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:

big fancy disthread because we've hit the point where we have multiple morbit quests both here AND on other sites, such as eagletime and omegaupdate.

what started as a passion project between myself and my friend como to create a universe snowballed into a huge deal with multiple projects and a proper team behind it. this thread is for talking about both the universe as a whole, and our current running quests- here, that'd be Maybequest and Tiny Cat People.

discuss away, and feel free to ask all the weird questions you want. we love this shit.

MAYBEQUEST has returned...rewritten!

i haven't been satisfied with maybequest for literal years, and decided a rewrite of a Lot of things was in order- i made a lot of mistakes as an early quest author and i'm much happier with the edit!

MQ has also been relocated to the Homebrew Deviants forums- with the rewrite and personal comfort, we decided that we'd rather move it now over waiting until part 1 was completed (which is fairly soon anyway). i know this is probably a disappointment to a lot of people, but the quest can still be read without a forum account. you Do need an account to suggest just so that we can ensure that suggestors are 18+, but it's a simple process that doesn't take too long.

thank you for bearing with me for so long, and for helping me get this quest started to begin with- i hope it goes to exciting places!

Hey guys I was thinking about what we should do for our next TCP ( if we get another one). The one's I'm thing we should do are, bastard, monster, slasher (they're usually masked), and antihero.

Now I'm not choosing them because of their abilities, not at all. I'm choosing them because it would be adorable for them to interact with our TCP.
What do you all think are next TCP should be?

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

Feel free to answer questions here and I will try to answer them as best as I can.

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

But as I had said to a friend of mine:

"If this quest had a thesis statement, it would be 'why not ask?'"

It is like we got this big-ass switchboard, but none of them are labeled and they are all interconnected. (switch one and it could make all the other switches do different things) Occasionally I like to try flipping some randomly to see if something neat happens! Apparently I found the 'copy ((Mimicry))his((/Mimicry)) voice' combo. ((Though some part of me feels like the power is somehow tied to me as a Fragment, If someone else could try I would appreciate it.))

Also what do you mean by 'here' you said most Beings can't be multiple places very good, but I think we are here and with our Vessel, is that normal? I don't feel we are very physically 'here' but we are physically with the Vessel, as you know it was a whole deal.
>>
No. 134136 ID: d63ea8

Alright… I think I understand.
Whatever caused
Your amnesia, be it a broken Promise or not, has also overwritten whatever basic instincts You had.

Though it seems like some of those instincts returned when
You became separated from Your Vessel.

I imagine this ‘mimicry’ would’ve been vital to
Your survival in the Beyond after You first formed.

I wouldn’t think that it is a new ability, but
You’ve been defying a lot of my previous expectations.



And if I were to guess what
You mean by ‘here’...

I am an Outer Being that is fully capable of existing in multiple places at once, physically or otherwise.

We can't fool Lovely and she doesn't want to talk anymore, which means all we can do is relay information to Errant.
...or maybe we can do something with our strange connection to Ashley? I don't get why we can see what she's doing but are unable to communicate or interact. How would we even make the attempt...? (it's not like we have a standard format for actions, and in the disthread everything seems to be directed at other Beings instead of the area around our body)
Wait, what about other Beings...
Can you send messages to Aldemire? I'm wondering if he would be willing and able to help. Relay this if so:
"A friend of ours is being pursued by Grey Gash, can you help us?"

...can we afford to buy secrecy about the mimickry? If not, I guess we'll just have to hope nobody asks about it. I presume we don't need to pay you to prevent you from immediately telling the URC about it, since I don't think you want the URC to know we're still alive (they would likely kill us)... I guess only Lovely and the darkest color are a concern. How much would it cost to keep it from them, specifically? Or just the darkest color?

Well I was hoping to wait on this one a little longer till I could more directly prove the potential threat, and then offer this deal as a show of peace, but now with us paying you on the table when I feel we should hold the leverage...

In exchange for a Promise from you not to knowingly reveal this capability, we can Promise not to knowingly attempt to use this 'Mimicry' to cause you to unintentionally break a Promise.

You are a clever Being, I am sure you realize the existential threat this ability could pose to you specifically. I would guess protection against a credible threat of assassination would have... rather high value to you. Enough that I could probably attach a number of additional demands to this Promise, but I am not. I do, however, request, (not demand) if it can be told, what the terms of your Promise(s) of privacy to the darkest color are.

Also when relaying messages you seem to talk in other's colors, how is that different from our 'Mimicry'?

Either way, discuss away about this wannabe Visual Novel.

Like I said in the thread, I do not agree with your interpretation that she was using threats to get head scratches. She directly prefaced that request with the suggestion that she could put in a good word.

In short, head scratches were a bribe for a political favor. Not extortion.
>>
No. 134123 ID: ba56e6

The coercion had nothing to do with the head scratches. She threatened to take action if we tried to scam or hurt her grandson. What about that seems remotely evil to you?

No. 134125 ID: d64d07

>>134117
But what would she have to gain by manipulating us? We have nothing she doesn't already have more reliable access to. It's not like she's gonna have us deliver unscrupulous packages. Nor is it likely that she'll coerce sexual favors out of us, as that would hurt Ztolt and is antithetical to her character.

However, I will grant that we'll need to be more assertive on the future, if we keep seeing Ztolt.
I'll also grant that Zalia is a terrifying, inhuman, semi-immortal space Kennedy who's peerlessness has surely been gnawing away at her sense of identity and moral fiber for generations the states of which are unknowable for the countless practiced faces learned over the years enclose here decaying heart in a shell born of necessity, the likes of which likely hasn't seen the light of day in over a century.

Or something like that.
In any case this is a person we should choose our battles with, and so far we've been presented no hill worth dieing on.
>>
No. 134139 ID: 6e6f32

>>134117
Like. I know this meta, but 2 Things.
First, Zalia is a returning character from the original boldly coming. Many of us already know she's pretty cool and are already disarmed around her. Take that as you may.

Second, Boldly Coming isn't Coxxwette, Enemy quest, or a Smik Dating quest. Your level of paranoia would be welcome in any of those, but BC has never in tone or narrative suggested that it's in any way like those quests. While Kaktus can write any story he wants, you seem to be expecting scenarios outside the apparent scope of the quest.

Also if Roland in D3 ever does get a battle horn like the one in the legend, it should summon a horde of demons to aid him.

Sorry it took me so long to see this! Thank you so much! In canon Im operating where trans identity is totally valid and an accepted part of society. I had actually considered a storyline that went into the mechanics of physically transitioning a bit, but dropped it in favor of helping miki find the missing fire ward. Essentially it boils down to using magic to change as much or as little as the person wants, but is done over a period of time and requires occasional check ups to refresh the magic and see if theyre comfortable with the progress. I had imagined it to be roughly comparable with modern methods of transitioning and that pretty much everyone in the culture knows at least someone whos trans.

Its something I thought about addressing more directly when talking about mikis childhood, but felt that Miki’s transness isnt really her story, its who she is. Her story is that she had a magical ability she couldnt control and her parents taught her a skill that helped her make friends. I wanted it to be clear that she was trans from a very young age and that the support she got let her grow into the talented and happy person she is

>>133840
Yeah, ive never really gone into it, but essentially magical contraception is a pretty common thing. its a simple charm that requires an occasional renewal and is easily removed if someone wants to get pregnant. While the main cast is obviously way more sexually active than the average citizen, the culture has a more relaxed view on casual sex than what we’re familiar with: in part because unwanted pregnancy and venereal disease is so rare.

For, as one could guess, discussing Fen Quest.

Some of you may know that Fen Quest was an intermission for Chee Quest. This may be a reboot, but other than that, it will have nothing to do with Cheelop. It will not even be part of the same universe, so the rules of cheeverse (what rules there were) will not apply.

To elaborate this, which requires heavy CheeQuest spoilers, Cheequest steamrolled into Fenquest near its ending, crushing any sort of proper ending. It was most likely my biggest mistake questing, and did play into my deciding to reboot it. Secondly, the reason why it doesn't take place in cheeverse is a matter of constraints. At the end of Cheequest, her world was effectively rebooted, promised by the gods to have it play out approximately the same, with the promise of Fen and Lily living happily ever after and so on. I'd rather not have that promise, among other things people could safely make assumptions about. Nor do I want to just redo it as-is while still in the chaos god's dream, if just because the looming threat of Chee inevitably crashing into Fen's life isn't something I want even if it occurred after the end.

I would much rather start on a clean slate.

Well, I kindof understand why they're doing it. From their perspective, they're worse than underdogs, they are persecuted and mistreated. If the necromancer uprising is successful it creates a whole new society for them to live in, and the necromancers have likely promised them they will be treated well.

It's great seeing you make a return, teegs. And as previously said, that title card is excellent!

I hope this isn't 'too putting on the spot', but I'm curious what projected lengths you have in mind for your current quests. While Quests are akin to Webcomics in that they run for very extended periods of time, you've got a lot on your plate - and I find it difficult to imagine that all of them are as in-depth and lengthy as Dead Dust, (or the Arzfayz-verse, once that eventually gets the reboot). Would it be fine if you gave us your thoughts on what the relative ratios of story length you imagined for your quests are? I'd ask for time estimates but life is busy, and there's no real guarantees on things getting done when you want them to.

Hmm, let's see:

Hard to say anything more definite than "long"
>Flora
3 threads, maybe 4 tops
>Null and Void
It's a bit open ended so I'm not completely sure, but most likely shorter than Dead Dust
>Folly of the Temptress
Probably about the same as Null and Void
>eventual Arzfayz reboot
This could change, but right now I think I'd probably shoot for about 5 threads.

Thanks for the detailed answer - I'm actually a bit surprised by some of these. I was expecting Flora to be longer, but 3 threads is quite interesting. Still, either way, it's good that you've got this all planned out. Best of luck to you - I'll certainly be watching and seeing things play out.

>So the question has been asked about boat-o-cross and flappy bird but would any of you play getting over it and how well would you do.
Tried it. Fuckin’ hate it. Took me 12 goddamn hours. The worst part is the constant droning by that asshole. I’d have turned the sound off but that’d mean he won.

>Who's the strongest person from another quest you think you could beat? Doesn't have to be the strongest in total, but whomever pops into your head when you think about it.
I could fuck up Victor, that weasel guy. Nine times out of ten, easy.

>what do you look for in an ideal mate?
I dunno, fat tits I guess.

>Okay, to any random quest character: what three things would you bring if you were stranded on a deserted island?
The fucks an island? Wait a second…

Alright, it’s just like, land in the middle of a big river.

First a monger lady to keep me and the rest alive with all that survival knowledge they’re supposed to have, a tat chick to figure out how to build shelter and shit, and a lanky to work for the tat so her twiggy arms don’t snap trying to lift a leaf. I can hunt and shit so we can probably survive indefinitely, assuming there’s like… shit on it that can keep us alive. If not, trade the lanky for another monger with fat tits.

>What myths do you know? Do you believe in any of them?
If I know it’s true it ain’t a myth, is it? Whatever.

I like the story my dad sings about Shaia shaping the earth for the slissas. He tells it all eloquent, but basically, way back when the world was in turmoil Shaia saw her creatures were frightened by the chaos that was had become their lives. So she took us, gave us our claws and her knowledge of her most precious creation, the land. She cracked it open and deposited us inside, and then closed it to keep us safe while the surface was changing. And that's why slissas live underground.

I mean, we dug back to the surface eventually, yeah, but pretty much every slissa agrees that was a huge fucking mistake because everyone up there suuuuuuuucks.

>Stickler downtime is... different from what I imagined.
ITQ stuff isn’t canon, so he can do shit like play video games or read Coxwette and Team Port Echo and really rudely interrupt me during my ITQ time. It lets us answer more questions.

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.

With the library done, I went and found all the previous policies we were offered but didn't take.

Turn 1
1) Dismantle Royal Infrastructure: All money generating improvements increase gains by 10

2) Defense Force: +1 Standing armies

Turn 8
1) Bonded Auxiliaries: Unlocks slave auxiliaries. New Auxiliaries are unlocked based on foreign lands raided and what races are captured.

2) Reformed Servitude: Output from assigned slaves is now 4 instead of 2

Turn 11
1) River Clan Sponsorship: Unlocks Rezmodla Clan House, giving your envoys experts in Rezmodla language and politics. Allows the trade of resources and slaves with friendly families.

The current limit is at 3. Owning a province (I mean taking control of the whole province, not just the nodes) increases it by 1, reforms increase it by 1. Further reforms and concessions by the patron family increase the army size

I feel that right in the middle of an update, 400+ updates after beginning the quest, is the most ideal timing for starting a discussion thread.

Seriously though it seems like I've been hemorrhaging readers lately. Which is something I'd really like to stop. I want to continue and eventually finish this quest but at a certain point that becomes impossible if there's nobody to actually read the goddamn thing. So, I really need some feedback. What am I doing right, what am I fucking up, what are things that I can do to not fuck up in the future? I can answer questions too if you have any.

I checked back here out of curiosity and it seems like someone bumped this thread. I don't know if anyone is still curious, but if you are, here's a status update.

The tech stuff went more or less according to schedule. I didn't finish what I intended to do, but I was progressing along at a good pace and I didn't hit a road block or anything. Still, it's clearly a losing proposition to try and make environments in CGI, since it takes too much time to prepare which nullifies any time savings down the road- I think it would be a smarter idea to switch the workflow and instead prepare the characters in advance and render them, while drawing the environments myself.

Anyway, problems with the tech stuff aren't why I haven't been updating the quest. I'm a very private person and I don't want to get into personal details but this has been an extremely difficult year for me, beginning from around February and going straight through to now. In all honesty the difficult circumstances have been going on for longer then that, although it progressed to a worse stage in February. I tried to write it off as time consuming 'hobbies' in one of the first posts in this thread. I'm not entirely sure why I did that except that I really don't want to depress people or involve them in my personal life... although it has the unintentional effect of making me look like a lazy, good for nothing asshole, instead of a stressed out asshole that's in a bad place. Anyway, that was responsible for a lot of the slow down last year, which progressed into a total stoppage this year.

I'm sorry for not coming back on here to give an update until now. I am still interested in continuing this, although it won't be for awhile yet. I still need to take care of a few things more before I can settle back into updating this. I think I'll also have to change my plans a little for the ques

Sorry to hear you've been going through a rough patch lately and hope it get's better soon. Just remember though that you should worry about yourself first and if life is kicking you in the groin don't feel bad for taking time to try and let things sort themselves out. While I wouldn't mind seeing this quest come back the idea of a quest is to be fun, for both YOU and the reader. So don't feel the need to force yourself to do something if you're not enjoying it.

Again though, glad to hear that you're alright even if things haven't been going to smoothly and hope that it clears up soon. The 3D looks great.

Im going to make a pretty huge number of changes to the mechanics after this first floor. I'll produce a manual for the rules and mechanics at some point before starting the second floor, and will change it as needed, announcing changes ahead of time, of course. The biggest change will be in statistics. Characters will have more health and armor will work differently. Movement will likely be increased as well. Im not sure just yet.

Post your amazing fanarts for your favorite quests here! The old thread has become filled with too much art, so it's time to start again. Commissions of quest characters you bought are cool to post. Authors can also post extra images of their quest characters here (you can be a fan of your own quest!) Cool kids label their fanart with character and quest names.

Regarding the AP-reactive concept I put in the thread proper, it's only more complex mechanically in the initial setup of acquiring materials and the means to get them into the right shape. Once things are in place it's just a matter of production and assembly. Might be a somewhat longer-term goal to do so, I'll grant, since at the very least it would require premade jackets and tips, plus a way to smelt the core metals and cast the alloy to size. And then, of course, measuring out propellant charges and seating the rounds into their casings. But that's something that could be done in downtime conditions instead of taxing Argine's poor brain with active precision field manipulations in the middle of combat. And depending on availability, the process could be streamlined through more advanced automated production facilities.
