I feel the same way, wheatear it does appear I won't dislike it or if it doesn't I won't cry about its absence. As for us being lesser demons, I can roll with it.

Liking it so far though I feel it has to be said. Liked the original (farm knight was lulz) but the mechanics were too confusing to make informed decisions which is why (IMO) suggestions just stopped. So far this one does not have that issue. Here it's just following one of Sun Tzu's classic quotes. "Look strong where you are weak and look weak where you are strong."

So the first part is something like a starting point for you two and the monster queen is a time skip. So what I am wondering is just what happened between the first part and the current events?

Bobbie: "Well, originally it was probably around five encounters that were skipped and one of them being the Farmer Knight. The second opponent would have been the Goblin Genocider, this opponent wouldn't be somebody who would look for us but we would be the one confronting him. The third opponent would be a paladin, she would be seeking us. The fort opponent would be a wizard. And final opponent would have been the gorilla arms mercenary. I am still not sure what the time amount would be between all those battles but most importantly, every fight would be finished in a non-combatant way. With every successful victory, the followers would grow and more options would have been unlocked. Maybe that is why we skipped all those fights so that we started from a castle location and continued to build up from there. The whole beginning part would have been long and slow. In the current story, all those fights did happen, but even I don't know how they would have worked out."

Abdle: "Option A
Let me explain that things you see as lesser demons can be only seen by Bobbie, me, and our allies. That is why you managed to give that suggestion to Grimlith, the only limitation to this maneuver is that the allies have to be in a nearby vicinity. It is possible to even talk to the enemies of the queen but they will not be able to see you, only hear you. There is an implantation for using this to mess with the enemies but as with every tool in our arsenal timing when to use it is the important part.

Option B
This is the more what you all will do, which would be giving suggestions to the Queen during the moment of deep concentration. During this part, Bobbie and I can telepathically talk while time stops around us, that is the time when your suggestions to the queen will be heard the loudest."

Quepstion 1, my answer is 6, like the story and the characters but I still think that there can be some improvements.

Question 2, my answer is 8, I am interested in seeing where the story will go.

Question 3, my answer is 3, it felt like the battle was dragging a little bit.

Question 4, my answer is 7, enjoyed the mechanics of the battle system.

Question 5, my answer is 5, interaction during the fight felt a little bit odd in some parts.

Question 6, my answer is 5, to me it felt like 50-50 when it came to my suggestions.

Question 7, my answer is 8, I felt like I did contribute to the victory of the battle.

Question 8, my answer is 4, overall at the end it felt a little bit forced.
No. 141257 ID: c51648

1) Going with 6. Wouldn't say it's among my favs, still it beats the pants off of many quests. Which may change as the stakes go up as that engages. Just don't let them get high too fast/slow.
2) Uh... will go with 6. Like the premise though every once in a while there's moments we don't know a thing that would be obvious to the people of this place. Like that magic plague that was actually illusions. Or that Abdle can cause harm unlike Bobbie.
3) Lol typo. 1 is too short 8 is too short lol. Feels like heads I win tails you lose. Seriously though. Guessing 8 is too long so going with 6. Did drag a bit though most things felt like they had to happen so... hard to say what to remove.
4) Will go with 7. Funnily enough the mechanics felt opaque but that was no issue. Felt less game-ish to have the mechanics less obvious. Sure the patience bar was good, however that was practically need-to-know. Only complaint is... well, we'll get to that but not on this.
5) Will go with 5. Would be higher but for one big issue. We had practically decided to give up 5 gobbos to resolve this without fighting. Still, Bobbie just *had* to lose her sense and ruin it all. Felt railroaded.
6) 8. Did help that Polt saw and often backed my ingenious plans.
7) 7. However that -1 is on myself, since a few ingenious plans went sideways. Friggin' Orbital messed up my masterstroke of poison gas...
8) 3. Here's where the issue from #4 shows up. Dude convinces himself it's an illusion so hard yet gives up that conviction as soon as the gas dissipates? He kills the rebels but spares the one who instigated? Just felt off.
Oh, question for yourself. Stayed unnamed but ID changed because of rotating VPN so. Would a name help parse suggestions or is it fine as is?
No. 141268 ID: e51896

1. a 6 so far. I like this silly moments on this quest, and the idea of trying to triumph over your foes through initimidation and negotiation alone while being weak is pretty unique.

2. a 7. I like the characters and humor, and puzzles

3. a 6-7. it kinda dragged on a bit, tho, like >>141257 said, it felt like those had to happen. I think for a first fight, it could of ended 2-3 updates ago. maybe this length for this battle could have been a bit better for a later fight. I say for the next encounter, make it a bit shorter, but as we encounter stronger enemies later on, slowly make the battles a little longer

4. a 7. the multiple choices helped out quite a bit to give us ideas of what to do, while allowing us to come up with our own ideas. I like how towards the end, we were on our own. trying to figure out what to do based off of what weaknesses we found from the enemy throughout the fight to finish him off

5. 6, a little railroaded at times

6. since this is a multiple choice, and the suggestions chosen are based off of votes, this might be something more of us hearing each other more than you hearing us, so probably don't worry too much about it. That said, around a 7. though if you're worried that your suggestors are feeling like they aren't being heard, maybe from time to time you can acknowledge the spirits that choice didn't get chosen (not all the time, just sometimes)

7. 8. good work team

8. same reasons as the above suggestions. I think part of the reason why it felt forced and weird was because the middle part dragged on a bit, and you wanted to end it by rushing the ending instead of easing towards the ending.

overall, I say a 7/10 quest so far. there's improvements that are needed, but it has potential. I'm looking forward to see how it'll improve.

Greetings and thank you for participating in the survey and for following the story so far, it means a lot to me that my story is captivating you all and that you are still following it. My goal is to make my every quest feel like a completely different story. Now first things first, I want to explain some things that weren't clear because of my bad art, during the battle, nobody died all the ones who disobeyed Ramming Rage just got beaten up but they are all alive. Now on the topic of Bobbie flying off the handle, I know that two suggestions were up for that idea of giving up 5 goblins, but Poltergeist Ethanoic Acid really didn't like that idea so he contacted Harbard Grim in order to push his idea of not doing that. So it was two for giving the goblins and two against doing so and I went with Poltergeist's suggestion, he and Harbard Grim were my friends for some time and their decision was what won in the end. As for the poison gas not working, true it failed but at the same time you got something out of it Orbital was introduced and you even got a chance of getting him as your ally. As for the nameless participator, I would appreciate it if you named yourself. It is primarily so that I could eassaly see when somebody has posted in that quest, but if you are not up for it I won't force you."

>he and Harbard Grim were my friends for some time and their decision was what won in the end.

Just to be clear that was not supposed to be a negative on your side. Even the best plans can go sideways so it was a positive. Supposed to be because strategic skills can always be improved. Just tend to focus on where things can be improved even if my side wins. Focusing on success gives overconfidence. Which rage learned himself as he was overconfident with his shield's defenses.

Still feels off given we earlier poked obvious holes in his idea of it all being an illusion which just convinced him it was a mass illusion so he really seemed to believe he was fooled. Just feels odd that threats and dissipated gas broke that while obvious holes failed. Guess he was just blustering?

To be honest the backstory of the previous battles was mealy there to flash out the claim that the queen has overcome on her way to growth. I really don't know if these characters will ever appear in the story but at the same time that practically leaves their fate to your imagination. So let's make it official, what do you want their fate to be?
A) They are terrified of their experience with Bobbie.
B) They didn't survive after the battle with Bobbie.
C) They were tricked by Bobbie but they don't fear her.
D) Other suggestions.

Additional question which one of these previous opponents do you find interesting and would you like to see once again to appear in the story?
No. 141560 ID: 5ebd37

Genocider: A, For a being powered by hate to be tricked seems like Bobbie must have given it an existential crisis.
Clara: C, I like her design, it would be neat if she ended up on Bobbie's side. The "fallen" paladin that realizes their order is wrong and monsters aren't so bad is always a fun story trope.
Right Hand:B
Left Hand:C, It would be funny if just the one hand came looking for revenge.
Covario:C, This one's fight seems to have left unresolved trauma, I wouldn't be surprised if they showed up again to bring closure.

For Goblin Genocider I am going with C). To me he seemed like a immovable force, so just point it in a different direction and you win.

For Covario B), even if he is dead he left his nark on others.

The left hand of Nefleus has one point in A and C.

Covario has one point in B, C and to be seen again.

Generous offer but will have to politely decline a fleshed out being. Orbital was a surprise. Even though it was bad, quite like being surprised. Plot twists are so much sweeter if you have a few pieces of the puzzle but not enough to see the whole picture. Perhaps a concept would suffice though. Vague enough to still be unsure. Was worried about a secret test of character before. Just having the possibility will constantly challenge. How do we know if we're tested or if we waste resources on a red herring? Perhaps not having one would be the twist itself. With that level of ambiguity it will still be tough without spoiling what may yet be.

Okay, my idea for a character.

A mysterious pig vampire showed up to this world, looking to set up a fast food restaurant chain called "BURGERVANIA" within the different kingdoms of the world. Apparently, the BURGERVANIA chain did not originate from this world, but from another world entirely, and they want to expand their burger empire throughout the different universes out there after making some kind of deal with a demon from another world to help them do it, and BURGERVANIA chose the world of rotten apple as one of the many worlds to expand their business.

This pig is name Vance, and while he isn't the true owner of BURGERVANIA, he was sent here by the head CEO to spread the business to this world, and act as this world's BURGERVANIA's CEO

He is neutral and will not pick sides, as he is willing to not only expand to Bobbie's kingdom, but to the other kingdoms, including her enemies' kingdoms. Perhaps he will try to work out a deal with Bobbie to allow him to purchase some places to set up some BURGERVANIA restaurants in her kingdom and villages.

Since he's a vampire, he can only be around during the night.

No, he does not personally know w2K and they are not related. They have never met before. He only knows her as a mascot, which they will probably use her image to try to help sell their food.

Now about Vance, he is a clear connection to the other quest and I don't have a problem with that. But what I want to change a little bit is how he ended up in this world, instead of coming here it will be that he is stranded in this world and needs to create his food chain from scratch. I imagine him to act like Ray Kroc from the Founder movie.

Just something for later. I was asked to help make a special monster by Absurdity, so this is what I came up with. Don't read if you don't want spoilers.

They are an Oblex, a special type of Ooze that can change its appearance based on the memories of people it's eaten. As such, they are something of a scholar and librarian but everything they do is an imitation of actual feelings. There is always something just slightly off about them, and when they get too stressed out, panicked, etc, they return to their slime form.

I think at this moment, the reason why I'm thinking we shouldn't take the gift is because I believe the demon kid when he said that he didn't use any illusions to trick us. So if it isn't him, it's one of the others. And right now, I'm thinking it's probably Scarecrow Kid who tried to mess with us, considering he was likely staring directly at one of the lesser demons, which isn't normal. I might be a bit too paranoid, but right now, I think that gift might actually be something that could mess with us later down the line if we accept it, especially if he was the one who was causing illusions on the demon kid's arms to mess with us earlier.

Also posted this here in case Scarecrow Kid can hear us. If he can see us, he can probably hear us too.

What if not taking his gift may just anger him.

Perhaps. But it's better than just breaking it in front of him as the other other option. Pretty much why in my decision, I made it a polite decline to not hurt his feelings by saying it's too valuable to just accept, and to keep it with him for later. Can't forget that one of them is the Oblex after all >>142094
