>You are one of two young Tuffle twins, thrown at Earth starting in early Dragon Ball by your "father">"Canon" has already taken a sharp turn from the "norm," as you'll readily see, and can take even sharper turns depending on the thread's action/dialogue choices and ideas>Stats and dice mechanics will be used, and explained when needed as the quest progresses>Let's all try to have some fun, ok?Previously on Dragon Ball Tuffle Quest: your training with Baba continued, and now you've started on a quest to collect the Dragon Balls before the villainous Emperor Pilaf or monstrous King Gurumez get them first. With two down, and possibly five to go, things are looking up!
>>40647655Goku's growling stomach is something you think you'll come to fear if you aren't careful about this. Or at least if you don't cut him off, but he might not appreciate it. Then again, he managed to survive on his own fairly well without causing a few mass extinctions... you think. Hope. Perhaps some grub should be a priority, none of you have eaten since before noon.The town below the three of you has a variety of food available, though given your monkey boy friend's appetite, he probably won't care too mu- ...your brother is giving you a strange look. Was it something you sai- er, thought? Hrmn, might want to invest in learning to block out mind reading one of these days. If that's even possible."Ooooh... hungry..." Goku comments, rubbing his tummy. Might want to find something soon, before he does something regrettable.>A. Eat at one of the city restaurants>B. See if Goku wants to forage up something>C. Book it to Master Roshi's, maybe you'll be lucky enough to get something there before it's too late>D. Something else?
>>40647700>A. Eat at one of the city restaurantsWe rich as fuck
>>40647700>>A. Eat at one of the city restaurants>>40647732Oh but for how long?
>>40647700>BShenanigans, GO! Was catching up on your quest and saw this, figured i would drop in. Mind if i use a trip in your quest? I can drop it if you want.
>>40647700>B. See if Goku wants to forage up something
>>40647756Cell anon, get your ass back to prepping your own quest
>>40647756I just don't understand the point TO use it, but whatever.
>>40647756Don't mind, it's harmless. Let's just try not to make a big deal of it.
>>40647788 I did a ton of work last night i swear, i spent an an hourish off and on brainstorming and came up with stuff for how combat works. IT IS IN PROGRESS I SWEAR, PLEASE, DON'T LYNCH ME IM TOO YOUNG TO BE KILLED BY AN ANGRY MOB.
>>40647700>B. See if Goku wants to forage up somethingHe can probably catch something big enough to satisfy him for a few hours. No need to bankrupt ourselves and traumatize a chef and wait staff over preparing a twenty course snack.
>>40647700>your monkey boy friend'sOur brother probably heard those just two as one word.
>>40648180Brobro is going to tease us about that isn't he? Guess we'll just have to ramp up the teasing about Chi chi.
>>40648255We are on guard now. He will get no more ammunition from us.
How much do Tuffles eat? How often do Tuffles eat?
>>40648378I think we eat a lot, not as much as slogans though.
>>40647700"Say, uh, Goku, what do you usually eat? Or at least, what'd you eat when you were alone?" you ask him. Maybe you can save SOME of your money this way."I'd usually eat whatever I could catch." he replies with a grin. "There are probably some really yummy fish around here.""Huh, you know, it's been a while since we had fish. That sounds like a plan, Goku." Acer comments, consciously avoiding eye contact with you. "Want us to come with?""Nah, I can do it by myself." he responds, and the three of you fly down to a lake. You and brobro sit down at the shore while Goku promptly... Goku what are you doing. GOKU NO. ...too late. He's already naked, and before you or Acer have time to react he's handed you his clothes and jumped into the lake."...somehow I don't think he realizes some of the planet's social norms. Or taboos. Or Tuffle taboos, for that matter." Acer comments, giving you an accusing glare. "Hmnh.">A. ...what?>B. Try and read Acer's mind>C. Look at Goku's new outfit, try and analyze it, see if there's anything special to it>D. Something else?

>>40648437>D. Try not to stare, fail, stare a lot.
>>40648540No release date
>>40648530When i explain what swimming trunks are to you its gonna BLOW YOUR MIND
>>40648540Oh yeah?I missed E3 today, anything else interesting?
>>40648463Nintendo disappointed me hugely.
>>40648574Wouldn't a diving helmet be better?
>>40648600Lets go full scuba gear, undersea adventures go?
>>40648641There's a ball, there's a ball, there's a ball at the bottom of the sea~
>>40648600We want him to not be naked, A helmet won't cover anything.
>>40648655It'll cover his nose holes.
>>40648463At least they remembered Metroid exists...Holy shit though 3 games being worked on by Platinum, one of them TF, one of them fucking NIER of all things, and a Star Fox? What is even going on?Also, general need a bit of another vote. I think you folks know what it is. Yes or No. This is for now, things may change later.
>>40648566Winter 2016I would source but the video got pulled
>>40648699No, I don't see it.
>>40648699Yes or No to what, and why are we whispering?
No, aren't the Twins young as is? Let them keep that confusion of youth!
>>40648714I think it's whether we at some point in the future might husbando Goku.I'm in favour of it, Chi-chi has our brother, plus the look on Vegeta's face would be priceless.
>>40648714>>40648742What are you going to tell your brother?
>>40648699When you ask people a question, be specific in what you're asking, don't leave them confused.
>>40648749They are smarter than normal, but yeah they care kinda 9.>>40648758Its for if Maple likes him at all.
>>40648747Revisionyes, but deny it incessantly.
>>40648749I'm pretty sure tuffles do grow up, they're just short
>>40648765What are we going to tell our brother about what?
>>40648699>Yes but deny and get all embarrassed.
>>40648793Bro is about to ask, "do you like Goku?"
>>40648699>Not right now. But is that his wiener? We must examine further...
>>40648699>Yes, but deny it.
>>40648699We should put Goku in THE FUCK BOX
>>40648824Why is the QM being so unnecessarily vague?
>>40648846Because she didn't expect you to be so goddamn dense anon, Jesus Christ.
>>40648845He just got out of the FUCK BOX, it was a mountain cave with vines that wouldn't let him go.
>>40648858I have great social skillz!
>>40648858Well, I'm not a mind reader, anon. How am I supposed to know what Brobro is thinking?
>>40648923I don't know how was I able to figure it out almost immediately along with some other anons and you didn't? We aren't mind readers either.
>>40648952So you should be more sympathetic with how hard it is to read minds!
>>40648699If still open, No. He's just a monkey boy who's a friend.
>>40648699>I love you Brobro more than anyone else and I want to have 12 babies and get them each a puppy that are named after the zodiac constellations and then we'll grow old together after our kids all run off and then we'll both be dying and we'll only have each other left to hold as we go from this world just as we came into it
>>40648699>Deny... but secretly...
I AM SO CONFUSED
>>40648437"...what? What?" OK, what's your deal, brobro? He doesn't answer. Okaaaay, you're just asking for it now. You read your brother's mind and... and......You inhale deeply. "Nnnnnno.""Look I understand i-""No. Nah. Nope. Nada. Nuh-uh." You scratch the back of your head. Like, even if you did, you'd deny it. Think-deny it. Can you even do that? Might have to try some time."Got one!" Goku says as he jumps out of the water with a gigantic fish. You almost instinctively CLOTHES BEAM him a pair of swim trunks. He lands next to you, slightly confused. "Huh?""Goku, it's impolite to walk around naked. You're lucky you are around a girl that can summon clothes on command. Most others would try to smack you for doing that." you explain to him."It is?" he asks. He... genuinely did not know. Wow. You'd think Bulma would have at least said something. "Huh. Trip never really brought it up.""Tri- oh yeah, that lady you met." Acer thinks, looking over at the monkey boy's clothes. As Goku starts a fire to roast the fish, you can sort of detect a bit of magic on them. Not curses or traps, which is good, but you can't quite tell more without further careful investigation.>A. Ask Goku about his new clothes>B. Ask Goku about this Trip woman>C. Read Goku's mind, it'll be easier even if it seems a bit impolite>D. Something else?
>>40649119>B then A
>>40649119>>A. Ask Goku about his new clothes
>>40649119>B. Ask Goku about this Trip woman>D. Try not to sound jealous.
>>40649119>B. Ask Goku about this Trip woman>A. Ask Goku about his new clothes
>>40649119>>B. Ask Goku about this Trip woman>>A. Ask Goku about his new clothes
>>40649119>A. Ask Goku about his new clothes>B. Ask Goku about this Trip woman
>>40649262>>40649237You two got done making out to come post huh?
>>40649290For the moment, Chuckles needed to go to the shop for some lubeHappenings, anon, happenings.
>>40649353We going to finish roasting the rest of the Star Fox crew?
>>40649391Needs a white horsey.
Just a reminder, Goku did mention meeting big version of himself.
>>40649464Specifically he said this>after big me and the person with purple hair came byI'm guessing Trunks.
>>40649119"Who IS this Trip woman, anyway?" you ask Goku. Your brother seems on alert for any hint of jealousy in your voice. For the love of..."Well, she was on a journey westward to try and get this... scroll thing? I didn't really understand, but she helped me get out from under the mountain and it seemed only fair to help her." he explains as he tears off a couple chunks of the fish and gives them to you and your brother"Well, what was she like? And what's with the clothes she gave you?" You take a bite of the fish, looking at Goku's outfit."She was really nice. She had blue hair, and kinda reminded me of Bulma, but she didn't shout as much. She said that the clothes ward off evil... somethings. Like, the hat stops bad thoughts, and something else stops demon somethings. Oh, and they're really comfy!" The monkey boy immediately starts chowing down on the fish, eating about... half of it far faster than you care to think more on."So, did you get the scroll thing?" Acer asks like he already knows the answer. Apparently he read Goku's mind."Uh-huh, and I fought a lot of demons that wanted to hurt her! There was the White Bone Demon, the Yellow Robe Demon, the Green Lion Demon..."Acer sends you a telepathic message. Her "proper" name and title is apparently... Tripitaka Xuanzang Genjo Sanzo. Goku sort of knows that, but he can't really pronounce it all. It IS a bit of a mouthful for him... As the three of you finish the fish, Goku telling you more about his adventure, the sun finally dips below the horizon. It's night time now.>A. Stay where you are for the night>B. Head to Master Roshi's, Bulma and Yamcha are probably already there
>>40649570>>B. Head to Master Roshi's, Bulma and Yamcha are probably already thereRegroup
>>40649570>B, and ask about the big him that he met.
>>40649570>B. Head to Master Roshi's, Bulma and Yamcha are probably already there
>>40649610This seems good
>>40649570Huh, I wonder if the moon's back?
We should learn how to belly dance.
>>406496902 goddamn cyberdisks in a ufo.
>>40649570>>B. Head to Master Roshi's, Bulma and Yamcha are probably already thereNeed to examine Goku's clothes when Maple has a chance. Kato advised that in the ask.fm of his.
Rolled 2, 25, 20 + 50 = 97 (3d100 + 50)>>40649651Still moonless on regular Earth.>>40649845You found out some things about them. There's more to it.Also... rolling for someone.

>>40649913>>40649890That is remarkably bad.
>>40649890>>40649913Poor Krillin and Chichi.

Rolled 46, 82 = 128 (2d100)>>40649890>>40649913Rousingly medicore rolls. Or worse.
>>40649570"All righty, Bulma and Yamcha have probably made it to Master Roshi's, so let's get going. Should make it there before things get too late." you tell the boys."All righty! It'll be good to see them again." Goku grins wide, Acer nodding. As the three of you put out the fire Goku made and fly off, a thought crosses your mind."Goku, you said you met a... 'big you' and a person with purple hair, right?" He nods. "What exactly do you mean, was it like..." Actually you're not really sure how you want to phrase that, and if you want to think about the possibility it could mean."Well, big me was wearing an orange outfit, like what we wear! Only it had some blue on it instead. He shook my hand and pat me on the head, but then the purple person pulled him away before I could say anything. The purple person had a blue jacket and black pants, and he kinda reminded me of Bulma.""Huh. That's... strange." You scratch your head. The 'big Goku's' outfit seems neat, you guess, but the situation is odd. Your Scouter alerts you to a few Power Levels on Roshi's old island, but no Dragon Ball there. One sort of nearby, though. You see Bulma's 10, Yamcha's 285, and a few more that are higher than you recall. Landing, you're greeted by everyone, and find your old Master finally jumped up to a Power Level of 200, Krillin at 532, Chi-chi with 450, and... huh. Calm Launch, with a Turtle Shell on her back, and a Power Level of 65.>A. Say hi to everyone, check on how things have been>B. Ask someone something (specify who, what)>C. Ask Bulma about the Dragon Ball nearby>D. Something else?
>>40650119>Bulma's 10She's stronger than the Utahraptor that was chasing Chi-Chi when we first started player charactering.Does that mean that Bulma could 1 on 1 a Utahraptor?
>>40650119A, and inform them that the RRA is working with Pilaf.
>>40650161Maybe she is packing heat now.Nice calm launch is doing it too.
Did Launch have to find a babe for Master Roshi? Did Angry Launch brain him?
>>40650119>D. Something else?Get the dragonball nearby, bring it in, then>A. Say hi to everyone, check on how things have been>>40650182 makes a point, we should inform the people that RRA resistance members are working with the Pilaf gang.>B. Ask someone something (specify who, what)See if we can get Bulma talking about SCIENCE!, and do the mind reading thing on her. Why use words to communicate SCIENCE!, when you could communicate SCIENCE! DIRECTLY INTO YOUR BRAIN?
>>40650229You fool, you'll cross the streams! Never use magic to talk of SCIENCE!
>>40650119>A. Say hi to everyone, check on how things have been
>>40650281A scientist cares not for warnings, rituals or taboos. A scientist fucks with the laws of nature until they either do something cool or break.
>>40650161Possibly.>>40650219Calm Launch "brought" Angry Launch. Roshi agreed to train Launch after a hammer got involved in their conversation.>>40650338A scientist then makes sure to see if they can repeat the result. Then writes a paper on it.
>>40650365>Calm Launch "brought" Angry Launch. Roshi agreed to train Launch after a hammer got involved in their conversation.Well if they are both talking to each other and aware of each other more now, I wonder if they learn telepathy, can they talk to each other too?
>>40650119"Hi friends!" you give a cheerful wave, Goku doing the same. "How've things been?""We got to be volunteer firefighters!" Chi-chi informs you, Krillin and Launch nodding. "Sounds like you three have been up to a lot, too.""You could say that." Acer gives a bashful smile. "Sadly, this isn't just a friendly visit.""This Pilaf fellow, and Gurumes. Yes, sounds like quite a situation." Roshi strokes his beard."What was left of the Red Ribbon Army is working with Pilaf too! Some of them escaped justice." you announce. Everyone grows a little more serious."Let's all get inside, plan things out." Bulma says, looking at the ocean. You check where she's looking, and seem to see a Dragon Ball signal... way down deep. Crap. Neither you nor Acer could hold your breathes that long, and you doubt even Goku could. Clothes Beam might make some diving suits, but perhaps there's some easier way... You then give her the same mental message about you and Acer being 'Newtypes' you did to Yamcha as you walk in with everyone. However, she simply laughs, and then thinks, quite clearly, that Yamcha already told her about it."So, it's getting late, but since you already have a Dragon Ball, and Oolong and Puar have that tiger back at Capsule Corp, things should be fairly easy for us all. The next Dragon Ball is on the ocean floor, so we can head there now, or wait until morning. What does everyone think?""I'm ready right now!" Goku shouts, tail wagging. Krillin and Chi-chi seem to agree."I'd rather stay here on my island, not enough room in my submarine for too many folks." Roshi strokes his beard, and you can tell he's looking at Launch lecherously. Some things never change..."I dunno," Acer rubs his chin. "What do you think, Maple?">A. Do it now, don't want to risk anyone going in ahead of you>B. Wait until morning, you earned a break>C. Ask someone something? (who, what?)>D. Something else?
>>40650365Reminds me of that Quantum sorting algorithm whose steps include "Destroy the Universe".The Qsort assumes that true randomness splits the universe into two possible futures whenever the randomness is resolved into a 0 or a 1.Thus, to sort a list, it randomises the list using true randomness. Then, it checks to see if the list is sorted. If the list is not sorted, it destroys the universe.This ensures that in any universe where the list is observed, after being Qsorted, then the list is ordered (as no observers exist in the destroyed universes to see the unordered list)It works in theory, but has some ethical concerns in practice.A similar method allows you to force all d20s to roll a 20.Simply set up a system that destroys the universe whenever a d20 comes up 1 through 19.You are then living in a universe where d20s violate statistics.
>>40650739>B. Wait until morning, you earned a break
>>40650739>A. Do it now, don't want to risk anyone going in ahead of you
>>40650739>>A. Do it now, don't want to risk anyone going in ahead of you
>>40650739Kato, since we can predict the short-term outcomes of our actions, does that mean we can do: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KN7FXEl4NhQ ?It seems as though a power like that would be really problematic for you, as you'd have to write a lot more.
>>40650822It's more of a Spider-sense/Newtype flash/non-useless, short-term version of Bardock's ability. More attuned towards dangers, specifically, but you have a little foresight into other things too. Takes some clear focus, as well, or else it ends up EXACTLY like Bardock's.Please try not to abuse them. It can backfire.
>>40650739>A. Do it now, don't want to risk anyone going in ahead of youThe RR had the means of constructing sophisticated battle armor, planes, and tanks. There's probably some subs in there that weren't deployed during any of the gang's fights with the RR army for obvious reasons.
>>40650970Goku destroyed all their subs.
>>40650822>>40650950The way I see it, mixing foresight and telepathy gives you a slight edge on people at your power level, and can even things up against people a tier higher, slightly.Against someone way higher, you just see the multiple ways you die.
Guys, do we want the Dragon Ball, or do we wanna stick around to get the Red Submarine?
>>40651136Does it have Sean Connery at the helm?
>>40651195Sorry, in a thread on /sp/.
>>40651136Well, the Dragon Ball can summon Shenron ZERO, so if you want the other Dragon Ball that has all the summons to be mastered and spawn new ones, we'd best get this Dragon Ball.
>>40651238Although the Red Submarine looks cooler than the regular submarine, at the end of the day it's just a submarine and we're not going to be using it all that much, besides ramming Oceanus SHENRON with it and getting ganked.
>>40650739You cross your arms. "Let's go now. Don't want to risk anyone getting ahead of us. After all, if the Dumb Name Army could construct countless planes, tanks, and even a giant robot, who's to say they don't have a few submarines lying around?""Eh, Goku did sort of blow most of them up, but you have a point." Bulma informs you. Wait what. "If Pilaf had the resources to recruit and restock them, they probably have subs around the world, most likely new ones. And if they're already hunting the Dragon Ball, then you'd be right in going for it soon.""Clever as always, Bulma." Yamcha praises his girlfriend. "Well, I'm up for it. How many people can your submarine hold, Master Roshi?""Let's see... well, three, maybe four if some of the kids pile in." the old man takes out a Capsule."I brought a spare. It can seat four." Bulma does the same. "So, plenty of room. We'll need one person per sub to pilot it. I know Yamcha is with me, so...""Chi-chi and I can operate Master Roshi's." Krillin informs you all. "We should be good."I'll stay here with him." Launch, who had sneezed quietly during the conversation and turned into her blonde self, added. "It'll be good to keep 'home base' ready in case anything happens.""Aw Launch I knew you ca-" Roshi starts, but is cut off by a bonk on his head. Interestingly, your Scouter picks up an increase in her Power Level. It's 215 now. Huh. Is... that possible?"Well, I'd like to go with Krillin and Chi-chi. It's been way too long since I last saw you guys!""How about us, Maple?" Acer asks. Good question.>A. Bulma's group, they need the backup just in case>B. Have you or Acer go with the other Turtle Students>C. Something else?
>>40651313>>A. Bulma's group, they need the backup just in case
>>40651313>A. Bulma's group, they need the backup just in case
>>40651313>B. Have you or Acer go with the other Turtle StudentsBulma's smarter than us. Yamcha's taller than us. I'm sure they can handle themselves!
>>40651313It occurs to me, one day, in the far, far future.When Goku goes SSJ.Maple will have the idea to dye her hair blonde and see if her PL jumps by a fuckhuge amount.
>>40651313>>A. Bulma's group, they need the backup just in caseGoku will go with the other turtle students.
>>40651313Send Acer to the Turtle student sub.Go personally to Bulma's sub.Use telepathy to keep in contact.
>>40651410Maybe clothes beam a hair pin into his hair, as it is standing up?Or a hair pick?
>>40649690Followup to the linked situation.Survey says 26/27 people enjoy mind rape.
>>40651313>B. Have you or Acer go with the other Turtle StudentsWe can go, Acer can go with Yamcha and Bulma, he can call for help on his scooter if they run into trouble.
>>40651313>B. Have you or Acer go with the other Turtle Students
>>40651313>B. Have you or Acer go with the other Turtle StudentsWe each have a scouter, should make it easier to keep in touch.
>>40651313>C. Do the Tuffle Shuffle
>>40651620Bulma also has her Dragon Scouter.
>>40651617My life is complete.
>>40651313"Brobro, you go with the other Turtle Students, I'll go with Bulma and Yamcha. That way we can keep in touch in a couple ways.""Ah, okay, sure. I get what you mean." he turns to Goku, Krillin, and Chi-chi, all of them nodding as Master Roshi gives them the Capsule. As your group heads outside, Bulma and Krillin toss the capsules into the air, producing two vehicles. Krillin and your other young friends all group into one, while you, Bulma, and Yamcha head into the other."Going down!" Bulma shouts. As you head into the deep, dark seas, only the lights of the submarines to really guide you, there're a number of strange and beautiful fish around, along with a few fantastic looking giant rays. Bulma and yourself manage to locate the Dragon Ball with your Scouters, but sadly, it's in a small fissure. Acer recommends just blasting the Ball out of there, but Bulma finds a way in, a small cave area. Both subs head in, yours first."You know, this reminds me of the tale of the Pirates' Treasure." Krillin informs Acer, your brother letting you hear it. "Apparently there's a legend of all the treasure that they managed to gather in these seas all sunken down in a fissure at the bottom of the ocean.""Wondering if the legends might be true, huh?" you ask aloud. As you head into the cave, you're more than surprised by what you see. An entire underwater base, and a modern one at that, complete with their own submarines and structures that almost look like buildings. You, Bulma, and Yamcha leave the sub, taking in the bizarre surroundings.>A. Investigate together, try to look around>B. Split up to cover more ground>C. Wait for the others to get here>D. Something else?
>>40652083>>A. Investigate together, try to look aroundhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QiPon8lr48U
>>40652083>B. Split up to cover more groundIf we were anyone else, I'd advise against splitting up the party.
>>40652083Scout for power levels.Does anyone have any electricity-sensing equipment? If so, use that. If not, god damn it people update your scouters to include sensing robots.
>>40652126Robots and other machines are incredibly hard to sense in "traditional" ways. They would give you a blank reading on your Scouter.
>>40652157Hence why they asked about ways to sense electricty.
>>40652157Sounds like they need to work with bulma to program a way to sense magnetic fields by strength.Look for power sources.>>40652083>>B. Split up to cover more ground
>>40652083>A. Investigate together, try to look around
>>40652389Wow Chuckles, didn't know you were such a COWARDly
>>40652434I didnt know I was such a cowardly either, anon
>>40652468This is the one Dragon Ball quest that I have a hard time seeing any cameo's showing up in Space Monkey's.
>>40652503Who's to say it won't be the other way around? Kato. Kato has the final say.
>>40652503At least let it get to Z before crossovers are even a thing.
>>40652083You check the area with your Scouter. The only signal it's picking up is the Dragon Ball. Everything else is barren. Empty. It's like a ghost town here. Heh. Ghost."This place gives me the creeps." Bulma expresses, crossing her arms and scooting closer to Yamcha."Yeah. Somehow feels like something is... watching us." Yamcha comments, Bulma gripping his shirt tighter."Might be good to stick together, then?" you ask. Both of them agree. You slowly explore the area, heading into the main building structure."Ah, sis, Bulma?" Acer contacts you over the Scouter."What's wrong?" Oh this can't be good... You hear strange sounds coming from the Scouter, a low rumble echoing through the cave."The cave has... moved. We're nowhere close to you guys. We'll try to head in where we can. Be on guard, something's up."Bulma gulps. "I'm... still not getting a reading on any lifeforms. W-wait..." Her Scouter flashes for a moment, and so does yours. Something with a Power Level of 100 is in the area, but not close by. Then you hear it.Footsteps. Heavy ones. Then they're gone, a slow, quiet hum replacing them. You focus for a moment..."M-m-m-maple... Y-y-y-y-yamcha... w-what is that?" Bulma clings to her boyfriend tighter.You sense it in a flash. "GET BACK!" you shout as a titanic form lunges at you all, with speeds you're not sure you like. The three of you turn to see what the thing is.It's... a robot? A pirate robot?>A. Ask it to identify itself>B. Engage the machine, this doesn't look friendly>C. Get Bulma to safety, it might try to target her>D. Something else?
>>40652532True, Kato has final say.>>40652534I should of thought of that, going to be like another 30-40 threads at least until Z. Still 2 tournaments, and a few major plot points.>>40652580>>A. Ask it to identify itself
>>40652580>>C. Get Bulma to safety, it might try to target herThen>B. Engage the machine, this doesn't look friendly
>>40652580>B. Engage the machine, this doesn't look friendlySomeone else should>C. Get Bulma to safety, it might try to target herGet down to business.
>>40652580>B. Engage the machine, this doesn't look friendly>D. Have Yamcha get Bulma out
>>40652083>A. Investigate together, try to look around>D. Scouter around, see if anything picks up. Also tell Brobro where we went.
>>40652580>A. Ask it to identify itself
>>40652580>B. Engage the machine, this doesn't look friendlyTHIS IS IT, GUYS! THE FINAL BATTLE!
>>40652580"What are you?" you ask."...BAWOOM." Its eyes flash to light. An electronic voice answers. "YARR. WALK THE PLANK"You take that as the cue to swiftly punch its lights out. "You asked for this, buddy! MAPLE SMASH!""Maple, no!" Yamcha tries to stop you."MAPLE YES!" You fly at the machine, your fist ramming into its chest. It... backs up slightly. Uh-oh. "Yamcha, move Bulma away from this thing!" you shout as you narrowly avoid its sword."Don't have to tell me twice." he says as he picks up the purple-haired lady, flying to the building area."Brobro, Pirate Robot here! And it's strong!" you shout over the Scouter, using the Izumi Combo to try and knock this thing back. The whole machine seems way stronger than anything you're used to, even that giant Red Ribbon mech wasn't this tough."Trying to get there, but there's an entire room of lava ahead of us, we're trying to be careful. Be there soon, sis!"Wait, lava? Wha- woah! You back up from the Pirate Robot, now taking a proper martial arts stance. All right robot thing, let's dance."SHIVER ME TIMBERS.">A. Go for Melee, MAPLE SMASH! FOR REAL THIS TIME!>B. Energy attack, let's see how this thing stands up to some real punishment!>C. Clothes Beam, try to blind and trap it!>D.

>>40652898 You are the hero of the dice as of this moment forward, ENLIGHTEN US OH CRIT SAVIOR, SHOW US THE WAY OF THE DICE!
>>40652898Maple is now Bruce.
>>40653029Fuck off with that lazy power fantasy of a quest.
>>40652991 Ill have you know just the other day i walked into a room and grabbed a d20 from a friend trying to sacrifice crits to the dice gods and rolled a crit on the first roll. N-no im not jealous i can never get tg dice to work when i counts. No im not ruining my keyboard with tears of eternal despair.
>>40652836So. Punching it didn't work. Time to pull out the big guns. It lunges at you, firing a barrage of bullets from its other arm. You quickly avoid them and go for the arm, trying to disable it. You focus a bit, and knock it upwards, somehow managing to break off the machinegun part... only for it to try and roast you with its flamethrower. Leaping out of the way, you take to the air... and the Pirate Robot FOLLOWS you, using a jetpack of its own. You focus your ki to a point in your finger, and with a shout of "GESIT MAGNUM!" knock its sword away and snap it in two.Yamcha appears from one of the rooms up above. "Maple, we'll try and find a way to shut it down, just hold o-""NOT A CHANCE! This thing is dangerous, I'm blasting it here and now!" you respond, cupping your hands together. No chances. "Kaaaa... meee... haaaaaa... meeeee...."It flings its tail at you, now visibly covered in electricity. You dodge aside, narrowly avoiding it in midair. "SAA! KAIZOKU NO JIKAN DA!"...what? No, never mind. You fling your hands forward and unleash your attack. "HAAAAAA!" The blue and white beam blasts into the machine, sending it flying down to the ground and ripping it apart. Pieces of the robot fly all over. The head lands at the entrance to the building. It... looks at you. It's still alive. Well, functional. You float down and look at the machine. It's oddly quiet now. Heh, guess it wasn't expecting that.>A. Taunt it (write-in?)>B. Scoop up the head and try to find Bulma and Yamcha>C. Destroy it>D. Contact someone (who?)>E. Something else?
>>40653056>that quest>mfw playing itTo each their own.Personally, I find it amusing, Bruce will start to taper off, soon, then will have to actually train to get some power. Broly makes a good foil that way, since her power is MAXIMUM, and will likely continue to grow forever at a steady pace.But now I'm talking other quests in this one, and that is a shamefur dispray, and I shall cease.
>>40653235>>B. Scoop up the head and try to find Bulma and Yamcha
>>40653235>B. Scoop up the head and try to find Bulma and YamchaMake sure it doesn't try and bite us or electrocute us though.
>>40653235>B. Scoop up the head and try to find Bulma and Yamcha>E. "What is your deal?"
>>40653235>B. Scoop up the head and try to find Bulma and YamchaHey KatoWhich DBZ quest which isn't your own is your favourite?
>>40653235>>B. Scoop up the head and try to find Bulma and YamchaHave Bulma capsule the scraps.
>>40653235>A. Taunt it (write-in?)>B. Scoop up the head and try to find Bulma and YamchaLooks like some one got aHEAD of themself.
>>40653235>>B. Scoop up the head and try to find Bulma and Yamcha>A. Taunt it (write-in?)"You never get ahead in life by being a jerk you know, you might still have a good head on your shoulders if you didn't let being a bigshot pirate get to your head."
>>40653328>>40653423>no joke about how he'll never be the head of a pirate crew
>>40653235Carefully, you pick up the decapitated robot head. It stays silent, not even attempting to move its jaw. If you didn't know better, you might almost think this thing was... scared of you, now. Can a machine like this even feel fear? You smirk a little. "Looks like someone got aHEAD of themselves.""...Never do that again." Acer warns over the Scouter. Huh, seems he was keeping check telepathically. Aww, brobro was worried. "Don't want you getting into trouble, sis."You chuckle regardless, and then think up more puns. "You never get aHEAD in life by being a jerk you know, you might still have a good head on your shoulders if you didn't let being a big-shot pirate get to your head. Not it looks like you'll never be the head of a pirate crew." Your brother groans in annoyance at each one, to the audible confusion of Krillin, Chi-chi, and Goku. You can hear Bulma snicker a little. You then make the machine face you. "What is your deal, anyway?""YARR. OCTOPAPA.""...what?" What. No, just... maybe this thing isn't good for conversation. You fly up to where Bulma and Yamcha are, what looks to be a... rather advanced computer room, a skeletal figure of a pirate in a chair with a knife in its chest."Ah, Maple, glad you got rid of that thing." the young woman gives with a sigh of relief. "This is definitely a Pirate base of some kind, but... this whole thing makes no sense. This place is HUNDREDS of years old. It has some languages that don't even exist anymore.""...HUNDREDS?" you repeat. That... wow."What's more, there are some strange files on these computers... Maple, it looks like this place might have some pretty deep secrets." she shows you a number of odd links on the screen.>A. Treasure Status>B. Patrol Status>C. Crew Status>D. Mech Status>E. King Piccolo Sightings>F. All of the above?
>>40653659>>F. All of the above?Of course do everything.Its almost as tempting as mystery boxes.
>>40653659>E. King Piccolo SightingsHabbening
>>40653659F. Let's be honest, that's what everyone always really tries for
>>40653659>>E. King Piccolo Sightings
>>40653659>F. All of the above?Treasure first, Piccolo second, Mech third, who cares about the rest.
>>40653659>>F. All of the above?This planet is weird, so much high tech mixed in randomly.
>>40653659"Sis, we've got the Dragon Ball, looks li- Goku put that mouse down! No don't put it in your mouth, you don't know where it's been!" Acer contacts you via the Scouter. You'd be overjoyed, but this thing in front of you is... interesting."Come meet up with us, brobro, we're looking at something here." you reply. You check the file on the treasure first. It brings up a monitor with a large statue and three chests, your friends near it, Chi-chi giggling as your brother chases Goku around, Krillin looking at one of the chests.[TREASURE STATUS: SECURE. TRAPS >SET.]"Huh. Acer, looks like you might've found more than the Dragon Ball. Are you in a room with a statue?" Bulma asks."Huh? How did... ah, a camera." he says as he looks directly at it. "Dragon Ball was in a shallow pool there.""I'm deactivating the traps in this room, looks like there's treasure here." you tell them and do just that. Next item on the list, the mech.[MECH 1 - 19 STATUS: DEACTIVATED. MECH 20 STATUS: ONLINE. WARNING: STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY AT 5%.](cont.)
>>40654088...there are 19 more of these things. Let's not wake them up. Yeah. Checking the crew status, it lists everyone as 'deceased.' Well, that explains it. Patrol status is listed as having never returned to base, something about an... octopus? You look at the Robot's head. It looks back but stays silent. The final item on the list is the one that seems most chilling. "King Piccolo Sightings." You open it up, and it lists a number of dates. Each of them over 300 years ago, each with a warning of what lanes to avoid due to him and his "spawn." You check for more information on this "King Piccolo."It gives you videos. Nightmarish, horrible videos. Monsters rampaging through cities, slaughtering people left and right. Horrors your mind starts to link to your implanted memories about the destruction of the Tuffles by the Saiyans. Except... these people can't even hope to fight back. A tall, green humanoid figure is the last one seen, the ancient audio distorting its laugh into something that you'll never forget. You close the file and sink back a bit, bumping into Bulma. She seems equally shocked, Yamcha faring no better. You feel ill.>A. Ask them what you just saw>B. Tell Acer you want out of this place, now>C. Tough it out as best you can, try and find something else>D. Something else?
>>40654088........Oh this is bad.Yeah pretty sure this is bad.
>>40654110>>A. Ask them what you just saw>>C. Tough it out as best you can, try and find something else
>>40654110>>B. Tell Acer you want out of this place, now>MAXIMUMNOPE.JPGFollowed by>A. Ask them what you just saw
>>40654110>>A. Ask them what you just saw>B. Tell Acer you want out of this place, now
>>40654110You find yourself gripping Bulma's shirt, clinging to her. "What... what was that..." you ask neither of them in particular. Yamcha stays silent. He's still taking it all in."That... I've never read or heard about anything like that. I... I have no idea, Maple." Bulma seems like she's trying to stay strong, but you're not sure your reaction is making her feel any better."...we're leaving." you tell them both. You try to contact your brother via your Scouter. "Brobro we're leaving. No-""YOU PUT THEM DOWN YOU OVERSIZED APPETIZER!" you can hear him shout, Chi-chi loudly charging a Kamehameha near him."It's been sooooo long since Octodaddy had COMPANY! Why don't you join your friends, little girl?~" a strange, uncomfortable voice "BROBRO WE ARE LEAVING NOW." you scream. He attempts to ask what's wrong, but is cut off as something apparently grabs him. The strange voice starts chuckling in the background, but not for long as Chi-chi fires at it. Goku and Krillin can be heard sighing in relief moments later. As the four celebrate, you telepathically repeat your demand. Acer tries to respond, but then it becomes all too clear to him what happened. All of you quickly make it to your subs and leave the gods-forsaken place with the 3-star Dragon Ball and some treasure Krillin managed to grab."FEAR IT." the head of the Pirate Robot warns you on your way up. "HIS RETURN."https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5vegOvyYCec>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST #12 END>Twitter account is @KatoQm, will have status updates there>Got some questions for the QM? Characters? Suggestions? Throw them at ask.fm/QMKato and I'll try to answer them as best I canThat's all for tonight, folks. I'll be here like usual for any questions and other stuff. Did ya'll have fun?
>>40654511Yeah i had fun kato, this was my first time playing since the first thread. I like it a bunch so far and will return for the next one if schedule allows.
>>40654511Thanks for the run boss.'Short' thread huh?
>>40654539>>40654546Thanks for playing!Shorter than the previous ones, though I guess this did go a bit longer than I anticipated. Kinda' tried to make sure there was a good stopping point, too.
>>40654511It was a good thread. Was a bit distracted with the Steam summer sale going on, though. I wonder if Piratebot could become an ally, or at least the basis for future allies later on.
>>40654721He becomes our wisecracking pirate skull that acts as a comic relief who occasionally puts forth damn good advice to save the day of course!
>>40654693In addition to the Dragon Ball they found, Krillin managed to score some gold totaling about 200,000 Zenni in value (or about half a Goku's worth of food), a diamond the size of his fist, a jade bowl with a gold trim, and one Blood Ruby. The cave is still there, nothing has happened to it, but who knows how the other robots will react if someone else tries to enter.>>40654721Pirate Robot is not entirely sapient. It's about as smart as an average crow. Though there might be some useful things in its mind, and Bulma would certainly like to take a look inside. At least she would be some time when she isn't dealing with witnessing the records of a 300 year old genocide of Earthlings by monsters. Anyway, we'll see how it plays out.
Thread has been archived.
>>40654967Thanks anon!Also, gonna be honest here, a bit glad ya'll have kinda decided to not try to jump on the first opportunity for, ah, making Vegeta experience disgust and rage that even HE didn't think he was capable of. Or at least not admitting it outright. It'll make writing things later down the line a bit easier, and more interesting.
>>40653659>YARR. OCTOPAPA.Is this robot one of the Pieces of Eight that the great pirate king left behind?
>>40655106So, King Piccolo's whole deal is that he wishes yo be young again, and needs the dragon balls to achieve that. Can't he do the simpler thing by just spawning Jr. immediately and combining with him, giving himself both youth and a power boost?
>>40659108Problem there is it wouldn't necessarily be him. Evil bastards tend to prefer to reign themselves instead of their children doing it for them.
>>40659249Junior wouldn't have much personality at that point besides what King Piccolo programs into him.
>>40659234He'd be disgusted by a Saiyan marrying and interbreeding with a Tuffle.
>>40659808I figure Goky and Maple would be an interesting match, especially with how much of a red headed firecracker she is.I have trouble seeing her match up well with most of the other cast in Dragonball.Better to wait anyways.
>>40660130Oh I do too, I'm looking forward to all the salt we'll get from Geeters
>>40660212Then Kato would get a chance to write a tsun Maple who is NOT in love with Goku!And Goku would be too dense to notice. Bulma and Acer could then Troll/tease Maple.
>>40659016I wish I'd thought about that joke yesterday. Hah. Sadly no, it's actually one of the characters in the canon Pirate Base arc. Giant octopus that talks like it plays with its food. Acer, Goku, Krillin, and Chi-chi fought it while you, Bulma, and Yamcha learned about King Piccolo.>>40659108>>40659249>>40659561Junior was basically the packup plan in case his body failed, in canon. Apparently making another "pure" Namekian is far more difficult for him than vomiting up the monstrous ones. Plus it would take a lot of time to accomplish it, years longer than the immediate boost of the youth wish. Here... things have a chance of becoming even more complicated.>>40659808>>40660212Bingo. Made all the worse if you start questioning him about who King Vegeta was, exactly. A Saiyan "as smart as a Tuffle" that has kids that are on the short side, for Saiyan standards. That led the Saiyans in the war against the Tuffles. Hmm. HMM.Probably isn't true, but implications of your accusations would make Veggie so mad. SO MAD.>>40660130>>40660320It will certainly result in some more fun, and funnier things to write later on. And some more... well, serious ones. You'll see when they happen. Do keep in mind the age difference between you two, though. Any hobbits would be much younger than canon Gohan.
>>40660964>Bingo. Made all the worse if you start questioning him about who King Vegeta was, exactly. A Saiyan "as smart as a Tuffle" that has kids that are on the short side, for Saiyan standards. That led the Saiyans in the war against the Tuffles. Hmm. HMM.Probably the never mentioned wife of the King was the brains of the operation. Love or something. In the picts shown the King was normal Saiyan height I think. Geets and his brother are short, and his brother has almost a tuffle like personality.I don't see a reason to turn him to a pillarvof salt though. Maple would do it though. She would so do it.
>>40660964I'm more of a Goku/Bulma guy but like >>40660130 said I can't really see Maple with that many other people.
>>40661287You have JUST enough circumstantial evidence to make Vegeta question it himself, if you ever do think on doing so. Even if it isn't true, boy oh boy his reaction to such accusations...>>40661332I will say again, Goku will be the hardest to successfully romance due to him being, well, Goku. It would be a bit easier to play wingman for another girl. And there are like, at least 3 other redheads out there thanks to movies and filler. Regardless of how successful such an endeavor will be, though, what ya'll have decided on here will have some interesting implications to play with later down the line.
>>40661529So you're saying helping another girl romance Goku would be EASY MODO?
>>40661529>I will say again, Goku will be the hardest to successfully romance due to him being, well, Goku. It would be a bit easier to play wingman for another girl. And there are like, at least 3 other redheads out there thanks to movies and filler.The biggest issue is the lack of good matches for Maple herself. Most of the guys don't seem to be a good potential fit with her.She's a bit weird and sometimes quite hot blooded. And younger then most of the cast.
>>40661692I mean it wouldn't be too hard for when Bulma gets a little attracted to Goku after he hits puberty at the WMAT to nudge her and say 'Go tap that'.
>>40661692Easier than others. Actually, I'll take it back. Goku will be among the most difficult. Maple-Must-Die mode is probably like, Vegeta. Near-impossible. Kaguya had a better chance of doing it successfully.>>40661817Comedy option: Mr. Mark "Hercule" Satan. Similar age range.>>40661908Well, canonically she did kinda start pondering on it since the 23rd Tournament. Continued up to Namek.Then she went and had a kid with Veggie. Hmm. HMM.
>>40662101I GOT IT!We hook up and somehow convince canon Future Trunks to stay with us.Pretty much impossible I know.
>>40662137I dunno, Hercule seems pretty awesome.
>>40662101See that pic is part of the reason I wanted to try a Goku/Bulma in this quest.Though I feel like that'll be an uphill battle against most of the anons in this quest. I'll try though.
>>40662161>Red headed VidelHuh, I am not totally against this.And she was kinda short in canon too.We'd need to meet and influence Hercule early so he doesn't go all media hound, etc.
>>40662213>We'd need to meet and influence Hercule early so he doesn't go all media hound, etc.Like he can out HAM Maple?Just find him before his master is killed.
>>40662363>Like he can out HAM Maple?Good point, it'd be fun to see them compete.>Just find him before his master is killed.Maybe be at the right place and the right time to save his master.
>>40662213Wait, you want to take away Hercule's advantage over other Z fighters in the future and what he brings to the table (public opinion/support by lending energy/whatever he did with Buu)? Him as a public figure can be a rather useful thing at times.
>>40662591Well lets be honest, Maple isn't going to shy away from the public the way she hams it up. Shes already a WMAT champ.
>>40662622Why not let them be King and Queen of Ham together then? Also, possibly laugh if Gohan becomes a thing and Videl begins going after him.
>>40662651I'm about it.
>>40662137There's a chance it will not be canon Future Trunks that you meet. A chance.>>40662161>>40662213>>40662363>>40662386>>40662591>>40662622>>40662651>>40662659We'll... see how this goes. Ya'll are gonna have to keep your eyes peeled in the time around the 23rd Tournament, I'll say that much.>>40662173Who knows, you might succeed. I've had to come up with ideas for a lot of possible results for who Goku ends up with. Some of the potential kids have black hair. Some have purple hair. Some have red. I've planned ahead for a lot of potential outcomes. A LOT.
>>40662735>Ya'll are gonna have to keep your eyes peeled in the time around the 23rd Tournament, I'll say that much.I will. The hard part is going to convince ~20 other anons not just go lolMonkeyhobbits or lolVegetaSalt.
>>40662784That pairing could work, but if it comes to shipping poster numbers mighy go from 5 per vote to like 30
>>40663014Its always funny seeing that in quests The few of us that actually participate every vote is around 5 but the moment that kind of vote comes up lurkers come of out the fucking darkness.
>>40662735Doesn't Hercule have that whole ptsd thing about energy attacks?
>>40662784>>40663014>>40663065We'll see what happens when we get there. You still have bigger things ahead.>>40663247That came as a result of his master being killed by Tao and Crane.
>>40662784>People who want Goku are just retards looking for laughs.I mean there's no way they could like that pairing for other reasons, right?
>>40663368>We'll see what happens when we get there. You still have bigger things ahead.Pssh what could be more important that shipping? I kid.>>40663416That's not what I meant. I can see the pairing working easily. But I feel it needs to be more natural and I didn't get that vibe from the vote >>40648699 here. I felt like they just wanted go tsundere at 9 years old with no prior moments where Maple implied anything other than they were just friends.
>>40663486I get ya, I get ya, you gotta be the childhood friend before you win.
>>40663416>>40663486>>40663578On a broader level, it would certainly make for an interesting addition to the sort of theme here. But again, I'm glad there's no immediate jump on doing it at the first chance.
>>40663839>But again, I'm glad there's no immediate jump on doing it at the first chance.Exactly, play the long game. We have plenty of time.
>>40663839>doing it at the first chance.Jeez Kato, she's only 10!
>>40663896Plenty of time, sure, if ya'll end up pursuing him. You will have to confront things related to this, some day.>>40663902haw
>>40664372The Legion of Doom? We're going to face Lex Luthor in a SCIENCE! off?
