Thank you to all of the authors who gave me permission to make fun of them on the internet.

Don’t be a dick (this goes for me too)! These are real folks who are all wonderful authors in their own unique ways, and I’m the one writing so if you don’t like something it’s my fault.

After a long year of trials and auditions, you (MasterQuest Judge Steve), have selected eight promising candidates to compete at the highest level of quest making for the meaningless title of Most Marvelous Boy:

The format of the competition is as follows: each episode will have two quest making tasks, the first to choose a frontrunner and the next for elimination. You get to design the tasks to trip up different candidates. (Examples: Choose plot elements they have to use, other authors they have to imitate, genre, SFW/NSFW, etc.)

For the first task each episode, you pick three candidates you think have the most promising content to examine more closely and choose a frontrunner who will have an advantage going forward. For the second task you pick three candidates with the least promising ‘dishes’ to single out one for elimination.

Drama between the competitors is encouraged and you can cut away any time for a behind the scenes interview segment.

Choose the first challenge (and the three candidates you’ll judge to pick the frontrunner)!

One of the hardest parts about running a quest is setting everything up. For this first challenge, let's see which of these authors can establish their setting's the fastest. We should consider how Understandable the rules of the setting are, How many posts it takes before the reader understands it, and of course which setting Tastes the best.

Let's focus on Rowawaway, Edpineapple, and LurkingLurker for this one.

Create an engaging combat system!

Let's judge these three to pick the frontrunner:

No. 1019495 ID: ce39da

The first-ever frontrunner challenge should be pretty free-form. 'Design an appealing protagonist!' sounds about right.

"Make sure to include a full-body portrait, descriptions of their personality, backstory, and current circumstances, as well as the genre they occupy. Additional outfits and poses are optional but welcome!"

The three candidates who'll prolly excel at this are... tipler, Rowawaway, and Sarcophagus.

More than anything the hallmark of a quest is staying power and the ability to produce things quickly, efficiently and to standard. To that end, the first challenge will be drawing Telegram sticker sheets of their Quest characters and then shilling them to online communities, with the winner selling the most copies!

First Task: Choose the best fruit/vegetable. Because every quest needs one.

>Design an interesting protagonist
>Rowawaway, Edpineapple, Lurking Lurker

You start with a short interview from each candidate to get an idea of what they’re planning.
Rowawaway appears to be some kind of bird creature wearing a postal hat. He talks quickly and nervously to the camera.

“A good protagonist? Well that’s always tricky, I find what works for me is to get a diminutive sweet little man or a large, powerful woman. Original alien species of course, furry adjacent. I’m excited to show my stuff as one of the younger competitors!”

Edpineapple is a bosomly cat woman, who gives the camera a disheartening view of her bare privates as she sprawls in the chair.

“What I do when I make a protagonist is just make them absolutely ****ing overpowered, yet unable to accomplish anything due to scope of the story they’re in.” she explains. “Gets them every time.”

Lurking Lurker is some kind of goblin-like mollusk hiding in a brown shell.

“See, the single protagonist model is inherently flawed. To have a dynamic and rich story you need either a rotating cast or a large crew of unique characters. There is no hero is real life, the quest protagonists should be as dynamic as the suggestors themselves.”

Who do you choose as the winner of this task? They will show off their completed protagonist.

Rowawaway wins!

MasterQuest has a strong nondiscrimination policy against their authors, so using the wonders of TV magic, the episode cuts to when LL has finished his piece.

“Ah, very good.” you examine the lineup of honest anthropomorphized animals. “I see a snake there, by chance will we get some snussy action?”

LL snatches back the drawing. “No.”

“Well, Lurking Lurker, since you won, you’re immune to elimination for two episodes. Take a seat up at the balcony so you can heckle the other contestants.”

For elimination rounds the three at risk will be randomly chosen. Previous suggestions will be taken into account for a possible task, but feel free to support or suggest more options.

Alright, for the full quest challenge, it's time to make a classic Abandoned Facility Quest! This lends itself well to blank-slate protagonists, so no pressure there, and true to classic form, you can probably get away with cutting off your submitted thread at some arbitrary point when the MC can get a breather. (It'd be obscene to ask contestants to do a full series quest for a single challenge, after all!)

You have a most evil and wicked idea. What if you based the first elimination purely on a dice roll to show the treacherous nature of the random chance influenced quest.

Ohohohohohoho, how villainous! And very easy for the lazy author to implement!

>A brief segue to Bagel
Production carries the bread product to the interview chair.

“I’m so excited to be here.” it gushes. “I have a lot of ups and downs with my feelings about my quests and being invited here means that I really have what it takes. I’m still improving and even if I’m eliminated I’ll be so glad to have had this opportunity.”

Wow, what an inspirational piece of cooked dough. Back to the depression.

You call up the chosen three and have them roll a virtual dice. Edpineapple gets an 8, the lowest by far. The cat pales but hands over her drawing tablet.

>Closing interview
“I’m very disappointed to be going home so early on a task that was literal bullshit.” the cat sniffles. “I guess it’s poetic, in a way, because I’ve never been lucky when rolling dice. This isn’t going to stop me from making the best mechanic heavy quests on the site though, and being a mega chad, and posting exotic furry porn from twitter in the discord.”

Tensions have risen between Hymitsu and tipler over Edpineapple and the role of RNG in quests. Rowawaway is jealous of LL for winning the first contest and considers the clam-goblin his biggest competition.

None of this concerns Bagel, who is enjoying the complementary MasterQuest coffee. You’re greeting the competitors when you hear a shriek of terror.

Bagel goes first because it has an urgent date with the Supreme Court to deliver the opening arguments of some case and needs to be flown from LA to Washington DC immediately.

The vaguely equine contestant has been keeping a low profile so far and speaks with some hesitation about his ideas.

“Since Ruby Quest is already the most popular and famous example of this genre, I would try to differentiate myself with a twist. Perhaps the readers play as the person trying to keep the amnesiac trapped? People like a formula though, so I’m not sure it would get enough interaction…”

The cute wolf girl takes a seat and starts to explain her concept. “I think there’s a great opportunity to do a quest like this that has more detailed world building and art. The main character doesn’t have to be a total amnesiac, and rather than horror or sci-fi a fantasy style would be a refreshing take.”

“What do I think of my competitors? Oh, they’re all very intimidating, I’d like to talk to them more but I’m shy, haha.”

Who’s the winner? You’ll actually ask them to play a bit of their quest.

Corvid doesn't have a well defined vision. There have been several facility quests with very detailed world building and art. Trying to surpass your peers isn't just a mundane goal, it is a dangerous one.
Bagel doesn't really have a vision at all. Just a main character? Bah.

“Alright, first things first, is the protag a boy or a girl?” tipler asks, stealing control from team leader Corvid immediately.

“Um, girl?” says Corvid.

“We can even have a female MC and mostly female ensemble.” adds Bagel eagerly. “Rotating POVs, butts, maybe one smooch a year if they’re lucky.”

The group designs a mix of humanoid and furry ladies with relatively low horny levels.
