CHROMO'S PL: 1 (180k BASE | SUPPRESSED)
Fukurou's trees were thick and old, roots twisted and mangled. Birds sung in the high, arching canopies, so dense that those who walked below could only see the occasional streak of sunlight that rarely touched the forest floor. Among the chirps of the birds was a foreign, insectoid buzzing. One lone trickle of sunlight shone off a spherical, smooth orange surface off the beaten dirt road. Nestled in a mess of foliage was a small orb, glittering with five red stars beneath its amber coating. A Dragon Ball... but not an unclaimed one.
This was a genius plan! Before Chromo and his new friend went about their wish, the beetle wanted to... take care of any lingering competition who thought they were slick, likely laying a trap for them for when they summoned Shenron. Well, he was going to show them, because he was the one trapping them now! Littered through the woods here and there were members of his swarm- smaller, football-shaped imperfect versions of himself that nestled in the trees to scout for others around. The blank-eyed beetles could easily be mistaken for wildlife, after all.
As for his cunning trap itself, Chromo nestled the Dragon Ball in some shrubbery off Fukurou's trodden roads. He tried to hide it a little, but not too much. If it was completely out in the open, people might get suspicious, after all! He'd smeared some dirt on it for good measure. The trap itself consistsed of a snare made of vines- when someone would approach the Dragon Ball, they'd promptly be snagged by the ankle by the leafy loop and hoisted into the air! A classic trap he'd seen work really well in movies. He'd even used some of his own acidic saliva as an adhesive- when it dried it was very durable, so it would hopefully keep even someone adept with ki in place for a bit. There was no way this could fail!
Chromo snickered quietly to himself, hiding above in the canopy of the trees.
All he had to do now was wait for someone dumb enough to stroll by...
