It's me again; I'm having a dilemma in my current quest (Rise of the House of Osé). The suggestions to my latest update aren't really all that helpful, or at least they feel that way; a lot of general advice but not too much in the way of actually picking options. Is it my fault the suggestions don't feel complete, should I have made their segregation as individual works and the time system more clear? I was considering implementing a multiple choice list outright for the house management part of the quest (while keeping day-to-day interaction freestyle as to form a sort of hybrid system), but I've been apprehensive since one of my close friends had a bad experience trying to run a quest with a multiple choice system. (To be clear, I'm really not blaming the suggestors; it really does feel like I missed something and left things too ambiguous because of it.)
No. 128924 ID: f46e5e

highlighting each thing that will take a portion of the day might have helped. I personally am not exactly sure on how these time units work, also we do need to see what is inside.
Chances are we are going to want the most bang for our time, so a better idea of what exactly we can do and how much time each thing will take will probably help prompt lists of actions to take with Ose's time.
Also, I suggested going inside to further survey what we are working with.
I know I assumed each of the things from the prior update were just going to take half a day with possible clever tricks to optimize once we had more detail, not be highly granulated and seem like there is more than half a day's work in just the outside.

From this stated assumption, I can surmise that I haven't been clear enough on presenting the restoration and management of the estate as a... I hesitate to say game mechanic, but a mechanic of sorts. A followup post to clarify and correct definitely seems like the right move, but should I introduce an outright bullet point list of options a la Dragon Romance, etc.? Might be the right move, especially since I have several axes of choices I want people to decide on (read; pick between a vs. b AND x vs. y). Still, what are opinions on that? (Aaaaaaa... This is my first attempt at questing that I don't plan on allowing to go into a coma in the crib, and I'm already running into problems.)

Might be able to get faster back and forth on the IRC, and with more people than just me. this is the link provided to me not long ago so I'll give it to you too: https://kiwiirc.com/client/irc.rizon.net/#tgchan as far as I know any IRC client should work
I think the biggest thing is just to be clear how long Ose expects things to take. since Ose seems to need no sleep just giving a number of hours a task is expected to take (assuming 24hour day-night cycle) and a modifier for how magic use will impact that if applicable, at least as long as we are actively budgeting time.
Most quests seem to follow a 'you have X do thing slots and list Y of things that are options' it seems like that might be what you are going for but i can not really tell, reading the post felt confusing as to what each thing Y is. same with how many 'slots' we have, to a lesser degree.
chances are you are going to want some sort of system for this. What I find I want out of such things is consistency or a reason for inconsistency (be it in-universe or out of universe, be that rules not being as we thought, author error, god changing the universe, or what have you)

I'm reviving my tradition of making polls about hot topics to spark discussion, and this time the topic of choice is which cute furry boy on tgchan is, in fact, the cutest furry boy. The preliminaries are being held at:


Vote for any and all boys on the list who you find cute. I didn't set up any measures to prevent multiple votes because that presents a barrier to entry, but please don't anyway- I can still notice when votes are being sus and the bar to move on to the semifinals aren't high. I realize the list may not be comprehensive but there are over 50 options after asking a whole bunch of people.

To make it clear- vote for any number of boys who you consider cute or want to move on to the semifinals, where you will only be able to vote for one boy to move on to the finals, where again you will only be able to vote for one boy as the cutest.

For transparency's sake, criteria for appearing in this poll are listed-
1) Is a furry.
2) Shows up in a tgchan quest.
3) Was nominated when I went around asking people for cfbs they liked, it's too late now, apologies if one you like isn't on the list but I'm hoping that with 50+ characters from a bunch of quests they'll be well represented.

Also the image is a cute cat because I didn't have a more relevant cute furry image on hand, before anyone asks.

>Can deities and demons be aligned?
The difference between a demon and an evil deity is A) mass worship and B) an avatar in the mundane world. Both demons and deities are mortal concepts given life through belief.

>Like, if you had a soldier demon based upon "there could be something inhuman under heavy armour and we couldn't see it" and a deity of battlefields, would focusing faith in the deity at the demon actually strengthen the demon or something?
No. Worship is also very different from superstition. Worship feeds a magical being's power. Superstition can build up until it gives life to a new being. A place in a pantheon (or monotheistic religion) gives a deity a very defined structure; a name, an appearance, spheres, powers, etc.

Think of it like mailing a letter. Worship is addressed to someone specific, and that mail will only reach that person. Superstition is vaguely addressed, and can't be delivered, and those letters pile up until someone that fits the description is created to receive them.

There are more specificities but I'll reserve them for when Dionaea meets someone learned in such matters. I think it's more fun to find out about a setting through "living" in it, from its inhabitants, rather than Word of God. That said, I'll gladly answer questions that Dionaea would know so as not to pad out the updates with asking her yourself (the above being something she would know). She's a more trustworthy source than most on such topics, since she has been around for so long.
No. 129229 ID: 977456

>Worship feeds a magical being's power. Superstition can build up until it gives life to a new being.
Ah. I was under the impression that holy-symbols could be an issue, but now can't find a reference. Is that a thing? If so, what is the mechanism for that?

>cold iron (different from regular iron; it's holy)
Is that an abstraction or is holiness a practical thing?
No. 129231 ID: 688dd6

Since deities are magic, holiness is also magic. Cold iron is, as mentioned in the first thread, just regular iron that's been quenched in holy water. Holy symbols have power because the god behind them disapproves of the existence of the demon. In the parlance of Dionaea's time, a "demon" is just a wholly or partially magical creature that is antagonistic towards established "good" religions. She wasn't born a "demon" but that's what she is classified as now.

Clerics and paladins and such get their power through their deity. Holy symbols and blessings are no different. They channel a tiny portion of a deity's power and influence through them. The effects depend on the deity.
No. 129236 ID: 977456

So what happens if the "god" likes the demon? Or whatever "good" demons are named. How does Dionaea feel about collaborating with a less physically-inclined and more worship-based magical being. Does she know of any that might be collaboratively inclined towards her? Did we ever find out what Dionaeais made from? What her "cause" is?
No. 129237 ID: 688dd6

>So what happens if the "god" likes the demon?
Followers of the god won't be alerted to the demon's presence, and their power won't target the demon unless specifically diverted to that purpose.

>Or whatever "good" demons are named.
Probably angels?

>How does Dionaea feel about collaborating with a less physically-inclined and more worship-based magical being.
Depends on the collaboration, I guess? Dionaea wants to lead more than follow, though.

big fancy disthread because we've hit the point where we have multiple morbit quests both here AND on other sites, such as eagletime and omegaupdate.

what started as a passion project between myself and my friend como to create a universe snowballed into a huge deal with multiple projects and a proper team behind it. this thread is for talking about both the universe as a whole, and our current running quests- here, that'd be Maybequest and Tiny Cat People.

I'm going to go ahead and say that only the player's dice can explode, so there won't be any giant rats critting for 17 damage and one shotting the player.

Though that would be very much in roguelike aesthetic.

I'd like to congratulate Emils for learning how to correctly boop a snoot.
No. 129206 ID: 5ba090

Hey, I just read this whole thing. Its rather good.
The setting reminds me of this short story a bit https://www.toothycat.net/%7Esham/Access_History.html, which is about a fantasy world that is actually a simulation.
I Am probably doesn't take place in a simulation though. But there are lots of little things that make me think there's something similar going on. The magic system for one, seems very technical and is reminiscent of coding. Jogert also just casually says magic doesn't exist when Emils brought it up, and the way the mana beasts talk about magic also seems very technical, with the natives learning to "interface" with it. The way certain words always appear in brackets, like they're referring to a specific technical meaning and not just the casual everyday one.
Oh, and also a big bar that seemed to indicate health appeared in Emils' vision when she talked to the giant Lust slime. That was a thing.
What this means, I have no idea. My guess would be that the world isn't a simulation, but "magic" is somehow technological in origin. Maybe the world is covered in nanomachines that respond to certain commands.
No. 129210 ID: e20bdf

What we got from the backstory is incomplete and a bit convoluted, but basic the universe is a futuristic version of a more normal fantasy setting.
There were dragons, and presumable other common fantasy races, in another planet, capable of producing mana and cast magic. The mana they produced fed dungeons cores kind of like in Dungeoneer.
At some point the dragons used dungeons cores to produce artificial cored (more machine like) for their terraforming project. So space ships would bring the artificial cores (the mana beasts) to barren planets, those would transform the environment so it could sustain life, and latter the dragons would come in their space ships to colonize.
During the terraforming of the planet the story take place life developed spontaneously, and adapted to the artificial mana the cores were pulping into the environment. That is why the magic system have a program style, the living creatures have the equivalent of dungeons cores and basic hack into the machine like magic of constructions to cast spells.

The mana beasts denying the existence of magic confuse me. I get the idea of magic being whatever science can't explain, but I can't imagine the dragons would stop calling the ability of make fire (or whatever) appear in the palm of their hands "magic" even after they learn how it works.
No. 129216 ID: 8eaf98

I feel this could best be explained by linguistic differences. this ability would have been very pervasive in their lives (if the civ grew up with it) and thus would likely not all be covered by one blanket word of 'magic' and would be treated as a normal thing like say: smell or taste to us. If we were asked is smell magic we would be like obviously not.
Alternatively, it was something they actively developed and then why on earth would they call it magic, they engineered it.
TL;DR: The languages being spoken are not English and translation happens.

Your temperament dictates what areas your aura works best, not the only places it can work. Channeling energy to the eye to sense things is still possible but with the Blue temperament it's easier, and other applications of it are possible in conjunction with the rest of your aura colors. Each color of aura has a much more minor application to it, with Green for example it's possible to relieve minor fatigue or aches with the proper techniques, and with Red it helps with the building of muscle and physical toughness in small increments. Of course these are harder to do and take extra time to practice and some people tend to be weak in certain areas.

I'm really sorry it died, but it lost so much direction and I couldn't get it back. I tried again on anonkun but I lost internet for one session and then everyone stopped reading. It is not meant to be, one of those cursed concepts, sort of things.
Also I'm a terrible attention whore and I just get bored if I don't get enough feedback (for one) and there's so much good art questing these days I feel bad not having art myself. And I really don't have the time, either. Just too many factors.

I guess thanks for the mention and the feels.

Quest: https://tgchan.org/kusaba/quest/res/915048.html

Disthread for my first ever Quest! I'm very new to this and probably really awful, so I'd love feedback and suggestions. Actually, the quest will probably die without them. Especially if I keep railroading this badly. Haha.

The art style of this quest is quite abstract and much different from Eth. Not that I mind, I find it quite interesting. As long as it's not used to censor certain things too much heh. What I'd like to ask is, what made you decide on this art style and will it remain the same through the whole quest?
No. 129199 ID: 4bfa7c

Gotta see how well it works, it'll probably develop quite a bit.

It was inspired partly by middle american art- mayan and aztec especially- and modern day pop art, with some dunmer thrown in.

For the general discussion of quests and related topics.

Saliently for my own quests, of course. But discussion about other quests is not discouraged.

Not trying to be a downer but the way your quests are (you know, all long and heavily worded) I doubt making a new one (as in a new story) would be quite taxing for anyone. Many authors here have a hard enough time running one, so I'd suggest you bide your time for now.

If that's going to be a reoccurring problem then there's no harm to your pride in saying that you need more time or can't finish a quest because of real life issues. Many authors face that and this community (while still capable of immense stupidity like any other) understands that real life needs come first.

our friends at the firm and I have rewritten and redrawn one of SportsDrink's old works dutifully for you, the quest reading masses! don't worry about it being written and drawn in advance, your free will was never an issue.

here we will be answering any questions about the setting and story as best we can, given the incomplete notes SD left. feel free to argue amongst yourselves about which of these nonexistent women would make the best live in maids!

here are two characters he seemed to be fond of from the first run! Sakura Kusinagi and Ysmir Redlude. unfortunately they won't be appearing in the current project, according to his notes, Sakura would be a teenager at this time, and Ysmir won't be born for an other 5 years. what a shame! let's not let that stop us from depicting them as willing adults, hmm? have fun, friends.

In case anyone was unaware (I certainly was!), this quest is actually technically completed. Here's the ending, from the author's page:


Sabby helped Lairehfsis get her body corpsebound by her family. Helped patch up things between their Romeo and Juliet-butt families mostly by accident and got on both their good sides. Carried on a bit further down south. Helped Doctor Mantis become accepted for the medical GENIUS he clearly was. Finally convinced the Geofahn bug to get off her butt through speechifying and appealing to his own insecurities.

Eventually arranged for a dream conversation with Tabaxian. Sabby was always being pushed by suggestions towards seizing control of her own life and living on her own terms and answering to no one. Being her own dog. She was done running.

Explained she was taking her own route in life. He accused her of being selfish. She said having to give up her life for everyone else was basically the same. They argued. They finally stopped arguing. And he let her go. House Geofahn backed off. House Geofahn absorbed House Tashikoxix by artifact of their expansion anyway, so most of the ghosts were saved, although Sabby's mother didn't end up with any kind of real political clout and is still pretty miserable.

And with that sorted out, she and Maexiks sorted out their own problems. Most of Sabby's suggestions were understanding if a little creeped out. She eventually forgave Maexiks and encouraged her to ditch that fart-butt town if she hated it so much and stop being a depresso and come hang out.

She did.

I think if you made the mouth a tad longer and made the eyes less detailed and more 'gash'-looking, you would probably nail a pretty surreal look not dissimilar to the original look.

Imo, the thing that seems to make them surreal is the slightly-off proportions that trigger the uncanny valley. The new pic is very menacing, but the proportions are too accurate to really give the viewer the feeling that something is wrong.

Idk, this is just my two-cents.


Soo, you seem to have backed yourself into yet another corner, and this one is even closer. Soo, how do you plan on handling this one, champ? :3

It's a little funny how I was expecting the picnic to be about keeping our friends from being too lewd but instead we're trying to keep mom from being too lewd.

DR8 was a little shorter than usual, partly because I really wore myself out doing the Picnic Of Doom minigame and partly because it felt like a really good thread-ending moment to go for!

I'll be taking a break from questing for a few weeks due to fatigue. And because my DR fatigue is especially high, I'll be coming back with finishing SQ1 rather than jumping into DR9 right away.

I'll keep you posted as things happen.

Koror might continue at a slow but steady pace... but I'd like to not think about it for a week, at least.

Eh, I didn't really get that impression from the thread, that those were mysteries that were optional for the readers to solve. Like, quests vary between being more gamelike and being more storylike, or being both, and thread 17 at least seemed much more storylike. But it feels like it missed a scene to me. It doesn't really bother me though, I know that keeping track of numerous story details while writing serial fiction can be hard, and Asteroid Quest has a lot of plot-important details. This was meant to be the kind of criticism that is hopefully helpful to Lagotrope, just a description of something that didn't seem to work as well and why.

That makes more sense, I would like to read whatever you got that from is though.

A more general question, have we learned anything about the other neumono who went through Polo's training and developed the ability to go silent? In ITQ or elsewhere?

Well, I don't agree. Yes, the information is missing, but I don't think the story suffers for it, and I even think it's been enhanced for Polo and Penn's quests, later. I'm sure we could have searched out those mysteries, if we wanted to and were smart enough, but if they were optional then we chose not to (which might have been wise, as they could have a price) and if they were essential then we simply failed. We can do that. Even "storylike" quests, as you call them, can have details missed or tasks failed. The suggesters have some responsibility for how a stories goes as well as the author.

Even just in and of itself, though, the feeling of questions unanswered suits the atmosphere of the quest itself. Likol is a scientist - having questions to answer, being surrounded by mysteries, is appropriate to him. Having those questions be hard to solve, with an air of dread around them, reinforces the frustration and fear he's feeling, and the sense that something that he values (the search for knowledge) has been tainted and become bitter for him. And when the quest ends, and he's taken away with those questions unanswered, yeah it's unsatisfying - it is for him, too! He doesn't want to go. He's not at peace. His future is uncertain but almost certainly horrible, and he's had to resign himself to never getting what he'd really want. Because we haven't gotten an answer to our

Basically only ITQ. Polo is the only complete success. The others are all from her hive and can't maintain it to the same degree she can, iirc if they had any others who could go silent at all it was only for short periods of time and it was painful/harmful to do.
