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:

Hey, so in the next update the cock is already chosen *you got the 2x high combo* but I get the feeling you guys would wanna know some more details about the CUM HIGH mechanic so here's a conversation between the DOCTOR and CAT about it. ENJOY!

Doctor: Basically, for the orgasmer, your body will release the normal hormones you do while you orgasm, and with your post-nut clarity you’ll receive an about 10 minute high, it varies based on your constitution and diet. The high itself is an organic one where your body produces extra feel good hormones and chemicals that act to lower anxiety, stress, and depression. So we’re not pumping any weird chemicals into your body. Basically it’ll make you feel a sense of euphoria for the duration and then peter off slowly so as not to cause a jarring shock to your system. We’re obligated to inform you that you shouldn’t operate motor vehicles during the high.

You: Can’t drive so not a concern.

Doctor: And for the taker, their body will experience a dry orgasm when they first absorb the semen through their mucous membrane, it’s like an orgasm but at around 1/3rd of the intensity. Then they’ll experience a similar, albeit slightly diluted high depending on how much cum they’ve had. Larger orgasms mean more powerful and longer highs. Though in your case, you’ll be cumming around… 3 fl oz with each shot, to put that in perspective, the average human male ejaculates around .2 fl oz for each shot and if they were to take a full load then it would last around… 15 minutes and be weaker then your high. Though this also depends on constitution and diet.

Doctor: And before you ask, YES you can eat your own cum and have a stronger high, it’s the semen itself that causes this, so when it’s being ejaculated you’re actually absorbing a portion of the high, that’s why it’s weaker in your partners.

You: Okay, but what about the double hig

Wait a moment... non-canon Willamena, at least, has a thing for photography we haven't seen in canon yet, and Cat is being trained in exhibitionism. Is that going to come up, or is Willamena's camera thing purely a non-canon affectation?
No. 135357 ID: afe7de

She talks about her love of photography in Part 1 during her first date, and she has tons of photos of everyone in her house during her second date, no, it's a canon thing. She's into photography. She just is the kind of person who doesent shove it in your face or constantly ask for photos of everyone.

I would say that there’s some degree of interbreeding possible. Mostly between fey/elementals and fey/mortals. Though fey and elementals are so long lived, that its fairly rare for them to have kids in the first place. Cross planar children would be even rarer but still possible!

'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.

a few words on the interlude:

le interlude was basically covering everything that I thought up for pt. 1 choice options that y'all didn't choose. If you had hung out with Margot or Kibble, you would have gotten their backstories, if you had visited your sleeping body while you were a soul the first time, you would have seen Body's soul, which used to have a weird design (see attached.)

i also wanted to give a bunch of exposition more actively rather have the characters just tell evelyn everything. it helps to have the experienced character as the narrator, since she actually knows stuff about the magic world.

Just because you follow a god of death doesn't mean you hate the god of life. Life does not exist without death, and vice versa. I don't really get the whole "anti-life" thing especially considering Ndepthteph is depicted as a worm, which is a living organism, but I do know that if the worship of her revolves around the fact that life as we know it came about in opposition to her, it'd be more like worshipping the concept of emptiness, or wishing that life did not exist to begin with. And that's not exactly a religion that would inspire fanaticism without also inspiring mass suicide or open war. A religion that wants to remove all life would outlaw reproduction, as well, which means their numbers would go down fairly quickly over time.

Yeah, sure, clues. I'm sorry but that's just not a good method of explaining lore that gives needed context to an existing conflict when the lore involved is something the main character should know. We should at least know the basics, and despite my repeated attempts to get ganymede to fucking SAY ANYTHING ABOUT IT, I don't know the basics. For example, before you explicitly said that Ndepthteph is the goddess of anti-life I just thought she was the first to be born. The first life, not some kind of paradoxical life that is also anti-life.
No. 134751 ID: 16d082

I’m really enjoying this worldbuilding
I wonder, do Arthocobs have cults placing emphasis on specific deities, such as the Romans had? The preacher from the first thread being crazy and clearly unwelcome in the village makes it seem that the worship of Ndepthteph is a fringe belief if not outright heresy, but he could still just be an outlier in a larger, more moderate religious faction.
though, granted, the nihilistic worship of inevitability and death itself probably doesn’t have broad appeal.

So when are we going to finally get back to the dating part of the quest?
No. 135278 ID: 11f77a

I promise there's only... 3% left of the current thread. And then the actual dating part will happen.

I understand how dumb it may be now, I couldn't help myself but try and establish a looming conflict that will affect everyone as the story rolls on. I've had readers who both like the direction it's going--but still speak up about its misleading title.

Arthocob Date began as something out of the blue with no thought for its future. But as all things I create--I start piling stuff on top to give it more... life?

Anyway, Ganymede will be able to date next thread. And it won't have to be exclusively to Eudora. Promise.

Another small update. Going to be taking another break from the herd after I manage to finish the next update. Just haven't had a ton of motivation or inspiration to work on things lately. Hopefully should have the ball rolling again sometime in September.

Giving the thread a bump, how did everyone enjoy thread 10?
No. 134773 ID: e7c7d3

It's been cute and fun as always! I'm liking Candy's new outfit, I'm glad we got that opportunity.
My main critique would be that there were a couple of updates where there wasn't really a decision or guidance by the readers wasn't needed. And there wasn't enough energy happening in the scene to give comments on.
Still, you've got good intrigue going on and I'm looking foreward to the next thread

Oh no! Something happened with Candy and Marsh's enchantment stones and their souls ended up getting swapped. Now they're stuck in the other's body!

numerous questions and complaints have been voiced
probably best to have them answered outside of quest

Best of luck with the jobhuntening, teegee.

I forget, do you have a Patreon or Ko-Fi account or something? Might want to toss a dollar or ten your way.
No. 135228 ID: 3994a2

Thanks! (Sorry for being literally a month late to reply to this, things got busy again lol whoops, turns out interviews are a lot of work)

Now that that's all done with and I've got a job, my schedule is a lot more regular and predictable, so with any luck that'll translate to posting updates more regularly again.

>Patreon or Ko-fi
I don't at the moment, but I might open something like that up eventually. Even if I don't do it, I really appreciate the thought regardless, so thank you.
No. 135230 ID: 9a2966

Gladdening news on both the successful jobhunt and the (hopefully) more regular updates.

>No plans for Patreon or Ko-Fi atm
Keep us informed! I'd be happy to toss you some tokens of appreciation for all your fine work thus far.

(And, as an aside, nothing you set up has to offer commissions, special party favors or anything like that. The main benefit of supporting you is already you having put your interactive stories up here for us to play with.)

>"Those Orchid fuckers wanted us to zap the samples into our dust. To hide 'em inside us until they give the all-clear signal. So fine, they fuckin' win. I'm ready for this shit to be over."

So maybe Mint was probably the one who gave the all clear symbol then. But then there would still be the question on why her reaction was apologizing and crying as Penny was falling unconscious. Maybe she was tricked in some way?
No. 135263 ID: 9a2966

The Orchids definitely delivered a signal through Mint - triggering some sort of command or killswitch. I'm not sure that was an 'all-clear' signal, though, since the situation doesn't seem very 'clear' by anyone's definition.

It could be a failsafe thing, something intended to make Penny go buh-bye as if she'd ingested raw taffa and / or restoring her old sense of self as Ciobhan (hence the flashback chapter) or just a handy way to extract the dust samples Ciobhan's body got loaded up with (at least judging by the way things are going).

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.
No. 131496 ID: 0fae41

Well, even if it didn't solve the problems you hoped it would, the work you did in 3D looks amazing. I hope what life throws at you sorts out, and remember interest in ROCK is not dead.
