    We are deeply sorry for you loss. But you might as well make the best of your current situation.

    You may not be able to move or communicate, but that doesn't mean you need to be bored for an eternity. You still have all your senses to observe your surroundings, and you still have your mind to think about things.

    Well, you're a smart guy, I'm sure you'll figure it all out.

    Oh, if only it were that easy.

    Unfortunately you were a... less-than-good person in life. So some of your enemies made certain that after you died, you cannot ever pass on. I suppose you could call this karma for a life full of ill deeds. Your consciousness is trapped inside your body (which is technically now just a skull), for all eternity.

    You've spent the last few centuries trying to figure a way out of this predicament, but it's just not happening. But hey, it's not that bad though, you get used to it after a while.

    I'm way ahead of you on that one, brother.

    At first you were disgusted by wriggling and squirming feeling that emanated throughout your decomposing body, as countless slimy things feasted on you. But soon you came to not only accept, but enjoy the company. As your body shrunk and liquified, you slowly realized that you were starting to miss your saprotrophic friends. Now that you have been gnawed down to polished bone, you only attract the occasional nibble, but you are always sure to cherish the feeling as though it were a careful massage.

    Ah, yes.

    It's a bit unpleasant, but you've come to terms with it. You were actually in Javikre when it happened. You had fled after your army was defeated in Arnongol two years prior and were in hiding at a small inn. You had done everything you could to not draw attention to yourself, and assumed that they would never find you there. But, they burst into the room while you were bathing and tied you up. Ultimately it was some minor governor who caught you and punished you for allowing your men to defile his daughters, burning his lands, tearing down his temples. You know the drill.

    He had hired a priest to perform this weird ritual on you before you were killed, and voila. Eternal non-death. Your body was thrown into a garbage pit and has been through all sorts of misadventures since.

    Some of your abilities:

    You are by the river in the pit-city of Landnam. You are half-buried in the road along with all sort of other refuse. Some important sights are a river, some homes carved into the sheer rock-face, some tents, a three-story inn, and lots of people. It is mid-day.

    You hear some intense arguing standing out in the hustle and bustle of the street, and the soothing sound of the river.

    Dirt. You barely even notice it any more. But over the centuries, you've come to be quite the connoisseur of dirt. You prefer thick peat to this dusty concoction.

    The dirt, some wind, a reasonably cool day, vibrations from people's feet, a woman's foot accidentally stepping on your head.

    All sorts of great smells. Freshly baked bread, body odor, dust, hooker perfume, wine.

    They are not. The ground here is quite trodden and bleak. And even if it wasn't, The Pit only gets a little sunlight, so it's not conducive to growing things.

    I don't think so. You don't have any kind of magically dead-people powers that allow you to communicate with other dead people. Oh wait... you do kind of have some magical dead people powers. Your senses are better than the average persons. Since they aren't attached to your non-existent brain or body anymore they are more like some kind of... magical hearing or something. I dunno. But it's not that powerful, so don't get your hopes up.

    So, once we've got our basic mechanical setup, we'll need to decide what sort of parameters there are; we can always add more objects, so let's start small. I'm thinking spherical; stay with the familiar and all that, and we'll work with about 100 of them to start with to get all the calculations figured out in terms of how they'll interact. We're operating off of an infinate space, so some sort of effect that brings the objects back together seems sound. Other suggestions?

    Eh, not a whole lot. Or anything. Maybe some priest might be able to do something or... something. I dunno. But since you have no way of communicating, it would be tough. You've more or less given up hope of ever becoming close to normal again.

    Or, I mean, if you haven't given up hope, I have.

    Well that goes without saying, you have nothing else to do. But in the mean time you need to keep yourself entertained. In the past few centuries you've enjoyed watching the stories of the people around you unravel. You wouldn't believe the kinds of things happen when you're just a fly on the wall. Or a skull in the ground.

    Naw, it's been a pretty long time. Words in some old language, and animal sacrifices, and carving words into your flesh. Boring typical ritual stuff. That governor guy, for his part, just kept yelling and berating you, even after your death, while you were being dragged to the garbage. He talked about how you deserved this, his daughters, about how it was justice and blah blah blah. Some people just won't let shit go.

    Well... I dunno. I thought this would feel better somehow.

    Oh, don't get me started. Flosi, Hetur's daughter, used to walk around barefoot. And once, she stepped on your head and she actually stopped to examine you. And - get this - she gently and carefully poked the top of your head with her toe while looking right at you. Oh, she is so perfect and beautiful. An angel. The way Hetur treats her is terrible.

But without any way to write them down... and without any knowledge of basic literary structure, they were all doomed to failure. You still remember the title of one of them though:

    "THE MAN WHO SURPASSED ALL OTHER GODS AND KINGS: The Grand Epic of the Assent, Fall, and redemption of Geyr the God-King of the land of Mojur"

    The next time you try coming up with this, you'll try to shorten the title.

    You don't exactly know anything about "demons". There are lesser gods and minor local gods. Let's see... a boulder-city you razed to the ground had a minor impish death god once. Before you melted down it's sacred statues for the silver and enslaved it's priests you took note of the god's name, because it was so silly-sounding: Koioukoi. Okay, let's try praying to this "demon".

    Oh, great Koioukoi! Although your puny people crumbled under the might of my army, and although you are only a tiny, insignificant god, whom some would say is not worthy of worship by such a great God-King, we beseech you! Grant us a contract with your infernal masters! Our soul is yours if you can only ease our current suffering!

    I have an idea to keep us entertained in the interim period between now and when we're picked up or noticed or something:
    Let's create multiple personalities. Lots of them, maybe even dozens of them. I mean, we're not crazy, we know who we are, and we know that those other personalities are just purposeful extensions of ourselves, but it's important to have extra personalities for step two of the plan.
    See, we're going to create these personalities, so that we have other...'sort of' people around so that we can get differing opinions on the same topics. I mean, we know they're all our own opinions, but it's more fun to do them in different voices or something, y'know?
    So, we put these personalities in reserve, right? Then we use our dominant personality to create a sort of...adventure for the others. Like, we create a premise and boundaries and an objective and we give our other personalities certain roles to play and influences to take into account.
    And then we, the dominant personality talk to the lesser personalities and ask them what they do in this premise. Sort of like...a quest of some kind. And we see how long it takes before they achieve the objective that we assigned.

    Ah, it's Morsen the Baker arguing with Hetur the Potter. They live in the homes carved into the sheer rock-face that stretches into the sky. In front of their home they have tents where they sell their wares.

    Both of them are the patriarchs of their families. Hetur used to be a warrior, but after he was lamed in the leg he's become lethargic. He's got a mighty beard and a pot-belly. Morsen is feeble and old, and but he does seem to love his family.

    Up until recently, Hetur was married to Morsen's daughter. But Hetur's an enormous womanizer, and so she sued for a divorce.

    Okay, let's try to find Flosi. Ah, Flosi is Hetur's daughter, by the way.

    She's in the tent, at the potter's wheel, like always. Earlier she was nervously looking over her shoulder at the argument between her father and Morsen, but now she's focused on her work. Hetur makes her do almost all of the work, while he just sits around and sells the pots. She's twelve years old, has light brown hair, and is fairly tall for a girl. She's in the same pose she is for pose of the day, hunched over the wheel, hair wrapped up, squeezing the clay, and pumping the spinning wheel with her foot.

    Well, the idea behind this was-

    I'm afraid that in Landnam, this would ba a civil dispute, and those are indeed allow to be settled by trial by combat. What Hetur did is unjust and against the general morals of the area, but technically legal.

    Let's see what's happening at the inn...

    Okay, it's mid-day so there's only the saddest assortment of prostitutes outside. Through the open window you can see Sturk, the bartender. He's young and charismatic, everyone likes him. There's a few people sitting at the bar. It looks like they're together: A short man and a butch woman. Both wearing mostly leather. I can hear music inside, but can't see the musician. Upstairs I hear a discussion in one of the rooms. It sounds like three men.

    On the third floor is Naljis's suite, he's the owner. He's probably in, but I don't hear anything. He might be doing some paperwork.

    Well, the idea being that if you can't physically interact with the world or communicate or anything, then you would just have to be a fly on the wall and watch all the cool stories unraveling around you. Which, I assumed, would sound really cool.

    And that brings up some cool issues about interactivity, because deciding what to focus would change the stories drastically, so it actually is effecting the world, despite claiming not to.

    The real reason people did not get it is because lacking interactivity is pretty much the one thing Quest Threads do not do, and your thread proclaims Quest in the header. I'd bet anything the guy saying 'Listen' did not think 'Listen' was and would be the only option available.

    What's funny is, Omnipotence quest was constantly pushed to be similar to this. People just wanted to watch stuff happen with minimal interference. The difference between that and this is that in Omnipotence quest we could interact and change things beyond just who we watched if we wanted to.

    It's not. There's also examine, remember, think, wait, follow / watch, etc.

    I do not know what that is. And I'm not sure if I can draw.

    But you are influencing events. I mean... here, a quest doesn't work like real life. Let's take, for example, that fight described earlier between Hetur and Morsen. The events that follow that aren't written in stone at all, there's just a bunch of vague. So if /tg/ starts following one character, it might lead to a brutal and blood feud between the two of them, or if may lead to a character subtly poisoning another, or it may lead to all sorts of weird shit depending on what's focused on.

    Yeah, it LEADS to things happening, but it's not like we know what's going to happen, we have no idea what our focusing could cause. It's not like we're going ">push boulder down mountain and see who it hits" or something along those lines, it's just, ">stay a while and see what happens". We're not ACTUALLY influencing it in terms of our actual character, at least not consciously.

    Despite all that, it's a very interesting concept, and the setting seems fun enough. We just need to be able to stretch our legs a little, if you'll excuse the joke. It's just good game design!

    Yes, yes... 1.) maybe Corpse "Quest" wasn't the best title. But it does sound cool. 2.) a better explanation might be due at the beginning. But this did create some interesting emergent-type gameplay.

    This world, as far as anyone can tell, is a flat plane that expands infinitely in all directions. There is no "sun", only a haze in the sky that is seemingly locked in place. So in other words, every location has it's own unique weather that never changes.

    Most of the world has rock as the ground and intensely hot or cold temperatures. The few stable areas are usually in bizarre, highly isolated places: enormous floating boulders, deep pit cities with sheer edges, high flat-top mesas, completely enclosed caves with glowing rock, small areas surrounded entirely by fog, etc. Each area has it's own form of government and means of commerce.

    Transportation is done by weird linking-pebbles. It's impossible to tell them from a normal pebble, but when you touch them, you are instantly teleported to the linked-pebble. These are extremely valuable and carefully regulated by each city as they are found.

    And so forth.

    Well, in case we don't meet these characters again:

    Part of the story which wasn't revealed is that she was previously semi-engaged to Karis, one of Morsen's sons. Although he loves her, Hetur has set up an exorbitant bridal fee. So in order to gain the money, he's been working for the city watch at night.

    One potential sub-plot involves him stumbling across Luret during his night watch activities, and finding him in the middle of one of his hard gay exploits. He would then blackmail Hetur into fixing all these problems, allowing he and Flosi would live happily ever after.

    But then again, other possible outcomes were bad, and some were mixed, like Karis semi-kidnapping / semi-eloping with Flosi.

    If we were simply a skull, alive for reasons it could not discern, with a memory that had faded with the ages until it had no identity, THEN it might be easier to be less self-centered.

    A very peculiar series of events unfolds right in front of a you.

    Under your watchful gaze, a man pulling a cart passes by. On the cart there are a number of fruits, probably destined to be sold on the market. However, a single orange seems to be rejecting its fate.

    The cart is thrown a bit by a rock that happens to be in its path (was it there before? You could've sworn that the road was smooth), throwing off a single fruit.

    The fruit bounces on the ground a few times, rolling away from you, until a young kid acrossthe street tries to grab it. He misses for the first time and the orange rolls away, but unavailed by the failure, he tries again.

    As he runs after the rolling fruit, he skips on something, falling face forward to the ground... or he would have, if there wasn't a small tree growing in the way. As it is, the kid headbutts the tree with considerable force, even knocking few of the loose leaves free. He is alright though, and he got the orange!

    One of the leaves falls towards you and lands on your skull. And you hear a voice.
