As Izumi helps put a stop to a Mummy’s curse, Peppa arrives on Imecka with Maple’s group and encounters more mechanical monsters on the planet. Encountering a clash between rebels trying to overthrow the tyrannical Don Kee and and his forces, Peppa steps in to protect innocent civilians, and with Raditz encounters a mechanical humanoid going by the name “Mugen” with ties to the monsters, looking for the alien warrior Ledgic. What awaits the trio in the times to come? Good luck, Izzy! Good luck, Peppa! Good luck, Gohan!
>>3513564“So, that’s all what happened after the Tournament?” Zarid asks. You give a nod. “Man, Gohan, this is some crazy stuff.”“Crazy is one way to put it. Still, now it’s all behind us, and more importantly, Tapion and his brother are free from Hirudegarn, for good.”Zarid rubs his chin. “You mentioned they were planning on checking back on their homeworld, any clue on when they’ll leave?”“A couple weeks. Bulma’s gotten the star charts for them all set up, and has been able to get them a ship capable of getting them there. In the meantime, they’ve been spending their time catching up on all the lost time, and doing a bit of training with us.” You grin. “I’ve actually been helping them learn a certain technique. The Kaio-Ken.”“Oh yeah, I remember seeing that. The one with that blazing red aura, right?” he asks, and you nod again.>A. Actually, I was going to help them practice it again today, want to come with?>B. How about you and Sachie, you mentioned the two of you have been training under the same master, what’s he like?>C. Say, anything you wanted to do while we were here? There are plenty of cool places to check out>D. Something else?
>>3513565>>A. Actually, I was going to help them practice it again today, want to come with?>>B. How about you and Sachie, you mentioned the two of you have been training under the same master, what’s he like?Good luck today Kato.
>>3513565Supporting >>3513576Happy 4th Tuffle Quest anniversary, Kato!
>>3513564>A>B>D. "If we have time I was hoping to take them to Mt. Rumble before they go off world, would you like to join us?"
>>3513565>>A. Actually, I was going to help them practice it again today, want to come with?>>B. How about you and Sachie, you mentioned the two of you have been training under the same master, what’s he like?
>>3513565You get an idea. “Actually, I was about to head out and help them practice today. Wanna come with?”“Sure. Seeing how that technique works sounds like a good idea.” he replies cheerfully. “It’d certainly give me a new goal to work towards.”“Sweet! I’ll take you to them!” You call for the Nimbus, Zarid hopping on it as the two of you take off towards Tapion and Minotia. Along the way, you think to ask Zarid, “So, you and Sachie are still training under the same master, right? What’s he like?”“Master Tsukutsun Tsun is a Kung Fu master from China, though he took up residence in Penguin Village with his family. He looks a bit like Mr... Yamcha, I believe was his name? He’s rather polite but can be stern when training his students. Heh, Sachie actually got recommended to train with him by her father, to help hone her physical abilities. I joined up with her in order to get stronger myself.” Hesitantly, Zarid adds, “He does have some... unusual abilities, though.”“How so?”Zarid rubs the back of his neck. “He turns into a tiger whenever touched by a woman.”...What?He laughs. “It was strange when I first saw it too. Sachie tried to shake his hand, and then bam, became a tiger person.”You... actually aren’t as surprised as you probably should be. “Heh, one of my great aunt’s fighters is a werewolf who turns back into a person whenever he sees a full moon. So, sounds like your master might have something similar.”“In addition, he’s exceptionally strong, able to keep pace with some of the powerhouses of the village. Way stronger than Sachie or I when we started out, and apparently he’s got a hidden strength that allows him to surpass even Mrs. Arale when he’s enraged enough.”“...The same Arale that beat my dad?” you ask him. “Wow, no wonder you two are so tough.”“We still have a ways to go, and Sachie honestly makes it look easy with all her tricks she’s been able to learn. But I’m going to keep at it. For my village and for myself.”Finally arriving at where you told Tapion and Minotia to meet you, Zarid hops off the Nimbus and you all introduce one another. Tapion seems curious about the new arrival, while Minotia is almost overly friendly towards him, the young boy excited over this bout of training.“Come on, Gohan! Let’s see it again! I think I’ve almost got the hang of this!” Minotia declares with almost boundless energy.“Calm down, Minotia.” Tapion tells his brother with a soft laugh.>A. All right, best way to really demonstrate it is by using it. So follow what I do step by step, and then let it all out!>B. Better take things easy, just go over the basics again for Zarid’s sake>C. Tapion, can you show me how much you can manage at this time? I wanna spar a bit, if that’s okay with you>D. Something else?
>>3513846>China"Where's that?" "Has Master Tsun ever fought a majin?" >B.
>>3513846>A. All right, best way to really demonstrate it is by using it. So follow what I do step by step, and then let it all out!
>>3513853>>3513927Backing these too
>>3513927Woops, too late.Hey, if you haven't read it yet, here's my fanfic where Peppa and Gohan do something special for their mom on Mother's Day:https://pastebin.com/V69XkshCCheck out this glowing review!"Read through it. Was okay." - Kato
>>3513846Well, for Zarid’s sake, maybe you should go over the basics again. But at the same time, you wanna make sure Tapion and Minotia have this down. “Okay! Start it from the top. You focus your Ki around your body, calming it but readying it. Your mind needs to be focused for the intense Ki control needed. Then, timed with the beat of your heart, you let out that tranquil surge of power!” As you state each step, you preform it yourself, declaring out, “KAIO-KEN!” as you do.Zarid takes a step back as your Ki surges, Minotia watching you excitedly, but Tapion keeping the calm but focused look on his face. He takes a deep breath. “All right. Here it goes.” Tapion powers up, letting his Ki build up around him, then releasing it in that tranquil surge, declaring as you did, “KAIO-KEN!”A red aura surrounds him as his power doubles, Tapion taking a moment to focus it properly, his body calmed but focused as he maintains the state. You grin wide. “Looks like you’ve managed it perfectly.”“Man, it’s a good thing you learned this after we got rid of Hirudegarn. Who knows what might’ve happened if your Ki and the monster’s Ki got boosted like this.” Minotia comments.“Man, it seems so simple in concept, but I notice that it takes very psecise timing.” Zarid observes. “You said timing it with a heartbeat, yes?”“Yeah. It’s multiplying your own power by sort of throttling it. Thing is, it can take a real toll on your body if you’re not careful. Wears out your muscles and stamina reserves. Heh, apparently took my mom months to learn the first time she tried.”Tapion drops out of the form and exhales deeply. “Practice does make perfect. Even with high levels of strength, one wrong move could make all of this go fairly poorly.”(cont.)
>>3514010Zarid scratches his head. “Wonder if that’s what Master Tsun uses, in concept. The aura isn’t quite the same, but maybe it’s how he gets so much stronger when furious...”“Say, you mentioned he was from... China, right? Where is that, again?” you ask.“A ways away from my homeland, but closer to Sachie’s. Has a very rich martial arts tradition, among the oldest in the world.”“Huh, neat. Has he fought any dangerous foes from there? Like, demons or genies or Majins or aliens?”“Think so. There was this one powerful man-eating demon I remember him telling Sachie and myself about, sealed away in a teapot, that he and Mrs. Arale fought together. He doesn’t actually remember beating the monster, and for a long time assumed it was Arale that beat it, only for his wife to explain to him that he was the one to do so, attacking it in rage when it advanced on her.”“Ahhh. The power of love.” Minotia comments, laughing. “Of course, of course. Cliche, but hey, it works.”You laugh. “Well, intense emotion can help bring out hidden depths of strength. That’s kinda how we’ve been able to unlock a different kind of power, though I remember Mr. Konpei explaining that there are some complications to that. Something about chakras and the like.”>A. Say, Tapion, wanna test out your power against me? Practice does make perfect!>B. Speaking of transformations, there’s another one you guys might be interested in: the Raio-ken>C. Zarid, you wanna give it a shot? See how well you can manage towards unlocking the Kaio-ken?>D. Something else?
>>3514014>B. Speaking of transformations, there’s another one you guys might be interested in: the Raio-ken
>>3514014>B. Speaking of transformations, there’s another one you guys might be interested in: the Raio-kenWonder if Mt. Rumble has a gift shop running solely on the people the Mahogany family keeps bringing by? Lime should get in on this.
Doesn't Chuu Lee's family live by Mt. Rumble? Also Yaochun, wonder whatever happened to that guy.
>>3514014“Speaking of transformations, I’ve another one you guys might be interested in. It’s a little something my mom managed to develop when she was much younger: the Raio-ken.”“Raio-ken?” the three of them repeat.“Yeah. Mom was able to learn it thanks to a special crown that teaches you how to dodge lightning. It’s up on a mountain near where Chuu Lee, one of my first teachers, lives.” you explain. “Though, it does kinda take knowledge of how the Kaio-ken works to really be able to use effectively, but it’s much easier to maintain in comparison. Unlike the Kaio-ken, which boosts your power overall, the Raio-ken uses that same kind of tranquil surge to increase the uder’s speed. One of my strongest moves actually has that as a part of it, using its speed-bosting to great effect.”“Interesting. I may have to check it out.” Tapion comments.“I wanna learn it! Can I see, Gohan?” Minotia calls out excitedly.“Heh, well, a demonstration won’t hurt... watch this.” Your aura flares up, sparking slightly as you then declare, “Raio-ken!” and bolt off into the sky, flying around at tremendous speeds, streaking through the air. After giving them the fancy display, you head back down, standing before them with a proud smile on your face. “So, how about it?”“SO COOOOOL!” Minotia declares excitedly.“That’s amazing. And... you said your mom was the one who developed this technique?” Zarid asks.“More or less. It was a lesson that she learned when she was much younger, about my age, really. On how to be quiet as the sky, but faster than lightning, training reflexes at high speeds and harnessing her power in new ways.”“Man, this could be really handy next time Sachie and I spar... how long does it take to truly manage something like this?” Zarid questions next.“Well, it would help to get the basics down with the Kaio-ken, but I could show you guys how it works. Tapion’s the only one who might manage it completely though...”“I am willing to try it out.” Tapion replies. “Though I would also wish to test the Kaio-ken on its own.”>A. All right! Let’s head to Mount Rumble!>B. Better test it out first then. Okay, come at me, Tapion!>C. Could probably wait on this, actually, let’s make sure you two have the Kaio-ken down>D. Something else?
>>3514125>B. Better test it out first then. Okay, come at me, Tapion!
>>3514125>A & BStart on the ground, then train on the way.
>>3514161Shall we...dare I say it....Have a race?
>>3514125“I’ve got an idea. Let’s test it out first, so you’ve got a good hang of this, but let’s do it in a more... challenging way, to really put it to the test.” You take a fighting stance. “Minotia, Zarid, you guys follow along, Tapion and I will start heading towards the mountain, but we’ll train along the way, test the speed and skill with the technique.”“Sounds like an interesting challenge. I accept.” Tapion replies, charging his Ki. “Whenever you’re ready, Gohan.”“Okay, come at me, Tapion!”“KAIO-KEN!”The red-headed alien bolts towards you, with you doing your best to dodge his attacks. He’s not quite up to the level needed to do some serious damage to you with the technique, but you’re using this to help yourself train and learn. And you are quite surprised by how well Tapion’s taken to the technique, his own skills clearly amplified by it. You start on the ground, but eventually take to the air as you avoid Tapion’s blows, dodging and parrying as best you can.“You’re still holding the technique. Nicely done, Tapion.” you praise.“I did have fairly decent instruction on it.” he replies, a quick arm-thrust aimed at your torso dodged only thanks to your quick thinking. “You and Pantea have helped me substantially, as has Izumi.”“Heh, you’ve helped me quite a bit yourself.” The two of you keep at it. You’re getting close to Mount Rumble, you can feel it. But you’ll need to pick up the pace if you want to make sure Tapion’s really gotten the most out of the Kaio-ken.>Roll me 2d20, best of three! DC is 12 for both!
Rolled 19, 9 = 28 (2d20)>>3514233
Rolled 9, 2 = 11 (2d20)>>3514233
Rolled 1, 8 = 9 (2d20)>>3514233
Rolled 9, 9, 16 = 34 (3d20)>>3514255>>3514258>>3514266Passed one of them! Writing...
>>3514233Blitzing around one another, you and Tapion clash again and again, the intensity ramping up. You speed up just a bit more, truly retaliating now as you get closer and closer to the mountain. You dodge one more of Tapion’s blows, and then return with a fierce roundhouse kick that knocks him to the ground... one that hits a little too hard. Oops. “Ah! Tapion! Tapion, are you okay?”“B-been through worse... ow...” He gets up as you approach, dusting himself off. “Your strength is the real deal, Gohan. I’m impressed.”“Heh, okay, enough with the sparring. I think you’ve got the hang of this.” You help him up. You then point out where Mount Rumble is. “Destination’s right over there. So, how about we race the rest of the way? You can use the Kaio-ken if you want.”“That sounds fair.” Tapion nods, powering up. “Kaio-ken!”Bolting to the sky once more, you and Tapion charge ahead... and while initially you had the lead, you find yourself losing ground to Tapion. You try to pick up speed again, but before you can... it’s too late. Tapion touches down on the mountaintop just a few moments before you do. Minotia and Zarid arrive just a short while after the two of you. “Wow, that was awesome! You’re the best, bro!”“Heh, nice work, Tapion. You really have mastered the Kaio-ken.” You approach the pillar where the Sacred Crown resides. “So, you place this upon your head, and dodge the lightning bolts it summons. Keep that up until it feels almost natural, and you’re able to let your Ki surge with this kind of speed.”“Very well.” Tapion picks it up, and you step away to give him space.“Good luck, Tapion!” Minotia shouts.(cont.)
>>3514379“A little... different from what I was expecting.” Zarid tells you. “So, does it give some sort of magical boost through accomplishing this task, or does it unlock the ability from within?”“I think it’s a little of both, if I’m remembering correctly.” you reply, watching carefully as Tapion begins to dodge the bolts of lightning.“What about that other form, the one with the golden hair and everything?” Zarid questions.“Ah, that’s a bit more exclusive. It’s something unique to us Saiyans, a legendary power awakened through intense focus and emotion, one that focuses our chakras in a way that goes beyond even the power of the Kaio-ken. But, through the Raio-ken, mom and others have unlocked another kind of ability that functions a bit like it. My friends Videl and Pantea, and my teacher Chuu Lee, in addition to mom, all have it. I think you might’ve seen Chuu Lee and Videl use it during the Tournament.”“Hmm... guess that’s gonna be a long ways off before I can do something like that.” He then smiles and laughs. “There were a few people that actually managed things like this in Penguin Village. I remember seeing a man transform into some kind of robotic counterpart face off against Arale in a sparring match, and then this alien-like monster with this weird head. Reminded me of some kind of movie monster.”>A. Alien-like monster? What exactly was it?>B. Is it just Penguin Village that’s like that, or are there other places out there where strong fighters exist?>C. What’s your home like, Zarid? You seem fairly dedicated as a martial artist, anyone else from there follow that kind of path?>D. Something else?
>>3514385>B. Is it just Penguin Village that’s like that, or are there other places out there where strong fighters exist?>Just what IS that place anyway?
>>3514385>A, B, C.
>>3514385>C. What’s your home like, Zarid? You seem fairly dedicated as a martial artist, anyone else from there follow that kind of path?
>>3514385“So, is it just Penguin Village that’s like that this, or are there other places in your world where strong fighters exist? What even IS Penguin Village anyway?”“Gohan, I’m going to be honest with you. I have no clue. It seems even more absurd to me than it probably does to you. I saw hills with eyes. Hills. With. Eyes. Sachie was barely phased by all of it, but it is an odd town over near Japan.” he responds comically seriously. “And martial arts’re certainly nowhere near as common as over here, that’s for sure.” Zarid rubs his chin. “Hmm... there are still a few. Sachie is actually part of a clan of powerful ninja, for example. I know of some in America and the rest of Asia, and some in Europe and-” Zarid stops himself. “Ah. Um. Different nations and continents. Our world isn’t anywhere near as united as yours. Lot more squabbling... and honestly, as interesting as some places are back home, your world seems more... peaceful.”You sigh loudly. “Yeah, except for every few years when some crazed monster or alien or demon pops up trying to conquer or destroy us all. Like what happened with Hirudegarn just recently, and why my sister and mom went off-world.”“That is fair. Still, I do hope I can come here more often.”“Say, what about your own home, Zarid? What’s it like? You’re quite the dedicated martial artist yourself, is there anyone else like that back in your home town?”“I used to have an old teacher before Master Tsun, a man who trained my father before he passed on.” Zadir crosses his arms, looking down. “He... left some time ago, but he did have a few pupils who took up his teachings. I’m still one of the best in our village, though, in spite of my youth, and I’ve only gotten stronger. It’s one reason I was chosen by aliens to save their world from a gang of bandits, alongside Sachie. It was... in exchange for a sapling set to help feed them.” Zarid smiles softly. “I truly do owe Sachie for her help in saving my village. It went from a withering desert to a paradise thanks to her.”Tapion finally finishes up his training with the Sacred Crown, with it flying off his head and back on to the pillar. A blue, sparking aura surrounds him as he looks over to you. all He’s done it. “WOW! Me next! ME NEXT!” Minotia calls out.“I think you should wait on it, at least until you’re sure you have the Kaio-ken under your belt.” Tapion tells his brother. He then tests out his newfound speed, bolting around the area. He lands next to you, powering down. “Thank you, Gohan. This is a tremendous help.”“Aw it’s nothing, just paying you back for all the help you’ve given me. Let’s call each other even.”You then get a telepathic contact from... auntie Trip? ‘Gohan, are you available at the moment?’>A. Sure, what’s up?>B. Kinda am, can you check back another time?>C. Minotia, you want help learning the Kaio-ken too?>D. Something else?
>>3514560Kinda am what?
>>3514560>A. Sure, what’s up?
>>3514576ughsupposed to be "kinda busy"
>>3514560‘Sure, what’s up?’ you respond to her telepathically.‘Piccolo has been working with my assistants to repair some parts of the Lookout, but we’ve started experiencing some issues with it. The Hyperbolic Time Chamber, the Pendulum Room, and a number of other parts have been experiencing... issues.’‘What kind of issues?’ you look away, raising an eyebrow.‘The Pendulum Room’s simulations have been appearing in places where they are not supposed to, and Piccolo keeps needing to safeguard Mr. Popo while he tries to get the Time Chamber’s engines functional again. Worse... we keep seeing, well... “you” show up.’You shake your head. “...Um, guys, just a moment.” You walk off and mumble out a “what” as you telepathically respond to her with it.‘We are not entirely sure either. We believe it has something to do with your last usage of the Pendulum Room. If you are not too busy, could you come down here and help with this?’>A. Of course! I’ll be right there, just gotta let Tapion, Minotia, and Zarid know>B. Just me? Weren’t you and Yurin there last time too?>C. Can Tapion, Minotia, and my friend Zarid come along to help?>D. Something else?
>>3514704>B. Just me? Weren’t you and Yurin there last time too?>D. Wait, what if YOU are a simulation? How do we deal with that?>C. Can Tapion, Minotia, and my friend Zarid come along to help?
>>3514704>>3514709>D. Hold on a sec, guys, just asking God if she's real.>Hey Trip, what if this is ALL a simulation run for the entertainment of computer-bound weebs?
>>3514704>A. Of course! I’ll be right there, just gotta let Tapion, Minotia, and Zarid know
On second thought, I'll just go with C
>>3514704Well, that’s... bizarre. And ominous. But you definitely should check this out. ‘I’ll be there soon,Trip. Oh! But would it be okay if Tapion, Minotia, and my friend Zarid tag along? Kinda helping them with a few things, and I don’t wanna just leave them in the middle of this.’‘That... is acceptable. Just be wary, why these are showing up is unknown at this time.’Sweet. “OKAY!” You turn back around, grinning at the three. “Tapion, Minotia, Zarid, you guys up for helping out a Kami?”Tapion tilts his head. “Your planet’s Guardian requested your assistance, did she?”“Yeah. Something weird’s going on up in the Lookout. How about you, Zarid? You up for helping out a God?”To your surprise, he nods immediately. “I managed to help my world’s Kami once before. Just show me the way.”“Awesome! All right guys, let’s go!”>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST KAI #16... 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 continue tomorrow starting ~4:30 pm PST. I’ll be around for a bit for some questions if y’all have any. Did y’all have fun?
>>3514779>Just show me the way.”Click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click!
I'm excited for tomorrow!
>>3514779Fun times Kato, thanks for running!
>>3514779Are we about to have an overlapping of Gohans through time?!A Chrono Cross?!
>>3514784Glad to hear.>>3514790Thanks for playing!>>3515566We'll see about that. I can promise this though, there will be no Korchas.And okay, we are back!>>3514779Arriving at the Lookout, the place still under repairs but at least lacking the large holes Hirudegarn smashed through it, Trip greets you all with Yosei by her side. “I thank you for coming to assist, Gohan. And thank you all for coming with him.”You and your friends all nod in response. “Hey, it’s no problem. Where do you need us?”“We have a couple places that require your assistance. The Hyperbolic Time Chamber, the Pendulum Room, and and the Lookout’s Vault.” she explains, walking you all to the main building. “These are the places we have had the most trouble with.”“We’re especially worried about the Vault, it has several objects we have tried to store for safekeeping.” the fairy girl explains, Zarid looking at her curiously while Minotia and Tapion seem... oddly familiar with her, like they’ve seen someone like her before. “That we’ve seen things pop up in there is especially worrying.”>A. Well, Pendulum Room is probably the best bet, let’s head there>B. Hyperbolic Time Chamber, we can help Mr. Piccolo and Mr. Popo first>C. I’m gonna have to agree with Yosei, the Vault sounds like the place we should start with>D. Something else?
>>3516158>C. I’m gonna have to agree with Yosei, the Vault sounds like the place we should start with
>>3516158>C.>D. "Maybe Baba can contact the Kami's of Old and ask them for repair advice? Didn't they build all of this into the Lookout?" I know they're in the Divine Sage Realm but Gohan doesn't
>>3516172Maybe the Lookout hasn't been getting enough donations to afford Baba's services on top of the renovations?
>>3516179Wait a second, I think I have something that might just work!
>>3516158>Minotia and Tapion seem... oddly familiar with her, like they’ve seen someone like her before.I see what you did thar.Wonder if they met any sword spirits or any Twilight Royalty.
>>3516158>>C. I’m gonna have to agree with Yosei, the Vault sounds like the place we should start with
>>3516158“I’m gonna have to agree with Yosei here, the Vault sounds like it’d be the best place to start with.”“Very well. This way.” Trip leads you all into the Lookout’s inner chambers. You arrive at the entrance to a larger room, Trip placing her hand on a panel outside it and letting out a jolt of Ki that gets the doors to open. “I must ask that you be especially careful in here. There are a number of artifacts we have had to secure in here that are either rather valuable, or have been sealed away for good reason. Tread carefully.”“We will. Should be done with this soon.” you tell her confidently, heading in with everyone. The door closes behind you, the white marble room filled with curious trinkets and packages. Some set as if almost on display, some bound and covered in specialized charms. You even see a few larger texts, ones that give off an ominous aura.“Well, this is only the third most eerie museum I’ve been in.” Zarid remarks. “Then again, the second one had some kid with strange mirror illusions and the first had a guy who made paintings come to life.”“Huh. Those are some odd types of magic.” you remark.“Weren’t too much trouble in the end. Hopefully this will be even less so.”You nod, then look to Tapion. “Say, did your Kami have things like this?”“His temple did possess a number of magical artifacts and loads of research he’d been conducting before Hirudegarn rampaged across our world.”“Yeah, like that spooky mask, or that weather-controlling rod, or that i-” Minotia stops himself as he notices something in the distance. “...imp.” he finishes. Minotia points forward and asks, “You guys see that, right?”You look where he’s pointing, and spot a small, blurry image. A shape that’s not quite taken form, but has a rough outline of a small, imp-like figure. Sort of reminds you of Pilaf, but Pilaf photographed like he were some elusive cryptid.>A. All right, jump it!>B. Better keep your distance and observe, doesn’t seem like it quite knows you’re there yet>C. Call out to it, see if it’s friendly>D. Something else?
>>3516324>B. >D. Have everyone hide their power levels if they can.
>>3516324>>3516329Supporting, this is a sneaking mission, and you have your lucky headband on!
>>3516324When we do get into a fight, I know the perfect music...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yGP8n5VgSmQHey, and Chrono Trigger imps count as 'fiends', does that mean Light magic, Buddha magic, and Tapion's ocarina are more effective on them?
>>3516344The blood of a christian man would be the best.
>>3516324>>C. Call out to it, see if it’s friendly
dang, Peppa didn't have desert-wear.
>>3516324https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8kG99dkM7eAYou telepathically tell everyone to lower their Ki as you observe the blurry figure. It sort of... shambles around the place, slowly starting to take proper form. It is something like Pilaf, though not... wait. Wait you’ve seen this person before. “Hrrrrggghh...”“What... is that?” Zarid asks quietly.“Ka... mi... will... per... ish...”“Garlic Jr. The son of a candidate for our world’s Guardian, one with an evil heart, who bore a grudge against our previous Kami for it.” You shake your head. “He died a long time ago, before I was even born.” The figure... more of a phantom, really, shambles aimlessly. He... doesn’t really seem to be aware of his surroundings, though given how he’s able to feel around, he is clearly looking for something. And sensing his Ki, he doesn’t seem all... there to begin with, fluctuating and spiking, sort of like-“Gohan, over there!” Minotia points out next.Garlic Jr. turns his attention to where Minotia was pointing, and... it’s... you. You in the very same outfit you wore for the Tournament. You... the other you, that is, swoop down at Garlic Jr. and... kick him away from a platform with one of those ominous books on it. The other you then bolts away and... stomps down on Garlic Jr, finishing him off brutally.Zarid and Minotia both flinch, but you and Tapion keep your eyes focused on the figure. The other you starts to move away, heading deeper into the room.>A. After him!>B. Better report this to Trip immediately>C. Call out to him, see how he reacts>D. Something else?
>>3516474>A. After him!
>>3516474>A.>D. Check on the Garlic Jr. phantom corpse as you go by.

>>3516474“After him!” you call out, running forward with everyone. As he begins to walk forward, you sense around. It... DOES feel like you. And the phantom that was Garlic Jr. has all but disappeared, just a remnant of what was there. Ugh, what even IS this? You look forward again... and he’s noticed you.He looks around at all four of you... hand moving towards his blade. The other Gohan then picks up the pace, running deeper into the Vault. Everyone tries chasing after him, but he surprises you all by spinning around and thrusting his palm forward, letting out a powerful Kiai. You’re knocked back along with Zarid, Minotia managing to avoid it and Tapion actually reflecting part of it back with his barrier. The other Gohan draws his sword and takes a slash at Tapion, who brings his own out to guard against the slash.“You, what are you?” Tapion asks.He glances over at you and gives you an uncomfortable glare. Silently, he pushes back against Tapion and tries to head off again. He... he definitely has your Ki. Wow it feels weird sensing someone else with it. It is, as far as you can tell, “you.”>A. All right, that’s it, head him off!>B. Trip, we’ve found that other me, but we need some backup!>C. Calmly try to talk with the other Gohan, don’t antagonize him any further>D. Something else?

>>3516675No, A won.
>>3516676Pardon me, I cann't even read numbers today.
>>2939518>Gohan so far I'd like to see him not really fall into some of the traps his uncle fell into, and be able to set out on his own and take charge when needed. Wouldn't mind if his hobby outside fighting ends up as Game Design or something. Was he disappointed in Metroid Other M too?Y'know what, pursuing a career in Game Design sounds pretty good right now.
>>3516602You power up. All right, if he wants to do things the hard way, you’ll do things the hard way. Dashing ahead of Tapion, you try to block him off, only to get smacked aside as he heads forward as well. Tapion tries to follow forth, but the other Gohan clashes blades with him once more, and manages to use his greater strength to force Tapion back, even firing off a Geist Magnum at him that the warrior barely avoids.Minotia however cleverly uses the distraction you and his brother provide to form up his own barrier as he launches forward, crashing into the other Gohan. He’s able to take the hit, but is still forced back slightly. Zarid helps you up. “Still only in the third spot for the most eerie museum-type place I’ve been to, but it’s quickly encroaching on second.”As the other Gohan uses a Spirit Ball to try and barrage Minotia’s barrier, he sees you standing again, and again he glares at you silently. In one final thrust, he smashes the sphere of Ki into Minotia’s barrier and heads off. The four of you try to chase after him again, but... he’s gone. Vanished.Your palm smacks into your face. “Great. Just great. Get shown up by a copy of myself. Juuuuust great!”“Something is off about him.” Tapion comments. “He fights viciously, but he didn’t attempt to land any fatal blows on us. Wound, certainly, but only to facilitate his escape.”“Where’d he even run off to?” Minotia asks. “This place doesn’t have another exit as far as I can tell.”You sigh loudly and contact Trip, letting her know what happened. As you get to the Vault’s entrance again, she’s there waiting, and gives you a pat on the head. “It is okay, Gohan. We have a better idea on what this other you is capable of, at the very least.”“Do we, though?” Zarid questions. “This seems like it’s only left us with more questions than answers.”“I have an idea, but it will require making sure the Pendulum Room is fully operational. But at the same time, we can’t have him going after Piccolo and Mr. Popo while they try to repair the Hyperbolic Time Chamber’s engines...”>A. Pendulum Room. I’ll do what I can to try and lure him there>B. Better help them first, can’t risk the Time Chamber getting damaged>C. We should probably contact someone else to help too, this could get out of hand>D. Something else?
>>3516743>D. Please don't patronize me, ma'am. I've had enough of headpats from my classmates.>B. Better help them first, can’t risk the Time Chamber getting damagedTapion and Minotia have things well in hand when it comes to the Copy.
>>3516743>B. Better help them first, can’t risk the Time Chamber getting damagedPlaying defense for the repair crew seems the way to go, until they can secure the pendulum room as well.
>>3516743“It’d be better to help Mr. Piccolo and Mr. Popo first, we can’t risk the Time Chamber getting damaged by that other me or whatever else.” You look to your friends. “What do you guys say?”“Heh, I guess I kinda signed up for this. I’m gonna see it through.” Zarid responds confidently.“We do need a plan, though. Is there some way to keep that other Gohan from disappearing like he did before?” Tapion asks.“Piccolo knows of a way. If you can keep him busy, I am sure that Piccolo will be able to keep him from vanishing again.” Trip replies. “Best of luck.”You’re guided to the Time Chamber, entering it and looking out into the massive white void beyond the initial building. “Gohan, over here.” Piccolo’s voice calls out to you. You’re guided to the large hourglasses flanking the building, seeing Mr. Popo working on them as Piccolo stands near him. “Trip filled me in. These are critical to the function of the Hyperbolic Time Chamber. We need to make sure they’re in proper working order.” Piccolo nods his head to the other one... which is cracked and leaking.“W-woah!” Zarid calls out as he steps into the void. “Anyone else feeling heavier in here? Is it just me?”“It is not just you.” Tapion affirms. “The gravity in here is greater than outside this chamber.”“Keep your focus. We need to be on-guard. No telling what could be waiting for us.” Piccolo states.And as if on cue, you feel something approach... something with substantially high strength. Another blurry figure shambles forward in the distance. A tall one, with large horns. Majin Ozotto? No... no, not quite. Different. Almost... wait. That looks a bit like... Kuriza, but it’s... oh no.>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST KAI #16... Paused.>Twitter account is @KatoQm, will have status updates there>Got some questions for the QM? Suggestions?

I’ll be around for a bit for some questions if y’all have any. Did y’all have fun?
>>3516837Uh-oh...Yeah, this was cool. What do y'all think of Gohan setting down his sword/MC spot to get into designing games? He has shown some ambition towards that. Not now, but like, come Super times.
>>3516837Oh crap. Gohan, don't fail us now!Getting pretty exciting, Kato! Thanks for running!

He may not be much stronger than you, but you know he’s plenty ruthless. Tapion and Minotia draw their swords as King Cold looks over the whole group. He grins maliciously, starting to walk forward. You notice some other figures move in behind him... a tall one that you almost mistake for Vegeta, but with a goatee and PTO armor with a cape, and a figure that looks like your father, but with darker skin and with PTO armor as well. Finally, a dragon-like humanoid takes form as well, massive. Not sure you recognize him.“More phantoms?” Tapion questions.“Simulations of King Cold, King Vegeta, and Turles.” Piccolo replies. “And Bongo, the mutant spawn of an evil Namekian.”Zarid looks to you. “What’s the plan, Gohan?”>A. I’ll face King Cold, you guys go after the one you think you can hold off!>B. Better take the weakest one down first, before we start to get overwhelmed>C. Everybody keep back, we just need to hold them off while Mr. Popo works on the repairs>D. Something else?
>>3519248"Wait, did all of these people come from scenarios we picked out?" >That means Ledgic, Ozotto, and everyone we've faced is...Oh Hero of Justice Hatchiyak, save us like we saved your people!>D. "We take them on together as a team."
>>3519248C, but also keep them pushed back and boxed in together, a defense that keeps them away.
>>3519248>And it may be good to have an idea on where y'all want Gohan to go, going forward.https://dragonball.fandom.com/wiki/Groundbreaking_ScienceI want a whole series of books. All on Audible.
>>3519248>C. Everybody keep back, we just need to hold them off while Mr. Popo works on the repairs
>>3519248Gohan needs to go forward? Is there somewhere else his character arc could go?
>>3519287We have a much larger cast of capable ki users, someone might get to that before Gohan gets the skills to do it himself.
>>3519248“Everyone, keep back! We need to hold them off while Mr. Popo finishes up those repairs! Stick together!” You leap over to Popo, taking up a defensive stance, Zarid, Tapion, and Minotia all gathered around you. Piccolo stands above you all, focused, as the foes start to move in closer and closer. Turles makes the first move, his Ki skyrocketing as his hair stands up... ah. Ah right. He can do that.“HRRRAAAAH!” the Saiyan, now Super Saiyan, yells out, bolting towards you. You block the hit, forcing him back, as Tapion and Minotia blocking King Cold and Bongo as they attempt to slash at them, Tapion even managing to slice off Bongo’s arm... only for it to regenerate, leaving a silvery replacement. King Vegeta takes a shot at the last of your group, but Zarid ducks under him and brings one arm down, knuckles nearly touching the ground, before swinging it up with tremendous force, smashing King Vegeta in the gut hard enough to force him back. Piccolo then assists you all with a powerful Kiai that forces all your foes away for a moment.They try to regroup, only for you to hear footsteps. Someone comes running at them from the other side of the Time Chamber, and in a flash, smashes his fist into Bongo’s side, tearing through his mechanical innards. His hand moves to his sword as he begins to power up. It’s... the other you.>A. Let him deal with this, just make sure Popo’s safe!>B. Back him up, take these guys down while they’re distracted!>C.

>>3519452https://youtu.be/ZmZLgTb6OTYYou leap into action, transforming as your counterpart transforms as well, the two of you knocking away Turles and King Vegeta. With your sword drawn, you look to him, then glance at Cold. He glares at you angrily, and King Cold uses that as an opportunity to get the both of you while you’re distracted, attempting to gore you with his horns. You and your counterpart dodge the horns, but he’s able to get in a cheap shot, smashing his fists into your faces as he rushes past.The two of you are able to recover from the blow, though. The other Gohan looks at you again, not as angrily, and then at King Cold. He nods. You grin a little, and the two of you ready your swords as King Cold turns around. In a flash, like bolts of lightning, you and your counterpart slash through him with an X-Strike.King Cold is stunned, looking down at himself as he notices his wound at his waist. His mechanical parts crackle and break, and before he falls he makes one last defiant attempt on your life, raising his hand over his head and forming a ball of Ki above a finger.... only for Tapion to come in and deliver the killing blow, the body of the phantom returning to the blurry form it appeared as, until finally vanishing.Minotia manages to take Bongo down with Ki-boosted sword beams, keeping at it until the villainous echo can’t regenerate anymore, and finishing it off by pulling his sword back and thrusting a palm forward, blasting the remaining bits to dust. Piccolo takes down Turles by surrounding him with Ki blasts and then having them converge on the sinister Super Saiyan, declaring, “HELLZONE GRENADE!”Finally, you notice Zarid still holding his own against King Vegeta, even gaining the upper hand against the Saiyan monarch, dodging each blow expertly and countering and parrying when he sees the chance.>A. Help Zarid out!>B. So, um, other me. We good?>C. Check up on Popo again, just to be safe>D. Something else?

>>3519675You head off towards Mr. Popo while looking towards Zarid. The two of you make eye contact, and you give him a thumb’s up. “You’ve got this, Zarid!”“Thanks, Gohan!” he replies, dodging a Ki blast from King Vegeta. They keep at it, clashing, blow after blow, the larger Saiyan getting more and more frustrated against his opponent. Every punch and chop countered with an elbow strike or a throw, every kick and knee strike dodged and parried. It’s taking a bit out of him to really keep up, but Zarid’s giving this his all. He leaps in the air and spins his body around as King Vegeta tries to fire off a Galick Gun at him, striking the Saiyan in the back of the neck with a Ki-boosted chop. Zarid lands as the Saiyan stumbles forward, bringing his hands above his head, crossing his arms as Ki builds up in his palms. “This is it! HRRAAAH!” He thrusts both hands down and lets out an energy blast from the ground, traveling out like a genuine wave, overwhelming King Vegeta.You get to Mr. Popo, and not a moment too soon, as a figure looms over him. A blone-haired man with blue skin, seems to be someone from Brench, with a blade of energy coming out of his arm. You kick him aside and follow it up by charging energy through your hand. He tries to slash down at you with the Ki blade, but you catch it with your hand, smashing through it to his surprise and grabbing him as flaming energy flows around your palm. “BURNING! CRUUUSHEEERRR!” You lift him above your head. “HEAT END!” In an eruption of power, the phantom of the fighter is finished off. Whew. That was a close one.Looking back, you see the other Gohan head off again.>A. All right. I’m not gonna bother you, but thanks for the help back there>B. Hey! Hey wait, I still need to know, what are you?>C. Contact Trip and see if the Pendulum Room is active at this time, maybe there’s way to stop this...>D. Something else?

>>3519882You sigh and just nod. “All right, all right, I’m not gonna bother you. But, thanks for the help back there.” He... walks off without saying a word, Tapion, Minotia, and Zarid rejoining you.Piccolo checks with Mr. Popo, who’s finally finished with the repairs to the Hyperbolic Time Chamber’s engines, then looks to you. “Nice work, Gohan. Saved us a lot of trouble there.”“Heh, no problem, Mr. Piccolo. Bet you could’ve handled it yourself, though.”“Still minimized the risks to the repairs of the engine. Thank you, all of you, for the help.”“Hoooh. That guy was tough.” Zarid exhales in exhaustion. “One wrong move and I could’ve been in serious trouble.”“You did handle yourself quite well. Your skills are sharp.” Tapion praises.“Hmm... just one thing on my mind.” you comment aloud, then contract Trip. ‘We’ve faced off against more foes from the past, and that other me showed up again. Has the Pendulum Room been active at this time? What’s the deal over there?’‘Just a moment.’ she replies as she goes to check. ‘...So that’s the issue. I believe I have found what is wrong.’“Ah, finally some good news.” you speak aloud. “What’s the issue, Trip?”‘A lingering malicious Ki seems to have taken up residence inside one of the simulations, and it is attempting to break free. It seems to be trying to activate a number of scenarios to build up its strength, using this chaos to brute force its way out.’“Hmnh. If I had to guess, none of these can actually leave the Lookout, not until it’s strong enough to manifest completely.” Piccolo speculates. “Do you know where it’s hiding?”‘I have some ideas. There are five points it keeps trying to activate, and seems there were more before you dealt with them. If we can shut them all down, we can be rid of this for good.’Minotia holds his sword up high. “All right, then what’re we waiting for? Let’s finish this!”>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST KAI #16...

>>3519954Fun times Kato, nice to see everyone get their own moments, and was cool that we got that double X-Strike. Thanks for running!
>>3519980>that double X-Strike.There was a double X-Strike?
None of these phantoms spoke...Huh. Wonder if that's a clue.
>>3521009>Turles makes the first move, his Ki skyrocketing as his hair stands up... ah. Ah right. He can do that. “HRRRAAAAH!” the Saiyan, now Super Saiyan, yells out, bolting towards you.
They didn't speak words, sorry.
>>3521027>“Ka... mi... will... per... ish...”oh wait, Garlic did. Nevermind.
>>3521018>>3521033Rather than unable to speak, they aren't in the headspace to talk things out. The maliciousness powering them translates to being all about destruction, even Dark Gohan, although he apparently redirects it against the others.
>>3521055If left unchecked, Dark Gohan might run out of former foes/outlets and go tap into his inner perviness with Trip.
>>3519980Thanks for playing, and glad to hear!>>3521009>>3521018>>3521027>>3521033>>3521055Interesting observations. Y'all are getting close.Anyway, we are back!>>3519954You reach the Pendulum Room with everyone else, Piccolo opting to look through a few more areas first. Trip, Yosei, and the Space Lemurs all greet you as the Earth’s Guardian explains what she’s found out. “The longer that this keeps up, the harder it will be to stabilize in the long run.” She then shows you all inside. “These are the five scenarios that we have tracked this presence down to: The fight against the enhanced Artificial Human 13 on planet Brench, the Aza’s plot with the Black Water Mist, the encounter with the Legendary Super Saiyan fighting Mira, a bit before Majin Ozotto’s Tournament, and... an encounter with Dr. Raichi and Hatchiyak from another time.”“There may be a sixth one as well, but we haven’t been able to find any clues to it.” Sugoro states. “Still, keep your eyes peeled for anything off about the simulated periods in time.”“That just leaves a question. Which one do you believe you all should begin with?”>A. Let’s start with the easiest, against Aza>B. Brench and 13 sounds like a good place to start>C. Mira and Broly facing off... if this thing gets hold of either of them, that’s some really bad news>D. Dr. Raichi and Hatchiyak, should get one of the more difficult ones out of the way first>E. Majin Ozotto. I’m ready to face him again>F. Something else?
>>3521335Face the hardest one and work our way down.Also ask someone to go get senzus from Korin, please and thank you.
>>3521335Pssst... is the sixth scenario Hirudegarn's attack on Konats? You can tell me Kato, I'll keep it a secret.
>Ava's plot....This is the revenge of the coconut worm, isn't it.
>>3521335>D. Dr. Raichi and Hatchiyak, should get one of the more difficult ones out of the way first>F. What do we do about the other me? He was actually helpful... Maybe not all bad?
Next A, D, or E. calls it then.
>>3521335>E. Majin Ozotto. I’m ready to face him again
>>3521540That works. The strongest threat may be backed up by others, but going after the weakest leaves more danger in the meantime.
>>3521335“Majin Ozotto. I’m ready to face him again.” you tell Trip confidently. You look over to Tapion, Minotia, and Zarid. “Guys, this may be a tough one, but I’ve got a way to deal with him. I’ve faced him before, if only briefly, so I know what kinds of tricks he’ll be pulling.”“Understood, Gohan. We’re with you.” Tapion nods.“Very well. Be careful, everyone. If things get too much for you to handle the simulation should end.” Trip adds, guiding you all into the room. “Best of luck.”“We’ll be back before you know it!” you tell her confidently. “With Ozotto beat and one of these scenarios down!”She smiles, and in a flash of light you and your friends are brought to a large, circular ring. Floating in the middle of it... Majin Ozotto. He chuckles softly. “Well now, do we have some new warriors who wish to face me in combat? The Tournament is still a couple days away.” His tail sways as he turns his head. “Hmm... one of you DOES seem rather familiar, though. Ah, but I have definitely not seen the three of you before. You-” He pauses as he looks to Tapion, more specifically, the sword on his back. “...you have something especially interesting.”“Sorry Ozotto, it’s not yours to take.” you tell him, stepping forward.“Hmm... your mind’s rather sealed off. Just like hers.” Ozotto looks you over curiously. “Do you intend to face me alone, boy?”>A. Actually, was wondering if you’d be fine with two against one (try to call for the other Gohan)>B. I’ll beat you fair, one on one>C. Preemptive strike, his guard’s down!>D. Something else?
>>3521649>B. I’ll beat you fair, one on one

>>3521649>B.>D.Have everyone else keep an eye out for anything unusual
>>3521663Isn't it more of a Biozotto?
>>3521649>"Face you? No, I wanna kill you."
>>3521649>>B. I’ll beat you fair, one on one
>>3521649“I’ll beat you fair and square, one on one.” You take your stance, powering up slightly. “I’ve got plenty of techniques you’d probably want to see. Ones they’ve not had a chance to witness yet.”Ozotto grins and laughs. “Well well, you certainly are confident, boy.” He lowers his arms, his aura surging up around him. “You think you can beat me?”“I know I can kill you.” The two of you stare each other down, but telepathically, you contact everyone else. ‘Keep your guard up. Last time I fought him he had part of his soul put into an organic body. If you feel it start to power up, get to it and take it down. And keep watch for anything else suspicious.’Tapion nods. ‘Understood. Good luck, Gohan.’“Let the games begin!” Ozotto declares.>A. Time for Super Saiyan!>B. Super Saiyan 2, test your limits with it!>C. Kaio-ken! Show Tapion and Minotia how you can handle it in a real fight>D. Focus on dodging, try to wear him out>E.

>>3521746You power up further, transforming into Super Saiyan and, tauntingly, motioning for Ozotto to come at you. In a flash, the massive Majin bolts towards you, unleashing a flurry of blows... that you dodge with expert skill, almost making it look easy. You pay careful attention to his tail as well, keeping your body well away from it.“You’re quite a bit stronger than the others I felt. Only one that came close was that little guest I sensed the other day.” Ozotto compliments, putting more and more power into each strike.“Is that so?” You dodge under a kick from one of his massive legs and twist your body around as his tail bolts toward your torso. His claws slash at you in an attempt to grapple, only for you to flip up and over him, smacking him on the top of his head and pushing yourself off, landing some distance away.“Yes. He was quite a treat. Though I can tell that this isn’t your full strength, is it?” the monster questions, his body changing shape... and turning into Vegeta. He pulls his hand back and charges an energy attack, then thrusts it forward like a one-handed Kamehameha. You deflect it into the sky, Ozotto changing shape again, now taking the form of... dad. “You know, I think I know what you remind me of. Son Goku’s little boy. That red-haired scamp. Ah, such an innocent child.”“Yeah. I bet I do.” You bring up a defensive stance again.Ozotto-Goku squints. “...Curious. I thought something like this may be going on. Come to stop me from the future, boy?”You smirk. “I’m here to make you wish you stayed in that bucket.”(cont.)
>>3521875He moves to you again, this time trying out some of your father’s skills against you, more nimble and calculated in his attacks. Heh, almost does feel like your last sparring session with dad. To try and trip you up, Ozotto changes back briefly and nearly grabs your arm with his tail, only for you to parry it with a quick Ki blast and dodge another incoming strike. Slowly but surely, Ozotto starts to lose what advantage he may have had initially. “You... you certainly are more formidable than I’d expected, I’ll give you that.”“Really? Because what you said before is right. This isn’t my full strength. Not even half of it.”His Ki seems to... pulse for a moment, Ozotto looking at you in surprise as it does. He then quickly darts his eyes around, almost like he feels something familiar. “...Well, Gohan, I do hope you’re not doing this just so you can stop playing second fiddle to your sister.”Oh boy here we go. “Something you know that I don’t?”His body... fidgets slightly. “Something I remember, boy. You’re not very proactive. You’re... a... coward... and...” You feel his strength rise, just a little more than it was before. “Rgh...”“Gohan, there’s something else here!” Tapion calls out, his sword drawn, Minotia and Zarid standing ready with him.>A. Try to draw it out intentionally>B. Better finish this quickly. Show Ozotto Super Saiyan 2!>C. Start countering his attacks, he’s tiring out and going to get desperate soon>D. Defense is the name of the game, dodge and don’t let up>E. Energy attack!>F. Something else?
>>3521878>B. Better finish this quickly. Show Ozotto Super Saiyan 2!I decline to fuck with whatever he's chanelling, turning into or whatever.
>>3521878>F. Yes, please try to play therapist to me with your entirely alien set of ethics.>C. Start countering his attacks, he’s tiring out and going to get desperate soon

>>3521878https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M23NRARoRkQYeah, not gonna even pretend to care about him playing therapist. You power up further, letting your Ki skyrocket as your hair spikes up more. “Okay Ozotto. Game’s over. This is the power BEYOND Super Saiyan! HRRAAAAH!” You transform into Super Saiyan 2 and launch at him so quickly he doesn’t even see you coming, with your fist slamming into his gut with enough force to send him back. Ozotto tries to counter, throwing some multicolored Ki blasts from his tail, but your speed’s substantially beyond his. Ozotto then tries to unleash a massive Explosive Wave, but before he can you kick him in the back of the head and knock him down.“You... s-stand... still...!” Ozotto yells out, his body morphing into several different people, each trying out a technique of their own against you. Lapis letting out a blast of Shadow magic, Krillin using the Destructo Disk, Launch letting loose a barrage of Ki blasts, uncle Raditz with his Double Sunday technique, and each one either missing you completely or being deflected with ease. He finally tries to trip you up by shapeshifting his body into mom, but you kick him back down before he gets a chance to show off again.“You’re through, Majin Ozotto! RAIO-KEN!” Bolting around him at even greater speeds, you let loose a relentless series of blows. Even with the boost in his strength, you’re simply too quick for him to get a good counterattack in. Finally, you get some distance and build up momentum... “SHIIIIIINE...” and launch down at him with full force! “SPAAAAAAAAAARRRK!”He looks up in disbelief as you slam down into, and THROUGH him, coming to a stop a short distance away. You look back, the demon torn in two... but with something else standing beside him. A shadowy figure, blurry, just like the phantoms from before. Ozotto... looks oddly content, smiling even. “...So we meet again, if only briefly. Carry my grudge. Old... fr...”“Gohan, that’s it!” Tapion calls out, rushing forward. He’s able to get it to back away, but in doing so it blasts him back in retaliation. You try to go after it... but it vanishes. The simulated time period fades from around you.“They did it! It’s shut down completely!” Yosei cheers. “That’s one down, four to go!”You sigh and power down. “But looks like we saw a glimpse of whatever’s doing this. And boy does it not seem friendly.”>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST KAI #16... 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 continue tomorrow starting ~5:30 pm PST. I’ll be around for a bit for some questions if y’all have any. Did y’all have fun?
>>3521925Yeah, this fight was cool.I wonder what the second DC was for?
>>3521925Had a really great time! Finally got that match against Ozotto, and Gohan did well.
>>3521932Nailing the other presence in some manner, I imagine.Now then, who is Ozottos "old friend"?
>>3521932>>3521943>>3521945>>3521949Glad you had fun!And the DC was for getting the jump on the new foe, though also for preventing something else with it.>>3522115SoonOkay, we are back!>>3521925Trip rubs her forehead after you explain what you saw. “I was afraid of this.”“You know what it is?” Tapion questions.“It seems to be a remnant of Ozotto’s ally, a being that invaded your world, Zarid.” Trip explains. “A Dark Phantom, a demonic force that tried to plunge multiple worlds into chaos. A Majin like Ozotto.”You and Zarid look at one another, the two of you apparently recalling hearing stories about that. “So... how do we deal with it?” you ask. “And how exactly is it still around?”“My best guess is that the Phantom’s remnants were linked with Ozotto’s, and laid dormant on the Lookout somewhere until another powerful surge in demonic energy allowed it to regain some strength. Hiding in the Pendulum Room to avoid detection... though that still may be our greatest advantage over it. If we can keep it from gaining more power, we can trap it completely and seal it away or vanquish it for good.”“Well, where should we start?” Minotia asks. “Gohan just beat that Ozotto guy.”“There are four left. Aza, Super 13, Mira and Broly, and Dr. Raichi and Hatchiyak.”>A. Aza’s plot, get that out of the way first>B. Battle on Brench against 13, shouldn’t be too hard>C. Mira and Broly helping fuel this thing would be bad news, we need to get that done>D. Dr. Raichi and Hatchiyak, they’re still a major threat>E. Maybe we should split up, teams of two>F. Something else?
>>3523363>A. Who is "Azzah" anyway?

>>3523363>D. Dr. Raichi and Hatchiyak, they’re still a major threat
Eh I'll change mine to A to break the tie.
>>3523363“Let’s get Aza’s plot out of the way first.” you tell Trip. “I’ve still got a few memories of it, personally, so I should know what to do.”“Very well.” She heads to nods. “Best of luck.”“One down, four to go!” Minotia cheers. “Ah, this is so exciting!”“Easy there. We can’t let this go to our heads.” Tapion warns.You’re teleported away in a flash of light, all of you appearing on a tower high above the clouds, on a floating fortress... with the massive form of Shenron looming over you all. Zarid seems awestruck by it, his mouth agape. The Eternal Dragon’s eyes flash red.“IT HAS BEEN DONE. FAIRWELL.”And he turns into light, the Dragon Balls spreading out into different directions. You try to sense around to where Aza and his cronies are. Feeling a spike in someone’s Ki, your eyes lock on to the source.“...OH BULLSHIT.”“PEPPA SMAAAAAASH!”You see your sister, so much younger, ram her fist into a blonde man’s face and knock him into the fortress after he collides with a pink-haired woman. Chuu Lee limps over to her, healing her wounds. Peppa then faints, tired out from almost tapping into her Super Saiyan strength, as a couple more Makyans approach. Heh, you see you and Pantea knock them down. “Okay, Aza’s this purple little imp man, he’ll be among the strongest in the area.” Sensing around, you set your sights on a sinister presence. You see Chuu Lee heading in deeper, now that her wounds are healed up.“Gohan, over there!” Tapion points out... and you see something fall down from the skies. A massive, shadowy form falls into the fortress. Right where you sense one of the strongest of the villains in there.“Okay guys, let’s move!” You all start rushing through, heading towards where you saw the thing fall. Inside the fortress, you see Chuu Lee direct your younger self and Pantea to get somewhere safe, Krillin teleporting in as well.“You’re a real thorn in our sides, Chuu Lee.” the pink-haired girl grumbles, brushing herself off. “And that brat messed up my hair!”“Though your weakness for your friends seems to be easily exploitable.” the long-haired blonde man adds.“Don’t think that trick will work again.” Chuu Lee readies herself.“Rather confident, Chuu Lee. I can see why Maple considers you a Master of the Turtle School now.” a third figure praises. Aza. “I must warn you though, there is a backup plan we had set to go just in case something like this happens.” The dragon on his shoulder laughs... as the whole fortress begins to move.>A. Everyone, attack Aza directly! You’ve got the element of surprise!>B. Let’s force the other two back, give Chuu Lee a clear shot to beat ‘em!>C. Check on where this movement originates from, you know the fortress had something done to it>D.

>>3523475>A & D.

>>3523475“There’s Aza. We need to get ‘em down, but everyone keep your eyes open. In fact...” You glance around as the fortress continues to shake. “Tapion, can you find out where the source of this is? Also, Minotia, think your ocarina and barrier will be able to keep up a barrier against folks like him?” you point to Aza.“Hah, you better believe it.” the boy affirms.“Okay, plan set? Let’s do this!”Chuu Lee clenches her fists. “Aza, what have you done?!”“You prevented us from gaining the Dragon Balls. This is our-”“WAS your backup plan!” you yell out as you leap down, letting out a Kiai that knocks away the other two, but misses Aza, who’s able to to leap out of the way of your surprise attack.“Who the hell is this?!” the blonde man yell out.“Looks like a genderflipped Maple.” the woman guesses. “Kinda cute, for a punk kid.”You blink. Um. What?“He’s a fool if he thinks he can stop us. Interesting that you avoided the Black Water Mist.” He brings his fist back. “Let’s get you to spill the beans, boy. KAGERYUKEN!”Minotia leaps in front of you and brings up his barrier, playing his ocarina, as the attack bounces off him harmlessly. And behind him, Zarid lets out a blast of energy into the floor that causes it to fracture and crack underneath the trio, and with the movement of the fortress, it breaks apart, forcing them into the air.Taking advantage of your distraction, Chuu Lee leaps after the man and woman, an elbow strike to the gut and a quick spin and kick to the back sending the man down into the hole Zarid made, followed by her using the Shotenken to uppercut the woman into ceiling. You meanwhile dash around Aza and knee him in the back of the head, grabbing him and slamming him into the ground.You and Chuu Lee get your distance to make sure you’re both aware of where all your foes are as... you feel part of the fortress accelerate, unevenly. Further, the bodies of Aza and the woman seem to... “glitch” for lack of a better term, and get slightly blurry.And there seems to be some green thing appearing near the woman.>A. Keep the pressure on Aza, the monster’s probably targeting him>B. Head over to the woman, you don’t like the looks of that thing near her>C.

>>3523617“Ohhh no you don’t!” you call out, bolting over to the woman, knocking the green thing aside.“Oof... that was... different...” the woman groans as she rubs her head, looking over at the thing you kicked away. It... looks like some kind of grub or worm, with a large shell around it. “...Now how the hell did that come back?” the lady questions.Aza meanwhile tries to attack you again, Minotia trying to defend you but getting knocked aside. Chuu Lee however blasts towards him, yelling out, “KAIO-KEN TIMES FIVE!” and knocks Aza through a wall.The woman takes a defensive stance as she faces you again. “Hey, you saved my good looks, boyo. Thanks for that. Shame you’re a bit of a punk.”“I’m a little young for you.” you remark, unamused.“Yeah well-” She stops, and squints at you. “...wait a second.”‘Um. Gohan. We may have a problem here.’ Tapion contacts you.‘What kind of problem?’‘The whole fortress... it’s been merged with some kind of creature, substantially larger than even Hirudegarn was. There should be a core in here somewhere, but every time I think I’ve tracked it down, it’s as if it moves out of my reach. I’m... also feeling something else approaching me. I may have to fight another one off.’>A. Aza needs to go down first, help Chuu Lee finish him!>B. Blast that bug before it gets to this lady again>C. Call me cute all you want, I’m taking you down!>D. Head off to help Tapion, the thing that’s merged with the fortress is probably what the Phantom is after>E.

>>3523776https://youtu.be/dtg8FtvNmY8The lady tries to get the jump on you, unleashing a barrage of kicks she follows up with an elbow strike aimed for your head that you have to put substantially more effort into avoiding than you expect, but it’s still enough that you’re able to overpower her. You knock her away with a palm strike, forcing her through a wall. “Sorry. You’re not my type. More into girls with glasses.”Chuu Lee does a double take as she hears that, but is able to keep her focus on Aza, dodging a trio of shadowy dragons that he attacks her with and bringing her hands back. “SHINKUUUU... KAMEHAMEHAAAA!”Aza’s sucked into the blast, and it bores him through the fortress, blasting him outside, Chuu Lee leaving a massive hole once the blast dissipates. Krillin, Piccolo... and Kami teleport in. You smile at her and give her a thumb’s up. “We’ll help stop this thing from the inside, you guys stop Aza! Minotia, Zarid, with me!”(cont.)
>>3523831“Wait, who’s...?” Krillin tries to ask, but you’re gone before he can finish. You head in after Tapion, finding him facing off with the blonde man from before... who’s gained a dark, sinister aura, his body glitching oddly, like Aza’s and the woman’s did before. At the same time, you see a massive, pulsing... organ of some sort, moving like a beating heart, but looking nothing like it... especially since it has a massive, eye-like structure staring down at you. Egh, it just blinked!“Gohan! It’s over there!” Tapion calls out, slashing at something that looks like dad’s Dragon Fist, only more thoroughly controlled and not quite as strong. The man... no, the shadowy force controlling the man, tries to advance, slowly but surely pushing Tapion back.“Got it! Minotia, Zarid, let’s do this!” You run past them, Zarid tackling the man from behind and letting Tapion get a clear strike in, pommel of his sword smashing into the man’s face. He misses a fatal swing with his blade, but Minotia’s able to make up for it by forming a sphere of Ki above his head and dunking it down at their foe right as Zarid leaps off, smashing him through the floor.The pulsing core of the fortress lets out a beam of crimson energy towards you and Tapion, with you dodging it but Tapion having to block it with his sword, some of it getting through and hitting him. He powers through, though, and the two of you rush at the monsterous eye, swords drawn, and plunge them both into it. A demonic wail shrieks out, the form of the pulsing creature withering away... and finally, the simulation ends.“Hooooh.” Zarid exhales, falling back. “T-two down, right?”“Two down!” Minotia affirms, offering a hand to help him up.“Heh, man, I’m surprised with all you guys have had to go through.” Zarid comments, getting to his feet.“Thanks for helping out. This really isn’t your fight, but you’re willing to do so much. I really appreciate it, Zarid. And Minotia, Tapion, thank you both too.”“It is the least we can do to repay the kindness we were shown.”Zarid gives you a thumb’s up. “And hey, what are friends for, if not busting some demons together?”>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST KAI #16...

>>3523833Really nice finish there, Kato. Thanks for running.
>>3523833Sad we didn't fight Corvus, but maybe we can use that for future HTC training?Kato, by fixing up the lookout is Trip, Popo and Piccolo learning more about how to advance it?
>>3524419Why should an ancient place be advanced? Does it not have A/C?
I think Ghost Dad and Uncle Hatch will be big for the group, but for Gohan especially.13, will be good for the other three to challenge themselves while we fight Kougeki with Piccolo.For Broly and Mira, fighting them both will be a test for everyone equally. Kougeki is here too but he's more for the other three at that point.
>>3525057Edit: Kougeki was at the tournament, for one of those. But fighting him will probably still come up.
>>3523841Thanks anon.>>3524419These scenarios will go back to normal once the Phantom is vanquished.We'll see.>>3525057>>3525065We'll see.Okay, sorry again for that delay. We're back. Nobody down here knows how to drive in the damn rain, Primus.>>3523833“So, three left.” Tapion comments. “Where should we go next?”“Whichever you pick, I’ll be taking on another by myself.” Piccolo’s voice calls to you all. “Or you could split up and we can get all of these over with quickly.”“I would recommend against that, especially since these are going to be rather difficult challenges for all of you.” Trip adds. “I’ve sent Yosei to get a few Senzu just in case.”Well, this’ll help things along. “In that case...”>A. 13 should be the be next, he’s an easier target>B. Broly and Mira, only two targets, even if they’re strong ones>C. Hatchiyak and Dr. Raichi, let’s get them out of the way>D. Actually, splitting up would be a good idea...>E. Something else?
>>3525105>C. I ain't afraid of no Ghost Gramps.
>>3525105Piccolo should probably take 13 and we'll take on Broly and Mira together when both scenarios are over.Then figure out the sixth one, and fight this dark force.
>>3525105>C. Hatchiyak and Dr. Raichi, let’s get them out of the way
>>3525115Heh. Exactly.>>3525105“We’ll handle Hatchiyak and Dr. Raichi. Let’s get them out of the way.” you tell Trip. “Might be best to save Broly and Mira for last, for all of us.”“Very well.” Piccolo nods. “I will handle 13.”Giving him a thumb’s up, you tell him, “Good luck, Mr. Piccolo.”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ubAfYF9uS6gPiccolo nods, and heads forward before you all. He vanishes in a flash of light, and then your group heads to the center of the Pendulum Room again. With Trip wishing you well once more, you’re once more sent off to another time and place. You all appear in an area that, while foreign to Tapion, Minotia, and Zarid... is all too familiar to you. And immediately, you sense two powerful figures clashing. You motion for everyone to lower their Ki, and look to where you’re sensing it. There’s... a person with mixed blonde and red hair fighting against Hatchiyak.“Defiant to the end, I see. But this is not the end for us.”You also sense... something odd lurking near Hatchiyak, slowly approaching as beams clash. Feels just like the thing that appeared with Ozotto and in the Makyan fortress. Also seems the person he’s fighting is... the fusion of mom and uncle Acer. Agh, but there are others you’re sensing in the area too...>A. Everyone, attack while we’ve got the element of surprise!>B. Best to go after the the Phantom’s presence, keep it away from Hatchiyak!>C. Help the fused fighter! Power up to Super Saiyan 2!>D. Something else?

>>3525222https://youtu.be/ZELZ7ofkGQs“Guys, I’ll take out Hatchiyak with them, someone needs to keep the Phantom away from it!” you call out, powering up. Your aura flares and sparks around you as you reach Super Saiyan 2, then bolt over to the fused Tuffle. They look to you in surprise, and even Hatchiyak doesn’t anticipate what’s about to happen next. Quick-charging the attack, you yell out, “KAMEHAMEHAAA!”The combined beams start to force Hatchiyak’s attack back, and as you pump more energy into it, so does the fused Tuffle. The sudden influx of energy blasts into Hatchiyak, forcing the Supercomputer turned instrument of vengeance through a good portion of Dr. Raichi’s castle. Your mom-uncle looks at you... and they laugh as their eyes water. “G-Gohan? Is that you? When’d you get so big?”“No time to explain! We need to take him down, quick!”Hatchiyak bursts out of the rubble, blasting down at you. “SAIYAAAAAN!”You catch his massive fist in your hands, then grab tight and fling him to the ground, leaping up and delivering a fierce dropkick into Hatchiyak’s back. He lets out an Explosive Wave that tears through part of the fortress, but fails to catch you. Minotia and Tapion manage to get in on the action as well, the younger of the pair using a shield to protect the older as he makes a deep wound in Hatchiyak’s chest. You feel the fighters from before start to approach in large number... and it seems like almost everyone you know. But you can’t let that distract you!Aple... that was their name, right? Well, they bring both their swords out, grip reversed on them, and rush towards Hatchiyak, you doing the same. “DOUBLE! CROSS! STRAAAAASH!” they yell out, letting out blasts of energy from their swords as they swing at the wound Tapion made. You mimic their actions perfectly, and Hatchiyak simply can’t take all this damage at once. As Tapion and Minotia head off, you and the fused Tuffle deliver one final blow to Hatchiyak, eradicating him completely.“It... it’s over...” the voices of Maple and Acer exhale, collapsing and separating into two again as the Fusion’s energy runs out.“All right! We’ve won!” you cheer. “Tapion, Minotia, Zarid, you guys get that Phantom?” You look over to to three of them... and feel something off. Tapion and Minotia seem stunned as they look at Zarid... who feels a good deal stronger than before. And... you see a dark aura surrounding him. He glances back at you and... gives a malicious grin.Oh no. OH NO.>A. Trip! Trip end the simulation!>B. Zarid, snap out of it!>C. Mom, mom we need your help!

>>3525442I mean, sure, it shows how far Gohan's "come" or whatever, but I feel like we're rushing through things because it's wednesday night and the main threat hasn't shown their face still.
>>3525442Power levels are bullshit, remember.
>>3525400https://youtu.be/HopDawcD5Hg“Zarid! Agh, damn it!” You use the Raio-ken to get to him, and to your surprise he launches himself at you at high speeds, faster than what he’s normally capable of. He tries to grapple you, though your superior skill and speed allows you to forsee it with ease. “Come on man, snap out of it!”“Hahahahaha!” Zarid laughs out, an inhuman, secondary voice echoing underneath his normal one. A dark aura surges around him, boosting his power further. A dark blast of Ki shoots out from his hand, with you getting a sneaking suspicion that this isn’t a normal energy attack. You dodge away from it too, Tapion and Minotia falling back.“All right, I didn’t want to have to do this. Get the hell out of my friend’s body, Phantom!” You raise your hands above your head, your body lifting into the air. Light Magic builds up around you and-...And the Phantom seems to know EXACTLY what you’re doing, and bolts off, laughing all the way. Mom, however, is able to get up, even though she’s just about completely out of energy. “S-SAMMA VACA!”she declares, and you feel Zarid’s Ki, or rather, the sinister presence from the Phantom, drop substantially.>A. Thanks mom! Okay, let’s try this again! After him and use Luminaire!>B. Bolt to Zarid and ask Trip to end the simulation!>C. Catch hold of him and have mom use the Curse Breaker on him!>D.

>>3525509You stop casting the technique and try for another plan. Only have one shot at this, and better make it count! “HRRRAAAAAAAAAHHH!” Blasting forward, you tackle Zarid and grab hold of him, flying him back to Maple. “MOM! CURSE BREAKER, QUICK!”The Phantom’s power tries to spike up again, and you can feel it start to seep into your body as well. But you make it just in time, holding Zarid in front of Maple. She places her hand on his head. “CURSE! BREAKER!”An inhuman yell escapes Zarid’s mouth as a dark energy jolts out from him, flying off into the sky. You let Zarid down. “Uuugh... I feel like I was hit down to the ground from low-Earth orbit...”“Heh, just glad you’re safe.” You sigh in relief.“Wonder if that’s how Sachie felt when that Pharaoh guy tried to take over her mind.” Zarid rubs his head. “Mngh. Gonna need to learn that trick from her some day too...”You all notice the simulation begin to end... and so do Maple and Acer. The two of them look at one another, then at your group... smiling happily. “...I see. Good luck, son.”Returning back to the Lookout, Trip hurries to Zarid, checking if he’s injured. “That was a close one... thank goodness you were able to think quickly, Gohan.”“Just looking out for my friends.” you reply with a smile, giving Zarid a thumb’s up. “He’s not the only one who’s been in a situation like that.”“Rgh... I... think I felt something while it was controlling me. Like it was... reading my mind, somehow. I saw flashes of things I’d fought before.”“It most likely was. Trying to find more things to draw power from.” Piccolo tells him. “Still, we only have one left. Broly and Mira.”“Then we shall vanquish this demon for good.” Tapion declares. “Our struggle is almost over.”Excitedly, Minotia adds, “What’re we waiting for? Let’s kick its butt!”>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST KAI #16... 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 continue tomorrow starting ~5:30 pm PST.

>>3525579Yeah, even though the fight scene was rushed, but I get it. Hopefully whoever this shadow is can put up a decent fight.
>>3525579Oh nice, we getting an extra day? Fun times Kato, thanks for running!
>>3525579Had a good time, Kato.I'm kinda worried about the in setting ethics of creating disposable copies of friends and loved ones, though. Philosophical zombies is the best case scenario, and I kinda doubt that's what's happening.

Remember the time Maple and Goku created an alternate timeline that made the Hero of Justice Hatchiyak?Pepparidge Farm remembers.
>>3525579How'd Piccolo's fight with 13 go? He get anything useful out of it?
>>3525589Things will be a bit different tonight, I'll say that much.>>3525590Indeed, and thanks for playing!>>3525683Glad to hear, and definitely something to think on then.>>3525965Shhhhh.>>3526747A couple things you'll see in just a moment.Okay, we are back!>>3525579You arrive at the final period in time... and immediately feel two titanic powers clashing, one of which you’re all too familiar with, and the other you’ve definitely felt before. Zarid, Tapion, and Minotia all look on in mild shock as they dense it, the whole planet around you shaking as blows are exchanged between Mira and Broly.“W-wow. It’s like that Hatchiyak guy fighting himself.” Zarid exclaims.“Gohan, we will take the two of them on.” Piccolo tells you. “Zarid, Tapion, Minotia, you three will keep watch for that Dark Phantom’s presence, but do not engage. As soon as it reveals itself, contact us immediately.”“Understood.” Tapion replies with a nod. “Is there anything else we should keep watch for?”Piccolo nods, to your surprise. “I noticed something unusual while I took down the merged form of 13. In the distance there was a large humanoid figure, some giant robot of some sort I’d guess, that popped up out of nowhere. Brench doesn’t have things like that. There was also a man in silver and red armor. Both of them seemed confused as to what they were doing there, and when I noticed them I felt the same presence as the Phantom... but the phantom’s influence disappeared, and instead they assisted me.”“That... huh?” Zarid tilts his head.“Point is, keep an eye out for other unusual people. There shouldn’t be many other souls around this planet. It may be attempting to gather more allies, but just the same, we may gain more allies instead.”>A. All right, I’ll try and hold off Mira then>B. Leave Broly to me, Mr. Piccolo>C. Could the Phantom’s copy of me be here as well, then?>D. Something else?

>>3526918https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tW6UD3IutXI“Okay. I’ll take on Broly. Leave him to me, Mr. Piccolo!” You power up into Super Saiyan 2 again.“All right. Counting on you, Gohan. Zarid, Tapion, Minotia, you have your objective. We’ll deal with these as quickly as possible.” Piccolo’s aura flares red as he yells out, “KAIO-KEN!”Together the two of you blast forward towards the fighting pair, with you surprising Broly with a fierce strike to the jaw. “HHHRRRAAAAAAHH!”That sends the Legendary Super Saiyan flying, crashing through a mountain, while Piccolo amps up his power and grabs hold of Mira, flinging him to the ground. Mira flies back out. “...Piccolo. Ah, and Gohan... curious, I haven’t seen that power before. Did the Time Patrol give you another little hint, boy?”“RRRAAAAAAAAAGH!” Broly yells out, flying at you, but not countering just yet. “You. That was a cheap shot.”“Yeah well was the only way to get your attention.” You take your stance, back to back with Piccolo. “You can stop fighting Mira now.”“You intend to stop me? FOOL! I’m going to KILL him! And if I have to plow through you to do that, I will!” He then flies forward, trying to clothesline you with his massive arm... but you’re able to dodge under and grab him, flinging him to the ground and following it up with a kick to his back as he leaves a crater.Out of the corner of your eye you see Mira smirking, bringing his hands together and... wait a second, that’s Vegeta’s- “FINAL FLASH!” Piccolo’s able to dodge out of the way, and counters by stretching his arm all the way to Mira’s face, smashing his fist into the blue demon’s jaw. Broly gets up out of the crater you kicked him into... and smirks.“You... you’re... like Kakarot. You have his scent. And power... you are a true challenge.” Broly then squints, sniffing the air. “But... you smell like her too. Her... the Tuffle!”“Yeah. I’m still not letting you face Mira. You’re staying right here where I can see you.” Your sparking aura surges as you face him down. “Do you want to end up with people like him, who just want to control you and your power?”“I’ll KILL him! I’ll kill ALL who stand in my way! I... I...! IIAAAAGGHH!” And... Broly’s power increases slightly too. Steadily but surely.>A. Go all-out! Just keep Broly focused on you!>B. Broly... why do you hate them? What did they do to you?>C. Keep up the pressure, but don’t take him down just yet>D.

>>3527076https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GzuXgfuSE5YYou exhale sadly. “Broly. I’ve seen your future. You’re not going to beat him. You’ll end up a puppet for Mira and Towa, just like you were for your father.”“You think I’m that WEAK, boy?!” Broly growls out at you, launching forward. You block an elbow strike from him, and push him back.“No. You’re strong. Too strong. But you refused to listen to Maple, you refused anyone’s help. You ended up a gun, falling into the hands of Mira and Towa. You’ve got so much power but nothing to reign it in, nothing to focus it towards except destruction. Against Goku, against Maple... I’m sorry, Broly. I really am.” Your Ki spikes up even higher, catching even Mira’s attention.“RRRRAAAAAAAGGHH! Shut up! SHUT UP! I WON’T FALL TO ANY MORE LIES LIKE THIS! I’LL KILL YOU! I’LL KILL MIRA! AND I WILL KILL KAKAROOOOTTT!” His massive fists rain blows down on you, but each one you see coming as your strength rises. You place your hands on Broly’s gut and blast him away, then power up more, your hair growing longer.“BEHOLD! THIS! IS SUPER SAIYAN 3!” you declare triumphantly as you finish transforming. Like a berserking beast, Broly leaps at you again, trying to stomp down at you... only to hit an afterimage. One that detonates and sends him into the air. And right into you knee, stopping him in his tracks.Broly tries to swipe at you, building up Ki in his palm as he does, and swinging it down at you once the swipe misses. You deflect the green sphere of energy and bring both hands forward, firing off a Lightning-boosted Double Geist Magnum. “Y-YEEAAARRGGHH!”And in the blink of an eye, you’re right on top of him again, kicking him into the ground, dashing to him, and pummeling him with the Machinegun Punch. You finish it off by grabbing Broly by the leg and flinging him into the air. Your hands raise up. “LUMINAIRE!”Broly screams out in agony as he’s engulfed in Light. He vanishes completely. It’s over....Well, partially. Mira and Piccolo end up in front of you, fists clashing as you feel Piccolo’s upped his strength as high as possible, with a Kaio-ken x20. But even with that... Mira’s holding his own. He looks to you and... smirks. “So, this is what you’ve been hiding all this time. Shame this planet won’t last very long.” He looks in the distance and... you see a white light. A massive planet, it’s headed right for this one! ...Except it’s not. “...It’s stopped?”>A. Attack Mira! Full force!>B. Power down, you’ve used up too much Ki already>C. Check on everyone else, did they find the Phantom?>D. Piccolo, Senzu, quick!>E. Something else?

Would a Senzu Bean actually restore our Qi if we've used it up? Like, Maple falls on her front everytime she's exhausted even with a Senzu. Senzu beans might just give people a whole ton of Jing to heal up instead of Qi to restore their breath.

>>3527251You power down back to Super Saiyan 2 before the wear of Super Saiyan 3 becomes too much to handle. Mira immediately notices this, and in a flash appears behind you, his hand on your back. “Seems that power has its downsides, though.”Before you can get away or even ask for a Senzu, you’re blasted by Mira, your body skipping across the ground. You get to your feet, Piccolo regrouping with you, and together you’re able to hold your own better, but only just. “MASENKO!” Piccolo yells, firing a beam at Mira.The demon dodges, charging a Galick Gun... though with a much darker tint to its energy, and blasts it forward into a massive beam wider than you are tall. It clips through a mountain... but as the mountain’s blasted apart, the rubble stops in midair. Okay, this is getting weird. ‘Zarid, Tapion, Minotia, please tell me you guys have got some good news here! Have you found the Phantom?’‘He’s here, and that’s not all, Gohan. He’s interfered with this simulation. There is a blue genie that the Phantom has taken control of and brought here.’ Tapion replies.You and Piccolo sense something truly powerful approaching. Mira senses it too, turning his head in the direction of its source. A round, three-fingered being that seems to resemble Mr. Popo with hair and blue skin leaps into the air. “Finally, a form fit for someone as grand as myself!” the Jinn declares. “And you have shown the full extent of your power! Ah, but this one...” he points to Mira. “I can tell there is more hiding in him too! I want it! I want it all! HAHAHAHAHA!”Mira seems unamused. “Whoever you are, you will need more than that puny strength.”The genie snaps his fingers. Shadowy figures appear all over the ground, taking the forms of... oh. Oh crap. King Piccolo, Garlic Jr., Cooler, Freeza, Kougeki, some strange green bugman, that blonde fighter he took possession of before, and several more all forming, some you have no clue as to who they are, all starting to surround you, Piccolo, and Mira.Ah. Crap. “Tapion, I requested good news. Please tell me there is good news.”(cont.)
>>3527377https://youtu.be/CZGaAgVx9hA‘There is some. That is not all that has arrived.’A golden streak blasts forth, just narrowly missing the Genie, but is able to turn back and blast him in the back of the head. He stops some distance away. That... the other you!“N’CHA!”A beam catches Mira off-guard, knocking him back. Arale?! “Hoyo!” she greets, waving at you and Piccolo.Zarid walks up next to her, with some other people beside him. A black-haired teenager in a yellow tank top and blue pants. A boy with spiky black hair in a green outfit. A brown-haired man in red and silver armor, matching the one Piccolo mentioned. A young swordsman in blue with a crown, holding his blade in reverse-grip, who looks oddly familiar. “Seems trying to restore himself as that Teapot Genie had some drawbacks. He’s abusing this system too much.”Tapion and Minotia with several others by their sides, nod at you. “We’ll hold these off. Gohan, Piccolo, you finish the two of them!” Tapion holds up his sword. “And here, catch!”>A. Keep it, Tapion! You’ll need it more than me>B. Thanks, Tapion! Let’s finish this quickly!>C. Other me! Let’s work together, focus on Mira!>D. Get the other you to help you go after the Teapot Genie>E. Pick whichever target he’s not going after>F. Something else?
>>3527377>“Finally, a form fit for someone as grand as myself!” the Jinn declares.
>>3527383https://youtu.be/jviHqcDWF58>>3527381>A. Keep it, Tapion! You’ll need it more than me>F. Other me! Let’s FUSE.
>>3527381>A & D.
>>3527391>>3527416Is both fine?
>>3527464Fusion isn't a good idea and Gohan never practices it.
>>3527471But each Gohan will be equally unpracticed and matched.
>>3527476Or Fail exactly the same. They just need unified motion, coordination, and syncing. Anyway, we're the only two playing right now, so can you help me out and support me?
...Does the other Gohan have Rainbow?
>>3527464Gohan doesn't know how to fuse. Amusing idea though.>>3527381>A & D
>>3527484I'm going back to ignoring you.
What did Maple teach Gohan in that time chamber if he doesn't know utilitarian stuff like Fusion?

>>3527494Looking back at the archive, seems like they decided to work on transformations. Blech. And those seven years from Tuffle Quest Z were also spent on SS3. Goddamnit.
A last minute suggestion: Try to get Mira to help fight the being "seeking to manipulate him."
>>3527556So you're seeking to manipulate him into fighting the one seeking to manipulate him?
>>3527570Be careful what you fish for!
>>3527381“Keep it, Tapion! You’ll need it more than me! Best of luck!” You give him a thumb’s up. While surprised, he returns it, nodding and smiling.“Best of luck.” Tapion grips the sword tight and readies himself, flanked by a tall redheaded teenager in a black cloak and black katana and a silver-haired man with a white robe over a black shirt weilding a bokken.“Hey! Other me!” you call out. “The Phantom is the cause of all of this! Let’s take him down together!”He looks to you sternly for a moment... but gives a nod of approval. The Phantom in the body of the Genie laughs. “If you’re so sure you can, then by all means, go ahead and try! I want to see every last trick you’re capable of!”Piccolo focuses his attention on Mira again, who actually manages to catch his fist, looking off and... giving a shrug to someone. A moment later, his Ki starts to surge, the white armor on his body breaking off as his hair gets wilder, muscles increasing in size slightly. He knocks Piccolo back and chases after him, Piccolo’s aura flaring red again as he uses the Kaio-ken once more.Meanwhile you and the other Gohan time your movements with one another, dodging each of the Phantom’s blows and leaving afterimages to trick him up, countering when you get the chance. However, you realize that this body is substantially tougher than you were expecting. He may not have the speed to match you at the moment, but he’s able to take a number of hits and keep going. To switch things up, the both of you stand side by side and wait for him to come at you, the massive genie lunging forward with an attempted bear hug, only for you both to leap out of the way and dropkick him right in the eyes.“AGH! PUNKS!” He swipes at you both, groaning in pain.“So, he’s not invincible, just extremely durable.” You comment to... yourself. God this is weird. The genie opens his massive mouth wide, building up an absurd amount of Ki, more than enough to shatter the whole planet a couple times over, and blasts it out at you. Superior speed saves you, but the blast keeps going, up into space, hitting the comet that was headed for the planet, still frozen in place... and breaking it apart. The other you glares at him, but seems to be thinking up a plan as he does. He glances around the area and spots something. He smiles, then looks you in the eye. “Keep him busy. I have an idea.”>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST KAI #16... Paused.>Twitter account is @KatoQm, will have status updates there>Got some questions for the QM? Suggestions?

>>3527613Broly got bodied pretty bad, huh?I feel a little spoiled getting to play for so long, and an early session tomorrow to boot. Anything good happen lately in regards to scheduling?
>>3527613You're spoiling us, Kato! Is this for the Quest's anniversary? Not complaining, just a little surprised. And yeah, had a ton of fun! Thanks for running!
>>3527613I'm surprised the phantom didn't go for the Hirudegarn scenario....
>>3527622>>3527626So, a couple good things. I'll not get into any big details for it, but one thing that's been eating into my free time for the last... Primus, few months now, has started to clear up. It's something related to an incident from last year that should have been dealt with then, but ended up dragged out into this year. Wife and I have been able to get it settled, thankfully. Furthermore, yes, this is a thing I've sort of been planning as an anniversary bit, as a way to thank y'all for sticking through this for so long. Four years, Primus... Though I do have to warn, I won't be running next week.>>3528729SHHHH.Okay, we are back!>>3527613As the other Gohan flies off, the Phantom’s Ki spikes up. He raises a hand and snaps his fingers again. Stormclouds build up above you, and a bolt of lightning strikes down. You dodge away from it, but as you do, another blasts down. This one aimed better than the last. Below you, you see massive explosions where the bolts of lightning hit. Okay, DEFINITELY want to avoid getting hit by those.You also see Tapion leading the charge against the fighters the Phantom summoned... his aura flaring red with the Kaio-ken. Zarid you spot fighting some... unusual monster, slightly crocodillian, but also a bit like an alien, with a big, central eye on its face and a long, sloped head... that opens up into large jaws. Okay that is... unusual. Minotia works with the redheaded teenage swordfighter in black, the two of them holding off Magil together. And up in the air, Piccolo keeps trying to hold off Mira, though you can tell Mira’s starting to get an advantage... and his Ki keeps spiking up.>A. Attack the Phantom, keep the pressure on him!>B. Bring your sword out, and try to harness one of the bolts of lightning with it!>C. Charge up speed as you dodge to prepare for a Shinespark!>D. Dodge the lightning! Raio-ken!>E. Try to get some of the bolts of Lightning to hit Mira to help Piccolo out!>F. Something else?
>>3529070Combine B and E into a lighting assist bolt strike on Mira.
Welp, this is just a crackpot theory, but the genie's outta the bottle, so allow me to shine some lamplight on what could close the lid on this phantom menace: all the goody-goody's gotta take one for the team. He gets stronger from evil phantoms, good phantoms gotta get allllll up in that.

Instead of dodging the next bolt, you focus your Ki around your blade and let the lightning strike down. With a thunderous crash, your sword fills with magical power, with you using all your strength to hold it around your sword. “HRRRRRAAAAAAAAHHH!” You turn your body around and look to Mira, who’s grabbed Piccolo by the throat and punching him in the face over and over. He notices the surge in power near you, but notices it too late. You swing your sword down, unleashing the titanic amount of energy from the bolt you managed to charge up. It crashes into Mira and causes him to drop Piccolo, electricity surging into his body and overwhelming it. He crashes to the ground hard, leaving a substantial crater. That wasn’t enough to kill him, but that did so some serious damage.Gohan has learned a new Ultimate: “Thunder Break Slash”Below, you see Tapion and Minotia getting pushed back. Freeza stands above them, letting off several Death Beams that the two brothers can only barely deflect on their own. Arale manages to head in and help them out, rushing forward and dropkicking Freeza at full-speed, laughing as she does so. Zarid and one of the swordsmen fighting alongside them, the one with the crown, can barely hold off the combined assault from Magil and the monster Zarid was fighting before. But... you feel a spike in Zarid’s Ki. “Tranquil... surge... it’s sink or swim with this! KAIO... KEN!” Leaping into the air with the blazing red aura around him, he avoids a dark blast from Magil and rockets down at the demon. “FULL POWER KIIIIIICK!”That sends Magil crashing into the ground so hard he bounces across it. And the swordfighter... hey wait a second, that’s-! “AVAN STRASH! CROOOSS!”Magil is felled by their combined efforts, Mira getting out of the crater you sent him to and taking note of it. He snorts dismissively, then looks up at you and the Phantom in the Genie’s body. “Hmnh. Very well. No need to hold anything back!” Mira’s power surges higher, his... hair spiking up? What the... is he... going Super Saiyan or something?!Giddily the Dark Phantom cheers. “Yes! Yes, that’s it! Show me ALL your power!” He raises both hands into the air, snapping his fingers, the thunderstorm increasing in intensity for a moment. You’re able to dodge the next three strikes, except... it’s not directly aimed at you. He’s targeting Mira!>A. Try this again, but aim the next one at the Phantom!>B. Blast the demon with Luminaire while he’s focused on Mira!>C. Charge up a Shinespark and hit Mira with it, get both him and the Phantom away from the main group!>D. Duck down and help Piccolo, see if he needs a Senzu or something>E. Something else?
If a genie became a prostitute, would that make them a hookah hookah?

>>3529301>Thunder Break SlashSo, Poltergeist Blitzzusammenstreichen, or Geist Blitzuchen for short.
>>3529301You dash down, avoiding the bolts of lightning as Mira charges at the Phantom. You reach Piccolo, helping him up. “You okay there, Mr. Piccolo?”“Rgh... mostly...” He slowly stands as you help him up. “Mira’s strength is above what even I expected.”“Got an idea. You know how you can catch someone with the Mafuba?” you ask Piccolo. He nods, tilting his head curiously as he takes a Senzu. “Instead of sealing someone, could you use it to like... keep him in place and send them right at me?”Piccolo smirks. “All right. I’ll give it a try.” He tosses you a Senzu as well. “Heal up first, you’re losing strength.”“Aim for the Dark Phantom. We’ve probably only got one clear shot at this.” Your aura surges around you after you take the Senzu, sparks flying from your body. “Here it goes!”https://youtu.be/BNDA0_LTqbMPiccolo readies himself as you start to build up speed. As you do, you see the gathered fighters gaining ground, pushing the Phantom’s allies back. Tapion uses the Kaio-ken and Raio-ken together to outspeed the green bugman you saw from before, dodging its stinger-like tail and even slashing it off with his sword. You spot one of the swordfighters, the silver-haired one with the bokken, bring his hands together... his energy spiking up. Waaaait... is that...? “Kaaaa... meeee...”Meanwhile Minotia keeps deflecting Freeza’s Death Beams, the man in red and silver armor dashing up from behind him and managing to grapple the Frost Demon. He leaps into the air with Freeza, spinning around with the tyrant. And driving him into the ground, the armored fighter declares, “PEGASUS! ROLLING CRUSH!” Freeza’s smashed into the ground, apparently down for the count.Zarid meanwhile slams his hands into the ground and trips up Garlic Jr. with a burst of energy, the teenager in yellow and blue holding his hand... in a gun-shape? But he’s charged it up like the Kamehameha. “FULL POWER! MEGA SPIRIT GUN!” An even larger sphere of energy than you were expecting from a technique that seems so familiar slams into Garlic Jr, overpowering him completely and finishing him off.“HAAAAAA!” the silver-haired swordsman fires a Kamehameha, the bug-man catching it, but it forces him into the defensive as the redheaded swordfighter in black slashes at him, letting out a pitch black wave from his sword. Tapion finishes it up by getting right under the bugman’s defenses and slashing through him at the torso, reminding you of how his Kami initially took down Hirudegarn. The combined attacks begin to overwhelm the monster, and with one last push coming from a sourse he definitely wasn’t expecting.“N’CHAAAAAA!”The bugman swears as he’s eradicated completely, and finally you’ve built up enough speed. Piccolo lets out the Mafuba as you call out, “SHINE! SPAAAAAARK!”(cont.)
>>3529624Caught in the attack, the Genie is flung right towards you! You hit him like a meteor, crashing into the ground and leaving a crater as you do. You speed away as power erupts from the Dark Phantom, a massive explosion following. You reach Mira, who glares down at you, ready to fight once more. Wow... Piccolo wasn’t kidding. You haven’t sensed anything even close to this kind of power before, not even from Hirudegarn.“Ooooh you’re in for it now, boy!” The Phantom leaps into the air once more. Gah, it damaged him, but it wasn’t nearly enough to keep him down. “Ah, but you keep showing so much power! Potential! Hahahaha! I want it! I WANT IT ALL!”“Villains like you will never prosper!” a voice declares, and you have to do a double-take once you hear it. W-what? Why is he...? “JUSTICE CANNON!” A massive beam hits the demon... fired from Hatchiyak.The other Gohan comes back, smiling. “Found some extra help.”Piccolo regroups with you. “This is getting us nowhere. We’ll need to overpower him completely if we want to finish him for good.”“Do you have a plan?” you ask Piccolo.“Yeah. Trying to wear him down like this will only drain us faster than it drains him. But with all the people he’s gathered, I have one trick that’ll get him for good. The Spirit Bomb.” Piccolo holds his hands up. “Give me a minute to gather enough energy.”>A. Will do! I’ll keep the pressure on the Phantom!>B. Better keep Mira off him, he’s still no ally>C. Call out to everyone, ask for them to share their energy!>D. Hatchiyak, make sure Mira doesn’t interfere!>E. Something else?
>>3529630>B. Better keep Mira off him, he’s still no ally

>>3529630H'o wait.Can we try do what Izzy did against Hirudegarn and try to channel the spirit bomb through Tapion's sword?

>>3529630“I’ll keep Mira off you, Mr. Piccolo.” Your float away from him. “He’s still no ally of ours.” The other you approaches as well, looking to you and nodding.Mira crosses his arms confidently, his red eyes looking down at you and... you. “I was wondering about why there was another. Seems the Time Patrol is getting desperate, if they’re calling for something like that to aid you, Gohan.” He points to Hatchiyak. “Still curious about these forms. Did one of Basilea’s last clashes with you get you out of that funk?”“Well, clearly you’re not a different Mira from the one I’ve seen before.” The two of you ready yourselves, Hatchiyak... posing heroically as he stands with Piccolo, then flying off to confront the Majin. You both go after Mira, getting around him. “This Towa gonna replace you when she’s got her own?”“Your taunts still need work.” Mira retorts, blocking your attacks. You and the other Gohan use the Raio-ken to up your speed even further, managing to keep pace with Mira... but only just. Still, it’s enough to keep him away from Piccolo, the two of you unleashing a barrage of blows against him. Managing to land a solid blow on him finally as the two of you land punches in his gut, Mira flinches. You both jolt into the sky, gaining the speed you need for the Shinespark, and rocket back down at Mira. The blow lands, and Mira’s sent crashing into the ground. A huge crater forms, dirt knocked into the air and yet freezing in place.“Had enough?” you ask.Blue hands grip the necks of you and your counterpart. “Getting lucky isn’t a reason to start gloating. You should know that already.” Mira squeezes his grip tighter, the two of you trying to get loose from it to no avail. “Shame. Basilea clearly hasn’t hammered that home just yet. Towa will need to up how strict she is with her. Iron out those last bits of human weakness.”“G-GRH!” The two of you bring out your swords. Mira fires red beams from his eyes to knock them out of your hands.“Pathetic.” Mira slams the two of you into the ground, his grip still tight around your necks. “Is this really all you’re capable of?” Your Ki starts to fade, as you exert more of it to even try and get away. Even attempting to use the Geist Magnum, boosted with Lightning, does nothing to him, not even numbing his arms.“BRAVE CANNON!” Tapion yells out. The attack misses, but it is enough to get Mira to let go of you.“BRAVE SLASH!” Minotia follows up, slashing out at Mira. The demon dodges every blast and makes it look like he’s not even trying.Zarid’s able to get to you and your counterpart, and attempts to pull the both of you to safety. Almost bored by the effort, Mira holds out his hand, then thrusts up two fingers. The immediate area around you erupts, sending everyone into the air and crashing down hard. Slowly Mira begins to walk forward. “Are you all quite finished?”(cont.)
>>3529795https://youtu.be/3wRV5qsq-2cPainfully, you open your eyes... and begin to chuckle weakly. “H-eheh... eheh... heh...”“That noise is annoying. I should break your lungs next.” Mira walks over.“You... won’t... get the chance...”He finally notices why you’re laughing, seeing Piccolo’s gathered a massive Spirit Bomb from the combined energies of the summoned fighters. Hatchiyak’s managed to grab hold of the Dark Phantom... ready to put himself in harm’s way to let Piccolo get a clear shot. “DO IT! WHILE YOU HAVE THE CHANCE!”“Never thought I’d see the day...” Piccolo’s red aura flares up again. “HERE GOES! SPIRIT BOMB!” He flings the massive sphere of energy forward, with it crashing into the body of the Genie the Phantom’s controlling. It collides, and all the gathered fighters look back at your group. They give a smile... and the whole place fades to white.The last thing you hear is your other self. “...Nice job. Keep improving.”You try blinking a few times, only coming to when you hear Trip’s voice. “Gohan! Gohan!”Pushing yourself up, you rub your head. Everyone comes to, letting out groans like they’ve been woken up with half as much sleep they’d like. “Ugh... did we get ‘em?”“That’s the last of the eras the Dark Phantom corrupted.” Piccolo states, sounding fairly exhausted himself. “That should be it.”“Hhhhhhh...” A voice, creeping and sinister wheezes out. “Hhhhhoooooowwwww?” A shadowy form stands before you all... its Ki matching that you’ve felt before, but substantially weaker.>A. It’s over. Give up, Phantom!>B. Blast ‘em and be done with it>C. Can someone Mafuba that thing away before it causes any more trouble?>D. Something else?
>>3529798>D. Offer the Phantom this one last chance of redemption. "I forgive you."
>>3529805Support, but is he refuses, C.
>>3529809If, not is
>>3529809...Eh, maybe it's less forgiveness and more asking if he gives up. Just feels weird otherwise.
>>3529798Ugh. Welp. You telepathically contact Piccolo and tell him to have something ready if this doesn’t work. Looking to the Phantom, you can only ask, “Are you willing to stop? You’ve got nothing else you can do against us. Your plan’s over, Dark Phantom. We can all put this behind us.”“Nnnnnnhhhhh...” The shadowy body twitches. “Yyyyyoooouuu... dddaaaaaaarrreee...?”“I know you have some hangups with my father and everyone else, but... there’s nothing left for you to pull. You can change.”“Nnnnoooo... ffffoooorrrrggiiiivveeennnnneeeesssss!” The form of the phantom lurches forward weakly.You leap back. “Then I’m sorry. You’ve made your choice. Piccolo!”“MAFUBA!”“NNNNNOOOOOOOoooooo....!” The Phantom’s caught up in the whirlwind of energy, forced into a little jar Piccolo prepared.It’s over.You fall back, laughing. “Ha... haha... hoo boy, that was something...”“Eheh. This probably hits the #2 spot for most dangerous kind of situation I’ve been in.” Zarid comments, looking over to you. “But #1 for most exciting.”“I am glad I was able to help repay my debt to you all for how you helped me.” Tapion states. “And I was able to put my new skills to good use.”“I’ll say! You guys went back and brought me back and everything. It’s the least I could do. Heh, been so long since bro and I have been on an adventure like that anyway!” Minotia cheers.>A. I think we’ve all earned a nice rest from this, though>B. Trip, what’re you gonna do with that thing?>C. So, any chance of it trying to reform somehow like it did here?>D. Something else?
>>3529906>A. I think we’ve all earned a nice rest from this, though>D. Think about seeing copies of your family and yourself fade into nothingness, and ask Trip if they go to an afterlife or something.
>>3529960Supporting. At least let's her a better idea on how this works.
>>3529964Hear, not her
Okay then, moving on...>>3529906“I think we’ve all earned a nice, long rest from this.” You stretch a little, everyone starting to walk off as Piccolo gathers up the bottle. Looking back though, you... feel the need to ask Trip something. “...This may sound weird, but, what exactly happens to the copies of the people in there when the simulations are over? Do they have like... some kind of afterlife?”She rubs the side of her head. “It is... a somewhat complicated issue. Using any of these scenarios requires the explicit permission of the Goddess of Time. The Supreme Kai who is charged with overseeing the timelines. They are structred in a way that they mirror those points in time, but without risking change to them. It prevents splintering timelines, while also preventing those involved from suffering lasting damage. Changes revert back once they are over, thanks to the Supreme Kai of Time’s careful watch. In effect it is more like... one losing a memory than one suffering the end of their life.”“Curious. That would explain why I have no recollection of Gohan, Yurin, and yourself from the trip my past.” Tapion comments.“In any case, I know how much further I need to go.” Piccolo adds in. “Before we can completely remove the Black Star Dragon Balls.”“We owe all of you for this great effort. Thank you.” Trip bows her head. “If any of you would like, I can help three of you unlock part of your hidden potential. You’ve shown that you have pure and righteous hearts.”>A. Encourage them! They could use that kind of boost!>B. Eh, their choice, let ‘em have it if they want>C. Trip, I’m curious, might you be able to bring out any more or my hidden potential?>D. Something else?
>>3530086>A. Encourage them! They could use that kind of boost!
>>3529906>D. Trip, when someone leaves forever, is it more important where they end up, or how we remember them?
Rolled 4, 17, 12 = 33 (3d20)Hmm...
>>3530086>B,.>D. It's up to you, but I think that the only one who can truly bring out your potential is yourself through hard work and determination. (That's what She does, anyhow...)
Rolled 13, 4, 14 = 31 (3d20)And one more...
Rolled 9, 18, 12 = 39 (3d20)And last one.
>>3530086“Ultimately it’s your guys’ choice, but I’d say go for it. It’ll help you all get a let up on whatever challenges you have ahead.” you encourage.Tapion, Minotia, and Zarid all look at one another. They nod and agree to it. Trip gets to work unlocking each fighter’s hidden potential. Tapion, you sense his power increase substantially. He’s nearly doubled it. If you had to put a number, it’d be at least around 5 million. Minotia seems to boost up to about half Tapion’s strength when he’s done. And lastly, Zarid gets substantially stronger as well. Maybe about half as strong as Yurin is at her absolute best.You all say your goodbyes, and head off again, Zarid flying off on the Nimbus. “Man, was weird seeing all those people there. Mrs. Arale is as strong as I remember.”“Some had fairly interesting techniques.” Tapion adds. “It may be worth trying to learn from what we all saw in that final confrontation.”“And those villains the Phantom summoned, were they all ones you faced, Gohan?” Minotia asks.“Not all of them.” Zarid comments. “One I faced... it looked a bit like Dodongadon.”“...Dodongadon?” the three of you repeat.“A large, one-eyed reptillian creature with two mouths. One at the front, and a gigantic one on the back of his head. Sachie and I faced him once before. Apparently he’d been a bit of a trouble-maker in Penguin Village in the past. Some of his kind also ended up causing trouble elsewhere, last I heard.” Zarid rubs his chin. “Oh! He also somehow could fire missiles from his mouth.”“The fact that I know you’re not making that up just makes me wonder how bizarre Penguin Village can get.” you sigh out. “Any others that you noticed like that?”“Some, but they didn’t really do much against us. Still, was fun fighting along so many different kinds of heroes.” The young man grins at you. “And friends.”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wOLQ17RB2V0>GOHAN AND ZARID SOCIAL LINK 2: COMPLETE!>GOHAN AND TAPION SOCIAL LINK 3: COMPLETE!>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST KAI #16 END.>Twitter account is @KatoQm, will have status updates there>Got some questions for the QM?

This Quest couldn’t have made it this long without all of your efforts. I’ll be around for a bit for some questions if y’all have any. Did y’all have fun?
>>3530198Great thread Kato! Thanks for running and putting up with us for so long! You're the best!
>>3530198Good thread, Kato. Great idea and an epic doing.
>>3530198The more he says we're friends the less I believe him. Thanks for running!
>>3530198Thank you Kato. I've learned so much from you in these past four years about Dragon Ball and it's lore alone that I'm thankful I just got to be apart of the ride. You've been an inspiration, but you're also more then that. You're a friend, a mentor, and most importantly you put up with all our nonsense. So from the bottom of my heart. Thank you Kato, thank you so much for running Tuffle Quest. To another four years!
>>3531040>most importantly you put up with all our nonsense.No, she does not.
>>3530198Finally caught up. Good thread, Kato. And thanks for running for so long.
>>3530234>>3530250>>3530803>>3531040>>3534222Thank you, anons! It's been such a long time since I started this, and I'm glad I could make something y'all enjoy. Your words mean a lot to me, and I'll say again, I wouldn't be able to do this without all of you.Going forward, I would like to know if there are any other things y'all are looking forward to, plans for the Tuffle Trio, characters you would like to spend more time with, or just anything in general that you'd like to bring up. Also in general, if there are any things y'all would like out of how I run these quests, both Tuffle Quest and Secret Princess.One last reminder, I will not be running this Friday but I will be running next Friday, and we will be back with Peppa again.
>>3530198>>3536928Good thread. It has been quite a wild ride getting this far, but it's been worth it. You've helped reignite my interest in the series back when it was waning, and even if I'm not usually able to participate the threads I always enjoy catching up on them.Going forward I would definitely like some more time with Izumi, I still think she's a bit of a breakout given how different she is from not just Peppa and Gohan, but even Maple. But I also enjoy our threads with Peppa too, and this one with Gohan was pretty cool. Would like to spend some more time with Goku as well, don't want him to be left out of the fun, and also Baozi and Daikon.How about you, Kato? Anything that would make running easier for you? And glad that what you were dealing with has been cleared up.
>>3536928I wanna do Angry's Hakkero idea for Izumi. Have her study Annin's furnace, etc. etc. Despite our differences, I still recognize it as a good idea. Gohan needs to restore RAINBOW! I will never forgive Dabura. NEVER! But I was happy Gohan got his own little Shonen Jump Adventure...As for Peppa? Well if we can visit that high gravity Z-named world, that'd be fun...
>>3536928Peppa and Cocoa movie date when?
>>3536928I don't think Gohan's all that different from Peppa other than being inferior in his agency, so I just wanna see him become a game designer, or maybe deliver milk like one time. Even though he stopped the genie this time, he couldn't do so on his own, and it was up to Trip getting out a bigger fish more than anything. The rest of it was a bunch of useless fights showing how far he had come compared to the foes of years ago. So what if he beat the Broly of then if he can't do so now? Gohan will never be able to become truly strong if he keeps comparing his power against others this way.
>>3536928Just so you know, Kato, I'm fairly sure none of us agree with >>3547584Just because he has given up on Gohan doesn't mean the rest of us have. Personally I think Gohan should spend some more time with his dad, be it training or some other bonding. Maybe Vegeta too, I don't get the impression Vegeta really dislikes him as much as he does Peppa.
>>3549408Anon, what is Strength in your opinion?
>>3538041>>3538690>>3540373>>3547584>>3549408Thank you for the feedback, everyone. New thread tomorrow, back to Peppa. Hope to see y'all there!
