Welcome to the Quest Advice thread Mk. 2! Anyone is welcome to offer advice or ask questions about the amazing world of interactive storytelling!

Check the wiki page for additional information and tips: http://questden.org/wiki/Advice_for_Running_a_Quest

The Questden discord may also be of assistance: https://discord.gg/Fh5zMTX

The board uses internal IDs to refer to both posts and threads. Posts and threads use the same set of IDs. The archive uses the same set of IDs as the quests, so that old quest links get automatically redirected to the archive. I don't know for sure what other ramifications this could have, but I know that, for instance, it can create some ambiguity in what post or thread a link is meant to go to.

PET Absorber
A semi-viscous yet stable orb. Contact with solid matter causes it to form sharp spikes. When it pierces the bloodstream, user will become less emotional.
Hidden: This is actually an emotion absorber which can permanently absorb any excessive personality trait (lust to the point of nymphomania, pride to the point of megalomania, etc), bringing it down to levels normal for the average local population. This will store the emotion as a personality core for transfer into another user. The same user can re-absorb their own personality core. Attempting to use this on a user with no excessive emotional traits will have no mental effect.

Dove of Suffering
This dove-shaped mask allows the user to mind-control a target by staring them in the eye and ordering them to perform a task. Effects vary between targets and may not work. If successful, target will not be capable of remembering the command or what they do while performing it.
Hidden: With excessive willpower from the user, chanting the trigger phrase "Suffer Me Now" will allow the user to dominate a weak-willed target permanently. Effect is stronger if the user makes contact with the target while forcing stress.

Voodoo Origami Box[b]
A cardboard box with perforated indentations. When the box contains an object and a user folds the object along one of its indentations, the object inside the box will enter a pocket dimension and change properties. This will reveal a separate opening in the box to retrieve the object. Object functions are dependent on the perforations and order used.
Hidden: The box is a living specimen. Over time, it will grow and gain new functions by absorbing negligible mass from the objects placed inside it, including soul matter. Cutting the box by its perforations disables the corresponding function and creates two smaller boxes with split functionalities.

Ankh of resurrection
Should the user die whilst holding the Ankh, the Ankh will break and the user will be revived at a random nearby location, has a 30% chance to revive you as an ANGEL.

This is pretty much just like the phoenix ring, except instead of it having the chance of turning you into a DEMON, it turns you into an ANGEL

Here is the interesting part: if you have both the PHOENIX RING and have the ANKH with you, both percentages of becoming an angel and demon adds up to 60 percent, and you have a 60% chance of becoming a one of a kind FALLEN ANGEL, a hybrid between an ANGEL and a DEMON. You have the powers of both a demon and an angel, with new powers that only a FALLEN ANGEL can have, and new powers that are combined between an ANGEL and DEMON power. You will not be aligned by either demons nor angels but become your own thing.


This is a crystal ball that can show the future, but needs to be leveled up for it to be accurate.

When you first use it, you'll see a vision of the future of anything you ask it, or at random, and it has a 5% chance of coming true if you don't do anything. When the crystal ball gets a prediction right, the accuracy of its next prediction adds up by another 5% with the max being 90%. However, if it gets any predictions wrong, its percentage of accuracy goes all the way back to 5%. Any prediction, even at 90% can also easily be prevented once you find out about it, but you will also reset the crystal ball accuracy by successfully fighting fate (like if you witness your death by a certain monster and decide to avoid said monster)

In order to level it up effectively, you'll need to fulfill each of the crystal balls' predictions yourself. So if the crystal ball see's you going someplace at a specific time, you need to go there a

Some Materials

Mimoplastic: Magically made plastic material that has the ability to easily mimic the look, feel and sometimes properties of other materials it has come in contact with. Because of these properties, its often used in the construction of artifact replicas, or forgeries. It can also be processed into a rubber-like form to make realistic disguises, or to cover other materials to make them appear different.

Protoplasma: A thick and clear gelatinous substance of unclear origin. Its clearly supernatural and responds to the intentions of those touching it, causing it to change its shape and form. Because it frequently appears in areas that Spirits re active, its theorized to possibly be a byproduct of them moving through different planes of existence, especially through physical objects. It can be used as both a catalyst and power source for spell casting, but consumes mass when used as power. When covering an energy storing/using object, it can drain some that energy and grow in mass.

and other stuff

DELICIOUS! Bait:A plastic pouch with an unfamiliar brand, containing multicolored lumps of ground bait. The scent and taste of the bait once removed from the pouch seems to be irresistible to non-sentient animals and monsters, so much so that it will draw even the cautious and intelligent ones to it, even against their instincts. Its ingredients are unclear. Once the pouch has been emptied, it will refill on its own after 24 hours.

Lucky Coin : An antique gold coin. It seems valuable, and keeping it on your person makes you more lucky.
Hidden Effect: If you flip the coin in order to make a decision, and you faithfully go along with the result of the flip, Whatever choice you made has a higher chance of working out in your favor.

Luxurious Hair Clip:A fancy hair clip made of polished ebony and bone. Wearing it causes the wearer's hair to s

I assume I can use this thread for shards?
Cuz I just had a thought on it charcuterie, Chi.
Back in the previous year it was mentioned that we were as strong as a human soldier, which was impressive since our kind are generally weaker than humans.
I thought, oh that's cool, we stronk.
It somehow didn't occur to me that we were A FREAKING NINE YEAR OLD.
We weren't even terribly more athletic than average.
Even with the ATHLETIC PHYSIQUE bonus it's kind of absurd!
At this rate of growth we could end up with HERCULEAN STRENGTH.

Normally I would be super gung ho about magic n stuff, but y'know...
If we got a gift, might as well lean into it.

Working as a guest quest author for the CATALYST intermission was a lot of fun, and I wanted to draw Kelsey one last time.

So I drew her visiting the Hapless Stone for whatever reason. She seems to be in an argument with Oriel. (random Aeglos Wood spying on them in the distance. Lets hope he doesn't interview Kelsey on her PABE fame for his next big scoop)

I wanted to have her wear something more casual than her fighting stealth uniform seen in PABE. I always imagined her in a hooded poncho.

What does the dig action do? Does Improved Diggy Hole let that corg move underground or is it more like, performing the dig action for free at the end of the movement?
No. 135725 ID: 19da02

Performing the dig action for free at any point in their movement, but that lets you burrow sometimes.

So, for instance, if there's diggable terrain, you'd normally have to move up to it, and then dig it (which will move you through/in the diggable terrain, dependng on what it is.)

With improved diggy hole, you can move, move through/in the diggable terrain as part of that move, and then take your second action to do something else.

Here are two examples:

1) There's a fence and the ground is dirt. Digging would move you to the other side of the fence.

2) The entire ground is loose sand.
You can move through the sand by either using the dig action, or just moving with improved diggy hole.

Does that make sense?
No. 135726 ID: 96c896

Oh, so, digging is a special action that generally involves movement as well, and improved diggy hole lets you do it for free.... does that mean in some situations the corg would be able to move further than normal in a single movement if there's digging involved in it?
No. 135727 ID: 19da02

I'm not sure exactly what you mean. If they have diggy hole, they have to use an action and they'll get moved definitely less than if they were just moving over the ground. If they have improved diggy hole, they move at their normal rate of movement and dig through digging materials in their path as part of their movement. If you don't have either one, you can't take a dig action.

If it's an obstacle, like a fence you can dig under, with diggy hole, that's your whole movement, moving from one side to the other. If you don't have enough movement with improved diggy hole to get to the other side, you won't move to the other side of the fence.
No. 135730 ID: 96c896

>If you don't have enough movement with improved diggy hole to get to the other side, you won't move to the other side of the fence.
Ah, that was the part I assumed worked to our advantage with Improved Diggy Hole. Nevermind then.

'Because nothing says quality like a 16x16 image!' - Cirr, as paraphrased by Lago as best as he could remember it after, instead of adding the following edit, he completely overwrote the whole post with it.

Lagotrope edit: To have a favicon added, I need author approval. Hence, the author of the respective quest must either post the favicon themselves or, if a favicon they like is already in the thread somewhere, refer to the favicon's post number and approve it. Either way, please supply the URL to the quest as well, thank you.

In short I need 3 things: author approval, the favicon, and the quest link.

Whoa what's this?! It's a strip poker executable that isn't terrible! That's right, this baby will run on your machine without any modifications or hassle! And compiling new modules? It's a breeze! You can even customize the GUI and the cards themselves! Amazing!

And it's free, from you to me! It's taken me 4 days of development to get to the point you see in this picture. Now, there is one catch: It's not quite done yet. I need to iron out the bugs, tweak the AI, and whip up a character selection screen before I can release it. The last is the most important, since right now I'm selecting characters from the command line, and that won't work on a compiled .exe.

But, when that's all done, I'll convert the poker .dll's I have into modules for this, package it all up, and release it and the source code. You can expect that probably by Friday, February 22nd at the latest, but I'll try to get it out earlier.

So, this will be a poker .exe you can run easily, with modules that can be easily made and added, and you'll be able to put together GUI and card packs and distribute those freely, and you can take a look at the code and try and debug it for me.

I've got a few goals for this beyond what's going to be in the initial release:
* Up to 4 opponents (that's why there's empty space, and that's what the bar under the image is for).
* Supporting images bigger than 400x400 without resizing.
* Allowing you to resize the window freely.
* Playing as one of the characters.
* Replacing the text fields with images so you can replace that too.
* Total GUI customization, including the colors of the lines, up to complete rearrangement of everything in the game.

I was a bit surprised to find 16-bit DLLs in this archive. The images are easy enough to extract, but the string tables less so (Visual 2005 gives me mojibake), and the order of strings in it is a bit weird, especially when I don't know how to access the string tables' resource IDs with my hex editor.

...I know what could help me: Does anyone have a link to the documentation that says which string ID is supposed to mean what?

You can just play them natively here with no issues.

For getting the strings out with a hex editor, it's good to note that the strings are packed in groups of 16, and the index of the block id is 1/16th of the string id.
No. 96197 ID: 05d1ef

I know they're packed in groups of 16, the part that confused me was that the last two "stripping" quotes (936 & 937) are apart from the others.
(plus the fact the string bundles are stored in reverse order)

But now that I got the list of string IDs and what they mean, all became clear.

Alrighty just got Clip. I'm still getting used to it, and the tablet is still fighting me to use it. So I'm going to be experimenting a little until I can get into a 'groove' I guess? Excpect some updates to look funky. Well funkier than usual.

Now that I'm done shopping, if only I could read what the text says...
No. 135468 ID: 26235b

No hot takes? Then I'll see if I can make anything of it.


...so what I think the text says is this:
- In the bottom left it says CORE
- In the upper center it says EXTRA DIMENSIONAL TUNNEL
- In the top right it says UNKNOWN REGION
- In the bottom right it says... no idea. It looks like 3 letters so maybe an abbreviation. Or maybe the word is covered by the character's figure.

If the above is correct, then it would mean that the three figures are looking at a core of something, and at the core lies a dimensional passage to an unknown place.

JPEG? That's going a bit too far :p

So in the memories here we see two figures. One seems to be extending the hand to the one that's, what looks like, operating some computers. And from the text, it looks like the guy sitting is named Hoefler. It might be an important name to remember... wait, that name...
> >>/questarch/890224 >Hoefler-Kurosawa corpuscles
Ah, the discoverer of "dust". And Kurosawa must be one of the other people that we've seen in these memories.

And now a word from today's sponsor, Raid: Shadow Legends! You too can be a legend in-*click*
Video games are a bad influence on some people, huh?

>You took everything ...! .... everybody! ... little fucking utopia?!
This seems to have happened a tiny bit later. The guy shouting at Hoefler seems to be upset about something he did. A research project turning into someone's personal utopia?

It's the sandiest day ever! It is the day where various quest characters hang out at the beach. Take some vacation time away from your monstrous labs, dreary dungeons, dystopian futures, and awkward romances. Instead enjoy some sun and energetic waters with other quest characters!

This year has a boardwalk set up for your entertainment and enjoyment! Set up your own booth, enjoy the sights, have an easy pre-made background so you can focus on the shenanigans. The possibilities are endless!

The boardwalk was built by the lovely Anon44 and you can get the file here:
You will most likely need Sketchup: free edition to utilize it properly, (does require a login.):

Discussion Thread for my first quest, Team Port Echo! I hope to really expand this universe with many adventures for our heroes.

Here I hope to show around some art, answer any questions you may have about these characters without spoiling anything, and figure out ways to improve the dice-roll system.

Some comments about HURON:

The good:
- the art is sexy
- the setting is great
- the character design is cool
- the writing is okay

The bad:
- the updates are inconsistent
- the story pacing is too slow
- the battle design is poor
- no information choices

There's too much micromanagement in the way the fighting system is designed. If even the tutorial battle takes 30+ updates, then I think that, realistically, the prospect of you ever finishing this quest is unlikely. I would suggest making the battles shorter and streamlining the updates so that each update processes multiple actions and includes multiple panels. You may need to sacrifice some of the art and writing quality for the update speed, but I think it would help with the story pacing and keeping the readers interested. I think a good balance would be if the fights took 30-50% of the total updates in the quest. Even if the whole point of this quest is the clothing damage, not everyone needs to end up completely naked in every battle. The "brace for impact" system, from my point of view, feels too random to be an interesting part of the quest - 4v4 equals 1 in 16 chance of correct guess, and since there's little to no information to go on, it's more or less of a dice roll. But even if we had good information, would we really want to prevent our characters from losing their clothes? :p
No. 135401 ID: 11f77a

Thank you for the comments! I will put them into consideration. I know I've been... hobbling along with this quest. Perhaps with all my current quests for that matter. I could spend a long time making excuses why the 'bad' is the way it is but...

Looking forward, after the current battle, I'll finish the chapter there. And my quests (when their current chapters are done) will go through an overhaul before the next thread.

I believe in Huron, and believe it can last a good while. The journey, however, is bumpy. I'm thankful to have people stick around this long.

I figured that was the point of the bracing for impact thing, in that you're supposed to choose the character you want to see naked the least.

I feel it's a good time to talk a bit on my current quests so far.

Now that the second chapter of Arthocob Date is done, I'll be sure to nudge it in the right direction of its namesake. Before chapter 3 though, I can focus on finishing the first thread for HURON and get The Vitruvian over with. And then have a clean slate again.

At this point, both remaining quests are seeing what works and what doesn't--and figuring out rules as they come along. So it's like... season one where it may have neat ideas but it'll hopefully get better next season. When their threads are finished I'm going to try to remain at one or two quests at a time--but the temptation to make Chupian Date Quest II or something new entirely is strong.

I'm figuring out ways to fix combat. Everyone has ACs but perhaps I made them a bit too high (because I have other modifiers like STR or DEX). So it's going to feel inconsistent in the middle of the current battle. I'm thinking of changing it to an attack roll vs. defense roll so things move faster. And I've been thinking ahead how to increase story elements with just a little combat.

It's a fun demo so far. It's a quest for me to figure out the best rules to make as I move along. I didn't warn anyone what those rules are on purpose, in fact. I wanted a natural reaction to the current situation to survive vs. knowing the game and how to exploit it or use some meta-gaming strategy. Will a full quest happen? Perhaps. It's a concept (readers vs. protagonist) I would love to delve deeper into. Seeing how I want to limit myself to 2 quests it may be a while.

At the same time I'm drawing the Team Port Echo graphic novel, finally. Picture related.

Thank you for being patient as well.

I found the last combat a lot easier to understand, apart from not remembering all of Rita's Traits. I actually really like your combat system a lot.
No. 135583 ID: 031458

Your combat system is neat and scalable. All you need to do to really make it shine is standardize the INFORMATION AVAILIBILITY.

We players should ALWAYS KNOW the HP, STATUS, RANGE, and TRAITS of DIRECTLY CONTROLLED characters at a glance.

ENEMIES should have ALWAYS IMPERFECT information. Our interactions with them should determine what we know of them. Lots of information can be given or withheld. HP, Traits, How many traits they have, how those traits work, which traits are on cool-down, what they are about to do, how their abilities synergize with other, ect. ect.

UNCONTROLLED NPC ALLIES are very much up to your judgment.

In effect, preparation and playing defensively gains us more information, but comes at the cost of dragging out a fight or finding ourselves in less than optimal situations.
Ambushing and playing aggressively can quickly end or "skip" fights entirely, but it leaves us vulnerable to taking dangerous assumptions that can lead to bad decisions.

You've created a system where battle is a fun balancing act between information and domination.

tl;dr: Keep battles, improve Info for PC, reduce info for enemies.
