The tree nodded slowly. "I see." Closing his eyes for a moment, he seemed to be deep in thought. Opening them once more, he looked about.
"I intend to gather the Dragon Balls, and ensure that the SSE is finished, and Earth is safe. It is possible Bing will be returned to his senses before that, so I cannot guarantee the wish will deal with him. Right now, he is far more powerful, and much harder to kill. I would rather wish him back when there is less danger of him being fully slain."
Nodding at Defrosch as the Arcosian left, he turned to each of them. "I mean no offense, but I suspect that more than just us would be required to assault Vegeta. I feel that letting the SSE come to us might be foolhardy, but until a consensus can be reached, I can only agree with Lusca. Train as hard as you can. Gather as many fighters as will answer the call. If worst comes to worst... I will try and retrieve as many of you as I can and flee the planet, children taking first priority. If I should die, my son will do so in my place. Sic Semper Tyrannus."
Turning, the tree lifted upwards, saluting them all, and sped off.

Ninjin nodded toward Defrosch in agreement to his rather blunt statement. She would most certainly have to invest into one. Though she had a source were she could get a more rugged scouter than normal and she would have to call upon her sister’s expertise. As Defrosch took off in a burst of ki after he said what he did she raised her arm ever so slightly to cover her eyes. It was more out of reflex than an actual need but she did it all the same. Closing her eyes she knew that it seemed to her that her cousin was truly mad at just about everything. Yet she had a nagging doubt within her mind about her. As if she still believed that there was some good somewhere within the woman that was Zucceta. Though she nodded in agreement with Articho when he spoke about not mentioning it to the others. “I would agree with Articho on this… Though there will come a point when we will need to tell the both of them. So that they are not shocked when Zucceta sends him after them when the war commences. As for our Kienzan.. Simply put we need to pick our spots Articho. Also could use it to take down the weaker members of her army with single strikes to allow the strongest among us to get up front and fight those that require their attention instead of being worn down by the smaller fries. As for killing….”
She looked down at her hands for the moment before sighing to herself. It was a battle within her mind and yet she knew full well that to the saiyans. If they came to fight the Earth then kill or be killed will become the norm. “Sometimes Articho there are moments that you will need to kill or be killed. In that moment you will need to steel yourself because I know in that moment I will raise my hand and not hesitate to strike down those that are coming to destroy this planet. Those that threaten my family deserve no mercy.”
Her small speech over she listened to Lusca speak about using the Dragon Balls to revive him to their side instead of being upon the side of the SSE. “And I assume that Namek does not have any Dragon Balls Miss Lusca? I only ask because if we managed to somehow get both and use the power then perhaps we could strengthen ourselves and save the life of our Kami. “ Though she finished speaking she heard Walker speaking once more. The words were truthfilled and she hoped he was right. She hoped that there was a way that Bing could be returned to his senses long before the wish was needed. Yet she just had this nagging doubt yet she did remember Kojima. Her long dead boyfriend who was partially controlled by a machine of Empire creation and yet through sheer will he managed to carve out a life for himself.
“I know of one person who managed to overcome cyborg influence through sheer willpower. Though it came in bursts and could have bad consequences on himself when it happened. Sadly he is long dead and we cannot ask for the hows to how he did this. But yes Walker I say that we will need to become stronger no matter what. We need strength and despite what I feel I do not think that we will have Kaula or Reikiko appearing from the afterlife to help us either… “ She spoke and then sighed loudly before turning her ki flaring for a moment as she was thinking about her next move. In her mind the next move would be to train with her Super Saiyan husband. “Arti as soon as I regain Super Saiyan come by. We will train as we did in the old days…”
After speaking she took off into the sky and headed back toward her home after bowing toward everyone.

Articho felt his temper flare up as he watched Walker begin to fly away. The mere thought of fleeing, no, abandoning Earth should the war go south for them was absolutely sickening. The fact that Walker was actually considering it as a viable option to choose made it all even worse. Some caretaker he was turning out to be. The hybrid crossed his arms as he glared up at the tree man. "Running away is what cowards do," he spat. "We can't leave Earth or its people vulnerable to the wrath of the Saiyans, not when they need us most. I'm not leaving, no matter how bad it gets. But you can run, Walker. You can run to the ends of the Galaxy is you wanted to. Hopefully that's far enough to escape the screams from the dying people of your planet."
Articho looked over to Ninjin and shook his head. "It won't make a difference either way. Neither of them will be prepared to face Bing even if they knew before hand. It's better that they think he's dead and we should work to keep it that way. At least they can have hope that he'll be back eventually." He paused for a moment, sighing in frustration. "As of right now," he continued, "the strongest among us is a quickly dwindling number on the track we're headed, it's gonna be us pretty soon. So that puts us in quite the predicament with your plan and us heavily outnumbered."
Articho's eyes flashed with a mixture of anger and determination, but he kept his mouth shut for the moment. He didn't want to kill anyone. No matter how much he despised the Saiyans, he didn't want to find it in himself to end another person's life. But Articho knew. He knew he has the capability festering somewhere within him, itching to get out, waiting for the moment where he had to choose between someone he loved and what he believed. It knew the answer all too well. "We'll see," was the only thing he said.
He watched Ninjin leave and nodded in agreement with her suggestion. "I'll hold you to it," he replied, managing to force a smile onto his face. After his former master disappeared into the sky, his face fell again and the hybrid turned to look back at the building in the center of the Lookout. "There has to be something..." he mumbled to himself as he entered it and headed towards the library. He had some reading to do.
[Exit Thread, PL please]
"Fun fact: Kamehamehas are just as effective fire stoppers as they are destructive waves of death."
Lusca shook her head at the woman's inquiry. "No, Namek doesn't have access to its Dragon Balls. Helix was going to be the one to remake them before his... Fission counterpart Xylo was slain by the Saiyans." she informed Ninjin. She watched as everyone began to go their separate ways, sighing and rolling her shoulders. "No time like the present... going to get to work on getting in some more training done. I've got some catching up to do by the looks of things." said the feminine Namekian in regards to everyone elses power in relation to her own. With that, she immediately began to set off into a training routine right then and there on the Lookout.
