>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/dN92iN0LLast time, on Dragon Ball Tuffle Quest Z! You handed over the Tree of Might's sap, met with Konpei again, and spent some time with Launch as she dealt with a jailbreak from former Master Thief, Hasky. You then managed to spot Chiaotzu on his way to Capsule Corp...https://youtu.be/NLOxUvbGG1I
>>46394809You and Launch casually stroll towards Capsule Corp, curious over what the lil' guy is doing there. He's already inside by the time you both get there, and you can tell that Yamcha's with him. Launch places her hands behind her neck. "So, what do you think the lil' guy's up to?""Not quite sure. Most of the Crane School have been sticking to Mifan since the Tournament." you comment, scratching your head. "Plus I rarely see him without Tien around too."As you enter Capsule Corp, you immediately notice your camels carrying some things... into the lab? "Should I ask?"Moe gives a soft grunt, carrying a box of tools. Casual scan of the camels' minds, shows they're helping Bulma and her dad work on the ship. Well, that's nice of them. Chiaotzu and Yamcha are nearby, but you get this sense that they're having a private conversation, for now, at least.>A. Check up with Bulma, see if she might need some help>B. Eh, should probably see what Chiaotzu's here for anyway>C. Something else?
>>46394832>A. Check up with Bulma, see if she might need some help
>>46394832>A. Check up with Bulma, see if she might need some help>tfw you gotta go back to work and miss your favorite questStay alive for at least eight moar hours so I can come back and argue!
>>46394832>>A. Check up with Bulma, see if she might need some help
>>46394809Let's take Yamcha to Wheelo's old lab! ...Just him!
>>46394832>C. Hey Yamcha, I have this thing you and me should go check out at Wheelo's Lab!The April Fools Episode
>>46394832A. Check up with Bulma, see if she might need some help
>>46395199Ah-hah! I've finally caught you, Wilbur! I always knew you had bad ideas, and now Googlechan allows me to see you for exactly who you are!
>>46395199>>46395252>>46395302I'm missing something.
>>46395341QM has teased at all the answers to every question being in Wheelo's Lab, and definitely not a casino run by Saibamen, for Saibamen, and of the Saibamen.
>>46394832You and Launch follow your Camels, arriving to see Bulma working on Kami's spaceship with her father and a few others. Moe places the toolbox next to her, the woman completely focused on her work. "I still don't quite get the power source for this thing, dad.""Well, whatever it is it seems to still be in exceptional condition for something that's been gathering moss for the last few centuries." the man comments, Curly handing him a wrench. "Thank you.""But that's just the thing, any normal power source that we're capable of wouldn't be able to function after such a long time of disrepair." Bulma comments, removing a panel. "I wonder...""Namekians built their ships to last, I'd take it." you mention, flying up to her. "Need any help?""Ah, Maple! Oh, and Launch too. What brings you two here?""Eh, stopped another jailbreak-"Bulma gives an annoyed look. "Hasky?""Hasky." Launch sighs out.Bulma gives a roll of her eyes. "She's never going to learn. You remember what she did the second time she got out, don't you?""I've still got to try." Launch responds, crossing her arms."Anyway, we noticed someone headed here, but he seems to be talking with Yamcha for a moment. Question still stands." you remark, looking at what Bulma's working on.She taps a finger to her chin, then hands you her Scouter. "Can you take this to the computer over there? I've gotten some new data on the ship's makeup, but we need to catalog it." She then shyly bows her head. "And... if it isn't too much trouble, maybe give it a quick analysis yourself?" she asks, hands clapped together. "Please?">A. Hah, sure thing Bulma!>B. Eh, I probably shouldn't stay for too long...>C. Ask about what she's learned so far>D. Something else?
>>46395458>A. Hah, sure thing Bulma!>C. Ask about what she's learned so far
>>46395458>A. Hah, sure thing Bulma!Too bad Acer's not here at the moment. It'd be nice to have another superintelligent shorty here for another opinion. >C. Ask about what she's learned so far

>>46395458>Bulma gives an annoyed look. "Hasky?"When the fuck has she ever met Hasky?
>>46396099Assuming she's never tried to hit capsule corp itself, Launch probably told her about her before.
>>46396195When the fuck have Launch and Bulma ever spoken to each other before?
>>46396209Probably since she's been a cop in the same town. Things happen while we aren't looking, you know.
>>46396328The only police officers Bulma's talked to are Krillin.
>>46396099>>46396209>>46396350Are you the asshole who was bitching over Launch yesterday?
>>46395458You take the Scouter and smile. "Hah, sure thing, Bulma! What all have you gotten through so far?""Well..." she starts, taking a small brush to some components and dusting them off. "I've gotten some ideas on how this thing travels faster than light. Looks like some sci-fi shows are right on the money." She moves another panel away, dusting it off as well. "'Warp drive' of sorts. I recall some structures on Jaco's ship, but this has a different design to them. Way older, and yet... way more durable. Even without maintenance, we'd be able to take this ship to Jupiter in seconds." She looks at the new place she's opened up. "Moe, torch."The camel hands her a small blowtorch, Bulma using it to cut something out. Launch raises an eyebrow as she watches on. "...kid, complete honesty here?""Hmn?" You look back to her as you bring the Scouter to the computer.She looks at Curly and Larry carefully moving the glass dome of the ship's front over to a technician. "Those camels of yours always kinda weirded me out. How do they know these things? I mean... this can't be normal.""They ARE used camels." you state nonchalantly. "And they were a good deal." You give a little stretch and get to work.(cont.)
>>46396871https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQMdtz2nht0You delve deep into the data from the Scouter and start looking things over. It's... interesting. The ship apparently was designed for frequent travel, to and from stars systems across the entire galaxy. A few notable planets are listed on it, too. To your surprise it even lists a planet of... Plantians? Huh, so they were in contact with Plant's first inhabitants. Neat.There's also a planet "Metamor" listed on there, along with "Eros," "Hera," and "Beenz." ...strange linguistic coincidences. Last bits the data reveals are some things on... oh fantastic! Repair and maintenance instructions! You bolt over to Bulma, telling her what you've found. It's not perfect, but it should help get things moving along quicker."All right!" she shouts out cheerfully. "We'll be to Namek in no time.""Well, that's some good news." Yamcha's voice addresses you all. "Say, Bulma? Chiaotzu's here with a little request..."He steps forward, catching everyone's attention. "I... I know this might sound a little selfish, but, I'd like to come with you guys to Namek.">A. Ask him why>B. Let him talk with Bulma first before you jump in>C. Something else?
>>46396896>B. Let him talk with Bulma first before you jump inLet the little guy say his peace!
>>46396896>B. Let him talk with Bulma first before you jump in
>>46396896>B. Let him talk with Bulma first before you jump inSweet.
>>46396896>B. Let him talk with Bulma first before you jump inChiaotzu's always needed more screen time. So why not?
>>46396896You sit back in the chair, watching Chiaotzu curiously. This is different. Bulma wipes her hands off and jumps down off the ship. "Why's that?"He shyly lowers his head. "I... talked it over with Yamcha a bit just now, and I've been talking with Tien since Christmas about all of this. I... this might be selfish, but I feel like I'm not going to really be of much help here on Earth. And I know it might be a bit crowded if I barge in like that, but I want to help you guys on your trip there, and..." He rubs the back of his neck. "...I'd like to see if this is something that can help motivate me to really try harder to improve myself."Bulma smiles. "Well, I don't have a problem with it. Does Tien know?" Chiaotzu nods. "What about Trip?""I'll be asking her soon." he states. He looks over at you finally. "What do you think, Maple?">A. That's a great idea, Chiaotzu! More the merrier!>B. I don't know, are you sure you can handle it?>C. Something else?
>>46397338>>A. That's a great idea, Chiaotzu! More the merrier!
>>46397338>A. That's a great idea, Chiaotzu! More the merrier!Motivation is the key to getting better. You can be potentially the strongest person around, but if your heart isn't in it, there's a good chance you won't get far.Just like Gohan in DB Super. They still acknowledge that he could still probably be the strongest out of all of the Z fighters, but he doesn't really have the desire to become the strongest. Well, that and he wants a life outside of being a martial arts autist.
>>46397338>C.I think it would be a good experience for you. I'm cool with it.
>>46397338>C. Fair warning, you might blow up on this journey.
>>46397338>A. That's a great idea, Chiaotzu! More the merrier!
>>46397338>C. Woo! Not the shortest on the team!
>>46397502Supporting, but only as an internal thought.
>>46397338You grin wide. "That's a great idea, Chiaotzu! Heh, good to see you taking initiative. Bet this'll be a good experience for you, just like it will be for all of us. Welcome aboard." Haha yes, not the shortest one going on this trip!Chiaotzu blushes a little. "Thank you both.""Heh, had the same train of thought, Maple." Yamcha comments. "Glad you're doing your best, lil' guy."Launch nods and smiles. "How about those Crane School students, they cool with all this too?""They are. Tien's recommended they take a good break until New Years anyway, they need some time to relax." he responds. "I'll be headed to the Lookout soon. Thank you all so much."You finally make it home, Baba telling you telepathically that Goku's going to be training with Beelzebub for a few days, with King Yemma's permission. Also she mentions that Melee and Gola will be around again, first to meet with King Yemma on clues on Towa's recent appearances.On the morning of New Years Eve, it seems that she's aware of this, and she makes a visit to your house directly, appearing outside. "Little Tuffle Girl.""I have a name, Towa. Maple. Maaaay-puuulll." you stress, Gohan and Peppa distracted by Groucho for the moment.She gives you an annoyed look. "I'm here to make a deal.">A. So generous. Why should I trust you on this?>B. Pay me back for the Christmas Wine and then we'll talk>C. Reject it outright>D. Something else?
>>46398084>A. So generous. Why should I trust you on this?>B. Pay me back for the Christmas Wine and then we'll talkPinch her for every demonic dollary-doo she has!
>>46398084>A. So generous. Why should I trust you on this?>B. Pay me back for the Christmas Wine and then we'll talk
>>46398084>>A. So generous. Why should I trust you on this?>>B. Pay me back for the Christmas Wine and then we'll talk
>>46398084>D. Chuckle at her deviously.
>>46398084>A. So generous. Why should I trust you on this?
>>46398313Supporting in case she tries anything.
>>46398084"First, pay me back for the Christmas Wine you stole. Every zenni of it." you state with a grunt.Towa... looks at you in genuine bewilderment. "...what.""The Christmas Wine. That you stole." your eyes narrow at her. She's not getting out of this one."...what ARE you talking about?" she demands in a far more earnest and confused voice than you're used to hearing. Sharp contrast from her usual haughty tone. "I... what Christmas Wine?!" She almost seems a little hurt that you're accusing her of something so petty.Wait... so she's not playing dumb. Well... shit. Now it's a bigger mystery than you were anticipating. Who could have taken it? "Ah... nevermind then. Well, you're being especially generous recently. Why should I trust you on this?"Towa finally smiles deviously. "It could be of great benefit to you, and my deal is relatively simple.""Is it now." You don't even try to make that sound like a question."Little Tuffle girl, I offer a promise to not bother you, or any of your friends on this planet from now until the time you return from Namek." She leans closer, an intimidating, twisted smirk on her face. "Neither me, nor Gero.""In exchange for what?" Oh this is clearly too good to be true. "If it's someone's soul, or something like that..." you grin deviously. "...we'll see how much you enjoy craft glitter.""Cute." she grunts out, eye twitching. "No, nothing like that. I want something simple... I am aware that you've met with some individuals recently at the Tree of Might. Gero tried to track them, but they seem to have... given him the slip. All I ask for is this: give me a name. Any name you know of.">A. As if>B. ...you absolutely promise to leave the Earth alone?>C. Something else?
>>46398938>Just to be clear, she is aware that if she had just asked us for help with whatever mysterious plan she needs us strong for in the first place we probably would have willingly helped? Unless she wants to blow up the universe or something.
>>46398938>B. ...you absolutely promise to leave the Earth alone?>C. Only if you start calling me by name
>>46398938>>46399005Supporting. We'll help her, if she starts being clear with us.
>>46398938>C. Something else?If she's stooping down to try and bargain with Maple, then she must be really desperate. Which means that Maple is in an advantageous position at the moment.Perhaps we can get her to give us a better deal than what she's offering?
>>46394809Hey cool, this sub is in april fools mode.Hi Scott, Hi Chat! How are we today? Yesterday I went to the Illawarra master builders' club and ate 5 plates of food at the Bistro. It was pretty good. For only $13.30 AUD too
>>46399170You're obese Derrick.
>>46399005Hasn't she told us quite bluntly what her plan is already? Mira?
>>46399251> I am seeking to create the ultimate being, Mira. Your little planet has many, many interesting things. Many interesting people. And the potential to help me create something the universe will bow before. A true King of the Demon Realm that will not make the mistakes of my brother or my brat of a nephew on the throne. All of creation will answer to us. All of... time."Yep.
>>46399088I'll support this too....I mean, I wanna be nice to her to maybe turn her from evil, but at the same time if we give her names she's probably gonna go back (or forward) in time to try and erase someone from existence.And I kinda don't wanna piss off the time patrol....wait, why can't she just go back in time to when they gave us their names? Why does she even *need* our help in the first place?
>>46399107I was wonder what we could ask for, though?The first thing that comes to mind is for her to extend her protection for our friends from other threats, as in preventing them from getting killed/maimed/injured/banished to another dimension. I don't trust to ask her for any items or gifts, since she could easily bug those or rig them with other types of nasty surprises.
>>46399293>...wait, why can't she just go back in time to when they gave us their names? Why does she even *need* our help in the first place?she's probably already tried that, would be my guessMaybe she got Trunks'd again, this time for actual time travel.
>>46399284Okay yeah no.>A. As if
>>46398938>A. As ifThis seems like a terrible idea, trusting her. Get the glitter.
>>46398938Supporting >>46399088If she refuses anything better, >A. As if
>>46398938>A. As ifGuys if they've already said they're on our side, and are against Towa, be a bit of a dick move to give Towa this
>>46398938"Fridge Largemeat and Blast Hardcheese. Also Bob Johnson, but he's a bit of a dick.">A. As if
>>46398938>C.Start calling me by name.And help me find who took my Christmas Wine.Okay, so who are our suspects?Gohan and Peppa stealing it as a matter of childhood curiosityGroucho, Larry, Curly and Moe stealing it as part of some convoluted planYajirobeA Cameo by some Lucasarts playable character who needed the wine to put in a time capsule to make vinegar to power a battery
>>46399804It was clearly Uncle Arctus!
>>46399824I miss Eail ;_;
>>46399798Hahahaha yes. Supporting.
>>46399798Oh, you mean Bubblegum, STEEL BEAMS, and Gohan
>>46399967STEEL BEAMS is the best character.
>>46399967I'm pretty sure it was Son Ghoan, SSJ5 Gohan, and LSSJSSGSSJSSJG Degeta.
>>46400011No no, it was The Next Gohan.
>>46400011>>46400028Wasn't this Girl Gohan seeing as she was a girl?
>>46399967Honic Sedgehog and KNACKLES
>>46400036No, Arcosians don't have genders. Although in some universes they do. But this Gohan lacked the Gohan on the dorsal Gohan, so it was a dude.
>>46400060>>46400059>>46400036>>46400028>>46400011You guys sure STEEL BEAMS wasn't with them?Oh right it was DrDose instead, his alt.
Kato I know you're shitposting over the names hurry up already.
>>46400165TheLegendarySuperSandLesbian doesn't fit in the name filter tho, I had to settle for SandLesbianHey anyone seen Blythe around here?
>>46400165Just reminiscing over the good old days when DBXV was still a popular game and there was a community. So much time spent in lobbies posing, trying to get a perfect Ginyu force ensemble for a picture, and all that stuff. It was fun while it lasted.
>>46400208KATO POST ALREADY
>>46400268Sorry, I had to boot up Xenoverse and hang around Toki town to take a sample of everyone's copy pasted names.There's a male buu named Mrpopo here who's entirely black.
>>46398938"If you're coming to me for this, you must really not have any other leads." you comment, smirking back at her. "I wonder what else you're willing to offer."Her eyes fill with rage. "Do not test me, little Tuff-""Maaaaaay-puuuullll." you stress out. "I have a name. That you keep willingly ignoring it in favor of the pet name says a lot, Towa."Her face goes red. "Names. Now."...you get an idea. "Fridge Largemeat and Blast Hardcheese. There was also Bob John-""Stop trying to be cute, Tuffle.""Trying?" you ask cheekily. "Pink, Iceman, and Pancake."Her grip tightens on her staff. "This offer will only happen once."You scratch the top of your head. "Bubblegum was one of them. The other two... Ghaon and Jet Fuel? Wait, no, that wasn't it...""...everything that happens from now on will be your fault." she threatens. "I'll give you one last chance.""STEEL BEAMS!""...I hate you, Maple."Aha! "See, you do know my name! Good job!"Towa leaves, vanishing as your daughter manages to towards you. "Skunk lady?">A. Her name is Towa, Peppa, and it's not nice to call her that>B. ...where's your brother?>C. Something else?
>>46400413>A. Her name is Towa, Peppa, and it's not nice to call her that>B. ...where's your brother?

>>46400413You frown at your daughter. "Peppa, sweetie, we've been over this. It's not nice to call her that. Her name is Towa.""Toh-wa?" she repeats curiously."That's right, and..." Wait a minute. "...Peppa, where's your brother?"A flash of foresight hits. He's about to wake up a sleeping dinosaur. When it wakes up, wait, something happens to it... no, NO... "WAAAAHHHH!"Shit! You quickly grab your daughter and bolt off to your son. You quickly locate him by the dinosaur and grab him away from it before it awakens. When it does, there seems to be something... odd about it. There seems to be this glint of hatred in its eyes as it notices you. It snaps in the air futilely, but then spots... your tiger."GROWCHA!" Gohan shouts in a panic, struggling in your arms. You manage to hold him as tight as you can as you bolt down to Groucho, standing in the dinosaur's way.You put the kids down behind you and look the overgrown lizard in the eyes. "Don't even think about trying it."It lets out a loud roar...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ILnVDI3gKVg...and gets thwacked on the head by something red, dazing it. Wait a second... that's the Power Pole! But..."Estend!" Peppa shouts and gives the dinosaur another thwack. It backs away, allowing you a moment to grab it by the tail and toss it hard over the horizon. Peppa gives a gleeful cheer, leaning the still extended Power Pole on the side of your house as she checks up on her brother.>A. Gohan, are you okay? You can't sneak up on sleeping dinosaurs like that...>B. Peppa, when did you learn how to do that?>C. Take the kids and Groucho inside, then see what was up with that dinosaur>D. Something else?

>>46401362>A. Gohan, are you okay? You can't sneak up on sleeping dinosaurs like that...>C. Take the kids and Groucho inside, then see what was up with that dinosaurI guess we should be thankful that the creator of the Power Pole wasn't a stickler for correct pronunciation or spelling.
>>46401362>"Estend!" Peppa shouts and gives the dinosaur another thwack.Deep in Makai, while Goku is still training with Beelzebub, he suddenly feels a surge of pride, allowing him to get the upper hand against the Demon Prince for a brief moment.>A. Gohan, are you okay? You can't sneak up on sleeping dinosaurs like that...>C. Take the kids and Groucho inside, then see what was up with that dinosaur

>>46401362>Phantasm Disco them into Oozarus.
>>46401362You approach your son, patting him on the head. "Gohan, sweetie, are you okay?" He nods quietly, Peppa hugging him tight. Ah, kids... "Listen son, you can't sneak up on sleeping dinosaurs like that. You'll wake them up, scare them, and then they'll get mad at you.""Sowwy mah..." he replies, hanging his head.You sigh softly, picking the two of them up. "You two need to head inside, mama's gonna make sure that dinosaur knows it shouldn't be chomping on kids." Telekinetically picking up the Power Pole and breathing out a "Retract." to shrink it back to normal size. You look at your daughter with a raised eyebrow. "Now when did you learn how to do that, sweetie?""Watchin' papa!" she responds cheerfully. Ah, of course she did.You get the kids settled down, Groucho resting beside them as they drink some juice, and then move back outside to locate the dinosaur. To your surprise, the thing's still alive, mostly dazed. You float down to it, the look of hatred in its eyes gone... and replaced with terror. You glare at it. "You have until the count of three to start heading out before I make sure you're thrown out. And next time you'll be lucky if you end up in Jingle Village and not a crater on the moon."The dinosaur takes your advice and runs into the distance. Heading back... well, you've got some time before your scheduled New Years Eve Party at Capsule Corp...>A. Try to find Raditz, see how he's doing>B. Kids, let's go to an amusement park!>C.

>>46403153What do you think they go to Wheelo's Lab every month for?
>>46403174We really need to find someone for Raditz. He's been a bro.Matchmaker Maple's got a track record, come on!
>>46403249Either Tights or Chaco.
>>46403249......Hasky? Another former criminal.She could out-do Launch and become the first human galactic patrol woman.
>>46403249The one Crane student that's tsundere for him.
>>46403329But that's just a relationship of respect and envy.
>>46403347Is it? Is it REALLY?
>>46403249Suno. Suno's not a fighter, but she's proactive and determined. Raditz might like her. Plus she clearly has a thing for space monkeys in the quest.
>>46402512Heading back home, an idea crosses your mind. You arrive just as Gohan finishes his juice, Peppa having already drank hers. "Well kids, how about we go find uncle Raditz... and go to an amusement park with him!"Gohan's eyes light up, Peppa nearly screaming in joy. Thaaaaat's a yes. You search for your brother in law and contact him telepathically to meet you in West City for something. Upon arriving, you bring him and the kids to good ol...DREAMLAND!https://youtu.be/Bf8VNhkL6cEIn spite of the relatively long line, you clearly weren't the first to have this idea, you make it in. The kids enjoy a few of the rides more appropriate for their ages, even manage to make it to a haunted house. Peppa... nearly smashes one of the cardboard creatures that jump out at her. Gohan actually DOES, to your slight embarrassment. Raditz manages to laugh at that. "They may be half-Tuffle, but it hasn't dulled their Saiyan instincts any.""Peppa's been picking up some tricks that her dad managed when he was much older. She's already started tracking people by scent, and just earlier today she gave a dinosaur a good thwack on the head with Goku's Power Pole.You sit the kids down for a proper lunch, Raditz going for a hot dog with extra relish. As the four of you enjoy your meals, you spot something you weren't expecting today: Chuu Lee's there. And she's not alone. She's with... Keli?>A. Hey Raditz, when you come back to Earth, think you might try settling with someone here? Like, oh, someone in... that general direction...?>B. See what's up with them>C. Eh, leave them be>D. Something else?
>>46403815>A. Hey Raditz, when you come back to Earth, think you might try settling with someone here? Like, oh, someone in... that general direction...?>B. See what's up with them
Rolled 2 (1d20)>>46403815Too late, Duane.Now I ship Chuu Lee x Keli.>D. Something else?We should totally hook Raditz up with Hasky. Think about it.
>>46403815>D. Go attend a play.
>>46403867But I don't think about Hasky at all!
>>46403815>B. See what's up with them
>>46403815>A. Hey Raditz, when you come back to Earth, think you might try settling with someone here? Like, oh, someone in... that general direction...?>D. Something else?Just try and casually observe them. If they have a full day planned, we don't want to go ruining the mood and all that. Also, who's Keli?
>>46403815>B. See what's up with themDon't interrupt if they're in the middle of a conversation or something.>>46403867>Now I ship Chuu Lee x Keli.I find this intriguing, but pretty sure Chuu Lee has a thing for Lapis.
>>46403815>A. Hey Raditz, when you come back to Earth, think you might try settling with someone here? Like, oh, someone in... that general direction...?
>>46403815>D. Go attend an Opera.
>>46403948One of Tien's new students. The girl who's all salty over Raditz becoming a "new favorite" of Tien's.
>>46403815>D. Go attend a Cabaret.
>>46403815>>A. Hey Raditz, when you come back to Earth, think you might try settling with someone here? Like, oh, someone in... that general direction...?>>B. See what's up with them
>>46403815>D. "So, Raditz, it's been a while since I've been in space. What sorts of things are happening out there these days that you know of?"
>>46403815You pat Gohan's head gently. "Saaaaay, Raditz, I know it'll be a while before you come back to Earth, but... well, ever think you might try to find someone? You know, to settle down with." He gives you an odd look, suspicious as he chews his hotdog. "Someone like, oh... in that... general direction?" You point vaguely at Keli. No promises, but hey.He keeps an eyebrow raised as he looks back. Gulping down his hotdog... he starts laughing. "Hah, and they say you're a mind reader...""What? What's wrong?" you ask with a frown."I doubt Chuu Lee would be up for that, and Keli... you really haven't picked up on that?" he asks with a sly smirk. "Well, she isn't interested in me, in any case. I respect her tenacity at least."Hrmn. Going to need to try for someone else, then. Matchmaker Maple will not fail yet! "Well, speaking of space, has there been anything big going on out there recently that you know of?""Freeza and Cooler probably have some stupid dispute that they'll be trying to resolve. 'Business' as usual. Reports of strange vessels have cropped up on the edge of PTO territory. But very little that should be of concern to your group when you're out there." He takes a sip from his drink, but, in a surprising show of concern. "...that said, space is vast. Don't let your guard down. Freeza is probably terrified of the idea of the Super Saiyan, and who knows what he'd do if he heard about Namek.""Fair point." you state. You then focus a little on Chuu Lee and Keli, not getting close enough to attract direct attention to you, they probably know you and Raditz are here, but you're not bothering them. Still, curious...(cont.)
>>46404988"Food too? Come now, you don't have to..." the redheaded girl says with a shy smile."I insist. Come on, you've been through a lot. It isn't too much to let a... friend get you a meal." the silver-haired girl responds in a much happier tone than you're used to hearing from her voice. "So... were you thinking on joining the Mifan Tournament?""I'm... not sure. I know it's open registration and all, but I don't really know who I should pick as a partner." Chuu Lee responds hesitantly. "I'd have to start training with someone pretty soon if we want to win it with teamwork, instead of just... relying on my strength." She looks down at her hands, clenching them into fists."W-well..." Keli seems to freeze up, you notice her cheeks going slightly red. "...I hope you find someone soo-"Chuu Lee bolts up, an audible growl coming from her stomach, loud enough that even your kids can hear it. "Egh. E-excuse me.""S-sure!" Keli responds in a tone that almost sounds like a panic. As soon as Chuu Lee is gone, to the ladies room... she's hitting her head on the table, quietly mumbling "Stupid! Stupid! Stupid!" to herself.>A. ...Oh. OH. Ohhhhh...>B. Keli, are... you okay?>C. Maybe let her be...>D. ...wait a second, what did Chuu Lee eat?>E. Something else?
>>46405012>E. Realize we'll be missing the Mifan Tournament
>>46405012>A, C, then panicked D
>>46405012>A. ...Oh. OH. Ohhhhh...MATCHMAKER MAPLE MODE ENGAGE?>B. Keli, are... you okay?Then,>D. ...wait a second, what did Chuu Lee eat?FOOD POISONING

>>46405012>A. ...Oh. OH. Ohhhhh myyyyyy>B. Keli, are... you okay?Somewhere in Otherworld, Lapis feels strong and conflicting emotions.>D. ...wait a second, what did Chuu Lee eat?
>>46405112Well, we should probably advise the poor girl to be honest about her feelings, but we have no idea if Chu even swings that way.
>>46405012Okay soMaple x GokuChi Chi x AcerBulma x YamchaLaunch x BulmaChuu Lee x LapisYajirobe x KorinLazuli x ?Trip x ?? x Krillin? x Chiaotzu? x Raditz? x Master Roshi>Matchmaker maple noMatchmaker maple yes!

>>46405266So now we need to be on the lookout for Raditz AND her? Damn, this is gonna be harder than I thought....I wonder if Tights swings that way...

>>46405344>Launch x BulmaI think you meant x Tien. I hope you did.
>>46405344>Launch x BulmaHey Bulma can't hog Launch AND Yamcha! If she gets Launch Acer gets Yamcha.
>>46405012Hey Todd ( Kato )You been playing much Harvest Moon lately?Penny is best waifu.
Do we still have time to go see Melchior at all?The old wise man would probably be useful to pair up to work with Trip, Konpei and Korin...
>>46405551Maggy stop shitposting on dragonchan and get back behind the 4th wall
>>46405579My second suggestion is Annin.
>>46405344Lazuli x KrillinTrip x KamicolloMai x ChiaotzuSuno x RaditzPorn x Master RoshiKeli x ...MeleeThere, MATCHMAKER MAPLE NEVER FAILS.
>>46405652And Chuu Lee?
>>46405652Porn here.Aww, I wanted to get in on the Bulma three way.
>>46405641Isn't she that giant forgeguard?Who we shipping her with?I dunno, set her up with Raditz or something
>>46405831He isn't coming back anon. Arctus is kill. Eail is ghost.
>>46405012>A. ...Oh. OH. Ohhhhh...>B. Keli, are... you okay?>And be honest
>>46405652>Keli x ...Melee...Kato is Melee gay? Because if she is I'm jumping on this boat so hard. So hard that even Guts will be wondering when I get off.
>>46405968Kabu looks different, and she has a Bulma.
>>46406020What about Maple on the side
>>46406385...so you're suggestion Bulma/Kabu/Maple?We'll need to convince Chuckles to write it...
>>46406479We gotta include some degenerate bullshit too like creative use of the micro band and/or power pole.
>>46406542Mate, That's basically standard stuff for KabxBulma.
>>46405012...you're going to miss the Mifan Tournament. Ah damn. You look at Keli, still banging her head on the table there. Ohhhh boy. Now it all makes sense......brobro probably already knew didn't he.You stand and walk over to the poor girl. "Are... you okay?""I'm an idiot." she mumbles, stopping finally. "I freeze up, stutter, and right before I can say it," she throws her hands up into the air, "suddenly I've gotten her sick!"You sigh out. "Bad luck happens. But that didn't sound like you were really about to... say 'it.'"Her face goes bright red. "I-it's not that simple! I... she..." Keli tries to cover her head with her arms. "...it's hard.""It's better to make sure someone knows about your feelings, even if they don't feel the same." you comment. "Keeping it in the dark, trying to ignore it, is just going to hurt you in the long run." You pat her on the back as gently as you can. Your eye manages to wander over to what Chuu Lee was eating... wait. It's empty, but that looks like... ice cream? "...what exactly did you order for her?"Keli looks up. "One of the banana split sundaes. Why do you-"You get a flash of insight. Your kids. GOHAN NO. You move like lightning back to your table, grabbing the sundae before your son can put his spoon in it. He pouts slightly, eyes starting to water, Raditz asking what the hell just happened as you place it down away from the table. Your daughter sneakily tries to grab a spoonful... but stops as she gets a good whiff of it. You can't really smell it yourself, but something about that thing's gone south, and she just confirmed it.>A. Check in on Chuu Lee, see if she's okay>B. Mention it to the service desk>C. Talk with Keli a bit more>D. Something else?
>>46399879havent heard from him in a wile he still alive?
>>46406575>D. Something else?Your kids are half saiyan you tool, they can eat roadkill and not get sick.Give 'em the damn sundae.
>>46406575>B. Mention it to the service deskFirst things first.>>46406601Wouldn't want to risk it. And it might be something an adult saiyan would be fine with but a child half saiyan would not.
>>46406575>A, tell Raditz to do B
>>46406575>A. Check in on Chuu Lee, see if she's okay>>46406601Even if Saiyan stomachs are iron, I still wouldn't let one consume a tainted item of food if I could help it.
>>46406577I wonder where Struggling Student guy wentprobs dedAnyway>D. Something else?We never did get to go backstage at the haunted house in an abandoned amusement park when we were kids did we.That's some bullshit right thereI'd like to say I'm salty about it.
>>46406601If whatever's in there is bad enough to make Peppa back away, I ain't lettin' no kids near it.
>>46406642Could just be grapes. Goku never could handle his grapes.
>>46406669>grapes>in a sundaeWhat kind of world do you live in?
>>46406669Hint: This isn't the abridged universe.
>>46406575>D. "I cheesed off Towa earlier. She may or may not be taking revenge for it. Shoot, I'm being paranoid, but it's served me well so far today.">A. Check on Chuu Lee.
>>46406689I doubt she's behind the tainted ice cream, but we do need to warn everyone that she'll likely try to pull something while we're gone.
>>46406687Hint2: That just means you can't see it coming.
>>46406689Dude what if ice cream could drain your power.Dude what if there was like some Cold / Ice themed villain, but instead of being all frost puns and -50% movement speed and telekinetic glaciers and snowboarding, he's a dessert chef.
>>46406575So the sundae could be linked the strange behavior the dinosaur...Poison of some sort to alter moods?
>>46406771>Towa hires a Frost Demon ice cream chef that is skilled at poisoning food>Towa found Universe 7 Frost
>>46406716She would have pulled something on Namek if we had agreed to her deal. She said she wouldn't do anything on Earth, she never said anything about anywhere else.
>>46406881Is she going to show up in Super ever?
>>46406884So technically all she has to do is chuck another Meteor Of Badshit at earth, and so long as she frontloads her fuckery and doesn't do anything extra once it breaks atmosphere, she's upholding her side of the agreement.
>>46406937Through loopholes and semantics, yes. That's why you never make a deal with the devil, or in this case, sexy demon lady.
>>46406937>Towa sets the Makyo Star on a collision course with Earth
>>46407077>Makyan Garlic the Third!
>>46406937>Giant comet made mostly if Ice covers the planet in snowflakes>Everyone gets their strength drained>>46406976This is also why, whenever you make a video game, it will be sequence broken, and people will try to do retarded stuff to see if it still counts as beating the game (or giving you score).UFO: Enemy Unknown:Forcing extra UFOs to come to earththenIntentionally blowing up everything near where they land (except the aliens' dropped weapons)whileSelling weapons to anyone who pays, regardless of how the weapons will get used (e.g. in human on human violence)still gets you positive points.This is why you never say "Your mission is to reduce damage to Earth by Aliens"because then Xcom just blows up the Earth first, so aliens can't get credit.The more xenos you trigger to invade, the more damage they could potentially do, so the more damage you can """prevent""".Human on human violence? Totally not your problem, sell weapons to dissidents and start World War 3 so the global weapons market gets bigger. More money for more high explosives to kill more aliens.fuckin gg.
>>46406575Well, that crisis was averted. "Raditz, Keli, something's up with the ice cream here. Now I MIGHT be just a little paranoid about this, but I have reason to suspect that because I pissed off Towa earlier, she's trying to get back at me in the most petty ways possible. Hopefully not and it's just someone who somehow got the ice cream to go bad. Point is... good idea to mention it to someone before this becomes an incident. I'm going to check on Chuu Lee."Keli bites her lip. "I... o-okay. Sure..."You get Gohan to calm down before you do, apologizing to your son for taking away the ice cream and trying to explain as best you can that it'd gone bad, Peppa helping you. You can hear Raditz converse a bit with Keli as they walk to the service desk. "So what exactly do you see in that girl?""I... look, say you meet this adorable, strong, fearless, redhead beauty of a woman, what's not to..." she trails off out of earshot, and you don't pay attention much to what she has to say as you head in to check on Chuu Lee.(cont.)
>>46407401The sounds you hear are... not pleasant. "...need me to hold your hair back?""Nrrghhhh... 'mh... Maple? Eh... no, I'm... HRGKH..."Oooh that sounds nasty. Wait... "Chuu Lee, have you tried to heal yourself, just a little?""Made... made it w... HRLLGGK..." Aaaand again. "...worse..."...well that's not good. You stand outside the stall she's in, rubbing the back of your neck. "...so, think you could down a Senzu? Or should we wait it out?"Your student pants for a moment. "Whe... wa... wait it out... just... BRGLH..."Finally, she manages to get it out of her system, you quickly catching her as she stumbles out of the stall and helping her to the sink, a quick Clothes Beam to fix up her clothing. You finally manage to give her a Senzu, and while that DOES indeed do the trick, you wonder why the Ki-based Healing didn't help that out much. Still, walking her out the bathroom, you smile down. "So... that part might have sucked hard, but you seemed to be enjoying your date.""...date?"https://youtu.be/emJaN6Tb7vM>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST Z #27 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 all for tonight, folks. I'll be around like usual for questions and such. Did y'all have fun?
>>46407419Verily. How much time we got left before namek? What's our top ten things/people to visit?
>>46407419Thanks for running, Kato! I had fun. If Towa didn't steal Maple's Christmas Wine, I wonder who did?Also, what would a hypothetical Council of Towas think about this universe's Towa?
>>46407518Arctus did it R-right? ;_;
>>46407742 He's just...training in another dimension...
>>46407467Still quite a while, enough time to get some training in.Wishing Raditz goodbye, Melchior visit, maybe seeing Annin one more time, checking on on Tien, possibly training with Chiaotzu some (note that he and Yamcha have already agreed on training together anyway in preparation for the journey), perhaps spending some more time with Trip, maybe a visit to the Kaiju, helping Lazuli train some (she's also going to be training some on her own in preparation), personal training, and maybe visiting Wheelo's fortress.Depending on things, you might get up to eight or nine of those done before you leave. Five minimum.>>46407518Who indeed?Some are laughing at her that she was reduced to "groveling." Others are a bit more sympathetic. Yet more are HIGHLY suspicious of her actions and her "favoritism" of you. General consensus is not very positive.>>46407742>>46407785Arctus will return some day. You just have to hope.
>>46407918Was refusing Towa the right thing to do?...don't actually answer that. It's better as a mystery.
>>46407918Kato, are we ever going to see more of "canon" Path to Power like we did when we went to Muscle Tower or talked with Baba? I'm curious.
>>46408182What do you think, anon?All I'll say on it is that it got pretty amusing seeing first some Space Mutiny and then Xenoverse in there. Couldn't help myself in using them.>>46408217I could give a little summary of things that've happened over there either here or on Ask. Anons interested in that?
>>46408415Either or. Thread is preference but if Ask is easier I can ask it there.
>>46408415Oh wow, the name generator gave me a cheesy name. I'll take it!Anyway, I know she was gonna do something evil with that info, like erasing time patrollers from history, but... she *did* grovel. And we refused her.I don't know how to explain it, but... it's like, I wanna redeem her (because I love redeeming bad guys) and I can't help but feel like this may have ruined that.But that's just me second guessing myself.
You know what race the Galactic Patrol should recruit as wardens? Yakon's race. They could help to keep prisoners drained of energy, and since they operate perfectly in complete darkness, you can save on lighting costs in the prison-colony! And unless the prisoners can also operate perfectly in the dark, then they ought to be significantly easier to take down when they start acting up or trying to escape. Then there's the whole thing that incentivizes them to go to work there: free, delicious energy. They'd be pretty diligent workers, I'd imagine, since it's a pretty cushy role that also nets them cashmoney to spend on other shit.Yakon's race for Galactic Wardens!
>>46408727Who would win, Yakon or Frieza at the end of namek?
>>46408633That's one way to think of it.>>46408727That's a pretty decent idea. Now if only you could manage to get them to be cooperative and a bit less... bloodthirsty. Not a lot could take the job, but those who could, they'd be very helpful guards.>>46408782Yakon could probably take most of Freeza's attacks provided Freeza sticks to Ki. The problem is that Freeza has telekinesis and can bring a lot of hurt physically. Yakon is relatively strong, but Freeza is still a good deal stronger at full strength.>>46408614So.Raditz would still come to Earth, after Goku's married Bulma and had his sons Gohan and Trunks. Raditz would show up and head towards the highest Power Level on the planet. Something a league above his own. His encounter with Goku would be vastly different from "normal" timelines. Raditz would get quite a beating after trying to kidnap the boys, and flee with tail between his legs, Nappa and Vegeta intrigued by the fact that Kakarot has gotten so strong. Raditz wouldn't head back to them, opting to land on one of Freeza's nearby planets and heal up. He'd head back, trailing Nappa and Vegeta, once fully healed. Goku would be kinda taking things lightly, instead focusing on helping Tien, Chiaotzu, Krillin, Yamcha, and Chi-chi get stronger. Tien would be second strongest behind Goku, but it's an ever widening gap that both he and Goku are aware of. By the time the Saiyans arrive, everyone's a good deal stronger than they would be in the regular timeline. In a last ditch effort, Vegeta would try to turn the tide with the False Moon.Goku would retaliate by going Super Saiyan.The Saiyans would be beaten and then offered a chance to surrender. Vegeta would take a gamble. If this planet somehow allowed Kakarot to become a Super Saiyan, then clearly he, Prince of Saiyans could achieve the power in no time.(cont.)
>>46409498They'd stay on Earth, but it would be a very, very uneasy truce between factions. Goku would be the one trying to bridge the gap best he could, and Raditz might start appreciating the fact that, while his brother might be soft, he's got the power of a true Saiyan.Things would change the day Turles arrives. Using the Tree of Might, he'd almost be as strong as Goku. Friends would die against his forces. Slug's arrival would happen at roughly the same time, and he'd end up using the Dragon Balls, to wish for his youth back. They'd have to get on the boat.The trip to Namek again would feature Vegeta, Nappa, and Raditz "escorting" Bulma, Gohan, Trunks, Chi-chi, Krillin, and Goku to the planet. The idea of getting a wish himself is still tossing around in Vegeta's head since the Dragon Ball revelation. And he's clearly worried Freeza's heard about Namek somehow. Chi-chi doesn't trust the alien Saiyans even as far as she can throw them, but she knows that they have to work with them. Trunks and Gohan are a bit more receptive, and Goku still sees the potential for them to become great allies and rivals. Nappa and Raditz show potential for change, and while Vegeta's prideful, he knows that he's still not "the Super Saiyan."After a few distractions, they would make it to Namek. To their relief, Freeza isn't on the planet.But something else is.And Freeza is aware of the Saiyans' betrayal at this point. He's ready to make an example of them.On Earth.
>>46409498I'd put them only at the maximum security facilities, where the worst and strongest offenders are. The obvious incentives of satisfying their desires for their favorite food and a little bit of their bloodlust could be good enough to keep them in check - they'd certainly be allowed to beat the fuck out of anyone trying to escape, which is what satisfies the bloodlust, they just need to know that the prisoners have to be kept alive, so they can't take it too far. And hey, in a way, keeping someone alive to beat the hell out of them again and again is even better for bloodthirsty folks like them, since it's a touch more sadistic to do long-term shit to someone instead of simply killing them.
Where did we get magical camels from? Did we encounter Crazy Hassan in a thread that I missed?
>>46413254Yes, we got them during the red ribbon army arc.
So, Tien has a third eye from training, right?
>>46409601Perhaps, perhaps.>>46410686Could have been much, much worse. She knows from experience.>>46413254>>46414261Hassan himself is the one who sold you them. They were a good deal.>>46415079Intense meditation was involved.
>>46415986>>46416008What's Over Justice's power level? His desk is more bitchin than yemma's.
