https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HnMnOSU2S5QThe stories tell of a time long ago, when the great and powerful witch Wuya saught to claim dominion of everything under the heavens. With her sorcerous might she toppled warlords, emperors, noble mystics and martial artists alike until she was defeated.By Grand Master Dashi.Creator and Wielder of the Shen Gong Wu, he was the sole remaining Master of Martial Arts and the last ray of hope in a desolated world. As he worked without sleep for four and nine months to create his arsenal of magnificent tools; he took that ray of hope and honed it into something unbelievable.A miracle.The scrolls and scholars claim the battle lasted decades. Both the Father of Xiaolin and Mother of Heylin's powers being great enough to warp time itself into erroneous passage in their battle.But only a handful of sources can lay claim to the truth of Wuya's final moments. Only those scant handful know the true finale to Damashi's greatest moment.Only a handful of sources from whom you could learn what happened on that fateful day...> Pick 1 + Gender, Country of Origin and Name.> Wuya herself appeared to you.> Chase Young had his eye on you and revealed a great truth to you.> Master Monk Guam decided the time had come for you to know.> The Scroll of the Shen Gong Wu reveals all to you.> While farming, you found the last will and testament of Grand Master Dashi.

Welcome to Xiaolin Quest. A Quest based in the world of Xiaolin Showdown, a surprisingly decent cartoon that came out in mid 2000s.While I don't know if we'll be Xiaolin, Heylin or Neutral. I can't wait to write some dumb cartoon martial arts.

>>2760674>>2760673>>2760670>>2760660>>2760658Alright.We are the last scion of the Turei Maori; Oliver Turei. If anyone has good cartoon/anime faceclaims get them in now.The life of the Maori is one of struggle, but also of peace.It is an acknowledgement of one's past through the blood in their veins.It is acknowledging one's present through the air in their lungs.It is preparing for ones future in sharpening the body and mind for the challenges ahead.It is learning to become one with the Island, the ancestors, the seas, the spirits.You have watched from afar as the other families in the Te hapori drifted. They forgot the words and exhalations. Children became more focused on the wonders of the West and East than the miracles of their own marks and songs.The Te Tae Karaka became a shadow of itself. No longer the necessary wisdom it was once held as. Children no longer engraved and etched marks on the world with intent; simply letting their fathers' crafts fade into obscurity while they left marks of indifference with their footsteps.Farms went shorthanded as Te toto after Te toto left their Te Hapori to fade into a shadow of what it once was. The brilliant brazier beginning to fade to embers in morning rain. But your family was steadfast in their adherence to the old ways. You were raised Maori and your marks were those of power and pride. Your tattoos ripple with the blessings of your forebears and your muscles sculpt the very island with their carving.And blessings you received.You received the truth of the feared one. The Leech Lady.She was not slain as feared; as Dashi - Outlander of many wonders' own memoirs as entrusted to the great grandfather of your great great grandfather admitted. His messages weren't written in the scrolls of the Yellow Monks, but instead carved into the white wood of your family and sealed with a crimson Ray.A crimson ray that began to glow.> You felt the volcano within you.> Each blade of grass was like a hair on your skin.> The waters sang to you.> The Maori's breath became yours.> Write-In a powerset.
>>2760748>You felt the volcano within you.

>>2760785>>2760769>>2760766>>2760764>>2760754Going to give 10-15 for this so I can do some brainstorming and give time for any drawfags or faceclaims to (Hopefully) show up.
>>2760626Please stop, this is just embarrassing
>>2760837>>2760807>>2760785>>2760769>>2760766>>2760764>>2760754Called for Volcano. Writing soon.One suggestion for Faceclaim was Maui from Moana. I've looked for some fanart that's very not disney in style but nothing has grabbed me yet. There's surprisingly little Maori art online apparently.
>>2760837>>2760807>>2760785>>2760769>>2760766>>2760764>>2760754As you slide the Crimson Ray into the collection of shells, symbols and trophies around your neck the very island begins to speak to you in the tongue of your elders. A fever unlike any sickness burning within and scouring the weakness from your flesh and bones to fan a fearsome spirit to life.With no external prompting your arms slide shoulder length apart and every breath you've ever taken in your life is exhaled in a single roar that shakes birds from the trees. Both palms strike your thighs and then you slap eaither side of your chest to allow the light to shine on a sequence of new tattoos that have become integral to the overall tapestry of your lineage.Amidst the legacy of your grandfathers first hunt dance a pair of dragons who shine crimson and amber just as the corals at sunset have done since the mountians were but hills and the island were a babe. As the unfamiliar movements come faster and more ferocious, the scarlet ray hanging from your neck glows brilliantly, blinding any would be snoops and handing you the power to change the world and face off against the Leech Lady.From elbow to fingertip, your arms are drenched in the volcano's blood. The physical embodiment of;"Mana. Young Turei." Someone says from behind you, his voice booming. As you reach for your spear and grasp the rapidly warping, melting, flaming weapon as easily as you would a cup of water; the island stands.A striking conglomaoration of the thornbush and bark. It strides forward with a burning mouth and glowing green eyes that study you in the same manner snakes study mice. "You know me?""I know you." You confirm."I am Tapu. I am your home.""You are the Island, you are safety." Repeating the teachings is a source of comfort for many Maori and you are certainly one of them.The voice seems to be coming from all around as it continues. "I am endangered. By the outsiders. By the sands of time. But most of all; by the Witch's return." "What can I do?""I have given you the Volcano Mana." Tapu says. "You will hunt the rtifacts of Dashi. You will bring them here, to me. And the Maori will stop the Leech Lady from returning to power.""I... I am to become Minita Tapu." You state in shock, the title the thing of dreams. The sacred warrior of the Maori who is blessed by the islands in times of crisis."You are to board a boat. And seek your first artifact."> A coin> A sash> A beetle> A Monocle
>>2760907>> A beetle

I swear I wrote and posted the next post before sleeping. What the fuck.
>>2760955>>2760954>>2760926>>2760918>>2760914You feel your spirit being torn from your body smoothly, Tapu peeling your being away from your mortal coil while floating around you in the guise of a small blue light. Both of you fly over the oceans and plunge into it's dark depths, leaving your blinded and buffeted by the pressure.But soon your vision clears as you cross some kind of threshold and behold something from a fable. Four masts remain staunchly upright despite time and the oceans' best efforts to bring them low and before you the splintered deck of a huge pirate ship seems to nestle on the seabed neatly.As Tapu takes you back to your body, you complete the haka that you have been singing and performing this whole time - a solid roar coming from your breast with eyes rolled back and tongue extended.You know now, you know what you must do.Dashi many wonders' treasures must be kept from the hands of evil and Minita Tapu will lead the Maori to victory over the forces of darkness. That will be your destiny, your mark upon this world.> As the vision fades you headed straight for a boat.> You should probably tell your family before emerging on a world spanning battle against evil> You need to prepare, make a new weapon.> Head into the modern town.

>>2765705>>2765197>>2765195>>2764088>>2763375>>2762883>>2762855>>2762824>>2762814Before you set off towards the beaches of your lifelong home, you take off towards the ever expanding domicile of your Father. In his old age he has become nothing but a shadow of himself, though it is the shadow of a forest fire a shadow it still remains.One time bulging muscles have receded to the point his ink almost completely submerges the outlines of the strength he has managed to squander beyond the reach of time's decay and the marks he leaves with each day pale in comparison to the ones left in his youth.Now his contributions to the island consist of constructions and repairs the likes of which his rough hands look completely unsuited for, moving with a grace and delicate precision from years of focus.Standing on top of a wooden ladder you helped him construct on a long afternoon, he is comfortable in his perch and smiling faintly while he studies the hand built join between your childhood bedroom and the extension for a sibling long since departed to the modern world.You are loathe to drag him out of the past, but he needs to know what has happened. He needs to know you will not follow your siblings when you leave, but remain Maori. Whatever may come, he needs to know you are still his child.
>>2768643"Father." You say quietly, making sure to address him with the respect he deserves."It has happened, hasn't it Oliver? The Island has called to you." though his face is soft and smiling, the bass in his voice makes him seem intimidating no matter the difference in age."I am to be Minita Tapu." You say, somewhat taken aback by the directness. "I am to travel the world and prevent the evil ones from claiming the treasures of Dashi." You try to maintain eye contact but something about your father forces you to inspect the ground by your feet, his titanic force of presence still enough to quell any impetuousness in you.Where once he would have stood two heads taller than you, your father now stands a hair shorter. But when he looks at you with wet eyes, you realise what the Island is asking of him now. Tapu is asking one of it's most dedicated and long lived servants to give up the last of his loves. "It asked me of you for many years. It asked me of all of my children. The Island has always been watching the Turei." A strong hand on your shoulder shoves you back, causing you stumble and fall on to your backside. "If you thought that I would let you go without proving you are Minita Tapu. You are wrong Oliver."You father moves away from the ladder, removing the old shirt that he wore when working on the house as he does so. The years seeming to peel off him with every breath. "Stand, Maori. Stand and face me in Ko te Pai."He begins a haka, making it very obvious that this is non negotiable. While staring into your father's eyes you find your own feet and begin mirroring his movements. Both of you chant, scream and move in unison.The haka bringing serenity and focus as it pleads for the Island to choose who stands more worthy as Maori. As you finish with a twin roar, your Father spits into the dirt daring you to make the first move as the man who taught you everything you know. Combat Begin Combat in this quest will utilise stats. Dice will be rolled depending on which stat is used. The formulae for rolls are, Level of statd10.Anytime multiple 10s are rolled. This is a crit.

>>2768947>>2768840>>2768821>>2768701>>2768667>>2768662>>2768657Sorry, going to delay the post since I forget how to fucking write today apparently. Very sorry guys.TLDR: Oscar starts with level 5 Martial Arts.
Either Fighting or Mana would make the most sense with our guy cause funny enough Maori were really big with the whole Mana thing. Eating their enemies or the daughters eating the grandmothers for their Mana or Power was big in the Maori culture. Lets hope we don't start eating our fallen enemies though not sure what the rest of the kids would think.
>>2771501I don't think that'd get past the censors. This is still a kids' show, after all.
>>2771501maybe something similar like just eating a meal right after combat or something
>>2771501>>2771539We eat something of theirs.If they got a hat, we eat their hat.

>>2768947>>2768840>>2768821>>2768701>>2768667>>2768662>>2768657>>2771501>>2771536>>2771539>>2771935>>2772036>>2772047With a guttural roar, both your father and your charge at each other to close the distance in surprising time. Each of you drop your shoulder in an attempt to buffet the other over and end the fight before it began.Both of you jockey for position in the stalemate, Like a pair of rams locking horns both of you throw every pound of muscle and might at the other. You footing begins to fade first, forcing you to disengage to the side and fend off your father with a pair of wild swinging punches that could send the old Maori clean off his feet should they connect.Circling slowly, both of you stares the other down in search of any vulnerability or weakness. His experience of fighting beasts and men outweighs yours to such a significant degree that your advantages in strength and speed will be hard to leverage. There was a reason the voice of Turei spoke the loudest on the island even after the shame of your siblings' departures; and that reason is that Matu Turei in his prime was one of the fiercest Maori to walk the island.Even now, when you would lay claim to the title of most powerful Maori, you do not feel in the advantage here. Nor do you feel comfortable as your father's punches crash against your guard like waves on the shore. Even if he has not penetrated your defences or been particularly convincing in fending you off, Matu Turei's aged shadow is still a mountain to climb.> Pick Secondary Focus> MANA> WEAPON> INTELLECT> DEFENCE/AGILITY

While you brace for the next bone rattling punch to strike your forearms, you are taken by surprise when instead he grabs you by the wrists and tosses you bodily across the grass.Like a rock on the waves you skip across the dirt until you can bend your knees to slide across the rocky field, allowing you to witness your father's pursuit. Getting to your feet, the ray pendant hanging from your neck glows like glass in a summer rain.As your father's eyes narrow, fire fills your limbs and reinvigorates you to the point that you charge forward and strikes your father's stomach. The Island's power coating your fist in orange lava that singes his flesh even as your blow connects and halts his momentum dead.The cry of a man so large in a fight is something to behold, whether it be in rage or pain. And as much as you would deny it to the day you died; you enjoyed that sign of your success to the point you pursued his desperate retreat, fists glowing and leaving trails of burning magma that sizzled the grass beneath your feet in a spectacular orange trail, every step leaving another dozen or so scorched patches and retelling the steps of your battle.It looks like your father is on the ropes, until the elder man lets out a sharp shout of "TAPU!" and his own gifts manifest,His shout is like the tides themselves had awoken, the wind from his lungs and the air all slamming into you and driving you back once more. The older man' muscles shaking from the exertion of this power, some kind of exhaustion coming from channeling enough of his mana to blow you back through the air into the nearest tree to your home like a leaf in a monsoon.Upon impact, it takes a short time for the ground to come into focus and your body to begin moving. Rising is far more difficult than you would expect, but the ringing in your ears and the desire to prove yourself is enough to suppress the ever growing desire to press for answer about your father's mana."TAPU!" You respond, rolling your eyes and presenting your tongue in challenge to your father. The Volcano Mana exploding in potency to the point you become encased in solidifying lava; taking a form of pure mana. Where once your skin was coloured by the sun and decorated with solid black ink, your skin is now the deep grey of the Island's deep crust and where was ink is now burning red engravings that paint you in lava and fire."Minita Tapu..." Your father says in awe, taking up some kind of martial arts stance. "Gong Yi Tan Pai!" At this strange proclamation he comes for you, all sign of familiarity and tenderness replaced with Maori ferocity.Before meeting his charge you can only say, "May the best Maori win."
