>"A few questions for Mother Sabria on the undead. Were the undead always here existing in the world and only now gathered in large numbers to become noticeable or did they just show up out of no where. It's also said that anyone who dies usually comes back as one of the undead, is there some special ritual or crude method to ensure the body doesn't become an undead? Lastly, are the bodies becoming undead on their own or is someone bringing them back?"

Mother Sabria: 'Thank you for inquiring, I will assume you are a young sheltered child as this is crucial information you should already know.
but the truth can never be heard often enough.

It is with endless regret that I admit that these abominable creation have plagued this world for an eternity.
it was Absolon; Demon lord of Despair who brought death to our world,
not a day had passed before his brother Churzegar; Demon Lord of hungers exploited this curse.
The fiend offered mortals freedom from death and freedom from the judgement of the gods that it brought.
cowards, traitors and every sinner imaginable flocked to this promise and damned themselves everyone.
every demons deal has an unthinkable price, one inflicted upon the innocent and guilty alike.
the guilty suffer as slaves to the demon's hunger, the innocents murdered so that ever more can be offered this curse.

however, all is not lost. The depraved servants of Churzegar would have you believe every corpse will serve him.
This is a lie.
There are four methods to assure the dead will not rise.

the first and most important is that the demon lords are bound to the hellish realms, they have no power but what mortals give them.
mortal souls can only hear the demon lord's offer if a particularly corrupt servant offers a connection through fell magic

the the second, only those who fear death, only those who fear judgement will accept his vile offer.
a pure soul, who knows the gods will accept them will never become such a monster.

the third is through divine power of the gods, which only the most devote servants can wield. such power can bring judgement to a soul even in the mortal realm.

the forth is more complicated, but I recommend it for those you doubt the innocence of, which honestly should be everyone.
and more importantly the already risen.
it is a complicated method, which I will only cover the basic concepts of here.
we strip the bones of weak flesh with holy acids, and bleach the bones with the purifying rays of the sun
then entomb the bones in a vessel that cannot rot, stone will suffice if you can do no better.
you're local church will be able to provide you with further details, and texts on the topic.

Stay loyal to the true gods, and always strive for virtue.'

>"Sir Garcio, how long have you served in the king's army? What was your first meeting with Sir Garrin like? Any strange or funny stories you two were involved in?"

Garcio: 'Oh it's gotta be twenty years since I got taken in as Garrin's squire, and we've been inseparable ever since.
his first day of training started with a lecture that changed my life, taught all about how much you can get away with if just do a good job with the important stuff.
this idea has probably given us a thousand glorious adventures! like the time we to strip those Binder nuns in the public square just to get the keys to the chapel,
or when we had to pretend to be foreign princes and the local farm girls showered us with affection, LOTS of affection if you know what I mean.
And then there was that strange event where goblins were smuggling stolen wine into the kingdom, which we had to confiscate of course.
All in the name of the crown!

Firstly I'd like to thank all my extraordinary and generous Patrons for everything they've done for me.
in addition to all my public readers who enjoy my quests.

My patreon sadly is in decline. I have to wonder if this quest has over stayed it's welcome or whether interest is simply waning.

I've made no decisions thus far, but if thing continue to decline I may have to make changes.
these changes could range anywhere from adjusting my patreon to working the quest to a satisfactory ending this year.

again I have made no decisions and would greatly appreciate and feedback on this situation

Maybe adding more nsfw scenes would attract more people there was a heavy incline of replies right when Garrin was with Xiatzu
No. 129573 ID: 9876c4

Maybe there was a misconception that people were funding guaranteed smut rather than the interactive text adventure this is.

You haven't hit a high point with these characters yet like a major stripfight, or the bombing of the bridge. Maybe people are feeling antsy.

I don't think you should change how you do things to better monetize them, though.
No. 129574 ID: 8275cf

Patreon payments are automatic, and the declines were not accidental

I have noticed a steady incline of suggestions, which I am very happy about.
I love how much people seem to being enjoying participating in my quest.
however I've not noticed any increase of patronage with lewd content.
many of my existing patron seem more interested in the stories, characters and designs.

I feel it's very important to allow the suggesters to guide the story, but from everything I've seen my suggesters and patrons are largely on the same page, wanting less lewd content rather than more.
No. 129575 ID: eeb7d9

Huh, that is unexpected...
No. 129586 ID: 54c395

It’s less I don’t want lewd content it’s just that whenever a possibility for something nsfw comes up it stands as a risk towards our character

No. 129593 ID: 8275cf

I think you misunderstand
No. 129595 ID: 73e698

That's something you might want to think about in the future, then. I'm not too sure if it applies as directly as I think it it does to King of Pentacles specifically, or if I'm carrying over a feeling that I got from other quests of yours I read before, but it seems like it's common to come out of an encounter with a sense of "this isn't the best result you could have gotten, you didn't make great decisions", which is something that'll teach suggesters to be more paranoid.

Like, I can't remember much in the way of story points that had a feeling of "yes, you did great, good job!" Maybe it's something inherent to the overall story and tone you're going for, so it might not be easy or simple to avoid, but it rarely feels like the characters (and therefore the readers) have a reason to be happy or feel good about themselves without some sort of "but" hanging over it.

So you might want to either include more "oh, I did well!" moments, or make it clearer what bad consequences are being avoided.
No. 129596 ID: 8275cf

the thing is that is incredibly difficult
King of Pentacles is not a game you can "win" or "lose"
both of those entirely depend on what the individual suggester wants out of the story
for me to congratulate them on doing very well there needs to be some ultimate objective
there isn't.
typically following Kalez' orders will be the normal guideline, but she'll be controllable in many segments as well, and thus her orders are also largely determined by suggestor choice.

however if an individual wants "X" out of the quest I can tell them how good of a job their doing achieving "X".
No. 129597 ID: 8275cf

for what it's worth, I am very happy with how the story is unfolding! so I think everyone is doing a great job!

. . . as long as other people are happy
No. 129599 ID: 73e698

I think you've taken what I said as a broader judgement than I really meant it. It's not so much the larger goal or the overall progress or lack thereof, but more the encounter-to-encounter stuff that I'm talking about. How well did the fight go for Kalez' minions, how well did her meeting with Vivian go for her, is anything Garrin's been doing meaningful? Obviously things are happening and the suggesters are making decisions that make things happen, but there's often some sort of vague feeling we could have done better, or that we stumbled past what we were actually supposed to do... or maybe we didn't? We don't know? It's the not knowing that's the problem. Just to be clear, it's not that big a problem, I'm probably making it sound worse because of how I'm trying to explain it. I'm trying to pin down something that's just a shadow of a feeling to me.

You're right about stuff depending on what people want out of the quest, but at the same time there are some things you can assume. If our player character gets in a fight, we want to win. If they're given a challenge to overcome we want to overcome it. Absolutely you want people to have control over where everything's going, and to make decisions for themselves, but if there isn't any direction at all, and you have different factions of suggesters who want different things (which seems very likely in this quest, from what moral standpoint you want to take, to who you want to ship with who, to story vs. lewds, which character specifically you want to see, etc), then you can end up with a feeling that the quest and the suggesters are just sort of staggering drunkenly through everything never quite fully doing one thing or the other. We make suggestions and then things happen, but what's the connection between what happens and what we intended, or wanted? Can there be any, if different suggesters intended and wanted different things?

It might just be a thing I'm getting. You'd need to ask if anyone else feels anything similar to this before you give it any credit.
No. 129605 ID: 8275cf

I'm afraid you've lost me with most of what you're talking about.

I have no idea how you would have me improve my quest

nor even what is even the problem, truly.

how successful was the battle in the first chapter? beyond being a victory? I don't know tally the pros and cons I guess.
how successful was the meeting with Vivian? she made an offer the suggestors refused. is that not clear? did you want something else of her?
How Meaningful have Garrin's actions been? meaningfull in what way and to who? I thought the Princess' safety had clear purpose.

I can't stop you from imagining superior outcomes, but I don't know them, only different outcomes all with different potentials and hooks
I could tell you as many as I considered, but that would be less than half of what is possible, since most outcomes I never considered.

I'm sorry you feel things lack direction, but either I don't see that or don't understand what you mean.

if you have a specific questions, a specific problem, or a specific thing you'd like me to change
perhaps I can better accommodate you.
No. 129608 ID: 68a433

I'm pretty sure I'm explaining things badly, but I'm not sure I can think of a better way to put it. It's just that when we come out the other end of any particular "scene" in the quest, I can get this feeling that things happened, but not so much that things were accomplished? Most scenes, when I consider suggesting, I feel like I should try to be, like... sensible. Not to think too much outside the box, because what'll get chosen is probably going to be something more expectable. Obviously being sensible is good, but it can also start feeling a little uncolourful if it goes on too long. It might be that the characters themselves, personality-wise, mostly seem like they're not the types that would come up with or go along with more unusual ideas.

It's also possible that I just haven't invested myself enough. I read the quest whenever I see it's updated, and I suggest now and then, but I don't have any strong feelings about what I want to see happen eventually, so I don't have a point of reference for how I should feel about the outcome of whatever's going on at that moment. All that I have to think about is the scene at hand, so if there's not much to think about in for that scene then I feel like the quest isn't asking me to think much in general. On top of that, it might be leaning my motivation more to "I want to try and pick the best answer" when the thing that decides what's best (contribution to a long-term goal) doesn't actually exist in my case. Like I'm looking at the choices too much as puzzles to be solved in themselves rather than as steps to something else. So it's very likely that all my problems are just me.

It's still a good quest!

Xiatzu:'most of my work is copying public bulletins and decrees sent out by noble households, I also copy old records and histories.
Once in a while a very strange person asks for something very strange.
A couple weeks ago a huge woman over eight feet tall comes to my store.
This woman was of powerful build and covered in armor plates and wrapped bandages.
She looked to be of some knightly order, she had the crest of the binder god.
she did not speak a word but through gesture told me she wanted parchment.
I offered her a sheet, and she used it to tell me she wanted all the parchment and ink I had.
obviously I told her I could do nothing for her, I do not deal with adventurers, it always leads to trouble.
She left after that.

How exactly did you meet Archduke Midas? Do you think things have changed ever since you've come into power, minus the undead and possible world ending."

Duchess Kalez: 'Peasants are parasites, the weak in their villages huddle around the strong of the castles for the safety and nurishment they think it provides.
like fleas upon a dog they suckle at the life blood of a more powerful creature, they scrape, scrounge or steal any coin they can get.
All the while these pathetic wretches dream of power, thinking it will make them happy.
Yes I was such a parasite, such a filthy degraded theif.
I achieved the dream only for the parasites to turn thier attention on me, I am no longer thier sister I have become thier host.

I learned this long before meeting Midas, he was a warrior eager to learn his place in the universe my insite gave him power and in return he granted me station and alliance that served us both.
and ultimately our divine patron.'

Solia: 'we try not to dwell, an impossible dreams for us, that it will never happen, that is our greatest fear. this only makes us miserable . . .'
Remia: 'but this dream is different, we have it every night, we could want nothing more, if only it could come true, we would be so happy'
Laret: 'we would be so free, we could go do whatever, go anywhere we could want, our sisters could not block, we could have fun forever '
Fason: 'There is power in numbers, we would be five wholes, not one with five souls, none could stand against us, all would tremble in fear.'
Mifal: 'We would do just anything, if only this could happen, we have made many deals, the golden scorpion promises much, but she also tells lies . . .'

At the Duchess' ball, you explore the gardens. The calm of the foliage contrasts the fervor and exuberance of the party. The high energy is nice in its own way, but you prefer meditation with the plants. The bud of a rose lures you towards a field of color, a soft light glistening off the dew coating each flower's petals. Posed there, backlit by the moon beams hitting the lake, is him. Garrin... In this small corner of the garden, which may as well be a world wholly separate from the surrounding guests...

You see his dick.

"His penis was erect and turgid, like an erect penis. He plundered her body like a bulldog uprooting a flowerbed."
