Considering AfterQuest produces lots of discussion, I decided to make a thread for it here. Dunno if it's necessary to make one for Sergals in /tg/.

I can't really picture her mouth doing that.

As for eyes so full of rage that they become colored on a black and white drawing, well...

Test Pattern, why did you have to stop? This quest captured my heart, and it won't let it go.

Not bumpan for fear of mod rape.
No. 9327 ID: ec4966

>Test Pattern, why did you have to stop?
I wanted to do Tozol Quest.

And, well... I was worried about fucking up a good thing. So I put it on hold so I can't mess it up.
No. 9389 ID: 67c611

Y'know with you updating at crazy hours of the night, a one update a day schedule would work perfectly. People from every timezone would be able to respond to each post. People that only had one free hour a day would be able to follow each post. People wouldn't have to worry about being here at the right time to catch the quest. It would give more time to consider each post. The number of different posters would increase. It would reduce demand on the author. Consistency in update schedule would help.

Damn, why didn't I think of this sooner?
No. 9390 ID: 2248db

And the quest would grind down to a halt. Hell, I don't read once-a-time quests only because doing anything takes weeks, if not months. It might be nice to read those later when they're archived, but that's a surefire way to make me, personally, lose all interest in it while it's running.
No. 9391 ID: 2cbe3e


You know that for a long while AfterQuest updated a post a day, right?
No. 9440 ID: 67c611

Since all the threads have been archived, I'm posting this here.

So, is After quest like ever coming back?

Was just wondering, friend told me the guy said it was to much work and didn't want to do it anymore.
No. 15773 ID: b203e5

Your friend is somewhat confused. Pattern (the author) explains why he stopped making it in this very thread. It's just a few posts up.

The same guy is currently doing Tozol Quest. You might want to check it out. It's quite alright.
No. 16230 ID: 3b3f66

Tozol quest is okay....I hope he goes back to After quest though
No. 31218 ID: f2a482

>I hope he goes back to After quest though
Agreed, AfterQuest is awesome. Left it on a bit of a cliffhanger too...
No. 31220 ID: 18c6d7

I know the feeling, man. But I will say I find After Quest, even with its cliffhanger ending, to be quite good.
No. 56655 ID: 27bfbb

So is this shit ever going to be continued or not?
No. 56660 ID: 67e8b2

I don't know what to tell you. I keep meaning to do it, but it's been a long, long time. Somewhere along the way I think I just forgot how to do a quest update with any kind of brevity.

I would like to see the quest continued, but the slower I get, the more daunting it seems. (Which makes me even slower)
No. 56676 ID: 42683e


How about starting a short or very short quest on purpose then?

Just so you get back into it and get a feel for it again.

Hey, you know what doesn't matter if you fuck up the updates for?

Legitimate Quest.
No. 56678 ID: c891d3

Hate to say it but last time this happened we got Tozol Quest, which, if anything, is not short.
No. 56684 ID: 42683e


Then just give after quest another go.

A few updates on it wont hurt the story either way.

"How about if... George Washington asked you to update After Quest?"
"...are you trying to bribe me with one dollar?"
"A quarter, actually."
No. 56719 ID: 927efa

After Quest doesn't need much updating anyway. It's one thread tops. Either she swims in the main character's blood and it's game over, or she has a change of heart "And then they fucked." The mystery was how a Talyxian could be pushed to be so brutal and cruel, and well it was solved. The mystery was why good loving unmurderous sergals were disappearing, and that got solved too. What else do you want, another embarassing bathhouse scene?

In contrast with After Quest, Penji hasn't even gotten to the surface yet. Tozol Quest has a huge amount of development left. Plus it's original not a fan comic in the Vilous universe putting test pattern's waifu's personality into an unfitting species.
No. 56721 ID: f453e3

The only development Tozol Quest seems to have left at this point is how long it will take Penji to die. I can't imagine how she would survive, let alone escape, after having her spine severed, so any "development" that might have occurred would seem to be off the table now.

Goshen, on the other hand, actually seemed to have a chance of surviving the encounter he was in when the quest was put into deep freeze, mostly by virtue of still being able to work his limbs.
No. 56722 ID: 132b99

uhh, mitzi drags penji and a ton of anti-supress to the spess shark, and fill it up. it then uses LAZERS to break open the roof and carries mitzi and penji away in it's mouth. penji focuses on figuring out codes and shit and when a spess shark shows up in tozol territory saying codes that tozols would die rather then give up from torture, they will see it's totes legit.

And then they all get ice-cream, presumably.
No. 56733 ID: f453e3

See, now you've somehow made it sound even less plausible than it already was.
No. 56735 ID: 42683e


Once the business with the talyxian is over, there's still the question of what becomes of goshen's personal dustback. Pretty sure most people would want to know what becomes of him.

Also, wasn't there some mention of a possible alliance brewing against sergals back where goshen killed the two humans after dream-rain talked to him? Might be remembering wrong on this one.
No. 56737 ID: 4a20fa

Nah, there was some kind of big plot in the background. The stash Goshen burned was Shadran's payoff IIRC.
>>/questarch/527199 or thereabouts.
No. 56749 ID: 42683e


Yeah, that's what I meant.
No. 56762 ID: 927efa


Yeah, because a severed spine is the worst injury she's had before. The biggest quest-ender at this point is being incapacitated by the humans, who would then not finish the job but hook her up right next to what's his face until she went catatonic too.

Then Marcus comes and has a huge guilt trip over how he done goofed toying with the lives of other prisoners. Then he nurses Penji to health by spooning her mashed circuit boards, and she's memory wiped again, and then the Diplomats arrive.

That's not even taking into consideration any allies Marcus could have gained during this time by doing what he should have done in the first place and ratted out the evil experimenters to the insanely powerful civilizations they were trying to experiment on in secret.

So even if Penji gets totaled, captured, and rendered comatose, that still leaves a ton of open ends just begging for another chapter. After Quest, in comparison, has only the great mystery of why Goshen, a northern sergal, went nutso and savagely killed a bunch of people.
No. 56782 ID: f453e3

Look, you're only a little more plausible than >>56722 up there. Still a situation where the quest's continuation is contingent on Test bailing us out with another character (or several). (Personally I would have just not have Penji get shot in the spine to begin with, since it's rather hard to move forward in a way that matches the quest's overall feel and Test can't really call backsies on it now like he did with the displacer rocket. But I'm not running the quest!)

Also, as the posts above you mention, it's not as though After Quest doesn't have any plot beyond the immediate situation.
No. 56808 ID: f647c0

>Test can't really call backsies on it now like he did with the displacer rocket

...it had poor setup, but that doesn't mean it wasn't an ability planned well in advance.

Personally, I'm still waiting for some impossible-to-mess-up Legitimate Quest.
No. 56815 ID: c3c502

I dunno. You guys seem a little pessimistic to me.

Penji can repair her spine, sure, if gets out of there. Problem is just getting there. If we could just get the dang missiles fired and down the hole, that would be it. We just need a little luck in a desperate, risky evac- not an outright Deus ex Machina rescue.

Our big problem, I think, was we fought to pretty much the brink, and then expected our escape route to be ready. And then Mitzi was all "Durr, the hole's barely started, I need more time!". Only then we had no more time. And got shot in the neck.
No. 56817 ID: 42683e

I think this is an after quest thread, not a test pattern general quests thread.

That said, continue after quest.

The quest hasn't been updated in 3 years. Until such a day comes that this quest lives again, this thread will rest right along with it.
