No. 97023 ID: 408b2d


Prohibitionish era seems like it could be it. Restriction on booze, existence of power/telephone lines, but not much infrastructure in place for cars. Despite saying it in a joking tone in-thread, the lack of men could well be partially the effects of the war. A female police officer or mayor are both within the bounds of possibility for the period. The only thing that doesn't fit quite right is some of the clothes.
No. 97044 ID: f79998

Ok guys, since there seems to be an implicit goal of bagging all the ladies, and suggesters so far seem to want to, we'd better be tactical about it.

Now, if there's one thing that sexist clichés have taught me, it's that women find men more attractive when they're already involved with another woman. Since another lady's already taken the risk of scouting out the guy, and found him worthwhile enough to get involved with, it eliminates a lot of the gamble that there would be in a single guy. Leading on from there, the higher the perceived standards of the first woman, the more secure the guy appears as a romantic option.

So obviously, the first lady Charlie should get involved with is the mayor. She's the alpha female of the town, and since the quest appears to be set earlier in the 20th century, discredited social ranking theories may not actually be totally discredited yet, making them 100% true. Elementary misogynomics tells us that forming a relationship with her will instantly make Charlie about 130% more attractive to other, lower-ranked women. In the long run this will be a massive saving in mackin' time.

Bonus 1: As a high-power woman, the mayor is more likely to be an ambitious, modern lady, with forward-looking views, clear ideas of what she wants and a busy schedule. She could likely prefer a now-and-then boytoy for relief quickies to an actual boyfriend, freeing Charlie for other efforts. She may even be slack on the concept of monogamy.

Bonus 2: If she isn't slack on the concept of monogamy, her power provides an extra layer of protection. Any secondary ladies that Charlie gets with will fear her wrath.

Bonus 3: By cartoon law, snakes are the sexiest animal.

Modern day confirmed with the reveal of blogs as common knowledge of existence. When we learned of computers in the library, it could've been the 90's, it was up in the air.

Which means that the police can look us up online at ANY moment. ANY bit of suspicion will immediately lead to arrest, and ANY crime is a huge risk factor, even a small accident could lead to arrest. It's a good thing we're driving a bicycle, but we can't risk being hit by a car or going to the doctor's office until the statute of limitations for our crimes is past.

Let's just assume the mayor's content blocks also censor criminal records, because there's "criminal" in the name. :-)

I was really surprised that Susanna was able to censor the entire town's access to the internet. The school and library (and the police station as a joke) I can understand, but it sounds like she also censor's home networks too, which is REALLY weird and unheard of to me.

I know it just might be a joke, but can local governments of small towns in the US like this one actually do that?
No. 97305 ID: a6e336

Well if she's the local monopoly ISP...
No. 97307 ID: b9acc0

As far as my (not very thorough) research suggests, it would be allowed to implement content blocking in the library, school and government buildings. It has also been somewhat admitted in certain specific cases for the purpose of measures against libel, copyright infringement and child pornography, but that sort of thing is legislated on a much higher level.

Beyond those cases, it would be unlawful, being a violation of the first amendment. If the mayor's been pulling that sort of thing then she's been a bad girl.
No. 97308 ID: b4027b

I don't think it has been established what country the quest takes place in. For all we know the mayor could be the town's royally appointed supreme leader for life.

Guys, guys. I just noticed something.

The subtitle on the chapter 2 opener is "An NSFW Quest".

... Now, I always read it the abbreviation in my head as just "Not Safe For Work". Or, occasionally, "Nessfwu". Are you telling me there are people who subvocalize it to themselves as "En Ess Ef Doubleyou"?
No. 97364 ID: 36a408

I'm guessing Cletus was Ramona's husband (or, we're lucky, and that was the lover of our chicken correspondent from the school. Lucky for us, that is; not lucky for them). Unless she's REALLY old, that would mean that time isn't the same here as it is there, and that the civil happened not that long before computers, but still during the period of sepia photography.
Or, more likely, we still know nothing about Cletus and new information will completely blow this theory out of the water.

Cletus was probably Lorrain's husband, their timelines would actually line up. Rechecking the first thread, Ramona even says that Lorrain's husband died in the war.
No. 97376 ID: 36a408

Holy shit, what if we're (and by "we," I mean, "Charlemagne") related to Ramona? I mean, it's possible that the reason Cletus looked so much like us is because he's our ancestor? Better question, would that stop us?

Otherwise, it might be an implication of ghost-y Lorraine sexings in which we put her spirit to rest by giving her the hot catdick she craves. Maybe we're supposed to be her husband's replacement until she gets to heaven.

As for relations, he would probably only be distantly related since Lorraine is Ramona's Great Aunt. But I guess that's only if you assume Cletus was not as polyamorous as Chuck.

It's also quite possible that Cletus never had children with Lorraine.

While I despise the idea of incest, the genetic separation would be great enough to not really count... I hope. (Don't change your own plans based one one user's preferences, RML. If it is that, I'll deal)
No. 97382 ID: 5ea852

Speaking of incest, there might be an issue.

Ramona is a Plath. Sally is a Plath.

Unless Ramona's husband decided to take his wife's surname for whatever reason, Sally is quite possibly inbred.
No. 97383 ID: 2e716e


Well, the Plath name comes from one of the founders of the town, and a large and presumably prestigious inn bears the name, so it is conceivable that it would have been kept matrilineal.

Let's not forget that we got a confirmation that Coxwette is in the former Confederate territory.

Hey, I live in a former confederate territory. I resemble/resent that remark. (We have a ton of museums here about it too.)
No. 97395 ID: 15720c

>I resemble/resent that remark.
Resemble suggests you are inbred... What I hate about the idea, though, is the act of incest, not the status of inbred. Inbreeding has such risks of causing harmful genetic mutations, especially the more generations it's been going on, and I hate the idea of endangering life by the very act of creating it. It's a stupid paradox that shouldn't exist.

I guess it kinda depends on how you look at it? Because Naz answered the question "Are we just acting this story out?" with "No.", but instead of correcting Chuck she went ahead and explained they'd be doing more than just acting it out. Or something.

Don't see how that ruins the adventure, since at least half of the costumes are muffin-themed anyways.

I was not anticipating this much controversy over the costume decision. To clarify, I had intended for the porno to be in the muffin theme, but since readers want something different, I am willing to change plans and open up the floor for dicsussion of a new theme idea.

I am sorry for the ambiguity and the railroading.
No. 98665 ID: 1862a8

The muffin theme makes sense in context, and has the advantage of non-obviously porn porn costumes being a possibility, which should make acquiring them a lot easier.

I'm pretty sure the objection to the muffin theme comes from a place of misinterpretation believing that the characters had ruled it out, so, if anything, the general trend is towards being pro-railroad; the confusion is over which direction the train is moving. Metaphors.

I'm indifferent.

As far as I'm concerned, a paperdoll is a chance for readers to spitball ideas and have fun with it, and then for the author to pick whatever they want out of that, or assemble something out of bits and pieces. There's little to expectation that it should be controlled by majority or consensus.

Besides, you're the one who's gotta write the lewd scene coming up. Write the porn you want to write.

I've got some real /questdis/ for you all, so strap in, bois

1. So everyone saw the foggy silhouette and the weird visual blurring that happened in the woods right before we got attacked, right? Perhaps its a Percy-Jackson-esque Mist that is covering up a secret about that one Padre guy and his ilk. I'm voting that, at some point, we should take Davey/a gun and go back there to explore that area further.

2. I sincerely believe that Ramona's cooking is intentionally bad. The herbs&spices coupled with the mayor's distrust of the Plath's is most suspicious, and it's most likely why we weren't completely hypnotized by Snek Vampire. It's not like we're Ruby and we're special enough to get super powers, or at least that's my current perspective of Chuck.
The bacon, however, I'm pretty sure the reason it's there is because she actually can't cook and is trying to put something infamously delicious into into her weird potions.

3. So Davey isn't one hundred percent evil, right? I mean, it's possible that he's a rapist, but it's also possible that Mrs. Ellen is merely traumatized by whatever eldritch bullshit for which Davey needed her help. Besides, if he was staying here for purely sexual reasons, we would be his only real competitor, so he could have just let us get drained.

4. Does anyone have any theories on the tentacles of that trypophobic nightmare we just encountered? Are those graspers, injectors, or suction tubes that were left behind? There is a certain possibility that they create more of themselves by sucking the life and soul out of others until their victim has the same circular puncture wounds and wrinkled skin that is characteristic of these things. I'm thinking that the tubes work to both fill the prey with a venom that liquifies their insides and then they suck the shell dry; think of the way a spider catches food. Maybe that's why Ramona asked us how long the attack lasted, so as to properly neutralize the venom

5. Is that rabbit thief in any way related to the templar monster? Does anyone think he is one of them or could he be the Ratman/Red of this quest? What do you think he was carrying? Was he naked? Why?

So yeah, I'm fucking loving this story RML, please don't drop this. Lovecraft is my weakness, and in the old man's very own words, "The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown."
Keep at it, bud, this is fantastic.

No. 99975 ID: 595d54

1. Yeah.

2. If she actually can't cook, how is it intentionally bad? She can't make muffins or eggs either. Neither are supernatural or known for being delicious. I think she's mostly just a bad chef and the garlic, vinegar, etc. are part of local cuisine, with roots in folklore. Similarly to how Romania/Transylvania have garlic dishes because it's traditional and vampire legends started the traditions, not because modern chefs fear vampires.

3. He's not literally a man-eating abomination, which isn't saying much. But he's defensive of his daughter and he didn't let some random guy get eaten, either. I think he knows of, but not about, the weird shit in Coxwette and that's what he meant when he said the people in it weren't right.

4. There was no sign of anything being injected, just of stab wounds. I think it's more like a mosquito. The needles are proboscises and Ramona asked how long they were in to gauge blood loss.

5. Literally nobody except RML has any idea and there aren't going to be spoilers. There's not much point in speculation until we find out more.
No. 99980 ID: 0d6c82

>There was no sign of anything being injected, just of stab wounds. I think it's more like a mosquito.
Mosquitoes do inject things. They have a venom that numbs the bite (and causes itching afterwards), and the bloodsucking itself has some backwash (which is how they spread diseases).
No. 99982 ID: 595d54

True but irrelevant. Chuck displayed no symptoms of any venom or other substance being injected, and the purpose of a mosquito bite is to feed via draining blood rather than kill prey via injecting venom, which is what I was referring to.
No. 99987 ID: 635a61

To your response to #2
Yeah, I should have phrased it better. What I meant was that it's possible that she doesn't know how to make the watery, disgusting soup taste better because she can't possibly fix it no matter what she tries, but that doesn't mean she's adding the herbs and spices purely in an attempt to add flavour to it.
By "actually not a good cook," the meaning was intended to be that she couldn't make something taste all that great even if she wanted to, but she does (theoretically) know how to brew up an incredibly effective antidote or two. For "intentionally bad," what I should have said was something along the lines of it's not that she's purposefully trying making it taste bad, it's just that it's not supposed to be good tasting. Like if she simultaneously can't cook food but can create elixirs, that's humorous to me, that's an interesting character trait.
But, I will admit, it's a bit of a reach. Why would she be offended about how bad her cooking is if she the desired effect isn't its taste?
I guess I just want Ramona to be a bit more mystical than what she's letting on because I really like that trope.

Crazy WMG time:

Nelson Plath and I'm assuming the first matriarch of the Stark clan had an affair with each other. Nelson wanted to end the affair, but the first Stark refused to the point of protesting violently. She accidentally killed Nelson during one of these violent protests. In order to hide the fact that she was having an affair with Nelson, she covered up the reasoning for the murder as a hostile political takeover of the town, thus allowing the Starks to come into power. The Plaths, who were secretly a clan of powerful magic users, sent out a legion of demons/zombies/whatever to exterminate the Starks. Seeing as the current mayor is a Stark and the Plaths are now a lingering shadow of their former glory, the Starks were either a rival magic user clan, or at the very least had enough supernatural muscle to stave off the demon attacks until they occurred so infrequently its practically random chance.

While the demon attacks explained why the town is so small, as those might have scared off a good portion of the original population and might have scared away future generations from arriving, it does not explain the odd gender ratio of the town.

That would be Lorraine's fault.

When Cletus was killed during the Civil War and never came back, Lorraine was heartbroken, going into deep depression and deluding herself that Cletus would return long after her own death. Due to her refusal to move on unto Cletus came back to her, Lorraine accidentally cursed the town to forever deny all the women there to experience the love of a man until Cletus returned. While the curse is not a very strong one due to it being unintentional, it still left a big impact on the town's population, as extremely few men from the outside will ever stay there for longer than short trips, and most men who were born and raised in the town would immediately leave as soon as they were able to. If the curse was any stronger, Coxwette would be entirely populated with women, all men would be uncontrollably compelled to avoid and/or leave the town, and the results would be far more noticeable and discovered LONG ago. Right now though, there are only just enough dudes in the population to keep the town afloat.

No, that's not why.

They aren't particularly interested in Angela so they're just looking for any opportunity they can find to give up and go back to Naz's party. You can see the votes for it at multiple steps that basically come around to 'nah just tell her it's a joke and go back to the party and maybe she'll go with you???'

Giving up and leaving is, in fact, bailing out. I didn't make that up, and the thread has a bunch of suggestions to exactly that effect. Next time, try literacy.

While Your bail out rant is appropriate in this thread, as was the question as to why people shit themselves when things don't go 100% right, it didn't make sense for you to quote a general statement for your highly specific rant.

Especially since "Wanting to bail out" Doesn't necessarily have anything to do with people shitting themselves.
>bailing out... the thread has a bunch of suggestions to exactly that
Damn straight some people are going to use the situation to steer chuck away. They're not panicking, they just had no interest in seducing Angela in the first place, and are using this as an opportunity for an out from a situation they'd rather avoid.

No. 100446 ID: 398fe1

I don't care about the bird.
I do care about people turning Chuck into outright scum rather than just a lecherous sinner.

That said, what's with people assuming that to get laid with the bird we have to be the most important person in her life? SHE CAN JUST HAVE AN AFFAIR YOU KNOW. People act on lust instead of love all the time! To get with Angela we'd have to push her libido past her limits. The method with which that is done will determine how bad we feel about it afterwards, if we even accomplish it. It's quite possible that Chuck won't be able to directly seduce her, and would have to sabotage their relationship to get at the bird booty.

All lewds are possible, but at what cost? We should always keep in mind the cost.
No. 100448 ID: e4f856

Angela wants a romantic relationship. Chuck cant provide that and doesnt want to. So what we should be angling for is a one time affair. Why should we ruin her life by sabotaging the relationship? Not to mention, for the less altruistic side of tgchan, if we break her heart the whole town will know and our further seduction options are limited.

Hell the very idea that people in a long distance relationship need to save themselves for one another with constant abstinence is absurd, unrealistic, and self destructive.

As far as I see it laying the bird would be the most moral and altruistic thing Chuck would have done in Coxwette to date.
No. 100456 ID: cc08c7


Something like an affair could easily put more strain on a long distance relationship because it takes any trust they had for one another and destroys it. An affair is far from the "most moral altruistic thing" Chuck could do.

Overall avoiding the bird topic for now is probably the best plan, we still have zombies and underground tunnels to deal with.

Think I may have a theory as to why there's so few males around coxwette here. What if the KKK bed sheet monsters have been killing or converting all the males in coxwette?

No. 100752 ID: 6ee895

Ok, I probably shouldn't pick at this wound any further, but how are you feeling bad over the way you've written/drawn a quest that you specifically started out AIMING to not put a lot of effort or care in? I mean, it's been pretty up front that this hasn't been your top shelf produce, most of the whole way through. Anyone who's seen your full-effort art elsewhere knows it. Everyone's accepted it, upfront? So I have no idea how "arrogant, egotistical and self-indulgent" could possibly come out of this. Artistically, this quest has been pretty fucking humble, in my opinion.

Also, don't you think saying you "probably looked arrogant, egotistical, and self-indulgent" makes an implicit judgement on everyone on this site who produces a quest that isn't to the same quality as yours? If you're saying you're not good enough to run a quest here then you're basically also telling anyone who considers themselves worse than you that they shouldn't be doing a quest either. Like, I think I'm worse than you, as a visual artist at least. Should I GTFO and not sully the place with my dreck? Am I being arrogant and egotistical by thinking people want to read what I make? If I'm not then you aren't either.

If you don't want to do the quest any more, if you're not feeling it, then just don't, that's fine. People obviously care about it but it's your project. Saying it's because you're not a good enough artist or writer, though? How else are you going to become better at either of those things if you're not going to do something that involves regular drawing and writing? If you had a big grand story in mind that you wanted to do proper justice to, then yeah, the argument of realizingyou're not good enough yet and waiting until you can do it better holds, but I was under the impression you were deliberately trying to not give to much of a shit about this quest.

I was poking a joke playing off the other person posing as you. It was not in any way shape or form meant to be taken literally.

All I'm gonna say is that I liked the quest. It seemed to take itself not too seriously but at the same time just serious enough. I thought it was quality enough to keep it going, but you have the right to stop working on something if you don't want to work on it. Sad to see it go.

Also saying that this is very sudden, and that this >>100727 by itself was not a proper response. The follow-up makes it better, but post the reason why if you know we're gonna ask. Or give a bit of fore-warning or something. W/e. Keep on keeping on then.

Oh. Yeah. And all this was brought to life by you, and your current talents.

If you legitimately want to quit, if your tired of this quest, nothing we say can stop you.

But if your really just feeling like your not good enough to continue. No. Stop that shit. Your doing a great fucking job. So suck it up. Please.

I would just like to say that a person can only get better at drawing and writing with practice, and I'd argue tgchan's The best place for practice. Coxwette's probably done you a lot of good on that front, so unless it's your magnum opus, there's no need to worry so much on quality.

Breaks are good for the soul though, so if you need a break or do something new, go ahead and do the thing you need to do. Just don't stop or not do something cause you don't think somethings up to snuff. You don't get better with the that line of thinking. I only don't make quests because I'm worried I'll get bored and waste everyone's time and investment from me getting bored with Whatever I'm doing.

>>100791 y'all have a cute way of showing it. if anything, throwing these tantrums is a great way to convince RML to never make anything for you guys again, lmao

RML - stuff is always better than you personally think it is. but at the same time, if it's not fun for you anymore, it's time to stop. i want to tell you, though, that even when it's difficult to have faith in your own abilities, it's worth it to try to have faith in the people who tell you you're doing well. i'm extremely reluctant to tell you to use audience feedback as a measure of your own success (for reasons that are obvious and that are literally occurring right now in this thread), but at the same time there's something reassuringly simple about the fact that in general, people like things that are good. and a lot of people like your quests.

This graph here shows a phenomena known as the Dunning-Kruger effect. Wikipedia that shit for details, but the short of it is this:
The better you get at something, the less confident you become in your skill, until you become truly extraordinary.
Skill wise, you are prolly' pretty close to the bottom of that curve right now, RML. Hence the doubt.
But if you look at it another way, for you to be at this point of doubt at all you already have to be pretty damn good at what you're doing. (Otherwise you wouldn't be able to see your shortcomings at all.) This is a natural part of the process, and the process is going well. Stopping now will only slow it down and leave you in this funk of a dip even longer.

Honestly I'd be less pissed if RML hadn't been fishing for a reason to drop CW for the last couple of months. Every week would bring on a new set of arbitrary and insurmountable standards that she felt it and all of her other quests don't live up to. This is not a surprise, it was just handled in basically the worst way possible.

Clearly RML has wanted to drop it for a looooong time, but by (repeatedly) saying that she doesn't have faith in her abilities she is either lying to us or telling us that the thing we like and put faith in is shit. Either way you slice it, I find it insulting. I say this as someone who is a fan and has wanted to drop a quest despite popular opinion. No one is entitled to making an author finishing a quest that they hate working on, but I think its fair to say that her stated reasons for doing so are bullshit.
No. 100809 ID: e7e274


Man, if you think we're having tantrams for posting what we think then fine, we're having tantrams. Everyone is just getting frustrated and feeling insulted. RML isn't just being self defeating, they're going around preaching that pretty much the whole of tgchan is bad at storytelling on both the board and IRC. Whether it's intentional or not.

For example with stuff like “somone was able to guess what I was secretly hinting at, now I must quit as a writer.” This is while the whole of IRC is confused about where this strange belief came from and telling RML that most people prefer a story where you can work stuff out beforehand if you put the mental effort in and apply the clues. Also that a lot of people don't like the style of writing were things are only revield at the very end. With the clues only becoming meaningful after the story tells you what's happining and are useless in figuring out anything beforhand.

But no, RML is enlightened and knows that anything other than your readers being clueless untill a purposeful reviel spelling it out for them is SHIT WRITING and they need to end their quest(or change the plot to make the guess wrong) the second people start putting clues together. This is the kind of ulra strict attitude RML has been running off of that is upsetting people.

It's not just that RML is holding themself to some sort of random and unobtainable “true art” standards, or that they want to quit whenever they don't reach them.

It's that we have mostly been supportive(explaning how they are doing good writhing, and how the quest is a lot of fun) and understanding(sympathising that we often feel the same way about our stuff) to RML. Just to have all of our arguments ignored and have our own writing(and their opinions on what is good writing) attacked. As no one on tgchan can write in a way that isn't cheep and wothless by RML standards.

But in the end I think we all really appreciate and enjoy RMLs work and would support their decision to end it if they feel it necessary. It's just the reason given has become a frustrating subject between tgchan and RML over the last months.


>I am so afraid appearing arrogant by being at the beginning peak of the curve that I do not feel safe being anything but viciously critical of anything I attempt to make.

The problem is that your criticism doesn't only apply to yourself. It attacks other people's work and their opinions on what is good. Making you seem super arrogant and frustrating people as you keep threatening to end the quest due to unreachable expectations.

Aww, and just as we were getting to the part I've been looking forward to since day one.

Kidding aside, if you need a hiatus then take the time you need, Coxwette is my favourite quest at the moment, the characters the lewds and the mystery all appeal to me massively. I'm not going to tell you not to stop, but I certainly will miss you and your work.

Thanks RML.

Because there's already enough of both of those things in the world.

But your little voice that says whatever you do isn't good enough, allows you to create stuff at a level we can only dream of, or experience through your telling.

If you want to improve, finish telling the story and examine what could be done better.

I want RML at their best mental state, because lawdy, making something like this for free every night must take it's toll. So if (she?) needs to take a break, a vacation, or 5 pounds of Belgian chocolate, more power to 'em.

But the idea that Coxwette as it stands isn't good enough for a bunch of freeloaders posting in their underwear is sadly mistaken.Because It's good. It's real good.

It's not easy putting our stuff out there for the world to see, but if it is any consolation you did improve very much from when you began. At least in art. Prose is harder to tell, albeit I would go on a limb and say your writing puts mine to shame and I am the one trying to work a living out of it.

rml, when you say your work is not good enough you need to specify what is it not good enough for.
as is it implies the quest is not good enough for consumption, which is insulting to all the people, including me, who enjoy it. this quest is at the higher ranks of fan involvement and appreciation, looking at the discthread. not jukashi and arhra tiers, but definitely brom tier. that's not to say this quest is as good as brom's, it's honestly not. but people love it all the same. also brom writes plays for a living. he has published books. comparing yourself to him is a little conceited.

i realize you probably mean 'not good enough for my own preference', but i still find myself insulted. do note that falling into this trap will prohibit you from getting better by stopping any attempt at practice. that's your own business though.
as long as you're not telling me what's good enough for me i have no say on what reasonings you base your decisions on. all i can do is hope the choice results in better outcome than the alternatives.

that i said as a consumer of free material. this i say as your friend: you have dropped many quests under similar circumstances and every time the people around you that care about you say similar things, that is that it feels like the decision to drop the quest came first and then you started looking for reasoning and that their perception of your work is not the same as yours, and that you are being too hard on yourself. it culminates in a pattern of self sabotage, regret and self-deprecation. you should probably take a look at this pattern, analyze it and try to keep it from obstructing you from your goals.
No. 100913 ID: 495ff6

I have never presumed to think that the quality of my writing even approaches that of Brom's. I have no idea where people are getting this from, and I am sorry if I have somehow implied otherwise.

My writing amounts to a guilty pleasure for readers, like the McDonald's of writing. You might like the taste, but you still know it's not good. Maybe it is slightly entertaining in a lowbrow way, but there is no substance to it beneathe the surface. I truly aspire to fix this.

I hope this sheds some light on my decision for hiatus.

If it is about being the best for you, then I guess you need to get out of your comfort zone and all of that eye-of-the-tiger. But if you are into it for the fun of it, then that is all that matters.
Honestly, questing isn't the best medium to become a better writer. But I can verify that your visual comedy is spot on, as good as many comics I paid for in the past. Your drawings complement your writing skills beautifully and you shouldn't feel like they are two different mediums.

As for substance... well, sure, but I always felt that was part of what you were aiming for. A light-hearted story of banditry and sexual conquest, with a hint of greater mysteries beyond the seemingly calm horizon. A sort of dating-sim meets Innsmouth. I loved it. It was original.

That has moved up to moderately insulting. It implies that the people reading the quest and liking it have no sense of taste/ability to tell what's good or bad. I'm not asking for an apology or for you to retract your words, just stating how I feel it comes across.

Like I said before, you do you and it's up to you what you want to do. I still look forward to what you'll work on in the future.

(I feel at this point your best option would be to just say straight out "Thank you for your kind(and unkind) words, but I will not continue this quest for a while if at all" and just kind of leave it at that. You don't have to justify the reason for stopping it if you don't want to, so I hope you aren't compelled to try to refute every person saying they liked it for so and so, or that you should do such and such. Sometimes leaving the scab alone and not fussing with it at all is the best way for it to heal. Whatever you do, I genuinely hope you feel content with your decision at the end of the day, and that you go on to find what you're looking for.)

Honestly, I don't know why people are this shocked. This is and has been RML's modus operandi since her first quest. I'm just counting the minutes until she deletes all her threads again.

Here's a lesson for quest authors present and future: ignoring all positive feedback and bending over backwards to please people who have only negative things to say about your work is not a path to success. It is a path to becoming RML. If you are afraid of becoming complacent or egotistical due to focusing on positive praise, consider that the opposite is no less infuriating.

This is RML. This is the person who, when 9 people tell her to continue doing something well and 1 person tells her to, for example, completely change her art style, she will completely change her art style to something hideous while telling the 9 other people this is what they wanted.

In summary, you were all idiots to get attached to an RML quest and you're going to be idiots if RML comes back and makes another new quest. My only sympathy is for the people who were burned without previous exposure to RML's work, but considering she goes out of her way to destroy her earlier work, I can't fault them for not knowing.

I'm not going to address anything in this post to RML directly because it became clear she has no interest in listening to legitimate criticism or improving as a person two or three years ago. I actually feel a little dirty because by being negative towards RML I know I'm feeding into her persecution complex just that little bit more, but I'll do what I have to to let people know not to make this mistake again.
No. 100980 ID: 49f18e

Honestly as long as RML doesn't delete the threads (which would be a shame, they're a very fun read)

She's been updating the quest non-stop since the beginning of the year and produced more 600 updates
that's impressive work no matter how you look at it.

If RML feels she's not confident to proceed it's fully understandable, nothing lasts for ever and not everything need to come to a solid conclusion. I was along for the ride and enjoying it.
If she continues without feeling up to it the story and characterization would likely suffer, souring the memory
that would not only ruin the story but also ruin RML's confidence in her own ability.
I know I've done the same thing several time
I kind of wish I had the strength to let go of stories that aren't working.

I'm not objecting to RML ending the quest for being sick of it. That's not the reason she gave for ending it. As Tox said, >>100926 she was fishing for a more "legitimate" reason to drop it, and in the process has made me and others angrier than if she'd just said "yeah I'm sick of this quest" or just said nothing at all.

For the record I agree exactly with this poster.
I'm incredibly amused that this is where someone finally feels the need to step in and enforce rules. If it was anyone else other than a BIG NAME QUEST PERSON they'd be free to get torn to shreds.

But, the premise and further developments are far too interesting to drop - and the same could be said of Coxwette. Shame it had to die in such an ignoble way though.

First, I am sorry for the drama, and I did not expect any of it to lead to bannings.

I am trying to work through the anxiety that I have about this quest, but in the meantime, here is a distraction. I want to put forth a poll before the people actually reading and suggesting in the quest as to how it should proceed with regards to sexual content. Depiction of genitals, intercourse, and bodily fluids are not always appropriate content for inside a quest thread.

Here is a poll to decide. I know you all will want to try to cheat this poll, but I would appreciate if you didn't!


The choices explained:

Fully Explicit - This is the status quo. It takes the quest from a normal work of fiction to a graphic pornography, as it depicts genitals and intercourse explicitly. It seems very few quests take this route.

Tasteful On-screen - This would show sex onscreen, but not show any intercourse or genitalia. This is how Enemy Quest is, and how almost all sex-based quests are.

Off-screen - Sex will still happen, but it will not be shown on-screen. It may be talked about or hinted at, but the actual scene will fade to black. This is how 90% of quests handle it.

Please note that this has NO EFFECT on art outside of the quest threads. Thank you for your time as always!

Where's the "who gives a fuck" option, because really if you don't like the porn just skip it. Authors just have to remember to spoiler the image and text and put NSFW in the email field of the post.

tasteful is nice and it's what i've voted for. I honestly think it's one of the best ways to handle sex in a quest considering when sex does happen the suggesters have to do actions during the deed, and everyone just gets weird during that.

No. 101192 ID: c22069

These two pretty much sum up my thoughts on the matter. Also I have to say one of the things I really liked about Coxwette initially was the concept that lewds were bonuses that had to be earned. I think the explicit content is fine as long as its something suggesters have to really work for to achieve. Like an award earned is always better than an award given, if that makes sense.

you should have a "whatever you're most comfortable with" option for us to choose. I personally believe the quality of the quest would be highest if the sexual content is handled to the author's preferences.
No. 101195 ID: 20295c

I voted for the full-explicit, on the condition that everything stays in-character and it doesn't mess with the pacing. Any level of lewdity is fine, but it needs to be backed with good storytelling.

... and I think that's kind of been a non-issue here, honestly. This one of the best-written and best-designed quests on the board, fullstop. To the point where I went in wanting and expecting to dislike it, but just couldn't. And I think that's pretty impressive.

I'm willing to elaborate on why I think it works so well, too, but I'd rather you ask me about it first. Mostly because I don't want to spam the thread with an unnecessary wall of text that nobody's interested in reading. So if you wanna know, reply to this post and ask I guess.

Also, I couldn't help but notice this in the poll:

>It seems very few quests take this route.
>This is how Enemy Quest is, and how almost all sex-based quests are.
>Sex will still happen, but it will not be shown on-screen. It may be talked about or hinted at, but the actual scene will fade to black. This is how 90% of quests handle it.

I feel like I should probably say something about this, since it seems to kinda speak to the trouble you're having here. Basically, you seem to be implying that if another quest does something differently than yours, and it works, you must be doing it wrong. Which... just isn't correct.

Coxwette is, and has been, working pretty much fine for the most part. Explicit sex scenes work pretty well within the narrative context of the quest, and have pretty much never felt out-of-place, shoehorned-in, or pandering. Every quest has different storytelling needs, and if the size of the fanbase for this one is any indication, you've already mostly met Coxwette's needs.

And for the record, Enemy Quest is definitely explicit enough to fall into the first category. Seriously, have you read some of those sex scenes? Stuff like, >>/quest/702667 is pretty commonplace in that quest, and that's excluding the written portions. And much like Coxwette, it's still damn good.

I know this has been said numerous times (sometimes WAY too forcefully) but you are being way too hard on yourself, and too hard on Coxwette. Especially for something you aren't charging for. Seriously.

I think that the EQ scenes are more tastefully done personally. Whether or not the art is to your taste, it is more classy in that it shows less vulgar nudity.

No. 101245 ID: f0e552

there's something weird about having a group of people control characters actions during sex scenes. You may be able to control this by going EQ's route and just have decisions prior to scenes and then just go on autopilot during.

>everyone chill out this time, this thread got really, really weirdly heated twice

Agreed. I'd rather not see another ugly meltdown in here.


>I mean it was very tame and tasteful compared to the Coxwette sex scene, which featured depictions of non-silhouette genitals and bodily fluids. For that reason, I would put it more toward option #2 than #1

Which, fair enough I guess. The few scenes Coxwette has had were a maybe little more explicit. A little. I don't feel comfortable dragging Enemy Quest into this discussion too much, but the level of detail described is still pretty similar, even if the level of detail on the art isn't as high. Also, maybe consider that Enemy Quest has many, many more (slightly less) explicit sex scenes than Coxwette. Like several per thread if I recall.

But honestly, I'm not sure how useful it is to compare these quests directly, so I'm gonna stop doing that. It's apples and oranges, since Enemy Quest has a different kind of setting, characters, and narrative focus, and thus has different needs anyway.

I think the fact that you can say Coxwette sex scene and be mostly right is kind of telling, though. I mean, you've had four threads and maybe two sex scenes between them. The story-porn ratio is skewed way towards story here. Which works, and I like that it takes a realistic amount of effort for Charlemagne to talk people into sleeping with him.


This exchange is making me question the usefulness of the distinction between tasteful and explicit here. Whether or not you show a dick or vagina or bodily fluids isn't really an important question in the context of good or bad storytelling, which seems to be what RML is worried about here. I think breaking down the content to a checklist isn't really useful in terms of deciding whether or not the story is working.

>No accounting for taste, but I found that orgy scene text-heavy and confusing. And the art is admittedly not to my taste. No offense intended, DM.
None taken! And honestly, I can understand that Enemy Quest isn't for everyone. It leans heavily on Brom's writing skills, so it's more geared toward people who like to read anyway. I'd say more, but this isn't really the time or the place for that.

>Coxwette's have so far been minimalist and actually good.
This. The scenes weren't excessively long or lavish, and kept the focus on the characters.

>If we're meant to role-play the character, shouldn't the seedy bits feel suitably dirty and overt?
I'm in agreement here. I feel like it would be tonally kind of weird for everything to get super-modest the second any actual sex happens, given the kind of character Charlemagne is and the tone of the quest. Also, I feel like going out of your way to avoid showing genitalia is a good way to ruin shot composition. I'd just pick the same angles that I would if they were wearing clothes, personally.

>I mean, I know what I think, but I'm not making the quest.
This is also important to consider. What do you want to do, RML? If you're not comfortable running something super-explicit and you want to tone it down, that's fine. Just try not to forget that most of us don't actually care how how explicit it is or isn't, so long as the story is good.

But since you're running this thing for free, I honestly think it should ultimately be up to you. You certainly don't have to do anything on our behalf, and it honestly might be a bad idea to slavishly follow audience expectations anyway. Do what you want.
No. 101261 ID: 2f5847

In full agreement with all of this. And there's a lot of good points I left out of my own comparatively short post.

At the end of the day, what I want is (and should be) secondary to what the author does. But I'll let it be known what I want is staying the course.

I suppose the key word is bad, in "bad furry porn comic".

Having a bunch of bad porn around, furry or no, would and in some cases has dragged down the tone of the site, it's true, but I would argue that only happens when the author seems to be oblivious to the problems with their work, when there's a creeping feeling that they don't really recognize their flaws or understand why anyone would object to it. When someone crudely draws grotesque, malformed flesh puppets, cast in situations designed to appeal to their personal particular fetishes, and not only acts like this is erotic, but clearly doesn't catch on to the idea that anyone wouldn't want to see it, then there's a problem. It's what we could call the "cringe factor".

However. When we have people drawing porn, but that porn is good, as in bearing artistic merit and displaying the creator's skills, that's not a problem. Tgchan is basically a kind of art gallery website, made by and for artists (including authors as well as visual artists), and the content of any particular piece of art is easily excusable by the skill in the making it displays, whether it be skill at drawing or coloring or writing characters or writing humor or worldbuilding or et cetera et cetera. There are a lot of quests that do only one thing well and fully justify their existence based on that one thing. And, alternately, when there is a sense of tongue-in-cheek or self-awareness to an author's work, that is also perfectly acceptable and eliminates the cringe factor. We're not all pros, some (even most) of us are here to learn and practice, so it's ok if we're bad so long as we know it and are making the attempt to take strides.

Now, Coxwette has a simplified, rough and quick artstyle, but I would argue that it's still good, in the sense that the artist clearly has a firm grasp of the principles of proportion and positioning and gesture and so on and so forth. It's very characterful and feels alive and enjoyable to experience. But, I can see how someone could argue that it doesn't display artistic merit, even if I don't agree. However, it does still very much have the second qualifier of self-awareness, so even if it was bad, it still doesn't fall into the furry cringe abyss at all, by my reckoning.

So... not a bad furry porn comic.

>Whether or not the art is to your taste, it is more classy in that it shows less vulgar nudity.
I kinda take issue with the idea that explicit nudity somehow automatically drags quality down, or that vulgarity is necessarily bad. I still stand by my stance that making Coxwette "classier" would actually make it a considerably worse quest, as it would be tonally dissonant.

>I guess I am just nervous of looking like a bad furry porn comic.
Well, bad is the operative word here. Coxwette is pretty damn good, and is honestly barely porn most of the time. Not that being porn is necessarily bad either, but I don't have time to elaborate right now so I'm gonna leave it at that.

>That would reflect badly on the site to have on the front page for too long, spoilered or not.
I've been here for a long time, and if there's one thing that's been a universal constant with this site is that it is a goddamn cesspool. I've seen some serious shit here in my time. No amount of Coxwette is gonna drag this site's moral qualities or whatever any lower than they already are.

Have you seen /draw/ lately? Or anything that Certain Other Authors have been running? Hell, have you seen some of the shit I've run? Seriously, reputation is kind of a non-issue when running something here. And I think that's frequently a good thing, honestly. I'd say more, but I can't right now. I've gotta go.

I voted for full porn because I'm a furry degenerate, however, it's not the option I wanted to see. I was sort of hoping for a vote button that had, "All of the above, as best suited for the story."
As in, if Chuck does get romantic with Marcie, she's sweetness and marshmallow fluff. I wouldn't feel right if it got explicit. While the scene that was happening with Naz? We are getting a hook-up, while other people are sleeping in the same room, with a woman he's going to film a porno with. Explicit is kosher.

Coxwette as a story has always seemed like it pulls us in two different directions with its meta: Get a good end or Get more porn.
I fucking love that.
Unlike other quests where we are ass motivated to just Do the best thing We all have radically different ideas on what the best thing might be because our initial goals are intrinsically different.
It makes Coxwette unpredictable and votes feel more meaningful, all while opening clear ending avenues that we can look forward to or fear.

Tldr: Explicit only makes good things happen in my opinion.

No. 101586 ID: 9f3729

Yes, that's kind of my point! By aping the general FEEL rather than the general CONSENSUS, Chuck's been a fun slippery sort of control. A nice midground between "We are the protagonist" and "We are voices shouting at the protagonist" where we get just a little bit of unpredictability there, but not so much it feels overtly frustrating when the protagonist screws up, IE, railroading.

You can say a lot about the situation right now, but we can't say it wasn't at least somewhat our fault.

Somewhat tangential, but I don't think it's helpful to think of us as a hivemind. "Oh no, we suggested this, it's our fault!" A bit less than half of the posts suggested going along with it or just not flipping shit at all. It's somewhat unfair to lump those in with what ended up barely winning the majority vote. I was in the half that didn't suggest going along, for the record.

Also, it seems a bit of a shame that portion of the suggestions ended up more or less ignored. I'm not sure if the nature of the quest system required it, since we did vote for specific options, or if they should have been taken into consideration when writing Chuck's reaction. To be clear, I don't blame RML for straight-up going with the majority vote, but I'm curious what you guys think.

The internet is a very predictable place. Chuck has absolutely nothing to apologize for.


Chuck has specifically gone over his past with his parents controlling his life and using him and then tossing him aside when he was no longer useful to them in the quest.

We know Chuck's got a really dark past when it comes to being subservient and taken advantage of:
We know he's a crook on the run from the law:
And this very night he was accosted by a terrifying zombie thing, like the kind that fired scary organic flesh darts into his torso the other night.

His outburst makes perfect narrative sense and is honestly a lot more interesting to read than whatever would have happened next.

No. 101881 ID: ba7c6d


Judging by the flashback, she seems to need an "in" to control someone, like she needs to hack in and use some sort of loyalty or attachment or authority figure they already have to subliminally insert her own instructions.

With Chuck, the best she could find is his mom, buuuut Chuck basically thinks both his parents are pretty terrible people by this stage of his life. He probably doesn't give much of a shit about any promises he'd have made her or what she'd think of him any more. I doubt there's anyone else he'd see as a parent figure or mentor or leader, either, on any emotional level. So there's nothing for the mayor to get a hold on to.

So, if you want to be resistant to vampire snake control, all you need is for the treachery and abandonment of the people who should have loved and cared for you to have left you a burnt-out emotional cripple incapable of loyalty or trust.

What a bargain!

Her power seems pretty similar to hypnotism, which requires chuck to want or otherwise have reason to accept the suggestion.

At the very least I imagine the mayor would both need to know Chuck better, and Chuck would need to trust, or at least want to trust her. Since she has none of that, she has no power over him.

It kind of makes sense too. As an authority figure most people would naturally be inclined to trust her and therefore be more susceptible to her. Since Chuck has no respect for authority he lacks that weakness.

I would also infer that the more she tries and fails on Chuck the more resistant to it he becomes. He'll be able to better recognize process and fight it before it even begins.

Honestly the revelation that Marcie is rich changes nothing about my reasoning for abstaining for the moment. Marcie is a great person and I really don't want to see a repeat of the Ramona scene where she asks about other hookups and gets really sad when we inevitably tell her the truth. So I said wait until later, perhaps if all else goes south we could always try to really romance and settle with Marcie. This is like if you can't get into the catacombs, can't kill the daemons, and can't leave the town.

Settling with her is probably the best plan if the other things go south (escaping the town or solving the mystery of the town).

The only danger is how she might react to us fucking ramona and naz. I'm sure we can solve this though.

Settling with her sister would have been a better option, but we already started with marcie so switching to her sister is asking for trouble and needless drama between them. Plus she is way smarter than her, so things like his fling with ramona and naz, or maybe even chuck's criminal past might be a much bigger problem.

I doubt Marcie would ever react to Chucks philanderings like Ramona. I doubt she would even have a big problem with whoever Chuck sticks his dick in {'cept penny of course) until they finally do consummate their relationship.
Ramona is dealing with crippling loneliness.
When chuck made some moves on her it gave her hope. She immediately idolized him as her knight in shining armor, and when the reality set in that she was just another fling, all that got ripped away from her, resulting in the Ramona we have now.
Marcie does not have that problem.
I think Marcie is just liked enough for us to take a more cautious approach with her. She also seems to be a good thing for Chuck in several ways, and is probably the least precarious relationship he has in town. You don't want to burn every bridge.

It seems to be less specifically women and more about emotional attachments. He didn't have any issue with any woman except Susanna until marriage was mentioned. I'm going take a fairly safe guess and say that his parents' shitty marriage left a really bad impression on him.
No. 102008 ID: 1f2597

I'm thinking you are correct. Seeing his parents own failures only made him feel that love and marriage only lead to bad end. However what I think Chuck failed to realize is this isn't a sign of marriage being bad, it's bad if a couple is not emotionally and finacially ready for a child, which can then lead to bad parenting.

Chuck's mother said something very important that we should take to heart when it comes to Naz. People sometimes get angry and say things they don't really mean. Naz pushed Chuck too far and got him angry and then he said some stuff he didn't really mean. He can apologize for that, and she can apologize for what she did as well.
No. 102021 ID: 3e182c

Naz can prolly be salvaged completely if Chuck gives her a sincere apology including the story from his past that makes him freak with collars.

Prolly at least stay friends if he gives her a halfway decent apology about telling her to kill herself.

The trick is getting Chuck in the right state of mind to do either of these things. Chuck has a habit of letting feces flow from his mouth when he feels anything.

Mona can't be salvaged unless Chuck does something to show he genuinely cares. Even if it's totally platonic.
Of course, that means not being an asshole.

No. 102039 ID: 3e182c

I think that's taking it a bit far. She appears reasonable enough to respond to normal treatment, she just hide it.

But I'll admit... She also appears broken enough to respond to the treatment you suggest if we want the sadist route Chuck to be his father.

No matter how we deal with her though, I feel like being careless with Naz could end up cause unexpected fallout and through Sally, Alienate the Plats.

I'm pretty sure that's a prerequisite for a bad end. :p
No. 102041 ID: 2f5847

Yeah, but- It's not the sadist route if said mouse is INTO it.

You can't just lead submissives/masochists to be assertive and lovey dovey. They'll reject it. Nor should you just abuse them for the hell of it either. Gotta stay controlled. Chuck could stand to work on that.

No. 102049 ID: 3e182c

Maybe. But I think you have Naz painted wrong. Consider that her distant non-nonchalant attitude and constant pranks would actually give her a feeling of control. Also consider she put the collar on Chuck, not herself, and only after she broke character and said "Marry me". Notice that when Chuck freaked out she didn't get angry, she wasn't in to it, she didn't freak out too. She Collapsed. She played it off best she could but the illustration made clear she was crying. This doesn't seem submissive to me at all. Instead Naz seems like one of those tiny people who are always lonely because they keep everyone away with a fake face. If people can't get close to you they can't hurt you. If people try to get close to you, change the dynamic so they don't. Put them or yourself above, below, or away somehow so the real you is never revealed.
Putting the collar on Chuck was just that. By positioning herself above Chuck she would be able to continue while maintaining her non-nonchalant persona and therefor not reveal any more about herself.
As to why she would own collars at all... Well having met lots of people like this IRL, collars are pretty common among them. Constantly doing this bizarre social dance they do is like holding their breath. Putting on a collar and letting someone they trust (If they have one) do the thinking every now and then is their chance to breath. Submissiveness is an occasional thing to them, not a life style.
They need control, but like to take a break once in a while.
I think an interesting thing to note about this though is that when Chuck exploded in her face, she probably didn't blame him at all. She probably completely blames herself.
This is why I suggest a real apology. She might not be looking for one but it should restore the previous dynamic.

Given her current compromised position toward Chuck however, if leveraged correctly your dominance idea could actually work. Though I can say nothing for the health or longevity of such a relationship.

r u trying to make chuck a casanova or a slaver

on the topic of Naz, i think a genuine, sincere apology could be useful. kinks or whatever not, naz is still a person (you know what i mean, in-story and all of that) and her kinks aren't gonna be everything she wants.

she's so distant from everyone, and she might be expecting some sort of suave "cool" control thing in response from chuck, but sincerity would be what she doesn't expect from this song and dance, and it could be very good to her and help her out and be what she needs.

Aaaaaactually yes you can. Sexual kinks do not generally determine someone's personality. Now, if you want to have someone hot and bothered all the time you can appeal to their kink all the time, but if you want someone to like you, that's not guaranteed to work.

Exactly, and the thing about kinks is that, well, theyre kinks. You get consent. Its pretend.

No. 102087 ID: 3e182c

It's been occurring to me (especially lately with the whole Naz explosion), that unless there is some Serious Solidarity in our suggestions, Chuck will be Chuck. Simple majority doesn't seem to cut it, and Chuck is an asshole.

Obtaining lewds and favored waifus aside, we should probably figure out an endgame goal to work together toward so we can be cohesive enough to actually do something beyond drifting around, dicking people, and doing the random side quest. As it stands I see him eventually getting kicked out of town or killed.

So we need to decide...
Are we on team Ramona, or team Suzanna?
Maybe no team at all? How do we want this to end then?
Who are we going to Lewd, Platonicly friend, ignore, manipulate, or act against to achieve that, and how?

What side quests do we care about? Will the Plath house ever have more guests or better food? Will Lorrain ever be read that letter? Will That Chest in the attic ever be opened? Will the town ever have apples? Will we ever think of a most excellent horse pun? Will Ellen Ever Smile?(Maybe, were supposed to paint with her tomorrow afternoon, btw.)
What's in the big vault anyway? Where the hell did that helpful turtle go? And more!

There's just so much to do that isn't directly in front of us we need to choose a direction.

Not only that, but now there's the Marcie issue, Chucks not one for monogamy and there are still lewds elsewhere that people want to see. In addition to being loved by the whole town, Marcie is Chucks boss. Definitely not someones heart we want to break, and yet their relationship careens closer and closer to the point of no return.
It really needs to be decided soon if we are going to end this or not. Because if we don't and we fuck up, Chucks life is going to get a hell of a lot harder.

What do y'all think?
No. 102096 ID: 79a07e

You noticed that, too? I felt like he was less listening and more vaguely taking suggestions. It seems like if we want solid direction over the story, we need to hivemind the issue outright.

Now, as for your other stuff:

>So we need to decide...
>Are we on team Ramona, or team Suzanna?
Maybe no team at all? How do we want this to end then?

I personally vote team Ramona. If only because I personally dislike the idea of everyone living in a Tranquility Lane scenario. Let's break the illusion. That said, if Suzanna is more palatable to some, I can understand that.

>Who are we going to Lewd, Platonicly friend, ignore, manipulate, or act against to achieve that, and how?

I can't say much to this, it's really complicated. I will say I at least think we should apologize to Naz, and try to make things up with Ramona. Marcie I just don't want to hurt in any way, shape, or form.

>What side quests do we care about? Will the Plath house ever have more guests or better food?

I want this quest done if only because it was one of the first, and it'd help out people in general.

>Not only that, but now there's the Marcie issue, Chucks not one for monogamy and there are still lewds elsewhere that people want to see.

Chuck needs to be honest in that he's not looking for a relationship, and really shouldn't break Marcie's heart. If he's not going steady with her, call it off, and explain why. The thing is, like you said, we're going to have to FORCE that issue by hiveminding it out of him, or else he'll ignore it.

>What do y'all think?
I think I'm starting to not like Chuck. As a character in general, I mean. He's the guy I'd root AGAINST the more I see him, even considering his background. So I'd like to support not making that happen.

We should stay on good terms with the Cats and the Slumber party gang (yes, I know). Can't trust the cops or the Ostrich too much. Naz, Marcie, and Lisa are my top 3 baes.

>Not only that, but now there's the Marcie issue,
Much like watching a car accident, we've already gone past the point we can stop. I think it could be an added challenge, if played right.

We need to investigate more. Pick locks, delve basements, read documents. Along with working the social angle. We can't solve quests with the resources we have, so let's get more.

I don't see how any of those clash with each other. Everyone has some moral line they won't cross. And you can't say that being a criminal isn't foolhardy in the slightest.

I think we could make headway on this if we took some time and cooked with Ramona at some point. It would drive improvement in Plat House food without hurting her, while simultaneously improving her disposition toward Chuck and helping with her crippling loneliness. All that plus it gives us the option to foster a platonic relationship. I was never a huge fan of fucking the dog mom myself. Bonus points if we pick up some tips about cooking from Penny and Marcie ahead of time.

I one hundred percent agree but...
>Can't trust the cops or the Ostrich too much.
Are you kidding? Check it out.
Chuck has one of THE BEST jobs available for keeping his ear to the ground. Honestly we could know literally EVERYTHING going on around town with almost zero effort.
Penny at the Cafe gets to hear conversations and rumors from everyone who comes in.
As a Police Officer, part of Layla's job is knowing whats going on in town. Her unique position gives her unique information the average person might not have.
Rita at the Post Office Handles everyone's mail. Postal workers know a TERRIFYING amount of information about the people who's mail they are responsible for. She not only has a chance to interact with everyone in town, but she knows where they live, how they live, what they do, what they enjoy, what their habits are, and way more just by delivering their mail. (I.. May have been a mailman before.)
Angela at the school regularly interacts with the towns kids. Though not the best source, kids (Especially young ones) are notorious for blabbing about anything they see and parroting what their parents say and do. The Ostrich has a window into the goings on of town that only she can see.
If we stopped at at least 3 of these places daily during work and spent some time just shooting the shit with people (Instead of trying to stick our dick in them), Chuck would know everything going on in town. He would also be able to gather any piece of information he needs in short order. While all of these people have things they can't or won't reveal, by having a robust network Chuck could corroborate bits and pieces into full picture. Of course, doing this would mean wed have to be more selective of or completely eschew social calls at work.

>we've already gone past the point we can stop
Nah Breaking up now would hurt her yeah, but she'd still get over it. Things might be awkward with her and Penny for a time but things would normalize.
Hell depending on how the current scenario with her plays out we might still have a few days to a week to break things off without totally crushing her. It's just, the more time we spend with her the sooner we make it to that point.
I wonder how she would take a suggestion for an open relationship. I doubt she'd like the idea but she's so innocent I bet Chuck could sleaze her into it, at least for a time.

>I think a selfish, manipulative Chuck is way more relatable than a moral or foolhardy one.
Chuck is foolhardy with his selfishness. But I too like that he's a dick, it's refreshing. But he's also a miserable friendless asshole who's sole joy in life is the next warm hole. Watching his self destructive tendencies gets tedious, and honestly despite him being a bad guy I still would like to see him succeed. To me the final boss of this quest is Chuck himself, in the battle to grow himself a heart. I don't ever see Chuck being completely "Moral", but I'd like to see the day he wakes up as something other than a monster.

>Or, maybe we can convince Susanna to take her nose out of a book and join us in the real world.
I love this Idea. We'll need to make lots of appointments with the Mayor though. :p

Also on Suzanna, I don't know if it's been posited yet, but The hooded figure was her. Remember how Lisa disappeared and her eyes were black? Chucks Eyes turn black when the mayor tries to hypnotize him. Suzanna must have appeared in the window and gave Lisa a mental command. Also note that Lisa was bawling, and when under Suzanna's influence Chuck was experiencing a painful memory. Lisa may have been as well.

>Suzanna was the hooded figure
Does this look like a snake to you?

I mean I guess she could have also been wearing a (horned?) mask under there, but... I dunno. I feel like she can just use the demons as spies, and Lisa knows this, which means she freaked out. The freaky eye thing might happen when under intense emotions too.
No. 102121 ID: 3e182c

There's a professional tailor in town and Suzanna likes hats. It occurs to me now that we should ask Sophie if she has ever made anything that fits that bill.
>The freaky eye thing might happen when under intense emotions too.
Maybe. But I'd be more inclined to think that someone had just used that wacky mind control on her. Barring a fancy hat or mask perhaps there are others in town with it?
No. 102124 ID: b8f93b

Gotta be careful. It would be very easy for Suzanna to dispose of Chuck by putting the cops on him, if any of his past gets out or he's caught in any shenanigans.

I suggested us showing her a thing or two a while back, but Chuck said he had no idea how to cook.
No. 102132 ID: 3e182c

We have Marcie and Penny for that thankfully, but really all we need to do is slow her down a bit.

We've never actually watched her cook but come on. Chunks of flower? Cold and half cooked food? Totally random shit mixed in?
She is clearly freaking the fuck out when she cooks. Even someone who has never cooked before knows that chunks of cold uncooked food is bad.

Even without any cooking experience, Chuck just being there could provide enough moral support to prevent an anxiety attack in the kitchen. At the very least he could spot her and suggest say.... Not putting something in or keeping a dish in longer.

Okay, so? I'm not exactly one to care for delicate sensibilities myself, but suicide isn't the kind of thing that goes over well even if you're being "a bit facetious", especially with how hard it is to understand a stranger's intent from text and the seemingly disproportionate amount of people here with depression or some such.

Time for detecting sarcasm online 101

If the person writes stupidly on purpose they're probably being facetious (lolspeak, spelling mistakes, your/youre confusion, writing in dialect, emojis, writing out the last word of an acronym after the acronym, etc.)

If they call you nicknames or get weirdly personal then they're probably just havin' a giggle (lil' guy, bro, pal, boss, my man, etc.)

Or, less relevantly to this situation, if they use some sarcasm signifier then they're definitely joking (/s, kappa, :V, etc.)

So Ramona's "Getting Thinner Comment got me thinking, So I tried to inventory everything Chuck has eaten since arriving in Coxwette 6 days ago.
Let me know if I missed anything.
The List is in order from Most recent to least:

Toast + eggs
Tea (Maybe + scones)
1 Orange
Mouse Juice
Garlic-Parsly Witch Doctor Medicine
Leftover Cake
Country fried steak Dinner
Gin, 2-3 Shots worth
Plate of Scrumptious Vittles
Plate of "Eggs", "Bacon", "Bannana Nut Muffin", and "Coffee"
Shipping Label
Chicken "Soup"

Some quick googling of caloric content suggests that we've been letting Chuck starve.
Even if I'm generous with portions, assume the scones were actually eaten, Assume Chuck eats the Reveyee and assume it has similar calories to a big ass bowl of plum pudding, and apply the calories from the gin, mouse spunk, and even the shipping label glue...
Chuck's only eaten a little over 8000 calories over this past week.
With 4300 was in one day and 1700 just now
Meaning over the remaining 4 days chuck ate just 1 day worth of food despite constantly Walking, Running, Biking, Dancing, Manual Laboring, and Fucking his way through town.

No wonder Ramona's all worried. Chuck's literally starving.
No. 102427 ID: 398fe1

I don't know, Chuck's reasonably competent on his own in that he's a nearly-successful bank robber, and bank robbery is even harder than it sounds to get away with. I kinda doubt he just sits around and starves when we don't explicitly tell him to do stuff.

I want to agree with you here. Normally in quests eating is like pooping. You just assume it happens because why wouldn't it, you don't need to see it.

But Coxwette is also a quest with a really, really close resolution on the protagonists life. I mean we worry about if he's freaken showered or not. It's possible Ramona just said it because she wants him to eat her whatever and she's weird. But it's also possible that he really hasn't eaten much.

I've known plenty of people who get caught up in life and forget to eat. Sometimes for days on end.

You fail to account for the presence of southern cooking. Even if we can't have lard because of pig-people, (or maybe we can, because fuck the pig-people)
there's about 250% too much buttermilk and cream glazes on all those cakes.

I was tempted to add more but Southern comfort aside, a skilled chef doesn't need to drown everything in quite so much butter and lard to make food delicious.

Fair point on the catguy thing, though he does move around a lot.

Just curious in case cannibalism ever shows up in your quests.
No. 102508 ID: 9876c4

I think the basis for the duality is that genetics work differently here.
Marcie isn't an actual housecat, she descended from a line of bipedal, sentient cat people a million years ago. She and a housecat have a common ancestor, but one is a sentient citizen with cat features, and one is a furry pet.

Given that 75%+ of their diet and schedule are different, I bet Marcie and that cat would taste substantially different.

However, a subrace that evolved from a predator could certainly prey on sentient folks that resemble their natural prey. I bet Cannibalism is a real threat in the less civilized corners of RML-world.

No. 102592 ID: 241e41

This is what specifically happened:

Chuck was surprised, and he reacted in a way that was meant to be innocent and playful, but accidentally came off as more hostile than he meant it to. Then we were given a chance to decide whether to go along with it or not. Most of the people decided to go along with it, and Chuck proceeded to do the exact opposite of that and completely freak out.

I've seen what people have been saying to justify that. I want to know what the reasoning behind this sequence of events actually is, because it just doesn't make sense. If it would have been so out-of-character for Chuck, why was it an option in the first place? And if it was the option selected, why didn't he do it? If he had such strong feelings about Naz's prank (for reasons which are still unclear), why didn't he react that way when it actually happened, instead of the following update after a vote to the contrary? What combination of responses would have resulted in him playing along?
No. 102593 ID: c94cbb

After having been recently assaulted and stabbed by a creepy monster, and seeing another creepy monster outside the window and being on guard against that, most people probably would react badly to having something suddenly sprung on them from behind.

Beyond that, Chuck himself seems like he has problems with the notion of being restrained, in general. His life was probably pretty regimented during his minor fame phase as a kid, he'd never have been allowed to wander off anywhere or go where he wanted to go, and would have been constantly watched. And as a burglar (probably at least partially a reaction against his earlier life), he's not only gotten used to being able to get into/out of places, but has probably developed a certain "wary eye" - a bit of him constantly watching for ways to get out of wherever he is in case something suddenly goes wrong, like cops showing up. And he probably draws some of his self-confidence and calm from the confidence that he can escape from things - the first thing we ever saw him do was part of an escape. Anything that could be used to lock him down probably makes him super uncomfortable or even panicky, and that's leaving aside any possibility that he has actually done time in the past and would have leftover feelings from that.

The man has issues, basically. I think.

That doesn't explain the real, actual reason why that particular course of action was chosen. People are currently trying to explain how Chuck felt, even though it has never actually been made clear how Chuck felt or why, so they're trying to guess or simply make up his thought on the matter.

Susanna does the rounds every day, so she would have the ability to use her power on everyone in town, within a day, in reaction to anything that Chuck does. If we try to rally the townspeople against her all she'd have to do is catch wind and then turn everyone against Chuck the next day.

On the other hand... we are giving food to a lot of people in town. If we can get Marcie to add in something from Ramona's stock that will add resistance to the townsfolk, we could really get things done. Problem is finding something Ramona can make to help that won't taste so bad people stop eating Marcie's goods.

Instead of having Ramona make something though, what if we instead had Chuck learn the Reveyee recipe, and then pass it on to Marcie and/or Penny? If anyone could make it edible it would be them, and thanks to Chucks current relationship with Marcie, he's in good with both.
I doubt Ramona would be against robbing Suzanna of some power, and even if she is Chuck's a master thief.

So what we gonna talk to Ellen about anyway? Someone mentioned maybe having her move into the Plath house.
Would be an interesting idea. The mayor is clearly manipulating her, at least to have her run the store. I think having her eat reveyee for a few days could be interesting. Also how her parents died seems... implausible.
Yes people can die in barge undertows but... It's a bazaar way to go. The fact that the mayor sort of "Inherited" their stole screams foul play to me.

Also, how we gonna get these tools?
I mean... we could order some from a mail order catalog but that would take forever.

We could snoop more at the Plath house and maybe find some pliers and a screwdriver...

We could study that french book everyone's forgotten about, get closer to Rachel, and steal them from her...

The quest thread is not the place to complain, and you certainly shouldn't be doing it *without even suggesting*.

Not to mention that there is also good reason for Chuck to be decent to people. This is a small town full of people Chuck has to see everyday. Every action can yield consequences down the line. If he constantly fucks people both literally and figuratively, he will have to answer for it. Ramona's lukewarm demeanor toward him after is a perfect example.

That said... This "Funk" He's in is really weird. I mean just look at this last update.
Chuck is about to learn something about these monsters that attacked him. A recent traumatic event that he has more or less obsessed over, and two of his three fucking options are to just blow it off. That is not normal.
