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.

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.

Did some fanart of Iraphena from CATALYST. I had a specific image in mind, and wrote a short story to lead up to it. Hope you enjoy, go read CATALYST if you haven't already.

---

After a long negotiation, Bobby promised you a random artifact in exchange for just one crate of imported slushee syrup. You had no idea what flavor it was, but the sickly black color made you not want to ask. Your Demon Eye Amulet wasn't reacting to it, and that was all you could ask for. (DEA - The sooner it's gone, the better. Trust me)

Once Slurps is gone, you give the mirror he'd handed you a closer look. Your amulet immediately gives you a breakdown on it.

MIRROR SPY - A round hand mirror with a wooden handle. To use, the person holding its handle must say the name of a person they can clearly imagine, while staring into the reflection. As they focus on the glass, they will be shown the person named through the lens of the clearest available reflection, if any are available. This could be another mirror, a metal doorknob, or even another person's eyes. This will only be visible to whoever is holding the mirror. You will be visible in the surface the mirror draws its view from, but only to your target.

You: Huh. That's kind of neat, maybe I should try it out. But on who...?

You decide to check on Miss Iraphena. She's less likely to notice you, since you're a blank spot on her Passive Precognition. Passively knowing what will happen around her means she probably hasn't spent much time practicing her PERCEPTION.

Maybe you'd catch her moving some of her artifacts, and get a better read on what all she has? It would be good to know in advance.

Picturing the thicc elf as best you can, you stare into the mirror.

You: Leshanna Iraphena...

The glass begins to cloud, blocking the normal reflection. You lean in closely in anticipation...

The cloudy image swirls, before clearing slightly. The view is still a bit blurry, but through it you can clearly see a figure.

A flurry of emotions fills your head, as you spy upon Miss. Iraphena in the shower. An equal measure of guilt and pleasure go to war in your mind.

You decide then and there to be much more careful about your usage of this artifact in the future.

...You set the mirror down a few minutes later.

This is a very interesting question. I'm not the author but I can't help thinking about it.

Given what has been said of the spell I think construct Lily's fighting skill would be based on Fen's but filtered by his perception of the late lord Rasyan, Fen's only example of a noble fighting (which would shape his expectation of how a noble fights).
Since Fen has seen Rasyan fight for a couple minutes at best, she wouldn't actually fight like him, but it's possible to Fen's eyes it would be undistinguishable.

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:

Should we discuss our attack plan for the meat demon because that's kind of important.
One very important thing I wish to note is that we should not focus on physically attacking it at all. It's kind of an embodiment of the hunt and rage so I feel a physical fight would be in it's favor.
Maybe we can do something to attack it from a distance or perhaps use evoke on it in some way, either way we really need to prepare ourselves.

'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.

I just realized this didn't have a discussion thread, and it probably needs one given that it has a 3-year hiatus in the middle of it. Recapping: you are Mike, an astronaut on Mars, stranded and faced with circumstances that are likely to result in your death by starvation. A woman with no spacesuit knocks on your airlock door, identifies herself as "Ira", flies in, and brings you soup. Quickly ascertaining that you are a crazy person who hears voices, Ira offers an exchange: a free ride back to earth for a brain scan. Unfortunately, she doesn't seem too keen on answering many questions about herself, except to say that she is a human, but that the body in front of you is a remote-controlled robot. Eventually you come to an agreement, and hop in her pimped-out space winnebago for a 4-day interplanetary trip. She eventually reveals that she worries you will be swept away in a coverup, as nobody on Earth seems to know who she is anymore.

There's obviously more to it than that, but that should get you up to speed on where we sit as of this writing.

I want to make sure what's going on here is understood. All the externally-verifiable events depicted in the first thread happened as you saw. The actions Mike took actually happened. All the non-verifiable stuff like internal dialogue did not necessarily actually happen as depicted. That's just Ira's brain subconsciously building a retroactive narrative around the idea that you are the same voices Mike was hearing.

For example, here Mike and Ira have a conversation about how altered states of mind, like dreams, can sometimes pull out memories you had forgotten:
>>/questarch/881877
He tells her about the interrogation dream, but not the hurricane one. Later, when he springs the information about the hurricane that wiped out North Sentinel Island, he doesn't bring up the hurricane dreams at all.
>>/questarch/1008931
That's because the Hurricane dreams didn't necessarily actually happen. They're just Ira trying to subconsciously justify why he didn't bring it up until later by tying it in to their earlier dream conversation.

The things you did in the first thread did matter, because they led Mike to take the actions he took. It's just that, in the context of the narrative, they're not things you guys specifically did. Mike was hallucinating, and the voices he heard did not necessarily say exactly the things you said. But, whatever was going on in his head was similar enough to produce an outcome that looked the same from the outside. If you had suggested other things, Ira would currently be unconsciously justifying a different set of actions with a dif

Hello everyone. This may sound a little strange, but please bear with me. To get straight to the point, for a long time, I've wanted to make a long, detailed video about questing, and I need your help with information. I cannot make this video any time soon, due to uni taking up most of my time, but it is a plan I have currently. I have several questions about quests and the websites regarding them that I would like to have answered, and since I wasn't around until quite late, it's difficult to find answers for many things. Questing and the unique method of story telling and on-the-fly artwork that accompany of it are something that I find greatly interesting, and the fact that there is so little documentation on it (practically no videos at all, with only a few wiki pages describing the basics of what it is) is something I feel is a huge shame. Despite me being somewhat of a newb to the whole thing, I believe I could make a decent video detailing a summary of what questing is and its history, its online influence over the years, and information on some of the more historically significant quests. But again, I need your help. I would have made this thread later on, but I have started to worry that with each month I don't, more of the people who have been here for a long time may leave, and it'll be harder to get answers.

To give a bit of backstory on myself, I am not deep into questing myself, largely because I missed it in its heyday. About 5 or so years ago way honestly the first time I actually read a Quest. Rubyquest. I actually learned about Weaver through his other artwork, learned about Rubyquest from his website, and then learned about quests through Rubyquest, though I haven't been active over these few years (again, study and stuff). I've read pretty much everything from Weaver as well as Reaver, as well as a few of the shorter random stories here and there. I'm also working my way through a few of the &

Though it might have been a later thread that triggered the ban that created QQ, you’d have to double check.

At the time the QM was running other more prominent quests like

FWIW, that was me. :D

By the same token, I might be "vetean" but I'm also EXTREMELY out of the game. (Even though I technically finished a quest a week ago :V )

I wouldn't trust myself as a source very far beyond what I wrote in the essay. One thing that pushed me to write that essay was a desire to write down what I knew before I forgot it. I haven't really been keeping up with questing since 2014.

I'm not sure if MSPFA died when I made the original chart, but it should definitely reflect it now.

Actually, remind me, what year did it die?


By the way, something that was mentioned in the replies to that essay was how Spacebattles had text-based proto-quests which actually predated Problem Sleuth, though they really failed to gain any traction. However, it might be worth mentioning since SB later turned into a huge text-questing site via cross-pollination from /tg/.
(Its "Roleplaying, Quests, & Story Debates" subforum has 8 million posts(!) However, only a portion of those are actual quests, because the forum owners hate quests and won't give them a subforum for some reason.

Seriously, it's nuts how big the community exploded despite actively hostile administration that keeps shoving it in corners.)

The MSPA forum, which contained the Forum Adventure board, went down at the end of March 2016. However, the MSPFA site which was a seperate place that had the purpose of mirroring forum adventures, saw a huge increase in adventures being started there, even though there wasnt a way to send commands there. What started happening a lot was people hosted adventures there and used a discord server or the tumblr ask function or something else to get commands (theres a comment feature thats been added since then though). The Omegaupdate forum was also made as a stand-in when the MSPA forum died and it has a Forum Adventure board, but it sees way less use than MSPFA.
So basically, MSPA-inspired quests didn't exactly die when the MSPA forum closed, they just went through a big change. A lot of the older users went to Eagle Time or never returned afterwards, and I would consider Eagle Time distinct from MSPA stuff at this point.

I finally found the time to read your history "quest".
Thanks for your research effort ten11, this was very informative.

If there's one criticism I'd have, it's that seeing the graphs of daily created adventures, I was more curious about daily *updated* adventures (or "active" adventures, i.e. recently updated ones)

Since I'm running two Quests I thought, hey, time to make a new QUESTDIS.
For those of you not in the know, I’m EDMANGO, and I’m running CATALYST and SHARDS.

You can read up on my Quests Here
https://questden.org/wiki/EDMANGO

Feel free to theorize and talk about em. I’ll also answer any questions I see here that aren’t too spoilery like on the last thread.

Did some fanart of Iraphena from CATALYST. I had a specific image in mind, and wrote a short story to lead up to it. Ed suggested I repost it here, so here ya go.

---

After a long negotiation, Bobby promised you a random artifact in exchange for just one crate of imported slushee syrup. You had no idea what flavor it was, but the sickly black color made you not want to ask. Your Demon Eye Amulet wasn't reacting to it, and that was all you could ask for. (DEA - The sooner it's gone, the better. Trust me)

Once Slurps is gone, you give the mirror he'd handed you a closer look. Your amulet immediately gives you a breakdown on it.

MIRROR SPY - A round hand mirror with a wooden handle. To use, the person holding its handle must say the name of a person they can clearly imagine, while staring into the reflection. As they focus on the glass, they will be shown the person named through the lens of the clearest available reflection, if any are available. This could be another mirror, a metal doorknob, or even another person's eyes. This will only be visible to whoever is holding the mirror. You will be visible in the surface the mirror draws its view from, but only to your target.

You: Huh. That's kind of neat, maybe I should try it out. But on who...?

You decide to check on Miss Iraphena. She's less likely to notice you, since you're a blank spot on her Passive Precognition. Passively knowing what will happen around her means she probably hasn't spent much time practicing her PERCEPTION.

Maybe you'd catch her moving some of her artifacts, and get a better read on what all she has? It would be good to know in advance.

Picturing the thicc elf as best you can, you stare into the mirror.

You: Leshanna Iraphena...

The glass begins to cloud, blocking the normal reflection. You lean in closely in anticipation...

The cloudy image swirls, before clearing slightly. The view is still a bit blurry, but through it you can clearly see a figure.

...

A flurry of emotions fills your head, as you spy upon Miss. Iraphena in the shower. An equal measure of guilt and pleasure go to war in your mind.

You decide then and there to be much more careful about your usage of this artifact in the future.

...

...You set the mirror down a few minutes later.

That comment about scripting pens looking like tattoo needles, and people having both inherent colors, and producing mana, makes me wonder, could you runescript a tattoo onto someone?
What do you think that would do?

Get an absorption rune on your body, and become a mana vacuum. That, or have all the mana in your body drained to support any other runes you've tattooed on yourself. Either way, wouldn't recommend.

No, it just kind of happened that way, lol.

Serah was intended to be flexible and fill any role with enough prep time. Landi was always intended as a buff bot, with summons as her heavy hitters. Dotti was always going to be a glass cannon.

Rae and Jek were added via suggestions, so they kind of grew organically.

It’s a brand new Beach Day, the sandiest day ever! What better way to celebrate than by partying till dawn? All quest characters are welcome to grab a drink, watch the sun set, roast some s’mores, and dance the night away!

But beware, the Beach Police have night vision goggles!

Many thanks to Doomsby and Edmango for the title card!

Lilly had come across two mysterious weird looking totem poles, both partially buried under the sand, and one of them tipped over with a pole in one of the mouths.

Ignoring a stray large burning wild crab running off, The detector alerted Lilly of something under the sand where a tipped over pole is partially buried next to the two totem poles. after much digging around the end of the pole, Lilly has dug up some kind of crown made of coconuts. https://questden.org/kusaba/questdis/res/124701.html#124766

It's a bit rotten, moldy, cracked, and a couple of the flowers on it is also wilted. Lilly takes another look at the totems and concludes that the totem poles were actually used for some kind of game of limbo, and the crown must have been the prize. Apparently nobody was able to claim it, maybe due to the limbo game being cancelled for some reason. Probably from some sort of wardrobe malfunction accident? who knows.

:bd_2021_lilly: : Ehhhhhhhh... knowing Arthurius' love of hats, maybe he wouldn't mind how rotten and moldy this is... or maybe Mags can use this as a basis to make a new crown with her dream constructing.

:bd_2021_lilly: : if anything, it could make for a good gag gift for him regardless.

>"Kalez, if the world wasn't on the brink and was rather calm and peaceful at least compared to right now what would you be doing?"

Duchess Kalez: "peace and quite the dream of the hapless laborer, misty eyed poet, secluded dullards or other such misguided fools. Peace creates restlessness, restless creates turmoil. just as a bountiful crop draws parasites so too does a peaceful kingdom, it takes constant effort from cunning leadership to convince the people that doom is always one step away. They must know gratitude and and enjoy the peace you crafted for them. Even in a unending peace that could never be, I would still work still improve this world for to grow idle is to grow weak."

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:

Meanwhile back in the boxcar, Arthurius sits with his back leaning behind a box. His head peeks out of his shirt which he ducked his head under to avoid getting decapitated. Only the top of his hat got destroyed. He takes a look at the fake vampire blood packet he found in one of the boxes. Some of it got in his mouth, it tastes a little bit like... raspberry jam?
