Hey, just for checking! Are we going to be able to use other party members? Troy and Ichigo is our usual squad but I think that Chopper and Eto are also a good ideia when scavanging or completing certain jobs.
No. 126177 ID: a451fc

Maybe, if you go to meet another character and talk to them you might be able to ask them to help on a job, you do know where most of them live or hang out most of the time. Though they might ask for money if it's a job. You won't be able to round up a whole posse and just storm an abandoned bunker though, not yet anyway.

Yep, The Fool definitely fits Roland.
No. 126184 ID: eeb7d9

Wasn't that Troy? I thought Roland was The Hanged Man.
No. 126187 ID: 0e2ebe

That was Roland's Halloween costume, and honestly very different from the tarot version.
No. 126188 ID: d3602f

The way I remember it, Troy was the Emperor, at least prereboot. Gallows was the hanged man, yes, but tarot cards are not just about personality, they are about situations. As far as I can remember, Gallows only fit The Hanged Man so far as that he was almost hanged. In this reboot he's never been in danger of being hanged. At least, not as far as I can tell. The Gallows came from his father, so we don't really have any reason to think he was almost hanged.
No. 126191 ID: fa2b06

Oh, I think it was more methaporical than literal, prereboot gallows wished to reset the world. As quote, unquote, the "The Hanged Man is the card of ultimate surrender, of being suspended in time and of martyrdom and sacrifice to the greater good."
No. 126197 ID: eeb7d9

I see. So, what kind of card would represent Roland in this SR?
No. 126200 ID: fa2b06

The fool, The Magician and The Chariot, depending of the context and general ideias. Honestly I'm not really that experienced in tarot reading but I think I can pinpoint theses three.
No. 126202 ID: 1872dc

Sounds about right. Is there one specifically for scholars? I kinda remember that falls under the Magician but is that the specific card, or is that just for learning magical knowledge?
No. 126211 ID: d3602f

I think the Magician represents great potential, and the capability of using that potential. It doesn't necessarily mean
potential in knowledge though, I think it could include great skill in using a specific weapon, or someone's expertise in sculpting. If you're incredibly skilled at something, or have the potential to become so, it falls under the Magician.

I think the most scholarly card might be the Hermit, which kind of represents, well, being alone, searching for knowledge, and giving that knowledge to others. I think the card is more related to wisdom and knowledge about the nature of people, not intelligence, or external knowledge about the world and it's functions. Think more psychiatrist who understands why people feel a certain way and how they can become at piece with it, rather than an engineer or biologist who work immutable facts.

No. 126236 ID: 787c3d

Is TempleOS the standard operating system in this world?
No. 126250 ID: 26bb62

The Hermit is more symbolic of inner knowledge and solitude. The closest Major Arcana card to seeking outside knowledge would be The Moon, which can symbolize revealing answers.
No. 126251 ID: 26bb62

I think Temperance might fit Roland better. It represents patience, calmness, and finding meaning in our lives.

I wanted to use this gif instead of the still image, but used the wrong one on accident. I'm having fun making gifs, anyway is there a way to replace an image without having to delete the whole post and reposting?
No. 126334 ID: 080aaf

Certain mods can replace images - report your post with a link to the new image.
No. 126335 ID: 05ff2f

>...is there a way to replace an image without having to delete the whole post and reposting?
On your own, no. Only a site moderator can do that, as far as I know. If you get on the #tgchan IRC channel you could ask one on there to swap out the image for you.

It's also possible a mod will see your post here and replace the image without you even needing to contact them further, but being proactive would probably work better.
No. 126336 ID: 05ff2f

The report function is really for that too? I always thought it was supposted to be just for stuff like reporting spam and other rules violations.

Or would this guy leave something else instead of a quarter?

Why do i get a feeling that we are going to end up with a demon inside Roland all buddy-buddy?

It would actually be cool, a Lige of Incredible "Gentlemen". We have Roland, craizy action nerd, Princes the possessor, Vol the bard, Troy the subterfuge, and Ichigo the mutant. Yeah. I like that. Or would it be more like star crusaders? Somilite many possibilities.

There, it should be fixed now. It probably happened because of my laptop's pad is fucked up, so sometimes when i am typing something, i accidentaly touch the pad and i do things by mistake. It is a real pain in the ass. Some times is a silly mistake, some times it ruins a whole League of Legends's game, fucks a part of my homework, makes me re-write suggestions, etc.
No. 126722 ID: a451fc

There's no need to police what other suggesters suggest, If Troy could or couldn't make it I would have pointed that out in the next update. If something's not possible then it most likely won't happen but everybody's free to suggest what they want (within reason). If one suggester is locked on a certain goal they'd like to accomplish they are free to continue to attempt to do it whether it will or will not happen. I'd like to keep hostility in the quest down as much as possible please.

We were focusing on the wrong people. We were waifuing Ada and Hazel, ignoring the perfect husbando. His chains had ignited our passions, for we had our heart chained to him. No one could make us feel the way he made us feel. The lightness of breath, the heat of emotion, the angelic aura about him. He, and the possible interactions we may have had with him, shall be missed.

That's hard since I like almost all of my characters I can't just pick a favorite. I think right now Troy's up there, I like the design I gave him plus his ability is one I've had in my head since high school so I'm glad I get to use it.

I think only two or three didn't show up? Somewhere in the future maybe I'll find a way to use the characters, but it isn't guaranteed. I'd also love it if the original creators of some of the characters talked a little more about them, but I have no idea if any of them still read or follow this quest.

I foreshadowed the church a bit. I do plan for them to show up in the future.

That's kind of a hard question. I guess I get inspiration from whatever I'm reading or watching at the time. Delphi's super stretchiness came about after I began reading One Piece. Overall I think post apocalyptic fiction like Mad Max and Fallout were a source for the setting.

One of these days. Maybe soon, maybe later who knows?

The basic concept behind Lady was someone who sacrificed her identity to cleanse her home of a ghost plague. Her previous self has been erased from the memories of everyone who knew her, including herself. I could probably flesh out her past a bit more, but I don't want to make something that would conflict with your setting.

As for current Lady, she has a few goals that she would be working towards. The most important goal is to hunt down whoever caused the plague. The second most important is to clean up any other messes that person made. The third is to buy back her identity.

If you're alright with changing her design a bit, she could do with a shovel and bowtie. Baron Samedi was one of the inspirations for her.

Let me know if you need anything else. I'm always lurking.

Er, were you trying to link to a post in the quest board? If so, you need to put /quest/ before the post number. Also, in general, you gotta put the target board name in your links every time you inter-board link.
No. 126961 ID: a451fc

He is as hot as I can make a circular face with some circles for eyes.

Glad to see you're still here Shaman. I was sorta worried you'd stopped following the quest, but it's good to know you're lurking here. Say whatever you want to say about Lady, I'll do my best to stay faithful to your character but the new setting might mean that somethings will be different.

I was thinking about making little character cards to give characters a little fun trivia and enemies more backstory they don't get in the quest since so far all of them die in like 10 panels. When I do I'll draw their angels too.

Ichigo plays Metaknight

Is this sarcasm? Hard to tell.

Well, I'll speak my piece anyway. It makes sense to me, seeing as Bowser is pretty strong and good with defensive play, like the Caesura abilities. Caesura isn't very effective at long range combat though, at least not right now.
No. 127053 ID: eeb7d9

No no, i honestly didn't expected Bowser, i imagined something like Villager or Snake, or someone who uses tools or something like that, Roland's best wapon is his imagination, always getting out of situations using his ingenuity. Or maybe Ness, He has powers but uses tools as well.

REGAN: Just like humans, demons have multiple forms of communication. The human languages however are different from our own; This difference allows certain demons to utilize a dormant ability known as Omnilingualism which allows the demon to understand the human language just by hearing it for a long enough time. Imps are one such demon who utilize this ability, however it takes them around 2-4 Months of being exposed to a human language to understand it fluently.

REGAN: Some demons think that the reason human and demon languages are so different is due to the fact that each respective language is so internalized into each respective species that the meaning and power behind their letters and words give off a different energy, but this is only a theory.

Not really, I guess that time suggestors actually used the drugs and mandrake corpse to capture a displacer beast like I meant for them to do was sort of close? Not to make it sound like I have no faith in readers but after the door puzzle before it I wasn't sure.

Also I was thinking less Mario and Luigi and more Yume Nikki

Hey I read this over the last few days, its quite good. My favourite character is Vol for some reason.

I have some minor questions which probably arent things you have to stay quiet on for spoilers' sake.

If demons can't return to the Aether, how do they know whats in the, material plane(did the real world get a specific name, i dont remember)? What do demons in general think of the material plane? How common are demons anyway?
No. 127226 ID: a451fc

Glad you like the quest! Sorry it's been slow lately

Low demons like Vol would usually have no idea how to get back, but high demons do and High demons tend to talk about what they see, and the majority of lower demons in the Aether don't think about the material that much but high demons do think there is a lot to gain from it. Demons are fairly common in D3.

Is Troy being gay a thing that was carried over from the original D3 or is it a change you made for the reboot?

It's a little annoying to come back to like 5+ replies to see most of them is arguing but I don't seem to have control over that. Don't discredit someone else's suggestions, unless they're seriously offensively dumb or bad. Suggesting that a character who has the most interest in demons may be related to the presence of demons somewhere they normally shouldn't be isn't too outlandish. If you think the demons naturally occur in the dream world you can always suggest asking that inquest. These arguments happen too often for no real reason, if they continue at this rate we'll have one argument per thread and I'd hate for that to happen.

On a different note. Sorry for the inactivity once again. I don't think I'm going to abandon Slight Return anytime soon, I'll try keep up with the updates as best as I can, If anybody want's to ask questions or have things to say I'm always happy to hear.
No. 127809 ID: d3602f

Yeah, some people need to disagree civilly. Even if you're very much against a course of action, there is no need to make it personal.

Part of me really wants to retcon certain parts of D3, but I'm worried it'll be messy or just plain unnecessary for the story since the things I want to change are inconsequential to what's happening in the narrative.
No. 127882 ID: 4294c6

I'd say only retcon stuff if it affects things going forwards. Needing to write around plot holes or defunct character traits is worse.

You can also edit the previous threads and convert them into a visual novel.
No. 127883 ID: a451fc

It's really just tiny stuff, Like wanting to change Troy's ability name from 「The Doors」to「Escape」. I guess that's really it since the other thing I want to change is basically just a character design thing, but I feel like it'd be so obvious people would wonder why it's there.
No. 127886 ID: d3602f

Personally I think "The Doors" makes more sense, seeing as we can use it to do a lot more than escape. Our fight against Johnny and Jitter saw us using it to shoot from unexpected angles and cut at snakes without getting near them.

Whichever you choose doesn't really matter that much to me though.
No. 127888 ID: a451fc

It's more about how I like the way Escape's lyrics about personal freedom and living life your own way work with Troy wanting to get away from Channing. I guess the name doesn't really matter all that much.

That wouldn't really be a visual novel in the common sense though, it would just be a story with words and pictures you read electronically.
I think having some kind of streamlined version of a quest with just the updates is usually worthwhile though, for one thing it makes rereading to check what happened a lot easier.

i was thinking abot troys outfit

why does he not wear a horrible patchwork atrocity of different materials it would make his clothes usefull for doors
like if he was getting grappled he could portal stab /shoot his clothes and then bam fight over or if an atack is coming he could have it portal through him
idk though i woke up at like 1 am and had this idea and i dont remember if this would actually work
No. 127934 ID: a451fc

This could probably work, unfortunately Troy doesn't want to look like a fucking mess when he walks around. So he sacrifices functionality for looking good. Also I've had this idea for「The Doors」for like 5 years now and never thought of this once. I can't believe this wasn't the first place my mind went to.

It's also a really weird thought that people think of D3 at all in any form.
No. 127935 ID: b1b4f3

He could keep his appearance intact by using the same material for his pants as his coat. They're separate articles of clothing so they'd work as portal entry/exit.
No. 127940 ID: 2870a3

i guess he could also go and have the material the same color. or a chekerboard pattern. i disnt mean hideous i just meant like why wasnt his clothes made of 2(or more) different materials

i made a doodle of a couple of the ideas
(excuse the terrible pen sketch)
(idk how well the image will come out either as i havent done this with a phone image before)

the first would offer more areas to portal because the checkerboard pattern is on the full overcoat and the pants too uf the stripes are different but it looks tacky to me

the second one i thought he could wear underneat his original clothes instead of a shirt though it wouldnt protect his overclothes(the pants are just placeholder i just thought he would like cargo pants more than others)

but yeah thats my 2 cents

I think about it all the time! I'm usually trying to think of what to do during the current situation. But other times, I'm trying to think of ways to continue shipping Roland and Ada!

And I used to ship Troy with Uma in the original D3. But now that the quest has been rebooted and Troy is gay, I'm going to have to think of someone else to pair with Troy. Maybe that rhyming voodoo guy?

Brief History: Johnny was born and raised on his grandparent's small cattle farm in Arizona. Disinterested in working as a farmer however, Johnny would leave home at the age of 15 in search of a life that suited him better much to the dismay but acceptance of his grandparents. Moving from place to place in search of adventure, Johnny soon grew tired of living as a lone wanderer and at the age of 19 returned to his grandparent's farm to find it burned to the ground with two charred corpses in it's wreckage. Devastated by this Johnny would continue to wander the wastelands aimlessly, until he met Channing. Still grieving from the loss of his only family and longing to belong somewhere, Johnny would join Channing at age 20 and has been working with him for 6 years.

Personality: Johnny-G is cocky and stubborn seeing any challenge presented to him as easy to over come no matter how hard it truly is. Johnny at times can be cruel and uncaring about people he isn't close to, but to those he is allies with he is incredibly loyal to.

Age: 19
Blood Type: O
Height: 5'5 (165cm)

Brief History: Behind a New Mexico bar, a small toddler has been abandoned by neglectful parents. In the clouds of Heaven, an angel feels unwelcome among her kin for she holds domain over serpents, a creature seen as sinful to heavenly beings. When this angel fell from Heaven, it took residence in the child. Though angels see humans as beneath them this angel couldn't help but feel pity for the thing it was trapped in. Over the course of the toddlers life it would live off of stealing and mistrust of humanity, never speaking a word to anybody, only having inner dialogue with her angel. After years of silent solitude, the child would attempt to steal money from an odd man in a small Texas settlement. Though she would fail and be caught by him he would not be angered, a small part of him would be impressed that a kid almost got away with stealing from him, another part of him felt pity for such a small child was in such a situation. Either way the man took the child in, and would allow her protection in return for working under him. At that moment, at age 12, Jitter would come to work underneath Channing.

Personality: Jitter is quiet and withdrawn. She follows orders given to her to a tee without hesitation and always seems to complete whatever task is thrown her way. This however also means Jitter is very dependent on the orders of someone else, indecisive and lost on her own.
Favorite Food: Small Vermin (Raw)
Likes: Quiet, Dark spaces, The smell of cigarettes
Dislikes: Loud noises, Being touched by strangers, Alcohol

Angel: Anguis - Angel of Serpents

If we used red aura to make a bunch of eyes and used blue aura to actually see through them would that do anything?

No. 129110 ID: a451fc

Certain demons might be fooled, but not all of them. Some do understand how Aether energy and aura manipulation works so they won't all be fooled.

The eye hierarchy ,or eyerarchy if you think you're funny, really only applies to demons sapient enough to care about it. Ilywurms are more animal like so they really don't have any class. Some higher demons do enjoy insulting demons like Imps or Goblins with the idea that more bestial demons are still worth more than them because they have more eyes. Also the eye scale is: 0-1, 2-3, 4-5, 6-7, 8-9, 10-11, 12-, So 2 eyes isn't really "middle class".
No. 129111 ID: ad51b8

do "upper class" demons ever come to the mortal world or are they content to stay in their world since they're already at the top so don't really have a reason to leave their cushy life... at least I assume upper demons live cushier lives then lower demons.
No. 129112 ID: a451fc

High demons certainly do live cushier lives not having to worry about being hunted by something stronger. They will,at certain times, leave the Aether to either deal with certain humans or hunt them. Some types of demons have an appetite for human flesh, and almost all high demons like eating humans more than anything else.

No. 129168 ID: a451fc

Your temperament dictates what areas your aura works best, not the only places it can work. Channeling energy to the eye to sense things is still possible but with the Blue temperament it's easier, and other applications of it are possible in conjunction with the rest of your aura colors. Each color of aura has a much more minor application to it, with Green for example it's possible to relieve minor fatigue or aches with the proper techniques, and with Red it helps with the building of muscle and physical toughness in small increments. Of course these are harder to do and take extra time to practice and some people tend to be weak in certain areas.

This training arc is giving me the impression that Pagans have a complex, in-depth system for developing their own unique magical powers, and everyone else just gets one power depending on the circumstances.

Personally, I don't think this is a good idea. It's very interesting to have a magic system that lets us try and deduce how someone's abilities work and think up imaginative ways to counter them, and also lets us develop new abilities of our own, but I don't think it should be something that only one faction has. It just seems unbalanced that way.

I noticed that something like this happeend with the original version of the quest, with Gallows being able to summon a variety of demons and also learning other spells he could cast using his blood, while other magic users were given one specific ability that went along certain themes. It looked like you were moving away from this in the reboot, with the whole "making a pact with a demon to share their powers" thing which gave Pagans more specific powers, but now there's this whole system with Aetherial auras and temperament and everything which is totally different from how things worked before. It's all fun and interesting to have a system like that for magic fights, but I don't think it should be something that only Pagans have.

Speaking of which, I also don't like the idea that sharing Vol's powers was "doing it wrong". We've already spent a while seeing Roland's magic slowly develop that way, and the way we're basically starting over makes that seem kind of pointless. Not entirely, but somewhat.
No. 129375 ID: a451fc

Thank you for voicing your criticism on how Pagan magic was handled.

I've been thinking about the same thing you've stated with Pagans having too many abilities at once, I intended for Pagans to use every part of their Temperament in tandem to make one overall ability. Wick's main thing is Get Wicked and Daisy has Daisy Chain and even though they have multiple abilities the best way for them to be used effectively is if they're all being used together to essentially make one specific power. I did it because I was worried about making Pagan magic and Saint magic too similar, so I decided to go with Pagans needing to work with their aura and getting a small variety of more limited abilities they'd have to learn to make into a full power. Sorry if I didn't handle it well, but at this point I can't really change it too much. You're also right about the Vol situation, poorly handled.

I do think it's a little unfair to say that only one faction get's this when I haven't introduced Voodoo or Church magic in full yet, but you have made me think about how I'll handle the magic of Voodoo Users and The Church. Sorry if there were issues you had I didn't understand well. Thank you for telling me what you thought.

No. 129386 ID: 8d4593

I personally think your magic systems make sense, but I take issue with the saints you've introduced so far.

First off power level. It seems obvious that their powers should be the most limited in scope of all the types, but from what we've seen, it's not particularly powerful either.
From a purely meta perspective options are equivalent to power. To balance a magic system with vastly fewer options than another, the options it does have should be vastly more potent.

There's also some potential here that isn't being tapped.
I feel like saint's relationships with their angels should play a larger role. I mean one day you suddenly have a magical second personality chilling inside you. It could potentially do a ton of different things. Talk, argue, banter, berate, vie for control, cause hallucinations, alter perceptions in real time, Manifest itself (To just you or perhaps near you for all to see.), Play with your emotions, mess with your dreams, take over your body and when you go to sleep causing you to effectively live a second life, comment snarkily on things you do, obtrusively share it's opinions on the company you keep, make you suddenly say mean or embarrassing things to people, force you to inadvertently get into fights, take control of a single body part when your distracted, use it's magic when you aren't expecting it for whatever reason. The list goes on.

I definitely planned on fleshing out the relationships between the Saint and Angel, mostly with Troy and Gemini. These are all great ideas though.
No. 129392 ID: d3602f

Feel like the two need to be more in tune for it to work, rather than earning favors. Most people don't want to die, and angels are probably no different, so the only reasons I can think of that an angel wouldn't give all their power to their Saint would be
1. They hate their Saint enough that they would keep their power from them even if it's a danger to themselves
Or 2. They can't actively increase their Saint's power. I do feel like it might be interesting to make some Saints capable of hijacking angels without relating to the angel if they have enough willpower. You know, to justify a Saint being a terrible person without an Angel needing to be. Not to say there aren't angels who are psychotic assholes.

That last part with the arms, anyone have any ideas about that? Does Channing have some kind of corpse manipulating angel?
No. 129402 ID: 8d4593

Maybe, but that could be some Voodoo shit. In the old D3 Voodoo powers were typically all grim and wacky. Controlling corpses or just the limbs thereof would be thematically correct for it. If Voodoo in Slight Return maintains it's Deal-With-The-Devil aesthetic in regards to Loa as well, that would also fit what we know about Channing's personality.

By the Mods, Heretic, if you update any faster it'll be faster than I can read. You're making me feel slow.

And I'm saying this now, because I haven't before, you're really running a great quest here. The setting in particular is immensely interesting, and the characters, regardless of role, all have amazing depth. Kudos and luck to you. (As if you need either.)

Well, I don't really have a problem with the number of different things Roland could do with his aura. Like I said, that's an interesting system and could allow for a lot of fun and creative decision-making. My main issue was just that it was something only a specific subset of the world's "magic users" could actually work with. I can tell you're going for a Hunter X Hunter-style "spirit energy" system where fighters can use it to enhance their strength and speed and do a variety of other simple things in addition to their own special power, and I like that idea but I think it would be better if magic users in general could do it, or something like it.

On that note, it doesn't seem all that in-theme for Pagans. Their main concept seems to be dealing with demons and relating to them, and a system based on harnessing their own personal energy and developing techniques around it doesn't reflect that very closely. There was that legend about all of their energy coming from Athmoor, but still.

>I did it because I was worried about making Pagan magic and Saint magic too similar
I didn't see it that way beforehand, and I don't think it was a problem. All of the magic users we've seen gained their powers from spirits in various ways, but they all have their own different relationships with spirits nonetheless.

>Sorry if I didn't handle it well, but at this point I can't really change it too much. You're also right about the Vol situation, poorly handled.
Well, we've really only heard Flint's opinion on the matter. He prefers to train people a certain way, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's the only "right" way to use demon magic, or that the legends we've heard are the whole truth. Other Pagans might see things differently.
No. 129429 ID: eeb7d9

I agree, and i think you still have time to make your power/abilities systems more flexible if you so desire. Pagans had a lot of ways to fight in the original D3, you can still do that.
Vol only knew some runes, but other demons might know more, and depending of the phisical and mental capability of the pagan, they can use more runes simultainiusly and even combine them, just like thier aura. Or the more powerful is the demon or the pagan, their abilities can grow further.
I don't know, i'm just throwing ideas.
No. 129433 ID: 7dc36a

In theory, anyone could have access to Pagan magic, but I wouldn't be surprised if angels use its energy as their source as well.

Actually, I've been getting into this quest because I find Pagan magic, and the magic systems in general, be a really good metaphor for how to cope in a hard world. Pagan magic is about self-improvement and independence, and Pagans tend to compete with each other to improve. Saint magic is about obedience to a higher power, and the Church, or at least the Channing gang, functions by recruiting vulnerable people into their ranks.

I was thinking about what would happen if multiple angels were to host in the same Saint.
It's literally having lightning to strike multiple times in the same spot, but having someone act like an unhinged Quest protag was amusing to think about.
No. 129442 ID: eeb7d9

That is is a interesting way of seeing magic in the Quest. I didn't thought about it that way.

And the idea of having rare cases of multiple angels in one body sounds chaotic but interesting, like having multiple demonic runes. It could come with multiple pros and cons, making the system fair but powerful.
No. 129454 ID: 972422

Actually, I see how it could have been an issue in the original D3Quest, where Gallows had an increasingly long list of demons which he could summon with the right ingredients, as well as several different spells he could cast at will. Having that many powers at once isn't necessarily bad, but it didn't seem to fit the kind of story the author was going for; it left Gallows without a "special technique" of his own. I noticed that we were already drifting away from that as the quest went on, with him trading away his ability to summon some demons in order to power up his others, and all the other Pagans we saw tended to specialize in much narrower and more distinctive areas.

The current system is a good one. It also lets an aura user do a lot of different things, but they're all based on certain basic principles so it's still about using powers creatively, and since there's a system for developing techniques we can figure out how an opponent's skills work and plan around them.

Now that I look back, this arc with Roland learning to use his aura reminds me of that scene in the original quest where Roland was learning to use the magic that Ada's people used. It had the same concepts of harnessing his inner power and using color to visualize it, though we didn't progress much farther than that. Pagan magic seemed to be themed more around organic and monstrous creatures, like the way we cast spells by using our blood, and the way that demons tended to be oddly-shaped physical beings like the tentacles that Roland liked to summon or the demon that Gwyn uses as an arm. If I were looking for ways to distinguish it from other types of magic, I'd do something to emphasize that.

So that's what you meant long ago when you said you were keeping the "evolving" aspect of demons.

Aw man, that shit is super great. The first few arcs are kinda eh but pretty much everything else is so incredible. Death Volley being probably my favourite.

I'm going to start another quest. Possibly a short one or one I can pick up and drop when I feel like, but I'm not giving up on D3. I'm just curious about doing a different quest.
No. 129654 ID: eeb7d9

Cool. What's it about? Can you give us a sneak peek? Also, why do quest authors keep making new quests when they have other quests on going? I never understood that.
No. 129656 ID: a451fc

I couldn't tell you why others do it, but I did it because I had an idea for another one and I wanted to try it.

Ah... How didn't i see that?
No. 129687 ID: 12d426

What you really should do is tie them both together somehow, probably with Chunk going into D3. Dont ask me how, cuz i have no fucking clue, but it would be cool nevertheless.

I like the art style of Chunk btw. It reminds me a lot of Fortuna.
No. 129688 ID: 3ce3ca

I wouldn't say that's necessary, the Chunk can be its own thing. Although that could just be me and my dislike of crossovers.
No. 129689 ID: 8d5b51

That'd be pretty difficult, considering the earth has kinda been ripped apart. I guess I could see Chunkquest being set in the far future of D3, after *something* happened, but i don't think it would feel very natural for that hypothetical connection to become relevant to either of the stories' plots, outside of just some minor reference.
(Also Fortuna good)

Is Heretic taking a break right now, or is there something I'm missing? I recently caught up with Slight Return, and it and Chunk Quest are some of the best stuff on this forum at the moment.
No. 131114 ID: 91ee5f

Heretic started slowing down once school started up, so I’m just going to blame school for the lack of updates.

I’m sure he’ll come back once he gets that under control.
No. 131117 ID: eeb7d9

Man, school sucks...
No. 131186 ID: eeb7d9

Yay! Heretic is back, baby!
No. 131292 ID: 8fb3ba

Okay so, school has been a part of the lack of updates but that's not really all of it. I'm not swamped with work or anything, the big issue is more internal. A general lack of energy due to personal problems, and the fact that I can never stick with one idea for long, an issue that's been getting worse. I still plan on trying to continue D3 but it might be a bit slow, I'm also interested in doing other quests, maybe smaller, when I feel like it. Maybe doing other ones will help with my motivation.
No. 131362 ID: ce39da

Do you mean like Chunk Quest? I find that bouncing back and forth between two or three ideas helps if powering through doesn't work. Not that trying to power through it anyway even if you aren't motivated isn't the first thing you should try. Take it from me; I'm doing NaNoWriMo and it's been... "fun" so far.

Her, Heretic. I don't know if you hace a QD for Solrg, But i had a question. How does Intelligence exactly works in the quest?
No. 131554 ID: 8fb3ba

I should make one shouldn't I? Intelligence checks come up against threats that would weaken or harm your mind, deceive you, or confuse you. Certain things can't be achieved with low intelligence at all. Does that make sense?
No. 132069 ID: 8fb3ba

So, there's going to be an art change. Maybe smaller or big, depends on how I feel. Also a small writing change, everything was in second person before for the characters, now it's in third person.
No. 132073 ID: 996d42

I like the first change! ANd i don't mind the second one. Glad to have you back.

ok i just want to say that this new quest is very good, and while i expect the other shoe to drop and for the story to just entirely shift away from where it's heading at some point, if you actually end up making an adventure about sburb (or some game like sburb) here, on questden, while continuing to take commands, i will be flabbergasted and amazed, and i will support it at every step.

The Song of Roland- A song written about a Frankish knight of the same name, and nephew to king Charlemange. This version just has such a western sound to it, somehow it just works.


Also if Roland in D3 ever does get a battle horn like the one in the legend, it should summon a horde of demons to aid him.

nah I'd say the fact the guy running it said he wasn't gonna return to it (>>136311) and the quest's been graveyarded for years and this questdis thread was dead for at least a year until you brought it back from the dead means an update is coming any day now, for sure, for sure

yes it's dead
