It is a time of peace. With Lord Freeza’s explosive declaration, naming himself Emperor of the Universe after single-handedly obliterating the Covenant stronghold High Charity, peace has come to the universe. Not wanting to stand against him and his unstoppable Super Saiyans, within days of his declaration the universe bent the knee. And while there are always outliers, those stubborn or foolish enough to try and resist, the overwhelming majority of the universe is bending the knee. And he wouldn’t have achieved all this, defeated the strongest military in the universe and survived the Prophet’s ultimate weapon without your help.Welcome to Saiyan Conqueror Quest, the story of an alternate timeline in the greater Dragonball EU. Currently it is Age 749 and you the players control Karn: once an ordinary Saiyan warrior with a meager powerlevel of 2,830 who has risen to become a mighty Super Saiyan, and so much more. Throughout your many adventures, the “Dragon of New Salda” has grown into the symbol of Saiyan might and power recognized actoss the universe. Now as a PTO general with a powerlevel of over 34 million, and close friend and confidant of Lord Freeza himself, Karn has become his people’s greatest champion.Character sheets and other info:https://pastebin.com/u/GrandDragonQMArchive:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?searchall=Saiyan+Conqueror+QuestQuest rules are as follows:>30 minute voting windows from post time>Pick ONE option when voting(unless otherwise noted)>Dice rolls are all best of first three, only correctly rolled dice pools will count>Crits are 100 on a d100(a 99 or paired rolls may net you an extra bonus)>Crit fails -only- occur if no roll passes the DC, or if two different 1s are rolled which will OVERRIDE even a critical success, resulting in a catastrophic crit failure>Write-ins are both allowed and encouraged, but options too out of character will be shut down as our character is now well-established>I can change any of the above rules at any time for any or no reason>Have funSCQ will usually start every Saturday at noon Eastern Standard Time, and run throughout the weekend.

>>4661486Last time on Saiyan Conqueror Quest:One week after High Charity’s destruction, Karn had spoken with some of his allies and took his younger kids fishing before Ubo returned and they battled. With his powers greatly enhanced by the light of a blue star he had easily surpassed Karn, reaching far closer to Golden Freeza’s power. After the battle it was lunchtime, Karn going into the city with his family and entering a fancier tourist-y restaurant. Once inside and seated, Karn was approached by a familiar trio. Now as we rejoin Karn, Komand’r and Turles have joined your family for lunch.“My little sister called me back this morning, and informed me that her attack has been successful so far. Since the war ended, she’s conquered three seperate Remnant holdouts.” Komand’r says casually, picking up the haunch of some sort of flame-cooked beast and taking a large bite before continuing. “And they’re moving onto the next one tomorrow.”“Being able to breathe in space is a huge advantage, not going to lie.” you answer, then tear the meat off of a side of some beast’s ribs. “How long are you all planning to stay for?”“At least until my dear sister returns, with the Guard she took along.” Komand’r replies. “Until then I thought it would be nice if we stuck around, and let little Ticho spend a bit more time with this side of the family.”As she says this the four of you adults all look over, seeing her and Caulifla whispering about something, heads down together. You glance to the Tamaranean princess, and for the first time you can remember see a look of genuine compassion as she sees her daughter smiling and giggling together with Cauli. You look away before she notices, the Tamaranean royalty shifting the focus of the conversation.“But now that the war’s over, what about you?” she asks you suddenly. “What are you planning on doing next?”“Well, I hadn’t been spending as much time with the kids as I’d wanted.” you answer her. “And it’s past time I did so.”“So you’re not leaving anymore?” Kayle, your second-youngest daughter and youngest twin asks. “You’re gonna be home?”“That’s right, I’m gonna be right here at home for the foreseeable future.” you say, Kayle leaping atop her seat and cheering excitedly. You notice several glances from a few of the more poshly-dressed creatures here, who all turn away rather quickly when they recognize you. “Spending time with my family, and furthering my training.”“As strong as you are, it still isn’t enough?” she asks, half-jokingly. “What are you even training for?”Well, what do you say?>I’m aiming to be the best me I can be>I promised Freeza that I’d catch up to his power>I won’t stop even after I’m the strongest in the universe>As long as my enemies live, I won’t quit getting stronger>Other(write in)
>>4661489>As long as my enemies live, I won’t quit getting strongerThis rings true to the Karn I know. It's always about being ready for whoever's stupid enough to come for our head.Complacency is the enemy and all that.
>>4661489I want to say Karn gets stronger to protect those he cares for, just like she plans on doing now that she has a daughter, and as long as someone is stronger than you, it will never be enough.But I just woke up and words are hard
Leaving vote open another ten minutes, since it seems most everyone’s still asleep
>>4661489>As long as my enemies live, I won’t quit getting strongerJust happens to be that getting stronger tends to make you enemies.
>>4661536I think this confirms how many anons live on the devil's coast, myself included.
>>4661539>Just happens to be that getting stronger tends to make you enemies.I think this is one of those times where Bane, or any Sith Lord really, can really empathize with us.Everybody wants to take a shot at the king.
>>4661489>I’m aiming to be the best me I can beI dislike the connotations of the enemy one desu>>4661536I just forgot today was quest day
>>4661547>I dislike the connotations of the enemy one desuWhat don't you like about it?
>>4661522>>4661532>>4661539>>4661547As long as my enemies live, I won’t quit getting stronger plus write in wins it. Writing.
>>4661489>>As long as my enemies live, I won’t quit getting strongerbasically as long as the time kai or mechakabura can walk in and straight up delete our entire timeline no strength is enough until it's enough to overcome shit like that, hell even frieza has to feel the pressure from the time loli staring down on him.
>>4661489>Kayle leaping atop her seat and cheering excitedly. You notice several glances from a few of the more poshly-dressed creatures here, who all turn away rather quickly when they recognize you. That's right fancy lunchmeat, planet eraser in the building.
>>4661489“I have to get stronger. As long as my enemies live, I have to keep pushing myself.” you tell her. “The universe may be ‘united’ now, but that doesn’t mean everyone’s suddenly gonna just get along. There’s still whatever Sangheili survived High Charity’s explosion who’ll no doubt want revenge, as well as whoever else has survived the different battles. Like those demons who followed Trigon, and had apparently been trying their luck again while I was gone. Babidi’s still out there somewhere too, with his monster even King Cold is afraid of.”“Sounds to me like you never plan on taking it easy.” she replies, eyeing you.“The universe isn’t a fair place. The strong make the rules, and the weak either fall in line or die.” you tell her. “I get stronger so I can protect those I care for, no matter who or what tries something. And as long as someone is still stronger than me, my training will never be enough.”“Power does grant a level of autonomy unavailable to the weak.” she says, sounding more thoughtful as she considers your words with her own background. “The less one can actually force you to do something, the less power they will have over you.”She then glances to Turles, golden hair still spiked, as something seems to dawn on her. She then smirks at him, a hint of cruelty but also near-feralexcitement in that gaze. You can almost feel him tense up from there, but after an instant the moment passes. She looks a little more smug than before, but says nothing about it. Everything’s quiet for a moment, before Caulifla speaks up.“Hey Momma! Dad! Can Ticho and I go?” she asks you both suddenly. “I wanna go show her somethin’!”“Are you finished eating?” Meloka asks her, your daughter nodding rapidly several times.“Uh huh! Pleeeaaaaase?” she asks, clasping her hands together. You and Meloka share a glance, then look back to her.“I don’t see why not.” you say, looking over to Komand’r and Turles. Getting the hint Caulifla looks to them as well, and asks the same.“Please?” Caulifla asks, and for a second you think she’s going to say no. But as the Tamaranean princess looks to her daughter her expression softens.“I guess you can go.” Komand’r says, then holds up a single finger. “Stay with her, and don’t get seperated. Okay?”“Thank you mother!” she says, rushing out of her chair and around the table to hug her mom, then dad too before the two of them rush out of the restaurant.“So, where are you off to next?” you ask.“Back to your king. I have to finish renegotiating the alliance between our peoples with him.” she says, catching you off guard. “After all, our alliance was ‘until the Covenant are destroyed’, remember? And I believe this qualifies as destroyed.”cont
>>4661629“Well, I can’t argue that point.” Meloka says. “Good luck with that.”“What about yourselves?” Turles asks you. “Where are you headed off to?”Well? Now that lunch is over, what now?>You haven’t seen your eldest daughter all day, and you’re curious what she’s been up to>There was that four-armed alien outside, you wonder what he wants if he’s still there>Track down your students in person, and let them know that training resumes tomorrow>Let the kids play, you’re going to be talking with your youngest daughter to hopefully get to the bottom of her condition>Check in on Leyas and Sarada, you can feel both their transformed powerlevels radiating from nearby>Other(write in)
>>4661629Wait, is she acting like a shit to get Turles to work out?
>>4661629>Check in on Leyas and Sarada, you can feel both their transformed powerlevels radiating from nearbyOh this oughta be good.
>>4661632Hmmm, so many good options.>Check in on Leyas and Sarada, you can feel both their transformed powerlevels radiating from nearbyChaya and Raven are big girls, they'll be fine for a bit.

>>4661643>I think she just realized what he's aiming to do.Guess we need to up our training by bringing him along with our regular students.>There was that four-armed alien outside, you wonder what he wants if he’s still thereNooo, don't, lets make him come to us, or get his ass kicked by our kids,
>>4661632this isn't me changing my vote here>>4661647
>>4661647Turles is a fair bit beyond our regular students. And he did kind of come to us, we ignored him. Might as well get it over with instead of snubbing him more
>>4661651>Turles is a fair bit beyond our regular studentsThen he can be our acting assistant trainer.>And he did kind of come to us, we ignored himWe were in the middle of kinda important shit, and it's not like we didn't tell him exactly what was gonna keep happening as long as he stayed as he was.
>>4661651We were brought onto a striketeam to end the war, we didn't really have time. But yeah, it's time we prepare him for a bruised pelvis.
>>4661654We didn't tell him anything at all? We just past him
>>4661632>>There was that four-armed alien outside, you wonder what he wants if he’s still there>>4661636I think you meant to post that on /x/ buddy.
>>4661638>>4661641>>4661642>>4661643>>4661676Check in on Leyas and Sarada, you can feel both their transformed powerlevels radiating from nearby wins it. And, for no reason at all roll me a d100

>>4661632And before you can answer him, feel two sudden, explosive surges of ki as Leyas and Sarada both transform. Both of their ki signatures spike, rising well above their normal Super Saiyan levels. Something’s going on.“That.” you reply, turning to the oldest twins as you transform as well. “Tatsu, Tomi. Take your younger siblings.”“Right.” they both reply simultaneously, each one taking ahold of their youngest opposite. You then transform into a Super Saiyan yourself, emerald aura spiking up around you as you turn to Meloka.“Let’s go.” you say, the two of you blasting into the air and leaving twin gold and green streaks in the air as you fly. It takes only seconds for you to reach the city’s outskirts, where you find them on the opposite side of the city as the arena. In fact you feel their power from the forest, seeing their blazing white auras from the sky. Then they move, slamming into each other hard enough for the shockwave to reach you all the way up here. You glance to Meloka and nod once, the two of you dropping down to get a better look at what’s happening. But as you get closer, you find yourself more confused instead of less. Between the two part-demon Saiyans stands another fighter, blocking hits from both sides. “What the hell?”“Looks like they may need our help.” Meloka says, more than a dozen of her Warding Eyes already hovering around her. You nod back, gather your ki into your right fist, and launch yourself down at the planet. As you dash down you see their opponent as a rather large man, bigger than Leyas but not as massive as Ubo as he punches Sarada in the gut hard enough to lift her off her feet while back-kicking Leyas in the chest and knocking him away. At the last second the mysterious fighter senses you, looking up just in time to see you dropping down right at him.“RRRRAAAAAAAA!!” you roar, punching at his head with a ki-clad fist. The warrior raises his right arm, intercepting the blow with his forearm. Your ki explodes, knocking Sarada clear as to your surprise, you feel your energy getting absorbed into this foe. “What?”“Karn, be careful!” Leyas shouts. “He can absorb your energy attacks!”“Oh that’s bullshit!” you shout back, flipping back away and landing on your feet then taking your fighting stance.“You. You’re the one who killed Father.” he says, you getting a good look at the man. And that’s when you realize that, like that giant demon Trigon, this man has four eyes too. “Karn.”cont
>>4661803“You know who I am, but I have no idea who you are.” you reply. “Or why you’re on my planet.”“Hmph! Arrogant mortal. Thinking all that happens is because of you.” he says, eyes blazing crimson. “Soon you, and your entire pitiful race will be crushed beneath our boots. Then we demons shall rule-!”And what he was saying is interrupted as Meloka, who’d been sneaking up behind him, decapitates the demon with an ‘x’ slice from her ki blades. His head falls off his body amidst a spray of blood, then to your surprise the warrior disappears in a blaze of hellish flames. Then after a few seconds the fires fade, taking that fighter along with them.“You guys alright?” you ask, turning to Sarada. Who’s already standing, and seems more annoyed than anything else. “What happened?”“We were just sparring, when that bastard just walked up to us out of the trees.” she says, scowling. “Then he just fucking attacked us. He ate our first combined attack, and that’s when we knew that bastard wasn’t a pushover.”“Couldn’t sense his energy either, so figured better to fight it safe.” Leyas follows up, the four of you gathering in the clearing’s center. “Then you showed up. Thanks for the assist.”“No problem. Just hate he got away.” you reply, transforming back down. “But at least he won’t be back for awhile.”“Hey, I have an idea.” Sarada says, aura again flaring up as she leaps back from you and takes her stance. “How about we spar for a bit? Since you’re here already and everything?”“That sounds like a good time.” Leyas answers, leaping over to her side and doing the same. “What do you say?”Well?>”Sure, I’m in!”>Ask Meloka if she wants to, 2v2 if she does and 1v2 if she doesn’t >Not now, you really feel the need to go speak with Raven again right about now>Other(write in)

>>4661805“Actually, there was something I was hoping to talk to you both about.” you say, powering back down so there’s no way they could think it’s a trick for a cheeky attack. “It’s about Chilli.”“He’s your oldest, right?” Leyas asks, you nodding. “You two got so many now it’s hard to keep them all straight.”“While we were with Lord Freeza on High Charity, an enemy captured my son.” you say, both of their expressions immediately turning to shock, eyes wide. “And when I found him, he was in bad shape. Another minute, and he would have been dead.”“Damn, sorry to hear that.” Sarada says, clearly upset. “But, why are you telling us?”“Because the bastard who captured him had him for a long time.” you say, realization slowly dawning on their faces. “And I want to help him, because he reminds me of how you two were after fighting that bastard Demongo.”As you speak the name of Aku’s former minion, both shiver as if a glacier had suddenly been pressed to their backs.“He’s just as lucky as you two are to be alive.” you continue, pressing on despite how uncomfortable they seem to be at the mention of the one who’d killed them. “But ever since he came back, he’s been...Off. I think he’s hearing things too, and I don’t know what to do.”“Really know how to bring the mood down, huh?” Sarada says, dropping out of her transformation and reverting to her base form. Leyas does so as well, both looking a whole lot less enthusiastic than they did just a few moments ago. “I don’t want to talk about it.”And before you can say anything else she takes to the air, blasting off further from the city as Leyas sighs out.“Look, I get it.” Leyas says, laying a hand on your shoulder. “You really care about your kids. But we’re still dealing with what that bastard did to us. Most days we can forget about it and act like everything’s normal, but not when someone starts talking about it. So just, don’t mention it again, okay?”“Sorry, I won’t.” you reply, holding your right hand out towards him. He takes the offering, you both clasping forearms before he lets go and takes off after his sister. Leaving you feeling somehow even worse.“That didn’t go how I thought it would.” yoy say, Meloka flying over and wrapping her arms around you and hanging off your shoulders. “Dammit.”You stand there with Meloka, just taking a quiet moment when a familiar voice yells out.cont
>>4661967>Ox KingHe's pretty weak, but that's more a result of his lack of training past a certain point and the environment he was raised in.>RoshiDid you not see him during the ToP? That shit was extremely impressive despite being geriatric.>King VegetaProbably never trained a day in his life and was the strongest Saiyan of his era, barring one freak of nature.>ParagusCircumstances being what they are, he never got his chance to shine. His genetics are still absolutely fucking nuts though.>NappaHow dare you discredit the Prince's personal attendant. That man was tearing through Earth's heroes until Goku showed up with his new gimmick.
>>4661967What did they mean by this?
>>4661979“Everything okay?” Tatsu and Tomi shout simultaneously. You turn and look up, seeing your kids have gathered in the sky above the clearing.“We’re fine.” you call back, lifting back into the air. Meloka let’s go, taking back both Karn Jr and Okira and holding one in each arm to her. “They were just practicing and getting a little rowdy.”The story seems to appease them, none questioning it. But now that leaves you with one question:What now?>Head back to Raven, have her continue teaching the other kids while you and Meloka take Okira to the doctor>Head back to Raven, let the kids play while you ask her about the demons showing up>Find Nappa, and see what he’s been up to since getting back>Track down your students, tell them training starts tomorrow>Go back to the labs and find B7, tell him he’s more than welcome to join in tomorrow’s training with your other students>Other(write in)

>>4661984>Head back to Raven, let the kids play while you ask her about the demons showing upI feel bad that we didn't give Leyas and Sarada the support they needed all this time...they're practically our siblings. And when they opened up to us in the past, we didn't take it as seriously as we should have.There's got to be something we can do for them to make up for it, and help them now. It's better off in the hands of professionals, but I don't think they're willing to see a professional about it, being the stubborn saiyans that they are.
>>4661999>When was the last time we talked to Nappa?Wasn't he there during the final conference before the raid on High Charity?
>>4661984>Go find the one four armed fighter, you want to blow off some steam
>>4662002Closest thing we've got to a professional on New Salda is probably Raven, and from what I remember they already train with her regularly.
>>4662003He was, but we didn’t get the chance to interact with him iirc. I think he just gave us a worried look as he left and that was it.
>>4662015She's still unlicensed!Damn it raven, you have access to PTO Extranet. You should be getting your online degree in this stuff.
>>4662018>Damn it raven, you have access to PTO Extranet. You should be getting your online degree in this stuff.Fool. Degrees and certificates are illusions conjured by the man to fool you into thinking higher education is necessary.Fuck the system. Practice medicine without a license. Store food in "unsafe" temperatures. Be your own man goddamnit.
>>4662002Yeah, probably could have had the decency to be more of a pal to them beyond popping in when we needed them.
>>4662030The Cold Clan offers scholarships for a reason!When is Karn going to finally take advantage of his General-Class Scholarship and get his Doctorate in Arcosian Literature completely free of charge? When is Meloka going to get her Masters in Theoretical Physics?

>>4662092Yeah, hoping to get tons of interactions done, really hang with our family. That list doesn't even include things like how we basically weren't there to help Raven grieve when the Guardian died, or how we haven't had a non-fight related talk with Ubo. I get that we're busy, but hopefully we can really enjoy our time now with everyone
>>4662092We're only one man. We can only do so much, and for as much as everyone looks to us for help, at the end of the day we're only truly good at fighting, killing, destroying. Karn knows little to nothing about creating or mending things, it's simply not in his nature to fix what's already broken. The best he can do is to try to stop things from being broken in the first place, usually by eliminating the cause. When things slip through the cracks? That's when he has to learn to rely on others, and let them do what THEY do best to fix things.I fear that Chili already knows this about Karn. That he's next to useless outside of murder.

>>4662134Well there was that one Acid Surface Stand not too long ago
>>4662134A promise is a promise, and she worries about us regardless of the circumstances.

>>4662140I mean, anyone with a ki wave could have dealt with it desu. And we didn't exactly safely itneract with it, we lucked out as the plan led to us literally squashing the stand user by accident.
>>4662146We didn't know what it could do, and we were still the only ones able to do anything, so.
>>4662140>Oooouch, I mean, it doesn't help that in our species we are literally a genetic and mental outlier.Unique as we may be, it remains to be seen if we're truly exceptional or just too deluded to see otherwise.>And we keep that promise, war time work is still our job, and we do our best regardless of that.I know, I just hate to constantly toe the line and make her worry like that. She's gone through enough bullshit on account of being with us, least we can do is stop giving her a reason to fear for the worst.God knows how she's gonna take it when we do kick the bucket playing hero.
>>4662149We kinda of new what it could so, and GD even told us we could have asked any of the Black Dragons for help at any time. And again all the non-Stand users also could have easily dealt with the acid stand user
>>4662125>That he's next to useless outside of murder.It’s harsh, but true. Karn is from the old generation of Saiyans that only knew how to fight, fuck, eat and die. At least this new generation seems to be evolving from solely living like that.
>>4662150>I know, I just hate to constantly toe the line and make her worry like that. She's yandere broodwife goddess(eventually), she will always do that.>She's gone through enough bullshit on account of being with us, least we can do is stop giving her a reason to fear for the worst.And we do, baring Stand bullshit, take situations as competently as possible.>God knows how she's gonna take it when we do kick the bucket playing hero.We already know, we met Punished Meloka, she knows because she also met Punished Meloka. We finished our last major battle for the foreseeable future, and now its time for SoL and PTSD aid to friends and family.>>4662157We we more than capable of doing our job, and we needed to show our ability at the time. Plus Kano was being a fuck, even if he was an amiable fuck. There isn't much comparison for that situation.
>>4662140>That's Stand bullshitwell, we did still charge into it after we saw it melt somebody
>>4662161>At least this new generation seems to be evolving from solely living like thatThat brings up an interesting point. I can imagine that while Chilli might be aware of how utterly limited we are as a person, he might not understand how he's falling into the same trap.All of his goals in life are starting to tie back into killing in some way or another.I don't want him to grow up and realize he's exactly what he finds abhorrent about his us.
>>4662165We didn't know it was all over the spot, just where the guy melted.
>>4662161Wait a minute...is this how Tatsu feels?>Watches his son struggle with things that he knows he couldn't help with>Wants to find some way, any way of helping, but he's from a generation where things were different and he knows he's set in his ways>Can sometimes only sit on the sidelines while other people help the people he cares about with certain things
>>4662172For as god-like as any Saiyan is, it must suck to be one of the rare few with the emotional capacity and lifespan to actually witness this sort of thing.
>>4662168Now hold on there, I don't think Chilli finds anything abhorrent in us so to speak. I feel that's a tad too far>>4662164Now that I can agree with, it was basically the mindset I had for not voting Black Dragon aid at all. Though I disagree in the comparison bit, literally anyone could have shot a ki wave down the corridor and iced the sangheili
>>4662175Who knew that child soldiers would be so prone to depression and feelings of uselessness during peace and retirement?
>>4662176>I don't think Chilli finds anything abhorrent in us so to speakMaybe not now, but if he's left to deal with this on his own for too long, he might come to some unsettling conclusions.
God I love our mental health debates for a Dragon Ball Quest.>>4662176That corridor had a guy with a reflection ability, that only we could see and do anything about, Kano's crew were really only equipment moves with us for all the good they're power levels were.>>4662179THIS ARC, DEPRESSION AND BAR B QUE>>4662181AND I TOLD YOU FUCKS TO LOOK AFTER HIM, VOTED AND EVERYTHING, WHAT HAPPENED, FORCE GIMMICKS!
>>4662184We did check up on him anon, he's fine currently.>>4662181If he was left with Bane, maybe, but he's in good hands and we're keeping in touch
>>4662184We do check up on him anon, we’re just not being pushy and invading his privacy.
>>4662184>AND I TOLD YOU FUCKS TO LOOK AFTER HIM, VOTED AND EVERYTHING, WHAT HAPPENED, FORCE GIMMICKS!Look, he needs space right now. I think that much is understood.I was referring to the fact that if we let this play out in the long term like we did with so many other things, it could end up with us letting down our son when it matters the most.We already fucked up when he was a kid, I'm determined not to let it happen again. Not to him or any of his siblings.
>>4662184>this guy who thinks charging into a stand enhanced killing field ambush instead of consulting our fellow stand users wasn't a mistake also sees our force tools as a gimmickyou're only making me think force training is a better idea than I already do
>>4662190>it could end up with us letting down our son when it matters the most.He already thinks we don't care.>>4662186>>4662188And I was talking about in general when you fuckers wanted to ignore him, for the quote, memes, when he was a kid.>>4662194The same Stand users that were only useful for color commentary, besides Dark Slash girl with the clown, and wouldn't have been helpful anyways?>force trainingThere's the dumbass that thinks Sith training has any value.
>>4661984“But for now let’s go, I have to catch up with someone.” you say, taking a moment to focus your ki sense and find who you’re looking for. And considering the powerlevel of those around him, it takes little time for you to lock on to his ki signature. “I’m going over to the labs, who wants to come?”Everyone does, so you and Meloka lead your family back towards the city. Before you reach it you turn, headed towards the cluster of buildings and scrapped Covenant warships. Thankfully they don’t try and use your family as impromptu target practice, as they’d done to you before, but the entire time before landing at the door have your Barrier primed and ready to shield you and your family. As you land the door slides open, and you’re greeted by an unfamiliar face.“Umm, sorry, but we don’t have any-oh!” the young woman in a lab coat says, clearly expecting someone else. “Uhh h-hello. Can I help you?”“Yeah, I just need to talk to B7 real quick.” you tell the girl. “It’s about his training.”“Of course General, come on inside.” she says, moving aside. “I wasn’t aware you’d be coming personally.”“I’d told him before the war ended that I’d train him.” you say, heading right for the elevator that leads down. “And I’m here to make good on my word.”“Of course sir.” she says, walking with you all to the elevator. Once inside she presses a single button lower on the panel, and steps back out as the doors begin sliding shut. “Good luck!”“Thanks?” you reply, confused by her response as the doors shut in your face. You turn to Meloka, who looks just as confused as you do as the elevator begins descending and simply shrugs.“Daddy, who’s B7?” Kayle asks, your second-youngest daughter looking up at you curiously. “Is he one of your friends?”“He is a friend, yes.” you reply, ruffling her hair and smiling at her. Which is a gesture she returns, and it warms your heart to see such genuine joy. You just hope one day Chilli will be able to smile like that again. A few moments later the elevator dings, doors opening into a more familiar workshop. But you can’t focus on that, instead your attention is drawn to the hulking metal suit right there before you. It’s larger than you, nearly as big as your Berserker form, and radiates with menace.“Karn.” it’s mechanical voice says, pulling it’s right fist back goes to punch square at your face. Well, that’s one way to greet you.How do you react?>Match the punch with one of your own>Let it hit you, don’t even try and block it>Catch it’s fist with your hand, but don’t try to break it>Try and Instant Transmission, disappear behind it as the fist closes in>Try and stop that fist with telekinesis, before it can hit you>Other(write in)
>>4662201>>Try and stop that fist with telekinesis, before it can hit you
>>4662201>Activate Energy Body, tank the hitSounds like fun.
>>4662197>He already thinks we don't care.That's probably a direct result of us caring about his wellbeing first and foremost.I get that he's resentful of the fact that we didn't immediately pull a Karn and IT in to grab him. But when his life was on the line, we had to stop and really think about how we'd keep him safe.Doing our usual gimmick would have been far too risky, and I completely get why he's not aware of that fact.It still sucks that it ended up shattering his trust in us after we spent so long trying to get back on good terms with him.
>>4662201>>Activate Unmovable Energy Body, tank the hit>>4662205Sorry I forgot to specify which technique but this one is probably the better one to go for.
>>4662201>>Catch it’s fist with your hand, but don’t try to break it>>4662197>thinks Sith training has any value.we've gotten a shit ton of mileage out of telekinesis alone
>>4662201>Activate Energy Body, tank the hit
>>4662219>we've gotten a shit ton of mileage out of telekinesis aloneWe learned telekinesis from the Guardian though.Back when Su-Ma was our preferred fighting style.
>>4662218Eh, either or should work.>>4662219Yeah, just basic force abilities, Full Sith training is an extreme liability to be able to use.>>4662230This, basically only thing we got from Bane is Dejim So, and I think we fucked around with Lightning once or twice.
>>4662197>when you fuckers wanted to ignore him, for the quote, memes, when he was a kid.Don't put imaginary charges on me, I never wanted to ignore him and went on about I felt we should give him more of our attention.>The same Stand users that were only useful for color commentary, besides Dark Slash girl with the clown, and wouldn't have been helpful anyways?We'd not have known where Chilli was without their aid, don't disrespect them like that. And they proved very versatile, it's unfair to act like they were completely useless.>There's the dumbass that thinks Sith training has any value.It helped us not tire out, got through one of the obstacles in our path and moving beyond sith stuff, force in general has proven super useful to us.>He already thinks we don't care.He's not in the right mindset currently, and we have to accept that. We'll show him we care through actions, as we always try to
>>4662243>We'd not have known where Chilli was without their aid, don't disrespect them like that. And they proved very versatile, it's unfair to act like they were completely useless.Kano's aid, and the Dark Slash girl, the rest were barely able to keep each other alive, and weren't much help in fighting openly against the rest of the Covenant, until Freeza let them leave.>It helped us not tire outBane did that by changing our brain to make use of the ability.>got through one of the obstacles in our path And almost got us killed until we ignored the drive to monologue.>force in general has proven super useful to us.Majority of which we basic skills taught to us by Yoda, which Bane can't teach after a certain point after the basics we already know.>He's not in the right mindset currently, and we have to accept that.He thought that before the clown, theclown just made it worse.>We'll show him we care through actions, as we always try toOne thing you said so far that is correct and I agree with. I just hope we don't fuck it up because of this>>4662172
>>4662243>>4662262Man I just want with lightning
>>4662268Pretty sure we have it, but we can just Death Beam someone for a faster kill.
>>4662272Force Lightning is just nice to have for the times when we can't Death Beam or Energy Bomb our problems away.Not to mention it pairs extremely well with a lot of other Dark Side powers and Karn's general RAGE motif.
>>4662274....there has literally been no time when our death beam or ki blast was less efficient that Force Lightning. That move is just for torture kills.>Rage motifOur Eye Beams give us a death glare that people watch us turn enemies into Swiss chees.
>>4662262Chameleon guy found Chilli, if he hadn't we'd have had to fight our way through the entire thing in search of him.Still sith powers, and I'd not be shocked if he couldn't without us delving into Sith stuff.It never almost got us killed, that's an assumption based on nothing, and we still ended up taking the time to talk instead of kill the clownThat force comment was more addressed to your earlier dismissal of force focus than anything elseHe knows that's not true though, he saw it for himself how much we cared when he healed. It's just between that and the clown, one of those takes more focus.
>>4662274>Not to mention it pairs extremely well with a lot of other Dark Side powers
>>4662268>>4662272We uh... don't have itA;so siding with>>4662282There has been 0 occasions force lightning would have been better in place of those moves, it's good offensive to bypass ki difference, it's certainly not one of our go to's for quick and simple killing
>>4662282There have been times when our conventional attacks failed to affect an opponent, granted I can't name any off the top of my head.I can only assume that it's gonna become more and more common as time goes on and more people become aware of who we are and what we do.I think the general utility of Force Lighting at the very least makes it something worth mastering.
>>4662204>>4662205>>4662218>>4662219>>4662222Activate Energy Body, and tank the hit wins it. Bringing back a nearly-abandoned technique, I like it. But due to that, it’ll be a little harder. Roll me a d100.DC: 40
>>4662284>>4662274Fucking keyboard.>Not to mention it pairs extremely well with a lot of other Dark Side powersThat we can't or don't use because Dark Side abilities mutate the user to use them more effectively.>>4662283>Still sith powers, and I'd not be shocked if he couldn't without us delving into Sith stuff.Same as above. Karn is not and can never be Sith enough to use them It is and always will be gimmick abilities unless Karn's character is fundamentally changed.>It never almost got us killed, that's an assumption based on nothing, It almost got us to waste time monologing the clown so he could cheap shot us.>That force comment was more addressed to your earlier dismissal of force focus than anything elseAnd you know I am talking about the Sith ability obsessed moron.>>4662288>There has been 0 occasions force lightning would have been better in place of those moves,That we still get around with our other abilities anyways.>it's certainly not one of our go to's for quick and simple killingWhich is precisely the reason why it's useless to us, because we don't have the time to fuck around unless the opponent is already so weak we wouldn't need it anyways.>>4662290>There have been times when our conventional attacks failed to affect an opponent, granted I can't name any off the top of my head.Which is why it is a worthless distraction to dilute our already wide skillset and training requirements for more important abilities.>I can only assume that it's gonna become more and more common as time goes on and more people become aware of who we are and what we do.We are literally one of the most famous individuals in the galaxy besides our king, our daughter, and our boss, and have billions in fans from our Training Program videos galaxy wide. They know what we can do, and it doesn't matter.>I think the general utility of Force Lighting at the very least makes it something worth mastering.Again, that is the ONLY one that would feasibly be useful, if not for the fact it literally has no use for us except in the most absurd JoJo bullshit tier of situations, that we can, have, will continue to get around without it.

>>4662307Yeah, I hate that we don't get the chance to pull it out more so I was happy to see the chance>>4662309I mean, there's no proof we can't be sith enough to use it. They'll be gimmicks.... to you. Last I checked you aren't the only one in this quest.Oh wow, the thing it almost got us to do might have been the exact shit we did, except better because then we'd have at least benefitted in some way from the fear.You can't scream about hating force gimmicks in caps lock and then act like I'm the obsessed moron like you have any room to talk.There is always a reason to have more versatility, when we got DDF we lost half our arsenal, hence why investing into force stuff looks good, because it can fill the gap.You missed the point where it could cover gaps in terms of ki and the like, already making it useful since it can still hit like a truck regardless of who.
>>4662341Anon, there’s no point in arguing with this particular anon. If you’ve been here long enough you’ll know he’s to autistically stubborn to ever budge on anything. Just wait for training voting to see who wins.
>>4662341>Oh wow, the thing it almost got us to do might have been the exact shit we did, except better because then we'd have at least benefitted in some way from the fear.Temporarily, and that's the point, the fear doesn't last forever and the amount of time waste to make it would literally never work until after we're dead of old age.>I mean, there's no proof we can't be sith enough to use it.Are you ignoring the fact we needed Bane to fuck with our brain itself to even activate it, or are you pretending to be retarded?>They'll be gimmicks.... to you.Yeah, because Darkside abilities are gimmicks, when we have dozens of better, faster, more efficient options.>You can't scream about hating force gimmicks in caps lock and then act like I'm the obsessed moron like you have any room to talk.>Every thread>Lets do more Dark side training, lets do more dark side training, lets do more darkside training.>There is always a reason to have more versatility, when we got DDF we lost half our arsenal, The only move we really missed out on is Dragon Breath, and even then we might be able to wish that ability back.>hence why investing into force stuff looks good,The abilities we got and use from Yoda that we only use situationally.

Thus making anything like Force Lightning a luxury gimmick ability that isn't useful in our higher end fights we will almost exclusively be in, and be noting but a show off in weaker fights.>>4662353I am correct, autism has nothing to do with it.

For moves that we either don't have and would have to, and stay with me now, also spend time to get it fit for actual battle. It's almost like that describes literally any category of move learning.>Oh no, I saw, and it also never, ever came up once, when unless the individual in question was energy attack immune to begin with, and we only use our techniques, weapons, brute strength, or telekinesis to overcome. Thus making anything like Force Lightning a luxury gimmick ability that isn't useful in our higher end fights we will almost exclusively be in, and be noting but a show off in weaker fights.We literally got first hand, prime time experience of the "gimmick" dealing with a high end opponent who didn't overcome it with any of that. And what's more, force stuff relies on an outside energy that perpetuates throughout everything, which is why it's a good investment as it spares us tapping into our own reserves.
>>4662392But you also sperg out every time sith training is brought up, so from an outside perspective it just looks like two autistic retards fighting.
>>4662368>that whole postnah
>>4662396>Hurr durr we can never learn to do this on our ownThat isn't what I said and you know it, we can't do it without having a Sith Specter fuck in our head to demonstrate it.

Little private discussion you have that confirms this? Or is this just a source: trust me bro thing....You know how the pastebin link works right?

Yeah a Stand, hardly a reasonable comparison or argument.>And what's more, force stuff relies on an outside energy that perpetuates throughout everything, which is why it's a good investment as it spares us tapping into our own reserves.That we already have and use with Telekinesis, and doesn't require the gimmick sith training to improve.>>4662404And the guy ignoring everything for Sith training somehow isn't?>>4662407Nah.
>>4662396>>4662415Can we leave the walls of text during a run to GD's story posts?
>>4662421When the Sith tard shuts up.
>>4662421Hey now, I double space my paragraphs and split my posts up. It’s no longer giant unformatted blocks of text.
>>4662434Don't worry GD. We know you work hard writing, just ignore us screeching for a bit.
>>4662434Oh, I didn't mean anything against you. I was more referring to length of post rather than how clustered together the post is.
>>4662415You said we'd never be sith enough to do it, word for word. Don't go moving goalposts now.Oh yeah, the pastebin link that tells us all the options and outcomes of future endeavors. Why do we bother with discussion when we can get all the future stuff right there without worry.So we did lose multiple things, you admit? Continue moving the goalpost, just wanted to make sure you realized that first.Bane took a long time to get to his level but two things. One, we've already proven we can excel and pick things up quickly, and two we don't need to get to his level, just having a good range of abilities is good.>Name something we can't do with our current skillset right now without Sith training for a certain ability beyond Force Drain.This does literally nothing to address what you greentexted. I->>4662421fine, I'll cut things short>>4662424Dude. You've been schizoposting about the evil sith anon for the past 3 threads give or take. it's annoying, especially when you've been proven time and again it isn't just one anon because you argue with multiple of them. If you don't want to do sith training fine, but don't anyone who disagrees is some rampant sithfag especially when your the one who makes such a big deal about even thinking of doing sith training whenever the force is mentioned.
>>4662421Seriously. This shit is so fucking annoying.
>>4662443I was just making a joke, to try and calm everyone here down and stop the arguing.
>>4662415>And the guy ignoring everything for Sith training somehow isn't?I was clearly talking about both of you, but also you in particular because of how vehemently you come at anyone who’s for something that you’re not. It’s honestly concerning, man.
>>4662447>You said we'd never be sith enough to do it, word for word.Because being Sith enough to do would require Dark Side training in our brain to work. As Karn is not nor ever will be truly Sith enough the training would be useless. You know that.>Oh yeah, the pastebin link that tells us all the options and outcomes of future endeavors.

Continue moving the goalpost, just wanted to make sure you realized that first.Which wasn't even the point of the argument, and you can argue anything without trying to ignore the original point to begin with.>One, we've already proven we can excel and pick things up quickly,In our martial training for Dejim So, with Bane stating we are not adequate in the more mental and philosophical teachings for Sith training. >and two we don't need to get to his level, just having a good range of abilities is good.That is only true on a surface level if you ignore the time it takes to learn the principles of the Force ability, become corrupted enough by the Darkside training to use said ability while simultaneously ignoring our need to keep it from mutating us with the Dark Sides influence, thus making the ability less effective. >This does literally nothing to address what you greentexted. I-You still haven't said anything we can't do already that would require Darkside training, just abilities from our old version of Dragon Force, that we can still use the core function of, the only abilities it had that even have an equivalent in use in Sith abilities is Drain. Everything else we can do on our own and replicate in some capacity. >You've been schizoposting about the evil sith anon for the past 3 threads give or take. it's annoying, especially when you've been proven time and again it isn't just one anon because you argue with multiple of themIt still doesn't change the fact its a stupid waste of time, and you changing my argument to anything Force related besides the Sith training you are pushing for.>but don't anyone who disagrees is some rampant sithfag especially when your the one who makes such a big deal about even thinking of doing sith training whenever the force is mentioned.And yet you say nothing about the guy constantly bringing it up when there is no value in it.

>>4662201Watching the mechanical fist fly at your face, you don’t exactly feel threatened by it. In fact, you decide to try and break out an older move you haven’t used in awhile. Your ki expands out a few inches from your body on all sides, cloaking your as you feel it harden. Your energy becomes solid, and an instant later the suit’s fist crashes against your hardened energy. Which is still an odd sensation. You can feel the full force of the blow, but with your energy absorbing most of the impact what actually touches you is far, far less. And given the punch wasn’t enough to actually hurt you in the first place, it feels like little more than a flick.“Woah! How’d you do that?” Maz asks, eyes wide. “That was so cool!”“That’s the Energy Body. I’ll teach you how to do it later.” you tell him, then turn back. “Daiko, I see you’ve gotten that stealth suit upgraded a bit. How’s the re-setup been going?”“Designing things to be modular has been a great assist, and we’re already back to prewar efficiency.” he says, backing up a few seconds before the entire suit begins opening up. And out from the back steps the familiar Saiyan scientist and researcher, who inherited his position as lead from his late mentor. Who’s box you still have on your ship, too. “What brings you around today? Here to check out some of our newest tools?”“We can, if you don’t mind. But I do need to talk to B7 first.” you tell him. “I did promise to train him, after all.”“And neither has he, let me tell you.” he says, barking orders at someone to move the suit as he leads you deeper inside. “B7 has been rather dejected, thinking with the war already over you wouldn’t keep those training sessions of yours alive. What changed your mind?”“Huh? I never planned to halt the trainings.” you tell him as he leads you past several weapons tests. You see another, similar suit taking a direct blow from a Gravity Hammer, only for the wielder to be blown back. Another is testing a rifle-like weapon, firing an azure beam right through an armored Sangheili breastplate and into the reinforced, scorched and pockmarked wall behind it. “I told them once things were all moved out of the Lucrehulk and everyone got settled we’d pick them back up.”“Either way, I’m sure he’ll be excited.” Daiko says, leading you further and further in. Out of that testing room he leads you to an observation deck, B7 in the training room below. But he’s not alone, another one of the scientists are in another suit facing him down. “Right now he’s helping test the newest suit design at ten times New Salda’s gravity.”cont
>>4662477“Ten times, huh?” you say, turning your full attention to B7. “Let’s see how he handles it.”“HAAA!!” the suit-wearer shouts, punching down at B7. With the enhanced gravity working with the punch it’s faster than the one Daiko threw at you earlier, but B7 easily dodges the blow by launching himself forward and down into a slide between the machine’s legs, then drives his left elbow into the back of it’s right leg as he slides past. The blow buckles the suit’s leg, knocking it down to that knee. But it doesn’t fall without a fight, kicking back with it’s left leg right at B7. Who narrowly avoids taking the blow directly, but it still clips his shoulder and sends the Saldaman spinning.“Those suits seem pretty durable.” you muse, wondering how it would hold up once B7 transforms? But what really surprises you is the suit’s speed. It doesn’t move all that fast, but even under ten times gravity it isn’t slowed at all. Whereas B7’s movements are noticeably a bit heavier and less graceful, between the gravity and variable training weights strapped to his arms and legs. Yet he still rises to his feet faster than the machine, taking his fighting stance he copied from you as the suited man turns to face him. “How well does it hold up once B7 transforms?”“Let’s find out!” Daiko says excitedly, activating the room’s comms. “B7, let us move onto the next stage! Transform, if you would please.”“Of course!” the Saldaman says, clenching his fists as his golden aura surges up around him. “HRRRAAAAA!!”“WOAH!!”“COOL!”“NO WAY!!”Your children all shout in surprise as B7 transforms, his body shifting to a brilliant golden shine.“Well? Which test should we start?” Daiko asks you. “Shall we test the suit’s durability, it’s power, the stealth? Or we could just let them slug it out, and watch the fireworks?”Well?>Durability, you’re curious just how tough it is>Strength, see if it can overpower B7 as he is now>Stealth, you’re interested in seeing it work from an outside, not the one being hunted perspective>Let them brawl, it could be fun to watch>Other(write in)

>>4662479>Durability, you’re curious just how tough it isPretty important for our PTO grunts.
>>4662479>Stealth, you’re interested in seeing it work from an outside, not the one being hunted perspective
>>4662479Oh yeah, did we ever let our new kids know they have half demon family members, and technically a Super Siabaman as siblings?
>>4662489They all, except the younger twins, Okira, and Karn Jr know about their half-siblings. But B7 is something else

>>4662404>autistic retardsAh yes. The fabled retarded retard.
>>4662631A truly legendary being
>>4662479“Let’s start with durability, why not?” you say. “All the bells and whistles in the world don’t matter if the user dies from a single attack in something that moves that slow.”“One durability test, coming up.” he says to you, then reopens comms. “B7, we’ll be starting the durability test now. Ready Been?”“Ready!” the suited scientist replies, pulling her right fist back as B7 mirrors her. “Firing!”And she punches right for B7’s head. The Saldaman punches back in kind, flesh and metal smashing together at the two fighters’ full power. The resulting shockwave rattles the observation window, but it doesn’t give. Which is more than you can say for the suit’s metal hand. You see sparks come from it as the user tries to open the hand several times before stopping, the sparks stopping as well.“Mechanical failure, unable to re-open right hand.” the suited scientist says, who you now realize is a female. “But I’m fine.”“Good, next trial.” Daiko orders through comms. Both fighters get evenly spaced apart, and from the way they’re standing you know what’s coming next. Both will fire off left turning kicks at the other, to test that leg armor’s durability. “Ready?”“Ready!” they both say, and she kicks. B7 waits a half-second before doing so as well, since he’s clearly much faster now. Once more flesh and metal collide, this time with less of a shockwave and more of an audible crunch. You look at their legs, and to your complete surprise see a few drops of what looks like blood fall from where their legs are connected. And to your surprise B7 is the one who backs off, clutching at his leg.“B7, report!” Daiko says, suddenly worried. “What happened?”“Something cut me.” he says, pulling his clawed hands back and looking at the injury. “Doesn’t seem deep, just surprised me. Been?”“Armor integrity comprised, the suit’s losing atmospheric pressure.” she says. “Recommend disabling the enhanced gravity so we can check the full extent of the damage.”“Standby Been.” Daiko says, pressing a few buttons. The room below begins changing from red ambient lighting back to normal, Daiko gesturing to a lift at the side of the observation room. “Shall we go take a closer look?”“Let’s go.” you say, leading your little group onto the lift with Daiko. He activates it, the platform breaking the airtight seal as it descends down into the room. Both B7 and the suited woman turn towards you all, B7’s face lighting up as he sees you. “Hey. Hard at work I see.”“Karn, hey! What’re you doi-?” he starts, but winces hard and collapses as he tries to put his full weight on his injured leg. “Gah!”cont
>>4662671“Stay down B7, let me take a look.” Daiko scolds him, rushing to the Saldaman before his suited subordinate who doesn’t seem to mind. You approach too but slower, giving him the space he needs to inspect your friend. “That’s a nasty one right there. Broke your inner xylem clean through, and that pressure you put on it certainly didn’t help. Here, hold still.”And as he says this Daiko pulls a rather wicked-looking syringe from his inner lab coat pocket, and inserts the needle directly into his open wound. But doesn’t immediately press the plunger down, instead meeting B7’s gaze directly.“Are you ready?” he asks, B7 gritting his teeth and clenching his fists as he nods once. “Alright. Three, two-“As Daiko counts down to two presses it down, injecting the entire syringe’s worth of fluid into the wound and almost immediately leaps back away. B7 howls in agony or rage one, golden aura flaring as he clutches either side of the injury to his shin as he rolls around. But after several moments of heart-wrenching screams he stops, the Saldaman reverting back to his base form as he flops tiredly backwards flat on his back, trying to catch his breath.“The hell was that?” you ask, turning on Daiko worriedly. Whatever he did seems to have done a number on B7, and you’re furious he’d hurt your friend. “What did you do to him?”“I did nothing bad, I only helped him! This is an enhanced version of the Saibamen growth formula, allowing for rapid cellular growth and regrowth.” Daiko says, revealing he has another three inside his coat, but two are already used up and empty. He’s gone through that three times today? “It’s painful, but the traditional Healing Pod formula doesn’t work very well at all on B7, since he is just as much a plant as an animal. With it’s limited effectiveness, we’ve had to devise another way to keep B7 in fighting shape.”“Hurts like hell.” B7 says wearily, not immediately trying to get up. “But that wears off in a few minutes, and I’ll be good as new.”“And before you ask, no. We can’t use this on people.” Daiko says to you directly. “Plants and animals have different cellular structures, and taking this injection would be like pouring dirty radiation directly into your body. At the absolute best-case, you’d be kept hospitalized while your entire bloodstream was thoroughly cleaned out.”“Yeah, no. Already done that once, never again.” you say, Daiko nodding at you. But then he looks to B7, and sighs out. “Looks like the durability test is over, at least for today.”What now?>Not yet. YOU can test how durable it is in B7’s place>Not yet, the kids could test the suit’s durability in his stead>Make sure his assistant, Been, is also okay before telling B7 the news>Let Daiko address his suited subordinate and assess it’s damage, while you give B7 the good news >Other(write in)

>>4662691>>4662695B7's already healed ain't he? I thought Daiko meant to stop it as in he's too tired to go on
>>4662697I don't think so, seems like he just got...growth serum? Plant Steroids.

>>4662765Wait, did we accidentally seduce the assistant with this?
>>4662806What? How did you even come to that conclusion?
>>4662813The Aku face.
>>4662673“I’ll be up in a few minutes, and we can try again.” B7 says, but Daiko is clearly unconvinced. However, instead of taking that issue up with B7 he simply lets the Saldaman rest, turning to his subordinate and walking over to her.“Catch your breath, I’ve got some good news for you in a minute.” you tell B7, catching his weary thumbs up as you also go to see if the assistant is okay.“You don’t feel any bleeding, no punctures, anything?” Daiko is asking her, Been having sat down and stretched the damaged leg out. To do so the suit is resting on it’s hands, but he seems unconcerned with that damage. Which makes sense, as her hand isn’t inside the suit’s hand as it’s much larger than she is. Unless there’s a seven-plus foot tall Saiyan woman you’ve somehow never seen before wandering around. Then again, you are in a scientist’s underground lab. And you’ve found all sorts of unbelievable things in these sorts of locations over the years. “What is the display saying about the damage?”“Vacuum seal broken, left shin.” she reads off compliantly. “Armor badly damaged, frame damaged.”“As I thought, that’s what he hit.” Daiko says, almost to himself as he pulls several mechanical tools from his large coat pockets. He quickly removes the mangled armor plate from the suit’s shin, and takes a look. You see that the impact actually took place just above where her foot is, about halfway up the suit’s shin.“So, which part hurt B7?” Broly asks, looking over Daiko’s shoulder but staying far enough back to not get in the way. “Is it that bar?”“I believe so.” Daiko tells him, pointing with one of his tools at the damaged plate. “See there? Where the armor gave, but stopped short in this line? It hit this frame support bar, here, and didn’t budge another inch. Which is impressive, have to remember to give Pinach a bonus for that idea.”“If that metal’s so much tougher than the armor, why not make the whole suit out of that metal then?” Meloka asks him, genuinely curious. You wonder that too, but didn’t opt to ask. “Why make it out of something weaker?”“Each piece of metal has it’s own properties.” Daiko says, gesturing to the support bar running up and down the leg right to the joints. “This metal is exceedingly resistant to blunt force, but only that. it’s easily cut, easily pierced, and quite weak to directed energy. Meanwhile the metal alloy these armor plates are made from, while not quite as resistant to tremendous force, reflect energy quite well and are quite hard to cut or pierce. Go on, take a shot at it.”cont
>>4662838“Uhhh, okay.” Meloka says, as Daiko hands her the mangled armor plate. She looks it over, then with her free hand creates a ki blade. She looks one more time to Daiko, who nods to her, and Meloka tosses it gently up. Then as the metal falls cuts upward, aiming to slice it clean in two. Instead her blade glances off the armor, it spinning over several times before falling to the ground in one piece. “Woah.”“Durable stuff, that.” he says, as Broly’s the one who picks it up off the ground. “But it looks like we need to rework the alloy, it’s too easily bent.”“Why is it one piece?” Broly asks him out of the blue. “The armor. Why is it only a single piece?”“What do you mean?” Daiko asks, attention suddenly and fully on Broly. He seems a little uncomfortable with the sudden attention, but answers.“Those robots Vox use, the battle ones. Their armor is layered.” he says, placing his hands on either side of the flattest side of the armor to try and demonstrate. “One layer of metal for one type of damage, the next for another, and another. Saw the same thing on his ships, when one got torn in half. Stupid bugs.”Daiko simply stares at him for several moments, before digging around his pockets frantically until he finds a small device he holds up to his mouth.“Next phase, layered armor. Repeat, layered multi metal armor. Cred Broly. Also, reinforce hands for directly punching.” he says into the device before putting it away. “Kid, you may have just given us the breakthrough we needed. Getting the armor right for these things hasn’t been very successful. But I think with your help, we might just get somewhere on these suits. Thanks a bunch!”“Uhh, you’re welcome?” Broly replies, still seeming a bit confused. But before anyone else can speak, the room’s comms go off.“Daiko, we’ve got a problem!” another female voice calls out frantically. “Project:Scyther has escaped it’s containment!”“Oh no.” Daiko says, face going white as he freezes, before shouting up at the observation deck. “Start the full lockdown immediately! Don’t let that thing get off of it’s floor under any circumstances!”“The hell’s this?” you ask, Daiko turning to you with a face full of fear. “What did you guys make?”“A monster.” he tells you, the man shaking slightly. “And if that thing escapes, it could kill half the people on this planet.”Well. That’s certainly not good. But you didn’t sense it’s ki above B7’s before he transformed, so it can’t be that dangerous right? Right?-Saiyan Conqueror Quest 151 paused-
>>4662843And that’s it for this weekend, everyone enjoying the ride? Ready to see what happens next, and face down the most terrifying creation they have? Curious what other mysteries are lurking down here below ground? All this and more, when episode 151 resumes next Saturday noon EST! Reminder, I won’t be continuing this episode tomorrow asfamily business happens.
>>4662845I can't say I'm surprised our scientist have created pokemon, but I'm not looking forward to matching blows with a beast with sword for arms. Glad to see Broly's very perceptive, really good that he managed point out the fact to the scientist. So the suits current model caps at around a pl of 16,140,000, not bad, not bad at all. Though we'll probably need to break the news to them that the war inventions won't be seeing much use in the coming years, but hey other avenues of science to look into now.
>willing to attack and ambush their own general to test equipment>creates dangerous monsters>power armor, enough saidI love our scientists, and that isn't sarcasm. They kinda remind me of the space pirates from Metroid, except less prone to catastrophic failure. I guess I can't say that for sure though until we see how big of a problem Scyther is.
>>4662838>Unless there’s a seven-plus foot tall Saiyan woman you’ve somehow never seen before wandering around.Is this a Fem Broly joke?>>4662843>Broly the little engineer that couldGood ol boy>“Project:Scyther has escaped it’s containment!”Did our scientists invent Pokemon?>>4662845The fuck did our R&D department make?!
>>4662843This is probably something more relevant to when tech is far more advanced, but actively altering the crystal alignment if the metal via electromagnetic fields could be very good for a more adaptive form of protection. A sensor would detect what kind of threat a particular area is about to face (energy, blunt, piercing, or cutting) and align the internal crystalline structure such that it’s as resilient against that as possible.If the covenant can create electromagnetic projectile sheaths for giant bolts of plasma, then this should be theoretically possible as well.
>>4662862>Though we'll probably need to break the news to them that the war inventions won't be seeing much use in the coming years, but hey other avenues of science to look into now.While true, Saiyan's as a whole won't be going anywhere, the rest of the PTO won't be able to get as strong as us, so they're experimentation is still very useful to the Empire at large. As they say, Saiyan Proofing a suit is a strong selling point.>>4662868In they're defense, it wasn't an ambush, they said hi first. But Monkey Science is the best for a reason.>>4662873We should have the materials, but we aren't intelligent enough to point that out.
>>4662862It’s gonna be fun. For me.He sees more than he speaks.Implying a sealed atmosphere suit that can take a blow isn’t one of the most useful inventions they’ve ever made.>>4662868They have fun.>>4662872HaHe isAnd they’ve made a monster. What do you get when your scientists want to make Saibamen more powerful and terrifying?>>4662873That’s well above their current level. Perhaps Arctus is on that tier, but nobody else you know. Towa’s specialty isn’t that field.>>4662876>Saiyan Proofing a suit is a strong selling point.Oh yes. But firing on you with the AA guns was really an ambush.
>>4662918>Implying a sealed atmosphere suit that can take a blow isn’t one of the most useful inventions they’ve ever madeNow if the plates themselves could expand or shift along with an undersuit made of whatever our current armor is, then you'd have a winner for the Saiyan forces in particular.
>>4662918>What do you get when your scientists want to make Saibamen more powerful and terrifying?Make a Japanese collectable toy but real.>Implying a sealed atmosphere suit that can take a blow isn’t one of the most useful inventions they’ve ever made.Saiyan proofing is the best tagline for a product. Kinda want to see our other PTO forces use them.>But firing on you with the AA guns was really an ambush.Barely noticed them though, so does it really count? Its like throwing a mouse trap on an elephant.
>>4662925The PTO bodysuits aren’t airtight, so making anything from that material wouldn’t be a sealed unit. Plus, it’s not like an Oozaru needs armor when their own bodies become 10x more durable.>>4662926HaVox may have already copyrighted it, but hasn’t made anything that solid yet.>barely noticedOrly? Karn noticed enough to dodge them and be upset when he finally got inside
>>4662945>Orly? Karn noticed enough to dodge them and be upset when he finally got insideWell yeah, he had babies on board.
So here's news from the pastebin [though I'm not sure how new and some of it i just wanted to note]First off kakarot had gotten ascended form.Looks like the movie villains Avo and Kado are both around and doing well for themselves. Possibly joined the ginyu force or perhaps they just got grouped near each other.Cele the super saiyan who I think was that one lady outside our family-friend group who got ssj has seen some major gains. Her super saiyan equals Caulifa's ascended form, we should see about getting to go beyond.Turles at max has officially surpassed Black Fire, making his still present fear a bit confusing. Broly and Tomitsu have both passed the 1 million base powerless landmark with Tomitsu rivaling full power Raditz when going all out
>>4662956>Turles at max has officially surpassed Black FireBut how long can he sustain that?
>>4662956Powerlevel* not powerless.>>4662945I don't suppose the lab is in need of an extra hand? With the end of this war arc I'd like our war kids to start picking up hobbies and I wouldn't mind Broly picking up and catching up on the literary side of things like the other older siblings. Caulifa too could go for a hobby, probably cooking with the shokugeki group
>>4662961Well he also surpassed her at just regular ssj, which he can supposedly sustain indefinitely, assuming he wasn't just showing off at the fancy restaurant.
>>4662956>Turles at max has officially surpassed Black Fire, making his still present fear a bit confusing. psychological stuff like that can stick around despite the problem being solved.
>>4662956>Turles at max has officially surpassed Black Fire, making his still present fear a bit confusing.Not married, are ya?
>>4662956Turle just enjoys getting abused by women, Don't knock him for it.
>>4663232He really doesn't have that kink.>>4662956Blackfire is like an Angry Meloka, instead of being a waifu, she goes straight to the chains and fists. Just because he's strong doesn't mean she stops.
>>4662946Not that time, he went by himself. Which is why they tried it.>>4662956They’re around Sorbet’s rank, and in charge of their own small force.She’s gotten pretty strong on her own.He may be physically stronger. But while he’s been training to hold onto his Super Saiyan form, he can’t always. Plus I haven’t edited her numbers, although they aren’t THAT much higher.Kids are strong.>>4662965They made their own interests to explore.>>4662970He’s still training, with someone’s help.>>4662974Fear is greater than physical might>>4662977This anon clearly knows.>>4663294>Just because he's strong doesn't mean she stops.Another fair point
>>4663935>Not that time, he went by himself. Which is why they tried it.Oh that time, well yeah, its a Saiyan R&D department, of course anyone in the airspace is free gain. Karn should know better.>They made their own interests to explore.And I for one can't wait to find out about they're hobbies....which is sad for how little time we've had to spend with them.Still, in between helping our kids, we can help Turles not fall behind on his wife guard training.
>TFW love the saiyan scientists in this quest because their basically space pirates from metroid but less obsessed with tubes
>>4664805I'd love to hang out with the Scientists more to be honest. Their technical innovations are fucking awesome and our input as a veteran combatant would be invaluable to them.The only downside to their tech however is that it's pretty much worthless to most Saiyan soldiers right.If they can work out stuff that's effective against threats comparable to our adjusted powerlevels, then you might see more Saiyans running around with this stuff.
>>4663958True. But that changes now, as you’ll now have much more time to be with each and every one of them as they wish.>>4664805>>4664906They’ll try anything, as is their directive. The scientists are PTO employed, not necessarily crown employed. So their inventions are from the angle of what could help the entire PTO, and not necessarily the Saiyans. Which to be fair aren’t very needy at the moment. In the words of a wise, old big guy, “What is a dog, with no hares to hunt?” That’ll be a question that needs an answer eventually
>>4665414>“What is a dog, with no hares to hunt?” That’ll be a question that needs an answer eventuallyI'd love to hang out with Gough desu, seems like he'd enjoy the company of a fellow veteran.That's assuming he's even alive in this timeline however...
>>4666281Not at this point. He would’ve died long ago, long before the M’lurnian people founded their city, or awoke the sleeping terror
>>4666980I'm fucking ready to draw Future Chaya, bring it on.Check your gmail btw.
>>4662845>And that’s it for this weekend, everyone enjoying the ride?Yes, lots of fun.>>4661805>“Hmph! Arrogant mortal. Thinking all that happens is because of you.” he says, eyes blazing crimson. “Soon you, and your entire pitiful race will be crushed beneath our boots. Then we demons shall rule-!”Is he announcing a Demon invasion? Who could be angry enough, battle hungry and crazy enough to attack Saiyan's home world and the PTO soon after their greatest victory know to Universe 7? Demons. >>4661979>“Look, I get it.” Leyas says, laying a hand on your shoulder. “You really care about your kids. But we’re still dealing with what that bastard did to us. Most days we can forget about it and act like everything’s normal, but not when someone starts talking about it. So just, don’t mention it again, okay?”I did not know that what happened to them back then still hurts. >>4662477>“Right now he’s helping test the newest suit design at ten times New Salda’s gravity.”New Salda's gravity = 2x Planet Vegeta's gravityVegeta's gravity = 10x Earth's gravitySo:>10 x New Salda's Gravity = 20x Planet Vegeta's gravity = 200x Earth's gravityIs this correct?>>4662843>Daiko simply stares at him for several moments, before digging around his pockets frantically until he finds a small device he holds up to his mouth.>“Next phase, layered armor. Repeat, layered multi metal armor. Cred Broly.Very nice.>>4662843>“Daiko, we’ve got a problem!” another female voice calls out frantically. “Project:Scyther has escaped it’s containment!” >“And if that thing escapes, it could kill half the people on this planet.”What kind of monster did they managed to make?Also what were Comfortably Numb skills?
I'm wondering how much can one get from intensely improving their Ki Energy control/mastery. Meloka already displays impressive things. Gotenks made sentient, orders following, talking capable, explosive Kamikaze Ghosts from Ki.Then there is this gif. Piccolo's "Clothes Beam". Is that 100% Ki energy technique? If yes then he seemingly managed to transform his Ki into solid permanent matter. Not just into soft clothes but he even made sword out of his Ki.
>>4668179Pretty sure that’s bona fide magic, not Ki control. Both Piccolo and Kami do a lil bit of magic.
>>4668217Ok. Thanks. It kinda looked Ki like, being all yellow like a Ki blast, so I was wanted to be sure.
>>4668177>Who could be angry enough, battle hungry and crazy enough to attack Saiyan's home world and the PTO soon after their greatest victory know to Universe 7?Practically speaking in this setting all you'd actually need to do to annihilate any interstellar empire is train a few assassins to have PL's around 500k and teach them techniques that destabilize planets' cores. Then they can just quietly go to any secluded part of a planet, blow the core Namek-style, then exfil within 5 Freeza-minutes before anyone has time to respond. Bonus points if they have intel on the locations of the empire's stronger fighters and attack when they're not around.
>>4668314Or you could just launch a planet cracker ki-blast from orbit. Even somebody like Karn would just write it off as somebody training if they were to sense it.
>>4668314Devilish plan. I don't know how exactly would this go on other planets, but when it comes to New Salda, we have Raven, and there are probably very few things/beings that can escape her notice, and before her there was Yoda here. To spot this kind of thing and prevent before it happens. Aren't these type of things one of the reasons that Guardians are also for? To prevent such things from going down. Remember when Kars was landing on New Salda? Yoda sensed that somebody dangerous was coming, and arrived to the location very soon (though Kars was not trying to hide then). Looking out for potential threats to the planet seems to be Guardian's job. Though Kami from Earth is too weak to deal with 500K assassin. New Salda has also her avatar and all that, don't know how common is that.
>>4668376Obviously if somebody wanted to use this tactic on New Salda, they'd do it while our attention was diverted. They'd also have multiple operatives doing the same shit across the planet if they knew what they were doing.However, they'd all still likely die afterwards since Berserk 3 Karn and Broly would sense them, but it would be acceptable losses after pulling off an operation like that.If you want to start a war with the PTO, killing the majority of Saiyans is where you start.
>>4668392I feel like an attack like that is actually a pretty bad way to start said war, though. Yeah, most of the Saiyans are dead now, but the rest are filled with an unbridled rage. And what causes super Saiyans to spring up everywhere? Unbridled rage.
>>4668461I'd still say it's worth it in the long run since it drastically reduces the PTO's ability to project force or retake planets that they lose.Honestly we should be brainstorming more ways to cripple our forces, helps us get into the mindset of people who actually want to dethrone us.
>>4667248I hope you guys are ready for this one. If it comes out how I’m hoping, we’re in for a treat.>>4668177Glad you enjoyed so farA bit of context here. Soon for demons =! soon for mortals. If you remember Dabura talking with Babidi, he’d “Just” checked the powerlevels of earth 300 years ago in the Buu saga.Leyas is trying to help in his way, and warn you. How many years ago in-quest was Demongo now? He’s saying Chilli’s in for a long struggle with that. He and Sarada were adult Saiyans, and had more than a decade of war to acclimate to the knowledge they would die one day. Meanwhile Chilli’s just a kid, a bright kid, but a kid nonetheless without that familiarity with death.Yes.Also yes. If you don’t have a personal recorder for good ideas, why not?And you’ll see this coming weekend! I’ll give you a small warning, Instant Transmission won’t help you here.Comfortably Numb’s mist is an insidiously dangerous stand. Besides the obvious obscuring, which even non-Stand users can see, it numbs those caught in it. At first you only become numb to your injuries, making you feel more relaxed. But as you stay in it the gas numbs your mind through direct skin contact, not through inhalation, until you’re simply slumped over on the ground and helpless against the Stand’s user. Who is completely unaffected by his own Stand. Imagine how easily such a Stand could have wiped even the Crusaders.>>4668179I will say Gotenks, besides being a Fusion and therefore insanely broken, also had the power of being a gag character.Clothes beam isn’t ki, that’s more Namekian magic. See ToP with that duo and what they could do.>>4668314First you’d have to teach them to hide their ki to avoid getting found out. Second, gathering the power to break a planet isn’t instantaneous at that level, and you can’t hide your energy while doing that.>>4668362Depends on the direction. Anything headed TOWARDS the planet, and we’ve seen time and again how he reacts to that.>>4668376It works easily against the weaker Guardians. But then you’re stepping on Freeza’s turf, and will have to answer to him for it.>>4668392With the sheer volume of those who can not only sense ki, but have the power to stop an attempt on New Salda, there’s little chance anyone could pull such a move off. But even if they did, between Raven, New Salda, and Karn, that trio could actually STOP something like that from happening. Either by Raven’d magical means of having Karn simply start absorbing the wild-running energy through the Champion link long enough for the other two to stabilize it.>>4668469>Honestly we should be brainstorming more ways to cripple our forces, helps us get into the mindset of people who actually want to dethrone us.Always a good thought exercise, and even on a micro level of just you/your family/Vegeta/Freeza.
QM UPDATENot gonna lie, having a hard time thinking up an intermission. At this point, sadly, I’m just going to have to bail on that idea. In the meantime I’ll still be around, to answer you guys questions and join the discussions. As of right now we’re set to resume this coming weekend, barring any unwelcome surprises.
>>4668785Time to start throwing ideas into GD's intermission pile.>A quick check on Boros: What the fuck did I just hear Freeza say on voxchannel edition>CYBER-KARN Timeline. Or ANDROID K412N. Fuck you, the 12 is supposed to look vaguely like an R.>A pants-shitting look at a timeline where Buu absorbs Karn. Or one of his many terrifyingly powerful friends.>Leyas and Sarada: Learning to cope.>What's cooler than being cool? Ice COLD: This title works perfectly fine as a segue into what King Cold is doing, and maybe Cooler too. I don't have to be creative all the time, alright?
>>4668785>>4668806Another idea. We haven't seen what Radditz has been doing in forever.
>>4668806Some of those are interesting.>>4668850>inb4 we just saw Chaya yesterday
>>4668469I imagine the best way would probably be to just reduce the saiyan's food and natural resources and also if possible and before that's, done lace several near undetectable non-ki bombs along large pto transport ships. It's be tough and your definitely getting Frieza'd but even he can't actually run back and forth between actually viable food sources possessing planets to New Salda in time once starvation begins to settle in. That said is countered by the fact we could probably IT to Golden Frieza and back despite not having mastered IT since his pl is massive so its 50/50.Alternatively Yardrat suicide runners would be a wonderful crippling force for any army, not just us
>>4669155>Ha ha we made it so the Saiyans don't get any food>Yo do those look like attack pods full of hungry saiyans coming to US to eat?Aw shit
>>4669169I'd imagined a plausible threat would be planetless refugees or others with grievances against the PTO and nothing to lose going terrorist and being trained up and organized into asymmetric warfare by some competent warlord.Thinking about it more you don't even need to destroy a planet to render it basically useless for years (the Covenant knew that well). You could run a geological survey looking for unstable sections of the mantle (like the Yellowstone caldera for an IRL example) and cause a mass-extinction event with minimal power-expense. Or, less-flashy but comparably effective, sabotage/destroy the resource-extraction sites and interstellar communication relays (if those are a thing, I forget) to squeeze resources and hinder rapid-response measures.Something like this could be a /qst/ in and of itself. Choosing between playing it safe by smashing comms then pillaging the fringes of the empire, or having infiltration squads hit key strategic points in high-risk/high-reqard ops, or going in search of allies or artifacts in the great unknown to level the playing field.>>4669155>Yardrat suicide runnersThose guys would be a nightmare yeah. And a lot of the time they'd be able to teleport out after the damage is done before moving on to the next target.
>>4668392Interesting approach. If things would happen this way (nearly all warriors including the strongest ones are far off the planet) and multiple assassins attempt to make their strike. I was thinking about one more way that Raven alone (as she is almost always here on New Salda) could perhaps try to stop it. If she could detect those hostiles then maybe with her psionic powers/magic she could try to assault their minds. Those killers may be good for a fight, but are they prepared for an psionic/magical onslaught that targets their minds?Maybe it would just stun them or put them under mind control, but either way they would not be in a condition to continue their mission.
>>4668479>A bit of context here. Soon for demons =! soon for mortals. If you remember Dabura talking with Babidi, he’d “Just” checked the powerlevels of earth 300 years ago in the Buu saga.Wow, they sure have different approach to time than us ningens.>Leyas is trying to help in his way, and warn you. How many years ago in-quest was Demongo now? It makes me feel bad we did not helped them more. >He’s saying Chilli’s in for a long struggle with that. It's scary what it may mean for Chilli. That one nice vacation at Megumin's home will not fix all of this. For Chilli to be troubled by this for years is really sad perspective, though maybe we will find some way to make things right. At least now Karn have time to do something else beside fighting against the Covenant. Pic related is perhaps Chilli in a few years from now if he will be left all alone with his problems. >Comfortably Numb’s >But as you stay in it the gas numbs your mind through direct skin contact, not through inhalation, until you’re simply slumped over on the ground and helpless against the Stand’s user. Who is completely unaffected by his own Stand.Yes, truly dangerous once you let yourself stay in the mist for too long. The user then comes with Covenant's Energy Blade and it's game over.>But even if they did, between Raven, New Salda, and Karn, that trio could actually STOP something like that from happening. Either by Raven’d magical means of having Karn simply start absorbing the wild-running energy through the Champion link long enough for the other two to stabilize it.Awesome.>And you’ll see this coming weekend! I’ll give you a small warning, Instant Transmission won’t help you here.I think I may guess what this means. We can't just Instant Transmission directly to it, because it masks its Ki completely. So we are going to have to do this the old school way. Searching the sealed off laboratory level with our eyes open, ears listening and senses on alert.The monster may attempt damaging the power supply on this floor to engulf place in darkness, though our auras can provide light.However it may even have some natural camouflage like chameleon to blend into the surroundings.Lastly it will be intelligent, so we better not underestimate this thing.>>4668806>CYBER-KARN Timeline. Or ANDROID K412N. Fuck you, the 12 is supposed to look vaguely like an R.Interesting. K4RN-DR01D?>A pants-shitting look at a timeline where Buu absorbs Karn. Or one of his many terrifyingly powerful friends.Like a horror movie.
>>4669155Yardrat saboteurs would be highly difficult to actually stop, depending on their range.>>4669624Hitting comms would be a small delay, considering the ranges PTO equipment works over. However, knocking out the central comms would slow communications down to a crawl across the entire universe. And Vox would be very displeased someone wrecked his things.>>4669750Raven is a very capable defender of New Salda, against small numbers of threats. Without the old Guardian’s self-limiting code, and her demonic heritage’s powers she’s far more dangerous.>>4669757They live a long time, unless they’re killed.And this may be even harder to hear, but Karn helped the twins more than most. Besides Nappa of course, the “big brother” figure of your group growing up. Trauma isn’t something that’s just whisked away, especially when it happens when you’re ELEVEN.Doesn’t help that the user can control where the mist goes, up to a certain range. >We can't just Instant Transmission directly to it, because it masks its Ki completely.That is the least of your problems with this monster
>>4669818>That is the least of your problems with this monsterCome on, it's just a Scyther. It can't be much more dangerous than a Xenomorph...right?
>>4669914Imagine what’s gonna fucking happen if our scientists ever combine one with a layered alloy ‘Metal Coat’ to make a Scizor...
>>4669914>XenomorphFunny you should mention that... Anyways.>>4670083Again, you have no idea what this thing can do. But Daiko believes that it can wipe out a huge swath of New Salda’s WARRIORS.
>>4669818>>4670242>inb4 its already evolved
>>4670288Question #1: the FUCK is that? Question #2: why would you have that monster saved?
>>46703051. Iz ultraman+xenomorph 2. Eet looks cool
>>4670305Man, if the scientists ever find a way to get these things under control, they’d make for amazing luxury training aides.
>>4670454Hopefully they work out the kinks, because if they could mass produce these things and keep em under control, that's just another great unit addition to the PTO as a whole.Although with this one in the lab, I think best case scenario is that we take its blades as trophies/weapons after neutralizing it.
Just over 24 hours before this episode continues! Hope you’re ready for a dangerous hunt!>>4670307But why>>4670454>controlUnfortunately they don’t have that. As for training, doubtful. They’re predators with killer instincts, and several are already dead.>>4670651They weren’t designed to be used WITH allied units. More of plant, sit back, and let them wreak havoc until they’re either put down or wiped out most the planet’s creatures themselves.
>>4670782>But why?Because who wouldn't want a 130 foot tall Xenomorph than can shoot lasers and do martial-arts?
>>4670782>They weren’t designed to be used WITH allied units.So kinda like OG saibamen right? On that note, how would saibamen even differentiate between friend and foe?
>>4670789People who like living?>>4670791They don’t. The design is, pod down, plant a few to a dozen, pod back into orbit and watch the chaos unfold
>>4670789>Because who wouldn't want a 130 foot tall Xenomorph than can shoot lasers and do martial-arts?>>4669914>>4670288Gotta Catch ’Em All!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J6ZdagXcQFA >>4670782>Hope you’re ready for a dangerous hunt!I'm wondering who is going to be the hunter and who the prey? Us or this thing.>As for training, doubtful. They’re predators with killer instincts, and several are already dead.People who tried to train them or the experimental creatures?>>4670242>>Xenomorph>Funny you should mention that... Anyways.So they did. They added Xeno's genome into the mix. That's so dangerous.>>4669818>And this may be even harder to hear, but Karn helped the twins more than most. Besides Nappa of course, the “big brother” figure of your group growing up.Nappa's awesome.
>>4671108What is Nappa up too these days?
>>4671111>I guess he is working on a daily basis with Vegeta, aiding him in dealing with his duties as King of Saiyans. Maybe we can visit them?
>>4671114>>4671115Maybe one of our kids wants to learn logistical stuff, that would be a good excuse.
>>4671116But which one of them has interest into this kind of things? If we can't tell off the top of our head, then Karn needs to spend more time with his kids to know them better. Chilli is smart and into magic, but would he interested in this sort of things? I don't know.
>>4671123We barely know all the twins we had, let alone all our kids we had stay here when the rest were on campaign. We got time to find out though.
>>4671116Also we don't need an excuse to visit them. Don't we? Vegeta and Nappa are our friends, so visiting them is a good thing. I'm curious how are their moods and plans for the future, now that the big enemy Covenant is in destroyed.>>4671124True.
>>4671126>Vegeta and Nappa are our friends, so visiting them is a good thing. I'm curious how are their moods and plans for the future, now that the big enemy Covenant is in destroyed.If I had the guess, Vegeta is probably training right now in between meetings, and Nappa is trying to force him to at least take a nap.
>>4671129Yes. Surpassing Karn is one of the most important things to Vegeta, and knowing him he is never slacking. >and Nappa is trying to force him to at least take a nap.Like you said, he may even go so hard it's difficult to tell if his gains are from training or him breaking his body through training and inducing a Zenkai.
>>4671136>Like you said, he may even go so hard it's difficult to tell if his gains are from training or him breaking his body through training and inducing a Zenkai.Ah yes, the typical state of all Vegeta's.
>>4671108That’ll be up to the parties involved.>That’s so dangerousLike EVERYTHING they make isn’t dangerous.Yes he is.>>4671111Maybe you should ask him?>>4671116>>4671123>>4671124You do have a lot more time to be with them. And I’m going to have to turn my scattered character notes on likes/dislikes into proper searchable pages>>4671126Probably best to at least call ahead. Never know what they’re into.>>4671129Genuinely startled at how accurate this is. Anon knows and understands characters>>4671136>>4671141King Vegeta doesn’t slack off. Unlike most more ‘canon’ versions of himself, your Vegeta has had responsibilities. He’s worked hard, and has pride in himself and not just his race because of the stories told to him when little. Paradoxically he’s now more humble, AND more prideful
>>4671180>And I’m going to have to turn my scattered character notes on likes/dislikes into proper searchable pagesThe best problem>Genuinely startled at how accurate this is. Anon knows and understands charactersI do my best.>He’s worked hard, and has pride in himself and not just his race because of the stories told to him when little. Paradoxically he’s now more humble, AND more pridefulUnlike all other inferior Vegeta's nursing a grudge to a literal brain damaged monkey. Our Vegeta is best Vegeta.
If cell’s cells allow him to retake any form or power his cells have ever tasted if he gets nearly vaporized, no matter what form hes in when it happens or how weakened he is...Could uncle cell return as a permanent Golden Cell if he was almost killed? Or permanently Supervillain?
>>4671558If it did I imagine it would be like a transformed potara ring scenario where he'll just constantly feel the energy drain unless he can work something out
>>4671622I'd feel more confident to weigh in on this if I knew how Golden actually worked.>>4671180GD, how the fuck does Golden actually work?
>>4671622>twin Infinite energy enginesHmmmmmmmmmmmm
>>4671558>Could uncle cell return as a permanent Golden Cell if he was almost killed?Considering Cells insane biology, I could see him being able to turn Golden into his permanent form.>Or permanently Supervillain?I’m not so sure about this though, isn’t Supervillain a magic based transformation? I think it may depend on if Cell can perform magic.
>>4671664He has Namekian cells, and a soul, and a genius intellect, right? Don’t see why he wouldn’t be able to, if he bothered learning.
>>4671764>Don’t see why he wouldn’t be able to, if he bothered learning.I was about to say that it depends on which Namekian he got his DNA from, but then I remembered it was Piccolo/Kami.This man definitely has magical potential. Hell, he could probably make his own dragon balls.
>>4671193>our Vegeta is best VegetaAgreed>>4671558That’s not how that works. His body, with all that newfound zenkai boost power was able to rebuild him in his Perfect form. However, that only goes for his absorption line, and not any extra transformation past that. And the only reason he could do that is because the zenkai was the biggest he’d ever had.>>4671632>How does Golden work?The same way a lot of other transformations work, boosted power for limited time. However, Cell’s mastery over the form is only around Res F Freeza’s level, so he can’t hold it very long yet. >>4671660No, he only has one. Since 18 got spat back up. Also, infinite energy doesn’t mean limitless energy, it’s output is only around Super Namek Piccolo/17’s level.>>4671664He could do so with Golden, with a whole lot of work and effort. But that’s not the case with Supervillain. Remember, it’s not just a power boost but one fueled by demonic ki. And unless you’re a halfbreed or in very specific circumstances(see Leyas/Sarada) mortals cannot generate that type of ki. It isn’t something one can just pick up like divine ki.>>4671870He doesn’t have Kami’s cells actually. Which is an important point, as Piccolo is a warrior Namekian while Kami is a Dragon clan. Only Dragon clan Namekians can make Dragonballs.
>>4671899>Only Dragon clan Namekians can make DragonballsOkay so Dragon Balls are out the window, but what about petty magic like the clothes beam?
>>4671180>Like EVERYTHING they make isn’t dangerous.True.>>4671180>Probably best to at least call ahead. Never know what they’re into.Okay.>>4671193>Our Vegeta is best Vegeta.That's great, I agree. I wonder if Xeno Vegeta has recently looked at our Timeline's scroll. I think he would find the life of his other self interesting.>>4671899>He doesn’t have Kami’s cells actually. Which is an important point, as Piccolo is a warrior Namekian while Kami is a Dragon clan. Only Dragon clan Namekians can make Dragonballs.If Kami dies the Dragon Balls stop working. This leads to some questions:>So if Buu absorbed Kami would they remain functional?>If Cell absorbed Kami would they remain functional?I'm asking twice because Buu seems more magical than Cell and therefore I assume their absorption works differently.> If Cell or Buu absorbed/ate a member of the Namekian Dragon Clan would they be able to make their own Dragon Balls then?
>>4671899He has both, as his body recreated the second one necessary for his transformation.
SOON>>4671900Perhaps>>4671931Xeno Vegeta hasn’t, as the Time Patrol’ve been busy.When Cell drinks someone they die, but being absorbed by Buu doesn’t necessarily kill you. Like for Gohan, Gotenks, Piccolo, or Fat Buu that Buu draws power from, when he’s using you for power he does keep them alive.>>4671937I actually need to double check on that, as Cell is one of my weaker characters lore-wise. But when Cell nearly died 17 was killed, so it wouldn’t surprise me if his body simply rebuilt them.
>>4662843“Meloka.” you say, your wife already on the move. Energy beams out from her on all sides, dozens and dozens of fist-sized ki balls shooting out from her. Within a few seconds at least a hundred of her miniature ki mines, the awarding Eyes, have filled the room. As she does this you turn back to Daiko. You need answers. “Alright Daiko, I need answers. What exactly is this Scyther project your people have been cooking up?”“I only know what I’ve seen, and what the bioengineering guys have told me.” Daiko begins, nervously glancing around as if anything could possibly sneak through Meloka’s field of death unannounced. “The regular Saibamen, no offense B7, have over the years become less and less relevant. So they’ve been working on modifying them, altering their genetic makeups to create more advanced and deadly disposable soldiers.”“None taken.” B7 replies, still laying on his back with the younger twins still right over him, curiously looking at and poking him.“And so Project:Scyther was born.” Daiko continues. “The base strain was modified to no longer have hands, but instead razor sharp swords for arms and wings for faster and easier flying on planets with atmosphere.”“Swords and wings? That’s it?” Meloka asks, Daiko’s brows furrowing a moment in annoyance at being interrupted. “Sounds easy enough.”“That is if you can find it.” he replies. “After extensive research into their stealth tech, we have been able to modify Project:Scyther’s hard exoskeleton to mimic the stealth suits the Covenant use. And if that isn’t bad enough, we have no idea what it’s maximum potential is.”“Wait. You made the thing, and don’t know how strong it is?” you ask him, incredulous. “How?”“Somehow, this monster hides it’s energy signature near-completely until the moment it attacks.” Daiko tells you. “Even our scanners reveal it only has a resting powerlevel of five, but can’t process the sudden surge of power when it attacks fast enough to ever get a solid reading.”“You made an undetectable, unseeable monster down here, and didn’t think to warn anyone?!” Meloka shouts, clearly angry now from the expression on her face and how she gets right up in Daiko’s. “What the hell are you morons thinking?!”“The entire facility locks down in cases of crisis, we’ve already drilled for it.” he says weakly in his own defense, seeming to melt under Meloka’s blazing glare. As we’re speaking, the elevator is locked and returning to the surface. With the way it’s designed, once up top the entire underground facility is sealed off tighter than Vox’s grip on his money. However, there is one problem with this design: we’re all trapped down here with it.”cont
>>4672052“That would be a problem, if we hadn’t nicked Cooler’s technique.” you say, meaning yourself as well as your wife too. Mentioning his bet to King Cold was one of your best decisions ever, as this technique is one of the most useful you know. “Now, how far down is this thing?”“We’re actually two levels below the bio labs right now.” he replies. “But unless you break the seals seperating the different levels, giving it a chance to escape and cause more havoc, we can’t do anything.”“Maybe you can’t do anything.” you reply, placing the first two fingers on your right hand to your forehead. “But I can. Mel, you coming too or staying here for now?”“I’m staying with the kids, at least until you find that thing.” Meloka replies, her tone making it clear she isn’t leaving for anyone. You nod to her once, then close your eyes and focus on your ki sense.At first you can’t sense anything, besides your wife and her web of power woven throughout this room. But as you frame it out, you begin getting a much clearer picture of the situation up above. On the floor directly above you the dozen or so people are scattered, each seemingly hiding and not moving around much at all. But from above them, at first you sense almost no one. But as you expand your range, what feels nearly double the distance between yourself and the closest powerlevels above you are more of the scientists. However they aren’t standing still, instead all of them are seemingly fleeing in one direction. Then one of the signals you sense abruptly vanishes, a life snuffed out. There’s your escaped monster.“Got you.” you mutter, and vanish. One instant you’re standing in the middle of Meloka’s deahtrap, the next you appear in a dark room, several people screaming behind you. But you pay them no mind, focused instead on the monster before you. It stands about as tall as your wife, the dual blades of it’s forearms dripping with the blood of the Saiyan dead at it’s feet. But you don’t see much more than that because as you appear suddenly, it splits into five seperate beings that form a half-circle around you! “What the-?!”You have only a split second to act, what do you do?>Transform into your Ascended Berserker form immediately, don’t take any chances with this thing>Take on your Champion form, perhaps New Salda can track this thing’s energy and give you the edge>Explosive Wave immediately, blast them all back from you and keep from getting jumped>Death Slash through them all, try and end this right now!>Other(write in)
>>4672053>Transform into your Ascended Berserker form immediately, don’t take any chances with this thingTwo can play at the eternal buff game
>>4672052>“You made an undetectable, unseeable monster down here, and didn’t think to warn anyone?!” Meloka shouts, clearly angry now from the expression on her face and how she gets right up in Daiko’s. “What the hell are you morons thinking?!”Ooooh yeah, this is Meloka's first time with Mad Science(tm) on her side, she's used to the high bar Nefarious set with everything being perfectly planned and purposeful. Oh the sights of negligent stupidity you shall now witness.>>4672053>But you don’t see much more than that because as you appear suddenly, it splits into five seperate beings that form a half-circle around you! “What the-?!”Fuck you for giving it Double Team, that move was banned!>Transform into your Ascended Berserker form immediately, don’t take any chances with this thing
>>4672062>Oh the sights of negligent stupidity you shall now witnessI'm sure Dr. Nefarious had his fair share of fuck-ups before he managed to get things right.I can only imagine how many Karn clones broke out of containment and started wreaking havoc.
>>4672065That's doesn't count, because we didn't see the fuck ups, and the bastard was a paranoid fuck that likely let clones out to psych test they're behavior patterns like that shitty Resident Evil Movie with the Super Perfect OC girl.
>>4672053>>Transform into your Ascended Berserker form immediately, don’t take any chances with this thing

>saiyan scientists turned saibamen into a pokemonNappa is going to be so excited
>>4672136Sadly no, we don't have Pokeballs.
>>4672133While that's not a bad take, I think for now we have to consider what it most likely knows naturally before we begin thinking about all the bullshit they loaded into it.Off the top of my head, it likely knows>Double Team (duh)>Fury Cutter>Laser Focus>Swords Dance>Toxic>ExplosionThose last two are taking into account its origins as a modified Saibaman.
>>4672139Abridged Nappa would be excited, but he isn't in this universe, and thus can't break the Fourthwall with great joy.
>>4672141But we do have a backhand to rival the god of pimps, so I'm sure we could discipline this thing if we cared to.
>>4672144If we turn it into our pet, how are we going to name it?
>>4672165Let the kids do it?
>>4672170Interesting name. I can't come up with anything that is not too common and plain right now. >>4672172Good suggestion too.
>>4672136>>4672144Though realistically speaking this monster seems too dangerous to be a pet. It's killer instinct seems so strong.
>>4672053“HRRRYAAAAAAAA!!!” you roar, ki exploding out from you as you transform. Your body expands, muscles and bones growing explosively to withstand the massive surge of power. The sudden transformation into your Ascended Berserker form blasts a shockwave from your body, you hearing the startled shouts of the other Saiyans as they’re knocked around. But you don’t take your focus off the five still creatures, and to your surprise the shockwave doesn’t knock any of them back! Instead they all begin wavering, and you realize you’ve been had! “Tch! Afterimages.”The five illusions finish vanishing, and leave no trace of that creature behind. But as the other Saiyans all begin to realize who you are, they all rush to you.“It’s Karn!”“He’s here to save us!”“But how? When?”“Get me the fuck out of here!”“Help us, please!”“He killed it!”“Everyone quiet down. It’s still here.” you say to them, your words silencing everyone at once. “Now, which of you all worked on that thing? I need to know everything it can do if I’m gonna take this thing down.”“I-I was a part of the design team.” a young woman says timidly, partially raising a hand. She actually flinches as you turn towards her, looking like she’d like nothing more than to run away and hide again. But she manages to start talking, speaking so fast her words almost blend together. “Cutter’s a fast one, she can out-speed even B7 when he’s transformed. Her organic blades are sharp enough that they can cut right through even warship armor.”“Wait now hold on, Cutter?” you ask, confused. “How many escaped mad science projects do you guys have running around right now? I thought I was fighting a Project:Scyther.”“Oh y-y-yes, of course.” she says, looking admonished. “But I kinda wanted to give her a better name than it’s paperwork, and Cutter really fits-““Now’s not the time, Pina.” an older man walks over, laying a hand on her shoulder then addressing you. “You’re correct, that’s the one that escaped. Pina here’s just a tad more sentimental than the rest of us.”“So is that all it can do?” you ask her seriously, everyone having crowded around you a bit too close for your comfort. “Move fast, create after images of itself, and cut things with it’s blades?”“N-Not quite.” she answers. “Since it’s based off of both Saibamen and Hive genetics, it has a far more potent acid spray it can spit from it’s mouth, and it’s blood is the same sort of acid as well. Of course, it can also self-destruct. Or, at least we think it can. We hadn’t gotten to that stage of testing before it escaped containment. So, if it can blow up, we don’t quite know how big the blast will be.”cont
>>4672142>ToxicNow that one would be bad news, if Android-saga Goku and Frost are any indication.
>>4672200“Well, that’s comforting.” you mutter, then shake your head. “Thanks. I’ll handle it from-““Wait, that’s not it!” she shouts suddenly, startling you. “I’m the only one who saw it, but it can turn invisible too!”“That’s enough Pina.” that stern older scientist tells her. “The General has enough to worry about without you making up nonsense for him to worry about.”“But I saw it!” she argues, and for the first time you hear a bit of heat in her voice. “And if you were watching her half as good as you’re supposed to, then she never would have escaped!”“Why you-!” he snarls, you clearing your throat loud enough for them both to hear you.“Keep your voices down.” you tell them. “This thing’s still here. But I’ll handle this creature from here.”“But what about us?” someone else shouts. “You can’t just leave us in here with that monster!”“Yeah, get us outta here!” another shouts panickedly. “I don’t wanna die!”What do you do?>Have Meloka come and Instant Transmission them into the greater safety of the training room her traps are in, while you hunt for this creature>Instant Transmission them all to the training room with Meloka, then focus your ki sense on finding it’s next kill to re-engage it>Have them lead you all to a solid corner, where you can hopefully protect them all from another surprise attack>Other(write in)

>>4672210No, your weapons are on your ship.
If this thing has blades that can cut through even warship armor, then I'm wondering if it can cut through what is sealing off this floor.
>>4672220So I'm guessing it can, but Scientist aren't sure since they can't even measure how strong it really is. Maybe best option to avoid casualties among the personnel of this facility is to keep "Cutters" attention on Karn. Otherwise it may breach into other levels looking for more prey and slaughter people there.
>>4672203>Instant Transmission them all to the training room with Meloka, then focus your ki sense on finding it’s next kill to re-engage itMeloka's the only major threat off this floor, we move her and that things free to escape below our hurt the kids.

>>4672203>>Instant Transmission them all to the training room with Meloka, then focus your ki sense on finding it’s next kill to re-engage itFuck it, I'll break the tie
>>4672241I see. I was thinking about it cutting through the doors of the elevator and climbing/flying through the elevator shaft to another level. If it can cut warship armor, than those doors may be not enough. The distance does not matter if all floors are still connected by the elevator.
>>4672203>Have them lead you all to a solid corner, where you can hopefully protect them all from another surprise attackHow do we know it won't tag along on an IT? It's invisible and nearly undetectable.
>>4672256It shouldn't know the layout of the facility though, so the best thing to probably is use ki to meld the doors/elevators and then go off on our own and rely on our instinct to hunt this thing

>>4672314>Extra bonus here will be important.>>4672314>>4672307Maybe this extra bonus will help save save more lives.
>>4672203“Everyone, grab on to each other.” you order, raising your right hand back to your forehead. “I can only use Instant Transmission to take us all out of here if everyone’s touching.”They comply, everyone closing in even closer to you as you focus on Meloka’s towering ki. With her energy being second here only to your own makes it easy, and with a thought teleport back into the training room. One moment you’re in the dark, the next you’re standing with the crowd beside your wife and family, who all start at your arrival.“Karn? Did you take it down already?” Daiko asks, voice equal parts hopeful and disappointed. “Was Project:Scyther really that little of a challenge?”“No, it’s still up there somewhere.” you say, everyone letting go and talking to themselves, Meloka, or your kids. Your wife let’s put a disgruntled sigh, having to rearrange her mines while explaining they detonate on touch to the morons trying to touch her energy. “But I couldn’t protect them all and fight something that fast. I can make afterimages as well, but it made five of them near-instantly. If I’m not careful, that pet monster of yours is gonna do some real damage when I go back.”And speaking of going back you again close your eyes, focusing all of your mind on your ki sense. It takes several seconds to block out Meloka’s and your own towering ki signatures, but once you do the other signals become much more clear. The ones on the floor immediately above you haven’t moved, still hiding no doubt. But above them is much more empty space, at least two floor’s worth between the ki above you, and those above them. From the next floor are only half a dozen signatures, split into two groups of three. One group is on the move, headed further away from the second group instead of moving towards them. Then you feel it, one of the fleeing signatures suddenly drop, power dipping significantly.“Got you now.” you mutter, and once more disappear. This time as your Instant Transmission carries you to another location within the lab, the first thing you notice is the lights are on. The next is that your Instant Transmission brought you here right in the path of a descending, bloody scythe arm. You have only an instant to react, and moving too slow or indecisively will mean you get slashed. What do you do?>Explosive Wave immediately, knock it back away from you and the downed scientist>Unmovable Energy Body, tank that attack with your absolute greatest defense >Try catching it’s arm below the scythe, and keep it from slashing you>Use your Su Ma and dodge, spin out of the way and counterattack>Other(write in)This vote is for the 91 you rolled on the last roll
>>4672412>Try catching it’s arm below the scythe, and keep it from slashing youSu-Ma grappling I see. Another school of techniques we haven't used in a while.
>>4672412>Unmovable Energy Body, tank that attack with your absolute greatest defense
>>4672412>>Unmovable Energy Body, tank that attack with your absolute greatest defense
>>4672420Voting this instead, we need to disable this thing, and this is a good chance to keep it from running again
>>4672435>reads the sentence "moving too slow or *indecisively* will mean you get slashed">still changes his votethis is why you'd die in this universe, anon
>>4672450I'm a dumbass who didn't read the spoiler first anon, that's what really sold the change vote to me
>>4672454Your crimes cannot be forgiven. Especially with how you changed AND MADE A FUCKING TIE
>>4672412>Unmovable Energy Body, tank that attack with your absolute greatest defenseI'm voting this, because if we catch it's 2 arms, it may still slash at us with the claws at his legs, so maybe those scythes will break when hitting something so hard. We can then counter attack from this point.
>>4672412>This vote is for the 91 you rolled on the last rollNear the edge situation. I'm also glad there is only one injured right now, maybe we even manage to save the scientist who just got slashed, but I think he is still holding on to life.>>4672463LOL
Honestly either of these options is are just as viable in terms of saving our skin. I'm just trying to make sure it doesn't kill another scientist (like the one it was clearly trying to slash before we came in) while we're disengaging our Energy Body.
>>4672468Right now we got a chance, explosive wave from an Ascended Berserker would probably vaporized the scientists.
>>4672468Yeah, I just worry it'll get the chance to run again and go back to killing if we go unmovable
>>4672476I said either of these options referring to energy body and grappling. Explosive Wave is a fool's errand when there's friendly civilians in a confined area.

What will it be?
>>4672524it might be a saving roll in case we failed the roll before it.
>>4672532>it might be a saving roll in case we failed the roll before it.Wait we get saving rolls? That's a mechanic in this quest?
>>4672561Not quite saving rolls, but sometimes when we pass certain DCs, we don't have to worry about failing others
>>4672564Wuh...what? So you're saying I shouldn't be shitting my pants if we roll under 50 if we can get a 75+ somewhere?
>>4672532Possibly. By the way with how much we use Instant Transmission, once the big vote will come I think I be supporting mastering it completely. It's so useful. Once mastered we can do something like:>Charge Final Flash>They are preparing to dodge it/ tank it/ or something>The moment we fire it we Instant Transmission right behind them and hit them point blank
>>4672577>I think I be supportingI think I will be supporting>I missed a word here.Also I meant instant transmission with that final flash charged without the use of a fingers to the forehead gesture.
>>4672572nah, it seems like usually each dice is for separate moments/events in a post, but I kinda remember some rolls where the second dice just determined how hard we got hurt if we failed the first. I might be wrong though.
>>4672584furthering spirit control likely confers benefits to IT since IT is just an offshoot resulting from that training style.
>>4672577The Instant Transmission Final Flash would be pretty good, but after a certain skill-level people are gonna be able to react accordingly or just outright see through what we're doing.That said, mastery of Instant Transmission would still be beneficial so long as we don't become overly reliant on it or keep using it in the same manner forever. We gotta be creative and selective about its usage if we want to get the most out of it.
>>4672602You mean ki control? Cause if so, fraid not, GD confirmed direct ki training is what's needed to best advance ki moves
>>4672602>spirit controlFrom wiki (https://dragonball.fandom.com/wiki/Spirit_Control):> "Spirit Control (...) is an advanced Ki manipulation technique known primarily to the Yardrat race.>allows its user to achieve a multitude of potent abilities through their ki,>including Instant Transmission (a basic ability), >Cloning,>Gigantification,>Healing (an advanced ability)> and Forced Spirit Fission (an extremely advanced ability). Looks interesting, but it requires advanced Ki Energy control/mastery to get started. So we need to improve it like Meloka does. Otherwise no chance with this. She may develop it later on her own if she keeps improving, we could decide to improve in this area too.>>4672605I agree with your post.
>>4672638>Cloning,Get Meloka on this shit ASAP. We’re gonna have a harem of Melokas.
>>4672638Oh that, yeah forgot about the Super thing. If we can also improvise our own moves that may be worth looking into, but I feel Meloka and Chilli are better fit for that type of thing.
>>4672646Multiple Melokas are force to be reckoned with.
>>4672657We can do it too if we decide to go that path.
>>4672646Impossible if Meloka isn't using the multiform technique, they will proceed to fight for top wife position, likely with lethal force.
>>4672638We already started. Wouldn’t have IT if we didn’t
>>4672412“HRRAAAAA!” you shout, clenching your fists and focusing your power. This is risky, if his blades are sharp enough and this creature has the power, your technique may not be enough to save you. But you don’t have time for doubts, focusing your aura flared up around you and pull it towards yourself. Your ki spikes as you pour more and more energy into your aura, hardening it around you like a suit of armor. The creature’s blade swings at you, but your Unmovable Energy Body is ready. The metallic-seeming right arm blade strikes your chest, but bounces off with a shower of ephemeral sparks. This seems to startle the creature, but it doesn’t immediately back down.“Ssssscy!” it hisses, spraying you with what you assume to be it’s acid spit. Which is confirmed as it begins sizzling against your armor, then a second later there’s an ear-piercing scream from below you. Whoever you appeared over must have been hit by a stray drop or two, screaming in agony as the others pull him back away from you. But fortunately for you the creature seems to have lost all interest in the others, entire body tensed up and ready to spring at you. Which it does, moving so fast so unexpectedly you’re sure it would have gutted you. If you weren’t still coated in your ki armor, which is fortunately seemingly unaffected by the acid as the creature goes back on the attack. “SSSSCYYYY!!”“This creature really is a monster.” you think to yourself as it swings more than a dozen times a second. And what’s worse is this creature isn’t simply swinging randomly either. A blade to the right side of your neck then the left under your arm towards the shoulder, another right to the left ankle followed by a left to your right knee. Each blow it fires off is meant to either cripple or outright kill you, no wild strikes simply for the sake of swinging. Each and every attack is a precise, almost surgical strike meant to end you. Yet after more than a hundred strikes it tries backing off, once more dropping a slew of afterimages. But this time, in the light you can see it try and flee.“Oh no you don’t!” you snarl, ending the technique and leaping after the bug-like monster. You see it heading for an unevenly-cut, triangular hole in the ground and realize how it’s been getting around. But you’re not letting it escape you this time! “HAAAAA!!”Roaring in challenge you fire a beam of emerald energy, but the creature starts flying back and forth erratically and narrowly dodges your attack. If you don’t hit it now, it could escape! So in a last-ditch effort you again gather your ki, and instead of a beam fire off a Scattershot!cont
>>4672684But it wasn’t enough. Between the dozens of balls of emerald ki, somehow “Cutter” as that one’d named this creature dodges between your blasts and slips down into the hole. You rush right up to it, and are greeted with darkness. Only a faint light from this floor goes down into the hole, after three or four feet all you can see is darkness. But now you have a real problem on your hands.What do you do now?>Rush down there after it now while it’s running away, using your aura for light to try and see it to get another shot>Back off, go back to the three you’d just teleported to and get them away to safety>Fire off another Scattershot after it, and if you see it dash down after it>You know which way it went, try again to get any sort of lock on it’s ki signature>Other(write in)

>>4672688Closing your eyes as the beat of the creature’s wings fades off into the darkness, you power out of your Ascended Berserker form down to a ‘regular’ Berserker. Controlling this combination is hard enough, but you haven’t even tried from Ascended. And in a situation like this, it’s best not to experiment.“New Salda, I need you.” you think, opening your connection to your planet. As you do power surges throughout your body, nearly returning you to your Ascended form’s power. But more important than that, as you become linked with your home, your awareness expands exponentially. With a thought, the limits on your ki sense vanish, and you can sense everything. Every single living being now appears to your senses, from the giant Oozaru above ground stomping around to each individual blade of grass. Including the winged abomination flying away from you deeper underground.“You wish to exterminate that creature than should not be, yes?” the planet’s thoughts boom into your mind. “Then I shall lend you my aid, my champion. Rid me of that abomination, that affront to nature.”“Thanks, now let’s do this.” you reply, focusing in on the suppressed energy of the creature. You gather your ki into twin points in your eyes, and unleash it with a “HAAAAAAAA!!”Down into the darkness your beams go, glowing defiantly in the shadows below. But as you feel your attack closing in, suddenly the creature changes directions. But trying to evade will bring it no safety, you’re locked on now!“Nice try.” you mutter, as your Guided Eye Beams change direction as well. A second later you feel your beams hit, both piercing through the creature.“SSSCYYYY!!” it howls, fury and pain mixing into it’s screech. But you’re not done yet, again redirecting the beams back towards the creature. It’s clear to you that it doesn’t see them coming back, your beams again finding their mark as it screeches again. But as you redirect your beams again, it’s faint energy signature suddenly splits! Instead of one creature you sense five, choosing a target closest to where it was when splitting and piercing through it with your beams. But a second after you do that signature ends, along with three others as the last retreats deeper down.“Dammit.” you mutter, ending the attack. Now that it knows what your beams can do, it won’t be as effective now. But you did injure it, and although you don’t know the extent of the damage, no doubt you made it afraid.But what now?>Try and Instant Transmission right behind it now, and attack the creature before it even realizes you’re there>Keep tracking it but stay here, wait for when it stops then teleport to it for the kill>Rush down after it, now that your sight isn’t an issue in tracking it down>Other(write in)

>>4672950I vaguely remember us containing an explosion or similar outburst of energy in a Barrier in the past, but I'm not 100% on that.
>>4672952This is a tough situation indeed. I think Su Ma grappling may genuinely be the go to, it's clear the thing is already trying to run away from us cause it knows it's outclassed, and once we show we can get to it at any time I think we'll need to kill it quick.

>>4673006Those two doing those synchronized attacks while wielding razor sharp blades. Not something enemy would want to face. >>4673008>You mean the Wolf Knight's Greatsword? I'm confident that anything non-magical is just gonna bounce off of it or be destroyed in turn.Thanks. Good to know.
>>4673012Yeah they got Twin Blades to be walking Beyblades.
>not just handing scyther's severed arms to B7 along with some duct tapecmon, guys...
>>4673021>not just handing scyther's severed arms to B7 along with some duct tapeFirst off, if we even had duct tape available the war with the Covenant wouldn't have lasted half as long as it did.Second, B7 probably wants nothing to do with the bastard that just iced his acquaintances.
>>4673021lol>>4673012Oh, then sure I guess, though we'll have to get an Ok from Meloka first, and probably figure out a way to get proper ends for the swords... Don't suppose New Salda thinks she can do intricate work as well maybe to create a handle?
>>4673039It just so happens that we're in a research facility known for developing infantry weapons.Failing that, we could always go to our personal armorer. He did good work on our scabbard for the Wolf Knight Sword, so he must have some knowledge of how to customize weapons like this.And even failing that, Bane would definitely know how to make a handle fit for a proper weapon.
>>4673053True, but I'm betting big money on New Salda being able to work some magic through the blades. Maybe make them a conduit for ki
>>4673057I would agree if New Salda didn't explicitly refer to the creature as "[...]that abomination, that affront to nature."I'm sure the most she would do if we left it up to her is chuck it into outer space via volcanic eruption.
I’ll say this, you cannot take them as a weapon. Well I mean you can, but they’re organic and won’t last very long.
>>4673076RIP, oh well
>>4673076Understandable. Guess we're gonna have to think of another gift idea.
>>4672903“You’re not getting away that easily.” you say, bringing your right hand back to your forehead.“I’ll block out all the other signals for you, my champion.” New Salda’s thoughts boom in your mind. And then there’s nothing, only yourself and that creature appearing in your ki sense. “Does this help?”“Of course, thanks.” you reply telepathically, focusing on the creature’s movements. It’s clearly fleeing, but every three or so seconds the creature suddenly changes direction. No doubt trying to avoid a repeat performance of what just happened to it. This creature is learning. You feel it come to a stop, and that’s the moment you strike. Once again you use your Instant Transmission, teleporting right behind the creature as it tries cutting through another wall. And from the two heated slash marks you already see, Project:Scyther is only a single strike from escaping somewhere else. So as you appear, with your left hand you grab it’s upper left arm, keeping it from swinging.“Scy-?” it exhales, turning around confused, but it never sees you coming. With your right hand you chop, mirroring it’s own opening blow, and strike with the ridge of your hand on it’s neck. Hardened exoskeleton crunches, your backhanded chop slicing clean through the monster’s neck. The creature’s head goes spinning, acidic blood spraying from it in every direction as it falls. Meanwhile the neck is doing the same, acidic blood pumping up and out in dangerous squirts. So you let go of it’s arm and take a quick pair of steps back, avoiding the acid sprays. It’s body remains standing for several seconds, before it suddenly just slumps over, collapsing in a heap. You feel the creature’s suppressed ki vanish entirely, and the steady pumping of blood out of the body is replaced by a steady slow flow. It’s over. Or is it?“Daiko, it’s Karn.” you think to him, suddenly very, very worried as you watch the creature. “I killed it, but I have to know: is this the only one? There aren’t multiple of these things down here, are there?”“No. Unless someone’s been doing unauthorized work and somehow wasn’t discovered, there is only one of them.” he tells you, which somehow doesn’t ease your nerves. “I’ll go ahead and end the lockdown, and have the clean up crew head towards your location. You wouldn’t mind staying there long enough for B7 to lead them to you, would you? That acid could cause a lot of damage if we let it sit around untreated.Well?>Of course you’ll wait, you’re in no hurry to go anywhere. And the way he said that hadn’t put you at ease>Leave a ball of ki here for B7 to lock on to, but return to your family. You’re ready to get out of here
>>4673123>Of course you’ll wait, you’re in no hurry to go anywhere. And the way he said that hadn’t put you at easeThe fuck is going down now?
>>4673123>Of course you’ll wait, you’re in no hurry to go anywhere. And the way he said that hadn’t put you at easeWell we're not getting any alarm bells ringing, and Salda didn't point out any other abominations, so I think we're good, but might as well stay tp be polite
>>4673123>>Of course you’ll wait, you’re in no hurry to go anywhere. And the way he said that hadn’t put you at ease
>>4673128>>4673145>>4673162>>4673167Of course you’ll wait, you’re in no hurry to go anywhere. And the way he said that hadn’t put you at ease wins it. Interesting choice, roll me a single d100 then.
Rolled 64 (1d100)>>4673181ah, good ol' ominous dice roll
Rolled 58 (1d100)>>4673181What now
Rolled 90 (1d100)>>4673181
>>4673182>>4673183>>467318590/100, most impressive. You notice something you wouldn’t have otherwise, nice. Writing.
>>4673194Nothing gets past Karns monkey senses
>>4673123“I’ll wait here.” you tell him telepathically. “But with all the damage this thing’s caused, your people have a long job ahead of them. It used it’s blades to cut right through the floors, that’s how it’s been getting around.”“What? That’s impossible.” he replies. “The floors are specifically resistant to being slashed apart.”“Well, when your guys get here, they’ll see it was two cuts through this interior wall.” you answer, floating over to it. But as you get closer, you notice something’s wrong. Then it hits you: the cuts it made in the wall are still slightly smoking. Leaning closer you take a sniff, and recoil immediately as the fumes burn your nose and shout. “Gah! Shit, that burns!”Shaking your head you back off, instead turning to the limp body and grab it with your telekinesis. Carefully you lift it into the air, holding one blade out towards you. And sure enough, barely visible you see that acid glistening and reflecting off the light of your aura. You then drop the body and reconnect with Daiko telepathically, to report your discovery.“So I figured out why they work so well.” you think at him. “It’s blades are covered in it. That acid it spits and bleeds, it’s swords’ are actually covered in the stuff. I bet that’s how it broke out.”“It wasn’t designed for that, last I checked.” Daiko tells you, but through the mental link feel his unease at this revelation. “I believe I’m going to have to be much more involved with the genetics division for the immediate future. And keep something like this from happening again.”“Sorry about your people, I know how that can hurt.” you say, trying to console him. “If you need help with anything, really, just let me know.”“I won’t forget your help today.” he tells you. “Had you not been inside, we would have had to resort to the Last Bedtime protocol. Luckily you were here, your teleportation really saved the day.”“Don’t worry about it, happy to help.” you answer, a sudden thought springing up in your mind. “Hey, remember that puzzle box the old man left? I haven’t made any progress with it, is it something you want back to try and crack?”“No, at least not for the near future.” Daiko answers. “I have enough impossible projects to manage, without another one silently taunting me. Knowing him, it was either something completely groundbreaking, or a completely redundant piece of tech built entirely differently. If this place ever slows down though, I’ll be happy to take a crack at it again.”“You ever want it, it’ll be on the ship.” you answer, ending the link. You then thank New Salda, powering down out of your Champion Berserker form as you reach out to Meloka.cont
>>4673295“Got the bug, we’re clear.” you tell her telepathically. “Just waiting here for B7 to lead the cleanup crew to me, then we’ll head back out of here.”“Already a step ahead of you.” she replies, you feeling her energy passing by your own as it rises up towards the planet’s surface. “We’ll meet you outside.”“See you there.” you reply, creating a ball of ki in your hand to begin looking around the area. Since this space seems to clearly be used for storage, you start wandering around a little bit and looking at things. Walking up to a rather large crate you pop it open, lifting the wooden lid and seeing something completely surprising: dozens upon dozens of the Covenant’s energy grenades are packed into this box! If one going off causes the others to detonate as well, there’s no telling how much damage this one crate can do. Curious you open the one beside it, and feel your blood run cold. Stacked carefully in their own little clear containers, are hundreds of the Covenant’s pink exploding crystals. Remembering the pain they caused, not only to you and your wife but in that terrible future that Future Chaya came from too leaves you trembling in rage. You’re tempted to smash the box, and blast those crystals into oblivion, but with a sigh manage to restrain yourself. They’re clearly being cautious with them, and hopefully someone in this building is developing armor that can stop this awful weapon. You start lowering the lid, when out of the corner of your eye think you see something move. Without hesitation you drop the lid, whirling towards your left and take your fighting stance, ready to fight another of those creatures. But instead of another giant scythe-armed bug, it’s just B7.“Oh hey, there you are.” you say, relaxing a bit as he walks closer to you. But something about his movements seem off, and his non-answer even more so. “B7? You okay? And where is the clean up crew?”B7 still doesn’t answer, you leaping back and flaring your aura up.“Don’t fuck with me, I’m not in the mood for pranks.” you say, and your jaw drops as before your eyes B7 changes. His entire body distorts and expands, and within a second you find yourself staring at...you. Standing there before you, every scar where you remember and your double even takes your fighting stance.“Don’t fuck with me.” it says, copying your voice too and causing a shiver to run up your spine. “I’m not in the mood for pranks.”What the hell is going on?!-Saiyan Conqueror Quest 151 paused again-
>>4673302And that’s it for tonight, enjoy today’s battle? It was certainly different than a usual battle, dex mini bosses can be fun. Ready to face yourself, and see what you can do? And what happened to B7? All this and more, when Saiyan Conqueror Quest resumes in just under 13 hours, noon EST.
>>4673295>the Last Bedtime protocolThat space pirate son of a bitch, they even had a self-destruct for the base, huh? I'm just glad the building wasn't rigged to explode after we beat the boss.And oh man, I did not expect a shapeshifter.
>>4673302Very funny, GD.Now where's the failed Ditto prototype that's unable to copy facial features correctly?I want to see it copy Karn so he has a goofy as fuck face.
>>4673302Oh cool, another clone>>4673307Thanks for the run GD, and yeah this was pretty rad. Bet you this thing just copies our every move, so we can probably beat it by not fighting it. Baring that just do stuff it can't see or mimic once we do it, like tk or grinder
>>4673330By Zeno...it's beautiful...
>>4673330.......yep, that's a kek
>>4673307Before I should forget, you should make something like an imgur gallery that's just a collection of all the art that's been made for this quest. I sometimes find myself wanting to find a specific piece but immediately giving up because I know i'd have to scour the archives for it.
Ended this episode a little early for the night, as I’m exhausted. We’ll pick back up usual time of noon EST. But please keep discussing, I enjoy reading anons thoughts
>>4673349It was a good place to end so that's fineAs far as discussion goes, I think we need to make a list of people we should really get to interacting with soon. Personally off the top of my head:It'd be in poor form to not meet with our students after all of thisNew Salda probably deserves some screen time, especially as we, her champion, weren't there for the undead rising upSome one on one time with the Guardian would suit us wellBeing a father figure for our kids, and our not!Kids(Raven, Vegeta etc.)Aku maybe? Idk
another day with saiyans living on a death planet. Honestly i'm surprised no saiyan scientist has tried making forest wookie mutants yet.
>>4673383>Implying that isn't the next basement down
>Be me>chilling and drawing a SSJ4 and swallowing my own words>update the thread watcher>suddenly from 5, 235+ replies show up>lookatthis.png>check the thread>page automatically goes to the bottom -What the fuck is a Scyther doing in here?Here's a WIP of Chaya, btw.
>>4673449NiceAnd genetic experiment, because our scientist are awesome
>>4673310Not quite a self destruct, it’s a bit more peaceful. But the place’s air vents can release a paralyzing neurotoxin that can put basically anything down and leave them comatose for days. Allowing an outside crew, under Vegeta’s command to then go in and clean the place out.>>4673320Ha.>>4673327Not quite a cloneAnd yeah, don’t try attacking this thing. Or it could go very poorly for you.>>467333011/10 edit, my fucking sides>>4673342How do?>>4673358Didn’t quite get to where I wanted to, so a nice suspenseful scene is better than a boring oneAnd you all could>>4673383>implying they never tried>>4673449It’s here because of mad science! Karn spent years fighting an enemy’s mad science, now it's his allies turn!
>>4673307>And that’s it for tonight, enjoy today’s battle? Yes.>It was certainly different than a usual battle, dex mini bosses can be fun.Karn is Dex + Str + End.>Ready to face yourself, and see what you can do?What is that? So Scyther while being on the loose damaged containment cells of other creatures, and this thing got loose. But what is this thing? Did they made something that can mimic others (possibly even their powers)? I'm starting to think it's not the only creature beside scyther that recently gained freedom.> And what happened to B7?B7 did not even reached the place yet. He and team are still walking here.>>4673330Nice>>4673449Great hair.
>>4673302FUCK ME I JUST REALIZED THIS THING GOT B7'S TEAM. YOU DON'T GET TO KILL MY STUDENTS AND GET AWAY WITH IT YOU WORM!
>>4673681Nah, probably didn't, its a Ditto, it can shapeshift into what its seen. B7 probably wondered by it before it escape, and it noticed people ignoring him.
>>4673685That is almost even more disconcerting. It'd mean that it has some real level of intelligence.Also some pre-fight speculation, If this thing is a ditto there is two possibilities:1. It will have our entire moveset off rip and maybe even our transformations. Can't afford to waste time killing it.2. It can only mimic what it observes. I'm considering this due to the fact that it copied our line exactly and didn't say a thing as B7.In either case I don't think a ditto can copy perfectly insofar as stamina is concerned. I doubt we'll be evenly matched. Then again, Karn's been fighting more powerful enemies than himself since day 1. It might have the arsenal to make us work for it.
>>4673689Well yeah, its a Ditto, one made by Saiyans at this time line.
>>4673643Ah, piss. After looking it up you can’t upload images or make a gallery on its mobile website. You’d have to download the app or try to fuck around with getting it to display the desktop website for you.Mobile truly is cucked
>>4673302“Okay no, fuck this. HAAAAA!!” you say, transforming into your emerald Super Saiyan form. Then to your complete shock, your copy clenches it’s fists, and does the same.“HAAAA!” it shouts, copying your transformation then simply staring at you. Unblinkingly.“B7, where are you?” you think out, reaching for B7’s mind. “You okay?”“I’m fine, Karn, what’s wrong?” B7 replies immediately. “Don’t tell me it isn’t dead.”“Something down here was walking around looking like you.” comes your telepathic reply. “And now it’s staring at me with my own face.”“Whatever you do, DON’T attack it!” B7 replies. “It can copy your movements, even energy techniques with only a single observation!”“Okay, so what the hell AM I supposed to do with this thing?” you ask, and almost feel B7 chuckling through the link.“Just say, in a calm and clear voice: D177, what are you doing out of your room?” he tells you. “It knows it isn’t supposed to be out, but sometimes sneaks out to startle people with their own face. Trust me.”“If you say so.” you answer him, then address your clone aloud with all the authority you can muster. “D177, what are you doing out of your room?”“Ahh-awwwww.” the copy says, entire body slumping forward in seeming disappointment. But it’s incredibly disturbing, watching your body move in ways that aren’t physically possible. Yet giving that command is all it takes, the creature turning and walking away from you and into the dark. Still wearing your face and body, which is just so disturbing to you you don’t have words. What the hell else have these madmen cooked up down here? As you ponder this question, you can sense B7 approaching from the other side with maybe a half-dozen weaker ki. So you turn around, a door opening maybe a dozen feet from the almost-hole in the wall.“Karn, there you are.” B7 says, looking around a bit confused. “Where’s D177?”“It went that way.” you say, pointing off the direction it walked down, then turn to the body. “And there’s the other creature. Watch the wall where it cut, it’s acid is in the cuts.”“You heard him, be careful.” B7 tells the group coming through behind him, then turns back to you. “So, tomorrow right? For training?”“Yeah, I’ll let you know what time once it’s decided.” you say, holding out your hand. He looks at it for a moment, then the two of you clasp forearms. “See you there.”Then letting go you once again use your Instant Transmission, leaving the labs behind and reappearing on the surface with your family. That was...an adventure.But what do you do now?>Find Chaya, see what your daughter’s been up to>Reach out and locate Bardock, you’re curious how he’s doing>Take the kids home to work up an appetite before supper>Try and find your students, and let them know training will return tomorrow>Other(write in)
>>4673834>Take the kids home to work up an appetite before supperToo much bullshit today. We can deal with this headache tomorrow.
>>4673834>Take the kids home to work up an appetite before supperOur students know damn well when training starts.
Leaving vote open another ten minutes for everyone to wake up
>>4673834>>Try and find your students, and let them know training will return tomorrow
>>4673839>>4673856>>4673876Three votes are enough to call it, Take the kids home to work up an appetite before supper wins it. Writing.
>>4673834“Alright everyone, let’s head back home.” you say, lifting off the ground. “It’s almost supper time.”Leading your family through the skies, you all leave the labs full of mad science behind and fly back towards the ocean and your home. You lead them all back to the beach, touching down beside the waves washing against the sand. Once on the ground you begin stretching, the older four immediately realizing what’s going down and begin doing the same. Maz and Kayle look around confused, clearly wondering what’s going.“Better stretch out you two.” you say, pulling your right arm towards your left shoulder behind your head. “Don’t want to cramp up before we all work up an appetite.”“Ooooh!” they both say excitedly, turning to each other and wrapping their arms around by their elbows. You focus on your own limbering up, working the tension from earlier out of your shoulders and arms. But after a minute or so of everyone readying up, you flip backwards. Landing on your feet in the shallow water you take your stance, but with your left hand make a “come here” gesture. “Show me what you can do.”“HAAAA!!” Tomitsu shouts, the twins having clasped hands and leaping for you. Tatsu on the right spins counterclockwise, slinging his sister around. But as she faces you switches that momentum, and slings Tatsu at you even harder and with more momentum than either could build by themselves. However you don’t even block the attack directly, instead deflect it aside with the back of your right forearm. The fun doesn’t stop there, as with your free left hand grab Tatsu’s right leg. “Huh?”“Got you!” you call out teasingly, jerking them into a spin over your head for one, two, three revolutions before tossing them back where they came. You see Broly going to intercept them, perhaps to stop their flight, but can’t focus on that as another leaps at you.“HYAAA!!” Caulifla shouts, front-flipping over her siblings as she tries going for a two-handed axe handle blow. So you raise both arms in an ‘x’, catching her blow with your guard up. Before she can back off, or go for perhaps a kick, you push her off back over your head and behind you by throwing your arms wide. “WAAAAAA!?”“HRRRYAAAA!” Broly roars, swinging at you with a hard right. And you don’t have time to guard with your widespread arms, so instead lift your right leg and block his blow with your shin just below the knee. As he does the older twins attack, one rushing from either side with a flying kick. You block the simultaneous strikes with your forearms, but this leaves you wide open.cont
>>4674006“Got you now!” Maz shouts, as he and Kayle leap over Broly’s back towards your chest. And before you can free a limb to block it, they both punch you. Normally that kinda blow wouldn’t have even staggered you, but just before their fists hit, a surprisingly powerful blow strikes the back of your left knee. Caulifla’s surprise kick knocks you off-balance, allowing Maz and Kayle to actually knock you off your feet.“Woah!” you say, exaggerating a little bit as you fall backwards into the water with a splash. You let the waves wash over you a moment, before rolling backwards back onto your feet and into your stance again. “Hey, that was some pretty good teamwork there.”“You think that’s good, wait ‘till you see this!” Caulifla shouts enthusiastically, nodding to Broly but trying to appear subtle about it.But what do you do?>Keep on the defensive, let them attack>Go on the offensive, let them defend>Switch to your Su Ma style, try and evade their hits>Switch to Djem So, counter their hits and strike their openings>Other(write in)

>>4674114I'm so proud of [INSERT CHILD HERE]
>>4674009“Show me what you got.” you answer, once more taking your stance. And the moment you do, Broly explodes off the ground. He closes the distance in a second, swinging for your head with a straight right. Which you evade easily, leaning back and taking a half-step bavk with your right foot. Broly’s fist sails harmlessly past your face, and before he can turn into another attack press your right hand to his chest. “Gotcha.”And with a stepped-into shove and effort of will launch the oldest kid flying, Broly sailing clean off the small island headed back towards the mainland. But that doesn’t mean you get a break, as the youngest twins Maz and Kayle were right behind him.“Haaa!” they shout, both going for your face with flying double-foot kicks. Which you dodge by sliding back with your left foot, pivoting on your right heel and letting them soar right past you. “Ah! H-Hey!”“HYAA!!” Caulifla shouts, dropping a flying right axe kick down at your head. A simple sidestep isn’t enough to dodge this one, and instead throw yourself into a right side flip. Your arms never touch the ground, feet returning to the ground an instant after Caulifla’s kick does, the spray of sand hiding her from your eyes. But it doesn’t hide Tomitsu’s approach, the twins rushing at you together. But at the last second split apart, kicking off each other’s feet into different direction spins. Tomi spins up above you, into a straight forward punting kick for your face while Tatsu spins into a low turning kick aimed for just below your ribs. Twisting your body counterclockwise you throw yourself into another backflip, landing on your hands while still facing them both before springing back off your hands into another twisting flip back up to your feet.Yet you’ve no sooner landed than Broly’s already back at you, swinging with a barrage of powerful blows that forces you to bob and weave between his attacks, twisting and flipping around his powerful strikes. Then you sense Caulifla behind you, twisting and dropping into a back turning kick that takes Broly’s ankles out from underneath him.“GUH!” Broly exhales as his back hits the sand, you taking the momentum of the spin onto your shoulders and flip back to your feet. Just in time too, bouncing off the ground and twisting with a flip over Caulifla’s lunging kick.“Too slow kiddos.” you tease, landing on your feet again as Cauli flips around back towards you. “C’mon, not gonna let your old man show you-“cont
>>4674218And of course, as you were talking, Maz and Kayle each crash into the back of your knees. Caught by complete surprise you’re knocked off-balance, falling backwards towards the ground.“GOT YOU!!” Cauli shouts, and slams her fist square into your chest. The blow is enough to send you crashing down, Maz and Kayle both leaping up from your legs and landing on your chest. Tatsu and Tomi both pounce on you as well, your kids laughing and giggling at having taken you down. You can’t help but laugh with them, letting them enjoy their moment of victory with you. They actually got you down, and you can’t help but feel impressed. Your kids are all strong, and will one day grow into powerful warriors into their own right. And you’ll do whatever it takes; you’ll fight any foe, god or demon, that tries to take their futures away from them.https://youtube.com/watch?v=5COgfH-aUSw-Saiyan Conqueror Quest 151 End-
>>4674225And that’s it for this weekend’s run, everyone enjoy it? Ready for the next episode, and seeing what comes next? Enjoy your kids fighting wolf pack-style, and seeing how well they work together? Curious where they picked that up from? All this and more, on the next episode of Saiyan Conqueror Quest! Sorry for the shorter run time today, but family’s coming over
>>4673463>And genetic experiment, because our scientist are awesomeWe should give them some samples of ours and Broly's DNA, maybe they can help pinpoint which segments of the population carry the Legendary genes.
>>4674250>Enjoy your kids fighting wolf pack-style, and seeing how well they work together?It's good to see they can function as a team, that's battles are won.>Curious where they picked that up from?I have no doubt in my mind a certain squad of stylish soldiers rubbed off on them.
>>4673463I see.>>4674225It's done.Saiyajin Tomboy tummy here.>>4673679Thanks.>>4674317>certain squad of stylish soldiers rubbed off on them.I love these guys.
>>4674294First off, are you sure about that, and second I wouldn’t recommend it.>>4674317Ha, but they haven’t spent that much time around the Ginyu Force.>>4674375Woot woot
>>4674632Fuck dammit this one dropped the pic. And yes, spoilers very related
>>4674657I loved Satan being in the movie, but god was the plot stupid as fuck.
>>4674657>>4674632Nevermind then. That movie is so bad, I refuse to do anything that could potentially lead to it on principle.
>>4674659>>4675371That movie was actually good, right up until Broly appeared. 18 and Mr Satan play really well off each other, and goten/trunks weren’t bad. If it’d been any other movie villain, like say a remake Bojack or a brand new “Cell”, it would’ve been a good movie
>>4673834My photoshop in use. Nice.>What the hell else have these madmen cooked up down here?Maybe we should visit them more often.>>4674250>And that’s it for this weekend’s run, everyone enjoy it?Sure.>Curious where they picked that up from?The kids that went on a hive campaign perfected it there, and those that were not there were taught fighting in team by Old Guardian's ghost + Tatsu.>Sorry for the shorter run time today, but family’s coming overNo problem.>>4674294>We should give them some samples of ours and Broly's DNA Mad scientist playing around with berserker DNA while trying to use it to make deadliest creature possible. This seems like it may result in something similar to Cell on Earth.>>4674375>Saiyajin Tomboy tummy here.Looking good. >>4674657Or it may result in a botched Karn + something abomination. Reminds me of that Karn clone we killed long time ago, he was brainwashed into "Kill all saiyans".
By the way I was thinking again about cool aspects of mastered Instant Transmission and once Karn's reaches a certain level, this move becomes quite broken. Even if you know that Karn has it, and understand how it works it still will be mega hard to counter. Like this for example:>Karn throws a right punch at opponent.>Opponent tries to block with his forearm.>Nearly the moment where punch is about to connect Karn vanishes.>The same moment he appears behind the enemy landing that fist punch but in the back of enemy's head.>Sucker punched even though enemy knew Karn was attacking.>Opponent wants to react, maybe turn around, but Karn has already vanished again from the spot from where he delivered the hit to the head.>Enemy senses Karn from his right side again (charging a death beam), but as he turns to deal with him Karn again disappears. > He feels Karn's Ki behind and a little to the left.>But before he can do something fast enough, Karn fires a death beam into his knee hitting easily from this range.>Again Karn once more no longer stays in the same spot vanishing instantly to another location.This move can be also paired with I think nearly every technique and move to aid it and allow using it in an unexpected way. Once you are free of the necessary "fingers to forehead" gesture and trained this enough, you can disappear and reappear instantly at any time, unexpectedly and many times during a fight.Now if you pair this with what Broly did, the complete Ki Energy masking you then become even deadlier. Karn will disappear and reappear, but they won't be able to locate him with Ki sense, so this raises difficulty for enemies.Downside is that it requires a Ki to lock into, so you cannot just teleport anywhere, but it must be near somebody with KI. However maybe we can push those boundaries with some creativity. >I remember anon asked if we can Instant Transmission to Divine Dragon Force. Never tested, but maybe...Also:>I'm curious if Karn could spread like for a starter 10 or 15 hovering balls of Ki above battlefield, or somewhere near the where the fight takes place .>They are our Ki hovering like Ki mines.>Then lock onto one of them, and Instant Transmission to it. >Then to another, and another teleporting between them.Also:> leave Ki ball hovering somewhere in the Tournament of Power arena>unless somebody destroys it, we can teleport back to it if Karn gets knocked of the stage.Do you think this could work? Maybe it could help Karn.
>>4675784Technically speaking we can just constantly keep teleporting to Jiren so long as we're conscious.
>>4675781>My photoshop in use. Nice.Not gonna lie, that picture alone inspired that last encounter. That’s about how long I’ve been waiting for this.What if I told you it wasn’t either of them?>Reminds me of that Karn clone we killed>weYou didn’t kill it, remember? Your kids did.>>4675784Using Instant Transmission with strikes does have a pretty big weakness. Teleporting robs yourself of the strike’s momentum, so unless you’re going for a one inch punch it won’t work well.As for Broly’s control, he’s decades away from being able to pull something like that offCannot IT to DDF, as it doesn’t necessarily have ki you can sense.IT really needs a “living” source of ki to travel to. While there are workarounds, that sadly isn’t one. Cooler tried back while plotting his revenge>>4675821Or any of your allies, or enemies. Except for Universe 9, the weirdos.
>>4676459Couldn't you just IT to the second before you launch the strike so no momentum is lost?
>>4676459>You didn’t kill it, remember? Your kids did.But we did. I'm talking about Evil Karn Clone from Saiyan Conqueror Quest 109. First post he appears is "3938724" Quote:>The figure before you is a muscular, well-built Saiyan wearing a familiar suit of green armor. But what’s more astonishing is this Saiyan is wearing your face! Is, is that you?>“All Saiyans must die.” the other you says, you feeling his ki surging upwards. Wait, this isn’t a phantom! “HAAAA!!”>Your clone tosses an Energy Javelin right at you...We then fight him, he turns into Emerald Oozaru, real Karn cuts his tail off, continues to fight and finally after evil clone is beaten, the real Karn summons Dragon Force and uses Dragon's Glare to drain all of his Ki ending his life this way. Quote from his last moments (3940087):> you can no longer sense anything from your clone. You’d sapped his strength away until there was nothing left, taking your clone’s power as your own. Ending your attack you banish your Stand, expecting the stolen power to fade away as it’d done before. But this time the power doesn’t disappear, remaining within you. It seems now that if you kill whoever you’d taken the strength from before banishing your Stand, the borrowed power has no one to return to.>“Sorry.” you say to your clone, sighing out and turning away from him. Your body swells with power, both normal and demonic, but what do you do now?
>>4676583Nah man IT robs you of your motion. You come out of it stationary. If you were mid punch you'd pop up and have to begin moving your arm again because it would have stopped moving from the teleport.It's not a problem with launching energy attacks but it wouldn't help with throwing blows.
>>4676459>Not gonna lie, that picture alone inspired that last encounter. That’s about how long I’ve been waiting for this.That's very nice to hear.I'm curious about this D177. Can he fight well? Could we do sparring with him? Can he raise his power level to match anyone observes? What is D177 actually? I guess we should come to the lab again to find out.>What if I told you it wasn’t either of them?I would be confused, who taught it to them. Maybe the learned on their own while dealing with bullies?>Using Instant Transmission with strikes does have a pretty big weakness. Teleporting robs yourself of the strike’s momentum, so unless you’re going for a one inch punch it won’t work well.Oh thanks for explaining this. I see that it will not work as I imagined, but it's good to know this now, before we make those big decisions about Karn's future.>As for Broly’s control, he’s decades away from being able to pull something like that offOk.>Cannot IT to DDF, as it doesn’t necessarily have ki you can sense.It has God Ki and we are a mortal, but if Karn had God Ki like Goku, would he be able to sense Divine Dragon Force's Ki? I know Stands can be usually impossible to perceive by those who don't have them, but DDF is Karn's Stand. So maybe he would be able sense Divine Dragon Force's God Ki if he had his own too?>IT really needs a “living” source of ki to travel to. While there are workarounds, that sadly isn’t one. Cooler tried back while plotting his revengeGood to know. Instant Transmission is not so overpowered in that case, something to think about, since I assumed it could do more, but it is still quite useful regardless.
>>4677529Nah I get that, I'm talking popping in with your fist already wound back, so you're popping in the second before you'd put any momentum into the punch
>>4677695While that'd be slightly more advantageous against most opponents, it also sounds like a good way to get stuffed by opponents who severely outclass us like Beerus or Jiren.
>>4676583Yes, if you do a full punch AFTER the IT. But the teleportation resets your momentum to zero, so you can’t really combo with it.>>4677528I was thinking the OTHER Karn clone that the kids fought, not the one that went big green during Hatchiyack. My bad.>>4677530I find inspiration everywhere. Just like a certain Namek-locked warrior’s path to bower.D177 is an ongoing experiment with infiltration and sabotage. But it’s nowhere near ready to go to testing, even though this isn’t the first time it’s escapedMaybe they learned it FROM the bullies?Do Stands “have” ki in the way you can perceive it? Did you sense ki from Star Platinum, or Kars’ Za Warudo?>>4677695>>4677825>it also sounds like a good way to get stuffed by opponents who severely outclass us like Beerus or Jiren.Or faster ones like Dyspo or Golden Freeza, or those who can pause/skip time
>>4677972>I was thinking the OTHER Karn clone that the kids fought, not the one that went big green during Hatchiyack. My bad.I'd have loved to find a wayward Karn Clone and teach him the ways of the Saiyans.He'd be like another son honestly. Then again Karn Jr. exists so I'm placated in regards to that. Speaking of, how's the little guy adjusting to life on New Salda? If I remember correctly this is his first time extreme gravity.>I find inspiration everywhere. Just like a certain Namek-locked warrior’s path to bower.I know that's a reference to something but I'm drawing a blank.>Maybe they learned it FROM the bullies?I guess it stands to reason that you'd have to fight as a team if you want to bully Karn's kids.>Do Stands “have” ki in the way you can perceive it? Did you sense ki from Star Platinum, or Kars’ Za Warudo?I'm guessing the answer here is "no". Makes sense given that they're not actually unique entities themselves.>Or faster ones like Dyspo or Golden Freeza, or those who can pause/skip timeI'm sure Guldo and Hit are gonna have a fun match when we get there.
>>4677972>I was thinking the OTHER Karn clone that the kids fought, not the one that went big green during Hatchiyack. My bad.No problem, mistakes happen, last thread I managed to misidentify mommy cow and her baby as bulls.>even though this isn’t the first time it’s escapedLooks like he wants to break free.>Maybe they learned it FROM the bullies?Very possible. I wonder how many bullies they had to deal with. Is that super saiyan young girl that Tatsu defeated, also bullying Karn's kids? This child that Tatsu protected, Uzai, where is he now? Did the girl got him when Tatsu was not around? Sorry for dropping this many questions. I can wait patiently till story reveals this. >Do Stands “have” ki in the way you can perceive it? Did you sense ki from Star Platinum, or Kars’ Za Warudo?No they don't. You are right. I was just trying to find a loophole that would allow Instant Transmission to Divine Dragon Force. It would be useful if it was possible.There was also the factor of how unusual the origin of DDF is. The God Ki that transformed it was not ours, but from enemy ningen hating Kai in a stolen mortal body. Since sometimes Stands don't follow their usual "rules", like those that exist without user, I was hoping maybe we would be able to sense DDF and where it is enough to use Instant Transmission to it.Speaking of Dragon Force I was thinking about how great thing is having a Stand (and a decent one on top of that, not like that Woolly Bully who was not that great). Dragon Force sure can be described as one, so when Future Chaya got it from her dad, it was a good gift.Though I guess she is not the Stand type of person. She never uses it. Maybe if this keeps on going it will evolve into 「Forgotten Dragon Force」 or 「Forsaken Dragon Force」.>>4678922>Speaking of, how's the little guy adjusting to life on New Salda? If I remember correctly this is his first time extreme gravity.With his massive starting power level it might not be much for him.>I know that's a reference to something but I'm drawing a blank.Me too.
>>4679183Future Chaya's 「DRAGON FORCE」may well be completely different from anything we've seen before given how it originally transformed alongside the user.Now that Chaya's acclimated to Primal and uses it as her base form, her stand must be something to behold. Doubly so in her Apex form.
>>4679200>Future Chaya's 「DRAGON FORCE」may well be completely different from anything we've seen before given how it originally transformed alongside the user.True.>Now that Chaya's acclimated to Primal and uses it as her base form, her stand must be something to behold. Doubly so in her Apex form.That is so awesome.
>>4678922Near the final end Nefarious thought the only way to beat Karn was with another Karn.>you'd have to fight as a team if you want to bully Karn's kids.Especially if you go against the oldest twins. You go up with even numbers, you’re already outnumbered 3 minds to 2.>I'm sure Guldo and Hit are gonna have a fun match when we get there.The way their powers play off is interesting. With Hit’s Time Skip he actually disappears from time while skipping into that other dimension for fractions of a second. If Guldo’s Time Freeze hits DURING Time Skip, no matter how long Guldo holds it Hit may not be there. Or he may reappear in frozen time, still able to move around like normal. Dueling time abilities are always a trip, like Jotaro vs (anime only spoilers).>>4679183>Looks like he wants to break free.Is it a he though? And as far as freedom is concerned, does it even know? Or is it simple curiousity>I can wait patiently till story reveals this. Good, because we’re finally in the arc where these sort of epilogues get their IC reveals, and what happened next.>It would be useful if it was possible.But how would, if it were actually possible mind, teleporting TO something you're physically connected to work? Just imagine how many ways that goes wrong, starting with no longer existing.When Dragon Force is transferred, it isn’t the same Stand anymore unlike for example the clingy back-fucker that nearly killed Rohan.Karn Jr hasn’t really noticed. Plus he’s an infant.As for the reference, I’ll just give you and >>4678922 a name. Keman>>4679259>>4679200I’ll say this, it is certainly different than the one Karn’d given her. Don’t forget, back as a Super Saiyan 3 she nearly cracked the Supreme Kai of Time’s Barrier. And speaking of Future Chaya, from Guts Bro’s new drawing pad. Behold!
>>4679439is Guts Bro sending you commissions as JPEGs or are you not posting PNGs for the sake of file size limitations?
>>4679472I’m just posting the small one here
Also this week’s epilogue, if I finish it, will be a ToP set in another timeline. The plus side of writing Ultra Instinct is the one using it doesn’t have to pay as much attention to the fight and whatever their opponent is actually doing.
>>4679439>But how would, if it were actually possible mind, teleporting TO something you're physically connected to work? Just imagine how many ways that goes wrong, starting with no longer existing.Pic related is Red Shenron and how I imagine Divine Dragon Force. So how would it work?> There is a fight with enemies who's Ki we can't sense. Maybe they are super advanced deadly robots for example (so non living beings). >Karn is fighting, but can't use Instant Transmission to do some surprising attacks/moves with it since nobody near has Ki that can be sensed.>They are fighting above ground, in the air.>Let's say Karn is completely surrounded by all those robots, from up and down, left and right, all sides.>And he keeps fighting, they aren't getting upper hand, but there's great many of them.>Karn says "Is that all you got?"> Evil AI master mind that controls all those robots responds by making every robot say same sentence in perfect sync "You actually fell right into my trap.">Karn instincts suddenly warn him he is in danger as every single robot begins glowing.>He already understands even before smug AI makes robots say "Suicide destruction activated".>Surrounded by robot-suicide bombs that will explode if he smashes through them and will blow up anyway in a second or two if he stays in place.>Tough situation.> But even though he seem to be not doing anything, he already summoned Divine Dragon Force the moment his instincts warned him and send it to quickly flyaway from here, between robots.>The Dragon did this. >Seems like Karn is trapped, but actually before explosion he uses Instant Transmission to teleport to the flying away DDF.>Huge explosion is dodged this way.That's how I imagine it, and it could be useful in many other situations. Since DDF is so long Karn would teleport near its head.
>>4679439> teleporting TO something you're physically connected to work?I always imagined DDF is separate, like Star Platinum is from Jotaro, not constantly connected to Karn. Do you mean by this that DDF is always linked with Karn's body like Scorpion's chain? Or like big red tentacle?If DDF's body is constantly connected to Karn, then it is something I did not thought of.Anyway all those things are only being analyzed like this, because I was looking for a way that would allow Karn to be able to teleport more freely. Not just near Ki signatures. Maybe in the future Karn will learn some more uninhibited form of teleportation, and all those attempts to make Instant Transmission do it will not be even necessary.
>>4679439>And speaking of Future Chaya, from Guts Bro’s new drawing pad. Behold!This is great.> If Guldo’s Time Freeze hits DURING Time Skip, no matter how long Guldo holds it Hit may not be there. Or he may reappear in frozen time, still able to move around like normal. Dueling time abilities are always a tripFascinating.>Is it a he though? And as far as freedom is concerned, does it even know? Or is it simple curiousityI see.>I’ll say this, it is certainly different than the one Karn’d given her.Can't wait for the reaveal.>>4679849>Also this week’s epilogue, if I finish it, will be a ToP set in another timeline. Very nice, by the way the last epilogue was great, Cell getting the Golden form was awesome, finally he is showing what it means to unlock potential of "perfect organism".Gifts from Mechikabura were very nice, he was too, yet at the same time he was scary. You know on one hand he visited with gifts and friendship, on the other he showed he knows where Towa lives and that he can casually get there anytime.I'm shocked Ace is there, is this the first time in his life he can really think independently? That seem to be the picture from what Mechi and Fu said.>The plus side of writing Ultra Instinct is the one using it doesn’t have to pay as much attention to the fight and whatever their opponent is actually doing.Never thought of that this way.
>>4680972We could have accomplished the same thing by throwing out a ki blast and then teleporting to it.
>>4680978But GD said that using Instant Transmission to a sphere of Ki or a Ki blast like that don't work. It has to be "living Ki" inside a being that is alive as I understand it. Look at this post:>>4676459>IT really needs a “living” source of ki to travel to. While there are workarounds, that sadly isn’t one. Cooler tried back while plotting his revenge
>>4680983Hm...I wonder if we could figure out a way of doing multi-forms that don't split our Ki evenly across clones.Something like making a somewhat ethereal Karn with 0.5% of our power.
>>4680993>Something like making a somewhat ethereal Karn with 0.5% of our power.Interesting idea. Ghost Karn. Would he be able of going through walls?Though multiform makes a second body or more. So it's still a body, with only 0,5% of power. He would be still touchable, visible and killable. But he could be serving as a living Ki point to which we can teleport to. Though I'm worried enemies would try to kill him as soon as he appeared, unless we leave him hidden somewhere before fight.
>>4681020I think there's a precedence for something like it at least.Pic related, and the ghosts clearly weren't just floating balls of ki either.
>>4681033True. This is very interesting and also something different than multiform. As I understood from what GD said making a ghost like that is hard to pull off. Gotenks did it because skills of both children that made him were incredibly multiplied by their temporary fusion.I like this ghost idea, though it would probably require a lot of learning to get close to this skill level. Even Meloka seems like she is not near this level yet.Another question is: Would this sentient Kamikaze ghost be a viable target to Instant transmission next to?Gotenks' ghosts explode when touched. What you said about making them ethereal is interesting, a Ki made apparition that can pass through matter. Very interesting but also sounds like something very hard to make.
>>4680972You missed my entire point. How do you teleport to something ATTACHED TO YOU? What happens to it when you vanish? The instant you disappear it does so too. So tell me, how can you teleport -to- nothing?>>4680975Dragon Force(in almost all forms and iterations) is physically connected somehow, generally to the user’s right arm.>>4680977Yes, thanks again to the anon who recc’d him.>finally he is showing what it means to unlock potential of "perfect organism".Just wait, someone in your timeline can do the same...And yes. Mechikabura is the nicest, most intimidating individual currently active in this multiverse’s timespace.Ace is free. Now what he does with that freedom, well, is up to him.>Never thought of that this way.Does let me be more conversation-focused, instead of hitting post limits constantly with describing blows.
Also at this point, unfortunately I’m not going to be able to finish this epilogue before this weekend as I’ve only gotten five posts in. Have had some serious writer’s block this week, didn’t finish the first post until last night. But hopefully that doesn’t happen mid-thread this weekend, which we’re still on schedule for! As of right now, episode 152 will start Saturday at noon EST.
>>4681425Don't sweat it GD. Nothing good comes from forcing yourself to sit and stare at a blank text box.
>>4681425No prob, you don't have to bust an omake out every week, looking forward to the next live
We’re in the final stretch, less than 24 hours before 152 begins!>>4681523>>4681856Thanks for understanding. Hopefully it goes away by tomorrow
>>4682071Hey GD, before you're occupied tomorrow, quick question.Do you have a list of Karn's most prominent scars?Anything you would make sure to include if you were drawing the character.
>>4682317I’ve left most up to anons, remembering the damage from past battles that didn’t get healed immediately. But the two most prominent are still the left cheek scar, which I still haven’t revealed how he got, and the large chest scar from getting punched through the chest by Mira.
>>4682326>which I still haven’t revealed how he gotI'm willing to bet it's related to the Tuffle Genocide.
>>4682330>tfw it was actually a shaving accident at the age of seven
>>4682415>Kid Karn saw Tatsu barely dodging Tuffle bayonets just to trim his beard>shenanigans ensue
>>4682421I've found that the elderly most hung up on saftey tend to have done the dumbest shit. I'd believe Papa Tatsu was a daredevil.
>>4682476Of course he'd have a habit of almost dying on the regular.Where else do you think Karn got it from?
>>4682526Apparently, his mom was the big protector type. Tatsu was just ballsier then most.
>>4681253>You missed my entire point. How do you teleport to something ATTACHED TO YOU? What happens to it when you vanish? The instant you disappear it does so too. So tell me, how can you teleport -to- nothing?When it's attached, then it is indeed a problem, but I though DDF is separate. >>finally he is showing what it means to unlock potential of "perfect organism".>Just wait, someone in your timeline can do the same..."Can do the same" as if right now already, in the present current time. But you phrased it in a way that makes me unsure if it meant that someone "has ability to o it" or "has ability to do it and already did it", but perhaps clarifying this would be too much of a spoiler. It is most probably not the Cell from our timeline. Due to us altering history of canon Dragon Ball, the events that led to creation of Cell are likely never to happen, and if Gero still decides to start Cell project it will be completely different creature, because he will not have genetic material that made canon Cell, he will have to use something else.I have one suspicion about who it is Kars, and if it is not that person then it maybe it's somebody we never heard of. Perhaps our multiple actions and alterations of history has led to somebody different attempting to make a perfect weapon and a genetically engineered warrior in one. Why? It could be somebody with a grudge against Saiyans and PTO. I mean we fought a lot of battles, somebody might wants revenge.>>4681425No problem, don't force yourself to this. It's fun for you and fun for us. This is not a job you have to do. We understand and we can wait for you to write it when you want to.
>>4682330You’d lose that bet.>>4682421Ha>>4682476Look how he lived.>>4682526>>4682532Karn got the best of his parentage.>>4682590Nope, it’s an attached Stand.And would be possible spoilers to reveal now.And thanks. Just been feeling out of it this week, hopefully I’m better when I wake up.
