Slinko (and others who have taken the plunge), any advice on adding extra media to quests, like animations or minigames?
No. 140890 ID: 4562ef

Don't make it too complicated. The number of assets you'll need can pile up VERY quickly, especially if you do a game with animations. Have a well-defined goal, a purpose that you want to achieve with it, for example "character bouncing around a room with physics because it's funny." Once you have made that happen, then you can think about adding things onto it.
No. 141021 ID: 87e33c

Yeah, would reccomend incredibly small scopes per project, stuff like:

> Just a guy moving around and talking to people with text and simple character/environment art

Is actually a lot for most people even just using premade assets and software. Not to mention the writing and art assets also required to make it work. Not to mention most people feel it's a requirement to add talksprites so that's basically doubling the artistic work required.

Keep it simple, and if you consistently make more projects, then add like one new thing that you felt you needed to the next one.

At least, that's how I'd suggest handling it if you wanted to produce something reusable or long term for a project while working solo.

If so, I might have made a mistake. Sorry.

You're only able to delete posts you know the password to. A password is auto-generated and automatically filled in for your posts.

So if you're worried that you deleted someone's post, don't stress about it. Unless you managed to delete some spam then hell yeah!

A lot of discussion's come up in the latest DiveQuest chapter so I wanted to clarify some things here without diverting the action of the thread itself.

This whole reorganizational thing, facilitated by the character of Ashedel, is not really a retcon of anything, just a reorganization.
I mentioned that I was so frustrated by and not at all enjoying Divequest that I was on the verge of just outright canceling it, but instead I made some big changes to its overall theme and drive, and one of my biggest changes is ripping out all the micromanagement. That wasn't fun and several people told me they weren't able to keep up with the quest solely because of the bloated inventories and mana management, and I was inclined to agree. Simple is better.
Other changes include the way puzzles are handled, the general focus and scale, social interactions between the characters, and so on.
Mostly, as you can probably tell by now, DiveQuest is supposed to be pretty over the top and tongue-in-cheek, and I wanted to change the flow of the quest to better fit that. As it was, the puzzles and pacing too closely matched RubyQuest, which didn't really work for Dive.

Major changes include more focus on the characters, more dynamic puzzles, more agency on the part of the players, more of an over-the-top aesthetic, a generally smaller scale in terms of Muschio's minions (so that each of them can have their own personality), less stuff that takes itself too seriously, and so on. You get the basic idea.
The goal here is to make it more accessible, fast-paced, entertaining, somewhat silly, and open for new players.

That doesn't mean this is going to turn into a Harem quest or that there's not going to be more profuse amounts of violence, nor that everything will be RANDOM AND WACKY, nor that there will be no serious moments interspersed.
Just that the previous incarnation of DiveQuest was t

I followed the Dive Quest from the moment it came back and started to participate in the quest but as the quest kept going my way of interacting with it changed. I started to post more and more unhinged stuff, and to be honest not even I know why I started to interact that way with the quest. It is probably the feeling of being the invisible presence in the quest so I embraced it. Practically posted whatever I felt like posting and I did it not to feel like a main character in the quest but more to roleplay as a murder hobo who can't murder anybody. But as a friend told me my enjoyment of the quest became an annoyance to others and I practically acted like a cracked-out hobo who was yelling at the sky like a madman. So I will stop posting in this quest. Good luck Weaver with the quest.

for the pacifist route you could have gotten another minor legal concession if you hadn't tried to resolve the vania vaporeon situation, which is a short term/long term hand off since none of the long term impact of the legal stuff can really be shown in quest.

honestly from my point of view it was pretty ideal, being friends with unethical rich people like scott is worth it because money and helping vaporeon was a good thing to do because preventing exploitation.

the quest is over and it's up to you to interpret what would happen to flygon and his work for pokemon rights years in the future based on the info in the quest.

>he and Harbard Grim were my friends for some time and their decision was what won in the end.
So it was nepotism that won that one. Seriously though, was unaware of Harbard Grim getting involved so that does feel less out of nowhere.
>As for the poison gas not working, true it failed but at the same time you got something out of it Orbital was introduced and you even got a chance of getting him as your ally.
Just to be clear that was not supposed to be a negative on your side. Even the best plans can go sideways so it was a positive. Supposed to be because strategic skills can always be improved. Just tend to focus on where things can be improved even if my side wins. Focusing on success gives overconfidence. Which rage learned himself as he was overconfident with his shield's defenses.

>"When the knife was properly hidden that is when I started to threaten him that the knife was still inside his body and that I could make it corporeal which would kill him instantly."
Still feels off given we earlier poked obvious holes in his idea of it all being an illusion which just convinced him it was a mass illusion so he really seemed to believe he was fooled. Just feels odd that threats and dissipated gas broke that while obvious holes failed. Guess he was just blustering?

The origins of the Demi-god Triplets, as told by Pesi the Skull

In the beginning, the world was but an empty void. No earth or sky, not day or night, not even the very concept of nothing existed. No, there was only one thing that where and always was, a god and goddess whose name has been lost since time immemorial, the god of gods and birthmother of all. We know them as He who seeds, She who birth, the father and mother of all things.

Thus he seeded the world and she gave birth to it, creating the very plane we walk upon, and from his loins the gods sprang forth while from her breath they were given life! Soon, she had given birth to hundreds of thousands of gods, the greatest of which was her firstborn, a goddess whose original name has long been forgotten, but we know her today as Agnieszka, the goddess of purity.

But all was not well in the garden of the gods, as when He who seeds, She who births created the mortals species some of the other gods saw it as an abomination to be purged. Mortality was, after all, the very state that’s the antithesis of the immortal god, and thus disgusted many gods for even existing.

It is not known who struck first or even which god fought for which cause, but in the end there was a war more magnificent than anything else this world has ever witnesses! All we know is near the beginning of the war Agnieszka herself struck down her mother and father, the gods of gods, and forced them into a deep slumber, an endless slumber He who seeds, She who births is still chained in. An uncountable amount of gods perished and was lost to history forever before the war came to an end with no clear winner. Instead, they came to a compromise, to exile the mortals from the garden of gods and relocate them to the newly created mortal realm, far from the gods themselves.

But, not long before said cease fire was reached there was a duel of great importance, as the goddess of strife and the god of growth were battling above the mortal realm. Their battle lasted for 14 eons, each of their moves shaping the world around them, creating mountains and seas as their bodies smashed into it. But in the end Strife won, as she cleaved the god of growth into three parts, which fell unto the mortal world. His body became the greatest of the mountain ranges, his blood became the Grand River where our ancestors’ kingdom still stands and finally, his essence…

File 167978263109.png - (55.48KB , 700x550 , Begining3.png )

It too was cleaved in three and fell onto the mortal realm, each landing and becoming one with different mortal creation. The first fell upon a river, an ever changing stream bringing the lifeblood to the land, and from it emerged the demi god of Change and Cultivation, Ptamet. The second fell upon a field, fertile and full of animal life, and thus became the demi god of fertility and family, Volek. And finally, the third essence was consumed by a forest fire, which never ending hunger and destructive ways gave birth to the demi god of War and Vore, Wjares!

In the end, it is from their blood we, the Volin, was given life… and thus we must pay them our respect and offer them sacrifices regularly. So build that damn Shrine already, Sebak! -Pesi

Cool lore.

Imagine if, rather than having this being an accurate record of the time before mortals, each race had their own version of the creation myth associated to their sense of being or identity. (Much like how such myths work historically.) Everyone more or less agrees about the proto-god/goddess (except you-know-who), but Zootopia logic suggests whether Strife or Growth "won" their battle is a heated topic between Predator and Prey.

For all the time that Lascivious Labyrinth has been living in my head rent-free, I really haven't been putting my ideas here to work, or at least a prospective job interview.* Maybe it's just me, but maybe you should bite the bullet and start a new thread for it. It'd be a better place for weird fetishes fan art, amateur fanfiction worldbuilding, and backseat quest-mastering critiques. It's working wonders for the other bird quest.

If I may, can I know the reason why the main NSFW quest is on break? I'll understand if it's IRL reasons, but if I were to guess: Did you just want to go back to basics and focus on the side quest? (If so, I agree is the right call.) Did we brick the campaign? (There are ways to salvage it: sacrifice Sebak to foil her plans, and/or create an avatar of Talos instead.) Were you afraid to write the loss a character? Was the Fear and Loathing reference too much?

*Here's a few:
- The gods are seasons, Ptamet is Fall, Wjares is Winter, Volek is Spring (obviously), that makes Talos Summer. Wouldn't Talos make a nice summer god?
- Give Talos the Rebirth/Respawn domain, even if you have to trade his own fertility for it. Worth it to allow us to set respawn points in interesting places. Like his womb.
- Crib less from Civilization, more from Fire Emblem. I guarantee it'd exercise the same mental muscles LL Thread 1 did.

Oh yeah, I think it was mine too. Though, in all seriousness, I don't think it's fair ask the author pick it back up when they would've moved on by now, personally and/or artistically. I think I see the similar concepts being worked in with this quest, anyway. And the work ethic has been much improved.

Anyway, I like the current guy. Among other things, he's, like, juggling 3 different love interests, unintentionally. My pet theory is he's being groomed to be his Lord's successor, is in denial over it because of what it implies (why does an immortal being need a successor?), but everyone either knows or could make an accurate guess of that.

Oh I doubt anyone was saying Cirr should stop what he’s doing and immediately revive any of his old quest, just remembering some of his past quests that stuck with them over the years.

>Anyway, I like the current guy. Among other things, he's, like, juggling 3 different love interests, unintentionally. My pet theory is he's being groomed to be his Lord's successor, is in denial over it because of what it implies (why does an immortal being need a successor?), but everyone either knows or could make an accurate guess of that.

As for this, my personal theory is our little bird is actually a shapeless lord youth that is being raised in secret for some reason only the lord of secrets knows. That’s why they also seem to get special treatment over their peers. I have no evidence to back this up but it’s what my gut is telling me.

Pesi: “Quickly! While your owner is distracted we have a chance for you to escape!” the Volin whispers to the wolf, “Into the dark woods!”
Ulric: “Huh? The woods?” Ulric ask slightly confused, not expecting the lizard / fish creature to suddenly start shoving him towards the forest.
Pesi: “We’ll be alone in there… and hidden.” she answers quietly, “That way I can find out how that carrot has enslaved you.” As she continues to gently push the wolf forward, she sniff his neck, “I don’t smell any magic, so it might be enough to just give you a way out. Somewhere for you to run too.”
Ulric: “…she doesn’t actually-” but before Ulric can clarify, Pesi interrupts him.
Pesi: “And then we can celebrate your newfound freedom with unprotected premarital sex.” She stops in her track and blink twice, “I… I’m unsure why I phrased it like that…” but then she shakes her head and continues towards the forest edge, “No matter, let’s go before someone spots us leaving.”

And into the dark, foreboding woods the pair disappears… all alone and vulnerable.

'Because nothing says quality like a 16x16 image!' - Cirr, as paraphrased by Lago as best as he could remember it after, instead of adding the following edit, he completely overwrote the whole post with it.

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.

2023 Lagotrope edit: When a favicon needs to be added to its respective thread, I (Lagotrope) can be pinged on the questden discord.

I love this quest so far!! Could you confirm what pronouns everyone uses, for reference?
No. 141129 ID: 527a46

yes, no worries! most everybody is playing really fast and loose with them, so it's easy to get confused lol.

CALLIST0 - she/her
jupiter - any, lightly favors he/him + she/her
rama - he/they
europa - she/her
io - literally does not care at all, defaults to she/her out of laziness
lament - they/he/it
iridescent wound (yeah okay it only got Mentioned but why not) - it/its, sniffing around curiously and malevolently at she/her

when new characters are introduced i can pop their pronouns in here as an easy ref point (and now that i think of it it'd probably be good to tuck it in as spoilered authors notes in-thread too)! but in general don't stress about it too bad, a bunch of characters will be using like 2-3+ sets of pronouns interchangeably and slip-ups + typos will happen! as long as ur doing ur best to mirror what's being used in canon posts you're doing dandy

also fun fact everyone introduced so far except for europa is some flavor of lesbian. i don't expect that to be clear from the text thus far lol it's just a thing that is ambiently true

Now I'm super glad I reread it recently!

The Good Bits
Ok, for me, the mystery at the beginning, with Penny having no idea who she is or why (and the incongruity of "we're all humans") was excellent. Heck, the shelves, the Vespers, the weird stuff with dust -- all of it was this amazing thing to tease apart and try to make sense of it.

Our first introduction to Cider and Penny's reluctance to stay even works out rather well, despite seeming to be self-destructive, because when you think about it, she HAS no other template save her independence, and suddenly that's been taken away from her (even if it's "Help help, they gave me friendship and free clothes," from Penny's end).

That, and Roz is hilarious and I love her banter with the rest of the cast.

The Iffy Parts
Even the sexual aspects weren't too bad, though I'm still trying to figure out how the whole inner-mindscape thing with Dollar our alter-ego and the other "Blades" or whatever was supposed to work, and why, since it never quite gets explained.

Once we get to Chapter -1, it really does take away almost all of the mystery of the situation, despite raising the other one: who is this shadowy organization, why do they care about Siobhan's body, and, for that matter why does she have it?

I half expected chapter -1 to end with the protagonist running into the protagonist from chapter 0/1 and they aren't even the same person. OR ARE THEY

What originally got my attention, and consequently made me decide to participate in the quest were two things.
- Cute character
- Nsfw hologram ...hehe
Yeah, it was the art. That was the biggest first impression. The art quality in the later updates has been an overkill.

What kept my interest were three things:
- Interactivity, which has always been great; each update was able to include many suggestions in meaningful ways, but not too many to hurt the pacing/immersion
- The rich world, with almost endless amount of unique concepts, locations, details, and again, without delving into them too far, perhaps luckily, since there's an entity limit before the whole thing becomes confusing / hard to follow for an average forgetful reader
- Frequent updates, keeping the interest high and memory fresh... well, until you burned out.

On the topic of writing, I should say that sometimes there's too much text per panel. And it feels too refined, like you spent way too much time perfecting it. We can deal with a few typos, you know.

I can't say there's anything that I straight up disliked. What I generally dislike is unrealistic things. Unlikely events happening too often. Characters knowing things they shouldn't know. Having inconsistent personality. But I haven't noticed anything of that sort in the quest. Nothing unrealistic happened. The NSFW parts were very realistic in fact, for a world where there's no fear of disease or pregnancy. Everything has a well-defined purpose. I see no need for a retcon, because I don't see any problem that it would fix.

Discuss & ask questions about the quest here!

Also submit custom items/weapons you would want to possibly appear in the story here. Either for Vex to use, find, or sell.

Ex. Plasma Gun (.5LB), a highly advanced tech plasma-based handgun, 12 shots per cartridge.

Items can have other attributes and magical qualities. DND 5e is my general ref for items. But the world is your oyster etc etc.
