The tgchan Caravan, Maze of the Heart, Astara, pretty much all of Fractal's quests, Hoviet Sero, Magic West, Red Sands, and fucking Oblitus. guess what they all have in common.

this is the thread to bitch about it.

also EDF, Starit's quests, Som's quests, Ed's quests, that first ever quest with the 3D models, and any others I haven't mentioned which you like a lot.

there was once a hobo. he was sad. the end.

No. 70859 ID: 19b3c3

They're dead! (Or on hiatus). Along with approximately a thousand other quests.

Currently, I'm mourning Breaking Reality. I know the majority of text quest hating philistines won't care, but I'm still hoping that one had some BP left before it died.

Man, that story sucks! How can you be sure he's a hobo? Do you for sure he's sad? What if he's just contemplative?
What reason would he have for being sad anyways? Such a marvelous beard should make all his worries meaningless!

No one mourns for SCOM...

Considering the mortality rate of xcom operatives, it would be incredibly silly to do so.

Also, quest authors aren't allowed to mourn their dead quests, especially since they're free to revive them at any time. (Quest authors could bemoan their own failings, instead, I guess. Sort of a sisyphean penance?).

Heheheh, wondered when someone would notice. However, that quest died due to lack of participation. If I thought anyone were interested, I'd revive it immediately. However, market research has not shown any such thing. Just look at these numbers!

solution is cool down. you have something silly happen then have something NOT silly happen. it prevents exponential escalation as you try to top the last thing. the normal makes even low lvl silly stand out.

Does anyone think any of these quest might make a comeback now that summers practically here or do you think it would be better not to get your hopes up?

I honestly have no idea how old anyone is here (I'm not asking either) but it sounds like most are still in school (in either high school or college) So I figured once people got some more free time on there hands some of these quest might get a second breath of life

I might bring Black Company back if there's enough participation for a decent army. Maybe I should do some sort of pre-signups.

Since /tg/chan has less people circulating than /tg/, it may also help to give the officers each some low-level NPC soldiers to control, like they normally do when people go missing. That may make officer more appealing, since complaints were that more than one wasn't needed, and allow them to fill empty space in the army.

I'm still here, and fully intend to run Soviet Hero again soon. But real life comes first, you know? Once I stop being so busy, Sero will be back.

TGChan Caravan will be back at some point, there is just some author difficulty happening with RML I think. I'm going to talk to her about it. Don't sweat it!

Well, DEAD quests are quests that haven't even gotten through one thread. Hiatus quests are ones that stuck around for a second chapter then went to the graveyard, and those are the ones that really bum me out.

what I love most about this thread is that it is leading me to some great quest, some of which I can't even find on the wiki page. Sucks that all of them are dead though.

No. 70978 ID: 19b3c3

>>70977
Pretty sure everything mentioned here should be in the wiki. If there's something you can't find, I'd be more than happy to drop a link.

The most likely offender that jumps to mind is [+], which is actually wiki-ed as "Plus", since the wiki don't take kindly to brackets or plus signs.
>>
No. 70986 ID: 9ddf68

>>70978
well what I meant was that yeah the quest are in the wiki It's just that some of them don't show in the Category:Quests page take Dragon Dance for example, if you type it in the search box on the wiki it takes you straight to the quest page but if you look in the Category:Quests page it isn't there, at least not under D but I don't have a clue where else you would find it

some other quest I couldn't find on the Category:Quests where Maze of the Heart, Astara, Last flight of the sparrow,and SCOM.

Might be more but those are the only ones I have found that aren't on the Category:Quests page. Again if you type them in on the search bar you'll find them in no time but if you're just checking the Category:Quests page for some quest to read for whatever reason you would have never found them.
>>
No. 70988 ID: 19b3c3

>>70986
The reason you can't find everything under [[Category:Quests]] is because when a quest dies it is added to [[Category:Dead Quests]] and removed from [[Category:Quests]] (in an attempt to keep the main list uncluttered with all the things that died prematurely). Only running quests, completed quests, and quests on hiatus show up on the main list.

Maze of Heart, Astara, and XCOM are all dead, and not on the main list. Sparrow is completed and most definitely shows up under quests (and major completed quests). It's under T though, since the first word in the title is "the".
>>
No. 70990 ID: cf49fc

>>70988
We've really got to fix that at some point. Don't half of the quests on this board start with "the"?
>>
No. 70991 ID: 19b3c3

>>70990
Nah, not really. Besides, it's not a problem at all if you're using the wiki's search function, or if you're using ctrl f instead of skimming by eye.

If you're going to complain about improper alphabetization, more egregious than the "the"s is the fact that capitals letters get extra priority. (So quest AB would be listed before quest Aa).

with the holidays just around the corner if they're not here already I thought it would be fun to just voice some X-mas wishes of quest you'd like to see come back or if the quest is already out hope it doesn't die. Cause hey, it's the holidays and miracles are know to happen around this time.

My wish list is
story time by bluewine
Life out of place by Rand
Magic West by ficus
any of what's quests
maybe something by testPattern
cutegal by BG
and for Clockwork seal to continue Unraveled or really any of his quest to come back/continue.
also hoping Astara by N sticks around even after the holiday special

How about you folks what would your holiday wish list be?

I'm really sorry it died, but it lost so much direction and I couldn't get it back. I tried again on anonkun but I lost internet for one session and then everyone stopped reading. It is not meant to be, one of those cursed concepts, sort of things.
Also I'm a terrible attention whore and I just get bored if I don't get enough feedback (for one) and there's so much good art questing these days I feel bad not having art myself. And I really don't have the time, either. Just too many factors.

I guess thanks for the mention and the feels.
