Here's a bit of general advice that occurred to me recently: if your quest isn't directly about solving a mystery, be a bit careful about how you present mysteries.

Often for the purposes of plot or atmosphere, you might want to put in mystery elements that aren't really meant to be solved. Perhaps the quest is supposed to be more of a character-driven drama or be about solving smaller more immediate challenges, and you might want a larger mystery in the background set it all up. Alternately, you might have smaller mysteries, like how exactly some supernatural element of the story works, or what your antagonist's motivations are, or what happened in a place or person's past.

Usually you'll want your readers to have some interest in things like this, but often you won't want them to be the focus or to interfere with your quest's pacing or slow things down - the "/quest/ spends five updates just asking a character questions" problem. A thing to be aware of is that tgchan, unlike some other interactive adventure sites, is descended from old /tg/ culture and draws a lot of its inspiration heritage from tabletop games (and a certain class of video games), with the basic result being that we tend more towards being a bunch of nerds who like to puzzle things out and assume everything has an answer if you look hard enough. So, if you present unknowns, and it seems even slightly like whatever's unknown could possibly be relevant or interesting, you'll get a bunch of suggesters going oh jinkies gang and jumping into the mystery machine to obsess over it. If you don't intend for a particular mystery to be focused on, you might want to think about how enticing you're making it look, or consider whether someone without your special knowledge of the plot might think that it could be important.

This is partly why quests so often start with the protagonist in a place that�

One easy way to solve it is to have directed questions like in ace attorney or LA noir.
A checklist of clues to ask, and an order to ask to open people up.
Another solution is to have quick updates.
It’s fine to have non image updates, that’s just talky talk.

An excellent question! Humans, dwarves, and elves grew up together on the same planet. Much like us, they became aware of each other through eventual trade routes and exploration. Think of it like if Lord of the Rings progressed into the modern age; there were past conflicts to be sure but with the advancement of technology, the globalization of Terra culturally united the entire world for the first time.

I feel that right in the middle of an update, 400+ updates after beginning the quest, is the most ideal timing for starting a discussion thread.

Seriously though it seems like I've been hemorrhaging readers lately. Which is something I'd really like to stop. I want to continue and eventually finish this quest but at a certain point that becomes impossible if there's nobody to actually read the goddamn thing. So, I really need some feedback. What am I doing right, what am I fucking up, what are things that I can do to not fuck up in the future? I can answer questions too if you have any.

I need to finish building up some assets before I can continue. I should have been doing this in the background while Jack was in trenchtown so that there would be no delay, but I have been waiting until I could get my hands on something that will hopefully help me make my art somewhat less shitty moving forward. I'm also going to use this time to upgrade to blender 2.8 and make some other improvements that should make things a little better.

Anyway, it shouldn't take me too long. Say, 2 to 4 weeks. In the future I will strive to have the next section's assets done before I get to the end of the current section, so that I don't need to have delays like this. I apologize and appreciate all/both of you who are still reading this molasses covered glacier of a quest.

>The quiet way is, you blend in with legitimate traffic, possibly by sneaking aboard a military or diplomatic craft with legitimate credentials - and in addition to obvious sensor scans or whatnot, you'd need to match mass and position of whatever you're adding, right down to the kilogram, with legitimate cargo or passengers being removed, in order to avoid throwing off the ship's balance and other performance characteristics in ways any competent pilot would notice.
>The loud way is to start by subverting or simply wrecking every other missile silo, major radar dish, and airstrip in the hemisphere, saving the one(s) you'll actually be using for last without making it too obvious that's what you're doing.
The Tozol way: subvert at least one surface-to-orbit missile complex, and infiltrate a craft with legitimate credentials. Leave aboard at least one undeniably Tozol artefact (farewell, Wrecking Bar) disguised as well as possible but pre-set to break that disguise once the craft makes orbit.
Wait for the inevitable panicked shoot-first-ask-questions-to-whoever-cleared-the-shuttle S2O missile strike, and hitch a ride to orbit in place of a warhead in one of the missiles from the subverted S2O complex selected for its position along the flightpath of that shuttle.
No. 127307 ID: 2007b6

Couple different problems here. One, anti-satelite missiles don't need nearly as much payload mass or delta-V as actual satelite launchers, because they don't actually need to reach orbit; an intercept at orbital altitude is sufficient, and then five to ten miles per second relative velocity does the rest.

Two, even if you hijacked an ICBM and swapped out a multi-ton warhead for a less-than-one-ton tozol to get it up to orbital velocity, that doesn't make you invisible. Modern radar can track space debris almost down to the size of paint chips; an amazing spacefuture society set on maximum paranoia interdiction presumably wouldn't miss a stray warhead that's more than a meter wide. When the self-destruct fails, they'd go right back to trying to shoot it down.

Three, okay, let's say you work past all that somehow, make it to low orbit. Congratulations, you're halfway to anywhere in the system. How are you planning to cover the second half? How long can a tozol survive in hard vacuum, what sort of ship are you going to try to match speed with and sneak aboard, how are you going to avoid triggering anti-micrometeorite defenses?

I always thought that if there were going to be a Tozol Quest 2, we'd start either with Mitzi trying to get Penji back up on her feet, or immediately after Mitzi does some sneaking around to help Penji recover. In the latter case, Mitzi would serve up some initial exposition on the area and have some contacts so the story could get moving.

In the former case, Mitzi would sneak around the planet, trying to get materials to help a creature she doesn't fully understand recover and get back on her feet. Mitzi would have to learn how to use her spacewhale abilities in sneaky, subversive ways and get what she needs slowly. Penji would need to be hidden while unconscious, and eventually Mitzi/Penji would be found and they'd need to spend most of their time on the run.

Eventually Penji would recover and get back on her feet (or we could get the bad end and have nothing). Or perhaps the Tozols would show up on the planet in greater force. Sooner or later, I imagine (perhaps at the very end as a teaser for future events?) we'd run into a Diplomat.

Getting off the planet would, obviously, be either the end goal or an important part of the journey.
No. 127338 ID: d0b4e7

I would personally prefer the quest start after Mitzi's done the sneaking. It's not that Mitzi isn't cool, it's just that Penji is super cool.

I would also personally prefer part of the quest be spent traveling space. I'm a sucker for grand journeys across uncharted planets. Aliens are cool, man.

Plus, I still want to see these other advanced species cultures. We haven't ever actually seen what Tozol culture looks like, that would be neat.

But these are just my preferences, I understand some people don't like the grand space odyssey type of thing.

Damn, I don't know if test just wanted to spark speculation, or if it was on purpose. But TQ's end was basically the perfect set up for a continuation. You would be guaranteed to hit plot if you were flailing aimlessly. It really doesn't matter how we look at it (not that I'm saying we should cease speculation), you'll always end up with great quest opportunity.

Seriously, it's like the most open ended cliffhanger I've ever seen. I didn't know it was possible to leave so much room for choice, and yet have someone so hooked as I am on finding out what happens.

Test is obviously at least a level 25 quest author. He must have rolled a natural twenty on plot hook.

I underestimated his power level.

Don't worry, I'm still around! So sorry about taking so long both to update the quest and to post in this thread. Holiday stuff ended up taking up much more time than I expected, and aside from that I just kind of let time get away from me -- I don't really have an excuse for it aside from getting lazy due to being on vacation. (I also had a lot of trouble early on with writing the update -- I just couldn't get it to a state I was happy with at first.) In retrospect, I probably should have just given myself a longer break between the first and second threads.

As I write this, I've got two panels out of six finished, while the third is partially colored and the rest are fully sketched, so I don't think it's going to take me too much longer to get it done and posted.

One of my worries with this quest was the possibility of leaning too hard on the amnesia trope, so I'm glad to hear that it doesn't seem too contrived. I don't think it'd be spoiling much to say that Penny's amnesia and the implications surrounding it will be a major theme of the quest, and my hope is that upcoming events will prompt some pretty interesting questions.

Admittedly the color tinting has become a bit of a crutch (color filters are a cheap way of forcing a bunch of colors into a more cohesive palette), but I do intend to use it for thematic purposes as well. I'm glad the attention to detail has paid off, too!

If I'm remembering correctly the magic girl suggestion was made before the rabolds were introduced and you just made it a long term goal.
When I got a look at the Gonzo books it occur to me that maybe you saw that before and made the rabold specie based on the illustrations because of the magic girl suggestion. I was wrong, but it's still a funny coincidence.

Eh, it just annoys me when people say being trans is somehow a good thing. I was close friends with a transgender person and it sure didn't help them in any way.
No. 127302 ID: 58c855

this is the last thing i'll say on whatever nonsense you're trying to convey: the reason being trans has a tendency to be a package deal with depression and other such bullshit isn't because it's inherent to being trans, its because it's inherent to being treated like shit for a long span of time over something you have no control over.

being treated like shit in ways such as: having a core aspect of one's identity being treated as an illness, people acting as though your very existence is disgusting, etc. etc. various other things you were probably aware of peripherally but chose to ignore in favor of being preachy and acting like you know what's best for someone when you evidently cannot even imagine taking a _step_ in their metaphorical shoes.

Experiences are not universal; many of the trans people i know enjoy their lives perfectly well, and i can assure you that its not in spite of being trans. If being trans _was_ suffering, it'd be because of people like you spouting view like yours to trans people who haven't gotten the chance to inoculate themselves against your specific strain of bullshit and them falling into a self hatred spiral because they actually _believe_ that sort of drivel. While I doubt anything I've said here will get you to be any less presumptuous and holier-than-thou, i still hope what I've said gets _someone_ to be less weird about trans people.

Hey this has 600 posts and a lot of stuff that isn't pertinent, and a title that isn't conducive to new readers finding it. I'm gonna make a new one, and pending the JamesLeng stamp of approval I think it'd be best to move our discussions over there.
No. 106443 ID: d41523

I'm probably not permitted to make a new character and join the reboot, but I'm sure it'll still be interesting to watch everyone else's adventure. I updated the wiki page for the reboot.

I'm not the executive speaker, >>106443 but I don't think you're banned, I think JamesLeng was just feeling frustrated with the way you expressed yourself because it felt as though you were constantly unhappy; I'm sure for you it felt as though things were stacked against you and that the GM was out to get you. I think it's just a case of misunderstandings going unaired and being difficult to resolve via text on a screen because of the lack of personal interaction and difficulties conveying emotions.

Again though, outside interpretation of what happened, I can't speak for either of you. Thanks for updating the wiki- I'm gonna find a cover image and make a new discussion thread so after this whole discussion is resolved hopefully we can talk about the quest in a shiny new thread

Well, if it's summer and the city normally has a beach festival, I wouldn't complain. We'd also get a better understanding of local geography then.
I guess someone from the town could conveniently drop by and inform people of the festival?

Speaking of seasons, how much time has passed in-quest so far?

I'm rather curious how an adventurer would react if they met our minions in town after having been blasted back to the fountain by one of them. We have to visit town soon one way or the other so... go for it!

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.

discuss away, and feel free to ask all the weird questions you want. we love this shit.

just a heads up: my hydrocephalus is rearing up Extremely badly and i'll very possibly end up waiting a few months to get my shunt adjusted (which is to say my treatment on track again), so as much as i want to maintain a consistent update/work schedule, i might not be able to.

i have so many stories to tell and so many worlds to show you, and i want to make it all happen as best as i can, but this is kind of the worst it's been in a while and i'm not going to sugarcoat that. i'm going to try and get in with a doctor ASAP, but right now its a wait.

thank you all for sticking with me, and supporting me despite all of the delays and sudden changes.

i'll do my best.

To make relevant subjects easier to find instead of being buried under the minutia of Pdn[T]tO.

https://tgchan.org/wiki/Fluorine_Quest which was actually about playing as a calcified raksha, but dang did I do a bad job making that clear. Not that most people would know what it was even if I did, since it's derived from an obscure section of the errata to what's arguably the whole Ex2e line's most editorially mangled and ungameable volume. The errata which replaced almost entire chapters, and which is so massive I can't even post it all here as a PDF, 'cause it's above the max file size.

Maybe I like this stuff so much because my reach exceeds my grasp so much out of character?

Anyway, the new one, where you can finally play as actual exalts: https://tgchan.org/kusaba/quest/res/865044.html

Palate Without Limit is overpowered. Compared to Hateful Wretched Noise, it provides more of a bonus with no corresponding penalty apart from a 4m commitment. So, I'm adding a downside, in two parts: first, it inflicts a -(Essence) internal penalty on any nonreflexive action to examine details - everything from medical diagnosis to Read Motivation to crime scenes to patting somebody down for concealed weapons - unless you lick the thing being examined, which may involve health risks and/or be considered socially inappropriate. If examination concludes that you could gain any material benefit by ingesting the subject, regardless of other costs or risks, you then have to spend 1 wp to resist a Compulsion to immediately eat at least enough to inflict one level of lethal damage on it. For fragile or small targets, such as an alchemical potion or paper contract, that might be the whole thing.
No. 127160 ID: d9acdc

Not knowing how hard the other penalty hits you, that sounds like a charm that I personally would never really be inclinded to pick up. Seems more like a curse than a boon.
No. 127161 ID: afdebc

With no downside though, you Palate Without Limit gets you the function of Keen Taste Technique, Keen Scent Technique, and Unsurpassed Taste Discipline (three different solar charm purchases!) in a single buy.

As for the curse vs boon, at least you have a choice to turn it on or off, and superpowers with downsides that make you inhuman or alien or weird does seem to fit the yozi aesthetic.
No. 127167 ID: 2007b6

One and a half, actually, Keen Smell & Taste is just one solar charm.

You can avoid the penalty by simply not activating the charm. When it IS active, trading a -2 or -3 internal penalty for two bonus successes and the ability to notice things that wouldn't otherwise be possible still leaves you at a net advantage even when it comes to scent, unless your dice pool was so low you'd have no chance normally. If you use Metagoyin charmtech to be Sherlock Holmes, a certain amount of non-figurative chewing the scenery is almost inevitable, and you probably shouldn't be trusted ID'ing fine wines or found potions.

With Flesh-Weaving Tendrils, major surgery doesn't need to involve any damage at all, so one lethal health level might still leave the patient better off than they would have been going to a mundane doctor - and if they go to get a second opinion anyway, Canker-Concealing Trunk Confusion could be used to make sure the bite marks aren't visible.
No. 127269 ID: 2007b6

Another little houserule, to make some neglected traits more relevant: when you're trying to find an expert for hire, once per month roll your Appearance + Backing (if you're doing so through official channels) or Appearance + Contacts (for personal stuff). Of those who show up, the best among them will have as many dots in relevant skills as the successes from that roll, up to the limit of what's plausibly available in the area where your message has reached and from which replies could have returned.

Attracting the interest of a true necromancer, sorcerer, or outcaste terrestrial exalt always requires at least five or six successes on such a roll. Martial Arts take another success per charm, so an outcaste terrestrial who'd fully mastered a CMA style might take 20+ successes to find - and probably wouldn't work cheap. Hiring a celestial exalt or other unique being usually involves going on a whole adventure just to track them down, not just posting a want-ad.

Figuring out which applicants are actually the most qualified is a task for the Bureaucracy skill, and coming up with a payment plan they'll accept probably requires Resources, though Influence and social skills also tend to help.
