This is the Quest Thread General. Think of it as the showers in this prison.

>What is a quest?
An interactive story in which the QM (Quest Master, Quester Molester, Queer Masochist) writes and provides the readers with options on how to proceed. Dice may or may not be included due to on-site functionality.

Questionably Useful links:

>https://pastebin.com/2T37iDFQ
A collection of guides which may or may not still be active, but can be good for general writing advice to avoid common beginner's traps. Badly in need of renovation.

>Archive of quest reviews: http://pastebin.com/u/QuestReviewsArchive
Worth reading through, because the best way to figure out how a quest might go right or wrong is to see how it's been done before.

>Player question
If you were to go back and change one vote in a quest to turn out a different way, what would it be?

>QM question
What was a time/s where your players surprised you with the action they decided to vote for? Whether good or bad.

>General question
Any story's going to have important events that, had they gone different, everything down the line would have changed. Is there a particularly interesting alternative route you can imagine a quest you run or play having taken that won't be seen?

>Bonus Player question
Is there a character you hate in any quest you follow? Regardless of what the actual player character's IC opinion of them is.

>Gluteal sulcus question
Is there anything that you want to ask of your QMs to do more of? Whether or not you've actually brought it up in the threads, as you really ought to.

>Bonus General question
It's time for the arbitrarily scheduled QTG quest survey. List what active quests you currently follow, for the benefit of science. Only a fraction of /qst/'s audience even hangs out here, but it might be worth knowing. No judgment of your taste. After all, you're posting in here, aren't you?

Valen. ForgottenQM's quests. Dolomite but he's not running anything (fuck you)
I hate it when the players in a quest want to play a goody-two-shoes every single time. ForgottenQMs playerbase is especially faggy. Oh nooo we killed the alien bug who is so forgettable I don't even remember who he was, lets go cry about it! Even though the MC is supposed to be a stone cold killer. bleh

I think the one if Space Monke Supreme Ruler that led to the smartest Blue Hazaar in the known universe hating our civilization, maybe... But then, we still don't know how that will shake out.

>What was a time/s where your players surprised you with the action they decided to vote for? Whether good or bad.
I didn't expect my players to spare both Edwin and Paula, or to free Mina's mind. I'm pleasantly surprised at how attached some players have gotten to my supporting cast of NPCs.

>Is there a particularly interesting alternative route you can imagine a quest you run or play having taken that won't be seen?
In my quest, I guess there's the human defector or rogue agent paths, which were given up for loyalty and piety. Tonally, joining the guards would have led to a VERY different feel than what we ended up with.

In other quests... I'm curious what would have happened in Royal Rumble if Garlend had never been crippled, whether Ingar in Space Monke Supreme Ruler would have been a good Supreme, and in what would have happened in Beastfolk Quest had kept going with Kora's original plotline of forming a furry transformation cult.

>Is there a character you hate in any quest you follow? Regardless of what the actual player character's IC opinion of them is.
You know, I don't think so. Maybe Tetreus of Apprentice & The Dwarf, but he's designed to be sort of hateable, and I enjoy and appreciate him in his role OOC.

>Is there anything that you want to ask of your QMs to do more of?
Nothing springs to mind, except to keep on keeping on with the quality and regularity of updates.

>List what active quests you currently follow, for the benefit of science.

In Created I would have made the bird pope the winner, loved that lil nigga.
>QM
For a while people were debating on whether or not to eat the sole teenage female companion, but they haven't gone through with it yet.
>General
If the players didn't get lucky and have a token, they would have had to slaughter the entire facility, which would bring down a whole lot more heat on themselves and lead to a bunch more conflicts with the group hunting them, as well as a personality change and possibly a companion change.
>Bonus Player
Back when that Worm quest was running with the Joker ripoff protag, I fucking despised the Harley Quinn rip off that every other player was lusting for. But I also generally dislike first girl syndrome.

>QM question
There was this one time early on in Bones Quest where players near-unanimously voted to head down to the boiler room of the protagonist's workplace to blow up an entire dog bone factory. After fighting the bad guy and heading all the way down there, they then completely changed their mind and continued being sneaky. Not exactly out of character, but it threw me for a loop!

That and the sheer amount of diplomancy going on. Maybe combat just isn't that entertaining, but there are a [i]lot[/i] of decisions where players made pals with baddies. Takes me by surprise every time, but I think it's actually made things better in the long run!

>General question
My players avoided interacting with the protagonist's employers for a good two threads or so--things were going to be much different if they hadn't eventually smoothed things over with them.

Things would have been much more different too if players hadn't decided to deal with Talbot early on.

>Gluteal sulcus question
Don't flake?

>Bonus General question
Gaol, Drowned Redux, Lego, Violent Masquerade, Batman, Knife Girl, Trust a Goblin (Catching up, at least), Records of Honor, Bong the Sorcerer, and Cave Crawler (assuming all the number crunch doesn't drive the QM off). I also dipped in and out of Space Monke--eager for the next thread!

Speaking of next threads, it's a fresh QTG, so I might as well shill my quest again!

>After a centuries-old lich came back to life during her graveyard shift at the Good Boy Doggie Bone Factory, Stanley Parble, janitor and plucky quest protagonist, sets off with a cast of unlikely companions to save her hometown of CLEARWATER from bloodthirsty skeletons!

If you're looking for a rules-lite quest with attempts at humor, shitty drawings, and plenty of opportunities for creativity, look no further! We're on Thread 15 already, but it's not that hard to catch up--honest! You can even find a link to the archives in the current thread!

>>If you were to go back and change one vote in a quest to turn out a different way, what would it be?
I don't care how long ago it happened or how hairy Chryssa's cunt was; she was best girl and Soma did her wrong by going with the obvious samefag vote.

>>General question

Same. We wouldn'tve been stuck with the one party member so boring you don't even remember she got gangraped most of the time, and instead fucked around with awesome viking dwarves or whatever the fuck those were and did more character-driven ancient ruin shit and maybe murdered a dragon.

>>Is there a character you hate in any quest you follow? Regardless of what the actual player character's IC opinion of them is.

Callisto on Maximum Spider Quest (which is the best quest on the board right now). Not because of her personality, not that there's been a whole lot to it up until this point, but because she's a mutie and muties should fuck off to their own universe instead of clogging up 616 and getting clogged up by the rest of 616 in turn. Marvel has so many goddamn characters with so many different powers that it's just a permanent burden on my suspension of disbelief no matter what I'm reading and I hate it. I hope Krakoa packs literally all of them all up and fucks off forever to its own franchise.

>>Is there anything that you want to ask of your QMs to do more of? Whether or not you've actually brought it up in the threads, as you really ought to.
Any given thread should update more than it does just because I want them to. Having a life is gay.

>>>Bonus General question
Max Spider, Supreme Space Monke, Paintaway Palace, Starving Creature. Also gonna catch up with Barovian Legends because Kossuth seems pretty metal, but I gotta finish reading a thing on RR first that's actually somehow better than being in a live quest.

What decides when a new qtg is made? And how is the OP chosen?
>>
>>5201347
Near as I can tell, it is arbitrary on both fronts: some enterprising anon decides the old thread is done, and they choose or create the OP. By general accord, nobody else attempts to create a warring thread with a different OP during that time; there can only be one.
>>
>>5201347
>What decides when a new qtg is made?
When whoever decides to make it first decides to post a new one.
>And how is the OP chosen?
Whoever posts the thread picks it.

There's no actual process unless somebody decides to have one and asks around, literally anybody can do it if they feel like it, at any time, but common courtesy at least demands that you have an actual reason to post a new one if there's already one on the board. When the old thread is over one thousand posts the thread starts to fuck up and it gets much slower to load, and when it's down at page 9 it'll be gone soon anyways, so that's an ideal time to do it.

Spymaster Anti Isekai Quest:

Overpowered Japanese Teenagers threatening the social order in YOUR stable Empire? It's more likely than you think! Click here for free Isekai scan!

Use logic, force of arms, and generally things available to well bred and trained aristocrats of a feudal medieval state against the unknown threat of idealistic outworlders who simply cannot abide your righteous and holy way of life. They may have cheat powers, but you have spies, soldiers, and the authority of the Emperor on your side!. Many will die, but that is a price Emperor Alkaign is willing to pay.

The biggest problem on /qst/ are unprofessional QMs.

Nothing makes me lose interest in a quest more then a 4th wall breaking or meta shit in the first post. No attempt to even try and stay in character. Everything to do with immersion and a narrative is thrown out the window. Imagine if you opened novel and the first chapter, not foreword, was the author speaking plainly about the book before launching into the story without a page break or anything. 4chan memes and commentary should never mix in fictional text without a clear seperation.

Look how many threads in the catalog have something like that in the first post. "This is a quest where..." and "I promised you an X quest...". These quests are completely spoiled from the beginning and the QMs should make a new thread and start over.

>>Player question
#noregerts

>>QM question
My players talk-no-jutsu'd an enemy into joining us. I was convinced he'd end up as an unwilling captive, rather than an ally.

>>General question

The quest would have gone very differently if we either chose the other drawback or we didn't go and eavesdrop at a very crucial moment. Or, theoretically, we might've met a certain, teleporting main-character earlier-on had we also chosen something differently.

>>Bonus Player question

Nope. If I'm in the quest and voting, then that means I like what they're doing so far.

This happens so frequently I can't even think of a specific instance. I think I need to start applying reverse psychology: every time I think "the players will/won't vote for this" they're bound to do the opposite.

This isn't quite the same thing as an alternate route, but a write-in near the end of Thread 14 (the response to the swordfish god) plus a few other things shortly afterwards (double-critfailing and losing the Crown, opting to delete your memories of being a terrible person) ended up radically changing how I write the MC and how I see the quest progressing in the future. It's hard to conceptualize how things would've turned out otherwise, since there's multiple factors, but Charlotte could've easily become a way worse person than she currently is.

You are about to begin reading Italo Calvino's new novel, If on a winter's
night a traveler. Relax. Concentrate. Dispel every other thought. Let the world
around you fade. Best to close the door; the TV is always on in the next room.
Tell the others right away, "No, I don't want to watch TV!" Raise your voice—
they won't hear you otherwise—"I'm reading! I don't want to be disturbed!"
Maybe they haven't heard you, with all that racket; speak louder, yell: "I'm
beginning to read Italo Calvino's new novel!" Or if you prefer, don't say
anything; just hope they'll leave you alone.

>>5201122
>If you were to go back and change one vote in a quest to turn out a different way, what would it be?
I don't really feel bad about any of my votes, but I would probably push harder against getting MC possessed by a demon in Reptilian Infiltrator.
I suppose we could've spared the Foxwoman and worked out things with her instead, but those were... chaotic times.
>Is there a particularly interesting alternative route you can imagine a quest you play having taken that won't be seen?
Not getting possessed by the aforementioned demon would change a lot in terms of how the MC had to tackle hard objectives (mechanics-wise) and how certain situations would play out. The demon lets us just survive normally lethal attacks, shapeshift, cheese some interactions and brainwash people, among other things.
>Is there a character you hate in any quest you follow?
I don't think so. There are some that I dislike or find their demeanor irritating, but can't say I personally hate any of them.
>Is there anything that you want to ask of your QMs to do more of?
Tell your players when you're taking a break from writing and touch grass at least once a week. This applies to all QMs.
>List what active quests you currently follow
In no particular order:
>Reptilian Infiltrator Quest
>Digital Monster Quest
>Lego Quest Presents
>Western Quest(ern)
>Haremvania Quest
>Bong the Sorcerer
>Knight(s) Quest
>Angel Quest
>KNIFE GIRL

>>5201137
>I'm pleasantly surprised at how attached some players have gotten to my supporting cast of NPCs.
Your characters tend to be very likeable so it's not a surprise. I don't think that killing Edwin and Paula would be reasonable and Mina was the closest thing we had to a non-reptilian ally and keeping her enthralled would just feel wrong.

Since I don't really follow anything right now I'm just going to write down a pet peeve of mine. I hate it when it feels like the world bend over to accommodate player choices even if they're bad, unrealistic or breaking characterization up to that point, some times it feels less like influencing a character decisions and the consequence thereof and more akin to a reader/voter power fantasy.

Just how salacious does /qst/ allow for it's drawfags?

Sexual imagery?

I wouldn't try full frontal, but anything else is probably fine.

Depends on how explicit it is. Pinup poses are probably fine, anime orgasm faces are probably fine, two people actually having sex probably isn't (unless you heavily censor/imply it like Gaol Quest does).

>Mind sharing what would happen if Ismena joined the guards?
I don't have the entire thing plotted out, but probably way more emphasis on overtly sabotaging investigations, planting evidence, and building martial prowess and connections in the government.

>And actually, was it guards or paladins?
The Infiltrator originally expressed interest in joining the Paladins, but they have no female members, and Sir Chase laughed at the notion and suggested you could be a good nursemaid to the gryphons, essentially. Either that or guard duty could have segued into worming your way into the Paladins as their first female squire, and going on more traditional adventures outside of the Hawksong urban centre.

Depends on the quest. While people haven't gone pure evil or anything, the MC in my quest has been voted into making some fairly monstrous or villainous decisions. Scumbag Antipaladin was exactly what it said on the tin, and was a popular quest while it ran. Charles de Villeroi from Local Lord Quest is a bit of a shitheel, albeit a pious one. Kobold Swamp Survival Civ stars a vicious little asshole as its lead character, and in it the Kobolds just butchered some ailing humans in an opportunistic massacre.

>>5202949
Gender Bender DNA Twister Extreme was a weirdly sexless version of that, and it was pretty good. My quest has some light /d/ in it.

>QM question
Hmm, tough question. Off the top of my head I can't say I've ever been that deeply surprised by my players choices. I suppose choosing to engage the Deathclaw in Enclave remnant quest, but I blame myself for that personally as much of a battle monster Ford was that was a horribly out of character option to even allow, boy was to smart for that.

>General question
Well there's plenty of situations that could have gone differently, from character creation to the first major mission. I'll note that the whole tone of Enclave Remnant quest would have changed if they had actually gotten that crit during the infiltration of Navarro. As many had correctly surmised the crit success was indeed the Nuclear launch codes for the Divide, getting those would have done both wonderful and horrible things for the morale and ideological bents of the Remnants. Would have been very interesting to write.

>Bonus General Question
At the Moment only 2nd Primarch quest, actually just caught up to it, Gods speed Malal you crazy bastard.

On that note, catching up on that really got my heart pumping, it's made me rather nostalgic so I'm a bit curious, want to get a feeling for things. When I finish Act 1 properly of my current quest, How would people feel about me bringing back Enclave Remnant quest. I know I said I was done with it, way back when, but to be frank the last 6 months and recent events have me rather inspired and I find my thoughts drifting back to it, I hate to see it unfinished the way it is as in honestly the story was rather close to a climatic confrontation and it's been frustrating me to no end whenever I think about how it's not done. So I want to know if there'd be any interest in seeing it come back to give it the send off and ending it deserves after I'm done with Act 1 of Beneath the Pale Moon.

I have been saying this ever since the third quest I played and even took some backlash for it with /qtg/ saying anyone wanting to play evil must have mental issues. Counterpoint: these faggots have a massive hero syndrome.
Also hate those sad fuckers who will try to have a meaningful romance with the first female NPC they see and have a happy little group of friends in EVERY QUEST. EVERY. FUCKING. QUEST.

It's something I've considered, Lot of factors and things that people did enjoy came after it though, but it definitely soured and slowed my tempo and mood while writing.

Would the results be better to start from the FOB after getting +7 to operational success on the infiltration team? Possibly.

I suppose it'd depend on how the potential players felt about starting from basically the elections except there were no deathclaws and the FoB was just fully and healthily established.

Otherwise I'm just fine with pretending it never happened and having it stricken from the canon like the horrible little mistake that it was and just pick up from the start of the Granite company ambush.

"They Will Hold Us Responsible" is a Metroid quest set immediately after Fusion. Instead of the Galactic Federation shrugging its shoulders and giving Samus a hi-five for discovering state secrets and destroying them, along with a vibrant and historically significant planet, without orders, they will be all up in her business trying to keep her silent. More silent than usual, anyway.

Let us say that in a game there are two types of bullets, cheap and premium. The cheap bullets cost USD1 and the premium bullets cost USD10 per shot.

For the purposes of the game, they are functionally the same, damage, ballistics etc, the expensive bullets are maybe a bit shinier and nicer, come with better cosmetic branding and packaging, but mostly identical.

Now because of various reasons, the price of ammunition goes up by USD1 for both.

So the cheap bullets now cost USD2, the expensive premium bullets are now USD11.

Which bullets do you buy? (Give reasons)

>1/ Cheap bullets, USD2 per shot still pretty cheap, you can afford a lot more of them

>2/ Expensive bullets, USD11 per shot. They are so shiny! Shiny!

>3/ Expensive bullets, because cheap bullets went up by 100%, whilst the premium bullets went up by only 10%

>4/ Cheap bullets, because if they went up by 100%, they might go up even more. You could hoard and re-sell them. Become a post-apocalyptic ammunition merchant or Bullet Shaman. Something something convexity trade?

>5/ Another hidden reason...? State what you think that could be. (Do the prices matter?)

>6/ You want to steal all the ammunition and shoot the bullets back into the face of whoever invented this scenario

Pragmatism is sexier than cosmetics, and it is more pragmatic to have more bullets on the dollar and to stay away from harebrained scenarios like trying to get up to market manipulation antics in a huge industry where everyone who would disapprove of this literally deals bullets.

If they are the exact same in everything but looks, I don't care if the bullets doubled in price while the premium ones only had a 10% increase.

I can still buy five cheap bullets for one premium bullet. Or eleven of them for two premium ones. Why wouldn't I get the cheaper bullets?

ah you're the dude who speaks in riddles. also the whole Third Law of Demand principle kinda falls flat when the "higher quality" thing is functionally the same outside of looking prettier.

It's one thing picking between good coffee and shitty coffee. The price difference actually impacts the quality. Your expensive and cheap bullet example has them be functionally identical, so why would people be compelled to buy the higher quality one?

Especially when the price difference is still fucking outrageous at a 138% difference.

Of course the expensive premium ammunition is better and more reliable, why otherwise would it be so expensive... But would it actually make any difference? If you knew the expensive bullets were slightly more reliable, would that even affect what you chose? It is all meaningless! Ahahahaha!

Depends what utility you are utilizing them for. Maybe the Vietnamese slave laborers loading the premium bullets take care to load an extra 2 grains of powder in each bullet. This would make them still mostly identical to the standard bullets. Or what if you shoot a poor enemy and he gets demoralized by seeing your premium bullets, knowing he only has enough of a budget for the standard bullets, because his mom is on a fixed income, and he has to take her grocery shopping twice a month? Obviously leading to an inferiority complex which will dash his confidence, and thus his aim and resolve to stay in the fight. Only an amateur like you would forget to factor in such crucial details.

okay maybe they're 1 to 5% better, doesn't fucking matter when you can get 50 "shitty" bullets for a hundred bucks instead of only 9 "good" ones. You gotta realize you got to account for missing your damn shots, no human being is 100% accurate.

An OC superhero quest. You play as an older, experienced super hero with a variety of powers and/or gadgets that come from a curated list that you write- with players getting to select them through choices made in flashbacks and memory segments. The idea is that this hero isn't in the beginning stages and already has a bitter long-standing rival with thematically appropriate countering powers, dead sidekicks, ex-super lovers, and may even be considering retiring soon. The quest is about what happens when a super hero puts up their cape for good and how they can pass the torch to new talent so the world still has a protector.

I actually wanted to run this quest myself due to having a very fun super hero powerset idea- but I am currently too invested in running Space Monke Quest and would rather not run two quests at a time.

I agree, but only if the servants are OCs. It'll cut down on Waifufags, at least early one. Also, it'd be fucking hype as fuck if the PC summons a rider or meets an enemy who has them as their servants and the ST just drops this https://youtu.be/1snEYPg8TXs

Oc servants for fate are an untapped gold mine, especially for quests. I wanna see Rider Red Baron fighting against Avenger (or archer) Audie Murphy before Berserker the Viking at Stamford bridge interrupts it

>>5204526

Eighty years ago, five great heroes brought peace to the continent. Fifty-five years later, one of the two surviving heroes, the mage Raskal, teams up with Empress Enid of the Highlands to assassinate king Grant of Falkirk and his family. With this, Enid unites the continent of Falkirk into The Empire. Twenty-five years later, you play a young noble who rallies the remaining knights to start a revolution against Enid, her son Galagas, and Raskal and his evil magic. But rumors rise that Raskal seeks to release the Demons from the underworld, and provoke a new Demon Battle among humans, Demons and angels!

No, you're right. Better to pick up from where you left at the end of the second thread. Hope you get back to it and stick with it, it's got the potential to go for a lot of threads. I'd give Ford more time for social interactions though, especially with his own squad. It sets the stakes for all the mechanical parts of the quest and makes it more compelling overall in my opinion.

Side note: I found it weird that Ford didn't get the Courier's name despite him hearing it being called.
>>
>>5204743
I appreciate the suggestion and interest.

on the side note: That was just narrative fiat, me keeping it vague because I didn't really feel like assigning the name at the time. Honestly I just prefer the simplicity of just calling him 'The Courier'.

Alternatively beyond my personal reason it's possible that Ford heard it but wasn't listening for it at the time so it didn't quite stick in his head since the Courier didn't give it to him personally if you want a more in universe explanation for it.

ISA or Helghans ? Or mercs i guess. There was a PSP game with that. Making money from both sides. Still seeing it from the side of the Helghans could be nice.

I actually really enjoy Smelter's writing style, and feel it adjusts to suit the story being told somewhat, like in the Civquest he ran (which differed noticeably from Hobo Epic or Craigslist Killer).

That said, despite our quests being grouped together in this /qtg/ not without reason, since the MC of RIQ is actually a rapist and murderer at this point, I honestly just can't get into (Yaa)CKQ... Ironically because I find the main character and his antics just too viscerally unpleasant.

Staying as a Dragon Guard could've been tempting, but there's a conspiracy against House Andrei so remaining in Cathagi is out of the question. We finish the pilgrimage and return home post-haste in my opinion.

It's the best option since we got told by literally everyone to get the fuck out of town for a while. People want to fight the Prince, the Nobles, the Fae, the Beastmen, the Snakemen, and the other nobles all at once. People are hopped up on our recent successes with no fucking idea of what gathering power is all about.

It's like they totally forgot what the first thread ended in.

Oh yeah, not to mention we've been asked to do so by the Queensmen who we owe a debt to, for the good of the realm.

Honestly I see it the other way around, just a few vocal anons hopped up on Muh Dragon and "Emile can do whatever he wants". Like, goddamn dude, we can't keep relying on crits. Remember the fight against the Basilisk? How we would have been bodied entirely if it weren't for Jess?

Sticking around, alienating both major factions as well as the third "hidden" "nuetral" faction, being a broke ass son of a minor noble? I mean, if that's how the votes go then fine but I don't think people are gonna get the results they're expecting.

Oh yeah and we also already know too much vis-a-vis the Church and the Sins and we have treated with the Fae and are fucking travelling with one so it's not like we can realistically expect help from that angle.

Like, the argument "We can't stay in Cathay, House Andrei needs us!" Makes no fucking sense at all. Hell, we have even more support in Cathay than we do at home from the Queensmen infiltrated there being able to help us, the Diplomat lady we escorted having connections to help us, and an invitation to join the DG from a major personage whose faction is actively seeking allies.

Going to the DG gets us a significant amount of wealth, a major boost in reputation, the favor of a major domestic faction, and avoids drawing our family as a target for the Prince's/Kingsmen faction.

For the love of god, IC I hope we can at least talk to our sisters about the plan if not our mother because ignoring the DG opportunity at the cost of burning all our political bridges is a Bad Idea.

But hey, if that's how the votes go, then Forgotten has shown that he's quite capable of writing excellent tragedy and heroes and hubris go together like 4chan and faggots.

You the same anon that got dug in on the argument in the last few threads? because I think I recognise you're posts and frankly I wish I could you're tism for STV.

I think if you think anyone is going in blind to the risks they would be taking in Canton is frankly kind of arrogant, any good Knigga knows how lethal the system is and that things can spiral quite badly with bad rolls but thats the game and personally I think it makes for more fun when brushing with death and uncertainty than taking the surefire route to success and yes that might mean going against the odds and risking failure to an unfavorable degree.

To the second point on politics I don't actually think we've alienated the Queensmen, we have good terms with Sir Gilbern and the madlad knight seems to have a good opinon of us and if I recall correctly the language used with Sir Gilbern was non-commital enough to have wriggle room to not be clad to the commitment in Carthaggi should we choose to return home, conversly returning wouldn't lock us out from further cooperation.

The kingsguard we have little information on besides the extremely important stuff we gleaned from the ball in Pascae but granted their are influential players who have made clear what they may do to us should we cross them again.

I don't recall anything about a third faction but I can believe theirs one and there are plenty of uncommited players on the board like the Bluejays, maybe even the Vancewells now that Hast is dead.

The last thing to remember is Carthaggi is a world away and a long term commitment, it is almost wholly divorced from the affairs of Canton from what we know and we may very well be unlikely to leave once commited to the detriment of friends, families and the realm and we are underadvised as to any caveats it has in store for us once employed.

at the end of the day STV is about adventure and risk and the the knights code and not all of it can be forfilled safely.

You waste hours of your life making a curated story for the worst person reading your quest.

You waste hours reading a quest where your story is guided by the biggest asshole in the thread.

Pretending this is not true is the only thing that keeps this board alive. Aggressively attacking anyone who speaks this truth is the only thing that keeps this board alive.

DG would take less time than it does to go away to school and get a degree.

Sir Gilbern might like us, but he sure AF ain't gonna stick his neck out for us if we refuse to help the Queensmen, and by extension our Nation, in Cathay.

As for the Prince, he told us to disappear and DG is just the easiest and most profitable way to do so, gaining us wealth, status, and allies in Court. Because when you ask a Prince "You and what army?" They actually have one. Not to mention they could just cut our home off financially, pressure our neighbours, and ruin our reputation.

The third faction is the "Neutral" lords headed by that one Archduke I think? With the Pegasus on the border.

Anyways, my main complaint is that nobody, including you, proposes any other plan besides the DG just "Go home and maybe hit shit" with the excuse that our family needs us, despite the fact that we're the ones bringing danger there. It's so fucking retarded.

At least try to think of a way to start a crusade against the Deadmen, or join the Neutrals and fight the snakemen using our Horsetrader contacts or SOMETHING.
>>
>>5206149
>>5206134
Oh, and DG is really the only reasonable way to follow through with the Sons of Sin right now.
>>
>>5206149
A lot changes in a year let alone three, I don't think you have the right to claim what sir Gilbern would or wouldn't do since we've spent a total of two moments with the man and only one was with confidence in who we are and what we value, anyway the DG sure has access to wealth and status but those are both connected to loyally serving and sticking too the three year term and both are struck out if we leave early and we can't say for certain our status or allies would readily transplant themselves back to Canton readily or easily.

The prince did tell us to bugger off but beyond where he basically didn't care and his understanding of our goals led to an assumption if intimidated it would be far far away, their is no metric to weither he'd make good on it and he has bigger fish to fry than one meddling Knigga who got in over his head and walked into a situation where he could be easily put on his ass.

Sure the potential for a difficult spot is their but moving mountains for one unlanded insignificant dude is inordinante and probably even unecessary to his mind

my current theory is the Duke of Montbrune is aligned to the kingmen and is close to losing his title to the Vancewells who I believes have the Pegasus as their coat of Arms and in an attempt to dig for gold or something to generate wealth uncovered a Sin in Montbrune which lead the Kingsmen to the Fallavon ruins

you have a good point though in that their has been little proposals as to a planned alternative, personally I'd like to pursue Vancewell as a Wife since her status as heir is enough to net the attention of a Duke and her house certainly has the powerbase to back it up if her ambition is to be believed, we'd also be in a good position to build things up with the Rabes and maybe even getting involved with the Snakemen storm that seems to be brewing Though I suspect we might have to play a little dirty to get Rabe onside

Poor you.
Just to be clear, no, I'm not saying you should shut up and enjoy whatever QMs decide to throw at you just because it's free. Nor am I saying that you can't criticize a quest or a QM, for that matter. What I'm saying is that a QM's playstyle, which is what seemingly got you all riled up in your post, has absolutely no bearing on whether they're "professional" or not. I'll take a 4th-wall-breaking QM that likes to goof around but manages to stick to a schedule and stay consistent with their updates throughout the duration of their quest over some epic faggot QM running an epic muh realisms quest in an epic grimdark land with epic consequences in an era of epic epicness but flakes halfway into the first thread any day.
Also, you should probably define "meta shit" and provide some examples of those horrible QMs that have wronged you in the past and whose work has offended you so, just so we can have a better picture of what's going on here. Otherwise it just sounds like you're bitching.
>>
>>5207331
Do you have any plans for a new quest afterward?
A few ideas, yeah.

One would be a direct successor to RIQ with a new protagonist, either a human adventurer battling Reptoid conspiracies or [REDACTED FOR POSSIBLE SPOILERS]

Another would be a direct successor to my last quest: Amican Loyalist Quest. It was a Civquest, but I'd probably do something more personal, with a smaller faction and an emphasis on the leader's characterization, based on feedback from the first attempt and how much more successful RIQ was.

I was also toying with other sorts of attempts at a lite Civquest, possibly involving:

A goblinoid bandit crew

An outcast clan of elves

Golems activated after a long period of dormancy in a desert waste

Lastly, I was considering running a God Game-inspired multiplayer worldbuilding/divine skirmish kind of game, but I'm not sure I have the time, to be completely desu. I might consider rolling some aspect of that into [REDACTED] though...

> In a similar style or otherwise?
I'd probably use some variant on the stat and rolling system from RIQ. It seems to be popular, and it works well for my writing process.
>>
>>5206157
I mean, allies come and allies go we all have our own lives.

Personally, I just don't see how we're going to get enough money to pay for a Crusade other than the DG. I would love to lead one i to the Deadlands though, since those are far and away the biggest threat to our home and family.

The issue is that crusades cost money, and gathering up people to crusade costs money. I don't want to lead a Peasant crusade where most of them die, or have the Church declare us a Heretic either for the Prince or because our involvement with the SoS. Political allies will help majorly with that.

Not to mention shacking up with Vancewell, she comes off as a stone cold fox who will put her goals and her duty to her family above throwing it all away for some charming and noble but unforgivably weak position Knigga.

But I digress. My second suggestion of we reject DG is to go east and fight the Snakemen, try to get a bunch of Stallions, and use them as the initial hiring fee for dispossessed Kniggas so that we can go crusade against Deadmen and make our home territory more stable. Ideally we could maybe promise the dispossessed Knights land from our gains as a long term payment, but that would require the consent of the Courts and we seem to be washing our hands or outright antagonizing any relationships with all the ruling factions. That's a much later bridge to cross though, so it's more something to keep in mind than to freak out about right away.

Probably take much longer than the DG honestly, and we wouldn't have nearly the amount of support from local organizations and contacts we've already established, and we would probably make less wealth but there's an outside chance we could actually get more money.

>If you were to go back and change one vote in a quest to turn out a different way, what would it be?
I’ve been a fan of Boshin War for years, and I’ve always wondered what would’ve happened if we had chosen to defect and rebel against the Shogunate. Would’ve been the more interesting route in my opinion, operating under the information available when the decision was made.

>What was a time/s where your players surprised you with the action they decided to vote for? Whether good or bad.
It’s a small thing, but I remember having a covert exchange go down at a carnival. I suggested a few games / amusements to kill time until your contact showed up. For fun, and to blend with the crowd. I wasn’t anticipating the anons to purposefully win a stuffed animal so that they could head to the restroom, cut it open, and stuff the package inside. Thought it was neat.

>Any story's going to have important events that, had they gone different, everything down the line would have changed. Is there a particularly interesting alternative route you can imagine a quest you run or play having taken that won't be seen?
I was actually intending for my quest to just be from the perspective of a powerless mook, mostly because I thought it’d be neat to try something different. Anons ended up critting during the first mission, and bonded to an ancient magical artifact which radically shifted my plans for the rest of the quest.

>Is there a character you hate in any quest you follow? Regardless of what the actual player character's IC opinion of them is.
I’m not quite sure I understand the question, but I’ll take a crack at it. If it’s a character I dislike personally, it’d have to be the mother in Enclave Remnant quest. Just rubs me the wrong way.

I can probably answer on behalf of the anons. “Finish the goddamn interlude already.” It’ll come, just been harder than I’d like to get it hammered into a shape I’m happy with.

Haven’t had much time for quests other than my own, unfortunately. I have tried to keep up-to-date with Enclave Remnant though. I have no proof to support my claims, but I was the anon that came up with Ford’s full name. Truly a proud day for me.

That is true we have devloped something of a nascent cult during our Pilgrimage and particularly in Pascae and more than a few seem willing to take up arms due to our Influence or the Fathers proselytising but I believe our classification as a minor Saint eludes us for now since the hearing didn't confirm us as such yet. No matter what our personal shoulder Angel says

>>5207733
We have methods of generating capital such as Carvans and fighting batles, hell maybe even things we haven't learned about yet, the DG generates a lot on completion and only a little for the trial which has me suspicioius of its contents.

>have the Church declare us a Heretic either for the Prince or because our involvement with the SoS.
The church and Prince aren't aligned in the slightest from what we know, if anything the church is his biggest opponent since they basically run the biggest running opponent he has, to that end any heresy charges are going to be from the church itself or maybe some bullshit machivellian intrigue.

As for Vancewell well yes she's a cold fox but our biggest exhibit of further characterisation got shit upon badly. She doesn't seem to have a particular allegiance to her family outside of her own ambition which we know is considerable, granted I would agree we got to her with a solid game plan of how to marry her be it killing her father while he still lacks a male heir or Uncovering some dirt that legitimises him as a Villian.

That second suggestion is pretty amazing I'm kinda envious of it, Emille has done that shit before with Sir Dan so he's not out of the ballpark when it comes to thinking of that.

>Probably take much longer than the DG honestly
I don't know besides the wealth needed, those opportunities seem present in the coming future

Anon, the situation is fine for him. He's a rich, well-connected old man. He won't really see the consequences even if it fails -- he'd be assassinated and replaced, sparing him irrelevance and physical/mental decline. Alternatively, he'll achieve some measure of success and be lauded by his nation as the man who revived Russia's superpower status. Either way, he will be written of in history books forever.

Russia may lose, but Putin has already won.

The unsightly truth is that Quests and such are inherently niche and hopping ship to another questing platform won't solve anything beyond the domain of the placebo effect.
The most people know about Quests in general is probably Rubyquest, and even then they likely only heard of it sparingly, never taking the time to read it. The only way to get to the level of activity that people want is to prod the outer internet zeitgeist. I said this half-ironically before, but yes. one method of "prodding the zeitgeist" includes making a fucking friday night funkin' mod.

How the fuck do i balance an economy out or handle payouts so players don't automatically fuck the system?

Some of the best experiences in quests are where people dive into autistic minutiae, theories and elaborate planning because they are invested and passionate in the quest. It becomes sperging when they can't agree and start bickering over whose autism is correct.

I used to LOVE writing CYOAs. I never liked the direction they evolved into- having like 4+ pages of options and costs/lore dumps is just too much investment for one picture.

It'd be the best if QM was aware he can just drop a blogpost explaining to the autist how the quest actually works and stating his thoughts on the matter so they both stop producing triple the content he does.

I am really afraid of showing off my quest here, actually, regardless if they do wrath me or not. But I know its the same anon because the image (along with its filename) posted is also on my archives.

Thank you for that reminder, reading that again reminds me of the good old days of Hostile Anon grumbling and biting anon’s heads off for no reason. That shit was a riot.

GnollQM here. Been giving it a lot of thought lately and I finally decided to drop the quest altogether to start a new one that takes place in the same universe. Surely some of you may not be happy about this but, hear me out for a second, I bet you’re gonna love the fresh concept. This time, you'll play as a human adventurer who sets out from home to wander the world, enslaving on his path countless of forest spirits, demons and angels, brainwashing them with the power of friendship and making them fight each other with their cool powers and flashy techniques. Action, romance, betrayal - you’ll find it all in this epic story. Stay tuned for the 1st thread of Gnolkémon, coming out soon!

Seriously though, Gnoll Quest will continue somewhere in between 10th-15th of this month. Got a big load of work coming and I'm still rereading the plot, planning some stuff, etc, so see you all until then, God willing.

After a lot of side quests, the MC has arrived to the demon capital.

Right now we have:
-A unbalance runic programming magic system.
-A man-eating slave dryad milf.
-A few nerds with too much dynamite.
-Police brutality by the automatons of a dead nation.
-The promise of more tomboys.
-So much worlbuilding I’m considering making a wiki.
-Confirmation that one god was just a human xenophile.
-The MC is a McGuffin on the scale of a tactical nuke.
-Someone summited gorefield to be included into the city... so theres that.
-Its an ocasional drawquest.

Genuinely surprised anyone actually likes those segments. Those are kind of forced in since they make sense in universe (even Meth Pope has to kind of know what he's talking about on that.) I fully expect most players to gloss their eyes at such segments and just wait for the parts when people blow each other up or some shit. It's not like I am myself some kind of theologian (especially in a religion I've explicitly said I don't actually follow or anything) so I get it. But bringing up the quest brings up a difficult subject...

I must come clean! I will not be making EFTV! It will not happen! It will be a quietly dropped promise. As if I promised to come back after getting cigs only to disappear into the night. As if I was a Nigga (Quest) or something! This is due to problems relating to chronic alcohol abuse; I am currently on a horrible bender! I am intoxicated as I type this! Verily, there is no hope...

April Fools! It's currently April 2nd, at least on the US East Coast while being April 1st on the West Coast, where the one-shot/gaiden/spin-off is set, so there is no better time to reveal that I was trying to do a joke for the holiday. I was just joking in the paragraph above, of course. Except for the part about being intoxicated and on a bender, but that's not new... Thread is up elsewhere

>>5215877
>This is more direct political commentary than anything Nigga Quest had to offer
That's because Nigga Quest was barely even commentary. It was just a trollish meme quest preaching to the choir of /pol/ people who were already "redpilled", or irreverent memesters who like to think they're above and beyond things like "politics" or "otehr people's feelings". Which, like... It's 4chan, so that shouldn't surprise anyone who's been here for way too long like me.

Perhaps even describing the result, chronologically. Say, 3d20 'roll to stab the thug with your sword' and you get 7, 3, 20:
"You hold the sword with an unsteady hand, trembling as you take a few steps toward the thug. The thug, on the other hand, laughs as you almost tripped on your third step - but he ceased his laughter - and his breath - when the same unsteady hand accidentally struck him right in the throat, killing the thug on the spot."
Mite b cool for a bumbling hero type of character.

>>5216043
Or perhaps sorry.. I was thinking a group of characters. Each character also represents a resource and most choices are about betting the characters against the challenges. More characters working together on one task means higher degree of success. Players have to decide which tasks to prioritize. I was thinking perhaps rolling 1 means a resource/character will be permanently degraded... but then what would happen when a task fails because there's noone assigned to it?

Does this even make any sense

>>5216055

There's an adventuring party. Each character has some resources at their disposal (each resource is 1d4), let's say:
Rahmad feels confident and has climber's kit (2d4)
Leanda has all her spells prepared (1d4)
Kedrol is cheerful and has one vial of acid (2d4)

Let's say the party encounters two orcs. One is scary, determined and has a big fucking sword (3d4), second is desperate (1d4). Players can vote for example to send Rahmad and Kedrol against the first orc (4d4 vs 3d4) and Leanda against the second orc (1d4 vs 1d4).

If you lose the opposed roll, involved characters will acquire trauma (wounded, tired etc.). If character acquires their fourth trauma, they are knocked out/dead.
Rolling 1, regardless of final outcome, spends a resource.
First player write-in gives +3, second +2, all subsequent +1.

Do you think something like this could work?

Waifu Quest, Tax Quest, Last Companion Quest, Handler Quest, etc etc. Lot of things with a lot of potential that crashed and burned. Years and years back and it doesn't help anything but I keep coming back at least once a year to fantasize and get nostalgic.
>>
I see a lot of people making up new systems from scratch and fighting over how complicated it is, so here's my 2 cents, there's always the option of using an existing system like D&D 5e. If the GM is familiar with the system you can keep the interface between player & game very simple, and resolve everything using dice rules that are pre-established and playtested. That's what I'm doing for Barovian Legends (with a couple minimal modifications to rolling and initiative to make it quest-friendly) and it's working great.

This is all because this guy >>5216030 posted the combat rules, not the general rolling rules, despite the question not asking about combat. The general rules are easy and intuitive and I'd recommend them to the original poster, I'm not sure what makes them particularly "arbitrary".

>>5216031
Two degrees of failure leads to a quest where the MC fails quite a bit. This isn't inherently a bad thing, but it's something important to keep in mind, because it's going to determine a lot of your tone. A gentler way to set it up is 1 degree of outright failure and three degrees of success (success-, success, success+), which has been working well for me.

You can just adjust the degrees or the modifiers you throw at the player to make successes and failures less or more frequent as you see fit.
>>
>>5216485
Sure, but if you adjust to compensate for double failure, that's going to limit the band of DCs you can/will offer-- which also limits your options for distributing modifiers and inflicting psychological torment on your players w/ high-but-secretly-still-manageable DCs. It's not a slam dunk.

My source on all of this, btw, is that I've run one quest with 2 degrees of failure and one quest with 1 degree. The 2-degrees-of-failure one's dice were so swingy the MC got permanently characterized as someone who bumbles into trouble at every turn. The 1-degree MC... still does that, but she's a little more purposeful and competent about it, which imo makes her better suited for questing (it's always easier to write successes than failures).

All of that's still subjective, though: if you're running a gritty the-world-is-set-against-you quest, or a comedy quest, or any quest where failure is expected or desired, 2 degrees is gonna be your better option. I just question it being the default.

Strongly think of what the dice represent and if they need to be rolled at all in relation to the story you are telling. This includes combat systems.

Balancing is going to seem strange but everything on /qst/ needs to be quick and powerful or meaningful when it comes to combat. Because in a video game you are used to taking 50 actions in a minute or making a significant decision every few minutes or several times per session, depending on the game. Spending 40+ posts on a single fight consisting of "okay now roll for his Super Fist ability" "okay now roll for the dodge/parry/defend" saps amusement from the players and depth from the story. This is not at all to rob the magic and fun of the dice, on the contrary it's to make the dice more magical and entertaining. But combat should be interesting and variable, more like Chess or Fire Emblem than Tic Tac Toe or tossing a series of coins.

This also leads to why you could do a Mortal Kombat quest but you wouldn't want it to be like a Mortal Kombat video game's combat system, that would take ages and be rather flat and boring to even people that love Mortal Kombat.

Care for your craft. I know a lot of us are autists or drunk or anime weirdos but let's measure twice and cut once. /qst/ is short for /quaslity/
