After disposing of them, you returned to your ship, where you received a call from your mother, who demanded you return home. After taking a few random jumps to confuse anybody who might be following you, you returned to Earth, only to find you had been followed. The power level you sensed was unlike any you had felt before, and everyone, even your mothers, became very afraid. The only one who didn't was your little sister, Erica. She revealed a powerful transformation you had only seen your father use, and ran off to confront the threat, despite the protests of your mothers.

How is this /tg/ related oh wait, it's not.>>>/a/
>>29257577>>29257461>Family fights Cooler>The Guys fight BrollyPlease tell me we will meet Brolly
so I have an idea. let's piss off the moms by telling them everything we've ever done bad then have them go super
Let's hope we see some more signature attacks
Your little sister and your mothers fly off into the distance, leaving you with Goku, Ragus, Onia, and most of your siblings. Everybody looks at you expectantly, apparently waiting to follow whatever you do.>A. Say something>B. Do something
>>29257577>Inb4 one of the Saiyan children becomes a Touhou Fan and a cosplayer... Yeah.
>>29257746>A."Even with that massive of a power boost, Erica isn't strong enough to do this herself.">B.Follow them all.
>>29257746>AWe need to get you guys to a safe place. I'm not letting you get caught in the crossfire.And as much as I hate to admit it, but I'm not strong enough to face whatever's coming.But I can sure as hell protect you.
>>29257746>A"You should all have felt it: she's strong, but not even close to strong enough. Ragus, Onia, you take care of everyone else. There's probably going to be a lot of PTO elite showing up. Goku, let's see what we can do to help Erica and our moms.">BGet going
>>29257843This is obviously the best course of action.
>>29257866Voting for the Samwise "but I can carry you" option
>>29257843>>29257860>>29257882"You should all have felt it" you tell the others. "She's strong, but not even close to strong enough. Ragus, Onia, you take care of everyone else. There's probably going to be a lot of PTO elites showing up. Goku, let's see what we can do to help Erica and my moms."Goku nods and takes off, flying in the same direction Erica and your moms went. The others all stand and stare at you, looking nervous.>A. Say something>B. Do something
>>29257922"You should try to look for the Dragonballs. Be careful, guise."
>>29257922>A."We can do it. I know we can. Dad beat Frieza to secure a future for us, so it's up to us to beat this guy and secure us a present.">B.Follow Goku.
>>29257922>ARev up those dragonballs, kids. Never hurts to be careful.>BBlast off
>>29257922>A"Don't be nervous. This guy may be strong, but our old man's stronger. I felt it when he was fighting the androids... and when he gets back he's gonna be SO pissed.""Take care of each other.">BGet going.
>>29257965"And I don't mean the gift kind."
>>29257950>>29257971"Careful" would be to not gather them until Cooler is gone, then to clean up the aftermath.Because having them in one place surrounded by the strongest fighters on the planet is practically handing them to him on a silver platter.
>>29258015Voting >>29257984No dragonballs yet.
>>29258042>>29257984>>29257965>>29257985"Don't be nervous" you tell everybody. "This guy may be strong, but our old man is stronger. And trust me, when he gets back he is going to be SO pissed. We can do it. I know we can. Our dad beat Frieza to secure a future for us. Now it's up to us to beat this guy and secure us a present."Selri and Collie nod."We'll go find the real young ones" Selri tells you."We'll keep them with us and make sure they stay safe" Collie tells you.>A. Say something>B. Do something
>>29258121Nod and get going.

>>29258170>>29258184>>29258185>>29258201>>29258214You nod at them, then turn and take off, speeding towards what could be your final battle.>MeanwhileA large, Saucer shaped ship approaches the planet known as 'Earth'. Inside, sitting in a hovering pod, is an alien creature with mostly purple skin, though the majority of its head, its shoulders, and part of its chest are white. It's forehead is a dark blue, and the creature has a long tail, as well as three, large toes on each foot, capable of gripping just as well as fingers. It's hands are humanlike, with each having five fingers (including thumbs) and its body shape is humanoid in appearance.The alien looks at the view screen taking up much of the space in front of him, displaying an image of Earth. He studies both its image and the data next to that image intently."Interesting, this world could fetch a high price" he says aloud.Aliens of various species turn to look at him, some nodding, others giving no real reaction other than wide eyes of terror. The being in the chair is used to such reactions, to the point where he no longer even finds it amusing. His chair lowers to the ground, and he rises to his feet, approaching the view screen. After a few seconds, he turns to a red skinned alien, sitting at a computer."You are certain this is where the ship has landed?" he asks the red skinned alien."Yes, my lord" he responds, keying a few commands into his computer.The image of Earth changes, now showing a video of a large spacecraft flying towards it.The red skinned alien turns to his master."Excellent" his master tells him. "Have we taken any power readings yet?""They should be coming through now, my lord" the red skinned alien tells him.The video of the ship heading for Earth vanishes, and in its place a series of numbers appear. The eyes of the red skinned alien widen."This can't be right" he says. "The data suggests that there are several beings on this planet with power levels-
>>29258428-in the hundreds of thousands, even in the millions!""I believe the data is correct" his master tells him. "This is very interesting. Perhaps we have finally found the beings responsible for killing Frieza.""Unlikely, my lord" the red skinned alien tells him. "Impressive as these power levels are, they are far lower than that of lord Frieza.""Perhaps" his master conceded. "Still, it is not common to find so many powerful beings in one place. I am most interested in finding out who these people are.">MeanwhileYou find Erica, Goku, and your mothers gathered on a large rocky outcropping in the middle of a wasteland to the North. Erica is back in her normal state, her usual happy smile on her face. Goku and your mothers look anxious, and you can understand why.Erica runs over and gives you a hug. "Hello big brother!">A. Say something>B. Do something
>>29258501>B.Hug her back.>A."Hey Erica. How's it hanging?"
>>29258501>A"Hey, kiddo.""I left the older kids in charge. Between them, they can handle more than a few like the ones we wasted out in space."
>>29258658>>29258675You hug her back. "Hey Erica, how's it going, kiddo?"She grins up at you. "Good! We're gonna fight some bad guys!"You look at your mothers. "I left the older kids in charge. Between them, they can handle more than a few like those we killed in space."Salta nods. "Good, now we wait for our mysterious enemy to show."Erica jumps up and down excitedly. "This is gonna be so much fun!""This is not a game!" Fita yells at her. "This isn't safe for you."Erica turns towards her mother. "But I wanna help!">A. Say something>B. Do something>C. Knock her out while her back is turned, keep her out of this fight
>>29258813>A."Even if it isn't safe, Erica is the best chance we've got."
>>29258813>AWe know you do, Erica. But that doesn't mean you can. Even I'm not ready. Mom, Spina and Fita have been doing this for far longer, they trained for this kind of thing. They were professional soldiers.And even they aren't sure. What makes you think we're ready?
>>29258813"Nothing personal, kid."
>>29258813>A"Of course you do. But this isn't like sparring at all, and if you really want to help you'll follow your mom's lead.""She's been at this longer than both of us combined, Erica."
>>29259162Voting for the latecomer >>29259249
>>29259249 I will also vote for this: >>29259162As powerful as she may be, she lacks experience. Good technique and experience can trump raw strength, although in this matchup we probably don't have either.
>>29259162>>29259275>>29259440"Of course you do" you tell her. "But this isn't like sparring, at all. If you really want to help, you'll follow mom's lead. She's been at this longer than both of us combined, Erica."She pouts. "Fine...."The massive power level is getting closer, and you suddenly see a large ship in the distance, touching down in the middle of the wasteland. You see row after row of aliens in battle armor emerging from the ship. Each of them appear to be wearing scouters.>A. Say something>B. Do something
>>29259536>BSense their powers. Try and establish an average for them, and see if there are any exceptional ones among them.
>>29259536>AHey look, they've got goons. Or are these mooks?>Bki sense
>>29259620>>29259630"Hey, look. They've got goons...or mooks, or whatever" you comment.You feel your mothers lower their power levels as they watch the soldiers below.You reach out and sense the power levels of the soldiers. They are far more powerful than you were expecting, each seeming stronger than even the strongest of the enemies you faced on that far off planet. You count at least five dozen of them.>A. Say something>B. Do something>C. Knock Erica out
>>29259964Well that makes sense. Cooler's far more competent than Freeza, he wouldn't tolerate mediocrity in his troops just because he has more of those back in the sip.
>>29259964>B.Wait for something to happen.
>>29259964>CThis is probably going to backfire but we don't stand a chance, better to run away and live to fight another day
>>29259964>A"Are Collie, Selri and the others powering down?">BSee if we can tell for ourselves.
>>29260047>>29260074And have to watch over an unconscious kid the whole time? Are you really that dumb?
>>29260121Y'know what at this point I don't care as long as it isn't C because that's stupid.
>>29260181Woah woah woah you mean Erica right
>>29260181>AHail Lord Cooler!
>>29260133>>29260074>>29260047While Erica has her back turned to you, you deliver a quick hit to the back of her neck, knocking her unconscious. You feel her power level lower as she falls at your feet. Your moms, turn and look at you in shock.>A. Say something>B. Do something
>>29260221>AHail Lord Cooler!
>>29260221A. If she can't work through that, she's not going to be useful in this fight.B. Korin's Tower, Senzu Beans.
>>29260221gg team get ready for the afterlifei honestly don't believe anyone could be stupid enough to have chosen that without trying to sabotage us
>>29260243We don't know who cooler is
>>29260221You have to give it longer than three minutes, asshole.If you'd waited there would have been as many votes against C as there were for it, cause I'd have thrown my lot in with >>29260156
THE VOICES IN MY HEAD TOLD ME TO
>>29260282First three votes, read the OP
>>29260221Back that train the fuck up, son.
>>29260221>A"Look, she doesn't stand a chance. It's better to get her to some place safe"
>>29260320D. Blow up the planet
>>29260320There were two votes for knocking Erica out, assclown. And a third post that was deleted by its poster before I could read it.
>>29260257>>29260342Vote>>29260382I quoted three separate posts in the one where you knocked Erica out. But go ahead, cry more.
>>29260404AddenumSUPPRESS OUR POWER IF WE'RE RUNNING AWAY.
>>29260404Yes, and one was posted BEFORE >>29260121I don't particularly care about the vote itself, I just want you to admit that you fucked up the vote.
>>29260516Not until you fix your mistake.
>There are people ITT who seriously want QM hand holdingFor shame
>>29260745There are people in this thread who want the QM to follow his own rules.
>>29260771But he did.It went CBCABC
>>29260791No, he didn't. >>29260047C>>29260068B>>29260074C>>29260081A+B>>29260121VOTE>>29260133C>>29260156Anything but C>>29260158C>>29260210>>29260211Junk>>29260221Update.C only ever got two votes at a time, likely the same two posters in both votes. Following OP's own rules, C should not have won.
>>29260899>likely the same two posters in both votes.Because only samefags agree with each other, of course.
>>29260899I voted for C once, unless the person who voted for the second C voted again you'd be wrong.
>>29260950>>29260952SOM has not counted separate votes towards the same target for two reasons: first is that you cannot assume that each post is a distinct voter, and second is that if one person in the second vote agrees with two people in the first, that would seal it.And that's not how it's supposed to work.
>>29260899Ah, stuff is going down and I was busy, damn it.
>>29261108Nothing's "gone down" in the last half hour or so.
>>29261313Didn't look at any post times. Did SOM leave or something?
>>29261417No one's voted to break the tie a little bit ago.
>>29261417Not sure. It was pointed out that he may have botched a vote, he called a vote twice afterward, and nobody voted for either.
Soooo... how's everyone doing? Anyone have any weekend plans?
>>29261736Imma make a fuckhuge bonfire outta my neighbors christmas trees
yo how does it feel to be the stupidest quest followers on /tg/?I mean, anyone who participates in a quest thread is retarded, but you guys are the worst of the lot.
>>29260342>>29260257Sooo....anybody gonna vote?
>>29261804I've already said it. I'm not voting again until you rectify the fact that knocking Erica out at no point earned more than two on any vote you called for it.I don't care how you do it.
>>29261804It appears too many people are butt-flustered.Or migrated to Humble's.
>>29261882>>29261839>>29260257"If she can't work through that she's not going to be useful in this fight" you tell them.Fita glares murderously at you, while Salta and Spina simply glare at you disapprovingly.You suggest going to Korin's tower to get senzu beans."I doubt we'd make it in time without being spotted" Salta tells you."Fita still has some left, anyway" Spina adds."Four total, we need to use them wisely" Fita confirms.>A. Say something>B. Do something
>>29261953Gotta leave.Goodnight, Som.
>>29261953>B.Wait for something to happen.
>>29261988Goodnight, sweet dreams
>>29261953>A. "Just to make sure you all understand why I knocked her out: the voices make me do some really stupid shit.">B.Wait for them to come to us.
>>29262080>>29262024After a few moments, you see a row of the soldiers rise up and begin flying, but not towards you. Instead, they're flying towards West City. "Oh no..." Spina groans, rising to her feet and preparing to give chase.>A. Say something>B. Do something
>>29262169>A. "Let's all attack them, so we are safer. Don't need anyone getting injured before the big fight">B. Fly with the group
>>29262169>A"We should all go together."
>>29262210>>29262217"We should all go together" you say. "It's safer that way. We don't need anybody injured before the big fight."Spina nods, and together, all of you take off, chasing after the fleeing soldiers.On Earth there is something known as Murphey's law. The next few moments are an excellent example of it.As you and the others chase the soldiers down, each of you are struck through the chest by energy beams. The beams are not powerful enough to kill you. At least, not right away, but you're losing blood, and your vision is fading. You can dimly feel the power levels of several soldiers rapidly approaching.>A. Say something>B. Do something
>>29262432>B.We had beans when we started traveling with the twins, right? We probably still have one on us, so we should take it and save everyone.
>>29262432>B. Let ourselves fade, it's nothing we can fix right now...
>>29262534Yes, munch the bean we hit that one dude in the eye with.
>>29262432Som, was it the soldiers who shot at is? Or would we need to turn to look at our attackers? If so>BTurn to see who attacked us?
>>29262534>>29262536Agreed, but keep our power level low until we can figure out what the fuck just happened.
This is divine punishment for choosing whoring....Hey som, think that bullshit can be interrupted (or prevented) via Frank getting visions? Because that at least would be amusing.
>>29262657If it was, it's yet another case of everyone getting punished for decisions I voted against.
>>29262657Bardock will fight CoolerFrank will be busy fighting Legendary Super Saiyan Brolly
>>29262712We should have went for the strawpoll on that one. I refuse to believe the majority of us are douchebags.
>>29262739You want the quest to end so soon?
>>29262739>Bardock will fight CoolerNot unless he's skipping to SS2 right the fuck now.
>>29262730Munching the senzu we've still got on us won, SOM. I'd specify this iteration >>29262630
>>29262755Brolly's power level is 1,2 billion. It's not that bad, Frank at SSJ Kaio Ken x4 is 1,4 billion. If Vegeta, Nappa and Raditz all manage to get stronger/ssj and lend him strength.>>29262769If he had SSJ + Kaio Ken x3 he'd be stronger than Cooler.
>>29262730Sensu beans if possible, and look at our attackers with reduced power level
>>292627394 Super Saiyans couldn't beat Broly.We've only got one.
>>29262793Frank can barely handle the regular kaioken at super saiyan, remember?
>>29262793Broly's power level is higher than 1.2 billion
>>29262841He did use the x4 against Gero for a short moment though. If he gets a bit more training, and goes all out x5 he could try to oneshot Brolly into the sun.
>>29262841Maybe he'll have an easier time of it at full-power super saiyan? Assuming he gets there of course (if we were in control during those timeskips he would have done that a long time ago.)
>>29262784>>29262630>>29262572>>29262534>>29262536>>29262809You feel your strength fading back, and find yourself wishing you had a senzu bean. But wait, you do have one! You fish out the bean you have left over from the space trip, and quickly eat it. You feel your strength returning, but keep your power level low while you look for your attacker. You can't see anything beyond the waves of soldiers flying right for you. A pair of them grab Fita as she tries to open the pouch of senzu beans she has with her. She's too weak to get away, and they drag her back to the ship, the beans falling down to the Earth in the process.Salta and Spina are soon grabbed as well, and flown back towards the ship. Several of the soldiers are approaching you quickly.>A. Say something>B. Do something
>B. Get the beans then pretend to fade out.>>29262884You're right. It's 1,4 billion.
>>29262919Offer to suck their dicks if they let you go
>>29262919>B.Wait to get grabbed and see where we're taken, unless our life or that of our mothers' are threatened at any given moment in which case begin the fight.
>>29262919>BLet them carry us to the ship.Beats having to fight our way there, and standard practice is to spread the beans out so Salta and Spina should each have a bag as well.
>>29263034>>29263000>>29262945You let yourself get taken, not resisting as the soldiers seize you and fly back to the ship. You are carried inside, down a long, curved hallway, and into a large room. As you watch, your moms are put into restraints on the walls, their arms and legs bound, and find yourself being carried towards similar restraints.>A. Say something>B. Do something
>>29263093>B.Break free, free mums.
>>29263093>AUm, those women are spoken far, and if you go any further than this it will be pedophilia.
>>29263093>BQuickly sense to see what sort of shape they're in, and whether the strongest power level is on the ship with us.If it seems like Salta, Spina, or Fita are in trouble, or if the strongest guy isn't nearby, kill off the soldiers with a x3 kaioken.
>>29263162make me nerd
>>29263093>AI think I need an adult>Bki sense the moms, make sure they're alright
>>29263159>>29263146>>29263122You sense the strength of your mothers, and feel that they are weakening, less than half as strong as they would normally be, and barely conscious. You also sense the massive power level is onboard the ship and approaching this room.>A. Say something>B. Do something
>>29263218Don't say anything unless it's "kaioken".Anything else tips them off that we're back up to full, and we lose the element of surprise.
>>29263228>B. Try to send them a bit energy, even if just to make them stay alive.
>>29263250I'd second this.Since Cooler's here already, it's not like we're gonna get away.
>>29263241That's why you say it weakly, as if you can only just barely speak
>>29263228>A."Kaio-ken.">B.Free the mums, get them the hell out.
>>29263333Send them energy
Tonight on out of character Z, everybody dies.
>>29263333Voting >>29263250Kaioken here gets us nowhere. It's not nearly strong enough to get away from Cooler. Trying to help Salta, Spina, and Fita recover puts us on slightly less-bad footing.
>>29263349>>29263250>>29263272You send them all a tiny bit of your energy, enough to keep them all alive. You feel weaker, but not horribly so. Still, you are no longer at full strength, and you have no idea how much the energy will help your mothers. You are soon restrained on the wall as well, hanging as the soldiers step back. After a few seconds, two new people enter the room.One is a humanoid, red skinned alien with short white hair. The other closely matches the description your parents gave you of Frieza.The red skinned alien looks you over curiously, then begins examining your mothers.>A. Say something>B. Do something
>>29263506>AWoah guy, how bout you keep your hands where I can see em.
>>29263506>B. Wait and see, but if he tries to do anything weird to them:>A. "Hey, look, don't touch"
>>29263506>A"Hey, red guy? You try anything and I can guarantee they'll be telling stories of your suffering for centuries after I'm through with you.""So, I take it one of you is related to Frieza?"
>>29263556I vote for this ^^^
>>29263506Wait quietlyAlternately, quietly learn to be psychic and communicate with the others
>>29263600Eh. I'll go with this >>29263573
Can we not mention Frank and the others? Let's leave them SOME possible element of surprise.
>>29263635you just did
>>29263635Yeah let's not be Gohan 2.0 and just mouth off about how our dad is super cool and is going to get you, meanies, just wait.
>>29263635He should be able to tell none of us were the ones that killed Frieza. In fact, that's probably the reason he elected to capture us. I wouldn't go out of my way to mention Frank, but it could work as leverage to get us out of the immediate situation.
>>29263692Voting for staying quiet
>>29263692Voting AGAIN for >>29263573Playing it slow works to our advantage here.
>>29263752>>29263727>>29263631>>29263573You keep quiet and watch as the doctor steps back, pulling out some strange sort of device. He looks at the other alien, who nods at him. He steps forward and points it at Salta.>A. Say something>B. Do something
>>29263990B. Do somethingMouth blast that fucking device.Snarky comment: You should know that little kids don't know how to shut their mouths.
>>29263990>A. "Hey, what're you doing, mate?"Use a fake australian accent, for no reason at all.
>>29264030Voting for mine
>>29264076Somnius I just realizedWhere in the hell is Goku?
>>29264127Something sneaky, no doubt.
I'm voting for blasting the device and saying something about how "No aliens are gonna probe my anus!" or something
>>29264300>>29264262>>29264030>>29264031Blast the thing then say whatever.
>>29264031>>29264030"OI GIT! WHAT YO DOING TO MUMSIES!" "If you gabbers wanna shove probes down somebody's chocolate rail, then don't drag me mum to it."
>>29264387>>29264262>>29264108>>29264031>>29264023You open your mouth and a wave of energy incinerates the device."Stop!" you tell, as the two aliens focus their attention on you."Well, doctor, it seems one of them is awake" the Frieza-like alien comments."Yes, it appears that way" the red skinned alien says, approaching you. "Tell me, who are you, what race do you come from?">A. Say something>B. Do something
>>29264464>A. "I'll cooperate and tell you every single detail, as long as the ladies get medical attention. Please..."
Is it just me, or has quality of participation somehow taken ANOTHER nosedive around here?
>>29264484This could easily turn sour, but it has my support.
>>29264484Not "every detail", but make our cooperation conditional on Salta, Spina, and Fita getting patched up.
>>29264464>A. Say something"We are borg, prepare to be assimilated."
>>29264524>>29264530Don't take thing so literally. glad there are no bluff checks
>>29264581When you put a thing in quotes, SOM is going to use it exactly.
>>29264581I mean it could turn sour because "he cares about these people let's threaten them".
>>29264464>A. Say something"We are Daleks, this one is called Dock."
>>29264608Man, you know that if the character says "I'll tell you everything" but you don't do the action "tell him everything" then it doesn't count right? Unless SOM decides to play 'haha screw the players'.I mean, there is a thing called lying afterall..
>>29264627And then we explode a part of his ship.The only reason things are going as smoothly as they are is that we've kept NEUTRAL. We are neither cooperating nor are we causing a problem.
>>29264677Since when does SOM decide to NOT screw the players?
>>29264742I think that's five times now you've called me out specifically for being right about something.
>>29264742Sooooom! I trusted you, deceiver! Heh still, phrases =/= actions, so it's still not valid
>>29264464"I am Worf of the Klingons."
>>29264484>>29264524>>29264530"I'll cooperate and tell you every single detail, as long as the ladies get medical attention" you tell them. "Please...."The red skinned alien looks at the Frieza-like alien, who stares at you intently."Doctor, prepare treatment for our guests" he orders.As the red skinned alien leaves, the Frieza-like alien approaches you."Before I get them medical help, I want some proof that you will uphold your word" he tells you. "What race are you part of?">A. Say something>B. Do something
>>29264855>A. "Well, I'm just 'saiyan' we are good folk"
>>29264900It's an obvious lie. He knows what we are just as well as we do.
>>29264855Saiyan Although not much of a race anymore, or so I hear.
>>29264895>>29264905Either of these.
>>29264855"I'm a halfbreed between a beastman and a human."
>>29264905>BWave fluffy tailAs an aside, Somnius, is the red-skinned alien someone who knows the series would recognize? It's not pre-Ginyu Jeice, is it?
>>29264938>>29264938Master raceSaiyanWe should be honest about at least this, guys
>>29264938Just so you know, SOM, there are three votes now for waving our tail at him.
If he asks how did we manage to get this strong, we should totally tell him that there's this black genie living on top of a tower that trained him.
>>29264987>>29264973>>29264944>>29264905>>29265026You wave your fluffy tail at him, and he nods."Saiyan, I suspected as such" the alien tells you. "It seems Frieza was not nearly as thorough in destroying your kind as he thought. I have to wonder if that's due to incompetence on his part, or resilience on your part." He takes a step back and looks at your mothers. "Judging by the tails, I'm assuming those two are saiyans as well" he says, pointing to Salta and Spina. >A. Say something>B. Do something
>>29265087>A"Yes"DO NOT say we are related to them.
To those of you who don't see the plan developing, here it is.Salta and Spina just got their asses kicked. Nobody other than Vegeta realizes that Saiyans get stronger as they get beaten more, and we just got Cooler to agree to heal them and Fita. We don't really have any answers for him that he couldn't have figured out on his own. So we stall until the healing process is done, and we have a second shot at getting someone to go super saiyan, or Frank comes back and whups Cooler's ass.
>>29265087>>29265114>>29265121You're right.Captcha: cold ctiesb
>>29265087>A"It's a fair assumption. The fact that you've captured them is the only thing keeping me civil."
>>29265087Yeah, they survived the planets destruction.
>>29265183Too much information.
>>29265087"Nah, there just cat people without the ears."
>>29265183>>29265181>>29265121>>29265114"Yes, that's correct" you tell him.He nods. "You look young, and vaguely similar to them. I'm guessing you're related to at least one of them, aren't you.">A. Say something>B. Do something
>>29265087>A. Say something"Yes, they are." "Are you going to continue your brother's project on wiping us out?"
>>29265244Yeah, they're my mom and her sister
>>29265244>A"Before I answer that, and while we're still being civil, would you mind if I asked what brought you here?"
>>29265298>>29265244I agree to asking him this, but after we answer him.
>>29265351I really don't like it, but it seems I'm outvoted. Also>>29265289Fuck that answer in particular. WAY too much information given far too freely.
>>29265289Too much info. Just say that yes we are related. Nothing further.
>>29265244>AYou're pretty observant. Let me have a try.That purple guy looks like Freeza and Ica, but he's definitely a lot more intelligent. He also didn't treat you like shit just for doing your job, so he must not be a prick. You managed to capture us not through superior force or numbers, but by subterfuge and misdirection.My point is this: what could an intelligent, crafty decent man like Cooler want from a podunk backwater like Earth?
>>29265381>>29265351>>29265298>>29265284>>29265278"Yes, that's also correct" you tell him. "While we're being civil, would you mind if I ask what brought you here?""Well, a squad of my elite soldiers were recently killed" he explains. "The ship their killers used was tracked to this planet. Upon arrival, not only did we detect massive power levels, but also that those power levels seemed to be waiting for us before we landed."He leans towards you. "That brings me to my next question. Were you the ones who killed my men?">A. Say something>B. Do something
>>29265473>A."Those three had nothing to do with your men, that was me."
>>29265468Oh fuck me, I thought the red-skinned alien was talking to us and Cooler had left the room. Don't know why I thought that
>>29265473>AIt was just me.Self defense, they attacked me first.
>>29265473>A"They attacked me. So I killed them: there was a green guy, a brown guy, and a blue... guy?"
>>29265473>A"Yes, and only after they attacked me. The others had nothing do do with it."
>>29265473I, specifically did that. The bunch of us were on a trip to that planet to hunt and fight, they had gotten into a fight with one of us and I decided to end it. I didn't realize what they were at the time.For what its worth, I apologize.
>>29265563You're not very good at this, are you? That's entirely too much information.
>>29265616Fine.>I did that, alone. In self defense.
>>29265473>A. Say something"In my defense, they were picking on my friend."
>>29265563>>29265555>>29265544>>29265526>>29265515>>29265509>>29265508"Those three had nothing to do with it, it was me" you tell him. "And it was in self defense.""Is that so?" he asks. "A possibility, of course. They were a little quick on the trigger at times. Of course, if you were the one who killed them, you could most likely tell me what they looked like.""There was a green guy, a brown guy, and a blue...guy?" you say."Yes" he tells you. "Before your companions are treated, one final question."He points at Fita. "She looks similar to you and the other saiyans, but not quite the same. To which race does she belong?">A. Say something>B. Do something
>>29265715She's a local, a human. They do look a lot like saiyans.
>>29265715>A"Human. No, I don't know why they look so much like saiyans."
>>29265715>AOk we can either say she's a mutant (Recoome's race) or she's a genetic freak of a Saiyan, born with blonde hair and no tail.
>>29265715She looks like a human but...she's obviously a lot more powerful than a human.
>>29265715>A."She's human, native to this planet. They don't usually get this strong though."
>>29265715>A"Human. The ones that can use ki get like that sometimes."
>>29265715>A. Say something"Some sort of mutated human?"
>>29265715>A"Human. Raised away from Earth, which is why she's so strong."
>>29265847>>29265839>>29265791>>29265817>>29265784>>29265758"She's a human, they're native to this planet" you tell him. "They do look a lot like Saiyans, but they don't usually get this strong.""Interesting" he comments as the Doctor returns, taking your moms down from the wall and getting them prepped for treatment. "While the doctor sees to your companions, we can continue our talk."The red alien takes your moms out of the room.>A. Say something>B. Do something
>>29265791>>29265817>>29265847>>29265887Might end with him experimenting on her.>>29265784>>29265847Might end with him blowing up the Earth just to be safe.>>29265924Gives a credible excuse for how she got that way that they can't really investigate.
>>29265927>AI hope you don't mind me saying so, but I've heard of some of your kind before, and they were complete pricks. You're a much better representation of your race.What race *are* you, anyway?
>>29265927>A"I'd prefer to go with them, if it's all the same. No offense, but I don't trust you after you attacked us."
>>29265927"You seem a bit... cooler than what i heard of frieza and your kind.
>>29265972>>29266016>inb4 "his kind" are called Jotun
>>29266035They're Arcrosians I think.
>>29266075Voting >>29266004Mostly because I don't trust OP.
>>29266121>>29266112>>29266004"I'd prefer to go with them, if it's all the same" you tell him. "No offense, but I don't trust you after you attacked us."He smirks, leaning back. "Young man, you seem to not understand the situation. I am not making a social call. You will leave when I give you permission to do so. Do you understand?">A. Say something>B. Do something
>>29266212>AWhat are you here for, then?
>>29266271This is fine.
>>29266271>>29266298>>29266323"What are you here for, then?" you ask."Well, initially I was here to find out who was behind the deaths of my men" he tells you. "But the fact that I've found saiyans, a race my brother supposedly destroyed, changes things.">A. Say something>B. Do something
>>29266212>A"And under what conditions do you 'say so'? You went out of your way to capture us, so you must have a reason to it beyond the three guys I wasted."
>>29266358>A"Your brother?"Let's at least try to get a little info out of Cooler.
>>29266358>A"How so? If you were planning on finishing what Frieza started, you'd have done it already."
>>29266212>A. Say something"Okay mr.strong alien dude."
>>29266358>ADidn't know you had a brother. What changes?
>>29266358>A."Yeah, but you're in the Planet Trade Organization. Judging from how you ordered the doctor around, you're one of their leaders. You must have had a contact or something that told you saiyans were out and about."
>>29266358A. Are you going to finish what he started?
>>29266358>A. Say something"Are you going to finish what your brother started?"
>>29266505>>29266454>>29266437>>29266430>>29266422>>29266402>>29266395"Your brother?" you ask."Yes, Frieza" he says. "I never much cared for him, but I did keep tabs on what he was up to.""Are you going to finish what he started?" you ask.He shrugs indifferently "The saiyans in general are of no concern to me. Your continued existence does not bother me so long as you stay out of my way.""Wait, but you're in the Planet Trade Organization" you point out. "And judging by how you ordered the doctor around and the fact that you're Frieza's brother, you must be one of their leaders. You must have had a contact or something that told you there were saiyan survivors.""For a short time after the destruction of planet Vegeta, I was kept informed about a small group of saiyans that were causing Frieza trouble" he says. "Then they just were gone. I assumed Frieza's men had finally done their jobs. However, when Frieza turned up dead, I became suspicious. And imagine my surprise when I find you and your family here.">A. Say something>B. Do something
>>29266804>A"So, if you're not planning to kill us all, what ARE you planning to do?"
>>29266804>AWhy is it a surprise?
>>29266804>ASo what happens now? We get our treatment and you let us go?
>>29266890>>29266846"Why is it a surprise?" you ask."Because I only had vague suspicions that saiyans were behind the death of my brother" he tells you. "But finding a whole family of your kind with extraordinarily high power levels was unexpected. Still, all of your powers are much lower than that of Frieza, but I notice that your father is not with you. Tell me, is he the one who killed my brother?" he asks you.>A. Say something>B. Do something
>>29267016>AYes, he is why do you ask?
>>29267016...you think we can say, "I don't know" and send out Broly and Cooler to do a fight?
>>29267016>A"I suppose there's no point in lying, so yes. He avenged our people. Now he seems more concerned with protecting us and the planet that took us in.""Live and let live."
>>29267132>>29267078>>29267051"I suppose there's no point in lying" you tell him. "Yes, he is. Why do you ask.""Simple" he tells you. "I have to kill him. My brother was a fool and an embarrassment, but he was still family. And nobody harms my family without repercussion." >A. Say something>B. Do something
>>29267051>>29267078>>29267132...oh we're so screwed
>>29267016>A. Say something"This is the spot where you'd expect me to say 'no' and then you call me out for being a liar, right?"
>>29267181A. Are you going to kill us?
>>29267181>A"One piece of advice: remember those words.""So, can the four of us leave now?"
>>29267286This >>29267255Let's not ask "are you going to kill us" for the THIRD FUCKING TIME.
>>29267181>A. Say something"Right, since you've been reasonable, I'll give you a fair warning." "Do not under any circumstance put a boot on his head. Things end up weird when that happens."
>>29267255>"So, can the four of us leave now?"...SOM, aren't we in space right now?If he is, isn't that an invitation for him to shove us off the airlock?
>>29267322>>29267255>>29267200>>29267354>>29267356"One piece of advice: remember those words" you tell him. "So, can the four of us leave now?""No" he tells you. "Don't worry, I'm not going to kill you. Not yet anyway. But holding you here will help ensure your father will come. Once I have exacted my revenge, I shall release you and the others."With that, he turns and leaves the room, leaving you all alone.>Any questions before we conclude?
>>29267417>Any questions before we conclude?Ask Jeice if he can get us a HETAP.
>>29267417After we beat cooler, will king cold eventually show up?
>>29267417Was there any way that we could have NOT gotten captured by Cooler, or was that rails all the way?
>>29267417this was a terrible planalso did you just forget about Goku or what
>>29267464Most likely, I have no idea why you think that will happen though when Cooler in his final form is much stronger than Frank in Super Saiyan form>>29267475Had you surpressed your power level and not all taken off after those soldiers, you might not have been captured.>>29267482I did not forget about him, don't worry.
>>29267507What would have happened if we blew up the ship rather than let the twins run it?
>>29267507How the hell did Cooler track us after we took precautions?
>>29267507>Frieza: 120 million in canon, 120 million in the quest>Cooler: 470 million in canon, 470 million unless there's some bullshit>SSJ Frank: 350 million>SSJ Frank with kaioken: 700 millionSo we're going to win, unless you create an arbitrary reason to prevent us from winning.
>>29267662Because nothing will stop Som when he's decided a plot point.See: Ica being turned to ash only for Som to revive him.
>>29267662You should know better than to ask.If SOM wants Cooler to track us down, nothing we do will prevent him from tracking us down.
>>29267574You wouldn't have had a vacation>>29267662You spent extra time in PTO territory>>29267688We'll see>>29267716Never said he was ash, just said you couldn't sense his power level
Do you guys think King Cold is the strongest but got rekt by trunks because he was in his first form?
>>29267740Lol I was there. Everyone knew you would try to revive him and made to sure to blast everything like 3 times. You STILL revived him.I'll give you credit on something though. It's admirable how little shame you have with your plot points.
>>29267740Don't even pretend that we're fooled. We know we're riding the rails, it's just a matter of determining what happens when we finally get to the encounters you want us to have.
>>29267746King Cold was in the 2nd form.And yes, if he were allowed to gain full power, Trunks could have lost. But luckily Trunks isn't an idiot.
>>29267798Thanks>>29267834Whatever you say
>>29267855Errr... how do you know he wasn't in his final form? He didn't even try to transform after all.
>>29267869Thanks for the thread SOM, even though I wasn;t here to participate, I still had fun reading.
Next update tomorrow afternoon or evening>>29267987Glad to hear it bro, thanks for the kind words
Let cooler go avenge his brother. It's the saiyan way.I would tell him though that it won't be easy. A super saiyan is not one of their lackeys that can just blow up in a fit of childish anger.
>>29267869You know something?One of these days, after you're done, I'm going to run a "redux" of this quest. Same characters, or possibly ripoffs thereof, but with no railroading, a better group decisionmaking process, and a combat system that allows for degrees of success and failure.Possibly with blackjack and hookers.
>>29267955He thought he had it in the bag.
>>29268061After the sword didn't work, he got scared shitless and still didn't even try to transform.
>>29268025I hope you have experience, otherwise you'll hit rock bottom.
>>29268025I don't even get mad about how bad it gets since I remember Somnius saying he's 16.I remember how much of annoying I was at 16.My only complaint is he's somehow devolving and doubling down when he effs up.
>>29268249>16Whoa waitI mean sure, underage b& but seriously, 16?And this quest has been running how long?
>>292682923-4 months, give or take.
>>29268025Make it a proper DBZ Quest. One with dicerolls and pre-written in character dialogue options for when the reasonable posters can't think of anything smart to say fast enough. One with options to choose a race other than Saiyan.and most importantly, remember that a QM shouldn't fuck over the players, that's what the dice are for.
>>29268361>One with options to choose a race other than Saiyan.So you want the choice to be completely irrelevant?
Any chance we can switch to frank before the whoring happens, and derail it?
>>29268410Frank is chaperoning - he is, after all, married and a father, whereas the rest are all bachelors.Then again, he's probably attracting more women with all his crazy stories.
>>29268361Play D&D 4e. It's good for shit like this. Just refer to D&D races by something else.
>>29268488Probably, but Vegeta is a prince....and also taken.>>29268410Maybe>>29268023Indeed
>>29268203I've DM'd before, and I've been a writefag for years. So we'll see.>>29268249I use to get mad. Now I've started taking notes.>>29268361First to three CAN work, but it needs a little more direction from the QM and some structure for determining success and failure in a systematic and reasonably transparent way. It WILL be a Saiyan MC, and most of a party, but I'm hashing out a system to distribute points and bonuses to skills. So there should be a bit more leeway in character creation.
>>29269757Have fun with that anon
>>29268025I'd really rather you didn't use my OC's, otherwise, go nuts
>>29271502Yeah, I decided it made sense to go ahead and design characters while I was already working out a rules-light system to fit. Though I hope you understand I'll be sticking in a pair of Saiyan sisters as part of the MC's team, since that's probably something I'd have done anyway.
>>29272056Sure, go ahead. I would just appreciate it if you don't make them total copies of my own characters. Your quest sounds interesting and I'll probably check it out when you do it
>>29272056What about instead of a Saiyan quest, we're an alien of the same race as Frieza and as we grow in power we unlock more transformations?
>>29272456It could work, though you have to remember the differences in the natures of transformation. Freeza transforming wasn't him going from one stage of power to the next, it was him removing his limits. The limits are there in the first place because his race's violent impulses are pretty strong. Judging by forms, Freeza needed 3 sets of limiters to get him to a place where he wasn't RIP AND TEAR all the time. Cold needed 2. Cooler needed 1.Think of it this way - though Super Saiyan Goku and Fourth Form Freeza are at the same tier of power, Fourth Form is actually Freeza's base, his natural state.
>>29272697You don't think it was more like Cold was already in form 2 and Cooler already in form 4? I always thought of Cooler's normal form (that you see) was the same as Frieza's form 4, and then he transforms higher. Chilled also had no transformations and he looked like Frieza in his first form. It's not as set in stone as the Saiyan transformations, and it could be handled in a way that the older or more powerful one of their races gets, the more transformations they get.
>>29268025>but with no railroadingSo stick dick in mouth, be a douchebag to your nigs, blow stuff up arbitrarily and fail absolutely at combat all the time because all the rollers are retards? (they manage to stick to bad choices during free form combat, imagine what happens if you add numbers to the mix)I'll check it out.And before you say "yes, exactly, we prefer evulz saiyzanzz" (and the people who wanted this were disappointed indeed, but that's because the majority wanted to go redeemed saiyan route), randomly doing stupid shiti.e. killing your own companions out of nowhereisn't saiyan stuff, killing your companions because they failed to be of use to you is a saiyanly act. Actual evil, not 'randomly bad'...
>>29272379At this point I've got no idea where they're going. One looks a little similar to Spina on paper, but then again I've spent like ten minutes on her backstory.
I really don't understand how the Naruto quest had much better participants than this. Oh wait, that was years ago.
>>29272768>You don't think it was more like Cold was already in form 2 and Cooler already in form 4?It's been canon since Freeza's introduction that the transformations are power limiters.>I always thought of Cooler's normal form (that you see) was the same as Frieza's form 4, and then he transforms higher.Cooler's killing instincts were stronger than Freeza's, but he only needed one transformation to keep himself under control. It says a lot, really.>it could be handled in a way that the older or more powerful one of their races gets, the more transformations they get.Freeza's the youngest of the main bunch, yet has more transformations. No dice.
>>29272922Yeah but we all know that the reason Frieza had more transformations than any of the other members of his race was that he was slated to be the end boss of DBZ so transformation was a tool to drag the fight with him on and increase drama while everybody else was introduced in either a movie or as a throwaway character to show how strong a new character was so of course they'd have less transformations on screen.
>>29272866The main problem is that people think Saiyans across the board like killing, which is untrue. They like fighting, which is markedly different. That's like saying all boxers like to kill people because they enjoy the sport of boxing.Goku didn't like killing, because if you died, he wouldn't get to fight you again. Raditz and Vegeta killed because they saw it as necessary for the mission or to further their goals. Bardock was a fucking professional soldier.What these guys really want is someone who kills for pleasure, like Nappa, or someone who kills just because, like Broly. They're the guys who want to play the Chaotic Neutral Rogue/dick-ass thief/fishmalk we all complain about.
>>29272866I have a three-step plan:>Step 1: Give more detailed, context-sensitive options>Step 2: Have a small, but comprehensive rules system>Step 3: Disregard teamkilling, suicide, randumb, and serious breaks with established character.>>29272915So you're saying that /tg/ is just worse somehow than it was before?
>>29273086>/tg/ is just somehow worse than it was beforeWere you not here when it first started?
>>29273109No. Do I need to have been?
>>29273175In order to understand that /tg/ was much better back then, yeah. It was unheard of to have a quest thread descend into waifuism and shitstorms nearly every thread. I'm sorry you missed out on it.
