Quest: https://tgchan.org/kusaba/quest/res/915048.html

Disthread for my first ever Quest! I'm very new to this and probably really awful, so I'd love feedback and suggestions. Actually, the quest will probably die without them. Especially if I keep railroading this badly. Haha.

Who, Deer? If so, then let's carry on then.
Never heard of this Elagabalus guy. Sounds like a real piece of work.
How do you know so much of this stuff anyway? I am learning losts of things. In TG. How?

I would have been an historian if I didn't drop out. I've studied a lot of other things too. My degree was 'English Language' which covers a lot of things from how babies first learn to speak to how racism forms to the economical situation of the English Kingdom in 1600. And of course my favourite, how 9/11 was a CIA plot. Miss you Mr William Schnabel, hope your retirement's as fun as your lectures. He made a book about how Lovecraft is racist. Frankly, I haven't read it, because I don't like Lovecraft I like Tolkien.

Personally, I think that if you want to know anything as far a 'social' sciences are concerned (which are REAL sciences with many useful applications just like STEM fields), you need to know a lot of diffuse things, because any social issue is the cause, consequence and context of at least twenty other things. So knowing a bit about psychiatry, philosophy, or even joining the army can help you understand a historical personality or knowing the basics of economy can explain, say, the rise of certain ideologies. General knowledge like that is also a capital skill for storywriters and artists, because that's one thing to say "she's a gay ruler", it's different to explain how it matters. Well, personally I'm enjoying the characters without the need for drawn out explications over their world, so I don't mind.

Don't take sources on her as objective fact. Most of the most trustworthy ones were written by Dio from a position of EXTREME hostility towards her, and definitely not intended to look good.

That said, I never said I idolize this person. They're simply a queer ruler who came to mind, because I recently wrote about them in a dissertation on gender dysphoria. None of their other deeds or politics are relevant here. I may as well have chosen Queen Anne, or Frederick the Great, or Al-Hakam II, or Ludwig Viktor.

The people Reno is actually based on can be seen in >>127111, I'm sorry to say.

Isn't a thing anymore? I thought it meant the same thing as transgender. Is that what you mean, it's an obsolete term?

It's considered anything from mildly offensive to simply scientifically inaccurate. The correct term is transgender, and has been for about twenty years now.

No. 128345 ID: bcc41d

Bah, you philistines! It was a practical life-saving suggestion! Now Eth can safely cross off that particular box on her bucket list without ever getting mauled by Thorne in the process! Unless there's another checkbox further down called "Tease Thorne about that time I kissed her"...

Really though, Eth trying to give Thorne air to keep her from dying was, I feel, illustrated in a cool and badass way. Me getting to deploy 'the kiss of breath' in a sentence is just a sweet bonus (to my incorrigible punny bone) and I'm happy the Deervine didn't feel obliged to insert inappropriate lewds (given the situation) into Eth's head because of it.

So far, EthQuest has functioned on a weird scheduled, where I hop online whenever I can, and draw a few updates.

I've gotten a... mixed response to this. Some people love it, some people hate it.

Now I don't want to be working on this quest for several years, so I don't intend to slow down. But should I work out a schedule for when a session starts, so more people who are interested have the opportunity to join in? Say, every week on saturday at 2 PM CET, and extra dates whenever I announce them. Or is the current method fine for you folks?

Yeah, i agree with this, is all right with me as long as i have time to write suggestions.

No. 128360 ID: bcc41d

Count me among those that like the rapid update style despite sometimes missing the chance to make input. Scheduling a good usual time will always be relative to you, and some people may start missing out on a chance to participate during sessions due to it being in the middle of their sleep/work/whatnot. I'd rather you varied it some, like you have been doing, rather than limiting to certain times of the day/week.

I'm not gonna diss on the method completely, mind. You can always announce when you plan to do a spree and just see what comes of it.
>>
No. 128378 ID: 270774

as one of the people who struggles to keep up: don’t worry about it. the people who have the flexibility to consistently participate are having fun, and the people who don’t can still backread and leave suggestions in the lull between update sessions, and i think that evens out to being fine for everyone. plus, the most important thing is that it’s the update method that works for you. i think that trying to make things more rigid and schedule stuff is just going to put unnecessary strain on you.

i do agree with >>128360 that there’s no harm in throwing a quick “hey, i might be updating tonight” in the disthread sometimes especially if you think you’ll get a lot of updates done, so that people can try to be around, but i guess that might get cumbersome/cluttered depending on how often it happens. at the end of the day i think you should just stick to whatever’s easiest for you.

Just realized I never actually posted that comment I thought I had three weeks ago. Now I feel rather the dullard.

Anyway, just wanted to tell you how cool I think this quest is. So far, the story has really been quite good. But I must say, the art is my favorite part. You basically use my favorite style; grayscale with deep color accents. So maybe I'm just biased, but I certainly love the art.

Eth is also pretty sexy, which, I mean, is kinda important. And also Reno.
And also Thorne.

Come on let's face it, Thorne's just fat (well she's probably all muscle but come on, one has to have a very specific taste to call that sexy, she's cool and big and dope, but not sexy, not that there's anything wrong with that)

p.s. - no offense to anyone who claims otherwise

What you said is kinda rude.

Even if she is fat, she can still be sexy if she wants to be sexy.

Criticism is like spoiled meat.

It smells bad, tastes bad, sometimes just looking at it makes you sick.

But if it's properly prepared (constructive criticism) than eating it not only provides nutrition, but also builds immunity to the harmful effects.

Then there's unprepared, spoiled meat (haters). Eating that shit is just gonna tear you up from the inside.

That was a complicated metaphor who's basic massage was; don't take hate, because hate tastes like spoiled meat.

Would an analogy of trying to swallow a whole, live pufferfish verses eating properly prepared fugu work better?

Yeah probably. My analogy was spoiled meat cause I was eating discount steak at the time of writing.

The art style of this quest is quite abstract and much different from Eth. Not that I mind, I find it quite interesting. As long as it's not used to censor certain things too much heh. What I'd like to ask is, what made you decide on this art style and will it remain the same through the whole quest?
>>
No. 129199 ID: 4bfa7c

>>129197
Gotta see how well it works, it'll probably develop quite a bit.

It was inspired partly by middle american art- mayan and aztec especially- and modern day pop art, with some dunmer thrown in.

So, updating has been kinda difficult lately, because people haven't been... suggesting much. This is probably my fault, since I'm the one running the quest, but bear with me, I'm still an amateur.

Should I switch to a lettered system, like Coxwette? Always keeping a blank option for people who have their own suggestions? It might help keep up the pace a little, and encourage more people to join in.
>>
No. 129562 ID: bb78f2

It may also be because we're in a difficult, slow, puzzley situation, so some suggesters are waiting for the hard part to be over, preferring a more active and smarter people to solve the situation for them.

I'm speaking for me, mostly. Don't know how many other's feel the same, but there's a good chance. Even with the lettered system, people might just be waiting for updates to pile up to binge through and better get their bearings on the environment. The Castle attack and escape was very active, so it was react and GOOOOOO! Don't think, DO!

Knowing that though, I'll suggest more. I'm not that confident in my answers so the letters will help a lot.

Yeah, i agree with this, i am more of the "spark of moment" than the "calmly finish the puzzle". I don't dislike it, i just have a really hard time with puzzles, and because English is my second language too.

I am loving the quest so far!
