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.

Jeez, the response to the last update were super in depth. I just finished story boarding them. Thanks for the engagement! Now I just gotta start drawing it out lol.

There any questions mechanics wise by the way? As I'm going along, I thought of some improvements to the system I could make, in particular towards spells. I'll ask about this again after chapter 1 is done, not going to change anything now.
No. 142024 ID: 2f41db

I think in terms of systems it seems all fine.

Considering things, the only area im a little blank on would be the casting.
Namely how many times. Id it a set amount on daily refresh or a loosely defined capacity that can be stretched at the cost of inducing fatigue and associated debuffs?
How closely does it hew to PF rules?
Stringently or adopting the general shape of it in regard to spell levels, casting types and domains of power?

All of the above is for my own clarification.
As i said, the systems work and are serving the story well. No adjustment necessary.
No. 142029 ID: a671e8

I like the magic so far. We got a lot of use out of simple illusion spells.

The scroll of paralyzation only working on humanoids is odd. I guess you are planing to have a big monster that could be cheesed with paralyzes.

I'm a bit concern with the "cognitohazard" mechanic. I've see this getting abused and ending up very stupid in SCP articles.
The concept work best when it's a immutable true of the universe that goes against normal sanity. A more realistic version is the "forbidden knowledge" that is more cultural dependent and hard to talk about in the abstract (if you ever came across one of those you know).
In this case it seem to be the influence of deities over mortals, that's fine as long as the gods are not too human in behavior. I guess it's a literal "when you stare into the abyss the abyss stares back" kind of deal: the gods react to be contacted by the mortal observing their symbols.
No. 142031 ID: 3e4664

At the moment, it's only adopting the general shape of the Pathfinder 1e ruleset. I wasn't sure when starting the quest if it would be too complicated or not for readers, since 1e is fairly complex. So I wanted to make things a lot simpler. But I think I was probably being a little to careful, I'll probably be slowly adding complexity as things go on that follow a little more in line with Pathfinder.

I kinda like making a system up as I go along though, so I don't think it's ever going to be 1 to 1 Pathfinder.

The scroll of paralyzation I probably should've just let you use on anyone. It's a Pathfinder holdover of "Hold Person", which can only be used on humanoid typed creatures.

As for the whole cognitohazard thing. Honestly, when I first started I had no idea what that was lol. I can't really go to much into what I plan on doing with things, but I'm going to try to not punish or negatively affect the main character for you all just talking about things. As things go on, I'm hoping stuff will be understood more. I love seeing theories on what's going on, and it kinda makes me think sometimes if those theories were actually the case.

So yeah, while I'm taking a break from Tharsianing (and lining up plot elements for it), I'd figure I'll resurrect an old quest that I abandoned on 4chan due to IP shenanigans.

Some stuff that I should mention:
>This will start out as a redo of the 4chan quest (since it only went two threads), while still keeping the tone and feel.
>This quest will take place in the Primordial universe; albeit a different time from the Primordial games. For more info:
>New players can choose to ignore the tl;dr and just play! I intend to seep in bits of lore while the quest progresses anyways.
>Old players and those who were in Primordial: if you see any disrepancies etc, feel free to call me out in this discussion thread!

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

Hey guys, I was thinking of the tale of Red Fang's death Mr. Lollipop told us and how he capitalizes certain words to emphasize certain divinity "My teachings" instead of "my teachings" and the like.
Namely, the mention that he foresaw one of "Us" would set in motions the wheels of his death. However, the only one who caused his death was Muschio Malto and his decision to take on Red Fang's dungeon. This either implies that a totemic deity somehow influenced Malto into killing red fang or... We are somehow a form of totemic deity.
Which might be why he seems to be communicating with us directly and why only we are able to see past his illusions.

Now this might be a crackpot theory but if totem deities seem live and and die off devotion, doesn't that theoretically mean a totem deity can be born from devotion? Say a lineage of kings who help their people and leave behind their name and the "totem" of a banner. Perhaps one with a Big M emblazoned on the front? A king who frequently helps species that are accustomed to worshiping a totem deity and even has has holidays amongst these people.
Say one or two generations of worship of this king and his descendants, of the Big M and perhaps the devotion might end up crystalizing and becoming something. Perhaps becoming a guiding force for those most directly involved in the Malto's family lineage, or even manifesting within it's heir.

That'd be pretty crazy though, right?

Im still of the opinion mr lollipop is in the ally category.

Hes difficult to read as, for the most part, he is a creature that is more akin to water than anything else.
Shaped by the faith he is fed, he goes with the flow.
Powerful but paradoxically without power over self.
Perhaps too alien of thought to even be bothered by such things.
Thougn he does have one very understandable goal.

He does have a fundemental drive to be of use. To fit the purpose of the shape of the peoples belief.
That may be more similar to a mortal drive to be well fed than any urge for purpose.
If he is of no use to the people of the forest, then their belief in him wanes.
As we saw, when it fades he becomes less well defined in their minds and his own.
Once there isnt enough of a shape left for him to cling to, he'd just wash away.

As much as i began to pity him for what his situation appears to imply, namely a very limited degree of self determination, i do still wonder if im anthropomorphising a truly alien mindset.

Okay, time for ideas! I'll start by assuming that, since the robots built their civilization on a planet full of life, they make use of organic components in some of their systems.

Now here I go! Let's see how many answers I can come up with.

The original robots were programmed with sexual feelings by their creators, as a precaution against a rogue AI singularity. They're attracted to certain body types so they won't go too crazy with self-upgrading and their evolving programs will remain at least somewhat relatable if they ever meet their makers.

Physical contact is a sort of system diagnostic routine for their biological (or bio-mimetic) parts. They touch and grope each other to to confirm that their tactile sensors and connected systems are still functional, until their instinctive subroutines give them an "all good" feeling. They are designed with a desire to do this that gradually grows the longer they wait between tests, to make sure their organs don't become numb, atrophied, or otherwise nonfunctional.

The robots' primary sex organs collect genetic and hormonal data markers from their other organs, which can be extracted and analyzed as a way to measure their general health. Male organs send their data in a chemical medium, while females produce eggs with a similar function.

Female sex organs can be used to grow new organic parts. They can replicate any organs included in their own design, and males have the genomes for their own components, which they can deliver to a female for reproduction and later installation. They were designed this way to make it easier for the population to support itself without needing the infrastructure to grow organs in mass quantities. They've calculated

I meant to say "milk" here. I was thinking about cyberboobs. The females collect biodata in their chests and store it with synthesized biofuel.

Just a small heads up, but due to real life circumstances I'll be away for all of April. I *may* squeeze an update in there during that time, but I wouldn't count on it. I've primarily been occupied with a combination of game development and other work, but I don't have any plans of stopping LT anytime soon either, so don't worry.

Now this, this is how to run a Neutral character that has to deal in murder.

Evil characters don't have to give any f'ks, or look like they do.

Good characters should feel at least uncomfortable with it, but would often weigh it along the lines of a greater Good.

Neutral characters have no such comfort, so would deal with it like an average person would. Props to the QM for showing that.

A Sci-Fi Mystery Quest about Ethics, Loss and Finding Oneself

Definitely a very interesting read! I'll tell you right now that you're definitely going off a much more hard-sci-fi approach than I'm using, so that might lead you astray in solving the mystery.

But I do genuinely appreciate the amount of thought you put into it. I suppose it means the mystery is compelling!

Well, that's kind of my thing. Does it at least inform some of the language or concerns that need to be addressed, and does it not limit or mess with you too much?

I mean even hard sci fi has a few allowances for unscientific stuff, as a concession to, 'yea, without this, no story would happen' sorts of things.
No. 141898 ID: 225d23

Well I think the best most honest way I can put this is: I threw the mystery together over a fairly short amount of time and while there is some wiggle room here and there, the basic shape of it is what it is and while the technical theorycrafting is very entertaining, you shouldn't expect the answers to adhere too close to scientific viability and rather trust the clues given in the quest.
Because my knowledge of astrophysics and whatnot is simply fairly limited and I cannot spare the time to do the sort of research a novelist might.

'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.

Geez, I’ve forgotten to answer these.

>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.
There’s a reason why it says “as told by Pesi the Skull” at the start, just saying :V

>If I may, can I know the reason why the main NSFW quest is on break?
At the start, I just felt like working on something else. Recently it was because I wanted to finish Passage first. Right now I’m actually planning on updating it again soon, though I might do a few more updates to Scion and Leaves first.
>Maybe it's just me, but maybe you should bite the bullet and start a new thread for it.
Wait, are you talking about the main LL quest or just the quest discussion thread? If the former, the current thread is almost done, I just need to find the drive to finish it off. If it is the second, the whole reason why I merged all the dis threads was because they barely saw any use in the first place and I didn’t want to clog down the dis page too much. Might be prudent to split it into themes, though. One for the lewd vore fantasy, one for the lewd space stuff and one for the non-lewd stuff. I’ll consider it.

>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?
They are already themed by seasons, just not the four we’re used to. Instead, they are based on the three seasons used by ancient Egypt, with Volek being Emergence (When the ground is fertile and the seeds are planted), Ptamet being Harvest (self-explanatory) and finally Wjares being Inudation (When the Nile floods the plains and destroy everything in its path, but leaving fertile s

'S OK. It's not like I'm fast to form replies, either. The relevant bit of Egyptian trivia IS appreciated.

>are you talking about the main LL quest or just the quest discussion thread?
It's the latter, and I do think you can pick up where you left off. To be honest, though, I was hoping for a place to discuss possible fetishes without it being weird, as well as a repository for possibly lewd fan art.
Flockload has great fanart. I'm just saying, Lord Triti.

>Talos will take the domains that his worshipers bestow upon him. Pesi even tried to suggest rebirth, but the suggesters chose being diplomatic instead.
Everyone wants the harem route, but tis' a path one must really, really, really, really, REALLY commit to. I guess that makes Talos a god of Love and Passion? Technically, that means we have to empathize with Neferi's perspective, assuming we can convince her to not walk over us (unless we want to) and make a convert out of her. She does seem to have a Predator mentality, after all. If Sebak has Prey mentality, they'd almost be a perfect match.

>the next one will probably not be based on Fire Emblem.
Disappointed we won't have characters sharing rings with each other to connect with the spirits/AI of past heroes. But seriously, I meant something like bonuses (or penalties) with certain characters working together. I do like having my characters bond and develop into closer relationships with each other. The power of shipping compells me.

Just to geek out for a moment, the "tarot" was originally a playing card game, but it wasn't poker. It was a game in Italy in the 14th century with rules similar to Bridge, and Mamluk cards from Turkey. The very artsy cards commissioned by Italian aristocracy did quickly inspire people to use them for storytelling purposes, in a game known as “tarocchi appropriati,” where they would draw random cards, and write poetry about the other players, based on what they drew. Eventually that morphed into the fortune telling we know today.

Welcome all couples and singles to the first annual Dance Day fifth annual Questden Romance Festival! Where all Questden characters could have the chance to find true love (if they’re lucky), and for characters that are already in relationships, they might just have the date of their lives!

Just like the previous years, draw your quest characters looking to mingle with another participating quest character looking for love. Woo and flirt to test the waters: will the duo be compatible, or will it fail spectacularly? Singletons are also welcome, as are established couples on a date.

Also, whether you’re a quest author or a suggestor, here’s the place to draw or write a valentine to send to your favorite quest character! Who knows, they might even react (or write back)!

This is both the main character and a support character, so Coordinator would be best fit for a secondary class to opt into.
Nothing else really fits unless you go Wizard for the armour passive and not cast of its spells to save on AP (outside of emergencies)... but it's both not anywhere as good as Coordinator's bonuses and you can't trust the players to conserve AP.

Being a discussion thread...
I was expecting this secondary ability list to be different from the primary list, focusing more on bonuses that would synergise with the selected primary class and be more 'secondary' in nature. Choices kindaaa feel limited, and we're all agreeing on the same one... but may we be looking at it from the wrong perspective? Hm
No. 141776 ID: ee5fa2

well, the class system is just picking two classes from the class list and getting access to the abilities of both. The Primary just lets you pick an ability from the class' list at the start. Kosroh's starting ability from Apothecary is the Healing Salve ability
No. 141777 ID: ee5fa2

Additionally, as a character levels up, they'll be able to gain additional abilities from both classes

Coordinator synergize but he will be very limited if left alone or with uncooperative company. I we get a guarantee obedient animal companion that can be healed I would prefer Dragoon or Hunter.
