Looks like we're getting a curvy boy.
But can the fourth one, the one with varkian dna, be a girl presenting penis? Cause the engineers are like "they're a different species and genetics is hard!".

I'll preface this post by saying that I'm okay with the result of the poll. I liked some over others, but they were all alright in my view.

What I wanted to write is that this poll is a small example if how a poll where the most votes for a single option wins tends to result in a less satisfactory outcome for more of the voters when there's more than two choices. That was a rather long winded way of saying that, as of this moment, the number of votes not for a femmy guy with wide hips is more than those in favor (19 to 12,) so a majority of voters will get what was either not their first choice or what they didn't want. A better voting system would have been a ranked choice vote with instant runoff to get the result that was most acceptable to the most voters.

Alright, that's enough shoehorning my interest in voting systems into Kaktus' quest discussion. ...For now.

The poll is very close indeed.
Maybe you should just go with whatever you want, Kaktus.

>What I wanted to write is that this poll is a small example of how a poll where the most votes for a single option wins tends to result in a less satisfactory outcome for more of the voters when there's more than two choices.
The poll was less about who’s going to win and more about gauging interest in character concepts for the quest… and seeing that, after a week when the poll was supposed to close, the score was 12, 11 and 10 it’s quite clear that people are interested in all three of them. Of course, this instead creates the problem of having too many concepts to work with…

>Maybe you should just go with whatever you want, Kaktus.
What I want is all three… but what I don’t want is seven controllable characters in the next thread.
>I was hoping the two losing options would be combined and we'd get a cyborg or robot gal with a dick and balls.
I don’t think I want to combine them, at least not those two options in particular. I have been considering combining Bayard and Dad number 2 I posted earlier in this thread though, as both of them really is the same character archetype, even though I didn’t actually manage to go far enough with Bayard. So I was thinking giving Bayard a bigger belly and some beefier arms the next thread, to make him more of the dad people seem to want, and then introducing the three vote options as breeder 4, 5 and 6. What are people’s thoughts about that? Good idea? Bad idea?
>or full herm, but I have a feeling that'd be too much to wish for.
Well, if people want to see a lady with a large, round belly make other ladies get large, round bellies, who am I to stop them?

And one last thing, something that I really should have thought about sooner: Do anyone have any suggestions for user names / comments for the stream chat in the quest?

I did try that, but large majority of people in the quest doesn’t have a name or a comment that would really fit. I did use some discord names, though slightly changed… but it seems like I might have changed them too much as no one noticed them.
>You mean ones that we will control, or the ones that you will control? We can control the other breeders?
If this quest ever gets a second thread, then the main gimmick will probably be that you can play as any of them, yes.

>Hmm, you could put up another poll, asking what everyone's least favorite option is amongst the three. Then you can use data from both polls to come to a decision?
Yeah, no, let’s not do more polls. One is enough.
>That's a good idea. It'll let you use all of the ideas from the poll without giving you too many playable characters to have to worry about.
Well, people seem to think it’s a good idea… or at least not a horrid one so far. But it’s not set in stone yet. I’ll probably introduce the curvy boy soon, but after that… we’ll see…

I think the important part is the personalities play off each other well. They are a team after all. If it's easy enough to do, try to organize them as the classic Five Man Band: Leader, Rival, Carryer, Thinker, Heart. Plus a Transfer, to maintain continuity.

I'm in support of this!

And you know what I think would be funny about this? What I think would be funny is after bulking up, Bayard ends up being stronger than Zaton. I just think that because Zaton always thinks he's hot shit, it'd be hilarious that he'd end up getting so confused on how Bayard can be stronger than him!

So. Um. Having heretible cybernetics that grow along with the fetus/baby/child/teenager as they grow into adulthood is *not* an implausible technology! Even if it requires some sort of nanotechnology, a lot of the crazy biological stuff already shown in the quest uses very similar sorts of technology to what would be needed. And sure, you might need a specialized diet with more metals in it to grow them properly, but it'd certainly be possible! Then again -- she's probably not an expert on this...

Some more stuff from me FWIW.

Too early to sell out Lizard Dad as protag*. He`s interesting to RP because people want to RP as a Dad, but his society`s gender norms and dominant sexes are flipped. We have to reconcile that.
It's certainly inspiring me to headcanon lizardmen to have pregnancy fetishes, not necessary breeding fetishes, to maintain loyalty to the alpha female. Maybe that's just me.

* though it would be funny if she turned out to be the most domestic-minded of the team. Her arc could be kiting out her room, as well as her womb.

But it won't be sudden. It'll happen over the course of a few months in the quest. Bayard isn't going to go to bed and then wake up the next day looking different!

Welp, so much for hoping that everyone would vote the same and make it simple. I guess I need to figure out another way to do this then. Bayard will stay mostly the same for now and I’ll see if I can get the muscle gut archetype into the quest without adding to many males.
>But it won't be sudden. It'll happen over the course of a few months in the quest.
Well, it was going to be only a few days, but with all the weird technology these guys have…

>I think the important part is the personalities play off each other well. They are a team after all. If it's easy enough to do, try to organize them as the classic Five Man Band: Leader, Rival, Carryer, Thinker, Heart. Plus a Transfer, to maintain continuity.
Isn’t the five man band: Leader, Lancer, smart guy, big guy and the chick? But yes, they are definitely going to have different personalities, don’t you worry. So… probably something like this?
Leader: Bayard.
Lancer: Zaton.
Smart guy: Robot.
Big guy: Gal.
Chick: Curvy.
Heart: Fiver.

>Then, I'd recommend not introducing the Transfer until that thread.
Most of the new breeders will be introduced next thread (or maybe in an intermission, I don’t know) as they don’t really add anything to the quest just yet. Also, you don’t need to worry, there will be a reason why there are six of them.
>Let me guess: he's complete with bird dick?
There’s a possibility, yes.

>Having heritable cybernetics that grow along with the fetus/baby/child/teenager as they grow into adulthood is *not* an implausible technology!

Athena is definitely not an expert on the subject, so you’re probably going to have to go to the science department if you want to figure out stuff like that.

I would definitely have used that clip for inspiration for better lyrics if it wasn’t for it being posted about two months after that update, because JoCat’s singing is darn cute. Instead, I got the idea from Berd’s animation on the original song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lLxq7CFuKKE

I mean, you don't have to. We've already made our votes and most of us are in favor of Bayard getting a muscle gut to fill out that archetype. Meanwhile, there's only two or three votes against it.

I think it's safe to say that muscle gut Bayard is what most want to happen.

I'm excited to see the quest return! But at the same time, I'm also worried that the problems from before are also going to come back.

One of the problems is that it felt like it takes us 12 to 15 updates to do a single action.

Another thing is that we made very little progress in the story and anytime we tried to do something, you unfairly threw things at us that prevented us from making any progress.

I understand that it's supposed to be a challenge to do things, but this time around, could you please not throw too many things at us all at once?

The wiki counts the Prologue as thread 1, where it’s more like thread 0. So by the numbering system I’m using, this is thread 5 :V

>The problems are that it felt like it takes us 12 to 15 updates to do a single action. We made very little progress in the story and anytime we tried to do something, you unfairly threw things at us that prevented us from making any progress.
It was rather noticeable how much I bloated the quest when I went back to get an overview of it, though I think it was because I wanted the quest last for a long time/ always have some kind of challenge for the suggester to solve every update. Hopefully, as I’m aiming to finish this quest in a timely manner now, I’ll keep myself from doing the same mistake again.
