Someone's probably said it before, but honestly, it's very similar to running a tabletop game, like D&D, except everyone's controlling the same character. So really, the secret is remembering that the random elements in the game are the fact you've got potentially dozens of people coming up with things to do.

Pick what works, roll with the rest. And remember: you can always give characters agency. If people aren't playing along or just being butts, the character can point that out. If anything, it's a good way to handle it:

Alright so it's been voted back in https://www.strawpoll.me/18101240
that the next sidequest will be a civquest. First one I'm actually running, and the system I got isn't totally done, so I'm gonna shoot some questions about it here. If you wanna answer or chip in your own feedback, feel free.

Also I'm posting whatever I sketch since I'm sick atm, and more of my time is spent doodling on whatever scrap of paper I got and less on the tablet. So here goes.

Like for real I spend way to much time on 4x and Grand strategy, while also formulating ideas for this quest for hours whilst at my boring, mindless job. I don't even know all the rules.

Like, what does industry do?
Is construction speed and max parallel construction limit influenced by Pops? Unassigned Pops? Industry? Holding being improved within? What even is the current max parallel construction limit?

How does food work? What is the base production per holding without upgrades? How much does each pop eat per turn? or is it per season?
We have food stored. It's been depleting thanks to the siege, and we've been rationing automatically. Besides pop loss, what's the effect of rationing? Could we have opened the food stores freely and queued the farm improvement?

That's just what comes off the top of my head. I'm sure there's more.

As long as our general suggestions are interpreted as the actions of moderately proficient Civ players, I'm fine.

I'm not a Civ player. I know what I want to do, but not the proper mechanics for it.
No. 134700 ID: 7a1a17

Alright I'll tweak the 'template' post to be more descriptive.

I think it will be easier to leave those sorts of descriptions here so they don't get buried in updates. Though I may have to retcon that at some point. I've run civ games before but this is my first time with a homebrew system and the balance is kinda...broken. It's one of the reasons the civquest is taking longer to update as I'm looking at my mechanics and trying to decide how to properly scale it up.

Also I'm brainstorming an old quest idea I never ran because I'm insane

No. 134717 ID: 7a1a17

Okay so to address this
>what does industry do?
By itself? Nothing. It's essentially how many points of industry you generate per turn. Every structure costs a certain amount of industry(the cost changes the more improvements you build, soldiers you hire, towns you own, etc. I keep the value on my end because it keeps changing. The more things you have, the more the next project costs. That's not to say everything has the same base cost. So something simple like the trading post will cost more than what it takes to recover injured units, but less than upgrading the city.

>Is construction speed and max parallel construction limit influenced by Pops?
Actually population affects industry value. Assigning a population unit to an industrial improvement adds a bonus to your industry score. Unassigned pops are essentially idle and do nothing but generate small revenue by existing. Slave populations are worth double the amount of citizens but consume wealth rather than produce. Unless assigned to a wealth improvement. Idle slaves do nothing but consume wealth, but there are possible policies and improvements that make idle slave bonuses just as worthwhile as working them.

If you do parallel projects, your industry is divided evenly between all projects until the cost is met.

>What even is the current max parallel construction limit?
Effectively until you have enough improvements the industry is divided until 1 point is given to each project per turn.

>How does food work?
Every turn your citizen population is below the food produced, it grows by 1.

I feel that right in the middle of an update, 400+ updates after beginning the quest, is the most ideal timing for starting a discussion thread.

Seriously though it seems like I've been hemorrhaging readers lately. Which is something I'd really like to stop. I want to continue and eventually finish this quest but at a certain point that becomes impossible if there's nobody to actually read the goddamn thing. So, I really need some feedback. What am I doing right, what am I fucking up, what are things that I can do to not fuck up in the future? I can answer questions too if you have any.

I checked back here out of curiosity and it seems like someone bumped this thread. I don't know if anyone is still curious, but if you are, here's a status update.

The tech stuff went more or less according to schedule. I didn't finish what I intended to do, but I was progressing along at a good pace and I didn't hit a road block or anything. Still, it's clearly a losing proposition to try and make environments in CGI, since it takes too much time to prepare which nullifies any time savings down the road- I think it would be a smarter idea to switch the workflow and instead prepare the characters in advance and render them, while drawing the environments myself.

Anyway, problems with the tech stuff aren't why I haven't been updating the quest. I'm a very private person and I don't want to get into personal details but this has been an extremely difficult year for me, beginning from around February and going straight through to now. In all honesty the difficult circumstances have been going on for longer then that, although it progressed to a worse stage in February. I tried to write it off as time consuming 'hobbies' in one of the first posts in this thread. I'm not entirely sure why I did that except that I really don't want to depress people or involve them in my personal life... although it has the unintentional effect of making me look like a lazy, good for nothing asshole, instead of a stressed out asshole that's in a bad place. Anyway, that was responsible for a lot of the slow down last year, which progressed into a total stoppage this year.

I'm sorry for not coming back on here to give an update until now. I am still interested in continuing this, although it won't be for awhile yet. I still need to take care of a few things more before I can settle back into updating this. I think I'll also have to change my plans a little for the ques

Sorry to hear you've been going through a rough patch lately and hope it get's better soon. Just remember though that you should worry about yourself first and if life is kicking you in the groin don't feel bad for taking time to try and let things sort themselves out. While I wouldn't mind seeing this quest come back the idea of a quest is to be fun, for both YOU and the reader. So don't feel the need to force yourself to do something if you're not enjoying it.

Again though, glad to hear that you're alright even if things haven't been going to smoothly and hope that it clears up soon. The 3D looks great.

Oh, right, the bigger fish thing. Now that you mention it it’s all coming back. Never thought I’d have nostalgia for something I made myself.

I blame you guys for choosing illusion magic at the start and getting so influenced by… Chee quest I think it was? It was a Lagotrope quest at least… I think? Maybe? Either way, things would have been really different if you had chosen some other magic skills, for better or for worse, seeing as it did kind of work out in the end.

I still remember that I somehow managed to update it every three hours or so, which is completely bonkers. Nowadays it takes hours to just draw it, not to mention write it. Pixel art is really easy to just copy paste when you have all the assets done though, so I guess that might have helped a lot.

Lagotrope edit: To have a favicon added, I need author approval. Hence, the author of the respective quest must either post the favicon themselves or, if a favicon they like is already in the thread somewhere, refer to the favicon's post number and approve it. Either way, please supply the URL to the quest as well, thank you.

In short I need 3 things: author approval, the favicon, and the quest link.

This quest is my favourite on the site right now! I love how you are encouraged to learn the history and terminology of the setting through context as the story progresses!

One thing I haven't been able to quite figure out, though, since it's not touched upon much:
How do the Slissas fit within the society's caste system? What roles do they have and why do some of them live there?
No. 134691 ID: 8fab7a

They seem like diggers and mining engineers/experts. I believe it was said/implied somewhere that they are recent(-ish?) immigrants and that fewer toilers die in the mines ever since they arrived.

Most of that might be from ITQ answers, actually. Have you seen those?

Hello, little ones! Vikta tells me about another Secret Santa happening soon and I thought it would be fun to chaperone your fifth year! Sashi, Deemus, Vikta, Nummax, and Charu will help deliver all the gifts as I’m not good with remembering addresses from different dimensions and planets.

And so, here are the previous years of gift-giving:
(2016) https://questden.org/kusaba/questdis/res/106091.html
(2017) https://questden.org/kusaba/questdis/res/118595.html
(2018) https://questden.org/kusaba/questdis/res/126663.html
(2019) https://questden.org/kusaba/questdis/res/131539.html

You can participate in two ways:

For Quest Authors/Signing-Up
For authors, all you need to do is declare which of your quest characters will take part in this thread. Include their name and a link to the quest or wiki page. A picture is helpful as well. If posting multiple characters, you must state whether they’re a GROUP or INDIVIDUALS. Once we reach an appointed date, everyone will be randomly assigned their partner.

Okay now, this part is important! Read carefully! Once a match is made it is your job to write and illustrate what your character would give to their special someone! Perhaps something from their world. Or something personal! Or a book! Fancy gadgets! Leftovers! You’re not obligated to have your character respond to a gift received. But the process of your character finding their partner’s gift is the least bit expected. One picture, ten pictures, animated; doesn’t matter as long as you don’t tire yourselves out! Posting early or late is no problem, either!

My advice to the raiders: Finish off the weakened guard detachment while allowing Lung the glory of pursuing Chinzebeth. Join him after you have secured your flank.
No. 134698 ID: e2dc7c

Peppering the royal guards in Lung's way is a good idea, wearing them down a little so that by the time Lung gets to them he hits them like a wrecking ball. It also provides the fastest route up to Chinzebeth and victory.

For, as one could guess, discussing Fen Quest.

Some of you may know that Fen Quest was an intermission for Chee Quest. This may be a reboot, but other than that, it will have nothing to do with Cheelop. It will not even be part of the same universe, so the rules of cheeverse (what rules there were) will not apply.

To elaborate this, which requires heavy CheeQuest spoilers, Cheequest steamrolled into Fenquest near its ending, crushing any sort of proper ending. It was most likely my biggest mistake questing, and did play into my deciding to reboot it. Secondly, the reason why it doesn't take place in cheeverse is a matter of constraints. At the end of Cheequest, her world was effectively rebooted, promised by the gods to have it play out approximately the same, with the promise of Fen and Lily living happily ever after and so on. I'd rather not have that promise, among other things people could safely make assumptions about. Nor do I want to just redo it as-is while still in the chaos god's dream, if just because the looming threat of Chee inevitably crashing into Fen's life isn't something I want even if it occurred after the end.

I would much rather start on a clean slate.

Damn, it was way closer for Aura. I wonder what would happened if Fen had die. Moss would have been the new MC? We really should take less risks.
No. 134686 ID: a9af05

Now I'm wondering about something. If Fen is ordered to go over to Roc Underpass/Checkpoint, is there a possibility that he'll meet up with Cheese while she's there waiting for Moss?
No. 134688 ID: f39ded

I mean, that would be metagaming, so unless we somehow get information about his situation, then yeah, i guess we could intervene. It also depends on what and how Fens finds out. If they get the tip that there are necromancers inside the empire territory in some gold noble's mines, then yeah, they would probably do something about it, if they are close to the mausoleum. If not, i doubt that they would let Fen go there for no reason, even more so if he goes for personal reasons that have nothing to do with the campaign.
No. 134693 ID: a9af05

Right, that's what I meant. Fen coincidentally runs into Cheese there, she tells him about the mine with undead in it, and he reports to Zall. And if Zall thinks it's important enough, he'll send Fen and a few others to deal with it.
No. 134695 ID: f39ded

We can only hope then.

wtf, Siobhan is wearing clothes? teegee pulls a fast one on us again -_-

>It usually doesn't kill
Hmm, could these types of weapons be what Vespers were using as well? I'm not sure, since the one Siobhan uses looks more sophisticated with a holo cross sight and all. The canisters do look similar tho.

>I don't think I could forget it
Alas, even if told Penny about it, she already knows Mike's h-mail from all the ads that she's seen.

>more like a zipper, or a cord running through something? Could be anything, though.
It would seem that it was a door hacking job.

>I'm sure the only reason he was cagey last night was because of that client he doesn't wanna talk about.
I mean, Mike did say it was because of a client.

Some people are talking about the glyphs having weird effects on people. It has been explicitly stated that they exploit a vulnerability that only exists in people who've suffered taffa syndrome, and no such glyphs can be produced to affect most people.
No. 134527 ID: 1a4760

>The figure doesn't give any visible reaction
Perhaps this is because they already expected as much. If they were expecting Penny, it implies they knew... that she was hiding there, in the closet with her gun. So it's likely that those eyes were some sort of a detection tool. If true, it would be quite surprising. And useful.

It also makes me wonder how these eyes, which are some sort of a hologram and/or a dust mod, are related to the natural vertical eyes of the animals that we've seen.

This info may come in handy in the future if Penny's in a situation where she wouldn't want her voice to be recognized. Which is funny because she already revealed her voice in the global chat room. Well, it's highly questionable whether she'd be able to use such a mod in that virtual place anyway, besides, the main problem was in revealing her location, not the sound of her voice.

>a client's representative
While Mike may have plenty of different clients, due to the current circumstances, I think it's highly likely that the client in question is the one that provided Penny's current body. Sending a representative like this over, it also seems this client is quite a big shot.

Still, this is good. It confirms that Siobhan's not in any danger. I mean, if the client wanted to get rid of Siobhan, they could've easily done it already. So clearly there's some other agenda that they have.

Such a lean body... and those clothes! Based on the amount of exposed skin, the set must have a pretty good defense rating.

>I wasn't fucking bluffing.
To shoot a person just to prove that you're not bluffing, how cruel! I mean, Siobhan was told to try and keep this person there but, to shoot them for it... it takes quite a trigger-happy person haha.

I was expecting Siobhan to be a lot more indecisive on the choice considering there was no suggester consensus.

>the intruder throws a handful of powder into the air
Pocket sand! Hmm, the distortion wave doesn't seem to travel very fast if a person is able to react to it to this degree.

>they must have jumped!
It doesn't matter what they did. What matters is that shooting was a wrong decision since it didn't accomplish anything.

>ready to fire some chasing shots at them...
Trigger-happy indeed. Remember, the point of shooting them was to disable them so they couldn't leave, not to fend them off. So what would be the point of such chasing shots after they left?

>but I don't see them anywhere
Nothing to see here except some inconspicuous owls.

>Just what did they "deliver" to the apartment, against Mike's wishes?
One way to find out!
