>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/eYQtRbFPLast time, on Dragon Ball Tuffle Quest Z! You learned the MP Buster spell from Piccolo and decided to put your skills to the test, facing off against Super Saiyan Turles in the Pendulum Room, and claiming victory!
>>49132691https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aO_Lpb2f6d4It may have been a simulated fight, but being able to take down Turles on your own... you feel like you've got a real chance at fighting Vegeta now. But Turles isn't anywhere near as strong as Vegeta is now. You've got some choices coming up.Chuu Lee seems to have hit a breakthrough with her training, getting better results after sustained training of the Raio-Ten. If you're lucky, maybe you can get close enough to Vegeta's level of strength with that training. Closing the gap as much as possible would be a smart move.You could also try developing your skills better. You've trained yourself to get a significant amount of mileage out of your Ki and Magic based techniques. A couple more couldn't hurt. Perhaps there are some physical skills you can try working on as well, even though you've probably gotten a really good combination from your magical enhancements to the combos you already know.On the subject of skills, you could try working with others on improvement. Learning the Instant Transmission from Lapis or Krillin would be a massive benefit in battle. Then there's King Kai's other technique: the Spirit Bomb. Learning it could help you significantly down the road. Plenty of other folks might have some skills you could exchange for, too.(cont.)
>>49132711And then there's the Ki container you and Bulma have started work on. There's a good deal of potential right there, depending on how you develop it. Might be worth looking into some more for the time being.But beyond all this, there's also your kids to consider. Gohan and Peppa have been doing phenomenally with their training, even with the hiccups, but you know they're not even close to their full potential. And it looks like they're starting to really hit their stride. You recall from Puar that Oolong mentioned, jokingly, that they're about the right age to get lessons at the Southern Transformation Kindergarten. But time is a resource you're starting to run out of, with the Tournament up ahead. What should you focus on?>A. Get stronger! You can do it!>B. Time to focus on skills>C. Look to others, get some skills with their help>D. Work with Bulma on the Ki container idea>E. Focus on the kids, they probably need it more than you do>F. Something else?Pick three at most.
>>49132741>>A. Get stronger! You can do it!
>>49132741>>49132741>B. Time to focus on skills>C. Look to others, get some skills with their helpGoku's got the kids for now.
>>49132741>F. Send Gohan and Peppa off to kindergarten, we all have to experience hell sometime
>>49132741>A. Get stronger! You can do it!>C. Look to others, get some skills with their help>F. Ryu-ten training. Or if we can train ryu-ten without putting extra effort in, then >B. As well.
>>49132741>A>CInstant Transmission>E Have them learn a skill from each parent
>>49132865What's a ryu-ten?
>>49132741>B. Time to focus on skills>C. Look to others, get some skills with their help>F. Send the kids off to the Southern Transformation Kindergarten
>>49132841>>49132894Voting for anything but that. Leave the kids out of this dumb transformation thing.
Could we do something with lightning attacks where we leave a sort of "seed" in our opponent that will go off if it's struck by lightning again?>>49132928If they don't socialize with people their age, they'll end up weird.
>>49132865>Ryu-tenAre you doing that on purpose, or can you not read?
>>49132994I'm tired and maybe stupid. What did I miss?
>>49132928Pretty sure it's the only school for kids within the same hemisphere as us.Also, Goku bought a town?
>>49132741>A. Get stronger! You can do it!>GET MAX FORM. THEN WE'LL BE THE STRONGEST EVEEEEER. Also ki control would be helped.>B. Time to focus on skills>C. Look to others, get some skills with their helpI'd rather have Goku train the kids and teach them Grandpa Gohan moves.
>>49133011It's literally in the first post.And the pastebin.
>>49132741>B. Giant Robot>B. Made out of Ki>B. To fight Oozarus in
>>49133064Ki constructs are hard to maintain apperantly. I suggest a war mech down the line.After we learn out to make a battle jacket.I'm down for an oozaru buster, but now is not the time.
>>49133107What if we get Star Power from the audience?
>>49132949They have Videl, Pantea, and their cousin.
>>49133132Videl and Pantea are not their age, and how Izzy's doing on her own as a princess worries me as well, she may get Indigo/Homeschool syndrome or something.
>>49133156In a world where ki/magic/and psionics exist. Wouldn't New Age stuff be...right?
>>49133129http://dragonball.wikia.com/wiki/Ultra_Spirit_BombToo powerful for tourneys.>>49133175Are inherited superiority complexes and little social contact with normal children the right thing in this age for a child with her power?
>>49133156Didn't Chichi say she wanted Izzy to go to a normal school when she's old enough?
>>49133240Oh, she did? Well that's swell. I wonder if she's sending Izzy to Trans School.
>>49133267I am pretty sure that is not a normal school.
>>49133330Puar knows how to use scissors, doesn't she?
>>49133351Puar's a boy.
>>49133362Not in America she ain't!
>>49133400In quest he is confirmed to be a boy
If Peppa and Gohan went to Trans School, they could fight like the Soul Eater people. If Puar was enough to take off an Oozaru's tail, how strong do you think our kids'd be as weapons?>>49133423Quit being Transphobic
As much as I want the kids to be able to polymorph, I feel like Kato really, reeaaaallly doesn't want us to do it.So I gotta vote against it, despite really wanting to get that Space Monkey trick with Gohan we had going .
>>49133435He calls himself a boy.And that idea is dumb.
>>49133466I can put aside personal feelings on the matter if it's something y'all want to do. I've said such before.They may need to roll pretty high to gain such skills, but it's doable.This all said, it doesn't look like it'll be a winning vote.
>>49133466Kato doesn't not want us to do it, she just says it wouldn't be useful what with ki-sensing and all that. I think it'd be a fun parlor trick and chance for the kids to interact with others in their age group.
>>49133547Well our version of Goten can always go to the school then.
>>49133466Who gave you power to vote against anything besides voting for different things? You think this is a thing where vetoes are allowed?
>>49133571Who gave me the power? Liam
>>49133435>Hey Sis, wanna see my awesome sword again? *Acer has done this on many occasions.*>That's real cool, brobro, but check out what my kids can do! *Gohan and Peppa both transform into masterwork weapons that Melchior would admire.*
>>49133571Acting like an asswipe isn't going to do you any favors.
>>49133607That's a black sheep with horns glued to it?
>>49133642I'd rather not use our children to attack people as weapons...Unless...
>>49133664I was hoping anon was just being sarcastic/joking.
>>49132741ACEI want kids to know transformation just so they never have to deal with body image issues. I would kill for that skill...
>>49133709And they could eat all they want without getting fat! Wait a minute...
>>49133709If they are going to have body image problems, it'd probably be from the tails of all things. Hey, transformation could help hide those tails away from enemy attacks while still retaining their utility.
>>49133725I imagine a saiyan/tuffle hybrid has probably a Flash level metabolism.
>>49133749Honestly, it might be from the bulging muscles later in life.You think peppa wants to be pic related? Doubtful.
>>49133778You forget that she's Daddy's Little Girl
>>49133749>transformation could help hide those tails away from enemy attacks while still retaining their utility.That's actually a really good point.I just want the x5 mini oozaru boost. >>49133778I feel like the stronger the woman the least muscular she is in DB.
When I was enrolled in Cub Scouts late I was always pissed that I missed out on being a Wolf Cub and was then-on at the level of Bear Cub (my less favorite animal), so let's ask the kids if they're interested in this opportunity before we dismiss it for them, eh?
>>49133778Bodybuilding is not the same as martial arts training, anon. Especially when Ki skills are factored in.
>>49133842Something I never got is why Super Trunks didn't wipe the floor with Cell by just using Ki attacks if melee wasn't working out for him?
>>49133842Look at goku.Your point is invalid considering his physique later in the series.
>First vote>Intense debateAaaaaahhhh...
>>49133876>intense debate on stuff that doesn't matterftfy>>49133861I wondered why he just didn't stand in one place and have Cell come at him. All Trunks had to do was catch him once.
>>49133868Super Saiyan God debuffs him somewhat, I blame his hugeness on training with ten tons on each limb.
Why is multi-verse's Bra so hot, and why is she taller than Pan?
>>49133942Because she's a Mary Sue.
>>49133956Everyone in that series is part Mary Sue, it's all explained in Mary Sue's backstory.
>>49133896It's important to note that goku isn't merely muscular, but he lacks fat deposits, and looks dehydrated. He's cut, his muscles stand out extremely prominently and sharply. Goku has bodybuilder physique for some reason.
>>49133868>>49133896>>49134029Even then, compare with the pic anon posted.Compare further with those stronger than Goku, including a certain lady.Anyway, looks like the decisions have been made.
>>49134114Arale? I know. It's Towa. Speaking of robo-girl, is she still stronger then us thanks to her gag power?
>>49134114Answer us kato, why is goku dehydrated like a bodybuilder just before a show? Is he secretly extremely sweaty? Do saiyans have trouble absorbi liquids?
>>49134165Towa isn't even a martial artist, she's all magic.
>>49134167I feel like all your knowledge of muscles comes from this.
>>49134201Okay, anonAnything else you want to share with the class?
>>49132741Focusing on getting stronger. That's going to be a clear goal now. And with what Chuu Lee has discovered, you might have a chance at really improving. And you'll have an added bonus of training up the Raio-Ten, too.While doing that, you can try working on some more skills, too. A new melee combo might be a good idea, or you could develop further on Ki attacks. Or maybe could try for some more Magic...And lastly, you've still got skills from others to consider. Learning the Instant Transmission would be just the edge you need in a fight, and incredibly useful in general. But you could also try learning some skills from Piccolo, or maybe Tien, too.Decisions...>A. Melee>B. Ki>C. MagicPick one, and,>D. Krillin and Lapis>E. Piccolo>F. Tien>G. Someone else?Pick one.
>>49134294>A. MeleeWe need to keep from becoming a glass cannon.>D. Krillin and LapisGet us that sweet IT.We can just tag Vegeta and IT him right out of the ring if need be.
>>49134294>C. Magic>D. Krillin and Lapis
>>49133868Pretty sure Peppa would look more like this than her dad.
>>49134381At least she'll be taller then us.Probably have a bigger bust too.
>>49134381Wellthis gives me ideas.
>>49134381Holy fuck what the hellIs that one of those bugs that disguise themselves as sticks?This motherfucker looks like a goddamn twigToriyama why
>>49134467He got tired of the bodybuilder moosles
>>49134467Why?Because.Fuck you, that's why.

>>49134673>>49134676>>49134684>>49134776>>49134858Perfect!Before I continue, is there any specific kind of Ki technique y'all have in mind, or should I just put in one I've been thinking on?
>>49134927What were you thinking of?I have like....thousands of techniques in mind but I'd rather hear your idea.
>>49134927I want a containment/restraint move.Like an orb that we can condense around someone, smaller and smaller...
>>49134927Let's hear it Boss-Lady
>>49134996Couldn't we do that with our bit barrier?
So is anyone reconsidering send the kids off to the Transformation Kindergarten with the tidbit about they'll have a way to conceal their tails (their biggest weakpoints right now) from opponents' attacks?
>>49134927Improving our raioten/kiaoken combo would be nice.
>>49134927I want to practice Ki Control/Constructing by making flying skulls or wraith-like things.
>>49135070YeahCould be good
>>49134927How about a technique that will sort of magnetize electricity attacks to an opponent?
>>49134927What if we could turn the Spirit Bits into Stakes that leech energy off of an opponent to prolong the Bit's existence?
>>49134927What if we narrowed the "nozzle" of our kamehameha to make it shoot out more focused and more powerfully?
>>49135262We'll have to enhance it with water magic first.
>>49134967>>49135015https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZkDT-OlkYTIWith the Spirit Bits.>>49134996Maybe.>>49135034Basically, yes.>>49135081That would be a very, very good idea.>>49135090Maybe.>>49135181Might not be as effective as you think.>>49135206You don't know how to do that.>>49135262Maybe.Anyone else have ideas?
>>49134927Is there a way to use the Kaioken on an afterimage and not our body to where that afterimage will explode?
>>49135318Raioten Kaioken combo has my vote.
>>49135318Raiokai vote for me.
>>49135262So we narrow it with two hand-wielded Bit Barrier/Gates that also enhance the attack as well as focus it?
>>49135318So the Twilight Spark you're suggesting is using a Tribeam Cannon that uses only what the Spirit Bits will give?
>>49135318Raio-Ten + Kaio-ken improvement works for me.
>>49135318Mmmh. Interesting technique.We'll be able to change the name, yes?Because Twilight Spark [sounds like a certain violet pony voiced by Tara Strong.
>>49135318How fast does our Ki regenerate if we focus on it, and how is this speed affected by multi-form clones?
>>49135398Something similar to that, yes.>>49135413Of course.
>>49135416You don't know multi-form.
>>49135413let's call it the Maplejack Flash
>>49135474You didn't answer either question.
>>49135318Raioten kaioken for me.
>>49135413>>49135458Triple Terrifizer, an attack that uses three Spirit Gates all linked together to form one big one that is shot through by a Tribeam Cannon.
>>49135500Charging Ki takes a full action, and how much you can get back depends on your opponent. A stunned enemy will potentially let you get a good chunk of your Ki back.You don't know multi-form, so that is a moot point.
>>49135458Hmm. Tough choice.We won't lose the chance to get this move?Because I'm thinking the raio-ten/kaioken combo will be our bread and butter in this Vegeta fight. As well as future fights past Vegeta.>>49135480I was thinking something along the lines of...>Tyrannic Blazing Roaring Dragon Exploding Flash Demon God Air Cleaving Maple Fist.
>>49135588You won't lose the chance to learn it, but focusing on the Raio-Ten Kaio-Ken combo will take up your technique focus until the Tournament.
>>49135621What does this sound like in Engrish?
All right, five minutes, give this a choice:Raio-Ten Kaio-Ken combo, or Twilight Spark (Name Pending)?
Rolled 1 (1d2)>>491357131=Raio-Taio-Kren2=Spooky Scarifying Spark Mark III

>>49135995You seem to have neglected this little guy over here>>49135911
>>49135921Props to you, anon
>>49136018He didn't put the +100 on, so it doesn't count.
>>49136035The fuck is that bullshit? It's easy to figure out, its linked to the right post. So what if you don't put in a mod? It doesnt even show the total unless its more than one dice rolled.Before I get accused of trying to change shit to be favorable, this set of rolls doesnt have crits I don't believe, and the unmodded roll wouldnt have been the highest by a longshot.
>>49136018Guess I did. Oh well, looks like it didn't matter in the end.
>>49136146>looks like it didn't matter in the end.https://youtu.be/Fz3TooCCB1M
>>49134294https://youtu.be/C54YRQZfqDQYou focus hard on training yourself up in the next few months, Goku still training with you, but giving greater focus on the kids' improvement, to the point where you almost think he's being a bit overconfident about the upcoming Tournament. With all the training you put in, though, and a little time training yourself in the restored Gravity Chamber, you feel like you've gotten all you can out of this new regime. Adding to that, you've reached a new height with the Raio-Ten and Kaio-ken combination.Kaio-ken times five.And that's not all, you've worked with the skill enough that, while still straining, you could reasonably sustain it for a fight. Going to need a lot of time to recover afterwards, though, so can't spam the technique. Still, all this training has brought you up to a Power Level of...Just barely above 5 million.And lastly, during your training, you head to Lapis again to try and if he and Krillin can help you learn the Instant Transmission technique. Unlike your previous attempt, you do indeed manage it. To celebrate, you can't help but show off juuuuust a little. You take a quick trip to Master Roshi's, scaring the hell out of him and Turtle when you arrive seemingly out of nowhere.The Turtle Hermit stumbles, half-dressed and looking like he's getting ready for something. "M-MAPLE, WHERE'D-""Hey dad, got a date with Annin going?" you ask innocently.He picks himself up, grumbling. "Trying to get ready for it, yes."You smile, placing two fingers on your forehead to focus. "Well, good luck with it. See ya!" He nearly stumbles over again as you teleport away, returning to Krillin and Lapis. "Perfect! I've got it down!"(cont.)
>>49136765The two of them... aren't as pleased as they were before you left. You see Lapis rubbing his chin contemplatively. "Well, glad it worked, Maple.""...something up?"He sighs. "My sister went with Chiaotzu and Raditz to Planet Brench a while back. Apparently Jaco came around not too long ago with a less than pleasant message, seems there's been some fighting there. Sis said she'd do anything she could to help, Chiaotzu went with her, and Raditz kinda... ended up stuck with them on the trip.""We'll be heading off soon. I don't like the fact that things have been so quiet over the last couple months. You take care, Maple." Krillin states, readying himself.>A. Wait, let me help!>B. Ah, sure, you guys take care! Don't hesitate to ask for help, we'll be ready>C. Something else?
>>49136776>C. Chiaotzu be tryin' to get with Lazuli, y'know what I'm sayin'
>>49136776>C. Something else?Wait! Lemme teach you the fusion dance so you and Chiaotzu can fuse!
>>49136776>C. Hey Krillin, wanna fuse with lil' ol' me?
>>49136875KRIPLE! KRIPLE! KRIPLE!
>>49136929Why are you replying to >>49136875 ?
>>49136875ThisTeach the midget how to fuse
>>49136989Go do something productive like actually winning a vote maybe?
>>49136989I veto your nah.So I nah, your nah.NAH NAH NAH NAAAAAHEY HEY HEYGOOD BYE
>>49137051But did you win?
>>49136776>B. Ah, sure, you guys take care! Don't hesitate to ask for help, we'll be ready
>>49137082Nobody's winning yet
>>49137127I always win when I get to hang out with all of you anons and Kato!
>>49137127Looks to me like fuse wins
>>49136776"Wait, Krillin, before you go, do you know the fusion-""Dance, yeah. Come on, Maple, you think I've been sitting on my butt the whole time?" he asks with a laugh. "Lapis and I can handle this, hopefully see you guys soon."You nod. "Well, you two take care. Don't hesitate to ask for help, plenty of us will be willing to give it!"And with that, they're off. Well, you've got the skill down, but what next?>A. Head home, spend some time with the kids and Goku>B. Try and find Vegeta, see if he's tried to go to Baba on that Super Saiyan thing>C. You know, might be now would be a good time to try a Pendulum Room match against Freeza, or maybe Cooler>D. Something else?
>>49137509>A. Head home, spend some time with the kids and Goku
>>49137509>D. Something else?Can we talk to Konpei and see if he has any special training rooms to help us in his sacred lands?
>>49137509>D. "Hmph, didn't even feel like fusing with you to begin with.">Scuff some dirt, accidentally end up making a fissure>"woops">C. You know, might be now would be a good time to try a Pendulum Room match against Freeza, or maybe CoolerLet's go fight Frieza directly after he sees us win against his son in that race, and say something to the effect of, "Why are you so surprised I'm here, am pretty fast don'tcha know"
>>49137509Go to the fountain of youth to test your mettle against the kaiju. And get a sample of water for testing with bulma later!
>>49137608Super Godzilla would kick our ass.I wonder if Godzilla and Gamera will be at the tournament...Course that leaves the water unguarded of it's two strongest guards.Excellent chance for anyone to...pop in. I can totally see Towa spoiling that with that nasty concentrated black water stuff that Beelz showed us
>>49137509>C. You know, might be now would be a good time to try a Pendulum Room match against Freeza, or maybe CoolerLet's deck Freezie Pop in the face.
>>49137657Almost certainly, he would.But it's a chance to test ourself against a truly powerful foe who has tricks we probably don't know about yet, no?Plus, I wanna see how they're doing. Maybe see if we can make them some radical clothes, like a basketball uniform for the big g-z.
>>49137690>Super Godzilla performs a Chaos Dunk using towa's minion as the ball>Towa feels the burn of being served for all eternity
>>49137690We'll need to train with Charles Barkley and get a magic coin too.
You know, we ought to move the divine water to the same area as the fountain of youth, and transport darkness over there. That way, both items always have a guard (darkness) even when the kaiju are out, and darkness has folks to regularly interact with. Plus, double the traffic. And better defenses for both.
>>49138017Maybe if we were the Planet Guardian I'd be interested in doing any of that?
>>49138017Should've probably had a guard for the senzu bean fields too.>>49138049We're best buddies with not one but basically all the deities of Earth. We could probably just ask them to reinforce the defense systems. Just incase Towa has something planned for the current ones.
>>49138049But anon, wedo guard the earth.EARTHDEFENSEFORCEE.D.F FOR SHORT.
>>49138104We're not a super defense force though.Just a normal, plane jane global defense force.
>>49137509You frown a little. Probably could have helped them. Ah, oh well, they'll be fine. You tap your fingers to your forehead again and head home, specifically to Goku. When you arrive, you barely have time to dodge a Power Pole headed straight for your face. You duck out of the way, pushing back into Goku. He blinks, then laughs. "Heh, hey Maple. Looks like you finally got that skill down.""Sorry mama!" Peppa's voice shouts, your daughter moving the Power Pole out of the way.You spot Gohan sitting nearby, reading through a book with Groucho curled around next to him, setting it down and waving to you. You yourself float down with Goku. "Well well, practicing with the Power Pole, sweetie?"She smiles wide and nods. "Papa's teachin' me."Goku ruffles her hair. "And you're getting better and better at it. Oh, hey, Peppa, show your mom what else you learned."She gets an ecstatic look on her face, retracting the Power Pole and setting it down, taking a stance like her dad. "Haaaa..." You sense Ki build up around her, travel to her palms. And then... "JAN! KEN! ROCK!" she punches in the air, letting out a small burst of Ki. "SCISSORS!" And a two-fingered poke, with the same burst, slightly more focused than the last. "PAPER!" And she finishes it off with a palm strike, a much stronger burst of Ki pushing outwards.You feel a little nostalgic. The Ki Jan Ken technique you developed. Goku kneels down to his daughter, fist forward. "That's my lil' Peppa." he states as she bumps it gently with her own. "Gohan learned it even quicker, too!" he adds, your son smiling shyly.>A. Great job, sweeties, anything else you two've been learning?>B. Well kids, wanna learn a skill from mama next?>C. Say, Gohan, what're you reading there?>D. Something else?

>>49138152>>49138249Yeah, sureI too hope they say yes, but no biggie if they say noI kinda wanna see them stray a bit from our path, and trans school would do just that

>>49138249Dude did you learn nothing from Chuckles quest? You are going to get shapeshifting Cell for a lame ability.
>>49138400This isn't his quest, and they might not even use the technique outside of simply having fun.
>>49138152>A. Great job, sweeties, anything else you two've been learning?>B. Well kids, wanna learn a skill from mama next?>C. Say, Gohan, what're you reading there?
>>49138400If Towa and Gero really want shapeshifting, they have ALLLLL the other students to steal it from, whether or not our kids learn it is irrelevant to your fears.
>>49138535They literally HAVE AN ENTIRE SCHOOL for them to sample.Plus Puar and Oolong have been around us long enough that Gero and Towa should've already known about it.Besides. We have a Majin who can transform anyway.
>>49138562>>49138535Churai is also a shapeshifter, though she is an infiltration agent, not a fighter.
>>49138578ExactlyThey know all about it already, no harm in letting our kids have it for funsiesPeppa can be gohan for halloweenAnd gohan can be UNCLE RADITZ
>>49138578I still say she's Towa's attempt at making a Maple.

>>49138152You kneel down to them. "Great job, sweeties. Now, anything else you two have learned?" you ask sweetly, Peppa nearly running to you as you do."I learned this!" she shouts, backflipping, and then building up Ki again. This time, though, it moves to her tail, and she gives a strong slash with it. She shivers slightly, then manages to shake it offYou're a little surprised, then turn to Goku. "She ask for that, monkey boy?""Eheh, kinda. While we were training with the Power Pole, I blocked it with that, and she immediately wanted to learn how to do it." he says with the cheekiest grin. "Looks like she needs to train her tail more, though.""And what about you, Gohan?"Your son points to his book. "Been reading.""Ah, and what book you got there?" you ask, heading to him. He shows you... oh hey! It's that old Capsule Corp. history book you got waaaaay back when you arrived here. "Huh, wanted to learn about that, did you?"He nods. "You're really smart, mama, and so is uncle Acer, and Mrs. Bulma, and Pantea. I wanna be smart too." he states shylyYou ruffle his red hair. "You'll be plenty smart, son. But glad to see you working on it already." You then stand tall and clap your hands together. "You know kids, after the Tournament you two are gonna be about ready for Kindergarten. And Oolong and Puar have gone to one when they were your age. It's where they also learned how to shapeshift. Think you want to head there, or try going with your cousin Izzy to a more local one?"(cont.)
>>49139127"IZZY!" Peppa nearly screams. "Kindagarden! Kindagarden! Gonna go to kindagarden! With Izzy, with Izzy!" she chants, dancing a little.Well, that's one answer. Gohan however... considers it. "Hm..." He looks down at his book, scratching his head. "Much more complicated than Capsule... but maybe..." He then looks at his cheerful, dancing sister. "...no thank you, mama. I'll stick with sis." he finishes, smiling at you.Well, you gave them the choice. You giggle a little. "Okay kids, how about mama teaches you something this time? Papa already got his shot at it.""Mama! Mama! Wanna learn this one!" Peppa shouts, making a gun-shape with her hand and giving little "pew pew, pchoo" sounds.Gohan, on the other hand, has a different request. "I wanna be fast. Teacher Chuu Lee told me you and papa can go really, really fast like her."Ah, the Raio-ken. Well, sounds like Chuu Lee didn't take them to Mount Rumble, but probably for good reason.>A. Son, you're a little too young for that...>B. All right, let's give it a shot, kids!>C. The Geist Magnum is fine for them>D. What about the Clothes Beam?>E. Well kids, mama also learned how to use magic with her regular techniques, wanna try that too?>F. Something else?
>>49139151Gee, what did I expect?Only natural for Kato to go in the direction she unsubtly and extremely heavily leaned towards.
>>49139127>or try going with your cousin Izzy to a more local one?"Wow, way to pull the entire issue out from under us by not providing us with this information on where Izzy's going to school.
>>49139151>D. What about the Clothes Beam?>E. Well kids, mama also learned how to use magic with her regular techniques, wanna try that too?
>>49139151>A. Son, you're a little too young for that...>C. The Geist Magnum is fine for them
>>49139151You wanna give us a bit of warning next time you're going to make a thing we vote for a moot point with details known to our character but not to us?
>>49139151>F. Something else?>Give Gohan the magic tome to read."What's say, you learn a move from this and if you master it I'll take you to Mt. Rumble myself."
>>49139151So let's talk with Acer about what school Izzy's headed to before we bring up an ultimatum of "Izzy or Shapeshifting." You do possess tact and forethought, right?
>>49139235Evidently you don't, or you wouldn't continue trying to force this.
>>49139151>C. The Geist Magnum is fine for them>>49139179>>49139201Stop being salty.
>>49139179>>49139183>>49139201>>49139233>>49139235Goddamn you guys are upset as fuck aren'tcha.
>>49139151>C. The Geist Magnum is fine for them>F. Give Gohan the magic tome to readGood. I'm glad.
>>49139249>GM acts biased for long period of time regarding (x)>Gives opinion on (x) many times, states displeasure with it>This in no way could possibly influence gm's decision
>>49139246Kato's cheating us by withholding info about what we vote for, making our votes pointless and is wasting our time. I don't much care for that.
>>49139279Yes, it did influence it.It's not your world, your quest, or your decision.If Kato doesn't want the kids to learn shapeshifting, this is a good way to go about it.Get over it.
>>49139279And? It's her call.>>49139280It was a write in famalam. There's a reason it was never given as a prompt.
>>49139280Eh. I don't want our kids hanging out with filthy muggles myself.WE NEED A SPECIAL SCHOOL FOR OUR SPECIAL BABIES.
>>49139298It's not a good way at all, and your opinion regarding how a quest should be run is shit.The Gm must be impartial. The Gm must not influence player decisions out of the narrative. The Gm must not show bias in any decision - when there are doubts that this is possible, use dice.
>>49139151Okay, so what's wrong with seeing if Izzy wants to go to shape shifting school with her cousins? Why did you have us phrase it as an ultimatum?
Welp. We've got another in-story meme to float around and annoy one another with.>SCHOOOOOOOOOOOOLS
>>49139303>>49139298>Being this betaWew, ladsAre you expecting kato to suck you off for your support?
>>49139318Careful there, that way of thinking can lead to extreme loathing of ningen and ningen accessories.
>>49139336She has control over the NPCs. They said no. Deal.Well I say deal, but I know this playerbase has some of the most immature children I have ever seen in a quest so I know you won't stop until you've drawn us into an inane argument that's going to last 300 posts.
>>49139336Yeah, no. That kind of expectation is an extremely selfish thing for a player to have. QMs, GMs, they're supposed to have fun with their games too. Otherwise why would they spend hours upon hours providing us with this escape? Forcing QMs to write something they don't want to is the single fastest way to kill a quest.
>>49139183It was already brought up a few threads ago. Chi-chi stated that she's been looking at schools for Izzy to get into, and hoped that Peppa and Gohan could one day come with. None of this information was hidden from you.This was an in-character action to bring up.Even if it weren't, I rolled earlier in the thread for a reason, anon.You left it up to them. Gohan showed interest, but would prefer to stick with his sister.
>>49139390NopeI'm honestly just gonna leave the quest. It repeatedly failed to show good decisions on the QM's part, and a portion of the playerbase defends these bad decisions no matter what. Stay cuck, enjoy your dying and subpar quest, and have a good day, pal
>>49139410>an extremely selfish thing for a player to haveyou do know this quest is riddled with manchildren, right?
>>49139390The way she presented that opportunity through our character was... bad. She made it an either-or thing when all of the cousins could go to shapeshifting school together. In fact, I'll bet money that Izumi would get envious of her monkey cousins getting to learn a magic when she's at regular kindergarten, and would beg to go over and join them.
>>49139151>F. Do they already know foresight? They'll need that if they wanna try for the Raio-Ten...>E. Well kids, mama also learned how to use magic with her regular techniques, wanna try that too?>DramaPretty sure we already had our chance, guys. We chose to focus on getting Male gud instead.
>>49139437>I didn't get my way, I-I'm leaving the quest forever, y-your quest is dying a-and shit and you're just a c-cuck, abloobleeblooblooSee you next week.
>>49139417So bring it up when we're about to vote on it, is that so hard?
I'm having a wonderful time everyone. <3
Well at least the decision is over with.
>>49139490Would that change anything?
I just want to know if the guy that said it was no biggie if they said no is part of the bitch storm.
>>49139490At this point I think anons will just vote it down out of spite, just to move on.That tends to be the trend.
>>49139539Vote down the...information some had forgotten?
>>49139525Yes, it would make our decision informed instead of ultimately unnecessary from lack of knowledge. Also, you could at least tell us what our character's going to say before you have her say it, no one brought up anything about Izzy besides what you remembered and didn't share with the rest of us.
>>49139437You're not behaving in a mature manner, anon. Using "cuck" is a clear example of this. And I know you're still here.
>>49139564I remembered it anon.
>>49139564What would that have changed? Maybe a subvote to have our character deceive her kids by deliberately not mentioning that the cousin they love is going somewhere local? That's the only thing I can think of.
>>49139564Man I want to see you QM and literally give every single minuscule detail that the MC knows to the players and tell them what they are going to say with a 'I-is this o-okay Player-samas?'
>>49139623Player-sama: NO! Now I'm going to bitch for three hours about inane shit that YOU SHOULD DO BECAUSE YOU SERVE ME!CATER TO ME. CATER TO ONLY MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
>>49139613A subvote to change her mind on the whole offer or discuss if with their aunt and uncle.>>49139612You didn't share, so what good did that knowledge really do in the end?
>>49139410No, he makes sense, anon. Speaking as a forever-DM, you really do have to stay impartial to not impede the fun of the group. Without the group there is no game. Besides, if you're the kind of person who lets yourself get bent out of shape over players making a decision or wanting things to go a particular way, then you shouldn't be running at all. A good GM can get plenty of enjoyment out of shaping the world, determining the overall plot, and seeing how the players interact with it all. I love it dearly when players do both smart things and detrimental things.Being a GM is never about being the big boss who forces people into your way. It's a shared effort, a collaborative story. It's perfectly acceptable to remain neutral, and let the whims of the players steer things a bit.I do understand your point of view, but it seems immature to assume you can't have fun by doing things this way.
>>49139637>You didn't shareS'not my job to share with the class on everything. I don't do my home work and then hand out the notes to everyone around me if they didn't do it. Hell. I've got enough info about Tuffle Quest for notes and such that I'm pretty sure it would take an entire thread of my own just to go over them.
>>49139564The information was always there.If I said that they'd say no, I am certain there would still be a cry foul.
>>49139676Cool, bear in mind all those notes are useless to the rest of us when they aren't shared, as is your continued stance on that information.
>>49139699The information was always there in a thread from four weeks ago that was like one line. Was it dialogue, or one of your summaries that you do?
>>49139705He never said he wanted to be useful to you, anon. It's a quest, a perpetual struggle for factional dominance with loyalties changing every hour.
I like how the current argument is about knowing information ahead of time, which we did have, but if salty anons even remembered the outcome would have been the same.
>>49139646So we keep pressuring the QM to do something she has made clear that she doesn't want to do, and when presented with an option of letting NPCs decide, get upset when things don't go exactly how we want, even after we've down the decision once already?
>>49139724Half a post of dialogue involved it, anon.Are you going to be able to move on?
>>49139705I can share them if you'd like. I did have stuff going all the way back to Dragon Ball Tuffle Quest but that got ate up. Hell. Next quest I'll put what I've got in a pastebin and share it.
>>49139804Will you tell me if you left a banana peel in front of me before I move on?
>>49139828You'd probably yell at her for not letting it be your decision to not see the peel and slip on it.
>>49139795The principle of complete impartiality by the DM and cooperating with the players is absolutely fine. I also agree with this sentiment.But using it as fodder for the purposes of arguing that a GM is biased against a certain decision when the players left it up to NPC decision (i.e. dice rolls, etc.) isn't such a good thing.
>>49139820Sounds neat! I'll be looking forward to it, just like I'll be looking forward to that dragonball genie quest.GENIE QUEST QM, WHERE THE FUCK ARE YOU
>>49139852How could I do that when we can see the future
>>49139820That'd be extremely awesome if you did that, anon. It'd help us recall important information in vital times (like learning the MP buster in the previous thread), or remember other stuff like neat concepts to use for techniques.
>>49139887Infinite number of future realities.Infinite number of banana peels to slip or not slip on.
>>49139828I question why you are walking into the trash in the first place.
>>49139911Because I didn't see it when you put it there.
>>49139893I'll take it one step further and even go back through previous threads, go through all 7,240 questions asked (I think at least a thousand of those are mine) and compile my notes for characters, events and try to even write up a good 'bio' for Maple and Acer.I'm not the greatest writer in the world, but I love Tuffle Quest so much I'll do it.
>>49139795Look at the following line, anon:>...if you're the kind of person who lets yourself get bent out of shape over players making a decision or wanting things to go a particular way, then you shouldn't be running at all.If it's so intensely negative for her, then she simply shouldn't be running a quest that can invove such a scenario. I should point out, though, that it's particularly strange for it to be unpleasant for her at all. It's just an ordinary scenario of the players wanting their progeny to pick up a unique, otherwise impossible to earn skill.In the end, if you can't perform the task of being an impartial DM/GM/QM who still enjoys themselves with whatever the players do, then....don't be one? Pretty simple. Be a player instead. Or get anoher hobby. There's lots of alternatives out there.I should note that I'm neither for nor against the decision made here, I just want to argue that impartiality is important and necessary since it was a subject in debate.
>>49139646Yeah, okay, I get you, but still, I don't think that kind of GMing is for everyone, and that not every GM should be held to that style. I still attest that it's selfish to expect *every* GM to be like that (The GM must be X, the GM must be Y), even if it's not necessarily with GMs that choose to be like that.>if you're the kind of person who lets yourself get bent out of shape over players making a decision or wanting things to go a particular way, then you shouldn't be running at allThis situation isn't really bent out of shape, I don't think. More that the GM had NPCs react in a way PCs didn't expect, with some differences (disagreement was sparked by one of the PC's own words not deliberately voted on) due to the inherent differences between a quest and a tabletop.
>>49139820Actually anon, I would greatly appreciate it if you could do that for us. I still have a ton of notes I go through for every thread, but I'm sure I've left out some things that could be helpful later on.
Man, I fucking hate the new dragonball theme song. And they seriously need to retire CHALA HEAD CHALA, that song is garbage.
>>49139965Well I have been using the Tuffle-verse characters as inspiration for my own...original dough nut steal ropleplays so, really I do owe you a lot. I had to head canon the fuck out of the Tuffle-Saiyan Civil War though.
Look, having Destron—my father was a great professor and scientist and engineer, Dr. Blanch Raichi at PIT; good genes, very good genes, OK, very smart, the Watermelon School of Finance, very good, very smart—you know, if you’re head scientist, if I were a general, if, like, OK, if I worked as a general of the Tuffle Forces, they would say I'm one of the greatest people anywhere in the universe—it’s true!—but when you're the head scientist they try—oh, do they do a number—that’s why I always start off: Went to Watermelon, was a good student, went there, went there, did this, built a fortune—you know I have to give my like credentials all the time, because we’re a little disadvantaged—but you look at the Destron deal, the thing that really bothers me—it would have been so easy, and it’s not as important as these lives are (Destron is powerful; my father explained that to me many, many years ago, the power and that was many years ago; he would explain the power of what's going to happen and he was right—who would have thought?), but when you look at what's going on with the four hybrids—now it used to be three, now it’s four—but when it was three and even now, I would have said it's all in the messenger; fellas, and it is fellas because, you know, they don't, they haven’t figured that the men are smarter right now than the women, so, you know, it’s gonna take them about another 150 years—but the Arcosians are great negotiators, the Saiyans are great negotiators, so, and they, they just killed, they just killed us.

Though, guess this is something you should have seen coming, given what you heard when you... anyway. You come up with an idea, first materializing a small tome for Gohan to learn out of. "But tell you what, if you can get through all this, and master it, mama will take you to Mount Rumble."His initially sad expression brightens when you give him the task. He nods with a wide smile on his face as he takes the book. "Thanks mama!"Peppa tugs at your pants. "Me too?"You ruffle her hair. "Sure sweetie. This said, you two wanna learn the Geist Magnum, huh?" you ask, making a gun shape with your fingers. "Ah, but there's more to it than that. Watch this." You add a bit of Lightning to the technique, and then fire into the air.Gohan and Peppa are immediately enamored. "Wooooah!"Goku laughs. "Ah, that good 'ol magic enhancement, huh?"""Buuuut of course!" you respond, taking a bow. "Well kids, want to try that?"They start nodding emphatically.

Can Gohan wield Rainbow if he does good?
>>49140657https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TFGY-PciwFUAnd so, you help Gohan and Peppa work on learning the Geist Magnum first, and then how to enhance the technique with Magic. The attack is almost too easy for them, as they end up acing the skill almost immediately. Brings a smile to your face.The magic is a bit harder, and for a while they just can't quite figure out how to utilize it properly, but after some careful demonstration...Gohan raises his hand into the air, building up Ki at the tip of his finger. And then... he gets some Lightning magic built up there as well. "GEIST MAGNUM!" he shouts, firing.Peppa does the same as her brother, a swirling, spiral of Ki and Magic building up at her fingertip, shouting "GEIST MAGNUM" out as she fires.They did it.The kids join hands and dance with each other, cheering happily... only to be interrupted by a falling pterodactyl.
