Good luck everyone I'm at work but will be lurking
Let's rock fuckersRIP ol green
"I'll make the androids pay," you promise. Trunks nods. "Right. We can't give up yet. We're still alive, so we still have a chance.""How did you all escape, anyway?" you ask."Well, Chaozu used his powers to attack Gero's mind," Trunks explains to you. "Then Piccolo used the Solar Flare and we made a run for it."You'll have to thank Piccolo for that, later."Come on," you tell the boys. "Let's go see what your mom's up to."You find your wife still hard at work flipping through channels. >A. Ask what she's up to>B. Tell her you're glad she made it okay>C. Ask why she has her airship still out of her capsule>D. Something else
>>1619498>B. Tell her you're glad she made it okay>A. Ask what she's up to
>>1619498>>A. Ask what she's up to>>B. Tell her you're glad she made it okay
>>1619498>B. Tell her you're glad she made it okay
Wow, first time im around for this quest and i already have to go>A>B
>>1619498>>A. Ask what she's up to
>>1619526>>1619508>>1619505"What are you up to?" you ask. "Keeping an eye out for any reports on the Androids," she answers. "Nothing so far, other than reports about the destruction on Amenbo island.""I'm glad you made it out of there okay," you say to her as you join in watching the TV."I'm glad you're safe, too," she replies with a smile. "In my time, they made their announcement right after they killed most of Earth's defenders," Trunks explains. "But this time, most of them got away," Bulma says. "So there's no telling where they'll pop up next.">A. Okay, but why is the airship still out?>B. You want to check what Piccolo and Kami are up to>C. You aren't sure if finding them again would do any good>D. Ask Trunks if he remembers any weaknesses for them
>>1619555>>A. Okay, but why is the airship still out?>D. Ask Trunks if he remembers any weaknesses for them>B. You want to check what Piccolo and Kami are up to
>>1619555A C &D
>>1619555>D. Ask Trunks if he remembers any weaknesses for them"Cause the only thing I could think of was either cutting their arms or breaking them in order to get rid of those annoying energy drainers."And then ask our wife if had the materials would she be able to make something to at least temporary shut them off for awhile long enough for us to use our ki to land a decisive hit.
Rolled 4 (1d20)>>1619480I can't wait for SOM to rage quit early due to burnout and laziness! Ready for another extra-short session, lads? :D
>>1619586And I'm talking about their palm orbs, not the androids themselves, but if she had the materials could she make something to at least disrupt or temporarily turn off that area for a bit so we could use our ki without worrying about it getting drained during that time.
>>1619555>>A. Okay, but why is the airship still out?>>D. Ask Trunks if he remembers any weaknesses for them
>>1619567>>1619569>>1619583>>1619586"Okay, but why is the airship still out?" you ask, glancing at the large vehicle sitting a few feet away."It has a phone built-in, in case my dad needs to call me," she answers, continuing to flip through the channels. "He wouldn't leave his stupid pets, even though the Androids could be on their way there.""They went there in my time," Trunks tells her. "But grandpa was away when they arrived, so he was safe."Little Trunks gives his older self and mother a worried look. "Is grandpa going to be okay?""Of course, sweetie," Bulma assures him, putting an arm around his shoulders. "But what about the Androids?" he asks with concern. "Can't everyone beat them?""Not yet," you say, hating to have to tell your son that.Looking toward the older Trunks, you ask if he knows of any weaknesses the Androids have. Trunks shakes his head. "No. We tried raiding Gero's lab once, but that ended in failure and a lot of deaths. The Red Ribbon Army was guarding it well.">A. But, the Red Ribbon Army won't be there this time>B. Ask if he knows where the lab is>C. You'll check it out>D. Okay then, you won't bother>E. Something else
>>1619636>A. But, the Red Ribbon Army won't be there this time>B. Ask if he knows where the lab is>E. They were absorbing our energy through their hands during the fight. Any ideas as to how and maybe a way to counter it? (To Bulma and Future Trunks.)
>>1619643>>1619675"But the Red Ribbon Army won't be there this time," you point it. "I can check the lab for anything useful.""Fine, but I'm coming with you," Trunks says, standing up. "I know where it is, so I can lead you there.""Sounds like a plan," you tell him, standing up as well. "Any chance you know how to deal with the Android's energy absorption?""Don't let them grab you or suck up your attacks," Trunks answers. >A. Smartass>B. Alright, time to go>C. You need to talk to Kami>D. You need to talk to someone else (specify)>E. You want to bring someone else or some other people (specify)>F. Something else
>>1619691>>A. Smartass>C. You need to talk to Kami>E. You want to bring someone else or some other people (specify) Piccolo
>>1619691>A. Smartass>E. You want to bring someone else or some other people (specify)Piccolo
>>1619691>smartass>F. All this pride I feel>bring piccolo
>>1619699>>1619712"Smartass," you remark, which Trunks answers with a smile. "Before we go, I want to get somebody else to join us.""Alright, another person might help if things get dicey," Trunks admits. "Who did you have in mind?"You don't even have to think about it. "Piccolo.""Piccolo?" Trunks replies, seeming a bit confused. "Isn't he talking with Kami?""That works out," you tell your son, turning and starting toward the Lookout entrance. "Because I want to talk to Kami, too."Leaving the others behind for the moment, you step inside, making your way to Kami's throne-room. The door is closed, but you let yourself in, anyway, finding both Kami and Piccolo standing around a floating orb with images of the world below appearing on it. Specifically, it seems to be focused on a rocky area that reminds you a bit of Namek.The two Namekians look toward you as the image fades, with Kami looking almost relieved, but Piccolo seeming furious. "Didn't Popo tell you not to interrupt?" he growls as you approach.>A. This is important>B. Ignore him, you want to talk to Kami>C. Tell Piccolo what you're planning and ask for his help>D. Say nothing>E. Something else
>>1619740>A. This is important.>>C. Tell Piccolo what you're planning and ask for his help.>E. We might run into them again so if there's any edge you can give yourself do it.
>>1619740>A. This is important>talk to kami and piccolo
>>1619754>>1619757"This is important," you assure him. "We're heading for Gero's lab to try and find information to help us beat the Androids. I was hoping you would help."Kami smiles, causing Piccolo to throw a furious look his way. "That sounds like a wonderful idea. Piccolo, if you're so concerned about these Androids, why not go with Tofoo and look for a way to defeat them?"Piccolo scowls, balling up his hands into fists. Kami gives his other half a little smirk. "Go on, now. Perhaps we can wrap this up more easily than you thought. In the meantime, I'll keep an eye on things from up here. Perhaps you'll prove right, and my fears will have been nothing but nonsense."Piccolo looks away from Kami, still looking angry, but not bothering to say another word to him."Tofoo, I wish both you and your son luck," the guardian tells you. "And you, of course, Piccolo.""Spare me your well-wishes, old man," Piccolo tells him harshly. "Just try not to let your heart give out while I'm gone."With that, the Demon King storms out of the room, leaving you and Kami alone as the door slams behind him. If there's anything you wish to say to the guardian, now might be the time.>A. Ask what they were talking about>B. Ask what Piccolo was planning>C. Ask what he's afraid of>D. Don't ask anything, just say goodbye and leave>E. Something else
>>1619791>>A. Ask what they were talking about>B. Ask what Piccolo was planning
>>1619791>A. Ask what they were talking about"Seem like something important if Piccolo was the one that wanted to talk to you.">C. Ask what he's afraid of
>>1619791>A. Ask what they were talking about"Please tell me he wants to learn Kumaken, that would make my day.".>C. Ask what he's afraid of
>>1619797>>1619806>>1619811"What were you two talking about?" you ask once Piccolo has left (though with his hearing, Piccolo could still be listening in for all you know). "It must have been pretty important if Piccolo was the one who wanted to talk."Kami gives an amused chuckle. "Yes, it takes quite a bit to make Piccolo willingly come to speak with me. These Androids frighten him far more than he wishes to admit to anyone, even himself."It takes you a moment to realize that Kami was attempting a joke there."And what was it that you were afraid of?" you ask the guardian.Kami's smile vanishes. "You may recall that I told you of a feeling of dread that I have been experiencing for some time. For the past four years, I have sensed something festering on the planet below, a threat that could mean doom for us all. When your son came with his warning about the Androids, I believed that he spoke of what I had been sensing.">A. But he wasn't>B. So, if it wasn't the Androids, what was he sensing?>C. What was Piccolo's plan for dealing with the Androids?>D. Something else
>>1619832>B. So, if it wasn't the Androids, what was he sensing?>D. Something elseYo, you know that room I trained in when I was younger, that compresses time. Do we still have that?
>>1619832>>A. But he wasn't
>>1619832>B, ask him to warn the others
>>1619832>B. So, if it wasn't the Androids, what was he sensing?>D. Something else"Oh You (In the style of "Oh God"), how many things what this planet destroyed or conquered, or us or life here dead? This getting ridiculous, they're coming all at once now!".
>>1619842>things what*things wantMy apologies.
>>1619837>>1619839>>1619842"If it wasn't the Androids, what were you sensing?" you ask, finding worry creeping into your voice."I'm not sure," Kami admits, sighing as he stares at the now-blank orb. "In fact, I'm not even certain that the Androids weren't what I was sensing. Piccolo believes that my old age is simply beginning to take its toll on my senses. Perhaps he is correct, but every fiber of my being is telling me that something even more dangerous than the Androids will soon make itself known.">A. Then what can you do?>B. In that case, maybe Piccolo should stay behind. You can't risk losing the Dragonballs>C. Ask what Piccolo was planning>D. Wish him well and depart>E. Suggest asking the Grand Kai for help again>F. Something else
>>1619884Shiiiiit.Is that room that compresses time still available?
>>1619884>C. Ask what Piccolo was planning>F. Something elseAsk King Kai why everyone wants to ruin our planet, and why they just keep coming one after another.
>>1619914>>1619896"King Kai!" you shout up into the sky. "Why does everyone want to ruin Earth?! Why do they just keep coming one after another?!""Hey, don't look at me!" you hear the Kai's voice reply. "I just keep watch around here, I have no control over what the mortals do. Getting involved in mortal affairs is forbidden, except in the most extreme cases. If I had to guess, though, I'd say it's because you and Goku do nothing but attract trouble."Well, that was about as helpful as you'd expected. You turn your attention back to Kami."What was Piccolo planning?" you ask, wondering just what somebody like the former Demon King would do when they find themselves desperate. "Piccolo suggested something I never thought a possibility," Kami explains, turning away from you. "He proposed that the two of us become one, as we were so long ago.">A. He's kidding, right?>B. But he said no, right?>C. How powerful would that make the two of them?>D. That seems like a good plan>E. But what about the Dragonballs?>F. Something else
>>1619884>>E. Suggest asking the Grand Kai for help again
>>1619945>A. He's kidding, right?>B. But he said no, right?>E. But what about the Dragonballs?>F. Mention the Ripe Ebonics Rhyme Shamer already
>>1619945>>E. But what about the Dragonballs?>C. How powerful would that make the two of them?
>>1619945>B. But he said no, right?>C. How powerful would that make the two of them?>E. But what about the Dragonballs?>F. Something else"Maaaaaaaaaybe we should hold off on that until Piccolo gets a bit... Nicer? Is that word we should use? Provided we'd ever need it."
We should totally become the Official Guardian of the Earth after the Cell Saga ends. Dende can be our assistant who provides the Dragon Balls, as well as boost our waker powers.We could live both at home and at the Lookout. The Lookout could be our own private base, guys! Our own private base!
>>1619992>our waker powers.Watcher powers, I mean our watcher powers.
>>1619992A We don't know DendeB You are going to be hard pressed to convince enough people to become guardian we just never wanted the job
>>1619967I don't really see that happening unless he fuses with kami and becomes a brand new namekian. In canon it was his friendship with gohan that helped mellow him down so much, and that took a year of deep bonding, can't force that
>>1620004>A We don't know DendeSom knows Dende, doesn't King Kai get him to come in canon anyway?>B You are going to be hard pressed to convince enough people to become guardian we just never wanted the jobWe don't have to live at the lookout, and it would basically like going to work everyday. We are already The Guardian of Earth in everything but title, along with Goku.
>>1619967>>1619964>>1619953"But, you said no, right?" you ask."I told Piccolo that we should take some time to understand just what we're dealing with before making such a monumental decision," the old man answers. "While returning to our original form would increase our power, there are several side-effects and uncertainties that make such a course of action only suitable if the situation is truly grim. I'm uncertain if we have yet reached that point."Piccolo getting even stronger does make you a bit nervous, but with Kami in there influencing him, perhaps he won't be such a bad guy. You hope not, anyway."So, how powerful would the two of you become?" you question."It's difficult to say for certain, but I believe that had we fused at the time Piccolo was on Namek, we could have defeated Freeza. Considering Piccolo's current strength, and his merging with the Namekian Nail, there's no telling just how mighty we would become.""What would happen to the Dragonballs if you fused?" you ask."The being known as Kami would cease to truly exist," he answers. "The balls would no longer function, and my time as Guardian would come to an end.">A. Is he sure that Piccolo wouldn't use his new power to conquer the planet?>B. If he's implying that he'd want you to become Guardian in his absence, you still aren't interested>C. The situation is bad enough that he's considering it?>D. You think he should do it>E. You don't think he should do it>F. Something else>G. Depart
>>1620027>C. The situation is bad enough that he's considering it?>E. You don't think he should do itAtleast, not until we know for sure what we're dealing with.>F. Something else-and besides, Popo and us would miss him.
>>1620027>C. The situation is bad enough that he's considering it?>E. You don't think he should do it>F. Something elseYo, you still got that room that compresses time?
>>1620027>>C. The situation is bad enough that he's considering it?>Who would replace replace you? I'm obviously out of the running but what are the actual requirements?
>>1620023This is different from canon. There wasn't that rescue from his village or anything like that. He would barely know you guys
>>1620045Can... Can we learn how to make the Dragon Balls?
>>1620037This I guess
>>1620047The Namekians did, so it is possible, but it would take a long time for a human to figure it out, as your race has never tried.
Just wanted to point out in super the guardian gets God ki not sure if SOM is going with that but it is in super.
>>1620060I was never really against Tofoo becoming Guardian, but if everyone else doesn't want it, then everyone else doesn't want it.
>>1620060Becoming Guardian would give you a small trace of god ki, but I can tell you right now that it won't let you obtain a full-on God form just like that
>>1620069Yet, like our Ki training helping with Kaioken and Kumaken, it may or may not make it a bit easier for us if we ever get to Super / Battle of the Gods later on.
>>1620072That is a fair assumption
>>1620066I think we just turned down the job because goku did when kami is gone I think it would be good for Tofoo to take up the mantle>>1620069Makes sense but i still think it will be funny because a while back one anon said we would have god ki in the buu saga
>>1620066Its more around that Kami was basically saying that we have to live on the Lookout after the fact we barely left it for a day after spending three years there. Not to mention it sounded like we couldn't go after Bulma IC since of said information Kami gave us.
Som kami would've probably explained the limitations and such at some point to us so could you give us a crash course on what being guardian entails
>>1620083-but Kami leaves the Lookout, and has done so numerous times throughout this quest.
>>1620037>>1620038>>1620039>>1620054"The situation's bad enough where you're considering it?" you ask.Kami doesn't answer, which really tells you all you need to know. Of course he's considering it, that's why he was explaining the pros and cons to you."I don't think you should do it," you voice your opinion. "Not without knowing what we're dealing with."Kami still says nothing."Besides..." you trail off for a moment. "Popo would miss you. And, so would I."Now, Kami turns, offering you a smile. "And I would miss you, my friend. But you know as well as I that sacrifices must be made to protect our homeworld. How many times have you risked everything to protect the Earth? And what kind of Guardian would I be if I refused to do the same?">A. You understand>B. You wanted to talk to him about his offer to make you Guardian>C. You just hope it won't come to that>D. Don't say anything more on the subject, just say goodbye and leave>E. Something else
>>1620107>C. You just hope it won't come to that>E. Something else
>>1620107>A>Bafter conversing about that>C
>>1620107>>C. You just hope it won't come to that
>>1620107>C. You just hope it won't come to that>B. You wanted to talk to him about his offer to make you Guardian>E. Something elseIf he asks why we are coming around to it possibly it is because when he's gone, the Earth WILL need a new one, and it would probably be you or Goku. -and not to say anything about Goku, but Goku is Goku.
>>1620111You have to write in something for something else
>>1620119>>1620113>>1620128"I just hope it doesn't come to that," you tell him. "But, in case it does, I want to talk about your offer to make me Guardian."This seems to truly shock Kami, who actually drops his staff and staggers a few steps back in disbelief. "Y-you're serious? After all this time, you want the job?!""I said I wanted to talk about it," you point out. "If you fuse with Piccolo, the world is going to need a new Guardian. Odds are it would be me or Goku, and, well, Goku is...Goku."Kami nods, still seeming to be in shock. "W-well then, I think we have a lot to talk about.">>End UpdatesThat's all for tonight, folks, I hope you had a good timeFollow me @qmdralo to see when I'm runningAs always, I will stick around for a while
>>1620149Well thanks for running tonight som hopefully we can have a longer thread soon
If Tofoo becomes Guardian of Earth, Bear School's requirements are going to be ridiculous for entry. You have to be able to climb Korin's Tower, beat Korin's Challenge, and know how to fly. -and then we become like Kami was to use and Goku.
>>1620155Sorry about that. Between house-sitting, a new job, and some other problems, I've lacked a lot of time/willpower
>>1620157Going to korin and getting the water sure but I don't think goku actually knew how to fly when he got there.
>>1620149Thanks for running, hope the new job ain't killing you. Did that horrible train show die in Trunks future?
>>1620157Also we should only have 3 pupils at a time, as the limit. Like Roshi had Goku, Krillin, and us.
>>1620162True>>1620163Nope, it's still running
>>1620160Any guesses as to when the next session will be?>>1620164>Roshi>Training usWhatever you say anon
>>1620172Planning on Wednesday night
>>1620162That just means our pupils have to be better than Goku was in canon. That or we send Nimbuses for them after they have finished Korin's Challenge, if they accept our request to see them, provided we think they are worthy to begin with.Inb4 Trunks, Kori, and Krillian's Daughter who's name I forgot are our students. We should make them climb Korin Tower and try to beat Korin's Challenge. The latter is probably harder for them than one would think.>>1620172I didn't say he trained us. He accepted to train us, but we had other plans.
Just got out of work, I really don't want to be guardian, I don't want that responsibility. I rather just stay at capsule corp and train, hang out with family and friends and be a general nuisance to whoever threatens earth. Then maybe start the bear school but I'd save that for post cell.
>>1620178Let's see what he says about being Guardian before we make a judgement either way because like that anon said we are guardian in all but title and powers already.>>1620175Konnatsu and that is a good idea once trunks gets a little older.
>>1620175Wait to add to that, they have to past the Karinga Tribe tests I'm sure they have, and have to be as strong as Upa's father.So to meet the Guardian of Earth Tofoo and join Bear School they have to:Earn the trust and respect of the Karinga Tribe.Climb Korin's Tower, and take the test from Korin.Either fly up to the Tower, or we send Nimbuses to get them.Pass Popo's tests which is the entry exam.-and finally they can train under us, if we accept them.
>>1620187what would our training involve?
>>1620190Taking a hit like a champ, mental focus, and ki control.
>>1620190>>1620193Learning to job super hard as well
>>1620195This is imporant as well, the curse of having all this training and being build like mountain with the mental disipline and ki control of a Buddha is shit rolls for life.
>>1620190Pendulum room, Gravity room (Bring one to the lookout), Weight Training, Ki Control
>>1620186This is like the third time it's been brought up I've been against it the previous two times and I'm still against it. I also want to put another baby in Bulma
>>1620204Listen this could give us Instant Transmission and a Small amount of god ki for free as far as we know there are no real drawbacks (This is SOM though so...) I want more kids as well I was the one pushing it really hard after cooler but the other anons decided not to I wouldn't expect it to happen for quite a bit now.
>>1620214They used that argument and the "magic" (I assume the clothes beam) one as reasons to be guardian and those will not sway me. If Tofoo is to get god ki I'd want it to be through his own merits not because his responsibility granted him a small divine spark. As far as IT goes I don't think we'll ever get it and there are so many technique ideas already as you can see from that one helpful anon that copies and pastes that list we have. Then there is then dragon balls. I'd want to get a namekian since they already know how to make it, unfortunately we never met and saved dende but I would still ask them for help and see if any of them would be willing to serve as our guardian and it would give big green someone else to hang with besides Lapis.
>>1620204>>1620214Also becoming gaurdian means we can change how the HBTC works and we get an even more extended life so we can train in it to our hearts content meaning we can close any power gap very quickly provided SOM allows for that
>>1620214Im for becoming the guardian if it becomes a natural progression to do so, in the event that kami dies or cant handle it anymore, but not to get some free Ki or techniques.
>>1620255Yeah totally I'm just trying to get him to see It will help us to do so
>>1620204You and Bulma talked about that, she wants to wait until after this Android business has passed
>>1620860Personally I'm all for it, not for the powers though. I just feel like it's almost the next step for Tofoo, if that makes any sense. It is true that we more or less act as Earth's guardian, for most world ending threats, there's goku but he's...goku. I almost see it as a path of ascension, going from wild kid to young martial artist that develops his own school of martial arts to world champion to becoming god and training ourselves even further. We already spend all day training anyway, might as well do it on the tower, as long as we still attend to our family I don't see an issue. It would basically just be Tofoo getting a job and sometimes being a way for a couple of days if required, like your dad going on a business trip. It'd be cool, just my out of game opinion though.
"If you became the Guardian in my place, it would certainly help put my mind at ease," Kami tells you as he walks around the orb. "Though, I get the feeling you would rather not have to assume such a mantel. Even so, if it comes to that, I want your mind to be as at ease as possible. So, if you have any questions, I would be willing to answer them.">A. Is becoming Guardian just as simple as gaining a title, or is there more than that?>B. What would your duties be?>C. What rules are there?>D. Would the Dragonballs bind to you?>E. Something else
>>1621742>A. Is becoming Guardian just as simple as gaining a title, or is there more than that?>B. What would your duties be?>C. What rules are there?>D. Would the Dragonballs bind to you?I'm sorry SOM but i would love to know the answers to all these questions.
>>1621742>D. Would the Dragonballs bind to you?"Can they be binded to something else or would that affect the power of Shenron's ability to grant wishes?">B. What would your duties be?>C. What rules are there?>A. Is becoming Guardian just as simple as gaining a title, or is there more than that?
>>1621742All of the above
>>1621760>>1621765"Is becoming a Guardian as simply as changing a title, or is there more to it than that?" you question."There's a bit more to it," Kami answers. "I would have to transfer my Guardian power to you, though that is a relatively simple matter. Your lack of training is my only concern, though I am confident that you will learn what is necessary, given time.""Well, what would my rules and duties be?" you ask. "You'd observe the planet, identify threats, and deal with them," Kami answers. "Whether it be evils such as Piccolo, natural disasters, diseases, or the like, you would do everything in your power to protect life on this world from destruction. As for rules, you would simply need to make sure you are keeping your eyes on the world, and that you put the protection of life on this planet above all else."He stops there, and you know what he means. If it comes to saving the world or your family, the world has to come first."Would the Dragonballs bind to me?" you ask, changing the subject. "Would that effect Shenron's abilities?""Truthfully, I do not know," Kami answers. "Perhaps they would bind to you as the new Guardian, or perhaps they would vanish with me.">A. If he fuses with Piccolo, you will become Guardian>B. You will think on this, while he thinks on what to do with Piccolo>C. You are not interested>D. Something else
>>1621813>B We kept everyone waiting long enough and we don't want this to be a "I'll kill you" situation again
>>1621813>B. You will think on this, while he thinks on what to do with Piccolo>D. We still might be able to find another replacement. one of the namekians we saved during that whole thing with freeza.
>>1621813>A. If he fuses with Piccolo, you will become GuardianPiccolo and kami fusing might just be what we need to win, and tofoo is really the only one that can step up and act as guardian properly. What if we wished for shenron to have the dragon balls be connected to Tofoo's life force? Namekians proved you don't need to be a god like kami to make dragon balls, and as long as both parties are willing it would be in the dragon's power...
>>1621813>B. You will think on this, while he thinks on what to do with Piccolo"Well hopefully things won't turn drastic enough that you might have to fuse with Piccolo if it turns out there is something worse out there hiding behind the android threat."
>>1621832This is a good idea actually but further maybe we could ask for the ability and knowledge of how to make dragon balls.
>>1621839That way we could get the whole two wishes thing
>>1621823>>1621830>>1621835"Well, hopefully things won't become bad enough that you'll have to join with Piccolo, but I will think on this while you think of what to do as far as Piccolo," you tell your former teacher."That sounds sensible," the Guardian tells you. "Now, I believe I have delayed you long enough. Piccolo may have calmed a bit over the years, but he is hardly what I would call patient. I assume he is becoming frustrated waiting for you.">A. Alright then, you'll see him later>B. But wait, you have one more question>C. Piccolo? Calm?>D. Something else
>>1621862>>A. Alright then, you'll see him later
>>1621862>A. Alright then, you'll see him laterAsk Krillin if there are any beans left
>>1621876Yeah this and invite everyone to come with us as well
>>1621832Good idea, wishing for Shenron to be linked to Tofoo instead of Kami
>>1621892Shit, good idea. Problem is, the Dragonballs were used recently
>>1621892I guess that will be a tradition we have to pass down from now on whenever a new guardian comes about.
>>1621897When was that I forget?
>>1621813>If it comes to saving the world or your family, the world has to come first.Thankfully our family's survival is imperative to the world's survival.

>>1621919Have Bulma make a space ship for us to take to an asteroid in the asteroid belt and use the Black Star Balls to wish for it while ON the asteroid.
>>1621926I expect the B*Bs will blow up earth anyway for shiggles.They're kind of dick balls.
>>1621926I don't think it works that way...
>>1621919Fug, guess Tien is going to be getting otherworld gains for awhile.
>>1621928>>1621931They blow up the celestial body they are used on. Som has to literally ass pull them blowing the Earth up if used elsewhere.
>>1621897Could...could we ask the namekians to use their dragon balls and have porunga switch shenron from kami to tofoo. Goku knows instant transmission and the namekians would be willing to help considering how important this is. Of course that means waiting for goku to wake up, which going by canon means a few hours.
>>1621936That could work
Does Goku even know where new namek is?
>>1621936We'll do that during COOLER'S REVENGE, YA BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOIS. Oh... Wait...
>>1621874>>1621872>>1621870"Alright, then," you tell him. "I'll see you later."Kami nods. "Farewell, my friend. I wish you the best of luck."You leave the Guardian to consider his own path as you step out of the throne room, finding that Piccolo isn't there. Instead, you find the Namekian outside, speaking to Trunks and Lapis, seeming to have a fairly amicable conversation with the two.As you approach, however, the Namekian fixes you with a glare."Took you long enough," he remarks. "Are you ready?">A. Yes>B. Is Lapis coming?>C. Ask what they were talking about>D. Don't answer, just take off and tell Trunks to lead the way>E. Something else
>>1621935>Som has to literally ass pull them blowing the Earth up if used elsewhere.Of course, and there's no way Som would ever do something like that
>>1621939Could we have wished away the heart disease?
>>1621942We didn't actually chuck Cooler into the sun, we sort of bisected him here on Earth.Do we even have anyone in space for the Big Gete Star to buckle onto?Unless it can make default machines without a host, i'd say problem resolved before it began.
>>1621942He's been on namek before so he would be able to find the namekians' life force again. Even if he couldn't king kai could help him find and teleport there. Of course king kai could just ask the mm on our behalf so we could actually do it without goku.
>>1621955"Gather the dragonballs, wish to be put in mutual contact with earth, wish for Shenron to be linked to Tofoo instead of Kami, and wish for ... A plasma TV"
>>1621944A and B.>>1621945Som enjoys it when we actually think and use our heads and come up with creative solutions to our problems. I am literally doing the wisest, more intelligent decisions based upon Tofoos current knowledge plus the knowledge he would gain upon learning the dragon balls have been used.Asking the New Namek Namekians is the over all best decision, however. Although Tofoo is not currently sure of the location or New Namek and how to contact them. We could ask King Kai, of course. -but I'm look at how to "properly" use the Black Stars if we ever had to.
>>1621962Or we could wish Tien back like a good friend.
>>1621965black star Dragon Balls will cause the host planet to blow up in a yearHost planet is pretty vague maybe the planet piccolo is on?
>>1621965B-but those were all my ideas...
>>1621966Wish him to be revived 3 days from the day we make the wish, with a beard.
>>1621975-and I agree with your ideas.
>>1621966Let's be a good friend after we figure out how to save the world and keep the dragon balls from going inert, no real point in bringing him back if we're all just going to go with him back to the afterlife. Having working dragon balls would be a good safety net, plus I'm pretty sure they reset when they switch owners so we could just wish him back anyway. Plus we could make it so that they don't disperse when used, something kami did on purpose. Would definitely be a good idea to have them on hand on the tower since I don't believe Gero can actually get here without kami's permission.
>>1621994If we use the namek balls transfering ownership would be one wish we could bring back tien so he can at least be around and we need to figure out a third wish
>>1622006>we need to figure out a third wishWe ask if Shiki can kill servants.
>>1621951>>1621965"Yes," you answer. "Is Lapis coming?""No, this little field trip sounds boring if you ask me," the man answers. "You three have fun searching through the old man's things, I'll be staying right here.""The less people we bring, the less chance we'll be noticed," Piccolo points out. "The Androids were able to defeat us last time, so there's no reason they should be heading back to their lab, but if they are, I would prefer they not find us.""Agreed," Trunks chimes in. "Alright, I'll lead the way."He takes to the air, with you and Piccolo close behind. The three of you leave the Lookout, and the Land of Korin behind, heading North toward the edge of the continent. "Gero's lab is in the mountains near North City," Trunks tells the two of you as you fly. "With any luck, we can find information that will help us stop him and Nineteen once and for all.">A. That mountain range is large, does he know specifically where it is?>B. Ask what happened when they tried to reach the lab in his time>C. Ask Piccolo what he thinks of these enemies>D. Don't say anything>E. Something else

Ask Piccolo what he thinks of these enemies"Their only threat is the fact that they made it harder for us to use our ki otherwise the fight would have been over already."
>>1622036>>1622051"That mountain range is large," you point out to your son. "Do you know specifically where the lab is?""Yeah, like I said, we tried raiding it in my time," he replies. "I can take you right to it, and this time there shouldn't be an army waiting for us.""An army we can handle," Piccolo tells him. "It's the Androids that are a threat.""So, what happened last time you tried this?" you ask. "Back when Goku and I raided the old Red Ribbon HQ, they had a bunch of defenses that activated when we got close.""There were sentries and guard towers in my time, but that was after the army had been reestablished for a while," Trunks tells you. "So, we had to fight Red Ribbon soldiers and hunters for a while. But Piccolo's right, the threat now is the Androids.""What do you think of the Androids, anyway?" you ask, glancing toward the Namekian.Piccolo scowls. "I think they're more powerful than I'd imagined, and that their damn energy siphoning makes dealing with them frustratingly difficult.""Yeah, if they hadn't made it so hard for us to use our energy, this fight would already be over," you lament."I wouldn't be so sure," Piccolo tells you. "I saw Gero take a few energy attacks from you just fine.">A. Good point>B. Yeah, but you couldn't use your attacks to their fullest>C. Ask Trunks what Red Ribbon "hunters" are>D. Don't say anything else, just continue to the lab>E. Something else
>>1622093>>A. Good point>C. Ask Trunks what Red Ribbon "hunters" are
Rolled 7 (1d100)>>1622093I am not sure what to do so I will roll a dice.
>>1622093>B. Yeah, but you couldn't use your attacks to their fullest>C. Ask Trunks what Red Ribbon "hunters" are
>>1622093>>B. Yeah, but you couldn't use your attacks to their fullest>>C. Ask Trunks what Red Ribbon "hunters" are
>>1622109We are on the same wavelength today anon
>>1622109>>1622110"Yeah, but I couldn't use my attacks to their fullest," you reply. "You could have, you just didn't," Piccolo responds.Not wanting this to grow into a full-on fight, you change the subject by asking Trunks what Red Ribbon hunters are. "Specially modified members of the Red Ribbon Army," your son explains. "Doctor Gero gave them cybernetic enhancements to increase their strength, speed, and stamina. They essentially became powerful cyborgs that took out resistance groups too powerful for the Army's main forces, strong martial artists that were resisting Gero's rule, and other difficult targets. They came after Kori, Konattsu, and myself on a few occasions, but we were able to handle them just fine."The temperature has decreased considerably, and as the three of you fly through the mountain range, Trunks looks around, searching for the lab."Down there," your son tells you, pointing at what looks to be a cave carved into the rock many feet above ground.The three of you swoop down, landing and walking through the cave. The outside light allows you to see a massive set of blue doors ahead of you, and you know that your son has done as he said he would.Piccolo stops, frowning deeply as he stares at the doors.>A. Ask what's wrong>B. Go break down the doors>C. Follow Trunks>D. Something else
>>1622178>D. Something elseTrunks hold up a second.>>A. Ask what's wrong
>>1622183This.Getting a head start on feeding the dice.
I have an idea for dealing with the energy draining, how about we try to block our own ki like Shen did with us? Like a tourniquet to prevent bloodloss. The question is if we have enough ki control to do that and if we can do it quick enough to minimize the loss and undoing the block to keep fighting.
>>1622183>>1622185>>1622201"Trunks, hold up a second," you tell your son as you turn around to look at Piccolo. Piccolo is twitching, and a bead of sweat is moving down his face. His frown has transformed into a full-on scowl, and in his eyes you see fear."What's wrong?" you ask."The Androids are here," the Namekian answers. "Nineteen and Twenty.""What?" Trunks asks in shock, looking back toward the doors. "But, it gets worse," Piccolo continues. "Gero's saying that he plans to activate another Android."Your blood runs cold. Piccolo's eyes go wide. "Android Sixteen.">A. He's kidding, right?>B. Alright, the three of you need to leave right now>C. You need to stop them from activating Sixteen>D. Something else
>>1622212Lets just hope we don't have to try we don't have mutiaito to fix us if we fuck it up somehow
>>1622224>>D. Something elseLets bring the whole thing down.
>>1622224>C. You need to stop them from activating Sixteen
>>1622224C. You need to stop them from activating Sixteen
>>1622224We want to power down the whole system, or it will be our butts!
>>1622224>cNOW. BUM RUSH THEM WITH EVERY PUNCH WE HAVE.
>>1622224>suplex the mountainBut really...>blow up mountain from the bottom
Should we try using the kikoho to destroy the androids and the lab with it? There is o way they could absorb it and we are close enough to 19 and 20 to kill them with it
>>1622238>>1622240"We need to stop them from activating Sixteen," you tell the others, knowing that you're as good as dead if an Android that powerful is activated."Right!" Trunks shouts, thrusting his hands toward the doors and unleashing a wave of energy. In an instant, the massive metal obstacle has been blown inward, the smoldering remains collapsing to the ground just inside of the lab and kicking up dust that mostly obscures the area from your vision.Still, you can see the piercing blue-eyes of the Androids peering at you through the dust, and as the clouds begin to clear, you see smiles on both of their faces. Though their clothes are still dirty and burnt in some places, and though there are a few marks on their bodies, they seem largely unharmed. Twenty even has his hat back on.The lab is smaller than you expected, and mostly made up of a blue-tile floor with two large pods of some kind covering most of it. They look almost like sarcophagi, and you suppose that's fitting, as they might have been where the Androids slept before being "given life".One is already open, but another lies closed. If you were a betting man, you would say that the closed pod belongs to Android Sixteen himself. It's connected to various pieces of machinery, though you aren't sure what that machinery does."What a pleasant surprise," Gero remarks as the three of you survey the lab with a mixture of anger and fear. "Number Twenty, I will eliminate the intruders," Nineteen declares, beginning to step forward. "There's no need for that, Nineteen," Gero tells him. "Stand down. This will make a perfect test of Sixteen's abilities."Nineteen frowns, but obeys his master's command.>A. He's activating Sixteen already? But that was supposed to happen years from now>B. Ask Gero if he's scared of a rematch>C. Ask why he's bothering to activate Sixteen; he and Nineteen won the last battle>D. Throw the most powerful blast you have toward Sixteen>E. Something else
>>1622308>>E. Something elseSolar flare then kienzan into 16's pod.
>>1622308>B and C, motion behind your back for Piccolo or Trunks to blow up the whole damn mountain, or if neither is behind us just do it ourselves
>>1622308>E. Two of us hold the androids,one destroys sixteen
>>1622317He probably has different lens on his eyes now, transition ones.
>>1622324Since Trunks is the weakest of the 3 he should be the one who destroys 16 while Tofoo and Piccolo fight 19 and 20
>>1622308>Quick tell him he's pretty! That should stall him long enough to give him a tofoo special green handy(ki blade)!
>>1622308>>B and C, motion behind your back for Piccolo or Trunks to blow up the whole damn mountain, or if neither is behind us just do it ourselves
Guys I've got a bad feeling about this.

>>1622356Going for E
>>1622308>E. Something elseUse the environment against them by Charging at Nineteen and then jumping back upwards at the last second and bounce off the nearby walls to kick him towards Gero, since the entire place is crowded and harder for them to dodge.

Nineteen moves to intercept, but you kick the machine while it's distracted, sending it crashing through the machinery connected to the pod. Your son gathers his energy, and as Twenty moves to stop him, Piccolo rushes in and attacks the old man. Trunks lets out a yell, and a brilliant flash of light fills the lab.>End UpdatesThat's all for tonight, folks, hope you all had funI know my schedule has been pretty bad this week, and I'm sorry. A lot has been going on lately, but hopefully things will be a bit more normal next week.As always, I'll be sticking around
>>1622456So does>hopefully things will be a bit more normal next week.mean next thread next week or?
>>1622495I'm planning to run on Friday, but with the way things have been going this week, I can't say for certain
>>1622456Thanks for running, guessing more of Trunks future is going to be explained in detail in the paste bins?
>>1622502Yeah, more of those will come out.
>>1622498Thanks for running somWhat does piccolo think of our switch the dragon balls over to tofoo/have tofoo become guardian? (You know he heard)What does/would king kai think?(now you know he definitely heard)What does som think of it?
>>1622520He "doesn't care""Yeah, that makes sense"Could lead to some interesting things down the line, could be fun, would be an interesting development for Tofoo
>>1622456Thanks for running Som. What are the chances the plan isn't gonna... blow up in our faces?
>>1622532Not great, but possible
>>1622530Glad I could tittilate your interest, so Friday manOh, what would trunks think if he found out his dad turned down godhood/becoming God and his reaction if he knew Tofoo might take it(Sorry I'm just really into becoming guardian now)
>>1622558He's heard stories from his mom alreadyHe'd want an explanation, but if you tell him what you're thinking, he would probably understand
>>1622561Damn this kid is chill, see you Friday Som!
>>1622573>>1622558Wait, you're talking about Future Trunks, right?
>>1622599No, but since you brought it up, how do they both feel about their dad almost being god/might become god?
>>1622599>>1622614More importantly, how does Bulma feel about it? If we become god can we knock her up with our god seed? Surely birth control can't protect from that kind of potency...
>>1622614Future Trunks knows all about it, would understand your change of heart if you explained it to him.Present Trunks only heard the story recently, and doesn't entirely get it. But, so long as you were still around as often as you could be, and you were doing something good, he'd be okay with it.>>1622630You will still be capable of reproductionAnd as long as you're still around, she'll be okay with it
>>1622633Will the child be more powerful, having been born of god seed?
>>1622643Eh, who knows?
>>1622655Eugenics aside, in the unlikely chance we roll well in combat next time and the 3 of us beat the androids, how upset will Goku be not getting to fight?Also, what are the chances of 13, 14 and 15 showing up? If we don't blow the whole damn lab up?
>>1622643>>1622655Considering the fact that the kids were stronger based off of when they were conceived probably.
>>1622667He'll get over it
>>1622675So basically he would want to continue the fight from when he got back since he wouldn't want his three years of training to go to waste without at least one fight.
>>1622700Meh, tofoo and piccolo will be fun fights too, especially if piccolo and kami end up fusing.
https://pastebin.com/p7DrLaLMTwisted Future Part 4 for those who missed it
So with 19 And 20 getting overall buffs to their tanking and DPS, is it worth it to run a 16/17/18 comp anymore? The meta is still Androids until the Cell DLC drops, but are Yamcha, Chi-chi, and other low tiers going to gain any counters?Also when are Vegeta and Nappa getting patched back in? I understand Oozaru being op, but that was like ten patches ago. They'd be bottom tier in the current meta without a buff. Hell, replace Oozaru with a golden form like Goku's, that seems balanced. With Kami And Piccolo possibly being combined into one hero, the roster is gonna need padding out anyway
