I'm planning to start my first quest fairly soon and I was hoping to get some advice on how to navigate something I want to do. What I want to happen is that the main/player character outright lies about something, it will become pretty obvious fairly quickly that at the very least what the character tells the reader isn't the whole truth, but I'm a bit concerned I'll drop the ball writing it in some way so tips dealing with this would be very appreciated
No. 125012 ID: e2ea73

The trick I feel is establishing that there can be a disconnection between what the character's saying and what's actually going on. For example if it contradicts something they'd previously said. Also if it's a lie their telling to someone else, you have the option of showing their internal state to the suggesters, which can suggest something's off.
No. 125364 ID: 7969eb

Hey dudes, if I was thinking of doing a quest by having several smaller updates carried out on Saturday/Friday nights, college and work permitting, would this be feasible on tgchan? I'd be keeping the sessions to the same nights at roughly the same time with a twitter to announce it all.
No. 125366 ID: ceb185

It could work. Tgchan's usually a little slow paced so you might get less suggestions per update, but generally when people see a quest is updating frequently, they'll check it more often.
No. 125369 ID: 4f1cbc

Updating in sessions once or twice a week? Yeah, that's fine, there are plenty of quests that update slower than that.

Why not pick a longer "message" if we're worried about that kind of thing? Tell Deem it says
"If you can read this, I've found a way to circumvent the limitations of my own knowledge. I won't need to be taught to read and write after all."
"This is a test of my literacy circumvention magic, hopefully it worked and you can read this. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog."

We can easily fit a cry for help inside either of those. Something like
"Stay calm just say it worked. Deem was damaged imprisoned cursed by sky magic which blocks her perception of it We are advisors inside her mind, unaffected by curse."

>was there like, a better end for katherine quest that tg couldve unlocked? would it happen if she didnt eat loretta?
not really. there were worse ends, like ulric killing her (and thus breaking the illusion early) if she upset him, but in the end i was always gonna make a piece where in the end it had all been a futile struggle. i’m happy that i’m now at a spot where i’m not interested in making stories like that anymore

>how/when did you come up with the title for acid soup + the penname fractal? :O
acid soup’s title significance is a secret and the penname fractal is just bc i was really interested in fractals/recursion in nature when i was younger

>ive been thinking about the “vampires sink large bodies of water are a weakness” thing for WEEKS bc it’s such a cool concept & sth about it was like. not leaving my head like i didnt know why it felt familiar? it’s so good i love it so much but i couldnt think of why it was sticking with me the way it was. anyways i was watching lilo and stitch with my cousin and realized that’s also the canon reason stitch cant leave the island. im cursed w/ this info and now so are you. also im Bhïg Gay and kel’s fantastic thank you
HHFDGSHHHG COVEN MEANS FAMILY AND FAMILY MEANS NOBODY GETS OUT ALIVE.... actually what was probably familiar abt it is it’s based on the traditional folklore stating that vampires can’t cross streams/rivers/running water!! also you’re welcome.

now that you guys have solved my murder puzzle i thought it might be fun to go over all the different murder experiences you could've had

A - asshole guy, too small for his clothes to be useful, and difficult to get alone. this encounter would have been really annoying and mostly would've been me baiting ricardo into getting mad enough to just pulverize the guy.

B - this guy and this couple were too close together - you wouldn't have been able to get the guy alone without the couple noticing you were there. balcony overall was just a bad hunting spot.

C - a guy ricardo's size who would have been the simplest and fastest mark - no talking, just yanking him into an alley. murder puzzle on easy mode.

D - this is the guy pascal danced with - the "puzzle" in this one would have been to guess that from him being extremely visibly fucked up that it would be better not to feed on him, and to move onto a different target. now that i think about it, you guys picking him and failing could have fucked a lot of the rest of the evening up really hard

E - murder puzzle hard mode - ricardo's size, and seemingly perfect bc he was walking somewhere alone, but you would have followed him into an alley only to find that he was trying to mug a pair of barhoppers, and then had to navigate that scenario. pascal would've praised you for getting three wallets instead of just one

F - jacket guy! murder puzzle medium mode. ricardo's size, personable and open to interaction, but with the added challenge of the fact that he was heading into a crowded building and you'd still have to find a way to get him alone. i was actually really happy that you guys picked him bc i thought besides wasted guy he was the most interesting/enjoyable scenario.

G - extremely obviously people hanging out in a group - bad

Dr. Renson, or anyone who’d know: how common/rare is it for people to practice medicine on other species? In the event of someone having a medical emergency in an area that’s predominantly some other species, would there be any effort to try and find a doctor of that person’s species to treat them, or would that not be a factor? Do other, similar professions (therapists for example) ever cross species barriers?

I'm pretty sure SS could provide a funny in-universe update on his stuff in here, but if you want a more unambiguous OOC answer the Story Seeker disthread is probably a good place to try if you can hunt down which page it's fallen downwards to. For what it's worth I'm reasonably sure it's still on the list of quests to do, just lower-priority than the more recent/bigger projects.

Protip: you can look up quests on the wiki (which has an actual search function) and follow the link to the dis thread of your choice much faster than manually hunting through pages or the catalog.

Normally what the couple of above posts say is true, and the wiki pages, in this case https://tgchan.org/wiki/Story_Seeker , are good for just keeping track of threads, but in this case there isn't actually a Story Seeker dis thread.

So for the meta answer, SS isn't over, it'll have more stuff at an undetermined date. Also I'll probably make a disthread around then just so it has one, no matter how belated.

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.

No. 125482 ID: 453334

So, I figured we might need a “nuclear option”, in case things start going horribly and we can’t turn any of Spit or Wax’s TCP’s.
Basically the kind of thing where we convert a TCP into an especially destructive type, put a kill order on all enemy TCPs at once, and blow up the entire board. I went through a few ideas to find one that would fit.
Typhon would probably be incapable of turning off the lava and poison spewing, and Fenrir would always be ravenously hungry which would both be bad after the game was over.
A vacuum collapse event would be ideal due to it’s speed and instant cause of death, but I can’t think of a way to get that down into one word.

The best option is probably Singularity, especially since it will probably include the technological one, meaning the definition the TCP will run off of will be “a point where a measured variable reaches unmeasurable or infinite value, thus causing existing models and established laws to break down.” Which will cause synergy with Discord.
For black holes, this is infinity mass breaking the laws of physics, for the AI singularity this is immeasurable processing and production power preventing any form of prediction, and there were ones like the Digital Revolution that brought about previously unimaginable communication and processing ability.
So it’d probably be an Abstract TCP with the ability to crank something’s properties up to infinite or near-infinite.
And if everything goes terrible, we turn one of our TCP into that, give him a kill order for every enemy, and then have him crank up something’s mass to infinity to make a black hole.

There are others like hypernova and antimatter that would work, but those wouldn’t be able to use their ability outside the game.

BADBOY HARDCORE EXTREME is lover's first playlist! it's a goddamn mess!

KITTY FACE MOTHERFUCKER is, as you'd guess, the first voidsy playlist. it's also a mess.

GLACIAL COSMONAUT is the first playlist for Chella, a character from Incoming Transmission-new project in the works that, while not a quest, will be set in morbit + is one big experiment for me!

STEADFAST SOLDIER is also an IT playlist, this one focusing on the character Elixir. neither elixir or chella have been released to the public yet, so you can take these as a sort of preview + look into their characters!

more to come, i'm sitting on so many of these

Given the length and general chaos of the previous thread, I want to start fresh with a place where people can voice their concerns directly to me. A lot of readers have been unhappy with the quest as of late, and I feel the need to address these in order to make it more enjoyable. I do this entirely for fun, so I want people to have fun participating in it.

I accept responsibility for the current problems in the storytelling, and want to hear from the readers so that I can at least try to put out the fires before the quest is over. Being the author of it, I feel I have the most power to affect the direction of the quest in a positive way!

Memes and porn are still welcome, obviously.

On the contrary, I have wanted to resume Coxwette for a long time!

This is pretty much right. I have been busy with other things that have made it difficult to keep the update schedule I had before.

Another more minor reason was that I was becoming stressed out with the increasing pressure and controversy surrounding Coxwette updates. This time around, I might be less strictly democratic about how I pick suggestions because I really want to conclude the quest. I hope this is not too frustrating, but the volume of votes and the degree of disagreement with each major update was becoming a serious burden.

I do not want to give the impression that I hate the quest or am tired of it. Quite the opposite! Running this has been one of the highlights of my life and I am excited to give it an end.

Discussion Thread for my first quest, Team Port Echo! I hope to really expand this universe with many adventures for our heroes.

Here I hope to show around some art, answer any questions you may have about these characters without spoiling anything, and figure out ways to improve the dice-roll system.

So bad news first, I don't think I'll work on Team Port Echo's current quest for a while (or again). With suggestions appearing less and less I feel I put too much work in it with stats, upgrades, maps, puzzles, and the like. I felt ambitious, yet it does wear me down. It doesn't seem many are interested right now. But not all quests last long here, as expected. I ought to reboot it in the future—but for now I'll just keep to holiday threads. I'll make some quests based in the TPE universe, borrowing the same species and the like.

Good news is I've decided to make TPE a full graphic novel instead. Who knows, maybe someday you could find it in a bookstore. I managed to make myself some free time to write and draw more and I feel TPE has some potential.

In other news I made a new quest: https://tgchan.org/kusaba/quest/res/902109.html

You may recognize him from the holiday/Secret Santa posts. But I thought a simple dating sim would be nice, simple innocent fun with Ganymede trying to share his feelings for Eudora.
No. 125494 ID: deec6e


I'm actually sorry to hear that! I liked Port Echo, I liked the art, the story seemed like it was going places. For some reason I just couldn't keep up with it properly. I only read through and posted very occasionally - and eventually I lost the thread on the plot and didn't really feel like making a post without, y'know, knowing what's going on and since the thread itself so seldom surfaced when I had free time and was skimming Quest... hrm. Bit of a self-fulfilling prophecy there, really. I couldn't pay attention, because I didn't see it when I could pay attention.

I do feel as if you perhaps just never got that critical mass of active posters needed to keep the thread running - or that you lost them somewhere along the way - which is a sometimes problem even for the more popular threads and why some good threads die of neglect. It may have been at least somewhat down to bad luck on your end. I certainly don't feel as if you did badly, other than perhaps in having a relatively complex set of mechanics for players to keep in mind.

Perhaps things would've worked better if you'd only had one main character (or introduced the others way later), or if choices required less mental effort to understand and respond to or if the mechanics had been simply simpler and looser. Perhaps the quality, if anything, ended up being a little intimidating and subconsciously constrained the posters' 'do X funny thing' proposals that you always see, making the post and bump count fall by the wayside. Perhaps by designing and 'prefabbing' the world and abilities you took away a creative fun factor you could've exploited to gain more player engagement. Or perhaps not! It's hard for me to say what caused the lack

Sad to hear about the TPE Quest, i like it a lot, even tho i have a hard time reading so much text (but that is just me having a hard time reading english). I hope to see you light novel tho! The pices were all there, it had great potential! Maybe it will be more beneficial for TPE if made in other format. Looking foward for that Novel.

Sorry to hear it. I've always liked seeing TPE pop up in the catalog but had trouble coming up with suggestions (it doesn't help I'm constantly far behind on all the quests I like). Wish I could offer a more helpful critique.

The date's cute already!

And the underground stuff, too. Drawing laughably inaccurate yet strategically indispensable maps is a big part of the old-school dungeon-crawling experience.

Problem I just thought of for 3oS - how exactly do you go about setting a card as normal/inverted when you're *throwing* it at somebody?
No. 125153 ID: 6e171f

Same way a skilled knife thrower hits with the pointy side instead of the blunt one, only it’s probably more of a metaphysical distinction than an actual physical orientation. Perhaps a little of both? Big thing though is that I think there both intention and mundane skill involved, and that fouling either would probably result in unintended consequences

Alright, Orange, since Green Redford was (at least temporarily) incapacitated, if you'd like you can generate a new character to start off back in the throne room, and play both of them at once.
No. 125493 ID: ee5804

Here's my new char.

Name: Gale Fuentes
Class: Hedge Witch
Higher Ambition: Knowing his past, purpose, and place in the universe
Lower Ambition: Fashion.
Specialization: Botanomancy, magicks related to plants.
Mutation: Gale stands at a few inches less than the average man. He has a pelt of short fine bluish grey fur. He has a head in the shape of a dragon's but much rounder, friendlier-looking, and furrier. He has some white teeth and claws of steel. His eyes are pretty much circular holes on his head covered by thick black glass. He has no ability to close them, but he can cover them.
Gale is yet to realize, but under his hide of skin and fur, he's mostly mechanical. His skeleton is made of rods of bronze, and his innards are of brass gears constantly spin to keep him moving. He still has to breathe in oxygen and eat food to keep his gears a-turning, his greasy blood flowing, and his lubricating fluids fluid. His black blood circulates through his body to distribute heat.
Phobia: Theophobia - Deathly afraid of gods
Vulnerability: High voltage electricity can literally shut him down.
Innate Power: Metalloception - Gale is perceptive to any metal in his surroundings.

Left Hip: Dried bread
Right Hip: Throw-and-Grow Beans
Left Shoulder: Spear
Right Shoulder: Kindling
Neck: Clean cloth, hooked needles, & thread
Head: Iron Spikes
Somewhere uncomfortable: Bronze Statuette of a lizard holding a pole with a lantern.

>You think you can afford to lose any of your other items
Yeah, I think that, strictly speaking, none of the items are so important that we couldn't just toss them away. After all, we did start out without any of them so the chances that any of them would be a major plot element is pretty low. I'd guess that at best they might lead to side plots, but even then there's no saying we wouldn't get access to those plots anyway.

>you should hold on to [the vial with the faded label] no matter what
There's one thing that I intentionally chose not to suggest in the last update. That is, to detach the label from the bottle. In which case the bottle could be discarded and there would be no need for any hiding hehe. But that wouldn't be very fun now, would it?

This panel cracks me up so much. And she looks so cute!

This room looks like it's seen better times heh. And hey, there's a WC. A place where stuff might be disposed.

>Window licker
Actually, out of all the people in the room, this guy seems like the biggest mystery. Why is he licking the glass? Did he take a bit too much taffa and now believes he's some sort of a washing machine? What could've caused him to act the way he does? And would he notice if we stole his boots? We may never find out.

Oh crud, I just realized, what if the reason this place is clean despite it being in disrepair is because that window licker didn't just lick the window, but licked this entire room clean. Gross.
No. 125487 ID: 93f082

Umm, I'm not sure how you came to the conclusion that he's getting paid to lick the glass. Can you elaborate?

Also, I don't understand why you (and others) are so obsessed with "Spade". There's absolutely no precedent that would link that word to the MC.

The MC's original name (as appears here >>/quest/887022) was not only jumbled but specifically written that it was wrong. What appeared to us was 14 jumbled characters. It could've been any characters, but it just so happens that we ended up with these ones.

Of those 14 characters, the first one looks like a spades icon. But there's also a sun, a smiley, a note, etc which are ignored. Why would you choose the first character and discard the other 13? Isn't that mean to the other 13 characters?
Again, those characters have absolutely no meaning as they were supposed to be jumbled. So drawing any sort of conclusions from them makes no sense.
No. 125490 ID: b1b4f3

I think the window licker is being paid to collect tastes. I suspect this society can outright manufacture memories/experiences, not just forget them via Taffa.

>"Cowwectin' paysps. Good mummy."
Would probably translate to
"Collecting payslips. Good money."
Of course, that doesn't tell us much. Only that he believes that he's earning money with whatever it is that he's doing. Whether he's actually getting paid, or is simply crazy, I still can't tell. As for what he's doing, it could be cleaning, applying a glossy substance, or collecting something unseen. In any case, there doesn't seem to be much purpose in coming up with theories about him right now as it would be inconsequential.

Heh, it's definitely amusing that she called us that way. Would it be because of our chest or because of the floppy ears? Or is it some sort of a nickname attached to the suit we're wearing? Pancake baker suit!

Aaaand here's an official discussion thread at last. Here's where you can ask non plot-relevant worldbuilding questions, do extra strategizing, and I'll make inevitable excuses for why I haven't updated.

This time around, my update is late because I injured my back and my usual drawing posture is making it worse. Update will be up for real soon!

"Well, part of my undercover training involved me dressing up in the opposite gender. While trying to blend in, I found a certain girl, sneaking out of her Palace.
Since I was in training for being her guard, I couldn't very well leave her be, so I tried following her, but she caught me.
I tried to persuade her to return, but she just dragged me around. We spent a few days outside the palace, enjoying the capitol before we were eventually caught.
We became friends together, but I didn't have the heart to confess about my identity. Even after, I had to escort her as 'Lady Chris', but eventually my position as her Fiance was confirmed.
The dresses just reminds me of the fun we had together. No plots hanging over our heads, no pressure between our families to get along, just as friends."

Alternate title: Spambot is trying to spur some productivity in himself so he's poking tgchan again.
This'll have a lot of NSFW in it, depending on player choices.

Third time's a charm. For this quest I'm trying to add more overt game mechanics to work with and dumping the more melodramatic writing tone, or at least what I felt was a too melodramatic tone. Hopefully this'll make the world a bit clearer and the tone wont have people taking things too seriously and complaining about other posters in the dis thread. Please don't do that.

Hopefully the super RNG heavy play wont be a put-off, I dusted off an old dice RPG system I never finished to make the 'logic' behind the game. Just kinda the first thing I have at hand. I'm still keeping details obscured so there's some exploration and discovery to be had.

I haven't worked up any kind of concrete plot to things, the rough idea I'm messing with is a kind of endless survival rpg. So the intent is to have mostly dice-rpg style character building and constant world building stuff being generated based on player character actions, and I'm largely just playing dungeonmaster while suggesters get total control over the players' character. No great plots or specific story though, well nothing super rigid anyway. Also shitloads of porn because I need the practice. 8D

I haven't been paying lots of attention to tgchan for a while but people keep bringing it up in conversation now and then so I got tempted. Hopefully I haven't forgotten anything important by just diving in this time. Posting the discussion thread first here so I can link it in the first post in /quest/ itself.
Hopefully all things will go smoothly enough this time and I'll be able to run a long and entertaining thread or two. Also draw lots of porns.

Aiming for an update every day or so. I'm only doodling them out on little squares ruled onto A4 bleedproof pad paper while I warm up in the morning. Not being terribly fastidious about getting it perfect, plus I've been getting faster at scribbling things out. These little panels are probably the easiest thing I do.
These early few posts have extra panels because there's just that extra stuff to cover, later on I'm sure it'll streamline out a bit, maybe even multiple posts a day, morning and afternoon for me if it's down to single panels. Though I want to give time for a few suggestions to come in.

No. 125467 ID: 93f082

Oh, it wasn't that bad. It's just that size of the post made it look that way. I'd say that, when there's multiple panels and a lot of text, perhaps it would be better to make multiple posts with 1 panel per post. That way it's a bit easier to read because it's easier to see which panel the text paragraph refers to. And it also works against spoilers, that is, I won't look at the next panel before I'm done reading the text of the previous one.

Also, I gotta say for the last update. Dat ass...

No. 125478 ID: 93f082

Editing involves contacting the mods so, I suppose reporting the post would do the trick. However, I think it's a bit late to be editing, now that most people already read the update. I think it would be better to just add the correction as spoilered text at the beginning of the next update and it should be fine.

A Unique Set of Circumstances

That Forgotten Road
I don't think I am cool enough to warrant two different threads for my quests, but we can combine them here for people to speak about decisions they might want to take.

My quests are very reader driven, so whatever you guys pick is usually what I go with.

If you have questions about things we have in our inventories, or systems we use, Ill try to visit this place to answer them often enough.

>choices now will have serious effects for the upcoming threads
I know you're trying to increase your readership but, I don't think that putting pressure on suggesters is going to have the desired effect here. The way I see it, the harder the choices are, the fewer suggestions you're going to get because a lot of suggesters would rather not suggest anything than suggesting something that might be wrong or bad.
Also, don't choices already have serious effects on the quest all the time anyway?

Anyway, I can also see a problem with having abilities like the Prayers that can be activated at any time, since the way suggestions work, it would be very difficult to get a consensus on using one. This is simply how /quest/ usually is. They won't use up something that might be a rare resource unless they feel it's absolutely necessary. In this case, perhaps you should simply force it out, I dunno, say that MC thinks this is a good time to use a prayer, or perhaps, as long as a single suggester says to use a prayer, the voting on which one to use would start.

Nice work on Amelia hehe. If I may ask, what do you use to draw?
