>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 quarterfinals, defeating Tien as your student cleared her match against Giran, though at the cost of getting tricked by one of his techniques. Yajirobe fought against Garlic Jr. and, with Trip's assistance, almost overcame him, though a brief slip-up resulted in the young samurai's loss. You met with Piccolo again to try and devise a plan to save Kami, though after learning of his intentions decided to find a better way...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K8JwUGR9Sok
>>42719094You fly back towards the Tournament, arms crossed. That could have gone better... though you're probably heading in the right direction. You arrive and see Trip... waiting for you. The expression on her face has a very... well, she clearly is trying to not say "I told you so" but you don't have to read her mind to know she wants to."Maple. I would assume that your meeting-"You raise your hand to stop her. "Price was too high. Not going to risk letting Piccolo do what he wanted. He's a dumb kid trying to follow in his father's footsteps when it's clear he has no idea what he's getting himself into." You then look at her with a soft expression. "...and if I agreed to it, you'd probably never forgive me. Don't know if I could forgive myself, either."Trip's expression changes to one of concern... and then relief. "Thank you. But... now what kind of plan do you believe will save Kami?">A. It's risky, but it's our best shot if we want to accomplish this tonight. Is Oolong awake?>B. I'm going to talk with my student a bit before we start anything>C. ...I won't protest if you try that same trick with Garlic again, but only for Chuu Lee>D. Something else?
>>42719112>>A. It's risky, but it's our best shot if we want to accomplish this tonight. Is Oolong awake?Hi friend Kato
>>42719112>Oolong Wouldn't puar be a good choice too? Or did we pick Oolong because he's more likely to help a sneaky thing.
>>42719112>A. It's risky, but it's our best shot if we want to accomplish this tonight. Is Oolong awake?
>>42719139Puar helped Yamcha in his bandit schemes, and is the better shapeshifter.But I'm still going with Oolong because he's underappreciated.
>>42719136Hello.>>42719139Puar is currently with Bulma, Yamcha, Krillin and his students, and the baby. Oolong's nearby.
>Equal exchange with Oolong>Clothes beam>Panties panties panties!
Too bad we couldn't pop onto the hyperbolic time chamber with Chuu Lee and train.Give us time to match Goku.
>>42719336Nah, we are more than prepared man. You know both Maple and Chuu Lee wouldn't want to do that.
>>42719112>B. I'm going to talk with my student a bit before we start anything"Do you reckon we could teach her Samma Vaca in a dream?"
>>42719370Vaca is like the 3rd or 4th step mang.
>>42719384Yeah, so we should get started.
>>42719349Dice'll probably favor Garlic again. >>42719370If everyone who knows it does it together will that neutralize his entire boost?Also doing that mental training Krillin and Gohan did on their way to Namek would be helpful for teaching techniques.
>>42719409Nah, that'd go against the tournament mindset with interfering with matches and stuff. Let's just try to teach it to our student.
>>42719112You cross your arms, standing straight, trying to put this all together. Maybe if the actual Piccolo won't help you... " It's risky, but it's our best shot if we want to accomplish this tonight. Is Oolong awake?"Trip gives you a curious look. "Oolong? I believe so but-" And then it hits her. "...this is a rather sneaky thing to do, Maple. I'm not sure how I feel about this... but I'm willing to trust you on this."You grin wide. "Great! So, who else is awake?""Son Goku, Tien, Chiaotzu, and Launch have turned in for the night. Your brother, Chi-chi, Tao, Yajirobe, your master, and the Ox King are awake. Your student has been trying to rest, but she is... anxious." she responds calmly. "Perhaps you should talk with her, calm her nerves, when you get the chance."You tilt your head at her. "Say... why are you up still?"The woman looks down. "I am having trouble sleeping. I do not wish you or your friends to put yourselves at greater risk than you already are at.">A. We WILL save Kami, promise>B. Ah don't fret over this, we'll be fine!>C. I'll be spearheading this, let me talk it over with everyone>D. Gonna let brobro spearhead this, I'll be backup>E. Something else?
>>42719370Okay, so we make her go to sleep in her dream, then do it again, then do it again, and then use the extended amount of time to implant our knowledge so she can use it to her advantage.
>>42719426Samma Vaca needs to be maintained by the person using it, and requires good concentration.It might not be very helpful for Chuu Lee to learn it for the purpose of this match, since she can't fight and maintain it at the same time.
>>42719452>A. We WILL save Kami, promise>D. Gonna let brobro spearhead this, I'll be backup>E. Seeya, gonna go talk things over with Chuu Lee
>>42719452>A. We WILL save Kami, promise>C. I'll be spearheading this, let me talk it over with everyoneAlso guys for the love of god stop trying to cram last minute shit into our student. If she wins she wins, if she loses she loses and Goku or us can easily beat Garlic.
>>42719426Well I mean for after tournament and if his minions donate their power to Garlic.Or Towa gives the power she took from Piccolo and gave it to Garlic.>>42719452>Have Trip meditate witha Chuu Lee and Maple.>A. We WILL save Kami, promise
>>42719490>if his minions donate their power to Garlic.>implying they're the only onesBut if they are the only ones, let's use the Samma Vaca on them instead of Garlic, that'd work.
>>42719452>A. We WILL save Kami, promise>D. Gonna let brobro spearhead this, I'll be backupTake it away Acer anons!>E. Talk with Chuu Lee
>>42719518How about we go shake some spices until they talk?
>>42719566>I notice that we're pretty high up in the atmosphere, and that you have to run in order to fly...>Ummm, yes? Where are you going with this?>Sure would be a shame if your legs broke for some reason, huh? Especially ALLLL the way up here, y'know?
>>42719452You give her a stern, determined look. "We WILL save Kami. Promise."Trip... just smiles. "Of course. Now, who all will be doing this?""Brobro should spearhead it, and I'll stay as backup. Garlic might be a bit less suspicious if he doesn't feel me coming for him, and Acer's smart. He'll be able to pull this off." As you explain more about your plan to her on the way, you meet with your brother, Chi-chi, Tao, Yajirobe, and Oolong, Roshi and the Ox King listening in. Explaining the situation to them, Oolong is initially reluctant, though your brother manages to convince him. acer also requests Tao assist them, seeing as he has... something of an expertise in this field. A promise of a healthy fee to pay for it manages to convince him as well.With things set, you and Sanzo wait back, with you heading over to Chuu Lee. You see her staring out the window, trying to get her thoughts in order. You surprise her a little as she hears your voice behind her but after the initial shock, she seems a bit happier. "So... you kinda flew off there, Master. Something important?""Kinda. Managed to clear it up as best I could." you tell her. She raises an eyebrow, aware that there's more to it than you're letting on, but doesn't pry any deeper. You stand next to her, looking out the window as well. "Can't sleep, huh?"She looks down with a sheepish smile. "Lot going through my head. I'm happy that I've gotten so far, but... I don't know what I'd do with myself if I won. And then I think, 'Isn't that a bit presumptuous?' And then I remember how much stronger you and Goku and Garlic are, and..." She runs her fingers through her hair. "Agh. What am I supposed to think, Master? Was... was it like this during your first Tournament?">A. Little bit, but don't worry, you'll do fine!>B. Can't guarantee you a victory, but there's no real shame in losing, especially after all this>C. Well back at my first Tournament, I meditated on it. Wanna try that?>D. Something else?
>>42719962>B. Can't guarantee you a victory, but there's no real shame in losing, especially after all this>D. Something else?"As long as you give it your best you'll be fine! Just know that I am extremely proud of you, no matter what happens."Then>C. Well back at my first Tournament, I meditated on it. Wanna try that?
>>42719962>D. Well, there were people who were stronger than me. But I used my mind and kept my cool, and eventually I defeated my rival just barely.That was the second tournament, Kato.
>>42719962>B. Can't guarantee you a victory, but there's no real shame in losing, especially after all this.> But, hey, during my first tournament my master joined in, and I still came out on top, so don't count yourself out.>C. Well back at my first Tournament, I meditated on it. Wanna try that?
>>42720049No we tried meditation for the first time at the first tournament.
>>42720069Ah, you're right.

>>42719962You smile at her. "Can't guarantee you a victory, but there's no real shame in losing, especially after all this. My first Tournament... it was nuts. My own Master was there, almost beat Goku, and then it was me against him in the final round. I just barely defeated him. Don't count yourself out, but don't go in expecting a victory either. It'll be hard, not going to tell you it isn't..." You take a deep breath and place your hand on her shoulder. "No matter what happens, I'm proud of you. And I'm sure your mom's proud too."She nods. "Thanks, Master. I won't let you down."You then sit down, telling her to sit by you. "Back at my first Tournament, and even at the second, well... I decided on meditating on something like this. Wanna try it with me?"She blinks and considers it for a moment. With a cheeky grin, she lets out a calmed "Sure." and sits next to you.The two of you take some time to collect your thoughts, focusing on them, and clearing your minds of any distractions. It's a... bit of a refreshing exper- oh hey visions.
>>42720717https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=THR3LIK9yIsWait... visions of now? You see... what is probably Oolong, disguised as Piccolo, standing outside Garlic Jr.'s window as the Makyan rests. Tao, dressed in a disguise, has snuck into the room silently, retrieving the little bottle with Kami in it. Or... he would be, if he didn't suddenly catch the attention of one of Garlic's minions. The man tries to shout at him, but your brother telekinetically retrieves the bottle and moves it to "Piccolo's" hand. Oolong, in his best impression of the Namekian, gives a little pompous speech to the Makyans, letting Tao escape into the shadows. They seem confused, angry, and suspicious, though your brother bolts Oolong out of there before they can respond. He flies off with the transformed pig man, approaching your window and..."Maple, catch!"Your eyes open and as fast as you can, you react. You catch the jar with Kami in it and then bolt off to Trip, waiting outside with the Nimbus nearby. You quickly give her Kami, and then bolt back to the room, watching her fly off into the night.You did it. Chuu Lee seems to have noticed the stunt, but you tell her that it's something you all did just now to prevent the situation from getting worse. Now, you can all fight at your best.Finally getting some rest in, both of you feeling refreshed, far more confident than you were before. When you wake... you see Tao, Oolong, and Acer have acquired something else during the little encounter last night.The 1-Star Dragon Ball.>A. Ask brobro if that means what you think it means>B. Try to find your Scouter to make sure it's the real deal>C. Congratulate them all on the teamwork, offer something extra for Oolong and Tao>D. Something else?
>>42720717With Chuu Lee's senses I wonder if she'll learn to unlock potentials in others. Like Guru or Old Kai.>>42720742>Clothes beam panties for Oolong>Ask Tao if he'd like training in the gravity chamber when its fixed.
>>42720742>A. Ask brobro if that means what you think it means>B. Try to find your Scouter to make sure it's the real deal>C. Congratulate them all on the teamwork, offer something extra for Oolong and TaoAll of the above.The 1 star was with Towa right? Which implies she gave Garlic a ball right?
>>42720742>D. Interrogate the three spices on which wise guy is powering up Garlic, clonck their heads together if you have to, offer sanctuary against Garlic if they comply nicely
>>42720837Its Towa I think. Since Vaca works on him its most likely demonic Ki.
>>42720742>>A. Ask brobro if that means what you think it means>>B. Try to find your Scouter to make sure it's the real deal>>C. Congratulate them all on the teamwork, offer something extra for Oolong and Tao
>>42720866Making decisions based on intuitions, is always a sign of bad FBI agents.
>>42720866Garlic himself also probably uses demonic Ki since he's a Makyan.
>>42720957Bad? Or BRILLIANT?
>>42720979That game is incredible. In many different ways.
>>42720742"Well guys, great work on that teamwork!"Oolong looks at you with an annoyed grimace. "If I weren't getting something out of this I'd be shouting at you right now for how close I came to death.""We can tell Garlic what's happened." Acer comments. Oolong shudders."How about something extra, for you both?" you ask. "Tao, maybe some training time in the Gravity Chamber?""And 500,00 added to my bill." Tao responds. "Consider it a discount for... not bringing any attention to this."Roshi seems legitimately surprised by that, like he was expecting higher. Brobro just grumbles out "Deal...""How about you Oolong?"The pig man thinks for a moment... and a grin you've seen on Roshi all too often appears on his face. "Oh, I'll think of something. In fact, there's one idea I have..."Acer's expression becomes one of great annoyance as he moves up in front of you extremely defensively. "You ask her that and we see if pigs can fly." Oolong relents, grumbling to himself. You then pull your brother aside."Is that what I think it is, and does that mean what I think it means?" you ask.Acer looks down at the Dragon Ball. "One way to find out..."You get your Scouter and check... yep. It's the real deal all right. And... that's not all. Garlic Jr. has all the other Dragon Balls. What's more, there's one more headed your way. Krillin and the twins are about to touch down. As they do, Goku finally wakes up, heading down with a yawn. The monkey boy notices you all gathered. "Hey guys, what's up?">A. Good news, we saved Kami! Trip's on her way to the Lookout to free him>B. Bad news, Garlic Jr. has all the other Dragon Balls, and now... all of them are on the island>C. Worrying news, Towa seems to be working with Garlic Jr.>D. Something else?
>>42721432>Briefly contemplating teaching oolong how to fly for the sake of innumerable puns
>>42721432>>A. Good news, we saved Kami! Trip's on her way to the Lookout to free him>>B. Bad news, Garlic Jr. has all the other Dragon Balls, and now... all of them are on the island>>C. Worrying news, Towa seems to be working with Garlic Jr.
>>42721432>A. Good news, we saved Kami! Trip's on her way to the Lookout to free him>B. Bad news, Garlic Jr. has all the other Dragon Balls, and now... all of them are on the island>C. Worrying news, Towa seems to be working with Garlic Jr.All of the above again I suppose.
>>42721432>A. Good news, we saved Kami! Trip's on her way to the Lookout to free him>D. We also know where the dragonballs are
>>42721454Aw damn it I missed a 0.
>>42721432>A. Good news, we saved Kami! Trip's on her way to the Lookout to free him>B. Bad news, Garlic Jr. has all the other Dragon Balls, and now... all of them are on the island>C. Worrying news, Towa seems to be working with Garlic Jr.>D. Something else?Who would be perfect to guard each Dragonball thats not in our group?
Say, was it established how Towa was finding the Dragon Balls so quickly? Is she able to sense them, or does she have some other way of doing that? That might be something to look into once we've dealt with Garlic.
>>42721563Gero made a dragon scouter for the Red Ribbon Army.
>>42721563She has Gero unfortunately.
>>42721563Was it established how Garlic's henchmen found the Dragon Balls so quickly?
>>42721600In canon? No idea actually. Save time cause its a movie?Here Towa just gave them away.
>>42721585>>42721590Ah, right. I remember now.

Maple wears Wonder Woman Underoos>>42721806Seeing as there are only two at the moment, they might be a little hard to come by.
>>42721824They never said they had to be alive, nyigguh
>>42721432You turn to him and smile. "Good news, monkey boy! We saved Kami, and Trip's on her way to the Lookout to free him!"Goku's face lights up. "That's great!""The bad news is, well, we know what's happened to the Dragon Balls." You nod to your brother, himself holding the orange sphere in his hand. "All of them are on the island. Garlic Jr. has the others. And what's worse, Towa seems to be working with him...""Ah. Well damn." Goku frowns. "...though this means we have the most of them, don't we?""Yeah, but now we'll have to be extra cautious..." Acer tells him. "You should hold on to yours. Tien, you and Chiaotzu still have your Dragon Ball, right?""I have it on me." the triclops confirms."Hey, don't mean to interrupt you guys, but here's some more good news." Krillin interjects. "Bulma and Yamcha's daughter was born yesterday."That catches most people's attention. Lazuli smiles coyly, standing next to Krillin. "She's a sweet little thing. Oh she's so cute! You guys gotta come see her when this is all over!" Her brother... doesn't quite share her enthusiasm."Let's not crowd them out." Krillin asks with a laugh. "But... guess that means we're not returning to Capsule Corp. with the Dragon Ball. Aw damn, guess this was a bit of a wasted journey..." Krillin slouches."Well, Bulma and Yamcha and the baby are no longer targets, I'd say that's a good thing!" Blue Launch adds, trying to reassure him.>A. We should split them up, play keep-away>B. ...guys, I just had a BRILLIANT idea!>C. Well, anyone have any good plans on how to handle this?>D. Something else?

>>42721854>B. ...guys, I just had a BRILLIANT idea!
>>42721854>B. If there's one thing I'm sure Garlic and his cronies wouldn't do for power, it's "harming a child." We should have the baby eat a dragon ball!
>Suspend the dragonballs in a pool of sacred water>Build psychic jammers also surrounded by the sacred water>Do all of this down where Darkness is, to protect themNo evil will ever get them out.
>>42721854>B. ...guys, I just had a BRILLIANT idea!Our last brilliant plan ended up with Kami rescued, after all
>>42721854>D. "Dragon Ball wish as a surprise prize."
I honestly wouldn't mind Stealth training from Tao. It'd be pretty useful in some of the most dire scenarios. Hell, we could develop techniques specifically designed to aid stealth even more.
>>42721966We could go learn ninjutsu from the ninja guy.
>>42721854>>B. ...guys, I just had a BRILLIANT idea!Maple ideas are always brilliant
>>42721966We already know the cardboard box technique.
>>42722036Fufufu, you have yet to see true power, fool!METAL BARREL TECHNIQUE!SIDEWARDS ROLLING SPECIALTY!
>>42721966>From studying Pilaf, Tao knows the basic pressure points of Makay>Passes it on during gravity training time.
>>42722059>>42722018>>42721679>>42721638Did you know that Chakra's an Indian concept?
>>42722119Is it the eyes?
>>42722210Watch out, goku! Yamcha is preparing to incinerate your fingers with eye-lasers!
>>42722281He interrupted the attack.
>>42721854>D. Redirect Krillin's crew to the Lookout.Let's be honest, that would likely be the safest location currently. That way if Garlic tries to make this the Dead Zone movie early, chances are he dies from it.
>>42721854You get a... let's call it spark of inspiration. One that sounds crazy even thinking about it. The best kind of spark of inspiration. "...guys, I just had a BRILLIANT idea!"Brobro looks at you with great concern. "You're not going to feed one of the Dragon Balls to a T. Rex or something?"You give him an annoyed glare. "No, we'll give it to the baby.""Maple." he grunts."But really. Even if Garlic Jr. has all the Dragon Balls... who says he gets to make the wish?" You smile wide, catching everyone's attention. "We'll keep ours. He has to go through us in order to make the wish. He has no bargianing chips in his favor, and for all the help she's given him currently, looks like Towa hasn't really done much else to help him. We keep the Dragon Balls here, and wait for him to make his move. Even if he summons Shenron... we can stop him from making his wish, if it's anything bad."Acer... seems far more on board with this idea than you thought he'd be. "Then you, Goku, Tien or I could use the Raio-ken and make the wish first... okay, sure!""Any objections?" And... well, nobody really seems to want to argue right now, but probably because they don't have any other, better ideas. "Then that settles it!"You all get some breakfast before the Tournament resumes, making sure to get everyone up to speed on the details of what happened. Chuu Lee tells you that she feels... less outright confident, but more simply ready. She'll be cheering you on during your match. Goku is almost bouncing with excitement for it, his tail swaying back and forth. After breakfast, there's still some time to do a little something before things resume...>A. Talk with some of your friends a bit (who?)>B. Explore around for a while, get some fresh air>C. Something else?
>>42722441I mean, if it comes down to it, we can always prepare to kill shenron before a wish is made. Not like he won't come back with a little fixing.If garlic really wants that wish, he'll have to personally stop all the attacks coming at shenron, which could be crucial to defeating him because he just tanked a lotta damage.
>>42722441>C. Holy shit, I've been up all night, I need a nap.
>>42722441>A. Talk with some of your friends a bit (who?)Krillin and his students about the new parents and baby.>>42722495She got rest.
>>42722441>B. Explore around for a while, get some fresh airStory option best option
>>42722441>B>>42722318Or we could make a silly wish. Like for an order of Peking duck for everyone in our group.
How does Samma Vaca work?
>>42722561Drains demonic ki.
>>42722544How about a flying school?
>>42722561Channeled debuff against demonic ki or to a lesser extent really evil dudes.
>>42722544Did Oolong ever save the world by wishing for panties yet? If not, that could be what happens. Or we wish Kami back to his prime. Or for the gravity chamber to stop breaking all the damn time.
>>42722569On a single target, or in general?
>>42722603Never really tried it on a group, to be honest. Mainly because the average demon ain't got shit on us.
>>42722603Single target with a slight AoE since it affected Shuras minions around him too.
>>42722601We might want to hit up Jaco or the Galactic Patrol for that. They probably have spaceships and space stations with artificial gravity systems that have to be able to withstand the forces of FTL travel and gravitational forces of planets and stuff. They might be able to give Bulma/Maple & Co. some insight on how to make a robust gravity chamber.
>>42722589So we can just stop demonic ki moving around through airwaves if we just have an aura going?
>>42722601"I WISH KAMI WAS SWOLE"
>>42722441>B. Explore around for a while, get some fresh air
>>42722653"In my next life I wish I could be a bird"
>>42722690"I wish a nigga would"
>>42722653Think wishing that the planetary guardian was always the strongest on the planet awould give Kame a buff or others a debuff?
>>42722704Depends on the intent of the wisher. Shenron is a good wishgranter.Also, that's beyond his power I think.
>>42722704Shenron probably can't increase anyone's power more than how strong the current guardian is, no matter how you word the wish.
>>42722690>First time we die, we are instantly reincarnated.>Can never be ressurected as Maple>Bad end?
>>42722745It's not that bad, we have all these powers that rely on mental and spiritual prowess. Plus, telepathy.
>>42722690I read that as bard.We already have rolled to seduce Towa twice now.
>>42722703>THAT IS BEYOND MY POWER
>>42722783DBZ Bird Quest?But what kind of bird?
>>42722788Too bad she's not even in our Top 10.
>>42722840An Android 16 Bird.Or a 1000 year old falcon.
>>42722578>>42722854But she's in our top 20
>>42722703"I wish I wish for a fish."
>>42722854She's in my top 10. Just above the demon god.
>>42723164>"I wish I wish with all my heart to fly with dragons in a land apart">pic related>"How apart do you want this land again?"
>>42723206To be fair it would be a selfish wish, thus creating a second Shadow Dragon like Nuova.

>>42722441You end up taking some time to yourself, getting some fresh air and enjoying the festivities around the Tournament. It'd be fairly relaxing... if people would stop asking for your autograph. First time in a while you've really gotten a chance to interact with your fans, but... hey, if it keeps them happy. You notice Suno and Eighter have arrived, the two of them chatting with Goku for a bit. Once the redheaded girl notices you, however, she immediately comes over. "So we meet again. Heh..." she addresses you with a bit of a nervous laugh."Been doing good, Suno?" you question with a bit of a smirk."Y-yeah..." she says nervously.You laugh. "Suno I don't have to read your mind to see what's on it right now. Come on."She laughs. "Y-yeah... I mean, I told your brother already, but, I..." she turns to look back at Goku, both him and Eighter chuckling to themselves as they catch up. "...you're kinda lucky, Maple."Your face goes a little red. "...well, I mean..."Suno places her hand on your shoulder. "But I'm glad he has someone like you.""Ah, please..." Well, weren't expecting-"Maple Mahogany! So good to see the Mifan Champion again!" ...Emperor Pilaf?You turn around and notice him, Mai, Shu, General Blue, and even the Crane Hermit together. Shen approaches you first. "You may have defeated Tien, but do not think that the Crane School will play second fiddle to the Turtle School forever. Already we have some promising new students we've been scouting out.">A. Great to hear! Krillin and I have gotten some students ourselves>B. Why are you all here anyway?>C.

>>42723280"Hey, great to hear! Krillin and I have gotten some students as well. But... could you hold that thought?" you raise your finger and scoot back to Suno. "S-sorry about that. But, um... yeah."The other redhead looks at Pilaf curiously, but decides against saying anything to him. A bit too strange for her taste. "Well... y-yeah. Um... Eighter's been doing good at Jingle Village. It's the first time we've been out in quite a while, and felt it'd be nice to check up on you all again. I mean, it's nice watching at home and all, but we kinda want to be here to cheer for you and Goku. So... good luck."Suno walks back over to Eighter with a smile on her face, you turning back to Pilaf's group. "So... why are you all here, anyway?""I want a front-row seat for when you or your friends put that Garlic Jr. creep's lights out!" Pilaf shouts a little excitedly, throwing a punch in the air and stumbling a little. Mai and Shu catch him, and with a silent cough as he stands again. "Plus it's good publicity, seeing as you are the Mifan Champion.""That makes sense." you say with a bit of a shrug. Well, guess it does? After the pleasantries are over, it's... finally time to get ready for your match. You, Goku, and Chuu Lee make your way to the stadium, your friends all heading towards the crowds. You spot the furious face of Garlic Jr. approach you all as well."You. I know you punks had something to do with that. And if you didn't... you wouldn't be so calm." he states angrily, eye twitching.>A. My, whatever are you talking about, Garlic?>B. Wanna make a wager?>C. Ignore him, talk with Goku>D. Ignore him, talk with Chuu Lee>E. Something else?
>>42723832>A. My, whatever are you talking about, Garlic?Because we fully intend to reclaim Kami over your unconcious body
>>42723832"Settle down, you're going to pop a blood vessel like that, and aneurysms are pretty serious."
>>42723832>E. Rub his big fat nose in it
>>42723832>>E. Something else?"You are in over your head Garlic">C. Ignore him, talk with Goku"You ready for this monkey boy?"
>>42723832>>A. My, whatever are you talking about, Garlic
>>42723867Honestly, it's pretty surprising that there aren't any aneurysms or popped blood vessels in the series. Some people get RIDICULOUSLY angry. And their veins bulge so far out.
>>42723832>A. My, whatever are you talking about, Garlic?"Don't tell me you lost "King Piccolo" now.">C. Ignore him, talk with Goku"Don't forget our wagers, monkey boy!"
>>42723867This. Maybe in a naive tone.
>>42723916>"Don't forget our wagers, monkey boy!"Pretty sure he remembers man.
What would it be like if someone wished for everyone in the world to be in their prime?What if they wished for every martial artist to be in their prime?
>>42723832>E. Gee, the great hero Garlic let the demon king "Piccolo" slip through his fingers?

>>42723832>B. Wanna make a wager?"Help build me a school if my student beats you silly!"
>>42724093Man we don't really need a physical building for it. We've taught Chuu Lee just fine without it.
>>42724093We aren't building a school anon. We'll take on 1 or maybe 2 pupils sometimes, but that's the extent of it.
>>42723832>C. Ignore him, talk with Goku
>>42724106>>42724108Just think: our own library of magic tomes, our own gravity chamber, our own sparring grounds with obstacle coursesAnd it's all for enriching the education of those few pupils
>>42724093Never with Garlic, the fuck's too unstable and, frankly, incompetent-every time he fails, he is at least partially responsible for things going to shit for himself.
>>42724139Pass. I'd rather have the casual approach to teaching we've had with Chuu Lee.
>>42724186Well, I guess his castle's a bit unstable as well.>>42724192And I want a flying school.
>>42724139We can build a house and have that anon. Why not make that our house in the future, really?
>>42724277We can land it on the side of Mt. Paozu near Goku's house. He'd probably dig the training facilities.
>>42723832"Settle down, you're going to pop a blood vessel like that, and aneurysms are pretty serious." you tell him in as concerned of a tone as you can manage. Really, that looks kinda nasty. And dangerous. "We're going to reclaim Kami after we beat you.""TH-" he starts, but stops, trying to calm himself. "Your friend's life is in danger, then. And furthermore, would you happen to have any idea where our Dragon Ball is?""You had a Dragon Ball?" you question."...keep this up. Please do. We'll see what happens." the Makyan grunts at you. "I hope that friend of yours likes her ability to wa-"You turn to him angrily. "You're out of your league, Garlic. Overconfident. You won't win this, I promise you that. You can keep this up and let people get suspicious when the great 'hero' seems to have let 'King Piccolo' slip through his fingers. We'll rescue Kami if you've lost him like you claim, and stop any other schemes you have in store."Garlic grunts in frustration and walks off. Goku looks at him for a moment, almost a sense of... pity on his face, then at you, his confident expression returning. "Ready for this, Maple?"You place your hand forward, tapping fists with him. "You bet I am."(cont.)
>>42724294Also, we need a badass kitchen for the stuff we capture and cook. Spacefaring ability would be cool as well.
>>42724305The two of you walk together towards the ring, the crowds going nuts as they are ready to see your rematch once again. It's... almost overwhelming. The blonde Announcer guy addresses you both. "And here it is, folks, the main event! Our returning Champion, Maple Mahogany, against her long-time rival and fellow Turtle School member, Son Goku! This will be the third rematch they've had, and while Maple came out on top the two previous times, it looks like Goku isn't backing down!"The both of you... nod at each other, and decide to show off a bit. You dash into the air, flipping before you land in the ring, then take turns throwing a few practice strikes. You both finish it off taking your stances, and the crowds absolutely eat it up."What a nice little show for before the match starts! It seems both fighters are going to be giving it their all! Without further ado... fighters ready? BEGIN!"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K8JwUGR9Sok>A. Test the waters a bit, see how ready Goku is>B. No holding back! You've both been waiting for this!>C. Go on the defensive, be ready for him>D. Energy Attack!>E. Something else?
Having our own school sounds dangerously close to the "make a team of improbably strong normal humans" route that Human Quest went down. If the students are significantly weaker than the threat we're facing, there was no point to them being there in the first place, and if they can handle it themselves, we don't even need to bother, and it becomes much less interesting.I would like to avoid Human Quest's mistakes as much as possible, because in addition to making the quest bad, they make it really, really boring.Besides, going on actual adventures is way more interesting than being tied down to a school. It doesn't even seem like something Maple would WANT to do as a full-time job.No flying school. It's a neat concept, but in practice, it's really not the direction the quest should be going.>B. No holding back! You've both been waiting for this!Let's rock.

>>42724319>B. No holding back! You've both been waiting for this!Goku is used to us being defensive at the start of every match, right?So let's throw him a curveball and hit him as hard as we can, right from the get-go. No waiting to pull out trump-cards or testing waters, let's just BEAT HIM DOWN.
Hey, remember that time we rolled a 1 when we attempted do enhance our energy attacks with a Spirit Gate, and it bounced back after the thing exploded? Could we weaponize that effect?
>>42724411>Hey, remember that time we rolled a 1 when we attempted do enhance our energy attacksNo...I don't think thats ever happened.
Rolled 2, 10, 8, 5, 3 + 8 = 36 (5d10 + 8)1d20, best of 5!
>>42724428>Using all six of your Spirit Bits, you end up starting something similar to the old Shield, though with the opposite effect entirely. Concentrating their power into the "surface," you make a "gate" of sorts that can Amplify energy attacks. In a test on its capabilities, you try a Kamehameha through it... and end up with a blast almost on par with your Poltergeist Blitz. Perhaps even stronger. That... that's... you're amazed by the kind of power you end up throwing around with that. Oh this will be AWESOME. You even manage to work in a Lightning enhancement to them, though your first test of it resulted in you... sort of shooting yourself in the face. It seems that they're a little harder to control with the magical enhancement.These things can bounce other things back.

>>42724652I know it won't happen but I hope we tie a lot in this fight.
>>42724319As soon as you're given the go, both you and Goku dash at each other, first leaving afterimages of where you both are when you're about to strike, only to appear above them, forearms locked. The initial blow leaves a small shockwave from the sheer force of it. You and Goku strike again, this time hitting each other in the jaw. You both can't help but smirk at that.He takes to the ground first, with you following him, a few Spirit Bits prepped and ready. Goku dodges out of the way of most of their shots, though a lucky blast to the shoulder lets you spinkick him right in the gut. Goku takes the opportunity, though, to quickly grab you by your leg and fling you to the ground, kneeling as you try to stand up and grabbing your leg again with his tail. This time though, you push off with your other leg and bring Goku to the ground, landing a powerful elbow blow to his chest. He gets back up, and even with your superior reflexes helping you, he's almost able to match you blow for blow."H-heh heh! This is great, Maple! But can't back down just yet..." Goku... takes an odd stance, unlike his usual "open" one. He pushes his leg back, hands on the ground. He's planning something.>A. Keep attacking! With all you've got!>B.

>>42725121The opportunity is to win as fast as we can. Goku has way more stamina than us, so we need to sucker punch him.
>>42725137That wouldn't sucker punch him. Goku is smart, he'd run away and have us waste it.Do it when he is stunned or a reactive measure to what he is doing.
>>42725137And give our fans (and Goku) a shifty fight?
>>42725165inb4 its only about winning
>>42725165It's the only way we can win. Saiyans get stronger the longer they fight.
>>42725153I agree with this anon. If we do something like that, it should be a follow-up to a solar flare or something. >>42725188I think you're confusing the Legendary Super Saiyan for Goku. Admittedly he's really good at this point, but he's not legendary nor very super.
>>42725188No they don't. They get boosts from being mortally wounded and recovering from it.Listen stop worrying about winning super quick and enjoy this anon.
>>42725205Winning super quick is one of the two ways we can win, winning lucky as fuck is the other one.
>>42725153Think of it like a dance, except with more fists and stepping on toes. This is about testing each other and ourselves, so why not get a bit indulgent and see how far we can push each other, and see what tricks each of us have developed?
>>42725232You are being shortsighted. We've beaten Goku twice now and each time he was stronger than us. Blowing our load at the start is just going to have us lose. I'm done talking about this.
>>42725264Except this time, he's already stronger than us, and we don't even know what he has in store. We should defeat him before he can show us.
>>42725263>>42725264That's Frieza logic, and things ended SO well for that guy.
>>42725306Yea, but Goku isn't trying to kill us.
>>42725135>Would've specified that, and didn't want to take away 5 stamina without warning.Next time, please hold nothing back the next time you include an option with "hold nothing back" in it so this can be less confusing. Like, we held nothing back against Tien, like you said, so that's what I thought was being voted for.
>>42724865You take a defensive stance, readying yourself. Gotta be careful here. Goku bolts at you, dashing along the ground, and immediately tries to land an elbow strike to your face. You push yourself out of the way just in time, causing him to miss, and manage to avoid his next series of kicks, blocking them and knocking them out of the way. You catch his final punch, aimed directly at your gut, and fling him into the air. Goku stops himself, though, readying a Kamehameha and firing it quickly... only for him to just as quickly realize you're not on the ground anymore, you're above him, foresight allowing you to predict that attack.An axe kick to the head sends Goku crashing down. You stay in the air for a moment, smirking. "That was a new one, monkey boy, but looks like I was just a bit too quick for it."Goku hops back up and laughs. "Yeah, you were! But I'm not done yet..." His aura flares around him... and gains a reddish tint. He's using the Kaio-ken, but there might be more than just that...>A. Kaio-ken!>B. KAIO-KEN x3!>C. Raio-ken!>D. Energy attack!>E. Try to weather through this, keep your defense up!>F. Something else?
>>42725349You were the only one confused anon.
>>42725332We're really good at bursts of activity, but not so much prolonged fights. We should go with the "One shot, one kill" philosophy of fighting.
>>42725367>>D. Energy attack!

>>42725306Only when applied to life or death fights. As is, this is a far different beast, allowing for more mindsets. Now if this were Garlic, or Magil? I would be backing your mindset. But for Goku, our friend, and more? Nothing wrong with taking time to really see how far you both can push yourselves. Besides, you said it yourself he has more stamina, and that eats 5 dots of ours. Save it for when it can really be capitalized on, but play it as it is.
>>42725430>Galvanic Volt ChargeWhy not just keep it as Volt Charge then?

>>42725367Best not to let him get the upper hand here. You let out a roar of "Raio-ken!" and play keep-away with him, Goku chasing after you. For added measure, you pop up your Spirit Bits again and start charging! As you dodge Goku's moves, you realize just how much power is going into his attacks, but what's more, each one seems extremely deliberate, far more well calculated than you were expecting. It's a good thing you're keeping the speed advantage over him, or else this would really hurt. What attacks that do almost make it through you're able to defend against with your barrier, though... damn, how much strength does Goku have?As his Kaio-ken finally fades, your own aura returning to normal, it looks like Goku's barely used up any stamina at all. "I'm gonna warn you Maple, that attack's not gonna work this time." he comments, looking at the electricity building up in your palm.>A. Like hell it won't!>B.

Hmm I don't think a distraction will work. He's got too much focus. We need to restrain him or slow him down for this to hit.>F. Something else?Clothes Beam bindings along with Telekinesis to hold him, then fire.
>>42725849>B. You're right, not without... a distraction! CLOTHES BEAM!>F. Punch him in the gut with your electrically charged hand like some broody twelve-year old.
What if we used clothes beam in conjuction with telekinesis to make MOVING CLOTHES SOLDIERS
>>42725913That'd take way too much focus and he'd just punch us.

>>42725998Clothes soldiers are no fun.
So what's our strategy here, guys? We can't keep defending against him. He's got too much stamina, and it seems that he's learned how to conserve energy on attacks and stuff. He might be trying to play the game of attrition with us, wearing down our Ki/Stamina until we can't defend anymore.
>>42726036I'm trying to get a stun off so we capitalize on some damage.
>>42726036We should go for ring out
>>42726036I say we should blitz him to where he doesn't have the time to play a long game against us.
>>42725998Could lead into a future move though, a combo of afterimage and clothes beam where we leave something like a blinding cape or blanket where they try to strike our image, or if we get some more mastery to the point where it ends up letting us materialize more than clothes, shit that adheres things to their faces better for more effort in unblinding themselves. Like imagine using Giran's adhesive in conjunction with an afterimage on someone.

Goku struggles a bit, but it seems you've got him right where you want him! At a full charge, you fling your attack forward... only for Goku to retaliate with an Explosive Wave, blocking it and breaking the binds. A flash of foresight tells you what he's about to do next, but you barely have enough time to dodge the three blows of his Ki-enhanced Jan Ken, the last blow knocking you down, about to fall on your back, only for Goku to catch you with his tail. This time you manage to retaliate, flying up as he tries to fling you down harder, forcing him to let go."H-heh! Nice one, monkey boy!" Damn, that was a close one. Goku's definitely fighting smarter, now. Shoulda' given him more credit. The giddy grin on his face tells you he notices you're impressed. He'll probably see something like that coming again...>A.

Get close, try a Lightning-enhanced Phantom Shotgun and see if you can stun him!Try and bait him into attacking us into the air. Though he's a savvy opponent, I'd bet that he's not *that* used to aerial combat yet. With our TK movements, we can do lots of tiny sidesteps and dodges and other subtle movements like the Mobile Suits do with the minute side-thrusters in their torsos and limbs. Meanwhile, he's stuck trying to move in one direction only.

>>42726661I can't even be mad. These Goku fights are some of the best ones in the whole quest, largely because each one really could go either way.
>>42726650What the dice gods giveth, they can also taketh away. And laugheth at our struggles.

>>42726779I'm not opposed to Goku husbando faggotry like some people are, I don't care.I'm having fun just thinking about these two pummeling each other!
>>42726802Is it bad that I kind of want to lose now so this can happen?Like, I want to win, but part of me doesn't. The struggle is real.
>>42726803Lightning enhanced telekinesis when?
>>42726877I want to win three for three.
>>42726877Nah, we'll try our best to win. Facing a really tough opponent without any side-fights to weaken us beforehand is the only way to force us to come up with new ideas and strategies about how to keep up with the saiyan arms race.
>>42726905Oh, of course. I don't want to throw the fight or anything, either. I was being slightly silly because Goku making a move on us is adorable.
>>42726960My heart can't take the cute
>>42726395Your aura flares up... and with that same, familiar tranquil surge, you let it burst around you! "KAIO-KEN... TIMES THREE!" And that's not all! "RAIO-KEN!" Your aura explodes with power, sparks flying from it as about half the audience cheers you on. You start charging up a Denjin Kamehameha.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dPoq60_icmQAnd then that's when you see it. Goku's aura is the exact same as yours. He's combing both techniques... and this could hurt a LOT for either of you. And you just put yourself at a disadvantage. Shit.Goku bursts into the air, and you barely have enough time to push yourself out of the way of his fist... and not enough time to block his knee landing into your gut. You try your absolute best, managing to use everything you have left to try and outpace Goku. It almost works, and you dodge more of his attacks than you though you'd be able to, even managing to land a couple powerful blows to him with your fancy footwork, but Goku... has outmatched you here. At the same time, his blows don't hurt as much as you're expecting them to be. You're not entirely sure why, but you don't question it right now. Still... you can't keep up charging for your Denjin Kamehameha, and as soon as your auras fade, Goku axe-kicks you down to the ground.You can barely stand as you see his figure jet down to you. No... won't lose here! Not yet! You charge up Ki into your fist, adding a bit of Lightning and right when you think he's in-range, you fling your fist forward... only to realize Goku's left an afterimage. He comes at you from the side, grappling your arm and... he has the absolute goofiest grin on his face. "Nice one, Maple, but guess I was juuuust a bit quicker, this time!">A. You were, Goku, but you let your guard down again! (Headbutt!)>B. Explosive Wave!>C. Phantom Shotgun with the other hand!>D. Been a while since I've last used this. Geist Magnum!>E.

>>42727116>>A. You were, Goku, but you let your guard down again! (Headbutt!)>C. Phantom Shotgun with the other hand!Damnit didn't think Denjin was going get included at the START of the flare up. I was hoping to stun him at least first.
>>42727116>C. Phantom Shotgun with the other hand!>D. Been a while since I've last used this. Geist Magnum!So, is talking a free action, or are we thinking those parts, or is Maple taking dumb pills now?
>>42727116Kick him in the dick.Everyone knows that a saiyan's weak point is their dragonballs.
>>42727116>A. You were, Goku, but you let your guard down again! (Headbutt!)>D. Been a while since I've last used this. Geist Magnum!Combo it into a Solar Flare when he recovers. It could give us an opportunity for a combo at the end.
>>42727116Why do we immediately use these chargeable attacks? Why don't we get to a say in when we use them?

Rolled 17 (1d20)>>42727292>>42727302Bruh, charge attacks are badnewsbears when you fight someone as fast as you, or faster. Especially when said person is not doing a charge attack.
Rolled 14 (1d20)>>42727292Goku's rolls just keep getting lower and we're still neck and neck.
>>42727302>>42727308>>42727314>>42727325>>42727332Looks like you're not out just yet!Writing...
>>42727325The thing is, we can passively charge it, and hold on to it so we can hit things instead of wasting it when we're desperate.
>>42727308>>42727325>>42727332That's more like it!
>>42727325>Bruh, charge attacks are badnewsbearsThats why I wanted to lead with a Lightning Izumi Combo or Phantom Shotgun with the stun. They were both suggested up there.
>>42727349Pretty sure the Denjin Kamehameha does not work that way.
>>42727349Thats Galvanic Boogeyman Volt Hammer.
>>42727366We can't use it smart? That's not how the Zappy Kamehameha works?
>>42727360Relax, Kato was just thinking of a way to write the fact that we didn't reach the DC. Even if we'd done the combo first or the shotgun, it probably would have been the same.
>>42727387I know, was just saiyan.Might have lowered Goku's bonus if we fixed the order but our roll was so crap anyways.
>>42727377Voltonic Lightning Hammer Gal!
>>42727386No, you cannot passively charge the Denjin.
>>42727387It's partially why DC's are weirdEven the best plans have to have some way to fuck up if you somehow don't meet said dcSometimes a plan is so solid you have to retard a character to justify itThat being said, I still like dice systems, I like the inherent randomness in it. I just find it funny how weird things can get because of the results.
>>42727387How about instead of Maple wasting her kamehameha, she just gets her ass beat so we don't run out of Ki that could've been used on that kamehameha?
>>42727456The charge got wasted, that doesn't cost much if I remember right. The actual blast is where the energy is at.
So here's what I was thinking of doing after this current round in fighting. It depends on how Maple's doing on stamina and Ki more than health, but:If we get the headbutt off, we solar flare Goku when he recovers. Or if we did a solar flare just then, we proceed to the next step.Then we power up, double afterimage feint below him, knock him up into the air with a Lightning-charged Phantom Shotgun or something. When that's done, we charge up again with Kaioken, speed up to him and try to grab him if he's stunned or still trying to recover. Then once he's grabbed, we go up farther, then reverse direction really quick. Then we activate Raio-ken. We get the max speed we can achieve, then throw Goku into the ground like a falling star. Thoughts?
>>42727483No, we shot it at Goku, we missed because of an afterimage.
>>42727504Pretty sure that was a lightning-enhanced punch.
>>42727493ORWe get punched out of the ring and go tumbling in the grass.
>>42727483Yes. You didn't waste any Ki, because Goku came at you too quickly.>>42727504That was the Phantom Shotgun.
>>42727493Afterimage solar flareIf he covers his eyes we attack, if he doesn't we blind him.
>>42727525Omega Shenron pls go. We see through your plan to gather negativity for the negative energy spirit bomb.
>>42727601We should base our magic system after the shadow dragons.Their like the only magical elementals we have.I liked the Shadow Dragons. Wanna see Porunga's, Ultimate Shenron's.Be awesome.
>>42727116You smirk at the monkey boy. "You were, Goku, but... you let your guard down again!" Aaaaand HEADBUTT! Goku lets go of your arm, recoiling in pain and OW, OW, GAH! Gods, his skull could crack a continent... no, no, focus! You shake your head a little, and manage to recover just in time. With the last bit of Ki you have left, you charge energy into your fist, give it just that last boost of Lightning, and strike Goku in the stomach. "Phantom... Shotgun!"Goku's flung back and hits the ground with a hard thud, stunned from the blast. "Grhgh... d-damn it...""Can you believe this, ladies and gentlemen?! Even after all that, Maple is STILL going! She's struggling to stay standing, but Goku is the one at a disadvantage here. She might be able to claim a victory here!"You take a step forward, smiling at Goku. In spite of the stun and the pain, he forces himself to smile back. Gods... he probably has one more little trick up his sleeve, doesn't he?>A. Try to kick him out of the ring, or something, can't give up now!>B. Force yourself with what reserves you have left, one last energy attack!>C. ...he'll just manage to keep going, admit defeat>D. Something else?
>>42727664>B. Force yourself with what reserves you have left, one last energy attack!Lets do it guys. Its tradition. Spirit Bit Amplify. Kamehameha. I don't think we have time for Denjin.
>>42727655Before we go delving too deeply into the depths of evil magic stuff, we should try and delve deeply into more neutral elemental magic sources. Read tomes, correspond it with legends, seek out legit deities or powerful elementals and see if we can't get some favors or training.
>>42727664>B. Force yourself with what reserves you have left, one last energy attack!>Kaioken x 5
>>42727664>B. Force yourself with what reserves you have left, one last energy attack!>This>>42727712
>>42727664>B. Force yourself with what reserves you have left, one last energy attackDenjin Kamehameha!
>>42727664"Hey goku, what's two times two?""I dunno, let me see...""Kaioken TIMES FOUR"
>>42727664>B. Force yourself with what reserves you have left, one last energy attack!Double afterimage fake-out Kamehameha him off of the ring! Plus maybe a spirit bit amplify.
>>42727664>>B. Force yourself with what reserves you have left, one last energy attack!
>>42727712>>42727746You can't manage both, Spirit Bits take up energy too.
>>42727664>Goad Goku with a beam battle. Then after-image and strike him point black into a spirit bits enhanced portal.
>>42727775Then just the Kamehameha then.
>>42727783He's stunned on the ground right now, from an attack we used to stun him on the ground right now.
>>42727664>B. Force yourself with what reserves you have left, one last energy attack!
>>42727738Lets do it.
>>42727783Ixnay the portal part.
>>42727783The spirit bits will give it away, he'll notice them moving.
>>42727783No we need to use the stun.
>>42727664>B. Force yourself with what reserves you have left, one last energy attack
>>42727833Is that Chris-Chan?
>>42727664>B. Force yourself with what reserves you have left, one last energy attack!Like there's any other way we SHOULD end this, Kamehameha!
>>42727856He will be the one who finally takes Maples title.

>>42727940Yeah. We were both down for 10 seconds and we had to stand up and say "I am the Champion."Second time was a beam clash where we unveiled the Kaio-ken to overpower him.
>>42727911Dice want as much drama out of this fight as possible. I'm glad.Writing...
Do we have enough stamina to melee this out with our telekinesis?
>>42728001Maybe. We are going to need a damage report next update. See what we have to work with.
Goku gonna get a nice zenkai boost from this fight.
>>42728097I dunno. I don't think he is that hurt. Not nearly as hurt as he was fighting Magil.
>>42728097Not if this just hits him out of the ring.
>>42727664You cup your hands together. Heh, there's only one way either of you will end this by. You may have only a smidge of strength left, but Goku's stunned for long enough that you can manage this. You pull your hands back. "Kaaaa...""And there it is, folks! The signature move of the Turtle School, looks like Maple's giving it everything she has!""Meeee..."You can hear Chi-chi, Chuu Lee, Launch, Acer, and many, many more cheering for you."Haaaa..." Come on... come on...Goku finally stands and smiles wide, prepping a Kamehameha of his own. "Kaa... mee... haaaa..."The two of you give a louder "MEEEEE..." as you finally start to build up energy, just enough to match Goku. You can hear half of the audience cheering for the monkey boy as well. Gods, this really is it...You and Goku fling your hands forward and roar. "HAAAAA!"The beams meet in close to the middle of the arena. You give it your all, every last ounce of strength... and a powerful explosion knocks both you and Goku back."L-ladies and gentlemen, both competitors are down! We'll be starting the count soon!">A.

I think we just went from>A. Force yourself up, have to... have to.To>B. No... no strength left... just... smile...Once the exhaustion set in
>>42728495>>42728502We lift ourselves up with our TK, get into a melee form, and fall unconscious.
Biggest upset of the tournament.We also date the guy we lost too. That's kinda cute.
>>42728536Hey he trained hard for this. Just means we gotta reclaim our title next tournament!.
>>42728556A three-time winner doesn't necessarily win three times in a row.
>>42728536NIce work monkey-boy.
How happy do you guys think Acer anons are right now?
>>42728615>"FUUUUUCK, OUR SISTER BEAT US, AND SHE DIDN'T EVEN WIN THE THING!"
>>42728615They're still celebrating over their covert ops victory. This may just be a cherry on top of the salty sundae that Acer players made for themselves.Meanwhile, other Acer quest players are still hopeful that Maple not winning the fight and getting a kiss leaves the possibility of a Towa route for her.
>>42728615>She finally lost one! Now I can stop hearing about 'Champ Maple this Champ Maple that'. Now we can focus on important things. Like during her sword into a guan dao by Annin and find Masamune!
>>42728532It would be super cute if Goku's first action after getting up was to notice that Maple was unconscious and go see if she was OK rather than celebrating.
>>42728615They just went from "among the second best" to "among the third best".
>>42728686If she is unconscious she is probably sleeping with a smile on her face.
This was an awesome fight, and I can't even be upset about how this ended. Good stuff.
>>42728708And then Goku catches himself thinking that Maple looks cute when she's sleeping.
>>42728708>With a little blood spurting up out of it every now and then.
>>42728720Goku is the best guy to lose too.Don't even need to worry about the final match.Unless Goku gets several ones.
>>42728177You struggle. You try your absolute hardest. What little strength you have left. It... it...It's not enough.After you strain what little stamina you have left, you close your eyes, a smile on your face. The last thing you see while you're still conscious... is Goku's figure approaching. Heh... you earned this, monkey boy...You're the best.You wake up a short while after, finding Chi-chi tending to your wounds. Upon noticing your eyes open, she smiles. You hear your brother's voice. "Welcome back to the world of the living, sis.""Mmn... five more minutes..." you grumble out, causing both of them to laugh. You also hear a third person's laughter. Heh... hey there, monkey boy."You were awesome, Maple!" he says with a giddy expression. "Glad I won and all, but... wow, I don't know if I could have pushed myself as hard as you did."Chi-chi gains a bit of a sly slime on her face. "Goku got a little worried once it was clear you were out cold. Carried you over as soon as he could."Goku just laughs and smiles, but you can't help but blush at that.>A. Hide your face hide your face hide your face!>B. Wait... Chuu Lee! How's her fight going?>C. Maple go back to sleep now...>D. Something else?
>the people in this thread>MAXIMUM cringeThe fuck happened to you blokes?

>>42728847You rolled two 1s on the verge of passing out. You don't have enough strength, mentally or physically, to use it.
>>42728885TK works with our mind and shit, mind over matter. Maybe if our brain was knocked around a lot, but our body wouldn't impact our ability to get up.
If Chuu Lee beats Garlic, then hyperbolic time training. Release a year older Chuu Lee on Goku with all her wind magic mastered.Give him a surprise and we a whole lot of student teacher time.
