This artefact is a staff that has existed since ancient times, and can grow and shrink at the wielders whim. It was used to connect Karin’s Tower to Kami-Sama’s Sanctuary. Karin was to give the staff to someone worthy of meeting God.
Karin gave the staff to Muten Roshi, after he pleaded him for it. Karin did not think him worthy of meeting God, but had resigned to the idea that no one worthy would ever come. Muten Roshi later gave the staff to Son Gohan (Sr.), who passed it on to Son Goku.
Son Goku used the Nyoi-Bo as a weapon during his childhood, and even used it to transport people as far as the moon. After his battle with Piccolo, Goku used the Nyoi-Bo to travel to the Sanctuary so he could ask for the Dragon Balls to be restored. The Nyoi-Bo was never used again after this, and remained connecting the two structures.

They plan to arrest him right before arriving at the New Continent but they fear conflict among the Zodiacs due to Mizaistom’s means of gathering secret information on them to out a spy with little evidence from a “Novice”. A new problem arises when 6 request made by princes to hire body guards guarantee passage to the voyage to Hunters who were eliminated…
