to clarify, the interlude is a flashback to jadis' late college days, so ~2 years before meeting evelyn

There’s been a negative comment or two from people following this quest and I just want to say:

Don’t be like that. Delight in consequences, don’t bemoan them. Trust the quest author to try to bring the story interesting places with the suggestions on offer while remaining faithful to their world building and vision for the quest. Remember that few quests will take a path entirely to your preference.

Author, keep up the good work, refine your craft, don’t be discouraged by naysays, etc. You’re doing okay!

I made the angel kill Evelyn so you would be mopey about it and not do any of your chores, giving me time to grab the last pack of cheddar cheese from the supermarket!

I delight in consequences that make sense, this is raw railroading.

Let's go over the stated consequences of the choices presented:

Cut off the angel's head: it doesn't get away, but if we can't manage the scaring of a child as a result we lose out on the string.

Consequences of throwing the angel is not scaring the kid, but the angel probably getting away. Obviously a bad idea, given this angel is able to just mind-control people and is actively going after the one person who can fix this whole mess.

We chose the former, and got the consequences of both, AND now we've lost our soul because the angel that got railroaded into getting away was able to just show up and soul-murder us, and to add insult to injury there it was ostensibly as author-doled punishment for testing the boundaries of our player choice to find a way out of the situation that didn't require A: dying, or B: fucking over Jadis.

That's just bad form as a QM.

To summarize:
Choo choo.

Jab aimed only at DSP aside, taking the silk and running would've avoided this outcome entirely, so really just poor judgement.

hey, remember that time you tried to be smug and quirky but were actually just a gigantic asshole?

yeah you did it again. also that doesn't address any of the concerns brought up in even a cryptic way, which also doesn't help matters.

Hey, not all quests are happy-go-lucky. Sometimes really bad things happen, and sometimes you make decisions that have dire consequences you didnt prepare for. Just gotta pick yourself up and make better decisions and be optimistic good things will haplen later. If you cant handle the bad, then maybe this quest isnt for you. There are many other quests for you to enjoy after all. There is no point in getting angry over one silly quest.

Im patient and willing to see where this goes and im optimistic things will be better as the story continues, keep up the good work Tippler:)(though it probably wasnt nice to bully with that post >>135066)

lets all please be respectful towards each other, author and suggestor alike. Everyone remember to read the rules https://questden.org/kusaba/news.php?p=rules mainly dont be a jerk, dont stir up drama.)

i sincerely do not mean to bully anyone and i am sorry that some light hearted teasing was interpreted that way. despite ribbing eb1fcc quite hard in the monty dis thread, i don't have any ill will towards them.


the important decision branch was in fact when Duck was tormenting aaron. i had three different tracks planned, though the head cutting one had the most short term consequences. leaving y'all on a cliffhanger was the result.

The explanation of your plan was all I wanted, and I commend your ability to back down when things aren't being taken in the way you intended.

>We got rail'd
I disagree and I reiterate: Don't be like this.

It's fair obvious there were other choices to resolving the spider thread situation (way more than two imo if suggestors had bandwagoned a good/novel approach). Had I got a post in on time I certainly would not have advocated for duckapitation (though I WAS the blender-suggestor, hello, yes, I'm a monster). I'd also say Evelyn's soul being ate'd by an angel was as much WELP, THAT HAPPENED to me as to you, but I don't - to draw a vague and imprecise parallel - get angry at those who suggested duckdeath as the best of all moves and therefore leading us to a particular consequence.

(And I also really really shouldn't throw blenders in glass houses.)

On the whole, there's not a lot of value in getting angry at a quest because things didn't resolve in the manner you wanted or expected. Nor did it end the quest - and it's hardly the first time a quest author's dropped us off on a cliffhanger - so what's there to truly be upset about? Do you really think there was objectionable levels of railroading? Your ideal options are then to stop reading or caring, or to give the situation some time to see if it's actually as bad-terrible as you think. Certainly rethink doing angry postan.

I'll shut my trap hence and apologies to Tippler for the increasing size of this stupid call-out sidetrack I've laid (choo choo, I are the railroads now). I just didn't want that discouraging note of 'this is bad quest authoring' to go uncontested 'cuz that wudn't how I saw it.

a few words on the interlude:

le interlude was basically covering everything that I thought up for pt. 1 choice options that y'all didn't choose. If you had hung out with Margot or Kibble, you would have gotten their backstories, if you had visited your sleeping body while you were a soul the first time, you would have seen Body's soul, which used to have a weird design (see attached.)

i also wanted to give a bunch of exposition more actively rather have the characters just tell evelyn everything. it helps to have the experienced character as the narrator, since she actually knows stuff about the magic world.

anyway, now that that's out of the way we can go back to the good stuff, hating duck's head
