Emperor Pilaf made a wish to Shenron, receiving a paper that shows the lineage of the Mifan Emperors and revealing that Vegeta’s son is a potential heir! Then you worked with Tien to help learn how to take the next step on the Noble Eightfold Path, seeing the confrontation against Raichi and Hatchiyak that your future self had... and how in spite of your best efforts, you and your brother failed, just like the Gohan from the Future said. Months later...
>>1038894“And you have no idea where they’ve ended up?” you question, scratching the top of your head.“Not even Baba could find them.” Launch sighs out. “This just reeks of Towa.”“But what’s she got planned for a bunch of criminals?” Goku asks, looking over to his son and daughter playing with Pantea.“Proooobably something she sees as ironic, clever, nefarious, and a thing that will further the sick and twisted game she tries to play with us.” Yamcha comments, finishing a cup of tea. “You know, the usual.”This is a strange situation. Jailbreaks all over the Earth, but while most people trying to run were quickly caught... there are a few that were never caught. But there’s one that seems to be worrying Launch the most.Hasky.>A. What about me and Acer? Think that we could help locate them?>B. Well, maybe we can go through some of the older places we’ve encountered Towa and her cohorts, see if there are any clues we’ve missed>C. Have... you seen any improvement with Hasky, before she escaped?>D. Something else?
>>1038902No Zelda this year? - -
>>1038902Woot Tuffle quest>B.>C.
>>1038928Zelda soon. Just been recovering from a particularly nasty cold. Been going around my area, and looks like I caught it early since some coworkers started calling in sick yesterday.Also damn, Breath of the Wild really might push us to get a new console.
>>1038902>B. Well, maybe we can go through some of the older places we’ve encountered Towa and her cohorts, see if there are any clues we’ve missed>C. Have... you seen any improvement with Hasky, before she escaped?
>>1038902>A. What about me and Acer? Think that we could help locate them?>B. Well, maybe we can go through some of the older places we’ve encountered Towa and her cohorts, see if there are any clues we’ve missed
Kato, what'd ya think of Broly
>>1038938>Breath of the WildIt makes me wonder if I should get a Switch sooner or later. It also makes me very sad that Dragon's Dogma is not likely to get another single-player game in the future.
>>1038954Poor Princess Trunks. Also good on TFS for getting that much out of that movie, must have been a real chore.>>1038955Wife and I are probably gonna put away some money for it, since there are a few games announced for it that we'll want. Mario Odyssey in particular caught her interest.Anyway, writing...
>>1038902Well... you and Acer have been able to locate things Towa’s stolen before, but something tells you she’s planning on that. Then again... “Here’s an idea: maybe if we look at some of the places we’ve encountered her or her goons before, we can get some clues.”“Or she’ll show up to taunt us and you can try and pry some info out of her.” Yamcha adds.“That’s a start.” Goku states with a wide grin, standing up and stretching.Let’s see... well, two places stick out to you. Wheelo’s Lab, if it’s still intact, and that place you encountered Lucifer again by Basil Town. Those might be good starting off points. You turn to Launch first, before mentioning them. “Say, uh... did... well, did you start to see any improvement with Hasky before she escaped?”The blonde woman looks down, sighing again. “Barely more than marginal. She stopped trying to go to that bar after every attempt, at least.”“It’s something.” you say softly. Okay, time for a plan.>A. We’ll split up and search two different places (what teams?)>B. Let’s stick together and head to... (Wheelo’s Lab/Basil Town)>C. Someone should stay here with the kids, just in case>D. Something else?
>>1039038>B. Let’s stick together and head to... (Wheelo’s Lab/Basil Town)Basil Town first.
>>1039038>. Let’s stick together and head to... (Wheelo’s Lab/Basil Town)Wheelo's lab
Rolled 1 (1d2)>>1039038>B.1 = Wheelo2 = Basil Town
>>1039137Oh, and Wheelo's.
>>1039038“Let’s head to Wheelo’s Lab. I’ve got a bit of a hunch that we’ll find something there.”Launch raises an eyebrow. “Why there?”You cross your arms. “Brobro and I have previously encountered Towa there, and while she and Gero probably cleaned out most of the area back then, I bet if we look hard enough, we can find something they might’ve missed. Something that might give us a clue. After all, Wheelo was involved with Towa and Gero way back when he went around capturing people.”Goku grins. “Heh, sounds like a plan, Maple.”Yamcha stands. “I’m coming too. Might be a good idea to stretch my legs a bit.”All right, Launch, Goku, Yamcha, and yourself... and you know there are three pairs of eyes staring at you, about to ask if they can tag along.>A. Peppa, Gohan, Pantea, you’re staying here at Capsule Corp, okay?>B. They’ll be fine if they stick close to your group, they can come along>C. Something else?
>>1039261>B. They’ll be fine if they stick close to your group, they can come alongI don't really want them to come, but they will follow anyway, so we better keep an eye on them.
>>1039261>B.>C.If Bulma and Yamcha are okay with it.
>>1039278I'll second this too.
>>1039261“I know you’re there, kids.” you comment, not even turning your head. “Pantea, ask your mom and dad first.”Yamcha looks to his daughter, then calls out to Bulma. “I’ll keep her safe, promise!”“You better!” she shouts in return. “And keep yourself safe too, Yamcha!”“Hey, come on, it’s only going to an abandoned, desolate, mad scientist lab up in the Arctic. What’s the worst that could happen?” Yamcha laughs out.“Magil’s ghost haunting there?” Goku speculates.“Magic genie monsters!” Peppa adds.“Space Pirates!” Pantea pipes in.Yamcha frowns at the three of them, giving an obviously faked look of betrayal towards his daughter. You and Launch chuckle. “You’re only doing this because you know they’d come anyway, aren’t you?” the blonde woman asks you.“Oh they’d probably listen if I said ‘no,’ but better to keep them close, just in case.”Using Instant Transmission, you search for a Ki closer to the north and teleport to it with everyone holding on, surprising a bear person for a moment before flying off towards Wheelo’s lab. And already, the kids are shivering because of the temperature difference.Looks like it’s mostly intact, and nothing all that suspicious at first glance. Though you’re sensing... something. Something is there, and hiding its Ki.>A. Pantea, you should use the Clothes Beam for yourself if you’re that cold>B. Tell the kids about circulating Ki, like Tien taught you all those years ago>C. Stick with the kids while everyone searches, stay behind a bit>D. Try and contact whoever is there, maybe they’re friendly>E. Something else?
>>1039508“Pantea, if you’re that cold, maybe you should use the Clothes Beam for yourself.” you comment to the girl, then looking to Gohan and your daughter. Looks like they haven’t quite learned the trick Tien taught you yet, all those years ago.Pantea quickly poofs up a thick coat for herself, then notices you looking to your kids, and poofs up matching ones for them next, smiling sweetly. Yamcha looks to her proudly before walking forward with Launch and Goku, you staying behind with the kids. That Ki you sensed is still there... seems to be moving. Almost like it’s observing your group.“So, it’s not just me that’s sensing that, right?” Yamcha questions.“Doesn’t seem hostile, whatever it is.” Goku points out.Well, he’s right. It’s not making any moves against you just yet, and while it’s close, it’s definitely keeping itself hidden. Launch forms a small sphere of Ki to serve as a light as you travel down deeper. You end up where... well, you confronted Piccolo for the first time all those years ago, under Wheelo’s control.Heh, Vegeta probably would’ve hated that guy.Launch and Yamcha look around, Goku sticking by you and the kids. Pantea places her hands behind her head and comments to Gohan, “Reminds me of the Wrecked Ship a bit with all this architecture.”“Though we haven’t had to shoot any doors to open them yet.” your son responds.You and Goku turn to the kids and let out a soft “Huh?”The two of them smile innocently. “Oh, just some videogames we play after we’re done with our studies.” Pantea replies.Yamcha laughs. “Yeah yeah, no Space Pirates here, kid-”A panel on one of the consoles near where he’s standing opens up, a small blue figure briefly visible before it runs off. Wait a second... was that one of Wheelo’s knockoff Saibamen?>A. Call to it, they’re supposed to be intelligent, right?>B. Try and read the thing’s mind>C. Let Launch and Yamcha handle this>D. ...why would you shoot a door to open it? That seems like a terribly designed door>E. Something else?
>>1039852>Gohan and Pantea play Metroid togetherHah. Cute.>A. Call to it
>>1039852>A. Call to it, they’re supposed to be intelligent, right?>B. Try and read the thing’s mindI forget the name of the technique, but let's try to read its intent. Samma whatever it is.
Hello everyone! I'm so glad to see all of you!>>1039852>A. Call to it, they’re supposed to be intelligent, right?>E. Something else?"Too bad Nappa's not here. He's pretty good with these guys right?"
>>1039852You breathe out “Samma Ditthi.” in the direction of the creature. There’s... something unusual about it. It isn’t afraid of you, nor is it openly hostile. It’s observing you out of pure curiosity’s sake. Which makes it seem even stranger, if it’s one of those blue Saibamen. Even a brief glance at the creature’s mind makes something about this seem... off.Though guess it can’t hurt to try. “Hello there! Sorry to barge in like this, but we’re looking for something. We don’t mean you any harm, so-”“What’s the password?”Wait what.“There’s a password?” Yamcha asks, mildly confused.“Is it fish?” your husband adds.“Swordfish!” Peppa cheers.The creature seems to move further back into wherever it’s hiding, not responding. Father and daughter slump, disappointed, as Yamcha and Pantea give them unamused glances.Launch pinches the ridge of her nose. “We don’t have time for your games, whatever you are. This is kind of important, so-”“They you know the password. What is it?”You know, you bet Nappa knows enough about these things that he could get it to tell you what it’s doing here. He planted a few of them on Earth when he and Vegeta arrived. Ah well...>A. Read its mind and repeat the password to it>B. Eeeehh, ignore it and look around, you really don’t have time for this>C. Telekinesis, grab the thing and bring it closer. Something’s fishy>D. Something else?
>>1040054>A. Read its mind and repeat the password to it>Consider what you read before giving it the password.
>>1040074I'll agree to this but let's tell Launch what the password is telepathically so she can say it. So it doesn't appear like we're mentally snooping.
>>1040099Ooh even better, good thinking swordanon.
>>1040099Probably unnecessary, but it couldn't hurt.
>>1040054Okay, just what IS this password, little blue brat? Let’s see... A scan of its mind reveals it to be trying to size you up. All of you. It’s comparing what Ki you’re giving off, noting that the kids seem weaker than you, Goku, Launch, and Yamcha, but stronger than it. It... seems very fixated on strength. At the same time there doesn’t seem to be any real malice or ill intention going through its head, simply... pure curiosity. Like it’s never heard of any of you before....How the hell does it NOT know any of you? Well, on the plus side, you’ve got the password, and you telepathically share it with an increasingly frustrated Launch. And then she pulls her hand away from her face in disbelief. “Do I have to say it?”“You know the password?”“Uuugh.” she groans out, then hesitantly answers... “Pwetty Pewase.”Gohan and Peppa start giggling as a little blue head pops out from behind a console. “How do you know the password?”“You just said we must know it, now you’re asking how we know?” Launch grumbles. “You’re getting on my nerves, you little blue-”https://youtu.be/LZrfbZpxMAQ“Why for you come here, knowing the password?” it asks next, and then barrages at you all, “Names of you all, what are they? You seem strong, are you fighters? Why would fighters come to Casino?”“...Casino?” Yamcha repeats in disbelief.“Many come for Casino. How many Zenni you have?”>A. ...there’s no Casino here>B. Sneak around why it’s distracted with its question barrage, maybe you can find what you’re looking for>C. Pantea, can you try and look into some of the computers here while we keep this... thing... occupied?>D. Something else?
>>1040342>D. "Liam sent us."
>>1040342Oh God. It's gone insane from loneliness.>C.And supporting>>1040369
>>1040342>C. Pantea, can you try and look into some of the computers here while we keep this... thing... occupied?
>>1040342You clear your throat and calmly state to the blue creature, “Liam sent us.”It shrieks in terror. “THE GOATLY ONE?! What news does he bring?” It then... seems to stare at Yamcha for an uncomfortably long and silent period of time.Time you use to telepathically tell Pantea to sneak around and try to look into some of the computers here, try and do some investigation while the four of you keep... whatever this thing is, occupied. You’re pretty sure this is no average Bio-man.“The scar-faced man has arrived too. Many a coin was spent betting on him.” it adds, Yamcha stepping back nervously. “What of the potatoes?”“It’s not the right harvest time for those, it’s only May.” Goku comments ernestly.“Bah, too early, too early! The rockets will have to wait.” it mumbles out. “The strong one must sleep further.”“I am completely lost.” Launch breathes out in an exasperated sigh.Yamcha, still backing away nervously, repeats, “S-strong one?”For a brief, unsettling moment, its tone changes. Not the odd but non-hostile one it was using before. It becomes one much deeper, calmer, direct... and dripping with malice. “The Majin.”>A. The Goatly one is here to know how soon the strong one will wake up>B. How much money was spent betting on Yamcha?>C. Where are the rest of the players at the Casino?>D. The potatoes could be substituted with another tuber, why not a yam?>E. Something else?
>>1040591>A. The Goatly one is here to know how soon the strong one will wake up>D. The potatoes could be substituted with another tuber, why not a yam?
>>1040591Oh. Shit. Uh>>A.
>>1040591>A. The Goatly one is here to know how soon the strong one will wake up. >B. "How much was spent on the Taitan of Wolves?">D. Are the potatoes actually people to be drained of energy for Buu? Try lemons. Those work better. >E. "What is your name?" Learn everything we can about this little guy. Kinda want to get to know him before he goes boom.
>>1040591‘Guys, we’re gonna stall him, so try to ask him as much as he’ll give us before he... I dunno, explodes or something.’ you telepathically inform Yamcha and Launch. “The Goatly one wishes to know when the strong one will wake his lazy ass up.”“Soon, soon! Before the other awakens!” it... almost cackles in delight.“You adjust to these things way too easily, you know that?” Launch critically glances in your direction. “Uh... where... are the rest of the players at the Casino?”“They’re around, they’re around!” It... ducks under the console it was hiding behind and seems to prop up a bucket with a mop punctured through it, making it look like it has a face and hair. “She bet 50 that the scar-faced man would not come. Fool. FOOL. FOOL FOOL FOOL!”“As much as verbally abusing cleaning supplies is a thing I want to be involved in, can you please not lump me in with this?” Yamcha coldly asks.“The potatoes will take a while, but why not another tuber? Like a yam?” Oh please gods let “potato” not be an euphemism for what you think it is. “Or a lemon...”“The potatoes must be the freshest, strongest ones!” it replies, slightly frustrated.Oh that isn’t helping. “And your name, what might it be?”“I am the Blue one. This is the Grey one.” he shakes the bucket-mop, then points away from you all, “There is the Green one.”“KI-KIIII!” a Saibaman responds-SAIBAMAN?!Everyone takes a defensive stance as it... hops and flips in place, not really doing much of anything. Now how the hell did that thing get here? Leftovers from the first batch? ...why can’t you sense anything but the tiniest hint of its Ki?“The strong one asked for help before it slumbered.” the creature adds....you’re starting to get a timescale now. Maybe.>A. The Goatly one wishes to know how long the strong one has slumbered THIS time>B. Kids, what have you found?>C. Try sensing around more, see if there are any more surprises here>D. Something else?
>>1040915>A.>C. Samma Ditthi on the Saibaman. >D. Telepathically to Goku.>Didn't you fight a Majin? You never did tell me in detail how that went.
>>1040964I'll also support this:
>>1040915“The Goatly one wishes to know how long the strong one has slumbered THIS time.” You do your best to sound annoyed. Not... too hard, just have to push past the mild confusion. You also use Samma Ditthi on the Saibaman. It’s... even stranger than the Bio-man. Just shows the same kind of curiosity, but there’s something clearly different about it. Like... like it’s just barely even alive. There’s something keeping it aware... or maybe “using it” could be a better way to describe it. Like it’s some kind of... puppet.“Oh oh, the Goatly one must be trying to count up his bet. Oh the strong one has slept for...” It... starts counting on its fingers. “About five years. Four and a half. Months, months...”Five years? Something’s been waiting on Earth for five years and nobody’s been aware of it until just now? And... it’s one of those Majins...Wait a second.‘Monkey boy, didn’t you and Arale and everyone fight a Majin before?’ you ask your husband telepathically.‘Huh? Oh, right, that thing that was messing with all those worlds.’ Then it starts to hit Goku. ‘...it said it had a “contact” in our world. A “Super Monster” like itself. A Majin.’...Looks like you found the people working with that “contact.” Or at least you hope you are, because you don’t want ANOTHER unspeakable evil showing up out of nowhere to try and cause havoc. And... if it’s the same one, this timescale works with the Saibaman being here. Might have been a leftover from Nappa’s ones. You look to the Bio-man defensively. Maybe... you can find where it is, stop it before it wakes up? Or at least keep stalling until the kids find something.>A. Blue one, speak the strong one’s name>B. Guys, gonna try and search for it, keep them distracted>C. Goku, what can you recall about your fight with that Majin, and did it say anything else about what its “contact” was like?>D. Kids, please tell me you’ve found something...>E. Something else?
>>1041368>C. Goku, what can you recall about your fight with that Majin, and did it say anything else about what its “contact” was like?>Someone contact Tripitaka and Katas Jr to contact the other Slumpverse Kami if he has any insight on this. We did help him out with his Super Monster problem, perhaps now it is time to call in our favor?E. Something else?Enter in the gambling stuff.We have 80,000,000 Zeni. Let's see what the betting pool looks like. We could easily buy in.We can also school them on tuffle luck.
>>1041368>>D.And supporting >>1041450
>>1041368>C. Goku, what can you recall about your fight with that Majin, and did it say anything else about what its “contact” was like?>>D. Kids, please tell me you’ve found something...
>>1041368Oh this is bad. This is very bad. ‘Goku, what all do you recall about your fight with that Majin thing? Can you recall anything else about its “contact” it may have mentioned?’Goku scratches his head, looking back and forth between the two creatures and the mop-bucket. ‘It could make copies of people, I remember that much. Heh, Krillin actually got a good idea on how to beat the copies. But... hrmn. These guys aren’t quite like those copies though, they seem more... “real” I guess. But it does feel a bit off, bit familiar...’‘Might be a good idea to have Kami and Trip get in contact with Arale’s Kami again, see if they can give us more to work with.’ Hoo boy this is not what you were wanting when you started this little event today. Next up... ‘Pantea, have you found anything?’‘Mrs. Maple? Ah, yeah, sorry!’ the girl responds. ‘You wouldn’t believe this, but we’ve found this huge room full of even more computers. Ones still being used. Whoever is here has been keeping an eye on things for... quite a while, it looks like. I’ve found files on Vegeta, Turles, those jerks Towa had that tried to kill Chuu Lee, Freeza, Cooler, King Cold... whoever’s responsible for this, they look like they’re doing it on their own. Towa’s not involved in this.’That... is not good. Now you have an actual unknown to deal with, and a Majin. ‘You be careful. We’re stuck with... these characters, still. Get as much as you can, but come back to us at even the slightest hint of trouble.’“Hmhmhm. Doctor will need to fix the rockets for the potatoes when they’re ready.” the Bio-man comments aloud. “So many bets riding on this.”...aha! Okay Maple, stalling tactics have got new ammo! “What’s the latest wager? We’ve got a few million to potentially throw around, you know.”“I am not getting involved in this.” Yamcha grunts, eyeing the Saibaman cautiously as it... continues doing those flips in the air.“We’re here to find hints about Towa, aren’t we?” Launch asks, wandering slightly, defenses up still. “And wherever the jailbreaks have disappeared to...”“The Green one bets 400,000! The Grey one bets 1,000,000! The Doctor bets 5!” It babbles out....Doctor?>A. 2 million!>B. The Doctor needs to up his ante! Where is that man now? Liam will not be pleased!>C. Pantea, are you absolutely sure there’s no info on Towa here?>D. Something else?
>>1041721>B. The Doctor needs to up his ante! Where is that man now? Liam will not be pleased!
>>1041721>D. 1,400,006>C ....Pantea...send me all the information you have on Towa to my scouter. Now.>D. Samma Ditthi...on Grey. It's a got mean poker face....it could be a shapeshifter...we know two.
>>1041721>>B.>>1041766Maybe it's because it's Friday the 13th, but supporting. This is fueling my paranoia over strange NPCS and I want to take no chances.
>I’ve found files on Vegeta, Turles, those jerks Towa had that tried to kill Chuu Lee, Freeza, Cooler, King Cold... whoever’s responsible for this, they look like they’re doing it on their own. Towa’s not involved in this.Either Gero is hedging his bets, or there's some kinda copycat going around.
>>1041721“1,400,006!” you bet. “Bah, and the Doctor only best 5! Liam would be ashamed by that! Where is that man right now, I’ll give him a piece of my mind!” This should help you a bit. ‘Pantea, it has some info on Towa, right? Send everything you can to my Scouter, quick.’‘I’ll have to start copying the data, give me a bit, Maple...’“The Doctor is out!” the Bio-man announces. Then, for a strange and tense moment, it freezes up. It then blurts out, louder than before, “The Doctor is in!”You all look around, trying to sense for whoever has arrived. You did just feel someone approach, but seems like... well, a normal person’s Ki. Not a demon, or a powerful alien, or anything. Just... a regular Earthling.You look to the bucket-mop and squint. Can never be too careful... “Samma Ditthi.”...Yep, it’s just a bucket. And a mop. And a tiny demon....Wait a second...“Grey, will you meet that challenge? I raised it higher.” you say to the mop-bucket.Goku scratches his head, Yamcha and Launch looking at you like you’ve started to go mad, then at each other, worrying that this place might be more nefarious than it appears. The Bio-man seems to shake it, but looking at it carefully, you notice that the thing actually moved by itself. “TWO MILLION.”Yamcha and Launch look at the bucket-mop in disbelief, then at each other again. “We’re losing it aren’t we?”‘You’re not, there is something there.’ You inform them. ‘It looks like a very, very tiny demon. Like... the size of a mushroom, it’s hidden under the mop “wig” it has.’Though you’re not getting much out of it, no more than you’re getting out of the Bio-man or Saibaman. Same occupation on “strength” in its mind.>A. Three million!>B. Try and sense for who this person is, maybe read their mind>C. Pantea, how long is this gonna take?>D. Something else?
>>1042062"Two million...and one.">Samma Sati
>>1042105Seconding these: >>1042105>>1042137
>>1042062“Two million... and ONE!” You’re betting with a demon pretending to be a mop. What even is today. Okay at least it’s distracted. ‘Pantea, how long? You might have company...’ Agh were is the person... not quite headed in your direction... wait, he might be moving towards the kids. ‘...soon.’‘A few more minutes, Mrs. Maple!’Well, those minutes better come soon... You can try and see who this person is, at least. Aaaand a little mind read-‘Lord Jaguar wants results. Well, he’ll get them soon enough. Collie’s found the perfect source of energy for fueling this thing, and if I can just keep it stable enough... ahahaha, Ms. Naaaan, oh you’ll see you were a fool to turn me down~’...Jaguar? Collie? Nan? Whoever this guy is, seems he’s got a whole team he’s working with. The Bio-man starts to... just sort of wander off, holding the mop-bucker-demon in his hand, as the Saibaman just... keeps doing the flip thing it’s been doing, giggling all the while. Launch has had enough, and she appears in front of the Bio-man. “Listen here, buddy, we’re not done yet.”“The Doctor will wish to know of the increased bet soon! We cannot raise further until all parties have made their bets!” he informs her nonchalantly. “He will wish to meet you! COME QUICK!”You’re about to protest, when warning signals flare, screens flashing to life. The words [UNKNOWN ENERGY SIGNATURE DETECTED] appear on the screen.>A. Head over, check on what it is really quick>B. Pantea, we’ll keep stalling, but we need that info>C. Pantea, grab anything you can find related to a “Lord Jaguar” and add that in>D. Something else?
>>1042383A. Head over, check on what it is really quick>B. Pantea, we’ll keep stalling, but we need that info>C. Pantea, grab anything you can find related to a “Lord Jaguar” and add that in>D. Something else?"Then Lord Liam must be contacted as well!"
>>1042383>A. Head over, check on what it is really quick>B. Pantea, we’ll keep stalling, but we need that info>C. Pantea, grab anything you can find related to a “Lord Jaguar” and add that in
>>1042383“The Goatly one must be informed as well!” you tell the Bio-man, nodding to Launch to try and keep them there. ‘Well, if you’re able to, get some info on a “Lord Jaguar,” Pantea. We’ll stall as best we can.’‘Ah, uh, okay Mrs. Maple. Just... give me a- ...uh-oh.’‘Uh-oh is a bad sound.’ A slight tinge of fear travels down your spine.‘I took a look at the thing flashing all the warnings. And... well, do you have any idea on what that is?’You quickly head over and look yourself. Goku and Yamcha have a glance of it too... and aren’t quite sure what to make of it. ‘Not a single clue.’ Well this day is getting worse before it gets better, isn't it?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jpkeAQG6kQw>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST Z #57... Paused.>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. Sorry for the thread’s delay, but we’re finally getting back on track. We’ll continue the next update on Sunday ~5:30 pm PST.This all said, did y’all have fun?
>>1042605Wheelo's Lab Arc has so far met expectations for hype.Everything I wanted in one thread. Movie villain used for a better plot. My three favorite new characters Blue, Green and Grey are going to have three used camel mounts and a tiger companion if we all make this out.Something on my mind. Could Raichi ghost warrior up the demon coconut bug then and still merge it with what's-her-face? Or does she have to die first?...And as for speculation on that husk... Is this is the start of the Cell Sentai. Please can it be?
>>1042605Oh. Shit.Good thread Kato, but damn, things look like they're going to get intense.
>>1042605WEEEOOO WEEEOO WEEEEOO WEEEOOOEOOThanks for running, Kato!
>>1042647>Could Raichi ghost warrior up the demon coconut bug then and still merge it with what's-her-face? Or does she have to die first?Yes, he could.>>1042657>>1042684Thanks for playing!Also going to take this time from between now and the start of the next update on Sunday as time to make a decision: continue from Maple's perspective, or switch to Gohan or Peppa?
>>1042750We haven't done Gohan yet...So Gohan.
>>1042750I'm okay with either one.
>>1040342always rember pewtty pewase
>>1042605Is that Bio-Plasm? Bio-Plasm Games wen
>>1042647>Could Raichi ghost warrior up the demon coconut bugAll I know is that you put the Lime in the coconut and drink it all up
>>1042750Let's do Gohan, I fear he's going down a path of submission to other's whims at the moment.
Aww, but Peppa is more fun.
>>1045410We don't know how fun it is to play as Gohan yet, so that's kinda poisoning the well there.
Okay, tomorrow will start with Gohan, if y'all are good with that.
>>1046715Fine with me.
>>1046715First act as Gohan.Read everything about swords from the computers.Masamune, Demon Slayer Sword, Rainbow, Shula's sword, and anything to styles.... Avan Strash with just a bokken for kicks for that one anon
>>1047425If Gohan has monkey finger, he can hold swords in his feet while he is flying.
>>1045765Peppa has been adorable though.>>1046715Aww, okay.
>>1048329Hold one in his tail too.He could pull a Zoro and hold one in his teeth too.
>>1048730https://youtu.be/dW8kKTvS53w?t=77>>1048520And she'll be adorable as a side character.
And we're back!>>1042605You place your hands behind your head and glance over the information Pantea downloads onto her Scouter. Peppa balances on her tail behind you as she watches the door, then asks, “Twelve times twelve.”“One hundred fourty-four.” Pantea responds almost immediately. Your sister does a cheerful little bounce, the game she’s been amusing herself with seems to be enough to keep her out of trouble.This time, at least. And hey, she’s being productive with it. “Thirteen times...” she almost says thirteen again, but switches it quickly at the last moment, “Fourteen!”“One hundred eighty-two.” Pantea replies so quickly it’s like she starts before Peppa’s even done saying it.“You’re so smart!”“Thaaank you Peppa.” she replies with a smile as you silently focus on the files. Interesting names some of these have. You spot ones related to energy transfer devices. Energy containment devices. Bio-energy analysis. Though... out of the corner of your eye, you see on another monitor something related to... magic? Well well, Gohan, maybe you could give her some help, that looks important.>A. Hop to the computer, ask if she can hand you a spare Scouter, and start downloading. Just mimic what Pantea does>B. Peppa, 14 x 20!>C. Mama said someone might be coming, try to sense for them and be ready to defend your sister and Pantea if the person causes trouble>D. Something else?
>>1050542>A. Hop to the computer, ask if she can hand you a spare Scouter, and start downloading. Just mimic what Pantea does>C. Mama said someone might be coming, try to sense for them and be ready to defend your sister and Pantea if the person causes trouble>D. Something else?. . . . Gohan pastebin?
>>1050542>D. Maaaaagiiiiiiick!Show her that trick you can do with your thumb.>B. Peppa, 14 x 20!
>>1050542>A. Hop to the computer, ask if she can hand you a spare Scouter, and start downloading. Just mimic what Pantea does

>>1038894How have I not noticed this quest before? Started reading the archive and it's pretty fucking rad. Well done, QM
>>1050673Thank you!>>1050589>>1050633Pastebin might not be needed, but I'll post it if it is.>>1050542You keep your senses sharp as you move up to the computer. You’re a little too small to properly sit in the chair, so you hover by it, then look to Pantea. “Do you have another Scouter?”“Huh? Uh, no...” she mumbles out, slightly distracted by your question. “...ah, but maaaaaybe...” She focuses hard for a moment, then uses the Clothes Beam to replicate a Scouter just like she has. “Aha! It worked! Well... almost. Give it a test, Gohan.”You put the Souter on your face and turn it on. Yep, works just like mama’s! “Works perfectly.”She smiles sweetly at you. “Just your average girl genius doing what she does best! I’ve watched mom and Mr. Acer work on them before, and I figured I could replicate one if I tried hard enough.”“You’re so smart, Pantea!” Peppa cheers again, bouncing on her tail.You simply nod in appreciation and mimic what Pantea did to start downloading files. Haven’t used many computers like this, but at least the thing seems to be intuitive. Okay Gohan, just gotta......You sense someone about 10 meters away.>A. Peppa, be ready, a bad guy might be coming!>B. Place the Scouter down and be ready for whatever comes through the door>C. Mama, someone is gonna be here soon>D. Something else?
>>1050720>B. Place the Scouter down and be ready for whatever comes through the door
>>1050720>D.>Hand Peppa the scouter and have her stay with Pantea to finish the download>Raioken up and go to the door and close it every time the person opens it, Using our superior speed to keep it closed.
>>1050792Holy shit this. Supporting.
>>1050720>She focuses hard for a moment, then uses the Clothes Beam to replicate a Scouter just like she has.Without a roll? Suuuuuuuuue.
>>1050830Didn't Maple do that a couple times before?
>>1050850We mastered it, and before we mastered it we had mishaps such as the Birthday Suit incident. Also, had to roll to make the Ginyus some scouters, and I think we still flubbed Guldo's given his weird head.
>>1038894Actually, fuck it. I haven't seen the original dragon ball, might as well now. See you guys in a few days.
>>1050904Hope you have fun!
>>1050876We made a Scouted before way back in Dragon Ball though.
>>1050911We didn't clothes beam a scouter until way later and it needed a roll.
>>1050911Scouter. Finger slipped.
Rolled 14, 12, 17, 18, 11 = 72 (5d20)>>1050830She got a 19. Here, another roll if you need it.
>>1050947This scouter's gonna explode off our face.
>>1050959Our Scouters don't explode.
>>1050959Tuffle Scouters don't explode. This isn't the PTO.
>>1050975>>1050976She only got an 18 and she's daughter of pic related.
>>1050976>Tuffle Scouters don't explode.But that's how the Saiyans won the war when their PLs wrecked the whole power grid.Did Pantea even know the specially made scouters had a failsafe mechanism installed when she made one from scratch?
>>1051013>>1051050It's been established that Tuffle-made Scouters do not explode several times before. Check it again if you wish.
>>1051078If the power grid didn't fail, then where'd the city-wide barriers go on the Full Moon Invasion?
>>1051078Now that Pantea has used it, would it be easier for her to teach her mother how to do it?
>>1051088If Bulma were willing to learn.
>>1051078>Tuffle-made Scouters...Pantea's a Tuffle? How will Yamcha's and Acer's friendship recover from this?
It's a good thing we as tuffles have taken on human apprentices who can keep up with our work.Pantea has learned more then just then fighting from everyone after all. I mean. It's not like we've had a long lasting relationship on her life as one of her mother's best friends.
>>1050720You place your Scouter down. “Peppa, can you watch over this?”She gives you a pout. “Aww, but I wanna-”“It’s okay.” you tell her with a smile. “This’ll be funny.”That gets her to pay attention. Pantea raises an eyebrow suspiciously, but doesn’t protest. You wait, and riiiight as the person gets to the door and opens it... “Now let’s see what this- ...what the hell? Kids?!”And you use the Raio-ken to bolt to it and close the door. Peppa giggles happily. The person opens up the door again, and you close it. Your sister laughs harder, even Pantea letting out a soft giggle as you stall him. “...We’re doing just fine, Mrs. Maple.”“YOU STOP THAT!” the person shouts as they open it again.And then you close it.“YOU BRAT!” the man, a lanky person in a lab coat, screams at you, opening the door again.And you close it once more.He seems to wait a moment before trying again. “...To hell with this, I don’t care if you are a bunch of brats, I’m not dealing with this today!”The three of you wait, and... you sense someone stronger than him, much stronger, show up. The door opens once more, and a man in a leotard with long, wild red hair and a scratchy beard stands with the scientist. You try closing the door again, but the person just breaks it open. Pantea and Peppa stand, readying themselves.“I don’t know how you kids got in here, but you’ve clearly seen too much already. Spopovich! Dispose of them!”You take a defensive stance as...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xbLZ9lx-e5w“RA-A-A-A-A! LOAD THE SPACESHIP WITH THE ROCKET FUEL! LOAD IT WITH THE WARRIORS!” He... shouts in a loud, almost incoherent voice. “YOU CAN FEEL IT DUDES. YOU CAN FEEL IT!”...what?>A. Bonk him on the head, just hard enough to knock him out. No more of that, please>B. Stare. Just... stare>C. What does any of that mean, mister?>D. Push him out the doorway and try to fix the door>E. Something else?
>>1051207...Kato I think I love you.>B. Stare. Just... Stare
>>1051139>It's a good thing we as tuffles have taken on human apprentices who can keep up with our work.Like Chuu Lee, our number one (and only) human apprentice?>I mean. It's not like we've had a long lasting relationship on her life as one of her mother's best friends.We held her as a baby once and taught her the clothes beam.>>1051207>E.

Time to do that secret one-hit-kill technique that Momma taught you to use against people much bigger than you. Ectoplasmic Nutpunch
>>1051250So I'm just going to put in a blanket "I'm against this" for every post by this ID. Hello shitposter-kun. Already off to your usual bitching I see.
>>1051207Oh. Kato. You're catering to my crazy.Thank you.>WWMD?What would Momma do?>E. Pose and go along with it."YOU HAVE BETRAYED DESTRUCITY! Reality and destiny are broken for you Spopo-wimp! SKRONK!>...Play my theme music!

>>1051207You... aren’t really sure what to make of this. You... stare. Just.. stare.And the nonsense continues as he snorts in air like he has a cold, flexing slowly. “THIS FREAK OF NATURE RIGHT HERE IS JUST BEGINNING TO SWELL! AND WHEN I GET BIG ENOUGH, BROTHER, THERE AIN’T GONNA BE ROOM!”You hear your sister start to growl at him lowly. Agh, what would your mama do? ...you have an idea. “You’re a sham! Reality and... and... destiny, they’re against you!” She’d stall for time. He might not be enough to hurt you, but every second counts, and the longer you can keep them occupied...He makes that unsettling, bizarre, nasally snort. “I LOOK ON UP TO THE GODS, AND WHEN YOU FALL BELOW THE SKELETONS OF THE WARRIORS PAST, THE POWER OF THE WARRIORS...” Okay and now he’s raising his hand. “WILL BECOME...” Aaaand charging Ki okay not good. “THE EIGHTH WONDER... OF THE WORLD!”“No you big oaf not in here you’ll destroy years of hard work!” the scientist protests, grabbing him by the arm and trying to pull it away, to no avail.>A. Push him out, quickly!>B. Knock him out!>C. Just deflect the Ki blast and keep up the banter!>D. Raio-ken! Grab him and dash out with him!>E. Something else?

Thread's theme right now: https://youtu.be/biO4zMrKmvU
>>1051448Can we throw our 4-Starred Dummy Ball at things really hard? Like, just hit it with our bokken like Pantea's Dad towards all this expensive looking equipment.
Okay, 1d20, best of five. DC is 11.
Rolled 1 (1d20)>>1051624
Rolled 20 (1d20)>>1051624Here goes nothing!
Rolled 1 (1d20)>>1051624...The Goatly One's presence has made the dice act odd...
>>1051629>>1051638Oh jeez. Gohan's gonna go learn the Kaioken and Genkidama it seems.
Rolled 9 (1d20)>>1051624What the hell?
Rolled 3 (1d20)>>1051624Third 1, third 1, third 1!
>>1051679That is three ones.
Rolled 6 (1d20)>>1051624Well this is going wonderfully.
>>1051692I am pleased someone acknowledged this.
>>1051629>>1051632>>1051638>>1051653>>1051679>>1051698...I see. Writing...Also anon you don't need to roll multiple times.
>>1051711>Also anon you don't need to roll multiple times.This a new rule, or one that's always been?
>>1051719It's kinda uncooth in my experience.
>>1051719One that's always been implied. You don't need to do that.
>>1051754When a roll is six minutes away from the last one I think it's implied that it's necessary?
>>1051759None of them were.
>>1051653>>1051698>>1051768Alright, you have a point in that the discrepancy is a bit under six minutes.
>>1051448“Nuh-uh.” you respond, calmly readying yourself. “Sis does a better job at that. And she’s Junior Champ.”The scientist catches that and looks at you, confused for a moment, letting go of Spopovich’s arm. He keeps charging that Ki blast... yeah you’re not taking any chances. You hold back just enough to make sure you don’t hurt either of them. Aaaand jump! You land a solid kick to Spopovich’s jaw and kick him down the hall!...and the kick makes him fire the Ki blast, hitting some of the monitors and causing a bit of an explosion. Pantea and Peppa grab the Scouters just in time, but looks like you’ll need to make a bit of an exit now. Won’t be getting much else out of this place.Pantea crosses her arms and looks at you disapprovingly, before getting communication from her Scouter. “It was just a bit of trouble, we’ve been spotted. Yeah, we got... all we could. We'll be there soon, don't worry.”The scientist can be heard sobbing softly where he fell. “Years of work. Gone in an instant.”>A. Sorry...>B. Pantea, tell mama it was my fault>C. Head back down the tunnel you came in from>D. Try to find another exit>E. Something else?
>>1051847>A. Sorry...>C. Head back down the tunnel you came in from
>>1051847Different timeline, same result. Gohan's still a Gohan.>A.>C.
>>1051847>E. Smash more computers up.
>>1051847>Grab the doctor and bring him to momma
>>1052027Yeah let's do this.
>>1051847You bow your head and apologetically look to Pantea. “Sorry...”“Let’s... let’s just get out of here.” Pantea grumbles out.Peppa pats you on the head. “It’s okay Gohan.”Well, you’ve gotta get back to mama, but there’s the Scientist guy here still. You pick up the still-sobbing lanky man, with him passively letting you drag him through the tunnel you found that led to this computer room.At least you would, if he would fit through it easily. You try to push him through, but since he’s an adult he barely fits. Bah. If only he could turn into a ball or something. “Gohan, just leave him, come on!”“But...” you start to protest... as the man begins laughing.“My work... no... they’ll push to have this accelerated. Soon. Soon Lord Jaguar will have him. Especially if the new energy source proves fruitful. Eheh. Ehah. Hahahaha. Shame I won't know what it was...”Pantea looks to him, confused. “Have who? What’ll be accelerated?”Between mad giggles, he states, “The Majin will have enough energy to awaken. And Lord Jaguar will have him under complete control.”>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST Z #57... Paused.>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 for a while for questions and such. We’ll continue the next update tomorrow at ~5:30 pm PST.This all said, did y’all have fun?
>>1052188Plot thickens.Gohan will need time for redemption! Did the Goatly One get contacted?
>>1052188Poor Gohan. Fun was had though, Kato, even if I showed up late to it. Thanks for running.
>>1052201>Did the Goatly One get contacted?
>>1052188Yeah, Gohan's cool.
>>1052201>>1052310The Goatly One has been invoked. The Green one, Blue one, and Grey one are trying to gamble with Maple over things.Yamcha is starting to lose his patience.Launch HAS lost her patience.Goku is mildly amused but curious of the bug thing.>>1052275Thanks for playing!>>1052318All righty then.
I wonder when it was that everyone's eyes became squares instead of circles?
>>1052323Double super kick with Peppa as our sibling combo move possible?
>>1052335That wouldn't be effective given their half-foot long arms, though maybe if we barrel-of-monkeys'd the two of them for certain combos to give them more reach...
>>1052361Combining it with Peppa's spiral ki attack is my end move idea.
>>1052323Is Cocoa waifu material?
>>1052384What if there was a big Ice Climbery chain of throws and slingshots that built up centrifugal force for an unpredictable blow of great magnitude?
>>1052335Currently the best Gohan and Peppa could do would be combining their Magic-enhanced Kamehamehas.>>1052387There is a girl named Cocoa in the same class as Gohan and Peppa. They barely know her.>>1052188“What do you mean by ‘Majin’? Who’s Lord Jaguar?” Pantea questions, tapping on her Scouter.Aaaand he’s just laughing, not even responding to her questions. Rude. Peppa rubs the back of her head, then looks to you. “Gohan he’s a weirdo.”“We really shouldn’t stall like thi-”You hear rumbling behind you. The three of you look back and- “I CAME HERE FOR ONE REASON! TO ATTACK, AND KEEP COMING!”...How is he still conscious? You kicked him hard enough to knock him out. At least, you think you did. Spopovich takes in another nasally, disturbing snort of air in as he flexes, then... sort of just shakes his head like a maniac going “RA-A-A-A-A-A!” again.>A. ...Kick him in the jaw again>B. Ignore him and try to shove the scientist guy in the tunnel again, maybe if you push hard enough, he'll fit>C. Mama, we’re ready to go now>D. Something else?
>>1055273>D. I get it, the SKRONKing is how he recharges his power to maximum! Peppa, attack right when he's recharging to finish him off!
>>1055273>>1055273Can Pantea clothes beam him some noseplugs to make him implode?
>>1055273Skronk him up. Goad him like a bullfighter. Then get him to charge, but then have everyone after-image out of the way last second. Have him open up the tunnel for us and the scientist.
>>1055307Ah wait, he does it through his teeth as well, that won't work.
Rolled 13, 19, 7, 8, 3 = 50 (5d20)Hmm...
...Waaaait a second. Okay, you have a bit of an idea. You look to Spopovich confidently, then wave your arm, signaling for him to come at you. And he charges like a bull. Luckily, you don’t even need to try to dodge him. He’s stronger than an average person, but you, Peppa, and Pantea are all above that. You step out of the way, and he charges right into the tunnel.And through it.Well, looks like it’s big enough to get through now. Ah, but he’s still up and ready. You look to your sister. “Peppa, kick him after he snorts again!”“EXITS STAGE LEFT! EXITS STAGE RIGHT! THERE IS NO PLACE TO RUN! ALL THE FUSES IN THE EXIT SIGNS HAVE BURNT OUT!” Spopovich shouts, catching the attention of the adults. You drag the scientist through the now-larger hole and walk to your mama.“Gohan, what is-” You then hand the giggling man to her.And right as Spopovich snorts... “NOW, SIS!”“PEPPA SMASH!” she shouts, dropkicking Spopovich and knocking him into a wall.You hear him groan softly, your sister landing and doing a little victory jab into the air. And then a blue bug person... walks to the giggling scientist. “YOU’RE HERE! WE CAN INCREASE THE BET NOW!”Out of the corner of your eye you spot Mrs. Launch holding her face in her hand, sighing angrily, as Mr. Yamcha tilts his head in mild confusion. Pantea gives your mama her Scouter.“HOW MUCH MONEY WILL YOU ADD TO THE BET?”“Eheh. Eheh hahaha. Heehee. Hahoo. Haaaah...” he babbles incoherently.“...ONE HUNDRED MILLION! Will that satisfy the Goatly one’s increase?” the blue bug asks your mama....You’re starting to realize that this place is very silly.>A. Mama can we go home now?>B. Ask the blue bug what it’s talking about>C. Apologize to mama; you broke the computers on accident>D. Something else?
>>1055432"Mother. Did we step through the looking glass? I feel like Alice...">B. Ask the blue bug what it’s talking about>C. Apologize to mama; you broke the computers on accident>D. Something else?"Auntie Trip can heal their minds right? They all seem a little...broken."
>>1055467Oh! And what the scientist said about the Majin and the Jaguar's control. All that stuff.
>>1055467This, but Grandma Trip instead of Auntie.
>>1055432I will also support these: >>1055467>>1055477
>>1055432>“Peppa, kick him after he snorts again!”You mean "as" or "when"? Phrasing like that might be why Future!Us's Mom and Uncle died.
>>1055487She told us to call her auntie, remember?
>>1055529But she's Grandma
>>1055432>D. I bet one Googol! Plus one!
>>1055541Technically she's our God Mother.I also want Gohan to point out we know a 'Jinn'.I wonder what they'll all do if we mention Popo?
>>1055564they'll probably popo their pants
>>1055432“...Mama, did we step through the looking glass? Because I feel a bit like Alice right now.” you mumble as you survey the odd scene once more. Your mama gives you a slightly confused glance, raising an eyebrow.“No drinks that make you big or make you small yet. I don’t think we’ve chased the rabbit that far.” Pantea comments, smirking at you.“So what’s the cricket person talking about?” you ask.“How much money will be bet! How much, how much! Will you meet the raise?” the blue bug babbles.“...I don’t think I can. The Goatly one will be impressed. Slightly.”...you’re lost. “Mama, something seems...” You look to the still cackling scientist, the groaning Spopovich, and the bug people, the blue one still babbling as the green one just... sort of flips in place. “...off. These people aren’t very well, are they. Can Auntie Trip fix them?”“Huh, you know, Trip might be able to help us a bit.” your papa adds. “Whatcha think, Maple?”She nods, bringing the scientist over her shoulder. “It would be a good idea. Not much else we can do here, and that strange bug seems important if this place detected it. Maybe it’s related?”“What about Towa?” Launch questions. “We came here for that, was there anything on her here?”“Oh, some of the files I downloaded had references. If we get them to Capsule Corp, I’m sure my mom could get them out quickly.” Pantea comments, then looks at you again.You rub the back of your neck. “...Sorry. They broke when I tried to stop that guy.”Your mama... doesn’t actually seem surprised. “Thank you for being honest, son.”Launch looks to the two bug people. “I’ll head to Capsule Corp. then, you guys deal with... that mess however you want.”“Got it! Goku, Gohan, Peppa, grab on.” your mama asks, picking up Spopovich, the two bugs, and for some reason a bucket wearing a mop. You and your sister grab hold of her legs as your papa puts his hand on your mama’s shoulder, and soon you’re all teleported to the Lookout....and the blue bug starts freaking out as Mr. Popo waves to you. “THE BLACK ONE! GREAT JINN OF THE SKIES!”He stares at it blankly as he waters the plants... oh, right! “Mama, what’s a Mah-jinn?”“...Ah, so you learned about that.” She gives an uneasy look to the scientist. “...we’re going to talk with Auntie Trip for a bit. You kids stay here and behave, okay?”Peppa nods as the blue bug starts... running around the lookout, screaming.>A. Promise!>B. Catch the bug, it needs to calm down>C. Mr. Popo, do you know this bug?>D. Something else?
>>1055688>A. Promise!>B. Catch the bug, it needs to calm down>C. Mr. Popo, do you know this bug?Perhaps we can start a betting pool for it to mediate. That familiar experience might get it to calm down some, seeing as how it thinks that it placates Liam.
>>1055688>A. Promise!>C. Mr. Popo, do you know this bug?>D. Something else?"Mr. Popo. Mama said she learned enchantments from you. Could you teach us while we wait?"Unrelated question. If Green and Blue fused what would happen?
>>1055742They'd be hopping mad.
>>1055688>Your mama gives you a slightly confused glance, raising an eyebrow.New Headcanon: Maple's only read Goosebumps and pic related for fun.
“Promise, mama!” you tell her, then turn your attention to the screaming bug thing. “...Mr. Popo, the bug seems afraid of you. Do you know him?”“I can say for certain that I have never met a creature like that.” he replies in a calm, formal tone. “Nor its equally strange friend.” he adds, looking to the green variant.Your sister looks to the blue bug and holds her hands over her ears. “He yells a lot.”You chase after him and catch up, showing off your superior speed and stopping the bug. It... still tries to run and scream, so you hold it over your head and bring it back to Mr. Popo. “Mr. Popo is very friendly! See?” you ask it.It screams louder.“I assure you, I mean no harm.” he tells the blue bug.It... calms down, slightly. “Ah, of course, of course. If the Black one wished me gone, I would not have lasted.” It struggles out of your hands, goes to grab the mop-bucket, and bows before Popo. “Great Black Jinn of the Skies! The Goatly one’s acolyte has brought me before you! The best and greatest of potatoes are to be put in their rockets.”Mr. Popo stares at it blankly. “...I see.”It raises its head, waving the mop. “Do you wish to add to the betting pool?”“That will not be necessary.”And it grovels. “Of course! Of course! Such tasks are beneath one such as yourself!” It then... shakes the mop-bucket combo. “Apologize, stupid!”“KEE-KEE!” the green bug laughs... giggles...? ...vocalizes.“...They’re a bunch of weirdos, Mr. Popo.” Peppa observes, hovering slightly in the air.Well... now what? Oh, maybe... “Mr. Popo, I heard you taught mama some tricks a long time ago. Can you teach us?”He gives you both curious looks... then smiles, and holds out a bell. “Do you think you can take this from me?”>A. I’ll try!>B. Maybe another time, I should study some more>C. Try to take it without saying a word>D. Something else?
>>1055883>D. Something else?Hardmode. Do it without Raioken or SSJ. Anticipate his movements, move without thinking and remember. His only goal is to keep us from the bell. Start off with sensing his power level and then..>"Soft as the sky...quick as lightning..."

>>1055883https://youtu.be/5Xy9h0Uz4gMYou nod, then bow to him politely. Okay Gohan, you can do this. Concentrate. You close your eyes and listen to the soft jingle of the bell as Mr. Popo holds it, keeping his Ki in clear focus. You dash towards him, and he’s surprised by your speed, only narrowly avoiding you.But you don’t stop and turn back, you instead keep going, and build up more speed. You start to circle back around to Mr. Popo. Your next pass around is even closer, Popo only pulling it away at the last second. But you planned for that.You smile and force yourself to make a quick stop, the momentum building up in your body. In an instant, you use it as a bit of a spring to launch yourself back at Mr. Popo. Soft as the sky, but quick as lightning!“Got it!” you cheer, snatching the bell out of Mr. Popo’s hand, landing gracefully.He looks to you, mildly surprised, but clearly glad you succeeded. “Well, you truly are their child, my boy.” He turns to face you. “You’ve even applied those skills without the transformation. Quite remarkable.” The pitch-black jinn then rubs his chin curiously. “...There may be more you can do with that, actually. You seem to be a natural at high movement, little Gohan. Here’s a thought: have you tried applying your magic to your speed?”...Magic, enhancing your speed? Huh, that’s an idea. But your conversation is interrupted by your mama and papa showing up again. And they seem... worried. “What’s wrong?”“Gohan, Peppa, we need you two to stay here for a while, okay?” your mama asks. “Something’s happening down at Amenbo Island, and we need you two to stay here with Auntie Trip. Keep watch over these guys for your mama and papa.”...You’re not sure why, but something about how she says this... troubles you. “...Stay safe, mama.”https://youtu.be/MdaYbv27BXY>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST Z #57 END>Twitter account is @KatoQm, will have status updates there>Got some questions for the QM?
