I haven't been in this community for ages (POSSIBLY A DECADE, OH NO) but tgchan is what inspired me to learn how to draw.

Did you run a quest before?

Make a quest, and abandon it after the OP.
Make a quest, and railroad the entire thread.
Make a quest, and punish the protagonist for suggestions that don't fit your idea of what should happen.

Make a quest, and only plan one path for the plot out; wing anything that diverges from it.
Make a quest, and wing the entire thing.
Make a quest, and write up three pages of personality and history for every named character.
Make a quest, with a plot outline written out for at least 9 threads.

Dare to be stupid; make a quest at all.

Someone's probably said it before, but honestly, it's very similar to running a tabletop game, like D&D, except everyone's controlling the same character. So really, the secret is remembering that the random elements in the game are the fact you've got potentially dozens of people coming up with things to do.

Pick what works, roll with the rest. And remember: you can always give characters agency. If people aren't playing along or just being butts, the character can point that out. If anything, it's a good way to handle it:

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:

"Then I should get within ogling distance of some of them. Maybe that horde of smooth ones with the big boobs would be a good place to start."

Keimi balls up her fists and begins to protest.

"You're not seriously going to ditch me to chase some jiggly aliens, are you?"

Alex pats Keimi on the head reassuringly.

"It's a man's dream, Kei. Maybe you'll understand when you're older."

"Don't patronize me, you dingus! I'm four months older than you! But you can't leave me alone. The last time I came to one of these things, some tiny aliens stole my clothes and an old guy started hitting on me."

"Wow. You're worried about me, but it sounds like you're the one running off to have all the real fun."

A towering warrior casts a shadow over the boardwalk, a small, holidaying figure sitting on her shoulder.
The larger one laughs.
"Ha ha ha! All of these strange prizes shall be mine! Those chumps running the games stalls always underestimate me!"

"Because you have no social tact and a demeanor that makes you seem more like a dumb animal than a person?"

"Naw. It's because I don't have any eyes! Ha ha ha!"

The smaller one nibbles on the end of an icy treat, staring out towards the flaming ball of radiation and death in the sky behind the safety of her polarised tri-lenses. The image of her crossing a desert on foot with information that could save a nation runs through her head, before being pushed aside by the sight of another whimsical carnival game.

Yes, ring toss. An activity reminiscent of throwing knives or a grenade, yet with curious parameters that add a layer of appealing arbitrary difficulty. An appropriate challenge, an appropriate conquest to add to their path of carnival carnage!

"Astrolysis. I request that we annihilate the ring toss challenge next."

"Sure, sure, Lil' Nickel! But after that, I'm going over to where that new DJ's playing. The vibrations of good music make me want to fight all the harder!"

"That is acceptable."

And so, the destructive duo continue to carve a path of scorched earth and crying carnival-owners in their wake. When will these two be stopped?

I will, without a doubt, continue to focus on the investigation as you suggest. I doubt either of my colleagues were going to stop with that either. But I want to highlight something that you mentioned that I think even you fail to realize, and it's why no matter what you do with Ana from this point on, it is still going to be a bad deal for us, regardless of intentions and why I cannot accept it as a good outcome by this point.

You claim that you still intend to use Ana albeit in a different form, fair. But as you have shown through your story telling she is still quite possibly doomed. What I suspect this means is she will return as a new Essence of Life having been tortured enough to break her mind enough that it will probably cripple her in spirit and break her will to that of Happy's design. Or the form you intend to bring her back in is so broken that there is little to no hope of restoring her back to her body. You showed that the form of the Voices of Ana have will translate over to the body. So regardless, I cannot be as satisfied or left with much hope for whatever ending you chose to give. The only real way I can see of stopping this is to continue with the investigation to stop Happy. But by the time we get to it, it might be too late. The sucky thing is we can't get through this quick enough to really change that outcome.

What ticks me off about all of this is I tried to warn my co-players that what we were doing was essentially handing her off to Happy, and wouldn't you know it, I was right. With all do respect to them and you, I am tired of feeling like the smartest man in the room, and I say that with no amount of pride. You say is that "Our actions have consequences." That would make sense if we understood what the consequences of ou

The noblest of all the knights the throughout the land.

Renowned throughout of all the fog for battles you have won.
In Council hear you Lorence who makes plea to go to war, To fight the rebel Ana who now fights her rightful lords

I hope you are all enjoying the quest thus far, and I'm very excited to be running it.

Unfortunately, due to the quest being centered around exploration and discovery, I can't afford to reveal absolutely everything.

I'm wanting a "project" to do, so I'm drawing a list of naked chicks and putting them into a size chart like Lucid did for his Journey species.

I'd like to include all the commonly used races, as well as races used in running or completed quests. Nothing from abandoned quests though, that's their punishment.

What I need:
A picture of your race, how tall they are on average, and what the female looks like nekkid. I'll add them to the chart and post it when I get a few of them done. These should be generic examples of the average individual, not specific characters.

What I've got so far: Mok, Cutebold, Dorf, Goblin, Lohrke, Indahl, Cremate.

We are starting with the shorter ones and working out way up. Post anyone that's 5' (~1.5m) and under first; once I get all those done we'll move on to average size.

'Sup readers?

So, Enclosed Curtains might be a little delayed at the moment due to some electrical problems where I live. As I was working on the final panel for the next update, the power at my place started flickering and then went out in certain parts of my home (mainly the electrical power of the living room, near the front door, and part of the kitchen. My bedroom and bathroom was still working). After the power came back and doing some tests, I believe that it was my desktop computer that might have been drawing too much power and causing outages in certain parts of my home whenever I am using it after a while.

Right now, I'm leaving my computer and other electronics unplugged for the night and will test to see if it works again tomorrow morning. Until then, I'm using my older laptop computer for the time being instead of my desktop computer to get this message out. What I might need to do if unplugging my computer doesn't work is probably redecorate my place and move my computer somewhere else. But worst case scenario, I might need to get an electrician which might take some time.

I apologize for the technical difficulties and thank you for your patience.

A couple more questions: If armour is broken, can it be healed? If armour is broken and health is nearly full, can healing heal both some armour and some health (like damage can affect both armour and health)? Does health always need to be healed before armour, or is there a choice?
No. 133576 ID: b1b4f3

"healing does work on armor."
Or do you mean, once it goes down to 0?
No. 133577 ID: f8fa51

>when a character has their armor reduced to 0 their armor breaks
Yes, by broken I meant 0 armour.
No. 133578 ID: b5ac3f

armor is always reduced first and healed last. think of a character's armor as their first line of defense. when its worn down they become more vulnerable to attacks.
No. 133579 ID: 4286b4

Being able to heal armor feels a bit... illogical, since armor is something that's normally repaired, not healed. But I understand what you were going for. Some sort of a buffer.

I think it would've been better if that stat was represented in a different way.
For instance, instead of having 4 Health and 3 Armor, the character would have 7 Health and have an Endurance stat of 3.
Or, you could simplify things and say that once a character's health is below half, the special attacks can take place. In other words, a character has 7 Health, but when their Health is below 4, which is half of 7 rounded up, they have to roll the lewd save.

Aw but you do sex scenes so well.
Oh well at least there's still Arzfayz.

If Arzfayz doesn't get the D I will be a very sad Asshat.
No. 133344 ID: 3994a2

I'd say it applies on a quest-by-quest basis, but going forward in general I'm going to put more thought into whether lewd content (and what degree of lewd content) belongs in a given quest. In a quest like Arzfayz, which is explicitly meant to be lewd from the outset, I think extended sex scenes are fine. For other quests, such as Flora and Null and Void, I'll probably follow the same standard I set in >>133333 -- lewd content may occur, but it will be brief and limited unless there is some clear justification for drawing it out.

That being said, I think a big part of why I chose to include sex scenes in the first place was temptation on my part. It's common for me to feel some desire to lewd the fuck out of characters I've created, and so there's a fairly significant temptation to let that bleed into my quests. In the future I'm going to try to channel that temptation into art outside of the quest proper, which is really what I should've done all along.

>Aw but you do sex scenes so well.
Thank you, but unfortunately I need to follow my gut feeling on this one, if only because I get discouraged when I receive negative feedback that seems to confirm that gut feeling was right.
No. 133346 ID: 4854ef

Aw man I missed that there was a vote in the first place.
No. 133572 ID: db51d2

my take on this: write opportunities that tie sex into the story and character dynamics more. For example, the scene with us fucking the spooky brain ghost adds a lot to the dynamism of that scene. the sex with our boyfriend helps sell some chemistry between the characters.

however, some of the tiddy stuff with roz felt excessive, possibly even a bit pushy on her part, which I don't think you intended.

the sex in the quest works best when it's purposeful, so lets lean into that.
No. 133573 ID: e51896

I'm thinking of possible future planning here, but I have a feeling that after Siobhan and Mike is done, Mike might be open to talk about what was bothering him earlier and his problem client.

That said, I feel it will be a very bad idea at that point to have him talk about work and what was bothering him after they're finished. The reason being is that we know that we woke up the llama with that loud noise, and he is probably curious about what Siobhan and Mike is up to and could be listening in with his ear against the wall, especially considering their bed is resting against the wall that is connected to the llama's room. If after sex Mike is willing to talk, we need to tell him he doesn't have to worry about talking about work, because otherwise he could reveal some confidential secrets that the llama could get his hands on, especially since we don't know if he could be a spy or not. I have a feeling that he has a huge role as to how Siobhan got to losing her memory, and we should try to be careful to make it so that it wasn't because of Mike unintentionally revealing secrets at work to the person on the other side of the wall.

I think alice would get a slight benefit for doing something normal and human-like. Even if she can probably increase muscle density with a thought.

...Have we really done much as far as infusing rooms with runes, or is that more of an automatic part of room design? We might want to look into that, maybe add something to the hub room and the comfy pit if they don't have any runes.

Audit Quest Chapter 10 has arrived.

Dusting of ye olde Discuss thread for reasons.

Anyway, the reason for the sudden loss of info OOC is that Larro's HDD died. So lost notes. At least we have some of the records, between here and the stats page of the wiki.

So I just got done reading through all of AsteroidQuest and the last thread appears to be in the grave yard. Used CTRL+F to search this thread for mentions of that to see what is up and didn't get anything, but I'm probably just bad at it. What's going on with that? Is the quest dead or was just that thread thrown out cause Lago didn't like where it was going? Sorry if this has already been answered.
No. 131962 ID: 1d7c77

Don't panic about things being in the graveyard, they just go there automatically when they haven't been updated in a certain period of time. Quests get brought back from there into activity again all the time. Plenty of Lago quest threads have been there and back before.

Please let me know what you think about this quest of mine - feedback is greatly appreciated!

I will also answer meta questions that cannot be answered in-universe, so feel free to ask if there's something on your mind. Questions that can be answered in-universe will be politely declined, to prevent spoilers.

Hey folks, I'd like to ask for your feedback on the current stealth section - which I will most likely be concluding in the next update.

Perhaps it's a bit transparent of me to talk about it, but this quest is very much a means for me to improve in all aspects, in both art and writing/pacing. Though, I would like to know what the general preference is for how I handle the 'hostile territory exploration' aspect in future. While the current section is only four, five update's worth, I am unsure if this is 'too quick' or even too slow pacing-wise for everyone's tastes, so I would like to know your thoughts on that. Things are intentionally a bit quicker due to this being the prelude thread building up to the main threads, but it is still an important opportunity for me to iron out any potential issues before later.

Compared to other quests like Unnatural Selection, I don't believe I'm updating fast enough to really capitalise on the 'game-like' feeling with each action to maintain a decent pace in such a section. To remedy this, I could simply change it to be *just* the 'map', having actual pictures to highlight specific moments or new areas. If I were to go with this method, I would probably improve the visual quality of the UI elements to compensate. Alternatively, I could stick with the current style, but try to incorporate more 'moves' into it. I'm not as sure about this one, but hearing your preferences and suggestions would help me determine a solution.

This feedback will primarily be applied to the sector exploration - I'll ask about system feedback in future as necessary, so that I can craft a system that's mutually satisfying for both me and the readers/players. Thanks for participating in the quest so far, everyone!
No. 133435 ID: b1b4f3

Sticking to just the map would definitely solidify it as a game-like section.
I feel like this encounter went a bit slow. The protag stood there and waited for two full updates, which was too long without an action. "waiting" should produce a faster update with less text IMO.
No. 133436 ID: dea6dc

Thanks for the feedback!

It can be pretty hard to gauge the speed of encounters when writing quests, since updates can take a variable time to happen. Sorta like playing chess over mail. I'll keep the suggestion to make 'wait' updates simply a position update in mind - that'll speed some of the busywork up.
No. 133562 ID: 894f15

Hello again folks! Probably should have posted this earlier, but Last Trace's normal updates are temporarily suspended as I work on panels for the upcoming beach day. In addition to that, due to real life resuming, my update speeds will take a bit of a hit, but I'll still try to continue updating as usual. Thank you for your patience, everyone! I'm glad I have a good readership behind me.
No. 133564 ID: 9d9214

good luck. See ya on beach day.

I guess this needs a proper thread for this, as it’s not in any of the other canon things I’ve done?
Either way, discuss away about this wannabe Visual Novel.

>You know it's kinda amazing how well your art style goes well with the Visual Novel type.
My style consist of drawing the upper body of people and pasting them on static backgrounds… which is exactly what visual novels consist of. Who’d knew they would fit so well together.

I like the rat, he's cute. I think people got the wrong first impression of him.
I also wonder how much his freakout was motivated by people saying he was too different from the original protagonist...
No. 133542 ID: 864e49

While a part of me preferred a human protagonist I'm okay with animal people as a sort of human stand in, like they aren't technically from Earth but everything (culture, history, species) is basically the same.

I am glad KaKtus is showing the character acting more in line with the idea that they came to an alien world to escape a shitty life where they didn't fit in.
No. 133543 ID: 62e4df

Yeah, I'm a fan of the new character. I'm also of the understanding that he won't be the *only* character, so we're going to be getting a diverse cast, and that's only interesting if they're all different.

Alright so it's been voted back in https://www.strawpoll.me/18101240
that the next sidequest will be a civquest. First one I'm actually running, and the system I got isn't totally done, so I'm gonna shoot some questions about it here. If you wanna answer or chip in your own feedback, feel free.

Also I'm posting whatever I sketch since I'm sick atm, and more of my time is spent doodling on whatever scrap of paper I got and less on the tablet. So here goes.

So, what’s the plan in Guk’s quest tight now? We kill all the people in the fort?
No. 133509 ID: df76b1

Find 3-4 Gamin, take their stuff, which we use as bait when we ambush a bandit patrol. Bandits freak, follow the trail and attack the Gamin. Assuming heavy casaulties on both sides, another sect of ghost skins gets involved, and attacks whoever's weakest. Then the tribe deals with whoever's left.

I might be missing something, but it's a Gormoamhi plan, which means room for improvisation.

To make relevant subjects easier to find instead of being buried under the minutia of Pdn[T]tO.

https://tgchan.org/wiki/Fluorine_Quest which was actually about playing as a calcified raksha, but dang did I do a bad job making that clear. Not that most people would know what it was even if I did, since it's derived from an obscure section of the errata to what's arguably the whole Ex2e line's most editorially mangled and ungameable volume. The errata which replaced almost entire chapters, and which is so massive I can't even post it all here as a PDF, 'cause it's above the max file size.

Maybe I like this stuff so much because my reach exceeds my grasp so much out of character?

Anyway, the new one, where you can finally play as actual exalts: https://tgchan.org/kusaba/quest/res/865044.html

Minor addendum: Viatrix Senta wears a pair of short, steel toed heavy duty black work boots, and they don't look like they're made entirely from leather, or made by any ordinary shoemaker at all, given their unusual make and symmetry.
No. 133443 ID: f57349

You seem to have mysteriously dropped two dots in Occult while adding one in Survival, relative to the previous character sheet draft. Craft (Lightning) specialty in "repair" seems too broad - could change that to "skyships," or swap it out entirely for initiate-level Art of Elemental Air, which (per houserules) also encompasses weather-working.
No. 133454 ID: 4424d1

That was probably a mistake in copying over an earlier sheet. I suppose that I could always shift that specialty dot into Thaumaturgy, but I'll look up weather-working anyway.
