Wealth, fame, power. Gold Roger the king of the pirates obtained this and everything else the world had to-"NO!"You shout furiously.After reading the headline of the newspaper you first felt weak and scared, only managing to let out a few whimpers. But now that you managed to digest what was presented you felt that uneasiness in your stomach condense into a pit of vitriolic hate and anger. Eliza D. Silver, the woman that saved your life all those years ago is now in the hands of the marines and they just announced her execution. This can not stand. But as your fists clench around the newspaper and as you force the air out of your lungs through your teeth you hear a voice calling out to you louder and louder until it manages to pierce the veil of madness clouding your mind."-ilver! SILVER!"You look up and see King Neptune of Fish-Man Island looming over you with a stern look on his face."Are you listening to me?! I know that you're mad-jamon. But remember what you promised!"Promise? The very word itself is sending your blood over the boiling point. But even as you give him a death glare that makes the air itself move with a powerful gust of wind Neptune doesn't relent."LISTEN TO ME! YOU GAVE ME YOUR WORD! YOU SWORE ON YOUR VERY NAME THAT YOU WOULDN'T DO ANYTHING CRAZY!"Fish-men Plaza is silent like the grave and nobody short of Neptune himself is capable of standing up to you now. All others avert their gaze or have run away out of a primal fear. Even Shirahoshi herself is speechless as she's witnessing the malice emanating from you. There are no words that could convey how you feel right now. Eliza is in danger and this nobody, this weakling has the galls to tell you to stand down.>Crazy? I'LL SHOW YOU CRAZY!>"And I guess if I held your kids hostage you wouldn't try anything "crazy", huh?">Right. I did promise, didn't I? (try to calm down)>Other?
Welcome to West Blue Seadogs, where logic is frowned upon and autism reigns supremeIf you want to have a dumb adventure I'll take your coat
>>5531868>>"And I guess if I held your kids hostage you wouldn't try anything "crazy", huh?"Yea, I get that Neptune is trying to keep us from turning the plaza into a charnel house, because he would be willing to do the exact same if Shirahoshi was in danger like that. Good to be back, I've missed this whole thing.
>I'm going too kill them...
>>5531868>>"And I guess if I held your kids hostage you wouldn't try anything "crazy", huh?"
>>5531868>>Right. I did promise, didn't I? (try to calm down)
>>5531868>"And I guess if I held your kids hostage you wouldn't try anything "crazy", huh?"
>>5531885Could we be a little more specific? Cause while I know what you mean, and yes we will, I'd also rather not accidentally Fishman island.
Silver will start with a clap-back>writing
Though Neptunes words haven't managed to calm you down one bit they were plenty enough to shake you up just enough so that you can focus all your resentment."And I guess if I held your kids hostage you'd be calm too.""T-That's-"His faltering is all the answer you need. Without another word you morph your legs into a bats and start sprinting towards the exit, charging through anyone and anything that might impede your movement. You don't bother putting on your diving suit, rather you're satisfied with just one of the bubble corals as protection against the seawater. Once you're out of the island and in the black abyss you take one look up before using the seabed as a springboard. The bubble gets left behind as you shoot out of it and towards the surface. Even though the water paralyzes you it actually can't even stop your acceleration to the surface, only slow it down. Still you make it to fresh air in record time and don't waste a second making your way to Outer Heaven where a couple of greeters welcome you before they get stunned into silence.Dripping wet with seawater and looking like you're ready for murder you march inside where apparently the whole city is in an uproar. Looks like the news made it even here. Many of the visitors are attempting to flee the island and in their mass panic they caused a great congestion and nobody can make it to their own ships. Even the dockworkers are overwhelmed by the crowd that gathered before them. But a select few, those who are not just passing by but whom have made Outer Heaven and those who have any sense of loyalty to you are frothing at the mouth. Their back and forth shouting only serves to amplify their outrage.Your own crewmembers have already gathered at your seat of power and they too are arguing among themselves."It's obvious what the fuck we're gonna do! So why the fuck are we dicking around?!""Because it's not that simple Bloodhair.""Excuse me but who the fuck told you that you get to have a word here you fucking suit?! Do you think we forgot how you're a traitorous whore that we should've killed the moment we caught you at that base?!"Murray angrily smashes his anchor down on the table and breaks it into splinters."QUIET! Both of you! Captain on deck! Silver."He gives you an acknowledging nod and the others quickly fall in line.In return you frown at him."I want an explanation why you're not at the ship if you know what's going on!""Captain we-"Clown then steps up."It's me."You draw your sword and touch its tip to her throat."Is this another mutiny Clown?"Pepe doesn't bother to move Argent away and remains perfectly calm."Hardly. But I believe you're not in any condition to make sound decisions so I need you to hear me out before we do anything hasty."Returning your sword to its place you scowl at her."You got two minutes."
"Thank you.""This better be good.""Save your comments until I'm done chef.""Silvers mom was captured by the marines and you want us to WAIT?! Are you fucking serious?!""WILL! Language!""Sorry mom."Pepe sighs."Would you just let me explain myself?!"The others exchange a frustrated look and shut their mouths."Thank you. Now as you've clearly demonstrated you're all fiercely loyal to Silver and want to help him in his time of need. That's good. But how exactly do you plan on doing that? By storming Impel Down and rescuing her, no doubt.""Well yea-""Big mistake. And that's the problem. You're all too emotionally heated to think things through which will be disastrous for you. Eliza D. Silver is not in Impel Down."The others erupt and start bombarding Clown with accusations and questions mostly pertaining to just how exactly she knows that."I'm not receiving reports from the government if that's what you're asking. It's simple logic. If you read the paper carefully you'll see that the execution is scheduled to be in a week. That means she's already been transferred to Marineford so that we couldn't intercept her transport. Secondly, and this is important, this tactic may seem familiar to how they announced Firefist Ace's execution but that couldn't be further from the truth. Silver is not Whitebeard, not even close. And Eliza is not the child of the Pirate King. The purpose of the news article is thus different. For Newgate, who has cultivated a reputation over the decades it was a declaration of war which forced him into fighting the Government on their terms. For Silver who is quite a bit more savage and doesn't care about his appearance this is a taunt. "We got someone you care about. Come and get her". This is obviously a trap.""Thanks Clown for your opinion."You respond."Disregarded.""Listen to me! Eliza is at Marineford, for sure! And she's guarded by every single marine they can spare. In Impel Down there will be only a token force meant to serve as bait! I'm sure if you go there you'll be walking into a trap.""Why would they go through so much trouble?"Angel asks with her arms crossed."Because they don't want to ruin Silvers reputation, they want to eliminate or at the very least hurt him! And for the record I'm not telling you not to do anything. I'm saying that you need to act smart now!"You ponder on her words for a moment."Are you sure she's at Marineford?""I'd bet my life on it.""Good. Because that's what you're betting. We're heading for Marineford!"Murray nods."Shall we send word for our allies?""If you do that you'll engulf half the world in war..."Ann retorts.>Yes. Call everyone.>Tell them that those who don't stand with me stand against me.>No. I will not wait a moment! We're going NOW! >Other?
>>5531998>Yes. Call everyone.>Tell them that those who don't stand with me stand against me.Yeah silver wouldn't hold anything back on this
>>5531998>Yes. Call everyone.>Ok Clown, you're smarter then me. You got any ideas?I like how Clown is the detached one here and not because I don't think she cares but I mean this is what she used to do. A week is a long time, long enough to not just rush headlong into whatever beartrap they got prepared for us. That said Angel, please, "Why would the Marines go through so much trouble to off the man who burned the holy land and stole Big Mom's throne" cmon girl, you're better then that.
So what are the other big players response to this gonna be do you think? like kaidos 100% gonna come and turn this war into a 3-way like he tried to do with the original marineford war but shanks stopped him, speaking of not sure whether shanks will actually try and stop him here he might as too contain the chaos like he did originally but if he knows luffy in wano he might let kaido go so luffy has an easier time, blackbeard might crash the party once everyones on the verge of death and pick up some strong DFs, any other major players we need to think about here?
>>5532010hmm don't think the entire force of the revolutionaries would come but i wouldn't be surprised if a large subset bailed from whever they're assigned to come and support us, though in that case dragon himself might back us then if our supporters in the army are large enough so that them desertting would cripple the orginazation too much
>>5532010Well lets see, the underworld probably wants both sides to lose so I wouldn't be surprised if a bunch of mercs got involved in and around the periphery.But it is my hope that we run this much less like Marineford and much more like mission impossible/any old Schwarzenegger movie. Because Silver isn't stupid, he just thinks sideways, and once he calms down an inch he'l understand repeating Whitebeard isn't gonna work out for anyone but the marines
>>5532021i highly doubt we'd be able to break her out, they're gonna have her locked down hard and especially with how ace almost got away last time they're gonna reinforce their defenses even more, like even if we did manage to sneak in get her out and escape it would not surprise me 1 bit if they have like implanted a bomb in her or given her somekind of poison that'll kill her anyway
>>5532030Well lets see, off the top of my head: Silver can manipulate sound, and make things very very quiet. We have a tunneling expert in Dexter, and a small nation of people used to transporting things underwater. And also crabs who eat seastone. But yea on the one hand it does sound like them...If they assumed Silver would do some sneaky shit. Silver is not famous for doing sneaky shit, despite evidence to the contrary, he is known for leaving big heaping piles of corpses laying aboutAnd that's not going into the " sidestep the Marines by kidnapping world nobles and ransoming them back to the people who give the marines their orders" from the previous thread.
>>5532033I mean i'd say silvers most famous act of waiting til the marines were busy and then going and instigating a slaughter in mariejoi is pretty sneaky
>>5531998>>5532005>>Yes. Call everyone.>>Ok Clown, you're smarter then me. You got any ideas?Supporting. Clown's the only one here using her brain, might as well take advantage.
>>5532040That isn't sneaky, dat'z proppa brutal kunning dat iz.
Claun is smart>writing
>>5532046And the one who said "we need to be smart", might as well be a bit blithe while we can. >>5532040Yes, but they focus a lot less on that part and a lot more on the "Admiral banana-man and his nephew lopped his hand off so he went and instigated a slaughter in Mariejois" angleIn their mind they poked an animal and it bit back. So now they're poking us with a sharp stick and waiting for the, in their mind, inevitable assault
>>5532075the WG isn't like some hivemind, they don't all think the same, plus even if they do expect us to attack head on which i fully agree they do that in no way stops them locking her up tigh enough that the minute we even get within sight of her they're on our ass
>>5532078Gods no, but there are a select few people in charge... Most of whom do not think of Silver as a cunning man. They see him as a brutal mass-murderer who gets what he wants through violence, the threat of violence and the indecently overwhelming application of violence. Honestly and amusingly the lower ranked people, those who come to Outer Heaven or have friends who do probably have a less one sided idea of us.
>>5532078like its not like them preparing for a frontal assault prevents them from defending her or like as said b4 planting a bomb in her or something, the WG is big enough to do both
You take a deep breath and manage to rein in your emotions long enough to notice the uproar going on down amidst the plebeians."SHUT UP!"You roar and the brigands all quiet down."Continue Clown. You have my attention. I want to hear ideas since you're smarter than me.""Well it's not that simple. If you're willing to use every asset under your disposal then we may have options but not many. It's unfortunate but we'll be outnumbered and outgunned regardless.""So we don't fight fucking fair! I say we climb the Red Line again and paint it red with the blood of their dragons! That'll teach them!""A clever idea Bloodhair. If you didn't do it once already it may even work. They know it's within your capabilities to scale the mountain. They'll be prepared for it. The moment any one of their lookouts notices you they'll send a message to HQ to execute the convict. Not to mention that they probably already moved them somewhere safe. They've been quite diligent in ensuring a second accident can never happen.""But you know them, right?""I was undercover for the past two years. All I knew are rumors. And since I'm a security risk they probably changed those since my "resignation". So no, I don't think we can leverage the world nobles."She sighs."I'm afraid we have no way around actually dealing with the situation at hand.""Get to the point Clown!""The point is... how many people are you willing to sacrifice? Obviously one option is to gather up your allies and storm Marineford like Newgate did. But a frontal assault will be bloody. The Marines learned their lessons and with someone as paranoid as Sakazuki at the helm who knows how far they went with preparations this time?""And the others?""Our other options are similar in nature and scope. They all involve using the people under your disposal to serve as a distraction while we find an alternate way of rescuing Eliza D. Silver. Many will die, likely more than even in a frontal assault because we won't be diverting any firepower. But we may have a better chance of achieving our objective. I'm afraid we don't have other options.""There is one."Your hear someone speak up from outside your circle and as you turn you see a certain someone approaching."Crocodile.""Hello. It's me. You know, the person who's been in the Paramount War before. I came as fast as I could when I heard the news. Sorry for being late.""What do you want?""To be the voice of reason. There is another way. One you may not like. But it's crazy enough that it might just work. The threat of violence. Because there is one man who'd be more than happy to join in on this.""You can't mean-""Yes I do little government dog. I'm telling you to form an alliance with Kaido.">There is only one way. The only one that ever was. War>Fine. How do we rescue Eliza sneakily?>Inviting Kaido? Interesting...>Other?
>>5532093>Is there a reason we can't do all three? i go with a majority of our forces in a head on assault after getting kaidos help while a specially prepared team breaks her out?
>>5532099Like if silvers not at the front of any assault the WG is gonna get sus, and we get the kaido alliance so the frontal assault isn't just a sacrifice so the stealth team can get by and has an actual chance of success
>>5532093>>5532099>Is there a reason we can't do all three? i go with a majority of our forces in a head on assault after getting kaidos help while a specially prepared team breaks her out?I changed my mind, supporting this.
>>5532093Well if it isn't the man who can turn stone into sand. I do wonder if he, if delivered to the rock underneath Marineford, he and/or Dexter couldn't dig their way up... Or hell, just cut the foundation and tip the island over. That'd be fun.>Inviting Kaido? Interesting...>Fine. How do we rescue Eliza sneakily?War can come after, and let's be honest here. If I remember that scene properly Silver couldn't give half a shit about the people currently sailing around around with our flag, with the sole exception of the Charlottes. "Impress the stupid people with numbers" was the quote I think.Tho it could be cool to meet some standouts.
>>5532112I mean we need to go the war to get a kaido alliance, like no shot kaido would agree to fight the WG himself while we break her out, it'd look like a big coward move to him, so we need to go to war to get kaido on our side in the first play
>>5532093>Inviting Kaido? Interesting...
>>5532114Yea, it'd be an absolute pirate move to disrespect an alliance like that.
>>5532093>Inviting Kaido? Interesting...We may just be able to topple the world government right here and fucking now if that's the caseAlso, welcome back Spooks! I've missed this little quest!
>>5532093>>Inviting Kaido? Interesting...
Well it looks like there are many ideas of doing many things at once... most involves KaidoOh dear>writing>>5532123I'm glad to hear that. Though after 2 months I do feel a bit rusty
"Kaido? How do I do that?""With this."Crocodile pulls out a den den mushi from his cloak and presents it to you."And just why do you have that?""Please. Even Big Mom had a line that directly connected her to Kaido. Of course she never used it, but she had it. It's more surprising that you don't. Now are you willing to take it or not?"Without paying Crocodile too much attention you snatch the snail from him and start the call. The henchman that picked up doesn't hesitate bringing the snail to his master but by the sound of it Kaido is not in the best condition right now."Whassat? Who told you you can bother me?!""Kaido.""Hmmm? W-Who?""It's me. Silver.""SILVER?! YOU PISSANT! I'LL KILL YOU FOR WHAT YOU DID TO LINLIN! YOU HEAR ME?! YOU'RE A DEAD MAN! DEAD!""Shut up and listen. I got an offer to make.""HUUUUH? Who the blazes do you think you are?! You think you can just kill Linlin and act like you're my equal is that it? I won't have it! When I get my hands on your throat I'll show the whole world just who you really are!""Eliza was captured by the marines. And I'm going to war. Are you in or not?"Looking down at the transponder snail you see its grimace turn into a grin and its clouded eyes becoming sharp as a razors edge."Heheeee. Well why didn't you start with that? War you say? When?""She's scheduled for execution in a week. So before that.""Uuuuh. Sounds great. One small issue though. That BASTARD Red Hair. I'm 90% sure that son of a cheap whore will try to cuck me out of fun again.""Then come now before he could stop you.""Ooooh. That's smart. Uh. But what about my territories? Hic. Can't leave 'em alone.""I don't care. If you wanna come then handle it somehow. Otherwise I'll do it myself!""No! No. I'll handle it. QUEEN! I want a plague released now! No I don't care about the festival! I want Wano nice and docile while I'm out you hear me?!"Loudly burping Kaido returns to you."Alright. It's done. I-I'm heading out now. But now that you got me interested you best deliver you son of a bitch!""We will. Now come."CLICK."It's done."A bead of sweat rolls down Crocodiles forehead."How the hell did that work?""If you were not a pansy you'd know. Now Clown. Is that enough of a distraction for you?""E-Erm... yes. I believe that is sufficient.""Good. I give you four days before we set out. Figure out a plan and handle it. Until then nobody can disturb me. That includes you Nutmeg!"
>>5532196>holy shit he just mobilized kaido fucking effortlesslyt. everyone
You withdraw to your private room in Outer Heaven and lock the door, as well as the voice of anyone that tries to reach you. Right now you don't feel like socializing with anyone. In fact the only thing you want to do is focus on your hate and rage, making sure the flame doesn't die out as long as you need it. That is until Kaido arrives two days later because he apparently got lost on the way here in his drunken stupor."Silver! SILVER! Open up you little shit!"For the first time you leave your solitude to meet the big fella outside."What do you want Kaido?""You got some balls having your men pester me! What, are you too good to greet me yourself?""I'm busy.""I see that. But understand that I'm not your lackey! You piss me off and I'm killing you first before I move on to fight the government myself. Not to save Eliza mind you-"You jump up and smack him in the face. After a quick burst of air explodes from the impact zone you land back on the ground and glare at him."Threaten me all you like. But if Eliza gets hurt because of you I'm killing you!"He starts rubbing his cheek and gives you a dismissing look."As I thought. Weak. I came to discuss this but it seems like I got all the answers I need. You lack hate boy. And no, what you're feeling now isn't hate. It's fear. You're nothing but a boy who's scared that his mommy is gonna get hurt. And you are right to be. If you don't manage to harness your rage and disdain to dismantle the world with it you won't be able to do a thing.""Do I have to remind you what happened to Big Mom?""You don't have to. You're strong. No question about that. You are one of the strongest people in the world now. But that's it and a lot of those will be there where we're going. There are and were people bigger and stronger than you that all failed in the end. I guess my question is, will this be a real war? Or will you just be holding me back?""You can have your war Kaido. I'm going to get Eliza back.""And all this time I thought you got balls kid. Turns out you're just stupid. Whatever Eliza saw in you is beyond me. But fine. So long as you don't get in my way I'll have my fun. But I see you failing or running away and I'm killing you myself as a courtesy for Linlin. You got that?""I won't. Now get lost. Eat and drink your fill today. Tomorrow we're leaving.""Worororo! Good!"
And this is where I must end things unfortunately. I haven't gotten back into the groove yet and I got stuff to do tomorrow.But in exchange I'll post the updated social links and character sheet tomorrowHope that'll make up for itAnyway thanks for playing and have a good night. We'll continue on Wednesday most likely
>>5532277>Kaido is giving us the Itachi quotenow we gotta kill him
>>5532281Thanks for running Spooks! It's good to have you back.That's a interesting point from Kaido tho, "You're strong but brute force isn't going to cut it" He, like everyone else, just sees the rapid little monster. >>5532295I'm sure he'd appreciate it.
>>5532299he didn't say anything like brute force isn't gonna cut it though, he's saying that we should be going there with the intent to kill and destroy the WG not save eliza, that should just be a side objective of declaring war to going there and killing them
>>5532311"You are strong but bigger and stronger then you have tried and failed" Sounds to me like he's saying just brute force isn't going to be enough. He should know, he's the biggest and strongest.
>>5532317i mean im taking that to mean he's saying we lack conviction, like as he said we're going to war not because we want to destroy them but because we want to save eliza and to kaido thats weakness, kaidos not the guy to preach being smart, to him powers tied to will and as far as he's concerned we're lacking the will to fight rn
>>5532295He ain't wrong thoughFeels to me like silver's turning bitchmade right about nowWe made our outer heaven, and now we need to become a demon.In silver's case, not just a force of nature but a vengeful god who strikes down the wicked with an even greater evil.
>>5532322>>5532325you know what's gotta happen right. something's got to give
>>5532330personally think elizas gonna die, like just cannot imagine us being able to save her at all, i genuinely believe the WG would have implanted a bomb into her already or something more sophisticated from vegapunk, and of course if eliza dies big War is gonna happen, hell we might save her and then kaido kills her to start the biggest war in history between him, silver and the WG since thats his dream
>>5532334>Eliza's gonna dieIt's totally possible, and would probably result in the darkest timeline.Silver might genuinely go on a rampage that never ends, turning the whole world into some apocalyptic hellscape where children grow up in caves fearing the sky.
>>5532352If Eliza dies Silver is probably awakening on the spot from sheer rage and despair.
>>5532424i mean we've already awakened, unless he gets so mad get goes super awakening 2 lol
>>5532475>have you ever been so pissed off your awkening awakensAwoke squared.
>>5532475I thought Silver was on the edge?
>>5532475We Awaken, Cope And Seethe, but we turn into Gabriel from Ultrakill. Then burn the world into a bloody asshole.
>>5532574did you not read the last two threads?
>>5532714Apparently not, it clearly slipped my mind.
>>5532581If only we were as eloquent as Gabriel. I don't think Silver even knows the word "insignificant" exists.
>>5532581Really? Generic angel dude? My man we look a lot closer to pic related, except bigger and more ripped. And also fire and black mist. Silver's Kain is a fucking nightmare kaiju
Okay I promised and I deliveredhttps://docs.google.com/document/d/1KK1Ji2aj1z1HhARPE3NobTLZv_CHMDRC/edit?usp=sharing&ouid=117102051304964808901&rtpof=true&sd=trueHere's the new Social Link.Please do note that the formatting broke when I moved the text from a file to Drive so if you find anything that shouldn't be there, please feel free to ping me.Also on top of that when I was making this I managed to nuke the file at one point because I was a retard while I was trying to free up storage space. So if you feel like I forgot to put something back in you may also scream at meThe character sheet will have to wait sadly...
>>5531868WE'RE FUCKING BACK LET'S GOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!Shit is going down and I couldn't be more hyped. Also based Kaido calling out Silver, he really needs to get his shit together if he wants to save his mom.>>5532334I hope she doesn't since, if she does, I can't see Silver doing anything but embarking on a crusade to destroy the marines. Gruesomely killing everyone he sees as responsible for her death and not resting until it is done.>>5533507Do the rank and file marines not have an opinion on what their leadership has done and on the possibility of going against Silver? I'd be feeling like a guardsman being sent off to fight a WAAAGH!
>>5532475Silver kinda reminds me of Ulquiorra from Bleach. Bat theme, Nihilism theme, and a second release (if this is what's cooking)Lydia said Silver is coming closer and closer to an early grave, but maybe that grave is just a beginning. The Death Tarot card is the signal of something ending, so another chapter can begin.
>>5535135>Silver is nihilisticAlright you're gonna have to explain that one Anon cause I really don't get it.
>>5535340intelligent and with a wicked sense of humor
Continuation likely to happen tomorrow
>>5535364lol>>5535340Maybe not hard nihilism, buy when you are the bottom of the rung and rules don't really matter, you operate and live with what you're given. He's the epitome of nihilism to the regular onlooker (doesn't give a shit about right or wrong), but what's deeper inside him is what brings out his second release that's hidden from plain sight. If the World Government is Thesis, he's Antithesis.He wouldn't be an existential nihilist though. Very much the opposite. Which really leads to what he's about. Or at least what I can see.
>>5536258But he does care about right or wrong... his own right or wrong. Silver values life (just not his enemies), freedom, family, and strength. he by no way believes that life is meaningless.
>>5536258Anarchism is not nihilism my guy.
>>5536351You can believe that life holds no inherent without believing it has no meaning at all.That is, the meaning that each and every person gives something. The meaning that they hold in their own heart, which is different for everyone.Yes, life is meaningless. The wider universe doesn't care whether you live or die, but a person might. Because you mean something to them, even if nobody and nothing else cares.And even if nobody on earth loves or cares about you, you still have the meaning you give to yourself.Whether it's positive or negative, that's something that can never be taken away from you. No matter what happens outside of your own control, so long as you live you are the one who decides your own worth and your fate.
Kaidos words leave you unbothered. Nothing he can say or do could make you falter. And by keeping his stomach full and thirst quenched you can keep his mouth shut so he doesn't bother you either. But the day eventually comes when you must keep him sober. And so the dragon is kept placated until the day he's needed which arrives all too soon. In these past four days heaps of iron and various other metals have been stripped from wherever you could find them, melted down and forged into weapons and ammunition. Outer Heavens furnaces managed to churn out enough arms to make a small warmongering nation blush. And you intend to unleash all of it on your enemies.After gathering everyone in the central hall you start the preparations before the departure. This however did not please Kaido. Not one bit."What are we wasting time for? We should be on our way to Marineford already!""We're waiting for the plan idiot.""Plan?! The only plan we need is charging head-first into combat and not stopping until there is nothing left of the place! I get wanting to amass your forces but this? Such a disappointment.""You'll get what you want Kaido. But I will have Eliza out of there. If you get in my way I'm killing you first!""Oh? You think you got what it takes? Worororor! Go ahead! Give it a try!"As sparks start flying off between the two of you Pepe steps up and raises her hands."Save your energy for the enemy. If you want to you can kill each other later.""HMPH! FINE!""HMPH! FINE!""Now then, allow me to illustrate the plan. Please turn your attention upwards."Clown then has the lights of the island turned off and using a projector snail she displays her hand drawn plan on the ceiling."As you may be aware, we'll be walking head first into a trap. We don't know how much resistance we'll encounter but it will be immense judging by the displays of the Navy during the Summit War and the lessons they must've learnt from it. Most likely the place will be heavily trapped so we advise caution. Unfortunately because the Marines will be expecting a large fleet we don't have too many options regarding tactics, as they'll be suspicious unless we show up with a full fleet.""GET ON WITH IT!"
"Hmph. Thankfully we're not totally out of options. Because of our large numbers they won't notice if one or two people are absent from the conflict. Which is why a small team lead by Murray will approach the island from the sea floor where Dexter will tunnel his way to the execution platform and once there Lyda will use her devil fruit power to teleport out of there safely.""If that's what you're planning then why not send me?"Crocodile asks almost mockingly."The mink is an expert geologist. He can safely dig through the soil without fear of it all collapsing, which your indiscriminate desiccation might cause.""Damn Cipher Pol bitch is well informed...""As for the actual attack itself we already put in motion several plans over the last four days. Those that they concern already know about it. The rest are free to act as they see fit. Each crew knows what they are good at and it's not like pirates can be coordinated that much anyway. But remember two things. One, give way to us. You don't want to get stuck between the silvers and the navy. And two, the marines won't shy away from using any tactics against you. So no matter what they say, assume every word of theirs to be a lie. They did convert pirates during the Summit War and will try to do so again."It may not be the most complex and detailed of battle plans but the pirates don't seem to mind. Many of them are just eager to get started already as they yearn for some due payback against the marines. Their bravery though commendable it's misguided. They believe that with not one but two Emperors on their side there is no conceivable way for them to loose. Little do they realize that this little fact does not guarantee their survival. One could argue it doesn't necessarily guarantee victory either but you refuse to acknowledge that. You will win. You have to.As the crowd quickly disperses with each pirate heading for their own ship to prepare for setting sail someone nervously dares to approach you."Erm S-Silver? I know this isn't the best time but-""Sandersonia... Are you coming or not?""That's what I wanted to talk about. I'm truly sorry and I want to help, I really do but-""But?""But I can't jeopardize my sister like that.""Fine. One less person to get in my way."She looks stunned. She barely recognizes the way you act. However she gets a hold of herself and steels her resolve."That's not all! The government most definitely called Hancock to show up at Marineford. I just.. I need to make sure you know that she is allied to you. Please... don't hurt my sister!">Fine...>Let me make something clear. Anyone who tries to stop me is my enemy.>Other?
>>5536908>>Fine...Shouldn't be that hard to avoid her.
>I'll give you a chance to get her out, but she better stay out of the way.
>>5536908If i see her i'll tell her to focus on the fodder and stay out the way, if she doesn't listen all bets are off
>>5536908>Fine... but she better stay out of my way!If it was "don't kill her" then it would be fine on it's own but "don't hurt her"?
>>5536950I mean hurting boa would probably be the same as killing her in this battle, if shes hurt and weakened enough far to high a chance of someone else ganking her once we've moved on, even if she was still conscious
>>5536956Then that's on them, not Silver. Though I think Boa is wise enough to not get in his way anyway.
>>5536962Yeah but sandersonia knows full well if we hurt boa chances are shes dead anyway even if she gets us to agree not to kill her, so of course she'll ask us not to hurt her at all
Despite being massively pissed off Silver is still reasonable to a degree>writing
Does boa technically count as family in silvers mind already? since we plan to marry sandersonia which would make her our sister-in law, or will silver only start thinking that way p[ost wedding?
>>5536975Not yet. And so far she's under the tag [Ally] due to the deal she has with Silver
"Fine. But she better get out of my way when I get there."The Boa girl sighs with relief, knowing that her sister though prideful is not stupid. So her safety is at least guaranteed this way. And she's glad that the man she holds in such high regards hasn't lost his mind like she thought."Thank you! Thank you so much!"You decide to leave her be as she breaks down but she tugs on your coat as you leave and pulls you back for a moment."Silver... do take care of yourself!""Heh. Don't worry!"Nutmeg speaks up as she passes by. "If he does anything stupid we'll be there to take care of him. That's our job after all!"This friendly exchange infuriates Kaido who seems to be reaching his limits."Get it over with already! We got a war to wage!""Yes."You concur."Listen up scum of Outer Heaven! Set sails! We go to Marineford!""YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!"The makeshift army you gathered up erupts in a jubilant roar, eager to finally get started with the bloodshed. Around fifty or so ships, all carrying different jolly rogers leave the docks of the island and like a pack of ravenous wolves they all move, following the scent of war carried by ill winds. It also helps that there were a few marines who were not supposed to be at Outer Heaven but were anyway the day of the announcement and they were more than eager to point you in the direction of New Marineford in exchange for letting them keep all their limbs.Most of the captains need not be in touch with you directly. The only orders they need are "charge", "stay" and "retreat", with the last one being optional. People like Crocodile or other prominent pirates do have a transponder snail on through which you keep in touch with them for the time being. But the moment you enter combat that will be promptly discarded."Well this is quite a sight. A small armada of the most notorious pirates moving as one. Though the black smoke is a bit garish for my tastes."Crocodile chimes in."Keep your eyes focused on the waters ahead of us. Who knows what kind of traps they set for us.""Whoah. As intense as expected from the new leader of the Big Mom Pirates. You should relax. The fish-men who decided to join us are combing the waters for any mines or the like.""Hmmm. I'm impressed Silver managed to get them to join.""He didn't. They just showed up on their own with a small fleet. Apparently building ships and piracy are in vogue at Fish-man Island for some reason."At this you pick up the snail and roar into it."Enough chit chat!"
The fleet continues to sail at breakneck speed and within one day you start seeing a white dot on the horizon which steadily swells into the massive fortress that is the headquarters of the marines. They couldn't have made it any less subtle if they wanted it as it has two massive white arches in the shape of the marines insignia. Crocodile cheerfully opens the comms again."Well there you have it folks. Former marine base G-1, now the new heart and soul of the Marines. You see that bridge to the side? That connects them straight to the Red Line and the royal forces of the World Government.""Interesting. Meaning they could theoretically receive reinforcements continuously. I'll direct our family to destroy it if you'll give the word Silver.""Hah. Ridiculous. What you'd do with a whole fleet I can do it with one hand. Watch!""What did you say?"The various captains on the comm channels start arguing with each other while you turn your attention to the marine base. Besides the marble colored walls you see a sea of white at the base of the building. The thousands upon thousands of men and women who lined up to willingly put themselves between you and your goal. You wonder if they'll be equally as eager to die for their ideals."Worororo! Makes the hair on your back stand up, doesn't it? Go on! Drink it in! This is the last moment of serenity you'll have for a while!"You wonder about that and how it must've felt for Whitebeard when he did the same. Did he care? Did he feel threatened? Or did he look at them with as much contempt as you did? If you recall the stories he sent his war declaration in the form of a tsunami. Yes. An occasion like this deserves a grandiose opening.>Put some fear in their hearts with a display of power>Start shouting long enough that they all hear you>A simple "Attack!" will suffice>Other?

"Well? Aren't you going to address them?"Kaido asks you in a mocking tone."No. The only exchange I want is their surrender. Now stand aside.""Huh?""You're in my spotlight."https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V9_ZpqfqHFIRaising your hand to the sky you shoot up a stream of fine black hair which spreads out in a circle and blankets the sky. As the dark filaments flow they blot out a sun, creating a penumbra like during the eclipse. You can feel the anxiety of the marines rise even from miles away as the see the sun dimming before their very eyes and a low thunder like rumble reverberates in their ears. Even the pirates standing by your side seem to be unnerved by what's their first real time experiencing your unbridled devil fruit power, with many of them questioning if you're really a zoan. Undoubtedly the marines are experiencing similar trials of faith with the added difficulty of standing on the wrong side.Your ears tune in on their terrified ramblings and the voice of their superiors trying to keep the morale of their troops up by any means necessary."It's just a trick! He's trying to shake you up! But a marine knows no fear! We fight for justice! Remember that!"But the lowest ranking soldiers are not really reassured by those words when they just realized that their superiors sent them out basically to die. However there is one small ray of light shining in the darkness. Literally. A man sized ball of light flies up to the sky below your shroud and illuminates the part of the island where the soldiers have made their stand. Courtesy of Kizaru."Worororo. That didn't work out quite like you intended! Now it looks like they have god himself on their side!""Idiot.""Huh?""What do you think casts shadows?"You take out your transponder snail and speak into it."The first shot is mine. You may come after I had my turn."And you hang up.Moments later the many officers of the navy that had their composure broken look up at the sky filled with hope and determination, knowing that no matter how bad or dark things might get there will always be a light shining in the darkness, and that justice will triumph over evil. And how right they are. For victory itself is just. A lesson they learn quickly as you swoop across the battlefield and scatter their ball of light with a well placed sword swing and replace it with the black clouds trailing behind you.Not wasting any time observing the terrified and gawking marines you land at the very edge of the island and stare down the army gathered in front of you."Give Eliza back!"Is the first and last thing you say to them.>Let indiscriminate slaughter begin>Ignore the peons and start taking out the higher ranking ones.

>>5537077>Take out Kizaru first
>>5537077>>Let indiscriminate slaughter beginCan't have fodder hitting our back while we're fighting the admirals
>>5537077 It's not like fodder could scratch Silver. Better to hit the higher tiers.
>>5537077>Ignore the peons and start taking out the higher ranking ones. Without those the rest will break
>Take out Kizaru firstYeah, get rid of the lightning bruiser first, and blot out their sunlight. That will actually be good, fact he helped capture Eliza not-with-standing
>>5537077>Ignore the peons and start taking out the higher-ranking ones. Without those, the rest will break
>>5537077>Take out Kizaru firstIf we can take him out then it breaks the marines more than hitting the vice admirals.
Hmm, so who will Kaido fight then? I honestly think he will either take on Admirals, Warlord or Seraphim since that is the minimum to hold him down.Brings to mind, did any of his followers come with or he by himself? Cause I can see King supporting him through this given how big this is.
>>5537103Sengoku or garp might take him on
>>5537105Pretty sure Sengoku is staying the fuck out of this War
>>5537103Only Kaido. He left everyone to keep Wano in check
>>5537108Heh, Goofy will be pissed we stole his thunder.Wonder if they can win.
>>5537107I mean he took on silver during the prisoner transport, plus his retirement is really only in name so he's 100% here, and sengokus not so heartless as to just sit back while innocent marines get slaughtered for no reason, like don't expect him to do much but can 100% see him keeping kaido busy just so kaido doesn't end up slaughtering the lower ranks
>>5537109on this note where was the wano arc when kaido left? like was luffy just arriving or like is this after kaido and luffys first fight?
>>5537112Probs somewhere in between, point is, Luffy is not getting that fight.I wonder if Kaido will return to a overthrown army, or if Queen's gas did all the work.
>Marines are organized and well disciplined. That is their strength.>Silver can manipulate soundWould be a bloody shame if orders wouldn't be heard, or if "attack" very accidentally became "pull back"Just a thought for when things get interesting.>Ignore the peons and start taking out the higher ranking ones. Without those the rest will breakThe chaff is just that, and I'd we dive for the admirals wel just be surrounded and fucked

So, guessing those Officers are a blood mist
"Y-You're kidding me! We're supposed to fight an Emperor?!""I-I wanna go home!""Someone save us!"The pitiful cries of the weaklings does nothing but irritates your ears. You have half a mind about educating these fools, since they aren't "supposed" to fight an Emperor. They're supposed to die to you and everyone knows that. But thankfully you're saved from the tedium of teaching the chaff a lesson by one of their commanding officers."Everyone! Stand aside!"A man jumps out of the crowd."Commander T Bone!""Leave facing such monsters to us! Your job is to make sure we're not surrounded and overwhelmed! But more importantly than that your foremost duty is to survive! For you are the future of the Marines!""COMMANDER!""Now face me Emperor! Let me show you Justice!"He leaps forward and swings his sword down on your shoulder. But instead of blood it's shards of metal that scatter in the air as you swing your hand and smack his sword aside whilst vibrating your body. First his weapon shatters, then his helmet dents and finally his face distorts as your knuckles dig into his cheek. He almost gets sent flying but you grab his tattered cape and pull him back by it so you can take hold of his head and smash him in the ground. The earth shakes as T Bone spits up blood on the impact and rocks get upturned all around you. All those who managed to keep their balance and not fall due to the shifting ground look in horror as their commander sinks deeper into the ground after clearly loosing consciousness.Someone tries to get these terrified soldiers back in order but once your ears pick up his determined voice you make your way to him."Shakushi."His mouth is shut immediately by your grasping hand and he just barely has enough time to register what happened to him before you toss him in the sky before shooting a bullet after him to turn him into a very messy fireworks display. At this point survival instinct takes over the marines and they either try to run away or fight back but even these attempts of theirs are so pathetic you don't even bother acknowledging their assault and simply move out of the way of their attacks in search of worthier prey. Searching for commanding officers you run through the crowd unnoticed, save for the chill of the grave that runs across the back of the men you pass by. Only after the third guy that you got rid of in such a manner does someone worthy of your attention try to stop you.Onigumo jumps into the fray with his spider fruit activated and he shoots some webbing at you to try and impede your movement."CAVALIER! I FINALLY GOT YOU! It's time to pay for your crimes against the world!"
Heh, guess it time to repeat a little history~~~
>>5537192rip his dick off and feed it back to him
>>5537209It just wouldn't be this quest without cannibalism popping up at important moments like this
last time we sterilized him, now we're gonna rearange his genitals before assisting him with this suicide he chose
Hmm, if the masses of the Navy were to be killed, what would happen?Like, say everyone below Vice Admiral died, that would be at most 100 Officers who could maybe each destroy an Island.What would WG do? Force Nations too commit more manpower? Would they be still as effective when they have to spread everyone thinly?
>>5537219The world gets hit with an even bigger draft than the one in the time skip
"Now FIRE!"Onigumo declares and the giant cannons built into the first defensive wall of the fort take aim at you. Even the fact that they are willing to blow their own people up just to get a shot at you fails to make you care. Before the cannonballs could do anything you grab hold of the thread connecting your to him and pull him towards you. The moment you get your hands on his actual body you sprout wings and take off flying so fast that a few of the marines around you are briefly flung in the air with you.Onigumo screams as you carry him through the air and smash him into the massive cannonballs, detonating them mid flight. The explosions seem to do a number on him as he ceases shrieking and only lets out pained gasps after that. Unfortunately for him that's not where his troubles end as you continue carrying him into the fortified wall. And through it. And through the ammo depots within until enough of them detonate to blow a massive hole in the structure.When you're done Onigumo lies on a pile of charred black bricks with only the barest spark of life left within him."Cough. Y-You think this is enough to stop us? Y-You can punch me in the dick, break every bone in my body. But my spirit will never die! Justice will prevail! We will never stop, never rest! As long as evil like you exists there will be good men who'll try to destroy it! Remember that Cavalier! This will never be ov-"Onigumo can't really finish his final sentence as he sees you grabbing the broken remains of the giant cannon that you smashed and lift it over him. With a high jump you throw down the weapon hard enough to not only utterly crush the marine but the remains of the wall that it was embedded in, opening a perfect hole through which the ground forces can pour into the inner area.Sadly the marines, shocked as they are by this don't really have time to gawk at this breach in their defenses as the world around them lights on fire."WORORORORO! DO YOU MAGGOTS THINK YOU HAVE THE LUXURY TO TURN AWAY?! THIS IS A WAR!"Kaido has started his assault and he's already burning the troops and the ground they stand on into nothing but soot. The rest of your pirate allies have also reached dry land and they are now engaging the massively terrified marines on foot.Spreading your wings you fly high in the air to survey the battlefield and after that you turn around to look deep in the eyes of Akainu. The war has officially started.
And that is it for today. On the weekend we shall resume with something a bit "meatier"Until then have a good night
Hmmm, so who we go for next? Admiral? Or keep up with the small fry?
>>5537231Night Spooks and thanks for running!
>>5537232If we are attacking an admiral we should gather some of our crew.
>>5537244I mean, we are Yonko tier now.Admirals aren't small fry, but we can still comfortably knock them down now.
>>5537225Damn son, it's almost like a broken, half-dead old man doesn't have quite the same spunk as two emperors in their primeYou might have fucked up just nowAlso, i think onigumo might actually be dead for real this time.And i'm okay with that, because he doesn't know when to shut the fuck up.
>>5537281I kinda want to see him survive out of spite and annoy the shit out of Silver. Like a Marine Kaido.
>>5537297he's not the marine version of kaido he's a faggot and i hope silver turned him into a red smear
>>5537300Obviously he wouldn't be Kaido, he'd just be Kaido style depressed.
>>5537301depressed into a pancake
>>5537225It's pretty amusing that while Silver is in "no-nonsense" mode Kaido acts like a giddy murderhobo.
>>5537278It's easy to forget that the admirals can fight the emperors just fine, especially kizaru who beat Eliza without any wounds.
>>5537393Well if Kaido isn't in giddy murderhobo mode, he's a cripplingly depressive drunk
>>5537394Not really, Green Bull ran away in terror from Shanks, outright admitted he couldn't defeat Kaido, and and exhausted Whitebeard handed Akainu his ass for their fight, even if the magma dick got some good hits in.Admirals are powerful, but Yonko are without a doubt a tier above them.
>>5537397i personally put admirals between like yonkos right hand and the yonkos themselves, and if the WG was ever gonna seriously assault an emperor they'd want atleast 2 admirals vs the yonko, if not all 3 for a near guaranteed kill
>>5537413Thats more accurate, but I would imagine 2/3 of those Admirals would die in the process
>>5537397Using Whitebeard as a metric just isn't fair. Imagine having super tuberculosis-cancer-aids and being 70 years old yet people still piss themselves at just your name. And not just any people, but people who are renowned for their own strength as well. That guy was just built different.
>>5537442not just 70, but a 70 year old pirate of all thingsas we all know, the healthiest of professions
>>5537436hmm i wouldn't say so personally, like i think all 3 admirals vs a yonko ends up with the admirals winning with no deaths, and would actually say the same for a 2 admirals vs a yonko match, though in the latter scenario its because if the yonko manages to kill 1 of the admirals the other admiral probably isn't long for the world, so its either both survive or neither
>>5537457Plus on the admiral strength debate in regards to the greenbull and shanks scenario personally to me i think greenbulls without a doubt the weakest admiral, like far from weak but wouldn't surprise me if like king in tip top condition could give him a fight even if he ultimately won, where as the other admirals could probably deal with him fairly easily as long as they stayed cautious and aware, hell if it turns out greenbull isn't awakened yet i would not be surprised
>>5537462... None of the Admirals are at all confirmed to be awakened.And Greenbull was taking on nearly all of the Akaza 9+Momonosuke and Shinobu and still doing well.Keep in mind, each one of them were on pair with Zoro pre-wano Timeskip, and the strongest of their generation.And if Kaido can take them all on, then Luffy, then Law and Zoro, then Yamato, then Luffy again, then Luffy awakened, I think he could take on 3 Admirals.
>>5536362>>5536351Nihilism is just a temporary period. Basically the grey period from Mary's precious little pal to Eliza's favorite boy. It's just a pupae period if that makes any sense. You guys are both right and both understand the character better than I. I'm just putting my 2 cents.>>5536366Basically what you said. It's just emptying the canvas for new growth.
Tomorrow I'll be aiming to continue againHope to see y'all there
>>5539351haha yeah we'll totally be there right guys
As all hell breaks loose you take a moment to survey the battlefield from atop the ruined wall. Marines and pirates engage each other wherever they can. But with being substantially outnumbered, maybe even a hundred to one, it's only by the presence of the heavy hitters that your smaller forces can stay in the game. It's a good thing that those heavy hitters are all worth a small army all on their own. Most ranged firepower, including artillery is aimed at the titanic dragon floating around the place and burning everyone in sight with his explosive breath. Kaido seems to be having the time of his life whilst the Navy sufficiently shat its collective pants at his presence.But big blue and angry is not the only one worth noting. Sandstorms, hails of sharp glass, meathooks sprouting from the ground, storms of arrows and waves of poison are just a few of the walking natural disasters that are decimating the ranks of the marines. Still it never hurts to hit just a bit harder and with the superior numbers of the enemy it's justified to use everything at your disposal. With a sharp whistle that echoes over the battlefield you give the order for the drop.The black shroud over the island parts in places as massive objects pass through its veil one by one. Marines look up and start screaming once they notice the looming shadows over them growing thicker. Unfortunately due to the tight formation they're in they are unable to move out of the way before the sky ships fall on them and disgorge even more men to deal with. Deep striking so far behind enemy lines is usually a very bad idea but with everything already going on the marines have quite a bit of trouble surrounding these new arrivals as their command structure and morale falls apart. This in turn takes pressure off of the front line which can start pushing inward even harder.Looks like the plan to hit the enemy as quick and hard as possible is working as intended. Now you just need to keep up the pressure. Turning around you look inward where there are more walls and plenty of cannons mounted on them. What's more troubling is that there is a substantial increase in the quality of the troops there. Looks like they really did set out the lower ranking troops to soften you up first. What's more is that they have more specialized equipment as well, bigger and better guns, armor, swords and they even have Pacifistae under their disposal.But there is still no signs of Eliza anywhere.>Maybe you just haven't caused enough damage yet (Keep charging forward and through the enemy)>These fortifications are in the way. Time to cause some property damage>Let's regroup with your other forces. It'd be bad to get cornered now>Other?
>>5540260>Start interfering with the marine command structureas long as we get to focus I'm sure Silver can use the Silver Style alongside Observation haki to change the orders marines give/receive to cause absolute havoc without getting directly physical. Telling sections to charge headlong into our crews instead of holding the fortifications and shooting them down, run to reinforce another part of the walls that arn't under attack so as to let those that are be weakened. That kind of thing. Let's use the marines discipline and command structure against the bastards!
>>5540260>>5540269>>Start interfering with the marine command structureChanged my mind, supporting this. Really work to Silver's advantages and ability with sound manipulation.
>>5540272Yea, sound and observation is kind of Silver's thing. And just imagine if the big guns hear Sakazuki shouting "Hold fire damnit!" or, well, they have shown themselves willing to fire on their own men if ordered to do so
>>5540260>>These fortifications are in the way. Time to cause some property damage
I wonder if elizas already dead, like the WG really has no reason to keep her alive at this point, like if ace had been killed at marineford whitebeard would have started a retreat, but with silver if they kill her he's not leaving until either he's dead himself or killed everyone else there
>>5540301I mean yea... But we didn't show up at the execution, but before it so she's probably still down in that blasted seastone cage
Pretty sure they also used Ace as a hostageLike, with Ace, Whitebeard couldn't let loose his big ones without killing AceBut when he died he decided to sink Marineford to the ground
>>5540305Yeah but they could have had her immediately killed the minute they knew we were heading out, like they couldn't do it b4 because if we somehow learnt of it one of our crew might have been able to deter us from coming, but since we were on the way the chances of us learning it is super low and even if we somehow did it'd make silver look super weak to amass a massive armada just to then pussy out at the last minute, like at marineford ace nearly got away, no way the WG is gonna risk that again, plus akainus in-charge nowadays so its definetly something he'd support
>>5540311Yeah but also plays into the retreat thing, since if WB crew stayed aswell hhe couldn't sink the island, so with ace dead he could order the retreat while he takes out the island
>>5540269>>5540272Well the write-in won>writingLet's see if Silver is clever enough to pull it off 3d10+5 best of 4

One more vote, let's see if we can beat out the already fantastic 30.
"What are you gawking at? Shoot him already!"As you survey the island the marine officers below bark orders at their men and it's just enough to shake up the men who were too caught up staring at a living legend. They take aim and fire their guns at you with intent to kill, enough to set off your alarms. Just in time as the projectile approaches you swat it away with the bones in the back of your hand and feel momentarily fatigued as you do so. Taking a good look at the projectile that got redirected you see that it's not a standard bullet but more like a long, thin stake made out of sea stone. A sea stone bullet. Clever."H-He didn't even use any haki to do that! What is he?"Even the officer in charge of the squad is taken aback by this."This is fubar! Iron marines! You're clear to engage!"Right after that several enemy soldiers wearing Black Metal armor start flying with a machine on their backs that shoots air downward to propel them. They charge you and use spears to fight you from a fair distance away. Even their weapons are made of the haki infused material down to the shaft. You're left with no choice but to draw Argent to parry their attacks. They are tough thanks to their shells so you can't just easily overwhelm them. But if you get bogged down fighting these guys you'll be worn down before you ever get close to Eliza. That just won't do.Suddenly you get a devious idea while dodging and weaving between spear thrusts and smirk as you look down. Extending your palm you send out white noise to drown out the officers orders, then attune your own voice to match his and fire it at the soldiers instead."OPEN FIRE!""B-But sir-""DO IT NOW! FOR JUSTICE!"That's all it took for them to swallow their conscience and they start shooting at you even though their friends are still engaged. The officer clearly doesn't like this and tries to call them morons but his voice doesn't reach them. And as the sea stone stakes come flying you grab one of the metal marines and pull him in the way of the stakes. Out of the two substances Sea Stone is the one that trumps the other. The projectiles embed themselves in the armor without necessarily hurting the marines but that's fine. With a simple bump from you they do cross over to the supple flesh inside and the marines blood starts gushing out from the holes.

I have to ask how can I roll here? Can someone give me the command that I should write
>>5540379Type "dice+3d10+5" in the Option field
You know, I realised, we're the real Goofy.We don't have some bullshit fruit to carry us, we brought ours up with creativity and our own determination.We took a normal fruit and became an Emperor with it, Duffy needed several handicaps to beat one.
You grab the half-dead guy and start using his armored body as a club to beat the others to submission with. Meanwhile the soldiers down are panicking as their "orders" backfired spectacularly. They look for their CO pleading for instructions, which you're all too eager to give."WE FUCKED UP! RUN! RETREAT!"The group you were manipulating makes a run for it, at which point you look at the one next to it and use the same trick on them."COWARDS! THEY'RE RUNNING AWAY! KILL THEM!"Naturally they are a bit hesitant, but when you tell them to do it for justice at least one or two of them slip up and when they do the rest soon follow suit and start gunning down their friends for insubordination.Confusion and panic sweeps through the enemy army as they see their allies shooting at each other on one side and a bunch of furious marines slaughtering them on the other. Nobody knows what's going on and whenever someone tries to take control of the situation you hear him yelling and hijack his orders to sow more discord. This has to be one of your best ideas so far and will definitely keep it for the future.With their formation broken the marines are easy pickings for you now and after finishing up the metal marines you fly down to the ground and spread your bat wings which unleash a thick miasma of black hair around you."You want this to end? GIVE BACK ELIZA!"A second flap sends out sparks which causes the saturated air to detonate and expand in a circle around you.But as you stand there with smug self satisfaction at a job well done your ears pick up something through the fire and the screams. It's a battlecry. Suddenly two metal bars cross the wall of flames and are about to clasp down on you. It's an ability you recognize so you jump up to avoid getting locked up by them. Turning into a tiny bat you start flying up and spot your attacker. It's the marine Hina, whom you had a few meetings with before. Her two goons are also standing right behind her, ready to throw down."You guys! Clear the area and make yourselves useful elsewhere! He's out of your league!""Yeah! You tell them Rear-Admiral! Now let's show everyone how it's done! Ready Jango!""Ow yeah! Ready as I'll ever be Fullbody! Let's dance!"You frown at these clowns.>No mercy.>Rough them up but don't kill them>Leave for greener pastures. They aren't worth fighting>Other?
>>5540398>>No mercy.The time for fucking around has passed. Now they shall all find out. Death.
>>5540398>No mercy.Not this time. The marines have goofed the ultimate goof.It's not enough to win. We have to make an example out of them. All of them.
>>5540398>>Rough them up but don't kill them
>"I'm not playing games this time, get the fuck out of my way or I'm killing all three of you" Last chance for these idiots, if refuse, no mercy We give them one chance and that is all
>>5540398>This has to be one of your best ideas so far and will definitely keep it for the future.>No mercy.Not in the mood for fucking about, there is to much at stake
>>5540398>No mercy.but I suppose they've earned >>5540403 a warning as thanks for all the times they've played with us.

>>5540438Holy shit fuck that one, we could have killed Hina.
>>5540443Kay, is she at least injured?And do we at least give them the last offer?
>>5540445If, and that is a big fucking if considering how the vote went: I think it's safe to say that they didn't take the offer. Eighteen kills.
You're the ones who don't want to fuck around, so don't be surprised if there is no fucking around to be had
"I'm not playing games anymore. Leave.""Funny thing! Neither are we! Ow! Now look into this circle and fall asleep so we can end this in a heartbeat! One! TWO! JANGO!"Jango musters all of his willpower so he can avert his eyes at the last moment as to not hypnotize himself."BOOYA! I DID IT FULLBODY! DID YOU SEE THAT? Fullbody?""U-U-U-Uh... i-it didn't work!""Wha-"Jango turns his head and sees you staring directly at it, as lucid as a minute ago. He opens his mouth to gasp but what comes out of it is a scream as he suddenly feels every finger on his right hand fall off past the first digit."AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!""JANGO!"Fullbody looks at his partner but he feels goosebumps all over his body as you flash over to him. He knows from the deepest recesses of his heart that he's in incredible danger. So he shouts and swings his arm without thinking. You catch him by the brass knuckle he always wears and it crumples from the vibrations like it's tinfoil. Then as his life flashes before his very eyes you stab him through the stomach. As Argent comes out his back you grab him by the shoulder and push him off."I warned you.""F-Fullbo-"But Jango couldn't finish calling out for his friend one final time before you sliced his throat open with the same sword you killed Fullbody with. The two partners who became lifelong friends through their shared love of dance fall together and at the very least can spend their final moments in each others company, as they knew they would eventually. They feel horrible but only because they know they'll be leaving the service of their beloved rear-admiral who'll have to face the monster that slew them alone.Hina and her remaining men watch this in horror, unable to cope with the death of their beloved comrades."Jango... Fullbody... you... IDIOOOOOOOTS!"Hina takes off full of hatred and determination."YOU'LL PAY FOR THAT YOU BASTAAARD!"As one of her feet touch the ground whilst sprinting you move over to her and kick her ankle hard enough not only to trip her but to shatter her bones before punching her in the gut so hard she's sent flying back into the arms of her men who had the presence of mind to catch her. But just barely. They stay there motionless as Hina is trying to catch her breath before they start running away."NO! LET ME GO! HE'S OVER THERE! I'LL KILL HIM! I SWEAR I'LL-""Rear Admiral! We can't stand up to that! We have to-"The tearful explanation is cut short as a snap of your finger blows the marines head off which prompts all the others to freeze in place as well. They look as you slowly walk up to them, a monster covered in the blood of their friends. They realize they can do nothing but weep.
"Cry. Beg. I told you! The only way this ends is if I get what I want! I will hack and chop and cleave until you GIVE ELIZA BACK! NOW COME AT ME OR DIE!"You raise Argent above your head, ready to end these miserable insects before you but get stopped by a punch to the face."White Blow!"The haki coated fist manages to make you flinch and pushes you back. But by the time the one that hit you closes the distance for a second attack you manage to bring your sword down to stop him. The white hair and the jitte are telltale signs of the popular vice-admiral Smoker. His body flows around you like smoke, signaling that he's a logia user."Get Hina out of here!"He shouts to the grunts as he holds you back."You scum! How dare you strike a woman like that?!""How dare you get in my way?"You blow fire on him but he disperses into smoke and attacks you from multiple angle at once with haki infused punches, as well as his sea stone tipped jitte. His body starts to cover a wide area around you which rouses your suspicion. Your ears twitch as you hear footsteps coming from behind. "Kiri Shigure!"For a moment you ignore Smoker to parry a slash aimed at your back just in time to sprout a wing and bat away Smokers jitte. The brief contact does weaken you but you quickly flap your wings to blow away the obtrusive smoke as well as the two marines who tried to catch you in a pincer attack."It doesn't matter what tricks you try or how many maggots come at me. I'll kill all of you.""What malice. He really is rotten to the core. That sword in his hand must be freed at all cost!""Huuuh? You stupid or something?"You raise your sword high and hold it with both hands."Argent! You can devour her."Pushing your armament into the blade you turn it black and start vibrating it so hard it makes a growling noise. You prepare to cleave her in two alongside everything behind her when you feel the vice-admiral attempting to stop you. Turning your whole body as you swing down you change the target of the slice to him. Smoker parts his logia body just in time to dodge the attack, which flies past him and obliterates a bastion on one of the walls. Not cut, not slice, destroy. It's reduced to nothing."Tch. Pesky logia.""WORORORORO!"You hear a laugh coming from above and see Kaido climbing over the wall you blew a hole in."Looks like you're really having fun now Silver! Hmmmm? What's that? Fighting two on one tsk tsk tsk? Well that's hardly fair wororororo! What do you say we "even the playing field" a little, huh?">Mind your own business! Get in my way and I'll kill you too Kaido!>Yeah. That'd be "fair", wouldn't it? Kekeke!>Other?
>>5540513>>Yeah. That'd be "fair", wouldn't it? Kekeke!if you insist
>>5540513>>Yeah. That'd be "fair", wouldn't it? Kekeke!No need to hoard all the fun amirite? This isn't about fairness, this is about wrecking their will to live and killing them until they give us what we want.
>Fair, you take the smoke boy, I'll take the nerd.
>>5540513>Yeah. That'd be "fair", wouldn't it? Kekeke! You can take on the smoky one.
>>5540513>>Yeah. That'd be "fair", wouldn't it? Kekeke!
Well. That is gonna hurt>writingNo dice needed. Treat this as an automatic crit with a roll of 35
>>5540557Well shit poor Smoker and uuuuuh.... sword fondler whatever her name is.
"Kekekeke! Yeah. That'd be "fair" wouldn't it Kaido?""Wororororo!"The great blue dragon disappears and the large, ogre of a man crashes down next to you. He readies his kanabo and starts cracking his neck in preparation for what's to come."This is gonna be fun!""You've... got to be kidding me!""Smoker... What should we do?"The two only realize now what a grave mistake they made. It's easy to forget you're an emperor, given how new and comparably short you are to the other giants. But now they face Kaido standing side by side with you. There is no ignoring the matter now and no way to escape the consequences of their actions either."So brat."Kaido addresses you, completely ignoring the two marines."Let me ask you a question. Can you hear it?""Hear what?""It. The voices. The voices of the world. Do you really hear them?""Of course.""Wororororo. Well then. Let me show you something. In exchange you can show if you're really worthy of the name Emperor!"He places one foot in front of the other and starts winding up his kanabo before pouring his heart and soul into it. It starts to crackle with raw force even before it's swung."Do you hear it boy?""Yeah.""Then let's do a combo, shall we?"You mimic his pose and raise Argent high in the air. Though you don't think you can quite match what Kaido is doing you can get close. Your arms swell as you activate the Dumahim and start vibrating Argent as much as you possibly can. Ripples form in the air as the waves flowing through and out of the sword distort the air around it like a mirage. The very ground shakes as you manage to sync up with Kaido and feel the name of the attack that's being etched into the world itself by the roaring force that's built up. Kaido takes a step forward and you do the same, swinging your respective weapons at the same time as you shout.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SKkizg0NuK8"HA-""-KAI!"The focused power of the two swings merges and surges forward with unprecedented speed. All that stands in its way gets obliterated. The mighty walls of Marineford turn to nothing as easily as the men standing before it. Not even their screams remain as the roar of the attack overwhelms even those. For one glorious moment it seems like nothing else but the attack exists as it drowns out all else. But even something of that magnitude must end once and it did at the hands of the marines.Standing at the foot of the fort itself with no defensive wall left to guard them are the three Admirals and the Fleet Admiral all with their hands raised. Above and behind them are the five warlords, four of them with crossed arms and one with a soiled pair of pants. Behind even them are the veterans of the marines. Garp, Sengoku and Tsuru."Oh myyyyyy. That was quite scary wasn't it? What are we going to do now Fleet Admiral?""Shut your mouth Kizaru. We follow the plan. Kaido may be a problem but if we succeed we take out not one but two Emperors in one day!"
>>5540618>The focused power of the two swings merges and surges forward with unprecedented speed. All that stands in its way gets obliterated. The mighty walls of Marineford turn to nothing as easily as the men standing before it. Not even their screams remain as the roar of the attack overwhelms even those.They're dead Jim. RIP Smoker and sword fondler.
>>5540618Man, we are killing all of the good marines.
>>5540628i mean we might just be killing all the marines, like legitimentally do not see silver retreating from this battle unless he kills atleast all the higher ups, like even if elizas saved i just see silver going "ok get her on a ship and back to outer heaven, i'll stay to make sure they don't follow" when really he just wants to take out his rage, so like unless we get sengoku'd aggain don't see how this ends til either side is dead
>>5540628Akainu's Absolute Justice is going to get a lot more popular, a lot more quickly after today's events.
>>5540642I feel he won't have the manpower too kill troops anymore
So who should we 1V1 here? either got to be kizaru or sengoku with his personal history with them, akainu cause he's the big man in charge, or garp with his past with eliza personally and just being the strongest marine
>>5540646I feel Kizaru, he is the reason she imprisoned, and arguably the heaviest hitter, since he can just snipe hundreds at speed of light or at a distance.So get the long range out of the way.
>>5540628>>5540642I mean what the fuck did they think was gonna happen? They think Silver is just a violent lunatic then kidnap and plan to execute his mom and then stand in his way? It's like thinking "Oh I punched a honeybadger and now it ate my face, why did it do that?"
"I hate to be the bearer of bad news but at this rate the only thing taken out will be the world itself.""Oy! Shut your mouth old man! Sakazuki got this under control! Right?"The Fleet Admiral speaks into his transponder snail."They breached the inner wall. We can't afford to wait any longer. Launch!"Kaido rears his head."Oy. You hear that boy?"He transforms into a dragon and flies up to take a look. His amusement is palpable."Wororororo. WORORORORORO! Now this is what I'm talking about! Akainu sure knows how to throw a party! Royal Guard, Cipher Pol, Pacifista, armies of government affiliated countries! I even see a few ships that belong to crews that operate in the Underworld! You must've pissed off a lot of people Silver! And... is that? WORORORORO! Is that a ship from Impel Down! No way! Looks like we're in quite a pickle!"Indeed you are. Just as Clown said you would. You take out your den den mushi and speak into it."They are trying to surround us. Don't let them.""FLEET-ADMIRAL! FLEET-ADMIRAL!""What?""Pirates! Pirates are coming out of the water! Fish-men and giant crabs are attacking us!"Akainu is smoldering from fury. Unfortunately you can't quite enjoy it as some people don't have the decency to just die quietly. The girl who was swinging her dinky little sword at you is screaming from pain."S-Smoker-san! Smoker-san! I... I can't feel my arm! Ah? AAAAAAH!"The moment she notices her right arm missing and her sword being broken beyond repair she starts screaming. She's so preoccupied by this that she doesn't notice that she also lost one of her eyes. She probably thinks it's due to missing her glasses.The more depressing, or funny depending on how you look at it, is that her superior bleeding out on top of him also escaped her attention. In the moment before impact Smoker must've thrown himself over her and used all of his haki to reinforce his back. Not to survive but so she could have a chance at it. His back looks like someone went over it with a cheese grater. His not dead, not yet anyway. But he's unconscious and bleeding out rapidly. After she's done screaming though she does notice the weight pressing down on her and she gets mad."S-Smoker... CAVALIEEEEER! I will NEVER FORGIVE YOU!"She throws Smoker off of her and picks up his jitte with her remaining arm."I'LL KILL YOU!"She's quite angry. Of course if she did the same to you it'd be perfectly justified. You tire of her. With a swat of your arm you knock the jitte off course before kicking her in the stomach and back over to the dying vice-admiral."Go ahead. Do it."After that taunt you ignore her as her maimed comrades drag her away alongside Smoker to safety. Then you turn your attention at the admirals."Now. Who's next?"
>>5540648I know, I just wish we were killing more of the assholes vice-admirals.
>>5540647Well talking less an IC logical reason and more who narratively would silver have the best fight against rn, and kizarus defiunetly up there since we've already fought and lost to him and he is the entire reason elizas currently captured but the thing with kizaru is its just that his heart ain't in it, to him its all nothing personal and only part of the job, which means he'd just respond to anything silver says with "ooooh scary" b4 continuing on the fight
And that's where I shall end things for today.I'm getting quite hungry and tired.But before I go I do have one question though.What would you prefer? Continuing the rampage or me showing what other fighters are up to through omakes?Please vote below>Silver stuff>Crew stuff
>>5540656>>Silver stuffRAMPAGEalso, nice run.
>>5540656>>Silver stuffWouldn't mind like maybe 1 omake showing what the major players on our side are up to but think it should just be like 1 fairly large one rather tan a few littler ones, and probably have it right b4 silver starts his fight with whoever we'll be fighting first
>>5540650>After that taunt you ignore her as her maimed comrades drag her away alongside Smoker to safety. Then you turn your attention at the admirals.Holy shit they lived. Horrifically injured, but they lived.>>5540656>>Crew stuffCrew stuff all the way. We've got the general gist of Silver fucking people up.
>>5540650hah, tashigi's injuries mirror our own
>>5540656>Silver stuffI'm loving this. It's the culmination of the whole navy and the world nobles simply not being able to leave silver the fuck alone.They just HAD to fuck with his mom. They couldn't just let him sit there quietly on his island, noooooo.And i'm sure. I'm 100% certain that they'll do something stupid like killing her.And the fallout with be absolutely catastrophic. Silver ain't gonna come back from that one.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rQiHzcdUPAU
>>5540704They tried leaving us alone tho. For years they kinda allowed Outer heaven to exist, just sending the occasional low ranking officer with some ships to attack us just so they were seen to do something.And what did we do with that reprieve? Turned ourselves into an Emperor and started a war against another of the major players (the underworld) meaning that leaving us alone did not work, at all, and if they continued to do so we'd just continue violently expanding
>>5541437Maybe they shouldn't be universally utterly vile bastards who run the slave trade and far worse shit. I don't feel bad that silver is gonna put the revolutionaries out of a job by force, literally all of them deserve to die or worse.
>>5541447Certainly not, but saying that this was entirely unprovoked and that the marines should just leave Silver alone to continue expanding his powerbase until they can't stop him or hope he just stops doesn't make a lick of sense
>>5540656>>Silver stuffAs much as i want to see crew stuff, and wouldn't mind some omakes if you did them anyway, i'm too invested in this rampage.
>>5541437Yes, we only expanded into the territory of big mom and only waged war against big mom.What happened as a result?The islands under her control no longer had to pay candy tithes.Instead, all that money now goes to the inhabitants, meaning more taxes for the nobles.The silver line also made piracy more regular, in a good way (from, the navy's perspective).Instead of spreading randomly across countless islands along the grand line, all these new pirates are mostly following the silver line instead.The islands along the silver line itself don't get attacked, and the islands just outside of it can be easily defended because you know they're going to get attacked.Outer Heaven has also become a center of trade, a focal point where pirates regularly collect, meaning it's easy to pick them off as they head to and from the island because again, you know where they're going.It's the same with merchant vessels hauling stolen goods, or untaxed gold and treasure.I would argue that the oceans are becoming MORE stable because of silver, not less.Silver hasn't been burning shit to the ground, he just took out one of the navy's biggest enemies for them.They just don't like the fact that he exists at all, because they can't control him.
>>5541585What I'd like to add to this is that it's foolish to assume any of the islands under Big Moms jurisdiction have returned to the WG. And as such they don't pay taxes to the gubment
>>5541585>We only conquered a superpower, that's no reason for anyone to do anything at all. Sit back, relax. Maybe he'll be satisfied with that. This time
>>5540656Im am ambivalent on this choice but either way I'd like for that interaction between Mary and Eliza in the Social Links to be mad into a full scene at some point.Too much potential for compelling writing for it to be left as just a little blurb imo.
Tomorrow we shall continue if everything works out
>>5544951Ofcourse it will work out!Bad luck? Good? Whoever wins will declare that it did!
Rubble continues to fall from the wall which had a hole blasted through it by your combined attack with Kaido. Past that and the innumerable wailing marines who got caught in the blast are the Admirals themselves, alongside other prominent figures including the Shichibukai themselves. But I guess they are the Gochibukai for now. Only one of them appears to feel threatened by your show of force but he more than makes up for the rest. The others however look at you with disdain, mild amusement or apathy. In return you gaze at them with vitriolic malice."How much?"You speak, prompting curious humming from a few of them."How much more trash will you throw my way before fighting me yourselves? Cowards."Akainu takes the cigar out of his mouth and answers in the most casual manner before putting it back in."Don't get carried away you little maggot. Just because you call yourself a Yonko now doesn't mean you can stand up to us. This "trash" as you call it is exactly what you deserve. No more." That hit a nerve."I am an Emperor. I killed a LOT of people to earn that title! Let me show you how!"Sheathing your sword you raise both your hands in the air and a shimmering bubble of vibrating air starts to form above. The sphere is the size of medium sized ship and it rapidly starts shrinking and condensing into a cannonball sized orb."LAUGHING! BOMB!"The admirals stand there completely calm even as the bomb rushed towards them. Once it's close enough to be a threat Kizaru himself casually kicks it up like a soccer ball and stands there unflinching as it detonates above with an ear splitting noise."Aw maaan. That would've been scary if it hit us. What do you guys think hmmm?""Indeed. We're grateful that you're here Borsalino-san.""Tch. Who does this twerp think he is? Attacking us outta nowhere like that? Hey Sakazuki-san? Should I wipe the floor with him for that?""Nah. He's not worth the trouble. Just a child throwing a temper tantrum. We'll see how feisty he is once his whore of a mother is beheaded right in front of him."They're taunting you. And the worst part is that it's working. They'll just stand there and keep pissing you off until you rush in so they can gang up on you all at once. And even now as you're trying to come up with a solution for that you hear the marines that weren't completely shellshocked by your attack regrouping behind you. If you don't make a move soon they'll be the ones to surround you first and possibly tire you out before the main course.>If they want a fight then they'll get one! (Charge)>Well if they don't want to fight you'll just have to occupy yourself with something else. And you'll make them watch.>"This is the last time I'll say this. Give back Eliza. Or no more nice Silver!" (show a mangled corpse for reference)>Other?
>>5545868>Well if they don't want to fight you'll just have to occupy yourself with something else. And you'll make them watch.This works for us. Remember that the main objective is to save Eliza, if they want to sit around and watch us kill marines then all the better.I want to know what Kaido is gonna do though. If he attacks the admirals then we should intervene at an opportune time.
Ok, so Silver is smort. To smort to fall for this "he's just a dumb brute" play. But i think we can use this against the marines as an organization.Show the people fighting that their superiors are willing, even happy, to let them die. Taunt them, transmit their answers and refusal to save their men to the rest.Let the marines know they are dead even if they win and then offer them a way out. Any chaff or allt who wants out can leave. Some will, some wont.But man will it be eggs on Sakazukis face, and it might make him over extend
>>5545868>Well if they don't want to fight you'll just have to occupy yourself with something else. And you'll make them watch.They'll get theirs, but not in the way they want.They're fools if they think we're going to make this easy on them, the sea will be red before we're through.
>>5545868>>Well if they don't want to fight you'll just have to occupy yourself with something else. And you'll make them watch.
>>5545868>>5545885Supporting this holy shit
>>5545868>Well if they don't want to fight you'll just have to occupy yourself with something else. And you'll make them watch.We will start by maiming marines then nobles, then celestial dragonsI assume at some point they will be ordered to fight us
>>5545885Disrupting the orders worked because we used their own voices, these dudes are incredibly brainwashed and borderline retarded.Us offering them escape would be like the devil himself offering it.Even if the admirals admit they're throwing their men to the wolves, if they say it in the language of Justice the marines will not question them.
>>5545906Some will, some won't. I'm sure a lot of them are willing to fight and risk their lives but when faced with death no matter what? You never know. And we can easily make the leadership more cruel and callous (difficult but possible) by adding a few words here and there. Remember they are also bringing in non-marine reinforcement that will be even more susceptible to this
>>5545910You might be right, but at the moment they've got us on the backfoot verbally speaking.Perhaps we could deploy this trick once they're upset and the real zingers start to fly?
>>5545914Fuck yea we should. Also if I was a marine called up to do this, I'd imagine a glorious struggle alongside the big names and legends. Not dying in droves while those same people, the only people who actually stand a chance to do anything, sit back and watch me get torn in half. That's not glory, that's not what I'd have signed up for.
>>5545868>>5545885lmao this, supporting thisand if the admirals don't play along, just make shit up like before
Alright. The consensus seems to be to torment the lower rank first to kinda get a reaction out of the big shots.That's gonna be a toughie, especially with this >>55458853d10+5, best of 4DC 25, no crit>writing

The fact that these marines are not taking you seriously is very irritating. You look around and spot some guy who's crawling on the ground after loosing one of his legs to the blast and you quickly snatch him up. He screams and pleads that you let him go but you ignore him and turn to the admirals."Well since you don't want to fight I'll just have to amuse myself. Let's see how many it takes before you had enough."Naturally you mean the admirals by that. By god you know the guy in your grasp already had enough. Drawing forth Argent with your free hand you place it against his skin and give him a close shave. A very close one. Most of them seem unbothered from the flaying of a strip of skin and the mans screams. But you do see a few of them fidgeting uncomfortably, especially the older bunch. Yet none of them are doing anything."P-Please! I'm begging you!"The marine officer just barely manages to muster himself enough to plead for mercy.You care about as much as his superiors but you do speak up. Through the Silver Style your words echo around the battlefield with everyone hearing it as if you said it right in their ears."Why are you asking me? I'm your enemy. Ask them. They are your friends, are they not? Ask why they're just watching you suffer from their little seats. Ask why they aren't doing anything. And keep asking them while I go on and flay your friends. Let's see if they'll get up while there is still a navy."Then you toss him to the ground and allow him to lament his injuries some more whilst asking the admirals for help."PLEASE! DO SOMETHING SIR! H-HE'S GOING TO KILL US ALL!""Shut up! How dare you?"Akainu responds and takes out a den-den mushi. It screeches as it goes online and his sound washes over the entirety of Marineford."Listen men! THIS IS WHAT YOU SIGNED UP FOR! You joined the Marines because of people like this! Because the world is full of monsters that need to be stopped by good men! When you falter and beg for help like that it's the ultimate shame! You betray not only your superiors and your comrades but every denizen of the world who expect US to keep them safe from maniacs like THESE scum! You lie there just because you lost a leg and because of a little scratch! You disgrace everyone who's willing to fight until their last drop of blood! Now all of you! Get. Up. And get back in the fight! The duty of a marine only ends in death! FOR JUSTICE!""For... justice!"The guy who was laying on his stomach but a moment ago stabs his sword in the ground and uses it to get up. He wobbles around on his last leg with tears rolling down his face."DIE CAVALIER!"Motivated by god only knows what he lunges forward."Idiot."So you blow a hole through his chest with a snap of your fingers.
>>5545975How do they expect to save the world when they can't even save themselves?They're just meat on the grinder, and the admirals won't help them one bit. I guess that's the justice they all sought when they joined the navy though, right?Dying pointlessly in the middle of the ocean surrounded by the corpses of your fellows, all of whom could have gone home to their families one day if the people in power had simply lifted a finger themselves.
But hearing Akainus speech and witnessing their comrade dying such a heroic death returned the Marines' spirit to them. Enraged and motivated they start surrounding you with more vigor than at the start of the battle. You don't very much care for them. Even as they augment their bodies with haki you tear through it and inflict fatal but not immediately lethal wounds on them, such as ripping open their stomachs for all to see, especially the admirals.The slaughter gets so sickening and so widespread that even the smell of blood starts reaching the upper echelons. Some take this quite hard, especially Garp."Sakazuki you bastard... you're willing to grind up the totality of the marines for the sake of your crusade huh? Fuck that.""GARP!""CAVALIEEEEEER!"Monkey D. Garp shouts from the top of his lungs before jumping down into the thick of things, soaring over the bloodstained battlefield to land right in front of you in the circle of marine troops. His allies are elated by his presence. He however doesn't share their enthusiasm."You wanted a fight! Here I am. Just leave them alone.""You sent them to die.""NO! Sakazuki did! These men did not sign up to get butchered by an unstoppable beast while their superiors are sitting on their cushioned seats!""GARP you son of a-"Grampa Monkey cracks his knuckles as he ignores Akainus cursing."But tell me. Is this what you signed up for? Is this how you want the world to know your name? Is this a name you'd be proud of? That of a monster?""Yeah."You tighten your fist and throw the first punch. Garp weaves to the right and evades it with ease before countering with his own. His fists hurt, a lot. They're easily comparable to that of Big Mom. Except he's trained enough to actually know how to throw a punch and not just monstrously strong. But you stomp on the ground and plant your leg firmly before returning an uppercut to his jaw. He barely even budges but at least you're certain he felt it. A few more exchanges later he ducks low and tries to tackle and throw you to the ground but as he does so he quickly whispers something to you."You're doing it wrong you stupid brat!"Your eyes open wide."You should be running to save her! Not waste time with us!"He catches you and pushes you into the wall, sending a crack through the whole thing. He punches you twice with his strength held back as he continues."What are you talking about?""Every minute you waste here gets them closer to victory and Eliza closer to the gallows! They don't care how many lives they'll sacrifice! And they'll just kill her in front of you before you can do anything! You're fast! Fly over and inside! There is a secret basement! Cell D-99 is where she is! Go!">"Thanks for the help" (Trust the old marine)>"Thanks. But I'd rather just kill all of you to protect her">Other?
>Send one of your Mates to go down there for her, if its true, you'll leave, if not, your blowing this place sky high.
>>5545988>"Thanks for the help" (Trust the old marine)Thanks Garp.
>>5545988>>"Thanks for the help" (Trust the old marine)
>>5545988>"Thanks for the help" (Trust the old marine)We should invent a reason other than garp telling us to do thisI dont want him to get in more trouble
Didn't we send our people, lead by Dexter to get her out while we kept everyone else busy?Us and Kaido basically being a giant, angry, distraction?But clever Garp being clever. If we get what we want then we can leave and people will survive. Not voting until that piece of clarification
>>5545988>"Thanks for the help" (Trust the old marine)
>>5545996Yes you did. BUT. They don't know where she is
>>5545988>"Thanks for the help" (Trust the old marine)>>5545994We should pull him along and get him to punch us in the right direction and make a huge mess fighting on the way over. A bit of fair play is in order. If he's fighting us, we aren't killing his men.
>>5546001Thank you, so now priority changes from "Try to dive behind the Admirals and warlord" to "how do we get this information to Dexter and co" ideas people? Cause going in alone and surrounded seems like a horrible plan.
>>5545988>>"Thanks for the help" (Trust the old marine)>>5546001In that case I’ll change my vote.
>>5545988Don't go after Eliza personally, remember that we're the distraction. We need to get thia information to Dexter and co.>>5546005We can manipulate sound like puddy, im sure we can whisper the info to one of our mates and have them be the messenger.
Alright lot of trust in Garp going on>writing
>>5545988>>Send one of your Mates to go down there for her, if it's true, you'll leave, if not, your blowing this place sky-high.
>>5546039Ok, so maybe the digging team can give us an actual escape route? Hopefully.
"Okay. Thanks for the help. But why?""Don't really have time to chit chat!"He smacks you around a bit more and headbutts you."But I know exactly how you feel! I... felt the same two years ago. I want that for you exactly as much as I want this for my people! Now get going!""No.""What do you mean no?""Got people digging underground. I'll send them a message about where to go. Knock me into the wall.""Grrr! FINE!"He pulls back his fist and punches you into the wall and the shock of it spreads throughout the structure, causing it to collapse on top of you. You wait until things stop rumbling so they don't cause an interference and activate a transponder snail on your person."Dexter. I know where she is held. Underground cells. D-99.""Yes-yes captain friend! Close-near to the bottom of the building we are. We tunnel-dig faster!""Good."You cut the channel quickly, lest the marines manage to tap it and do a quick breather before exploding out of the rubble with a creaky neck that you pop a few times."Alright. Playtime's over."You sprout a pair of wings, morph your legs and add muscle to your arms with a triple transformation. Ever since you managed to fully awaken your fruit shifting like this has become so much easier. In fact accessing many of your bat powers even in your human form have become trivial. As you spread your wings you look at Garp as you draw your sword."Round two!""Nah."He turns around and leaves."It's about time I stopped doing someone elses dirty work."Jumping back over to his seat he makes Akainu seethe."GARP! What the hell do you think you're doing?""I'm letting you have some fun as well. Go ahead. I softened him up for you just like you wanted. Now clean up the mess you made brat!"From the battleground the marines, despite being scared shitless by your almost monstrous form are getting excited. Garp has shown them that the top brass is capable of at least handling you. Emboldened by his statements the marines now cheer for Akainu to come down and handle you."Why you... You'll pay for your insolence this time Garp! I'll make sure of that!"He looks down at his front pocket and takes out a den den mushi from it."Fine! Fire the payload!""YES SIR!"The cannons mounted on the fortress itself take aim not at you but near you. They fire these massive shells which embed themselves into the ground and moments later many pacifistae crawl out of them. More than you've ever seen in one place before. Dozens upon dozens of copies of Bartholomew Kuma line up in front of you."Fire!"
You jump as they open their mouths and start flying around in the air. You're fast enough to maneuver around when they fire so their beams don't directly hit you, even with their incredibly precise shots. But the shower of beams is enough to light up the sky around you, especially as they detonate the black clouds you used to blanket the sky. They all fire in perfect sequence so there is never an opening for you to exploit. It's almost like a constant stream. Where and how they managed to get so many of these at once you have no idea, especially since you were under the impression that these are very hard and expensive to make.You don't really have a chance to wonder about that though as a single one of them manages to chip you, which messes up your flight pattern so the rest could hone in on you and blast several times and continue to do so even as you fall down. But once on the ground people can see you folding your wings over each other and using it as a shield to hide behind. Whilst you're okay they managed to lock you down well enough that the marines might start getting ideas. Sneakily you turn off your arms and instead electrify your body to boost your speed further.In one flash you disappear, letting the Pacifista blast the rocks behind where you were. They start looking around the place in search of their target when one of them gets its head torn off. Looking around their sensors are incapable of following your movements even as they fall one by one in very quick succession. Once the last one lies before you as a pile of scraps you pant heavily and look back at Akainu."Is that all?"As you say that you feel something fly past right next to you. An iridescent flying slash so brilliant it almost managed to blind you. What's more it was so fast it got past you without you noticing."Apologies. I was getting tired of these games."Hawkeye Mihawk, the strongest swordsman in the world lands on the ground in front of you."I hope you won't mind if I challenge you. I feel like I won't get a chance later."You look directly in his eyes, for you can't force yourself to look anywhere else. With your free hand you reach up to your cheek and touch it and feel your own blood staining your fingers."Shit."
And that is where I have to end things for today. Apologies.We shall continue with something "meatier" on Saturday.Have a good night until then
>>5546128Night Spooks, thanks for running!
>>5546128well I liked your "meat" it's not the size that matters.
Got some complications. Family decided to go on a trip somewhere tomorrow and graciously included me without asking. Just in case I'll write the update but I might not be able to hold a session tomorrow
>>5547082Hope it's a nice trip.
>>5547082that's always gay, but don't let it stop you from enjoying yourselfif it's happening anyways, make the most of it
>>5547082Don't get left in a bathtub full of ice
Sad dance friends died seems meaningless and anticlimatic as they would not be able to slow or even fight back
>>5548452dancing is gay (i mean just look at them) and we're a chad with multiple wives now.it's okay anon, we made it.
>>5548452I disagree, their death was a rather important narrative tool to show how much the threat to Eliza's life changes Silver's priorities and makes his ruthless actual personality come forth rather then the goofy, fun loving, mass murdering idiot he would *like* to be.
>>5548452Anons just wanted to kill things I guess. I'm still mad I was wageslaving away and couldn't say anything.I mean it probably wouldn't have helped or changed any minds but it would've made me feel better.Hope there's still some levity in this quest once this is over. Gonna be kind of hard if anons kill off all the comic relief.
>>5548669Like >>5548580 said, it was to follow the tone. Having Eliza at stake changes everything for Silver and turns his ruthlessness up to 11. He wasn't fucking around this time and told them so, they neglected the warning and found out.
>>5548685And as a bonus, of sorts, (Assuming she survives) I could legitimately see Mary becoming the foundation of an anti-Silver faction proper within the marines. Since now we have her, Hina and Tashigi with a very personal grudge against us. If she is as ambitious and driven as she is generally shown to be I could see something informal like that growing out of the Jango/Fullbody/Smoker situation.
Apologies for the weekend. Got drained a bit. But I'm back now so we can resume on Wednesday
>>5551697I blame the Greeks and their yogurt for this.
Your heart pounds in your chest and feel as if you're being watched by a fierce predator, which is not far from the truth. For the first time since the start of your rampage you feel the need to rein in your emotions as "Hawkeye" Dracule Mihawk is glaring at you. The name is apt, as his eye is like that of a raptor, cold, focused, ready to strike at a moments notice. His reputation as the greatest swordsman in the word is warranted, if that slice hit you it would've cut through you with the same efficacy as anything else. And he knows it."Pardon me. It was not my intention to interrupt you. I just do not feel like participating in this nonsense any longer. Whatever the purpose of the Navy is with the wholesale slaughter of their men I want nothing to do with it.""HAWKEYE WILL FIGHT CAVALIER! HE'LL SAVE US ALL!"Many of the marines cry out in relief."Hey! You shitty pirate! Who told you that you can move from your post! Get your ass back in place while I'm asking nicely!"Admiral Green Bull barks his threats at Hawkeye, the only response he gets is a single swipe from Mihawks sword, which cuts his sunglasses and the cigarette he's currently smoking in half down the middle.He's so taken aback by this he can neither spit nor swallow. He received the message loud and clear: "Make me"."OH NO! HAWKEYE WILL FIGHT CAVALIER! HE'S GOING TO KILL US ALL!"Hawkeye then returns his gaze to you and you feel a chill run along your spine again. The second look is just as potent as the first."You seem to be shaking. What are you so afraid of? Me? Or the potential for failure?"You tighten your hold on your sword and your body tenses up as a whole."Only those fear death who haven't lived how they wanted. I did.""People don't exclusively fear their own demise.""Tch!"
Without warning Mihawk then lunges at you with his great blade at the ready. He slices so fast that you're forced to use the Red Voice just to keep up with him. Each swing is heavy enough to make your arms numb and sharp enough that when you dodge them they slice through whatever's behind you without any effort. What's left of the great wall is sliced so perfectly the damage only becomes visible once the pieces start sliding off one another. It's blatantly obvious that he's much better at handling a sword than you are. Were it not for your near precognitive abilities it's doubtful you could follow his movements at all. At this rate you won't last much longer against him. And if you can't match him in skill, you'll compensate with power. Argent turns black as you concentrate your armament into it and you start vibrating it as hard as its structure can withstand before slamming it against Mihawk's sword. The resulting explosion clears the area around you of rubble and of any bystanders that got a little too brave for comfort. Yet Hawkeye stands defiantly in opposition of your power. With just a flick of his wrist he redirects most of the force behind your attack, so Argent neatly slides off his sword, then he thrusts the pommel of his blade in your gut. It's the cleanest hit you received, not counting Garps punches, and people are getting anxious by it. Many feel the spark of hope returning to their eyes as they witness someone not just standing up to you but seemingly turning the tide as well. Looking up it's clear to see that the other warlords are pondering whether or not they should join Hawkeye in his efforts. The situation is bad enough as is, if they did that then->It seems like this is a good time to fall back before the tide turns>It looks like you'll have to get serious sooner than expected. Time to awaken>Other?
>>5553125>It looks like you'll have to get serious sooner than expected. Time to awakenIf we lose to one shichibukai we might as well go to east blue and become a mountain bandit
>>5553125>It looks like you'll have to get serious sooner than expected. Time to awakenWhere the fuck is Kaido by the way?
>>5553125>It looks like you'll have to get serious sooner than expected. Time to awakenWe are here to draw attention and buy time, so time to draw all of the fucking attention!
>>5553138Not what, where.
>>5553125>>It looks like you'll have to get serious sooner than expected. Time to awaken
>>5553141At sea fighting the reinforcements that showed up
>>5553153"Fighting" implies anyone is able to fight back. That's cruel of you Spooks.
>>5553125>>It looks like you'll have to get serious sooner than expected. Time to awakenIf we back off it shows to our men we think we'll lose and that would be a killer for morale
>>5553125>>It seems like this is a good time to fall back before the tide turns

>>5553188Welp thats fucking ominous, like are we gonna awaken manage to get mihawk to back off for a sec and when we're about to get a critical hit to knock him out the fight something interrupts?
Rolled 3, 8, 8 + 5 = 24 (3d10 + 5)>>5553181What would I have gotten I wonder?
No. It doesn't matter. Come one, or five, or a hundred. They are just mere warlords and admirals. You are an Emperor. And they'll learn what that means even if you have to carve it into their very bones. Mihawk swings his sword behind his back and dashes towards you in an attempt to slice you in half. But he stops his own charge when the sound of a heartbeat can be heard. He stops and puts on his guard as he watches you transform.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b-edmiyF1oQWings burst from your back and spread outwards in a display equal parts majestic and nightmarish. Hair covers your whole body as it swells to great proportions and ounce of flesh distorts to take on the best qualities of your two selves. Your ears which can now flawlessly overhear the totality of the island twitch as the admiralty board speaks in what's unmistakably fear."He really did it. That bastard."Your sword, which turned gigantic as the power of your devil fruit overflowed into it is now five times the size of Mihawks. Yet you decide to put it back in its scabbard. You won't fight him as a swordsman. Your claws will do just fine."Move!"You thrust your palm forward and attempt to impale him with your spear like nails. He raises his midnight black sword and blocks the attack with its side but his body is lifted off the ground and tossed backwards like a ball of crumpled paper. The shockwave of the impact is enough to unbalance and knock down most others on their rear ends. Hawkeye merely slides backwards a few more yards once his feet touch the ground. His unblinking eyes still don't budge an inch."That clarifies a few things."Not a moment passes and he takes off with such speed that most people don't see him move and even with those who have observation haki only see a black line dart across the battlefield. But your red eye and your ears can see and hear him move. Each time he tries to cut you down you counter with your claws. Moving around the battlefield like a blur your fighting produces thunderous explosions everywhere.Mihawk only gets one chance to chop off your arm but he stops mid swing and looks at you with the same emotionless expression on his face. He saw through the bait, meaning he must be able to see the future as well. True, his sword could easily cut through your defenses but if your wounds erupted in fire he wouldn't get through that unscathed. Or at least that was your plan."Interesting. You fight with a more bestial cunning than any man I've ever faced. It truly feels like I'm fighting a monster. You live up to your reputation after all."
But you don't very much care for flattery at this point and he won't get far with it. You keep pushing against him using every method of attack available to you. Arms, legs, wings rain down on him to batter him into submission or at the very least keep his sword occupied. You breathe fire and shed lightning whilst filling the air around him with a choking mist. Yet the greatest swordsman lives up to his reputation as he bats away each and every attack, cuts through bolts of lightning and tongues of fire whilst being unbothered by the lack of breathable air. Yet nobody is unbeatable, not even you and most certainly not him. As far as you can tell he's just human. With human weaknesses.During your perpetual flurry you start fluttering the patagium of your wings and speak with a voice resonating with that voice."Don't move!"The echoing sound enters his ear and starts resonating with his inner ear. For the briefest of moments Mihawk stumbles as he's overcome by an intense vertigo. He takes one wrong step and his foot slides off a rock jutting out of the ground. This momentary distraction is all you need. Raising your fist in the air and aiming down you start blowing fire out of your elbow to propel your punch but you hold it back until your arm is shaking from the built up force."NOW D-Urk!"You stop.Mihawks eyes open wide and he doesn't hesitate with jumping out of danger. This is the first time you see him emoting in any way and he seems confused."Why did you cease? You had me. This is such a disappointment. So tell me. Why?"But you don't want to answer, or rather can't as you're fixated with the ground right under your feet. Mihawk notices your fixation and also looks down."Oh. That explains a few things. Clever. However if that's distracting you-""STOP!"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UBiAA6BMxbU&t=1sMihawk raises his sword and cuts the island in half right between the two of you. Though neither half starts submerging the separated landmasses slowly drift further and further from each other until a massive ravine forms. Understandably the admiralty board is more than a little mad about this but once they become aware of the reason why he did it they fall silent. From the gap Eliza jumps out alongside Murray with Lyda and Dexter riding each of them respectively as water rushes in to fill the crevice."Phew! That was a close one.""There. Now you won't have any distractions.""E-Eliza..."You look at her with an open mouth. She's in a bad condition. She's been mercilessly beaten and starved just to keep her in check. Yet she hasn't lost anything from her sunny disposition."Heeey buddy. It's been a while. You've grown a lot!"She smiles yet it's obvious that she's weary.But now it's not the time for chit-chat or tearful reunions.>"Can you fight?">"Murray! Take her out of here! NOW!">Other?
>>5553238>"Murray! Take her out of here! NOW!">"I'll stay here and make sure no one important can follow you"don't try and have eliza stay and fight just to end up aced
>>5553238>>"Murray! Take her out of here! NOW!">>Other? We got who we came here for, time for everyone to go.No stupid solo last stands.
>>5553238>"Murray! Take her out of here! NOW!"
>>5553238>>Other?>Time to leaveI don't really trust we can send them off on their own. Because Kaido's a dumbass. And we can only keep at best a few of these higher echelon dudes occupied.
>>5553247if it was just us then yeah, but kaido will be here aswell, they'd need all the big bois here to for us and kaido, like at worse they send like weevil or someone strong but not top tier after them, who i feel murray could take, and i fear if we try to retreat kaido genuinely might attack us and turn this battle into a 3-way, plus i genuinely just don't see silver being satisfied with this
>>5553238>"Murray! Take her out of here! NOW!">"I'll stay here and make sure no one important can follow you"Its time to UNLEASH THE BEAST
>>5553251I do. First we get Eliza out. THEN we party. >>5553244I support this... But do extend Mihawk an offer to do this properly, because right now we are about to get a lot 'more' distracted.
>>5553238>MCGINNIS, GET OUT OF THERE--Wait, shit, wrong series.>Murray, get her out of here!
My biggest concern here is a kaido betrayal, cause i just keep thinking why wouldn't he? if he kills eliza or atleast tries to this turns into an even bigger clusterfuck where now the wars even bigger and more chaotic, where as if he lets her leave silver will probably fuck off and end the party
>>5553238>"Murray! Take her out of here! NOW!">"I'll stay here and make sure no one important can follow you"We also must give her one of our Second Wind capsules. Food and energy is what she currently lacks.
>>5553251I don't trust Kaido to not kill her just to prove a point to Silver.
>>5553264>>5553267Good points. Second wind to Eliza and a very watchful eye on Kaido. Just in case.
>>5553267Yeah glad to see i don't just seem to be paranoid here, because eliza escaping definetly seems like worse case scenario here for him, cause either then need to retreat with silver and his followers or stay cause havoc and inevitably die on his own
>>5553272and i don't think kaidos looking to die here, like this is just the pre-trial demo of the war kaido seeks to die in, if he wanted this he could have just gotten his entire crew together and assaulted marineford himself years ago, nah kaidos looking for an even grander stage and war to die in
>>5553264>>5553251>>5553267>>5553268>>5553272>>5553277Smort. Very smort>writingNow...3d10+5 best of 4DC 30

Rolled 8, 8, 1 + 5 = 22 (3d10 + 5)>>5553284
>>5553285Nah kaidos looking for a war thats unignorable, everyones fighting everyone, no choice, kaidos pretty much looking for complete anarchy where its every man/crew for themselves, if the one piece worlds ocean ain't turn red from the aftermath of it then it wasn't big enough, like it'll be big enough where ppl can't just decide whether they'll; participate or not, they need to get involved or be killed standing on the sidelines
Welp with that high a DC this is obviously to guard eliza against an attack, might be kaido or akainu, don't think mihawk since he's not the type to attack someoneo n the sidelines, any other options besides those 2?
"Eliza! Eat this!"You shout after her as you toss her a pill from your pouch. She catches it and wanders only for a moment before swallowing it whole. She feels a burst of energy and is already looking much better. But you know that once it runs out she'll be in the same condition again."MURRAY! Take her out of here! I'll stay and make sure nobody can follow you!""U-Understood! Sorry miss-"As she gets picked up alongside the petite doctor Eliza starts protesting immediately."HEY! Get your hands off me! Let me fight!""My sincerest apology but I can't. This whole war is for your sake! If you die here then all of this was for nothing!""I DON'T CARE YOU STUPID FISH! I'LL FIGHT! LET GO!""GRR!"As your first mate drags Eliza away with great effort you stand there facing the admirals and the royal shichibukai. As you look over them it's clear that the old brigade with Garp, Sengoku and Tsuru are absolutely livid. But the admirals themselves almost seem... pleased.The three of them alongside Akainu get up from their cushy seats and look down at you."So... you're saying you'll stay here so we don't go after her? Perfect."Akainu takes out his transponder snail and quick dials it."Sentomaru. Change of plans. Deploy the Seraphim. No matter what happens you're not allowed to let Eliza D. Silver escape.""And you're telling me this NOW?! Tch. Fine. Understood!"Your confusion is immense."What?""You don't get it? Then let me make it clear for you, moron. We were ready to throw hundreds or even thousands of men at you just to slow you down. Because we're aware just how slippery of a maggot you are. You talk big but once the heat gets too much you tuck your tail and run like a coward. Or like that whore mother of yours. And by the way. She never mattered. Just a rabid dog past her time barking defiantly that it can still bite. Yet she almost died to an old man and runs the moment she encounters the slightest piece of resistance. She was just bait, the thing that was meant to keep you here until we break your wing so you can't escape. But if you're willing to stay behind on your own the better for us. Now go ahead. Cover for her!""Eyo! You scumbag warlords!"Green Bull shouts upward."Your job is to keep this guy here! If you let him slip we'll be executing you instead!""Unleashing a beast like that is not an easy choice to make."Fujitora draws his sword."But it's a small price to pay for the head of a demon.""Round twoooo sonny!"You're faced with the admirals on one side and the Shichibukai on the other, with the old crew acting as back-up. You fell right into their trap. If you wanted you could probably escape. But you already made up your mind."Ke-Kekekekeke! You want my head? Fine! Come and get it! But even if I die... I'll still be the one winning! I AM EMPEROR SILVER! AND YOU WILL NEVER FORGET MY NAME!"
You draw Argent and swing it only for Akainu to stop it with his bare foot. The leg drips with molten magma which threatens to overwhelm both the cursed alloy and the haki protecting it."Don't get ahead of yourself pipsqueak. Come tomorrow nobody will care you ever existed. You die and all the glory you gained will only serve to strengthen the marines!"You falter for a moment. He's right. It's the very philosophy you lived by. The strong take what they want and the weak don't matter. If you fall here then they'll take everything you worked for. Loosing means death. Death means loosing. This momentary lapse in concentration is all the other admirals need."Allow me."Fujitora hits Argent and the arm which held it a moment ago gets dragged down by it."Didn't I tell you before hmmm? Speed... is... weight."Before you could drop Argent and before you could turn to look at your assaulter you're kicked in the back of the head so hard you get sent flying through half the battlefield before falling into half a jungles worth of vines which coil around your body like a mass of writhing snakes. The vines thicken into tree trunks as they tighten around and start digging into your body."Rahaha! You were saying all that good shit a second ago. Where did it all go?"His leg turns into a cactus which explodes as he kicks you, sending all the needles deep into your flesh. The jungle you got entangled in erupts from the force of the impact."Issho!""Understood. Please everyone, get back."Fujitora sheaths his sword and approximately ten seconds later the clouds above part as he summons a meteor to strike your location.Marines all over the place start running for the hills and even members of the Shichibukai, save for Kuma stare in awe of this display of destructive power. But you get up with a groan, look up and spread your wings. Flying up you tackle the giant rock and manage to suspend it in the air. Your eye glows red as you look down."YOU IDIOTS! I AM SILVER! I KILLED WHICH YOU FEARED TO TOUCH! I DESTROY ISLANDS WITH MY FISTS! I AM AN EMPEROR! I-""Kizaru.""Yeah, yeah."He points his finger at you and after about a minute of charging fires off a powerful beam of light which obliterates the meteor, exploding it on top of you and sending fiery chunks of rock down to the ground. You feel Kain turning off after the blast and each piece of rubble which falls on you and buries your body.
And that is the end for today ladies and gentsSee you on the weekend (hopefully with no surprises for me this time)Have a good night
>>5553341Night Spooks, and thanks for running!
>>5553340Yeah this was just kinda pathetic at the end here for silver, like not even the getting his ass beat part, he's against 4 admirals thats expected but to just keep on boasting instead of actually doing shit, like i expected better from him, cause this was just embarassing
>>5553344Yeah the more i reread the end of the update just kinda seems really weird? like when fujitora summoned the meteor, like why does silver decide to go hold it up? then start meaninglessly boasting? and then just sit there for a full minute while kizaru charges up a laser?
I HATE LOSING AND NOW I AM ANGRY FOREVERI HOPE WE DON'T LOSE NEXT WEEK OR I WILL BE EVEN MORE ANGRY FOREVERER
>>5553360>anon's fw silver gets a double ouchie next sess and gets his leg cut offPersonally I'm just irritated with anons. We knew going into this that it was a trap for Silver. Silver knew this was a trap for him. Everyone around knew it was a trap for Silver. And then anons vote to literally step into the trap for Silver.I get it, but still.
>>5553379Well, if we die we die.But i ain't letting Eliza die.If this is as far as we can go, we still had a good run.
>>5553379What would you have done then? The objective was to save Eliza, how would you accomplish that without "stepping into their trap"?
>>5553385But I want to win. What kind of victory is the one you can't celebrate? And hey if they kill us fast enough they might still have time to pursue our crew. So let's try to not die.>>5553391Well for one we could have at least tried to bait them into fighting Kaido, either by chasing us or directly leading them near him. A fighting retreat if you will. Silver was never going to win a direct engagement against the entire top brass of the marines. He'd struggle to decisively beat even one of them. Obviously this is Mihawk's fault for noticing the scheme but come on. At least TRY to do something other than exactly what they want.
>>5553404Of course, i want to win too.But i don't know how we're gonna get out of this one. Unless Kaido helps us.It cost us an arm last time, but i don't think we'll get that lucky again.We knew, though. Like you said, we all knew. And we went in knowing.So whatever the results, i have no regrets. I followed my heart to the end.
I mean the simple fact of a fighting retreat means we'd need to guard eliza, which means we'd probably straight up need to be a body shield for all their attacks still, this way elizas not in as much danger and silver can fight without a handy cap, and if worse does come to worse we can retreat
Gonna try and do a session tomorrow
"I'm tired. I wanna go home..."Lying under a mountain of rubble you sigh to yourself. After the blast exploded the meteor over your head the shockwave was strong enough to knock you out momentarily and with your consciousness the awakening went as well. Now you feel exhausted and everything aches as the transformations rejuvenating effect worse off."Let me just... rest a bit."Just as you're about to close your eyes again something grabs your hand which was sticking out of the big pile of debris and it yanks you out of the dirt. The bright light after the artificial twilight hurts your eyes something fierce, or perhaps it's the concussion causing it. Hard to tell. But as you focus the figure who pulled you out becomes clear to see."E-Eliza?!""Why is she here?!"The marines shout angrily.Yet Eliza only smiles."Yo little buddy. Looks like we're even again!""W-Why did you come back?! I told you to get out!""Yeah? Heh. Like that'll stop me! After seeing you pull a stunt like that and eating shit I knew I couldn't just leave you alone."She dusts you off a little before letting you go. As you fall ass first on the ground she looks at the marine admirals to size them up."Oh and by the way, tell your fish-man I'm sorry about kneeing him in the balls. He didn't wanna let me go. You got some good, loyal friends!"Though still tired now you're fired up once more so you get up to give her a piece of your mind."Are you stupid?! I told you! This is all for you! I came to save-"SLAPYour cheek stings and burns red. Though it had no real power behind it that smack still hurts more than perhaps any attack you ever took."E-Eh?""Stupid kid. Playing hero and all that. Who said I wanted to be rescued? Don't go around deciding my fate for me. If my rescue involves you dying then I want nothing to do with it! Got that? Now either get off your ass and let's kick theirs or you can sit back and let me handle it! What'll it be bud?""Kek. You even have to ask?"As you get up and raise your hands Akainu scoffs at you."You should've known your place Mad Dog. If you ran with your tail between your legs you may have lived a couple more days. Now you'll both die. But I guess it'll be poetic, putting down the bitch and her mangy mutt at the same time."Eliza smirks."Damn. Now I'm actually scared. "Fleet Admiral kills Emperor and former member of the Rocks single handedly" that'd make a killer headline though. I'd kinda like to see that! Shame that the current Fleet Admiral is a big bitch who has to gang up on a kid who barely has pubes. But how 'bout you come and prove me wrong huh? Show me those brass balls of yours and fight against unfair odds for a change?"
"You talk a lot for a washed up hasbeen who was nearly killed by an old man and who's done nothing but petty vandalism since then. You should realize that your time's been up for a while now. All you were useful for was as bait.""Damn. I guess I really am washed up. And I guess that's why I got more tightly locked up than a virgin celestial dragons cunt! But enough tongue wagging I say. There's only one way to settle this. With violence! Oh... but one more thing before that."Elizas cheerful demeanor disappears and she looks dead serious for a moment."You will never win. You can go from island to island and hang every infant. Your hunt for pirates will never be over, no matter how thorough you and your owners are. And one day, when you look down to see more blood clinging to your hands than to every other pirate who ever lived combined, you'll wonder what the point of it all was. Then you'll be wishing you died today.">"Thankfully with our help you won't have to live through that! Aren't we nice?">Just stay silent and attack>Say something witty to the others too (write-in)>Other?
>Kekeke, you didn't even kill Whitebeard, BB had too do that for you chumps.>>Hell, I bet you didn't even capture Roger, he probs just turned himself in cause he was bored of you weenie's hunting him all day
>"Thankfully with our help you won't have to live through that! Aren't we nice?">Fucking literal power of friendship nonsense here. I love it. That said we do need to start coming up with a way of getting the fuck out of here. Because this is one fuck of a fight even with Kaido on our side, and I don't know if he'l show and if he does if he'l kill Eliza. Or us. On the bright side odds are that our crew might be able to lend a little but of support and if any of "our" pirate crews wants to impress now'd be the time. Still, focus has to be on creating a opening with which to escape without any casualties we care about.
>>5556740>"Thankfully with our help you won't have to live through that! Aren't we nice?"We should call out to our crewmates to help us. We keep forgetting we don't have to do this alone. If we can really hurt or kill some of these bastards while we escape to a better position all the better.
>>5556741>"Thankfully with our help you won't have to live through that! Aren't we nice?"We really need backup
>>5556741>>"Thankfully with our help you won't have to live through that! Aren't we nice?">>5556755Agreed, definitely call our crew back. This is a free for all and fighting 2vmany is dumb as fuck.
>>5556756It's also risking certain getting them killed... But Silver didn't raise no bitches. We can cover each other while everyone makes it back to the boats. Or hell, just back to the ocean. Bet Murray could swim with us and Daunty in tow at this point.
>>5556741>"Thankfully with our help you won't have to live through that! Aren't we nice?"We could just retreat now that we have elizaI don't think we will get away with killing an admiral with 0 casualtiesIf we did try to really kill one, we would have to fight garp and all the other admirals and vice admirals
>>5556762If we retreat now our ships will be nuked tho, and they'l chase us down. Not gonna work to just run.
Yeah i don't see us walking away from this with no casualities, like my hope b4 was that our crew and eliza would be able to get out onto the sea and then we retreat after them once they were far enough, since none of the admirals have better air manuverability than or better battler at sea than murray, but just a frank head to head with all our crew plus eliza and maybe kaido V all the admirals and the warlords AND the seraphim? no way either side walks away completely unscathed
>>5556777Yeah it'd be painful, but what's the alternative? Treat our crew like fragile glass babies and refuse their help? All while we get dogpiled by all these strong dudes?
>>5556781hmm idk like our crews by no means weak but besides murray i wouldn't call any of them particularly strong either? and even with murray alot of his power comes from being close to the sea or another large body of water, which unless the image of where we are rn is wrong isn't particularly close to the ocean
>>5556784if this was a sea battle though the admirals would be in a real fucking bad position here even if it was all 4 of them V just silver and murray, the only real problem i could think of is fujitora pulling gravity shit on us because otherwise they're just trying to take pot shots at either murray in the water or silver in the sky while we'd have a big and relatively slow moving target in there boat, which means they'd either need to retreat or risk being stuck on a sinking ship
>>5556741>>Just stay silent and attackshould probably just get this fight started instead of all this meaningless boasting and taunting that got our ass fucked up before
InterestingSo you want to call the crew here huh?A'ight3d10+5 best of 4DC 20Crit 27Success means you succeed in your attack. Crit actually gets you the boys here>writing

>>5556825ok i won't be greedy, i'll only ask for two 10s and a 9 next time
"Thankfully with our help you won't have to live through that! Aren't we nice?"You grin at the admirals and make a decision. Reaching into one of your pockets you pull out a little something that was put there in case of emergencies. A gold encrusted finger bone into which the blueprints of an ancient weapon have been carved. It's value can not be measured. You clench it for a moment before throwing it in the air and shouting."EVERYONE! TO ME!"Everyone watching you shudders and reels back in fear until the bone impotently falls on the ground, at which point they start laughing at you. But their laughs get interrupted when out of nowhere the entirety of the Silver Pirates show up and kick up a pretty substantial dust cloud around them. Murray, Marcella, Gu, Hagetaka, Ann, Will, Lyda, Greki, Nutmeg, Pepe and Dexter all brandish their respective weapons and look ready to jump. Suffice to say many of the marines now regret that their pants are blue and not brown."ATTACK THE ADMIRALS!"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nR3CFIyEsF0"YES SIR!""YES SIR!""YES SIR!""YES SIR!""YES SIR!""NOW THIS IS WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT! LET'S FUCKING GO LITTLE BUDDY!""YEAH!"As the others take off you start running side by side with Eliza. She starts ramming Fujitora who starts winding up one of his gravity based attacks to stop everyone in their tracks. She forces him to parry with his blade after throwing an axe kick and you vault over both of them to clash with Akainu whose heat you can take better than most. Meanwhile the others split up and tackle the other admirals. Murray goes after Green Bull and starts wrecking the plant matter that he creates using his innate water manipulation. Ann, well suited to fighting in thick vegetation thanks to her spider body, jumps around with Will on her back who showers the admiral with all manners of trick bolts. And whatever plants Murray can not handle on his own Dexter carbonizes using his flamethrower.While that is going on Kizaru assaults Pepe who's standing in the middle of the battlefield without her guard raised."Sorry lady. But it's best to kill a traitor before an enemy. Wouldn't you agree? Hmmm?""I do. Which is why I expected you'd try this. Kami-e: Piero Dansu."Using a mixture of Soru and Kami-e the clown girl dodges as the light man tries to kick her and appears to be moving in two directions at the same time, then four, then six as she produces more clones of herself."Oh myyyyy. How interesting. However-"Kizaru points at one of them."-still too slow."As he fires off one of his lasers he hits the clown girl... whose body absorbs it completely. Her body turns black and fractures as it reshapes itself into that of .Hagetaka While her mirror image has ended her body hasn't assumed its natural configuration. Instead she remains a large block of black glass and using that she refracts the light several times within her own body before shooting it back at Kizaru.
>>5556852God the crew is hype AS FUCK. God this feels so fucking good. Now this is teamwork, family, all that good shit. These admirals messed with the wrong fucking crew.
>>5556859>It's value is literally immeasurable>Lyda can switch things with equal valueBrings a damn tear to my eye!
A hole is blown through the admirals chest but instead of viscera the circle is lined with shining light."Dear me...""YOUR GUARD IS DOWN SHITHEAD!"Falling from the sky Marcella attempts to drive her hook blade into Kizarus head but he simply raises his own sword to block it."Hmmmm. No.""TCH!"Marcella grunts and her whole body erupts with hooks which first make an armor around her, then like a sea urchins spines they shoot out to pin the admiral in place.Yet despite the armament infusion Borsalinos body dissipates into rays of light and reforms itself a few yards away."Is that meant to make you more powerful? Looks scaaary!""No! It makes me BAIT!""Huh?"Lyda switches places with the silver nugget Marcella placed in Kizarus pocket and the moment she appears she touches his suit to switch HIM with the nugget that's now in the air."GREKI!""Whaaaa-"Kizaru finds himself immensely confused as he's suddenly off his feet and high in the air. He can't even recover from the shock before his entire field of view is dominated by a massive hammer."HAKOKU!"With a loud chime like a church bell Kizaru is shot into the fort of the marines and he forms a crater in its mighty walls. He lets out a little "Ow" as he lies there."Pant. Pant. Thanks fer the assist lass!""No problem..."Nutmeg replies as she kneels on his shoulder, equally exhausted."Hopefully that put a dent in him, 'cause that was all my haki that I put in your hammer."https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YZh1qzjM8PIAs this is happening you desperately try to hold off Akainu but you're forced to pull back once you hear the voice of your prosthetic arm fading as it starts melting. Quickly drawing Parley you fire off a shot with it that may not deal any damage to the logia user but it's enough to propel you the other way. As you fly backwards you see Eliza fighting in what looks like a donut shaped ring that was pressed into the ground with the "hole" in the middle being occupied by Fujitora. She's fending off his sword strikes with nothing but her bare hands under immense gravitational pressure and she doesn't even appear to be slowed down."HAHAHAAAA! What's wrong Admiral?! That the best you can do?! GO ON! INCREASE IT! But know that the island will break before I do! AAAAHAHAHAAAA!""How troublesome."Fujitora slashes the air and Eliza starts floating. He then rips out the ground which he's standing on and flies back a hundred yards. Eliza then drops to the ground as he raises his sword to attack and focuses an immense amount of his Zushi Zushi powers into it."Gravito-"Eliza looks at you as you land next to her."Hey! Remember that move?""Yeah!""RAGING TIGER!"Issho slices the air and you see space bending in front of you. In response the two of you assume the same fighting pose and pull your fists back."Silver Style: SILVER VOICE!""Silver Style: SILVER VOICE!"
The earth shakes and the winds rage as your two attacks collide. Chunks are torn out of the earth and people can't seem to hold their balance. But what they attribute to the earthquake quickly turns out to be a result of something far, far worse. As the vortex of gravity swirls and crashes against your attack in the middle of the island the whole thing begins tilting from the immense force. Finally before the totality of Marineford would sink underwater the energies cancel each other out in an explosion and the ground falls back in place before it could tip over.As massive waves are sent out to the sea as tsunamis Issho grunts."What... power... Fleet Admiral I believe we're in a lot of trouble.""Damn it! Where is that bastard Sentomaru?!""Hah! Well it looks like you CAN beat some sense into the marines if you start DESTROYING THE WORLD hard enough!"Eliza cracks her knuckles and gets ready for another attack but suddenly something alerts both of you. A large, cutting attack almost catches you off guard but thankfully you can dodge it at the last moment. It moves past you with a shrieking sound and cuts neatly through each defensive wall before it reaches the sea and cuts a pirate ship in half."Fudge!"You curse."Looks like Hawkeye wants in on the fun too. Wait..."Your ears perk up."Why are there two Hawkeyes?!"You turn around and to your horror you see Sentomaru, the fat guy with the big axe who took your eye. He's surrounded by... children. A bunch of kids that look eerily familiar. There are six of them in total. Each of them has white hair, black skin, black wings and they are all on fire for some reason."Sorry for the delay. Had to run here with the Seraphim after the Silvers took off.""About damn time!"Akainu scoffs."Sentomaru! Order them to attack!""What... have you... done?"Eliza mutters to herself as she looks at them."Seraphim! Eliminate the pirates!"As Sentomaru gives the order the hair on the back of your neck stands up. You feel... fear. For some reason these kids are more terrifying for you than even the admirals themselves. A voice deep inside you is screaming that you need to get out of here. Now!>"EVERYONE! RUUUUUUUN!">"We're surrounded! Everyone! Form up!">"I will not be intimidated by a bunch of kids! Come on!">Other?
>>5556890>>"We're surrounded! Everyone! Form up!"
>Kill the sumo guy, maybe if their leader dies they will back offIf we kill Sentomaru and copy his voice, then we could turn this around
>>5556907Silver doesn't know that
>>5556908That's why I added his own logic for the fightIf their leader dies, they might back off
Loud and clear capitan, bingo winchester on the double!>>5556890>"We're surrounded! Everyone! Form up! We're breaking out!"Breaking formation and every man, woman and child for himself sounds like a horrible plan. As does trying to fight them, as does trying to stand our ground. So move as a team, get the fuck out of here. Fighting retreat as they say. I wanted an opening and with Kizaru and Issho both (temporarily) kind of out this is that chance. We take it or we die.That all said: Fucking hell Spooks that last one was simply fucking awesome. >>5556911That doesn't make any sense.
>>5556908He could deduce it from what Akainu and Sentomaru said."Order them to attack""Seraphim! Eliminate the pirates!"They made them sound like tools and tools do nothing without a user.
So who are the seraphim here? i assume the 4 canon ones but who are the other 2? moria and crocodole? buggy? blackbeard?
>>5556919cause like the specific seraphim threat lvls are on completely different scales, like give me a seraphim buggy to fight anyday of the week over a potential law or blackbeard
Also>>5556890>"We're surrounded! Everyone! Form up! We're breaking out!"We really need to get the fuck outta here.
>>5556890>>"We're surrounded! Everyone! Form up! We're breaking out!"Changing vote
>>5556890>>5556916>>"We're surrounded! Everyone! Form up! We're breaking out!"Yeah you know what changing my vote. Mission fucking accomplished, let's just leave as intelligently and safely as possible.
>>5556890>"We're surrounded! Everyone! Form up! We're breaking out!"
>>5556890>"We're surrounded! Everyone! Form up! We're breaking out!"If they're planning to use everything they've got on this then there's no reason to sit here and take it.
Guessing this last vote/roll before live ends?
>>5556960Whose live is ending?!
Alright. We are all on the same page.Form up, wait for opening, leave.>writingno roll>>5556960Naw
>>5556975scary hope that doesn't mean we got double trapped.
>>5556975This is gonna either be good or terrible
>>5556979Hopefully it means the Marines thought Silver was too retarded and aggressive to consider retreating.
>>5556979What about goorrible?
>>5556979i can't imagine leavings so simple that we'd be able to do it without a roll at all, so i think they've somehow trapped us, maybe something with a seraphim law and a room?
>>5556984>UpdateOk, so someone is gonna die then
>>5556983I mean silvers literally shouting to form up and then retreat
Is it kaido getting mad that we ran away maybe?
>>5556987We don't need to shout. We have magic silver-style walkietalkie nonsense. >>5556975This is cruel. I mean I love it, but fuck me is this cruel. Are we dead? Is it good? Are we dead but Lyda manages to shove our soul back into a new meatsuit? Who knows, I don't.
How many marines did we kill? I feel like a good couple thousand
>>5556994Silver killed a bunch of fodder and like four vice-admirals
I will say if we do somehow manage to just get away scottfree here i'd be a little disappointed, like if next updates "got on daunty and went home no issue" then nothing really would have happened this entire arc, like yeah we killed tons of nameless fodder and a couple side characters but thats it, and besides that nothing would have changed, marines still hate silver and silver still hates the marines
>>5557000Yea i don't think it's gonna be quite so simple. We'l be here a good while longer methinks.
These things... these things are terrifying. You had experiences with Pacifista and Clones whose voices are all identical to one another. And these are similar but not quite the same. They are... more. Their voices resonate with one another, with approximately one third of it being identical between all of them. But the rest is different. And they are a mix of man and machine just like the pacifista but they are not nearly as uniform. To top it all off they are more "alive" than the soulless cyborgs. You look over them individually to try and figure out why they are so familiar and then you notice it.Each one is modeled after a Shichibukai, current or former.Dracule Mihawk.Boa Hancock.Jinbe.Bartholomew Kuma.Gecko Moria.And Donquixote Doflamingo."Guys.... Everyone! We're surrounded! Form up! We're breaking out!""What the-"Everyone looks at you and they waste only a precious few seconds before they hurry to your side."What are these things?""I got no idea. But they're freaking me out! Watch your backs!"As you discuss the situation with your friends however Eliza continues muttering things to herself."When... how... What... Have... YOU... DONE?!""Seraphim!"Sentomaru raises his hand and the admirals smirk."Terminate the Silvers and Eliza D. Silver!"The six child soldiers start moving and Eliza charges them in a violent frenzy, breaking away from you as she screams."DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA OF WHAT YOU'VE UNLEASHED?! YOU BASTARDS!""MOM!"She gets in range of the copy of Mihawk first and she parries his sword with the back of her hand. As its copy of Hawkeyes sword moves past her it cuts a trench almost as big into the ground as Dracule himself did. She retaliates with a straight punch to the face but it barely budges. Hancocks copy gets behind her and aims her palm at Eliza which begins to shine just like Kizarus or other pacifistas and fires a laser at her. She jumps high in the air to avoid the blast but Kumas copy moves to intercept her. It raises its palm at Elizas face and she gets sent into the ground immediately. Seeing this Pepe screams."THAT'S BARTHOLOMEW KUMAS FRUIT!""WHAT THE FUCK ARE THESE THINGS YOU STUPID CLOWN?! ANOTHER FUCKING THING YOU CAN'T TELL US ABOUT?!""I HAVE NO IDEA BLOODHAIR! I DON'T KNOW WHAT THESE ARE!"Eliza tries to stand up in the crater which she blew into the earth but she feels her legs being kept in place as a pair of arms come out of the ground and grab her."WHATTHE-"Two more arms pop up from her shadow this time and hold her arms down. Then... Doflamingos copy jumps in the air and kicks her in the chest as it falls. The air is driven from her lungs. But all that, all that was just the set-up. For the finale Mihawks copy returns and with one clean slice it slices open her abdomen. And a pit forms in your throat."NOOOO!"
>>5557020ah, man. what did we do wrong?
>>5557027Should have tried to kill Sentomaru
>>5557029That vote was meta as hell.
>>5557030And yet, there was enough clues that Silver could pierce it together.
>>5557020I've gotta be real here with you spook, i don't think you're the best at writing group fights, like so often im just reading and im like "yo whats "insert character here" doing while this is happening" like the minute eliza charges i feel like silver would be right behind here but apparently he just stays back and provides and just watches and dramatically screams, like your 1 V 1, or 1 V more are pretty good buts its group V groups where i think you falter abit
>>5557044like for this just a good block of text of the admirals holding off silver and his crew while eliza tries to fight the seraphim would make this alot better IMO
>>5557044Naah mate, that last teamfight >>5556852>>5556868>>5556890was fucking great. You just don't like that we don't get to win and walk away all happylike.
Kinda misses the point of... ya knowBeing on defence
>>5557044the tag-teaming of the admirals was great though
>>5557048what? im fine with us losing, but genuinely at the end here why is silver just standing there and watching? like ok the rest of our crew makes sense maybe waiting for silver to act first, and don't be like "oh it happened too fast" if its long enough for commentary to be provided then its long enough for silver to charge, like if eliza charged and then S-Hawk immediately cut her up i'd be find, bbut thats no what happened, the seraphim started beating on her and theres no indication of silver doing anything besides screaming "MOM", like all we need is something like "Silver tried to charge after her but akainu quickly moved in front of him to hold him off"
>>5557050Yeah that was pretty good, would have liked to know what the warlords were doing but i can see the warlords sitting back unless specifically called on though
>>5557058Wonder if they'l still sit back with mindwashed cyborg mini-me abominations of themselves running around tho.
>>5557058or like what were garp and sengoku doing while we were fighting the admirals? maybe something like how they were making sure none of the marine food soldiers got caught in any of the collateral from the fight, it explains why they didn't jump in and fits well with their character
>>5557069Fighting Kaido or such? Eating crackers?
It all happened so fast you could barely follow it. One instant and she was bested, taken down and cut open like a fucking fish. A flash of horror washes over everyone as they also realize what just happen. They can't stop you from taking off just like how you couldn't stop Eliza. Their reactions are too slow."Silver wai-""AAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH! RAGNAROK VOICE!"Your body erupts with lightning which causes the mini pacifistas to scatter. Thankfully your friends are quick enough to follow you and get between you and the cyborgs, which are quickly getting into formation to surround you, as you go and kneel down next to Eliza."Mom? MOM! Ma please talk to me!""Cough. F-Fuck... I messed up. R-Rookie mistake. Shit.""Mom?! Thank God! Please just hold it together! Lyda will-"Eliza grabs your arm as you try to look away in search for Lyda. Quickly you jerk back your head only to see her shake her head."N-No. Sorry bud. But... unless you got the Ope-Ope no Mi there's no way anyone can patch me up in time. Oh fuck... come on guts, stay inside for just one more minute, mommy needs you.""I-I-"You don't understand. Why is she saying that?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o231fOo8cNg"Truth is I already got a debt to the Reaper. Can't take another loan before paying this one off. Cough. But... if you wanna help. Then come here. I got something to tell you. One... final lesson."You can't breathe, you can't swallow and you can't blink. It feels like you're choking on something and it hurts. You're so overtaken by all this that you can't even argue, you just lean in and listen close."I... leave this to you bud and... I'm sorry I can't do more. So listen. This world... is unfair at its core. History is just a series of cruel barbs. Death the worst of it all. However it's because we die that we try to leave some legacy behind. For most, that's children. As copies of ourselves they take a piece of ourselves onward to eternity."She coughs up some of her blood but once it clears her throat she continues."When this cruel world beats you down, just turn around and look behind you. See the long, unbroken chain protected by these men. See that we frail humans fought tooth and nail to survive. That trail can stoke the fires of courage in those that come after. All those bearing the name D are more than just history, they are hope. Take in that long stream of unbroken experience and see the truth. For each time mankind cursed the world, we've loved it twice as much in return. That's why we cling to life between the earth and the sky, why we fight till the end. Life is not measured in years but in what we leave behind. We're the same as beasts, desperate to leave behind offspring. I couldn't have any. So mine is you."Now you can no longer hold your tears back. With a gentle touch she wipes them away and smiles."So I ask that when you feel sad just look over your shoulder. I'll be right behind you. Always."
>>5557070Well kaidos apparently taking on the reinforcements from the sea, which just leaves the fact that apparently garp and sengoku are just sitting on the sidelines doing nothing even though logically they'd want to take us down aswell
>>5557072This is what we get with a critical success? would we just have straight up died if we failed the roll.
>>5557072LYDIA!HER SOUL! WE CAN IMPART HER SOUL INTO SOMETHING! JAW'S ANCHOR, ANYTHING!If we have her soul, we can put it into a new body later!Take the memories too! Give them to somebody!
>>5557074... We didn't roll tho?
>>5557075FLIP THE FUCKING TABLE ON DEATHBE THE UNFAIRNESS ITSELF
"And... remember one thing. You're not some new Rocks, or new me, or new anyone. Kaido, the marines. None of them get it. You... are just you. Always was. And always will be. My... little... son."All the strength leaves her hand and her heart stops. In that moment the world falls silent. The noise of the marines and their dreadful machines, the shouting of your friends, the rumbling of cannon fire, all are gone as you hold on tightly to the hand that caressed you just a moment ago and weep. The great unending sadness makes you feel hopeless. As you curl whilst tightly hugging her you feel like you just went several years back in time. You feel cold and alone as you sob and cry. But you feel something. The years of battle have not gone away. Your body still knows how to survive. So you feel a presence coming up from behind. It's the clone of Jinbe coming at you, which your friends try to intercept but it slips under them through the ground. However you don't see it that way. The only thing you see when you turn around is..."I get it now."The fish-man cyborg erupts from the ground and tries to hit you in the head."Stop."You order it and it freezes. It's shaking as both its flesh and gears are trying to force it to move but it appears frozen mid-motion with its limbs shaking."Break."Cracks appear along its skin and spread throughout its body, green blood erupting from the wounds."Crumple."Its fingers bend backwards and roll up, the rest of its body slowly but steadily collapses on itself until it's an unrecognizable ball of junk and flesh."I get it now, mom. Thank you."You wipe your eyes clear with your forearm. Though you can't do anything about the fact that your eye is red and swollen you can stop the tears at least. Then you clear your throat and speak one word firmly."Stop!"The fighting ceases. Not just in front of you. Everywhere on the island. You carefully survey the area. There are the infernal machines and their masters.>Start with the pacifista>Start with the admirals
>>5557104>>Start with the admiralsLet's kill these guys
>>5557104>>Start with the admiralsWe can smash their toys all damn day, and they clearly don't give a shit. Hit them in their smug dumb fucking faces.
>>5557104>>Start with the pacifista
>>5557104>Start with the admirals
>>5557104>Start with the admiralsDoes silver consider the seraphim sentient with his voice of all things? like can he distingush independant thought from them? cause if he can then yeah i'd switch my vote to them
>>5557119They are more alive than the pacifista to him, so yes, they do register as living things in his mind
>>5557121>Start with the pacifistaWelp you heard me, like if silver saw the seraphim as just different pacifista i'd say go for the admiral for the same reason we'd kill an enemy instead of just breaking their weapon, but if silver sees them as independant living things no way he immediately does not jump them
>>5557104>Start with the admiralsThe Admirals are the true enemy here and are why Mom died. We will burn the world until it is naught but ash.
>Start with Admirals
>>5557138Yeah but lets say that this was just Random Marine number 37 who the admirals ordered to shoot eliza, do you think silver wouldn't rip through that guy first b4 moving to the admirals?
>>5557143Yes however, Silver has gone beyond blind rage. He has entered the Rage that caused the white man to split the sun twice over Japan.
>>5557104>Start with the pacifista
>>5557145and why would him being that angry make him ignore the person that killed eliza to take the people that ordered it? like yeah i'd agree if silver saw the seraphim as just machines/tools but QM already said he views them as living beings with their own thoughts, so no way silver doesn't immediately go for the group who actually murdered eliza to focus on the group that 1 degree removed murdered eliza
I think that's 5 vs 3 for taking on the admirals>writing3d10+10 best of 4DC 20, crit 25

Holy fucking shit RNGesus really wanted the admirals to take an ass beating.
>>5557168tbf not THAT insane, like each dice only needed to roll 5 to crit with a +10 on there
So spook, did we get a second awakening or just figure out how to apply King's Haki to everything?
>>5557172I assume its a conquerors haki thing considering we're not currently using our DF and a 2nd awakening literally an arc after we got our first and with nothing in canon even hinting at it is kinda stupid
"Murray. Take Eliza and leave. We're done here.""S-Silver-""Why are you hesitating?"You ask calmly."We have no more reason to be here. Take Eliza out of here. I want to give her a proper funeral. Tell everyone else that we're leaving.""B-But what about-""The machines don't matter. They'll come after me once they see their masters being in danger. I assume you can handle the rest. Go.""U-Understood. Come on guys. We're leaving!""And Murray. I don't want them to touch a single strand of her hair. I hope I was clear.""Yes, of course."They don't need much more encouragement as you start cracking your neck. After that you start walking slowly towards the admirals. With each step the sky grows darker as clouds black as coal gather above. They rumble with barely restrained fury and release a thick blanket of rain that washes over the battlefield. Things get frighteningly calm as the fresh water cleans the blood off the stone. Your ears pick up something but you don't pay it too much attention."Garp...""Yeah..."As you approach Akainu looks at you dismissively."Gone mad, have you? All the better. You'll save us the trouble of hunting you down next. But if you think with this you'll spare your comrades then-""Mad? Are you stupid? I'm not mad the least. If I got angry at you it'd be like spitting in the face of Elizas teachings.""Oh really? And what "teachings" are those supposed to be? How to be a monster? Because those very lessons are the reason we're all here. Face it, it would've been better if you just keeled over on that island of yours and knew your place as a slave.""I'm not gonna explain. Not like you'd get it. But she was right. You can't kill her or me in a way that matters. And you can't kill the pirates either. Not like it matters. You won't be doing anything soon.""Come on Fleet Admiral. The kid clearly lost it. Let me clean up this trash if he wants to die so bad.""Very well Aramaki. Do it.""Yessir!"Green bull steps forth and in front of him a whole forest erupts complete with trees, bushes, flowers and vines of all sorts. They all grow and expand in your direction. He's trying to wrap you up in them and use the plants to suck your body dry. But there is something interesting about all of this. He's not just making plants magically appear. He has roots coming out from his feet and burrowing in the ground and it's from those that this small jungle sprouts. It's all him. This is a logia fruit. Good.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TL8KazzwdAUYou grab the first vine that gets close enough and yank on it. It gets pulled taut and everything it's connected to follows suit. Every part of the forest from the smallest blade of grass to the thickest tree trunk is ripped from the ground in one swift motion, alongside Aramaki himself. Planting your heel firmly in the ground you start spinning and the whole forest follows you. Green Bull starts screaming.
>>5557183did we just rip his devil fruit out by the roots
>>5557189No, you ripped an interconnected forest out of the ground
>>5557189No? we just pretty much grabbed his legs and started spinning him
>>5557192yeah but he felt ALL of it, right?that's why he's screaming
>>5557194No. He's screaming because he is the forest, he's connected to it. You. Picked up. The whole forest. At once. He's connected to it. And he's being spun around
>>5557194i mean he's screaming from getting spun around in the air, we'd have to be using armament and squeezing really hard to hurt him otherwsie
So, given we crit, I imagine all the Admirals will die todayNot just the main 3...
>>5557200I very much doubt all the admirals will die today.
>>5557200One of them is definitely dying. hopefully, we can get kizaru too.
>>5557201The big 3 are definitely not going down. But the others? Not so sure. Imagine being the guy who killed Garp the Hero though. Wew.
>>5557200I highly doubt it, like if we can take on all the admirals here and kill them we win, i mean that literally, there is not a single character left in OP who can fight us except MAYBE im, like think we're gonna kill aramaki and probably highly injure and maybe cripple some of the others, like taking akainus arm, maybe give garp a new scar or something aswell
>>5557203garp is the only one i wouldn't want deadmihawk also needs his dick ripped off
>>5557204But then be forced to retreat, or slowly start getting beaten and kaido comes in and rescues because he's like "oh shit i want you to give me some of that when the world war starts, master whatever the fuck you just did and when i start the war come and fight me"
>>5557208Probably the latter rather than the former since silvers probably not in a state to back off rn
Oh yeah, we still gonna spar with Kaido after this war ends?
>>5557215Probably not, as said no way we're leaving here til everyones dead or until we're dead enough we can be dragged away, and don't think kaido would sit at outer heaven long enough for us to heal and he'd probably not want to spoil our inevitable fight to the death with him with some lazy foreplay sparring
You give him five more spins before hurling him high in the air. He keeps shouting as he helplessly soars up to and beyond the clouds. Given that he's so tough he'll probably survive. But this gives you plenty of time to focus on the others, who are all stunned by this display."What... is this?""I'm not sure Fleet Admiral-"Fujitora responds."But I fear we may have miscalculated.""Damn it all! Borsalino! Issho! Take him out!""Understood.""Yes, yes, got it."The two of them disappear from sight, then reappear on either side of you. Fujitora hits you on the shoulder with his blade, which has the weight of a mountain behind it. Meanwhile Kizaru is hitting you in the side with a sword made of light. They are both driving their weapons into you with great confidence."How many times do I have to teach this young man hmmm? Speed is power.""No. Power is power.""Wha-"Issho breaks free and slides back voluntarily but Kizaru is ironically too slow on the uptake as you spread your arms wide open and spin around with them. He gets smacked in the face and flies backwards. The admiral rolls around on the ground a few times before he gets up. He reaches for his face and finds that his glasses have been broken alongside his nose."O-Ow?"Meanwhile where they've struck you there are nothing but paper cuts. You look at Akainu."Your move."He grits his teeth and raises his arm."DAI FUNKA!"He throws a punch which turns into a tidal wave of magma. It grows and spreads in all directions in an attempt to swallow you. In response you raise your skeletal arm and thrust its palm into the flow of molten rock. At the moment of contact the red river stops and gets suspended as it was in that moment. None, not even those with the most keen of observation haki can see the coat of haki that spread all over it which froze it in place like it was a bug in a piece of amber."Crush."
In a moment all the gathered up magma gets compressed by that outer layer of haki into a pearl sized orb much to the astonishment of everyone. Even Akainu is taken aback by this but he quickly gathers himself to charge you again. This time he personally tries to punch you."MEIGO!"You catch his fist with your prosthetic arm which starts to burn even with the armament in place."I don't care what tricks you pull out! At the end of the day you're still just a lowly pirate and you'll die just like your whore mother!""Yes. One day I will. But you won't see that."You clench down on his fist even as your arm erupts in flames. Smoldering cracks appear all over it until the whole thing falls apart. Yet, Akainus arm remains in place. He tries to move forward, then to pull free. Neither works. Now he's starting to worry. He then watches as a black line connecting your stump and his fist appears out of thin air. It slowly thickens before his eyes and sprouts five branches at the end until it undeniably forms an arm. You clench on his fist with the phantom hand hard and he starts wincing."Now. Grit your teeth."You let go of him and he stumbles back a few feet as you clench your new arm into a fist."Silver Style: Black Voice."The punch that your mother taught you. The Silver Voice. Now enhanced with this new, no, this old power. It's hard to explain but it's all so clear now. This force, which has always been a part of you, always aided you in your most dire moments. Like that time when it exerted pressure on Jinbe, crushing the haki protecting him. Or whenever you needed something to break and it did once you ordered it to. You always wondered why it was such a big deal. Knocking out weak people is hardly useful when you can take them out effortlessly anyway. The answer is that most people simply use it wrong. Conquerors Haki. The name is apt. For it allows a person to conquer the world if they so desire by imposing their irresistible, adamant will on the world until it obeys.And now you will him be destroyed.
And that is it for today.Hope you enjoyed. I'll be seeing you guys sometime next week.Until then have a good night
>>5557232>And now you will him be destroyed.Beautiful vindication. We just fucking killed the Marine Head Honcho. We are now officially DO NOT FUCK WITH Status.
>>5557233Thanks for the long run, king!
>>5557234I mean its more the opposite, like genuinely would not be surprised if once we get back to outer heaven we need to look out for the bad weather of Giant fucking death beam
>>5557234I think we are about to get officially fucked We better choose a place with a cool name to bury eliza in because this is gonna be god valley pt 2
>>5557232https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c436AdCv_3IOh Ye Poor Soul, forgive him God, for the Devil walks this world, and he knows it not.
>TFW this whole arc was all for nothing because silver failed to do the one thing he came to do and no admiral is even gonna die because they have more plot armor then god.
>>5557805But the real treasure was the people we killed along the way, anon
>>5557805>The Marines attempted to destroy the new yonko before his power could be cemented>This has backfired>Marineford itself is wrecked, they have lost gods know how many men and the higher ranks are decimated. Possibly including admirals.>Silver is officially, without doubt, a superpower. >Eliza has died. >the Seraphim have been revealed, and with that the warlords might revolt. Especially Hancock who now has proof we can stand up to the WG and might officially ally Amazon Lily to us.But yea, nothing has happened.
>>5557805>>5557885What the fuck are you niggers talking about?Silver learned the lesson of death and gained the ability to change the world with sheer willpower.Eliza didn't die for nothing, she won. She gave her son everything he needed to live how he chose to.
>>5558257She may have gotten what she wanted, but I am still angry. Angry about marines.
>>5558257>>5557233Wait, did Eliza give us her D.?
>>5558261Silver D. Pirate
>>5558263Kermit D Frog.

I'm just popping in to notify you that I decided to take this week off as I'm feelinga bit under the weather right now. Apologies
Henlo frensApologies again for the skip last week. I am feeling better now and so I think it's appropriate that we continue things tomorrowHope to see you there
>>5567990The Cipher Pols did this.
Even before the attack physically connects Akainu can feel its impact. His stomach indents as if he was just shot by an invisible cannonball. The impact suffuses his whole being and spreads throughout his body. Even as his flesh turns into lava he still feels the damage reverberating through the molten rock. There is simply no escape for him. The sound the collision makes is that of a thin sheet of ice cracking over a half-frozen lake. Blood spurts from his mouth and recollections of a war long over flash in his mind.And yet... that's only the start.As soon as your knuckles physically touch him he moves. His legs lift off from the ground and he shoots out like a bullet fired from the barrel of a gun. He heads straight for New Marineford and those that can follow his flight see him hit the wall of the fortress and go through it. Soon a hole comes into view. The tunnel going from one end of the fort to the other visibly expands as more debris is carried off by the insane winds and breaks through the building.Your fist hangs in the air with black arcs of lightning trailing off from it and carving through the stone road. A single drop of haki falls off from your arm like a raindrop and it sounds like a cannonball being dropped once it hits the ground. You look past the arm and frown. He's still alive."Tough bastard."Looks like you'll have to smack him again once he comes back. But the next one will be the last. At the moment of contact you felt the vibrations flowing throughout his body. The same way your ears help guide you via echo location they revealed his weakness. You'll use that to tear him apart."Now then. Who's next?"Green Bull is still nowhere to be seen. But your ears do pick up his screams as he continues to ascend. That leaves only Fujitora and Kizaru out of the admirals."Uh ooooh. Issho-san. What are we looking at here?""I'm... not sure. Where I saw the young man now all I see is a void of possibility. My observation no longer picks him up, save for the gaping hole he leaves.""Hmmmmm. I see, I see. And what does that mean?""It means... that our numerical advantage is no longer a guarantee of our victory. Please be careful and take this seriously."Aside those two there are still the elders to worry about, and the pacifistae, and the remainder of the Shichibukai. Speaking of which, Dracule Mihawk casually starts walking over to you with his sword drawn. Once he's close enough he points it at you but shows no signs of hostility otherwise."This is awkward.""How so?""I'd like to do nothing more than to test myself against you now. But I'd like to do that without any distractions and you at full strength. Not to mention I got other things to worry about."He shoots a glance at Sentomaru and his own copy standing there."Shall we resume this later?"Looks like he's asking for a truce.>"Should've thought of that sooner, swordsman.">"Fine by me. Doesn't matter if I make you submit now or later.">Other?
>>5568866>>"Fine by me. Doesn't matter if I make you submit now or later."
>"Fine by me. Doesn't matter if I make you submit now or later."
>Fine by me. Doesn't matter if I make you submit now or later.
>>5568866>"Fine by me. Doesn't matter if I make you submit now or later."If we beat mihawk does that mean we have to fight zoro?
>>5568866>"Fine by me. Doesn't matter if I make you submit now or later.">>5568873Read the socials mate, Zoro already wants it.
Are we gonna pull a Xebec and force him into the crew?
>>5568878Who? Akainu? Cause we already have a marine in the crew and a second one would be bad mojo
>>5568882No, forcing people like that is to close to slavery. Making him fly our flag while he does whatever the fuck he wants... Eh, maybe. Solid maybe.
Hmm, think we could command the Seraphim to cause havoc? Or start killing Marines?That would be a way too get back at these fuckers, their own weapons killing them.
Mihawk gets to go unmolested>writing
Whats our current bounty atm?
>>5568923There is no person in the world who has the authority to decide that and isn't currently busy shitting himself
>>5568931Not even Imu or the Elder shits?
"Fine by me. Doesn't matter if you submit to me now or later.""I like your enthusiasm."With a flourish Mihawk rests the black sword on his shoulder as he looks at Sentomaru."Now then. Let me see how good of a job you did copying me.""WHAT?!"Sentomaru gasps."The hell are you saying Hawkeye? You're working for us!""Was. Up until I became aware that you copied me and made a weapon out of it. Now please, stand aside. I have no interest in the likes of you.""Tch. S-Hawk! You better show us what we spent all that money on!""Count me in on that.""WHAAAAT?! The Pirate Empress?"Boa Hancock jumps over to you with the help of her snake and bends backwards whilst looking at Sentomaru."Silence! How dare you vile fiends make a mockery of me like this?! UNFORGIVABLE! You must PAY!"She tilts her head to the side and looks at you."My apologies. I shall start fighting for you now.""That explains a few things."Mihawk looks at her in amusement but Hancock tries her best not to acknowledge him."Well... now that the backstabbing train has started I think I'll join."Now Edward Weevil shows up with the old hag on his shoulders doing the talking for him."I hope I'm not stepping out of line too hard."She looks at you through her sunglasses."It's a great pleasure finally meeting you Rocks.""W-W-W-WAIT A MINUTE! YOU CAN'T ALL JUST LEAVE ME LIKE THAT!"And finally it's the clown that shows his true colors by arriving."Phew. H-Hey! Look I'm sure we got off on the wrong foot! But I did not lift a finger against you! R-Right? So it's okay if I sign up as well?"You shrug. They may do as they please. One by one the worms have fallen in their place. So long as they remember to stay there you are fine with it. But the moment a single one of them gets out of line you'll make sure to remind them why they bent the knee."Fine by me. Handle those husks. But the fat one is mine.""Oy oy oy..."Sentomaru grips his axe."All but one of the Shichibukai turned traitor?! And now I gotta face them on top of Cavalier?! Give me a break."You use Shakushi to move right up to Sentomaru, which unnerves him greatly as he did not sense you moving."Don't worry. You won't fight anybody."He wastes no time raising his weapon to swing down at you. True to his skill he manages to imbue it with plenty of armament and he's skilled enough that the weapons edge extends beyond the confines of the steel thanks to the haki. However he realizes that something's very wrong when the invisible edge of the armament does not as much as scratch your skin. And when the iron reaches your neck all the force behind it bounces off of you and back into the weapon, splitting it in half. As the top half of the axes blade flies off Sentomaru stares at you in disbelief. Right up until you pluck out one of his eyes in one swift motion.
Sentomaru grabs his face and falls to his knee screaming as you toss his lost eyeball at him. Finally your eyepatch itches just a little less."Come on. Quit being such a baby. You'll get used to it.""SERAPHIM! KILL HIM!"The robots start moving but you simply turn around and walk away."Handle them. Or join the fat one."Hancock, Weevil, Mihawk and the clown engage the little murder machines. Well, Buggy is not going to be much of a help to anyone so even with the Jinbe facsimile down they are still outnumbered. But that's their problem."Now then-"You look back over at the podium where Garp, Sengoku and Tsuru are still standing. Sengoku seems just about ready to jump you but he's being held back by Garp for some reason. It looks like this previous display was still well within what he'd consider "acceptable" in the current situation. Ignoring them for the time being you look back at Fujitora and Kizaru."If you feel like stopping me now would be a good time to start.""What do you mean?">Attack them>Start destroying the island>Other?
>Kill them both
>>5568971>Start destroying the island
>>5568971>>Attack themThey are in the way, and I want to get to Akainu. And I don't want to destroy the island because, to be honest, there are to many potentially good storylines and characters invested here... Also we kind of told everyone, including Murray, that we're leaving so if these two wouldn't mind just stepping aside so we can off their head honcho that'd be great.
>>5568971>>Start destroying the island
Well the admirals are not having a good day, that's for sure>writingNow this is still a little difficult3d10+10 best of 4Dc 24, crit 27

>>5569017Yes we are!>>5569025Nice. Very nice
Fujitora uses his sword to help himself get up and Kizaru springs up in a very lively manner. He exhales loudly and looks at his colleague."Looks like we got ourselves into one fine mess huh? Hmmm. Tell me Issho-san. What are our odds of doing this without breaking the island?""Slim to none. But I'm afraid if we don't fight without any restraints we won't have a chance.""I was afraid you'd say that. Hmmmm?"Kizaru looks up."Ooooh. The cavalry's here!"Ryokugyu flies down with a flower sticking out of his back."Sorry fellas. I couldn't stop flying. I kept going and going until I almost passed out, then started falling. What did I miss?"Ooooh. Nothing. Cavalier just punched the Fleet Admiral through Marineford. No biggie.""W-What? H-How dare he?! Where is Akainu? Is he alright?""We don't know. But it didn't look like he died.""Good! I want him to see what I'm about to do to this brat!""Better be careful Aramaki boy. We just discussed how we proooobably shouldn't be holding back for this one.""Yeah! Agreed! I won't stop until my shoes pass this kids throat after I'm done shoving them up his ass! Kizaru! Do the thing!""The thing?""The thing!"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mbsWgCeScMoKizaru flies up into the air and spreads his arms as Aramaki spreads his roots across the ground. Kizarus body glows incandescent, as if he's become not just pure light but a star shining over the battlefield."Amaterasu no Okami!"Kizaru slowly starts floating down but the sun stays, its rays nurture the greenery of Aramaki which begins to spread like wildfire, forming various extremities, mostly fists but a few formed swords or other weapons."KINNIKU MORI MORI!"Wings burst from your back and you start flying around to avoid the attacks but since these are just plants they aren't as bound by bodily limitations as flesh. When one fist misses another sprouts from it and attacks you again. The whole area becomes a tangled mess of tree bark as hard as iron. Still even as it threatens to tie you up in a solid block of wood you manage to slip out only to see the mini-sun shining bright in tandem with Kizaru."Yasakani no Magatama!"A deluge of light arrows rains down on you from two sources. They bombard the area around you and explode violently in an unending deluge of explosives. Using your reinforced wings you manage to swat them away one by one and keep up with them but that leaves you open for an attack from below. Vines wrap around your ankles as Aramaki swipes you off your feet."GOTCHA!"With all his might he swings you into the block of wood he made before, causing it to burst into a million splinters. He lets go of you at that point only for you to arrive at Fujitora who's been charging his blade up until now."Raging Tiger!"And he slashes you right across the chest with the weight of a world.
As the gravitational force carries you off well past the shore and over the sea Aramaki cheers."ALRIGHT! We did it guys! Man Akainu will be so proud of us! Now to take care of the trash-""No..."But Isshos expression darkens as he falls to his knees in despair."How... how could the distance between us be so vast?""Come on Fujitora! Now's not the time for one of your stupid jokes!""Oh dear... It looks like we haven't managed to reach him at all... This is gonna hurt."https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3TOzkCIaXjIOf course you overheard all of that as you stabilized yourself in the air with your wings. Flapping your wings so you float upright you look down at the battlefield as it spreads out before you. There is much confusion on both sides and uncertainty. You think about fixing that, and carving the lesson into their minds so they can never forget it. You raise both your arms to your side. First you look at the right one, still flesh and blood. It erupts in fire as you command the blazing heat within to come out. Then... start feeding the fire with the new "fuel" you discovered. As the flame consumes the haki it turns a deep, inky black with only hints of orange and red floating within. It can no longer be called fire for it has mass and weight, sticking to and dragging down whatever it burns. You look to your left and it blooms with arcs of lightning which you surround with and mold into a bolt with black radiance. Hurling both forward into the black clouds you watch as they hungrily consume your offering and give birth to more of it. With a simple push you send it all forth to the area where you left the two admirals. They are the only ones worthy enough of such gift."Silver Style-"Your voice shakes both heaven and earth."Black Sacrament."Nobody is really sure what happened after that. Most of whom have looked at the area prior to the attack lost their sights right after, sometimes even their hearing. Those that were lucky enough not to gaze at it only remember the deep, rumbling feeling in their stomach and the hair on their bodies standing up as it was charged with electricity. Yet all of them, even those who suffered permanent damage were overcome with an indescribable sense of relief. They were spared.The same could not be said of the admirals who have seen the pillar of fiery hate and baleful light descend upon them and obliterate the very ground they were standing on alongside everything else.Flying over once the attack finished you see a crater as smooth as polished glass. At its rim you see Fujitora lying motionless but alive. He most likely tried to float away with a rock and got just far enough before disaster struck. You don't sense Kizaru. The coward probably ran. But you sense something on the bottom.
Please, for the love of god, tell me we at least killed one of these guys.Plot armour is too strong, Akainu survived a literal death attack.
Deep, at the bottom of the hole you made, where water trickled down from the edges and pool up you see a small plant, a water lily. It reeks of Green Bulls voice. He's trying to regrow himself after being blasted by your attack."You gotta be kidding me-"The lily sings."How... how does that make any sense? Please Sakazuki we need you-"You look at this pathetic mongrel of a man as he's trying to reconstitute himself, wondering what should be done with him.>Kill him here. This hole will make a good grave for him>Rip him out by his roots, drag him up and publicly execute him>Death would be too good for him. He won't get off that easily.>Other?
>Kill him here. This will make a good grave for him.>>"After you three, he's next"No chances
>>5569101>>Kill him here. This hole will make a good grave for him
>>5569104I mean the way this is worded implies we're killing fujitora, kizaru and akainu b4 killing greenbull
>>5569106No it doesn'tAfter you 3(Greenbull, Kizaru, Issho) he's next(Akainu)We going after Akainu last
>>5569101>>Kill him here. This hole will make a good grave for himDon’t waste time on a spectacle just kill him.
>>5569101>Kill him here. This hole will make a good grave for himYou fucked around, now its time to find out.
Well. That's an admiral down>writing
You see the tiny plant wriggling and slowly expanding as it absorbs whatever nutrients it can from the environment. Which gives you an idea on how to finally take care of this annoying weed. You take out an emergency ration from one of your pockets, one prepared especially for you by Gu. After unwrapping it you drop the food bar into the water and as it dissolves and gets picked up by the plant you can hear its voice slowly fading as its leaves brown and wilt."Sakazuki... I don't feel so good. Have we won yet? I-I think I'm gonna go sleep a bit. I can't wait to usher in the new ear with you when I wake up..."You feel the life leave the little plant. But just for good measure you stomp on it one last time. Just to be safe.
>>5569137A new ear with you
And that is it for today.Thanks for playing.See you guys next time
>>5569137So that's one Admiral dead, do I hear two?
>>5569144So on a scale of 1 to brown, how much are the higherups freaking out?
>>5569181Brown, Brown Brown
I wonder if this'll buy Silver a new epitaph.
>>5569206>Silver jacked the Dark King title
We better surpass Whitebeard Bounty for this
>>5569144Thanks for running Spooks!
>>5569206He will remain Cavalier Silver, known for his wrath and vengeful nature.
>>5570003Camazotz Cavalier?Cursed Cavalier?
>>5570010You do not get to have two epithets.
>>5570012If Blackbeard can have two fruits then Silver can have two fucking names.Besides, it would probably be a replacement, not an additional one.
>>5570022Fine.You can get a replacement but if you do it can only be to "Brown Hair".
>>5570012Hundred beastBig MomRed hairBlack/White beardYou can however have descriptors to the epithet
>>5570012Well big mom probably had an epithet b4 big mom, like she was a problem for years b4 she turnt 18 and started popping out babies, like wouldn't be surprised that she originally had an epithey like "charlotte "big girl" linlin" and after she became known for popping out babies ppl just started calling her big mom instead and eventually it offically changed, hell roger probably had an epiphet b4 he became pirate king if that technically count
>>5570334and hell silvers specifically looking to get his own title above others, so a new epiphet to denote his new top dog status would probably be something he'd enjoy, like how no one had ever been "king of the pirates" b4 roger, i'd say something like "pirate emperor" but that has connotations with boa, "king of the sea" maybe? for if silver ever destroys the WG/Marines to show he's the top dog of everything not just pirates
>>5570454hmm might be a tad too celestial dragonesque for silvers taste, getting called a god
>>5570481We rule over a place called "Heaven" I don't know what you'd expect.
>>5570454"Chain breaker" "The free""The freest man alive"
>>5571237"The suneater"Seeing as we are breaking down the "light" in the world, marines and celestial dragons."Dragon killer/slayer"Might also work
>>5571240Plus you know the whole mesoamerican bat god motif.
What about the "Mad Emperor"?
>>5571240Silver Suneater.Stealing a bit from warhammer there but I like where your heads at
Oh shit, this is still a thing. Gotta catch up soon
Jesus Christ, we have become genuinely terrifying. I motion that we have our ultimate form, Kain, as part of our name. Because let's not kid ourselves, we're practically as ruthless as Kain now, if not moreso. Also, couldn't help but read this update to this:https://youtu.be/YNWSDvDqm9g
