The dis thread for a quest about a herd of sheep.
Feel free to ask questions and throw some critique/feedback at me.

I heard Marsh is a fan of computers. =P

She's a wolf, so why is she wearing wool?

Unless she's a literal "wolf in sheep's clothing" traitor?

With the first thread of The Herd finished, I'd like to thank everyone who's made it to the end with me for sticking around. I hope it's been as enjoyable to read as it is to write!

College is kicking into high gear for me though, and I might be taking a break to keep up with the load of work!

In the mean time, I'd love to hear back from everyone on a few things.

For new readers who haven't read Blind Quest, have things been easy to understand? Were there any moments, scenes, etc, that didn't really make sense or felt confusing? If so, what could I do to make things clearer and easier to understand?

Then for everyone,
What are some things I could do to improve the quest in general?

What parts/scenes did you enjoy the most? What about the least?

What would you like to see more of in The Herd?

Any other comments and critique are also very much welcome. Thanks for reading!

>What about the least?
Not having the magic lighter carry over annoyed me. It seems silly she left it behind. But that's a pretty small thing.

>What are some things I could do to improve the quest in general?
Some of the decision points seemed a little weird to me- like, we would agree to go with someone to someplace to do something, and then they would ask us what we wanted to do when we got there.

For instance, this might have been me reading signals wrong, but it seemed odd that after deciding to not pursue leads and go home to bed that we then had a Marsh prompt for activities.

Neither of those is really a serious criticism, though. Overall I'd say you did well and I had fun. The addition of the sprite artwork is a big improvement.

I agree about the magic lighter.

First, sorry for bumping up the thread with a minor "update" here

Little update about what's been going on and where The Herd went this week.
Been having a lot of annoying on and off power outages this week and haven't really been able to work on The Herd at all. Plus exams were this week as well. It's sounding like the power issues are going to be going on for awhile yet, so at worst The Herd might become The Hiatus for a week or two yet.

Until then, feel free to drop some questions and feedback (which are always welcome) and enjoy this doodle of Marsh.

Take your time and thanks for the warning.
(on another topic talking about a cheap alternate to buying that can of compressed air is if her sister has a hair dryer you can just put a cardboard cone [with a 5mm hole at the tip] on it and that'll be a sufficient enough pressure to remove at least some of the dust {just watch out if it only has a hot setting because it could catch the cardboard alight from the direct heat})

Another goofy little "news"-ish post.

First, some life stuff. Going back to the last post, >>118795
Power issues I was having are (seemingly) fixed. Hasn't been a power outage here in awhile. College is getting close to wrapping up for me and I'll be graduating in May and then joining Candy on the hunt for a job. The Herd might hit another hiatus or slow down again towards late April and through May.

Now for some stuff for The Herd.
I've been digging around old pictures and sprites, and found some concept art/scene from last year of the gang (minus Sugar, she was in charge of photo taking that day.) Looking at back some of the other scenes has me wanting to do some more, but can't really decide on anything. So, I'm willing to take on some sprite scene requests for The Herd. Feel free to drop some ideas or requests here in the dis-thread.
As always, any questions, comments, feedback, and critique are all welcome.

This is just kind of a quick question thing. I feel like I had things go a little all over the place with the last thread here. This might be a little too "meta" but I'm wondering what'd I can do to make the next thread better or more interesting? What makes The Herd an interesting quest for you? What parts make it not interesting?

Any feedback/critique is welcome!
No. 125070 ID: 891b91

Sorry for the lateness of this -- I only just now got caught up through volume 4.

>I feel like I had things go a little all over the place with the last thread here.
The thread meandered a bit and seemed a bit aimless at times, but I don't necessarily think that's a bad thing. I get the impression that you were trying establish to multiple "subplots" over the past couple threads: Sharcole's insomnia, the cultists, the police investigation, whatever is going on with Sugar, etc., which will play out in more detail in future threads. If that's the case, then I think it justifies the relative lack of focus in that thread.

>what I can do to make the next thread better or more interesting?
I think the next thread should focus on one or two of the subplots I mentioned above. If there are still more future plot events that you want to set the stage for, you could still do that in thread 5; but for the sake of keeping things interesting, I think at least one of the subplots needs to start developing further. (For example, maybe we'll find out what's causing Sharcole's insomnia and begin working to get rid of or otherwise deal with it.) I think it would also be interesting to start seeing hints that some or all of these subplots are connected in some way.

>What makes The Herd an interesting quest for you?
The characters are the main point of interest for me, especially Candy, Marsh, and Sharcole. (Officer Nibbles and Officer Freeze get an honorable mention.) I'm not sure how to describe why they make it interesting for me, aside from saying that I like their personalities. Aside from that, I have a hunch that the various plot threads are somehow intertwined, and I'm interested in seeing how that plays out.

>What parts make it not interesting?
I think some segments of the quest took longer than they should have -- the Old Maid game stands out in particular, but I seem to recall some of the segments at the cafe were longer than I would have preferred, as well. This isn't to say that no segment should be lengthy, but rather that the length should be justified by what happens during them. The Old Maid game, for example, seemed to mainly be meant to introduce some new characters, and I think it might have been better to just skip to the results of the game (at the expense of railroading the game itself).

>Sorry for the lateness of this -- I only just now got caught up through volume 4.

No problem! Thanks for checking it out and for the feedback! Hopefully with volume 5 things will get rolling and a little more interesting.
Dead Dust is a pretty cool quest by the way!

Thanks! The Herd is really neat, too!

Giving this bump with the end of thread 6.

I might be taking a short break before starting up the next thread. In the mean time, what did you all think this thread and Roxie's
intermission? Any/all feedback is appreciated!

Sadly it seems like Marsh's computer problems are spreading to mine now. Starting to have some issue's with my hard drive and had to order a new one.

I'm probably going to play things safe and put the herd on hold until I get things backed up on a hard drive that isn't dying with my main one. Should only be a few days, but thought it would be worth mentioning now in case something does happen and I'm gone for longer.
No. 129956 ID: a9af05

You know what I'm kinda hoping will happen? I'm hoping that Candy ends up like Riku from Kingdom Hearts!

She'll be able to effectively use the power of darkness to fight evil and she won't become corrupted by the darkness!

This ended up giving me the idea of Candy cosplaying as Riku and I couldn't resist it.

It would be interesting to see happen, that’s for sure.

Small birthday bump. Did a little doodle of Candy with a cake to celebrate my birthday today. And in a few weeks it'll also be the 2 year anniversary of The Herd. I might do picture to celebrate it, but not sure what I'd do.
No. 130783 ID: 40a1cb

Happy birthday! Even if I am late. And you should totally do an anniversary picture, something like the main cast all posing under a banner with a legend like: "two years and counting" Or something. It should really be you deciding though, this is your legacy, after all.
No. 130988 ID: 15a025

Another kind of life update.

Things haven't been really going all that great for me.

The Herd and my other quest aren't dead, but I just want to give everyone a heads up it might be awhile before I get back to working on them.
