continues within the next hour and a half, starting with a revote on the last choice. Stay tuned!
Actually just woke up on my desk. Looks like Red is more tired than expected, plus gotta sort out house stuff I just got called about.Thread will have to continue tomorrow.
Actually, if you're tuned in right now sound off. If there are enough voters waiting on this, I'll work through this and get back into the chair by 8:30pm.Not about to let the participants down.

>>853575Remember these guys?
>>853582How big is this room?Wait wait, no, like half the Scylla died. Forgot that for a minute.
>>853604an underground concrete dome 75 yards/68.58 meters in diameter with the door to the vault in it.
>>853628Why do you always deliver when I don't expect you to deliver.It's crabbing Tsunade's tit all over again. And the door to the bathroom opening on Asa's shower. And the special crit scene.You're a madman.
>>853657Fuck man I'm typing like shit tonight. It's like that guy in all the other quests intentionally typing like complete garbage. I don't know how people are falling for that.First sentence needs a question mark.Grabbing, not crabbing.
"Asa...go."She continues to fire arrows even faster, not allowing a single one of the opponents more than a couple of seconds to breathe. "I'm going as fast as I can Tai! You've got your chance coming up!"As she drives them off to one side with the constant barrage, you shake your head and turn back to her. "No, your chance is coming up, Asa. Amon still needs you; everyone still needs you. Get to safety, I'll finish things here!"As you motions maneuver to the Scylla for a few more seconds of distraction, Asa freezes horrified on realizing just what you'd suggested. "What? T-Tai...no. NO! What are you thinking!? Amon, we all still need you around! We...we still have a shot at this; we can still take h-""No, we can't....only I can now."Asa begins to choke on her own words. "If you open any more gates, we all know what will happen! I've watched you break 5, this isn't going to be any different! Why? Why do only you have to fight? You aren't saving anyone by dying! Why are you doing this?!""....Why? Because..."You look back to Asa, giving her one, last smile stretched from ear-to-ear. You have to fight. You have to keep punching forward...because...
I AM A HEROYou snap back into a crouch, the power building in your legs shatters the ground underfoot. The shockwave shakes the foundations of the concrete structure as you rocket away in a burst of prismatic fire! Your arms guide the Scylla in motions so quick, it simply looks like they follow your lead naturally and wall in the five monstrous opponents. Asa lets out a restrained, choking sob as she watches her friend...maybe even one of her family, now...leave. She grabs the small bag of objects and records recovered from the vault, taking the opportunity forced upon her to escape. "You'd better not die here today Tai...we're all counting on you."The scylla compress themselves even further as you seemingly blink into the air in front of Kakuzu. The two of you are encircled by a moving, breathing spherical prison!"A DECENT BOUNTY, HUNH? TELL ME, VILLAIN, IS KILLING MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY STILL THE EASY PAYOUT YOU THOUGHT IT WAS!?"Threads rip out from the man's body and attempt you skewer you, but you grab them in midair and rip the monsterous man even closer towards you! "REAL STRENGTH CAN'T BE MEASURED BY MONEY...LET ME SHOW YOU!ORAORAORAAAAA!!!"ROLL 3d100! First for Asa, next two for Tai! (ASA gets -5 to roll, Tai gets +50)DC 65DC 100, DC 95!

Rolled 53, 2, 76 = 131 (3d100)>>853805
Is Asa doing nothing clever enough to net any bonuses?
>>853814>>853828>>853831The dice tried. They tried as hard as they could.
>>853814>>853828>>853831so 46, 121, and 120
>>85384248, 121, 126 actually. You missed >>853831
>>853836Asa just has a straight sprint in front of her pretty much. She gets away due to roll #2 for Tai
>>853814>>853828>>85383148, 121, 126...poor Asa. She and Tai just can't get it together, together.
ORAORAORAORAORAORAORAORAORA!!!!!!The meteoric barrage of fists, each carrying the force to render stone to nothing more than dust, break apart the stitched man bit-by-bit! One heroic fist explodes against his body only to be immediately followed by another- and another! The little air between the two bodies seems to draw the two opponents together almost magnetically, the constant bombardment of blow forcing out almost all oxygen within the space- turning it into a nearly vaccum!ORAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!Your fists hit hundred-fold at a time. Kakuzu's eyes have long since bulged in disbelief as his body begins to swell and distend- any internal tissue reducing to nothing more than liquid from the unrelenting impacts!DHARMA PLATINUM: STAR BARRRRAAAAGE!One final sonic crack is all that marks your punch as the destroyed villain is blown to literal pieces, the black and red ooze gushing forth from each unstitched piece all that is left of whatever what had once been inside him. The beasts, moments before realizing they would never break the living barrier in time, release their fully charged attacks towards the speck running in the distance- she's nearly out!ASA!She turns in her last seconds. The only thing greeting her vision are the tidal, elemental forces: primeval catastrophes of Lighting, Wind, Fire, and Water all bear down to reduce her own body to dust. She closes her eyes, losing all hope of survival in that instant.(1/2)
I think you forgot to announce on twitter Red.
NEVER!She looks up in shock, the massive form of the prismatic-hued Tai in front of her, arms outstretched to take the brunt of the blast. GIVE!With another bellow, he turns fistfirst into the elemental hurricane. UP!It all stops abruptly as the elemental jutsus are absorbed by the Lotus Ring! You see four of its petals flashing deep Red, Blue, Yellow, and Green. But...Tai's back has been destroyed by taking the brunt of the initial attack for you, even if it was nullified moments later. Blackened skin and bone stick out from his shoulders. Robe and skin alike are fused together in the explosion. He turns back to you....His one, last smile still shining on in his face. "Go on, Asa...I'll finish this up here and catch up later."She knows this will be the last she sees Tai in this lifetime. Shine on, Tai...for all of us.Be the hero we always knew you were. Asa nods as she wipes away the tears. She hesitates, but in the end can't find the strength to give him a hug. She hates the monk as much as she respects him for this, for saving her......for giving up everything. Tai turns back to face his four opponents, watching the red masked demon drop down to the dismembered body of Kakuzu. It climbs back into the pieces, disassembling itself into threads and stitching the body together once more. Kakuzu's eyes shoot open, alive once more. He grimaces. "I'll have to replace that heart with yours, now. I should have been more careful...I won't make the same mistake twice."Your body begins to feel numb all over as the burst of strength slowly burns off. Sharp pains wrack you from all over...except your back, strangely. The bones in your arms must have fractured multiple times from that last attack...not to mention keeping up this speed is shredding the muscles in your legs as you speak. The only thing more destroyed than you or the room is the Scylla, the mass of fish evaporated completely from existence. He has...four more lives, then. NO TIME TO WASTE! THIS IS YOUR BATTLE ALONE NOW, NO HOLDING BACK!>PUSH FARTHER...stoke the fires of your life even hotter for all! Now is your time! This is your redemption, your final proof of conscience!

YOU WON'T GIVE THEM ONE.MORE.INCH! "HEY, VILLAIN, REMEMBER THESE WORDS IN HELL!"GOBEYOND!"DHARMA PLATINUM: EIGHT SPOKES..."Your scream pierces the heavens as the tentacled hellspawn shoot towards you alongside their frankenstein-like master, all releasing cataclysmic attacks of their own to combat your final, overwhelming surge! ONE SPOKE!Like a heavenly cannon, you fire your first, blasting fist forward! The Lotus ring shinies a bright red as it combines the chakra with your own. The blazing inferno of your aura ignites the air in front of you in a brilliant display of multicolored flames! The enemies release their attacks, only for the light grey-masked, beaked monstrosity to be thoroughly EVAPORATED from the column of pure, superheated air pressure! The blow jets forward, blasting a tunnel through the concrete dome, through the earth overhead, and into the very skies above as you continue on! THREE SPOKES!Your aura now amalgamates with the Lotus Ring's wind-natured chakra, you begin to shine an unearthly green as the winds screech around you! Another three fists at supersonic speeds, three pillars of howling, tornadic, emerald winds crash through enemy, concrete, and earth alike! The Yellow-masked demon is now unrecognizable, only small threads left of the once horrifyingly intimidating figure!SIX SPOKES!!Now, the room crackles uncontrollably as if the host to a hungry, divine thunderstorm! Six more fists boom like thunder, bearing witness to the strength of soul behind them! The two remaining opponents are filled with holes from the apocalyptic move! In a chorus of prismatic, reflecting lights dancing about your body like stars, you put all of your energy, your chakra, your soul into this final attack! The world seemingly stops as the sheer force of the gathered power in your body is expelled at once!(1/2)
DHARMA SPECIAL: EIGHT SPOKES...PLATINUM! !ULTRAAAAAAAAAA!OOOOOOOORRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAA!!!In a shockwave that cracks the earth, the eight simultaneous blows conjoin into a single, all-destructive wave of almighty scale! It shatters the room as it piles through the concrete foundation like wet paper, shining bright into the night sky above as the facility begins to implode from the supernova eviscerating it within! You smile as you collapse to your knees, chunks of cement and bedrock plumetting around you. You can no longer feel your body, your nerves shot and bones broken long ago. You smile one last time as you look up towards the deep, midnight sky peeking through the collapsing ceiling of earth and metal. It looks just like it did...all those years ago. That one, perfect night with her you could never forget...Maria, thank you for everything. The shadow of falling debris looms over your immobile figure.You've become great because of her...for her, even. You finally made your dreams come true, for the both of you...I am....A HEROFar above the cacophany of destruction, outside the midst of the imploding casino, Tsunade looks up with despairing, fearful eyes at the multicolored pillars of prismatic light blowing out of the ground itself and into the celestial window in the sky beyond.She looks back to her patient, chest curdled with blood and cut innumerably."No, no no no...please...please not this...not again! I shoudln't have...AMON!"She continues to heal the young man's grevious wounds, not noticing the single tear fall from the unconscious monk's eye. **********************************************************Calling it here!

>>854479>win some prime real estate>it immediately gets destroyedTough luck for yoru
>>854489eh, he can rebuild itSaves the costs of tearing down the old building that wasn't up to Norihime standards anyway
>>854479Man. Rin's plan was not worth it. Should've gone with the Shadow Raid.
>>854479Fuck. Tai. Fuck. You beautiful shit.Somebody post manly tears.
>>854489TAI IS DEAD
>>854498Eh Kazoo randomly showing up really had nothing to do with our plan
So how many innocent people just died due to the fire and riots and explosions?
>>854548And the several thousand pounds of concrete and metal raining down on the town?
>>854548Nobody died from the fire and the casino was evacuated!The riots on the other hand...sometimes Yoru gets a bit too lucky at the expense of others.
>>854557So I indirectly and vicariously killed dozens of people because of my luck?Well... it's not like it hasn't happened before...Fucking Russians just won't give up. Killed ~10 million in my last Germany game.
A big thanks to all the anons who participated tonight! Would reward with rare Asa...artist decided to make uh..."compromised" Amon instead
>>854607I... don't know what that could mean. I don't think I want to know what that means.
>>854613pseudo lewd Amon, something I never expected to see in my lifetime
>>854620sounds kinda gay. it's gay isn't it.
>>854627We're just gonna stick with rare Asa's for participants who stay to the end
>>854642That's more than fine with me.

So, what song is playing at Tai's funeral?
