>You are Maple Son-Mahogany, one of two young Tuffle twins thrown at Earth starting in early Dragon Ball by your "father," Dr. Raichi>"Canon" had already taken a sharp turn from the "norm" when you began, and through your actions, choices, and dialogue, took even further turns from the "norm," and will probably continue to do so>Stats and dice mechanics are used, and can be explained again as needed>Let's all try to have some fun, ok?And a pastebin: http://pastebin.com/mhH3WrHFLast time, on Dragon Ball Tuffle Quest Z! You met with Mark and Videl again, helping Miguel deal with a mysterious illness, met with another world's Kami warning you of an upcoming threat, and you learned how to use the False Moon technique, and now have met another familiar figure...
>>43656168https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=asyO6tonbLQShe walks towards you, hands on her hips. "It's been quite a while since we last met, hasn't it?"You nod, putting your own hands on the back of your neck. "That it has."She gives a sweet smile, then giggles. "And look how far you've come. Married Goku, had a couple kids with him..."You raise an eyebrow, recalling her... initial meeting with you. "If you're about to start something about that 'my Goku' thing, save it. I'm not a kid anymore, I know how I feel.""That you do." she says with a nod. "...but you want to still get stronger, don't you? Why is that? Is it for yourself, is it for Goku, is it for your friends and family?" Her expression becomes a bit more serious. "Do you fear falling behind? Be honest with... yourself.">A. Of course not! I strive to improve for my own sake and the sake of others>B. ...I've had some worries before, but I don't let them bring me down>C. Maybe I have... why do you ask?>D. Something else?
>>43656172>>A. Of course not! I strive to improve for my own sake and the sake of others
>>43656172>D. Something else?It's probably a combination of all three, honestly. But I'd like to think that it's mostly for Goku and everyone else I care about.
>>43656172>A. Of course not! I strive to improve for my own sake and the sake of othersHow's that broken arm treating you, courtesy of best lizard
>>43656172>>A. Of course not! I strive to improve for my own sake and the sake of others>>B. ...I've had some worries before, but I don't let them bring me down
>>43656172>B. ...I have had some worries before, but I haven't let them bring me down.Possibly with power gain to better face what comes next, as that tends to be a concern. We don't want to ever hold those near us back.How're you today, Kato?
>>43656172"Goku and Brobro need someone to make new techniques for them and bounce off of. I'm not as strong as Goku but I challenge him. My magic seems to be better then Acer's but his swordsmanship is better so we balance and learn from one another.""You know as well as I there's always another demon king, space tyrant, or evil thing that is going to attack us. We need to be prepared, we have a unique talent set among our friends and it's very handy. How's the light magic coming along anyway for us?"There are people who depend on me and you working together and being able to stand and protect our family. Is this a Tuffle thing? Talking with our subconscious? Will my children be talking to their subconscious too?"
>>43656297>>43656172Supporting this, it's sensible and fits well with Maple's character. Thougg you'd think Maple would know if the whole talking to your dream self thing was a Tuffle thing what with her implanted knowledge.
>>43656172>B. ...I've had some worries before, but I don't let them bring me downWe've got nothing to hide, least of all worries that motivate us to push past our limits. The old Maple might have denied it, but we're much more spiritually-powerful than we were back then.
>>43656172>C."I think it'd best if I practiced what I've got with Krillin rather than try to overexert myself in trying to keep up with some barely learned techniques and gimmicky forms."
>>43656446So you want the PC to become unrelevant?
>>43656477I want the PC to practice what she has rather than movesponge some more to make her previous skills and style irrelevant.
>>43656172>>D. Something else?Getting stronger to save us all from Freeza. He gonna kill us if Towa is telling the truth.
>>43656172>A. Of course not! I strive to improve for my own sake and the sake of othersHow is only being surpassed by a legendary being of prophecy falling behind? Who by the way we've won more fights with then we've lost.
>>43656494So you want maple to not be relevant because that's what you are saying. Her previous skills and style isn't going to be irrelevant. We kind of need transformations to keep up.
>>43656494Ah. See, what you have in your last post sounds more like fuck the kaio-ken and raio-ten, let us ignore their existence. I could see emphasis on our older moves and improving them more.
>>43656446>I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, >But I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.We should work on the basics, but only to advance our 'barely learned' moves. What select techniques should Maple refine? Something she can use on a quick draw and hits hard.Then we can work more on our other techniques and our super powerful Gimmicki Form. Besides supplying lightning and light magic to all our techniques we should work on our Will O' Wisp and advance our fire magic to the next stage.Also our Spirits Bits can apparently mimic Burning/Shining Finger. I'm all for that upgrade.
>>43656567What about Geist Magnum where if we miss, it recoalesces into a bit before firing at the opponent's back to start? Kinda like it goes from a blast to a bit, but just one shot
>>43656172>A. Of course not! I strive to improve for my own sake and the sake of others>B. ...I've had some worries before, but I don't let them bring me downI'm late as hell,
>>43656543We should practice them until they're old hat to is rather than jumping at the chance to get a new form we won't have experience with.
>>43656615That's kinda nifty. Geist Trickshot.>>43656172>B.
>>43656172"Of course not!" you answer immediately. She gives you an unconvinced look. What? Okay, fine... you think for a moment. "...well, okay, maybe I've had some before, but I haven't let them bring me down. I strive to improve for both my own sake and for those I care about. My family, my friends, everyone. Even if I have doubts, I don't let them control me. I take hold of them and use them to push myself, and everyone else.""Is that so?" she questions, leaning closer.You nod affirmatively. "Goku and brobro need someone to make new techniques for them and bounce off of. I'm not as strong as Goku but I challenge him, make him work harder. He became champ, sure, but I beat him twice before, and I plan to beat him again. My magic seems to be better then Acer's but his swordsmanship is better so we balance and learn from one another. Plus, well, he IS legitimately smarter than me." you admit with a bashful smile. "You know as well as I there's always another demon king, space tyrant, or evil thing that is going to attack us. Towa already warned us about Freeza headed our way eventually. We need to be prepared, and to help everyone us prepare, and we have a unique talent set among our friends. Speaking of, miiiight you have any thoughts on that 'Light Magic' stuff?"She gives a bit of a knowing smirk. "It's not as easy to learn as you think. But some might also be looking into it."...curious. "Say, are you sure you're something brought about through the Ultra Divine Water and Darkness and all that, or is this some kind of Tuffle thing ghost dad never told us about?"She laughs. "You can probably guess the answer to that." Running her fingers through her red hair, she then takes a fighting stance, her eyes giving off a slight glow of yellow. "But if you're so sure of this... show me.">A. Hah, you're on, Shadow Maple!>B. Do I really need to? I mean, if you insist, but...>C. Eh, I'd rather not...>D. Something else?
>>43656615We could try to make the Geist Magnum work like a bullet where it's embedded in an opponent's flesh.
>>43656615I think it'd be cool if it was like Hol Horse's the Emperor where we can make it move however we like.
>>43656699>A. Hah, you're on, Shadow Maple!Lets do it!
>>43656699>A. "Best two out of three make it interesting. Second round with swords, and final round let's use Raio-Ten and go all out. I wanna see what we're both made of."
>>43656699>A. Hah, you're on, Shadow Maple!
>>43656699>D. Sword fight!
>>43656168Woot! maple time!
If we do fight we should charge up Galvanic Phantasm.
>>43656732>>43656699I like it, supporting.
>>43656699>>A. Hah, you're on, Shadow Maple!
>>43656699Supporting >>43656732Hey, will our dice and actions be the same?
All right then, gimme a roll of 1d20, best of five, DC is 14.Health, Ki, and Stamina are in pastebin if people need reference.
Rolled 19 (1d20)>>43656838pls
Rolled 1 (1d20)>>43656838
Rolled 5 (1d20)>>43656838In after Nat 1.
Rolled 16 (1d20)>>43656838We also have the advantage of having our enemies stats as well. Also trying samma vacca would be interesting...
Rolled 17 (1d20)>>43656838
>>43656848>>43656855>>43656861>>43656875>>43656896Well then, writing...
Rolled 10 (1d20)>>43656838
>>43656838Or they could be listed in the post after you finish describing dialogue.
>>43656838Kato, include the HUD.
>>43656914>>43656945Its fine. I'm the one who asked yesterday and dialogue alone should be enough. We can work with it.
What'd happen if we sent our False Moon through an bit amplifier? Would that be a good way to increase the amount of blutz waves?
>>43656987That could work as maybe a pseudo healing wave for saiyans.
Kato, just mention when we're getting low on something.
>>43656975Too bad, people have been asking for a HUD to be included in combat for a while now. You don't decide if something's "fine" for the rest of us.
>>43657008I was also thinking if we put our healing waves through an amplifier gate...super healing?Seriously we should stick everything we can through a gate. Especially our sword.
>>43657026Don't you mean Goku's sword? Or maybe his "Power-Pole"?
>>43657026What happens if we go through a gate while we have the Kaioken or Raioten active?
>>43657039Hey, we're not sticking Acer's sword in our Spirit Gate again, we're married now.
>>43657021Or when we don't have enough energy to do something. Or when don't have enough stamina to do a transformation. That is a lot of detail to write out that could be a lot simpler and streamlined for us so we could make quicker and more informed decisions.
>>43657096i feel like the more game mechanicy we make the fights the worse and more bogged down this is goii g to get. Do we actually have to knock everyone we fight's health to zero to win? How much stamina does a transformation/attack cost? I'd much rather have it be narrative based
>>43656838Are you going to edit our stats in the pastebin in realtime?
>>43657131No, a HUD doesn't make us more bogged down, it speeds us up. So much time spent reading and estimating could be better used planning and determining our next course of action.
>>43657131The fights are a game. They're the only gamey parts about this quest. We should play them like a game.
>>43657162>>43657131>>43657197Look lets save this for the after thread.
>>43656699"Hah, you're on, Shadow Maple!" You take your own stance. "How about best two out of three, make it interesting? Swords or full strength good for the rounds after? I wanna see how much we both can go for."She cracks her knuckles. "We'll see."https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zl74EmI0DxEYou both get a warm-up in, trying for the basics. You manage to counter each other at first, neither landing any decent blows, though you seem to spot an opening soon, and try for a leg-sweep, your other self dodging... and ending up right where you need her to be. You unleash a Machinegun Punch on her, doing decent damage... before she herself manages an Explosive Wave, then a telekinetic stop on you, followed by a kick to your gut. Through the pain, you manage a strong right hook to her jaw, the two of you stepping back."Not bad, not bad... okay, ready for this?" she asks, Spirit Bits out.>A. Spirit Bit battle? Why not!>B. Defend and dodge, make her waste that energy>C. Different strategy, stay close, stay active!>D. Energy attack!>E. Kaio-ken!>F. Raio-ken!>G. Something else?
>>43656975Quit speaking for all of us just because you gave up.>>43657203No, we're getting a HUD for combat, and we're about to do combat, so we're getting a HUD.
>>43657213>G. "Samma Vacca!"Wanna see how much darkness lurks in Maple.
>>43657162adding the hud means we actually have to observe the rules of a game rather to the letter and thus these questions need to be answered Do we actually have to knock everyone we fight's health to zero to win? How much stamina does a transformation/attack cost? Do we know the cost of every attack? I don't and the information doesn't seem readily available
>>43657213>D. Energy attack!Spirit Bits BUT Barrier to defend against hers>C. Different strategy, stay close, stay active!Samma Sankappa then Izumi Combo.
>>43657213>C. Different strategy, stay close, stay active!
>>43657242The Kamehameha costs 3+ Ki to use.
>>43657236Quit being a child. Wait until the after thread.And you wonder why no one takes you seriously or jumps on your ideas.
>>43657213>A. Spirit Bit battle? Why not!>C. Different strategy, stay close, stay active!She's in our mind, i don't think theres any energy to waste
>>43657236Your acting like that troll that pops up in every session, I'ma just ignore you and worry about having this discussion after the thread is done.
>>43657275>3+the fuck does the plus meantoo many rules, its a forum narrative game we should keep it that way,
>>43657279>She's in our mind,>We call up our mental block>Goku pops up next to us and aids us in combat
>>43657301Think it means base Kamehameha is 3 ki, but it's an attack designed with variable yield, so least charge-3 ki, can increase to entire pool if we want.
>>43657301>the fuck does the plus meanReally dude? This is the first I'm hearing of it and I can figure out it's a base 3 Ki to use the attack, plus extra for charge/oomph/whatever.
>>43657213>B. Defend and dodge, make her waste that energy
>>43657213>A. Spirit Bit battle? Why not!>>43657313I like this idea for later.
>>43657334>>43657332See though, since we vote on shit that adds another layer of complexity for voting.We already vote on which attack we use. What if half the thread wants to do kamehameha with 1 charge, and the other half wants to do it with 2 charge. Its adding another level of choice that will bog down the thread. And that's one attack.
1d20, DC 16, best of five.

>>43657420two votes for 1 round of combat. That is literally what I'm saying we shouldn't do. It bogs down the thread and takes more time so less shit happens all so that you can make a narrative game slightly more gamey in the futile need for slightly more "control"

>>43657410>>43657428>>43657432>>43657434What the shit is this
>>43657455Agreed. Instead of bogging the thread down now with a debate, let's talk about this after the thread and see if we can all work out a good system for this.
>>43657410>>43657411>>43657424>>43657428>>43657432...this'll hurt a bit.Writing...
>>43657466Statistically impressive if somewhat terrifying?
>>43657482Actually, all these 1's make total sense, if we assume that they're Shadow Maple's 20's. Why shouldn't she have Tuffle Luck too?
>Eail starting up another quest.I mean its good to act on your inspirations but does anyone else think he is overreaching?
>>43657756What did he start now?
>>43657780a parallel to that sith apprentice quest called Jedi Apprentice quest.
>>43657434>>43657432>>43657428>>43657410Oh god, we're dead and the quest is over.
>>43657213https://youtu.be/25uootu5lTk"Spirit Bit battle? Sure thing!" You prep your own Spirit Bits. Oh what she doesn't know... wait. She's in your mind. So... eh, screw it. You head in close, giving a shout of "Samma Sankappa!" to up your defense, and using your Spirit Bits to add in a Barrier just in case....and as if anticipating your movements, she doesn't waste her shots on your barrier, instead firing a Kamehameha point-blank to get rid of it, and dodging your own attacks gracefully, and waiting for your boosted defenses to drop before unleashing her Spirit Bits on you. The moment before she runs out of ammo, she's already got another six up and ready, and bombarding you again. And she does it again.You finally manage to power through the onslaught and punch her hard in the jaw, sending her back a bit and stopping the Spirit Bit barrage. Gods that hurt... you took a lot of damage from that, if she kept it up a couple more times you'd be forced to yield. Still have plenty of Ki and Stamina though...>A. You're hurt, heal yourself up, quick>B. Raio-ken! Need to be faster!>C. Kaio-ken! Need to be stronger!>D. Raio-Ten! Full power!>E. Stay on the defensive this time, let yourself recover a bit>F. All-out! Not gonna let her keep the upper hand!>G. Energy attack!>H. Something else?
>>43657851>D. Raio-Ten! Full power!Lightning Spirit Bit Support -> Hallowed Rush -> Lightning Phantom Shotgun.
>>43657851>B. Raio-ken! Need to be faster!She's dodging us easily, and we're being pressured. Start out by accelerating, then move into trying out using both our power-ups at once if we get a chance to do so safely.

You start up your Spirit Bits again, adding some Lightning to give them that extra oomph, then try to sense her intentions with the Samma Ditthi. She's... planning much the same you are. Okay, gotta make this count then!As both of your purple auras flare around your bodies, sparks flying, you lunge at one another, Spirit Bits firing. You both carefully dodge the Bits and engage each other, landing blows but neither doing much damage. As the Spirit Bits empty, you attempt for a Hallowed Rush!...and she dodges aside, grabbing your arm by the wrist and elbowing you in the ribs, throwing you to the ground. She starts up the familiar chant. "Kaaa... meee..."Your quickly push yourself up off the ground, attempting to kick where she's floating, but Shadow Maple just dodges aside. You give a shout of "SOLAR FLARE!" to try and blind her, only to realize she's already Clothes Beam'd some sunglasses on herself. She knees you in the gut. "GRHK...!""Haaaaa..."Oh no she doesn't! You quickly charge up some Ki into your fist, add a bit of Lightning, and slam it into HER gut, giving a shout of "PHANTOM SHOTGUN!" Now THAT does the trick, breaking her focus and knocking her to the ground, stunned.>A. You should heal, damage is starting to add up...>B. Recharge your Ki a bit, use this opportunity>C.

>>43658403Okay, you need to take a moment to heal up... but first. "Spirit Bits!" And with a bit of Lightning added, you fly them around her to keep up the pressure. She tries for an Explosive Wave to defend herself, but you hold back the Bits for firing until after it's passed. You then quickly heal yourself up, don't have enough time to get back to full, but you're up past more than half.She's the one feeling the pressure now, and she's still stunned.

>>43659062Tuffle luck is back on your side, instead of your Shadow's, it seems.Writing...
>>43659117You do well, huh huh, you do well....sorry.
>>43658856https://youtu.be/5PqqRZ3yGLgYou've got to take the chance to end this while you can. You dash at her, and with a bit of added Lightning, you go for the Izumi combo... and this time, she's got no real defense against you. You unleash hell on your doppelganger, delivering some powerful palm-strikes to her face and torso. You also go for your Spirit Bits to support your attacks. With her still stunned, you back up a bit to deliver the finishing blow!Sparks flying around you, you lift your hands into the air, and then slam Lightning down on her with a roar of "POLTERGEIST BLITZ!" The powerful thunderclap of the attack is almost deafening as it strikes her. She falls to the ground, clearly beaten, as you fall to your knees yourself, panting. Gods, you're a tough bitch to fight, starting to feel a bit bad for those who've gone against you.You hear your Shadow start laughing. "Hah... hahahaha! Amazing, Maple. D-did you still want best two out of three?">A. Hah, nah, I'm good>B. Sure, sure, let's go after we're rested up>C. Something else?
>>43659404>C. Something else?Ask her what her current levels of Ki, Energy and HP areHeal her until her totals match ours.Then go again immediately.
>>43659404>B. Sure, sure, let's go after we're rested upAs long as it's off-screen. This seems in-character, but I'd rather not have to do the same fight twice.
>>43659404>>43659421This, as long as its off screen.
>>43659404>>B. Sure, sure, let's go after we're rested up
>>43659404>>C. Something else?This is sorta boring, can we move on to the tournament already.
>>43659404>Gods, you're a tough bitch to fightDo I see now why Goku loves me?Also, what happens if we use Telepathy on the shadow, while the shadow uses Telepathy on us? Does our mind become filled with that EEEEEEE feedback noise?
>>43659404>B. Sure, sure, let's go after we're rested up"Raio-Ten and Swords!"
>>43659404I'll back >>43659421That was fun, and it felt appropriately challenging, but don't need a repeat.
>>43659404>>B. Sure, sure, let's go after we're rested upI'll agree with >>43659421No need to redo fight after fight on this.
>>43659468Eh, I'd rather be bored than miss a chance to power up.Later if we fail at $VALUED_IMPORTANT_THING we'll regret it.At least, that assumes that powering up helps us achieve $VALUED_IMPORTANT_THING, and Kato isn't implementing Bethesda-tier level scaling on us to the point where power does not matter.
>>43659516>Bethesda-tier level scalingHey, better than Toriyama level scaling

>>43659692On the plus side, this probably means we fought each other to exhaustion. A win and a tie isn't a bad record.
>>43659692D-did we tie? Like if 16 was needed to beat her then 15...
>>4365970816 was needed to not loseWe got 15 so we lose
>>43659708We burnt ourselves out and lost.
>>43659404You walk over to her and help heal her up, giving a nod. "Sure, but let's recover a bit first." She heals you a bit as well, smiling. "Gods... starting to see why Goku likes me so much, if I'm really that tough a fight." You both laugh at that.Once the both of you are at full strength again, you try for some swordplay. As good as you both are, it seems you're a bit rusty, and you both exhaust yourselves out fighting. You come close to a draw, but you run out of steam first, losing to her. While you consider going one last time, you both decide it's better if you leave it as a draw.Your Shadow sits down next to you. "So... you've proven you have what you need, the resolve to help yourself as much as you wish to help others. Maple... tell me, how do you live your life?""Pardon?" Well that's an odd question.She smiles a bit. She seems to know the answer already, but she seems to want you to say it yourself. "Do you think you live your life ethically, honestly? Or do you not even think about it, and just... live?" ...huh. "What defines how you live your life?">A. Well... I think I do?>B. Never really thought about it before, to be honest>C.

>>43660185My life is at the whims of a bunch of 23 year old neckbeards on the internet with the attention span of an excited puppy, and who constantly bicker over largely-irrelevant matters. HELP ME!
>>43660185>E. Gettin' paid and laid, duhhh
>>43660290Supporting this for the write-in, and adding>D. Helping others, I'd say"When it comes to helping somebody out, though, I just...do. I don't really think about it, to be honest. It just seems natural. I know my friends would do the same for me if they could, so why shouldn't I? That's what I think."
>>43660330Eh we aren't a monk. Our purpose up until this point has not been to enlighten people. Trip pls go.
>>43660338>Twenty-four year old neckbeard*FTFY
>>43660185>>C. Friends and family define my life>>D. Helping others, I'd say
>>43660360We've taught people new techniques.We showed Piccolo and Raditz that another side of life is possible. Thusly we help to 'enlighten' them.Just like how I'm teaching you what to 'enlighten' means. Trip stays and so does her Bhudda Magic.
>>43660185Q. Kato, how do YOU think Maple lives her life?Being a good motherBeing a good wifeBeing a good sisterBeing a good sparring partnerBeing a good teacherBeing a good capsulecorp engineerBeing a good protector of the planetSeems she lives quite a lot of lives.
>>43660267>>43660332>>43660354>>43660395You stop that. We have Goku.
>>43660385But thats not our purpose in life. It never has been. Piccolo and Raditz were happy series of events but it was never our objective.The moment you start making it an objective you become preachy and start forcing things.
>>43660409And five million zeni. That's mad money yo.
>>43660185>C. Friends and family define my life>D. Helping others, I'd say
>>43660185>A.>B.>E. Basically I listen to everything Ghost Dad says and then I do the opposite. Y'know, I'm really glad we found Turtle Dad before I became an awkward teenager. Otherwise, we mighta gone through that awkward goth phase.
>>43660185>D. Helping others, I'd say>E. For money
>>43660417No, Maple your goddamn purpose to fucking KILL THE MONEY. NOT FUCK IT!
>>43660420>Cash: 104,900,000 ZenniWe HAVE cash money and a monkey boy. We good.
>>43660185>E. money money money money money money money
>>43660458And unless there's a galactic bank where we can exchange it's useless off world.
>>43660498We live on Earth though. It's our home.
>>43660497maple needs money for colege
>>43660185>E. Cold, hard cash, and big, hard mmph...
>>43660548The more you samefag the more I repeat we have a Goku and hella cash money. We good.
>>43660568He's messing around anon. No harm.
>>43660568>we have a Goku and hella cash money.Even if we didn't, we're friends with Bulma. She has so much goddamn money, she doesn't give a shit.
Please don't include the money and monkey dick option, even as a joke.
>>43660568Our exchanges with others and our monkeyboy define how we live our life tho

>>43660643Why? It got a lot of votes, and write-ins are encouraged, don'cha know?
>>43660498Trade it for Oil and sell the Oil offworld. Oil is a scare resource in space, and it's used to create plastics, which are useful in any situation where weight-to-strength ratio is a concern, such as in space.Or if the spacers have some kind of Space Oil or something, sell Bauxite. Earth is unusually abundant in Aluminium.

>>43660872Its not going in. He's fucking with you. Think about the QM you have here.
>>43660775The idea that it may be an option bothers me less than the smarmy smug from this post.
>>43660899The QM that throws multiple options in all the time?

ITT: /tg/ gets [TRIGGERED]Apparently the meaning in Maple's life is to babysit the voices in her head and try to keep them calm. It's not always easy.In other newsKato, cater exclusively to me please. =D
>>43660912Anon look me hard in the reaction image and tell you think Kato is going to include a shitpost option obviously samefagged into a moment that defines our character. Really? Stop worrying.
Maple's entire life philosophy is going to be 'I liek swords' at this rate....Hm. Think we can kill Frieza with the Armoire of Invincibility
>>43660947>'I liek swords'I know one anon who would like that.
>>43660933I think that it's entirely possible Kato would include a shitpost option obviously samefagged into a moment that defines our character.
>>43660933Oh, you think this is going to define our character? It's just pretty words, not actions we take.
>>43660947We'd have to find the Cave of No Return, first.
>>43660933SHITPOST SPEECH IS FREE SPEECHI can't realistically support monkey dick and money though. Maple is not a nu-age millenial prostitute girl struggling to balance twerking and getting drunk.Having children and ensuring her children get a good life? Totally. I can see Maple supporting that.But you can't simplify that to dick and dollars.
>>43660968Nothing about those words is remotely pretty.
>>43660979Pic related is the way to the cave of no return
>>43660899Well, she did rein in the legendary sleazeball Master Roshi because she put him in "Dad Mode," she might be very conservative about lots of things.
>>43660957I AM THAT ONE ANON. Do you think I'd keep my name up? People will rage and sperg about it.
>>43660185You look upwards blankly. "...never really thought about it before, to be honest. I always took it one day at a time doing what I thought was right. But I'd have to say... of all things, friends and family define my life. I have no idea where I'd be without them. Helping each other, pushing each other to be more. Growing up with them made me the person I am today."She smiles. "Is that all?"You think again. "...no, it's not. Helping others too, maybe not as directly, but it's a big part of it. I just... I dunno, I don't really think, I just... DO. It just seems natural. I know my friends would do the same for me if they could, so why shouldn't I? I mean, there's Raditz, and Piccolo... hell, Tien and Chiaotzu too, I helped them and showed them what they could be. Because it felt... right." You then stick your tongue out. "What, did you think I'd go with something dumb, like 'cash money?' Or something else dumb?"She laughs and stands, pointing you to a... door. With a hat on it. "Good. You probably can figure out the next part."You feel something... you hear words. Yeah, you can figure it out. "Samma... Ajiva." The hat turns gold. "...yeah. Right Livelihood."She grins wide, opening the door. "Correct. Good luck out there, Maple. Oh, andifyouseeanyspacelizardspunchtheminthearm.""What?"Before she answers, you wake up. Your arms tight around Goku, monkey boy still sleeping. Heh. You slowly let go, getting up. Well... that was interesting. Well, Tournament's just a few weeks away. How should you spend your day?>A. Wanna check up on Yamcha and Pantea again, see how they're preparing>B. You know... maybe a family picnic with brobro and Chi-chi, it'd be nice>C. Maybe check in with Trip, ask her about this>D. Something else?
>>43660985Hey now, our life isn't just money and monkey dick, we've got a lot of things motivating us, including those.
>>43661025Kato is not political one way or another.I don't see her as the type of person to wave a gay pride flag to piss off conservatives, nor as the type to wave a conservative flag to piss off gay priders, nor the type to wave a nazi flag in one hand and a feminist flag in the other to offend absolutely everyone.
>>43661057>>B. You know... maybe a family picnic with brobro and Chi-chi, it'd be nice

>>43661119Maybe I'm retarded but I don't get the joke. Mostly because "space lizard" doesn't narrow thing down too much in dbz.

>>43661586Damn, that's a good proof.
>>43661380I sleep in a big bed with my wife.I asked her if we could get one of those and she laughed and shook her head. That means yes, right?
>>43661586This is a shit proof because the second you have the subtraction it just goes to zero, you nimwit.
>>43661627Get 2 single beds and push them together. Yours can be the Autobot bed. Hers can be the ... I dunno. Sailor moon bed.

>>43661627Is there Dragon magic as a possibility?
>>43661627You each get one set of novelty bedsheets. Yours are transformers, hers are princesses or something.
>>43661903Only if there's fairy magic.
>>43661926What if Waifu likes Decepticons?
>>43661934>>43661903Dude I want High energy physics magic. Gamma rays and small energetic particles. It'd be so rad.
>>43661662>>43661926She says she wants a Lina Inverse one.Also gimme a bit, folks, helping her cook dinner.
>>43661484>Not catering to someone = Calling their suggestion dumbNot that samefag isn't a samefag though
>>43661985Just get Goku to do it
>>43661985Sounds like she's got good taste.
>>43661985Commission a nice big transformers/slayers crossover pic and get it custom printed onto a comforter.
>>43661057Eh, why not? Have a little family picnic, with brobro and Chi-chi and Izumi, in the forest near where you live. Peppa and Gohan play with their cousin a bit, running through the grass, as you tell your family about what you've just gotten. You're a bit surprised to learn that... Chi-chi already learned the skill, but was hoping to keep it a secret between her and Acer until the Tournament. According to her, Trip told her that it's a bit harder to "maintain" than the others, that one must truly keep to the "right livelihood" or else they will lose the skill and have to rethink things. Furthermore, the ability itself is interesting. It's something less, able to better "support" others with your own skills. It's quite interesting, really.Your brother and your husband talk about some ideas they've been having, new techniques and how to properly use them. Goku seems to have come across a really good one, but it takes a lot out of him, even as a Super Saiyan. Your brother meanwhile mentions that he's been helping Pantea and Yamcha, and that the two of them have some surprises in store.After lunch, you all notice the kids go a little quieter than you're used to. A scan around shows them with some kind of animal... wait, a dragon? Izumi stares at it gleefully. "Mah! Pah! Kee?"Acer and Chi-chi look at each other as the kids play with the thing. "...I mean, come on, it likes her.""It's a dragon." Chi-chi tells him flatly.It coos playfully, Gohan approaching it and patting it on the head. Peppa tries to chase its tail as Izumi hops on its back, hugging the animal. She then sits up, pointing a stick in the air. "Fwah!"The dragon flaps its wings and moves up off the ground, though not going too high as Chi-chi glares at it. She crosses her arms, glancing at you and Goku. "What do you two think?"Goku shrugs and looks at you.>A. It's adorable! Keep it, Chi-chi!>B. Eh, probably shouldn't>C. Your decision, you'll make the right choice>D. Something else?
>>43662130>A. It's adorable! Keep it, Chi-chi!>outta the frypan and into the dragon
>>43662130>C. Your decision, you'll make the right choice"Groucho has been really good with the kids though and he is a full grown tiger. This little guy seems good with them too."
>>43662130>>A. It's adorable! Keep it, Chi-chi!
>>43662130>It's something lessshould be "something less active"Bah
>>43662130>A, and even if you don't, I might see if it will live with us, since Peppa and Gohan seem to like it too.
>>43662130I have been meaning to ask Kato but couldn't we enchant Goku's and our kid's clothes to grow and shrink with them? That way their clothes won't rip apart when they become Oozaru
>>43662130>A. It's adorable! Keep it, Chi-chi
>>43662382Pretty sure Izumi's blonde
>>43662382She's blonde anon. No matter how hard you deny it to yourself or how many color edits you do.
>>43662414>>43662420That one looks pretty similar to Acer though, and the woman's hair color in dragon ball is dominant.
>>43662487You only have proof of that with Bulma. Everyone else has black hair in canon.She's blonde man, stop living in denial, its not healthy.
>>43662532Okay, go out and find any blonde character that'll be a cool look for Izumi when she's older. Bear in mind, Kato's already said No to Marisa.
>>43662382Nah, if she's getting Icarus, she should look more like...
>>43662487Are Peppa and Gohan redheads?
>>43662560I'll pass, its not my job. Its not yours either. I'll leave it to Kato.
>>43662576Gohan is, Peppa isn't.
>>43662576Gohan's a redhead.
>>43662576Gohan is. Peppa isn't as far as I know.
>>43662420No, I think my efforts won't be wasted.
>>43662645A river in Egypt anon. Whatever.
>>43662657Hard work works. Plus, I think Roto's cool reference for Izumi.
>>43662676This isn't hard work. This is spamming and shitting up the thread.
>>43662694It's after the bump limit, we can talk about whatever we want so long as it's about something related to the quest.
Hey, what if Gohan had yellow eyes and Izumi had red eyes?
>>43662130"It's adorable, Chi-chi! I mean... look at it!" The dragon lands at Chi-chi's feet, Izumi hugging the thing tight. Aww... "I mean, if you don't want it, we can probably have it live with is. Groucho already gets along with Peppa and Gohan, and they seem to like this little fella." Well, "little" is a bit of a relative term, the thing's almost as big as you.Chi-chi sighs. "Fine, fine..." Her daughter nearly screams with joy, the dragon doing a little dance. Heh, guess it likes attention."What're you gonna call it?" Goku questions, walking over to the thing.Acer scratches his head. "How about... Char?""Hrroh." the thing mumbles in displeasure."Yeah, not red enough." your brother laughs. "Okay... how about... Hiyah?"...the hell kind of name is that? The dragon seems a bit apathetic."Icarus?" Chi-chi suggests. The dragon seems to like that one. "All right, Icarus it is.""Ikawus!" Izumi repeats happily, holding tight as the animal lets out a soft cooing sound. Aww...With that day done, next up...>A. Have to talk with Raditz about getting handing over Vegeta and Nappa to the Galactic Patrol>B. Might wanna check in with Yamcha and Pantea>C. Something else?
>>43662934>A. Have to talk with Raditz about getting handing over Vegeta and Nappa to the Galactic Patrol

>>43662934>B. See Yamcha and Pantea.
>>43662934What, we have to keep it at our place because of one anon's suggestion? Even moneydick got more support.
>>43663074Can u even read?
>>43662934>B. Might wanna check in with Yamcha and Pantea>C. Drop Icarus off at the Mt. Frypan estate, we're not cleaning up after him.
>>43663113>>43663074Try reading. ChiChi and Acer are taking him
>>43663074Chi-chi and Acer took him, anon. Read carefully.
>>43663107>>43663131You two can't read."I mean, if you don't want it, we can probably have it live with us. Groucho already gets along with Peppa and Gohan, and they seem to like this little fella.">>43663139>Chi-chi sighs. "Fine, fine..."This was after we offered to let it "stay with is."
>>43663139Write carefully. You never explicitly said they took him until now.
>>43663168Chi-chi is agreeing to take it.
>>43663185True, but context clues anon. Why would Izumi jump for joy if we were taking him. Come on man, they teach this shit in even shitty public high schools
>>43663236You say that like he wouldn't be bitching and moaning even if Kato had explicitly said "Icarus is going with Chi-chi and Acer" in the post.
>>43663236Because we would be keeping him for her. It's like when you can't have a cat at your place, so your friend takes care of it because they own a lot of pets.
>>43663236This is saltyanon. He always finds something to be salty and bitch about.
>>43663185And yet only two people were stupid enough to get it wrong.
>>43663236I don't see why the post needs to be confusing by including write-ins that didn't have support.
>>43663264Notice also how neither we, Goku nor our children got to name it. Acer and Chichi were naming it. Its quite clearly implied heavily in the post that their daughter is overjoyed at getting a new pet and they're naming their new pet. By all rational logic, you should have assumed that Acer and Chichi were taking them. You're just not very smart.
>>43663264She's one. I seriously doubt she's currently able to differentiate between "I can't have this" and "This is mine, but someone else is keeping it for me."You were wrong, and now you're scrambling to find reasons to pretend you weren't. Just let it go. Your life will go on.
>>43663301We offered to take care of it in order to convince Chi-chi to let her daughter become the owner of Icarus, and Chi-chi said "Fine, fine." My logic doesn't have to make any jumps.
>>43663336You're like those autists that didn't get the Bane/CIA conversation.
>>43663336>My logic doesn't have to make any jumps.But you're going above and beyond the call of duty anyway!
>>43663335Kato was wrong to make her post intentionally be confusing by not telling us what happened up front and just using unclear dialogue. Speaking of which, we should totally have a HUD for combat.
>>43663386Yup troll confirmed. I wish you would fucking leave and stay gone.First you bitched about the name. Then you bitched about something else and now you bitching about icarus and and keep harping about the whole hud idea as if it's the best thing ever.
>>43663386>intentionally be confusingYou were the one confused.Because you're stupid.I bet you chose [Glass him]
>>43663386I love the implication that Kato just sat there wringing her hands and cackling as she wondered how best to obfuscate her meaning in that last post.
>>43663450More like she didn't want to offend the two anons who wrote write-ins because she's way too nice.
>>43663471Yeah that sounds more likely. Some times being nice and indulging them only encourages them to be more of an annoyance.
>>43663386>>43663336This is you. Every goddamn thread.
>>43663492>>43663471There was literally nothing wrong with those write-ins.
>>43663528They didn't have support. Nobody else thought they would be good uses of our time. That's what was wrong with them.
>>43663528No there wasn't. I even liked them. However including them only encouraged more of this bitching and moaning from you.Write in's would get more support if you actually didn't do this every single time you see something you don't like.>>43663547I liked them. I thought they sounded in character.
>>43663547I implicitly supported them by not saying "veto" or "lets not say that".Its dialogue that's in character and evidence that kato lets us make choices, something you bitch about a lot. Because you're an autist. And stupid. And a salty crybaby.
>>43663547That's why they only got an off-hand mention, as have countless other minority write-ins before them. Bitching will change neither anon's proclivity for minor write-ins nor Kato's willingness to include them in that manner.
Do you guys remember when we could have Tuffle Quest without autistic children running about? Ah. Good times.
>>43663362What? Bane was a big guy for him.
>>43663616It was comfy as fuck back then. I mean it still is sometimes but its far far less frequent.
>>43663616Seriously. Can we go back to that? That was nice.
I love salty anon, he gives me an excuse to bully people
>>43663616>>43663658>>43663668Nah, it was always like this.
>>43663621CIA: If i pull this off, will you die?BANE: It will be extemely painful . . .CIA: You're a big guy.BANE: For you.If you're an autist, you interpret the For you to the big guy comment. If you're somebody who isn't mentally challenged, you understand it was a continuation of the previous conversation topic.
>>43663616No other big quests run during the same times.Sunday, starting early?Friday, starting early?So long running quest, high player base now.At the start I made sure to always vote since there was just Kato and 2 other voters, tread might end with 8 IP's total or less.Now? 40 ip's, often 2 threads.Have to live with the issue, especially in a quest that progresses quickly.>>43663668Keep current player count? I wish. I rather have this player number and deal with some people shitposting and salt
>>43662934You and Goku meet with Raditz again, checking up on him. It seems he's been doing good training with Tien, even if it's... a bit difficult for him. The newer students are still a bit less friendly with him than Tien would like, especially the young lady, but the older ones are a bit more friendly. Getting down to the point, though... "The Galactic Patrol has offered to take Vegeta and Nappa into captivity after we defeat them. This means keeping them alive long enough for the Galactic Patrol to arrive. Are... you willing to go along with that?"The Saiyan man crosses his arms, a conflicted look on his face. You can tell he really does want to end both Vegeta and Nappa even without reading his mind. And yet... there are some thoughts that are entertaining the alternatives. "...it would deal a powerful blow to their pride, Vegeta's especially, if they didn't die in battle after being beaten so badly. Hah, Vegeta, beaten by a Tuffle, and only shown mercy after that..." He seems way too amused by that thought. "...I will try my best to keep Nappa alive as I fight him. However, I request that you let me, and me alone face Nappa. No one will interfere with our battle.">A. Sounds good, we know you'll be able to>B. What if you need help?>C. Ask him some things about training>D. Ask him if he's managed to strengthen his tail>E. Something else?
>>43663705B won I'm pretty sure there Kato. Don't retcon, but be aware.
>>43663690I was part of the crowd from the single digit threads, and can't handle all these new people with their shit taste.
>>43663705>>A. Sounds good, we know you'll be able to
>>43663705"Do you have something against him in particular? i would have expected you to want Vegeta himself."
>>43663705E We will with the condition that if it looks like you won't win or are going to die we will intervene. I don't have to much family that I can afford to even lose one.
>>43663705>>C. Ask him some things about training>>D. Ask him if he's managed to strengthen his tailGIT GUD RADDITZ
>>43663705>A. Sounds good, we know you'll be able toRaditz is about as strong as Canon!Piccolo right now...
>>43663681...Where the hell is that pic even from?
>>43663705>A. Sounds good, we know you'll be able to>C. Ask him some things about training"Learn any of the Crane techniques?"
>>43663705>A. Sounds good, we know you'll be able to>B. What if you need help?Just to be clear. Help will only come if Raditz is in imminent danger and there is no chance left of him winning.
>>43663724Apologies, guess I miscounted when I started writing.We'll start with that next thread, okay?
>>43663705>A. Sounds good, we know you'll be able toWe'll jump in if he loses, but honoring the "This guy's mine" thing is a DBZ staple.
>>43663778Eh, I'd rather get to the tournament and I'm the faggot who complained. Your call tho, buddy!
>>43663778No problem, Kato.
>>43663755Why do you wanna know, anon?
>>43663778You could say that you're Writing after about 10 minutes or so and cut off the voting there.
>>43663732I am happy to say I was here at the start. I do like the fact that we got male/female siblings instead of straight twins.Amazing that we are over 60 sessions so far though, even more threads as Kato labels them .5, not a second thread.6 months. 87 threads.
>>43663819I want the context if anything
>>43663868>straight twinsOne of them, maybe
>>43663819Because I hate my sense of morbid curiosity some days and it was going to lead me to ask either that, or why you even have that. So I chose the likely less painful question.
>>43663873>>43663898I'm afraid to say I don't know the context! But thetenk might, I got it from him.
Seriously why the fuck do you act like this? Is it that hard to just attempt to get along with people?
>>43663976It is when people don't get along with me.
>>43664021And there's your problem. Realize that you don't always have to be right and get your way. This is a community story.
>>43664021You ever think there's a reason people don't get along with you or is it all their fault?
>>43664036Ha, the last time I got my way was when I suggested Alena for our look.
>>43664069Then you should be used to it and stop bitching so much.
>>43664106No, I won't ever give up. Just once more, I might be able to suggest something that everyone goes for. I won't give up on the opportunity to see that again.
>>43664136Well here's some advice: Don't act like a child when you suggest it and when you react to it not going your way.Be an adult and you'll be treated like one.
>>43664164Why am I a child? I never resort to name calling, and I keep trying to convince people of why they're wrong to oppose me and why my suggestions are good to support instead of lashing out at them. Isn't that what adults do?
>>43664203>why they're wrong to oppose meRight there. That encompasses everything wrong with your mentality.
>>43664203Because each time your suggestions don't win or you don't get a way you throw a tantrum like a child. That's why.
>>43664203Not everything is objective and you are not always right. Sometimes you need to admit defeat and fold em.And do not give me that 'But I believe in my cause so much I can't stop' bullshit. Realize there are times where its better to just let go.
>>43664203>>Keep trying to convince people of why they're wrong to oppose me.Here's your problem, right here.This is a quest with multiple paths, and generally none of them are wrong.
>>43664222No see, they actively oppose me. They can just let my suggestions fade away, but they go above and beyond the call of duty by saying shit like "Avan Strash is for faggots" and such.
>>43663690I tend not to vote because I only picked up this quest recently, and don't really feel like I have a good feel for Maple as a Charachter yet.It isn't like Arctus or Bruce where I've been part of the ride the whole time.
>>43664203To expand on >>43664222, everyone has a point, and it isn't a competition. However, if you just keep pushing your point in people's faces and shouting but it should be THIS way, it gets to be viewed in a negative fashion. That, and you have no sense of timing. Also that you may be getting rolled in a bit with the guys who bitched about dresses and names and all that, since you act like them but without the namecalling. All of which hurts your side most.>>43664269Ah, that's a bit different then.
>>43664269Sure they do. And you don't provoke it because you constantly bitch about stuff.
>>43664269I try to show them the good of my suggestions, but they always get it in their mind that they don't like what I'm saying so they won't ever like what I'm saying.
>>43664269Then ignore them. Simple as that. Fade back into the anon cloud and come up with another suggestion when you feel appropriate.
>>43664269The thing is, people try to let your suggestions fade away. Every single time, they try to. But you just don't let it go, until eventually people get fed up, and that's the point when they start telling you to stop.
>>43664312>>43664316But suggestions are like plants, I have to keep nurturing them I want them to bloom.
>>43663705You nod in agreement. "Sounds good, Raditz. We won't interfere in your battle, though we'd like to prevent you from dying, at least." Raditz almost grunts in protest, but... seems to understand why you said that. He doesn't LIKE it, but he knows he can't really disagree with it, especially with the look Goku is giving him. "Though... why against Nappa? It sounds more like Vegeta would be your big concern.""I'm being realistic here. I know I'll be able to best Nappa, I doubt I'll be able to challenge Vegeta. Besides, you challenged Vegeta yourself, Maple." Raditz states plainly. "As a warrior, I think you have some idea on what I'm talking about.""Yeah." Okay, got that cleared. "So, learn a few tricks in the Crane School?""Perhaps I have." Raditz says with a bit of a smirk. "I'll say that I've learned the Solar Flare. Useful skill. Other than that, well... you'll have to see for yourself.""Can't wait, brobro!" Goku comments.Ah, that reminds you... "Say, have you managed to strengthen your tail, like Goku?"For once Raditz almost seems... embarrassed? "...not completely.""Well, I've got some secrets!" Goku tells him with a wide grin. "First, we're gonna need to find some monkeys, though..."https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d8c_-Ctr9AU>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST Z #8 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 canAnd that's it for tonight, folks. I'll be around for a while to answer questions and such. did y'all have fun?
>>43664305Your anon, it's not people holding something against you, it's you being wrong and holding on to shit to long.
>>43664331>>43664305No you dont.And you don't always have to get the last word in.
>>43664334Thanks for the run Kato.Still a chance to take another crack at Raio-ten + Kaio-ken before the Tourney?>>43664331Sorry anon, but they really aren't. The harder you push, the more people will push back.
>>43664334Thanks for the run, Kato. I had fun. I'm looking forward to seeing how the fight against the Saiyans goes without some of our heavy hitters. I like that you're giving one of our second-stringers a chance to do stuff.
>>43664334>Besides, you challenged Vegeta yourself, Maple."You know, we never actually did that.>"Here are some coordinates. Meet us here when you can. We'll be waiting."were our words.
>>43664334Thank you very much for the run, Kato.
>>43664405That sounds like an implied challenge given the nature of the conversation leading up to it.
>>43664423You know what they say about implications though!>ur a faget
>>43664383I think we are only missing Goku, Piccolo, Krillin, and the students.We still got plenty of heavy hitters for Vegeta and mystery babysitter.
>>43664334Thanks for running, Kato. See you next session!Are Veggie and Nappa en route to Earth via spacepods right now?
>>43664405Well, we also said>"...then we'll make this an official challenge."And then we said our name. But before that, we did say we trained Chuu Lee, so we could have our students fight Vegeta.
>>43664377>And you don't always have to get the last word in.Oh, but you do?>>43664347Or this environment that's outright hostile to any ideas they don't support.
>>43664522>Or this environment that's outright hostile to any ideas they don't support.If that's how you feel, maybe you should leave. You're clearly not enjoying yourself.
>>43664334Hey, is there a significant difference between fighters with a 1000 PL gap even with the PLs are above 10000?
>>43664522We are outright hostile to ideas that we shot down but then are repeatedly shoved in our face after they'd already been shot down.
>>43664496Wait though. Isn't Chuu Lee going with Goku on that trip?
>>43664547Wow, you didn't agree with what I was saying, so you told me to leave.
>>43664567You don't have the authority to shoot down ideas.
>>43664556As far as I know, Toriyama did say something along the lines of percentage being more meaningful than pure numbers as far as PL goes.But Maple has been shown to be able to go toe-to-toe with people who were 30-50% stronger than her in terms of PL, even if they had similar skill.
>>43664578No, I was saying that if you feel we're unfairly hostile toward you, then maybe you should leave and save yourself the headache of dealing with us.But you can interpret it however you want to, I suppose.
>>43664578You can stay, but you have to adopt a name so we can filter you.
>>43664334HUDs. I think we should have one for combat for simplicity's sake.
>>43664604Do you even listen to yourself. Majority rules your idea is not good. It should end there, but when you shove it our faces after thats been established THEN we shit on you.
>>43664620How do you like this one?
>>43664604You tend to shoot down your own ideas by acting like a shithead.
>>43664379>>43664383>>43664389>>43664410>>43664465>>43664471Thanks for playing!You can try that, and it'll come up next thread.Vegeta and Nappa are on their way, along with someone else. They didn't go to the bug planet.>>43664405You basically did. Vegeta's going to be after you specifically, as well as Acer.>>43664556For now, no. It'll change a bit as things get stronger and stronger.>>43664630Did anyone need it for this fight, or did y'all feel dialogue was clear enough?
>>43664630Nah, she worked it well with the dialogue this time around so I am willing to not use a HUD to keep this from being too gamey.
>>43664638>Majority rules>Extremely vocal personsTomayto, Tomahto. We won't know for sure until we have an official vote.
>>43664667>Did anyone need it for this fight, or did y'all feel dialogue was clear enough?It seemed clear enough to me. I appreciate you asking, though.
>>43664667I thought the fight was fine as is.
>>43664667No HUD Kato, everything has worked out so far.
>>43664667>Did anyone need it for this fight, or did y'all feel dialogue was clear enough?Nah like I said >>43664674 here, you stepped up your game in giving us an idea during the dialogue so its all good.
>>43664667I felt it was clear enough.Also, you know what we really need? To get Maple and Acer laser swords.
>>43664679Once again. A river in Egypt.
>>43664679And in your own words, none of your ideas have won since Alena was chosen as our look.So yes, the majority has shot down your ideas consistently.
>>43664679And then, when that doesn't go your way, you'll complain about that, too.
>>43664704A laser sword probably wouldn't be really useful. Creating a stable blade out of Ki probably scales better.However, creating some sort of melee weapon by blending super science with some certain legendary swordsmiths and possibly some magically inclined people might create something wonderful.
BTW dude>>43664136>>43664203You sound like you are about 14 in these two posts. You make it sound like you need to have that feeling again. And the "those who disagree with me are wrong" attitude will not win anyone to your side.
>>43664667Hey Kato, since we leveled up twice can we up our Spirit Bit count to 8 and 10 respectively? Or maybe more if you are willing, not sure how you want to increment it.
>>43664667>Did anyone need it for this fight, or did y'all feel dialogue was clear enough?Well, your hints at the end of the posts felt like backseat driving, so I'd really prefer a HUD.>>43664674You don't play this quest like a game?
>>43664734No, I've repeatedly said I'd be fine with losing fairly.
>>43664766>You don't play this quest like a game?Not really. During combat I make plans that go with the current situation, but I am not crunching numbers or anything.
>>43664782Then I have good news for you.
>>43664755I was hoping for a shit storm just like there was in SAQ.
>>43664782Which you did, and look, here we are, 50 posts of whiny bullshit later.
>>43664792Games are fun, anon. Are you not here to play a traditional game?
>>43664667I want one, but it's not necessary. I just like to keep tabs on exactly how many resources we have left. If it's too much hassle, you don't need to bother with it.
>>43664756He's just mad jelly of Katohttp://ask.fm/QMKato/answer/133915030698
>>43664809What did I lose?
>>43664682>>43664686>>43664687>>43664698>>43664704>>43664824All right, looks like that was enough. Understand why people asked for it, but kinda was hoping that the pastebin stats and dialogue would give enough of a reference for y'all.>Laser swordsOnly if Krillin gets one.>>43664766Sorry anon, seems most don't need it.>>43664759You can get them up to 10 if you train for it.
>>43664829I should screenshot that into a .jpg
>>43664863Most people don't need a scouter, and we still have one. Give us a HUD.
>>43664885Hey, that's a good point, why don't we configure our scouter to where it displays our stats?
>>43664863>You can get them up to 10 if you train for it.Think there is enough time to get them and Raio-ten + Kaio-ken or is that over reaching a bit much.>>43664885SEE! You are doing it! You LOST right here and now, but still you persist. This is why people get mad at you.
>>43664885>No, I've repeatedly said I'd be fine with losing fairly.You fucking liar.
>>43664885Your Scouter functions as a Dragon Radar and can detect Ki signatures from inorganic beings.>>43664905There should be. After that, Tournament, I promise.
>>43664931Okay, not "Ki signatures" but they can display their approximate Power Levels.
>>43664905>>43664926That's not me. HUDanon is just salty about HUDs for some reason.
>>43664931>Your Scouter functions as a Dragon Radar and can detect Ki signatures from inorganic beings.It could also display our stats if we mess with it some.>>43664905>>43664926I haven't lost. What, you think quantity beats quality when Kato asks our opinions? I think not.
>>43665008>quantity over qualityYes, because it is majority rules.also>implying your opinions are quality
>>43664931>There should be. After that, Tournament, I promise.Cool. See we don't tell people that we've reached up to 10 bits and we can hide or pull out the extra 4 when they least expect it!I have an idea...for another function but I don't know if its any good.Essentially for every 2 spirit bits we have they combine into a 'shell' around our fists making them mini-Phantom shotguns. Basically I am imagining pulling off stuff that Yang from RWBY does in short bursts. 10 Bits = 5 shots or shells. Basically the idea is to get even more damage our melee attacks without resorting to using another technique. Thoughts? Yay? Nay?
>>43665008Holy shit. This delusion. Hey watch this.>>43664931Hey Kato, Izumi is confirmed blonde right? We established that a few threads ago correct?
>>43665065>We established that a few threads ago correct?No, I checked. It's whatever we want at this point.
>>43665093River. In. Egypt.
>>43664863A HUD is like our scouter. We don't really need a scouter at this point when we have other things that can do the same tasks, but a Scouter is still really handy for some people. Although there may be little reason to have a HUD, there's no reason we shouldn't have a HUD.
>>43665048So amplification of melee capability? Could be useful, though maybe asking too much for the phantom shotgun part. Although...Kato, you said that Hercule hits harder than his PL would imply in melee, right? Specifically that he puts all that ki energy other fighters would put into energy attacks into buffing his melee hits, right?
>>43665123Can't Piccolo and Kami both find the androids with their super hearing?
>>43665008>>43665123Seems most players don't want that, anon. Sorry.>>43665048Perhaps, if anyone is on-board with such a thing.Or, like >>43664755 points out you could try to work on a "Ki sword" of some sort. You've technically seen one in action already.>>43665174More or less. Energy attacks are his dump stat, basically, and he's learned to just use what energy he has to hit that much harder. He can use Ki blasts, but he doesn't really want to most of the time.>>43665065I'll say that it works the easiest for everything, even with one anon's work. Sorry. How many object to this?
>>43665236>I'll say that it works the easiest for everything, even with one anon's work. Sorry. How many object to this?All good.
>>43665236Oh wow, that's a great picture for her
>>43665236I think Roto's more fitting and has plenty of images to work with.
>>43665236That picture is great!
>>43665236>Perhaps, if anyone is on-board with such a thing.Just a thought. Basically I looked athttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7uBPAmZZhnQ&t=18m20s this and tried to think of way to work it into Tuffle. If you have a better suggestion based on the video I am all ears.>I'll say that it works the easiest for everything, even with one anon's work. Sorry. How many object to this?I thought she was blonde all this time anyways so its good for me. Also thats a great pic.
>>43665236I think it is a nice picture.
>>43665236>Seems most players don't want that, anon.Most players don't need that, it doesn't mean they're opposed to having a HUD.Hey, if you're opposed to having a HUD, reply to this post saying so to make me look like the biggest fool!
>>43665322I'm opposed to having a HUD. You are the biggest fool who is grasping at straws when we already agreed not to have one.
>>43665236>>43665276Looks more like Acer's kid.
>>43665322Seriously just stop anon.
>>43665322I'm opposed to having a HUD.
>>43665322Opposed. I'd rather work with the narrative.
>>43665253>>43665263>>43665282>>43665308>>43665309It's just one idea, it will be quite a while before she's old enough to use such a thing.She'll be looking like this for most of the time which in canon would be the Androids shenanigans. Maybe up to Buu.>>43665276>>43665347Well, again, it'll be quite a while before she's that old.>>43665322Sorry anon.
>>43665236>>43665411Kato, please don't throw my hours of work in the recycle bin.
>>43665411How long until the Sayins arrive?
>>43665411That has the same hair and eye color as >>43665236 , which is like saying all Aryans look the same.
>>43665411Hey Kato does a 10 sided Amplify Gate give more output than a 6 sided one? Could we have a 6 sided Amp Gate and a 4 sided 2D shield up at the same time?Might be a bit on the micromanagement side but there are some plays there if so.
>>43665470Of course...its the same person, just one is younger and one is grown up.
>>43665491They aren't the same people. One is from Dragon Quest V and the other from Dragon Quest X.
>>43665236If the whole thing's cool with you then, I'd vote for the melee spirit bit idea. Also for enhancing our bit ability.
>>43665427I know, I know, I'm sorry... I mean, if y'all want her to have black hair, just say so, but it seems like most would prefer blonde...>>43665470Er, well, yes. Was kind of why I picked that as a potential older reference.>>43665438November, so still some time before they land.>>43665476It does, but not as much as you'd think.You could.
>>43664863Shit, give Krillin two laser swords.In fact, we should make laser swords standard issue for the ESDF. I mean, even if they're useless because anyone worth their salt can deflect ki, it gives it a ceremonial purpose. Making it more than just a light rod. Kind of like... a ceremonial light-rod, if you will.
>>43665536Ah, have another version, there are artifacts on the top of that one.
>>43665550>anyone worth their salt can deflect kiTell that to Friezas tail.
>>43665536Kato for the 'Melee Amplify' thing I've been throwing around. Do you think the 'shells' idea is okay or would just an all around buff like...'Ki fists' or something be better?Also just keep Izumi blonde. Like confirm that shit for everyone's sakes.
>>43665536Keep her blonde. I like the idea of having a multitude of hair colors.
>>43665615>>43665646No, black hair with yellow eyes looks cooler than yellow hair and black eyes.
>>43665536Peppa has black hair. Izumi has blonde hair. Gohan has red hair. I like the variation in the next generation. Keep it that way don't pay attention to the guy who insists Izumi should be black haired. Just re use his shit for Peppa or scrap it.
>>43665651Thats your opinion man. I disagree.
>>43665550>Shit, give Krillin two laser swords.Only if Piccolo gets three.>>43665529I'll make sure that's an option, then.>>43665584All right anon, but again, most seem to prefer the blonde.>>43665615>>43665646>>43665653Like so.And I'll have to think on that.Speaking of kids, I kinda am planning on your "Gohan" looking like this, for the Androids and such. This okay?
>>43665683Just use pictures of Chrono.
>>43665665Well I worked towards making it a reality, what do you have to show for disagreeing? You wanna put me and my hard work down beneath your foot and squash everything?
>>43665683>I kinda am planning on your "Gohan" looking like this, for the Androids and such. This okay?Works for me. You're using Crono when he gets older or did you change up?
>>43665683Crono Sprites + Soft-spoken Manners
>>43665688>>43665705Planning on those being for around the Buu arc. Post """Cell""" (which probably won't be Cell, but around that timeframe).And maybe for something else, depending on how things go for you.
>>43665729>And maybe for something else, depending on how things go for you.Man I have no idea how you are going to handle time craziness but I'm looking forward to finding out.
>>43665646I like the idea of having a multitude of eye colors. There's blue, sometimes red, black, black, black, and black-white to be found in the whole of dragon ball.
>>43665683Will we get an accidental detour from Trunks? I think him finding himself in a reality where nothing in history went even remotely how he was taught would be funny.
>>43665688It's King of the Titans, not Father Time.
Earth Special Forces:AcerChichiGokuMaplePiccoloRaditzKrillinTienChiaotzuChuu LeeLapisLazuliYamchaLaunchEarth Defense Force:BulmaMaster RoshiTrip KamiKorinBabaYajirobeKing ChappaMark SatanSo this is what I'm thinking. Earth Special Forces are the ones who are expected to head out and fight on distant worlds if that is what is required. Anyone in the Earth Defense Force specifically only plays defense. So like, two major groups. Any thoughts, complaints or ideas?
>>43665653No, we're using Pan for Peppa.
>>43665771I mean it doesn't need to be THAT official. We can just delegate shit when need be you know?
>>43665771Z Force for short.
>>43665720Something like that, yeah.>>43665741On one hand, I don't want it to seem like I'll force you into a no-win scenario, but the possibility of you somehow losing to a future threat is a real one.That, and things might get a bit... well, Supreme Kai of Time might not like what happens.>>43665753You might get an accidental detour from someone. We'll see.
>>43665849>That picPath to Power canon making a visit?
>>43665849Hey, what if a villain built a device that makes it to where everyone can see the future, and intervention from other timelines couldn't be done?
>>43665849Youl'll keep in mind that any daughter Chi-chi has is going to have a ginormous rack when they're an adult, right?
Yeah I'm gonna namefag from now on. This is my name now.
>>43665927hail 2 u
>>43665943Hello peasant anon. It is nice to meet you as well.
>>43665883One possibility.>>43665891Probably won't happen.>>43665915Anon, must you immediately speculate on the chestbutts?
>>43665771The hubris /tg/ can have sometimes... why couldn't we just stay as the Z Fighters? The title doesn't make any sense now.
>>43665963What a beautiful picture of what appears to be a handsome creature. I, Namefag, approve of this image.
>>43665976I hope you mean the guy on the left.
>>43665966I, Namefag, enjoy this blonde visage you have chosen for the OC you call Izumi.>>43665967I, Namefag, find the Earth Defense Force to be a great name for our group. Begone dissenter!
>>43665966>Anon, must you immediately speculate on the chestbutts?Yes.
