Kind of backwards way of doing this, but now that the first episode is done, what do people think?

It's not really a perfect one-to-one mapping, but there's definitely an overall trend along the scale being measured. For archival purposes, in the all-too-likely event Tumblr implodes:

Level 1: Porn with plot

Level 2: Porn with social commentary

Level 3: Porn with troubling philosophical implications

Level 4: Porn with maddening revelations of humanity’s place in the cosmos

Level 5: Porn with math

I admit, I was really dissapointed we didn't get a sex scene with Opinel. Is there any possibility we will get one in the future?
>>
No. 128365 ID: 7816e7

Its something I'll have to think about. Opinel is one of those guys who seems to find combat more romantic than fucking. In a sense... it was good for him...?

This chapter evolved a lot more than most as I was writing it. initially Opinel was a kind of imposing, silent, black knight and I'm really happy with how he came out. But I hadn't planned for any kind of zombie/ghoul fucking in the chapter.

As fun as the lewd stuff is to write, it has to feel like its in character and works with the story. Fuckin Opinel is something Im not going to rule out, but I don't want this to feel like Coxwette where people get angry or disappointed because X character got fucked instead of Y. As the cast gets bigger, I'm not sure who is going to have sex scenes and who wont, but no matter who it is, I want people to feel included in the fun.

Opinel wasn't too surprising, its more that his character changed at the last minute and I wasn't really expecting to do anything lewd with him. (though as he's clearly been bisected at some point in his past, I have some worrying questions about the mechanics of lewd times)

As for Norman, yeah that caught me pretty off guard. of all the NPCs, hes the one people wanted to shag? huh...

How does fay magic work? if it requires a deal I'm sure we could come up with something. We have mostly had Nixxy help with her mind, this seems like a chance to have her flex some more magical muscles unless this is all highly dependent on the fay in question.
>>
No. 128844 ID: bc3a02

As for the complicated and expensive thing, my thought is that as the average citizen probably doesn't know extensive seelee law, they can use tricky wording and uknown rules to fuck people over with their deals.

For nixxy herself though, they might just not think much of her in that sense cause her demeanor is coming off more like an excited tourist.

These actually both kind of tie together.

The Feywilds are essentially a place where the Age of Wild Magic never ended. Mana is much more readily available there and magic is much more common. Fae society is designed around the idea that many of its citizens are capable of things like: shapechanging, invisibility, and some forms of teleportation. To maintain the rigid hierarchy, they rely on rules that seem arcane and weird to the mortal world.

Some of that ties into the rules of trade between the worlds. Fey don't have a whole lot of interest in things like money, so when buying from them you might end up bartering away... memories, a performance or whatever is in your pocket. The most reliable thing to trade with them is handcrafted goods, since the time and skill involved are recognized as a form of value. There's a fair amount of small household charms that owe their existence to trade between the mortal and fey realms, such as ice charms and magelights.

so we need to ask Nixxy what, if any, kind of magic she has, got it.

I brainstormed some general possibilities on the newest charater, Clio's apparent resemblance with Augustine Moot, founder of Moot Point. My understanding is that all the comments/speculations/analyses/casual conversations should be posted here, while the quest-threads are for plot-driven suggestions only. So here they are.

Possibility 1: Clio is biologically related to Moot.

Possibility 2: Clio is reincarnation of Moot.

Possibility 3: Clio is Moot.

Possibility 4: Clio received some of Moot's power.

Possibility 5: Clio was exposed to a power source which Moot was also in contact with.

Possibility 6: Clio received her power through an attempt to replicate Moot's power.

Personally I think them being relatives is most likely; it's an intuitively straghtforward connection. She doesn't have to be a direct descendent; could also be a distant relative from a family line that stayed when Moot gated away. Though her lack of training / knowledge of the senders still have to be explained. Perhaps she was seperated from her family from youth? Or the power was lost in her family line until emerged again on her? Could the chapter title "The Wild Hunt" be an indication that some fays are involved?

Regardless, I'm enjoying this quest as always, and look forward to see how things go.

I also think it'd be amusing if by the end of chapter, Gabe ends up learning Claíomh Solais after spending time with Clio...

I really have to wonder why there are so many people who apparently never read any other suggestions. That's especially important when a riddle or puzzle is involved.

This one was solved in the first two suggestions, then we got a ton of suggestions who are either trying to cheat, or don't understand the rules.
>>
No. 129546 ID: 53cdab

>>129545
That's because the first two suggestions contained the classic answer, the one that's sure to work when the puzzle is explained by a third party. It goes out the window when the alleged knight and knave are the ones explaining (an example of this I can remember off-hand was Yu-Gi-Oh).
>>
No. 129547 ID: 53cdab

>>129546
Thinking back of it, it can be made to work when the knight and knave explain, but there's a trick to it. When I showed this riddle to my BC players, I had both location-bound pink horrors say the same words while pointing at different doors: "This door leads to doom, and this door leads forward, I always tell the truth, and (point to each other) he lies!"
They were both lying anyway to cover up the hidden third door.

My guess is that everyone is busy waiting for the porn to be over before they can problem solve again (or put work in for more porn rewards later).

They got what they want in that moment and all they can really suggest in that period is what positions to take. The reality is that a lot of people simply agree that sandwiching is what they wanted, and don't want to keep responding with "THIS, SANDWICH TIME" except for a few people.

Then a little bit after, a majority are probably confused on what to do exactly because there isn't a goal list after the porn scene, so people need time or new updates/panels to reorganize their thoughts and in-quest goals. People aren't actually sure what to do next. Then once we're rolling the suggestions and ideas come through in order to meet those goals.

I've noticed how the group has sex all the time with other people, but apparently not enough with each other that when they do bone they say they should do it more often.

There's implications there, man. Not negative ones, it's just a weird one. At worst it means they're almost neglecting each other over other relationships. Porn's happening all the time, but I guess they don't do it enough themselves off screen. At least they're still happy with each other and it seems healthy.

Popping in to say I've caught up with Moot Point, and I'm loving it. The sex is great, and I love the not-sex even more. Actually, there's literally only one sex scene I skipped/skimmed, and it was the one after the riddle in (I think) Episode 9. And that was only because I couldn't get over how avoidable the "fumble" that led to it was; either the two guardians forgot/didn't understand how and why their own dang riddle worked, or they were outright dishonest to try and coerce a sexual favor from us: The whole point of the "correct question" is to make him give the same answer, regardless of whether he was the liar or not. They literally didn't need to remember who the liar was for this to work; it should only cause things to break down if the test-takers don't ask the right question.

Okay, rant over. I suggest we playfully call them out on it next time we meet them. Be all "you know you could have just asked" on them. :3c

So the latest update (the festivities with the 'bolds, and Gabe's apology) got me thinking about Kol's words:

Is it possible for a medium to assume another body, just as other spirits have? And if so, what is the Circle's stance on this (at least I think that's what Kol said his order is called)?

Dear Toxo,
Thank you so much for this lovely, fuzzy, queer quest! I just wanted to ask whether the idea of being “trans*” exists as a concept in the world of Moot Point? I ask because we’ve encountered so many wonderful characters who could be read as trans (Vivian, Cecil, Cervantes, Miki – gosh, I adore Miki – and now Cauldera). These characters have played a major role in getting me so invested in the quest, and in helping me feel seen and okay with my own identity. However, I don’t want to be doing an injustice to the characters by reading/projecting onto them as trans* if the concept itself makes no sense in Moot Point (though if the concept doesn’t exist because there’s simply no presumed connection between bodies and identities in Moot Point, that’s a nice utopia to aspire to too…)

Question: is it possible to create a 'spirit contraceptive' by actively enchanting someone's womb to prevent soul energy from entering, or does that create an empty shell?

Alternatively, other magic.

That would explain all the constant unprotected sex.

No. 133847 ID: 9eb9b7

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.

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!

>>133997 chapter 1 and chapter 2 are both in one thread, it’s possible thats where the confusion is? The wiki has links to every thread
