I think Reaver has most certainly shown a lot of development as a writer in this one. He's playing the long game and seems to have a pretty good idea of where things are headed. It's definately going better than Romanticar Revolution - which I feel was like the Alpha build of Redemption here. We havn't been seeing a lot of SUPER ZANY HIJINKS, but that's fine, since it allows for a more satisfying build up. It kind of reminds me of early in Romanticar Original, where he wasn't in a big rush to get to end (a problem which hit all the other Romanticars, imo). He's definately matured as an author (though by how much remains to be seen) and I sincerely hope he can keep this one up long enough to finish before he gets frustrated or bored with it.

No. 38022 ID: 234c26

>>347812
Yeah, I have to agree that I like the lack of total zaniness here. With numerous updates it doesn't feel like it slows down the story, and it provides a sense of semi-realism which really helps with getting into the plot. Certain previous Romanticars have generated a near-constant "what the fuck" reaction from me when I wasn't just facepalming, so this is a vast improvement.

Playing things close to straight (given the plot and genre) and giving them time to develop could make this into one of the best quests in a long while, as long as it doesn't break down.

hey everyone, chapter one has just ended, and it's been great.
thank you all for participating and being good sports, and thank you for all the kind words.
i am indeed trying to put build-up and character establishment/development over gimmicks and rushing out a story. ive just been following suggestions and everything has rolled into place without any planning or strategy on my part (except for the introduction/setup).
usually the romanticar titles arent really related, but as correctly guessed this one is called redemption because its my attempt at redeeming myself after abandoning friends, quests and fans when i abruptly left about a year ago. ofcourse its also called redemption because rocco is trying to redeem himself after not paying attention to his sisters feelings.
however a lot of you seem new, which is also wonderful, and im glad you enjoy the quest.
for my other works, check the wiki

im quite happy with all the quests ive done.

No. 38117 ID: 2563d4

Oh wow we're really going to argue this then.

There is a world of difference between a parody which---mocking the source material or just being playfully affectionate with it---puts in effort to be good itself, vs parodies which play up the awfulness and pretend that that's funny, rather than, say, awful.

Examples of the former: some of the Goblin Choking Quests (Rand's, in particular); many of the April Fool's quests (helped immensely by most people parodying quests they like)---the true Deep ending (which, based on the art, might even have been Beakie!) in particular.

Beakie's Silvermoon-grade stuff is more Pyst than Airplane!

No. 39478 ID: d7b78f

I'm curious as to the scale of this quest. Will it cover the entire school life of Rocco? With some time skips of course, otherwise it would take something like 4-20 years IRL to finish the quest. Or will it be something like a few weeks to a month or two where all the major events occur. Cus the effort put into some of the suggestions reflect this confusion.

Like should we care about getting a cell phone vs full school uniform and living supplies. A cell phone now means we can communicate to people quickly and easily, good for a short term quest. School supplies and clothes means we can adapt to long term school life early. Or is this all still in the air.

Because I'm kinda split between a short term quest = I try to get Rocco molested in /ss/ fashion by Robin, then go to our sister or Rachel after she gets bored of us. Though honestly if this is the case I would like Rocco to stay with Robin. OR long term where we take serious consideration into his school life and student council activity's.

I honestly cannot think of a middle ground.
>>
No. 39527 ID: 950529

the focus of the quest is peoples feelings, which will be affected by every single action, big or small. every suggestion, advice and whisper will shape Rocco's view on things, and every action he takes will shape how other people view him and possibly how they view other things as well. it might be visible, it might not be visible, since not everyone expresses themselves openly.
the goal is to help rocco develop until he can take care of himself, or get him involved with someone (or more) else who can take care of him and help him develop. the quest will also end if rocco is screwed over bad enough that damage is permanent. so the quest can keep going forever or be over quickly, depending on where it goes.
when in doubt over what material possessions to get, think of the emotional response rocco and other characters might have.

There's also the matter of how much will happen time-wise from our perspective and how much time will be skipped. Right now it's taking thousands of posts to get through a couple days and that is probably less than sustainable. It would be good if you dropped a hint on that issue for us.

timeskipping implies nothing interesting happens. but during a timeskip, you also can't make anything interesting happen. rocco will default to all the easiest actions.
life continues.
the timeskip never ends.

however, this is a quest about a boy crossdressing in an all girls school where he becomes part of the student council while his twinsister is in love with him with the help of a supernatural orb full of unstable voices giving him advice. it's interesting all the time!
>>
No. 39548 ID: 950529

about suggesting direct lines to be used in dialogue:
im happy to see suggesters really getting involved with the characters, but usually the lines provided are not something that rocco would say. obviously that makes them difficult to use.
your suggestions have a better chance of being used (at least partially) if instead you talk to rocco about the points you want him to bring up. then rocco knows what you are trying to say and can attempt to fit it into a conversation.

As far as I'm aware, nobody's complained about the current update rate.

Inventory could be helpful, I guess, but it wouldn't need more than a frame of "here's what's in your bag". And even then, that's only if it comes up as a thing that matters, which it thus far hasn't.
>and then using flash for more cinematic updates that use more than a single image.
Flash would be cool sometimes, but it's in no way necessary, the current system linking youtube music works fine, at least for me.

>I'm just gonna take my time figuring that out.

You'll forgive us for our concern I hope, but in the past "indefinite hiatus" has meant "It's over".

Issues previously mentioned in this thread and more are easily explained by me not planning anything and being easily distracted.
If I can figure out an optimal approach and stick to it, that should provide more consistency which in turns helps people get more involved.

This stuff seemed to work fine as it was. Pacing and suggester involvement were without flaws. The story isn't extremely deep, but it doesn't really need to be, and in fact greater depth might just make it harder for most people to follow.

>If I can figure out an optimal approach and stick to it, that should provide more consistency which in turns helps people get more involved.
I think that updating consistently does far more good there than any elimination of natural fluctuation in storytelling.

The quest is quite fine as it has been going. Inventory isn't much of a concern, flash would be cool, but unnecesary.

Basically, we don't care much about the format. It's fine. What we care about is the story and interaction as that is the biggest point of the quest and takes center stage. So far, it's been smooth sailing so don't sweat the small stuff.

I think the quest is going fine as it is, but, of course, I'm not seeing any of the behind-the-scenes work going on on your end. Hope the hiatus isn't too long, though, this has been one of my favorite quests to watch.

Hmmm... I can kind of see where the worry is coming from in this, what with us still being pretty early in the whole thing, despite how long its been going. If you're looking at matters of pacing, you need to consider the overall length of the work in question. We are still early in the first act, which would imply that this would go on for a long time, but it may seem as though things are just dragging instead. Reaver typically makes Romanticar quests fairly short. Conversly, the way things are going with this one, it would definately qualify for a long-runner standing if it keeps up this pace - this may be causing some conflict with his or our expectations.

We can't even timeskip all that much at this point given that we still have a lot of important establishing work to do. We have to go to classes, go to clubs, all that fun stuff. We need to go through at least another day or two before we can even dream of jumping ahead or fast forwarding, and that could take a long time at this rate. If Reaver has any plans for mid or late game, that could be quite frustrating for him.

If Reaver wants to step away from the project to re-evaluate how he wants to handle it, then more power to him, I say. If he wants to do flash and stuff and figure out new ways of handling his quest, again, that's his buisness. If he decides to do some other quest, again, all him. I just hope its not the last we hear of him or Redemption.

>If Reaver has any plans for mid or late game
I think the point here is that Reaver doesn't have any plans. He established the characters and the setting and stuck to them but gave zero thought to how things should turn out. Which has some benefits I think, but if anything keeps going strong without any steering or breaks it will eventually crash and burn. I imagine he doesn't want that kind of thing to happen (again) so here we are.

That's right. I'm not trying to get it just right, but as it is now it's not good enough.
A lot of the issues that are going on I am hiding from all of you; That's why it may appear like there's no problems, but I have narrowly avoided crashes several times now. I tried to just keep rolling, but since the same issues keep popping up, it's obvious I need to change something.
What exactly the problem is and what exactly needs to be changed is what I am thinking about.
That said I really appreciate everyone's involvement and devotion! You're a great audience to work with.
I hope I can get Romanticar up and running again soon, but haste makes waste.

You should probably plan out some vague framework of where you want the story to go. Important events you want to happen and potential ways that encounters can turn out. This doesn't mean railroad - just a light sketch of a plot that you erase and revise based on what suggesters do.

I personally think this is relatively fundamental for running a quest that doesn't suck.

The theme and tone remain constant, but they're otherwise unrelated. I'd not bother with any of the unfinished ones. That leaves three self-contained stories for you. The first Romanticar, though finished, is decidedly less coherent than the other completed ones and the currently running one, but you may enjoy it nonetheless.

most of them share some characters and make references to the others, but you can read them induvidually.
in order of creation its ( I think )
-Romanticar
-Romanticar 2 (unfinished)
-Romanticar 3 (unfinished)
-Romanticar Underground
-Romanticar 2k2x
-Romanticar Supremacy (unfinished)

Romanticar Revolution is the only one unrelated (and its also unfinished).
Romanticar Redemption is also unrelated.

On another note, I'm going to try to stick to just one update a day, but make them more thorough.

So I've been doing one update a day, and it has been pretty cool.
Suggestors have more time to suggest, so suggestions seem more thorough now.
I'm not sure if my updates have also improved since I'm so inconsistent, but it's certainly nice to be able to take a break. (I used to get dehydrated all the time because I'd be like "I'll get a drink when this update is done")
But, the downside is that interaction with Rocco is limited. That sucks because the back and forth between Rocco and the orb was one of the most fun parts of the quests.
So, I was thinking of trying to go back to multiple updates, but this time on a strict schedule. One that determines update time, and a suggestion deadline.
This way regulars will know what time they should check the quest to participate, without feeling rushed or missing an opportunity because they weren't F5ing all the time.
I could also set up a twitter to give updates on the updates.
Might seem overkill, but consistency has always been my major weakness. Hopefully this will help overcome that.
Let me know what you think.

I'm in GMT+1. I noticed most suggestions happen between 10PM and 4AM for me, so when I was updating in sessions I tried to hit that sweet spot.
On a schedule I'll probably try to get a bit earlier than that. I can be flexible but sleeping during the day can be impossible sometimes.

Hey everyone
As you've noticed there have been no updates.
I figured you were all tired of me going 'okay im doing it' 'wait im not doing it' 'no im doing it anyway', so I didnt want to post anything until I had something awesome to surprise you with.
But, so much time later, I still have nothing good to offer.
Apart from issues that just plain keep me from drawing, I just can't figure out how to handle this quest. Every plan was a bust. So while I don't want to give up on it I'll have to face reality and admit that there will be no updates for the time to come.
I'm very sorry to everyone who was enjoying Romanticar Redemption. I was having fun too and I had a lot more in mind for it. It's sad to leave it like this.
Let's hope the future brings salvation.

You could just throw planning and caution to the wind and recklessly use whatever arbitrary suggestions are posted. I personally think a horrible HORRIBLE shipwreck of a quest is better than the disappointment of an uncompleted one.

It'd be interesting, cause it would have the plot and character development of a "serious" quest, but suddenly the fun and spontaneous nature of a "rudy mann" quest.

A better use to throw Rocco at a wall and see what sticks, rather than to let him fall into the obscurity that is the tg graveyard.

If you decide to do that, you absolutely must:
- choose the best questmaster there is;
- dump on him all your thoughts, plans (even those busted ones), ideas, etc;
- still continue to draw the actual pictures. Because, seriously.

Although even then it still won't be the RR we've got used to and love. So, maybe, a compromise between such radical changes and abandonment can be found... like, for example, soliciting help in planning from somebody running similar successful quest(s).

You do make a good point with rather having a wreck than an unfinished quest. I'll think about it from that perspective.

Well, right now I don't have time anyway. There's some stuff I have to take care of before I can sit down for this again and it could take a while, so don't hold your breath or you might die. Just have just enough excitement to keep yourself from being sad, ok?

Haha! No matter how much I try, can't get mad at you!

You know, Romanticar (the original) was my first quest. It was the first one I got in touch, but I arrived too late to participate. I read it, anyway. And I really liked it! Seriously! Was captivated by the characters and your drawings!

I read all the other quests and wanted more. Tried to curse you for not finishing some, but found myself unable to do so. My happiness at having met such stories outweighed any disappointment.

Haha! I don't even know if you will read this! Anyway, let me say that your characters, stories and drawings have greatly improved! I mean it! I really would like you to resume the mission... However, much more than that, I want you to do well in whatever you decide to do!

By Rocco's behavior I can say that the orb itself is a potential love interest. The lube, man! The lube! Love this thought, but fear the quest turning into boring and endless pandering and cheap porn. Maybe this would work on a comic or visual novel.

It's brofist.me now, eventhough all the banners and what not still say brofist.info
Since the userbase had declined to just #brofisticuffs@rizon.net users I didn't think it that important. But if everyone is going to visit it now that means I will have to update everything! ...Some time.

Now I'd like to address Rocco not responding to everything that is suggested. (d004ed, your 'is that all? so be it' was so heartwrenching!)
Rocco will never consciously ignore a voice! Au contraire, he will try to listen to all of them as best he can. But with the amount of things in his head he has to process, parts of it will inevitably get drowned out.
When this happens not all is lost! Just repeat what you'd like to say to Rocco; either right away, or at a later (possibly better) opportunity.

YES Your offering is most acceptable.
You're basically forcing me to update!

...Or at least you've forced me to give an update on the update:
Like last time, I didn't want to keep making excuses and only show up with results.. which didn't happen. I've had the update written out for a while now; It's the drawing part that is killing me. Not just drawing Romanticar, but anything at all.
Since this is most torturous, I've initiated the crisis plan: I've ordered a new drawing tablet. It should arrive this month.
Let's hope this is the miracle.

As always you all have my sincere apologies and grand thanks for your support and dedication.

You do realize that sooner or later, some fishy, impudent individual - not naming any names - might update your quest in your stead, with less than reputable content, right?

Someone who is supposed to work on his project but keeps chronically engaging in unrelated shenanigans.

Unless you WANT Romanticar Redemption to include, for example:
-indoors RC plane dogfights combined with irresponsible use of incendiary mixtures
-1:1 scale cardboard tank battles with historically less-than-accurate uniforms
-"rap battles", if you know what I mean
-and/or more.

I jest, ofcourse, but I do have bad news.
The new tablet was a bust. It's awful to work with, and I'm returning it.
It was pretty much the last option, so.. No way for me to draw, no way for me to update.

To Rocco, there's no difference, as he's interfacing with us (and we with his world) only through the Orb. We are aware of this limitation, and in order to not introduce further confusion into Rocco's already scrambled thought stream, we (should?) act as simply the Voices.
For me, this may bleed through into discussion threads. Exactly how much is entirely dependent on my mood and the discussion topic. A little role play has never hurt anyone. Except when it did, but... yeah.

Also I'll continue to pretend I believe you guys when you pretend to be real people sitting in front of computers.
Meh, I'm just kidding. Relax.
Although you shouldn't have any means to confirm it either way.
Isn't this little game fun? I'd think that Philosophy Club members (at least some of them) would like it. Although they probably already know the right answers.

hey everyone!
im very sorry for not updating! as usual!
i havent forgotten about Rocco either- he's on my mind daily.

shit has been going down reavz-side.
some of you may know -- i dont remember if i actually mentioned it here ?? -- that throughout 2010-2011 my health just kept getting worse, until finally killing my ability to draw/quest completely. tried lots of new approaches, nothing worked..
but then!
2012!
end of the world?
just like the death tarot card means change, the year begun with a sudden flip in my condition!! health is getting back on track, baby!
good news! good news!!
but-- doesnt that mean that quests are back on track too?
no, silly, after being handicapped for years, i have a ton of shit to do to get my own life rolling. that includes finally turning drawing (comics) into a career, and going to art college (part time?).
i'm fucking swamped!

so i went from inactivity due to inactivity, to inactivity due to activity.
what is up with that!!

anyway, once i get everything set up-- well, will i still have time left to do things..?
ANYWAY, health is no longer a problem, so once time clears up, there'll be nothing standing between me and romanticar.

love that guy rocco and his crew, they the real deal, cant abandon them, or you all, loyal readers and participants, true Gs all of you.

so keep the faith!
twenty twelve represent! year of change!

p.s. picked up paper+ink again after years. what will that mean for quests?? who knows?? absolutely nothing maybe??? leave a comment, thumbs up and subscribe

No need to say more, there's no way to be better than this. I mean, your health is improving and you're progressing in your career and studies. Furthermore, the quest can benefit greatly from this. Now you'll have time to improve your drawings and find new ideas. It's like Christmas and birthday at the same time. With divorced parents... Or some other thing that duplicates gifts. Anyway, godspeed and don't die on us!

Hey everyone,

It's been a long time.

I think after all this time I should accept I won't be able to continue RoRed properly. I'm going to stop thinking about it and move on.
This unfailing hope that one day I will suddenly pick it up again will never leave my heart, but I shouldn't let it keep me from doing other things.
I'd like to try to run a new quest, something light and simple. We'll see.

Thanks again for all the support from everyone. ♥ I'll miss Rocco and the gang just as much as you.

Ah well, thank you for your time, reavz. Was great reading your stuff.

As for running a new, simpler quest: You probably don't want to go do anything fancy with your setting just yet, so may as well start with a generic fantasy world. You know, goblins, dwarves, elves and... kobolds. Actually, why not make the kobold the protagonist? Nice and simple. Lets make him a bard too, to give it a bit of a twist. Now, cause we don't want to become complex, we're gonna have to compress multiple characters into one. I've got this neat idea from an old quest, involving romantic interests and family members and a cat...

Just joking! Looking forward to whatever you do in the future! Good health to you, boy princess!

Perfect time for me to make another passionate declaration about Romanticar... If I didn't know that it could send you on a guilt trip.

It may not be what we wanted, but it's a closure. Actually, I'm relieved. This quest shouldn't be remembered as something unfinished, expectations and promises to hold you back, but as a great time we had together - and for that I can't thank you enough.

Anyway, more than anything else, I'll always wish the best for you. Take care.
