Hey, just for checking! Are we going to be able to use other party members? Troy and Ichigo is our usual squad but I think that Chopper and Eto are also a good ideia when scavanging or completing certain jobs.
No. 126177 ID: a451fc

Maybe, if you go to meet another character and talk to them you might be able to ask them to help on a job, you do know where most of them live or hang out most of the time. Though they might ask for money if it's a job. You won't be able to round up a whole posse and just storm an abandoned bunker though, not yet anyway.

No. 126181 ID: d3602f

Yep, The Fool definitely fits Roland.
No. 126184 ID: eeb7d9

Wasn't that Troy? I thought Roland was The Hanged Man.
No. 126187 ID: 0e2ebe

That was Roland's Halloween costume, and honestly very different from the tarot version.
No. 126188 ID: d3602f

The way I remember it, Troy was the Emperor, at least prereboot. Gallows was the hanged man, yes, but tarot cards are not just about personality, they are about situations. As far as I can remember, Gallows only fit The Hanged Man so far as that he was almost hanged. In this reboot he's never been in danger of being hanged. At least, not as far as I can tell. The Gallows came from his father, so we don't really have any reason to think he was almost hanged.
No. 126191 ID: fa2b06

Oh, I think it was more methaporical than literal, prereboot gallows wished to reset the world. As quote, unquote, the "The Hanged Man is the card of ultimate surrender, of being suspended in time and of martyrdom and sacrifice to the greater good."
No. 126197 ID: eeb7d9

I see. So, what kind of card would represent Roland in this SR?
No. 126200 ID: fa2b06

The fool, The Magician and The Chariot, depending of the context and general ideias. Honestly I'm not really that experienced in tarot reading but I think I can pinpoint theses three.
No. 126202 ID: 1872dc

Sounds about right. Is there one specifically for scholars? I kinda remember that falls under the Magician but is that the specific card, or is that just for learning magical knowledge?
No. 126211 ID: d3602f

I think the Magician represents great potential, and the capability of using that potential. It doesn't necessarily mean
potential in knowledge though, I think it could include great skill in using a specific weapon, or someone's expertise in sculpting. If you're incredibly skilled at something, or have the potential to become so, it falls under the Magician.

I think the most scholarly card might be the Hermit, which kind of represents, well, being alone, searching for knowledge, and giving that knowledge to others. I think the card is more related to wisdom and knowledge about the nature of people, not intelligence, or external knowledge about the world and it's functions. Think more psychiatrist who understands why people feel a certain way and how they can become at piece with it, rather than an engineer or biologist who work immutable facts.

No. 126236 ID: 787c3d

Is TempleOS the standard operating system in this world?
No. 126250 ID: 26bb62

The Hermit is more symbolic of inner knowledge and solitude. The closest Major Arcana card to seeking outside knowledge would be The Moon, which can symbolize revealing answers.
No. 126251 ID: 26bb62

I think Temperance might fit Roland better. It represents patience, calmness, and finding meaning in our lives.

I wanted to use this gif instead of the still image, but used the wrong one on accident. I'm having fun making gifs, anyway is there a way to replace an image without having to delete the whole post and reposting?
No. 126334 ID: 080aaf

Certain mods can replace images - report your post with a link to the new image.
No. 126335 ID: 05ff2f

>...is there a way to replace an image without having to delete the whole post and reposting?
On your own, no. Only a site moderator can do that, as far as I know. If you get on the #tgchan IRC channel you could ask one on there to swap out the image for you.

It's also possible a mod will see your post here and replace the image without you even needing to contact them further, but being proactive would probably work better.
No. 126336 ID: 05ff2f

The report function is really for that too? I always thought it was supposted to be just for stuff like reporting spam and other rules violations.
No. 126337 ID: 080aaf

Right at the top of /quest/ it says to report completed threads. It's a function for getting the attention of mods.

Or would this guy leave something else instead of a quarter?

I bet he doesn't even need a pillow to replace your teeth with quarters. Heck, he could probably do it while they are still in your mouth.

Why do i get a feeling that we are going to end up with a demon inside Roland all buddy-buddy?

It would actually be cool, a Lige of Incredible "Gentlemen". We have Roland, craizy action nerd, Princes the possessor, Vol the bard, Troy the subterfuge, and Ichigo the mutant. Yeah. I like that. Or would it be more like star crusaders? Somilite many possibilities.

There, it should be fixed now. It probably happened because of my laptop's pad is fucked up, so sometimes when i am typing something, i accidentaly touch the pad and i do things by mistake. It is a real pain in the ass. Some times is a silly mistake, some times it ruins a whole League of Legends's game, fucks a part of my homework, makes me re-write suggestions, etc.
No. 126722 ID: a451fc

There's no need to police what other suggesters suggest, If Troy could or couldn't make it I would have pointed that out in the next update. If something's not possible then it most likely won't happen but everybody's free to suggest what they want (within reason). If one suggester is locked on a certain goal they'd like to accomplish they are free to continue to attempt to do it whether it will or will not happen. I'd like to keep hostility in the quest down as much as possible please.

We were focusing on the wrong people. We were waifuing Ada and Hazel, ignoring the perfect husbando. His chains had ignited our passions, for we had our heart chained to him. No one could make us feel the way he made us feel. The lightness of breath, the heat of emotion, the angelic aura about him. He, and the possible interactions we may have had with him, shall be missed.

That's hard since I like almost all of my characters I can't just pick a favorite. I think right now Troy's up there, I like the design I gave him plus his ability is one I've had in my head since high school so I'm glad I get to use it.

I think only two or three didn't show up? Somewhere in the future maybe I'll find a way to use the characters, but it isn't guaranteed. I'd also love it if the original creators of some of the characters talked a little more about them, but I have no idea if any of them still read or follow this quest.

I foreshadowed the church a bit. I do plan for them to show up in the future.

That's kind of a hard question. I guess I get inspiration from whatever I'm reading or watching at the time. Delphi's super stretchiness came about after I began reading One Piece. Overall I think post apocalyptic fiction like Mad Max and Fallout were a source for the setting.

One of these days. Maybe soon, maybe later who knows?

Based on this response, can we assume that Ada's hot older brother is indeed, hot?

The basic concept behind Lady was someone who sacrificed her identity to cleanse her home of a ghost plague. Her previous self has been erased from the memories of everyone who knew her, including herself. I could probably flesh out her past a bit more, but I don't want to make something that would conflict with your setting.

As for current Lady, she has a few goals that she would be working towards. The most important goal is to hunt down whoever caused the plague. The second most important is to clean up any other messes that person made. The third is to buy back her identity.

If you're alright with changing her design a bit, she could do with a shovel and bowtie. Baron Samedi was one of the inspirations for her.

Let me know if you need anything else. I'm always lurking.

Er, were you trying to link to a post in the quest board? If so, you need to put /quest/ before the post number. Also, in general, you gotta put the target board name in your links every time you inter-board link.
No. 126961 ID: a451fc

He is as hot as I can make a circular face with some circles for eyes.

Glad to see you're still here Shaman. I was sorta worried you'd stopped following the quest, but it's good to know you're lurking here. Say whatever you want to say about Lady, I'll do my best to stay faithful to your character but the new setting might mean that somethings will be different.

I was thinking about making little character cards to give characters a little fun trivia and enemies more backstory they don't get in the quest since so far all of them die in like 10 panels. When I do I'll draw their angels too.

Troy plays Mario

Ichigo plays Metaknight
and Vol plays Kirby

This list is not accurate but sooner or later I'll come back to this.

Is this sarcasm? Hard to tell.

Well, I'll speak my piece anyway. It makes sense to me, seeing as Bowser is pretty strong and good with defensive play, like the Caesura abilities. Caesura isn't very effective at long range combat though, at least not right now.
No. 127053 ID: eeb7d9

No no, i honestly didn't expected Bowser, i imagined something like Villager or Snake, or someone who uses tools or something like that, Roland's best wapon is his imagination, always getting out of situations using his ingenuity. Or maybe Ness, He has powers but uses tools as well.

REGAN: Just like humans, demons have multiple forms of communication. The human languages however are different from our own; This difference allows certain demons to utilize a dormant ability known as Omnilingualism which allows the demon to understand the human language just by hearing it for a long enough time. Imps are one such demon who utilize this ability, however it takes them around 2-4 Months of being exposed to a human language to understand it fluently.

REGAN: Some demons think that the reason human and demon languages are so different is due to the fact that each respective language is so internalized into each respective species that the meaning and power behind their letters and words give off a different energy, but this is only a theory.

Not really, I guess that time suggestors actually used the drugs and mandrake corpse to capture a displacer beast like I meant for them to do was sort of close? Not to make it sound like I have no faith in readers but after the door puzzle before it I wasn't sure.

Also I was thinking less Mario and Luigi and more Yume Nikki

Hey I read this over the last few days, its quite good. My favourite character is Vol for some reason.

I have some minor questions which probably arent things you have to stay quiet on for spoilers' sake.

If demons can't return to the Aether, how do they know whats in the, material plane(did the real world get a specific name, i dont remember)? What do demons in general think of the material plane? How common are demons anyway?
No. 127226 ID: a451fc

Glad you like the quest! Sorry it's been slow lately

Low demons like Vol would usually have no idea how to get back, but high demons do and High demons tend to talk about what they see, and the majority of lower demons in the Aether don't think about the material that much but high demons do think there is a lot to gain from it. Demons are fairly common in D3.

Is Troy being gay a thing that was carried over from the original D3 or is it a change you made for the reboot?

It's a little annoying to come back to like 5+ replies to see most of them is arguing but I don't seem to have control over that. Don't discredit someone else's suggestions, unless they're seriously offensively dumb or bad. Suggesting that a character who has the most interest in demons may be related to the presence of demons somewhere they normally shouldn't be isn't too outlandish. If you think the demons naturally occur in the dream world you can always suggest asking that inquest. These arguments happen too often for no real reason, if they continue at this rate we'll have one argument per thread and I'd hate for that to happen.

On a different note. Sorry for the inactivity once again. I don't think I'm going to abandon Slight Return anytime soon, I'll try keep up with the updates as best as I can, If anybody want's to ask questions or have things to say I'm always happy to hear.
No. 127809 ID: d3602f

Yeah, some people need to disagree civilly. Even if you're very much against a course of action, there is no need to make it personal.

Part of me really wants to retcon certain parts of D3, but I'm worried it'll be messy or just plain unnecessary for the story since the things I want to change are inconsequential to what's happening in the narrative.
No. 127882 ID: 4294c6

I'd say only retcon stuff if it affects things going forwards. Needing to write around plot holes or defunct character traits is worse.

You can also edit the previous threads and convert them into a visual novel.
No. 127883 ID: a451fc

It's really just tiny stuff, Like wanting to change Troy's ability name from 「The Doors」to「Escape」. I guess that's really it since the other thing I want to change is basically just a character design thing, but I feel like it'd be so obvious people would wonder why it's there.
No. 127886 ID: d3602f

Personally I think "The Doors" makes more sense, seeing as we can use it to do a lot more than escape. Our fight against Johnny and Jitter saw us using it to shoot from unexpected angles and cut at snakes without getting near them.

Whichever you choose doesn't really matter that much to me though.
No. 127888 ID: a451fc

It's more about how I like the way Escape's lyrics about personal freedom and living life your own way work with Troy wanting to get away from Channing. I guess the name doesn't really matter all that much.

How would I go about doing that?
