>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: You've made it through the Preliminaries of the 23rd World Martial Arts Tournament! But before your match with Piccolo in the first round, Garlic Jr.'s minions started causing trouble...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K8JwUGR9Sok
>>42624918Garlic Jr. calls his minions back to him, the two in the arena walking out in shame. Shen... gives an odd look to him, but heads back inside. You walk over to him, glaring, Goku with you as Chi-chi and Launch help Tien out of the arena. Chi-chi tries to heal his wound... but it doesn't seem to want to heal completely. The Triclops flinches in pain, grabbing his chest. Garlic grins at you all too smugly. "That is quite a wound you have there.""W-what... is.. AGH..." Tien grips his chest, Chi-chi ready to try to heal him again."Don't bother. Ginger's blades have been... you could say, enhanced, by something. Trying to heal it like that will only make things worse." Garlic Jr. states in a tone that's trying to be apathetic but you can tell he's enjoying this way, way too much. Launch glares at the pale blue imp like she wants to rip his head off. "However... as an apology for the behavior of my cohorts, I have something that can heal it completely. Will you allow me to help you?">A. Tien, it's a trick! You know what they just tried to do!>B. Garlic, if you pull ANYTHING else here, I'll...>C. Try to see if you can heal it with Chi-chi, maybe get Trip and Nam down here as well>D. Tien's choice, don't say anything>E. Something else?
>>42624930>>D. Tien's choice, don't say anythingHow's it going Kato?
>>42624930>D. Tien's choice, don't say anything>E. Something else?Telepathically 'Trip? Any ideas about what this is and how to counter it?'
>>42624930I'll support this: >>42625036
we need more 80s slang
>>42624930>>D. Tien's choice, don't say anythingTien was a assassin, so he should see through this pretty easy.
>>42624930As untrustworthy as Garlic might seem right now... it's Tien's choice. Still, doesn't mean you have to sit around and just let Garlic do whatever he wants. You contact Trip telepathically. 'Any ideas what this might be? Tien's in a lot of pain here, and that wound isn't healing up...'It takes her a moment to really go over the situation, Chiaotzu managing to head over to Tien in the meantime. Finally, she comes up with an answer. 'It's definitely related to the Demons. Magic of some kind, though... it's not what I'm used to.' She's lost in thought again, trying to figure it out. 'Perhaps... it might fit Shadow magic best, but few pure Demons can manage that, much less a Makyan like him...''Shadow magic?' Well, that's different."AGH!" Tien calls out again. He glares at Garlic Jr. Damn it... "F-fine... but no tricks."The pale blue imp floats over to him, an all too smug grin on his face. "This may hurt a bit." He places his hand forward, a... what can only be described as a glow of "darkness" surrounding his hand. Tien's wound makes the same glow, and he howls in pain for a moment. Launch and Chi-chi take stances next to Tien, Chiaotzu giving the angriest look you've ever seen on his face... but then it passes. Tien's healed... though that leaves quite a scar. "You will suffer no further pain from that. Now, if you'll allow me, I'll be on my way...">A. Wait, Garlic, what was that you just did?>B. ...make sure that your minions don't pull any more tricks, or else>C. Head to the ring, your match is soon>D. Something else?
>>42625596>B. ...make sure that your minions don't pull any more tricks, or else>C. Head to the ring, your match is soon>D. Something else?Telepathically 'Tien, go have Trip check you out in case he pulled something there.'
>>42625596>A. Wait, Garlic, what was that you just did?For fucks sake Tien
>>42625596>A. Wait, Garlic, what was that you just did?>C. Head to the ring, your match is soon>D. Something else?Have Tien check in with Trip.
>>42625596>B. ...make sure that your minions don't pull any more tricks, or else I'll have you do the Ginger, Pepper, and Cinnamon Challenge
>>42625807That could come across as vaguely lewd...
>>42625830Get your mind outta the gutter and into the grinder, it's brutal, not lewd.
I wonder what the moon's like tonight?
>>42625596"Wait, Garlic, what did you do just now?"The Makyan turns back to you. "...I removed the... 'curse,' you could say, that afflicted your friend.""The fourth match of the first round will begin shortly! It's returning Champion, the lovely little firecracker of the Turtle School, Maple Mahogany! And this time, she's facing the dark and mysterious Majunior! Who will come out on top?"Launch seems to sigh with relief, though Tien is still not sure about what just happened. That wasn't any standard curse, you know that much, and it seems Tien figured that out as well. You turn to walk towards the ring. "... make sure that your minions don't pull any more tricks, or else.""They should have known better." Garlic replies, glancing at you. "And Ginger should have saved that for you."The malicious tone Garlic gives that in almost sends a chill down your spine, the Makyan heading back to the waiting area and you can hear sounds of him shouting at his minion. As you walk into the ring, you telepathically tell Tien to check in with Trip to make sure there are no side-effects. Piccolo follows you shortly after, a curious look on his face as he sees Tien go towards Trip. The Namekian lets out a little chuckle as clouds start to come in. "You and your friends sure you want to continue? I can do far worse than that little flesh wound.">A. Of course, you think we'd back down because of something like that?>B. ...want to make a wager?>C. Take your stance silently>D. Something else?
>>42626018>>A. Of course, you think we'd back down because of something like that?
>>42626018>A. Of course, you think we'd back down because of something like that?"I've been looking forward to this."
Man, this is the second best dragon ball universe quest. Right behind dbz turtle quest.
>>42626018>>A. Of course, you think we'd back down because of something like that?It's time to ham it up, get the MC's mike
>>42626018>A. Of course, you think we'd back down because of something like that?I'd be very disappointed if you couldn't.
>>42626152No, serious duel time.
>>42626018>A. Of course, you think we'd back down because of something like that?>B. ...want to make a wager?We win, we teach him how to skateboard. Who's with me?
>>426261872random right now. Maybe later.
>>42626116There will never be a sequel, but maybe that's for the best. You shouldn't change a work of art.
>>42626018>A. Of course, you think we'd back down because of something like that?
So with Dende's Dragon Balls, reviving the Earth takes up two wishes, with one left over. Shouldn't Tagoma and Sorbet have been able to wish King Cold back to life, seeing as how the first wish was used to bring back one guy in poor condition? It's not like those dead people on Earth had their bodies preserved very well neither.
>>42626400You think Toriyama remembers things? WE put more thought into his stuff than he does.
>>42626400They were just so preoccupied about Frieza being revived in tiny pieces that they must have forgotten about the last wish.I'd like to think that fate tosses Pilaf & Co. a bone every now and then.
>>42626018https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AjfSflHra84You smirk at Piccolo. " Of course, you think we'd back down because of something like that?" You take your stance. "I've been looking forward to this.""You saw how badly it ended last time." Piccolo taunts, taking his own stance. "You still press on. Good. I don't want my vengeance to be boring.""Well well, seems these competitors are getting fired up, folks!" the Announcer guy shouts.Out of the corner of your eye, you notice Goku's face is almost beaming with excitement. Heh, of course he is. You turn your head and wink at him quickly. Time to settle this."Fighters ready? BEGIN!"Lightning flashes, followed by the booming of thunder, as Piccolo's aura flares up around him. He's not holding back.>A. And neither are you! KAIO-KEN!>B. Don't go all-out just yet, but face him head-on>C. Go for defense, see what he's planning>D. Energy attack!>E. Something else?
>>42626513>>B. Don't go all-out just yet, but face him head-on
>>42626513>B. Don't go all-out just yet, but face him head-onTime to test the waters.
>>42626513>>E. Something else?Raio-ken into Machinegun Punch, have the last punch of the combo be a Lightning Phantom Shotgun for that stun.
>>42626513>B. Don't go all-out just yet, but face him head-on
>>42626568We never learned Machinegun Punch.
>>42626609Yeah we did, we never got Volleyball Fist though.
>>42626568We should totally try to paralyze both his arms, and say, "This isn't going down like with your father, I'm not leaving you even one arm to move, absolutely no rip-and-tearing!"
>>42626642Well our lightning stuns are full body for a short amount of time. I just want our Kaio-ken flares to be strategic.
>>42626513>D. Energy attack!Throw out some weak Ki blasts to narrow down his avenues of attack, and to gauge his strength/speed. Be ready to evade with a TK movement to catch him off-guard and counterattack.
>>42626673>Making me archive hunt cause you can't pay attention.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/42330071/#p42334771
>>42626661So I've been thinking, Kaiokens imbue the body with energy, correct? This creates wear and tear on the body. The Kamehameha uses energy from the body. Is it possible, with the philosophy of Equivalent Exchange, to funnel all that Kaioken energy into our Kamehameha instead of our body, a sort of, "Kaiohameha"?
>>42626721Huh, we traded Tien the ability to break curses for that. What gives? He hasn't been training it well, it seems.
>>42626742That's practically the same effect as using Kaio-ken to amplify a Kamehameha wave. Also, Kaio-ken doesn't imbue the body with energy, it's some sort of weird technique that momentarily boosts offensive parameters at the cost of the user's stamina and physical condition.

Fuck yeah Tuffle Quest!So if there is shadow magic is light magic a thing?I wonder if anyone can do both? Beelz?
We should go learn the devilmite beam and then use it to make piccolo's, napppa's, and even frieza's negative thoughts explode their hearts. its the perfect plan.
>>42626513https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=emJaN6Tb7vMPiccolo rushes you, confident in his abilities. But so are you. No, you're more than confident. You've trained for this. Right as his first punch is about to hit you, you telekinetically push yourself to the side, forcing his fist to miss... and yours to land right in his gut. Piccolo barely even registers that strike for a moment, mostly shocked that you were able to do that. Right as he starts to feel it, you unleash Tien's Machinegun Punch at him, and then knock him back with a kick to the head."YEAH! KEEP IT UP, MAPLE!" Goku shouts at you. Chi-chi's with him, cheering as well, as you can hear many people among the crowds cheering your name."KICK HIS ASS, SIS!" your brother shouts at you from the crowds.Piccolo takes a moment to try and reorient himself. "Lucky shot.""Or maybe I'm just far more skilled than you think I am." you taunt. Piccolo tries to move at you again, though you meet his charge, dodging under a kick and leaping at him with an uppercut, following throw by smacking him in the jaw with your elbow and landing another powerful, and far more painful kick to the head again. "D-DAMN IT... YOU BRAT!">A. Follow through, and keep it up!>B. Back up, get some distance, and see how he takes this>C. Enough holding back... make him see how strong you really are! KAIO-KEN!>D.

>>42627230You crack your knuckles, popping up some Spirit Bits, with some Lightning added for good measure. "I was exhausted BEFORE I fought you at Wheelo's. This is your first time actually fighting me."Piccolo glares at you hatefully as he grips his cape. "This is your first time fighting ME as well. Don't think that you've won just yet!" Piccolo smirks as he tosses the white cloth and shoulder pads aside... with them leaving a powerful "THUD" sound outside the ring. Shit, that was weighted. "RRAAAAGH!"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=heqvwbMuzuMYou both rush at each other again, Piccolo managing to actually dodge your Spirit Bits' bursts. You try to land a punch on his torso, but Piccolo blocks it expertly, grabbing you by the arm and flinging you at the ground. You manage to stop yourself and stand up quickly, but that leaves Piccolo just the chance he needs to go on the offensive. You're able to dodge and block most of his attacks, though some of them hit true. Finally seeing your opening, you jump up to move away from one of his strikes and land on his arm, kicking off it to get some distance.>A. Not bad, kid, not bad>B. How much did that weigh?>C.

>>42627821You rub your chin, smiling. "Not bad, kid, not bad."Piccolo looks at you with mixed anger and confusion. "...did you just call me 'kid?'"Guess he doesn't really realize it himself. "This is fun... but I think I know where we stand, now..." sparks start flying around you, "so I should stop holding back so much. Those weighted clothes weigh much?"Piccolo takes that as a bluff. "Hmnh. 150 Kilos. And try all you want, you don't hold a candle to-"A bluish aura surrounds you as the sparks turn into furious bolts. "RAIO-KEN!""R-AGK!" Piccolo can't even finish as you've bolted around him, landing your fist in his jaw again.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sDGUJgk9pTEPiccolo tries to attack you while you're still in close range, but with a Lightning-enhanced Izumi combo, you counter his attacks and pummel him with stunning palm-strikes. Piccolo's more than a little... shocked... by that. As you continue to attack Piccolo, you notice Goku's got the biggest, dumbest grin on his face. He's enjoying the hell out of this. Piccolo can't even THINK about trying to counter you; your moves are too quick, and your attacks start adding up."I'VE HAD IT WITH YOU, BRAT!" the Namekian roars into the air, trying to fling you off him. You move out of the way just in time, going back to normal. Piccolo slams his foot on the ground... and starts growing. His strength nearly doubles, sitting at around... 30,000, maybe. The crowds are shocked, and some start making murmurs of this all seeming familiar.>A. Your pops tried this last time, and it ended out badly for him; you just made yourself a bigger target>B.

Piccolo roars as his foot slams into the arena, trying to crush you underneath. You move out of the way almost effortlessly. He's not slower in this form... but his movements are a whole lot more obvious. And you're leagues faster."KAIO-KEN!" you roar, getting your Spirit Bits ready and going for Piccolo's joints. The giant Namekian moves to the air, but the bombardment is way, way harder to dodge when he's this big. "Everyone, don't fear!" you yell to the crowds. "I've helped defeat Piccolo before, and I'm more than capable of handling his son!"Gasps fill the air as people take in what you just said. Piccolo is surprised, but tries his best to swat away the Spirit Bits. It gives you the right opportunity to... start charging. You place your hands out, and for as long as he'll let you, you charge, with everything you have, landing a couple kicks on Piccolo as you do. Your Kaio-ken fades, and the Spirit Bits empty into him. Piccolo... is furious. "NO. NO! I REFUSE TO LET THIS END HERE!" He places his hands forward, building up as much energy as he has left.At a full charge, you flare up the Kaio-ken once more, and have your Spirit Bits form a gate... time to amplify this! "DENJIN!" You cup your hands together, sparks flying, everyone on the edge of their seats. Gods, you hope that this can hold... "Kaaaa... meeee... haaaaa... MEEEE..."The same dark aura that you spotted in Garlic Jr.'s hands seems to build up in Piccolo's. "BAKURIKIMAHA!""HAAAAAAA!" you fling your hands forward, blasting your Denjin Kamehameha into your amplifier. It bursts out...(cont.)
>>42629865...and the two attacks meet in mid-air, Piccolo over a hundred meters into the sky, you barely 10 off the ground. As strong as your attack is, Piccolo seems to not be holding ANYTHING back.

>>42630263Just lets Piccolo still be a credible threat after getting 20's all over the place. I mean, this has the same punch as an oozaru blast, and he managed to fight it to something more manageable.
I hope we can heal him up and even offer Equal Exchange. Piccolo can't resist Kaioken and Raioken. I also wanna check out all his new techniques.
>>42630461We'll definitely heal him up. We are both going to need a senzu after this, but EE can sometime after the tournament.
>>42629919You aren't going to let him get the upper hand... but at the same time, shouldn't give it your all. Just a bit more... "Kaio-ken... TIMES THREE!""Times WHAT?!"With the added burst of Ki, but only just, your attack overwhelms Piccolo's. The bright blue beam engulfs the giant Namekian, and ends up sending him flying... and flying... and flying... right into a mountain, with a loud, noticeable "boom."The audience seem absolutely stunned, and the Announcer guy fails to say anything for almost half a minute. You float down and raise your fist into the air. The crowds then go absolutely wild. Finally, the Announcer calls the match. "That was spectacular! Unbelievable! Ladies and gentlemen, she's the Champion for a reason! Maple Mahogany has defeated Majunior, who she just claimed was the son of the nefarious King Piccolo who tried to take over the world three years prior! I would have a hard time believing it if I didn't see it for myself, but here we are!"You breathe out a sigh of relief. Goku has the most excited look on his face right now. Chi-chi and Nam head over to tend to your... well, admittedly minor injuries. Goku gives you a pat on the back. "That was awesome! Great job, Maple!">A. Looking forward to our rematch, Goku, you better make it past the next round!>B. ...guys, I'm gonna go check on Piccolo>C. Check on someone here (who?)>D. Rest a bit>E. Something else?

>>42630578>B. ...guys, I'm gonna go check on Piccolo
>>42630578Goku's excitement is almost infectious. "Looking forward to our rematch, monkey boy, you better make it past the next round!""Only if you make it past me, first." Tien's voice tells you, to your surprise."Hey, you seem better. Trip give the A-OK?" Chi-chi asks. The triclops nods, Blue Launch around his arm with a relieved smile on her face.You look out towards the distance, checking on the mountain where Piccolo landed. "...guys, spot me a Senzu."Chi-chi looks at you curiously. "You're plenty healed, Maple, you don't really-""Trust me." you, keeping your focus in that direction. Goku hands you one of his, and before anyone can say anything else, you start flying up. "Chuu Lee, something to learn from this: often times it's better to help your foes than hurt them more.""Help... them?" she asks curiously. You leave and let her think on that, heading over to Piccolo. You see the Namekian passed out, pretty badly damaged. Wow did you do a number on him... welp! Senzu time! You toss the bean in Piccolo's mouth, his eyes opening wide."Gah! Ah... y-you..." Piccolo's size returns to normal, himself checking over his body. He restores his outfit back to a pristine condition... of course, of course he has the Clothes Beam. Hah. Piccolo then starts glaring at you. "Why?""Because the little Tuffle girl has quite a mercy streak going for her. Much different from how she acted towards... well, you before, Piccolo.">A. Ignoring you, talking with Piccolo>B. What do YOU want? Another picture? Autographed, this time?>C. What's the deal with Magil, what's your goal with him?>D. Garlic Jr... are you involved with him?>E. Something else?
>>42631342>B. What do YOU want? Another picture? Autographed, this time?"Its obviously not the same person you dumb bitch. I of all people should know that."
>>42631342>A. Ignoring you, talking with Piccoloif she persists >B. What do YOU want? Another picture? Autographed, this time?
>>42631342Because we're a lot more alike then you realize Piccolo. I believe we can make amends one day and be allied instead of enemies.
>>42631342>>A. Ignoring you, talking with PiccoloIgnore this bitch
>>42631342>A. Ignoring you, talking with Piccolo
>>42631342>B. What do YOU want? Another picture? Autographed, this time?>C. What's the deal with Magil, what's your goal with him?
>>42631342>E. Something else?"Because you're not your dad."Making a huge speech right now would feel weird. Let's just keep it simple, since this pretty much sums it up.
>>42631342>E. Make a speech about forgiveness."The sins of the parents should not be passed on to their children. If we all held our parents' old grudges, well, I wouldn't have one of my best friends."
>>42631342Nope. Ignoring her. "We're... a lot more alike than you think, Piccolo. As much as you think you are, you're not... completely King Piccolo."That almost enrages him, but JUST barely less than he seems to be enraged by Towa's presence. "I AM King Piccolo, reborn.""Technically true, but... you don't HAVE to be King Piccolo. Think about it, do you really want to just... go out on some dumb mission of vengeance because dear old dad told you so?""WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT ME?! YOU KNOW NOTHING." Piccolo's aura flares around him.You... visibly drop your guard. "Read my mind. I know more than... most anyone else on this planet. Me and brobro..."Piccolo WANTS to attack you... but that got him curious. "...you could be trying to trick me.""I'm trying to help you see the truth. You're... not your dad." You clench your fists, prepared to let him attack you if that eases his distrust.(cont.)
>>42631998https://youtu.be/6vg7iM9eEOYTowa claps. "Bravo, bravo. You'll get him on your side, and then have someone else in league with your little merry band of fools." She tries to stroke her finger across your cheek, but you bat her hand away and turn around."Shut the hell up, Towa!" you and Piccolo bark at her. Well, she's not going away any time soon. "What do YOU want, anyway? Another picture? Autographed, this time? You can frame it and put it on your nightstand."The blue demon woman's eye twitches, but she otherwise keeps her demeanor. "I'm here because I have business with King P-""Piccolo Jr." you correct her adamantly. "And what about Magil, is he on orders from you for some convoluted plan? Are you... after the Dragon Balls, or something?"She smiles at you. "Clever little girl. I guess you did notice after all." Towa shrugs. "I merely want to help those in need. Better than hogging them all to yourself.""Leave." Piccolo tells her.Towa's expression becomes less amused. "Not before I take back what belongs to us." With a little wave of her staff, you notice a black aura appear around Piccolo... and then vanish. And his Power Level plummets, down to about... 9000. Piccolo stares in disbelief.>A. What did you just do?>B. Towa, get the hell out of here or I swear I WILL slap you again!>C. Piccolo, you all right?>D. Something else?
>>42632028>A. What did you just do?>C. Piccolo, you all right?Then>B. Towa, get the hell out of here or I swear I WILL slap you again!
>>42632028>A. What did you just do?>C. Piccolo, you all right?
>>42632028>D.Don't worry Piccolo. I have a training regiment just for you. We'll get you even stronger than before and then we can have that rematch.
>>42632028>D. Something else?Scream "IT'S AT OR UNDER 9000!!", remember how old and shitty that joke is, and then ask Piccolo if he's alright.
>>42632107Hold off on that. We shouldn't be presumptuous. Wait until we see what his demeanor towards us is after he reads our mind.
>>42632161StillI kinda wanna see Piccolo meet the Darkness.That'd be neat.
>>42632028>A. What did you just do?>C. Piccolo, you all right?>>42632107>>42632161Yeah, offering too much help to Piccolo would be just as bad as leaving him to die, or even worse. While he's not as bad as Vegeta, he still is very prideful right now.Even if we have both a kick-ass training regimen and a regiment of friends/students to challenge him, we should let him come to us.
>>42632380Yeah, definitely. Give it time, and give him time to keep being an antagonist. I have a feeling the actual alliance with him will come later.

>>42632521....Knew I was gonna get a twenty but not get counted. This is worse then rolling all ones.
>>42632521too late anon. Nice try though
>>42632532Seems like Towa was practicing for this moment in front of a mirror.
>>42632532Obvious that she removed the demon energy that was still on his body, and was prior attached to King Piccolo.No idea how, but that is what happened.
>>42632028"Piccolo!" You move over, trying to see if you can reverse that. "Y-you all right?""...I guess it really was just borrowed power after all." the Namekian says in a tone of defeat.You turn back to Towa, glaring at her. "What did you do?!""That strength he seemed to try to rely on was pointless. I took it back." she tells you with a haughty laugh. "Oh come now, do you really think a lost, confused little boy like that deserves the power of a Demon? Especially after that pitiful display he put up against you, little Tuffle girl?"You clench your fists tight, stamping towards her. "Towa, get the hell out of here or I swear I WILL slap you again."The woman... does not take that well. Her eyes seem to flash for a moment and... y-you can't move. You try to struggle, even try to push yourself back with Telekinesis, but... you can't. Towa slowly steps towards you, a smile full of malice on her face. It... it's starting to get hard to breathe, like the air's thinned, and there's this ghostly pressure on your lungs. "I was careless, then. Let this serve as a reminder." She strokes a finger along your jaw, pushing your head up to face her, eyes... feeling like they're staring into your soul. "The only reason you and all your little friends are still alive is because your little group is useful to me. That can change at a whim. Get stronger." She leans in... and whispers into your ear, "Or else."Her grip on your body weakens and... you fall to your knees. Gods... the hell even was that? You look up, and Towa's vanished again. Piccolo sighs. "I'm leaving. Don't follow me.">A. ...Good luck>B. One last question, before you go>C. Head back to the Tournament>D. Something else?
>>42632803>>A. ...Good luck
>>42632803>>D. Something else?You ever need anyone to talk to or train with, look me up.
>>42632803Do you wanna help us kick Magil and Garlic around? Make you feel better.
>>42632803>D. Something else?"I'll look forward to the rematch sometime, though considering Goku was almost bouncing off the walls wanting to fight you maybe you should challenge him first.">A. ...Good luck>C. Head back to the Tournament
>>42632803A. ...Good luckIF you ever want to talk or train
>>42632803>A. ...Good luck"I'm...looking forward to our rematch, once we've...both taken care of some housecleaning."We're probably not feeling too hot, hence the strained talking. We both have plenty to take care of before we fight again; he's got some training to do, and we've got some villain-related mysteries to solve.>C. Head back to the Tournament
>>42632803>B. See you next Tournament?>A. ...Good luck
>>42632803>B. One last question, before you go"Still want to read my mind?"
>>42632803"Hey, Piccolo... if you ever want a rematch, I'll be more than happy to have one... after this is all over. H-heh, though, Goku probably wants a shot at you first." You turn to face him. "Good luck. I'll be training hard. Maybe see you next Tournament, if you're up for that?""...don't disappoint me." he growls out."You can still read my mind, if you want." you add before he flies off.Piccolo looks at you with a bit of a smirk. "Just finished." And with that... he's gone.Whew... gods, that took a lot out of you. Better head back. You bolt out from the mountain, arriving just in time to hear..."Over in 10 seconds flat! That's got to be one for the record books, folks, but would you expect anything less from the fighter being trained by our current Champion?"Chuu Lee seems to leap out of the arena, overjoyed. "I did it! I did it!"You touch down next to your student, smiling wide. "Enjoying yourself?"She nods enthusiastically at you, almost bouncing with excitement. Goku approaches soon after with Tien, and your brother telepathically asks what went down."Next match will be the legendary, notorious assassin Tao Pai Pai, a returning competitor to the Tournament, and the young Samurai, Yajirobe!">A. Take your time to explain it all, gather your friends>B. Give broad strokes, then watch the match>C. Talk with someone (who?)>D. Something else?
>>42633385>A. Take your time to explain it all, gather your friends
>>42633385>A. Take your time to explain it all, gather your friendsAttagirl Chuu Lee.
>>42633385>A. Take your time to explain it all, gather your friendsAs much as I want to see the fight, people need the rundown. Bad shit, keep eyes on Magil, Garlic and his cronies, maybe have someone go to Capsule Corp. to protect the Dragon Ball, Yamcha's going to be busy.
>>42633641Goku and Tien still have theirs.
>>42633385>B. Give broad strokes, then watch the matchWhat just happened was kind of a personal thing for Piccolo, it doesn't seem right to tell everyone the minutia if the details aren't world-threatening.
>>42633713Perhaps, but I think it'd be better if someone goes down there to protect it just in case. Especially if Yamcha's about to become a dad.
>>42633385"Okay, everyone needs to hear this, so listen up, because some heavy stuff's gone down..." You start explaining everything that just happened, you helping Piccolo, Towa's arrival, her plans, how she somehow stole Piccolo's energy, and how she... reminded you of the gulf between your strength. You take a moment to explain more about Towa to Chuu Lee, and how she's been a constant thorn in your side.Krillin seems to contemplate something, then talks it over with his students. Finally, he asks it aloud, "Guys, should we have someone head over to Capsule Corp. to protect the Dragon Ball there, or have it brought over here? If you want someone to head over, we're more than willing to go.""Tao is out of bounds, Yajirobe is the winner!">A. Go for it, Krillmaster>B. Let's bring it here, it'd be safer for Yamcha, Bulma and everyone else>C. Someone else should head to Capsule Corp., you guys would be better here>D. Something else?
>>42634258>A. Go for it, KrillmasterTrust in the Krillmaster.
>>42634258>B. Let's bring it here, it'd be safer for Yamcha, Bulma and everyone elseNot keen on the idea putting them so close together but, I want to make sure Bulma and Yamcha aren't a target. Besides Acer and ChiChi are fresh as well and they can help out guarding them.
>>42634258>A. Go for it, Krillmaster>B. Let's bring it here, it'd be safer for Yamcha, Bulma and everyone else
>>42634258Krillmaster and just one of his students would be plenty.>Check on Yajirobe and Tao.Think Tao would be interested in training in a gravity chamber? We could learn some of his skill set. Do the same with Yajirobe. Get Brobro and Map!e 100%!
>>42634258>B. Let's bring it here, it'd be safer for Yamcha, Bulma and everyone else
>>42634258> >B. Let's bring it here, it'd be safer for Yamcha, Bulma and everyone elseAll the group losers get guard duty? Also, maybe another chamber could be useful for Mifan.
>>42634258>B. Let's bring it here, it'd be safer for Yamcha, Bulma and everyone elseThis makes sense to me, keeps them from becoming targets.
>>42634258You think on that for a second. "Let's... bring it here. While they would all be in one place, we'd be able to all respond easier and it'd keep Bulma, Yamcha, and everyone else from becoming targets. That make sense to everyone?"All give an affirming nod. Acer steps over towards you. "Sis, Launch and I are going to stick with Chiaotzu, that work out for you?""Sure, brobro. Thanks." Okay, that should take care of everything...Acer places his hand on your shoulder. "Sis. Be careful." His hand grips the shoulder pad. "If Towa is this active right now... well, who knows what she'll end up doing..."You place your hand on his. "I will. Promise.""The next round will start shortly! Garlic Jr. vs. Shen Hiro!"You notice the little Makyan walk out of the waiting area, smirking to himself as Shen walks with him, moving... sort of odd. Like he's not completely used to walking like that. Almost like he's older than he really seems.>A. Watch the match, gotta study this one>B. I'm kind of exhausted from all this, who wants to get some grub?>C. Talk with someone (who?)>D. Something else?
>>42634929>A. Watch the match, gotta study this one
>>42634929>Watch the fight

>>42634929Who won between Giran and Pamput?
>>42635085Thought so.SoooNext roundGoku vs MagilMaple vs TienChuu Lee vs GiranYaji vs ____
>>42634929You go outside with Goku and Chuu Lee, Tien heading upstairs with Giran following him. Magil seems to have taken Piccolo's spot perching on the roof of the Tournament. You're a bit worried about the person fighting Garlic, he's not exactly the strongest competitor here... Power Level's maybe around 200, 250 at most. Garlic Jr. on the other hand... over 8000, at least, and possibly more."With these new competitors sizing each other up, who knows who'll come out on top! Let the eighth and final match of the first round, BEGIN!"Immediately, Garlic Jr. seems to decide to show off, powering up and letting his aura flare up around him. He steps forward. "You really thought you could pull some sort of trick here? Oh how rich." Slowly, the Makyan makes his way towards his opponent. "As fun as it would be to end you here, I need you alive long enough for my dream to come true.""Well young man, I'm not quite sure what dreams you've been having, but if it's the dream of a nice new home, I can set you up with a good deal!" Shen replies, stepping forward with a smile on his face."Going to play this game, are you?" Garlic shakes his head. "So sad." He immediately fires twin beams from his eyes... but Shen seems to slip backwards and fall out of the way, the tiles cracking underneath him. And... it keeps happening."Well, talk about a lucky slip, folks, Shen may not be the most graceful competitor here, but he certainly has luck on his side!"Goku crosses his arms, eyeing the match suspiciously. "There's... something familiar about this Shen fellow."Chuu Lee scratches her head. "His Ki is all off, like it doesn't... really belong to him.">A. Stay quiet, keep observing>B. Try to read Shen's mind>C. Try to read Garlic Jr.'s mind>D. Something else?
>>42635623C, then B

Rolled 1, 13, 16, 19, 9 = 58 (5d20)Hmm...
Kami Jr. When?What would kami jr be like, folks?
>>42635973Might have been Kami
>>42635623You turn to your friends and ask aloud, "Anyone see his Prelim matches?""I did." Yajirobe tells you, chomping down on a chicken leg. "He pulled most of the same tricks there that he is here. Gets someone to drop their guard, then manages to 'sneak' a win in. Makes his opponents look like fools in the process.""There's something else about him too." Goku adds. "Like I know him from somewhere..."You look around as Shen continues with his tricks, noticing a very confused, and very worried Trip. Well, aren't going to get any answers by just waiting. You peek into Garlic Jr.'s mind, and...'STAY STILL YOU GREEN BASTARD!'...huh. Green? You check Shen's mind next...'Almost ready... just have to get him when he least expects it...'...you swear you can hear an echo in his voice, something, some... one else is in there. You cross your arms and legs, following this all. It keeps up like this for almost a whole minute, when suddenly..."Got you!" Shen shouts as he dashes towards Garlic Jr. The Makyan tries to blast at him again, but... that strikes an Afterimage. Shen reappears behind Garlic and... places his hands forward, a small bottle dropping onto the floor.(cont.)
>>42636537"You won't escape. Just like your father, your ambition will be your downfall." Energy seems to build up in his hands, to Yajirobe's surprise.Suddenly, you hear Master Roshi, of all people, shout at him from the crowds, "You young fool, that's suicidal! No kid can just up and use the Mafuba like that!"Shen doesn't relent. "This is how it will end for you, Garlic! MAFUBA!"A swirling vortex of energy seems to escape from Shen's hands, engulfing Garlic and bringing him into the air. For a moment, it almost seems like Shen will succeed on whatever goal he had set out for himself... but that fails when Garlic fires a beam at the bottle right before he hits, with the Makyan crashing to the ground and growling angrily at his opponent. "You... you DARE!"Shen seems extremely exhausted now...>A. Telepathically tell Shen to give up>B. Keep watching>C. Ask Master Roshi how that was possible>D. Something else?

>>42636843Are the Dragon Balls about to stop working?
>>42636894No Garlic needs them. He won't kill Kami.
>>42636914He could slip up and kill him by accident.
>>42636565You try to find your master among the crowds, contacting him telepathically. 'How did he do that, Master?''M-Maple? Uh... you see... kiddo I haven't the foggiest clue, and even less of a clue as to how he's still alive. That technique would kill a man like him.'Shen is panting heavily, and while that took a lot out of him... he's still standing. Garlic is absolutely livid. "I've had enough of your games, Kami."...of course. Of course oh gods damn it Kami! Goku seems to have the same "I should have figured that out on my own." Look on his face.Garlic Jr. places his hands together, palms splayed open. "You thought you were so clever with that little maneuver. Well... you're not the only one who can do that! SEALED LIGHT BEAM!"A blast bursts forth from Garlic Jr.'s hands, and, with less than a second to spare... Kami seems to appear in front of Shen, somehow escaping from his body. He takes the blast head-on... and it starts to circle around him, and... shrink him? Wait, is this what would have happened to you if you didn't dodge that? Gods, that was lucky... Garlic somehow is able to pull the shrunken Kami towards him. Then... the most malicious smile you've seen on his face appears.(cont.)
>>42637276"Ladies and gentlemen, no need to be alarmed, just as the Champion Maple Mahogany has stopped the son of King Piccolo, I have in my hands, the fiend himself!" You and your friends are stunned by what he just said, and the crowd gasps. "He was hiding in a person's body the whole time, living among you all... but he revealed his trump card too soon! My apologies for the earlier disturbance by my men, but it was all in an effort to stop him. Rest assured, Piccolo will never bother you all again!"You... hear Magil laugh softly above you, as Garlic pushes an unconscious Shen out of bounds, then heads out of the ring himself. The Announcer guy looks at him in disbelief, but has to make the call. "Sh-Shen, is, um, out of bounds, and King Piccolo is captured! Garlic Jr. is the winner! This concludes the first round of the 23rd World Martial Arts Tournament! We will begin the second round after a quick lunch break!">A. Garlic, hand him over, NOW!>B. ...can't do anything right now, this would be too suspicious to the crowds, best to play along>C. Something else?

>>42637301Oh raging you cuntwaffle, Garlic.>B. ...can't do anything right now, this would be too suspicious to the crowds, best to play along"Good. Job."
>>42637301>A.We have the support of almost every martial artist there, even if we have to bluff and say we're taking him in.
>>42637301>Let me guess. Your going to make us trade the dragon balls for Kami. >Kill him and you lose the dragonballs and Piccolo's wrath if you don't kill him.
>>42637432I never understood hostage situations."I'll kill this person!">But then you'll lose your only hostage. And the important piece of your plan."I'LL KILL HIM I SWEAR!">But.. you'll lose if you do.It never holds water.
>>42637301>B. ...can't do anything right now, this would be too suspicious to the crowds, best to play alongHe'll drop his guard, then we save Kami later.
>>42637301>B. ...can't do anything right now, this would be too suspicious to the crowds, best to play along>C. Something else?Grit our teeth, seethe, try to focus on preparing for our next match. Gotta take this one thing at a time.
>>42637475In this situation, he could aim for torturing Kami, though.
>>42637714Like if he does that...I don't like Maple ending people but Garlic has irredeemably bad since he met him 6 years ago. He's starting to look like Lucifer.
>>42637714Kami would willingly take himself, the dragon balls and Piccolo out if Garlic played hardball.
>>42637761List of people we need to throw into the sun:Lucifer, if he ever comes backTowaGarlic Jr.Maybe Ghost Dad?
>>42637811I think Ghost Dad deserves a special treatment. Us, Goku, and brobro 86'ing him together.
>>42637811Ghost Dad is taken to Hell and we put him through the soul c!eansing machine so he can't come back again.
>>42637301'You won't get away with this, Garlic.' you tell him telepathically. He... simply smiles at you. He doesn't have to respond. Smug little... Goku's angry, but he doesn't really know how to react to this. You place your hand on his shoulder and shake your head, then walk towards Garlic. "Thank you for your diligent work. Give him a hand, folks, for helping stop King Piccolo once and for all!"The crowds go nuts over your approval of his deed, chanting his name. Garlic turns to them and gives a graceful bow. "He wasn't the real threat here, of course. Your excellent handling of Majunior deserves more credit."'What do you really want, Garlic? The Dragon Balls? Intend to trade him over in exchange for them?'Garlic Jr. lets out a little chuckle, walking away, letting you read his next few thoughts. 'Of course not. Immortality is nice... but you can't do anything to me without risking losing the Dragon Balls. And I don't know about you, but that Magil fellow might not play by the rules when it comes to that monkey boy you fancy, Maple Mahogany.' He seems to conjure up a glass around Kami, sealing the aged Namekian inside. 'To say nothing of others that might end up hurt...'Your face goes a little pale as a chill runs down your spine. You clench your fists and let him go. For now. He'll pay for this. A hand falls on your shoulder, causing you to jump a little. Goku.

>>42637954Garlic you double cuntwaffle!>B. Y-yeah, we will...>C. ...we should get some food, maybe plan this out>D. Something else?Goku, Yajirobe, and Chuu Lee all need warnings.
>>42636565What is this, Dragonball Evolution? The Mafuba isn't that lame.
>>42638134Eh he rolled a 1.
>>42638134Didn't King Piccolo do the same thing in canon?
>>42638168Piccolo Jr. did something similar, he turned it on Kami while he was caught in it.
Next round is Goku vs Majil, Tien vs us, Chuu Lee vs Giran, Yajirobe vs Garlic. This should be interesting. Thinking we might see Garlic if we make it to the finals.
>>42638201...man, the Mafuba DOES have a pretty shitty record. Mutaito must be shaking his head in embarrassment.>>42638208Part of me wants to see Chuu Lee or Yajirobe take him out, but he's stronger than either of them...
>>42638208Garlic would make for a really awesome end-of-arc battle, actually. Considering how he's been a steadily-growing threat all this time, I hope we do end up fighting him there.
>>42638134Just wait until the solar eclipse and Magil fights mini-oozaru.Only we gave him control and now is five times stronger and can do all his attacks.Then Magil gains Piccolo's lost power...
>>42638280>Then Magil gains Piccolo's lost power...Then after that...
>>42632803>Wow what a lame lady, she slaps little girls and steals things from kids
>>42638251He's not really, I hope Chuu Lee manages to best him.
>>42638429I hope so too, but she has the odds stacked against her, just in sheer PL alone.
>>42638251I don't. He seems to be a layer of annoying sprinkles on top of the Towa sundae.I really hope that Maple ends up squaring off against Goku.
>>42638516Well we have to beat Tien first.
>>42638516Due to the brackets thats going to be the semi-finals.
>>42638531Well since I doubt we'll be rolling several 1's, It''s a fair bet that we have that one in the bag.
>>42638583You totally jinxed it.
>>42638583>Well since I doubt we'll be rolling several 1'sGreat, we're jobbing to Tien, and it's all your fault!
>>42638583>First round is all 1S.>All of them.>Maple blows up>...winnerTien!>Tien rolls with it. Calls it Tri-Stare!
>>42638429>>42638516I like Garlic. He's goofy and he's been kind of a joke up until now, but I like that he might finally get some time to shine.
>>42638664>Towa slapped me harder than I thought!
>>42637954You look at Goku with a worried expression... but, no. He doesn't need you hounding him over this same issue. He knows. "Y-yeah... we will..."Goku looks at you curiously, crossing his arms. "You okay, Maple?""Worried. I don't like what he's planning. Y- ...we all need to be careful." You sigh out. Your group all heads to get some food together. You try to arrange things so Goku, Chuu Lee, and Yajirobe are all next to you, Chi-chi as well, while, Tien, Chiaotzu, Launch, and Tao are grouped together with Acer. "Chuu Lee, Yajirobe, you both need to be careful around Garlic Jr. and... in general. Someone's not going to play fair here.""Understood, Master." she responds in... a far more eager tone than you'd like.Yajirobe snorts. "Maple who was the one trying to actively avoid danger? Things get too heated for me, I'm calling it quits.""Yeah, that sounds like you." Chi-chi adds in an annoyed tone. The young samurai glances at her and scoots away slightly, actively trying to not make eye contact for the rest of the time there."And Goku, I... you better be either facing me or Tien in the semi-finals." you tell the monkey boy. "Magil isn't a pushover, so don't hold back. And if... either of you end up fighting Garlic, need you to be prepared for that as well.""Got it!" he responds in a very relaxed tone.You try to contact Popo and explain the situation to him, and to your relief he believes there's a way to reverse what Garlic Jr. did to Kami. With your meal done and over with, Goku and Magil are called to the arena. The monkey boy does some stretches, getting himself pumped up. As dire as the situation's become... he's still same ol' Goku.>A. Just give Goku a silent nod, he's gotten enough warnings as-is>B. Try to see if he'd open for a kiss, for good luck>C. Try to scout the area out, just in case>D. Something else?

>>42638922What about one for luck and two for flinching?
>>42638843>A. Just give Goku a silent nod, he's gotten enough warnings as-is>>42638922Exactly. We gotta be tenacious and confident during the tournament.
>>42638843>A. Just give Goku a silent nod, he's gotten enough warnings as-isFist bump. "Kick his ass."

>>4263917314 ain't terrible.

>>42639243Nah, she gets better when she's salty.
>>42639243And breathing.Get that oxygen in the blood.
>>42639289Only activate it when in dire straits.
>>42638843You smile and nod at Goku, placing your fist in the air next to him. He places his in the air as well, and bumps his with your own before heading out. With that same smile on your face, you silently say, "Kick his ass, monkey boy.""Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for your patience! The second round of the 23rd World Martial Arts Tournament will begin shortly! First match: returning competitor and two-time runner up Son Goku against newcomer Magil!""You will not go beyond this match, Son Goku. I will make sure of that.""I dunno, I really want to, got a lot of things riding on this." he responds, full of confidence."Fighters ready? BEGIN!"Goku takes his stance, Magil not moving, merely observing your friend for the moment. Your eyes are glued to the scene about to unfold. And then... Goku decides he's not pulling any punches. "KAIO-KEN!"Magil tries to counter him, dashing forwards in an attempt to grab, but Goku gets out of the way just in time, leaping over his opponent and managing to kick him in the back of the head. Goku follows that up with a Ki Jan Ken combo, getting a few decent hits in. Magil doesn't seem all that phased by the attack, more taken by surprise than anything else. The cloaked figure places his hand forward, making a motion with them... that brings up that same dark aura you saw Garlic Jr. with. Suddenly, an explosion of that same, strange color seems to erupt from where Goku is standing. You clench your fists for a moment... but then pick up on Goku's movements. He left an afterimage there, and leaves one more in front of Magil, taunting the other fighter, feinting, and then delivering a powerful kick to the back of Magil's head.Chuu Lee seems curious about how Goku's fighting. "Master... neither of them seem to be using their full strength. I can't sense how strong Magil is, but... I can tell.">A. Goku's testing the waters, Magil's underestimating him>B. Come on, Goku!

>>42639410"Goku's testing the waters, Magil's underestimating him." you say with a smirk. "Making a big mistake there, but if Goku doesn't try to finish this soon, Magil will gain the upper hand..."https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5kV0DsqCoz4Right as Goku's Kaio-ken fades, Magil's quick to rush him again, landing a series of powerful blows on Goku's torso, finishing his attack with a knee to Goku's gut, grabbing him by the tail and throwing him to the ground. Magil takes to the air, firing a barrage of Ki blasts at your friend. Goku barely has enough time to dodge them all, and definitely not enough time to dodge that same dark energy blast. When it clears, Goku's taken a lot more damage from that than he anticipated....a thought occurs. "Chuu Lee... can you sense if there's something more Goku's got in him, something... stronger?"She gives you an odd look at the request, but does so. Goku picks himself back up, powering up to a Kaio-ken x3, and dashing at Magil. The two trade blows evenly again, though Towa's creation seems to have far more stamina than your friend does, eventually sending Goku crashing to the ground. He's taken... a lot of damage. But he has the most amazed look on his face. He's still having a lot of fun with this. Just then... Chuu Lee senses something. "There... there was this flash of... gold and yellow...">A. Flash of gold and yellow?>B. Ask her to keep sensing>C. Something else?

>>42640096>>42640124I'm glad i'm not some shitty fucker!
>>42640169Have you considered that Eail's a douche for going out of his way to put his trip on to get a chastisement train going on one unlucky anon?
>>42640107Its simple, we just gave her...Snake eyes.
>>42640203Have you considered that literally no one was actually chastising you, and that you're being shitty over nothing?
>>42640124Eh, wasn't even around when the voting was happening, making casserole at 11pm is fun dont ya know.

Fuck off you shitposting cocksucker.
>>42639899"A.. flash of gold and yellow?" Well that sounds familiar. You try to telepathically help her, or at least see what she's seeing, when suddenly... that image flashes before your eyes again. You clutch your head. No. No. It's not happening.Chuu Lee stops. "...Master, what was that?""...k-keep sensing, just... try to see if you find something..." No... damn it...Goku pulls off another Kaio-ken x3, but this one seems like it'll be his last. For good measure, he manages the Raio-ken with it as well, vastly outspeeding his opponent, but not out-damaging him. After a Kamehameha fails to put Magil down, Towa's creation grabs Goku by the throat and slams him into the arena floor. While Goku is still down, Magil knees him in the chest, hand still tight around his throat as he starts punching your friend in the face. Goku can barely block any of it.>A. Damn it Goku you can do this! You can beat him, I know you can!>B. Goku, stop! Please!>C. ...there's a temptation to help him, but, you shouldn't... should you?>D. Something else?

>>42640368You... damn it, Goku! You shout to him as loud as you can, you have to! "You can beat him, I know you can! Come on, Monkey Boy, you have to win. You have to!" Your lips start trembling. Please... gods, please...Magil seems to look in your direction and smirk. He picks up Goku, standing tall. And... Goku starts laughing. Towa's creation tries to clench his hand down on Goku's neck, but Goku manages to free himself with the burst of an Explosive Wave.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cRGY2WAEcdMYou sense Goku's Ki... it outright skyrockets, his aura exploding around him. Chuu Lee gives a little gasp... as a yellow tint flares through Goku's aura. His hair stands upwards, his eyes temporarily go white. Magil can't believe what he's seeing... and attempts to interrupt Goku with that MP Buster attack.Goku dodges. Effortlessly. "I'm... not... gonna lose!" Magil tries to launch a powerful energy attack at Goku, the beam seemingly overwhelming him... but when it fades, it's apparent all it did was ruin his shirt. "Not here! NOT YET!"Magil... steps back in fear. "W-what... ARE you?!"Goku bolts towards his opponent, roaring as his aura blazes around him. One powerful right hook... is all it really takes to finish this. Magil goes flying, landing at the wall out of bounds."M-Magil is out of the ring! S-Son Goku is the winner!"Goku falls to his knees, panting, the aura fading and his hair returning to normal. That took a lot out of him.>A. Run over to him, help him out of the ring>B. Don't scare me like that, monkey boy!>C. Just let him be, he needs a moment>D. Something else?

>>42640840>A. Run over to him, help him out of the ring>"Awesome!">Temporarily forget that Magil's pissed off and we just put ourselves in his line of sight like fools
>>42640977Don't heal that piece of shit. Towa's creations probably can't be healed anyways.
>>42640999Heal Goku, not himdoubt he needs it
>>42640999He is an Artificial Demon, thus he is a cyborg, so healing is probably out.
>>42640993Magil is here to test out what the fighters of Earth are capable of, there's a good chance he'll egg Goku on.
>>42641022Gotcha, my mistake though we should give Goku a Senzu since we need to conserve Ki for our fight against Tien.

>>42641090Nah, Maple's got this.
>>42640840You run over to Goku and... you hug the hell out of him. Goku winces and you let go, then he laughs. "That... that was different... h-hey Maple..."You help him up. "You... you did that thing again. You're incredible, Goku, awesome... but, maybe try to go all unstoppable BEFORE you get so beat up, yeah?" He laughs weakly. "And just... don't scare me like that, monkey boy." You hand him a senzu, and that heals him right up. Power Level seems to increase a bit too, but only just.With a cheeky grin, he gives you a thumbs up. "Haha, I di-!"You get a flash of foresight. You... you don't even really think, you just react. You step in front of him and deflect a beam aimed towards him. Magil stares at you, shocked. That blast had enough power in it to seriously hurt either of you, and it seems to have hurt your hand, but you don't even register it yet. You give the Artificial Demon an almost blank stare, your eye twitching. In a falsely calm voice that's hiding behind it a barely restrained rage, you give flatly, "Leave. And tell Towa that she's done here."Magil... flies off without protest. Your eyes start to water as you smile again. You did it. Gods, you did it...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jSTdqvea_K8>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST #46 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 it for tonight, folks. I'll be here like usual, and like usual, I wanna know: did y'all have fun?
>>42641457Much fun was had. It was pretty DB-esque all around, with some hints of DBZ in there.
>>42641457>In a falsely calm voice that's hiding behind it a barely restrained rageMagil best hope he doesn't meet Maple again. The girl is very angry.Thanks for the run Kato. Intense fights. Wasn't the smartest move for Kami not to tell us what he was planning. We could have assisted in our own way.
>>42641457quick, watch thishttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fvTIZPDfJE0
>>42641457Why do you even ask when you know I'm going to say yes. Have a good night Kato
So, do we plot revenge against Towa for her slap, or take pride in that we could make her lose her enough composure that she would slap us to win an argument?
>>42641457what are people's power levels now!
>>42641587She didn't slap us, she just weakened us to prove a point.
>>42641475Thanks for playing, anon. I'll say this, in spite of how things have shaped up, there's still quite a bit of "Dragon Ball" of some kind to do. Possibly... something a bit closer to Journey to the West as well.>>42641507Kami really wanted you all to focus on Piccolo and Magil. He thought that Garlic would be taken care of pretty quickly, and to be fair, he almost did. Dice... just ended up not in his favor.>>42641543Believe it or not not the first time I've seen that.>>42641578Glad you had fun anon, night!>>42641587She didn't slap you, she paralyzed you with Telekinesis. You threatened to slap her again.>>42641604Mostly the same, Goku's the only one with any real noticeable increase, at 13,500.
>>42641457Good run. This Piccolo feels a lot more like the early Z era Piccolo, he is much more calm and more for defeating Maple and Goku then actual revenge.Maple is really getting under Towa's skin too.Guess we need to figure out how to rescue Kami too after some point.Garlic should have some sort of special trick soon too.
>>42641634Is there any time we can use to help Chuu Lee prepare for her fight against Garlic?
>>42641634So has Piccolo perception of Maple gone from hated enemy to rival?
>>42641653Maybe if we could teleport we could get the two of us to the hyperbolic time chamber in time.
>>42641634Suggestion: Acer abducted by Gero, brainwashing implant, organical mechanical arm
>>42641652Garlic hasn't shown off his full power just yet, so there's that.And he did actually keep to his word. Tien's wound is healed, and there are no side-effects except for the scar.>>42641653She does have a while before the match tomorrow.>>42641694He still kinda hates you, but he begrudgingly respects you. He knows you keep to your word.>>42641701...that is actually possible. You will have some free time coming up...>>42641717Let's not.
>>42641717I think Gero is wary of kidnapping any of the main fighters. Too many tricks out there for most of them, magic and otherwise. Also would ramp up how hard everyone is looking for him.He has been kinda keeping low. Sure he brought back Lucifer, but has not otherwise been aggressive.One thing to remember is in canon he kept 16 close to his son. With the help from Towa floating around, I expect 16 in this quest to be a lot closer to a true human then the original Android/Robot was.>>42641758>...that is actually possible. You will have some free time coming up...Sounds like a very good thing to do. Garlic is a very dangerous enemy and getting her ready for it is important.She already has surpassed Raditzx4 levels of power.
>>42641717For...what purpose, exactly?>>42641758Really? Huh. Who wants to take Chuu Lee on a field trip to Kame's, guys?
>>42641834So he can have a Devil/Angel arm
>>42641834>>42641828Its going to be tough. Garlic Jr. is already twice her PL and he isn't using his full power...She'll need to learn Kaioken at the very least.
An alternate idea is finding out if Makyans sleep, and possibly trying to steal Kami in the night.
>>42641901......The only thing that comes to mind is Vash the Stampede.
>>42641934Of course they do if you hit them hard enough
>>42641758Kato what was Piccolo's full power? 18k+?
>>42641634>13,500Why not more?
>>42642066Zenkai gives diminishing returns as PL gets higher in this quest. I think.Also he just got beat up, not mortally wounded.
>>42641901Could he seal a sword demon in his arm to git Trunks-tier gud at swordfighting?
>>42642074We're nowhere near the point where it gives diminishing returns yet.
>>42641828>>42641834>>42641902The most you could get out of such a trip would be about 150 days of training. At the same time, she might not be willing to try it, might feel like "cheating" to her.>>4264201716k. Now it's 9010.>>42642066While injured, it wasn't near-fatal to him. Zenkai didn't have much of a boost to give.If that last attack hit, though...
>>42642133>At the same time, she might not be willing to try it, might feel like "cheating" to her.I understand that. It'll be her choice.
>>42642133But it's likely she would agree to learning one last technique before the big match? Ah well, let's just ask her next thread.
>>42642133Does Chu Lee have any other techniques that Maple might not know about? Garlic is pretty tough, but Chuu Lee might be able to win by technicalities if she uses the right attacks at the right time. Or she might surprise us all by having thought of something on her off-time that she wanted to keep a secret for the tournament in case she faced off against any of the gang.
>>42642209Yeah the best way for her to win is make him overconfident and Wind his ass out of bounds when he least expects it.
remember those upvotes, this thread was killer
>>42642133>Acer Fanclub will never be a thing
>>42642280Nigga he got Tuffle!ChiChi. He's all good. Even Maple agrees.
