Thought it was about time I made a combined discussion thread for all my quests.

I had in mind a bit of a Mediterranean climate but I doubt I'll be able to handle that very authentically.
No. 133908 ID: 5b93d3

Deem: "Merud, what is going on? My denizens are lazy and taking naps, and it's only noon! It couldn't be a Curse, even Alakaline is affected!"
Sleepy Alkaline: "Seeeestaaa"
Deem: "And what is this word, 'syesta', what does it mean?!"
Merud, currently animating a bed golem: "Uhh../"

Would it be funnier to have the hungover dungeon scene, or the thing where she is largely immune to dehydration penalties, and would get brittle rather than headachey?
No. 133925 ID: 5b93d3

If Deem's avatar is getting drunk... is the dungeon as a whole also getting drunk?
No. 133926 ID: 9f0903

Dammit, we just cleaned all that mess up, and now this.

It'd probably be a mistake to give us that much power. Imagine being able to do that while an adventurer is inside, and all it takes is a few beers.

Drunken Dungeon Master.

Honestly the only one I'd really find funny would be the statues.

Just in case people weren't sure: yes, Deem did slim down a bit.
No. 133999 ID: 8fab7a

I have to ask. Did the extraction process produce the requisite appropriate SCHLORP noise?
No. 134017 ID: d82849

Deem tends to be slower at doing these things than a one panel jump might imply. It's certainly one of the sounds it would have made.
No. 134334 ID: 76c934

In the interest of full disclosure, I should admit that Dungeoneer will be jumping ahead to the morning after. There's not going to be a chance to add extra input so if there's something you think might be fun to (not) see, now's your only chance.

I'd also like to see more suggestions specifically mentioning Hin, Kallia, the new golem or other characters.
No. 134372 ID: 3de9d0

Afraid I'll be away from home all week for work, so updates are on the backburner for a bit!

When I get back, going to wrap up Dungeoneer and then I think get Bloom at a natural stopping point before showing the morning after for Dungeoneer.
No. 134373 ID: 2aa5f0

whelp I hope you have a good thanksgiving... or just a pleasant weekend if you live outside of the states.
No. 134593 ID: 293539

I have been mulling over what happens for the rest of Deem's night out. I was thinking she'd offer to assist with one prank to Kallia, as her repayment for those two potions. Anything people think would be the sort of thing Kallia might get up to?
No. 134600 ID: 0fae41

Making a golem that looks like Merud to act like the town fool, to get back at him for leaving all the guild duties to her? 'Oh look at me, I'm Merud, I want to build a golem that can talk back because I'm so lonely, a-hyuk!' ...Gosh, don't you think that's kinda mean Deem?
Maybe she tries playing a prank on Hin. The bigger they are, the harder they fall. Property damage is certain. Animating a chair backwards just before she sits? Pinning something way up on her back? Egging her house?
No. 134606 ID: db14b0

I do not have a good Kallia voice, but for just pranks, does the town have many gargoyles? If they all started making stereotypical barnyard animal noises one morning, that could be a thing. And Deem could probably enchant that if Golems can't make sound.
No. 134613 ID: 38eec1

Hey now. We now know that Deem loses control when she's drunk, but I don't think she'd actually purposefully do stuff that would hurt her famuli.
No. 134652 ID: 9caba2

Painting the town red, literally.

Or maybe shifting a nearby mountain range that's visible from the town.

I have been trying to finalise what other golemetry related nonsense Deem and company got up over night. Are there any golem materials or embedded functions people think might be fun to see?
No. 134748 ID: 2aa5f0

Deem and friends came across a toy store while drunkenly wondering. They then animated all the toys and then forgot about it. Do what you will with that.
No. 134753 ID: fd3bd3

Deem made a golem out of the church organ. It likes to whistle showtunes.
No. 134754 ID: 3c23e2

Golem signage might be fun, but sign posts are the wrong shape.
If golems need to be animal-shaped, then what is up with Merud's hat?
Can you make new golem shapes viable by putting shaped containers in front of cats?
If Team Maximum Inebriation had the same idea, maybe there could be cat golems hidden around the place. They could put a cat golem inside a bottle, pull it out, have it retake the bottle shape, then put it on a shelf with the other normal bottles. Perfect for the "one of these things is not like the others" prank.
No. 134755 ID: 38eec1

>sign posts are the wrong shape
>golems need to be animal-shaped
Wait, where is this coming from? Pancake is a door-shaped golem and he works just fine.
No. 134756 ID: 0fae41

Embedded functions? A golem that has been going around teleporting people's clothes away and a golem going around putting them back on the wrong people, tearing a twinned path of chaos through town.
No. 134775 ID: 9caba2

Cup holders? Can always use those.
No. 134789 ID: 5a788d

Very inconvenient when they get into the tavern. The patrons want to hold those cups!
No. 135158 ID: 1f1b46

Hmm, it's a way off but it'd be good to see some ideas for the dungeon statues Deem made while she was drunk.
No. 135161 ID: 9a2966

Statue ideas? Sure!

- Chickens and Eggs art installation (strange and twisted statues following a clucky theme and surely not inspired by deep-seated traumas)

- The Many Phases of Reisarf & Stargazer (i.e. a wall with 'sad', 'happy', 'girl' facial-photo-booth style mugshots carved as busts of both).

- Good draggies, best draggies (two Char statues 'guarding' the entrance to the dungeon core room, lying atop a pile of stone treasures)

- Golems Being Best At Drinking (statues of golems standing around a barrel / water cooler, holding drinks)
No. 135162 ID: 9c1ef3

- The Very Conquered Sun (Deem with one foot on a sad-looking sun of some kind, flexing)
No. 135165 ID: 132458

A statue of a dancing brute golem. I call it: Saturday Night Fever Dream.
An impressive bust of Deem.
A stone bar stool, modeled off of what Deem was looking at at the time. Some of Kallia’s butt may have been in frame.
The Deem de Milo. Originally she was dabbing, but the arms fell off.

A life size statue of Gigadeem. Granted, you can only see the legs, but just you wait til she Delves further up.
No. 135172 ID: 38eec1

I really like the idea of a hidden statue that can only be revealed fully by digging it out. You could say I... dig it. I'll let myself out.

I am not actually suggesting this, but a what-if fully-expressed-demonic-side Moriko would be a conversation piece and a half.

Statues soon, but in the meantime, does anyone want to suggest what these materials Olan will provide for Deem to make something of might be?

• Ancient, completely petrified wood. Or, in the same vein, a fossil.

Pseudodragon bone (or drake bone? something within his price range, obviously dragon bone is too much)

Moon rocks, rocks, from the moon.
Crystallized roses
Great Elk antlers
Nightmare mane (like, monster horses)

What a geologist promised him was a large geode. Unbroken.
A carnivorous plant from a far away place.
Diatomic silt from the ocean floor.
A magic trinket from a traveling peddler who's function can't be discerned. (It is cursed in a way that cancels out it's function)
Dragon Bits. (The leftovers of the leftovers of a large dragon corpse)
A mystery potion. (A novice used his master's materials haphazardly. Its composition may be more useful than it's effect)

Chaos Battery: a Demon's Heart and an Angel's Skull (amount other things) are contained within a labyrinth of Gold and Sunstone. A dial adjusts the inner complexity and therefore power output. Even on it's lowest, most convoluted setting, this thing outputs dangerous amounts of mixed mana and distorts the local earth pulse in bizarre ways.
It's frankly a liability to have, Olan has probably been trying to pawn it off on my someone.

Getting things ready for the next few updates has been frustratingly slow but people might be entertained to know the two mystery crafting items most closely resemble two items from this list, as I wanted something a little difficult to work with.

In other news, I have been having some fun temporarily tinkering with character designs but I'm curious who people might feel should be the dungeon's reisdent boob monster. And (perhaps more relevantly to Ass Day) who deserves to be the thickest?
No. 138431 ID: 8483cf

I'll always vote Deem.
No. 138432 ID: 7397c3

Merud. And slightly more seriously, Reisarf's mana reservoirs should get bigger.

Alkaline. She hit a growth spurt during slime puberty and now she's a Slime Queen with large boobs.

Most definitely Deem. We love messing with her like this.
No. 138468 ID: d98cb8

Honestly I'm still catching up on Dungeoneer but I'm enjoying how thick Deem is getting, so lets go with Deem for both. She's getting a nice figure on her.
No. 138469 ID: 12044e

Alkaline For boob monster

Deem for thick
No. 138474 ID: 12044e

Cake mimic for both. If for no other reason then to confuse the cast.

>>138474 Oh my! Is the world ready for the cheesecake mimic?
No. 138488 ID: 421554

Obviously Alkaline is the thickest. She's quite proud of her viscosity, didn't you know?

More seriously, though, Moriko deserves some love, I think!

The plague years were a tough time and I keep finding splitting focus doesn't work well.

I'm hoping to get all my hiatused quests to at least more satisfying pause points (or bigger cliff hangers) this year.
No. 139164 ID: 18a0cd

Well, I'm glad to have discovered Bloom, will be checking out Dungeoneer soon. I do wanna see how far Alice can go.

Question, once she reached 100 mass she was like one and half times a person's size, right? She's currently spread out but I wonder how tall would her current body be if it wasn't spread out

Getting Bloom M<3 updated reminded me I was intending to post a little behind the scenes info on doing Garden Master Alice with tippler for April Fools.

I haven't collaborated like this before, but usually I'd write the outline for the images needed such as "Alice has a look of intense concentration" and provide some references and doodles as needed.

I should add it can be great trying to do a layout doodle for something like a commission, because it lets you work out what details do and don't work well within a panel of the size you're getting.

On a similar note, Alice already had a design but this was tippler's first drawing to confirm on the tweaks and looks she'd have for the quest thread.

File 169675401713.png - (142.79KB , 500x500 , a1a.png )

The new characters, of course did need to get designed.

For these I provided an initial description and some reference images, tippler did a concept panel and in some cases they then got a little more reworking.

Asteroid Knight
A cnidarian, an alien from Sarcopholacooda's quests.
A sort of jellyfish in a mechanical suit. Has a hulking suit that's mix of a knight's armour and an astronaut's suit.
Has a big bubble helmet, and the suit itself should be a bit bulkier than the suits in the cnidarian reference: it should look padded wherever it isn't armoured. Please do keep the tiny feet though.
His weapon is a mix of a jackhammer and a lance - it's a repurposed asteroid mining tool.

File 169675425121.png - (140.70KB , 500x500 , a1b.png )

Grav Gunner
A truclean, an alien from Sportsdrink's Big Iron quest. As you can see, fairly close to human looking, three eyes, pointy ears, three fingered hands.

Short and curvy. She has a suspicious resemblance to some other quest characters of mine for no real reason.

She wears one of those trendy skintight space suits and her main weapon's a pair of machine-gun-like weapons that they can also act as a grapple beam (think Metroid or the hookshot in zelda). They have some sort of charge up gravity bomb shot too. Don't take the suit as too close a reference, I just pulled something out of my ref folder that was a nice match for the guns.

Psi Tuner
A neumono, from Lagotrope's quests.

Has psychic powers, uses them to broadcast empathy for buffs/debuffs. Basically a space bard. Big ears. Confident, make him hot. Carries a big microphone with a crystal mic and a music speaker in the other hand. The speaker can be used as a club in a punch so make it look sturdy.

Outfit is basically some light sci-fi looking armour and pantaloons. If you have an idea for a nice hat please add one.

(Included was a reference of Lackey's circle and stripe markings from Cirr's Salikai quest)

Blaster Phoenix
A ketza, a sort of bird from Slinko's quests. Very small, about 2-3 feet tall.

Haughty, pretty bird. Make sure she has nice eyelashes.

Ketzas have fire magic but for extra blasting power this one rides a mech (making her about Asteroid Knight’s size overall). A ball body with a big turbine looking thing that it uses to shoot beams with the pilot on top. The kirby invader mechs are a good idea of the general shape.

The robot’s arms are small and the legs spindly, should make people think of a baby chicken.

(A picture of a secretary bird's eyelashes was included)

That concludes the behind the scenes look at Garden Master Alice. Hope you enjoyed!

I might as well air my frustrations.

I've gotten really tired of the seemingly-permanent... uh, size... play. I really liked the design of the characters, especially Reisarf, and it feels like suddenly everyone is gravitating to a similar design. Deem is mutable, but I don't know *how* much, and likewise, Reisarf just... changed overnight without a great deal of our input. I get that a lot of people like the thicc designs, and that was fun on Deem (who, again, we have a lot of control over? Maybe?) but I'm a little, okay, a lot worried that everyone will just balloon into a similar look and we won't ever really get to change them back. I know only two (three?) have changed this way, but I worry if I don't say anything, it'll just keep happening, and get more permanent, or no one will care to change them back, or there'll be mechanical reasons not to (like with Reisarf now) and... I like the quest, I do, but this is getting out of hand for me.

I recognize that the others probably don't feel the same way and I'll probably get called some flavor of bigot or something, but I just really wished the nice designs were kept and more characters were introduced, or even more "hey do you want this" was a question asked with more weight (no pun intended) when big character changes would occur.
