Eesh. No Gothic love, anyone?

Thoughts for the get together:

- We should find something to trade Xerxes for the singing stone first, so we Daisy will be able to communicate during it. Maybe ask around about ocarinas.

- I think it would be really nice to go out and pick stuff from the garden for it. Food & Flowers. That can wait until the day of, though.

- Might be nice to get Oddrie that fruit he wanted from the forest too. The Fruit Of Eden.
No. 114670 ID: a307f1


OH also, Lavender can knit clothes! What if we had her make herself something to wear?
No. 114674 ID: 91ee5f

>Might be nice to get Oddrie that fruit he wanted from the forest too. The Fruit Of Eden.
If we do that, then maybe Oddrie will end up evolving into a form that'll let him walk?

But that might mean trading the Wendigo the Sliver of Humanity it wanted and I don't want to do that! Even Toblerone didn't like talking about that guy!
No. 114675 ID: be0718

Xerxes' patients might be shedding Slivers of Humanity as they transform.
No. 114683 ID: 3ce125

We should ask Xerxes if it's a good idea to trade a sliver to the wendigo.

I'd also like some insurance when we go meet him again. I was thinking we could bring a drone along but they won't hatch until a human shows up- wait we can hatch one via the Void! Just lay an egg in the secret area and come back in 3 hours to pick up the drone to serve as a bodyguard.
No. 114684 ID: a307f1

maybe! it would be helpful if oddrie could physically get to the party!

hey maybe so.... we should go see maybe?But like >>114683 said we should ask about it. And do it anyway because of burning curiosity, probably.
No. 114688 ID: ba56e6

We could have the party as a picnic out in Oddrie's garden.
No. 114689 ID: 91ee5f

What about Toblerone? He's stuck in a painting on the wall!

Unless he'd be ok with getting carried around? I'm not sure if he'd like that.
No. 114690 ID: be0718

He can move between paintings and extend himself out of him, if we moved the party outside we could just set one up on an easel.
No. 114691 ID: ba56e6

Yeah, an eisle should work. Surely somebody around here is an artsy type and has one.
No. 114693 ID: 91ee5f

Actually, there's someone else that's stuck outside! Amelie in the FOUNTAIN!

Although, she can move between different water sources, I don't think she'd be comfortable coming out of someone's glass of water! And I'm not sure if Toblerone would like someone making a puddle on the floor for Amelie to come into the house!

And then there's Crackle. I'm not sure if he can come out of the tv and I'm not sure if we can get the tv outside or if we have an extension cord long enough to reach out there!
No. 114700 ID: a307f1

good points.... we should ask these folks about these things.

Theres a few monsters we havent spoken to many times! The party is good for getting to know them more but we should definitely talk to them a bit beforehand.

Hey there! Just wanted to et you know; my old computer is entirely borked, which means I've lost a lot of art. There's some references I can use, and I can most likely just download the character art, but much of the backgrounds were entirely lost. It may take a while til next update while I recover from losses.
No. 114802 ID: a307f1

No. 114803 ID: 91ee5f

Nooooo! Not the backgrounds! D-':>
No. 114804 ID: 3ce125

Can't you recover the backgrounds you've already used via the images posted in the quest?
No. 114875 ID: 22b85b


I Can recover the characters, but not the backgrounds. Reason being that the pictures in the quest usually have a character superimposed over the background itself, So I can move them around easily or edit them without having to redraw the scene from scratch every time (Because I'm Lazy). Downloading those scenes would essentially mean I would be redrawing part of it anyway, so it would be better to just go the extra mile and redraw the whole scene.

Bad news everyone: Due to the difference in Operating systems (I was foolish and bought a chromebook) I am actually unable to make art in the same style as I was previously able to. As a result I'm putting Spookquest on Hiatus until I get down exactly how the new art program works.

On the flipside I may create a new thread to help me get the hang of it.

Aw man, I'm sad. But I relate to your problem, rip. I do really, really hope you get back to spookquest, even if you have to alter the art style, because it's my fav quest on tgchan currently! I've had a lot of fun with it and with updating the wiki page for it. I've always been so excited to see updates and I love all the characters to bits. I have some fanart I might post sometime if I can get around to coloring them.

I am very excited at the possibility of another thread though, I love your quests!

> After some review, it appears that the 'old thread or new thread' question is sort of a moot point here-- Due to the way that the system works, I won't be having Lavender as the 'controlled' character anymore, but rather a dateable character. This is simply due to how my current art program prevents me from effectively adding in new pictures without automatically resizing them and-- thusly- Me losing pixel compression. Therefore I'll be starting a new thread (unfortunately) With a new 'date machine'- A Human. This will allow me to show how the monster's powers work as well as add the new Sanity aspect to go with the Romance aspect. Keep your wits about you!

Well, what about Lavender's side quests we were doing? And her relationships with 8-bit, who we enjoyed flirting with because he's easily flustered, and Teleste, who we shared a kiss with?

And most importantly, what about the party?!

Aw, I'm gonna miss her.
No. 116958 ID: 3abd97

I'm... gonna be honest here, I realized I rolled a 1d2 rather than a 1d22 on the thread and then rolled an online diceroller and got... The same result. So! Congrats to Garak on being the main character! Ignatias and Dolores both had good enough art/ backstory to net a position as monster hunters Garak can 'call' (assuming he ever gets a phone) and Egon Angesicht and Drake Irving were both interesting enough concepts they'll also be side characters! Congrats to everyone that got a place in!

...But, er, I'm not really sure how we're going to go from gun toting to monster dating. Knowing what we know, the wisest course of action for our character would be to run now and nuke the site from orbit. Maybe we have to collect evidence of monsters first before they'll believe us?

On a side note for some reason it's taking forever and a half to upload images at the moment; So if a character seems to do something contrary and it was a recent post, it's because I tried to post before that post happened.

Did anyone suggest to attack?
No. 117043 ID: 22b85b


Garak in his scared state chose to interpret 'take all his bullets' as 'unload his entire gun'. You'll have far less control of the monster hunters, instead having to 'guide' them. On the plus side, this means they have a personality, and it also means that if Garak 'dies' rather than the quest ending you simply start with a new hunter looking for Garak.
No. 117044 ID: 22b85b

And DO expect to die; If you reach 0 SP or 0 HP, you'll Go insane/Die. SP recovers after rest, HP recovers from taking time to heal. VISCERAL type monsters do HP damage, MENTAL type monsters do SP damage, and HORROR types can do either, but tend to do less overall.

It feels like he's only going to take suggestions that involve fighting the monsters or preparing to fight them.
No. 117047 ID: 22b85b


Initially; Yes! That's exactly what was going to happen. Due to his backstory and skillset, Battle and Battle prep was what the character was oriented around. Now that he knows he's in over his head, ALSO due to his backstory he's going to do reconnaissance. Depending on how you want this to GO, you can either try to lead him towards a path that will circumvent his bias OR you can try to get him killed. Or try to get the monsters in the house killed, up to you.

Leaning towards getting him killed, but that just means we'll wind up with a stronger hunter arriving afterwards. Heck even if we don't get him killed the other hunters are going to show up aren't they?

When you mentioned previous characters can be re-submitted, what about characters that were already chosen for side characters? Are respawns where they'll come in or should we wait to let them appear on their own?
No. 117083 ID: 22b85b


If they're NOT chosen for the respawn they'll show up later. if they ARE chosen for the respawn now is when they'd show up. In other words you CAN choose a side character as the new Hunter, but if you don't they still continue to exist as a side character.

Certainly not! ...admittedly though I did want to see if you lot would get killed with the first character show I could show that there are consequences to actions. It is partially why I implemented the 'don't leave the foyer' rule in the first place; a rule which won't be happening this time around. It's also important to note that the death does allow me to figure out which things work and which don't based on people's reactions: At the current moment there is the very delicate problem of allowing too MUCH control over a character (As happened with lavender previously) VS too LITTLE control over a character (as with Garak). The implimentation of swaystones should allow for a healthy medium in this regard: You'll have direct influence of something in the world, and the main character can regard or disregard this advice without it affecting them negatively directly. If you have any advice I would genuinely like to hear it; Thus far 'I don't like this' or 'give me more control' doesn't really do anything.
No. 117096 ID: 91ee5f

Just curious, when Garak was killed and you let us add abilities to the other Hunter suggestions, is there a limit to the number of abilities that can be given to a Hunter?

Mostly because it wouldn't be fair if we made the next Hunter impossible to be killed by the monsters, but we also don't want to make the Hunter too easy to be killed by monsters either.
No. 117097 ID: 91ee5f

Also are you going to be deciding the next Hunter's starting HP/SP or is that something we should do?
No. 117098 ID: 22b85b


Hunters can accumulate skills easily; But having too many starting skills means they'll start to accumulate curses; negative traits that aren't easily removed. Lavender's [PHYSICAL WEAKNESS] is considered a curse.

Monster Hunters start with 20 HP and 20 SP. As they explore and get hidden achievements these scores will increase. The increase carries over to new hunters.
No. 117116 ID: be0718

In a world where monsters have existed this long and no progress has been made in treatment, someone's got to be suppressing the information. If Dolores reports back to her superiors with her findings, I think she's going to find out what happened to those other whistleblowers.

Visceral type monsters are physical attack based; they damage HP through things like claws, knives, weapons, etc.

Mental type monsters attack the psyche selectively, they utilize illusions, grotesque imagery, and assaults on the mind to inflict insanity before creeping up on their prey

Horror type monsters are a mix; They use both mental assaults on the mind and visceral attacks to inflict damage; things like diseases, venoms, or purposeful damage without killing are how they inflict damage.

There's a rock-paper-scissors in how the three interact; Visceral are strong against Horror, Horror are strong against Mental, and Mental are strong against Visceral

HORROR type monster

A monster that does his best to stay hidden from sight, the most you really see of him is flashes out of the corners of your vision. Loves to play tricks on others, these tricks range from harmless to mentally scarring. Likes to think up puzzles or brainteasers sometimes, he may or may not use them in his pranks.
No. 117544 ID: be0718

Gizmo - HORROR - A little gremlin that crawls inside your head and hijacks your body! This tiny terror can go out and see the world, provided she gets inside her victim without them ever seeing her! Her only other natural abilities are ventriloquism and a high jump - useful for getting someone to look the wrong way for a second while you catapult yourself from a nearby shelf. Or getting away if that fails. She enjoys being carried and devising mechanical mobility aids for when she's roughing it on foot.
(Her current host has been around long enough that he's been monsterfied - he is objectionable to Dolores in some way, either from the ill-fitting youth's baseball uniform he wears or the unmistakeable signs of a monster hunter.)
