Hey everyone! I figured it was time to make one of these.

I'm glad we're receiving such a positive turnout to our new quest! I hope we all have a great time with this.

I should point out that my artist does have a work schedule, and lives in Germany to boot, so can only draw so often. We'll do our best, but be patient with us.

Did anyone have questions?

Wow, suddenly - thread explosion. Note to self - controversial decisions spur audience response.

I hope you're all having fun! If me and Sime can meet up today, we might be able to get a lot of this part out of the way. I think we're both off today.

Thanks for reading, everyone! I had been looking to find a way to give the chapter a definitive ending, and after little Chrysalia is rescued seemed like a great time.

Chapter 3 will begin in a couple days or so, and will start where this one left off.

I'll see you then, unless anyone had questions.

You do a good job of showing things in the quest. I don't have any questions at least. By the way, the wolf in this instantly reminded me of Twygg. (especially with the glowing looking eyes and all) Have you ever seen it before? http://walyou.com/new-geeky-art-iv/jon-snow-3/ (zoom in a bit to see)

>65202

No, I hadn't seen that particular picture before. But I know the duo from the Game of Thrones series, and the way those eyes were drawn was purely a stylistic choice - the wolf is an albino, and should have regular, though red, eyes.

Sorry guys we're still having motivational issues in the art department! I think college stress is really getting to him, the next update has been 'close to finished' for weeks now XD Hoping the next few weeks we'll start progressing again, but we're not dead.

As you can probably tell, Legacy Quest has acquired yet another new artist - Fen. The last one may stay around for the sake me occasional entries if the current one is having problems, but he is very busy with college so I hope our new one will stick with us.

I'm sure he'll introduce himself in the next few days.

Well I decided to get off my ass and work on decoding the symbols seen in the flower images and the intro image. It's really easy due to having the corresponding plaintext for every flower image, but I found some oddities.

First off, every I is replaced with Y. Similarly, every F is replaced with P. Third, every W and V is replaced with the symbol for U.

The Moondrop text replaces every period and comma with A for some reason. Previous flower texts have symbols for periods and commas, so this might be a problem with (I presume) automated code for making the ciphertext?

There aren't any J, X, or Z present in the plaintext yet, but using what I have now, I can almost completely translate the text in the intro image:

KAERNYPE(1=probably x, for Kaernipex) ARE
MANUPACTURED PROPA(looks like - is replaced by A in this one)
ERTY OP CYNODYNE
YNSPYRANTS. MANUA
PACTURE OP HYBRD
MODELS MUST BE
GRANTED BY PERMYSA
SYON AS PER CONA
TRACTUAL OBLYGAA
TYONS.
PAYLURE TO
COMPLY UYTH YNA
SPYRANT REGULAA

It stops there. So... it was an incomplete copyright warning.

Yes. This story will (eventually) include three characters each with their own story that eventually intermingle.

The slow pacing of this has been a great frustration for me, but I have set an artistic standard for this quest that I can't match without outside artists. X_X

>>92213

You have it basically right, with only a few letters wrong. Unfortunately, when that image was made, I was not aware exactly how wonky it looked when translated, or that the cipher was bizarre and duplicated letters. Or was missing bits. The text, properly translated, is:

Kaernifex are manufactured property of Cynodyne Inspirants. Manufacture of hybrid models must be granted by permission as per contractual obligations. Failure to comply with Inspirant Regulations will result in sanction.

What any of that means is up to reader guesswork. But, I will say.

It's not exactly a copyright statement. :3

Hey, everyone!

It's time for a new artist to give this old story a try - me!

Yes, that's right. I have a tablet now, and armed with these new tools, I will be taking over this quest myself!

I'm pretty excited about it :D

Hey I just wanted to let you know I'm glad you're still giving this a shot. The art is clearly understandable which is the important part, though I'm sure you're gonna get tired of drawing trees constantly!

No. 129936 ID: 9ba167

Hey. I wanted to give a notice that this quest will soon be reviving, but more importantly, wanted to talk to people about something regarding this quest in particular and it's protagonists and characters.

When I first started writing this 7 years ago, I had a much less concrete idea about the world setting it was in and particularly the designs of the characters involved. I had a very dog-centric set of aesthetic tastes and not a whole lot of design creativity. Over the period of time where this quest was largely sitting, I had a lot of free time to develop the world and reconsider designs, learn more about what made something feel visually interesting.

And 'regular anthro dog man with some branches growing out of his back' just doesn't really meet the standards I have for design today. So, while it might be a little weird, going forward, some characters, particularly the main one, may suddenly look a bit different in body shape or general design than they used to. I can't go back and revise every piece of art made for me by the frankly massive array of artists who have worked on this quest, but I can just move forward with a look I'm more happy with. This will be sort of a 'retcon' change, and not one that I will explain in-canon in any fashion. I will just treat things as if they have always looked this way and focus on moving the story forward instead of trying to think up reasons in-character why things are different and wasting time acknowledging them.

Also, there is now a Patreon for me and Cervink's quest work. Cervink will be the new dedicated artists for all my quests that continue on this medium. There are already some patron-only rewards up, if you are interested in learning more about this world-setting!
