You learned that Giru saw Demon King Dabura fighting the alien Ledgic, and seems both are now under the control of some nefarious force! You then seek out one of the Dragon Balls with Videl, Gohan, and Pantea, encountering a village terrorized by a dinosaur that ate a Dragon Ball! And after the Dragon Ball was retrieved, a ninja using Crane School skills attempted to steal it. Thanks to Keli’s help, you have some leads on this ninja plot, and are about to investigate a movie studio with Cocoa. Good luck, Peppa!
>>3001441You knew something was up with how Launch replied to you. This is probably her getting back at your costumed vigilantism, in her own way. You and Cocoa both look at the bizarre blonde lady standing before you in... well, certainly not a police uniform. More like track shorts and a tank top with a red baseball cap with the word “Tomato” printed on it. She at least has a police badge. Even if she’s wearing it upside down. She seems about as old as Launch. You’re not really sure you’d ever met her before. Maybe your mom had?“So you’re the kid she busted the other day.” the lady comments... then blows a bubble with her bubblegum. “Expected you to be taller. Little short for a superhero.” she remarks after it pops.You’re not sure you like this lady. “...So you must be the escort she told us we had to follow.”Another pop of her bubblegum. “Akai Tomato.”“Son Peppa.” you introduce.“Cocoa Amaguri.” your friend follows.“A’iight. Let’s get this show on the road.” She turns and walks the two of you to a security guard, a shaggy-looking dog-man. “‘Ey you.”“...Yes?” he responds hesitantly.“Open up. We gotta get a move on.” She nods her head over to you and Cocoa.“Oh? The extras? Third lot, usual place, try to be on time.”“‘Kay.” The police woman just... sort of marches forward as he opens the gates, not even attempting to explain why you’re here. You’re starting to wonder if Launch set her as your escort to just keep her out of her hair.“...D-do we follow her?” Cocoa asks, more out of concern as to what she’ll be up to than anything else.>A. Just... just let her be, we can handle this investigation>B. I’m partially wondering if Launch is using this as a test. We follow, at least until we can find a clue>C. Tell the security guard what’s actually going on>D. Something else?
>>3001444>>B. I’m partially wondering if Launch is using this as a test. We follow, at least until we can find a clue>>C. Tell the security guard what’s actually going onNot everything about the ninjas, just enough that he knows we're not actors.
>>3001444>>B. I’m partially wondering if Launch is using this as a test. We follow, at least until we can find a clue
>>3001444>A. Just... just let her be, we can handle this investigation
>>3001444Is our young gay gonna be scared straight?
>>3001525>Is our young gay gonna be scared straight?What does anon mean by this?
>>3001525>I used to be a superhero like you, but then I took a death ray to the kn->Shut the fuck up, no one wants to see your gross scar. Anyway we're gonna show you how lame costumed vigilantes really are. Exhibit A: Suppaman.>Peppa: But I can make it cool!>Lots have thought the same.
>>3001525Gohan is straight. Dunno about Peppa.
>>3001444Well... could just let her be. COULD. But... bah. You sigh lowly, responding, “I’m partially wondering if Launch is using this as a test. Oh well. We follow, at least until we can find a clue.”“Ooookay.” Cocoa comments, starting to walk forward.But before you follow, you look over to the security guard, then whisper quietly to him. “She’s not an actor, neither are we, she’s a plainclothes officer we’re assisting. She’s following a lead, so be on alert for any suspicious individuals.”The dog-man raises an eyebrow curiously, but shrugs. “All right. Just try not to make much of a fuss, kid.”“Thank you sir.” You bow respectfully, then head off with Cocoa, the two of you trying to catch up to Officer Tomato. The three of you pass by a number of studio warehouses and lots, catching glimpses of a few shows and even a movie being filmed.“So you two have practiced for this, right?” the police woman asks. P-practice? Wha-?Cocoa nods. “I’ve been giving Peppa some pointers on the way here. She’s a quick learner.”“W-wai-”Officer Tomato stretches her arms. “Good. Keep your eyes sharp.”...So she does know what she’s doing. You think. Cocoa nudges your arm with her elbow. “Remember, deep breath, calm mind, and still voice. Follow my lead.”“Okay, okay.” Well, guess you’re going to have to put what you’re learning to the test already. You notice a set that looks like a large eastern castle as the officer leads the two of you, with vasious film crews all set up around it. Around the castle are various groups of people in multicolored ninja garb dashing around....Hmm. You... are feeling something unusual here. Not quite that banana smell, but you are sort of getting a familiar sense. No strong Ki signatures, but... a couple that seem unusually low. You then hear a gasp from Cocoa. Your head turns. “What, what’s wrong?”“Eeeeee~!” She’s barely able to contain her excitement as she sees a short-haired blonde man sitting in a chair, talking with what seems to be the director. “Peppa! It’s Barry Kahn!”You frown. “Cocoa.”“I know, I know, but... once we’re done, think we can get an autograph from him?” she asks both you and Officer Tomato.“Eh, if he isn’t in handcuffs.” she replies, then thinks. “...Actually handcuffs could make it easier. Maybe I can get him on some other charge...”“...Is that legal?” you question.“Kid, actors have all sorts of skeletons in their closets. Trust me.” She then... sticks out her tongue. She’s joking. With a roll of your eyes, you try to focus on the clue you might be sensing.>A. Focus on the two lowest Ki signatures you can sense>B. First Erasa and now you. Come on, the guy’s way overrated!>C. Try sniffing out the scent of bananas, or any unusual smells>D. Something else?
>>3001547>A. Focus on the two lowest Ki signatures you can sense
>>3001547>A & B.
>>3001547>C. Try sniffing out the scent of bananas, or any unusual smellsThere might be something more sinister than bananas to be sniffed out. Perhaps the most addictive performance enhancement drug of all time: Creatine.
>>3001547>D. Something else?Approach this with a beginner's mind.It might actually be a good idea to scope out Kahn. If he's a high profile actor, he could be targeted. Ask Cocoa more on Kahn.
>>3001555I'll back this idea too.
Okay, roll me 2d20, best of three. DC is 13 for both.
Rolled 19, 5 = 24 (2d20)>>3001571
Rolled 20, 7 = 27 (2d20)>>3001571
Rolled 1, 10 = 11 (2d20)>>3001571
Rolled 11, 16, 12 = 39 (3d20)>>3001575>>3001578>>3001585Well, you passed one! Writing...
>>3001589Kato! How would Broly react if Maple clothes beamed Goku's outfit onto him and then gives Goku, Broly's outfit? As her literal way of showing Broly that for all their differences the two are very much alike. ...the idea came from /a/ I will admit, due to pic related. Broly looks just like Goku It's a silly idea, but just something that I felt could've worked in the past.
>>3001615In the end, they are both low-class trash.
>>3001618Well Broly only seems to respect people like him, who are just as strong and can challenge him. ...He'd probably just get angrier, but I was thinking it'd have to happen after he got beaten down but not killed. When's a tad more reasonable. The idea seemed clever when it popped into me noggin.
>>3001626Goku and Broly should just fight some more.
>>3001629My other, least likely and more dangerous idea was for them to fuse. Because Karoly is awesome and we can still use the fusion name Kalory.
>>3001615>>3001618>>3001626>>3001629>>3001648Broly would... not exactly be happy with that. But if he can ever be calmed down, might not be... the worst idea, I guess.>>3001547“First Erasa, now you. Guy’s way overrated...” you grumble under your breath.Your friend turns her head. “Pardon?”“Nothing.” You focus your attention on the ninja leaping and flipping around the set. “Cocoa, remember what I told you about sensing Ki?”She nods. “I have been paying attention, yes.”“Let’s try and test this. There’s something suspicious over on that set, and I’d like to make sure it’s not just me sensing it.” You repeat the steps to her as you close your eyes, trying to visualize where the actors are by sensing their Ki.https://youtu.be/8-ess7S0PS0“Ki is energy, the latent energy that flows through everything, a life force present in all. Everyone, everything, has a distinct signature, one that flows with the... environment...” You pause. There is one actor you sense that seems weaker than the rest, but as you open your eyes, you see he’s not quite as in-shape as the rest. Though... there’s another one. You close your eyes again, starting to walk forward. You... you DEFINITELY sense that. Well, rather, you sense the “lack” of it. One of the actors is unnaturally weak. He has Ki, but he’s almost trying to mask it within the environment. It’s like a person with the amount of Ki a baby bird has. You open your eyes. Got ‘em, now to-!“Peppa watch out!”“Oof!” a man’s voice exclaims as you bonk into him, awkwardly headbutting him in the side and knocking him down. Oops. You rub your head and- ...uh-oh. “Watch where you’re going you punk!” Barry Kahn exclaims, jolting right up, putting his hands on his hips, and glaring down at you. “Do you extras have ANY sense of direction?! Are you BLIND, kid?”“Er, sor-”“If this happens again I’ll have you kicked off the set, you hear me?!” He yells out, grabbing you by your outfit and shaking you a little. “KICKED. OFF.”You force your eye to not twitch. Jerk. He lets go and storms off before you can say anything, muttering to himself something about child actors. Cocoa and Officer Tomato approach you. “Should have been watching where you’re going.”(cont.)
>>3001649“Was a bit too distracted. Though I think... I might have found a suspicious Ki signature.” You check again. No, it isn’t Barry... honestly his Ki signature is just average, at best. But there is someone among the actors There’s a man dressed entirely in black and blue, who seems to almost... blend into the rest of the environment. But he doesn’t at all look like someone with a below-average Ki signature. “...What can you feel, Cocoa? Does that person seem at all strange to you?” you point out the suspicious actor.“A... a little.” she responds hesitantly. She scratches the top of her head and tries to focus. “Like... it’s weird. I don’t know if this is exactly what you’re ‘sensing’ but... something about his movements, they’re way more deliberate, focused, like he’s... exceptionally well trained.”“Could be taking performance-enhancers. Creatine.” Akai comments.“Prrrobably not what I’m sensing.” Though that might be something worth looking into. You look over to Barry Kahn. “...Cocoa, mind telling me a bit more about him? Because I have to wonder, could... he be a target of sorts?”She lets out a soft gasp. “N-ninja trying to kidnap a famous actor like him...?! W-well, um... they could be trying to get a ransom from him, he’s made quite a lot of money from his acting career... or...” She looks at you, then over at him again. “...Maybe someone who worked with him and got fired? Revenge? I mean, I don’t put a lot of stock in rumors but-”You rub your head. “One possibility, given what just happened.”“I-I’m sure it was just an accident...” she mutters out.>A. Try and follow Barry Kahn, see if this hunch is right>B. Tail the suspicious actor from a distance>C. Keep trying to smell out any suspicious scents>D. Something else?
>>3001651>A. Try and follow Barry Kahn, see if this hunch is rightGo to apologize to him, gush and pretend we're a fan too and ask for his autograph if we get caught. Might wanna ask Cocoa about his IMBD page. Or whatever the equivalent is. See if he did any other ninja movies. Barry also seems like the guy to quiz people about his own movies to see if they're actually his fans or not.
>>3001651>>B. Tail the suspicious actor from a distance
>>3001651>B.Barry's a butt.
>>3001661Name one movie of his.
>>3001700 The Great Saiyaman Movie
>>3001705But there's no Saiyaman in this timeline.
>>3001707SwordAnon is FakeAnon
>>3001707I know Anon.Twas a jest on my part...No other movie is actually mentioned for him, I think but he probably does Tom Cruise/Brad Pitt type movies.
>>3001651Well. You COULD trail Barry Kahn and try to pursue the lead with him, see if there’s anything suspicious going on around him. Maybe make up some big apology, claim you’re a fan of his, see if you can get anything out of him. Cocoa could probably give you some info on him if he starts asking movie trivia to try and prove it. COULD do all that.But that guy’s a butt. Besides, you have a solid lead on one of the actors already. “Officer Tomato, let’s trail that guy.” you point out the actor with suspiciously small Ki.Cocoa frowns as she sees Barry walk away, but doesn’t leave your group as the three of you start to watch over the ninja, keeping your distance, with the officer pretending like she’s giving you a tour. Cocoa notes that he seems to be heading away from the actors’ main trailers... curious. You keep away as you see him look around cautiously. He then ducks out of the way... and moves quite a bit faster than his Ki signature indicates he should be capable of.You stay a good 30 meters away from him as he starts to run. He enters into a warehouse... wait, what’s that you’re smelling? It’s the faintest hint, but seems to be some kind of... fruit. You smirk. He doesn’t seem DIRECTLY aware you’re around, but he’s being cautious. Still, you might have him cornered.>A. Instant Transmission, catch him in the act!>B. Lower your Ki as much as possible and sneak up on him>C. Officer, when he comes out, can you try questioning him? I wanna check in that warehouse>D. Something else?
>>3001714Is... Is Barry a Saiyantologist?
>>3001720>D. That Giru sure would be useful right now to track him stealthily, oh well.>C. Officer, when he comes out, can you try questioning him? I wanna check in that warehouse.
>>3001720>C. Officer, when he comes out, can you try questioning him? I wanna check in that warehouse.
>>3001720>C.But be ready to Instant Transmission to him if he tries to run.

>>3001720Hmm... how to handle this? Wait, you’ve got it! “Officer, I’ve got a plan, if you’re willing to humor me.”Akai shrugs. “You willing to get me a drink after this?”“What?”“Jokin’. You’re underage.”“...Right. When he comes out, try and interrogate him. I’ll see what he was doing in that warehouse. Sound like a good plan?”The officer blows another bubble with her gum. “Why not?”“Peppa, what if this guy is one of those ninja you’re looking for?” Cocoa asks you quietly.“Play along, he probably doesn’t know you.” You wink. “Put some of your acting skills to work, and I’ll use what you taught me to sneak in.”She squints. “...You better not-”“I’m not using you as ninja bait.” you protest. “I’ll be there if you need any help. Promise.”“A’iight. Let’s get this show on the road.” Officer Tomato declares.You start so sneak around, keeping your Ki low and climbing around the area. You hop up onto a roof a building away from the warehouse, then watch carefully. The ninja exits, with Akai ambushing him by... asking for his autograph. Cocoa plays along. Well, guess that works! You crawl along the rooftop then sneak inside the warehouse, your tail grabbing onto the entrance and helping you swing inside.https://youtu.be/WBuJxRQIxJQAs you land and start to look around. Curious. It does look like it’s in-use, but for a completely different set. You spot large structures around, some of them almost looking like... giant robots? Huh. Pirate robots of some kind? ...Wonder if Giru would be much of a help here. Well, maybe not, he IS kind of loud, but if you could ever get him to shut his- ...that smell. That smell! It’s just like before! You hurry over to where you smell it most strongly, inside a robot’s cockpit. Carefully you open up a panel...Jackpot. Bananas. And... and that’s the costume in Cocoa’s photo! You’re about to leap away and confront the ninja when a glimmer of something catches your eye. Compartment above. Just what in the world is- Oh. Oh no. That’s... that’s a Scouter! Okay just what IS going on here? You take care not to activate it, but stash it away and start to head out towards the warehouse entrance. Poking your head out, seems the ninja’s caught up in conversation with Cocoa and Officer Tomato. You have the element of surprise.>A. Tackle him down!>B. Play along with them, converse and try and catch the ninja saying something he shouldn’t>C. ...Activate the Scouter, see if it’s even real>D. Something else?

>>3001810You clear your throat, making sure your Ki’s low and your tail’s properly hidden by your outfit, and then approach the ninja. Hrmn... how did Cocoa describe it again? Some kind of... rough, rolled trill way of speaking. Well, you can try and trick him up with this. You let Cocoa know you’re coming, then in as boyish a voice you can manage. “Oi oi, ya’ still at it? What’s the hol’ up?”Cocoa raises an eyebrow, a prideful but tiny smirk appearing on her lips. “Ah you know, just wanted to meet with some of the cast and crew before we get started on our part.”“Oh rrrrreally now? Tryin’ ta’ bug some of the experrrts arrre ya?” You place your hands on your hips.“Well, I’m not rreally an expert.” he replies bashfully. You and Cocoa both notice he seems to force himself not to roll his “r’s” as he speaks. Well well. “Only been acting for a couple years, first rreal gig with a famous actor like Barry Kahn.”“Rrrreally somethin’ ain’t he, ya? Nothin’ at all like what I expected fo’ a big-shot rrrrrising sta’ like him.” Yack. Keeping this up is making you want to reach for a glass of water. “Bumped into the guy and he threatens ta’ throw me off the set!”“Haha, w-well, ya’ know what they say about those big name actors! Rrreally let fame go to their ‘eads.” Another couple slips.Akai blows a bubble. “Should you be heading back soon?”Seems she’s playing along too. “Ah auntie, the next scene’s not fo’ another few minutes. Rrrrright?”“Well yeah, but ya’ gotta be rrrrready at a moment’s notice.” And another.“...So why were you down here again?” Officer Tomato asks.“Ah... y-ya see...”“Rrrrreally strrrange, thought this was the way to the trrrrailers.” you add in.He tenses. His eyes seem to go from relaxed to alert, analyzing the three of you carefully. “W-wait a second...”Akai flips her badge upright. “Oh, and one more thing, a couple weeks ago some amateur was caught on camera stealing costumes from this studio.” She leans forward. “Mind if I ask if you know anything about that?”“Amateu-!” he almost starts off indignant, but takes a step back and silences himself. “...You prrrobably should be more careful around these parts, ya’ know?” he starts, moving his hands away from his sides. “The lights here can... mess with ya’ ‘eads! SOLAR-!”You give a quick Kiai and knock him down before he can use the Solar Flare. He flips himself back up, not expecting that but now completely alert.>A. You should listen to the officer. Come along now>B. Somebody have some sungalsses? Don’t wanna risk this!>C. Knock ‘em out!>D. Get Cocoa and Officer Tomato out of here, then teleport to him if he tries to run!>E. Something else?

Okay, not risking them getting hurt! You quickly grab on to Cocoa and the police woman and dash away as you feel the ninja charge up another energy blast. He misses and you easily get them out of there. You then lock on to his very faint Ki as he tries to power down again. You spin around, and, closing your eyes hard to prevent him from blinding you, you teleport to him.He seems to have anticipated that part, as he yells out “SOLAR FLARE!” once you appear... yet he doesn’t quite expect you to land a punch to his gut. Heh, might not be able to see him and can barely sense him, but you’re still able to track him for now. He starts to make a run for it.“Really, using that move in broad daylight?” you ask, locating a trashcan lid. “Here, this is for you!” You fling it like a frisbee at the back of the ninja’s head, knocking him down. He’s hiding his Ki as best he can now, but you can hear him on the ground, groaning in pain. “So, how about you tell me your ninja way, and we can stop this little cat and mouse game, deal?”The ninja is... oddly silent. You can still hear him move, you can smell him there, but... he’s acting funny. He better not be trying one of those talismans. Or... maybe you can see what it does.>A. Taunt him some more, see if you can get him to spill more beans on this ninja plot>B. Open your eyes and make sure he doesn’t use that talisman>C. See what it does, you can probably take him>D.

Every movement you make, I’ll be able to tell. Of course, looks like I’ve stumbled on your real plan too. So why don’t you give up now and spare yourself further humiliation?”You hear grass scrunch underneath his foot. “...You know nothing of the Warrior.” his voice calls out in two directions. You hear his clothes start to ruffle. “And you never will.” You smell something odd... like, apples? Oh crap, gotta stop him now.“Thanks for the tip! But you’re not leaving us that easily!” you shout out, then yell and blast out a Kiai, boosted by Wind magic, all around you. You hear the ninja stumble and fall, and finally chance opening your eyes. You see the ninja sprawled out on the ground... an odd tablet in his hand. A chill runs down your spine, you dart over to the ninja’s body... no, oh thank goodness. He didn’t ingest it. You grab the man and heave him over your shoulder. “Nighty night, ninja. I’m sure the police will have a lot of questions for you~”You fly over to Cocoa and Officer Tomato. The police woman smiles and nods approvingly. “Heh, looks like Launch was right on the money.”“Huh?” You set the ninja’s body down. Wait... was this...?She blows a bubble and then pats you on the head. “Good hunch, good deductions, focused on keeping people out of harm’s way, not bad, kiddo. I’ll owe ya’ a Bloody Mary when you’re older. I can drag him to the station, if you don’t mind.”Cocoa sighs in relief. “So this is all over, then?” She then tilts her head, smiling. “...You did look kinda cool there, Peppa. And thanks for, you know, keeping my butt out of the fire there.”>A. Only “kinda” cool? Well, guess it’s a start>B. We can still try and get you an autograph from Barry Kahn, if you’d like>C.

>>3002147>D. ...Waaait. Wait there was another suspicious Ki signature here, wasn’t there? Maybe this isn’t over yet!>E. But, maybe just observing this loose end you've apprehended will prove more fruitful than a chase right now.
>>3002147>A, B, D,And backing these>>3002159>>3002169
Is Barry Khan currently starring as the handsome lead in a space adventure movie about a handsome, tall, aryan male who's always quick with a quip and solution and has to go save his redheaded partner, a damsel who repeatedly gets kidnapped by space monsters and criminal organizations due to her own naivety and bad luck? The script was written by someone under the pseudonym of Michael Cera.
>>3002147You give her a cheeky smile. “Only ‘kinda’ cool? Weeeeeell, guess it’s a start.”Cocoa sticks her tongue out at you. “Yes, ‘kinda.’ You’re still a bit of a dork.”You return the favor. “This dork’s gonna be world champ before you know it.” You stretch your arms, still grinning. “Still wanna get that autograph from Barry Kahn?”She ponders for a moment. “...You know, if there’s nothing else to do, I wouldn’t mind.”Nothing else? Well you... you... you just realized something. “Crap! There were two unusual Ki signatures! This guy is just one of them! There could be another ninja running around!”Cocoa immediately pulls out her phone, getting the picture she took up. “Let’s see... let’s see... okay, here. So if this guy is the one here...” She points her phone at the captured ninja, and then to the picture she described as the accented guy. They DO have the same build and everything. They match. “Then there are a few more out there... but would they both risk being in the same location?”“I should take this guy to the station before he wakes up then.” the officer states, pulling out a small communication device from her pocket.You cross your arms. Think, Peppa, think... what to do? Hunt the next one down? No, no, he’s probably on alert now. “...Okay, I think I’ve got it. We keep low, get this guy out of here ASAP, but keep an eye out for another ninja like the one in the picture. I’ve got something he might want, but he’ll know better than to try and go after me.”Akai nods. “A’iight.” She tosses you the communicator. “You’re on point, kid. Consider yourself on watch duty. Contact Launch if you see anything suspicious.”You bow. “Thank you, officer.”She starts dragging the ninja away. “Hey, I’ll still owe ya’ a Bloody Mary!”Hmm... you know, that might be a good attack name. Still, now you’ve got a job to do! Stakeout! But where best to do it?>A. Rooftop, keep an eye on that ninja castle set>B. Keep it down low, follow any suspicious individuals from the ground>C. Keep watch on the warehouse with the giant pirate robots, the other ninja could try heading there later>D. Something else
>>3002257>D. Something elseHide in the shadows like a ninja. Or in the light.
>>3002257>A.>D.Make sure Cocoa is okay with a stakeout with us. If she wants to head home, we can take her home first. If she wants to stay, work on Ki sensing with her.
>>3002257>D. Friends first, get that autograph.>>3002261The protagonist is also named Cera.
>>3002287Supporting this too.
>>3002257>>A. Rooftop, keep an eye on that ninja castle set
All righty, roll me 2d20, best of three. DC is 14 for both.
Rolled 1, 11 = 12 (2d20)>>3002320
Rolled 12, 1 = 13 (2d20)>>3002320Rolling
Rolled 16, 6 = 22 (2d20)>>3002320double 1's!
Rolled 7, 19, 20 = 46 (3d20)>>3002325>>3002329>>3002338Well... you passed one of them! Writing...
Huh. Peppa is dead!MC Poll: https://strawpoll.com/w7afdbzg
>>3002340Well, someone (Cocoa?) for a 20.>>3002341Think we just failed to find the ninja.
>>3002353I think the ninja found us.
>>3002353Even worse, we don't have Berry Khan's autograph.
>>3002359We're also most likely gonna get kicked off set.
>>3002369They haven't kicked out the tail-less yanki yet!
>>3002400To complete our look, we should disregard Mama, tear off our shirt's navel, and wear it like a bandana.
>>3002447Nah, let's wear Saiyan Armor like Raditz instead.
>>3002447Does Peppa know clothes beam? It seems like something a young girl wouldn't dream of doing without, given the option.
>>3002447>>3002452>>3002455We should wear the kame school outfit that Roshi gave Maple in her youth.
How 'bout we dress up as Ninja ONCE MORE?
>>3002506Oh god! You figured me out! But there's one last secret technique I can use…
>>3002257“Say, Cocoa, before we do this stakeout, you still wanna get that autograph?” you ask your friend.She smiles bashfully. “W-well... are you sure you wanna do that first?”You shrug. “Hey, why not? Just say you’re a huge fan. Not like the ninja’s going to jump you while I’m around.”She gently jabs you in the arm. “Peppa.”“Come on.” The two of you head off down towards the ninja castle set again, finding Barry in-costume, reciting a few lines. Looks like he’s playing some lead character. Oddly his ninja outfit is... black and orange, and seems he’s being opposed by some like... shark-man ninja with a massive prop sword.“You know full well that this Kubikiribocho cannot be beat!” the shark man declares.“Try saying that five times fast.” you comment to Cocoa.Without skipping a beat, she starts, “Kubikiribocho, Kubikiribocho, Kubikiribocho, Kubi-”“Okay, okay! Jeeze, it was a joke.” You cross your arms and out. “How’d you even do that?”“Practice makes perfect~” she teases.Once the two are over with their scene, you keep to the shadows and watch as Cocoa hesitantly approaches Barry Kahn. She seems to talk with him for a moment. You try to keep your eyes open for any suspicious movement, sensing around for anyone with unusually low Ki... but your attention keeps getting drawn back to Cocoa. For just a brief moment you sense something odd with one of one of the actors. One of the men, a bit older than Barry... maybe late 20s? He seems unusually tense. Maybe he-Your attention’s drawn away from him as you notice Cocoa approach... head hung low, a frown on her face. Yeouch. “...Take it he said no?”“Unless you happen to have an extra 23,000 Zenni to spare.”What. “...I, uh, have 2000.”Cocoa hangs her head again. “Then forget about it.”You bite your lip. Charging that much for an autograph? Sheesh. “...Hey, Cocoa, if you’d rather head home, I can take you. It’s a short-”She shakes her head.“...Wanna sit up on the rooftop and continue this stakeout?”Cocoa nods.“All right, grab on.” With her arms on your shoulders, you leap up onto the roof with her, letting her get down as you take a position watching over the set. Your eyes focus on the suspicious actor from before. Seems he’s calmed down.(cont.)
>>3002534“...Sorry.” Cocoa mumbles out.“Hey, not your fault he charges that much for an autograph.” you reply. Barry’s definitely a butt.“Not gonna say ‘I told you so’ or anything?” she asks hugging her legs to her chest and pouting.“Noooot unless you want me to.” Hrmn... that guy’s acting suspiciously again, he’s looking up and around, like he’s expecting to see someone watching him. He twice seems to look over to where you were standing in the shadows. “...Cocoa, can I see that picture again?”She hands you her phone, staring off into the distance. “Guess that was a bit of a wake-up call.”“Whatcha mean?” You carefully analyze the picture. He... COULD be one of the ninja in it.“That... no, nevermind. I’m sorry, just... kind of internalizing a lot of thoughts.” She lets go of her knees and looks with you, you pointing out the suspicious actor.“...Want to try working on sensing Ki?” you ask hesitantly, trying to get her mind off this.“Sure.”“All right, from the top...” You go over the basics once more, trying to get her to sense one of the more noticeable actors... ah, that shark-man! He’s actually a little tough. It takes quite a while, most of the shooting over by the time she manages it, but...https://youtu.be/VR1dX3TA2O8“Energy flowing through all things, energy of life, energy of... of...” She lets out a gasp. “I... I can kinda feel it.”You grin. “Tell me what you sense.”Cocoa closes her eyes again. “He’s... moving to the left, to the right, jumping back...” You do a little fist pump. She’s got it. “I can... sense someone else... wait, where’d he...?”Wait. Wait, did that...? Your eyes focus on where you last saw the suspicious actor. No no no no! Agh! You JUST had him! Where’d he go?! You try and look over to the warehouse with the pirate robots... no, you can’t see him, can’t sense him. He’s gone, energy vanished, and you have no scent to go off of. Nuts.>A. Try and follow, he’d got to have gone over to the warehouse!>B. Call it a day, you have a lead on him, and have one ninja captured>C. Congratulate Cocoa, she’s got a basic but genuine ability to sense others’ Ki>D. Something else?
>>3002539>C. Congratulate Cocoa, she’s got a basic but genuine ability to sense others’ KiWe could have our own Chuu Lee in the making with Cocoa. >A. Try and follow, he’d got to have gone over to the warehouse!>D. "Any more acting tips that can help?"
>>3002539>C. Congratulate Cocoa, she’s got a basic but genuine ability to sense others’ Ki>A. Try and follow, he’d got to have gone over to the warehouse!
>>3002546>We could have our own Chuu Lee in the making with Cocoa. Eh, acting is tuff enough as is, can't really multi-class.
>>3002551Just enough to let her play the leading lady action role then? She could do all her own stunts and be like Pamput.
>>3002539>C & A.Also, we have to do the Ninja rap now. See if the real ninja gets irritated by it.>>3002569Only if she wants to. Give her the option, but don't try to coerce her into it.
Okay, one more roll of 1d20, best of three! DC is 16!
Rolled 10 (1d20)>>3002602

>>3002602Ah, I see, Alola! has the hands in fists while Bingo! has them in salutes.
Hey quick heads up: Kato has a Zelda quest too sometimes which is also good, but lately we're lucky to even have three people participating in a given thread. Show it some love, maybe?
>>3002539Okay, okay, no panicking. First thing’s first, you high-five Cocoa. “Congratulations! You’ve got the basics down! Hah, and in a single afternoon, too.”She rubs the back of her neck bashfully. “Guess I did have someone who’s been doing it almost her whole lift teaching me how.”You grin at the praise. “Okay, we can’t stay here until the sun sets going back and forth with this. There’s a lead, I think I saw one of the ninja, and we’ve got a clue on where he might be. Come on.” You have Cocoa get on your back again and leap down, then start to stealthily make your way towards the warehouse. Creeping along the way to the entrance, you have Cocoa stay behind you to keep herself safe. Okay, almost there. Just gotta check inside the warehouse for-...What’s that weird sound? It’s almost like a strange... ticking... wait. Wait a second. You dart inside and try to locate the sound, urging Cocoa to stay away. Crap crap crap if it’s a bomb you need to stop it, fast! The ticking’s getting louder... it’s near one of the robot props! Push it out of the way, jump down and-Wait.That’s a weird bom-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W7PbF1m67i8Suddenly there’s a loud blast of sound and an intense flash of light. AGH IT’S A FLASHBANG! GAH, DAMN IT, YOUR EYES! YOUR EARS! You stumble around out of the warehouse, disoriented, but mostly unharmed. Save for your pride. Oh your pride. Outsmarted by a ninja. He knew you were coming here. And he’s probably LAUGHING at you for that.Cocoa notices you walk out, rubbing your eyes. “...Didn’t find him?”>A. I’m heading to Capsule Corp and going to ask Bulma and Pantea to help make me something to keep this from happening again>B. Can we... can we just go back to your house? I think I’m done here>C. YOU’LL PAY FOR THIS YOU NINJA BUTTHOLE! YOU AND ALL YOUR NINJA FRIENDS!>D. Something else?>>3002708Sadly time's been a bit limited for me recently, so haven't exactly been able to run them back to back. Trying to make time for that one too though.
>>3002718>Of course you realize, this means WAR.>A.Sunproof goggles.Offer to take Cocoa back home if she wants.
>>3002718>>B. Can we... can we just go back to your house? I think I’m done hereHolster the A idea. Right now we need a drink. Non-alcoholic of course
>>3002718It's fine, I don't mind the pacing either way. Just a bit sad that awesome adventurer princess quest is a bit lonely when it does run.
>>3002718>A. I’m heading to Capsule Corp and going to ask Bulma and Pantea to help make me something to keep this from happening again>Consider if a scouter specialized in picking up suppressed ki is possible.
>>3002759It's all right. So long as players are having fun, I'm okay with things being a little slow there.>>3002718You rub the temples on your head and count down from 10. Okay. He bested you. Bite the bullet and admit that to yourself. You acted rashly, and got tricked. But you can come back from this. Deep breath. “...I’m going to ask Bulma and Pantea to help me invent something so this doesn’t keep happening. Maybe like... some goggles, or a new scouter, or something. Just so these ninja don’t keep trying to blind me. Maybe something to like... find suppressed Ki. If that’s even possible.” You’re calm. You’re calm. Deeeeeep breath. “Do, uh... do you want me to get you back home, Cocoa?”She pokes her forefingers together. “W-well... was kind of supposed to be just this trip to the studios, but... maybe I could ask my parents if I can extend it a bit. You know, a trip to Capsule Corp could be fun. Can’t be any more hectic than this.”You raise an eyebrow. “...You’re tempting fate by saying that, you know that, right?”“Oh shush.” She pouts at you.Heh. You get what she’s doing. “...Thanks. Probably wouldn’t hurt to get a drink or something, too. Gah, my throat’s still feeling weird from attempting that accent. How do you manage it so easily?”“Loooots of practice~” She nudges her elbow in your arm. “Though yeah, try not to dry your throat out by forcing it. You’ll keep needing to get some water if you do.”“Eheh. Okay, okay, got it. You get the clear from your parents and I can have you over there in no time.” As she gets her phone out, you look around the area, then back at the warehouse where the ninja set the flashbang trap. Under your breath, you mutter, “Of course you realize, this means war, Mr. Ninja.” You’re calm. Yes. But you ARE going to get back at him for that. Count on it.>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST KAI #3... Paused.>Twitter account is @KatoQm, will have status updates there>Got some questions for the QM? Suggestions? Throw them at ask.fm/QMKato and I'll try to answer them as best I canAll right folks, that's all for tonight. We’ll be continuing tomorrow starting ~5:30 pm PST. I’ll be around for a bit for questions and such. Did y’all have fun? Also, if y’all would like, I can switch up QMC to either Gohan or Izumi for tomorrow. What would y’all prefer, Gohan, Izumi, or continue as Peppa tomorrow?
>>3002850Cocoa is a good friend. Great times were had Kato, Peppa is fun, and the ninja plot thickens, even if we have captured one now. I'd prefer more Peppa, but I wouldn't be opposed to checking on what Gohan is up to.
>>3002850I'd say it's a good spot to swap to Gohan.
>>3002866>>3002915I would love to see what Gohan is up too....He'd need his own pastebin tho.
>>3002850I wanna play as Izumi. Can we tame dragonquest monsters with her and put them into capsules?
>>3002850Actually, might as well check on this idea. How possible would it be to train Cocoa like Swordanon asked >>3002546 >>3002569 ? You know, if she wants to.
>>3003587Well for now we should be focusing on our own training for world saving purposes, probably.
>>3003674True, but I feel it's worth checking on just in case.
>>3003674>>3003674I feel like the more we go over basic stuff by teaching others, the more Peppa improves on the fundamentals.Like if we taught Baozi how to go through each stage of ssj.>I am SUPER BAOZI! Would be super cute to see...
>>3002850>miss the start of the thread>the ninjas aren't finished after allARGGGGH! Good stuff anyway, it was nice to see Coco punching above her weight class and making up for Peppa's shortfalls. She's a good friend!Several questions were answered and it looks like we have the ability to make some headway on this in the future. Probably best for Peppa to back off for a little while and let others do some legwork. But that doesn't mean she can't stay on the alert:>We know of four (4) ninja so far: Banana/Two-Star Ninja (Medium build/Male); two (2) Klendathu Assassins (Female/Male); Apple Ninja (Male/Short/Delinquent)The other ninja on set may be Banana, but may also be a fifth ninja, because the outfit was left behind. The two on Klendathu may have been multi-form, or are actually dead. Possibly the wish they're aiming for?>Apple Ninja is going to be a good source to pump for information, but leave that to the pros. But maybe it would be possible to check his real identity against the Crane School Student Registry?Launch can probably handle the interrogation better than Peppa could, but it would be nice to feed some information to Keli. She seemed pretty concerned about someone stealing/revealing Crane School techniques. She could be the eyes and ears in Mifan if the ninjas abandon the movie set base and watch for any strange behavior. This also may flush out a mole, so caution should be exercised.>There was some really good progress on sensing strange power levels to find the ninjas, so maybe there's some training to be done there by focusing on absence or aberrations?Peppa's already got good control, but these guys feel like they might be on another level. There might be something to learn and utilize in training, especially with how draining new forms have proven to be. The best way to learn is to practice and experience it yourself after all!As an aside, there was also that malevolent power level in Jingle Village that disappeared too, right before Giru. Could they be tangentially related?And, so that it's available if the worst comes to pass, it might be good to spend some time talking to Maple about the talisman that inflicts Jiang Shi symptoms. Is it temporary or permanent? Do the symptoms come all at once, or over time? What do early onset symptoms look like? Could it be considered a curse, and therefore broken, because it's self inflicted? We can't always get lucky, so better to be prepared. Probably also need to talk to Trip about the fake ball and figure out what to do with it for the time being.
>>3003800Help Baozi and Daikon learn the new forms together. Hey, Kato, are they close enough in size for fusion?>>3003892That they had a Scouter is what's drawing my attention. Also the ninja we captured mentioned something about a Warrior, so maybe there's some kind of person they're trying to revive.
>>3003987I'd be concerned about the scouter too, but there's a couple reasons I'm not. Maple handed her scouters to everybody. "Hey kid, want a scouter?" was almost a substitute for "Hello, nice to meet you!" Someone was bound to find or use one for their own (evil?) means at some point.Further, Mifan is a space port - they'll have eclectic space things. If not readily apparent by Vegeta and Nappa's trip(s), things are a mess up there without the Damoclesean threat of the PTO hanging over the planets. On that note, maybe there's some kind of black space-tech market to investigate? Might be neat for a date spot!The Warrior bit is good, but is that more of a path of the Warrior (because most of the ninjas have been trained fighters), or a physical person? If it's a person, King Kai might have some details, or know some kind of legend. Neither are really something Peppa can investigate on her own without Apple Ninja spilling some beans or some outside help.
>>3003987The scouter could be our path of least resistance.Turn it on and bait the ninja's to listen. Then with Cocoa stage the perfect trap with scripted dialogue.
>>3004079ninja's scouter operators
>>3004070That's a good point. Though I have to wonder if any of those Scouters we handed out were ones capable of Dragon Ball detection. It could explain how they're hunting Dragon Balls if so. Or... maybe one of them reverse engineered that? Something to look into. >date spot!Not exactly the most romantic place for it, but hey, it's a start.I'm betting a person. Maybe some ancient hero or something. Might the ninja be trying to... take control of Olibu or someone like that?>>3004079I'd worry the ninja might be planning for something like that. The flashbang is reason enough for me to think we should analyze it first, turn it on later.
>>3004262maybe ask mama Maple if she's gotten her next 3.0 version to locate all scouters? Need to get scouters internet or wifi capable..make every scouter its own hot spot?And learning from the flashbang. We saw how effective a mini solar flare is. Could we mimic a flashbang's effect of sound and light through magic, Kato? A decoy ki blast sort of move.
>>3002866>>3003892>>3003987>>3004070>>3004079>>3004262Glad to hear y'all are having fun! And those are some good questions, keep them in mind for later. Very glad y'all are being thorough with this.>Hey, Kato, are they close enough in size for fusion?Baozi is 122 cm and Daikon is 128 cm, so they are close enough in height to be able to fuse.>>3002866>>3002915>>3003327>>3003365Okay, so far that's 2 for Gohan, 1 for Peppa, 1 for Izzy.>Can we tame dragonquest monsters with her and put them into capsules?Har.>>3003587I'll be up-front with this: Cocoa doesn't quite have the natural talent and mindset to pull off the substantial growth that Chuu Lee managed, and she's very aware of this and doesn't particularly want to dedicate time to trying to become a warrior like Peppa. She's fine with learning about it, to a degree, but she isn't exactly going to be taking on any tournaments if she does. Lime is a bit more open to training and learning martial arts, but she doesn't exactly want to try and play catch up either.>>3004293You could, potentially. Maple and Chi-chi may have already developed something like that.
>>3004595Baozi + DaikonBaokon?Daizi?
>>3004595>Very glad y'all are being thorough with this.Remove Ninja. Or at least understand why they're misbehaving.
>>3004843These ninjas broke the cardinal rule.They got caught. If they don't stop, we'll put a spotlight on them.
>>3004595I'm fine with Gohan too.
>>3004622Baikon works too.>>3004781Man, is that webcomic even still around?>>3004843>>3004877It might be a bit more complicated than you think, but y'all are on the right track.>>3004890Okay then, that makes three. We'll be starting with Gohan!We're back!https://youtu.be/L4Fl2EmBSYY“All right, what’s bothering you?” Pantea asks, twirling a finger in her purple hair.“Nothing.” you reply, eyes fixed on the screen before you. Well, okay, there IS something bothering you. You have no damn clue on what you’re supposed to be doing here. You switch your lead over to the Gerudo King again and start attacking the walls. Maybe one of them is breakable...She lets out a deep sigh. “Gohan, come on, you’ve been at this for 8 minutes now.”“Why is it so hard to find a key in this dungeon?” you grumble out. “I’m having flashbacks of the Water Temple.”“Back one room, bombable wall.” Pantea directs you, leaning back on the couch.To humor her, you switch back to Linkle and head out to the previous room. But only to prove a point. Come on, there’s no way you missed- “...Oh.”“You missed that entirely. I figured you were just looking for something in that room, but you took 5 minutes too many. What’s bothering you?” she asks again. You... hesitate a response, instead heading into the newly opened room. Pantea leans forward, placing her elbows on her knees and resting her chin on her palms. “I’m going to start guessing if you don’t give me an answer.”“Nothing big.” you reply dismissively.“Figured you’d have Zelda in the party by now?” she asks with a slightly teasing tone, a smirk appearing on her lips. “Weeeeell she and Linkle do have a moment after this Temple.”“Oh shush.” you grumble as your cheeks redden a little. Damn it. Now you HAVE to see what she’s talking about.“Hah! Knew it. You and your weakness for blondes~” she teases further, poking your cheek. “Waaait... is it that Erasa girl? My my, Gohan, going after the an older girl?”“Pantea.”She ruffles your red hair. “Teasing, teasing. There is something on your mind, though. Come on, tell me. You’re not going to be ready for the boss if you’re this distracted.”>A. I mean it, it’s nothing>B. Fine. I’m... starting to worry I won’t be able to catch up...>C. I... feel like I should be doing something to help look for the Dragon Balls>D. ...Erasa, huh? Well she is- Wait, no, focus! Focus!>F. Something else?
>>3004929>B & CTempted to vote D too see what Pantea's reaction is. Could we like, make a teasing remark about it?
>>3004929>D. ...Erasa, huh? Well she is- Wait, no, focus! Focus!>F. Hit Pantea with a snappy comeback.Gohan is at that age but Pantea is too, and she's like a best friend. Tease her right back!>C. I... feel like I should be doing something to help look for the Dragon BallsPeppa's got a tendency to charge off on her own and makes things more urgent than they should be. It's possible to buy some extra space for everyone to breathe if someone's there to think smart.
>>3004929>B.>F.Remember Konpei's words>Gohan... do not envy the growth of others, but focus yourself instead on improving. If you doubt yourself, it will hamper your growth. You have many years ahead of you, work to use them to their fullest.”
>>3004929>F. Wait, is Zelda even blonde in this one?
>>3004929>B. Fine. I’m... starting to worry I won’t be able to catch up...>C. I... feel like I should be doing something to help look for the Dragon Balls
>>3004985Hey, Zelda was originally a redhead. What if redheads are Gohan's type?
>>3005038Gohan's type is purple-haired girls.
>>3005044Nah, it's sparking blondes.
>>3004929>F. I wanna wear my sister's skin as everyone tells me "Good job, Peppa!"
>>3004929Erasa, huh? Well... now that you’re thinking about it, she is- wait, hey! You squint at her... then smirk. “I can assure you, any weakness I may have for blondes is nothing compated to yours for a certain handsome redheaded adventurer.”She squints back, blushing slightly and crossing her arms. “...A-Adol’s cool, okay.”“Cool. Sure.” you remark with a chuckle. “Besides, not every Zelda’s a blonde.”“So you did have a thing for little miss Twilight Princess~” she nudges you in the elbow. You keep a straight face. “All right, so it’s not a crush on an older girl. Spit it out. What’s bothering you, Gohan?”“...A couple things, I guess.” you reply with a sigh. “Sis is off on her little hunt for the ninja, but... I dunno, I feel like I should be doing something. She tends to jump into every little thing like it’s super urgent, sure, but... she was kinda right on the money this time. And we’re still not really any closer to figuring out what all is going on here.”Pantea leans back again. “That’s understandable. Mom has been trying to figure out how they’re hiding the Dragon Balls, and I have to admit, that they can even track them down on their own is... troubling. What’s the other thing?”You bite your lip gently and pause for a while, clearing this room of enemies. “...Want me to be honest?”“Well, you’re terrible at lying.”“Fine. I’m... starting to worry I won’t be able to catch up. I haven’t been slacking or anything, hell, I’ve even redoubled my efforts... but all I’m doing right now is playing catch-up. To sis, to dad, and now to Vegeta, I guess. I know I’ve been told time and time again to try and focus on just improving myself, not be envious of others, but-”“Pause it.” Pantea tells you, her voice... quite a bit more serious.“E-eh?”She stands up. “Pause the game.”...Crap, did you make her mad? You pause. “S-sorry, I-”“Come on.” she starts to walk off.>A. I didn’t mean it like that, really!>B. Follow, don’t make this any worse>C. A-are we going to check on the Dragon Radar or something?>D.

>>3005073>Pantea has a crush on AdolHahahah.>>3005079Supporting.
>>3005073Curse Gohan's hypercompetivie blood/family!>>3005079Sounds good.
>>3005095What does she know, Second Place is First Loser.
>>3005073Welp. You’re in the doghouse now. You lower your head a bit as you follow. Did Future you have these kinds of problems? ...That’s a dumb question, Gohan. He had far worse things to worry about. Faaaar worse things. Pantea leads you down a level, heading towards Bulma’s lab... and walking right past it. Ooookay, she’s got something different on her mind. She finally stops when the two of you reach... the Gravity Chamber?Pantea hits the intercom on it. “Dad, shut it down for a bit. We’re coming in.”“Oh hey squirt, what’s-” you can hear Yamcha’s voice reply, then stop suddenly. “...Ah. I know that look. Okay, just a second.”She crosses her arms, looking over to you with a VERY serious glance. “...Want me to get you a spare training outfit before we start?”“E-eh?” Wuh-oh.>A. J-just the two of us?>B. ...How high are you going to set the gravity?>C. T-training outfit would be fine, sure!>D. Pantea you don’t have to do this, I’m sorry, really>E. Something else?
>>3005138>B. ...How high are you going to set the gravity?
>>3005138>B & C.If she's offering, best to take it.
>>3005138>C. T-training outfit would be fine, sure!>No Supah Sayahn
>>3005138Guess Gohan really stepped in it.>C. T-training outfit would be fine, sure!>B. ...How high are you going to set the gravity?>E. How hard are we going to go, Pantea?Gotta make sure we've got the right mindset going in.
>>3005138>C. A weighted one, the heaviest you got. >E. "Wanna equal exchange? Had my eyes on a couple of those long ranged moves you got. I can show you shine spark."
>>3005153Backing this idea too.
>>3005138>E. You think I haven't tried weight training!? No, there's something more to it all, a will to overcome, but everytime I try to cross that line, the line's suddenly two steps forward!
>>3005207but have we tried doing it without going ssj or transforming for as long as possible?
>>3005138“S-spare training outfit would be fine, sure!” You gulp. Crapbaskets. Using the Clothes Beam, Pantea makes you a jumpsuit, waiting for you to get changed before she heads in. “...How high are you going to set the gravity at?” you question hesitantly.“What did Vegeta say the gravity he trained under was, again? 900x?” she asks you, nodding to her dad.“...Pantea that’s way too high.” Yamcha tells her. “Try a bit lower to start.”“Fine, but we’re going to reach 900x Earth’s gravity at some point.” she states adamantly. “What’re you setting it at, dad? 400x?”“Four-fifty.”You hold up your hands. “N-now hold on just a second, how hard are we going to go at this?”She looks over to her father, then to you, eyes still harsh and serious. “Until the three of us make some real progress.”Yamcha points to himself. “...Three?”Pantea nods, has the door close, and readies the controls. “Unless you want me in here with a boy all alone.”He sighs. “All right, all right.” Rubbing the back of his neck, Yamcha looks down at you. “...Sorry kiddo. Not that I don’t trust you, but, you know.”>A. I really do mean it, I’m sorry>B. Er, how strong have you gotten, Mr. Yamcha?>C. Fighting stance, ready yourself>D. Pantea, we could Equivalent Exchange for something>E. Something else?
>>3005228>C. Fighting stance, ready yourself>Second rule of EE: You reap what you sow, so sow with all your might!
>>3005228Haha, garbage.>C. Fighting Stance, ready yourself>E. Ask what she has in mind for practice.Talking got us into this mess. Hopefully listening will get us out.
>>3005228>C. Fighting stance, ready yourself>D. Pantea, we could Equivalent Exchange for something>E. Something else?Take our headband and tie it around our eyes.

>>3005234>>3005238Are you sure it's time to be Equivalent Exchanging when she's already teaching us a lesson?
>>3005262Wouldn't hurt to ask if she can incorporate it, if not then we'll follow her curriculum.

>>3005228https://youtu.be/uvZXMUelv50You take your fighting stance and try to calm yourself. Yamcha does the same, readying himself, as Pantea finally turns on the Gravity Chamber. A red glow envelops the room as you feel the intense pull on your body. 450x Earth’s gravity. All right, here it goes. “What kind of training you planning on, Pantea?”Her aura flares up around her, and she forms a pair of Spirit Bits... wait, or is that Yamcha’s Spirit Ball? “Let’s start the warm-up with some reflex training.” Spirit Balls. Definitely. She flings them forward and you dodge out of the way, Yamcha taking the hint and working with his daughter, dashing at you as you try to dodge both his attacks and her Spirit Balls, even with how heavy you feel thanks to the increased gravity. Though you’re getting a few close calls from Yamcha.“Wow, you’ve been training quite a bit, Mr. Yamcha.” you remark, dodging a jab aimed for your torso. “How far have you come? Think you and Tien are still even? How about you and mom, or Uncle Acer?”“Heh, I’m probably still about Tien’s level.” he remarks. “Especially since ol’ triclops got that Gravity Chamber at his dojo.”“And I’ve gotten ahead of you again, dad!” Pantea yells out, both Spirit Balls now targeting you AND Yamcha.Yamcha lets out a sigh... and then gets smacked in the back of the head with one of the attacks. “Gyah! Ow! Hey!”As he stumbles forward a bit, you grab on to his arm and fling him down at the other Spirit Ball. It dodges him as he hits the ground and chases after you, with you flipping out of the way, heading over to Pantea. You duck under it as it flies forward, and you sense Pantea right behind you. Direct hit, she’s sent back! Hah, got- ...her? What the? She reacted like she got hit but... was that an afterimage? But it had Ki and mass...“Nice try!” Pantea yells out in... front of you? She’s smirking confidently, and directing the Spirit Ball again.“Okay, that’s a new trick I have to learn. Wanna exchange for it?”She waves her finger with her free hand. “You’ll need something pretty good to match this one.”>A. Keep dodging, she’s probably going to turn up the intensity of the Spirit Ball’s attacks>B. Trade ya’ the Shinespark for it!>C. All right, up the intensity! Transform!>D. Go on the offensive!>E. Something else?

Did we just break the Gravity Chamber?
SUPER SAIYAN LEVEL FOUR! HE SKIPPED THREE!!!
>>3005463Alternatively, he could just kick ass while base.
>>3005476MAX Power CronoRoshi would be proud.
>>3005478Or if he's just high-level dodging, would it be instinctual?
>>3005362https://youtu.be/kvfQmSF2NcQOooh that is COOL. But you’re not letting your guard down! Pantea keeps flinging the Spirit Ball at you, and ups the ante by charging at you as well. “Dad! Up the gravity!” she yells out as you block an elbow strike, the Spirit Ball just barely missing your head.Yamcha gets to his feet, shaking his head. “Yeesh, kid.” Yamcha makes a quick dash to the controls. “500x!” You feel even heavier, but you don’t let up. You sidestep away from a dropkick from Pantea, and then again from the Spirit Ball. You keep your mind sharp, but let your body react reflexively from each blow you see coming, and every one you can feel coming after that.“H-heh, think you could trade me that technique for the Shinespark?” you ask her with a cocky grin. You... you’re getting a little excited!“Depends on if you can KEEP UP!” she roars, chopping at you. You dodge it, but then realize you have to dodge again as that was an afterimage, barely avoiding a kick to your gut... and then AGAIN dodging to avoid a spin-kick to your head from Yamcha that followed it up. He then brings out two Spirit Bits of his own, Pantea bringing up her second one again. Four Spirit Balls fly at you as the two of them keep pressing on! You won’t give up! YOU CAN DO THIS!“RRAAAAAHHH!” the three of you yell, Yamcha and Pantea just barely avoiding a cross-counter from you as you push away, slashing away two of the Spirit Balls with your tail as you chop at the other two. You finally bolt forward as you see an opening, kicking at Yamcha. He blocks, but you use his arm to bounce yourself off and lunge at Pantea. Opening! You thrust your fist forward... and it meets her own, a shockwave rippling through the Gravity Chamber. Good thing Bulma reinforced this place. Don’t want to break anything.Pantea... smiles. “Power up, Gohan. High as you can go... and then push even higher!”>A. Power up! Transform!>B. ...W-was that what this was all about?>C. Yamcha, up the gravity!>D. Something else?
>>3005501>A. Power up! Transform!
>>3005501>D. ...don't need it. *Listen to your instincts more.*
>>3005501>D. Give in to the excitement and give Pantea your biggest smile.>A. Power up! Transform!
>>3005501>A.Also, idea. Mix afterimages with mass with after images that are like, little Ki bombs. Mess with an opponent's head!
>>3005501>C.>A.>D. Remember how Peppa had to be pushed to SSJ 3? Maybe Yamcha and Pantea can do that for you. Tell them to send out all the spirit bits and balls they can at you.
Roll me 1d20, best of three. DC is 11.
Being a meathead concerned about powerlevels is what got us into this funk, fighting while relying on our reflexes and instincts could be the key to becoming truly strong.

>>3005526I agree with you.And RoshiBut the training for power levels that we do, helps to perfect that.
>>3005526There's a point to be made there. There's also something to be said for listening to your friend who set this up for you.
>>3005546I dunno, I thought the lesson was that we can we can dodge strength and strike at weakness?
>>3005554>“Power up, Gohan. High as you can go... and then push even higher!”
>>3005561Eh, just seems like the lesson was going one way and that statement went another. I guess we're not learning anything.
>>3005554It's a good lesson to learn, but Gohan was worried about not being able to keep up with the rest of the company. Pantea is trying to help address that, so this payoff is probably just as much for her as Gohan.She just wants to help. Trust the childhood friend.
>>3005554>>3005572I feel by exploring the emotions each form Gohan experiences, he'll be able to know himself and trust his emotions, even at the extreme levels of ssj 3.So he can work on instinct regardless of form. SSJ disrupts pure heartedness and SSJ 3 draws on a very primal power. A primal instinct.From the ask.>Super Saiyan 3 is a form similar to the previous two in that it draws upon anger, but it's unique in that it doesn't require a new "level" of rage to bring out all this hidden power (as that leads down a different sort of "path" of Super Saiyan). There is instead a more primal power that it taps into, hence the brief mental flash of one's Oozaru state when first truly tapping into it. It can best be summed up as a desire to break one's limits and release as much of their hidden strength as possible, a sort of drive to "be the best." For Peppa in particular, the specific trigger that got her to tap into it was finally feeling a true "need" to get stronger and go even further beyond.
>>3005501https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3s2Ksz7rpckYou can’t help but give your biggest, dumbest smile. All right, full power then! Keep pushing yourself... hit your limits, and go... even further beyond! You look over to Pantea’s dad. “Yamcha, hit it up another notch!” As you feel the weight build higher and higher, you see your limits... and you push past! “RRRAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!”It all... feels like it happens so slowly. You see things flash before your eyes, you feel power coursing through your veins, you reach above your limits! You... you did it. Pantea looks at you, barely able to stand, even as you see her aura flaring around her, but the smirk on her face is all you need to know that you’ve hit it. But... that’s not all. No, there’s more to this. “Gohan. Try and use it.”“Y-you sure?”She nods. “Hit me.”You... well, she asked! You thrust your fist forward!Pantea dodges.She promptly collapses to her knees, but... she dodged your attack. “Y-you can shut it off now, dad... ha... haa... haha...”Yamcha finally is able to reach the controls and he gets the gravity back to normal. All three of you are breathing heavily, and you... hoo boy you feel woozy. Pantea lays on her back, Yamcha leaning on the side of the Gravity Chamber’s controls.>A. ...I get it now. It’s more than just breaking my limits... it’s more than just power, it’s how to properly utilize it! I’ve been going at this all wrong until now!>B. Help her up and hug her!>C. Okay power down before you faint like Peppa almost did>D. Something else?
>>3005595>A. ...I get it now. It’s more than just breaking my limits... it’s more than just power, it’s how to properly utilize it! I’ve been going at this all wrong until now!>D. Something else?Sit down and meditate on ssj 3. Basically go through a full 'chakra filling' breathing routine. Ask the two to ki sense and tell you what they see.
>>3005595>A. ...I get it now. It’s more than just breaking my limits... it’s more than just power, it’s how to properly utilize it! I’ve been going at this all wrong until now!>B. Help her up and hug her!
>>3005609 I'd say B, but SSJ 3 hug would hurt
>>3005595>C. Okay power down before you faint like Peppa almost did
>>3005595>C, B, A.In that order.
>>3005595>C. Okay power down before you faint like Peppa almost did>B. Help her up and hug her!Don't kill the poor girl.>D. Thank her and lead into A.These kids have such good friends.
>>3005595>A. ...I get it now. It’s more than just breaking my limits... it’s more than just power, it’s how to properly utilize it!
>>3005610Modifying my suggestion to also be cautious of crushing.
>>3005642Don't worry, healing tank should cover it.
Just realized that this would be a very moist, likely icky hug.Now where's Izzy?
>>3005595https://youtu.be/Qz-OOweIo-QYou take a deep breath and calm yourself, then power down. Not going to repeat what Peppa did and try and keep in this form for too long. Still... you can’t help but start to laugh. “You’re a genius.”“Tell... tell me something I don’t know... haha...” she replies, panting. “A-and sorry dad, kinda... ruined your workout routine there.”Yamcha laughs as well. “Well, not every day get to help a Super Saiyan break their limits. Consider that even.”You walk over to Pantea and help her up, then give her a tight hug. Good thing you powered down, don’t wanna crush her. “Thank you... God, it’s all so clear now.”“Is it?” she asks with a sly grin, patting your head.“It is... I really get it now. I’ve been so focused on the power I was missing everything else... beyond power, it’s how to utilize it. It’s the skill in handling it.” You shake your head. “It’s... I’ve been going at this all wrong.”“Feel like what have what you need to improve?”You nod. “You’re the best.”“Ahem.” Yamcha coughs. “While I’m quite happy for you, Gohan...” He makes parting motions with his hands.Your face goes as red as your hair as you let go of Pantea, the girl letting out a slightly nervous laugh. “Sorry! Sorry! Just...”“Yeah yeah, caught up in the moment.” He ruffles your hair. “But really, congrats.”“...You’re both entering the Tournament too, right?” you ask Pantea and Yamcha.“Oh, sure. I might not be able to take the top spot, but I’m not giving up without a fight. Whoever does win has to earn it.” the man states, thrusting up his thumb.“Videl and I have a score to settle from the Junior Championship, she says. I aim to be there to meet her challenge.” Pantea states, rubbing her nose. She then winks. “Of course... if I am out, I know a few folks I’ll be rooting for.”>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST KAI #3... Paused.>Twitter account is @KatoQm, will have status updates there>Got some questions for the QM? Suggestions? Throw them at ask.fm/QMKato and I'll try to answer them as best I canAll right folks, that's all for tonight. We’ll be continuing tomorrow starting ~5:30 pm PST. I’ll be around for a bit for questions and such. Did y’all have fun with this switch over to Gohan? Woudl y’all prefer Izzy next, or go back to Peppa?
>>3005653Izzy it iz!
>>3005653Izzy sounds good, yeah.
>>3005653It was a very good change of pace after Peppa's Ninja Mystery Adventure, especially those rolls! Glad to see that the kids are alright. I wouldn't mind staying with Gohan for a while longer and see what else he can do to help out in that regard but...>>3005665>>3005668Izzy cute.
>>3005653This was a lot of fun! Pantea's a great friend. Nice to see Gohan get out of this little funk. I'd prefer a switch back to Peppa personally, but wouldn't be opposed to a switch over to Izzy first.
>>3005653Also, I gotta wonder, how would this go if we didn't mention catching up?
>>3005699Strip Mario Party.
>>3005716...I have to wonder now, is Gohan and Pantea's friendship strong enough to survive a maraton of all Mario Party games? Mario Kart?
>>3005653I'd like to see Izumi's side as well.
>>3005653Interesting to see Izumi's side.
For SSJ 3 since stamina and time is a factor. Then perfecting Raioken with SSJ 3 seems to be what we need to accomplish. As Raioken expends little stamina in its boost.Then using shine spark to hit the enemy with that boost of speed and power all at once. And I know this is beating a dead horse, but...wouldn't Roshi MAX form with SSJ 3 help allow Gohan to endure the form longer? Raioken should let him keep up speed wise, to manage the weight.
>>3007022MAX form is just taking you back to your prime fighting wise as you're circulating ki into all of it again.
>>3007022>>3007308Isn't MAX just basically the same as the Grade forms of Super Saiyan? Like what Trunks, Vegeta, Cell did.
Ok so reading some wikis about the transformations, and now I'm suddenly worried that we're going to piss off Vegeta so much that he actually hits Trunk's Super Saiyan Rage form.
>>3007897Betting he'll hit Super Saiyan 4 instead.
>>3008012He gets so angry that he sucks in all the blutz waves to transform.
>>3007897Super Saiyan Rage is a redundant transformation.
>>3005665>>3005668>>3005673>>3005679>>3006492>>3006662Izzy it is then! And glad to hear y'all are having fun!>>3005699Pantea would still be concerned that there's something wrong, but wouldn't push the issue further. Instead focus would switch over to working on Dragon Ball detection and any suspicious activity regarding that.>>3005738Anon some things are just a little too much for a couple people to handle.>>3007022>>3007308>>3007503MAX is the exact opposite of what either Gohan or Peppa would need. It's boosting power by bulking up, which puts more strain on the body and reduces speed. Even with the Raio-ken, it's not helping one manage stamina issues that causes the Ki drain in Super Saiyan 3. Using the Raio-ken and then going up to 3 could be better as a finishing move of sorts, though it would work best if you can transform into that form quickly.>>3007897It's not quite there yet.And with all that said, we're back!https://youtu.be/D_kEXv0dgMYOkay, like you’ve been practicing. You bring your right hand forward, energy flowing through your body. The palm of your hand feels a chill. Right as you feel the ice start to form, you bring your left hand forward, your left palm on the back of your right hand. Now! “HA!” A blast of supercooled water jets forward, bits of frost forming on the edges of the stream, until the blast finally meets its target: a large boulder. The water flows over it, freezing upon impact and covering the boulder in ice.The effect is immediate: the whole thing is covered in what could only be described as a small glacier. Success! You hear clapping behind you. “Well, your mom’s going to be happy you’re applying your studies.”“Sometimes it helps to just see it in person, dad.” Hmm... but what to call this one? Supercooling water and firing it forth. Going to need to go back to this. Need to have something catchy...Acer walks towards you, hands on his hips. “So what brought this one on? You seemed to be fairly satisfied with that Hydro Storm thing.”You shrug, wiping off some of the frost that built up on your right palm. Should probably watch out for that. “I mean, sure it was a bit of a challenge to combine Light and Water, but I figured that with how similar these two elements already are, it wouldn’t hurt to see how they combine.” You motion for your father to bring you your notebook, then start jotting down all you’ve figured so far. Hmm... could still do some testing with your magic. Or you could call it a day.>A. You still want to practice more with the Darker elements, and just why there’s a relation between it and the force of gravity>B. Dad, want to try another combo move?

Maybe Fro- ...bah, going to have to write these down too. “Hey, dad, curious, you ever look into the darker magics and see how they combine with Fire?”Acer shakes his head. “Nah, Lapis and Piccolo have been focusing on them more. Why do you ask?”“Wondering how they combine, I’ve been trying to study some of the effects they have, especially with how some seem to have something to do with gravitational forces. Was curious if Fire, or maybe Light, have any interesting interactions.” You stretch your arms and look up at the sky, a slight pink color in the distance as the sun starts to lower. “Hrmn. I should probably get Icarus some exercise, too, before it gets too late in the day.”“Probably a good idea. I’m going to go help your mother with dinner, be home soon.”“Sure thing, dad!” You then whistle for Icarus, waiting for a moment for the dragon to fly to you. You pet him on the head, sweetly telling him as he coos happily, “You’re getting pretty big, aren’t ya? Have you been sneaking any extra steaks from grandpa again?”Icarus shakes his head, stomping his feet. Okay, better get ‘em flying. You hop on his back, checking through your notebook as he flies. There are a few spells that are drawing your interest. One is a simpler one, the “Gravity Blow,” that apparently works by sort of... “condensing” darkness into a point that’s heavier than the surrounding area and launching it at a foe. Problem is that it’s a little slow once launched. Wonder if there’s a way to speed up the launch somehow. Next up is a far stronger spell that you were able to research. The book calls it “Dark Matter.” The explanation of how it works is... sketchy, at best, but somehow it seems like it actually does something to manipulate, if not the particles themselves, the effects of genuine dark matter. It’s an exceptionally risky spell, though, and needs to be controlled properly.Hmm... could Light be used in some way to either better utilize the effects? Either keeping them contained more or speeding them up so they hit quicker. Icarus grunts and interrupts your train of thought. “What is it boy?”The dragon looks down at a couple strange people. One looks like... a rather short and round man in PTO armor, with very short hair, while the other seems to be a shorter and rounder man in blue and red with a cape. Looks like they’re arguing over something. They DO seem just a little suspicious.>A. ...Wanna fly in closer, Icarus? Try and see if we can hear them?>B. Icarus, 10 laps around the village, I’m going to check this out>C. Nah, let them be, probably nothing>D. Something else?

>>3008777>A. ...Wanna fly in closer, Icarus? Try and see if we can hear them?Earth magic + Dark magic = Gravity?
>>3008777>A. ...Wanna fly in closer, Icarus? Try and see if we can hear them?>>3008797Darkness manipulates gravity straight out, apparently. Combining them would probably just make rocks hit harder.
>>3008777>A.I think I get what you're getting at with this, Kato.
>>3008614Actually... I'm going to go with Glacien. Easy to shout as an attack.
>>3008890A close second
>>3008777Okay, PTO soldier and weird... Superhero-looking guy. Definitely worth investigating. “...Icarus, wanna fly in a little closer? Let’s see if we can get close enough to hear what they’re saying.”The dragon nods, descending slowly. You can feel their Ki... and neither of them seem particularly strong. Still, very strange. Thankfully they seem to be too caught up in their argument to really notice you and Icarus start to approach. “...you incompetent oaf! You had one job, and you failed at it miserably!” the man in PTO armor yells.“Hey, YOU try explaining to those air pirates this whole mess then!” the other man, now clearly with some symbol on his chest... “Su” it says, apparently, protests. “Every blockheaded cyborg wannabe in there kept upping the price!”“AND YOU LET THEM!” the PTO soldier yells. “How will you be able to get that Dragon Ball now, huh?”...Dragon Ball.WELP.You motion for Icarus to try and hide among the trees. The... PTO soldier has an odd Ki signature. It feels almost familiar. Still, you keep listening. “They said another group is offering a hefty, hefty sum! I can’t just rob a bank and expect to fork over the money for it, have you SEEN the kind of police officers they’ve got out there these days?! Those maniacs in Penguin Village don’t even come close now!”“RRRRGGGGHHH... fine. Arrange another meeting. I think I can get you some extra muscle.”>A. Hey hello hi why are you talking about Dragon Balls, boys?>B. ...Did he say Penguin Village? Maybe you should follow this guy>C. Keep listening in, they have no idea you’re there>D. Something else?
>>3008945>B.>C. Keep listening in, they have no idea you’re there>D. Something else?Pretend to be that muscle for Sourman after the pto officer leaves.
>>3008877>>3008890These ones work too.>>3008945>C.Poor, down on his luck Suppaman.Also I think I know who the PTO guy is.
>>3008945>>B. ...Did he say Penguin Village? Maybe you should follow this guy>>C. Keep listening in, they have no idea you’re there
>>3008945>B. ...Did he say Penguin Village? Maybe you should follow this guy>C. Keep listening in, they have no idea you’re there
Does Izumi have the demon slayer sword?
>>3008945You keep silent, Icarus tilting his head and cooing lowly as you both listen more. If this guy’s been to Penguin Village, who knows what kind of trouble he’s up to. “What kind of muscle? You know you gotta be careful in these parts. The dreaded Ox Princess and her terrifrying husband live in this area!”...You don’t quite know if that’s an insult to your parents, but you DO have to force yourself not to giggle. “Terrifrying,” dad’s going to love that one. And “dreaded” Ox Princess? Really? Well, mom can be kinda scary when she’s mad... “Bah! Bah I say! They don’t have to know. I know just the kind of muscle you need. I’ve got a crew of truly frightful pirates at my command, as well as my trump card...” the PTO soldier chuckles to himself. “Those fools have no hope of ever matching the might of a Super Saiyan!”...Super Saiyan. Sssssuper Saiyan. Who, th- “Super what now?”“Only the mightiest of the greatest warrior race in the universe!” The PTO soldier flexes his muscles. “Hahaha! They will tremble in fear before the might of Lord Onio’s Legion!”You and Icarus look at one another. Is this guy for real? Well, it seems to convince the costumed little guy, and the two shake on it. The... “Super Saiyan” pulls out a remote, while the other man brings out... a skateboard.>A. ...Materialize a pair of Skateboards for both yourself and Icarus, follow that guy>B. Follow this... “Super Saiyan” and see what he’s really up to>C. Jump down and yell for them to freeze! Literally! (Blast ‘em with ice!)>D. Yoooou should tell mom and dad>E. Something else?>>3009020She does not, at the moment at least.
>>3009032>C. Jump down and yell for them to freeze! Literally! (Blast ‘em with ice!)
>>3009032>B.>E. Icarus, fetch sword.
>>3008877Glay-see-in? Or Glay-shun?
>>3009032>her terrifrying husbandMy sides.>B.
>>3009032>C. Jump down and yell for them to freeze! Literally! (Blast ‘em with ice!)>>3009054The former, so it sounds more like glacier.
>>3009032>>3009032>A. ...Materialize a pair of Skateboards for both yourself and Icarus, follow that guy>Now Maple's techniques will come in handy!>So here I am>Following a Suppaman
speaking of dark magic movies.The manwha, Rebirth (its Berserk but with vampires!) has a combat move that - dangerous - could be what Izumi could use to gain an edge against her Saiyan blooded cousins.
>>3009089 It also explores trying to use light and dark magic in tandem as a plot point to defeat the big bad. Not- Griffith
>>3009093If it's potentially fatal she can always use the Tribeam.
>>3009089>>3009093Is it weak to iDOLM@STER and boats?

>>3009032https://youtu.be/nP1fmBb7_PUOooh it’d be so tempting to chase after that guy on a skateboard of your own... buuuuut you should probably play this safe. You close your eyes, leap down with a playful smile on your face, catching their attention. “Well hello there.”“...This one of ‘Lord Onio’s Legion’?” the costumed man asks.The PTO soldier takes a fighting stance. “It’s a snooping kid. Get her, Suppaman!”“How about, instead, you guys... Freeze!” You try out your new technique on “Suppaman,” freezing him in his tracks. You’re about to do the same to Onio... but he’s already running, abandoning the other man. He’s... not exactly running very quickly. You follow along after ordering Icarus to pick up the personsicle and follow you. The soldier reaches... aha, a space pod, of course.“Damn this planet... okay, gotta regroup and-”“Nah.” you state, then let out another blast, freezing Onio up to his legs.“W-what trickery is this?!” he turns his head back to you. “You... you have a death wish, kid?! ...Dare you challenge the might of a SUPER SAIYAN?!”>A. You’re no Super Saiyan>B. You mean, like Mr. Vegeta?>C. Eh, Freeze ‘em and be on your way back home>D. You know... that could be some good practice. Okay, transform Mr. Super Saiyan!>E.

>>3009186https://youtu.be/9vZD06f767gWell, if this guy’s so eager to prove himself... eh, you could use some practice. You put your hands on your hips. “There’s no risen legend here. You’re just an average Saiyan warrior at best. Prove me wrong, because ‘Super’ Saiyans are a bit of a specialty of mine.” Okay, maybe that’s a bit of a bluff. But you can take ‘em.Onio grunts angrily. “You.... you’ll regret that, you little bitch! Aaaaahhhh...HHHHRRRAAAAAAAAHHHH!” Power builds up around him, his Ki starts to... spike rapidly. Oh. Oh he wasn’t joking about this. “EARTHLING! WITNESS... THE LEGEND! HHHAAAAAAAH!” Onio’s hair goes blonde as a golden aura flares around him. Welp. Crap. The ice around his feet breaks away. Onio chuckles menacingly. “Scared now, little girl?”Well... his Ki’s actually risen substantially, but he’s only, at best, around your level. Pretty weak for a Super Saiyan, really. You shrug. “Why should I be? I’ve seen way worse.”Onio’s eye twitches. “...I’m going to make you cry for that.” He holds up his hand and fires forth an energy blast a bit quicker than you were expecting, knocking you back. “HAHAHA! TREMBLE, BEFORE MY MIGHT!”Well. That wasn’t the smartest move to start off with. You notice Icarus over you, the dragon licking your face to check if you’re okay. Ick! Dragon germs! “Agh! Down boy! I’m fine, I’m fine!”The “Super Saiyan’s” shoulders slump. “Y-you are?”You hop to your feet, then crack your knuckles. “Bit of a cheap shot. Try that again. I dare you.”Onio yells and blasts at you, this time you manage to deflect it with your right arm while snapping your fingers with your left, setting off a blast of fire around him. Onio yelps in pain, and you next leap forward and charge a Ki blast in your hand, adding Lightning to it to give it some extra oomph! You score a direct hit, stunning the Super Saiyan, next following it up with a spin-kick boosted with Wind to knock him to the ground. Hah, gotta thank mom for showing you that one.Onio finally stumbles up to his feet, his mind switching back and forth between fuming and horrified that you’re able to match him. You fire your new technique downward, Onio trying to dodge, only to get his legs caught by the ice, stopping him in place again. Even so, you can feel Onio start to charge up a Ki blast of some sort...>A. Nothing fancy, just knock ‘em out, quick!>B. Use the Gravity Blow to stop his attack, then duck under him and strike!>C. Mix it on the fly, try combining Light and Darkness for a finishing blow!>D. Hit ‘em with a classic! Kamehameha!>E. You know, you’re nothing compared to the Super Saiyans I know. My cousins, Uncle Goku, Uncle Raditz, Mr. Nappa, Mr. Vegeta...>F. Something else?
>>3009363>B.>C.Tactical and fancy finish.Give it a cool name too. Like... Chaos Cannon. Or Graviton Cannon.
>>3009363>F. Throw him up into the air, detonate the ice at his feet. "Dirty Cryoworks."
>>3009389Or maybe Dirty Snowflakes.
>>3009363>B. Use the Gravity Blow to stop his attack, then duck under him and strike!>C. Mix it on the fly, try combining Light and Darkness for a finishing blow!
>>3009377Not that I'm voting for it, but how about Black-White Cannon Soldier - Envoy of the Cannon?
So, with a bunch of 13 year olds, how Chuuni should our attack names be?

>>3009486Apologies, that was rude. Meant to say "chaps."
>>3009363https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_1Ro3FYwPLkOnly got one shot with this, so better make it count! You bring your hands together, a shadowy mass forming between them. Onio finally finishes charging his attack. “YOU’RE DONE FOR NOW, GIRL! YOU WON’T MAKE A FOOL OF ME AGAIN!” He thrusts his hands forward. “MAXIMUM ONIO BLASTER!”Now! “Gravity Blow!” You cast the spell right as Onio blasts his beam forward... and it hits, and blocks it! Perfect! It’s holding! Not a moment to lose now! You dash down and build up magic, Darkness and Light in each hand, and then bring them together, forming a sphere of chaotic, swirling black and white energies. You land a few meters away from Onio, giving him just enough time to realize... he messed up. “HHHAAAAA!” You launch the sphere forward, with it blasting into Onio and sending the Saiyan flying. He finally lands some distance away, power dropping.You... you did it! You beat a Super Saiyan! Icarus comes to you and rubs his head against your arm. The two of you fly over to where Onio landed. And then... you hear a groan. “Oohhhh... h-how...” You smirk. “Told ya. Specialty.”“Y-you’ll... pay... for this...” He tries to stand, his hair back to normal... and then falls over. Down for the count.“Well, not much of a Super Saiyan now, are ya?” You pat your dragon’s head. “Come on, Icarus, let’s get this guy back to mom and dad, they’ll know what to do.”Hauling the Saiyan and the frozen costumed criminal onto Icarus’ back, you look down at your hands and smile again. That was... an exceptionally powerful spell. And more than that, you got it to work, first try! Ah, dad’s going to be so proud! ...But what to call it? Chaos Cannon? Ragna Buster? Eh, you’ll think of something!>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST KAI #3... Paused.>Twitter account is @KatoQm, will have status updates there>Got some questions for the QM? Suggestions? Throw them at ask.fm/QMKato and I'll try to answer them as best I canAll right folks, that's all for tonight. We’ll be continuing tomorrow starting ~5:30 pm PST. I’ll be around for a bit for questions and such. Did y’all have fun?
>>3009649>“Told ya. Specialty.”https://youtu.be/B8i8SqNQ36E
>>3009649Great times were had Kato, nice to see little Izzy kicking some ass even if I'm now wondering if she's going to end up less Warrior Princess and more "lady Magus"Also definitely ready for some more Peppa.
>>3009649Good stuff. I hope we can get some details about the Dragon Balls. And those Air Pirates, that could be fun! Are we still on track to start the tournament soon?
>>3009662Hah.>>3009678>>3009682Glad to hear! If everything goes according to plan, Tournament will be starting by the end of Tuesday, or at the start of next thread.
>>3009685I dunno what's Hah about it, you quoted Obi Wan and then left me hanging by spelling my write-in different.
>>3009685Sweet.Also Ragna Buster is a cool name, we should call that spell that.
So ideas for Izumi.Combining light and dark magic through the demon slayer sword could be neat.Also. The fake prophet, he shouted some Harry Potter words buuut - you know what spell would be super useful?Accio. The ability to teleport stuff remote from us too us. Imagine how easy Dragon Balls would be to get out of the hands of some nasty folks or other mcguffins that need to be nabbed.I'd imagine it involves pulling stuff through the teleportation zone we use for instant transmission with telekinesis or something on that level.
>>3010642I say we just make portkeys to use like the Advent Children Omnislash.

Keep Hell and Heaven in mind for something.>>3010642>>3010660High level magics are capable of something like that. Towa knows such a type of magic.>>3002850“Something to block out a large blast of light, huh?” Bulma asks aloud, twirling a pen.“Just enough to reactively shield my eyes. These ninja keep spamming the Solar Flare technique, and while closing your eyes CAN work to a point, they still have plenty of tricks up their sleeves.” you explain to the purple-haired woman as Giru makes a cup of coffee for Cocoa. “Sure, trying to come up with some sort of magic spell or something could also work for it, but this is a bit more cost-effective.”She taps the pen against her chin. “Hmm... I can probably whip something up in a few days, pair of goggles or something.”“What if someone helps, like me, or Pantea or...” Wait a second. You can sense her close by, but... not in her usual position. “What is Pantea doing, anyway?”“Seems she and Gohan got up to something.” Bulma replies with a shrug. “Saw them rush past here a little while ago, think they’re training with Yamcha.”That’s... different. “...Really? Thought they were playing more of that game today.”“Well it-” Bulma’s reply is cut off as the whole building starts to shake. She pouts. “...I’m upping the inertial dampeners next time I work on that thiiiiIIIIII-!”The shaking intensifies, Cocoa trying to brace herself. Her eyes widen, a jolt of fear traveling down her spine. “P-Peppa what is that?!”You... you can sense it. A massive buildup of Ki. But this... it feels almost like......No way.You can feel it! Gohan, is he... is he about to do it? HE’S DOING IT!“DANGER, DANGER, EXTREMELY HIGH ENERGY SIGNATURE DETECTED! DANGER! DANGER!” Giru blurts out, running around for a bit before falling over and flailing.Cocoa holds on to you, Bulma bracing herself, but you stand firm, smiling wide. Finally, it dies down... but you can still sense it. That raw power. He did it! HE DID IT! Bulma sighs and stands up straight, remarking, “Definitely upping the inertial dampeners.”Cocoa looks over in Gohan’s direction, shaking, hand still gripping tight on your shirt. “What... what was that?”“My brother just broke through his limits.” you reply, a wide grin on your face. You feel him power down, Cocoa breathing out a sigh of relief.>A. Time to congratulate your brother!>B. Let him be for a bit, he deserves a little time to enjoy that>C. ...You can let go now Cocoa. He won’t bite, promise>D. So about those goggles!>E. Say, Bulma, since we’re here, you think you know of a material that won’t snap after I transform like that? I like having the ponytail>F. Something else?
>>3011420>B, C, D, E.
>>3011420>B. Let him be for a bit, he deserves a little time to enjoy that>E. Say, Bulma, since we’re here, you think you know of a material that won’t snap after I transform like that? I like having the ponytail
>>3011420Supporting >>3011436Will we get to pick what kind of goggles we can have?
>>3011420>B. Let him be for a bit, he deserves a little time to enjoy that>>C. ...You can let go now Cocoa. He won’t bite, promise>>D. So about those goggles!
>>3011420Heh, probably best to let him have his moment. Probably doesn’t even realize you’re here yet. You notice that Cocoa’s still holding on to your shirt. “...You can let go now, Cocoa. He won’t bite, promise.”She pouts and blushes slightly, letting go. “Hey, I just learned how to do this stuff, forgive me for being a little uneasy when sensing something like... that.”Bulma chuckles softly. “Well, hopefully the Gravity Chamber is still intact. Should be capable of withstanding that kind of punishment.”“It IS a lot of power, but Gohan’s got a smart head on his shoulders. Even with a ton of hair added to it this time.” ...Wait. Wait right! With a snap of your fingers, you add, “Oh, since it’s on my mind, Bulma, do you know of any materials that might like, be able to withstand transforming like that?”She raises an eyebrow. “...Possibly. Some of the elastics on PTO armor have proven fairly durable. Why do you ask?”You poke your fingers together, bashfully admitting, “I kinda like having the ponytail, even if it does mean my hair ends up half the size of me.”Both Bulma and Cocoa laugh. “You really are your mother’s child. All right, I can probably find something, especially with Gohan giving me a benchmark to work from.”“Thank you!~” Haha, sweet! “So... er, about those goggles, too...”“Give me a few days and I’ll have it ready. However...” Bulma walks over to her computer, typing away for a few moments, then motions for you to come closer. “Should probably pick a style you like.”That was... surprisingly quick. Has she been planning for something like this? Ah well, those are a few neat styles. Which one do you like the most...>A. Digger’s Goggles>B. Ace’s Goggles>C. Skater’s Goggles>D. Builder’s Goggles>E. Uhhh... Cocoa, which one you think is the coolest?>F. Bulma, which one do you like the most?>G. Something else?
>>3011526>A.A! A! A! A!
>>3011526>BGot to love the classic>>3011420>keep hell and heaven in mindHYPE
>>3011526>A. Digger’s Goggles
>>3011526>G. Ooh, these ones are my spirit animal's!
>>3011563Oh, so that's what the last ones areStill voting A.
>>3011575Why do you keep spamming other options?
>>3011589I like doing it, duh.
>>3011526Ooooh that second option is tempting, they’re a classic, a leader’s goggles, though now that you think about it, there’s a really cool style from that show Videl and Lime like... but you have to admit. The first set is what’s calling you the hardest. “I think I’ll go with these. They look cool, and seem to be fairly snug when worn.”Cocoa seems like she wanted either the second or third ones, but she admits, “That pair does look kinda cool, I guess.”“All righty then. I’ll get to work on that some time soon.” Bulma pats your head. “Consider it my thanks for bringing over that Scouter.”“What IS with that Scouter anyway? Is it one of the ones mom made, or is it like, from the PTO, or... what?”Bulma leans back in her chair. “From a glance, it seems SIMILAR to one of the ones Maple made... but it’s been modified.” She gets you to look closely at the Scouter. “See these marks here? It’s been pried open at least five times. If I had to guess, this thing’s not on any known private networks.” She places it down, crossing her arms and tapping her heel against the ground. “It doesn’t have any explosives inside it, at least, but prying it open and trying to see what’s inside could risk compromising it. I do have to wonder if it has the Dragon Ball detector still active...”“That WOULD explain a lot.” you comment.Giru walks across the counter, looking at it curiously.>A. ...Do not eat the Scouter, please>B. Wait... maybe Giru can analyze it! He replicate that cappuccino machine, right?>C. Did you want a pair too, Cocoa?>D. Something else?
>>3011667>D. Feed it to Giru.
>>3011667>D.Ask Bulma if it's a good idea to let Giru take a look at it, then>B.Via >>3011672Also>C.
>>3011667Coco has good taste.>AHe's totally going to eat it.>CYou can only get away with the goggle look for so long. Cocoa helped out big time on set, so it's nice to offer, if Bulma is okay with it, of course.
>>3011667You look to Cocoa, then ask, a little teasingly,“You want a pair too don’t you?~”She bashfully lowers her head. “I-I don’t want to be a bother, I didn’t exactly do anything for it...”“You distracted that ninja long enough for me to this thing, come on, don’t act like you weren’t helping out.” you state, sticking your tongue out at her.Bulma laughs. “All right, all right, I can probably have Pantea make you a pair.”Cocoa rubs the back of her neck. “I-if you’re sure...”“You earned it.” you nudge her arm with your elbow, then notice the little robot stepping closer. You gently push Giru away from the Scouter. You know this guy. He’ll eat it if you’re not careful... wait. Waaaaait a second. “Crrrrazy thought. Maybe Giru could analyze it somehow. He did copy and replicate that cappuccino machine, right?”Bulma opens her mouth and raises a finger, but stops herself from saying anything, her finger curling back as she starts to ponder the idea. “I mean... it wouldn’t be outside the realm of possibility. But... it might not be the best idea to just let him have it without making sure there’s nothing suspicious about it. We’ve already got enough mysteries surrounding him, don’t want to make things get any more complicated before we know what we’re doing.”Well, she’s got a point. He could end up giving new insight into the whole ninja plot, but... he could also pose a risk, especially considering whoever ended up putting him here on Earth.>A. Still think we should give it a try>B. Hey, you know more about this than I do, Bulma, your decision>C. Think you sense Gohan coming by, he’s probably had enough time to let all that sink in>D. Something else?
>>3011793>B. Hey, you know more about this than I do, Bulma, your decision>Though, if we do, we should feed him a regular scouter as a control so he can analyze what's different.
>>3011793>he could also pose a risk, especially considering whoever ended up putting him here on Earth.You're one smart cookie, Peppa.>D. Reconsider feeding a lead to the weirdo assimilator>BNot that the scouter's essential, we've got some good details on the ninjas. But considering the weird power that disappeared when Giru arrived, and the recovered recording, giving it access to what may be black box technology might be a mistake.But if there's a good reason, I could be on board.
>>3011793>B. Hey, you know more about this than I do, Bulma, your decisionTry asking Giru if he can look for certain things when he eats something, and maybe choose not to become a dragon radar. I have no idea if he's capable of any self control but it's worth a shot.
>>3011793Oy wait here's an idea: partially disable the scouter. Remove the parts that actually do detecting, and only feed it the networking.
>>3011847Wouldn't that require opening the scouter first? At that point it would either blow up or we find out it isn't booby-trapped, rendering Giru unnecessary.
>>3011857I was thinking we could poke out the external bit that was the physical sensor, but I of course have no idea on the specific bits of fictional magitech.
>>3011861Alternatively we could blast it with the energies it's designed to read and hope to burn out that part, but Giru might fix it anyway.In any case, can't hurt to float the idea, Bulma will know what should work.
>>3011857>>3011861Maybe give him a dummy Scouter first, and see how he reacts to it, then a regular Scouter
>>3011861>I of course have no idea on the specific bits of fictional magitech.Truth. And this is (like) one of Maple's scouters too. That it's been pried open implies mods, but maybe that's how they power it on because the push start is the booby trapped part? It has been opened at least five times, and they have four? five? balls.>>3011870Would that make a difference? The issue is we don't know about the modifications inside that could cause something bad to happen.
>>3011793You raise your hands. “You know way more about this than I do, Bulma, it’s totally up to you. Just want us to consider our options, is all.”She nods. “It’s not a bad idea, but there are things we need to consider first before we go with it.”“Plus... well, we still don’t know much about the people who brought him here. Maybe feed him a regular Scouter first, or even a dummy Scouter, and see how that goes.” You pick up the little robot. “Giru, how exactly do you replicate the things you eat?”“Careful breakdown of and incorporation of any devices! Giru, Giru.” he replies.Hmm... okay, checks out. “Can you like... choose not to incorporate certain bits?”He beeps for a few moments. “Giru, Giru! Assimilation of new technology protocol requires complete analysis! No half-measures!”“...Probably not the best terminology to use. Not sure I like hearing robots talk about ‘assimilation.’” Cocoa comments.“Either way, I’ll figure something out.” Bulma tells you, standing up. “Thanks for your help, Peppa.”You put Giru down and smile cheekily. “No problem! The sooner we get to the bottom of this mystery, the better.” Just then, you notice Pantea, Gohan, and Yamcha walk by, your brother walking with a confident stride, a smile on his face... and he seems completely oblivious to you. Heh. Hope that didn’t go to his head.Pantea on the other hand catches a glimpse, then stops and waves. “Oh, Peppa, Cocoa! Hey, when’d you guys get here?”“Short while ago. We’ve got a lead on the ninja nonsense.” you tell her, Gohan poking his head into the lab. You grin at him. “Seems you three were busy.”“You could say that.” your brother comments, smiling back.>A. Congrats, bro, knew you could do it>B. Hey, we’ve got four people. Who’s up for some Smash~?>C. You know, it’s getting a little late, we should probably think about heading home>D. Something else?
>>3011902>A. Congrats, bro, knew you could do it>Ask for details on how they did it.
>>3011902>D. Innocently suggest Webflix and Chill because every meme's a joke you're not in on
>>3011895Just think it could be useful giving him a benchmark on what modifications were made, if it does get eaten.>>3011902>A & B.Quick, who is Peppa's Smash Bros. main? Sheik? Ness? Ike? ...Jill from Drill Dozer?
>>3011925Jill and Metaknight then.
>>3011930Peppa only plays the most OP-tier characters and is very well-liked among her piers, is Jill OP?
>>3011943Jill has pierced the heavens with her drill.
>>3011902>A. Congrats, bro, knew you could do it>>B. Hey, we’ve got four people. Who’s up for some Smash~?
Hey, how about a new look for the Turtle School uniform?
>>3011902“Congrats, bro. Knew you could do it.” you tell him kindly, placing your hands behind your back. “What finally got you over the barrier?”“Eheh, well...” He rubs the back of his neck, Pantea ruffling his hair. “I just needed the right motivation, I think.”Cocoa squints at your brother. “Heck of a lot of motivation, then.”“Besides, I’ve learned a more important lesson than that. Trying to just get stronger was what was really holding me back. I should start fighting smarter, too”“Mom and dad are gonna be happy to hear that.” You stretch your arms, and then realize. “Heeeey. Hey, we’ve got four people, don’t we? Who’s up for some Smash?~”“Meta Knight is banned.” Gohan and Pantea declare simultaneously, a pair of judging glares locked right on you.You hold your hands up innocently. “Oh come on, I wouldn’t do that to you guyyys, not after you’re all happy and everything.”Cocoa giggles. “I guess a couple matches wouldn’t be too bad.”Yeah. Couple matches.Heh.Heh heh.Hahahahahahaha~https://youtu.be/Hg7jE3i77Qc“HYYAAA!” the pink-haired girl on the screen yells out as her little mech plows right through the elf swordsman in red.“PIII-KA!” the yellow rat with blue goggles squeaks, blasting the bounty hunter in power armor with a bolt of lightning from the sky.“No no no no GAH COME ON!” Pantea grunts out, trying to grab on to the ledge with the Grapple Beam.“Gotcha!” you yell out, smashing down with the mech’s little drill arms, knocking Pantea’s character into the pit. “Cocoa, Gohan’s almost back on!”“I’ve got ‘em!” She attacks upward with the rat, knocking Gohan into the air as he almost lands, then finishing him with her favorite little combo, sending ‘em flying into the air.“UWWAAAAAAaaaa...!”“GAME!”https://youtu.be/7_g09xTkpHw“THIS GAME’S WINNER IS... BLUE TEAM!”The rat and girl do a little victory dance together, and you and Cocoa high-five. “Awesome!”“Great job, Peppa!”Gohan and Pantea grumble together, but the two of them nod. “Well, that’s best of five. How’d you get so good with Jill?”“What can I say? Spinning’s a good trick.” You give him the cheekiest, dorkiest grin.“All right, guess that’s enough of us kicking your butts.” Cocoa adds in, standing. “Really should be getting home.”>A. I’ll get you home, least I can do after dragging you around all evening>B. Gohan, we should be getting home too, dad’s gonna have so many questions>C. Come on, one more match! Pleeeease?~>D. Something else?
>>3012003You're the best, Kato.>A.
>>3012003>A. I’ll get you home, least I can do after dragging you around all evening>B. Gohan, we should be getting home too, dad’s gonna have so many questions
>>3012003>A. I’ll get you home, least I can do after dragging you around all evening>Hey, you think it's weird how when it's nearing sunset in West City, it's also nearing sunset near Orange City? It's like there's only one hemisphere on the whole planet with any land on it, and the amount of land is small!
>>3012064Going by this map, if the world was divided into four sections of width and round, then West City and Orange City would be directly opposite to each other, you could dig from one to the other.
>>3012003You stand up too. “I’ll get you home. Least I can do for dragging you around all day.”“Hey, I’ve found worse ways to spend an afternoon.” she replies playfully.“I’ll teleport us home after this, Gohan. Dad’s going to have so many questions.”He laughs. “Oh I bet.”“All right, be right back!”You place your hand on Cocoa’s shoulder, then lock on to her mother’s Ki, and finally teleport to her. “Hi Mrs. Amaguri, we’re back.”“Oh, already? I didn’t even hear you come in.” she replies with surprise. “Well, did you have fun, dear?”Cocoa nods. “And kept out of trouble, promise.”She chuckles. “All right. Thank you for watching over her, Peppa.”“Ah, what’re friends for? It was no big, really!” You place your hands behind your head and smile. You briefly glance out the window. Man, sundown already. Time flies. Going to be pretty late when you DO get home. Huh, actually, considering the size of the Earth-“Sadly she can’t say, she’s just dropping me off.” Cocoa tells her mother.“All right, here, let me get you something for your trip.” the woman tells you sweetly, walking into the kitchen.Cocoa looks over at you. “...I gotta admit, it was a lot of fun. Glad I was able to help you with this whole ninja thing. And... thanks for not using me as bait.”“I promised I wouldn’t. And those acting lessons really did come in handy. Though man, throat still feels weird from trying that accent.” Maybe you could ask for a glass of water before you go.“Well, you’re a quick learner, I have to admit.”You stick out your tongue. “Or maybe you’re just a good teacher.”“Cute.” she chuckles. “Well... you know, if you ever do need help with something like this again, you know where to find me.”“Sure thing.”Cocoa gives you a hug. “Take care, Peppa.”“Same to you. ‘Till next time.” You hug her back.“Peppa, catch!” the girl’s mother calls to you, tossing you little paper bag. “One for you and your brother. You have a safe trip back.”Oh hey, macarons! “Thanks! I promise I won’t eat them both on the way, no matter how good they are!”The three of you laugh, and you finally step out of their house. Well, that was a fun little adventure with your friend. You look back, smiling for... just one more moment. Huh. Not sensing something, just... eh, it’s nothing. Nothing.You should get back home, mom and dad are going to want to hear all about today!>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST KAI #3... Paused.>Twitter account is @KatoQm, will have status updates there>Got some questions for the QM? Suggestions? Throw them at ask.fm/QMKato and I'll try to answer them as best I canAll right folks, that's all for tonight. We’ll be continuing tomorrow starting ~5:30 pm PST. I’ll be around for a bit for questions and such. Did y’all have fun?
>>3012112Yeah, I like these MCs, gonna be really sad when the Battle Royale Saga happens.Hey, have you watched this video? https://youtu.be/lMPBH9FVbVQ
>>3012112Good times, yep. Downright comfy.
>>3012112Had a lot of fun! Peppa, Gohan, and Izzy all were. Pantea and Cocoa are great friends. What's Lime up to? Also any other interesting Smash Bros bits for this timeline you want to give?
>>3012126>Pantea and Cocoa are great friends.
>>3012150Icarus is a good boy who gets extra snacks for his help.
>>3012112>Nothing.I realize this is probably a cute way of describing FEELINGS but these negative space ninjas have me on edge.Good fun, glad to see that things aren't always fighting autism in the Son-Mahogany household. Hopefully there will be more opportunities to spend with "normal" friends in the future.I'd ask questions about Giru, but I really want to enjoy the suspense! Even if it just ends up being manufactured in the end.
>>3012165>I'd ask questions about Giru, but I really want to enjoy the suspense! Even if it just ends up being manufactured in the end.BEEP.
>>3012165...Worrying thought. The ninja might target them if we end up being too much for them to handle on their own. Wouldn't even need to attack them, the old "dagger planted at the bedside" trick would be a pretty clear threat.
>>3012174Ha, Maple already got in-home security after Towa caught her plucking her nosehairs.
>>3012168Oh. Gosh. I dropped GT pretty early on, so that doesn't mean too much to me, but it looks bad...>>3012174Yeah. All we can really do is have Cocoa keep practicing. She's been pretty good so far, and she was introduced to the ninjas early enough that she might have a knack for picking them out, rather than overlooking them.Speaking of, what was Cocoa thinking when she felt Gohan's power explode?
>>3012112Will we be able to master SS3 by making our tail all gold and spiky?
>>3012200Sounds stupid, but there may be something to it. Here's Goku with like, I dunno, 60 years of combat experience?
>>3012205And here's what Newbie SS3s' tails are like.
>>3012183Maybe the next lesson should be telepathy?Not to read minds, but so if our normy friends get caught, they can mentally summon back up.
>>3012200>>3012205>>3012207Only one problem with your idea: it isn't consistent. Sometimes his tail is gold, sometimes its brown.
>>3012456He just got his tail back there, hasn't even gone SS4.
>>3012456Wait, forgetting the sequence of things, he went SS4 before Baby went Golden Ape. I don't think he went SS3 anytime after that.
>>3012685>>3012698I am a-okay with it appearing gold after one reaches SSJ 4....Now would the tail turn red, blue, or white upon God, Blue and Ultra Instinct is the question.Does Black get a pink tail?
>>3012820Yeah, but does the Gold tail mean one is using Super Saiyan correctly by circulating ki through it?
>>3012685>>3012698>>3012820>>3012935Goku only has a gold tail in SS3 before fighting Baby as a SS4, but every time after that the tail is brown. It's inconsistent. Heroes always has him and every other Saiyan with brown tails. Shallot from Legends is the only recent exception, but his tail is black, like his hair.
>>3013096Eh, sometimes they have Goku with a torn shirt, doesn't mean his shirt's always going to be torn.
>>3013100Heroes is consistent with itself, at least. Also in GT SS4 somehow makes you grow a new shirt when you transform back from it, even if you lost it before transforming. Also it changes fingerless gloves to normal gloves, but changes them back when transforming back. SS4 is just kinda dumb in GT.
>>3013124Luckily tuffle quest just explains that as low-level CLOTHES BEAM Same reason why the fusion dance characters have their metamoran outfit.
>>3013135But why doesn't Goku go SS4 when Oceanus Shelton destroys his clothes? He has to get a new set from Pan so he doesn't spend the rest of the fight naked.For that matter, what was Pan doing having a spare set of clothes for Goku in the first place? Did Chichi give her some, just in case?
>>3013144*Oceanus ShenronTyped too fast. Stupid muscle memory.
>>3013144Goku doesn't care about his nudity?Anon, I could pick out the plot holes of Dragon Ball all night.I literally have done that before.Was fun.
>>3013153Point, but it's still pretty dumb in my opinion.>>3013154It would be funny if Goku didn't keep drawing attention to the fact that he's a grown man. He might act like a manchild, but he's still got an adult mind, he knows better. Its just kinda weird.
>>3013168Goku used to not mind as a child, but as an adult he cares. It's like that story with the apple.
>>3013171He's an adult in GT, that's the problem.
>>3013153>>3013168...our Goku knows better, right?
>>3013184Maple is good enough with the Clothes Beam to keep him from running around naked.
>>3013244Good enough... but moral enuff?
>>3012117>>3012122>>3012126Glad to hear!>Hey, have you watched this video?I have.>What's Lime up to?School, helping her grandpa run his store, economics studies.>Also any other interesting Smash Bros bits for this timeline you want to give?Jill, Starfy, Isaac, and Little Mac are fully playable characters in Brawl, in addition to Geno. James Bond, Joanna Dark, Marina Liteyears, and Masaki Andoh replace them as assist trophies.>>3012165>>3012168>>3012174>>3012180>>3012183Keep those ideas in mind for later.>Speaking of, what was Cocoa thinking when she felt Gohan's power explode?Imagine you have a friend teaching you how to fish. You've given it a try, and even managed to catch a little one on your own. Less than an hour later, you see your friend's brother somehow haul in a ship-sized giant squid. That's about how she was feeling.>>3012200>>3012205>>3012207Honestly I don't really have much of a preference on gold tails or not. I use what art's available. Not much evidence to really say there's anything different about colored tails or not, as like >>3013096 says, Heroes has all tails brown, while Shallot has a gold tail in Legends.>>3012820>Does Black get a pink tail?Goku Black (Super Saiyan 4 Rose Goku Black), or in other words, pic related.>>3013144Better question: why does Goku do literally nothing different the second time he goes at her, and ends up with once again trapped in her attack? Really, don't get me started on GT.>>3013184Goku does know it's impolite to walk around and fight people while naked.Okay, sorry about the delay! Wanted to make sure I answered your questions. We're back!
>>3012112You toss the orange sphere in your hand a couple times, then raise it up to the sun. Sure LOOKS like the real thing. Man, Trip and Piccolo put a lot of effort into this. Tien approaches you, his face stern. “Do you really think this will work?”“You’ll be able to keep it safe, you know what to prepare for. If they really are stealing your school’s secrets, you’ll be the hardest to take it from.” you speak, but then add telepathically, ‘Radar check confirmed, it’s indistinguishable unless brought with all the others.’‘Then the bait is set.’ Tien replies telepathically, bowing his head. “I’ll watch over it. Thank you, Peppa.”Your dad leans against one of the pillars, relaxed as he looks over Tien’s students curiously as they practice. “Heh, you know, I have to say, you’ve really done well with training them all.”“Seeing them progress does fill me with a lot of pride. They all have time and time again broken through the limits they set for themselves.” Tien seems... happy, but there’s a tint of unease in how he speaks. Guess you can’t really blame him, though. “How about you, Son Goku? Have you considered taking on any more students.”“To be honest, Maple’s way better at teaching people than I am.” your dad admits. “And, well...” he pats both you and your brother on the head, his face almost beaming with pride. “I try my best with these two right here.”“Daaaad!” you try to push his hand away, laughing.“You’re better than you give yourself credit for, dad.” Gohan states. “Peppa and I wouldn’t have gotten as far as we did if it weren’t for your encouragement to keep pushing forward. Mom deserves credit too, sure, but it’s not just her. You and mom make a great team.”“Heehee. Thanks son.”>A. I’m going to check with Keli for a bit, see what she’s learned>B. Let’s give Baozi another visit!>C. Tien, have you heard anything about a group of air pirates in the area recently? That weird duo Izzy fought the other day said they had a Dragon Ball>D. I’m sure you’ll find a good student or two after me and Gohan one of these days, dad>E. Something else?
>>3013350>D. I’m sure you’ll find a good student or two after me and Gohan one of these days, dad
>>3013350>C. Tien, have you heard anything about a group of air pirates in the area recently? That weird duo Izzy fought the other day said they had a Dragon Ball
I wonder how the hell Pantea dodged a SSJ3 attack. I don't think Gohan ever told Peppa about it, though, so there's no way to ask.
>>3013350>D. I’m sure you’ll find a good student or two after me and Gohan one of these days, dad>E. Something else?Maybe we should look for the best student for dad to teach? The person on Earth with the most potential? Could mama and uncle Acer scry for that?
>>3013347That Smash Bros trivia amuses me greatly. Masaki got so lost he ended up an Assist Trophy. Also that pic is hilarious.>>3013350>D.Then>A.
>>3013374Let's not get sidetracked. Should focus on the ninjas first.
>>3013347>Heroes has all tails brownHowever, the avatars have not unlocked SS4 yet. So barring that the director just doesn't care about tail coloring, it's possible.
>>3013391I dunno, we could angle this into a three-way Ninja-Pirate-Defender kerfuffle.
>>3013350So many good choices...>CBecause dragon ball and also we need to keep the skies safe!>AKeli might have some good information by this point.And maybe B if there's time later? Baozi might reveal some deets about Vegeta before the tournament, or more ninja/crane leads.
>>3013392Even the ones that have gotten Super Saiyan 4, like Bardock, still have brown tails. Goku's tail is brown when he fights Super 17, too.>>3013350You nudge Goku in the arm with your elbow. “Ah, I’m sure you’ll find a good student after me and Gohan one of these days, dad. Maybe mom’ll be able to help you find ‘em.”He grins. “Thanks, Peppa. Until then, I wanna make sure you two get the best I can offer. Just like Acer and Chi-chi are doing for your cousin.”Yeah, Izzy- wait. Wait right! “Oh, crap, right! Tien, have you heard anything about any air pirates recently?”“...Air pirates?” he repeats.You nod. “Izzy fought a couple strange guys the other day, apparently one of them was trying to get a Dragon Ball from some air pirates.”“I have not, but that is rather curious.”“Wait... there was that strange airship from the other day, Tien.” Chiaotzu comments to him. “It was on the outskirts, the one that felt like it only had a few people on board.”He rubs his chin. “Hm... that probably should be looked into. Thank you for the heads up, Peppa.”“No problem! Oh, and, uh, is Keli available? I’d like to check up on some things she knows. Maybe we can piece some things together.” You add, telepathically, ‘And it could give them the impression I know less than I already do.’‘Understandable.’ Tien nods. “Training is almost over for the day, I can go tell her you wish to speak with her.”“Thank you!”“I’m going to catch up with Boazi.” Gohan comments.“Oh yeah, it’s been a while since Vegeta and I last talked. I’ll go with you.” Goku states.“Okay, see you later then, dad, bro!”You wait around for a short while before Keli comes over, Chiaotzu giving you what he saw in regards to that airship. He suspects that there might be a large amount of mechanical crew members, robot, cyborg, or otherwise, given the low number of Ki signatures he sensed. Though... maybe that could have something to do with the ninja. Might it be their base of operations?“Just so you’re aware, kid, I’m still taken.” Keli comments teasingly, approaching you. “Keep trying to see me like this and my girl might start asking YOU questions instead.”You fake a pout at her. “Oh har har. Very funny.”>A. You’re not my type anyway, so nyeh>B. Telepathic conversation on what we know? Just to be safe?>C. Maybe just find somewhere a bit more private to talk, might be able to bait one of them out>D. Something else?
>>3013480>A. You’re not my type anyway, so nyeh>No, you can't know what my type is>B. Telepathic conversation on what we know? Just to be safe?
>>3013480>A & B.Say it jokingly, of course.
>>3013480>A. You’re not my type anyway, so nyeh
>>3013480>A. You’re not my type anyway, so nyehhttps://youtu.be/1ZqGEiQlKLY
>>3013480>CStaring at each other and going back and forth stunt saying anything will probably raise more suspicions, better just play it straight.
>>3013521Hmm, how about just go for a walk, rather than doubling down on the acting suspicious language we just got jokingly accussed of?
>>3013521>>3013527Maybe a bit of both of these. Manage two conversations at once?
>>3013480>A. You’re not my type anyway, so nyeh"You are in my top ten tho."
>>3013543Know what? Backing. She is kinda cute.
>>3013538Walking silently is plenty reasonable, standing in from of each other is not.
>>3013480https://youtu.be/Qz-OOweIo-QYou wave your hand dismissively. “Well you’re not really my type anyway, so nyeh.” you tell her, sticking your tongue out playfully.“And you’re a little too young for me, kid.” She chuckles.“...Probably top 10 though.” you add with a sly smirk.Keli blushes slightly, not quite expecting that comment, then squints at you. “Great. Stuck with a would-be comedian.”“And no, you can’t know what my type is~” Okay maybe this is a little mean. Enough teasing her. ‘Standing and talking will probably raise suspicion. Let’s go somewhere while we catch up on what we know.’‘Fine, fine.’ She rolls her eyes as she walks with you. ‘Lao doesn’t seem to be doing much different, but every once in a while I catch him seeming a little tense. Especially ever since Vegeta got back.’Your tail sways behind you as you look up into the sky. ‘Definitely suspicious. The one we captured mentioned something about a “Warrior” before he... well, before I prevented him from taking some kind of pill. Has Lao showed any interest in ancient warriors of some sort? What about Bisa, or any of your other fellow students?’‘No, though I doubt they would be open to that kind of thing if they were. But... hrmn. I know that Lao has a couple books on some historical martial artists.’ she tells you, walking along. “So where are we going?” Keli asks aloud. ‘Best to have a destination in mind, Peppa. Keeps away suspicion, and if anyone follows we might be able to sense them when they arrive.’“You know any places that serve some spicy curry? Spiciest you can find?” you reply. ‘Gotcha. I think mom mentioned Krillin and Lapis training with an ancient Earth warrior with King Kai once, what was his name... Olibu? Yeah, Olibu.’‘Olibu... that does sound familiar. I know a few legends about the guy.’ Keli crosses her arms and looks around. “Couple places, actually. There’s one that has some pretty spicy Vindaloo, but if you want the spiciest there’s this restaurant that serves Phaal.” She then raises an eyebrow. ‘So like, did your parents know ahead of time when naming you, or is it completely coincidental? Kids your age are way more sensitive to it, so why can you tolerate it?’>A. Maybe it’s my monkey side of me, getting some kind of primal satisfaction at eating something that’s trying to fight back>B. No pain no gain! Spicy food makes you stronger!>C. What do you know about Olibu?>D. How about any legendary assassins or something? I’m sure Shen probably has a few things on them>E. Something else?
>>3013652>B & A.Taste buds Zenkai!>D.
>>3013652>E. Actually can't stand Bell Peppers. Yuck!
>>3013652>E. Is there a specific occurrence when Lao tenses up? Maybe when Vegeta is around Baozi or when he does or says something?I worry about Baozi...>D.Somewhat curious about the old man too.
>>3013689Bell Peppers aren't even all that spicy. Peppa appreciates REAL heat.
>>3013696With the REAL ultimate power!
>>3013691Backing this too.>>3013699So this is why the ninjas are after the Dragon Balls...
Do spicy foods enhance oral?
>>3013652>B. No pain no gain! Spicy food makes you stronger!>C. What do you know about Olibu?>E. "Dad, does it have anything to do with those people you fought with against that dark genie you told us about?"
>>3013768wait nix that last one. misread stuff.
>>3013652‘No pain no gain! Spicy food makes you stronger!’ You place your hands on your hips. ‘Eh, probably some kind of weird part of my monkey heritage too. Some kind of instinctual thing, eating a kind of food that’s fighting back.’Keli gives you a bemused look. ‘...You’re a strange girl, Peppa.’‘You know stranger.’ You look back at her, sticking out your tongue.“I ain’t paying, just so you know.” Keli tells you.“I have money.” you protest. ‘Besides, it’s only actual spicy foods. None of that cheap bell pepper stuff. Real heat.’‘Riiiiiight.’‘Anyway, I have to wonder, when Lao tends to tense up, does it come at any particular time? Any sort of cause for the reaction?’Keli points out the restaurant. ‘Aside from things relating to Vegeta, not exactly. Maybe, maybe, a few odd looks here and there, like he’s expecting something. But aside from that, it’s hard to really pinpoint any real cause.’‘...Starting to worry about Baozi now.’ You look at the menu outside. Oof. That’s... a little pricy. 2400 Zenni for that main dish. ‘Hey, might this warrior be some kind of legendary assassin? Like, has Shen ever mentioned something like that?’She taps a finger to her chin. ‘Well... maybe. I know Tao and Shen have mentioned a couple people from their past. I know at least there was this like... some kind of “Black Peach” assassin from the west about 200 years ago that Tao seemed to respect.’ Keli then looks over to you. ‘...Maybe it could be some kind of alien warrior?’One potential idea. ‘Well... what do you know about Olibu?’‘Eh, the usual. A few legends about him like the Twelve Labors and the Slaying of the Circling Serpent and...’ Her eyes widen. ‘Olibu... was the one who beat Majin Ozotto the first time, wasn’t he?’...Crap.>A. Ozotto probably isn’t their goal, I doubt they could control him even with the talismans, and we already beat him once>B. Them getting Olibu on their side somehow... maybe using those talismans?>C. Alien warriors... the ninja didn’t specify anything about it being from Earth, now that you think about it>D. ...You sure you can’t spare a couple Zenni? Split it?>E. You know what, maybe you should try something cheaper>F. Something else?
>>3013788>F. Something else?"Maybe it has something to do with the Nemurians?"
>>3013788>A, C, D.What aliens do we know might fit the bill? Sadly/luckily I doubt it's like, Hit or something.
>>3013796The Demon God that Hirudagarn is based off of?
>>3013799...Hmm. Maybe there's something to that. Don't think they know much about Hirudegarn though....Bojack?
>>3013813..probaby Bojack.His group is called the Galaxy Soldiers.
>>3013827>The ninja are working to bring back a powerful space pirate...Wait a secondWAS THIS YOUR PLAN ALL ALONG, KATO?! Your secret agenda, to get ninja space pirates?!
>>3013832I plead the fifth.
>>3013788>A. Ozotto probably isn’t their goal, I doubt they could control him even with the talismans, and we already beat him once>C. Alien warriors... the ninja didn’t specify anything about it being from Earth, now that you think about it
>>3013834>plead the fifthnuh uh, not giving you anymore dragon balls
>>3013834I knew it. You can't hide who you truly are, Marika Kato!
>>3013834Waitaminute...WAS KOUGEKI A NINJA PIRATE THIS ENTIRE TIME
>>3013839>>3013842>>3013852You guys are great.
Does Gohan have red eyes? Does Izumi have black eyes or blue eyes?
>>3013788‘Ozotto probably isn’t their goal. Even if they could control him, we beat him once before.’ You scrutinize the sign. Well... there are cheaper items. Still spicy too. ‘Besides, we kicked his but once, we can do it again.’‘True. But where does that leave us?’ Keli looks into her capsule purse. “Eh, I’ve got enough for later. Probably can afford something small.”“Got a date tonight?” you ask aloud. ‘Maybe the Nemurians or... hmm. Maybe you’re on to something with the aliens. He never specified this warrior being from Earth...’“Tomorrow, actually.” Keli replies aloud. ‘Okay, so where does that lead us then?’‘...There was that one guy who has a grudge against Piccolo, I think. What’s his name... Kougeki? Maybe he has something to do with all this.’ This could be your lead.‘But why? Would he have someone he’s trying to bring back?’‘Could be, could be...’ You’ve got 2000 Zenni. Most you can spend it on is a 1900 meal. Rrrggghh. “...Sure you can’t spare a couple Zenni for a poor little girl like me?”Keli squints. “Date. Tomorrow. Me. Girlfriend. Romantic evening together.”“Fiiiiine.” you grumble out.‘Again, you’re too young for me.’ Keli comments, then adds with a look of scrutiny, ‘...Are you even like, into girls?’>A. W-well... kinda...>B. Iunno, maybe not>C. ...Okay, real talk for a minute. Keli... how did you... know you were?>D. Change of subject change of subject change of subject!>E. Kougeki... Kougeki... Keli, maybe once we’re done, you can try and see if that could lead you anywhere. One of us can check with Piccolo, too>F. Something else?
>>3013882>C. ...Okay, real talk for a minute. Keli... how did you... know you were?
>>3013882>C.Leaning towards A, but would be a good idea to ask her.Then,>E.
>>3013882https://youtu.be/ygbE4SgFZvQYou’re quiet for a... much longer time than you mean to be as you think about how to answer her question. Keli nervously takes a step back, looking down. “...I-I’m sorry, I didn’t mean-”“No, no... it’s just...” You bite your lip. Welp. This is already super awkward. Time to make it more awkward! Haha crap. “Keli... real talk for a moment. How did... ah, I mean...” You slowly turn your head up to her. “...How did you know you were?”She looks down at you like a deer in headlights. “...Hell of a question, kid.” She rubs her head, fingers running through her white hair uneasily. “I... you want to really know?”“Please.”“During Pilaf’s first Mifan Tournament...” she starts off, with an uneasy wince as she seems to recall an old memory. “I... guess I first... really started to ‘notice’ girls then, when I saw your mom and Chi-chi fighting together. The way they both looked so cool. I wanted to be like them. I wanted... a lot of things, things that just didn’t really make sense for a while. It was during the 23rd World Martial Arts Tournament that I finally started to piece those feelings together. Heh, puberty, am I right?” She looks down again, then takes a deep breath. “...Your, uh, teacher, Chuu Lee, is the first girl I really realized I was attracted to. Where things finally started to come together for me. I didn’t just think she was cool, I didn’t just want to be a fighter like her... I... liked her.”“...I don’t mean to make you drag up some memories you-”“No, no, it’s not like it was ever any big secret.” Her hands fidget. “I know it’s a little selfish, and I probably knew even then, but one of the reasons I started training in martial arts, one of the reasons I joined up with the Crane School, was deep back in my mind, something told me that if I could get to her level, maybe... I could get her to see me the way I saw her.” Keli exhales a deep breath. “Didn’t work out. Worse, during that whole Black Water Mist thing, I ended up being used against her. And then, well... Melee...” She shakes her silver hair. “Well, guess that was a pretty lucky rebound, huh?”You giggle softly. “I kinda have some... very vague memories of that. Mostly getting mad and punching someone in the face. But I guess I do remember a little bit of... that.”“Ah jeeze...” she grumbles as her face goes red. “The point is, I was just a little younger than you were when I finally, really knew. Of course, I’ve grown beyond that selfish little girl I was back then. I take pride in being a Crane School student. And Chuu Lee and I are still friends.” She pats your head. “...That help you out at all?”(cont.)
>>3013981“A... a bit, yeah.” you smile meekly. “So... no moments of really, well, questioning...?”Keli shrugs. “Questioning, sometimes. It was never really all that easy, to be honest. But I knew, I really knew, when I saw her. It wasn’t JUST her that I noticed, sure, but it was because of her that I finally was able to put everything together.”Guess that does... clear a few things in your mind. “Thanks, Keli.”Hesitantly, teeth clenched, she asks you, “...I take it your parents don’t know yet.”You shake your head. “Not... that I’m really worried.”“Lucky.”Ow. “Sorry-”“Nah, nah... heh, we all know what your mom’s like, and, honestly? I think your dad wouldn’t care even if you announced it from the mountaintops.” She takes a few steps forward. “...You going to be okay, kid?”“Yeah. Yeah. Sorry for... putting all of this at your feet.” You rub your heel against the ground. ‘Especially with what I dragged you out here for originally.’“You’re fine, kid.” Keli ruffles your hair. ‘...Should probably not lose focus of that.’‘Right! So... this Kougeki guy, we know a bit about what he looks like, right? Maybe if you get the chance, you can see if that’ll lead you anywhere. Plus one of us, even mom or dad or something, can check with Piccolo, see if he can give us some leads on this.’Keli brings her fist forward. ‘Sounds like a plan. Best of luck, Son Peppa.’‘Best of luck, Keli. And thanks again.’ Your fist bumps against hers in affirmation.You look up into the blue skies. You feel... better. More than just because you have another lead. A bit more confidence in yourself. No matter what lies ahead, you’ll be able to take it on!https://youtu.be/djps3pGVK1c>COCOA SOCIAL LINK 5: COMPLETE!>KELI SOCIAL LINK 1: COMPLETE!>GOHAN AND PANTEA SOCIAL LINK 6: COMPLETE!>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST KAI #3 END.>Twitter account is @KatoQm, will have status updates there>Got some questions for the QM? Suggestions? Throw them at ask.fm/QMKato and I'll try to answer them as best I canAll right folks, that's all for this thread. Thanks for sticking around for so long! I’ll be around for a bit for questions and such. Did y’all have fun? Also, guess there’s a slight change of plans, but I’d like to give y’all the option: would you prefer one more thread going into this plot, and start the Tournament at the end of it, or get on with the Tournament at the start of the next thread?
>>3013986>GOHAN AND PANTEA SOCIAL LINK 6: COMPLETE!You sure it's not reversed?
>>3013986Fun times, Kato. I'm good with another plot thread before the tournament, if you have worthwhile stuff in mind.Also I gotta ask, how tough are Yamcha and Pantea really?
>>3014007Why does everything need a tier? They have more experience and plenty of strength, whether we can best that in the tournament is up to luck and how difficult the DCs are.
>>3013986Loved this thread Kato, thanks for running! Peppa and Gohan have great friends, Izzy is cool, and was nice to see how all of them differ. Also nice to see Peppa deal with all that, and for Keli to give some backstory. Nice that she got a Social Link too, Peppa is making new friends! I'd be down with another thread of build-up if you'd like, not like the Tournament is going anywhere.
>>3013986Good run, lots of fun, a nice way to round out the wild rides of the past few sessions. Looks like I need to clean up my notes again on the ninjas too.Getting that social link makes me feel a little better about Cocoa not getting attacked by ninjas. Only a little though. The conversation felt a little awkward, but Peppa's known Keli for years, so I guess an older cousin dynamic might not be too out of place.I am really glad to see Keli getting a little more play. She somehow ended up being one of my favorite secondary support characters, so seeing her develop warms my heart. Unexpected social link popped up too. Keli might be a nice semi-constant presence because she's a bit more mature than the usual group. Although building a link with someone like Tomato might be fun too.Anyway, I don't mind putting off the tournament, but it would be nice to see if the ninja's have any machinations in action! It might be like a repeat of the 22nd WMA, but that could be fun.
I wonder what the tournaments would be like with 21's waves emitting from the ring?
>>3014007Just curious about relative strengths and mastery of abilities/forms, I don't need powerlevels or anything. I'd assumed they were a notch below us at least, but Pantea dodging that last attack is bugging me.
>>3014066Oops meant to reply to >>3014012Rather than, yanno, myself.
So, who all are you guys hearing as character voices?I'm kinda hearing Stephanie Sheh as Peppa, Clifford Chapin as Gohan (but like, a chiller Bakugo, or maybe halfway between his Bakugo and Cabba), and now I can't unhear Izzy as Lisa Ortiz. Pantea I'm hearing more as Caitlin Glass (her Winry voice especially), Baozi as Chris Sabat doing a more upbeat Vegeta Jr. voice, and Daikon as Alison Viktorin doing her Conan voice.>>3014021How old is Keli, anyway? Late 20's, 30?
>>3014068Dolya Gavanski for Maple.
>>3014068IIRC, WMAT23 took place ~753/4, and it's 774 now. Peppa's 13/14(15? how does one account for the time chamber?), so Keli would have been 11/12 at the time. So she'd be early thirties, I guess.
>>3014073Maple's VA has to be Canadian though.>>3014076That makes sense. Good to have older friends.
>>3014081>Maple's VA has to be Canadian though.
>>3014104Huh, it says Avril Lavigne's only voice acting gig was a opossum in Over the Hedge.
Man, Thread 19 of Tuffle Quest Z is still so good.
>>3014068Peppa: Luci Christian (doing a young, bubbly Nami voice)Gohan: Sean Chiplock (a less assholish Revali voice)
Wait a minute, Gohan doesn't talk.
>>3014104Tara Strong's also an option.
>>3014066I feel this is relevant.
Although it might end up as a diversion, it might be nice to talk to Lao at some point. He's currently a suspect, but it would be nice to hear where he stands on Shao and Baozi.Vegeta clearly has him strung out, and putting a stop to possible family drama before it gets too far out of hand would be nice. That's the last thing the little prince needs.
>>3013986Good thread Kato. More ninja plot, want to chase down that airship lead.Also what's Videl's Smash Bros main?>>3017571Should be careful with that, don't want him to think we're on to him if he is actually the culprit.
>>3017991That's why you make the conversation all about him, Baozi, Shao and Vegeta. There's still a lot of details that could be gleaned from just that chat.If things play out like I think they might, it could end in a non-violent solution.
>>3014003Nah.>>3014007>>3014016>>3014021>>3017991Great to hear! Thanks for playing!>Also I gotta ask, how tough are Yamcha and Pantea really?Yamcha and Tien are about the same in terms of strength, while Pantea is a little bit stronger. Videl is stronger than all of them. Of them all though, Tien is the most skilled, but Pantea has been trying exceptionally hard to make up for her difference in strength with skill.>I am really glad to see Keli getting a little more play. She somehow ended up being one of my favorite secondary support characters, so seeing her develop warms my heart.Very happy to hear that! Honestly I've tried to keep check on some things I could have improved on with what we went through with Z and trying to improve on them here.>>3014068>>3014076>>3014081Keli is currently 30, while Peppa is 13 (14 if you count the year in the HTC).Also those are some interesting choices.>Also what's Videl's Smash Bros main?Captain Falcon.>>3017571>>3017991>>3018101Things to definitely keep in mind.And all right, I'll still be checking in for any more thoughts on it, but so far looks like y'all favor holding off the Tournament until the end of next thread.
>>3018101Good point. Still, if he is, he knows we captured one of them, so we need to be careful on how we phrase our questions.>>3018280>Captain Falcon.Nice.
>>3018324Struth. That one of them had been caught might loosen his tongue, but ninjas should be secondary to the conversation. It still might reveal some of his motives if he's involved. Besides, we have a good conversation starter: we both didn't ever care for Vegeta and think he's a jerk. Depending on how things go with the other topics we could make an ally, even if he's one of the ninjas.I should probably write everything out at some point.
>>3018458I'd still like to train with Vegeta.Maybe even take him to Mt. Rumble with Baozi as a way to extend an olive branch.
>>3019471No more Mt. Rumble please! And fuck olive braches, all he's getting is a well of salt, baby!
>>3019471I really don't know if training with him is a possibility short of kowtowing to him and really buttering him up. Or forcing Peppa onto his next space excursion, but even then he'd be more likely to abandon her at the first chance rather than take her along.That being said, I would like to do more with Vegeta, but it seems like the only ways to make that an option would be to play to his ego, or give him a gentle schooling and showing that Peppa isn't Maple.
>>3019479Anon...that isn't the Son-Mahogany way.And I love Mt. Rumble as a training device.Up there with the pendulum room.Then we take him to Konpei. Vegeta hasn't met him yet, eh?>>3019560Peppa is part Saiyan, she's got that going for her.
Will Bulma eventually make a trading figure game and start shilling it at every opportunity?PEOPLE OF CONTON CITY
>>3019601>Peppa is part Saiyan, she's got that going for her.Truth. But the part Saiyan she has is the Saiyan Vegeta hates the most.It's an uphill battle.
>>3019658I'm sure he likes Peppa more than he likes Onio.
>>3019658Eh, I feel like our Vegeta doesn't have as much anger towards our Goku as canon. The two don't really have the rivalry that the series does. Mostly thanks to Maple.Ya know. I don't think Goku has even fought or sparred with Vegeta.
>>3019601You're right, that is the Son-Mahogany way... but we're not a Son-Mahogany right now, are we?
It's kind of a drag that the Path to Power is singular and everyone who can throw a punch has to get hooked in on it, with us dragging them down the whole thing by the ear. Can't other people just train their own way instead of being palette swaps of us?
>>3019701What are you even talking about
>>3019732All these cheapo power up training methods, we take EVERYONE up to that Mt. Rumble, it was cool the first time we did it and now everyone else is doing it so they can fly all sparky as well. I guess what I want to say is that these "Unlocking" rituals are so common you would have to be an idiot not to try one, and when everyone's powered up it will be as if no one is powered up or special. The Saiyan God ritual is gonna be even worse when that comes up.
>>3019684>Peppa Son-Mahogany>Not a Son-Mahogany>>3019701...What?
>>3019748>You are Son Peppa, the Tuffle-Saiyan hybrid daughter of two of Earth's Champions, Maple and GokuI'd say it's one of the finer perks of these new MCs, not one of them having that amalgamation for a surname.
>>3019701>>3019747>>3019751Why does your ID keep changing, anon?
>>3019747So instead they should do what, sit around and be useless? Come up with some half-baked, one-use skill that should be OP and yet they'll fail at most of the time like Krillin's Destructo Disk? Other people getting power ups doesn't make them pallate swaps.
>>3019762How about they come up with some of their own shit or go looking for other training methods?
>>3019764Like what, exactly?
>>3019747I like training our friends and allies. Sometimes total strangers and kinda enemies too.It has shown both positive and negative effects already.Positive in that we don't have to deal with 'Goku Time' all the time like the series. Tien was awesome against Ozotto for instance. The negative being the ninja issue. The wrong type of people learning these techniques and abusing them is actually refreshing. I was expecting something bad to happen with all our equivalent exchange. Name which characters are palette swaps of one another and maybe you have point. Is Chuu Lee like Maple? Nope. Is Videl like Peppa? No. Each fighter has their strengths and weaknesses. Now if not Mt. Rumble, what do your propose? >>3019764(I literally predicted what you were going to say.)'The characters should come up with stuff themselves'They do, anon. We just help them with what we know.
>>3019765I don't know, nor do I need to. It's all up to them.
>>3019769You mean it's all up to Kato, anon.
>>3019772Now you're getting it!Also, Ayn Rand: was she really that bad?
>>3019769>>3019772>>3019775Most of the new power ups and such do have some basis in Canon or filler, Kato keeps pulling from there. If this stuff is really such a problem, why don't you dig something out of there to use?Hell, give me a few minutes and I'll find something for you.
>>3019785I'd actually be very interested in that.I've got a lot of ideas of my own for techniques for the group.A power pole version of Avan Strash for instance.>Avan STAFF!
>>3019785Okay, here we go:Both Goku and Trunks, and in Shin Budokai Vegeta too, were able to absorb Spirit Bombs and achieve a brief but vastly stronger form. In Fusions it's even a technique called Spirit Bomb Absorbsion. Anyone who's learned the Spirit Bomb might be able to do that.http://dragonball.wikia.com/wiki/Spirit_Bomb_AbsorptionTook me all of 10 minutes to think this one up. What do you say, Kato? Think this could work?
>>3019815Had an idea for this actually. I figured you could use the spirit bomb technique like Naruto's Sage technique.Draw in energy to yourself, and gradually empower your body with life energy of the planet. That way you don't get the danger of blowing your body up like absorbing an entire spirit bomb. (Multi-form like Naruto's shadow clones would need to be the ones to absorb the energy.)
>>3019818Could be a good idea too. Something like that. Who all knows the Spirit Bomb? Krillin and Piccolo, right?
>>3019821Unsure.Don't have a techniques list for everyone. Maybe if we did, it'd dispel the notion that everyone is 'the same'.
>>3019662Probably true. It's also true that Vegeta can ignore Onio's existence, which isn't the same with Peppa.>>3019677Point taken. Most of Vegeta's anger towards Goku (and Peppa and Gohan) stems from Maple and her Tuffleness, impacting them by proxy.
There's Dragonball After that had Vegeta go through all of Goku's training to figure out how he got so strong.I'm incline to try that for our Geets.
I would like to point out. I'm not adverse with everyone going off to do training arcs of their own. I encourage it because it'll keep Towa on her toes because of the diverse and different training.Maybe pull a 'Straw Hat's Seperation Serial' where all our allies are pushed to different realities. Not just in the Toriyama-verse but beyond like the Dark Genie who went through the larger Shonenverse. The Earth's Defense Force's greatest strength are each other.Divide them up and conquer could be Towa's plan, but it just ends up allowing each individual stronger.
>>3019830It would be helpful.>>3019831Ironically I think Peppa is among the most Saiyan-like of the kids. It's tempered by her upbringing, but she's very fight-happy.>>3019867Maybe once he stops being a dick.>>3019933She kind of tried that on Namek, but it could be beat. Maybe after the Buu stuff we could have people get separated across time, maybe even across universes too.
>>3019812Machinegun Pole where it extends and retracts so rapidly the air pressure is like a railgun.
>>3019815I think Trunks did that in the Zamasu Arc, and when I say "I think" that means I think "he got madder while blonde" is dumb.
>>3019867Isn't Vegeta technically among the strongest right now? And he can't get all mind bent, so that's just another tool in his belt. And a reason to want him dead.>>3019962Peppa probably is the most likely to throw herself into a fight right now. If she can keep herself from becoming Maple Jr., more options with Vegeta will probably open on their own.I'm still of the mind we should aim to give him a thrashing at the WMAT to help drive home our sincerity.
>>3020097As long as Peppa remembers Konpei's words she'll be fine.If we do fight Vegeta, I'd rather do it outside of the ring to be honest. Peppa, like Goku wouldn't be satisfied unless we beat them at their best.Sorta like a certain Saiyan Prince in canon let an android get to perfection.
>>3018458>>3019471>>3019479>>3019560>>3019601>>3019658>>3019677>>3019831>>3020097Vegeta doesn't like Peppa; he finds her behavior annoying at best of the times and often more infuriating than anything, and her heritage still brings out a gut reaction of her just being "wrong" to him. But at the same time he's managed to hold off on snapping at her, because on some level her drive to improve herself and her willingness to fight shine through a lot. If you were able to get through to him that Peppa isn't like her mother, he'd be more willing to show a degree of begrudging respect. Or you can go further with this level of animosity and actually try to piss him off, he'd certainly stop holding back a rant he's wanted to shout at Peppa for a long time. Gohan doesn't quite annoy him as much, but he also doesn't particularly like the boy either.Goku is an interesting case to Vegeta because while he doesn't like the fact that Goku married a Tuffle, he doesn't have any built-up animosity towards proving himself better than Goku. He can acknowledge that Goku has gotten extremely strong through training, and accepts that Goku was able to unlock the power of Super Saiyan before he could. He doesn't LIKE that, but he accepts it. He still wants to prove himself a better warrior than Goku, but it's not quite the same degree Vegeta had in canon, especially Buu arc Vegeta. He feels that his rightful place is at the top, but if Goku and other Saiyans can keep pushing him further, he'll allow it.>>3019632Ffffffffffff-...Writing that down.>>3019812Spinning version of it? Could work.>>3019815>>3019818>>3019821That's not a bad idea. And yes, Krillin and Piccolo know the technique, while Lapis is aware of the mechanics behind it. Another couple fighters might be aware of it too.>>3019933>>3019962Something to consider for later, sure.>>3020051An interesting idea too.>>3020097>Isn't Vegeta technically among the strongest right now?Indeed he is. He's actually about equal with Goku right now, and might have some fairly dangerous skills under his belt too.My apologies for getting to this so late.
>>3020888I probably missed an answer to this question, but will we ever play as Maple again?
Huh. I just realized, Peppa hasn't really done much posing so far.
>>3021943She ain't an exact clone of Maple after all
>>3021946On one hand, dorky posing is fun. On the other, I guess this sort of makes sense. Peppa probably doesn't want people just thinking she's a copy of her mother, and instead of trying for flashy, dorky posing maybe she'd be into more cool, reserved, almost stoic kinds of posing. Maybe with a laconic one-liner too.
>>3022002On a scale of "jeez how embarrassing, mom" dramatic posing is about 11/10.
>>3021761I'd like to kick Vegeta's teeth in as her.>>3022188I dunno, when your parent is THE shit to the world, I think that would warp what you consider embarrassing.
>>3022002>>3022188peppa though isn't incapable of posing,I bet she can outdo the ginyu force if she wanted too.She just prefers to save her energy for sensible stuff like her pops.
>>3022275Gotenks thought he could outdo the Ginyu Force, Gohan thought he could outdo Majin Buu. You would have to keep up with your training regimen to stand a chance.
>>3022188>>3022275Cool, dramatic, stoic poses with an equally cool one-liner would help set Peppa apart from Maple just a bit.Also Kato where do you get all those Note pics you use for Peppa?
>>3022285>>3022531Peppa is the Jiren of the pose group. While Maple is the Toppo.
>>3022531You can find many random pictures on /dbg/.
>>3022631Peppa isn't THAT serious yet>>3022673I'm aware. I've even posted some.
Quick everybody, put your pics up and give your lewds and memes to Kato.
>>3019830Crap I think I missed this bit>Don't have a techniques list for everyone. Maybe if we did, it'd dispel the notion that everyone is 'the same'.Well... I can kinda fix that, but giving out full lists could ruin some surprises. How about this: I can give out technique lists if asked, and either around or after the Tournament I can add skills that those with Social Links with Peppa are known to her. That sound good?>>3021761Potentially, depending on how things go. I personally would like to focus on the Tuffle Trio more before we go back to her, but should circumstances call for it, I could do a brief switch over to her.>>3021943>>3021946>>3022002>>3022188>>3022207>>3022275>>3022285>>3022531>>3022631Honestly it's up to y'all on if you want to continue that, but I do agree that not focusing on flashy posing can help set Peppa apart from Maple.>Also Kato where do you get all those Note pics you use for Peppa?I've been taking a number of them from the Victory Mission manga and the animated commercials for Heroes, as well as a few bits of official art, but otherwise I use that bits I can find. There's quite a bit on Pixiv. Karonie's art is quite helpful too.
>>3023621>That sound good?Sounds good to me Kato.And guess that makes sense, was just curious.>>3022865>>3023631Anon why.Though your pic reminds me, is there anyone we know of that we could pair up Videl with? We know the kind of guys she likes in canon, but have her tastes changed at all, and in either case, who would be best fit for her?
>>3023712>who would be best fit for her?
>>3023719I'm personally against us pairing up with Videl. Peppa and Videl can stay as best friends. Even if she does end
