Peppa decided to spend some time having a beach day with friends. However, a near attack by a shark led to her and friends happening upon a very unusual sight: a corpse belonging to someone who looks like Krillin. Meanwhile, Izumi teamed up with Sachie, Zarid, 19, and even Yajirobe to explore some strange ruins deep in a forest, encountering bizarre Magical knights watching over a chaotic wellspring of arcane power. Her group isn’t alone though, as a band of dinosaurs seem to also be seeking out the Magics hidden in the ruins. Will Izzy be able to secure the trio of artifacts before the Magics of the place overwhelm her? Good luck, Izzy! Good luck, Gohan! Good luck, Peppa!
>>4059502https://youtu.be/WMlAJ5CHJM0The gaze of the magical knight stays locked to you. He’s clearly acknowledging you, though curiously he… seems to be considering its options. As he does though, you see the blue glow around the triceratops become a deeper shade… then gain a slight purple tint. “Hahahaha! Scared stiff? Didn’t think I had it in me?! I’m no simpleton, and you’ll regret underestimating me, Knight!”“YOU CANNOT BEGIN TO COMPREHEND THE POWER YOU WEILD.” the knight retorts. “EVEN NOW YOU ARE BEING CORRUPTED BY IT.”The green glow seems to grow stronger in your hand. The air continues to shimmer with power. Sachie, Zarid, and even 19 start to feel it, and the other dinosaurs move back to give their leader some space. Well Izzy, what’ll you do now?>A. Jump into the fray before the triceratops unleashes something he can’t control>B. Stay back for now, be ready to defend yourself against the other dinosaurs>C. Spirit Bits around your friends, keep them protected!>D. Something else?
>>4059504>B. Stay back for now, be ready to defend yourself against the other dinosaurs>C. Spirit Bits around your friends, keep them protected!Good luck today Kato.
>>4059504>A. Jump into the fray before the triceratops unleashes something he can’t control>D. Tell the knight that we understand there is to be a challenge, but first we'll take care of the unworthy threat.

>>4059504You let your aura surge around you, bringing your Spirit Bits around to your friends to make sure that whatever magical effects are going on don’t start to affect them too. As you do, you walk forward confidently, still holding the shard in your hand. “Sorry to interrupt this confrontation, but looks like the two of you will have a slight change of plans.” Your aura surges up around you as you draw your own blade, the Sword of Braves pulsing as the place’s magic seems to react even more strongly to all of you.The triceratops snorts angrily, his allies turning from supportive cheers to looking over the rest of your group. “HUMAN! You come to stop us?! Come to drive us from our land?!”“Look at ‘er, boss, it’s a small one!” one of the dinosaurs hisses. “All of ‘em are, but she’s the smallest! SMALL FRY! Leave if you know what’s good for you!”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z6qqigyZtgw“IF YOU BELIVE YOU CAN HANDLE THIS POWER, YOU ARE AS MUCH A FOOL AS THIS BRUTE. EN GARDE!” The Knight declares, dashing forward and stabbing down with his sword flames enveloping it, while at the same time using his free hand to charge up a sparking surge of Lightning Magic, strangely tinted red, and blasting it out at the triceratops. You back away from the stab in time, your sword clashing against his as the Knight tries to turn the stab into a slash, as the triceratops brings his crystal forward and blocking the blast of Lightning with, surprisingly, a shield of Ice.The other dinosaurs go after your friends, an ominous, chaotic aura surrounding them as Magic surges in the air once more. Thankfully, the Spirit Bits you bring out are enough to keep your friends safe from the Magic, and the dinosaurs, while stronger than they should be, don’t give them many problems. You however find it hard to really balance everything at once. The Hero’s Barrier being brought up and down to keep yourself safe from the chaotic, arcane energies flowing through the place, the massive Knight displaying exceptional sword skills and strength, enough to keep you on your toes, and the triceratops casting Magic of his own, even dousing the Knight’s flaming sword with a blast of Water and rushing in to try and tackle the Knight down, only missing thanks to the unreal agility of the Knight’s form.(cont.)
>>4059645“You humans are all alike! You take and you take and you take, but as soon as someone tries to take back, you come rushing in to stop them!” the triceratops declares. The vines that lined the walls as you ventured further in begin to return, creeping along the walls slowly in this massive chamber. “Even a child like you, ALL ALIKE!” The blueish-purple aura surges around him again… and you feel Magic start to change… something. It… it feels like……Like when YOU enter your Mahou form!>A. Try to talk the triceratops down, you’re not here to further their problems>B. You should answer in kind! Transform!>C. Keep up the barrier and stay on the defensive, let your foes tire each other out>D. Focus on the Knight, remember what Yajirobe said about the previous one!>E.

Hey, boss. Hope you're having a great day!>>4059647>F. RAIO-TEN>C. I would say use the magic form, but the magic is still probably pretty chaotic. You know if we said all triceratops people were the same, we'd be called a racist...Goes both ways mister!

>>4059647https://youtu.be/OJ12qmGVG7UAll right. If they’re gonna play this game, you’ll show them what you can do… buuuut you’re not going to take any unnecessary risks. Leaping back, you let a sparking aura surge surround you, yelling out, “RAIO-TEN!” As you do, though, you amp up the Spirit Bits protecting your friends, saving Zarid and Sachie from a powerful and chaotic wave of magic. 19 however seems to plan for this, and holds her hands out, hands splayed open. To your surprise, and even hers a little, she’s able to take in some of that Magic.Right as you use the Raio-Ten, the Knight ignites his sword once more and sends several flaming jets of power, almost like arrows, to try and lock you down. Your increase in power though gets you to avoid them easily, even bringing his attention back to the triceratops as you dash around the room, deflecting his sword strikes with surprising grace.“HUMAN! OUT OF MY WAY! YOU WON’T STOP ME!” the triceratops roars out… body shimmering with an odd power. It is like your Mahou form, though he clearly doesn’t have anywhere near the control you do. The purple aura seems to “harden” around his body. He charges at you, and you leap to the ceiling, landing there and standing on it (gotta thank Sachie again once you’re done with this). You look down… and see that the triceratops’ body crashes through the “hardened” aura around it.(cont.)
>>4059887https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E8HY7ypKshAAnd he’s changed.His body looks like it’s wearing some kind of… oversized organic armor, purple in color, spiked and almost disturbing-looking. Large shoulder-pads on his shoulders, almost like true pauldrons, near flesh-like faulds connected to a large culet almost looking like an organic “skirt,” what… what even IS this?! He lets out a roar as he crashes into the Knight, even managing to knock his foe back. And in the center of his chest is a blueish-purple glow, coming from the crystal shard.“YOU FOOL! YOUR BODY WILL NOT BE ABLE TO HANDLE THIS KIND OF POWER!” the Knight declares. “IT ALREADY CORRUPTS YOU, CEASE THIS ELSE YOUR MIND WILL BE GONE FOREVER!”“I’LL… STOP… THE HUMANS!” the triceratops roars out again, voice deeper and increasingly unhinged.“Everyone, move back!” 19 demands, forming a barrier around herself… that gains a surge of electricity. She tackles into the other dinosaurs, stunning all of them with… actual Lightning Magic! Way to go, 19! “Sachie, Zarid, Yajirobe, bring them out of here before they end up like that one.” she points to the transformed triceratops.“No need to tell me twice!” Yajirobe calls back, grabbing several of them and rushing out the doorway.“Better idea!” Sachie yells out, creating several copies of herself, all of them dragging the remaining dinosaurs.The triceratops and knight continue to battle. You’ve got the power advantage, but you can feel that the more you let out, the stronger the feedback in this place gets. Vines slither along the walls like demented serpents, the red aura of the Knight surges higher, flames and sparks erupting from his golem mech’s armor, the chaotic purple aura of the transformed triceratops like a raging flame.>A. Keep letting them tire each other out! Stay on the defensive!>B. You can’t afford dragging this out any longer, take them both down, quick!>C. The corrupted triceratops is the biggest concern, focus on him and try to heal his corrupted body!>D. Bring down the Knight, with all your strength!>E. Playtime’s over! Transform!>F. Something else?
>>4059893>F. More vines! Greeeeeennn...
>>4059893Is the ki we're sensing anything like what we feel like what happened to Vegeta at the tournament?>C. >E.>F. Use the shard we have.

Rolled 9, 17, 6 = 32 (3d20)>>4059959>>4059960>>4059964WELL. Passed all, if with difficulty! Writing...
>>4059893https://youtu.be/lRR8mwdW1_8Okay. You’ve got to deal with this, and quick. The longer the triceratops is like that, the worse it’s going to get. You let go of the ceiling and declare in midair, “HENSHIN! YUUSSHHAAAAAAA!” As you transform… the crystal in your hand seems to react to it. A stronger surge of energy than normal surrounds you, your emerald aura erupting with arcane might. The triceratops and Knight continue to clash, though the Knight clearly notices your transformation.He leaps away as you land, and your whole body feels like it’s struggling to keep everything together. You look down and see the shard embedded in your armor, power flowing from it… and into it from your surroundings. Another surge of power washes over, powering up the transformed triceratops even more than before. From his horns, frigid blasts of water jet forth in near random directions, the Knight using a shield of flame to keep it from hitting him, his blazing sword surging with power once more.One of the stray jets ends up headed towards Zarid and Sachie, the two avoiding the worst of it but still getting knocked away, the chaotic power causing the both of them to struggle to stand. Sparks jet from Zarid’s body, and a strange, reddish-orange aura starts to glow around Sachie. 19’s able to avoid it, and takes in more of that surge of Magical power, then stands the ongoing battle and your friends. She forms a barrier and gives you a nod. She’s got them covered.You dash in front of the triceratops as it attempts to smash down at the ground, freezing it and sending jagged pillars of ice up. As it approaches you, though, you hold your hand out. “You need to stop!” In trying to counter Ice with Ice, you end up unintentionally mixing in Wind Magic. The shard glows brighter, and you even push back the frigid blast. 19’s barrier keeps it from bringing harm to her, Sachie, and Zarid, thankfully.“HUUUUUMMMMAAAAAAANNNN!” he yells out, strange watery forms starting to flow around him. His feet lift into the air, and he launches towards you, the water turning into jets helping propel him forward. You put your sword back in its sheath, then bring both hands forward. Okay Izzy. Like with Baby’s nanomachines. Like what you saw on that show. The triceratops charges to you…(cont.)
>>4060277https://youtu.be/z25lFn_sz5oAnd you catch him by the horns. Your feet dig into the ground. The shard in your armor glows brighter, the one in the triceratops’ armor doing the same, both of them ending up in a positive feedback loop. It’s going to keep making your foe stronger. You NEED to stop this! Now! You let out a ferocious yell, giving a surge of Magic to try and force this corruption out. It takes almost all your strength… but you’re able to finally force the Magic out! A brilliant flash of energy fills the room.The Magical surges still, for a moment.The triceratops falls, unconscious, but alive.The glowing blue shard hovers where he stood… and jets right into your armor.You gasp and fall to your knees as you feel an overwhelming surge of power enter into your body. The emerald green aura surges higher. You… you feel like your body’s going to tear apart. Your armor glows, almost pulsing with power. Need to… need to keep your mind under control… agh… AGH…“MAHOU.” the Knight’s voice calls to you. “IT HAS BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE I HAVE SEEN ONE OF YOUR KIND.” He stomps closer towards you. “YOU BELIEVE YOU CAN TAKE HOLD OF THIS POWER? LOOK AT YOURSELF. YOU BARELY HAVE CONTROL OF THIS POWER.”“I… I promised…” you manage to breathe out. “I promised… to fix this…”“TO ACCESS THIS POWER, YOU NEED A FORM THAT CAN WITHSTAND IT.” His golem mech’s fist taps its chest. “YOU WILL END UP LIKE THE DUMB BRUTE AT THIS RATE, TURNING INTO A MONSTER, CORRUPTED AND MINDLESS. YOU NEED -POWER-, MAHOU.”>A. Fine, show me how to make something like your form, Knight>B. I’ll take hold of this on my own! I’ll stop this and help calm the chaos in this place!>C. 19! Get the dinosaur out of here, before he gets hurt!>D. Something else?
>>4060280>A. Fine, show me how to make something like your form, Mister... Miss Knight? Can't tell.
>>4060280>A.>D.Draw on the tranquil emotions that empower Kaio-Ken and Raio-Ken.
>>4060302Wisdom is listening before conceiving.
>>4060280>B & C.Show courage, but also concern for adversaries.
>>4060298Alright. I'll rescind my write-in and instead ask Mr. Knight if tranquil emotions are the way to go.
>>4060316I'll support C. No need to have a dino-man laying around to trip over.
>>4060320Seconded, but we should consider that we're powered by Courage and not lose sight of that in seeking tranquility.

>>4060280You force yourself to stand. “19! G-get… get that dinosaur out of here…!” you call out to her, struggling to point to the unconscious triceratops. “Before… before he ends up hurt…” She looks to you hesitantly, clear worry on her normally neutral face. But she gives you an affirming nod, and quickly bolts towards him and brings him out of the chamber. Zarid tries to help Sachie to her feet as the waves of chaotic power calm.“YOU WOULD SHOW MERCY TO SUCH A FOOL?” the Knight questions you, flaming sword pointed at you.“He doesn’t… deserve any more punishment than this failure.” You end up needing to stab the Sword of Braves into the ground and bracing yourself against it to keep yourself standing as you continue to feel the Magic surge through your body. It feels like your skin’s about to split open and then ignite, the emerald aura around you surging higher. Agh. Everything hurts. “And you… your attention’s supposed to be on me, isn’t it?!”He looks down curiously at you. “YOU KNOW NOTHING OF WHAT WILL BE DEMANDED OF YOU. YOU LACK THE WISDOM, THE POWER, TO HANDLE THIS ON YOUR OWN. YOU WOULD NEED A FORM LIKE THIS TO EVEN HOPE TO HOLD ON TO THAT STRENGTH.”“F-fine… if that’s what it takes… show me…” You grip the sword tight, legs wobbling. “Show me… what I need to hold on to a form like that. Do I need tranquil emotions to keep hold of it all, is that it?”“LEARNING TO STEEL YOUR MIND WILL HELP YOU DISPLAY THE WISDOM YOU NEED. BUT THAT IS NOT ALL.” The Knight’s sword lowers. “YOU WILL NEED TO CHANNEL THE MAGICS INTO A FORM FIT FOR THEM. THIS POWER IS A STEP BEYOND WHAT YOUR BODY CAN SUSTAIN. IF YOU WISH TO TRULY TAKE HOLD, CHANNEL THE MAGIC INTO A FORM FITTING SUCH POWER.” His golem mech’s fist hits its chest again. “AS WE ONCE DID TO HOLD BACK THE ENEMIES OF MAN. DO THAT, MAHOU, AND YOU WILL SHOW YOU HAVE THE POWER YOU NEED TO TAKE CONTROL.”…He wants you to make something like THAT? Can… can you even do that? …You do make this armor when you transform. Well. Principle behind it is… basically the Clothes Beam…>A. All right, give it your best shot! Make something like his!>B.

>>4060708>>4060712Bah fine I'll change my vote to C, but I'd like to add that it should be at least a bit noble looking.

>>4060770Yeah yeah. Stick with C, use that kind of design.
>>4060770More or less, if you want to do something similar I'll be into that. Not entirely sold on the wings.
>>4060719We can do a prettier sword if you'd like, but I still would prefer the grub mecha for now. Our transformations still have a ways to go.Or I dunno. I just wanna win I guess.
>>4060770I'm down except for the overelaborate wingalings.
>>4060770No, I still prefer the original C.
>>4060774>>4060777>>4060779>>4060785Okay, looks like the votes are going with that 4-1.Also thought that design seemed familiar.Anyway, finally writing!
Are Cheelai and Leemo short or is Broly just tall? How many Gokus are they?
>>4060588https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7j1P2t_wcHsThe image starts to take form in your mind. You look over the body of the golem mech the Knight is in. How it’s shaped, how it has slightly organic takes mixed in with what looks like stone, yet not quite either. Sort of… beetle-like, yet still its own thing. In your mind’s eye, you flash through the growth cycle of such an insect. From grub to full bug. You’ve… you’ve got it. You’ve got it! You let out a ferocious yell and pull it up from the ground. You’ll take control of this magic! You WILL calm it, then make it your own!Your body floats upward as a swirl of emerald energy surrounds you and structures begin to take shape. You take the slightly insect-like design and modify it, using what bits you think make it coherent. You take a slightly grub-like form initially, making sure there’s enough room for your body to fit into, and giving it your own spin. More… knightly in demeanor. A pointed chest to give your own body more protection. Some more organic-looking, flexible bits around the torso and limbs to give it better maneuverability. Some wings to help it maneuver in air. Some armor around the waist and legs, make sure it’s decently protected. Extra material around the shins, and legs, help manage the weight distribution. Aaaaand for just some added flair, a jointed “ponytail” of sorts to go with the crown-like spikes on the head.…Monoeye? Eeeeehhh… those are cool but nah. Maybe not as many as the Knight’s has. Keep it the normal 2. And last touch, colors. Green, with a golden trim, and a deep purple for the pseudo-ogranic material on the waist, limbs, and joints. You take a moment to gauge your surroundings with the thing. You can see outside it, though it’s… not quite what you expect from some shows you’ve seen. Heck, even from some actual ones you’ve been in. Much more… well, arcane’s probably the best word for it. It’s like it’s feeding right into your senses. You’re braced against the torso cavity’s back, limbs are decently protected, and not too cramped. No… real “controls” to speak of, at least not in the traditional sense. It’s more you manipulating it through your Magic.(cont.)
>>4060954…Your Magic. You finally realize that it’s calmed. You look down again and see the two shards side by side in a sort of V-shape on your chest armor. No longer chaotic and wild. Calmed. You can’t help but smile.“MAHOU.” the Knight addresses you. “YOU HAVE SURPRISED ME. YOU SHOW THE CAPABILITY TO PRODUCE SUCH ARMOR.”“Heh… eheh…” Okay head’s a little woozy. “Do you… believe me now?”“YOU WILL BE GIVEN ONE FINAL TEST. TO PUT TO REST THE CHAOS THAT FLOWS THROUGH THESE HALLS.” You see him… tap his chest once more, then pull out the glowing red crystal shard. “ARE YOU READY?”>A. I’m ready, just tell me what you need me to do>B. What happens to you? Will you fade like the guardian of the green shard?>C. One thing. You call me Mahou. Tell me, what do you know about that? Just answer that and I’ll help>D. Maybe… maybe lemme get a break first, I’m feeling really drained>E. Something else?
>>4060958>A, with a touch of>C, but don't make it a condition, just a request.

>>4060958https://youtu.be/-WmT0im8yNo“Just… just one thing I’d like to ask, while I still have the time, sir Knight.” You take a moment to make sure you’re able to get the “controls” understood. “You call me Mahou. You clearly know what that is. Before I accomplish this task you ask of me, can you please tell me, what… is the history with that term, for your people? How do you know it, how do you know I’m one?”He seems almost confused. “YOU HAVE THIS POWER YET YOU SEEM TO KNOW SO LITTLE ABOUT IT.”“Whatever they were, I’m probably one of the first in a very, very long time.” you explain. “I happened upon this power on my own. I didn’t even know what it was called until a Demon called me it.”The flames on his sword vanish. “…I SEE. THEN I SHALL TELL YOU A TALE, GIRL. MANY EONS BEFORE YOUR TIME, THERE EXISTED THOSE TRULY SKILLED IN MAGIC. HUMANS, MAGES AND WARRIORS THAT WOULD USE THEIR MAGIC TO EMPOWER THEMSELVES. WE KNIGHTS USE POWER LEARNED FROM THEM TO PROTECT HUMANITY FROM THE DEMONS AND MONSTERS WHO THREATENED THE WORLD. THE MAHOU WERE OFTEN WOMEN LIKE YOURSELF. AS WE MADE THE WORLD SAFE, OUR POWER WAS NOT NEEDED.”Well. Definitely not what you expected. “So, you won your war against the enemies of mankind, and came here to… retire?”(cont.)
>>4061177He walks toward you slowly. “IN TRUTH, IT WAS DANGEROUS TO THE COMMON FOLK. LEFT UNCHECKED, IT WOULD BRING ONLY RUIN. OUR ENTOMBMENT HERE WAS TO GUARANTEE THAT SUCH MAGIC COULD NOT FALL INTO THE WRONG HANDS. HEROES OF COURAGE, WISDOM, POWER, ALL SET TO WATCH OVER THIS REMNANT OF A BYGONE ERA. THIS POWER WOULD ONLY GROW STRONGER FROM THOSE WHO WOULD SEEK IT, MAGIC OVERFLOWING IF NOT KEPT IN CHECK. FOOLS LIKE THAT BRUTE COULD NOT HOPE TO HANDLE SUCH ANCIENT POWER.” He shows you the crystal shard. You can notice the vines still creeping along the tiles, even if they’ve slowed. “YOU HAVE SHOWN YOU CAN. ARE YOU READY?”You nod. “I’m ready. And I’ll ensure that such power doesn’t fall into the wrong hands. You have my word.”“I WILL HOLD YOU TO THAT.” He gives you the shard. His golem mech fades, and his body falls to the ground. The red glow surges in your own mech’s palm, reacting to the shards on your armor. It then sort of “vanishes” into your mech, only to reappear alongside the other two. The blue and red shards set flanking the green one, the trio letting out a bright flash that erupts around your armor, and then your mech. Agh. AGH. Th-there’s that pain again. Not as much as before, but god does it feel like every muscle aches, every centimeter of skin like a thousand gnats biting it, even your hair feels like it’s being pulled on.But you won’t let this stop you. You refuse to. You thrust open the mech’s arms, and your emerald aura surrounds it. Jets of Fire, flashes of Light, sparks of Lightning, splashes of Water, shards of Ice, gusts of Wind, and lastly a dark, heavy Shadow all surround the mech. And then… something else. They all harmonize into a singular pulse of power. The shimmering air loses its luster, the creeping vines stop and start to wither. The Magical power that surrounded the place… has finally calmed.…And as it does, the massive form of the mech around you vanishes as well. You fall from where you were and barely are able to muster any strength to fly. 19 has to swoop in and catch you before you hit the ground. She sets you on your feet, you making sure the Sword of Braves is back in its sheath… and you see the trio of crystal shards have reformed into one singular crystal, resting in the palm of your left hand. All right time to get out of- ow. Oww. Oowww. Legs are jelly. Can barely walk. Gotta… have 19 help you. As you approach Sachie and Zarid, you see the android girl smile. “It would seem you were successful, Izumi.”(cont.)
>>4061180You let out a pained laugh. “Y-yeah. Certainly would hope so after all that.” You look over to the skeletal form of the Knight. “…19, before we leave, let’s make sure those three can finally have their proper rest.”>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST KAI #30… 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 this this tonight! We’ll continue tomorrow starting ~4:30 pm PST. I’ll be around for a bit for questions and stuff. Did y’all have fun?
>>4061183Twas dramatic, cool and awesome. Thanks for the ride there.Question: How tall is the mech compared to Izzy? I was expecting power armor but it's clearly a bit bigger than that.
>>4061183This adventure was one of your best, up there with Backgammon.I suppose we won't need a Hakkero now with the Crystal there if it works how I'm thinking.So, how I've been playing her, Izzy has only heard the name "Legend of Zelda" and that's about it. More of a PlayStation girl. Chi-Chi keeps giving her Mature titles like GTA so her developing brain won't rot with kiddy stuff.
>>4061193>How tall is the mech compared to Izzy?
>>4061193>>4061203Around 30 feet tall.
>>4061183You're a big nerd and we all love you for that, Kato. You really show how much you can get out of things using the fantasy kitchen sink that is Dragon Ball's setting. Fun times were definitely had.
>>4061193Glad to hear! And it's large enough that she can fit in the mech's chest cavity without feeling too cramped, so around 7, 7.5 at most. In other words, no taller than 25 feet. Relatively small compared to some other mechs, but close to the norm for ones in Dragon Ball.>>4061199Glad you had fun. Also anyone wants to put up some little details like that, feel free.>>4061216Thanks anon! Glad you had fun!And now it's time for me to collapse. Goodnight everyone.
>>4061222Another question for when you wake up: how big is the crystal? Could we inset into a necklace or something else we can wear casually without destroying the item when we transform?
You know this isn't the first crystal that can channel power that we've encountered....

>>4061828Small enough to fit in the palm of Izzy's hand. Could wear it on something.>>4062331Indeed you have.And okay, we are back!>>4061183https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c2FesrskB_gYou finally leave the ruins after putting the trio of Knights to rest. Body is still very drained, but it’s finally all over. The crystal’s still in your hand. As you leave, though, you see Yajirobe swatting at some fairies pestering him. “Hey! HEY! Knock it off!”“Do… do I even want to ask?” you mutter out.“I’ve learned it’s better not to. Go with the flow.” Zarid sighs out. “Hey, Sachie, when we got hit by that wave of Magic, did you-” He turns his head to where she was, you doing the same. She’s not there.“Hold still, I’ve got a bottle!” Sachie yells out, running at Yajirobe. That gets the fairies’ attention, and the one who’d spoken to you before looks back, almost shocked.“...Mahou. You… you did it.” her tiny voice almost squeaks. “These… ruins. They’ve calmed.”>A. All in a day’s work! Also could you stop bothering him please?>B. So, what should we do about the dinosaurs?>C. I need to get this to someone who can check it out, quick>D. Something else?
>>4062764>A. All in a day’s work! Also could you stop bothering him please?>B. So, what should we do about the dinosaurs?>D. Briefly describe what you did and what the situation was, ask how much they knew about it. >E. Sachie, do not bottle the fairies.
>>4062764>D. With the ruins calmed, care to tell me more of what you know about my abilities?
>>4062764>A. All in a day’s work! Also could you stop bothering him please?>B. So, what should we do about the dinosaurs?>D. Ooh, save me one!
>>4062764>A"I couldn't have done it without my friends. Sachie and 19 are just as Mahou as me.">B. "We still got King Triceratops to talk too.">C. MELCHIOR! And possibly Konpei too!>D. "Did...Yajirobe eat one of you?"
>>4062764>>4062810On that A,>"They're mahous too."
>>4062823This line is terrible in the greatest way and must be uttered.
>>4062764“Eheh heh… a-all in a day’s work.” you reply to the fairy. “In truth I couldn’t-” Sachie keeps trying to bottle the fairies. “…Sachie please don’t bottle them.”She looks back at you. “Why not?”“It’s rude. And you’ve only got one bottle.” you explain. Her eyes look down at the bottle and she seems to ponder on something for a moment, a few of the fairies she was bothering starting to fly around her, buzzing and tugging at her. “Saaaachie.”“Okaaaaay, okaaaaay…” She waves her hand and heads back.“Ahem. I couldn’t have done this without some help from my friends. Heck, Sachie and 19? They’re mahous too.”Zarid snorts. “Well. A way to phrase it. Also hi, still here.”You flinch. “S-sorry. You, uh, know what I mean.”The fairy seems confused. “…No they aren’t. All of you have Magic, but only you-” the fairy points right at you, “-are Mahou. I can feel it.”“Okay, gonna have some questions on that in a bit, but first…” You look to Yajirobe again. “Can, uh, you stop pestering him please?”“He knows what he did.” she growls.You gasp, then ask quietly, “Did… did he eat… one of…?”“I DIDN’T EAT ANY OF THESE FLYING TOOTHPICKS!” Yajirobe yells out. “I don’t remember nuthin’ you pests would be mad about!”“You stole from us, samurai!” the fairy yells in an almost squeaking voice. You have to force yourself not to giggle. “Took what was ours!”The fairies around him start to chant “Thief! Thief!” over and over. Zarid finds this curious. “What did he take from you, exactly?”“Our dust!” they shout at him in unison.You blink, then repeat, “Dust.”“Dust.” Zarid repeats as well, flatly.“Duuuuust~” Sachie draws out in a kinda sing-song tone.Yajirobe is bewildered for a moment. He then snaps his fingers. “You mean that really good spice I found when I was 13?”(cont.)
>>4063125The fairies start shouting angrily and incoherently at him. You facepalm. Zarid pinches the ridge of his nose. Sachie starts to laugh. 19 brings up the obvious question, “Do you still have it?”“Well yeah!” Yajirobe states. “I only put it on the really tasty meats. Gotta savor it.”The fairy that was in front of you bolts at him and grabs his gi, shaking it with strength you didn’t think something so small could muster. “GIVE IT BACK GIVE IT BACK GIVE IT BAAAAACK!”“Okay, okay, jeeze! I’ll tell Korin we need to give it up.”With that finally calming them down, you start to explain all that happened in there with the Knights, and further, what happened to the (thankfully still unconscious) triceratops guy and his cohorts. You ask the fairy who spoke to you before if that was why she warned you away from that place, the fairy confirming so. Which leads to the last question you have for them, “You want to tell me more about how you know so much about these abilities?”“Long ago, our kind helped those who would fight against monsters like the Makyans and Demons and the like. We would help them channel their power, help them utilize it better. Guides, in a sense. A Mahou like you though seems like you are beyond the ability of any of us to guide further, given you could calm what we couldn’t.”“Heh, thanks.” You think, at least. Guide might be helpful. Oh well. Maybe you could ask Yosei? Questions for later. At least feeling in your legs is returning, though you still feel drained. “So. Anyone have an idea on what to do with the dinosaurs?”Yajirobe is about to speak, only for 19 to interrupt him, “Their King will probably send for them at some point. Best not to have a certain individual eat any of them.”“I wasn’t gonna…” Yajirobe grumbles.“They still were rather violent.” Zarid points out. “But did they do anything… well, illegal?”“Eh, we’re not the kinds of people who should be dealing with this.” Sachie comments. “Maybe give some warnings to the folks who DO handle this kinda thing though.”“That’s… rather astute.” Zarid comments.You look to the crystal in your hand. “Well, I should get this checked out, and quick…” Hmm, but where to?>A. Melchior, see what he’s got to say about it>B. Aunt Maple might be able to help, plus she’d love to hear about all this>C. Check back with mom and dad, they might know what to do>D. Maybe Trip would know about this stuff>E. Something else?
>>4063127>D. Maybe Trip would know about this stuff>E. We also should talk to her about alternative sorts of magic to plan our power growth into. We were warned not to just do elements, and she's probably familiar with more than healing and buddah magic.
>>4063127>B.>C.>D.Have Maple and Trip look over it first, spend some time with Sachie, Zarid, and 19 while they look into it. We can head to them later.
>>4063186...bah. Should be B, D, E.Sorry.
>>4063127>C.>E. I do have a kingdom, if their kingdom is in trouble they could stay at ours or ask for assistance, either way we'll gain a favor, mueheheheh...
>>4063186I say we contact maple first about what we've found and learned so she can research her book, and head to Trip's.Voting against leaving the crystal anywhere, ever.
>>4063198Sure, that works.
>>4063198E. Eat it.
>>4063201Cool.>>4063191If a bit less conniving, I'll support playing the statesmanship card. Probably let our parents take care of the details though.
>>4063127>>4063208>>4063212Okaaaaaay.>E. I have a kingdom, maybe they and theirs can take refuge for a while or we could help them with those thugs. Heck, maybe we could train them to fend off the thugs, just like that heroic movie: A Bug's Life.
>>4063127>[You hold the crystal up. “Hmm… I think it’d be best to have aunt Maple look over this, she’s probably got something in her book that can help. Ms. Trip might be able to help too. Maybe we can meet up with her there?”“That sounds like a sensible idea.” 19 comments.“Yeah I gotta head back to Korin, apparently these toothpicks are rather- OW! I’ll get it, I’ll get it, jeeze!” Yajirobe grumbles, getting a Capsule out.“And these?” Zarid points to the dinosaurs.You tap your chin. “Grandpa’s kingdom could probably help them with the bandits they’re facing… maybe give them some place of refuge while their bandit problem is sorted out?”“You wish to help them?” 19 questions.“I mean, Zarid’s right, not exactly doing anything illegal. Plus… well, we can show them that not all humans are bad.” you explain. “Bit of kindness goes a long way.” Plus maybe train ‘em to fend off the thugs on their own. Like that movie where... wait a second. “Oh, one more thing!” You give a polite curtsy. “Thank you for your help. Best wishes, kind fairies.” You then bolt over to Yajirobe’s car. “I call shotgun!”Sachie snaps her fingers. “Dang, I wanted shotgun…”(cont.)
>>4063392https://youtu.be/pVfHW7C9BG4You explain what you went through to Maple, then check in with mom, dad, and grandpa on the dinosaur situation. Finally you get in contact with Trip as you all head back to Korin’s Tower, leaving Yajirobe and heading up to the Lookout. When you arrive, you see her and Mr. Popo waiting for you. You can sense Yosei and the space lemurs deeper within. The blue-haired Kami gives a polite nod and smile. “Izumi. It is good to see you again, and your friends as well. Zarid, Sachie, 19, thank you all for your help before.”“Thank you, ma’am.” Zarid bows his head back.“So, filled you in on what went down, but here’s the actual crystal itself.” You hold out your hand, letting her look at it. “Had to make that construct… mech… thing in order to utilize it properly and finally calm the Magic down there. I can still feel a substantial amount of energy within it, just… dormant, I guess.”“Very curious. I had no idea such relics still lingered.” Mr. Popo comments.“You mentioned that you had to heal the corrupted triceratops in order to obtain the second shard, correct?” Trip questions, and you nod in response. “How exactly did you heal him?”“I kinda had to force it out like I did with Baby’s nanomachines. Just sorta… pumped Magic through them to force it out.” You rub the back of your neck shyly. “I’ve… been having some ideas from this… ahem… show I’ve watched with Pantea on how to make it less of a ‘brute force’ push and more a specific kind of… well, healing.”Trip smiles. “I can help you learn, if that is what you’re asking. What specifically is your goal here?”>A. I’d like a more direct way to remove corrupting powers from people, using my Magic>B. Honing my powers and expanding my skillset beyond just using the Elements amplified by my Mahou form>C. Learning to better control my Magic in general, especially with this kind of new responsibility I’ve been entrusted with>D. Something else?
>>4063394>B. Honing my powers and expanding my skillset beyond just using the Elements amplified by my Mahou form Also a bit of >A.It's probably important but not a priority, as we're managing with what we have so far and its not likely to come up all that often. It'll probably be a lot easier to pick up after mastering non-elemental power anyway.
>>4063394>B.>D. Learn to control the magic within us, and defend from these kind of surges and manipulation of our magic.
>>4063409That's basically C. I'll add a vote that we ask for some advice on that end, but do the training ourselves later. It's expanding the skillset that we really need help with.
>>4063394>D. Wat this crystal do?
>>4063394>B.Main focus here. However, want C, but phrase C. as asking her what she thinks would help Izzy best, specifically with the crystal. A. is good too, but B. is most important. Also:>D.Ask her what she could do to help Sachie, Zarid, and 19.
>>4063394https://youtu.be/3be1Sm-qwyk“In truth, I want to hone my powers and expand my skillset beyond what I’ve just been doing in my Mahou form. There’s more to Magic than just the Elements I’ve been using in it.” You look at the crystal again, bringing your hand down. “Ms. Trip, what do you think I should do to gain better control of my Magic? Especially with this new responsibility I’ve been tasked with. I want to make sure I do those Knights right, keep something like this from falling into the wrong hands, but not let it go unused and eventually run wild.” You rub the back of your neck. “I think learning some way to heal things from corruption without brute forcing it would be a good start, but I want your advice.”Trip nods understandingly. “Using Magic to heal is a good way to start, but I have some other things that may help you look to that ultimate goal. The skills I have learned, and what I have shown to Maple, Chi-chi, Tien, and more, work to counter the Magic demons have used to corrupt and empower things. I offer those skills only if you wish to learn, though if you desire improving your skills with Magic specifically, I suggest looking into ways you can share your power with others.”“Share it?” you ask.She nods. “This will help you learn to better utilize your Magic in general. If you can learn to grant others boons through your Magic, you will be able to manage it to a far greater degree overall.”“So, healing, and boosting others, huh…?” you wonder aloud, then looking back to your friends. “Oh! One more thing. Do you have anything for them?” You motion to Zarid, Sachie, and 19. “I don’t wanna take up all your time, and I think they could gain a lot from your advice.”(cont.)
>>406355519 looks thankful, but doubtful. “I am not sure what I could learn from her, Izumi. My body, though modified and now capable of growth and self-modification, is still artificial.”Trip walks to the android girl. “Perhaps it is not technique you need help with, though. What do you work towards, Number 19?”She at first looks like she knows the answer, but then 19 starts to think on it. “…I would guess that is a complicated topic. There are… things I want to do, but a longer term goal is very nebulous to me.”“We can discuss it, if you wish.” Trip motions for her to walk with. “Sachie, Zarid, how about the both of you?”Finally, Maple teleports in with a large tome in her hands. “Sorry that took so long! Just had to help Krillin deal with his clone’s corpse, had to hop back home to get this.” She rubs her head. “Was not what I was prepared for today.”“Ah no it’s fi-WAIT WHAT?”>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST KAI #30… 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 this this tonight! We’ll continue tomorrow starting ~5:30 pm PST. I’ll be around for a bit for questions and stuff. Did y’all have fun?
>>4063556>“Ah no it’s fi-WAIT WHAT?”Did Trip's Charisma break?
>>4063556Fun was indeed had. Looking forward, it seems that if we want to spec into support we'll need to start with healing, and branch into more of whatever counts as life magic. Infusing that with power and enchantments follows. Is this not terribly off?>>4063567I think that's Izzy's reaction.
>>4063556Some genuine support skills! Izzy really would benefit a lot from that. Fun definitely had, Kato, thanks for running!
>>4063556Good times achieved. Thanks!
>>4063556I passed out hard last night but happy to see things resolved. Hm. So clone wise. That sounds like tech from Jaguar's place. Do we know where the scientists who worked there went? If we were smart, we would've employed them into Capsule Corp.
>>4063737Or sent them to jail.
>>4063952Look, the rockets go up, ja? Where they come down is not the scientist's department.
I wonder Izumi/Frypan could take more villages/kingdoms as vassals via enrolling them in training and eventually Border Gore the World into becoming Queen of it? Sure, there can be only one King of Earth, but nothing about no Queen of Earth.Teach Coco's Village how to Ki -> WORLD DOMINATION, AHAHA.wav

>>4064085This historical fiction unfortunately plays upon the flawed conclusion that Germans have a sense of humor. This not being the case, the entire premise is destroyed.
>>4063568>>4063576>>4063585>>4063737Glad y'all had fun!>Life MagicNot "specifically" that, but a decent way to think about it. Though there are some abilities related to what could be classified under that description. Like some things Moro is capable of.>Jaguar's scientistsSome more notorious ones were arrested, most have gone into some form of retirement, few would want to work at Capsule Corp.And okay, sorry about the delay! We are back!>>4063556https://youtu.be/Wvm2ZGGiyq0“Leave it to her to stumble upon a mystery while just trying to relax.” you mumble, having heard the full story from Maple. Peppa stumbling upon a clone corpse of Krillin and some sunken wreck. Your cousin’s a weirdness magnet. …Definitely gonna need her to come with you some time. Just imagine what the two of you will stumble upon! You both could get something truly amazing!“Izzy?” Maple’s voice snaps you back to reality.“I’m here, I’m here!” Focus, Izzy, focus. “Okay, so, Ms. Trip said I should try to learn how to share my Magical power with others. What do you think, aunt Maple?”“I’ve had some ideas on that before. Combination moves and the like. Though this sounds a bit more advanced…” She taps her chin as she flips through the book. “You said you were able to form this whole mech using the Magic those crystals had, right? Are you able to bring it out on command? Do you need the crystals to create it?”“I’m… honestly not entirely sure. I felt extremely exhausted after doing it, so it wasn’t JUST the crystals, and it feels sorta like my Mahou form, just… a step beyond, almost.” you explain.>A. I can try to bring it out again, if you want>B. I know you and mom have worked hard with some support skills, what can you point me towards to start with?>C. Should I work on combo moves as well? Anything you have in mind, aunt Maple?>D. Something else?

>>4065045New Mahou Materialization Gun
>>4065056Wait wait wait.Witch Craft!It's so simple but right.
>>4064993Backing >>4065016 and >>4065024>>4065058I like it.

>>4065072When we get food beam, we call it Witch Kraft.Then we make mac and cheese.
>>4064993“Aunt Maple, I know you and mom have worked on some support skills yourselves, those... Eight Path things…”“The Noble Eightfold Path, yes.” Maple nods.“So if I want to learn how to share my abilities with others, might learning how you utilize those skills be a good idea? One of the reasons I thought coming up here to talk with Trip would be wise. I don’t mean to like, learn all of ‘em, but just enough to understand what to look toward, some pointers.”Maple taps her chin curiously. “All righty. The Noble Eightfold Path is about a kind of… mindset, really. Presenting things like a declaration of some truth, and using that aspect amplified into action.”You blink. “…Oooookay.”“Eheh, I know it sounds weird at first, but more to the point, the abilities I’ve learned stem from that kind of thing, and become an outward expression of it. Samma Vaca, Right Speech, is a declaration that wards away corrupting influences, like the ones Towa is capable of. While Samma Kammanta, Right Action, works to restore and rejuvenate one’s strength, and can be declared towards others.” Maple starts flipping through the tome. “Demons are aware of similar abilities, though not quite to the same effect. Using your own Magic, you might be able to have your own take on it.”You place your elbows on your knees and rest your chin on your palms, looking down at the book. “I do also want to learn some kind of healing through Magic… if that’s possible.”“Chuu Lee was able to combine Wind Magic with healing. So it should be. Perhaps using Water Magic as a basis, or Light, maybe both. I bookmarked something about it a while back…” your aunt affirms, flipping through it more. “What else are you planning to do with it?”“Well like, sharing my Magic in some manner to… I dunno, maybe make others capable of transforming like I do?” You tap your fingers against your cheeks, then look to your aunt. You… get an idea. “The Clothes Beam seems to be the basis of my Transformation, as… odd as that might sound. Maybe I could try it with you, give you a new outfit?”She raises an eyebrow. “Maybe. What about the mech suit thing?”“I could also try bringing it out again.” You clap your hands together. “Maybe both! Really test the Clothes Beam! …Or maybe, Mahou Materialization.” You look up in thought. “…Witch Crafting?”Maple laughs. “All right. I’m willing to try.”>A. Witch Crafting Clothes Beam aunt Maple! Try this first!>B. Okay, bring out that magical battle jacket!>C. Try both at the same time!>D. Something else?Choose carefully.

>>4065178“Let’s try this first…” Aunt Maple wants to see the mech, so best give her a show! You hold up the crystal and channel your Magic through it! Here goes! Transform!…Yeah, here goes, TRANSFORM!…Uh.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_nC-EK2E0ykTransform?…Come on! Transform!You pump more Magic into the crystal, and it certainly reacts, just gotta… gotta-!-THUNK-You faceplant.“Izumi!” Maple runs to your side. “Hey, hey, you okay?”“Mmmhhh…” you groan into the ground. “Think I’m out of juice.”Maple sighs in relief, helping you sit up. You feel a bit dizzy… heh, dizzy Izzy. Maple checks your head, looking you over. “Hm. Yeah, you’re fairly drained. Might want to take some time to get some actual rest before transforming again. I doubt you could even use your Mahou form at this point.” She takes a deep breath and then seems to mutter something… and you feel some of your strength return. “That’ll help a bit, but I’d advise waiting on this for a while.”You see Sachie and Zarid walking back with Trip and 19, Zarid and Trip actually quite deep in conversation, Sachie doing her best to pay attention, while 19 seems a bit more sure of herself now.>A. I’m fine, just a bit of a slip-up there. Lemme give it one more go>B. Okay, let’s try something different: Witch Crafting Clothes Beam~!>C. Check in with your friends, see what they’re up to>D.

>>4065416>E. Talk to Maple about dinosaurs, apparently some of them are intelligent to the point that they can form nations and face oppression from humans. Has she ever encountered any like that around Mt. Paozu?
I'm so sorry, I passed out for a bit there.>>4065416You bow your head to her politely. “All right. I’m gonna take some time to rest, relax, and kinda let all this digest in my mind. I do want to work through some of this more later, aunt Maple.”“All righty Izzy!” She pats your head and the both of you stand. You can’t pretend your legs are all wobbly this time. Maple gets this weird look on her face for a moment, moving her hand to the top of her head. She then sighs.“Is something wrong?”“No. No. Just… just having to face reality.” she mumbles.“...You mean how I’m taller than you and dad?” you ask. Maple flinches cartoonishly. You try to hide your giggle. “I do mean it, I’ll take some time to work on this once I’ve rested properly.”“All right, all right. I’ll have a few things ready to try out. Hold on to that crystal of yours, we’ve got to do some analysis of it too.”“Thanks, auntie Maple, and I will.” You walk on over to Zarid, Sachie, and 19, giving them a wave. “Hey! You guys done with your stuff? What’s going on over here?”“I believe we have had a productive discussion.” Trip responds, looking over the three with her.“Yeah. I have a few things to work towards.” Zarid tells you. “Some new goals for training, and more. I think when I get back I’ll try to seek out my Earth’s Kami, and maybe look into some things from back home.”“Your home-home?” Sachie asks. “Oooh, been a while since I was last there!”“You have something to work on yourself, Ms. Momochi.” Trip mentions.She lowers her head a little. “Oooookaaaaay…” She taps her show against the stones. “Guess I do need to start checking in with Udon… if I can… hrmn.”“I have things to work towards too.” 19 tells you. “Beyond just training. I have… things I really want to do.”“Heh. Okay, let’s say we talk about all of it-”“Over lunch!” Sachie calls out. “I wanna taste some dinosaur steak still!”19 taps her chin. “…There is a famous dish over in Mifan.”The ninja girl almost bounces on her heels. “Sounds like a plan! Come on, let’s go!”>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST KAI #30… 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 this this tonight! We’ll continue tomorrow starting ~5:30 pm PST. I’ll be around for a bit for questions and stuff. Did y’all have fun?
>>4065663Yup! I really enjoyed the kazoos.I wonder if we could go to Another Earth sometime soon?
>>4065663Good times had Kato. Please get some proper rest.
>>4065663Good session Kato! Sleep well.
>>4065663Would Lime be up for helping us confirm all this knight talk? The Royal Academy of Science would be a good start and they'd have a good archive for EONS AGO.

>>4065669Glad to hear, and possibly.>>4065687>>4065693Thank you! And trying, promise.>>4066660Might be a good idea.Anyway, sorry about the delay, some stuff came up, but we are back!>>4065663“So in addition to tryin’a see what more I can do with Udon, I also want to check into some of my dad’s skills. Maybe if I get to spend another break over here I’ll see what that Yurin lady and her ninja can do. Did bring it up with Ms. Trip but… eh, she didn’t seem too enthusiastic about it.” Sachie explains as all of you sit down for food.“I did notice that seemed to be a sour spot for her.” Zarid adds in.“So, what might you be talking with your Kami about?” you ask the boy.Zarid places his hands together. “Apprenticeship.”You do a double-take. “Wait, what?”“It’s a long-term thing, really, but I want to check with him to see if it’s possible. Might take the better part of a decade or two, but it’s worth looking into, I think.” He sits back. “I’ve been recalling some things from back home that might be relevant to it, too.”“Aside from this meal, though, is there anything the two of you would like to do before heading back?” 19 questions the pair.The waitress comes by and takes your orders. Nearby though, you can sense someone strong approaching. Is… that Vegeta? Huh, he’s with some others too. Sachie and Zarid use this time to think over 19’s question. “Wwweeeeeeell… kinda.” Sachie looks over her painted nails. “But Zarid, you go first.”“Putting me on the spot, huh?” He shakes his head. “I guess there is one thing that really comes to mind. Previously, Gohan, myself, Tapion, and Minotia used the… I believe it was called the ‘Pendulum Room’ to stop this powerful demon that was trying to break free of it. I’d like one last go in there.”“Aww, now mine doesn’t sound anywhere near as cool…” Sachie mumbles.“What’s yours?” you ask.“I wanted to spend some time doin’ some shopping and makeover stuff with you.” Sachie places her elbows on the table and rests her chin on her fingers. “Also you! 19! You could come wiiiith!~”“I am… not sure about that.” the android girl responds.>A. Pendulum Room huh? Always did wanna give that a go…>B. Shopping, makeover? Why didn’t you say so sooner?!>C. Aww come on 19! It’d be a lot of fuuuuun~>D. Something else?
>>4066844>B. Shopping, makeover? Why didn’t you say so sooner?!>C. Aww come on 19! It’d be a lot of fuuuuun~>D. Have you ever heard of Spray Tans?Makeover, MakeoverMakeover, MakeoverMakeover, MakeoverMAKEOVER (1-2-3)For you and meee!That's cool for Zarid, I wonder if he'll get shaman powers?
>>4066844>B. >C.>D. There's still Yurin's Forest and Land of Korin areas we need to explore. When should we do those?
>>4066844>B & C.>D. Make up might not work the same for you, but I'm sure we can figure something out.>E. How far back can the room go? Meeting those ancient magic using heroes might be useful...
>>4066844These >>4066862 >>4066893
>>4066844https://youtu.be/7uNhEk8emKEYou clap your hands together excitedly. “Shopping? Makeovers? Why didn’t you say so sooner?!”Sachie’s face lights up, and she lets out a girly squeal. “Really?!”“Absolutely!” you affirm. “And 19, come on, I think you’d have a lot of fuuuuun~”She gives you a sceptical look, but starts to think the idea over. 19 then asks, “What is fun about it?”You blink. “Eh?”“If you have fun with such activities, what makes them so enjoyable?”Sachie sits up. “Lots of stuff! Trying on new outfits, and looks, seeing how you can be fashionable, finding what styles match your current mood,” She gives a V-sign. “Girl you GOTTA try it some time.” Food finally arrives, Sachie’s face lighting up as she gets her dinosaur steak (actually hadrosaur leg, though cooked like steak), carving a little bit with fork and knife and taking a bite. Her eyes go wide.Zarid laughs. “Well that’s a look I know. Lemme guess, it’s your new favorite meal?”Sachie doesn’t even reply to that, going at the steak in a way that reminds you of your cousins and uncle. “…I’d. Uh. Take that as a yes?” you answer for her.After getting about halfway through it, she lets out a satisfied sigh. “It’s like mutton and turtle soup, but the soup is almost a kind of sauce and aaaaaaa~!”“Remember to breathe.” Zarid tells her, finally trying some of his meal. “Oh. Huh, it’s like Mongolian Barbecue.”“Emperor Pilaf likes that style of cooking.” 19 states. “Some of the restaurants in Mifan are places he frequents. Helps him stay close to his people.”“Huh, with a title like Emperor I’d think someone wouldn’t really bother, but shows what I know.” Zarid comments. He then looks at 19, noticing she hasn’t ordered anything. “Not going to have some yourse-?” He then realizes what he’s asking. “…Aheh. Sorry.”“Unlike you, my body does not refuel through consumption of organic matter, no.” She crosses her arms. “I do appreciate the social activity that comes with it, though.”(cont.)
>>4067190“Speaking of social activities, maybe makeup might not work for you, but you do have very pretty hair, 19. You could style it, make it… well, something that’s more an expression of ‘you’.” you tell the android girl. “And if not, I’m sure we can find something that’ll work for you.”“An expression of… ‘me’?” she questions curiously.“Yeah!” Sachie affirms. “That’s part of the fun of it! You let your whole look become a canvas to paint yourself onto.” She then goes back to munching on the dinosaur steak.“Still not entirely sure I get it, but hey, if it’s what you want, go for it.” Zarid gives her a thumb’s up.“So, what are your plans with the Pendulum Room? You wanna see how far back it goes? I’ve wondered about that myself. Heck, given this crystal, I think going back to the time of those Knights could help give some insight into those crystals.”“I saw some things in there that made me very curious. Fighters with lots of varied techniques beyond just the ones from this world. I want to see if I can visit at least some of them again.”“Ooooh, cool fighters with cool techniques, huh?” Sachie asks.He nods. “Heh, something like that.”“Hmm… don’t know if we’ll be able to check in with the Land of Korin or Yurin’s Forest before you guys leave. Shame.”Sachie smiles at you. “Always next time. Hanging out with you is fun, my friends back home are gonna think you’re the coolest girl in your world when I tell them all about what you’ve done.”>A. Definitely next time! Fun hanging out with you too>B. Say, 19, how might you want to express yourself? I mentioned hair, anything else you can think of?>C. You know you don’t have to come with if you’d rather not, Zarid. It’s nice having you around, but I don’t wanna bore you with more “girly” stuff>D. Something else?
>>4067192Oh, Izzy isn't your average cool girl. She has risen and become a legend. The legendary Super Cool Girl!>A.>B.Jewelry?>C.
>>4067192>D. Hm, now that you bring it up, I would like to visit your world sometime.
>>4067192>A. Definitely next time! Fun hanging out with you too>B. Say, 19, how might you want to express yourself? I mentioned hair, anything else you can think of?>D. If she still doesn't get it, ask 19 how she wants to be seen by others, or feel about herself.
>>4067192“Definitely next time!” you cheer. “It’s fun hanging out with you too. Maybe we could be the ones visiting your world next time.” She seems almost giddy at the notion. You wave your fingers slightly, then add, “But note, when you meet up with your friends back home, you have to remember, you’re not talking about an average ‘cool girl.’”Sachie gasps. “I’m not?”“Indeed, you are speaking to one who has surpassed such limits. Yes. The Legendary Super Cool Girl!” You laugh haughtily. Sachie mimics your laughter, then the both of you laugh genuinely. You feel like someone is glaring in your direction very judgingly.“I am… not sure I get it.” 19 adds in.Zarid facepalms. “Their minds operate in their own little world.”Noticing the look on his before his palm blocked it, you tell him, “Actually, um… if you’d rather do something else, Zarid, none of us would hold it against you. It’s nice having you around, but you don’t have to stick with us while we try for some more, ah, ‘girly’ stuff.”His eyebrows raise, but he smiles and laughs softly. “Heh, I’m not that bothered by it. Sachie’s done substantially worse on her own before.”“Oi. Hey. Rude.” she mutters in protest.“Just… try not to make me into a living shopping cart.” he requests.“Hah, you kidding? Carrying a ton of stuff and balancing it all is decent training.” you tell him. “Mom’s done it plenty of times before.” You stretch. “Anyway, 19! How might you want to express yourself? I mentioned hair, because for real you got some pretty hair, but anything else come to mind? Ooh, maybe some jewelry!”She taps her chin. “…I guess we shall find out, won’t we?” she asks with a smile.(cont.)
>>4067479https://youtu.be/XcIkYVo9y0sAfter paying for the meal, you all start on the little shopping trip, you and Sachie trying some of the local dress, and even some interesting alien outfits (something Sachie herself is actually surprisingly familiar with), but both of you do your best to try and find some things for 19. Some more lacy outfits, surprisingly cute on her. Fishnet? A little more… mature, but she does kinda have the body for it. …Why DOES she have the body for it?“Okay so, maybe more of a gothic lolita look?” Sachie questions. “Aaaaalso um. Wow you got some… curves… for someone who looks as young as you do.”Oh thank god it’s not just you. “Kinda… reminds me of aunt Maple, I guess?”“So are you saying I should… make those features more apparent?” 19 asks.The two of you cough and mumble. “Well uh, not specifically trying to have you go into that. Just. Saying that it’s there.”Sachie mumbles very quietly, “Don’t have a… bellybutton too...”“I would think not. This body was made, not grown.” 19 tells her.“I mean! Just… something that might draw the eye. So depends on if you want to draw attention to it or now.” she explains.“Ah, so similar to your birthmark.” 19 assumes.Sachie blushes and places her hands on her rear. “That’s… one comparison. For me it’s a little embarrassing, so I do my best not to draw attention to it.”19 looks to you. “I see. Izumi, you hold your hair back normally, do you intend to have people draw their gaze more towards your forehead?”You make an exaggerated flinch. “I-it’s not that I want people to think I’ve got a five-head! Just… kinda how it happens.”She tilts her head. “So, is that why your Mahou form brings it into a ponytail?” She then looks down. “…Peppa keeps her hair in a ponytail too.”“That’s just more for practicality’s sake. Easier to keep it out of your face.” you explain. “You want to try it?”She looks at herself in the mirror. “...I think I’ll go with braiding my hair, actually.”“Oooh, perfect!~” Sachie calls out. “Take advantage of that pretty hair of yours~!”As you and Sachie work to help her braid it, a genuine and appreciative smile appears on her face. “Thank you for this.”“Hm?”“I… think I actually do like this. So thank you for encouraging me.”“Ooh, ooh, just one sec~!” Sachie bolts away and then comes back with a pair of small silvery objects. “Theeere we go~! They’re clip-ons since your ears haven’t really been pierced, but I think they’d look adorable on you!”(cont.)
>>4067480https://youtu.be/aYAJopwEYv819 looks to them. She… pouts. “They are… cute, certainly.”“What’s wrong?” the blonde girl asks, worried. “It kinda matches the black and yellow of your normal outfits. Matches!”The android girl takes the pair of bumblebee earrings. “…Memories of a less than pleasant event.”>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST KAI #30… Paused.>Twitter account is @KatoQm, will have status updates there>Got some questions for the QM?

>>4067481That certainly brought back some memories. This was delightful, thank you, Kato. Fun was had.
Agh, forgot to tell Yosei about all the other fairies. Darn.
>>4067484>>4067486>>4067496Very glad y'all had fun!>>4067545Well, maybe you'll get another chance soon.And okay, very sorry about the delay again, but we are back!>>4067481As you and Sachie finally help 19 try on some light bits of makeup (to which she doesn’t really take to, oh well), you think you’ve done all you can really do… foooor now. Sachie keeps looking over the Android girl. “Sssssso.” she skips slightly, Zarid rejoining you all with a few bags of his own, to your surprise. Sachie doesn’t notice though, and taps her fingers together. “We’ve given you some ideas, you have anything you want to try next?”“You have shown me how to use it as a way to express myself. Is there anything else I should try?” she asks.“Weeeell, you can use it to look pretty foooor… other people.” Sachie tries to hint coyly.“You mean as a method of attraction?” 19 gets right to the point.Sachie pouts. “It loses its… oomph when you say it like that.”“She’s got a point.” you add in. “And I know you and Chiaotzu have been… ahem. Dating. Think there might be something you can dress up in that… he’d like?” You personally fine the notion just a bit on the unusual side, but you’re really not one to judge.“He hasn’t expressed much interest in that.” she responds.Sachie hangs her head low. “Girl. Giiiiirl. Guys are totally, totally not going to be upfront with that. They can be super clueless sometimes.”“Hi, still here.” Zarid remarks sarcastically, finally catching Sachie’s attention.“Y-you know what I mean.” she points her finger accusingly.Zarid smirks just a little. “In any case, guys can have very varied tastes. If he likes you in your more normal outfits, he might not really notice more subtle changes in dress. But at the same time, he might be more shy if you go for something more… outlandish.” He points his thumb at Sachie. “She can verify.”Her face goes beet red. “Zaaaariiiiid!”>A. Ohohoho? Do tell, this sounds interesting>B. To clarify, I haven’t really… tried dressing up for Tapion myself, but… hmm…>C. So… how is that going, anyway? Don’t wanna pry too much, bit I AM curious>D. Something else?
>>4068967>B.A is tempting, but B is more interesting.
>>4068967>A.B would sound fun, but not a good time for it. After they come back and can hang out more casually.
>>4068967>B. To clarify, I haven’t really… tried dressing up for Tapion myself, but… hmm…>D. Guys like bunnygirl outfits, right?
Is Zarid a Ross or Chandler?
>>4068967>B.>C. Equivalent exchange?
>>4068967https://youtu.be/w4u-yApD-9I“Ohohoho?~ Do tell, this sounds very interesting.” You grin deviously.The other blonde girl pouts. “Izzzzyyyyyyy…”“If you don’t, I will.” Zarid tells her.“This is bullyiiiiing…” She childishly whines, causing you and Zarid to laugh. “F-fine… okay, so, I… I tried to, uh, get a date with a certain someone.” She sighs. “His name’s Sensu. He’s kinda this really cool, mysterious type, but like…” She glares at Zarid. “Someone warned me he was bad news.”The boy laughs quietly to himself. “And that someone was right.”Sachie sticks out her tongue at him. “And I… look, I kinda liked him, but he never paid attention to me. So I went for more… outlandish attempts.” She rubs the back of her neck. “When I finally did get him to talk to me, he…” She seems to shrivel up. “…mistook me for a member of the Yakuza, specifically an, um… ‘escort’.”“And why did he do that?” Zarid asks, knowing exactly why.“Look how was -I- supposed to know that he was one too?!” she grumbles at him loudly.19 looks over Sachie curiously. “So I should not go overboard in trying to impress anyone I am attracted to, else I will be mistaken for a-”“ANYWAY THAT’S ALL IN THE PAST NOW, RIGHT ZARID?!” Sachie yells.(cont.)
>>4069254Hoo boy. Not what you were expecting. “To, uh, clarify, 19,” you start awkwardly, trying to turn the conversation away from... that. “I haven’t really… tried, uh, dressing up for Tapion myself… but… hmm…” You start to ponder for a moment.Sachie, relieved that the attention was turned away from her, quickly gets back to her usual self’s chipper attitude. “You think you should?~”You cross your arms and look up contemplatively as you all walk. “Well, I’m not entirely sure. I… know he was friends with a princess a long time ago, but I kinda don’t want to compare myself to her. He never really implied any sort of… deeper relationship between himself and her, but at the same time, if they were closer than I’m really thinking they were, I don’t want to kinda bring up some memories that might be a bit painful for him.”“He did return to his world though, didn’t he?” Zarid asks.“Well yeah, but it was one so far removed from the one he left. He said he and his brother were treated like… well, almost celebrities while they were there. Living legends.” you reply. “But… still slightly distant. Familiar, but distant. And I… I dunno. I’d just… I want him to be able to feel like he belongs somewhere.” You sigh softly. “Does that make sense?”“Yeah.” Zarid… nods solemnly.You smile softly. “Glad he and Minotia were so ready to take up Supreme Kai’s offer. Maybe it’ll be what they need.”Eventually, you spot the unmistakable sight of Vegeta and family, the Saiyan prince in actual Mifan dress for once. Casual, but unmistakably Mifan. He… seems to be actually be spending time with them. He doesn’t seem that interested, but Shao and Baozi at least seem happy. Speaking of, Baozi takes notice of you almost immediately. The kid waves to you, causing Vegeta to look over… and he seems to give an unsure look to you all. Especially Sachie. …Why’s he looking at her like that? It’s like he heard her tell a joke he’s not sure is funny or not.>A. Head over, chat a bit!>B. Better leave them to what they were doing>C. Could… ask for some advice on the whole… Tapion situation>D. Something else?
>>4069255>B. Better leave them to what they were doing>D. Make a face at Baozi
>>4069255You start walking in their direction, Baozi’s face brightening up. “Hi Izzy!”“Hey there lil’ Emperor in the making. Still got a good groove going, or you trying a new one?” You chuckle to yourself at the joke you’ve made.“Heh, my groove hasn’t been thrown off yet.” he replies confidently. “Sensed you nearby a while ago. Hanging out with your friends again?”“And trying some really good food.” Sachie pipes in.Shao gives you a respectful bow. “We’ve been enjoying a little family day together. Vegeta promised.”“I must say that it is surprising that you are willing to go through with that. I assumed you would be training with your new form.” 19 comments.“Don’t assume I’m going soft, talking trash can.” Vegeta snipes at her, though you don’t really get any malice behind that. Well, not his usual amount anyway.“Vegetaaaa. Isn’t there something you want to say?” Shao asks, a sly grin appearing on her face.Grumbling to himself, he then looks to Sachie again. “You. Ninja girl.”She points at herself. “Me?”Vegeta rolls his eyes. “No, the other one hiding in the shadows, like an ACTUAL ninja.”All of you hear someone yelp in the distance, followed by trash cans tipping over and several cats shrieking. Sachie looks in that direction for a moment. “…I think she left.”Vegeta pinches the ridge of his nose. Shao pokes the side of his head. “No blasting. Now, say what you were wanting to.”“Fine. Just. You.” He points at Sachie after bringing his hand down. “Tell me, where did you learn that sphere technique? The one you used against that Kai in the Tournament.”She blinks. “Oh! You mean the Rasengan! My dad taught me it.”Vegeta grumbles, muttering under his breath, “Bah. Even sounds like her technique…” Looking away, the Saiyan prince seems to have to force himself to say what comes next. “…I wish to thank you. It proved to be Baby’s undoing.”Sachie opens her mouth in amazement. “Whaaaaat? You mean you learned it all on your own?”“Stupid name for the technique, I could come up with a better one…” he mumbles under his breath again.Sachie ignores that entirely and instead almost jumps up with excitement. “I’m gonna tell dad that! Might be terrified you learned it so easily but wow, my dad’s technique, saving your world!” She looks to you with joy. “Is that cool or what? Beat a god and that Baby monster thing!”“That’s not all.” Shao tugs at the long sleeve of Vegeta’s outfit. “What else?”Vegeta turns his attention to you, and like he’s trying to swim through peanut butter, he says, “Thank you for making sure Baby didn’t take over my body… Izumi.”>A. No problem! Hey if Baby took over YOU, we would have been in way more trouble>B. Hear that Baozi? Your dad owes me for saving his butt!>C. So uh, that new, or you getting ninja following you for a while now?>D. Something else?
>>4069494>C. So uh, that new, or you getting ninja following you for a while now?>D. What would be a good name for it? "Rock you like a Hurricane"?
>>4069494>A.>D.Ask him about that Helix thing he does, is that how he learned the move so quickly?Also insist he call the attack that.
>>4069494>A.>C. "You're quite the celebrity in a lot of ways, now."
>>4069516No insisting, people should be allowed to name attacks as they please.
>>4069494>A. No problem! Hey if Baby took over YOU, we would have been in way more trouble>D. On the subject of transformations, I managed a new one, sorta. I'd like to show you it later, after I recover from the first time I used it.
>>4069552Why show it to Vegeta? Why would Izumi want to?
>>4069494>>4069552Well, you couldn't give a good reason as to why Izzy would want to show Vegeta, so I think we should save it for Acer, he'd like it more.
>>4069565Let's test out our new form against someone we know will test it well? You know he'd be down to duel with a giant robot.
>>4069569So would Acer.
>>4069572Yeah but he can't turn into a kaiju.
>>4069593And now Vegeta doesn't either. Could ask Peppa.
>>4069593>>4069601Ooh, that would be a good thing to do if/when Izzy gets to hang with her.
>>4069494You smile pleasantly at him. “No problem, Mr. Vegeta. And hey, if Baby took over YOUR body, we’d have been in waaaaay more trouble.”“That you would have.” Vegeta nods.“Also like, is that new?” You point in the direction of the apparent other ninja. “Or have you had ninja following you for a while now? Guess you’ve become a bit of a celebrity, after all.”“Probably more of Yurin’s.” Vegeta replies. “Hmnh. Probably want my help again.”“Again?” 19 repeats.“They’re still not sure what to do with Broly.” His face scrunches up a bit. “Let him rot.”You and 19 are taken aback a bit, and even Zarid, surprisingly, wasn’t expecting that. Sachie doesn’t really get the significance, but she does notice everyone’s reactions. “I thought Broly was on the Lookout.” you point out.“They recovered him and some others when the Lookout was taken over by Baby’s forces. There they remain. So be it. Broly’s choices led him to that fate.” Vegeta remarks. He then smirks. “Only thing I might even consider regretting is not showing the so-called Legendary Super Saiyan the power of a Primal Super Saiyan.”“Ooh, speaking of those transformations, I’ve managed a new little trick myself.” you tell Vegeta with a smirk.“Whaaaat? No way, I didn’t sense anything like that.” Baozi points out. “You bluffing, Izzy?”“Oh it’s no bluff. Maple told me to rest up for a while, since using it took a lot out of me, but once I’m recovered, I’d be happy to show you it, Vegeta.” you tell him confidently.He seems intrigued. “Is that so? Heh. I guess I can add you to the list. Just don’t let this bluster be all hot air, Tuffle.”>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST KAI #30… Paused.>Twitter account is @KatoQm, will have status updates there>Got some questions for the QM? Suggestions?

Not too long until this apparent Afterlife Tournament. Still time enough to train some more, but you really should try and focus on something for it. You’ve got plenty of strength, for sure, but couldn’t hurt to try and get a little stronger. At the same time, Yazai’s been quite open to help you learn some new techniques, as have a few others. Bardock’s apparently made some decent progress too, and Gine is at least still trying, could check in with them again. Though, you also want to check up on Tapion and Minotia, and Shin and Kibito and Elder Kai. See what they’re all doing, maybe even try and get your potential unlocked…What to do, what to do…>A.

>>4070708https://youtu.be/0xA0vjiruAEWell, after helping with one round of King Yemma’s paperwork (and double-checking on if he might actually be Santa Claus; jury’s still out), you think you’ve got a good idea on what to do next. Yazai’s skills are definitely something you’re interested in, and you like training with him. Tapion and Minotia after, for sure. Plus, there are even more folks you can train with over on the Grand Kai’s planet. So you take a couple days sparring with Yazai and Olibu, seeing some fairly interesting techniques displayed by them. As you finish dodging several lashes of Ki at shoot off from Yazai’s body, you decide to take a short break.Heading over to get some grub, you think to ask the Saiyan man, “So you learned how to become a Super Saiyan even while dead, right?”“Heh. Partially by emulating your father.” he replies with a quick laugh. “Goku became the first real Super Saiyan in a very long time… though not quite the Super Saiyan that Legends spoke of.” He then gains a somber look. “It’s a shame what became of Broly.”“He was too far gone and didn’t want to come back.” you remark. “Mom sealing him away was better than letting him rampage.” Probably better than he deserved, given how… conscious he was of the decisions he made.“I mean the circumstances that led to that.” Yazai explains. “He inherited the power of the Super Saiyan that Legends, but he ended up manipulated to do his father’s bidding… and then Towa’s. His whole life only knew negative influences. Paragus even had the gaul to put his son in the outfits we wore…” The Saiyan man sighs. “Perhaps such a power really is more of a curse than a blessing.”(cont.)
>>4071009“I don’t really know much about those kinds of Legends. I’ve heard things from uncle Raditz, Vegeta, and Nappa, but only scattered bits and pieces. Didn’t you become a kind of Super Saiyan yourself, before you died? Could you tell me more about what you know of those Legends?”“It was a temporary power, sadly. Brought out by the faith my allies had in me, entrusted with their power.” Yazai gets a plate and starts stacking loads of food onto it. “The Legends spoke of a Saiyan whose power surpassed all others, radiant and unbeatable. What I came to learn was that such a power came at a price. That kind of power amplifies not only one’s strength, but one’s mental state, and if not harnessed correctly, can turn the one who tapped into it into a raging brute. The power feeding back on the deteriorating mind, looping back until… well, they end up destroying themselves.” With now three plates filled with food stacked as high as he is tall, Yazai finishes, “But on the other hand, if harnessed correctly though, that Saiyan could become a God of Justice.” He looks upward, towards the sky. “Maybe the spirit of such a heroic Saiyan is still out there in the heavens. The real first Super Saiyan, that kept his mind even with that kind of power. Haven’t found him yet. But… a part of me holds out hope.”“I’m sure he is.” Olibu comments, having gotten himself his own feast, you waiting for him to finish packing on food. “As dark as your history became, gems of goodness still shine through. Like yourself.” Olibu’s hand pats your head. “And this fine young man here.”>A. Would you like any help looking?>B. Say, what was that technique you were using? Hadn’t seen anything like it before>C. What about your allies, Yazai? They must be curious about such a thing>D. Do you think there’s anything we should do to prepare for the tournament?>E. Something else?
>>4071009>Paragus even had the gaul to put his son in the outfits we wore…”Yazai's a little bitch to be that petty about clothes.
>>4071013>A. Would you like any help looking?>B. Say, what was that technique you were using? Hadn’t seen anything like it before>D. Do you think there’s anything we should do to prepare for the tournament?

>>4071013Pass-blocked player votes B & E.They want to know more on how Yazai's power worked, and if it were like a transformation or something else.
>>4071013Once you’ve gotten a meal for yourself, you sit down with the two of them and chow down. After a few bites, you think to ask, “Say, that technique you were using earlier, those energy lashes. What exactly was that? I hadn’t quite seen a technique like that before.”Yazai finishes up a steak and grins. “I’ve been working to try some tricks with my aura, using it in conjunction with my Ki to give things a bit more oomph. I heard from some more ancient Saiyans that there were a few that would manipulate their Ki in unique ways. Some would resort to very dark powers to create limbs of shadows, even trying to regrow their tails if cut off. I’m trying to find something that can manage it without calling upon such powers. An… alternative, I’d say.”“I’d actually heard some fighters on Earth using similar skills at a time.” Olibu points out. “From my understanding, it eventually became the basis for what the Crane School of your time, Gohan, calls the Four Witches technique.” he tells you.“Yeah, but I don’t want to create physical limbs using it. I want to keep it more focused on a manipulation of my Ki and aura, put some of that energy in the aura to good use.” Yazai states.>A. That sounds awesome! Mind helping me learn it?>B. Trying techniques from ancient Saiyans, huh? Think you’ll find a way to tap into that power again? …Wonder if you can transfer it somehow, given how you first gained it…>C. Could you tell me more on what you remember that power being like? Was it more of a transformation, or a technique, or just something borrowed?>D. Something else?
>>4071256>D. Oh yeah, there was an anime like that. I wonder if they have it here?

>>4071288I'll hold you to that then.>>4071256“So you’re trying some techniques out from ancient Saiyans, huh?” you ask after having a bowl of fried rice. “Think you’ll be able to tap into that kind of power again through that? …Wonder if there’s some way to transfer that power between people, given how you say you’ve obtained it…” Maybe using hair- wait, Gohan, focus! “Actually, Yazai, how exactly did that process work? Like, was it a transformation, more a technique, just some kind of borrowed power? What details can you give me that you remember of the whole thing?”“Eheh, well, to answer your first question, it’s a few things. I do feel there might be a way to tap into that power again by looking into our race’s past, but I also want to try to… well, preserve some of the things lost to time. The Saiyans ruined their homeworld and fled to Plant, and in the process lost so much of their history, devolving into the barbarism that resulted in King Vegeta’s rise.” he solemnly responds. “And what I remember of it…” He crosses his arms, eyes closing, as memories seem to come flooding back to him. “My allies pooled their energy into me, and I felt… well, the call of something. Power flowed through my body, and it… changed somehow. Transformation, technique, borrowed strength, maybe it was all of the above. My power was phenomenal, beyond anything I’ve been able to access since… and yet it vanished as readily as it came.”You finish up another bowl of rice. “How’d you tell it vanished?”“I didn’t.” Yazai’s eyes open. “It happened so suddenly that I didn’t really have time to react. One moment I was tossing an oozaru over the horizon, the next I was rushing toward another and got smacked aside by their fist. And then I just… stopped living.”“Perhaps the power you tapped into was granted by a god.” Olibu speculates. “Or at the very least, your Kami saw what you were doing and granted you a boon.”Yazai shakes his head. “Nah. Wasn’t that, not exactly. But… I do guess there was some kind of feel to it like another being helping me.”“Anything else you can recall?”He looks to you for a moment, seeming to take note of your… hair? “…Red.”“Hm?”“I remember the color red. My aura was like a vibrant, red flame.”>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST KAI #30… Paused.>Twitter account is @KatoQm, will have status updates there>Got some questions for the QM? Suggestions?

Hope that gets fixed for you soon.>>4072397Good question indeed.>>4072435Perhaps.And okay, we are back!>>4071428After the meal, you ask him more about that power, questioning if it was anything like the Kaio-ken. He’d talked with King Kai about it before, and while giving a similar feeling, especially a sense of tranquility in spite of the surge of power, but isn’t quite it exactly. That… gets you thinking. Dad and Peppa have learned to use the Kaio-ken while Super Saiyan, Peppa even managing something that takes the principle of the technique without fully using it itself to get stronger in Super Saiyan 3. Maybe the power was something like that?“Super Saiyan and Kaio-ken, huh…?” Yazai thinks aloud after you bring the idea up. “Perhaps she is on to something.”“There’s also what Vegeta’s been able to tap into, combining the Oozaru and Super Saiyan forms and compacting it into what he called ‘Primal Super Saiyan.’” you mention.“Heh, well whatever I had, it was definitely not that.” Yazai then rubs his chin. “…Huh. Just made me remember something. There were Legends of the Super Saiyan that had to do with the power being expressed in the Oozaru state. Maybe Vegeta’s on to something too…”“So, are you going to try to mix the Kaio-ken with Super Saiyan?” Olibu asks, grinning. “Would be quite a surprise to pull out for the Tournament.”>A. Let’s try it! At the very least it could help you get closer to tapping into that power once more>B. Ooh, speaking of, we should start thinking on some strategies for the tournament.

>>4072651“All right, let’s try it!” you tell Yazai excitedly. “At the very least it can help you get a bit closer to tapping into that power again.” Never did say how many people were needed to share their power with him. Maybe there’s a trick to that?He grins. “Heh, okay, let’s give this a shot!”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KLYP-Gs6IuIYou and Yazai end up going to King Kai’s planet once more for the training, working with him directly to try and understand everything better. King Kai makes it VERY clear that the risks involved in this could be catastrophic if not handled properly; even with these bodies you’ve both been granted, it will exhaust you like nothing else. For Yazai, it’s not as much a concern, but for you, you realize just how demanding learning something like this is… and you realize just how much Peppa had to go through to learn it herself. Heck, she went through even more, as she developed that Limit Breaker all on her own.But she didn’t give up, and neither will you.It takes a week of training, with you learning from King Kai that your school’s starting up again… and that your mother’s put in a bit stating that your absence is due to you spending time at a program that doesn’t take place on Earth, but you should be back in a few months. Teeeechnically accurate. She has started collecting classwork for you, though (light that they are right now, but it won’t last like that for long). Mom doesn’t want you missing out on your studies… though she’s at least not making you do it while dead.In any case, the training bares fruit, as you and Yazai finally manage to tap into it. Using the Kaio-ken while a Super Saiyan! The Super Kaio-ken! And that’s not all! Thanks to your training with Yazai, the two of you learn how to apply the principle of the technique without fully transforming with it, like Peppa did! King Kai himself couldn’t be more proud. “Haha, wow, to think teaching your namesake the technique all those years ago would lead to this!” the Kai remarks in praise, his pet monkey dancing and clapping alongside him.(cont.)
>>4072813“Hey, King Kai, Baby made Launch use something like this technique.” you comment to him. “Even though she isn’t a Saiyan.”“True. And because of that, her body couldn’t handle that kind of strain.” King Kai affirms. “You guys are pretty lucky.”“Might there be a way to do something like what we just managed, though? Using it to boost power without fully transforming?” you ask.King Kai rubs his chin. “Hmm… might be a bit harder for humans, but hey, could be worth a shot. The Kaio-Ten is probably a better bet for them anyway.”“So Gohan, you satisfied with this kind of training?” Yazai asks, cracking his knuckles.You stretch your arms, legs, and tail. “Mostly. I still want to spend some time with Tapion and Minotia before the Tournament starts.”He nods. “All right kid. Thanks for your help.”“Heh, thanks for sharing so much of your own discoveries with me. It’s given me so much to try to focus on. My mind’s been racing through all that history you’ve uncovered, and I gotta say, it’s really made me want to take my training more seriously.”You wave as you start to leave for King Yemma’s place.

>>4072844Quiz Bowl with the Sneks?
>>4072814You decide to head on over to Princess Snake’s palace once more. Time to uphold your end of Elder Kai’s bargain. You find her again, and notice the palace has changed location. She initially seems pleased when she senses a guest outside, but her mood sours slightly when she sees you. “Oh. H-hello, again. Gohan.”“Princess Snake.” you bow respectfully. “Still willing to come with me to to meet a Supreme Kai?”She pouts slightly. “Why ARE you doing this, Gohan?”“Like I said, you check all the boxes. No halo, very pretty, not too young.” You then narrow your eyes at her. “And you did try and cheat in our race.”Letting out a sight guffaw, blushing a little. “You… really do mean that?”“I have working eyes, yes.” you respond nonchalantly.She grumbles. “You’re rather rude, boy.”“You tried to eat me. And your attempt made me thankful toilets still exist in the afterlife.” You motion for her to follow. “Anyway come on.”As the two of you fly off towards King Yemma to contact Shin, Princess Snake gives you a quizzical look, “You didn’t really answer my question. Why are you doing this?”“Elder Kai promised to help me bring out my hidden strengths if I do this. I want to get stronger.”She raises an eyebrow. “So just as a method to gain strength?”“And to protect the people I care about. Friends, family… the reason I ended up here was in attempt to stop something that threatened my world. I’m very much aware of how dangerous the universe can be.”Princess Snake is now genuinely curious. “…How old are you, boy?”“13, technically 14.” you reply.“And are you the only one this Elder Kai offered that kind of power to?”>A. Ah crap, I better contact Pantea and Videl!>B. So you just trying to stall, or are you actually curious?>C. Hey, my turn. You and King Yemma were a thing, weren’t you? How’d that go down?>D.

I… probably should double check with Elder Kai too.” Not like he’d be opposed to it-OH CRAP RIGHT. “Dang it, I should contact them before we head there!”Princess Snake lets out a mischievous chuckle. “Lady friends, you say? So you’re not completely immune to feminine charms. And might one of these-?”“Hey hey hey hey hey, hold it, you’ve been asking all the questions here.” you point out. “My turn.”She pouts. “Fine.” Under her breath she adds, “Spoilsport.”Okay, this has been on your mind for a while now. Might as well ask. “You and King Yemma were a thing, weren’t you? How exactly did that go down?”The look on her face becomes quite a bit more sour once more. “King Yemma and I used to be quite a pair. Long, long ago I would sate my hunger on the departed as they strayed from the path to him, leading to King Yemma and I having our first… disagreement. My true form was captured and bound, and he tried to have me work with him. I would devour evildoers, give them a fitting punishment, but Yemma decided to focus on ‘reformation’ rather than punishment. Bring me under his system and then kick me out when I do the job he asked of me!” She… then lets out a weary sigh. “If he weren’t so dreamy himself I’d have shown him that the constrictions are for more than just playtime…”TMI, TMI, TMI! “So, now you’re up here huh?”(cont.)
>>4073030“Having to scrape out a very meager existence, yes. Hmnh. Maybe this Elder Kai of yours is more of a REAL man…” she mutters under her breath once more.And that’s your cue to check on him. Takes a moment to get in contact, but you’re finally able to (with King Kai’s help), get back into contact with Elder Kai. ‘So have I got some good news for you. Buuut there’s a bit of a catch.’‘I am listening.’ he replies cautiously.‘Are you at all willing to extend the offer to a couple more people?’‘Hey now, what’re you trying to pull here? One kiss, one unlock. No trying to scam me, kid.’ Elder Kai huffs.‘Now now, I’d never do that, sir. It’s just… instead of one pretty lady giving you a kiss, well, let’s say we triple that.’ You grin.‘...Aheh heh heh. I was merely joking before. H-how pretty we talking here?’And perfect. Plan is working. ‘I mean they definitely fit your criteria. Just gotta make sure you offer the ritual to them too. I’ve got one for myself, the other two I’ll be getting into contact with shortly. Let Shin know to collect us all when I give the signal.’ One more step. You arrive at the entrance of Snake Way, walking towards King Yemma’s palace.

Ugh. Hey, long time no chat.’ Pantea grumbles wearily, and in slight annoyance. ‘Ugh, what time is it…?’‘It SHOULD be noon where you are.’ you tell her curiously. ‘Were you pulling an all-nighter again?’‘Eheh. K-kinda… wait, okay, what’s the occasion?’ She still seems groggy.‘I want to know if you and Videl are ready to meet with Elder Kai, and get your potentials unlocked by him. He’s certainly willing to help the two of you.’ you explain. ‘I mean, unless you need a couple extra hours of sleep.’ you remark with a slight chuckle to her.‘W-wait, already?!’ she exclaims, sounding curiously flustered. ‘Agh, crap, I… okay, j-just… just give us a moment… I uh… I…’ She tries to explain something, though it isn’t especially coherent. You do hear the word “kiss” brought up clear enough, at least.>A. What were you working on that had you losing sleep again? New game, new project?>B. So, how have you been?

Okay. I uh…’‘Still didn’t answer me.’ you comment.‘Llllllook. I um. I’ve just been… considering some things about… myself recently. S-so…’ She starts to mutter again.‘You don’t say it and I’m gonna start making guesses.’ you warn.In a flustered, pouty tone, she replies, ‘I haven’t had my… my first kiss yet, okay?’‘Oh. That it? I haven’t either.’‘Shut up.’ she mutters.‘On that note, anyone else you have in mind in case we need to do this again? Erasa’s the only girl I really know other than the one I’ve found that might fit the bill and willing to go through with it.’There’s a bit of suspicion in her tone as she hears you say that. ‘...Maybe. I’ll have to think that over. Also who exactly IS this lady?’‘Goddess of Snake Way, who calls herself Princess Snake. She tried to eat me.’ you explain nonchalantly. ‘Tried, failed.’‘I… see.’ She seems much more coherent now, at least. ‘Well, I’m going to check up on Videl.‘What were you working on that had you losing sleep again?

She might want it for her abilities to be unlocked, but she kinda relies more on her ninja skills than power, unlike someone like, say Erasa. Besides, she’s kinda been through a bit this year. If you wanna bring it up to her, I guess you could…’‘A-ah. Okay.’ Pantea replies in… relief. ‘I’ll… see about that.’‘Wait, were you… worried about her for some reason?’ you question.She lets out a girly pout of “Hmph.” to you. ‘Oh no, not at all. Definitely not worried in the slightest.’‘Pantea, come on. I know you well enough to understand what THAT level of sarcasm means. What’s wrong.’She sighs. ‘...Sorry. I just… I’m still not really sure I trust her, is all.’‘She’s done a LOT to help us, you know.’‘She’s also apparently keeping some of the sealed foes locked far away in her forest.’ Pantea informs you. ‘I… don’t know if I like that.’Ah. Well. That’s a bit different. ‘Well, maybe she and Trip should talk about that.’Pantea sighs again. ‘Okay. Keep in touch, Videl and I will be ready soon. Might take a while, think she was busy with something today. I’ll tell you when. But yeah, soon.’‘Hope so.’ You finally turn your attention back to Princess Snake, who had been trading snide remarks with King Yemma. “All right, they’ll be ready soon enough. Ready to go?”“Fine, fine, let’s get this over with…”You give the signal to Shin, and he sends for Kibito to collect the two of you. “Son Gohan.” he greets respectfully. “It would seem your training has been going well.”“Yep! Ready to take Elder Kai up on his offer now.” You motion at Princess Snake… who you notice is actually kinda… swooning over him.“I-is… is this the Elder Kai?” she asks, letting out a girly giggle. “He is quite a looker.”Kibito remains stone-faced. “I am merely an attendant to the current Supreme Kai.”“O-oh… okay.” She frowns.“Let’s go, Kibito!”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hNxpDaULjEsHe places his hands on the two of you and calls out “Kai Kai.” to teleport you both to the Supreme Kai’s world. There, you see Tapion and Minotia floating above the ground slightly, meditating. Shin himself looks over to you happily, sitting under a tree sipping tea. Meanwhile, Elder Kai… is reading manga with headphones on. Princess Snake looks around in awe for a moment.“The… land of the Supreme Kai.”“Mind your manners here, Deity of Snake Way.” Kibito tells her sternly. “You are here as a guest.”She sinks back a bit. “Yes sir…”>A. Say hi to Tapion and Minotia first!>B. Talk with Supreme Kai, any progress on Majin Buu?>C. Okay Princess Snake, let’s get you to meet Elder Kai>D. Something else?
>>4074335I'll pick B & C, and blocked player is going B.
>>4074335>B.>C.Tapion and Minotia seem busy.
>>4074335>C and D. Alright, a being who needs no introduction, Princesses and Assistants, behold, the Elder Kai!
>>4074335You walk with Princess Snake towards the Supreme Kai, greeting him with a smile. “Hello again, sir. Seems training with them has been going well.” You glance over at Tapion and Minotia.“Indeed it has.” he nods.“So what’s the situation with Majin Buu? Got that resolved?”He shakes his head and places his tea down. “I am afraid not. It is a very delicate situation we have been dealt with. Tapion and Minotia both have improved substantially, but not to the point where I think they can bring out the Grand Supreme Kai without releasing Majin Buu first.” He motions for you to come a bit closer, and you sit down with him. “In truth, I worry that this kind of training is taking its toll on them. Your offer to have them join that Tournament is probably the best I could have asked for. It’s given them something to focus on beyond the monotony of trying to bring out Grand Supreme Kai.”You smile happily. “So they are going to join.”“Indeed. I’ll give them a day to meet with their Supreme Kai directly, though I have been in contact with him to help instruct them for the Tournament ever since the offer was made.” Shin sips his tea. “They are looking forward to it quite a bit, especially since they’ll have a chance to test themselves against you.”“That’s great to hear.” As you talk with Shin, you notice that Princess Snake looks over the Supreme Kai, sort of checking him out… but doing something else as well. “Is… something wrong?” you ask her.“N-no, not at all… I’ve just never been in the presence of one of the higher Kais before. Only King Kai himself.” she admits, blushing.“I have been made aware of your presence, Goddess of Snake Way.” Shin comments. “While I make no statement on your current predicament, though I do hope you have learned not to try to consume one of my students in the future.” From the way he says it, you can tell that is as much a warning as it is a reminder.She bows her head apologetically, like a child being scolded. “Yes sir, sorry sir.”“Well, hope we can resolve the Majin Buu situation soon, sir.” you stand up. “Time to get this part over with. Princess Snake?”She sighs. “Yes, yes, I’m coming…”The pair of you walk over to Elder Kai, the old man chuckling softly to himself. You can hear the music playing from the headphones get quite loud as you approach. “Hello Sir! …Sir?”“Ehehehehe, the ALIENS! Hehehehe!” he comments as he flips a page in the manga he’s reading.“...Uuhhhh, sir?” you ask a bit louder.(cont.)
>>4074548https://youtu.be/_HOzbHzxws0Princess Snake huffs. She then marches forward and tugs on one of the headphones, and yells at the Elder Kai, “EXCUSE US, WE’RE TALKING TO YOU.”That surprises him enough for him to fall over in a panic, the headphones resting in Princess Snake’s hands. For a moment he looks incredulous… and then he sees the pretty lady standing before him. His eyes lock on to her, and you’d swear they become heart-shaped for a moment. He sits up excitedly. “Well heeellooooo there.” Elder Kai calls to her in a near swoon. He then spots you and grins. “Gohan my boy, you’ve outdone yourself. She is QUITE the looker all right.” The old Kai stands. “Hmhmhm… and you’ve got two more coming soon, don’t you?”“Yes sir. They’ve got the same deal you offered me.” you tell him.“Well young missy, who might you be?” he asks, grin only growing wider.She seems to consider something for a moment before responding, but then… decides to play things up just a bit. “Oh great Kai, I am but the Goddess of Snake Way. I prefer being called Princess Snake, though.” She leans in closer, stroking a finger along his jawline. “Here to help a young man who bested me, and fulfill a promise I made.” She leans in closer, making sure he… gets a good look at her chest. “He did have a request of you. Are you going to… grant that request, great Kai?~”He’s like putty in her hands. “W-well, there was a c-certain requirement…”“How unbecoming.” Kibito critically grumbles.Princess Snake leans in closer, her voice… quite sensual, even to your ears. “I recall… it was this, wasn’t it?~” And she gives him… a kiss he’ll remember for QUITE some time after this. Elder Kai falls back in a daze. Princess Snake walks back to you, hips swaying, then gives you a pat on the head. “He’s all yours, kid.”Trying to recover from that, Elder Kai stands up again and nearly trips over himself a couple times as he moves back to you. “AHEM. Ahem. W-well… you pass my test, Gohan. Are you ready to begin?”>A. Absolutely, let’s do this!>B. Thank Princess Snake for that>C. Ask how long the thing is going to take, exactly>D. Should I wait for the other two so you can have it all done at once?>E. Something else?
>>4074548>Indeed. I’ll give them a day to meet with their Supreme Kai directly,>E. "There's a South Supreme Kai? Which one are you, North? Where is the South Supreme Kai?"
>>4074550>C & D.
>>4074565Shin really should be working on rescuing him too.
>>4074550Blocked player votes C & D as well.
>>4074639Sure, B too.
>>4074550https://youtu.be/jPSe1rILUEA“Thank you, Princess Snake.” you tell her politely.“Go get what you wanted, kid.” she says as she starts to walk off.Well, no time like the present! “Elder Kai,” you address him, “Should we wait until the other two are able to come? You know, get this all done at once?”He shakes his head, finally pulling it out of the heart-shaped clouds it was clearly in from Princess Snake’s kiss. “Sorry kiddo, not how it works. It’s one by one, and you gotta wait it all out.” he explains. “Interrupting it might mean having to start it all over again.”“Ah, okay… wait, how long, exactly, does this take? Because it’s sounding like it’s going to be quite long.”He places his arms behind his back. “Hmnh. It’s no simple power-up, kiddo. This is taking your hidden strengths and bringing it out, beyond your normal limits. For normal folks it might take around 25 hours total. Five for the start-up, 20 to draw it to the surface.”Your shoulders slouch. 25 hours. More than a day to get it done. Crrrrap. Well it’s not like you have anywhere to be, but… dang.>A. I need to let Pantea and Videl know first>B. Better get it over with then>C. Can you tell me more about how it’ll work?>D. Something else?
>>4074665>D. "...that really sucks!" Ask Pantea to bring a vidya, ANY vidya!
>>4074665Blocked poster votes:A then B, and D."Figure out when everyone can drop by, and maybe see if friends can stay in the afterlife a while and hang.Also supporting that, and the suggestion Pantea bring some games.
Ah shit, should we catch up on schoolwork or our vidya backlog?

>>4074665>>A. I need to let Pantea and Videl know first>>C. Can you tell me more about how it’ll work?
>>4074665You rub the back of your neck and chuckle nervously. “Ahehehehe. W-well. Just give me oooone second.” You bolt over to Shin. “Okay really, really quick, I need to make another contact with my friends.”He places his tea down curiously. “Why so?”“I need to make sure they know how long all of this takes, just so they can prepare for it. A few days with classes starting up again isn’t the easiest to work around.” you explain.“Ahh. Very well…”And so you’re connected with Pantea once more, and you sit down next to Shin as he helps mediate. ‘Okay, really quick, Pantea… do you and Videl have like… three days to spare? Also, some videogames to bring along? Because this is NOT a short little ritual we’re talking about.’‘How long we talking here?’ she questions curiously.‘25 hours. Maybe more.’‘Oh. Oh that’s… a lot, yeah.’ She lets out a few contemplative “hmms,” apparently talking with Videl at the moment to get all of this set up. Pantea finally gets back to you after a couple minutes. ‘I’ll have to help her with some schoolwork but sure, I can do that.’‘Oh! Actually, could you also check in with my mom before you come? I’d like to catch up on some of my own schoolwork. DEFINITELY bring some games though. Maybe some for Tapion and Minotia too?’ ‘Heh, okay Gohan. Thanks… and hope to see you soon.’(cont.)
>>4074904https://youtu.be/boD8YwSOp70You hop back over to Elder Kai. “The girls will be coming soon. I’m ready.”“Good. Now stand still, this is gonna take a bit.” he demands… and starts dancing around you. Supreme Kai seems curious, as if he recognizes it from somewhere. Well. 25 hours. Gotta get this done somehow.Time passes, Tapion and Minotia finally leaving their meditative state, glad to see you, and ready to start catching up… but told to hush as Elder Kai continues to dance. He does at least explain that both he and Minotia have been trying some mental training in addition to the physical training… and that they’re really looking forward to completing in the Tournament. Time continues to pass… and once the five hours are up, you’re told to sit. Oh thank every single god you’ve met and most you haven’t, your legs are STIFF.“May… we be able to talk now?” Tapion asks.“Eh sure, just don’t have him move from this spot.” Elder Kai sits down beside you, holding both his hands forward. “I need him right here.”Tapion nods. “Thank you, sir. Heh. Looks like you’ve gone through a lot of training already, Gohan.”“Putting it mildly. Took a trip through Hell, spent time training with the Saiyan who tried to stop the Tuffle genocide, got to learn tricks from a ghost, and nearly got eaten by a snake goddess.”At mention of that last one, Tapion looks over to Princess Snake… who is trying, and failing, to flirt with Kibito. “So you have. Even in death you’ve lived a life that some of the grandest epics of my time would pale in comparison to.”“Yeah, you’re like a legendary hero or something.” Minotia comments half-jokingly.“How about the two of you, ready for the Tournament?”Tapion nods. “We have been preparing well for it. You might be surprised by what we have in store.”“Just kinda hope we can get the Buu thing dealt with before then.” his brother adds in. “Big load off our minds.”And so time passes, and passes, and passes… and passes… and you have to force yourself to stay awake a couple times. Elder Kai himself seems to doze off more than once. And… the 20 hours pass. “Um. We ready now?”“Huh. No. No we’re not.” he tells you.You frown. “Whyyyy not?”Elder Kai’s face lights up. “Because you’re a real rarity, Gohan. Your potential is beyond what I thought it would be.”“How much longer?” you ask.“When you’re done, you’re done. I’ll tell you.” He brings out another volume of manga and starts reading.(cont.)
>>4074908Some more time passes, and Kibito arrives with Pantea and Videl, catching your attention. The two of them dressed a little casually, Videl with a large bag and Pantea with your backpack, also looking… slightly flustered, and you notice Pantea rubbing her lips with the back of her hand. Princess Snake takes notice of the two, sorta looking down her nose at them both, but going back to sipping tea with Shin, not making comment on them. Tapion and Minotia are the first to greet them properly, Tapion holding out his hand. “It is good to see you again, Pantea.”She brushes some hair out of her face and shakes his hand. “Good to see you too, Tapion. Izzy’s looking forward to catching up, whenever you have the chance.”Videl looks over at you. “Huh. So this is how it works?” she asks skeptically.Elder Kai’s face lights up quite a bit, and he comments quietly to you, “Boy, you REALLY know how to pick ‘em. Look at twintails there, she’s quite fit, but has that very sweet face. Shapely too. And miss purple hair has that cute nerd look, mixed in with a bit of… ehehehe, childhood friend?”“You’re not THAT quiet, you know.” Videl growls at him. “Great. Get my power unlocked by a creep. Just how I wanted to spend today.”“Oh you’ll change your tune little missy.” Elder Kai remarks, looking back to you. “Gohan. Stand.”You do as he asks, your body… strangely NOT sore after sitting for so long. “Huh. This is… different.”“Heh, you haven’t even tapped into it yet. Try doing that Super Saiyan thing you do. Go on, Gohan. Transform.” He stands up… and starts booking it, getting to a safe distance.https://youtu.be/5KS37ojVk8IWell, here goes. You begin to power up… and as you draw out more and more strength, you realize that there’s what feels like a limitless well of power you’ve started to draw from. Sparks surround your body. Energy flares higher and higher. Your aura stays a bright, vibrant white even though you’re trying to transform like you do normally. Your hair spikes, but only very slightly. You let out a yell as you finally draw it all out… or at least enough that it feels like you’ve done so. You… haven’t really transformed, at least not into a Super Saiyan. But this… this has all of the strength you’ve been able to use in your Super Saiyan forms. Even 3. And yet it your body isn’t feeling any strain. It’s calm, serene.Videl’s tune DEFINITELY changes. She looks at you in awe, Pantea grinning wide. Even Tapion and Minotia are stunned by what they’ve seen. Elder Kai chuckles. “All that training you’ve done really helped you with this, my boy. This is your ultimate strength, your potential unlocked beyond its normal limits, all thanks to my mystical arts.” He walks closer. “You won’t need any of that Super Saiyan stuff to tap into it now. Still could, but with this? It’s redundant.”(cont.)
>>4074916Your aura calms and you walk closer to your friends. “So, think it’s worth it?”Videl nods, then gives a friendly jab to your shoulder and walks towards Elder Kai. Pantea… hugs you. A quick one, but one that definitely means a lot. “I really did miss you, Gohan.”“Heh, same. So… Videl first?” you ask.“Obviously.” She holds up a… game. The Zelda game you’ve been playing! “We’ve still got more of this to finish, don’t we? A day should be plenty of time to get deeper into it… with some homework breaks, of course.”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-MMbAz-U7o8>IZUMI AND 19 SOCIAL LINK 3: COMPLETE!>IZUMI AND SACHIE SOCIAL LINK 5: COMPLETE!>IZUMI AND ZARID SOCIAL LINK 2: COMPLETE!>DRAGON BALL TUFFLE QUEST KAI #30 END!>Twitter account is @KatoQm, will have status updates there>Got some questions for the QM?

>>4074920>after that, we will be starting up Zelda again.What are your thoughts on the hitbox badonkadonk revelations?https://twitter.com/decentlymace/status/1224946431733174274?s=19
>>4074920It's always a blast, Kato! Ultimate Gohan looks like he'll be very interesting. And glad that we're getting more Zelda soon.So Pantea's first kiss was with Videl, huh? An amusing plan.
>>4074942Their dads actually. Who knows?
>>4074947Ah, they probably swapped for kissing. https://youtu.be/X0DeIqJm4vM
>>4074920>>4074923Good thread Kato! Strong finish too, glad we got that roll. Is this form compatible with Kaioken etc or is that also redundant? Maybe limit breaker?
>>4074926Glad to hear, and I got proper rest this time, promise.>>4074934[palpatine_ironic.jpg]>>4074942>>4075392Very glad to hear! Sorry that last update took so long last night, but glad that y'all enjoyed it.>>4074938My wife has told me that it must be included now. She insists it is "canon".>>4074924>>4074942>>4074947>>4074954Pantea did have... another idea in mind previously, but had a brief moment of panic over how soon it would be. She was able to calm down slightly, though still wasn't especially thrilled about the prospect.For the record, she wasn't Videl's first.
>>4076335Was it Sharpner? ...Pen?Also would definitely like to know >>4075392 too.
But what about...RAINBOOOOOOW
>>4077620Maybe Shin or the Elder knows how to magic materialize a similar material
>>4076607Good question. All I'll say it was someone close to her age.And Primus, sorry, eyes glazed over that completely! So like Elder Kai said with Super Saiyan, Gohan could boost his power a bit with the Kaio-ken, but since he's unlocked Gohan's potential beyond its normal limits, it's not going to really give the multiplicative boost it normally does. Limit Breaker could also work, though again it doesn't give as substantial a boost.>>4077620Something you'll have to plan for much later.
>>4078788>Something you'll have to plan for much later.No Kaioken multiplier? Bleh.
>>4074920Happy Birthday, Kato! Hope it's a good one!
>>4074920>>4076335>>4078788Happy Birthday, Kato! Thank you so much for all you've done for us, you're fantastic, and I hope your birthday was fun.If you'd like to read it, I finally finished something I was... honestly trying to get done by new years, but kinda kept getting stuck on. Recent thread gave me the inspiration I kinda needed. A little thing about Pantea and Videl...https://pastebin.com/hdHMi4HN
>>4087287>>4088507Thank you both for that! And thanks for that present there. Nice work on it.And everyone, hope y'all had a happy Valentines day!
>>4088518Thank you Kato, that means a lot! Glad you liked it!
