Something something DEM TEETH.

In a technologically advanced underground world, a thief named Hok steals a rare and illegal compilation A.I., represented by the voices of /quest/. With its help, he and the insanely deadly Rokoa begin a profitable string of disasters, death, and explosions. Then again, that seems to be a common occupation here.

Major Story Arcs

Asteroid Quest ends up as something of a large, complicated thing, encompassing several major plot arcs, lots of characters, perspective swapping, at least two different planet(oid)s, and different time zones. The fact that intermissions and side stories have a tendency to grow larger then the main quest doesn't help any.

To make things easier for the reader (and so you can do something as simple as looking up who a character was again with incurring lots and lots of spoilers) this article has been broken into parts, by story arc.

AsteroidQuest Part 1

Main article: AsteroidQuest Part 1

In his attempts to escape a storage box he's been sealed inside, Hok, miklik thief extraordinaire, discovers a rare and illegal compilation AI. With the CAI's questionable and somewhat erratic advice and extraordinary hacking abilities, he embarks on the previously mentioned string of disasters, death, and explosions.

AsteroidQuest Intermission

Main article: AsteroidQuest Intermission

In the dangerous wilds of the neumono homeworld, a green native and an offworld tourist climb a spire of the Untameable Needles on what is supposed to be a simple hunting trip. If the thread-count didn't tip you off, things end up being more complicated then they bargained for.

AsteroidQuest Part 2

Main article: AsteroidQuest Part 2

We return to the Asteroid. Things pick up at the trade hub the morning after the events of thread 1, and we get down to the the business of managing the trade hub and making zenny. No longer playing exclusively as the CAI, our perspective bounces around a bit.

AsteroidQuest Parts 3 and 4

Main article: AsteroidQuest Parts 3 and 4

In which we jump to a completely different part of the asteroid, get to find out what it's like working for the space mafia, and descend into not unwarranted full blown paranoia and alcoholism.

Polo Quest

Main article: Polo Quest

Back to Polo and the neumono homeworld. It's been several months since her last mission, and now she's been assigned to an inspection team as part of the effort to tie up some loose ends from last time.

Three Stripes Intermission

Main article: Three Stripes Intermission

Three Stripes and his neumono buddies adjust to life outside the spire and away from the Salikai and deal with strange outsider neumono instead.

AsteroidQuest Part 5

Main article: AsteroidQuest Part 5

Hok is sent to gather information on what's happening outside the hub, and ends up joining a crime gang for the heist of the... week?

Kappi's dangerous dating gets dangerously lewd.

Polo Quest 6 (April Fools Edition)

Polo the spooky ghost finally infiltrates the salikai's science mansion, fully intending to haunt the shit out of it.

The First Neumono Christmas

Main article: The First Neumono Christmas

In a parallel universe, on Christmas Eve Eve (Astreneus V's very first), Special Agent Polo of the UDA finds herself tasked with saving Christmas, after every present delivery worldwide goes missing at once.

In true Lago fashion, far longer and more complete than a holiday one-off has any business being. Basically a full length quest in it's own right.

Penn & Roxie Halloween Special

A prequel to Penn Quest (Polo Quest 6) in which Roxie drags her reluctant roommate out to have a good time and not spend one night studying. Canon, unlike most the things in this heading.

The First Neumono Valentines

A direct sequel to The First Neumono Christmas. Agent Polo's back to save Valentines from nebulous threats and a celebrity kidnapping that may or may not have ever happened.

Of course the real mystery is how the dating is going to go down, and if Polo will manage to have fun.

Polokoa Quest

Main article: Polokoa Quest

A full fledged fanquest, by Jukashi. This spinoff takes place in an absurd, over the top alternate universe where Polo and Rokoa managed to end up fused into one person. Read up through at least AsteroidQuest Part 3 if you want to recognize all the characters who show up.

Koror Quest

Main article: Koror Quest

A fanquest / spinoff by Typo and Slinko, about the titular Koror relaxing and flying his hive's newly purchased aircraft home. Really. Nothing's going to go horribly wrong this time.

Salikai

Main article: Salikai

A fanquest / spinoff by Cirr about a member of our favorite race of bug-snake mad scientists. As should surprise absolutely no one, it starts with something exploding.

The Rogue

Main article: The Rogue

A fanquest / spinoff written by Whistler and drawn by Lagotrope about a fresh rogue trying to survive after being thrown out into society on her own. Canon Compliant but unconnected to Asteroidquest plots.

Alien Amongst Aliens

A patreon funded comic about the (mis)adventures of a dungeon and dragons style kobold who finds himself transported to the Asteroid. (No connection to Cheeverse or Fen Quest style kobolds). Presented as an in-universe comic that could have been sold on the Asteroid, as well being set there (layers of meta at work).

Issue 1: Cover, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, Back Cover
Issue 2: Cover, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, Back Cover

Chronology

Main article: AsteroidQuest Chronology

The chronology of events in AsteroidQuest is somewhat complicated; we change time zones nearly as often as we change character perspective. As such, the order that threads are presented in is not necessarily the same as the order in which events occurred.

A timeline is available, but as the details are something of a spoiler, it has been given it's own page. After all, uncertainty as to exactly when and where we are in the course of the story adds to the excitement, and the speculation is part of the fun!

Other Appearances

Inside the Quest

Main article: AsteroidQuest ITQ Guide

This quest makes fairly extensive use of Inside the Quest, providing a good deal of background information on the characters and setting, as well as often filling in unanswered questions, tying up loose ends, and providing epilogues between plot arcs.

While the simplest approach may be to simply read the ITQ threads in their entirety, for readers who are concerned with spoilers, or who wish to try and preserve the original order of discovery (or simply don't wish to have to hunt for information) a full list of ITQ posts has been provided. These posts are listed in order, broken into groups by the threads they ran consecutive to, between, or after.

Poker Game

A nsfw flash poker game where you play as Polo against Pilon and Rokoa with intentionally terrible AI and an empathic advantage. It's only an alpha, and there are some bugs, but it's still good for some fun.

The game is available in fixed size and with image scaling. For the best results (resolution permitting) it may be advisable to play the fixed version at full screen with a local flash player, rather than your web browser.

Has since been ported into Python Poker Adventures and JSPoker.
