You went with your family, Yamcha, Pantea, and Launch to Wheelo’s old lab, discovering a trio of odd characters awaiting the arrival of a Majin while the kids uncovered something surprising: the facility is being used by someone with an alliance with the Majin, not in league with Gero or Towa. But before you could learn more, troubling news arrives, with something happening down at Amenbo Island...
>>1107572You and Goku arrive shortly after you heard from Piccolo there was an attack going on down there. And... Gods, was there ever. Buildings damaged and ruined, a pair of craters taking out city blocks, and even from high up, you can see bodies.“Looks awful.” Goku comments, starting to descend with you. “But I can’t sense whoever did this. Think they’ve already run away?”“Well, there is one option...” You check your Scouter. Power Levels... seem to average out below 10, a few anomalies, but nothing that you’d think would cause this kind of damage. “...and looks like they’re either hiding, or they’re gone.”“I wouldn’t be so sure about that.” you hear Piccolo’s voice call out, you and Goku turning to look towards him, noticing . “This feels wrong. I couldn’t sense them either, but it doesn’t seem like they’d just leave a job half-finished if they were trying to destroy this city.”“What do you think this is then?” Goku questions.Piccolo looks down grimly. “...A trap.”>A. Even so, we might need to spring it in order to keep them from causing any more destruction like this>B. Then we’ll investigate on our own, I’ll contact everyone I can and tell them to be cautious, just in case any other places are attacked like this>C. Piccolo, how about you take a Scouter and search with us?>D. Well, if the person responsible for this is who I think it is, this trap might be a diversion to keep us away from somewhere... like Capsule Corp.>E. Something else?
>>1107589Oh, Kais have I missed this.>B. Then we’ll investigate on our own, I’ll contact everyone I can and tell them to be cautious, just in case any other places are attacked like this>C. Piccolo, how about you take a Scouter and search with us?(Make sure it fits him comfortably and explain it's other functions beyond ki sensing)>D. Well, if the person responsible for this is who I think it is, this trap might be a diversion to keep us away from somewhere... like Capsule Corp. Or Korin. Or Konpei. Or Katas Jr. and Kami Trip. Or Kame House. We have a lot of vulnerable places. Let's hope we learned from the whole senzu field getting destroyed.>E. Something else?>Samma Ditthi>Scry! "Let's set up a trap ourselves! We'll make our trap around their trap!"
>>1107589I can back this >>1107613
>>1107613Well, it may be a trap, but... “We’ll try to spread out and investigate a bit. Piccolo, would you mind helping us? I could make you a Scouter too.” you question, materializing one that would fit comfortably with a Namekian ear. “If they’re machines, you might not be able to sense them, so...”“Hmnh. Fine, I’ll help.” he grumbles reluctantly, taking the Scouter. “Better than letting them get the jump on me.”“What were you doing down here anyway, Piccolo?” Goku questions.“I was meditating at a waterfall nearby.”Goku looks to you and the two of you can’t help but chuckle slightly at that. “Meditating, right.”“Anyway, if this is a trap, they might be trying to lure people away from certain places... like Capsule Corp.” Uh-oh.“Or the Lookout.” Piccolo notes, a slight chill going down your spine.“Ah, or Korin’s, Konpei’s, Kame House... gah, well, might not get backup for this. I’m contacting everyone I can and letting them know what’s up.” A number of telepathic conversations later, you’ve got your friends on alert. And with that... well, you breathe out “Samma Ditthi.” and try to sense the intentions of whoever is around. And all you’re getting is... this vague sense of someone seeking something. Seeking... Energy? Even focusing your Foresight, you can’t quite Scry out any exact locations... but you do get a lead.Your husband crosses his arms. “Any place you think we should start looking, Maple?”“I’ve gotten three vague directions. One to the north of the city, one to the east, and one to the west. There’s someone there at each point. Best I can tell, at least...”>A. I’ll go north>B. I’ll try easy>C. I’ll head west>D. Let’s stick together for now, that way they can’t tie us up all separated (and go where?)>E. Something else?
>>1107782..Ginger Town is a West City suburb right?...West.
>>1107782>C. I'll head west
Oh. Thought of another k-word.The Kaiju and the water are...another possible target! But then again, that's the point of them being there.
>>1107782“I’m going west, where are you guys headed?” you question.“I guess I’ll go spread out and go east.” Goku comments.Piccolo looks ahead. “I’ll take the last one. You two stay on your toes.”You fly off in the direction of where you sensed... something. You’re not quite sure who it is, or what they’re planning, but you’ll need to stop this. Touching down, you end up in an area with less rubble... but more bodies. Some with fairly horrific injuries; one looks like a man whose head was torn clear off, another who looks like they were jabbed right through the heart. But the strangest ones are the people who show no clear injuries, but each one has a terrified look across their faces....Gods, this isn’t right. Out of the corner of your eye you spot what looks like a young girl in the fetal position hiding in the corner of a building, silent, pale from shock. Fairly weak, too, only barely sensing some Ki from her.>A. Approach her, see if she’s okay. Poor thing's probably scared out of her wits...>B. Call out to her, let her know she needs to evacuate>C. Telepathically contact her, see if you can let her know to get away, but keep moving>D. Something else?
>>1108115>D. Something else?Spirit bits a barrier around her and telekinetically float her to us. Check if she's injured and fill the barrier with healing energy if she is.
>>1108115>B. Call out to her, let her know she needs to evacuate>D. Samma DitthiTry to find if the thing seeking energy is near.

>>1108115You start up the Spirit Bits, making a barrier around yourself just in case something tries to attack you, and then float towards the girl, calling out to her, “Hey, you need to get out of here! It’s dangerous. Are you able to move? I can help you if you need it...”No response. You close in, still sensing her very weak Ki. Much lower than a normal human’s, she might be in shock. You look behind you and give another call of “Samma Ditthi.” And... you don’t quiet expect the first thing you get from it. Something about... a gangster? Mafia? Whatever it is it isn’t happy. But the second thing is exactly what you were expecting, and much closer than you were expecting it.‘Energy.’Energy... what energy?‘ENERGY.’“Kid, we need to get out of here now!” you call to the girl... then hear clucking noises as a chicken seems to run away from her, crossing the road in a panic....And the chicken was the Ki you were sensing.https://youtu.be/5q7SxFNF_xMYou barely react in time, thanks to your Foresight and having the Spirit Bits barrier up already, but you quickly learn why that something was demanding energy.The girl lunges at you, grabbing your barrier and somehow draining it, and only giving you a moment to react before she attacks you. You take your stance. “You... who are you?”“Maple Mahogany.” the girl calls to you in a monotone, emotionless voice, staring at you with cold, almost dead eyes.You clench your fists. “First off, it’s So-”“Target located.” The girl starts walking towards you slowly, Scouter starting to give you a reading... that keeps climbing. As you look over her... you notice that damnable [R><R] symbol on her rather strange outfit. “Surrender your energy.”>A. Attack, knock her down! Melee attack!>B. Blast her! Ki attack!>C. Keep away from her, contact Goku and Piccolo and let them know what happened>D. Did you cause all of this?!

>>1108488So what are the chances of us, cutting her hands off and replacing them with non-life energy sucking hands and making her apart of the shortie squad?Cuz. I don't wanna be that guy...but Rainbow's gonna hafta lop those suckers off.
>>1108501Swordanon don't take this the wrong way but you are exactly the guy who would suggest that.And I'm all for it.
>>1108501We could just put rubber mitts on her ki absorbers.
>>1108501We'll have to see.>>1108523Do not trust the mitts.

>>1108572It's not magic, it's magitech, must I throw this tantrum again?
Let's punch it.Really hard.
>>1108351“No, YOU surrender YOUR energy!” you shout, firing an MP Buster at her.And... she doesn’t even dodge it. She just lets the attack hit her as she picks up speed. And Scouter is telling you that dropped her strength, but it somehow ends up climbing right back up. “That was not a smart move.”You barely dodge her hand as she tries to grab your face, using your enhanced reflexes and superior speed to dodge under her and back away. “I see you’re probably Gero’s handiwork. So Towa finally give up trying to hide it and just ask him to make you for her? Because I’m noticing some... similarities. In fact you kinda remind me of Chiaotzu’s doll... mixed with bits of me.”And she doesn’t respond to that, trying to grab you again. You manage to bat her arm away, kicking her in the gut and pushing away, flying for a bit to get your distance. She comes at you once more. “Your energy will be used for a better purpose, Tuffle. Surrender it.”“I bet you said the same to the folks around here, didn’t you?!” you bark in response, moving through the ruined city. What a nightmare that must have been, a girl like this going around killing people... “I think I’ll keep my Ki, thank you very much.” You quickly contact Goku and Piccolo... who seem to have ended up with their own, similar problems. You sense Goku transform in the distance. That... is not a good sign.She’s damn near relentless in her pursuit, and you’re on the defensive right now...>A. Full power! Raio-Ten!>B. Blast her with something different, try the Power Slicer!>C. Your sword will give you a bit more reach and keep her away from you, draw it and be ready to counter with it!>D. So last ones were 13, 14, and 15, are you 16, or is that one of your pals out there?>E. You don’t really have time to waste with this, teleport to Goku or Piccolo (which?)>F. Something else?

>>1108601“So last ones we fought were 13, 14, and 15. Which one are you, 16, or is that one of your buddies here?”“Number 16 is with Dr. Gero. I am Number 19.” she replies in monotone, nearly grabbing your neck before you catch her arm and smack her in the jaw with your other palm, dashing away.Okay, if Ki attacks are going to get eaten, and the MP Buster didn’t do much more than give a small blip, you’ve got another way to fight her. You draw your blade and let out a cry of “RAIOKEN!” Dashing at 19, your now superior speed allows you to get some clear hits in on her... but none that leave any lasting damage. At one point you nearly bring your sword down on her face, only for her to catch it between her hands, an unflinching look on her face. And... you start to feel even your sword get lighter, quickly pulling it back. It returns to normal, but that did not feel right and you’re going to have to be even more careful now.You’re still able to keep away from her, but even with your better speed she’s... barely even attempting to take this seriously. 19 fires a pair of beams from her eyes at you, aiming at your legs, and you only barely manage to dodge in time. “Pattern recognition improving. You can not outlast me.”You sense Piccolo and Goku getting closer to your location, and from the sound of things, they’re fighting pretty seriously, and Goku might not be doing as well as Piccolo is. Not sure how long you can keep this up...>A. Keep it up! At least until you can take out her energy absorbsion things!>B. You know 19, you could use something other than the clown look; CLOTHES BEAM!>C. Teleport away to Goku, need to regroup>D.

>>1108919..was that a random roll you did Kato? Cause that's creepily close to what we all rolled.
>>1108848Okay, you’ve got a plan. Her next dash at you comes, and you counter with the Izumi combo, being extra careful to avoid her hands as you counter. You luckily push her away, then smirk. “You know, 19, that clown outfit doesn’t really work on you. Maybe you should try something else! CLOTHES BEAM!”You throw the frilliest, prettiest dress you can manage at her. You then get a little... creative. You use just a little Fire magic to enhance your next punch, quickly using the opportunity the distraction gave you to smash your fist into her face, setting the dress ablaze! That... staggers her momentarily. Not as much damage as you’d have liked. “Target lo-”“NOPE!” you fire a few clown noses at her, filling her vision them as they start to catch fire from the dress covering her face, and use the chance you have to teleport away, right to Goku......and right in time to catch him as he falls from the sky. He shakes his head and looks up at you. “Aheh, hey Maple. Nice save.”“Seemed like you needed some help, monkey boy.” you chuckle to him.“The both of you will need more than help to deal with what’s before you.” a smug, arrogant voice shouts from the sky. “A shame none of your other friends are here at the moment, but the two of you are enough for now. I’ve wanted my chance to get back at you all for so many years...”You look up and see... a red haired man in a blue army jacket with red ascot, open and shirtless, cracking his knuckles and chuckling.>A. ...who are you again?>B. Goku, who is this guy?>C. Wait, I remember you! You didn’t buy camels from Hassan!>D. Yeah love to stay and chat, but we’re gonna regroup with Piccolo now>E. Something else?

>>1108990>E. A Silver Android? Weird choice of building material.
>>1108990“...who are you?” You can’t seem to recall meeting whoever this is. “Goku, you know this guy?”He rubs the back of his neck, standing and shaking his head, the blonde hair on it swaying back and forth. “He says he’s called Number 17. But he seems to have a big grudge against us...”“FOR DAMN GOOD REASON!” 17 hollers. “I was humiliated by the likes of you. The Red Ribbon Army was forced to work with that coward Pilaf. But everything changes.”Red Ribbon Army... Pilaf... oh wait! “You were the guy who didn’t buy the camels from Hassan!”His shoulders slump slightly. “...that’s all you remember of me.”“Yeah, you missed out on a great deal, buddy. Like, the best deal. Those camels have been loyal and helpful companions for years.” You grin wide, remembering it all like it was yesterday...“For years I have waited to strike back at the likes of you for HUMILIATING me like that. And but a few months ago... heh, at least, by your time, Dr. Gero finally gave me that chance. I am no longer Colonel Silver. I am what that flamboyant fool was meant to be. Artificial Human Number 17, a warrior with limitless power!”“You still missed out on the camels-”“SILENCE!” he roars, firing a Ki blast down at you and Goku, only barely missing as the two of you move out of the way. “But even if my power is without end... that doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy having just a little more. The two of you will surrender your Energy to me!”https://youtu.be/5ftMUQJxmGU>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST Z #58...

>>1109136Is Colonel Violet a Robotech now?
So, I've been thinking about how we might counter these ki-draining androids. Here's a few options I thought of:>1.) Attack while android/cyborg is busy trying to drain another blast. This is potentially dangerous, as any blast that can hold an android in place is sure to power it up enough to that it could dodge or retaliate quickly, not to mention that physically attacking something near a huge ki blast is inherently dangerous. But if successful, it might be possible to damage/disable the android's arms/ki draining thingy and have them take the brunt of the blast that they were draining.>2.) Get small sharp/blunt objects, infuse them with ki. Fire large ki beam at android, have ki-infused objects ride the beam (and/or telekinetically propel them down the beam) and damage the android's hands as the ki blast gets sucked in.This might need some approval from the QM. The fight with #19 showed that it can't quickly drain the ki from Maple's ki-infused sword, instead opting to grab the flat ends between her palms and drain it from there. This might mean that, if #19 was dumber, she would have tried to catch the edge with one hand, which could have messed up the android's hands.If we infuse objects with ki, that may make them immune to being disintegrated by our own attacks; if you look in DBZ, there's a lot of environmental objects that can get damaged just by a person powering up. But swords and the like seem to be able to withstand its user's aura/ki as long as it's infused with the same ki.Using that train of logic, infusing some small blunt/sharp objects (i.e. rocks, bullets, glass) might protect them from the disintegrating effects of a beam attack. If that holds true, then firing them along with a beam would cause them to accelerate at the same speed as the beam that it's riding. If the android attempts to absorb said beam, it will funnel all the energy into a small point to be sucked into the little globe-looking things into its hands. It is here that the ki-infused objects come in. Since they are physical objects and not ki, they would get sucked along with the beam, but not absorbed into the android; instead, they'd impact the android's hands with a pretty high velocity. Since androids can't drain ki-infused objects instantaneously, this could mean that said ki-infused objects could cause appreciable physical damage to the android's hands/energy draining thingy. Or maybe even clog up the line if the objects were small enough, would result in the ki attack going through instead of being absorbed.
>>1111248Of course, there are also some other options:Fuse with someone so we can get a huge enough powerboost to physically overwhelm the androids. The stronger Z-fighters in canon trained so much that they could fight off the androids so that they didn't need to fight cleverly.
>>1111248Or we could just Clothes Beam up some mitts or boots that are heavy and made of really durable material and beat the living shit out of them.
>>1109164Primus, I really am getting close to that...>>1109316You'll have to wait and see.>>1111248>>1111273>>1111355I'd just like to take a moment to say I'm really, really glad y'all are thinking like this. This is pretty damn clever, and glad you noticed some of those things.Now, let's resume...>>1109102“Maple. Goku. How long I’ve waited for a chance like this. You will both be used to fuel my strength to new heights!” 17 declares, dashing down to you.Your Scouter tells you that 19 is closing in, and Piccolo seems to be moving closer to your position as he fights the other one of Gero’s creations. But on the bright side... you can sense Raditz, Tien, Chiaotzu, and Launch start to approach. No sigh of Krillin, Lapis, Lazuli, Acer, Chi-chi, Yamcha, or even Chuu Lee, but that might be for the best. Yamcha’s probably still at Capsule Corp, the kids are safe at the Lookout, and you can bet the others are heading off to serve as backup at some other places.Goku takes his stance, and you take yours. Well, sounds like he’s got the same energy absorbing things 19 had, so going to have to be careful...>A. Goku, let’s outspeed him! Use the Raio-ken and we’ll keep attacking when he’s open!>B. If he can absorb energy... maybe you can block that with the Clothes Beam! Fire it quickly and cover his hands!>C. You’ve got an idea! Telekinesis! He might be able to absorb Ki attacks, but if you can start pelting him with objects via telekinesis, maybe you can break those Ki absorbers! Might be risky, but you could fire them alongside a beam too for a better chance to hit...>D. Something else?
>>1111918>D. Cover ours and Goku's hands in hard, durable mitts and start wailing on Silver.
>>1111918>A. Goku, let’s outspeed him! Use the Raio-ken and we’ll keep attacking when he’s open!Dodge him all day.
If we stab a hole in him, and give him some energy through it, would the technology reform around it and leave a weak spot if the sword was pulled out?
>>1111918Why not try overloading him with a combination attack
C'mon guys, if our bodies aren't making direct contact with him it'll be harder for him to steal our ki.
>>1111952You could try.
>>1111918>A. Goku, let’s outspeed him! Use the Raio-ken and we’ll keep attacking when he’s open!>B. If he can absorb energy... maybe you can block that with the Clothes Beam! Fire it quickly and cover his hands!>>1111944Since it bypasses the filtering technology, it'd probably do a number on his internal electronics along with any other organs he might still have. Though I have no idea if he'd regenerate around the injury. Depends if he's some sorta nanomachine robot now with a personality.
>>1111957He could just try to grab/grapple areas that aren't covered, like how #19 was doing for a while.
>>1111918>D. Test to see how modified he is by poking him in the eyes.

>>1112086Oh shit, he's dead.
>>1112086Course we do, we're Son Maple after all.Also holy fuck Silver, when are you ever NOT gonna' job.
>>1111918https://youtu.be/1PwhIaH-l-w“Goku, let’s outpace him! He might be tough, but he won’t be able to keep up if we work together.” You let the Raio-Ten’s purple aura flare around you, sparks flying.Goku smiles and nods, then shouts, “Raio-KEN!”17 seems to be able to keep pace initially, but while he might be a bit faster than you, you’ve got superior reflexes, and Goku seems to outspeed him entirely. The two of you work in unison, carefully focusing your attacks and keeping away from Silver’s reach. He’s smart, aiming for parts of your bodies that are harder to protect, but with you and Goku covering each other’s backs, you’re able to hold him off.At one point he almost grabs Goku’s neck, but just in the nick of time you Clothes Beam a pair of strong, padded gloves on his hands. When he grabs, he can’t draw more than just the remaining residual magic from you making the gloves, and Goku’s able to kick him away, chasing after and slamming his knee into the back of 17‘s head. He tosses the glove aside angrily and stands tall.“Goku! JAN! KEN!” you shout, bolting at the former Colonel Silver with Goku as the two of you, in unison, shout “Rock!,” your fists hitting him in the sides, “Scissors!,” next poking him in the eyes, causing him to cover his face and grunt in pain, “PAPER!,” and finishing it off with a pair of palm strikes to his gut, sending him flying.17 crashes through a building, and that did look like it did some damage to him... but most of it just seemed to enrage him further. “If you’re going to make this difficult I’ll just take the energy from your fresh corpses!”You and Goku barely manage to dodge a pair of beams from 17‘s eyes... and then you get an idea as you see them blast through some buildings, creating yet more rubble. You cup your hands together and build up Ki... but not a lot of it, focusing most of your efforts on instead pulling up some rubble with your telekinesis. Goku dashes to him and feints a few strikes, allowing you time to fire a quick, weak Kamehameha that 17 is sure to notice.His attention is focused on Goku, but he seems to smirk and quickly bring up one of his hands, absorbing the Ki... and then getting pelted with the rubble, one lucky, fast-moving bit of rock slamming right into the Ki absorber and cracking it.17 pulls his hand back in surprise, looking over the damage. He clenches his fist angrily. “Corpses it is then. Time I make the two of you realize how outclassed you really are.”Right as he says that... you start to feel Piccolo’s Ki drop. Oh no... >A. Stay and fight! Piccolo can handle himself!>B. Goku, he’s down an absorber, try and wear him down while I go help Piccolo!>C. Clothes Beam 17 in the face, grab Goku and have the two of you go save Piccolo while he’s distracted!>D. Something else?
>>1112196>C. Clothes Beam 17 in the face, grab Goku and have the two of you go save Piccolo while he's distracted!We ain't splittin' up.Also make it a bunch of red ribbons.
>>1112196>D. Goku, you've got this one, I'd recommend using the Power Pole on him though.>B. Goku, he’s down an absorber, try and wear him down while I go help Piccolo!
>>1112196>C. Clothes Beam 17 in the face, grab Goku and have the two of you go save Piccolo while he’s distracted!Might be time for a training montage in the Hyperbaric Mime Climber.
>>1112196Ah damn, Piccolo...>C.On the plus side we sure as hell wounded Silver's pride.

>>1112196You dash to Goku’s side quickly, right as 17 starts to walk towards him, slowly, with a malicious smile across his face... and you seem to notice lights in his eyes. “I’ll make this quick.”You place your hand on Goku’s shoulder, then shout out “CLOTHES BEAM!” and materialize a set of Raditz’s armor right around 17‘s head. He seems to not even be phased by it and fires a pair of beams from his syes......but you’re already gone, you and Goku appearing right above Piccolo and the person attacking him, the two of you quickly dropkicking them, freeing Piccolo. Goku catches him as he starts fo fall, and to your relief, Raditz, Chiaotzu, Tien, and Launch arrive to even the odds a bit.“Ugh. Remind me not to try that again.” Piccolo groans, rubbing his head.“Ahh, just the people I’ve been waiting to see.” the fighter’s voice announces. You and Goku finally get a good look at... her.https://youtu.be/0MH9J7Zpq9YLaunch lets out s soft gasp. “You... you’re...”“Been a while, ‘Officer.’” she addresses Launch mockingly, running her fingers through her long blonde hair.“H-Hasky?!”“Well, not anymore. You can call me Artificial Human Number 18.” the woman declares.Launch clenches her fists. “Why? WHY?! You were making progress, you were-”“Turning over a new leaf? Don’t make me laugh you condescending bitch! I was a complete goddamn screw-up, and it was all because of YOU. You and all your bastard pals. I...” Hasky looks down, sighing slightly. “...I almost fell into the same trap you did. But lucky for me, a few people helped show me a... different path. And I’m going to enjoy showing you how much better this path is!”Piccolo hastily explains to the newcomers about her ability to absorb energy, and warns against getting too close. Raditz takes his place next to his brother, Launch... just staring for a minute. You can hear her mumble under her breath “why” a couple times before Tien manages to get her to snap out of it.Well, you have her outnumbered, but she just took in a lot of Piccolo’s energy, and you’re gonna have to fight smart over this, because you know 17 and 19 are going to get here soon.>A. Guys, no holding back! Hit her with everything you’ve got!>B. Try what you did with 17 with her, break her Ki absorbers!>C. Hey, Hasky! 19 isn’t the only one who needs a new getup! CLOTHES BEAM! (Try to blind her)>D. Something else?
>>1112405>C.>D. Run!We need to get the fuck out of here now.
>>1112405>D. Don't break the ki absorbers. Goku's faster, have him do it while you...>C. Blind with clothes beam!
>>1112412This. She drank like half a Piccolo, and we shouldn't take our chances.
>>1112405Question! If Hasky still has an organic brain, can't we just psychic it up? Get us and Launch in that brain of her's and see...well exactly 'why' she did it....We may need to fuse. I'd say with Chiaotzu for that psychic boost, but fusing with Launch would probably get us through to Hasky better.
>>1112420You could try that, but no guarantee it would work completely in your favor.
>>1112426Then we should teleport everyone a distance away (focus on that chicken we felt before) and everyone fuse up! Yes, even you Raditz and Goku.I wanna see Karritz!

>>1112405https://youtu.be/v97gaAvrzYgYour thoughts of trying to keep this fight going seem to vanish as she not only moves right in the middle of your group quicker than anyone but you and Launch can realize, but manages to bring out a strong Explosive Wave that knocks all of you down. And before Goku and Raditz can react, she quickly grabs the two Saiyans by the face, knocking their heads together and starting to drain them, looking to Launch with a sadistic grin. “I’m debating on saving you for last, just to drive home the gap between us.”Tien and Chiaotzu try to rush her, but she just dodges and causes them to smack into one another, quickly stomping down on Tien’s back. She laughs tauntingly... but instead of continuing to struggle, Goku opts to try a different approach, drawing his Power Pole and letting out a muffled “EXTEND!”A hard thwack to the back of her head gives Goku and Raditz the chance they need to back away, Chiaotzu helping Tien up. 18 rubs her head and glares at him. “Clever bastard, but that’s not going to work again. In fact...”She uses the greater power she got from the two Saiyans to move behind Tien and lock him in a full nelson, hand on the back of his neck. Launch shouts at her, “Let him go!”“Ah, very protective of your man. But one wrong move, and I’ll do more than drain the poor bastard.” 18 replies, Tien’s Ki dropping steadily. Your Scouter lets you know 17 and 19 are approaching. This... this is bad.But you might have something to fix it. You tap two fingers to your forehead, building up Ki. Only got one shot... You teleport right above Tien and shout “CLOTHES BEAM!,” covering Hasky’s face with a “BAD GIRL” shirt and her hands with padded gloves, managing to stop her draining Tien.(cont.)
>>1112616The confusion allows him to struggle free, elbowing the cyborg woman in the jaw and backing away to Launch. But with him free, that allows Hasky the chance to punch you in the gut, blasting the glove away with a burst of Ki and grabbing you by the neck. Ki starts to leave you as she squeezes. Every part of you feels like it’s on fire, as if someone is dragging your very essence out of your body, kicking and screaming.It’s a thankfully brief experience, Goku trying for the Power Pole again. 18 catches it with her free hand... as Launch throws a gun at her. And then three more. The unexpected pelting by actual firearms, not their bullets, gives you the chance you need to bite her hand and break free, you quickly teleporting back to the others.“...please tell me you haven’t forgotten how to actually use those things.” Hasky asks Launch dryly.You tell everyone to hold on, and make a hasty teleport with your friends, locking on to the chicken you sensed earlier. Raditz and Goku power down, everyone taking a moment to breathe. “Well that’s an embarrassing way to start a battle.” Raditz grumbles. “Cheap shot and drained... agh, damn it all!”“There’s no wounds from it.” Goku notes. “But that felt awful.”“But now she’s gotten even stronger, and we’ll be sitting ducks out here if we don’t come up with a plan.” Piccolo grumbles angrily. You can feel the sting to his pride, but seems he doesn’t feel as bad about it after seeing you, Goku, Tien, and Raditz all go through it. Launch is... silent.>A. We need to regroup at the Lookout, this could get out of hand quick if we stay here>B. Let’s head to Capsule Corp for now, then let everyone know what’s going on>C. If we leave now, they’ll only cause more carnage. We can’t let that happen!>D. Something else?
>>1112620>>A. We need to regroup at the Lookout, this could get out of hand quick if we stay here.Instant Transmission or whatever.
>>1112620Send Goku, Launch and Raditz to Tripitaka to get their power unlocked. Then after everyone's powers are unlocked. Everyone pairs up, and we all fuse. Then we have thirty minutes to get all three androids defeated.
>>1112620>A. We need to regroup at the Lookout, this could get out of hand quick if we stay hereI guess we can also IT back to Capsule Corp and let Bulma know what's happened.
>>1112620WellShit>A.We need to get out of here, now
...Where is Chuu Lee?Having the strongest human ever on our side would really help.
>>1112670Where's like...half our crew?Did they run off into space again?
>>1112654On one hand, I don't wanna give them more energy to drain. Draining Chuu Lee would be bad.On the other, if we don't regroup with her, they could target her 3v1. Which is much worse.>>1112620>A. Zoinks! Like, let's get outta here, Scoob!
>>1112706True. They could be guarding specific locations.I'm surprised they didn't sneak on the kaiju and drain all their power by 'fighting' them for the water.Or do the same to Baba's men. All they need to do is fight legit for the challenges, but use their draining abilities to take power from them all. Then turn it on us.
>>1112620“We’re going to have to regroup at the Lookout. This is quickly becoming something we might not be able to handle before backup arrives, so we need to get out of here, now.”Raditz sighs angrily. “Retreat. Damn it.”“Better than getting the rest of our energy drained.” Goku says with a shrug, putting his hand on your shoulder. Raditz reluctantly does the same, everyone else grabbing on. You tap two fingers to your forehead and appear back at the Lookout, right next to Mr. Popo. Peppa and Gohan seem to have gotten the Bio-man to calm down, reading a book to him before noticing you’re back, nearly tackling you and Goku.You pat each of them on the head gently as Kami and Trip appear, Piccolo turning his head away. The aged Namekian waits a moment before speaking, letting you all settle. “That was indeed a close call. But it sadly is not the only thing we have to worry about.”You bite your lower lip. “I... kinda figured.”“More foes are out there. Chuu Lee, Krillin, Lapis, Lazuli have engaged in battle with a powerful demon trio trying to do something with some of the Aquma.”“That demon water stuff?” Goku recalls. “What’re they planning?”“I am not quite sure myself. But in addition to that... I’ve felt a strange presence, something seems to have appeared near Gingertown. I can not make sense of its Ki; it does not seem to be a demon, nor anything natural. I feel like I should have recognized such a presence sooner, but with everything that’s happened...” Kami looks down in shame.“Wait, what about Acer, Chi-chi, Yamcha, or Mark?”“Yamcha caught a strange illness out of the blue. Bulma seems to know what it is, but until he is cured Acer, Chi-chi, and Mark have decided to try to guard Capsule Corp, Videl being there as well.” Trip comments. “I only recently got this message, I was going to pass it on to you, but you appeared just moments after I recieved it.”Strange illness? Gods you hope it’s not related to whatever the demon trio are up to... You rub your forehead and try to think. Well... you don’t knof if they’d be of any help, but they did come back recently. “Nappa and Vegeta?”(cont.)
>>1112739The answer comes when you sense their Ki... coming from Kami’s palace. The aged Namekian looks back to where they seem to approach from. “Did you find what you were seeking?”“Tch. I found out plenty.” Vegeta grumbles, giving Goku and Raditz the most angry of glares you’ve seen yet. Nappa meanwhile walks to the Saibaman, which almost seemed to be waiting by the palace like a puppy. Peppa glares at Vegeta, holding your leg defensively as he addresses your group. “So what have you fools gotten yourselves into?”“Something that you couldn’t handle, I’m sure.” Raditz replies.“Another tin can you couldn’t beat on your own?” Vegeta asks in a very telling way. Seems you know what he was doing here now. “Feh. Might as well show you clowns how it’s done.”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=95hzQGiKiEg>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST Z #58... 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 be tomorrow ~5:30 pm PST. Did y’all have fun?
>>1112741I did indeed. Kinda miffed we didn't see an android of Colonel Violet, but Android Hasky was actually my second thought. I figured if I had said one, it would be the other.Geets went into the pendulum room? What did he see?I think is the first time I've ever seen Vegeta use something other then the Hypno-Traumatic Crime Taster....I wonder if he'll go see the Darkness yet. His pride would obviously want him to try the water to unleash his true power. It's not an artificial power up after all, it's a super cleanse.
>>1112741Thanks for running, Kato!I had fun. I wonder if Towa ever thinks that Dr. Gero will needs to reinvent himself soon? He's starting to become like Dr. Wily & his Robot Masters.
>>1112741Veggie no, they'll drink you. Had lots of fun, thanks for running.Android Hasky was a surprise, how is Launch taking that?So we have sick Yamcha, Androids on the loose, more demons, AND potentially Cell going by what we saw in the lab. And I guess the Majin, maybe.Also did Nappa adopt that Saibaman? Please say yes.
>>1112779>Also did Nappa adopt that Saibaman? Please say yes.He has to take bucket demon and Blue too!We do not split up siblings!
>>1112745I did consider Violet for a time, but you've interacted with her even less than you did with Silver and Hasky. Plus Hasky has a bit more of a reason to accept the process to make her an Artificial Human.Vegeta tried his hand at fighting Super 13, and actually managed to win. He then felt like he was on a winning streak, and decided to try his hand against your group. Vegeta really does not like Fusion now. He's used the Pendulum Room twice before, first to try and unlock Super Saiyan and second when you tried fighting Cooler there.If he did see Darkness, he might fail the trial.>>1112748>>1112779>>1112786Thanks for playing!Towa has reminded Gero a few times that he's starting to live on borrowed time, and his creations need a bit more work if he wants to truly succeed. Gero's starting to put the finishing touches on his next few creations.Launch is... kinda upset with herself. She started to blame herself for this, but knows that she's going to need to push past it and stop Hasky. Part of her really did hope Hasky was going to reform.Things might not be easy in the next few threads depending on how it all goes.Nappa is deeply concerned over that Saibaman's behavior, and what the blue, mutant Saibaman is doing there. The Green one likes him. The Blue one calls him the Big One.
>>1112819>and decided to try his hand against your group. Oh gosh. Him finally getting to live out his fantasies of turning on us...turned on him.Beautiful. We need to do the exact fusions that beat him now and beat the androids that way.
>>1112819Vegeta killing robots is what DBZ is all about.
>>1112833You know of one of them already, they just never got the chance to do it.>>1112838He will ask if a machine is capable of feeling fear.
>>1112873>He will ask if a machine is capable of feeling fear.Who plagiarized whom(?) in this case?
>>1112873>He will ask if a machine is capable of feeling fear.I'll be more surprised if 19 says, 'Yes.' Then proceeds to put fear into him. And then bam. We show Ghost Dad's influences on Gero's work. Gero is now a yellow latern to our Dad's Red lantern ways.What did Nappa do in the pendulum room? Did he unlock his own power by fighting in the tournament that was going on at the same time?
Could an android chew up some rocks into sand and then blow it out super fast like Wham's Unicorn Horn?
Should we get the sacred water or the UDW to deal with the Aquma?Maybe get Undine to merge with the Sacred Water and purify the fuck out of whatever their using the devil water for.
>>1112741“Vegeta if you go out there you’ll only make them stronger.” Raditz warns.“Maybe if I were as incompetent as the likes of you.” he almost spits in response. “I’m more than capable of getting rid of those tin cans.”The two of them start to argue as Kami and Trip turn their attention back to your group. “In any case, that is the situation.”“Yamcha’s sick, half of us are off fighting Towa’s goons, something is happening near Gingertown, and 17, 18, and 19 are still on the loose.” Tien summarizes, Launch flinching at the mention of that last one.“Plus we’ve got... well, these guys.” you add, pointing to the Bio-man, arguing with the bucket-mop again. What even IS that tiny demon doing there? “And the Majin...” You rub your head. Oooh boy this is a pickle.>A. Well, some of us need to investigate the thing happening at Gingertown. I’ll go>B. If Towa’s goons have the Aquma, then we’ll need something to counter it, like the Ultra Divine Water. I can pay Darkness a visit again>C. I managed to break one of 17‘s Ki absorbers, so that might slow them down. Maybe Bulma and I can work on trying to find a way to stop them completely. General Blue might be of help...>D. Raditz, Goku, maybe it’s time you two let Trip unlock your potential. It might be enough to turn the tide>E. ...Kami, you remember years ago, when you allowed Acer and I to use the Hyperbolic Time Chamber? Maybe it’s time we give that a go again...>F. Something else?
I have a question, if we can detonate the Supernova, could we still do that even if an android absorbs it?
>>1114487After they absorbed it? No, the energy's already been taken in by them.While they're absorbing? It'd be able to at least so some damage to them, but they'd have a majority of the energy absorbed.
>>1114481Goddamn, we gotta do everything don't we.Ask to learn multi-form from Tien later so we can multi-task better.For the Aquma, we should call up Beelz. Or...we ask the bucket demon if he'd like to drink all the Aquma for us.Wait. When did we go into the HTC? I honestly don't remember that.Too bad logic bombs don't work on androids. Maybe it would for 19? Ah well. >Contact Arale, Blue and Eighter and their smarties. Get Senbei, Flappe and even Pilaf all together with Bulma to work on the ki-containers.And....we should see if the kids want to try the UDW challenge. Though I'd rather wait until they were older than us when we did it.
>>1114532If they're older than us when they tackle it they'll have more darkness and impurity.
>>1114538Wouldn't that make the power boost of them getting cleansed even bigger?
>>1114532It's more which one you'll focus on first.
>>1114547Is that how it works or is that what you infer?
>>1114550>"Survive? What is it, some kind of poison?" you ask with a curious look.>"The exact opposite, in fact. It's a purifying drink that taps into some of one's hidden potential to expunge toxins and other harmful things to one's body. It's the concentration of the thing that gives it such danger, but also such potential." Korin licks his paw. Tien seems to be looking at the cat with the upmost attention but also curiosity.....so maybe?
>>1114568So, do you think we should go back for another dose with all these new toxins we have?
>>1114574>>1114574Actually! I wanted to ask that if it works that way or if it'd be useless to us now.
>>1114582It'd make you stronger, but not nearly as much of a boost as you got from the first time.
>>1114590Percentage wise or in straight PL?
>>1114592More or less both. Like, it'd give a 3% boost to your overall strength if you tried it again.
>>1114602>Takes a shot of Aquma, jumps into the Darkness's negative energy and then drink the UDWHowabout now!?
>>1114602Huh, so Earth has more toxins than any other alien planet we've visited. Weird.>>1114481>F. Well, I'm not losing to Vegeta again, I'm off to collect the head of at least one Android, seeya!
>>1114481Well that IS a tough one. I'll support>D.And >>1114532
>>1114481Agh your mind is racing. Maybe you should learn that Multi-form technique from Tien some time. Well... “Kami, you think there’s any way to get in contact with Beelzebub? Maybe he can help deal with the Aquma. If not...” You look to the demon pretending to be a mop and a bucket. “I’ve got an idea.”“I shall see what I can do.” Kami replies.“Oh! And maybe get in contact with Arale’s Kami? If Senbei can help Bulma, and maybe Pilaf and Frappe-”Raditz makes a noticeable gulping sound. “Frappe... is the one who lives near Jingle Village, right?”You, Goku, and the kids all give him curious looks, his brother nodding. “Yeah, where Suno and Eighter are. Ah, been a long time since we-”“I’ll... I’ll get him.” Raditz mumbles out far more nervously than you were expecting....you hold back a smirk as your mind starts to come up with ideas. “Well, hurry back. I think it’s about time you and Goku let Trip unlock your potential, it might help turn the tide.”“Right, I’ll... be back soon.”“You know I could teleport y-”“That will not be necessary!” he blurts out, taking to the air and flying.“Huh... first time he’s acted like that.” Goku comments.Launch glares at you. “What did you do, Maple?”“I am shocked that you seem to be implying such a thing. I’m as in the dark about that as you are!” You didn’t even read his mind. Anyway, Darkness is still an option. Ah, the kids will have to deal with him some day...“If you clowns are done fooling around, I’ll be going. And I’ll be back with their heads as trophies.” Vegeta declares, transforming and starting to fly off.Agh he’s going to get himself in a lot of trouble just going off by himself, and that’ll mean trouble for the rest of you.>A. Fly after him!>B. Let him be, but be ready to teleport him out of there if things take a bad turn>C. You really are curious about Gingertown, maybe should give that a look>D. ...Teleport to Raditz, you’ve gotta see this>E. Teleport to Capsule Corp. Your mind is going to be a lot of help in figuring this out>F. Something else?
>>1114704Instead of going to Gingertown, can we just scry it with Brobro ahead of time? Maybe have Katas Jr. help since he's the one who sensed the thing.>F. Something else?>Clothes beam Vegeta's armor up with all the enchantments and enhancements we've got.
>>1114704You know what, fuck it, go after vegeta to be his Support mageWe could buff him and debuff enemies
>>1114704>B.He needs to learn on his own.And supporting >>1114722
>>1114704Egh... well, if you keep an eye on him and pull him out of trouble before things get worse, you guess he’ll be fine. But still... you very subtly enhance his armor as he flies off, giving it all the enchantments you can manage to give it....but to your surprise, Chiaotzu starts to fly off. “I’ll keep myself hidden, we can learn something about them if I keep an eye on the fight!”“Ch-Chiaotzu that’s dangerous!” Tien shouts.“I’ll be fine, don’t worry!” he reassures Tien, trailing Vegeta.Nappa finishes looking over the Saibaman and stares at the departing two fighters. “Hrmnh. Lil’ guy has guts, but Vegeta has this in the bag.”“Not going with?” Goku asks.“He’ll be fine. I’m more concerned over what’s wrong with this Saibaman.” Nappa comments.“Huh, I have been wondering about that. You know anything?”“Well for starters it’s running on low brain functions. Might not have grown properly, or might have gotten damaged...” He runs off a small list of things he’s noticed, such as muscular atrophy, lack of acid, misshapen pupils...“Guys, I’m gonna meet with Acer and try to scry for the thing going on down in Gingertown. Be back soon, I hope.”Piccolo turns and walks towards where Kami went. “You do that. I’ve got something I need to discuss.” He notices Peppa and Gohan walk towards him. “In private.”You appear at Capsule Corp. next to your brother, Mark giving you a nod as you arrive. Acer stands. “Hey sis. I’ve gotten... well, most of what’s been going on.” he says as he taps his Scouter. “...Dunno if it’s smart to just let Vegeta run off to fight a bunch of cyborg Ki vampires, but he’ll not take anyone’s help I take it. More importantly... Yamcha’s got a Heart Virus.”“Same one my Miguel had.” Mark comments. “Dunno what caused it, but Bulma’s gotten Capsule Corp. to make some medicine for it a while back.”“Probably not contagious, but she’s getting some more ready just in case we show any symptoms.” He cracks his knuckles. “In any case, scrying?”You nod. “Whatever’s going on in Gingertown, best to try and get a look...”You materialize a Crystal Ball like Baba has, you and your brother both focusing your foresight and meditating, placing your hands towards it. You see......What on Earth? There are... people’s clothes just laying around. It’s like everyone just stopped what they were doing and joined the world’s largest nudist colony. There... what is going on there?>A. Okay, people straight-up disappearing is NOT a good sign, somebody needs to get down there, now!>B. Keep focusing, try to see if you can find what caused it. Don't want to make people chase after something that's already left>C. Something else?
>>1114876Fug. It's definitely Cell.>B.
>>1114876>B. Keep focusing, try to see if you can find what caused it. Don't want to make people chase after something that's already leftThis is either some divine being doing crazy perverted shit on Earth for shits and giggles, or we got a certain insectoid bio-android drinking people.
>>1114876>C. The God of Destruction is about to go on a rampage and all the good people of Earth have been Whisked away to Heaven.
>>1114876>BC. Something else?The weird bug shell thing. Maybe it's connected? We never did say exactly where the husk was found after all.
>>1114908SwordAnon, I had thought you above metagaming.
>>1114915Too be fair, we've encountered one bug thing already that was suppose to merge with another android. Then we killed the shit out of it, instead of trying to reform it and gave it to Ghost Dad.
>>1114921Did you see it drink people? No!
>>1114915What about the thing in Wheelo's lab that was detected?
>>1114931That's the husk I'm referencing.
>>1114876https://youtu.be/HODTTBd7BS0...Wait a second, wasn’t there something in Wheelo’s lab about an energy signature? And that bug thing... Aha! “Acer, we need to find what that is, and quick. But I might have a lead...”Okay, that bug thing. You attempt to focus on it, recalling how it looked... and seems you’ve found it. Or what's left of it. There’s a husk, browned and... you see fluids dripping from it. It’s fresh. Something recently came out of it.But that’s not all you see. “Sis... what the hell is that?” Acer asks as a vehicle comes into view in the crystal ball. An old... a very old vehicle of some sort, nearly covered in moss, with a blasted open dome. Most of the writing seems to be covered by the moss... save two things. A number one.And the words “Capsule Corp.” on the side of what seems to be an engine.“Well that’s not ominous in the slightest.” Acer breathes out.>A. Bulma! Bulma! You need to come see this!>B. Brobro, we need to head there, quickly! This seems VERY bad>C. Keep searching, maybe you can find the... pilot>D. Something else?
>>1115028A. Bulma! Bulma! You need to come see this!>B. Brobro, we need to head there, quickly! This seems VERY bad>C. Keep searching, maybe you can find the... pilot>D. Something else?Call Buula! Call SKoT! Call Mirai Gohan and Mirai Bra!!!!! Why didn't they give anything to contact them with?!!?!Damnit Chronoa! Look after our time scroll better! We just had time travelers here!
>>1115040This, 100x this!
>>1115028I'll back this up, too:>>1115040
>>1115028Ohhh crap, crap crap crap! “Bulma! BULMA! You need to come here quick!” you shout, Mark finally walking to you curiously.“Now the heck is that?” he grumbles as the crystal ball is fixed on the Capsule Corp. machine.You keep focusing on this, trying to see if you can get any sign of the “pilot” of it. “This is bad, this is very, very bad...”“Yamcha finally stabilized, give me a... a...” Bulma finally arrives, catching sight of the machine for a moment, Videl and Pantea behind her. “...break.”“I don’t recognize that from any vehicle catalog you guys have.” Acer comments.Bulma seems to sink to the floor. “No... no... please, please no...”“What, what’s wrong?” you ask.Her eyes start to water. “B-before they left... I... I asked to take a look at their... their Time Machines. Just to see what they came in. That... that...”...oh gods. “You don’t mean...”“That matches theirs exactly. Trunks... or Bra... or... agh... please, no...”Pantea holds Bulma by her shoulder. “Mom? What’s going on?”Bulma quickly holds her daughter tight. Both you and Acer feel a slight tinge of fear shiver down your spines... your brother becoming even more focused, intently searching for the thing that piloted that. You try to match the image of the buglike carcass...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jpkeAQG6kQwAnd you see it.A tall, green, figure on a rooftop with a heavily insect-like appearance, large wings and a “tail” of sorts coming out of its back. It seems to be looking for something. Some...one. It spots a person on the ground trying to run... and gives chase.“I’ve seen enough.” you state, standing up. “Brobro, we need to get there, quickly. Before this situation gets any more out of control than it already is.”Acer is... strangely quiet for a moment. “...we can’t just rush into this. If... if it got Trunks... then it’s way stronger than any of us right now.”“You... you don’t know that! Maybe it just... stole it!” You look to Bulma, the woman finally letting go of Pantea, shaking her purple hair.>A. ...but you have a point, Acer. I’m getting Goku>B. I’m going, now>C. Take a moment to calm yourself. Rushing into this isn’t going to do anyone any good. You might still be able to learn more if you scry a bit more...>D. Something else?
>>1115179>if it got Trunks... then it's way stronger than any of us right nowFuck that's a good point, Trunks got the mighty smoothie.>B.Need all the help we can get.
>>1115179>C.>D. Something else?>Show Brobro our fusion's death at the hands of Hatchiyak."We need to master fusion, brobro or we will all die. We should start now. Together we can take this guy out before he hurts anyone else. Then we can deal with Ghost Dad.">Dibs on calling it Apple
>>1115190Do you think Apple could beat fruit-boosted Future Trunks though?
>>1115194Maybe.I didn't think Chuu Lee could beat two Super Saiyans in a row though, so there's that.All depends on Liam really.
>>1115179Oh right, and>B.
>>1115188>>1115216Wait. Does B mean go to weird bug android thing or get help?
>>1115204Fair point. Lets hope the goatly one favors us when it happens.
>>1115232Go after the bugman.
>>1115232Bug ManAlso we're calling him that now.
>>1115235Oh shit, UH>>1115179>A.Misunderstood, sorry.
>>1115179>C. Take a moment to calm yourself. Rushing into this isn’t going to do anyone any good. You might still be able to learn more if you scry a bit more...Seems a little fishy, all of these coincidences piling up. First Gero makes these androids, the business with the Majin, Vegeta comes back to Earth, Yamcha gets a heart virus, etc.
>>1115256We also haven't seen Towa for a bit.There's also the mysterious third party that we haven't gotten out of Green or Blue.....Wonder what info we got on Towa from Wheelo's Computer.
>>1115179You feel like reacting out of gut instinct, you need to take this thing down quickly, and maybe you can grab Goku and-...No.You take a deep breath, calming yourself. “Acer... you’re right. There might be more we can learn if we scry a bit more. Or...”“Or?”You grit your teeth. “Not too long ago, Tien and I used the Pendulum room to try something. To see if we could really experience the... ‘future’ events Gohan told us about.”Your brother’s quiet for a moment. “...How bad was it?”“We did our best, better than even I thought we could do. We even fused. And we lost. All of us.”“...right, you told me about that not too long ago, but-”You share with him your memory of that to drive it home. “It might not be easy, but Fusion could give us an edge against this if we learn it. And we need to master it if we want to have any chance at winning... that.”He’s silent again. “...That bad, huh?”You nod. “First thing’s first, we need to find out more about this thing. Then we practice.”He sighs and the two of you sit back down. “...we’ll get back at him for that, Bulma. I promise.”She seems to have calmed down a bit herself, Pantea and Videl confused, but starting to pick up on the seriousness of the situation. You focus on the thing again. Looks like you missed the act, but the person it was chasing is... gone. Nothing but clothes behind. At Acer’s suggestion, you try to focus back on the Time Machine. And then... there’s an odd thing you seem to feel, a connection to it, but not anywhere close to the bug monster.Your eyes light up when you see who it is... and then start to sense them. Bulma notices the change in your expression and asks, “What is it?”You and Acer smile. “First bit of good news we’ve had today.”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xOgv1RBbD2Q>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST Z #58 END>Twitter account is @KatoQm, will have status updates there>Got some questions for the QM? Characters? Suggestions? Throw them at ask.fm/QMKato and I'll try to answer them as best I canAnd that's all for tonight, folks. I’ll be around for a while for questions and such. Did y’all have fun?
>>1115314Aw, man. That cliff-hanger though.BRA! SAVE US FROM ALL THE EVIL!...who was the guy who got drank? Just a civilian? I feel kinda bad we let him die but sacrifices kinda need to be made for the greater good.Piccolo, you best not be fusing with Kami. Go get Nail and do that shit.
>>1115314Time Patrol has our back!This thread's been great, Kato, thanks for running.How's Vegeta doing against the Androids?Has Goku gotten his potential unlocked yet?What's Raditz so worried about?What about Beelz?
>>1115330Felt it was the right time for it.She was a civilian.Piccolo is considering his options, but nothing has gotten him to that point yet. It's really, really low on his list, bit it IS on it.>>1115334Thanks for playing!Time Patrol is here for a very specific reason, but they could be a little lenient.Vegeta has started a mocking speech about how he'll dispose of these tin cans. 19 keeps unintentionally throwing one-liners at him. Chiaotzu is hiding some distance away.By next thread, he'll have it.He's worried of what you'll find out.Beelzebub actually was visiting Earth currently; Kami caught him at the right time. He and Misa were supposed to be attending a dinner together; they've snuck out when things started getting dull and are having a rather pleasant chat together.
>>1115334>What's Raditz so worried about?Hm.....I guess Raditz is more like his brother then he likes to admit.
>>1115344>>1115346Suno finally for herself a monkey boyfriend?Good for her!...oh man, will that mean the kids can call her Auntie Suno?
>>1115346>>1115361You'll see when it happens.
>>1115361I hope they have twins a red-head girl and a black haired boy.
I hope this is canon Cell, and we confuse the ever loving hell out of him with this timeline. In part because imagine what our Cells would be like in comparison!
