Wealth, fame, power. Gold Roger the king of the pirates obtained this and everything else the world had to offer. And his dying words drove countless souls to the seas."You want my treasure? You can have it! I left everything I gathered together in one place. Now you just have to find it!"These words lured men to the grand line, pursuing dreams greater than they ever dared to imagine. But right now you're regretting ever listening to its siren call. The voice you just heard. It's unmistakable. It belongs to the only person, no being that could strike fear into your heart. Now you count three possible courses of action you can take. First, you pull your pants up, grow a pair of balls and act like the big bad pirate you are. Meaning you run the hell away with your tail between your legs as fast as your legs can take you and most likely eat a knuckle sandwich for your troubles. The second is equally terrifying. Remaining seated and pray that she doesn't see you until you move. And lastly try to deceive her by pretending to be someone else. This would be the most likely one to work but would earn the biggest beating should you fail. And you probably will. >Book it!>Sit like a good boy and accept your fate>"Bro who?">Other?

It is natural for a pray animal to try and camouflage itselfBut this may not work in your favor>writing
She hasn't seen you yet has she? Good that means you have some time. Think! Think! She arrives and turns you around by the shoulder."Bro?"In your panic you pull on your eyes and assume a thick accent."Bro? Bro who? Me no know you! Me rocar! You go now. You go!"BONK.Predictably she clobbers you over the head hard enough to spawn three apple sized lumps stacked on each other. With your lights knocked out she drags you back to your seat and begins strangling you while shouting your head off."JUST WHAT WAS THE BIG IDEA HUH?! I find you on the ass end of the West Blue and this is how you greet me? You ungrateful little sh-""Recruit. It'd be nice if you didn't kill a civilian in a bar.""A-ah yes! Sorry vice-admiral!"Realizing what she's doing she lets go of your neck and your head falls backward as you gasp what may be your last breath. You owe that granny now big time. But as you hold onto dear life the she-devil straightens you out and stares at you for a good couple of seconds as tears slowly swell under her eyes. She goes in for a big bear hug and begins bawling loudly and crushing your spine now."I-I thought you're dead!""So. Silver is the boy you never stop talking about. Small world.""S-Silver? WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! You got a name! I'm so happy!""Okay that's enough recruit. Have some composure."Finally she lets go of you and you can collapse peacefully which allows you to recount how you got into this mess. Of course you fail to do so partly due to the brain damage from asphyxia and partly because it was never your fault. Mary Killgrew. Just about the only other kid in your "home" and the bane of your existence. She left to the sea two years ago and you hoped she got far enough that you'd never cross paths with her ever again. Clearly you're not that lucky."Now would either of you mind explaining just what kind of history you two have? Because I don't see a family resemblance.">Recount your life to the nice marine lady (gain information regarding Silver)>Let Mary do the talking (gain information regarding her)

It may not be the best idea to reveal information about yourself to a high ranking marine like that but oh well>writing
>>4487193That was what I was worried about
>>4487193You may be right, but our adoptive(?) sister woulda spilled the beans on us eventually anyway after meeting her like this. We're just speeding up the inevitable.I just hope that Marcella and Murray don't saunter into this particular bar while we're there. Telling our past to a high-ranking Marine is one thing, revealing we're a fledgeling pirate is an express ticket to a holding cell.
>>4487204What are you talking about? Impel Down is wonderful this time of year! The sword grass barely reaches your bones!
You sigh as you nurse your head wound and look at Mary who's still sniffling. She won't be able to talk like that. Good."You know where we lived Granny?""Amble Village was it? A small island that was inhabited not too long ago. I'm, I'm sorry about what happened. Ms Crybaby over there didn't talk for three days when she heard about it. Truly a tragedy. What happened there?""I'll tell you. I lost my parents when I was very little. Don't even remember them anymore. We sailed on a big boat but it crashed. I washed ashore when I was... 3? Maybe 4. But nobody else did. I don't know how long I lived there with the animals but probably more than a year. Then the people with the ships came. They settled down and found me.""And they adopted you I presume? You're adoptive siblings?""No. They put a collar around my neck and said they own me. I lived in the wood stockpile, in a house I put together from small logs. If I wanted to eat anything other than dirt I had to work. Go to the woods and mines, bring stone, iron and wood back to the village. Then they let me eat from the garbage."Old lady Tsuru doesn't seem surprised or shocked at all. But from the small frown you can tell she doesn't like what she hears."But I was the only other kid there so Mary always wanted to play with me even when the adults said no, because she was also alone. She kept calling me "little brother", the adults called me her "dog". Then she left for the marines two years ago."You recall that she joined the Marines because her mom and dad were also in the navy but she probably knows that so you skip it."And this year it got destroyed under mysterious circumstances. Nobody knows what really happened only that the entire town disappeared with no survivors."She's expecting you to give her answers. Well she'll get some."There was a fire. A big one. I was out of town when it broke out. I was building a boat to run away."That's about the gist of what happened so you cross your arms and sit back. Mary then put her hand on your back even though she knows you hate that. She takes out several crumpled up paper bellies out of her pocket and shows them to you in her clutched fist."When I heard about the island I- I thought you died! L-Look! I almost saved up enough to buy your freedom! I was going to come back but I, I was too slow! I'm so sorry little bro!"She breaks down again and Tsuru confirms what she just said."It's true. She lived on nothing but white rice and water for two years to save up money. Never told anyone why though. Up until now that is."So that's what she was planning. That makes things a bit more complicated. You never had a problem with her leaving before because it meant she didn't beat you anymore. But knowing she left to purchase you from the village chief. Oh well.
"B-But now you're here! You're alive! You can live a normal life! Once I become an officer I can take in and support you! O-Or you can join the marines and we can be together fore-""No thanks. I think the uniform looks silly and it sounds boring."She seems heartbroken from this and shows weakness you never knew she was capable of showing."I see. I guess, I guess I did let you down. As did the marines. Even mom and dad. I wrote to them about you but nobody ever did a thing because it was a small island in the middle of nowhere that wasn't part of the world government. Heh. Some Justice...""There's just one thing that's bothering me boy. What caused that fire exactly?">A pirate>It was an act of god>I don't know>Other?Note: You aren't deciding what happened back then but what you'll tell to Tsuru
>>4487222>Silver was almost a rambunctious and loving onee-san's man-slave>>4487239>I don't knowI mean, if we(the player) don't know then does it matter what we say it was?
>>4487239>I don't know
>>4487241It might deepen or ease Tsurus suspicion
>>4487239>I wish I knew. Then again I don't like to think about it.Seems like the kind of thing a kid like Silver could (and probably should) be touchy about.
>>4487239>>I don't know
Believe it or not this was the neutral optionSo no major change in Tsuru. Good job>writing
"I don't know. And I don't like recalling that time.""Understandable. Forgive me for prying. I didn't mean to bring back bad memories. I apologize."She then looks at Mary."I'll give the two of you ten minutes alone. Make the most of it recruit. Then we have to get back to business.""Yes ma'am!"She salutes and watches her CO leave the inn."Little- I mean Silver! I'm sorry about leaving you back in the day. But I felt like following mom and dad to fight for justice. For you and everyone else. In fact, mostly you. Every day when my body felt like breaking I had to remind myself of the little boy in Amble Village who never gave up no matter how much weight they put on his shoulder. You were my reason. And will be. You understand? Please nod!""I get it. Don't worry. I'm learning now."She seems to be tearing up again when she hears the word 'learn'."Good! That's good. Learn, grow and make yourself a life! I know you can. Unfortunately I can't be with you. I signed up to Granny Tsurus ship to go to the Grand Line. And now I can't back down even though I know you're here. So... take care of yourself for your big sister okay?"You nod."Good! But hey! I'm only leaving tomorrow. So what do you say about spending a little time with me tomorrow?""I'll think about it. But I may hang out with my friends instead.""F-Friends? I'm so, I'm so HAPPY!"She cracks your back again with a bear hug and goes to granny Tsuru."Take care of yourself you hear?""Okay."Good she finally left. Your 'big sister'. The siblings you never asked for nor particularly liked since you always got in trouble because of her. Either she beat you up or the adults did because 'you bothered her'. But she's still the only one from your home that you don't absolutely despise. Well, despised.Now you're free to leave this place and find your crew. Your best bet would be the ship and as luck would have it they are already there."Hey Cap'. Guess what! We're all stocked up! Got ourselves food, medicine and vitamins. Plus this!"Hook shows you her new bracelet with a strange glass globe on it."What's that?""A log pose. Murray says it's necessary to navigate the Grand Line. I'm actually getting excited now! Who knew joining a little squirt like you would get me this close to the pirates paradise?""Got some bad news. We got marines on the island.""That's not surprising. They have a training facility here. But we threw them off our trail didn't we? For all they know we already left for the Grand Line right?""True. But we need to talk about some stuff. And we need to be careful. You got a bounty don't you?""Yeah but it's pretty small. Not many people will recognize me.""How about we go out and get some dinner? We can talk about everything over a nice meal."Jaws suggests.>Good idea.>No. Let's stay on the ship as much as possible>Other?

"Good idea. I heard about a good place with some sakura trees where we could have a picnic. Plus the local food is great! We could get some on the way there."And that's what you do. You grab a variety of food, both stuff that catches your eye as well as dishes you saw served in the pub. You're especially excited about the steamed buns and want to share it with your friends. But actually getting to the trees proves to be quite difficult, an ordeal your crewmates curse you for. You need to climb a perfectly vertical mountain reaching well above the clouds just to get there and you each almost fall to your deaths at least once. The moment your heads poke over the mountain side however all of the animosity disappears.The sight is nothing short of breathtaking. A forest of pretty pink trees welcomes you on the mountaintop. Such a grand display brings a tear to the eyes of your companions and you can feel all your worries melt away at their sight. The priest said something about a man being cured of a great illness just from looking at these trees. You believe that now. The crisp air, the otherworldly sight and the crystal clear springwater is definitely having an effect on you right now. Sitting down you start eating with your friends and feel bliss. All of your worldly worries melt away and you become aware of your entire body. It's so good it almost makes you want to stay here forever. But you got work to do now. After finishing your meal you tell them about your encounter with the marines as well as your story. They listen to it all intently and wait for you to finish before asking anything."Okay. So you got a sister in the marines? Okay that's a problem. And there is a vice-admiral. That's an even bigger problem.""Doesn't matter Hook. We'll leave soon anyway.""I just got one question Silver.""Shoot Jaws.""Were you the one who started the fire?""Yes.""Why?""I wanted to feel the same warmth Mary did when she left. This was close enough."
>>4487420>"Were you the one who started the fire?"
>>4487420>"I just got one question Silver.">"Shoot Jaws.">"Were you the one who started the fire?">"Yes.">"Why?">"I wanted to feel the same warmth Mary did when she left. This was close enough."Man, Silver is a bit messed up when you take a good look at him.
>>4487454That's One Piece. Everyone is messed up more or less
>>4487420Can you specify, who's talking sometimes? I know you did in this section, but in others i had to decipher who could be saying that piece of dialogue.
>>4487463I'll try. Sorry
>>4487420>"Were you the one who started the fire?">"Yes."
"Guess you deserved a first and last big 'F you' at the very least."Hook snickers."Is that a problem?""As far as I'm concerned slavers, especially child slavers deserve no mercy."Jaws responds."Same. Don't care about a few bastards getting toasted. But I got something now. How many years did you spend there? And what made you finally leave?""I don't know Hook, I don't know. Guess over ten. And I'll tell you later. That's another story.""Fair enough."You continue with your little feast. Man these cherry blossoms are great. Even such a serious topic barely even makes you and the others budge as you keep sipping away your drinks and eat to your hearts content."Hey Silver! Drink drink!""Stop trying to give alcohol to the kid Marcella!""He's the captain! He should act like it! Besides in many countries you're considered adult if you hit 14! Silver is at least 15. And I wanna drink him under the table alongside you as well!""No thanks. Alcohol stinks.""See? He's a good boy!"Jaws swallows another one of the steamed buns."Man these are good! What's in them anyway? Never tasted anything like it!""I think the owner said... fish."Jaws freezes at Marcellas response and drops the bun in his hand. Marcella sighs at this."Look I know it's a bit messed up but you already at some and said they are good? So why don't you stop being a big baby and keep eating?"But this is not a matter of being picky as Jaws raises his hands to his throat. He seems to be choking while he's also trying to make himself throw up. He falls on his stomach and starts violently convulsing. This is enough to freak you out."W-What is going on?""I don't know! Maybe it went down the wrong hole or-"Jaws starts foaming at the mouth."Okay this is bad! We need a doctor QUICK!""B-But we're on a mountain!""Well better think fast Cap! What do we do?""W-We need to take him down!""Okay but WHERE?!">The Marines>Some local doctor>Other?
>>4487477>Some local doctor
>>4487477>>Some local doctor
>>4487477>Some local doctorShitshitshitshit. This is bad. If we take him to the marines we either need to lie and get a good roll on it, or we need to out ourselves. The former would be more preferable. Although its still not a good option. Hence why going to a local doctor is arguably the best option (aside from possibly punching Jaws in the gut really hard in an attempt to get the fish out of his system....its stupid yes but it might work)

There's no time to waste. You need a doctor and you need it now! Before you even realize it your body already transformed into that of a freaky half bat, half man creature and you quickly grab Jaws and carry him on your back. You order Hook to follow suit and she does with a little worry."Do you even know how to fly?""No. But even if I can't learn on the way down I can still cushion the fall!"Without a moments hesitation you take the plunge with Marcella screaming on your back and Jaws foaming at the mouth. Your bold claim came true as you landed belly first despite all the flapping you did with your big wings. Despite the broken bones and the ringing in your ear you manage to stand up and confirm that no harm came to your friends. Good. With Marcella giving you a hand you start asking around for a doctor in the city. Sadly nobody seems to be able to help as they don't know who could help with a fish-man. But you do get one possible lead. They say there is a demon living in the streets bearing the name Omukade that can cleanse any poison but demands a terrible price in turn. With no time and no better options you seek it out. To your surprise the address they gave you lead to a noodle shop which still had the lights on despite being so late into the night.After kicking down the door you find a half naked man with a shawl covering his face. He looks at you with the look of death in his eyes and points at a corner."That's... where you find the register.""We're not robbers! My friend is dying and he needs help quick!""Phew. That's a relief. But I'm not a doctor. I'm a chef.""PLEASE! They said you can cure any poisons! He ate some fish and fell ill!""Poison hmmm? Put him on the table."He checks the throat and tongue of Jaws after cleaning it of foam."Swelling, frothing at the mouth. This isn't poison. It's food allergy. Hold on."He goes back to the kitchen and brings out a wooden bowl alongside a tray of very odd looking ingredients. He grinds together offal, dried bugs including several spiders, frog skin, snake fangs and a strange purple liquid until they make a thick, bubbling, blue slurry."Feed this to him. Every last drop." Jaws coughs at first, his body rejecting the foul liquid but you force it down and he goes limp like a dead fish a moment later. You angrily demand what just happened to him and the chef quickly enlightens you."He's paralyzed, his muscles are relaxed so he doesn't choke. And the poison he just ate is cleansing his body as we speak. He'll have diarrhea for five days at least but it should cleanse all the fish from his body. He'll live.""Oh thank the lord.""Now about my payment-"A foul wind blows through the store, extinguishing all the candles illuminating the room. A chill runs along your spine as you wait for the demon to name his horrid price."That'll be 20.000.000 belly."You faceplant.
>>4487636I think... I see our future third crewmate.
"THAT'S the terrible price to be paid? You're not a demon you're just a stingy asshole!""Lady I just saved your friend. Better show some gratitude. And I didn't want to do it in the first place. You asked me. So pay up.""B-But we don't have that kind of money."You meekly respond."So? Go and get it. Take a loan for all I care. But pay up or there will be trouble.""What kind of trouble?"He gives you another death glare."I'll call the guards. And they don't like being bothered this late.""Sorry. But isn't there some other way to pay you?""Hmmmmm. Actually boy there is one thing you can do... Strip.""Okay.""HELL NO!"Marcella screams."What are you thinking you god damn weirdo! How about I just bash you over the head and be done with this?""I wouldn't recommend that. Somebody... might get hurt! Me."He then walks over to you and examines your heavily injured body."Impressive. Such heavy injuries and you're still standing. Maybe, maybe you could actually do it. Okay! I have another offer. If you don't want to pay in money then you could do something for me. There lives a basilisk near the town. A strong beast not even the guards can handle. It has a very potent poison that I want. If you let it bite you, survive and come back to me I can extract it from you. That'd be a fine compensation."Marcella looks at you."Well that sounds more reasonable. But you'd have to do that alone. No way I'm leaving Murray alone with this freak."Hmmmm. 20 million huh? That's a lot of money. But you might be able to get it through various means. Or you could try your luck with that monster he wants.>Go and take a loan. Not like you have to pay that back or anything>Rob a bank or something>Fight the big monster>Other?
>>4487661>Fight the big monster
>>4487661"...get bitten?? Can't we just knock it out somehow and you can get the poison on the spot?"
>>4487661>>Other?Can't we just tear out it's venom gland? Or if that's too precise for Silver just bring the whole carcass?
>>4487661>>Fight the big monster
>>4487670>>4487669Yes. Get bitten. Because a basilisk is a monster you won't likely be able to even harm
>>4487661Also stealing Crocus' bit? For shame Spooky
>>4487676Fair enough.>>4487661>Fight the big monster
>>4487677Yes. Crocus is reserved for the Straw Hats
>>4487676Well demand that he heal us first otherwise this is suicide.
>>4487685He's not a doctor. He's a chef
>>4487689And as we all know a good meal heals all wounds.
>>4487676I was thinking more along the lines of tricking the basilisk with sleep-inducing bait and then extracting the poison when it snores away.I just really don't like the idea of getting poisoned by something like a basilisk when we're already wounded.
>>4487702I'll consider it.At least I'll give you the option on how you want to handle it>writing
>>4487710Didn't you miss /qst/ and its autism Spooky?

>>4487749Actually that's a bit of a misleading name. Sadly One Piece is one of those settings where Basilisk is switched up with Cockatrice
>>4487721I mean I KNOW Spooky isn't gonna give us a gotacha bitch moment but fuck if I can't separate that from the fact that we are injured and have to go get bitten by one of mythology's most famous venomous monsters to transport some venom.It's like being told to transport magma by hand. Sure it can work in universe but fuck my soul recoils at the idea of doing it natty.>>4487743Wait is that why you two are posting at the same damn time?
>>4487755No that's pure coincidence. I was also quite surprised by it
"Basilisc you say? Fine I'll get it. But as you can see I'm pretty banged up. Can't you do something about it?""Damn it kid I'm a chef not a doctor! Best I can give you is a last meal before you bite the dust. But that's another 5 million.""But this beastie is worth 20 million for you isn't it? What's a little meal to make sure you get it?""You're cheeky. But you're right. Fine. Wait here."He goes back in his kitchen and comes out with what looks like an ordinary pork chop. But its acrid smell betrays its content."Poison?""I call it poison-chop. If you didn't gather already I'm a poison chef. I use poison to cook my meals. They enhance the flavor as well as the texture. Now try it. If you dare... to explore flavors such rich flavors."You quickly shove the meat in your mouth and feel it melt in your mouth. It's so tender it becomes jelly which explodes into pure flavor in your mouth. You feel your body reinvigorated at least partially. You're still injured but now you recovered some of the strength you bled out. Thanking him for the meal you leave Marcella with him and head to the place he told you to. It's well outside the city borders inside the mountains. You find the beast in an area it clearly decimated. Broken trees, rocks and bones litter the area, all of which is leading to a cave. Clearly the creatures lair. Peeking in you see it.The massive chicken like beast with a snakes head and white feathery tail is currently busy grooming itself to notice you. But that won't last long. Given its gigantic size and the number of skeletons littering its lair it's no wonder the guards of the kingdom can't really handle it. They probably just let it nibble some of the cattle or the peasants once in a while and leave it be. Luckily you don't have to kill it. Just get its venom. But how?>The chefs plan should work. Let it bite you and book it>Fuck that. If it bleeds you can kill it and then rip off its head>Maybe you can outsmart it. Lay a trap, then extract the venom and leave>Other?

Moving back a bit to remain unnoticed you start thinking about the problem. This thing is obviously very dangerous so avoiding the fight might be smart. But then how do you get the poison? Well maybe if it bites something else and you can take that thing away from it you could get a sample without letting it bite you. The only question is what. Obviously something living and it needs to be both big and strong enough that the basilisk doesn't swallow it whole or simply bites it in half. Where do you get something that can survive the bite of this big chicken?"Of course!"You run off in the opposite direction with your newfound knowledge. Once you find the big animal you were looking for you beat it within an inch of its life using everything at your disposal and then drag its twitching body back to the cave of the basilisk. Sadly you left your crayons back on the ship so you can't write "bite me dummy" on it. But you can break off a large branch and fan the animal so its scent goes into the cave. The basilisk starts salivating immediately and it comes out jaw first to bite into your bait. Once its fangs sink into the animals flesh you jump out from the bush you hid in and kick it in eye. As it shrieks it lets go of the bait which you snatch up and run away with it.Dragging the massive creature through the city you get a lot of attention from passerbies but you don't pay them any attention. Your goal is the noodleshop and when you reach it you knock on the door. The poison chef opens the door and he appears to be quite tired now."YEs what is i- HOLY FUCKING SHIT! I... This is not what I asked! What did you do?""I didn't want to get bitten by a poison chicken so I got another animal to get bitten. The poison is inside.""Yeah. No SHIT the poison is inside! THIS IS A FUCKING BASILISK YOU IMBECILE!You mean to tell me your solution to getting basilisk venom was to go kill a basilisk and use it as bait for ANOTHER basilisk?! How dense ARE YOU?"

"What can I say? I'm a genius!">Knowledge +From inside Hook shouts at the queer chef and laughs at him."You haven't seen anything yet! At least this time he made a plan! Usually he doesn't even bother and just causes some mayhem.""Well whatever not like I can complain."He takes out a knife and carves out a piece of the tainted meat before plucking it clean. He also extracts a fang to get a bit fresher sample. Then he goes ahead and licks the meat and squeezes the poison from the gland directly on his tongue."Whoa. Very tangy but tastes like chicken at the same time and that nutty aftertaste must be the petrifying agent. Unfortunately I can't work with this. Won't be able to replicate the unique taste without turning whatever I cook into stone. But at least now I know.""That's good but what about Jaws?""He's awake now. But he's very weak. His bowels are churning as we speak. Normally I'd kick you out onto the streets but since you brought me so much meat I think I'll make an exception. Come in. I'll serve you some basilisk stew. And while I'm cooking you can explain how you beat a world famous beast with such ease."
Sadly I have to end things here. My hand is hurting like crazy which is why these last two posts were of such shoddy quality. But the bit between my thumb and index finger is aching and it's quite uncomfortableSo I wish you all a good night. Tomorrow I'll do some clean up on the archive and pastebin front
>>4487940Sleep well dude. Hopefully this chef becomes our next crew member.
>>4487940Take it easy Spooky
Okay let's correct things since I'm a massive shitter and forgot to do it at the start. I've either become too autistic or not autistic enough to do this in my absenceHere's my twitter: @SpookyngQMUpdated pastebins:https://pastebin.com/wJpjGUtPhttps://pastebin.com/V5mh2Pa8Just added a few tidbits to the char sheet and the marines to the socials. If you feel like I should add something else I'm all ears.And finally the archives: (Apparently I'm still too retarded to do it right the first time)http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?searchall=West+Blue+Seadogs+I also decided to hold off on the side stuff for now. Nothing significant is happening in the background that I can't introduce in the quest itself
Sadly tomorrow I got a lot of stuff to do such as shopping but Tuesday I'll be able to run most likely15:00 GMT
So your first mate is going to recover. That makes you feel relieved. "How are you doing Jaws?" "C-Cap. Don't let me eat mystery food ever again." "You got it! Now then... nightie night!" You collapse and headbutt the table the fishman is resting on. The owner of the place comes and puts you on another table, spreading you like a slab of meat to examine you closely. He observes your accumulated wounds as well as the general composition of your body. "Hmmmmm. Seems like he got a few extra wounds tussling with the monster. But his old ones are already healing." He looks at Marcella and mostly ignores Murray to let him heal. "I have so many questions. Like how he got this badly wounded in the first place. Did you jump off a cliff or something? Or get beaten by a Hasshoken user? But most importantly... how is it possible that a brat like him knows how to perform Life Return? Just who are you people?" "We're the Silver Pirates." "Pirates huh?" An entire night passes before you wake up with a loud yawn. The chef that saved your friend gets up from his newspaper and gives you a bowl of surprisingly edible looking soup. "Basilisk stew. Eat. There's plenty more where it came from." You're understandably hungry. But this is the guy who charged you 20 million for soup last time. Granted it was healing soup but still. >Thanks! >No thanks >Other?
>>4491177>>Thanks!Also Silver knows Life Return?! That gives us a loooot of options
>>4491186A lot of people know it a bit just passively. You don'tYou can piece it together with what I gave you as well as a bit of lore knowledge. But yes. You do have the basics of Life Return
Time to gorge yourself on food of questionable quality>writing
You admit you are feeling a bit peckish so you agree without giving a hoot about the possible repercussions, such as being massively in debt again. So you courteously accept his offer."Food! Food! Food!"You start slamming the table with knife and fork in hand only to get slapped with a pair of chopsticks.The slightly ired chef then brings you a bowl of his basilisk soup. Apparently he has a massive cauldron filled with the stuff. So you're going to help him out with that. You consume bowl after bowl after bowl until you make a pretty little mountain of dirty dishes on your table. He watches in horror as you consume every drop of his savory creation."T-Thanks. I thought I have to dump that thing into the sewers. But you just ate up enough food that could keep my kitchen running for five days straight.""BUUUUUUUUURP! No problem!""Now then. How do you plan on moving?"He pokes your belly with his chopsticks, sending ripples through it. It's making you queasy. But you just take a deep breath and as you exhale your body shrinks like a deflating balloon."I thought so. That's Life Release. Without a doubt.""Wifewhat?""LIFE. Release! You guys were at Sakura Hill weren't you? To think... some monks spend decades meditating there and learn nothing. But you just go up there and manage to attain inner awareness. How did you do it?""Don't know. The trees just told me.""The trees. The trees told you. It's okay if you don't want to tell me but don't take me for a fool. I really don't like it when people think I'm an idiot..."He gives you another death glare."It makes me sad!"And he's now crying."But I'm not. I just listen to advice and sometimes things answer. Like trees.""Okay. What does this table tell you?""That you don't get many customers.""That's cheating. You just swiped your fingers across and saw the dust...""It's the same. You just have to know where to look and you can find answers anywhere."He doesn't get what you're saying and just shrugs."Whatever. Anyway your friends are still sleeping and will for a while. The fishman couldn't get any rest and the lady watched over you two. So go ahead and occupy yourself for a while. After that I'd like you to get out of my shop.""Okay.">You should go and check out the school since you earned an admission>Help the cook clean up the mess you just made>Try and find the nice granny from yesterday>Other?
>>4491236>Help the cook clean up the mess you just made.This confirms it, Silver can hear the Voice of All Things. You're really giving us a broken mc.
>>4491236>You should go and check out the school since you earned an admission
>>4491247Not really? Most everyone is bullshit in One Piece. You still get wrecked the second you enter the GL.And protagonists are bound to have these kind of powers

>>4491278wait wha-AH SHIT
You notice him sizing up the mound of filth your little feast spawned and roll up your sleeves as you walk up to him."Need a hand?"He smiles and accepts it. Helping him take the plates into the kitchen you drop a few of them which makes him angry but just a bit. He found it acceptable that a few of the dozens of bowls break on their way to the kitchen. What he does not find acceptable is you dropping them after he hands them over to you after washing. It was his fault not specifying that after drying the bowls you were supposed to put them away and not just drop them. He got out his chopstick again and somehow grabbed you by the wrist and flung you across the entire room for that stunt. After your little beating you manage to clean up without any further incidents and sit down in front of the noodle shop, nursing your wounds.He joins you and sighs. The two of you just stare at the streets as people pass by without as much as glancing in the shops direction."Wow. Your food doesn't suck THAT bad!""Shut it."He seems to reflexively pull up his scarf at your little jab."Maybe if you lowered your prices you'd get customers.""I don't get them anyway. At least I can squeeze a bit of money out of unknowing tourists like this. But even then my heart stops me.""You always send people to fight monsters instead of paying? You're a weirdo.""I don't want to hear that from you. And no. I send them out to get me exotic poisons. Were it not for my passion I'd be free of debt now.""Debt?""I was found guilty of a crime and have to pay a fine. I'm not going to explain myself to anyone. Least of all a pirate.""Why?""I said I don't want to talk about it!">Keep prying>Snatch his scarf and keep it hostage until he speaks up>Why poison though?>Okay (Go on a walk)>Other?
>>4491315>Why poison though?
>>4491315>>Why poison though?
Bingo! That's the correct one.You get to go to Hasshoken School after all>writing
"Can I still ask a question though?""Sure... I guess.""Why poison?"Despite not seeing his mouth you can tell he's smiling just from his eyes."Well. Let me tell you a story-"Many years ago in the land of Kano a great calamity broke out. Over night people started getting sick. The doctors quickly identified the cause but it brought no salvation. Poison. All of the country's food supply was tainted from grain to fruits and vegetables. Even domestic animals and fish were not free of it. The taint was not visible, nor did it affect the plants or animals. But people who ate from them got very ill. There was a cure but it was expensive and there wasn't enough for anyone, nor did it provide immunity to a second infection. But there was one boy who couldn't watch as his home started to fall into ruin. He tried to do the impossible, to find a solution to the epidemic.He toiled without rest for days only sleeping when his body finally collapsed only to start again. But his work did bear fruit. He managed to do what was thought impossible. He became familiar enough with the poison that he could detect it and as such he could cut it out. This meant he had to exhaust his ingredients, using only morsels but it was safe to eat. When word got out that his food was safe to eat the entire city lined up to him. He couldn't feed everyone at first but day by day he improved. He could cook a lot more and in time he was even capable of cooking the poison itself. The deadly venom became a delicacy adding to the flavor and altering the texture of his food. What was once a deadly pathogen ravaging his country became but another spice on his rack. "They called me the master of poisons after that. Funny. I hated poisons at first. But after that... I had a dream. To eat every poison in the world! And then I'll eat death itself!""Pfffft. Kekekekekekek!""What's so funny? Do you think I'm kidding? This is science! A king once ate poison every day to develop an immunity to it! It's called mithridatism and it works! I'll learn to cook every lethal thing on the world and after eating them I'd be immortal!""I'm not laughing at that. It's just funny!""What is?""That you're still here. You say you want to taste every poison right? So why aren't you at sea yet and experience it all?""I... can't. I have a debt to pay.">So?>Oh. I see. I forgot>Other?
>>4491404>>So?Huh did Magellan attack this country or a previous venom fruit user I wonder.
Encourage them dreams Silver!>writing
>>4491404I want this guy as our chef!
>>4491461I secretly hope we'll have some antagonist too very soon, maybe the one who the chef is indebted to. I liked how in OP there was this obstacle to overcome to get the new crew member to truly join
You grin."So? You spent so much time in your kitchen, saved a city when nobody else could. If you didn't exist there wouldn't be anyone to owe to. ""A-Are you daft? Do you not know how the world works? If the Happo navy were to EVER find out I-""Nope!""Heh. You just love to make enemies don't you?""Rule No. 1 of being a pirate: My enemy is my teacher! And since I'm not very smart I need a lot of teachers! Teacher... OH POOP! I forgot I should be at the Hasshoken Academy right now! Hey Mister can I leave my crew here? I need to go to school very quick!""You study Hasshoken? Wait... they let you IN?""Yeap! Thanks for taking care of my friends! I'll come back soon!"And you take off as fast as your legs can carry you."Come on go go go! I'm late! I'm late! I'M LATE!"As you desperately try to go faster you feel your body getting lighter and smaller. Very quickly you change into a tiny bat and start flapping your wings out of instinct. To your amazement you take flight rather easily even if you almost fall out of the sky because of your uneven strokes. This way you can traverse the city much faster and get to the Hasshoken school in about 20 minutes. You stop a block away from the place and spend another minute to somehow turn back into human form. The guards let you in without a fuss and tell you that the headmaster is very annoyed by your absence.On entering you start apologizing to him and he stops you."I'm not angry boy. I'm just annoyed. Not many people have the luxury of gaining admission to the academy and even less would have the gall to show up late. But what's important is you're here. So let us begin. I'm eager to see just how talented you are exactly."He then takes you into the dojo where he presents you with several options and asks you to choose your preferred method of training. Normally he'd make that decision for you but since you're an outsider he doesn't really understand your capabilities.>Sparring with a high ranking practitioner>Be instructed by the headmaster himself>Read the scrolls in the library>Other?
>>4491475You're gonna wish you didn't say that very soon

Hey, i have an idea!Let's go find a pirate or some other low-life with roughly the same body shape as our new cook, then stuff him so full of poison that after he dies, he's unrecognizable!Then we just leave him to rot in the cook's kitchen, and everyone will think he poisoned himself to death!

"I choose fighting the strong guys!""Oh?""Last time I got a hit in with my karate. I want to do it properly this time!""Then so be it. But I'm warning you. This won't be like at the gates. That was your entry exam. This is will be a proper fight. A single hit won't get you out of it. And you almost died last time.""Yeah but that was then! So let's go! Where are your strongest guys so I can kick their asses?"The headmaster gets one of his best pupils to fight you. Judging by his look he must not give you too much credit. And who could blame him? You're an untrained newcomer about to face off against one of his senior disciples. In his mind he probably already signed you off as dead. And to some extent he was right to do so. Your foe is much like the guard was yesterday, very seasoned, very talented. Without your weapons or devil fruit you were hardly a match to him and he handily mopped the dojo floor with you. Literally, with your blood.But no matter how many bones he cracked and how much pain he put you through you stood up. And it might just be the several concussions finally doing you in but you start to get what he's doing. Every time he hits you it feels like your whole body is shaking. That must be the trick to it like the manipulation of water is to Fishman Karate. Unfortunately you don't know exactly how they create these vibrations. So you need to get creative.>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4J7K3yacig4Standing up battered and bloodied you present yourself to your opponent and let him hit you in the jaw. After taking so many of his hits you manage to finally stand your ground and while his attack is still going you swing your arm at him. Your entire body, including your arm is reverberating from his punch so when you land yours he's technically getting hit by his own force. He staggers backwards as he spits up some blood. You smile."I get it now! All I need is a name... how do you guys do it? Oh I think I get it."You walk up to your foe and put what you learned to a test. Raising your fists you start shaking them fast enough to replicate the sensation from before and unleash a flurry of blows at him."Hasshoken! Buken: Ranbu!"The martial artist starts blocking your punches. He tries to do everything in his power to stop them from colliding but he's failing. As soon as you're about to land a direct hit on him he starts screaming and your fists stop."STOP! I YIELD! Y-You monster!""Afraid to get hit? Okay."
The guy gets escorted out but not very gracefully. Apparently cowardice is not looked at fondly here. Poor guy. But at least he got weeded out here and not on the battlefield. At the very least the headmaster seems pleased by this to the point that he can barely contain himself."I thought the next time I'd see such strength would be when the current Don would finally have children! But to think it's an outsider! I don't know whether to laugh or cry!""You sound disappointed gramps.""Disappointed? Far from it. Boy if you agreed to stay here I'd turn you into something worthy of legends! I have no doubt you could even marry into the royal family!""No thanks.""Hah. I see. Such strength can not be contained so easily hmm? But still I'd like you to consider staying a little at the very leas-""GRAND MASTER!"Suddenly another guy storms into the room and fails to notice you. Or maybe he does but he doesn't recognize you through all that blood."You NEED to get rid of that outsider right NOW!""How dare you interrupt me now of all times! Don't you realize-""You don't understand master! Look!"He spreads a paper before the old guy."He's a criminal. A pirate!"He takes the parchment with shaking hands. But he doesn't seem angry or even upset. He just looks excited. He slowly looks up at the wall where pictures of various people are hung, you guess they are members of the dojo. One of them is a cone headed guy whose portrait is different from the rest as it's on the same type of paper that he's holding. Then he turns to you and mutters."Twenty. Twenty... million!"
>>4491560Ah yes, "Face to fist style". I see Silver is a proficient user.
And that's the end for today.Strap in lads because we're Big Boy Pirates nowHave a good fucking night!
>>449157820 mil already? Our efforts to mask that ship theft didn't work out huh?>>4491584Thanks for the run QM
>>4491593well, they may or may not know where we are right now, but they know our face and they know what we did.Not sure it was worth a twenty million bounty, but hey, not complaining.
>>4491584Cheers for the run Spooks!
>>4491593That was only so they didn't recognize the ship. Then we let that guy take our pic.
>>4491593Masking the ship was *never* gonna stop us from getting a Bounty, wasn't even the point in doing it.It was just a way to keep the Marines from immediately breathing down our necks.Of course, now that we do have a Bounty poster whatever Marine personnel are in Kano Country are going to keep their eyes open for us so... we may have wasted the masking effort.>>4491560>"Hasshoken! Buken: Ranbu!"I'm getting way too hung up on what this translates to.
>>4491601They know we're in town since we just posed for that picture.>>4491612I'm just surprised the Navy put two and two together so quickly.
>>4491615>I'm just surprised the Navy put two and two together so quickly.There must be a genuine decent marine somewhere nearby actually doing his job.
>>4491615depends on whether the photographer sold us out or not.and a smart marine might notice where we are from stuff in the background.so, it's not 100% certain they know, but we should get a move on either way.
20 mil for someone who stole (and has eaten, but they don't know it yet) a DF is not even that much.If they knew all the shit we've done (like arson and poneglyph hugging) we would probably be sitting on at least 10 times that lmao.
>>4491584Great run lad. I can’t wait to see what’ll happen next time.
>>4491612>I'm getting way too hung up on what this translates to.Eight Impacts Fist, Military Fist: Wild DanceThey don't overly complicate names. It's usually Military something. They seem to have only 1 attack with a fancy name>Masking the ship was *never* gonna stop us from getting a BountyPretty much. It's more to cover up the navy bits because that's how you get a lot of fucking attention from everyone when you go into port>>4491606Yeah you kinda willingly did that. If you didn't spare the marines and didn't let Arthur snap you into his cringe compilation you wouldn't have it for now>>4491615>I'm just surprised the Navy put two and two together so quicklyThey can be surprisingly competent and quick when they want to. When someone is not bribing them or the higher ups are not purposefully trying to stop the mooks from doing their jobs>>4491628He didn't sell you out. He just saw your description and knew it had to be you so he sent in his photo. And Morgans is not too keen on sharing information that might prevent BIG NEWS from happening>>4492132>20 mil for someone who stole a DFThat's the primary reason but the devil is in the detailsDon Krieg had a comparable bounty of 17 million and did similar stuff. He antagonized the marines and got his first ship by stealing it from them.But here are the differences. He had an army and a lot of guns. You have 2 extra dudes. You strolled into a three-way between civvies, a pirate crew and marines. You butted out the pirates like you own the place and turned on the navy immediately. You did not kill them, instead tied up, blinded and dropped them off somewhere. Plus you have an already established small time pirate and a Fishman (not often found outside the Grand Line) following youThe WG issues bounties for two reasons. Either you're a psycho or you're competent. And they are much quicker to act on the latter because that's the one that's actually bad for them
>>4492457>Either you're a psycho or you're competent. And they are much quicker to act on the latter because that's the one that's actually bad for themShichibikirero offer when?
>>4492457Oh yeah, definitely. We oscillate between idiot savantery, cunning competence and being retarded mules. It's great, and very One Piece. Good job on getting the tone down pat.
>>4492646Couldn't agree more. Good job QM!
Did anyone archive the last thread?
>>4492948I did but fucked it as is tradition. I'm STILL not over the first archive of GHQhttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?searchall=West+Blue+Seadogs+
>>4492954Are you still looking for devil fruit ideas? I've always wanted to play around with the idea a rope paramecia that creates and controls rope. The name Noose-Noose Fruit comes to mind. Would be super useful on a ship if you attached rope to everything and had one person helming the entire ship by themself.
>>4492646>>4492666Ah yes that's the good shit right there!Thanks!>>4493029Forever and alwaysCan't guarantee all make it in but I do like the optionsAnd even if major characters don't get them minor ones might
By the way I'm also curious about what kind of crew members you want. Roles to be specificYou'll need a few standard ones like a doc and a mechanic but what else do you want besides every wacky clown you come acrossMusician? Pet? Something else,
>>4493981cuck SHs and recruit Robin
>>4493981Lets get a giant
>>4493981Just a regular guy who can do card tricks.
>>4494052I could see the shenanigans if literally only Silver wants him as part of the crew entirely because of the card tricks.>silver he's literally just a regular guy>BULLSHIT, CAN A REGULAR GUY DO THAT (as card guy is doing a slightly-above-average-complexity card trick)
>>4494057>You don't get it he can shuffle with ONE HAND! Imagine how fast it would be if could use them both!>You could just ask him to shuffle with both.>HE CAN SHUFFLE WITH BOTH HANDS!?>Uh, I'm right here guys..I can only imagine the rumors that would float around about the mysterious card shark on Silver's ship. What a dangerous man he must be. Alas a useless crewman who exists only for a gimmick is a waste of space.
>>4493981> A hunter could work since while they would only be able to secure food on land there are no allergies to worry about. They could also pull double duty as marksman.
>>4493981Honestly I'm down for someone who does card tricks. We could make it that they also do tarot readings and are generally charismatic and/or a con man of sorts, lord knows we need a socialite in this group.Expecially if we take this Chef/Doc which is clearly not a crowd pleaser. (I like him though).
>>4494120Someone that good with their hands could work as a pickpocket
>>4493981>>4493993Yeah this, i want a giant.I want a musician, a storyteller, a beer brewer, a fortune teller, a magician, a mermaid, and most importantly of allI want a pet.Not a huge, oversized pet. Something as big or smaller than we are.Maybe a large cat or a wolf of some sort.But it has to be the most dangerous motherfucker you've ever seen, and intelligent at that.
>>4494088What kind of hunter would be best?Pith helmed honourabu?Tacticoo cameo tryhard?Humble woodsman?Salty spearfisher?>>4494052>>4494057>>4494061>pic related
>>4494156>Fisherman is out due to Jaws' allergies
>>4494173Only jaws is allergic, and apparently only to regular fish, since he can eat seaking.We're still going to need an expert fisherman to feed the rest of the crew, and to lure in sea kings and whatnot to feed jaws as well.
>>4494173Fisherman to feed the rest of the crew while Jaws eats food from storage still works and cuts down on food bills, ain't no grocer like the ocean.
>>4493981Defintely a Helmsman, we need a skilled getaway driver if we keep picking up all this trouble.
>>4494179 and >>4494184True, but I don't want to risk him accidentally eating fish or fish "contaminating" the other food
>>4494201Good thing we've got a chef specialized in handling poison, then!No way a guy like that could accidentally contaminate his food.
>>4493993>>4494145Giant is definitely planned but not anytime soon. Because they are a bit busted>Pet>DangerousI uh... I thought of a South Bird. Because parrots. Need to rethink that now>>4494061>>4494057>>4494052>>4494037Could work. Either as an Usopp or I can roll him into another archetype to be more useful>>4494088Oh nice. That didn't occur to me. Though you don't really need to worry about food allergies anymore>>4494156The PredatorJokes aside I have no idea. Will do soon though>>4494184>>4494179Fisherman is not bad either. Angry dude with spear or a really old alcoholic guy spewing profanities 24/7 would be funOr the magician bamboozling fish with magic tricks to catch them>>4494198Jaws covers that pretty well. He'll be the substitute when Silver is out fighting>>4494201>>4494203If Omukade knows one thing it's shit that'll kill you. Eating his stuff is 100% safe. Guaranteed to only barely not kill you. That's how you get strong. And by drinking your milk every day>>4493987Soon
>>4494317>I would suggest a dive to get under sea treasures but well fishman
>>4494335Get a mechanic or someone technically minded and you can all go diving.You can't swim but put on diving gear and you can go in the water no problem
>>4494317can we get a Seaking as a pet? Like a baby one?Also I want some mad scientists guy, Who everybody thinks is a hack but is actually like super ahead of everybody else. Not in terms of like devil fruit research or shit, but like "AH YES, A NEW SUPER METAL!""How do you make it?""Seashells!""and your fired."
>>4494346>Baby sea kingFuck me...>Silver! What happened? You almost drowned!>I heard someone say "sleep with the fishes" and wanted to try it>And what's that?>It followed me home. Can I keep it?>Mad scientist thought a hack by everyone but he's just that advancedSo Hiriluk but big science man instead of doctor?
>>4494346Our own pet sea monster like Momoo would be great. Help with underwater exploration now that Silver can't do it himself, help Jaws in attacking/defending from the water, haul the ship so we don't need to worry about the wind dying, and just being super cute.
>>4494354Oh god, yes. Thats a very cursed thought.>Doctor can you look into medical advancements for us?>Medical? Thats not REAL SCIENCE! eat these berries and call me in 5 hours!
>>4494364>You have terminal cancer?>Fool! Why do you bother me with this?>Just sing Binks sake for five hours and drink some milk like a NOT retarded person would!
>>4494317How about we get a tailor? They can fix clothes/sails and help with stitches
>>4494317What we need is a good old fashioned barber surgeon; surgery, dental work, shave and a haircut.
>>4494368>It fucking works.>Nobody believes him until his miles away.>everybodys DOUBT is what hinders his true science from working and when its not a doubtful area he EXCELS
>>4494397>>4494402Both great ideas, I'm down for either.
>>4494317One last suggestion since I keep getting ideas, a smuggler. Someone who knows which contraband to buy at an island and how to hide it and other valuables on our ship
>>4494414Fuck yes. That reminds me of the original Pirates of the Carribean game, the one that was made before the movies but got the black pearl quickly shoved into it for marketingRemember constantly smuggling in there. Approved>>4494402>>4494397All of these could be rolled into one person to save space. Or even just a machine on the ship. But sounds interesting.
>>4494317>silver looks for a fisherman>it's a grumpy old man with a parrot on his shoulder, a peg leg and a whaling harpoon>he's really goddamn old, and wise at that>ends up becoming a father figure for silver>silver is the only one who listens intently to his stories and gleans the wisdom from them
Okay lads. Friday 15:00 GMT should be the next time I run. Fingers crossed>>4494454But here's the plot twist. The parrot is the fisher and the old man just speaks for it
Guys, let’s get a farmer.

The headmaster looks at the student that just barged in and sends him away, stating that he'll handle this personally. Once the room clears he displaces his robe as he walks up to the wall lined with portraits."14 years. It's been 14 long years since Don Sai and his brother set foot in here. They were the last two actual talents that I had the pleasure of meeting. Since then it's been nothing but wannabe fighters and loudmouths. And now the marines will show up any second to capture you. Then it's straight to the gallows."He surprises you by headbutting the wooden beam supporting the wall. His forehead splits open and begins to bleed as he looks at you."Boy...

"Yes. But it's not like I have a choice.""That's good enough!"He then smashes his head into a pillar again and you shout at him, asking if he's an idiot."Sorry. I have to make it look like you forced my hand. Now follow me!"He takes you out of the dojo and into a broom closet of all places where he reveals a fake wall. You start salivating at the secret doors awesomeness."This tunnel leads out of the district. It was built to extract the children of nobles in case the dojo was attacked. You can use this to get out!""Cool! Then see you later gramps I gotta-""Just where do you think you're going? The place is full of traps. I'll guide you out!"You nod as the old guy lets go of your collar and stops choking you. He leads you through the spike, poison and guillotine traps that just litter the place. You even get to see a few skeletons but you are stopped from taking their skulls as souvenirs. The exit leads to a big door that's apparently the lid of a big barrel standing in the middle of a market. The wine seller it belongs to is a trusted associate of the dojo."Well this is it. Thanks gramps!""Take care and-WATCH OUT!""Whoa!"As you open the door a sword almost chops off your head but you manage to slide under it. Doing a flip you stand up and see several marines wearing big coats surrounding you. All ladies. And they are lead by the granny with the big coat. She looks like she's about to rush in and grab you.

"Stupid little boy. What have you done? Now I'm forced to discipline you. I hope you don't have any objections because it's a bit too late for regret.""Hehe! Just one!"YOu stare down the granny fearlessly as if you're standing up to her suddenly very imposing presence."IGOTTAGO!"You make a mad dash to the side, jumping over pedestrians and market stalls alike, tossing anything and everything you get your hands on in the air. The sheer amount of chaos and confusion in both the civilians and the marines is enough to hold up your pursuers. The marine ladies tumble over the tsunami of garbage you tossed their way. They get so annoyed by it that they actually jump several feet into the air until it looks like they are flying. You freak out for a moment before thinking of something to do about them."Err... CATCH!"You grab random passerby's and toss them into the air. They scream and wave their arms around. The marines stop as they are forced to catch them in their flight. And you laugh. At least until you see the granny running after you."Have you girls no shame? Forcing an old lady like me to run?""S-Sorry Tsuru-san!"Freaking out you pick up the pace while screaming, leaving the ladies behind but try as you might the granny is not giving up. She starts catching up and reaches out to grab you. You better start turning into a bat and fly away soon."Woshu Woshu-"You blink once and when you open your eyes somehow you're drenched in water and hung out to dry like a piece of clothing."EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEH?!""Look at you-"She starts tapping her shoulder."Doing stupid things like that. Making the sister that cares about you so much worried to death like that. Do you even understand the position you put her in? She'll be lucky if she gets out unscathed. Well not like it matters now. While you dry take your time to come up with an apology for her and a confession for the jury. With a little luck and two votes of confidence from she and I you might be spared the gallows. If you agree to becoming a marine that is.""OY! GRANNY! What's this? I don't care if you're old I'll kick your ass when I get down from here!""What?"
Old lady Tsuru just stares at you like you just insulted a celestial dragon which serves as the perfect opening for the two figures that are approaching you. A massive anchor comes crashing down next to you which forces Tsuru to jump back. You can't really turn your head to look but you can guess and your suspicion is confirmed when you hear their voices."Captain! We heard the commotion and thought to check things out!""JAWS!""And I'm here too."That's the voice of the chef guy."The girl is prepping the ship. You better head out as soon as possible.""He insisted on helping. Orders captain?">Get me down from here!>That granny is crazy! Stop her!>Other?

"Get me down from here Jaws!""Roger. Erm... how do we do that?"The chef answers Jaws' question."She's a devil fruit user. She hangs out people to dry.""Oh? So what if he gets dry? Does he become normal again?""Who knows? But I suggest you do it quick. I'll hold her off."He then springs into action while Jaws uses his fishman karate to punch the water off of your body which causes you to spring back into the third dimension screaming "FREEDOM". Meanwhile the Chef is staring down Tsuru who seems reluctant to act."Gu Omukade. I heard what happened to you. It's tragic but if you continue to assist these pirates you'll only hurt your case.""My case? You mean a debt I could never pay off...""You should be glad you were spared the gallows. You killed an navy official.""Justice? I tracked down the men poisoning my country, I butchered them down to the last man. And the official you speak of let it all happen for MONEY!""You took justice into your own hand! Their lives were not yours to take! You must pay for what you did!""I DID!"He removes his scarf and reveals his jawline where everything under the nose was apparently burnt by a strong chemical. And it's slowly dripping with some sort of purple stuff. As it lands on the ground it starts sizzling."So go ahead! Wash me. I'm sure it'll work out just fine!"He seems quite mad. Mad enough to start scraping his jaw with his chopsticks to coat them in the purple stuff. But he held off Tsuru with his taunt long enough and that's all that you really care about. Free of your wet bondage you're free to act once more and transform into a half-bat. Jumping into the air you grab the shoulders of Jaws and Gu with your clawed legs you start flapping and somehow take off. Though it only results in a high jump which lets you get on the rooftops. Looks like you can't exactly fly yet in that form, much less carry 2 people. But you're getting there.Meanwhile Tsuru is staring at you from afar."A new flying type?!"
You turn back into a human as you and your pals run on the roof of the buildings."Wait you're a devil fruit user as well?!""Yeap. But I'm no good yet. I can only fly in regular bat form.""Doesn't matter. We're close to the docks now. Once we're on we can set sails and get out immediately right?""We?"You ask him."Of course. I'm dead if I stay here..."Jaws then grumbles."Well whatever the case we better hurry. A storm is approaching."With the roofs offering a convenient shortcut you manage to reach the docks with the marines still a few blocks behind. However a teensy weensy obstacle stands between you and the safety of Dauntless. Mary somehow found her way here. And as the dark clouds gather over you she seems adamant about stopping you in your tracks. She raises a curved sword and points it at you with tears in her eyes."Please... don't!"Is all she can say.>Guys. Let's take her out>Go ahead. I'll handle this>OUT OF THE WAY!>Other?
>>4495564>Go ahead. I'll handle this
>>4495564>>OUT OF THE WAY!
>>4495564>>Guys. Let's take her out
>>4495564>OUT OF THE WAY!
Wow she doesn't even get a talk and just gets the same treatment Luffy gave to Sai in Dressrosa? Okay>writing
>>4495596Well she did hit Silver and was super pushy with him, even if she was the only nice one. I mean Garp loved his grandsons but boy was he a terrible fucking grandparent. Sorry Mary, but you're an asshole.
>>4495602Plus Tsuru can't be far behind and it will look better for Mary in the eyes of the navy if she gets the shit beat out of her.
You look at her with her shaking hand, tear filled eyes and zero determination. She's in pain and most likely couldn't fight you even if she was ordered to. So you know what she wants. She wants to talk you out of piracy. Join the marines and whatnot. But becoming a nameless grunt? Obeying the orders of others? Never again.Your men don't know her nor do they need to. Jumping forward you grab her by the shoulder and toss her off the pier and into the sea while screaming."OUT OF THE WAY!"She doesn't scream, she doesn't wail. All you hear from her is the splash she makes and the sound of her surfacing. When Jaws notices your unusual treatment of her he asks who she was to which you reply "nobody important". Climbing on board the Dauntless you see a big pile of marines that have been beaten bloody by Marcella already."Come on jerkoffs we can't waste any more time!""Are we ready to set sails?""Of course Silver!""Then full sails! I'm driving! Jaws, show Gu the ropes! This'll be a rough one."A bit after you leave port you spot two ships coming from the sides trying to encircle you. A third one leaves the dock in pursuit. Most likely that's the one with granny. But you do manage to sail past the first two leaving all three following your trail. They are big, bigger than your little caravel that's for sure and they pack more cannons as well. But their size is a big drawback as you are much faster than them. Even with all the cannon fire raining down on you it's still worth it for the speed."They are NOT giving up Silver!"Hook screams as she's tying some knots.You quickly survey the area. The coming storm would be perfect to loose them but it'd be dangerous for you as well. Alternatively you could just head straight for Reverse Mountain and hope that you loose them on the way there. Of course that'd mean they can freely aim at you. Or... and this might sound crazy. You could go into an even more dangerous territory where they wouldn't DARE to follow you.>Head for the storm>Let's race them to the Grand Line>Fuck it! Balls to the wall!>Other?

"Hold onto your butts!"You turn the wheel towards the coming black clouds and the ship follows your command."This is gonna be rough!""CAPTAIN! THE STORM IS APPROACHING FAST!""KEK! I AM the storm that is approaching! Brace for impact and pray to God that the marines handle it worse than us!"Your crew starts screaming as they scamper to act. Marcella grabs some chains and binds them to the main mast as well as her waist and Gu's while the two men are trying to bring in the sails. But you quickly order them to stop. You want to do this with full sails. They call you crazy, reckless and an idiot. But it doesn't matter. Only the result does. Releasing yourself to the storm you let it carry the ship and though it threatens to tear your vessel apart you manage to ride the stormy winds which carry you farther and farther away from the marines. The cannon shower is replaced by grape sized droplets of rain constantly bombarding you as giant waves catch the steel balls mid flight."CAPTAIN! ROGUE WAVE AT THE STARBOARD BOW!""Thanks Jaws! I always wanted to ride one of those!""NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"You manage to catch the large wave and ride it to safety while it also topples one of the marine ships. Judging by the speed at which the navy vessels shrink behind you and the trouble they are having thanks to the storm you'd say you lost them. Good thing too because as things start calming down you hear the ship creaking a bit too much for your liking. Not to mention all the panting from your crew members. Pansies. Can't even enjoy a near death experience on the high seas!You jump down to the main deck and pat them all on the back."Good job everyone! We all live! Now let's get back to work and-"BONK"SHUT UP! We almost DIED back there you stupid little shrimp!"Marcella shouts at you after beating you over the head."Is it always like this?"Gu asks."No. It's usually worse."Jaws answers."What the hell did I get myself into?"You point at him and wag your finger."No backsies!"But it looks like they are a bit agitated after your stunt. Still with the navy now hot on your trail you can't really rest. Not until you are certain you're out of harms way. But it also might serve you well to throw a little party to celebrate.>Okay. Since you did so well how about we relax a bit?>No. Party time only comes after you get to the Grand Line>Other?
>>4495706Maybe we should get out of the storm before we start partying.
>>4495706>>No. Party time only comes after you get to the Grand Line
>>4495706>No. Party time only comes after you get to the Grand Line
>>4495706>>Okay. Since you did so well how about we relax a bit?
>>4495706>No. Party time only comes after you get to the Grand LineWe need to inoculate our crew to crazy, and the only way to do it is more crazy.The way we're treating it, the Dauntless is going to have a very short service record. Are we sure the ship can take Reverse Mountain?
>>4495706>Okay. Since you did so well how about we relax a bit?
>>4495732True but it looks like they get a bit of rest before shit REALLY hits the fan>writing
"Alright. You guys did well so you earned it. But let's wait until we pass the storm."You come to an agreement and Gu goes in the kitchen to make some preparations while the rest of you more seasoned sailors make sure you don't turn the ship on its head. Once you're in the clear and on a direct course for reverse mountain however you all gather in the mess hall and start having your first party as a proper pirate crew and the last you'll have in the West Blue. But before you can begin Gu comes out of the kitchen looking visibly upset."Okay. Who was the donkey who bought all that milk? Half of the place is filled with milk jugs."You raise your hand because milk is important for strong bones."I... adore you."He presents you with copious amounts of snacks as well as a few bottles of liquor from his home. You start eating and the others start drinking. They seem to start warming up to each other as they now no longer have any reservations about Gu being here. Even Marcellas normally cold attitude is somewhat warmed up now. However you refuse to drink any alcohol. But as the party gets going certain topics you expected to pop up do."So uh... what's the deal with your names? You're Murray and you're Marcella right? So what's with those goofy names like Jaws and Hook?""Better get used to it poisonman. Because Silver is not good with names. Soon you'll have something equally ridiculous."Marcella responds."I politely refuse. But if I may ask one more thing... I know why I'm here however I have no clue about you. What's your reason for being here?""Well I wanted to become the Pirate Queen. But then I lost my crew to one pirate and after that this snot nosed brat beat me down. Figured I'd have better chances following him. Now that I think about it though I'm not sure the Pirate Queen is allowed to follow the orders of someone. So I might rethink that.""I'd rather not say."Jaws speaks up when the attention is turned to him."But I want to use this trip to get stronger for when I return home and let's leave it at that.""Fish-man Island huh? I only heard fairy tales of it. Must've been amazing growing up there.""Yeah... It sure was...""Well I already told Silver but I can share it with you. I want to eat everything in this world including everything deadly and incorporating it to my cooking so I can both cook and eat death itself."The other two burst out in a fit of laughter and start slamming the table. Gu seems a bit distraught at first until he hears their actual response.
"Not bad! Maybe we need a crazy dream like that as well! Would make things more interesting that's for sure!"Hook laughs."Hah! Yes! Just look at our Captain. Tell him Silver what your dream is!""I have no big goal like that. I just want to make a name for myself. A title I don't take from someone like Gold Roger but my very own that other people will want!""Hear that? Little fucker wants to surpass the Pirate King! Or at least become something equal to it! So yeah, we think you're a much better fit for him than us. We have to pick up the pace and become as crazy as you two."Jaws laughs.Marcella wipes her face clean to make herself more presentable and pours out four drinks, one for each of you and slides them over."Okay you fucking rejects! We're here on the precipice of insanity. After this point there is no coming back. Our lives and likely our fates will be sealed. And the only thing we can trust are each other. So how about this? We do a toast together. After that come hell or high water we help each other. Got that? Because the stories you hear of the Grand Line are some shit! Here Silver. I know you're a kid an' all but you can drink this once. You just gotta.""That's right Silver. Drink with us!""You three are surely an odd bunch but I don't object to joining. What do you say Captain? Will you have a toast with us?"You never got the fascination of people with alcohol. It's just some gross, foul smelling liquid. How can they even drink that? But this is something special so... maybe a bit won't hurt?>Drink>Don't drink
Well. That's one hell of a send-off>writing
>>4495843>send off>can't believe we already died.>JustSpookyQuestThings.
Well what's the worst that can happen? You take the cup of sake and put it together with the others saying "Cheers" and send it down. At first you almost choke to death as the burning liquid goes down your throat. Your coughing amuses your crewmates who call you a "lightweight" and other such remarks. Unfortunately you can't make a comeback other than-"Hic"Your eyelids feel like lead so you close them for a moment and when you open them again you see the others scattered around the deck with plenty of bruises and black eyes. Not to mention that the entire ship is now covered in willies crudely scribbled in crayon and both food and drinks have been spilled all over the deck. You must've been attacked by some very mean spirited bandits when you were sleeping but the others wouldn't say a word when they woke up and instead they just got to cleaning the ship without a word. Weird. So while you'd call the party an over-all success the others may not agree. But it doesn't matter for you're only a few days of traveling away from your destination: Reverse Mountain.Your arrival is much less grand than you wished but the sight of the Red Line more than makes up for it. The massive mountain is so great you can't even see its top from the clouds."AAAAAWESOME! Is this it?""No this is just the Red Line, the mountain that cuts the world in half. If we follow the main current it should take us to Reverse Mountain, the only entrance to the Grand Line. But we have to be careful. Leaving the current means we either get pushed against the mountain and dragged under the sea or we end up in the Calm Belt. In both cases we die.""Correction Marcella. You guys would get dragged down and drown. I'd get to enjoy meeting the most horrid monsters of the deep sea. So if we have to die let's do it in the Calm Belt alright? At least that'll be quick."
"Who cares? Let's go let's go!"The others smile as you aim the ship straight at the current taking you up the mountain. This truly is the beginning of the Grand Line and a sign of things to come, a water canal going up the mountain with enough force to carry ships. Astonished you welcome the madness with open arms and ride up the stream to the top of the mountain. Tension and excitement builds as you rise until your heart is beating in your throat. The speed at which you're going is already fast enough but once you tip over it should be even faster downward.As you reach the top you prepare yourself mentally by taking a deep breath."aaaa"Finally the real start of your journey is here."Aaaaaa!"No more games, no more playing, this is the land of dreams where fantasy is reality and sanity is best left discarded. You can finally-"Why am I hearing screams?""AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA YAHOOO!"As you reach the top your ship is shot into the air where the brief moment of euphoria is brutally murdered as you spot another ship flying right next to you. Your eyes pop out of your skull and the same goes for your crew as you collide mid air with the other ship. Luckily the force of Reverse Mountain is great enough that you don't fly off course and you safely land on the other side of the stream going down into the Grand Line. But the canal was DEFINITELY not built with two ships in mind and it's quite a tight fit as the other ship is grinding against you.You need to do something about this and FAST or risk loosing the paintjob or worse, the ship.>We need to slow down and let those maniacs pass!>Who do they think they are? Let's speed up and ditch them!>"HEY ASSHOLES! THAT'S MY SHIP YOU'RE RUINING!!">Other?

Oh this is going to be good!>writing
You know you should do something about this to save the ship... But why should YOU have to do anything when it's these guys who rammed into you?! You're angry! Angry and furious! So you run over to the bow where the two ships are grinding against each other only to see a guy from the other ship doing the same. Placing one leg over the precipice of your ship you step on theirs and start shouting."HEY JACKASS!"You stomp on the railing of his ship to get the point across."That's MY ship you're ruining! So move it!""WHAT? You're the one who came into us! YOU MOVE IT!"He copies you and starts stomping on your ships railing while also rolling up the short sleeve of his shirt.Who the FUCK does he think he is?"Oh yeah? Well even IF that's true at least MY ship doesn't look like it was run over already! And since it's all the same to you, YOU MOVE IT!"Now you roll up your sleeve and headbutt the guy. The two of you start growling and exchanging insults."Shorty!""Dirty hobo!""You smell like elderberries!""Your ship looks like a playground with sails on it!""WHADDIDYA SAY?!""YOU LOOKING FOR A FIGHT?!""YOU LOOKING FOR A FIGHT?!"BONKYou both get clobbered over the head by your own crewmates and get shouted at."Luffy!""Silver!"They point forward where a humongous black mountain is blocking your exit. This is not good. You're going to crash!
There's not much to be done! You have to act now. Both of you kick the others ship with enough force to knock it away. That means instead of each other now you're grinding against the mountain which is arguably worse. But your ship is more armored than theirs so it takes it a bit better. But after that you handle things quite differently. While they generally panic you start giving orders."I'LL TAKE THE WHEEL! GUYS DO SOMETHING WE NEED TO SLOW DOWN!"Jaws start releasing the sails, hoping that they'll slow you down somewhat while Gu goes to the frontal cannons and starts firing them to use the recoil. Using your sails and the mountain you start slowing down whilst considerably damaging the ship. As you get closer and closer you finally realize that the "mountain" you're looking at is not a mountain at all but a whale. It's gigantic! Bigger than anything you've seen before aside the Red Line itself. It's even bigger than some islands! You can NOT collide with that!"MURRAY! GIVE ME A HAND!"As you're reaching the end of the slide Marcella creates a MASSIVE hook she intends to jam into the very end of the mountain. But she needs Murrays strength to hold onto it and use it to make a sharp turn. They succeed while you're aiding them with the wheel and you manage to drift around the humongous whale. Once you're in the clear all four of you wipe the sweat off your brows. That was TOO close.BOOMYou look over your shoulders and freeze in place when you see what happened. Those assholes... shot the whale. With a cannon. Just so they can stop. And they STILL hit it. And now it's opening its mouth."BUOOOOOOOOOOOOOH."And now your eardrums are exploding.
That's the end for today folks. Welcome to the Grand Line.And say hello to the Strawhat PiratesFrom now on you have access to your most powerful technique "Lore Fucking"Have a good night
>>4495940Nice. We gotta be the Gary Oak to Luffy's Ash Ketchum. We are even named Silver tho we are not as edgy.So, if we had chosen to rush to the Grand Line or go into dangerous territory, would we still have clashed with the Going Merry?
KEKBut also damn I just realized we're going to speed up the death of Merry.
>>4495947You would've encountered them in some capacity no matter whatIf you didn't party you would've done the Laboon part alone and likely get vored. The Strawhats would show up when you're done with the whale. If ypu took the most dangerous route you would've used a whirlpool to slingshot yourself into the Calm Belt and arrive at Laboon by the time the SH's were done with the whale>>4495968It's doomed anyway. Luffy and his band of idiots weren't exactly treating it gently nor did they have a shipwright to undo the damage. You can blame Namis jewry for not even hiring someone in the myriad ports they hit to at least do some maintenance
>>4496497>tfw the biggest jew on the ship has the smallest noseBiggest tits though. I guess gold-diggers can out-jew the small hat gang from time to time.
>>4496502That's nothing>mfw the guy with the biggest nose is a weakling, a coward and a habitual liar but instead of being just that he strives to better himself as a man so his boasts and lies become turth
>>4496598Usopp is truly a Chad in spirit.
>>4497427His part in taking down Bullet was my favorite bit in Stampede.
>>4497549Stampede? Is that one of the movies? Unlike with Bleach I never got into them. Are they worth it? I'm kind of interested in Strong World due to the strong ties to canon but that's about itCan I get a quick rundown on which ones are worth the time?
>>4498200Strong World is great it has a real early One piece feel with it's worldbuilding and side character.Z is soft canon and is amazing feels and great fights, it's specific theme song is an old man singing a lullaby so and it hits me like Bink's Sake.Gold and Stampede are soft canon as well they have great animation and fights but other than some exposition on Roger through Bullet are just fight fest spectacles. I actually don't remember anything about the characters in Gold but it was gorgeous and we got to see the Strawhats in lounge wear so it's worth it.The only other one worth watching is Baron Omatsuri and damn is it. My personal favorite One Piece movie even though it is completely non-canon. It has old One Piece vibes, creative action scenes feels and some great horror elements.
The suck suck fruit can turn someone into a vacuum man. There can draw things towards them and pull em into a pocket space from openings made at points across the body. (like wind tunnel from inuyasha) The pocket space can be finite or infinite as the writer decides. Can also create suction against sealed planes, allowing one to cling against surfaces.May have slight overlap with the pulling power of the yami yami no mo, but probably ignorableThe stop stop fruit allows one to become a stop-man. Despite expectations, the stop (probably) is not within the power set offeref by this fruit. Instead, it can instantly remove all kinetic energy of objects making contact with the user. At greater mastery the user can stop molecular motion, functionally reaching absolute 0 in an incredibly thin veil around him.May be too much of a superior noro noro fruit.
>>4498240Curse my phone posting. Meant to explain that "time-stop" is probably not a feature of the stop stop fruit.
>>4498238Good grief those grammar errors I need breakfast.
>>4498238Wow guess I gotta check some of them out after all.Don't know when I'll have the time for it though. I started re-reading stuff just in case last week. I'm currently at the end of SkypieaNot gonna read everything though. It's just that my memory prior to Enies Lobby is a bit spotty. But man is it funny. It really rekindled some old and burried hatred. Like... Enel was a fucking asshole. Not to mention everything that happened to the Shandians. Almost makes you forget what humongous assholes they are 90% of the time
Hey. I know this is coming out of nowhere but I feel like I should shill a bit. If any of you from the good old GHQ days are looking for a good Bleach quest I would like to recommend you Advent Soul Questhttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?searchall=advent+soul+questIt may not be your cup of tea, believe me it wasn't mine either but I think it's shaping up to be pretty good. Check it out if you want to.But fair warning. The QM is a fag and the MC is a literal trap.Don't know if it's magical realm yet but it doesn't look like it as it seems to have legit lore reasons (as well as the writers degeneracy)
>>4499777It seems interesting, I just couldn't get past the whole trap thing. I wish the QM all the best though.
And now because I feel like a piece of shit for shilling a faggot quest I'll give you guys something as well. Just so I can say I didn't come here only for thatI think you'll enjoy it
>>4499777>But fair warning. The QM is a fag and the MC is a literal trap.Yeah i'm good on that one bro
>>4499783Mc might as well not even be a trap with how it's been played so far. If it wasn't for the Qm Astolfoposting I'd completely forget there was a trap there at all.
>>4499802I honestly prefer that. But then again I'm not a trapfag
The sea rages as the last of the survivors are brought up from the wrecks. The all-female marines under Tsurus leadership are quick to report their progress."That's all of them Vice-Admiral!""Any casualties?""We're still getting their names ma'am but by numbers alone it appears to be zero!""Good work. Once you round them up send them to the infirmary. Get them a doctor and some dry clothes. I got some reports to make."Tsuru then goes back to her private quarters slightly peturbed. But if her crew saw even that much from her they'd surely start panicking. After sitting down in her chair she pulls open a drawer and takes out her own personal Den Den Mushi and starts dialing on it.*puru-puru-puru-puru-gacha*"Hello! You called dogmans funky party line! This is dogman speaking how can I help you?""Shut it Garp! I'm not in the mood. Is this line secure?"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G77OKKTTmX4"Whoa! What got into you Tsuru-chan? And yes. As secure as you can get.""Nothing just... the passing of an age.""Eh? What are you talking about all of a sudden? Did old age finally get to you?""Tell me Garp. Do you remember my Washu-Washu ability?""Of course. How could I ever forget?""Well. Do you remember it ever failing? Do you remember when I couldn't cleanse the heart of a man?"There is a suspicious lack of an answer on the other end."I... met a man. A man who along many others I'm sure will represent the newest generation of pirates. And I'm afraid what we feared most has come to pass. We got too old Garp. I don't think we have what it takes anymore. You and Sengoku still got some spirit but I'm not sure how long I can keep going. Especially if it'll happen again.""Tsuru... That's why you prepared. If we can't then we must entrust things to the next generation. That's just how things work. Hell I even got myself a pair of whippersnappers just for such an occasion! They are still just a pair of milquetoasts but I'll make a man out of them in no time don't worry! In the mean time you should ask someone to help you out with our little "problem" if you catch my drift.""I already called Hina. She's on the case. I wanted Smoker boy first but it seems like he caught himself something to obsess over. I wanted to go after him myself but I know Sengoku wouldn't allow it.""Or if not him the higher ups...""Yes.""Well whatever you do Tsuru make sure you take care you hear me? And don't worry. We'll get over this like always!""I hope so Garp. I hope so."*gacha*
There we go.I hope I appeased you guys and don't hold that bit of faggotry against me!Now back to proper questinNext session should happen on Wednesday 15:00 GMT. I would've loved Tuesday but I still have a lot of work to do around the house
>>4499822>I didn't think I had any smile and optimism left>but there they go
>We're getting Black Cage Hina sicced on our assWelp, if there ever was a time to sharpen up on Fishman Karate it is now.
>>4499865You should be glad it's Black CageI had some other captain in mind but then I remembered he was a Grand Line marine while Hina operated in one of the BluesIt was T Bone
>>4499868>SpoilerAt first i was like "Pfft, that dude ain't bad"Then I remembered that he was tough enough that Zoro immediately put on his bandana before the two even laid eyes on each other.I also remembered that Silver's crew currently doesn't have a proper swordsman in it.So yeah, maybe Hina isn't so bad after all.
>>4499883Plus she's hot
>>4499777You aren't the only one reading advent quest spooky
>>4499983I'm aware. But I've made my judgement.If my shilling creates at least 1 additional player it was worth it
>>4499777You would have sold me the quest with the trap MC, if I wasn't sure the quest was made by the same guy that made Sakura Quest. Ugh.
>>4500645wait, nevermind, that's not the Bleach quest I was thinking of.
>>4500651Pretty sure this is the qm's first quest
>>4500645>Sakura Quest.Was that the one where Sakura turned into a fat lesbian?
>>4500718Oh yeah, that was kinda my fault but mostly the QM's but he still blamed the timely death of the quest on me.
>>4500718>>4501006lol what? Care to elaborate? That sounds hilarious
>>4501031Ok so, I posted pic related on the quest, joking about the homoerotic undertunes of the relationship with our rival ala Naruto/Sasuke and next thing you know the rival was kind of making moves on us? Then people started voting to escalate the situation but there werent that many voters so it was tied every time, and every time the qm rolled to choose the vote and it always landed in the gay option, it was a thing of magic. So we had a sloppy makeout-fight and a heart to heart of sorts with our rival who btw is then on Orochimaru's side. Then Konoha Crush happens, Sakura gets an awful level 2 cursed mark which is where the fat in "fat lesbian" comes from and after a bit I manage to get Sakura to confess to the rival now on our side and the vote was kind of close which was rare since the quest usually didn't get that many votes but of course people would come out to vote for that. After that the few people that were left voted to fuse with a piece of Orochi's soul in the cursed mark and I left. Then one thread later the quest is dead, a thread called Sakura Quest Redux comes out with the QM outlawing yurishit in his quest and cursing the existence of degenerates like he didn't write all that shit, and other people telling him to go do something else. Needless to say that the Redux never took off. The quest also had issues besides the shitshow with the yuri but I'm not getting into that.So yeah, that's how I kind of killed a quest.
>>4501047Noice. The perfect storm.
>>4501047What a power move. Please spare this quest from your fateful hands.
>>4501372I can't take all the credit, the QM and the autistic playerbase made sure the quest would eventually fall into oblivion, I just sealed it's fate.I wouldn't worry about this quest, Goop is a bit out of our range but I may try something just to keep you on your toes.
>>4501487Long as we don't have the guy who killed mecha space pirate in here we should all sleep easy. That shit was wild.
>>4501501I wouldn't say it's fair to blame MSPQ's death entirely on one person, since the last ten or so threads has a lot of problems going on, most of which were caused by Roarke being too strong.
>>4501504Yeah the QM seemed stressed and there was a lot of grumbling but that anon at the end was arguing with the entire thread for like eight hours. Guy had PEAK autism powers.
>>4501508>he walked into the thread with this BGMhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4J7K3yacig4
>>4501513>he's just standing there
>>4501047I dropped Sakura Quest around the time Kabuto aged up our body/Neko Sage training. Also that one anon who would sperg out every time someone suggested using Zabuzas sword annoyed me to no end.
>>4501047This makes me glad I ruined my own quest instead of being cucked by a player's autism. Rather be incompetent than made to write shit I don't want to.
The whales bellowing stops but not the ringing of your ears. It's frightening that such a creature even exists, one that could carry an island on its back and one that can make the sea quake with just its voice. It even took a cannonball and it got about as much of a reaction out of it as a bug bite gets out of you. You are confident in your ass-kicking ability but you're afraid your feet just aren't big enough for such a monster."What is that? It's huge!""An island whale-"Hook answers."They typically live in the West Blue but they are very hard to find and people tend to avoid them for obvious reasons. Even if they are typically very gentle. Though... those scars on its head are a bit concerning."Jaws then starts shouting at you."Are you two done sight seeing yet? Marcella! Other guy! Help me check below deck for any leaks! If our little maneuver damaged the ship we need to fix it!"They scurry down the stairs leading to the belly of the ship while you stay upside and watch the whale for any movement. Judging by its eyes it hasn't even seen you yet. Good. The longer it doesn't pay you any attention the better. And you can't forget about those baka-pirates either. You got some bad vibes from some of them and shooting the whale proved your gut right. They seem to have gotten away relatively free from the encounter, only their stupid-dumb looking goat figurehead broke off. Lucky."HEY YOU! STUPID WHALE! YOU BROKE MY SPECIAL SEAT!"What is that dumb monkey going on about? Wait... did his arm stretch just now? Oh. Oh no. Your eyes go pale and you start crying in pants-staining fear. The whales eyes move slightly downward. Yeap. It can definitely see you now. And it's pissed that it got punched in the eye just now.>QUICKLY GET BEHIND THE WHEEL AND BOOK IT>Accept your fate and start praying>Other?
>>4501993>Accept your fate and start praying
>>4501993>QUICKLY GET BEHIND THE WHEEL AND BOOK IT
>>4501993>>Accept your fate and start praying
>>4501993>>QUICKLY GET BEHIND THE WHEEL AND BOOK IT
>>4501993>QUICKLY GET BEHIND THE WHEEL AND BOOK IT>"HOLY SHIT THIS GUY'S AN EVEN BIGGER IDIOT THAN I AM!"
That took a turn didn't it?Not following the Straw Hats to their doom(?) wins>writing
Your reaction to this event is best summarized as feeling every emotion at once and screaming at the sky asking "WHY". But you don't have much time to process this brief venture into enlightenment as you need to do something about this and quick. After running to the wheel and shooting the sails free you pray to god that the sails will behave even without being properly tied down. But luckily as the whale charges it pushes a mighty wall of wind in front of it which you manage to catch and ride to safety after doing a drift. Away from the gaping mouth of the beast you get to watch as it swallows the ship in a single bite like a snack.After a sigh of relief your tears stop coming out and you manage to speak coherent words."HOLY SHIT! THIS GUY IS EVEN DUMBER THAN I AM!""What's all this racket?"Your crew members pop out from below deck looking mighty pissed."WHAT THE HELL SILVER? You drive like a drunk dugong!"But you can't properly explain things to them instead all you can do is mutter."Whale! Big! Mouth! GULP!""W-Wait... where are those idiots?"Marcella wonders."Don't tell me! Holy shit did the whale... EAT THEM?!""It looks docile now. They probably pissed it off again. Idiots."Jaws observes."Well better not mourn the ones inviting death. Let's finish our repairs and get out of here before that whale decides they tasted pretty good...""Hold on-"Gu points at the top of the whale then to the side"It appears it didn't do a very thorough job. That boy with the straw hat is still alive. And there appears to be another ship nearby. Odd.""Ignore them. We have no time for fools like that. Right Silver?"Marcella looks at you.You don't want ANYTHING to do with that Straw hat guy. He might do something stupid again. But that ship looks promising. And it looks deserted. Maybe you can find something on-board. Perhaps even materials for the repairs.>Let's repair the ship and leave this crazy place! (safe)>That ship looks pretty fancy. Let's loot it! (Possible canon break)>I still want to choke that monkey fuck! (Canon break)>Other?I've marked the options with indicators. If you pick anything than safe the story will possibly be altered quite drastically
>>4502046>>That ship looks pretty fancy. Let's loot it! (Possible canon break)Chaos HO!
>>4502046>That ship looks pretty fancy. Let's loot it! (Possible canon break)
>>4502046>>That ship looks pretty fancy. Let's loot it! (Possible canon break)
>>4502046>Let's repair the ship and leave this crazy place! (safe)
Okay but don't say I didn't warn you guys>writing
>>4502046>That ship looks pretty fancy. Let's loot it! (Possible canon break)>I still want to choke that monkey fuck! (Canon break)por qué no los dos?
>>4502083You can choke the monkey later. Now it's lootin' time
"That ship looks promising! And it's empty! Maybe we can find some goodies on board. Or even stuff to repair the ship with!""Huh. Not a bad idea actually."Jaws agrees."Though I'm sensing a pattern here. Will we loot every ship we come across?""Only the ones we can. Now then! HIPPITY HOPPITY YOUR SHIP IS MY PROPERTY!"You sail closer to the caravel docked nearby and board it after confirming nobody's here. Either they died, left it alone or abandoned it. Whatever the case it's yours now. It has a queer little flag with a skull, two crossed rapiers and wings. Not a jolly roger you recognize from the bounty photos though. You ransack the place and find it dreadfully barren. Barely any food on board and no loot worth caring about. Not even any maps or books to get excited about. Only some male and female clothes in the two rooms it has. But there are some wood planks, nails and other stuff. Perfect for reinforcing your ship without sacrificing your own supplies. Oh and there is a Den-Den Mushi which means now you have a pair of thoseBut the looting takes time as you search every nook and cranny of the place in search of anything valuable. And after a while you hear Jaws calling for you as he found something whilst guarding the Dauntless. When you return he's holding a man and a woman by their collars. They appear to be wet and unarmed."P-p-p-pirates? What are we going to do Miss Wednesday?""I don't think there's much that we can do Mister 9...""So it appears it's bye bye, baby for both of us!"You start scratching your head."Is this your ship then?""Y-Yes mister pirate! So erm... if you would be as kind as to give it back to us? There's not much here and even less on us B-BUT as you can see I am of noble blood so if you'd be as kind as to return it I'd handsomely reward you back in my home!""What are you saying?""We lost our log pose didn't we my dear Miss Wednesday! These gentlemen haven't harmed us and they clearly are skilled enough to have one! So please? Would you be as kind as to take us back home?"Hmmmm. Tough choice. Help random strangers you know nothing about... or not?>Sure! But because you asked nicely! (Canon FUCK)>Jaws. Throw them in the sea (Safety)>Other?This is it. Accepting their offer means you take the place of the Straw Hats. You'll follow their trail with some stops missing and a few additional ones but it'll be largely the same. Or if you pick the safe option you get a unique adventure
>>4502097>Jaws. Throw them in the sea (Safety)
>>4502097>>Sure! But because you asked nicely! (Canon FUCK)
>>4502097>Jaws. Throw them in the sea (Safety)I want our own adventure, not to get murdered by Croc. I know people want Robin, but ...eh.
>>4502104>not to get murdered by Crocwe have a fishman with fishman karate...
>>4502097>Jaws. Throw them in the sea (Safety)Taking over their adventure would be lame as fuck.
>>4502111vs doing whatever the fuck with some shitty OCs
>>4502097>Jaws. Throw them in the sea (Safety)I don't want to cuck Luffy out of meeting Ace in AlabasterAnd now I'm remembering Vivi's stupid little pinky hanging chakra stone weapon.
>>4502108Yeah he's got fishman Karate, but it's still a desert climate and he's not Jimbe, unless you think Arlong would have beaten Croc?
>>4502120Wow, it's like we can become stronger or something. Well, whatever. Not like it's really matter. Apparently people want to waste time for "unique" adventure with literally whos.
>>4502120you know, fishman karate, in theory, if you were strong enough, could be applied to any fluid...
>>4502131How do sand and soil behave when you apply vibrations?https://www.earthquakeauthority.com/Prepare-Your-House-Earthquake-Risk/Geologic-Hazards/Liquefaction
>>4502133you can also fluidize sand by blowing air through it, or applying strong vibrations.like the hasshokenhttps://youtu.be/My4RA5I0FKs?t=190
Well I tried to finish my bento before the 30 minute mark but it didn't workAnyway I'm a bit surprised honestly. Not because you didn't cuck the Straw Hats but because it's apparently because of Crocodile? He's scary no doubt about it but I thought it would be the guy after him that makes you guys throw in the towel because he sure as shit did for me>writing
Oh and don't think for a moment you won't get someone at least on Crocodiles level to fightThis ain't that kind of universe
>>4502145There you have it, cowards.
>>4502142I kinda think it's more because people want to have a unique adventure instead of just tracing the strawhat's (would-be) path....Or at least that's what my logic would be had I actually voted instead of lurking like a jackass.
>>4502148I understand why they'd do that. The sense of adventure, the temptation of the unknownLike I said I fully expected this but not because of Croc boy but the other asshole whom I still don't know how you WOULD be able to beat with any chance
>>4502142It's just that one guy.
>>4502142I don't care about Crocoboy, just want the brothers to meet up again before the big shit. Also i figured jacking a Baroque Works ship will get us on their shit list regardless.
>>4502154Implying he cares about anything that happens to someone not an officer agent
>>4502152Oh yeah, we know about Skypiea from the poneglyph don't we? Could that still happen?
>>4502151>people want to have a unique adventure>interacting with Mister Who and Miss Whatever instead of canon charactersthere are original quests on /qst/ though
>>4502152me personally, i chose to throw them overboard because they're weird and suspicious, not out of meta knowledge.i don't particularly care who we do or don't fight, nor do i care how fucked canon gets. i'm just here to have fun and play the character.
>>4502160If i wanted to follow canon I'd just read One Piece.
>>4502161Fair>>4502158As it stands now? No. You also lost your chance at RobinBut that doesn't mean you can't go to A sky island instead of Skypiea
>>4502163>implying everything would happen exactly the same
"Jaws. Throw them overboard.""Eh?""EH?"They seem utterly surprised by a pirate of all things not agreeing to their request. Where do they think they are anyway?"Aye aye sir."With a mighty hurl he throws the two of them back where they came from and dusts his hands off."Good call. I think I saw them with bazookas before they let go of them so they wouldn't sink. But that's surprisingly not like you Silver. Anything wrong?""Their ship sounds like bananas and sand. I don't like it.""Sounds-""Like-""Banana?""Yeap! Got everything we want? How about the clothes?""I'd look like a whore in them."Hook speaks up followed by Jaws and Gu."Too small for me.""Too queer for me."You finish looting anything not nailed down and worth taking before finally sinking the whole ship in tandem with Jaws and the liberal use of Fishman Karate. As you take things back to your own ship and put the loot away however Gu asks the thing that's been bugging him for a while now."So how do we distribute this?""Everyone gets an equal share, unless you don't want to. I get twice as much but half of it is really the ships share. So we don't have to worry about buying supplies and repairs.""Fair. But there's four of us, five with the ship. We divide anything five way and it might be sufficient but any more than that and there will be grumbling. And I assume we'll get more people.""Yeap! That just means we have to go after the bigger loot!""Bigger loot huh? Sounds scary..."You get interrupted by Marcella who steps between you and puts her wrist in your face."Looks like we got a match. Do we just follow this?""Correct."Jaws nods."There are seven routes on the Grand Line. The pose just locked on one of them. If we follow it the thing should lead us through the entire line all the way to Raftel. Though obviously only 1 man ever did that. And it'll be tough.""Does that mean we can only go in a straight line? LAME!""Not necessarily Silver. We can go off the route and it'll lock on to the one we enter. But navigating without a pose is nearly impossible. You'll see why very soon. So Captain? Are we ready to set sail?">Yes! Full speed ahead!>Not yet. I want to choke that stupid straw hat guy first!>Other?
>>4502179>Yes! Full speed ahead!
>>4502179>>Yes! Full speed ahead!
So in the end the meeting of two great forces was nothing more than a passing glance. You likely won't meet them for a while after this>writing
You grin."Crew! FULL SPEED AHEAD! Come hell or high water we ride the Grand Line now!"With those brave words you set out for the true start of your adventure. Famous last words they were. Shortly after your ship set sail you were greeted by the most bizarre and unbearable weather you've ever encountered. Every type of weather imaginable from rain to drought, snow to heat wave, sunny to storm, foggy to blizzard happened all at once. Things could change by the minute drastically. You had to sail under these conditions with powerful random winds turning your ship around and throwing you off course for no less than six hours. It wouldn't have been so bad if you could predict and prepare for the inevitable change but it all happened randomly.Only once those dreadful six hours passed did you get any rest with something akin to regular weather. The sun is now shining but occasionally powerful winds buffet your ship and bring rain, throwing you off course. But now you're vigilant for such things and Hook is starting to get used to always keeping an eye on the log pose. So now you can all rest a little bit. Jaws and Gu are laying on their backs with their tongues sticking out and Hook is sitting in a lounge chair with today's newspaper lying on her face. Meanwhile you're laying on the wheel with the handles poking your ribs. But you're still going straight for the time being."Jaws... What the hell was that?""I have no idea... The weather is bad on the Grand Line but not THIS bad!""I heard the first stretch is the thing gatekeeping most pirates out of this place."Gu speaks up."The seven islands are so close at the start that we feel all seven of their climates instead of just two or three. But hopefully we're through the worst of it."Murray then takes back the reins."It feels like we're heading to a spring island first."
You get up from your oddly comfy resting position and let your ribs rest a while to check out the island but... there's nothing. Apparently you're still several hours worth of traveling away from the actual island itself. So you grip the wheel with one hand and immerse yourself in some reading to pass the time. That bible sister Ann gave you came in quite handy. Sadly it's not quite as enthralling as bounty posters, mainly because of the lack of any pictures but it has some kick-ass stories in it. Like some guy beating another guy with a rock and getting super powers from god for his troubles. What a swell guy.>Knowledge +But as you keep reading your eyes slowly start glazing over and decide that's enough big words for today. Unfortunately that was about fifteen minutes worth of occupation so you need something else to pass the time with. You see that the others somewhat collected themselves and each of them withdrew to their own little area. Jaws is fishing with his massive anchor, Gu (you really need a name for him) went back in the kitchen, good thing too because you're starving and finally Marcella seems to be doing some reading of her own. You could bother one of them or occupy yourself some other way. There seem to be some birds flying above the ship. Birds are cool, right?>Go fishmanning with Jaws>Smell what the chef is cooking>Let's annoy the navigator!>BIRBS!>Other?
>>4502243>>BIRBS!>hello fellow birbsDoes Silver know the difference between bats and birds?

"OY! HOOK! Take over for me a little okay?""Sigh. What now?""Me bored!"Disgruntled she moves over to your place and holds the wheel while you go and do your thing. Running up the main mast for like two steps you jump off from it and turn into a bat to fly up. Though your frantic flapping doesn't produce the most graceful of flight it does suffice and you get up to the crows nest where they are circling around. Tipping your tricorn with your free wing you greet them."Hello there fellow birds! Can you share your ancient wisdom with me?"One of the odd looking birds looks at you. It's quite unlike any bird you've seen before, granted you've seen very few of those. But this one is especially strange because it has a wide face, no beak, and no feathers except on its wings which look like a chickens. Instead it looks like some weird lizard that can fly. He looks very funny! But he doesn't seem too bothered by you and neither do the others that look similar to him, read: not at all bird like.As they keep flying however you get to have a very close look at the way they fly and finally start piecing together the intricacies of it. To put your observation to the test you turn into a bat hybrid and see if you can stay in the air. For the first time you actually don't fall face first into the ground and manage to stay afloat though it's still pretty wonky. At the very least now you're confident in your ability to fly as a regular bat.>Flight getAs you start grinning from ear to ear you also notice something. From your new vantage point you can see the island off in the distance."LAND HO!"Your scream scatters the birds and sends them flying back to the island they came from. Following their lead you arrive at a nice little beach surrounded by a cliffside from both sides. It seems like the perfect place to land so you order the crew to take you in so you can explore. The island appears to be uninhabited as there are no docks nor any buildings visible anywhere. Yet as you get closer you notice a sign with a skull on it, meaning this is a pirate island, meaning it's awesome! But there are some letters written next to it. Learning from your mistake you carefully read the message. The letters are faded and your reading skill is still quite crappy but you do manage."War-ni-ng... Don't dock a-ny-where else!Huh. Wonder what that means."Just as you ask that you feel the island and the sea rumbling around you. Out of nowhere the cliffs begin MOVING! One of them sinks under the waves while the other lifts up into the air. And they both rotate in the same direction.You each scream at the top of your lungs."T-THE ISLAND FLIPPED ON ITS HEAD?!"An exact copy of the same post can be seen on the beach, meaning there's one on both sides. For this is a special island. The island that rotates around its axis once every 24 hours. The island where every animal evolved to be capable of surviving both on land and underwater! Flip-Flop Island!
And that's the end for today for I have work tomorrow.But on Friday (and maybe on Saturday as well) we'll continue with out adventure. 15:00 GMT once againGood night

>>4502321So if Silver can't differentiate things what does he classify a platypus as? A headache?
>>4502354For now the only two things he can diferentiate properly are "Things that you can eat" and "Things you can't". People belong in the latter but he doesn't really know why.And he's aware of concepts like "Bird" and "Fish" and he has seen examples of them but ask him what their definition is and he wouldn't know it.So depending on what part of the platypus he sees first it'd be something else. If he saw its bill it'd be a duck, therefore a bird. If he saw its fur then it'd be a beaver therefore mammal
>>4502366Truly a simple mind is a blessed one.
>>4502318hmmm could i crawl on the rim and wait for it to flip THIS WAY I CAN GO HIGH UP AND FAST THAT SOUNDS FUN
>>4502549If we need a fast getaway (we probably will) we could launch the ship.
The Catapult-Catapult fruit: Allows the user to turn their arms into catapults
"WHOOOOAAAAA! Did you guys see that? The island did a flip! The ISLAND did a FLIP! That's so cool! Let's go and explore it RIGHT NOW!"Jaws promptly grabs you by the collar and stops you from jumping off the ship."Hoooold your horses.""Good catch Murray. Can't have idiot captain kill us immediately."Hook steps up and points in your face."Listen here mister! We need to discuss how to handle things from here on out! The Grand Line is no joke and by the looks of it neither is this island! So we need a plan.""O-kay..."Your enthusiasm disappears and you become one sad boy.Hook then takes over as the de facto leader and starts assessing the situation."So our log pose will have to adjust to the magnetic field of the island. We don't know how long that'll take so we need to make sure we can last however long we need to. Given the odd nature of the island we can assume there are no people living here so we'll have to make do. First we need to find a source of fresh water and then some food. And we can just wait on the ship until we can set sail again.""Objection. That post warning us not to dock anywhere is clearly man made. It's possible that people live here.""Don't kid yourself Gu! How could people live here if the island keeps flipping on its head?"Then Jaws joins in."Not to mention if a flip happens and we're too far away we're in trouble. I need at least one arm to swim and we have three of you. Even if you weren't devil fruit users I couldn't carry all of you back to the ship from the middle of the island before you drowned."As they keep arguing about how to proceed you become INCREDIBLY bored. Time to put an end to this.>We start searching for any locals that might live here>Let's go and find food and water first>Quietly slip out of your suit and just walk around the island as you please

"Okay I decided! We'll go and look for the guys who put up the sign! But we should leave someone behind to guard the ship. I will go of course! Anyone else?""I would like to go. Sea creatures produce a variety of toxins. I'd like to examine what kind of venoms would such an environment create... for cooking of course.""Toxin? Venom? Those sound like cool names. Anyway sure! Jaws you'll come as well! We need someone to pull us out if we drown! You should start with him when that happens. I got good suck! And Hook you get to guard the ship. If anything happens just scream like a girl.""I AM A GIRL!"Disregarding her you set out for the island. Though you hate getting your shoes wet it's offset by the sense of ADVENTURE awaiting you on the island.And the place is truly bizarre. Palm trees live together with corals and other sea based life whilst the animals share traits between fish and a variety of other animals. Birds have a smooth skin and a thin veil on their wings instead of feathers. Mammals all have webbed feet and are often scaley. And lizards have both gills and wings, these were the "birds" you've seen up in the sky. And of course everything is incredibly vibrant in color. Blue, red, pink, orange and green are all found on almost everything. Quite a change from the mostly browns and greens you're used to."This place is so strange. Usually colors like these are found only on poisonous animals as a warning. But I doubt everything here would be toxic...""Yeah don't touch anything. I'm more at home in the water but this is throwing even me off."Gu and Jaws are discussing the island and its strange inhabitants while you're busy carelessly rummaging around in the thick undergrowth looking for more weird animals. When you spot one you smile with glee and pop out from behind the corals to wave at the others."GUYS! LOOK WHAT I FOUND! It's a shark! That's a wolf! A shorf!"
The creature does indeed look like a shark with four legs except it's far larger than either of those things. The huge beast bursts out from behind you, scaring your crewmates enough to put them on guard."Can I keep it?"But as it turns out they worried for no reason as it falls to the ground lifeless in a few seconds. When looking at it you see a hole in its head and a wooden shaft sticking out of it. Somebody shot this thing and now you're mad! Looking up you see a figure wearing clothing made out of sea shells and a weird mask covering their face. Looks like an octopus. They have a large bow in their hands.They jump down to your level and you are ready to kick their ass."YOU! YOU STOLE MY SHORF I-"But they completely ignore you and walk up to Jaws so they could kneel down before him."Master Fish-man. We've been waiting for you my lord. I am Millip. I will lead you to our village.""Oh erm, well! That's mighty kind of you! Hahaha! But really I'm not such a-""Please great lord. Don't be so modest. Once your servant calms down I'll escort you back home."Looks like Jaws is a bit embarrassed by this treatment. But you don't appreciate being ignored, nor someone pissing you off.>But it's not nice to attack someone so you'll hold back and follow him>HEY! WHO'RE YOU CALLING A SERVANT? (Kick his ass)>Other?
>>4504579>But it's not nice to attack someone so you'll hold back and follow him
>>4504579>But it's not nice to attack someone so you'll hold back and follow himBut if we get a reason to fight, we kick his ass first.
>>4504579>But it's not nice to attack someone so you'll hold back and follow him.Now I really want a shorf.
>>4504579>>HEY! WHO'RE YOU CALLING A SERVANT? (Kick his ass)Being called a servant strike a nerve considering his past
>>4504579>But it's not nice to attack someone so you'll hold back and follow him>Whisper to him "I'll kick your ass later, alright?"
Passive aggressive Silver instead of fully aggressive Silver. Got it>writing
Though your fists are clenched in anger you swallow that bitter pill and still your hands. He's not a threat to you but the second he becomes one you'll feed him a knuckle sandwich with 4 different kinds of cheeses and 6 different kinds of meat. As he leads you to his village you even go up to Jaws and quietly tell him that you'll kick his ass later. But he protests that these people are friendly and they must be very nice people. Whatever.Turns out their home is relatively close. They all live within caves found under the mountain at the center of the island. The guy says that there are two entrances, one for each side of the island and the side which is facing the sun changes every 24 hours. He doesn't tell you WHY it flips though but whatever. Strangely the mouth of the cave does not actually reveal much, instead you have to go down a slope until you find some sort of a bubble which you can pass through without much effort. There is a second bubble immediately after it which is more solid and requires a door to pass through. Apparently the smaller orb slides around inside the big one so even if the island flips on its head the settlement remains in the same position. But according to him the daily change is still a bit annoying but not something you can't get used to. When you finally step in the town you see massive corals with holes carved into them, which apparently serve as buildings for these people."Great lord of the sea. Please wait here while I announce your presence to the town. It's not common that we can house such great guests. If it's okay we shall hold a feast in your honor. You'll be able to wait there while we prepare our tribute."Jaws can't help himself but smile and wave Millip off saying he doesn't need such a thing. He's loving his current situation. Meanwhile Gu leans over to you and whispers in your ear."You have any idea what's going on?""Nope siree.""Shouldn't we say something?""Probably?""Well will you?""I don't know.">Ask Millip about the town>Ask jaws about what is going on>Don't bother.

Here is an island idea for you though it's rather basic for the Grand Line. An island with a massive underground black market, maybe even the biggest one for that route with among other things a permanently on going Davy Back fight and shipwrights who specialize in pirate ships

Considering some of the islands in Paradise are still tame beyond stagnant seasons, how about a spring island that is stuck in a medieval english kingdoms culture. Knights, jesters, lords and dukes and such. Might be a nice place to pick up a swordsman.
>>4504669Islands in the grand line are not held back by stupid things like "logic" or "time period"One island can have cyborgs while another is stuck in the stone age or even earlierNo such constraints exist so a medieval kingdom is guaranteed to existElisabelo might come from one
"Jaws..."You look at your first mate who's blushing so hard his head is turning orange."Do you have any idea what he's talking about?""None what so ever! But this is great isn't it? I thought we'd only ever visit horrid monster islands. Looks like fortune favors the bold and we were blessed with such a fantastic first destination!"You're not surprised by this response. That's about what you expected. However Millip definitely was and now he's giving you shifty eyes. Looks like something's not right in this place as you suspected. Well time to dig a little deeper."And you. Octopus-dude-""Millip.""I like this place. It looks cool! And it takes balls to live on an island that flip flops around. Can you tell me more about it? Like how you came here?""You don't know? Hmmmmm."It looks like you said something you shouldn't have. Now he probably thinks you're suspicious."Well I'd tell you but you wouldn't believe.""No. There's nothing I don't believe."Jaws momentarily stops in his childish glee and nods."That's true.""In that case then a brief history wouldn't hurt I suppose. Our tribe originates from a different island here on the Grand Line. We left our brothers and sisters because a great plague ravaged our island. We sailed for many moons until we found Crabbo and he invited us to live here on him. We settled down with his help and named it Flip-Flop Island.""Crabbo?"He taps the ground with his bow."All is Crabbo. By his grace we live here. And we live in harmony with the land itself."He then turns to Jaws."But I'm surprised master Fish-man. Did you not inform your servant about the nature of your visit? Well it doesn't matter for the tribe. As long as you help us heal Crabbo of his blight. Now if you'll excuse me-"He then takes his leave and exposes you to the rest of the town. The folks here seem to be really interested in you as they give you passing glances as they pass by and several of them are peeking at you from nearby windows. A bit of time later a messenger arrives stating that the village is very grateful for your presence and the banquette is being prepared. He asks you kindly to follow him where the feast will take place.>Follow him>Tell the others you need to take a leak (snoop around)>Tell the messenger you're not interested and leave>Other?

"Go ahead guys. I gotta pee real bad.""Oh in that case the bathrooms are-""No thanks."You cut off the guide that was sent for you."I pee where I want!"You leave them without another world and check the place out for yourself. Maybe that way you can stop being nervous. People misunderstanding a bunch of stuff is okay. Not hearing the island itself speak is another. You hear the mountain but not the island. And these people. All of them are wearing clothing made out of sea shells or other sea stuff but they also cover their upper body with large capes and other covering clothing. Weird. You should investigate a bit... But first! Food! It's silly to buy food when there is a feast going on but THIS is the food you want NOW!"Hey old lady! What's that? Fish?""Oh you're not from here? It's cat-fish. A large predatory cat that looks like a fish. Try some!"You get a cube of seared meat and when you bite down on it meaty juices gush in your mouth. It's so yummy that you immediately buy all the meat she's cooking and start eating it all."Good ain't it sonny? Most people eat cat-fish for its liver. I'm glad all that good fresh meat doesn't go to waste!""Fresh? You mean you hunted it?""Oh no. Not me. My daughter is- Oh! Hagetaka you're back!""Hi ma. I caught a merboar this time. Make sure you- Oh. Looks like we have a customer? Welcome."You try to respond to her but your greetings and your amazement at her huge catch get lost between the meat chunks in your mouth."Swallow before you talk!"She swats you on the back and almost makes you choke to death.After you drink a bit of water you sit down and talk with the old lady and her daughter for a bit. Apparently she's one of the best hunters in the village but she mostly just hunts for her mom to sell stuff. She tells you about how they always hunt when the flip happens as that's when animals are most vulnerable."But that's enough about me. What are you doing here? Are you here alone?"You tell her you're a pirate and that their people are throwing a feast for you right now. Her mother almost falls on her back but she doesn't seem too shocked. Surprised to be sure but she's not scared."Oh wow. So you're the guys here to help Crabbo huh? I... I'm sorry I didn't recognize. Certainly didn't expect a human to show up.""Why's that?""Well aren't the Sun Pirates all fish-men? But I guess a Shichibukais crew could have anything in it."What did she just say? Oh.>So anyway about that Crabbo. What is it?>Thanks for the food I gotta go bye!>Other?

>>4504824That's because we, and by extension Silver are no idiots. There's not enough water on the Sun to have pirates so they're fake.
>>4504824I mean, I did raise an eyebrow, but I wanna see more first before I visibly sweat and freak out. Like what their connection to Crabbo really is.>>4504827Kek
Can someone give me a brief rundown of the Sun Pirates? All I know is that they're made up of Fish-Men which sounds pretty cool.
>>4504863Normally I'd be happy to but... there's a bit much there
>>4504863is the crew of jimbei
You ask the old lady for more food just as you smell the merboar being done (enough) and start chewing on the very rare meat whilst giggling to yourself. Sun Pirates! What do they think you are an idiot? There isn't enough water on the sun for pirates there! Obviously those don't exist. But you're still curious about something so you stop chewing just long enough for them to understand you."And what's this about Crabbo then? I keep hearing it but I don't know what that is.""How don't you-""Come on Hagetake. Don't be so angry. Be patient with the slow boy.""Sigh. Fine. Okay so you know our island? Flip-Flop Island? Crabbo invited us to live here."You nod."Crabbo is a giant basking crab that's so old an island grew on his back. He told us we can live on him as long as we behave and don't destroy the island and its animals.""Wait we're on a big crab? I always wanted those! I once found a coconut crab but it didn't taste like coconut... But crabs are still cool though!""Ugh. Ma can I leave? I think I have urgent hunting business anywhere else."But before she could leave you grab her by the skirt and ask her to tell you more about big crabs. Her mother laughs and tells her that it looks like she just made a friend. She sits back down and starts really showing her frustration."Anyway a basking crab is a crab that likes to bask. That's about it. But Crabbo is so big that the sun can't warm his entire body at once so he has to flip around every day. But that means that barnacles started growing all over his body and now he can barely move from them. That's why we asked you guys to help him. Do you at least realize how much we are paying you? To think you're not taking this seriously at all... It should make me feel comfortable but for some reason I'm just worried.">That's because we're not the Stupid Pirates. Seriously who'd sail the sun? Ridiculous>Hmmm. Well thanks for the meal! But now I gotta find my friends>You shouldn't worry. We're strong. Want me to show you?>Other?
>>4504863The TL;DR is that their leader, this absolute gigachad, decided to "fuck it" and raid the holiest and most sacred place Mariejoa, where the celestial dragons were. He freed a shit ton of slaves and stuff, then formed a pirate crew of mostly fishmen. Most notably he burnt the sun pirate logo over the slave burn marks and for non-slaves too so that none could be separated from each other
>>4504874>>That's because we're not the Stupid Pirates. Seriously who'd sail the sun? Ridiculous
>>4504874>Ah, i see! So i just gotta knock the barnacles off ol' crabbo, right? No problem!"
>>4504874>>You shouldn't worry. We're strong. Want me to show you?
>>4504874>That's because we're not the Stupid Pirates. Seriously who'd sail the sun? Ridiculous
>>4504874>>You shouldn't worry. We're strong. Want me to show you?Flex your bat-fishman-hasshoken skills
>>4504874>That's because we're not the Stupid Pirates. Seriously who'd sail the sun? Ridiculous>But I wanna help Crabbo, he sounds chill. We just have to get rid of the barn-things, right?
Ah barnacles. Briney bastards bringing beleaguered basking buddy beneath. They must be destroyed.>>4504874>>That's because we're not the Stupid Pirates. Seriously who'd sail the sun? Ridiculous>I'd like to help anyway though. Getting drowned by barnacles sounds terrible.
>>4504874>You shouldn't worry. We're strong. Want me to show you?
So in a weird way this is all three geared towards trying to help Crabbo. Is that correct?Well in that case let use commence operation Clean Crab>writing
>>4504923Wait. Not all three just two. Jesus Christ. I am dumb but not "can't count" dumb
"That's because we're not the Dumb Name Pirates. Seriously. Who'd sail the sun? Ridiculous!"The two ladies pause for a few moments before they become distraught. But you quickly start wagging your finger at them with a grin on your face."Don't poop your pants just yet! We're strong. And Crabbo sounds like a cool guy! I'll help him!""Y-You?""Yeap! But can you take me there? I don't know how these barkleys look like. Oh and we should get my friend she's still on the ship."Hagetaka begrudgingly agrees to guide you through the land if only to satiate her curiosity about you. First you grab Hook and tell her that there is an entire city in the mountain. She's not exactly thrilled by your guide, asking who the "bimbo" is whatever that means. And though it hurts to say this but you abandon the ship as you go and seek out the barnacles that are hurting the big crab. You also tell her that it'll probably take more than a day since you can't go in the water. She says that's fine as your pose won't log the next destination for about four days.Finally she takes you to a massive... thing that you could've sworn was just a big hill with all the crap growing out of it."This is it. There are hundreds of them and we must cleanse them all.""Well why don't you guys just keep the crab in good condition? It'd be a lot easier to pick the small ones off every now and then!"Hook complains."Do your eyes not work? Do you not see how big our home is? Or how half of it sinks in the water for a day?"You pull the two of them apart and make your way to the thing."Okay girls cut it out. Now we work. We have fun later."You examine the massive rocky thing and think about how to best handle it.>You could probably peel them off with your sword >Fish-man karate was the original plan of the natives. That should work>Hasshoken would make short work of them>Your devil fruit should be enough>Other?This isn't a choice about which would be better but rather which one you want to train

>>4504962>Fish-man karate was the original plan of the natives. That should work
>>4504989i am guessing that is going to appear the option to fuse martial styles once we have enough mastery over fishman and hasshoken
>>4504996Supporting. Try them separate and see if we can combine. If not, just alternate between the styles
Well Hasshoken took the lead and not surprising considering its most known usage is breaking things>writingNow give me 3d10, best of 3No dc this time. The higher you roll the more experience you gain

>>4505014I'm not a fan of biting the fishmen's shtick, is all. >>4505024Brilliant. We'll become a force to be reckoned with yet.
You look at the big thing and think that MAYBE you'll need to hit this a fair bit harder than usual. Well no matter. You know several ways to do that. Hasshoken would be one of them and it definitely could deal a considerable amount of damage. But what if it's not enough? There's an easy way to eliminate that risk. And now that you planned everything out so well you start smiling while cracking your knuckles."Okay. Time to go to work! Stay back girls! I'm about to learn how to take good care of crabs in case I ever got some.""Crabs are not a thing you want Silver.""Shut up crabs are awesome!"Hagetaka is confused by this exchange."I thought we went to get her to help with the removal.""Nah. I felt bad for leaving her on the ship. She's just here to watch."https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8A-q3TM8kPkYou walk up to the barnacle smiling from ear to ear as your body changes and grows. Your hands turn into massive wings as you turn into a bat hybrid. The huntress that's with you almost falls over as she backs away from your monstrous form. Looks like even on the Grand Line some people can be scared by Devil Fruits. But that doesn't matter now. Only that big stupid rock in front of you or whatever it is. Raising your wing you look at it carefully. Something's been bothering you a bit. When you transform your arms turn into wings, making you unable to use tools with them. But that doesn't change the fact that they are hands, the fingers are still in there after all.Clenching one of your massive wings into a fist you grin and begin creating vibrations in your knuckles. Your big ears pick up the air as it starts ringing from your fist, you hear the most minute changes and hear which ones make the vibrations stronger. You finally start getting it!"Eight Impact Fist! Kōmoriken!"The barnacle doesn't suffer damage, it doesn't get a dent, it doesn't move. It explodes into tiny bite sized chunks alongside everything growing from it. Complete success. Total annihilation. You feel satisfied."Next!"
It takes a while for the girls to unsoil their panties but once it happens you can finally go over the island and destroy the invasive barnacles one by one. But as you keep going something starts bugging you. A strange wind begins to blow, one that doesn't seem to bother anyone else."uuuuuuuuuu-"And it keeps getting louder as you keep going."UuuuUUUUuuuUUUUu-"Until you can clearly hear it. A deep moan that gets louder as you cleanse more of the island crab."Freedom... to be able to move once again... and that massage. Whoever's doing it. Thank you."That's strange. You've never heard the voice of an animal before but you're pretty sure that was Crabbo. Well it's not like he could hear you from all the way over there so you keep going around and breaking the barnacles on his back. Sadly as the sun is setting you're not nearly finished with this side. Hagetaka urges you to return to the village with her because she has to share what she just saw with the village. And you're feeling understandably hungry again so you'd welcome the break. However as you turn around to head back you spot something down by the shore right next to your ship."Hey Silver. You don't think Murray made the villagers build another ship. Do you?"Looking down at the beach you see a second ship docked right next to yours. Well... those must be the guys whose job and subsequent payment just took. Awkward.
And that's where I'll end things for nowI don't know whether or not I'll continue tomorrow. Check the thread around the usual time and if you see no activity from me then there won't be any later eitherHave a good night
>>4505100Imagine sailing here all the way from the sun and not getting paid, they are going to be pissed.Thanks for the run Spooky
>>4505100Oh boy.>>4505105Thanks for the run.
>>4505105>>4505105>Check the thread around the usual time and if you see no activity from me then there won't be any later eitherDoes that mean there won't be any later *tomorrow*, or at all? I thought things were just getting good.
>>4504827I know I'm late to this but fucking god dammit
>>4505105can't believe quest ded
>>4505111>tfw you've been traveling at the speed of light to get to your destination and some weedy kid beats you there without even intending to
>>4505270>And does your job on top of it>Extremely well at that>He doesn't even really know why he's here
Wait a fucking minute>allies of the Sun Pirates>all wear capes or other large torso covering clothesShit dude are we on an escaped slave island?
>>4505384>silver is also an escaped slaveintredasting
>>4505387Forgot to mention but Millip did say a plague had ravaged a different island they were on. Judging by the image shown when we first met him, safe to assume that the island he is referring to is Jaya. Being these flipflop islanders are Shandorians. Or rather close relatives at this point.
>>4505395I was going to say that's a perfect alibi for a civilization to spring up where there was nothing not to long ago but then I remembered he thought we were in on it when he told us. Maybe the whole slave thing was left out as a "well you know that part let's not talk about it" kind of thing?
>>4505100huh how do they sail the sun ? that boat is wood and i know the sun is a fire disc that flies over the sky always angled downwards that either goes around the world disc or goes in and out of the sea by magic but if they dont sail on the sun and just hook onto it and let it carry them over the skies where are the hooks and wings for that?
>>4505123Yes. If I don't post at 15:00 gmt that means I stuck my peepee in a woodchipper to see how it feels and it didn't work out>>4505111>>4505270>>4505281My fucking sides. But I'm already dreading the introduction of future crews>Firetank pirates: Silver lights their clothes on fire and starts hammering iron plates into them to help the fuckers live up to their names>Kid pirates: He thinks they are either very tall children, or many children in big trenchcoats and tosses lollipops at them>Heart pirates: Silver tries to rip his own heart out because the only pirate allowed to sail his hearts is himself>Silver is pissed because the Straw hat pirates don't all wear straw hats>Pretty much the only 2 crews he's okay with are the Beast Pirates and the Big Mom pirates respectively, because one of them is just a bunch of beasts and the other has a big mom
>>4505813You forgot Whitebeard>"What do you MEAN he doesn't have a beard?! IT'S IN HIS NAME!"
>>4505834Pretty sure it's backwards. Silver would be the only one to look at him and nod "Yeap. He has a white beard. It checks out."While everyone else is just too scared to tell the old man his "beard" is just a moustache
>>4505813>Red Hair pirates: same thing as the Straw Hats, only one of them has red hair
Quick update of the situationI won't run today.I woke up with a headache, took some painkillers in the morning and now it's back.Don't think it'll do me nogging much good to stare at the monitor and type a whole bunch. Sorry. Have a nice day
>>4505929take care, spooks!looking forward to more shenanigans when you're feeling better!
>>4505929Yeah, take care man. Wish you a quick recovery
>>4505937>>4506197Oh it's nothing serious. I'm fit as a fiddle... Well not really but I am healthyIt's just that there has been some rather fucked weather conditions lately. One day we have thick fog with 10 °C outside but the next it's sunny and jumps up to 25 degrees.Lately I've become more sensitive to the weather I think, a sign of me becoming a true boomer
An archipelago of 24 islands in a perfect circle. There is only one island every hour that is not totally flooded, and the whole flooding process moves clockwise
>>4507327Neat idea, but we are currently dealing with an island that periodically submerged itself so another island can surface. You're idea seems like it would hit a lot of the same beats, I fear
Welcome everyone. My headache comes and goes like an indecisive coomer. Sadly I think I won't get any better unless the weather decides what the fuck it wants to be. So I think I'll just tough it out and get used to the pain.In less depressing news: Next time I'll run on Tuesday at 15:00 GMT even if my head splits in two. In the mean time I might comb through the pastebins a bit>>4507327Not bad but like >>4507352 said it feels a bit samey. However it can be used with a bit of fine tuning. Over all it's a neat idea
>>4507449I made an oopsie it seems. Next session is Monday at 15:00, not Tuesday
Two islands that are separated by a permanent whirlpool. Whenever someone from one island dies, two people are born on the other, emerging from the whirlpool. The two islands bitterly hate each other, and are in a constant low-grade war. Due the islands' effects, their war has degraded into launching suicidal attacks against each other in lieu of any sort of "proper" combat.
Island ideaAn active volcano rising out of the sea but instead of smoke and magma coming from the top they are vented out the sides, there is only one docking port that is constantly being extended do to the increasing landmass.The people live in a large metal factory that sits in the mouth of the volcano where they harvest magma to make different types of obsidian which they use for tools, weapons and armour which all wear. Their armour is fashioned in a way that they can roll themselves up into a ball and ram enemies.
>>4508062I've been wanting to make a blacksmith island. Might use this>>4507999This on the other hand might be the first idea I don't really like. Outright mystical stuff like that does happen but they are rare, you could probably count all of them on one hand. And even then they are not so "in your face" outside Devil Fruits. Usually they can be explained by pseudo science or internal logicHere are all the "supernatural" things I could think of>Devil Fruits>Haki (?)>The monsters of the Florian Triangle (Might be just big animals)>Curses> Klabautermann Not going to discard the idea just yet but might not use it
I have many ideas for islands but I can’t really decide on one. So I’ll just share the idea I like the most.Heres my idea for an island.It’s an island based off of the old tales/myths about Oni and Ogres (such as Ibaraki Doji, Shuten Doji, Hoshiguma Doji, etc). It’s name would probably be something along the lines of Doji Island. It be a very rough and rocky island, however they would produce some potent and powerful alcohol.The residents of this island would of course be creatures like Oni’s and Ogres. They would be rather friendly, and would most certainly enjoy partying and drinking booze.I admit I haven’t read or seen Wano yet, so the idea might be redundant y’know.
You stare at the strange new ship that showed up in port. Although it's far away you are sure of one thing. It's much bigger than your own which fills you with envy and jealousy that your cheeks puff up so much that you're on the verge of tears."Mine is still better..." Hook squints to look at their main mast."Looks almost like a sun. Holy shit... that's actually the crew of one of the Shichibukai." "What's wrong? Chicken?" "Chicken? I'm not a coward!" "Sure you aren't-" "But if you see one of the seven warlords of the sea you should run in the opposite direction! That's common sense!" Adjusting your hat you start laughing."Kekekek! Silly Hook! Are you forgetting who we are? We're pirates! We were going to bump into them sooner or later!" But even though you don't recognize the true scope of the situation Marcella does. Yes you were going to bump into them, but she probably thought you wouldn't pick a fight with them. And she considers herself smart huh? Now then... how to handle this. >Go down there and say hi>Go back to the town and get the rest of the crew>Other?
