So... what's to stop us from using the information we gain in these hero's minds to deliberately undermine them by reporting back to Muschio?

Hell, with proper timing we could lead them into an ambush.. perhaps Muschio's true power and influence is coming to the fore.

But Muschio should watch out... if he should loose favor with the orb we can easily have him deposed via such underhanded methods. His own greatest enemy so to speak.
No. 6258 ID: 7eda8b

I'm liking this, except for how he tends to pick long, awkward dialogue suggestions. The main character is neat looking.

So, will this be continued in Knight Blades 2, or will these guys be the next baddies in Dive Quest?

>So... what's to stop us from using the information we gain in these hero's minds to deliberately undermine them by reporting back to Muschio?
I don't know about Ridder but personally I'm gonna just have Muschio outright ignore any metagaming.

>I'm liking this, except for how he tends to pick long, awkward dialogue suggestions.
I dunno I think all his dialog was quite fitting except that one time he went on and on, but even that seemed appropriately in-character. What did you want him to say?

This sounds like this is going to lead in to some wacky Weaver/Reaver double team quest. And that sounds like it has a great deal of potential to be A-FUCKING-MAZING.

That was the one part that just kinda bugged me. He was so polite before that. I'm hoping either he joins up with Muschio, since Boss is kind of a noble evil, or it goes all Dorf Quest and he leads an army against him for the glory of his father. Either way, awesome will ensue.

That's oddly true. Muschio is relatively nice for the devil. Even as he does good things to achieve 'bad goals' he seems to be making more order that cahos recently

Ridder, on the other hand, is creating a bunch of schisms all around by accident. And pissing people off.
No. 6502 ID: dda9dd

This could change all with Muschio's most recent declaration of intent...

You know? I wonder if Finesse is really okay with Muschio being truly wicked as opposed to being somewhat melodramatic?

We've seen parts of her past and while she 'claims' she is 'has no personal stake in the matter" I think there could be a problem (as despite the saying.. it isn't generally the evil that girls what in the 'bad boys'...)

She admire his drive... and likely still associates him with the noble acts of his family so long ago. If he discards his nobility... what then?

That could happen too... I am just consider what/who it was/is that ultimately prevents Muschio from ruling most of world as "The Supreme Master of Wickedness... and Peculiar Halfbreed Progeny" (a duel title 'we' already know ultimately falls into bolder hands than his, within less than century.)

Ultimately he is going to fail or be turned aside from his quest. I am merely attempting to guess as to what will be his ruin; the blade, the pen, time, his own madness?... or perhaps even that most terrible of all powers, love?

Would it be safe to say that while he is no stranger to the rites and fires of passion, he has not yet been broken upon the unyielding stone of love?

Erm... he seems to be shrugging off his sexual and mental desires often... even the ones we give him.

but this begs the question

Muschio is of the bloodline. When Ridder sees his enemy, the choice will have to be made.

This will make Ridder either one of the evil, or a revolutionary. So Ridder's final phycological state depends on the situation of his first encounter.

Realistically, his downfall will be on his own choosing. All people fall eventually.

We screwed up by treating Tim and Sticks as minions instead of party members. We should've decided to take them everywhere with us at least until we had a militia of some kind. Then Tim could train them while we go out with Sticks to do whatever. It's not like there was anything to protect in our 'base' that we couldn't have brought with us everywhere.

Ridder was definitely getting ahead of himself by even making plans to convert the church into a base. It really should've been a hideout at most.

We were nudged in that direction by the quest's author, of course. It's rather clever what he did; Ridder's desire to fortify the base put us in the mindset of a dungeon master, which pissed all the other NPCs off. Tim and Sticks got bored just standing around the base doing nothing, and the rebel lady got angry because a Malto planted his banner at the church.

Well, at least Ridder has a mount now! He did say he was trained for mounted combat.

No. 6990 ID: 552969

Reminds me of the art from Final Fantasy Tactics.

Not overtly so. Only real oddity I see is the way the chest plates overlap upward, which isn't something I've seen on real armor, but it makes some sense on a cavalier, as it allows for greater torsion. Doesn't really seem consistent with the use of a spear, but whatever.
No. 6992 ID: af3e6d

No. 6993 ID: ba876e

Try to guide the lines that go through the center of the breastplace and compare them with the lines that define the edges of the armour. You will notice that the way the armor is drawn is totally off, making Ridder look like he's about to fall back rather than stand. Pauldrons look very off as well, again - their perspective makes it look like Ridder is leaning towards the audience and it's about to fall in that direction.
No. 6997 ID: 552969

I see what you're saying, about perspective, except your key point is wrong because he doesn't look like he's falling at all. He looks quite balanced, and if you pay attention to the shapes and positions of things, you'll notice that everything actually works out quite nicely.

Anyhow, it seems even our usual task of creating love has become somewhat harder than it usually is. Ridder's and Sticks' encounter has left him rather worse for wear (a lot of that previous fire in his eyes is faded and worn.) As for Sticks, while she seems to have come out better from it, she isn't exactly into the whole 'romance' thing beyond it's purest physicality.

It occurs to me only now but have the Voices/Orb ever really had to work to make a relationship work once such physical contact has been established? I can think of only one previous example, Mudy (and boy was making that work hellacious.)

It seems that while we are prememenant matchmakers, we don't actually have much experience in the whole relationship working thing beyond: make friendly, spend time together, screw like rabbits...

I am mentioning this because we will presumable have some time before Sticks and Ridder meet face to face again and we have somewhat established where they stand on the mater. Sticks in noncommittal though infatuated, while Ridder feels committed, yet would have preferred someone rather more... 'idealistic? honorable perhaps?"

It would be in our favor to discuss future planning and what exactly we intend to do (if anything) before we do it.

Our primary difficulty is this fact, contrary to popular theory, opposites do not actually attract. People tend to those people who vindicate their own viewpoints and lifestyles instead of ones who rock it.

As for making a relationship work beyond attraction, well, this is picture is kinda what we're looking at. Neither of them are technically 'in love', they just have perhaps one or two of the components necessary.
No. 7566 ID: 7139d7

Thanks! I've kind been debating posting something like this. We really should decide who we want to get togeather in this thing, if anyone.

Romance wise, I don't like Sticks. She seems too jaded. I suggest we need to find her somebody she likes and somebody she can be open with. She's quite the yoai fangirl, so maybe a guy who likes lesbians? I don't know, blue skying here. Anyway, Sticks so much a tease and plays a much better role as a tease then an actual romantic partner that I'd rather just leave her as a free agent for now. I haven't seen anyone she's compatiable with, and having her trying to get all the boys in bed with each other is funny as hell.

Personally, I actually do favor Ridder and Muschio for tragic and humor (Mostly because Muschio is the world's most evil spazz, and Ridder has a white knight complex you can see coming for miles away that will eventually turn evil, if only because we're the voices in his head), although I want the boss to get with Finnie so bad. Ridder and Black Fang would work, I think. Needing to fight the Rainbow Fangs with Black Fang helping us will be intresting.
No. 7570 ID: e024d0

See the thing here is is that honestly Sticks is about as good a choice for Ridder, as Muschio is for Finesse (actually that's a lie, Stick's should not be compared down to a bastard like Muschio despite her flighty nature). Finnie deserves rather better and may only like the guy because she's build up this insulated fantasy around him because of his family's past nobility. She can't afford not to like him because otherwise all of her time, all of her life's work to get noticed, to be successful... was meaningless. She never may have really expected, but when Fate/We dropped a curveball in her lap like she could have never caught on her own she has clung to it an will not let go to save her life. I only want to see Muschio get a good end, not for his sake, but for her's alone. If he... if he fucks up the 'only' GOOD thing he has going for him, my pent up wrath and spite will drop on him like a load of lead bricks!

Thus if we admit the validity of Finnie and Muschio we are almost forced to stay open to the validity of the the rather less precarious Sticks and Ridder.

See part of the problem is that both Sticks and Ridder believe in the love at first sight "I will know I want to be with this person forevern'evers, ect, ect."

That isn't how love works, it would be a lot easier if it was, but it isn't. Consider the fact that countries with arranged marriages often have higher satisfaction down the road than ones where your expected to start out in Romantic or Fatuous Love and simply stay there happily.

One of the key components 'both' of them are missing here is Intimacy. Intimacy is built only through one way... being together, you love those you are around, those you do things for (not necessarily those who do things for you note), people you know and understand. At this moment I doubt Ridder or Sticks could name each-other's favorite food, or how they like their coffee in the morning, much less their life goals or values are (if they even know themselves.)

These are the same voices as the ones from Dive, right?

Ergo, the voices speak to both Ridder and Muschio, and know everything from both Quests.

What's stopping the voices from divulging information to either one about the other?
No. 7587 ID: e024d0

The voices are time-severed? There all all kinds or reasons, but the actual reason is that Reaver and Weaver want to keep this stuff in-character.

Ridder doesn't have an Orb... he just hears the Voices (not that Finnie wasn't doing this while she was young but still.)
No. 7588 ID: 409116

No, they are not the same voices. Muschio's come from the part of himself he placed inside the orb, and Ridder's... well, we don't really know where Ridder's come from. The ring just allows the voices to talk to people other than Ridder.

But the point is that they're not supposed to be the same voices.
No. 7591 ID: e0499d

for all we know... Ridder could have accidentally managed to get a shard in him by accident in that random town...

But the consquences would probably be brutal
No. 7592 ID: e024d0

As our contact with young Finnie shows, the Shards nor the Orb are not necessary to speak with us (she called us Mojo then, and mentioned we sound just like the Lord Volto.)

However, It would be quite unsporting of us as the Echos of Fate to share such data and thus we shall not (and Weaver won't take it even if you 'do' post it.)
No. 7593 ID: 5d5878

Pretty sure any incriminating info we feed in either quest will just be ignored anyway.
No. 7606 ID: db9957

I'm not entirely convinced with this idea that Muschio would leave an overpowering aura of horrific evil everywhere he goes. He's really bad at this whole evil thing. My guess: It's either the orb or a "real" evil wandering around, somehow connected with the knight blades or whoever hired the fangs to kill them. Probably the orb, given Muschio's vague statements about the circumstances under which he acquired it.

No, the evil was external, it was just in his testicles.

I think his earnest attempts at evil store up Chaos Karma or something- nothing evil came of his intentions for a long while, then the mess with the city.
No. 7707 ID: 7ea1ff

Perhaps we are one of Muschio's testicles.

We're definitely proud. We haven't had a whole lot of need for envy, but we tend to take anything we want, so that's at least greed, and arguably envy as well. We're not really given to wrath, though we do indulge in it in extreme instances. We never do anything ourselves, and most of us probably wouldn't even if we could, so that's sloth.

A couple are stretching, but we're definitely sinful. If we tried to do the same thing with the cardinal virtues, we'd have a much harder time.

Orb of Infinite Psyche

Psyche was a mortal woman so beautiful that Eros (the son of Venus) was enthralled with her and took her away to marry (after being told by his mother to kill her.) She was made to promise that she would never attempt to see his face.

After being convinced by her sisters that her husband must be some kind of monster she disobeyed his wishes and took a lamp to see him, she fell hopelessly in love with him but he awoke and flew away.

She in revenge tricked her sisters into jumping off a cliff, and proceeded to go on a series of quests to win back her love (directed by Venus) culminating in a descent to the Underworld to beg for some beauty from Persephone as gift for Venus.

She failed this final task, but Eros returned to her and lifted her our of the Underworld and is taken to Olympus to drink Ambrosia and become one of the gods. They have a daughter named Voluptus (pleasure.)

Their story is one of the few of faithful love in the entire Greek Pantheon, despite being considered on the folk tale level of canon.

Perhaps this story bears no relevance, but I find it significant that Muschio may be incapable of love and many of the better emotions. Remember that a great many terrible and mad things are done for love.

We could've saved him if we had gotten Ridder to stay behind with Iesgip, probably. He would've been badly wounded anyway, and Grey/Yellow would've put up more of a fight at their base though.

We screwed up twice. Once when failing to notice that a dead creature next to a campfire means there's people nearby, and another when we left the wounded behind to go chase after a fleeing enemy.

You know... if I had made a bet as to which one would violate their relationship first... I would be out of some cash right now.

Not that Sticks is likely to be particularly hurt over it (although one should note that she tends to put guys with other guys, not other girls, specifics can be very important in relationships.) I just know that this isn't isn't how Ridder would prefer to handle his diplomacy (being willing to do something doesn't mean that one "wants" too).

What saddens me is that I am not really seeing a "good" end for Ridder at this time. Even if he militarily wins against the "Boss" he will be made a dead man walking by the knowledge of what he has done and what he sacrificed to do it... nothing left but a dried up husk of empty pretensions and tactical training.

Also... on a lighter note I find it hilariously ironic that Ridder is apparently everything Dompag wishes he was as a mere addition to his character and talents (and considering the song that Weaver said inspired Dompag, I reserve doubts about his actual... "conquests.") Hell, its even something Ridder's struggled to avoid but he does it effortlessly, while Dompag has made it the sum of his nature.

He created us to serve as his kind of council I suppose.

But to me it seems that we are also a blame shifting device, he likes to follow orders and part of that may be because he isn't as responsible for his actions when "just following orders."

Ridder has the worrying capacity to do almost anything (for a short while) because he can simply detach himself from his emotions and desires.

Even Muschio was incapable of proceeding with Arabella until they had formed some kind of bond (and exercised what I suspect to be his power and control fetish) but Ridder, no such barrier.

To work off the anime comparisons in a way I can see him as a kind of critique of the Buddhist warrior-hero ideals, detached, yet just, dispassionate yet caring.

Hey guys,
The current chapter is getting a lot of confusion, so I'll try to clear things up.
The last chapter there were a lot of suggestions asking to get in Grey's mind to understand her better. Therefor, this chapter is about uncovering Grey's troubled past, through her flashbacks and well-put questions.
There were a few very good questions, that led to more of her flashback being unlocked.
However, most suggestions seemed to be of a 'You are thinking wrong and should think like this' kind, which is a terrible way for a psychologist to work, so those were ignored.
The flashbacks have now come to an end and reveal that her obsession with fire began when her house was burned down. It is some sort of Stockholm syndrome with fire. In the last image she is holding her brother to keep him from being burned, hence he is 'cheating' and is not really the fire's friend like she considers herself to be.
Now that her past and problems have been revealed, you can work on having her face the issues and hopefully draw her out of the though-pattern she build to defend herself from pain at loss or fear.
So, good luck. Next time something like this happens I'll just break the suspension of make-believe to make an explanation post at the beginning.

Thanks to Weaver for helping me figure out how to deal with this, and apologies to those I got into fights with about this.

Perhaps, but I am under the impression that Reaver's quite capable of having given her attractive breasts without quite that body size.

But then, the picture as a whole seems a little odd to me because more detail has been given to the bodies than the heads, creating the slight impression of a mismatch. The extra shading and lines makes them look more "rough", whereas in the normal course of things a person's head, being more exposed to the elements, picks up small details and lines more quickly than their body.

She is... note that when we told her about Ridder wanting a woman for a family... but not a family right, now she immediately came to the conclusion that the entire contest was ineffective.

Also... drive and self-discipline can make up for even a sub-par intelligence and if there is anything Iesgip has it's those two attributes.

But it's fun. Atleast for one part most of the time.

Anyway, I had an idea for Ridders next big quest after Mushio visits him. Ridder could mount an expedition to go and save some Gnolls. They have after all been wandering around in a desert for a couple of years after the Paladins decided that ethnic cleansing for Lebensraum was a good idea.

So Ridder could get out there with some faithful chums and find some gnolls to give some living space. If they keep to the edges of the forest they shouldn't have problems with the elfs and there seems to be nobody else to worry about in the immediate area.

It also sets the stage for a nice conflict between Ridder and the Paladins that could generate alot of worthwhile drama.

>Anyone else feel like Reaver needs a side project until Dive quest can catch up?
I don't think it's absolutely necessary - Knight Blades has more content, certainly, but much of it is just day-to-day interaction. And time passing is never explicitly quantified, so we don't need to worry about small breaks. In essence, though, this means that Reaver's ability to run the quest while waiting for Dive is limited by his ability and willingness to get away from higher adventure, and become more banal. Considering the Romanticars, I'd say that this is not too much of a limitation.

Of course, that's not to say that a different type of thing wouldn't be cool too.

I hate sheep all dressed alike with no room for personal preference or role type.

How about each member design their own armor to their style but have an overall design that is shared amongst armor. (same type joints, same chain link size and color, similar embelishments (pick one to put on all the armors: frilly, leaf, demon, etc.), same coloring for the banner/tabard/logo.

I'm thinking strictly utilitarian stuff. Aesthetics cannot infringe upon the ability to function well. If you can change the look without affecting the function in a signotable* way, then that is ok.

I'm relatively new to TGchan, I found it in a thread over on 7chan like a month or so ago, Tgchan has turned me into a fucking night owl. I loved reading Ruby Quest and yes it was my first, after I read it I found MSPA and devoured his archive and all the good forum adventures, then I found what-do-you-do.com and thats kinda cool. then I looked into weaver and devoured Dive Quest and then found out there was a tie in (Knights Quest, duh) and god I just fucking love this place.

Anyway... I'm planning on creating an adventure and I'm working on story with a friend of mine, I have a lot of experience with rpgs and he maintains his own already, (Not online, with friends, but its his own creation, I'm pretty capable but that's really just his calling) and, while I have some basics up and made any help would be welcomed, Its mainly mine and his project of course.

Id recommend you lurk here. You've read, what 2 quests? Just make sure you understand that you won't get Ruby/Dive/KB suggestions when you first post and don't get discouraged.

I quickly learned that running a quest is not very much like running a tabletop game. There are similarities, and of course, if you're creative and a good storyteller, that's going to be invaluable, but there are a lot of things that are different too.

This is the best "so you want to do a quest" thread imo. Some of the advice won't apply because you have read some stuff here, but other advice is good. http://tgchan.org/kusaba/questdis/res/318157.html
No. 13738 ID: 897aba

Reading more quests will give you a better idea of what make a good quest and what makes a bad quest. It wouldn't hurt to ask people which quests to read; it will point out some older ones you may have missed, and give you an idea of what everyone likes.

Note that running a quest is somewhere between running a role-playing game and playing something like Zork. On the one hand, you have lots of people who ultimately want to do their own thing, explore at their own leisure and do stuff in their own order. You'll want multiple possible solutions for any problems and be open to unique ideas from players. No blue door-blue key, unless you don't mind the players trying to tunnel through the walls as a solution.

On the other hand, most quest protagonists aren't as fleshed out as most RPG protagonists. Your players won't take hours building a motivational, in-depth backstory to someone that everyone else controls. It is frequent that the protagonist either already has a backstory and motivations for the players to follow (Shoujen, DiveQuest, Knight Blades) or the protagonist is a blank slate that has an obvious problem in need of fixing (RubyQuest, NanQuest). You'll probably want to consider what you expect the players to do in a quest; a blank character in a blank room won't get many interesting suggestions.

I also note that adding a second character to interact with normally increases participation. Well, adding an interesting second character.

Reaver always did say he preferred less epic stories and high action (despite his skill in said categories) in favor of something more down to earth. However, I must say that there is a real dearth of suggestions along the more awesome lines in all quests. I myself would love more tactically detailed and ass-kicking suggestions in my quest.

Perhaps it's a case of give and take? A feedback cycle in which the more effort, detail, or emotion a suggester puts into their suggestions (this doesn't mean a multi-paragraph long post) the more motivated the quester will be to make the quest 'sufficiently awesome', which should motivate more awesome suggestions?

Either way, good that this quest is back. I know a lot of people enjoyed it, and it would have been a shame to see so many let down.

Saw the first few images and thought it was an elaborate troll.

I'm still not sure it isn't.

You, Sir, are not far from the truth. It indeed is an elaborate troll.

Yet, the author is Reaver.

>complaining about 'internet drama' in a dramatic way on the internet
Ah, for such delicious irony, I can see why Reaver does this sort of thing. Seeing people impotently flip out time after time is just too amusing.
Quest was on hold. Quest is back. Chill.

"To elaborate", the verb, is to add detail to a description of something. "I elaborated on my plan". "Elaborate", as an adjective, describes something as being detailed or complicated. "My plan is as elaborate as it is devious".

The use is valid.

Valid, but not really very accurate.

'Ey mang, dem pitchers's purdy. If I want to call it an elaborate troll because I initially thought someone mimicked Reaver's style to make us think the quest had risen from the grave, then I damn well will.
No. 18627 ID: 2fa60a

You seem like the kind of people that would call /b/ clever, original and intellectual. Then again, a Somali might call eating every day "epic excess", so perhaps it is simply a matter of perspective.

guys, guys, fuck, guys, quit the drama. There is a major event happening in diveverse right now, and you're all squabbling about internet drama. HERE is some drama: Muschio and Ridder are having their heart-to-heart. This will change EVERYTHING. So shut up and talk about it. Talk about what will happen if they can't see eye to eye, or what they could achieve fully united. Talk about how this will change the plans to deal with Grey Fang. Discuss The Quest

If Ridder goes against Muschio, he'll destroy his own self.
If he goes with Muschio, he'll be better off even if they lose and die horribly.

Also, hopefully tits.

I think the only way to get good end for both of them is for Ridder to convince Muschio to try to gain a new kingdom with more moral practices. He's already been considering it.
No. 18637 ID: 5a2e05

I'm just waiting for Ridder to fall and take some levels in Blackguard. And he isn't even a paladin.
No. 18639 ID: 1a99f0

Also, the idea of giving Muschio the ring seems pretty cool, but unless Muschio passed Ridder the orb, something bad may happen. I fear the potential destruction of the universe were someone to have both sets of voices at the same time.

my guess is it'd end up making a feedback loop and muschio's head would pop like the dude's from Scanners

yeah we probably don't want that
No. 18723 ID: 45be60

on the other hand, it would solve the whole "my best friend is evil" quandary.
No. 18726 ID: 5a2e05

But it'd be replaced by "my best friend was evil but isn't now because he's too busy being dead".
No. 18727 ID: 1a99f0

but then there's the "i killed my best friend with a dimensional rift" quandry. and you just KNOW Ridder would whine about that for like forever.

Or it'd be a simple mind bond cause we're taking on two seperate mental entities who combine....

So it's a great reunion, now? I wonder what will happen to the DiveQuest characters.

Trying to be the badguy (and failing mostly) has been quite amusing. I'm interested to see where this'll head.
