My name? My name's not important. You'll never remember it for long enough anyway.What is important is what I have to do.I don't really hate this world, and the dildos living in it. My whole life is just one thankless task after another, but that's okay. I always wanted to try and make sure I do some good for someone before I get my ticket punched.This is the time of babysitting a crazy eldritchian horror with amazingly bad taste in football teams and TV shows, and no errand is worth bellyaching about.And I'll try to get through this without going insane myself and putting her out of her misery.It's time for me to wake up and try not to die.This stupid crossover thing begins here.
>>39151315> I'm sleeping. One of my favorite things to do in the world.>I'll have to wake up in a little bit, though. Because things need doing. Things need stopping before they actually happen.>And someone needs to try and stop Risa from destroying the world because she feels like it, I guess.Wake up.No get some more sleep though. I earned it.
>>39151343>No get some more sleep though. I earned it.
Ayyy>>39151343>No get some more sleep though. I earned it.
>>39151343>[X] Think lewd thoughts about soul gem licking
>>39151343>Wake up, find Risa, fall asleep on Risabutt
>>39151343>Have a threesome.

>>39151467Another day, another sunrise.Another twenty-four hours taken out of an already declining life expectancy....Yeah, of course I'm always this bright and optimistic in the fucking morning.2/3]
Damn, you're even more negative than Chiaki. That's actually sort of impressive.
>>39151482Anyway, I'm up. Probably before anyone else in this fucking place. Yeah, Risa should still be asleep right now. Idiot's probably plastered to Jager's abs by her dried drool.Anyway, there's still time for me to do my own shit before I have to babysit the world-ending horror.What should I do?Check up on Risa.Check up on Jager.Check up on Sin-Fin.Get breakfast.Get swole.Change out of your clothes and into something new. Because going around in the clothes you slept in is fucking gross.
Who are you and why do you look like Rena with no freckles
>>39151499But she does it with a smile.
>>39151502>Get swole.We are already in dirty clothes might as well put them to one last use.

>>39151798I'm...huh. It's been a while, so I don't really know what muscle group I'm supposed to work on today.Fuck it. Let's just do something we're good at.What should I do? I've probably only got time for one before the day starts to shit itself.Benchpress.Squat.
>>39151809>Squat.GLUTES FOR THE SLOOTS

Guys, let's skip leg day just one timeIt won't hurt.
>>39151903What's the worst that could happen?
>>39151819 >>39151822 >>39151840 >>39151854 >>39151858Alright, today's leg day apparently. Let's bust some fucking knees.I remember my current max is 250 pounds.NEARLY three plates.Do I want to try and max out at 300, or just smash a few sets on my current max?If anything it'll be something to be proud about. A brief distraction on the existential dread that is my life.Max out at 300 lbs. You got this. It isn't all that heavy.Stay at current max. You don't have a spotter, this could be dangerous.
>>39152052>Max out at 300 lbs. You got this. It isn't all that heavy.

>>39152052What the hell. Life's too short to fucking plateau on squats, the easiest fucking compound lift there is. Yeah, I'm not the lifting juggernaut Jager is, but I can handle my own.Three plates it is. Now let's see....just get into position, take note of proper form, and...
>>39152634GET A SPOTTER
>>39152634I fucking knew this would happen!
>>39152648It's a fucking setup! AE is out to get us!
>>39152634AWWWW FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK.FUCK! I'm dead. I'm dead! Such hubris it was to try and fucking up my max without a fucking spotter!FUCKING SHIT. IT FEELS LIKE MY SPINE IS REPLACED WITH RAZOR BLADES.Don't cry. DON'T CRY.
>>39152663Quickly! Shout for, er, sign language furiously for help!
>>39152680Decu will never be huge. I don't know why he continues to delude himself.
>>39152663Okay. Okay. I can still walk. That's...That's enough getting swole for now.Right. Good workout.I can feel the gains already.What should I do now?Get breakfast.Change clothes.Check up on Jager.Check up on Risa.Check up on Sin-Fin.
>>39152697>>Check up on Risa.

>>39152697>Change clothes.Change into something lewd.
>>39152697>[X]Shower and change clothes after that workout. You can check with Jager about your back right after.
[x]Ask Risa, Jager, and Sin-Fin to join you for breakfast while you're changing clothes.
>>39153148Decu is Plantbro and Plantbro is Decu?
>>39152697> [X]Get breakfast.
>>39152697Damn, Plantdoka, I guess your STR stat really was bad. I forgot for a second that the stars can go negative. The funny joke indicators instead of words didn't even make you look this noodly.
>>39152705 >>39152710 >>39152718 >>39152725Alright. It's time to check on the old ball-and-chain, I guess.I'll just limp over to her room and give her a look. With luck she's still there, sleeping and dreaming of whatever supernatural horror monsters from outer space dream about.Butts, maybe? Sure. Butts.Sometimes I have no idea what she'll be obsessed about next....No, make that 'all the time'.
>>39153253Okay. Here's her room. You just need to crack it open and take a peek. She should be visible from it, you don't need to go in.
>>39153273Risa should be there. There's no way she'd be up this early. She'll be asleep inside her box like always.Right?
>>39153283Show no fear plant bro! Risa would never harm you! After all, you are her bestest friend. Forever.
>>39153309Shake the box
>>39153283 >>39153309>Flick on the light switch, it's dark in here.
>>39153309[x]Stick your butt in the box, see if Risa responds.
>>39153309>[X]Very carefully search the darkness. She must be hiding there.
>>39153309>defcon 5does that mean everything is fine?
>>39153309Enter the dark. Risa will protect you from what lurks within.Trust in Risa. Faith in Risa.
>>39153309...She's not there.Okay. I shouldn't panic. I should be alert, not panic.Because, you know, the last time she disappeared like this she tried to eat God or something.Okay. What to do, now?Run all over the house screaming in panic.Try and look for Jager. She probably knows where Risa is.Consult your surveillance team right this very second. If anyone can find Risa, it's them.
>>39153309>Throw some Swedish Fish in front of you. There's no way she can resist.
>>39153361>[x]Consult your surveillance team right this very second. If anyone can find Risa, it's them.
>>39153361>Try and look for Jager. She probably knows where Risa is.
>>39153361Run all over the house screaming in panic.
>>39153361>[X]Try and look for Jager. She probably knows where Risa is.>[X]If that fails, disguise yourself as Jager.
>>39153361>[x]Try and look for Jager. She probably knows where Risa is.
>>39153361>Consult your surveillance team right this very second. If anyone can find Risa, it's them.We have one?
>>39153361>[X]Hold your breath.That's one endurance training you haven't tried for a while.
>>39153361>Try to bait her out of hiding with Swedish Fish, rosk n roll CDs, and Doctor Who merchandise.
>>39153361>Try and look for Jager. She probably knows where Risa is.Risa is probably lurking over her abs anyways.
>>39153417The dreaded ab limpet is an insatiable beast....
>>39153361> Consult your surveillance team (Mendel!)
>>39153361> [X]Try and look for Jager. She probably knows where Risa is.
If Risa replaced MG Risa, I wonder who replaced Risa?Will we find MG Risa being mesmerized by Jäger abs? Or someone else being subdued by Fuego's greatness and surrounded by a small army of flexing statues?
You know, I think I found a use for Chiaki's new accessory.Terror missions.A territory's government requests civilian repacification. Chiaki and a Callidus escort get dropped into an area of unrest where a major revolution is currently starting up. The Callidus squad do their magic to enlarge Chiaki's image. Chiaki spreads her wings and does what she always does to large crowds of unknowing citizens.A few hundred million yen in the bank.
>>39153620Wouldn't that just result in everyone killing her Officio and a lot of confused citizens? I'd guess that the avg civvie doesn't know the significance of Akemi Homura reborn.
>>39153667That's what the Callidus squad is for. If there is any MG near, it'll be hard to tell how much of Chiaki's appearance is real and how much is fabricated. And even then, the average MG won't know the significance of Akemi Homura, either. An actual incubator would have to be present for her to be revealed. You can even have the Callidus completely change the wings.
>>39153620Any other officio got wind of that the Ninth would be dead. This is what it must feel like if God existed. All the power in the world, never/not able to use it.
Sincere question from an ass-man: what is with this quest and asses? Like, where did it start?
>>39153361>[x]Consult your surveillance team right this very second. If anyone can find Risa, it's them.Oh dear. Oh dear indeed. Best get a handle on where our charge has gotten off too.
>>39153795Them sinful fins.
>inb4 risa is planning a surprise for plantbro.>The surprise is horrifying and distressing
>>39153795Since it was revealed 2 characters have perfect booties.
>>39153836One of them being Deculture______, the other Dan___________
>>39153836Ah. Which 2?
>more art in a parody thread than MGNQ
>>39153866Sin-Fin for oneAnd Jaeger is just purrfect in everyway and our wolfu.
>>39153866SinFin and Asmodeus
>>39153361>[X]Consult your surveillance team right this very second. If anyone can find Risa, it's them.
>>39153380 >>39153383 >>39153384 >>39153417Alright. That makes sense. Find the abs, find the ab limpet. Alright. Okay. Good plan.And wonder of wonders, guess who I find in the kitchen cooking an early breakfast?"Oh, good morning, Harriet!" Jager greets me cheerfuly, lightly-dressed in front of a sputtering pan. There's nothing good about this morning, but I return it anyway. "Sorry if I woke you, I just wanted fried eggs all of a sudden, hahaha." The ab monster pauses to flip one of the sunny-side up eggs she's frying with butter upside down. "I made enough for everyone, so you can have some if you like! Er..." She looks at me with worry. "...Why are you holding your back like that? Did you hurt yourself lifting again--"No. No, I didn't.Maybe.Anyway, where's Risa? She's not in her room. "Not in her room?" Jager echoes. "...That's strange, I swear I saw her in there on my way here." She shrugs, then. "Maybe she stepped out for a bit? It's not the first time she did. She'll probably back in a little while, no need to worry. . . .[1/2]
>>39154002Oh wow, I hate this quest already.
>>39154015>She'll probably back in a little while, no need to worry.Yeah. Sure. No need to worry at all. [SWEATING INTENSIFIES]
>>39154064Don't think about what she could be up to, just think about what she's done before....
>>39154015...Stepped out for a bit?Jager. Jager, please.Are you just really naive or did your abdominal muscles leech all blood going to your brain?Doesn't she know how dangerous Risa being loose outside is?!"Harriet." There's a chiding tone in Jager's words. "I'm sure Risa's just goofing off somewhere. She'll come back."That is exactly what I'm worried about!SHIT!What do I do now?Get into a face-to-face with your surveillance team. The main objective is out of the house!Try to remain calm and get Sin-Fin to help you. She'll understand.
>>39154131Since you're here, eat some breakfast.

>>39154131>[x]Get into a face-to-face with your surveillance team. The main objective is out of the house!Our main ally has failed us, do they not realise the seriousness of the situation? Perhaps Fuego can help us?
>>39154131[X]Shit your pants.
>>39154131[x]Try to remain calm and get Sin-Fin to help you. She'll understand.
>>39154131>Eat breakfast. Can't chase the Risa-cat on an empty stomach.

>>39154131>Get into a face-to-face with your surveillance team. The main objective is out of the house!The clown will be worthless.
>>39154131Get sin fin to help. Risa might be on her ass
>>39154131>Get into a face-to-face with your surveillance team. The main objective is out of the house!We injured our back. We need to delegate to our support team.
>>39154226Well in that case we'd have already found her!

She does nothing around here except lock herself in a room and feel sorry for herself, she should be useful!I pull open the door to her room, and...!"...Why haven't you changed out of your sleeping clothes? That's gross."Christ, there's no time for that! Risa's missing."Yes. We have been aware of it since this morning."...Then why--"You didn't ask. But I can take you to where she is right now."That's convenient--"For a given level of 'she', that is."...What?
>>39155080...it's probably fine. Also, is it just me or is Sin-Fin more sassy than usual?
>>39155080"Nevermind. Do you want me to take you to her?"...Headcases. Every single one in this house. Nuttier than one of Jager's granola bars.Yes. Trust the clown. For now.No. Do not trust the clown. Do not ever trust clowns. Go with your surveillance team instead.
>>39155080Change out of sleeping clothes. Examine gender while you do so
>>39155123>No. Do not trust the clown. Do not ever trust clowns. Go with your surveillance team instead.I still don't believe we have one. Let's see it.
>>39155123>[x]Yes. Trust the clown. For now.>[x]No. Do not trust the clown. Do not ever trust clowns. Go with your surveillance team instead.Trust no one, question everything.
>>39155123>Yes. Trust the clown. For now.>You're acting unusually spirited SinFin, why?
>>39155123Yes. Trust the clown. For now. WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG
>>39155123>Yes. Trust the clown. For now.>She's right about the clothes. Go naked for now, no one will mind.
>>39155123>Yes. Trust the clown. For nowShe seems remarkably lively and not depressed right now.
>>39155123>No. Do not trust the clown. Do not ever trust clowns. Go with your surveillance team instead.This Sin Fin is far to talkative and not making video-game cheat codes with her head movements. Don't trust the clown plantbro!
>>39155123>[x]No. Do not trust the clown. Do not ever trust clowns. Go with your surveillance team instead.Can't sleep, clowns will get us.
>>39155123>No. Do not trust the clown. Do not ever trust clowns. Go with your surveillance team instead.It's 42 isn't it? That's our surveillance team.
>>39155123Trust the fins. Also take off some clothes
>>39155123>No. Do not trust the clown. Do not ever trust clowns. Go with your surveillance team instead.Something weird is up with the clown. I doubt the existence of the fins.
>>39155123> Huh... No ellipses! You aren't Sin Fin!
So, just a matter of curiosity: Is this some kind of 40k Magical Girl thing, or what?
>>39155123Is it time? I think its time.
>>39155544Nope, Spin off from bleach that went weird and incorporated other mythologies.
>>39155544You're thinking of Magical Girl Noir Quest. That's run by Deculture, not "AzureEarth"
>>39155579Odd combo choices in both cases, but good to know. Thanks.Further: If I were to start MGNQ, would your advice be "Don't" given length of backlog?
>>39155554It's always the time.
>>39155617no, the advice would be to make sure you have enough time to marathon the backlog
>>39155617If you completely ignore the backlog and just start with the next thread, you'll still have read more of the quest than most of the anons that vote.
>>39155617My advice would be to prepare some coffee, get comfy and hole up in your room for a day or two.
>>39155138 >>39155197 >>39155208 >>39155224Nope. Fuck off with that snarky attitude of yours, clown. You just earned yourself my everlasting suspicion.Let's go with my secret surveillance team instead. Hopefully I don't blow their cover by visiting them, as they're pretty much in the perfect hiding spot.[1/2]
>>39155617Go to magicalgirlnoir.comIt has Decu's posts only there, and is a much easier read than going through the archives. Just chip away at it and you can get through it without a lot of hassle.
>>39155617If you have a lot of time on your hands, it's worth a read. I'd go for the e-book, though, and not bother with suptg, wading through anon's posts will take up oodles of time and MGNQ is already fucking massive on its own.
>>39155676>I'd go for the e-book, thoughI can see how one might want to skip waifu wars and squabbling, but does e-book have all the fanart or only the stuff Decu posts in updates?Missing out on Hat's & Dan's work (not to mention couple other drawfriends) would be real shame.
>>39155660Inb4 they're hiding behind the 'camera.'Also, first time I've seen an MC tell a major allied NPC to fuck off. Oh, I seem to have an erection for some reason.
>>39155660Alright. Here we are. Waffle truck outside the shrine. I just gotta do the secret knock at the back door, and they'll open. If anyone should know where Risa is, it's these guys....Only I've forgotten the fucking secret knock...!What do I do now?Knock randomly. You're bound to get it somehow.Force the door open.Ask to be let in.
>>39155808>Force the door open.This is an emergency.

>>39155808>Ask to be let in.

>>39155852 >>39155853>>39155875 >>39155881Just...fuck it, I'll try whatever knock that comes to my head. Maybe one of them'll be right.After ten minutes of rapping at the doors with my knuckles, the occupants inside finally throw the door open. Revealing their identities as my secret surveillance squad briefly to the world.Pretty good team, this. Great in a fight, and surprisingly adept when it comes to technical stuff like this."Hey. You guys have any idea where the main objective is? She disappeared this morning."The strange-looking occupants glance at each other, before they beckon me into the truck. I follow them in, and they gesture to one of the many monitors they have active. It's showing a picture of something small and stocky eating what looks like Taiyaki on top of a park bench somewhere.
>>39156573Son of a bitch.

>>39156573...No way. No way that's her.What the fuck happened to Risa?...No way. No way that's her.What the fuck happened to Risa?You gotta be shittin' me here. This isn't here. This is some goblin.

>everybody starts this quest by doing body maintenance rather than having character interactionLiterally whyInstead of interesting narrative development you choose the most boring option
>>39157648Because SICK GAINS, BRAH.
>>39157648Because we have our priorities right.
>>39157648It's an April Fools cross-over. No one is expecting interesting narrative developments.
>>39157648Gotta get /fit/ bruh.
>>39157722>>39157727>>39157733>>39157764But there is nothing entertaining or interesting about lifting, it's just mundane body maintenance in the same vein as showering or brushing your teeth.
>>39157648chill out autismo
>>39157648>guaranteed_replies.gifit's almost like you know /tg/ or something
>>39157648>>39157798If we need to explain this to you, you're too new to understand.
>>39157798Lifting is life!!
So was AE's MGNQ thread last night indicative of how HQR usually is? I've tried reading it from the beginning a couple time but always got sidetracked and never got that far in.
>>39158114Yes, when him and the audience are both having fun.
>>39157861>>39157979>>39158043>these megafaggotsEven when we go past the mundane and boring narrative, we're getting basically one eighth of what Deculture usually writes for the same amount of time between "updates", all for some quick, simple art.This is just not fun.
>>39158114There's also killing and eating enemies and stuff. But sometimes it gets a little dicey or some anons get frustrated, since some felt like it was a balancing act between social first-aid with comrades vs. staying powerful enough to be relevant. There's been some rough patches here and there with the quest.
>>39158114Its really like when we're a the top. Him at the top of his game, and his players at the top of NOT being shits.
>>39158290It feels like decu is posting a lot more often this time.
>>39158114HQR is generally a bit more grounded than that and generally doesn't end with Risa killing her comrades out of paranoia. Otherwise, yet.
>>39158472Well let's be honest with that. The Comrades we should have killed out of paranoia fucked us over. Hard.
>>39158466He made 10 updates so far, including the OP, each of them with two or more unique images after about 7-8 hours, which is already longer than the usual, recent thread.There is marginally less text per update, and there are more player decisions per time unit than usually.At least we got none of the usual lewdposting.I think I'll just go to sleep.
I have no idea what's going on in today's thread but I am liking it.
>>39158596Deculture of MGNQ and AE switched quests for a day.
>>39158533>1.33 updates per hour>same amount of time between updatesI don't understand. That's like quadruple the usual speed.
>These past two days>mfw I don't read HQR
>>39158774don't worry, it's othing to lose your head over
>>39158774Guess you need to get gud
>>39158815Pls don't bully the mumi.
>>39158869She should have kept her head in the game then.
>>39158972>>39158869>>39158815>>39158774I don't get it.. who's the hot blond?
>>39158774and I don't read MGQN and all know is they like lesbians and feelings and I understood everything perfectly.
Decu is tot
>>39159061Someone who bit off more than she could chew.
>>39159061Frankly, someone who gets in over their head.
>>39159061One of the head magical girls in MGNQ's protagonist's circle of friends.Go watch Madoka Magica, you won't regret it.
Okay I can't go to sleep without saying what bothered me. "AE", I have to admit that this wasn't one of your top moments. I don't understand what you wanted us to do. Take for example the squat. We have trained long and hard and can squat 250 for reps. Feels like we could have gone that extra mile and nailed 300, but no, you slapped us down. It felt like a trap option, all I'm saying.Feels like you want to keep Jager as the top lifter. Have you heard of player agency? I don't think that was handled very well in this thread. Sometimes I just don't know what you expect from us.
>>39159286>Have you heard of player agency?>player agency?>agency
>>39159286I also feel like that this is player vs. QM rather than player vs. adventure. How were we supposed to know that we could've gotten a spotter when squatting? We didn't have any opportunity to eat any steel-cut oats either or any option to back out even when we were revealed to not have squatted in a while. Sometimes I think that there's too many things to juggle at once and too many expectations for us to realistically fulfill.
>>39159286>>39159368You're taking this far too seriously. It's an April Fool's joke, they're just fucking with us.
>>39159064And no one likes write up characters. Don't forget that part.>>39159286Okay, you made me laugh.
>>39159422I was joking, anon. Steel-cut oats should've given that away. Plus the cute cat picture.But wait, oh dammit. I fell for it too.
>>39159422Dude, he's obviously poking fun at the usual shit posters in HQR
>>39159422He's taking the piss out of the arguments you would get in HQR.
Decu is kill
>>39159557>>39159089Isn't it like, 7am for him now
>>39159286>>39159368That guy was an annoying shit. I hope he never comes back. I think he sperged it up in AOPH too, because that fire reallly needed more gasoline
>>39159769While I do want to punch him in the snout, I can't really hate the bastard assuming he did it out his passion for the quest and wasn't just a shitposter. But yeah, I prefer the quieter threads now.
>>39159839he always came off as passive aggressive and condescending to me. It was like he wanted an FAQ before doing anything and he always always always had to get the last word.
>>39159964Oh, that fucking guy. Think he jumped on hqr a while ago, and azure just shook him off.
>>39159839I'm just sad people voted for the stupid option of stealing from our friend Snazzy Azzy, and didn't get punished at all. I mean the first time we fucked up that stupidly we died and lost our plant friend. The second time, we lost our reroll ability.We've been bad, AE-sama, and we need punishment! Well, I mean too late now, and I'm not going to harp on it. I just want you all to know we deserve to be bound and spanked.
>>39160116>mfw I skipped that thread entirely
>>39160163Honestly, that was probably the best plan. Just that any faggot who says AE doesn't care about his quest should note that happened, and shut the fuck up.Honestly, though, we got a bunch of fags going "This third string characters deserve true love!" BITCH. WE EAT PEOPLE. WHAT ARE YOU DOING STEALING OUR FRIENDS THINGS? I mean, FFS, we should have just eaten what-his-face to gain spiral power.But that's my opinion, and not the choice other anon's made, so it's cool bro. The quest doesn't exist for just me alone.
>>39160277I share your opinion and am feeling the mad overtaking me as I remember what the thread was supposed to be about.Let's just hope that it doesn't repeat itself and we can all continue having fun.
>>39160116Wasn't that whole thing a result of a miscount?
>>39160277>>39160339This is how it starts. DECU, Risa Cats are easily distracted and casually cruel, you can't leave her voices alone for too long or else they start to revolt! Is this . . . . is this the magic of the lewd dumps in MGNQ? Is this what they prevent?Am . . am I doing it right?
>>39160356It was the result of Bears. Never trust the Bears.
>>39160356Nope. But one guy started a shit storm claiming it was.I commented a number of times that it was a stupid idea and he cited each of my comments as a vote. Which they weren't.. I'm not three people. But he was having a tirade so I just talked to AE about his world of lewds. Which is going swimmingly.
God damn this is the most autistic quest thread I've ever seen
>>39160557You weren't around for Hero Quest Rena, i see.
>>39160611or AOPHor Shadow Quest
>>39160557Or early Joker QuestOr Princess Guard Quest
>>39160693What was AOPH? I seem to have entirely missed that one. Seems like I should be glad, but I'm morbidly curious.
>>39160741or any of EGO's works>>39160744Attack on Pokemon HunterFleshcrafting Pokemon features on unfortunate volunteers thrown in Monster Hunter / Attack on Titan meat grinder.
>>39160744Attack on Pokemon Hunter Questtake AOT and mix it with pokemonsome autism, some paranoia, some rail roading, a lot of monster hunter.It was a nice idea and concept but so much disconnect and all communication was just screaming at each other.
>>39160811>>39160835Still waiting on White Tiger/Black Hound edition.Dran's gonna come back someday ;_;
>>39159839>But yeah, I prefer the quieter threads now.Except AE doesn't. He really really doesn't. To him, a quiet thread means he might as well drop the quest because no one cares. I'm not sure what's hard to get about that.>>39160498And now you're just lying. The math was done.
>>39161228>Except AE doesn't. He really really doesn't.gimme a quote or a link on
I wonder if the bear team summon is one of those hidden upgrades.
>>39161249From the end of last thread, someone, probably you, said>I comment upon the way it felt nice tonight with lower player numbers.to which I replied>Mildly disagree with >>38982179 that the lower numbers made it feel nicer, as instead the thread felt a lot less lively to meto your comment, AE responded with>Ah, well... I am not too sure about that!And to mine with>Ah, me too.
>>39161354Makes you wonder if there's an ideal number of active quest participants.
>>39159964You're doing a thing where you think everyone not happy with some of the things AE is doing is the same person. It's not very becoming.
>>39161228Yeah I'm saying that sped counted my comments as votes. None were votes or linked to AE's post. He just said LOOK AT THESE VOTES!1!
>>39161354I found the post/thread you mentioned but seems like a real stretch to say>To him, a quiet thread means he might as well drop the quest because no one cares.
>>39161420I remember that guy too.
>>39161407I would say that the ideally you should have at least one post every ten minutes or so. If you go half an hour of just a dead thread, then it really seems like people don't care.
>>39161474He really fucked up AoPH.
>>39161442Well for THAT, you need to look at page 731 where AE is saying he wants to wrap up the quest as soon as possible (within ten threads) and he said >It is for the best I think. This thread sort of cemented thatSo despite your thoughts that the quest has gotten better in the last thread, I'd say that indicates that AE had a considerably different interpretation, because I don't think he'd want to wrap stuff up because he was afraid he was having too much fun.
>>39161630Quest fell apart with the whole kidnapping repeatedly/mind fucking the waifu.AE killed his own quest. So yeah it'll be over soon. Participation is shot because anons got sick of that bullshit.
>>39161498Are you honestly implying that only one person was mad at Dran?Furthermore, are you implying that anyone was responsible for fucking up AoPH harder than Dran himself?
>>39161677I'd argue it's more that people aren't participating because they don't want to start any arguments or say things that might make AE unhappy.
>>39161677Making a Batman-like villain with resources and prep-time was the biggest mistake.
>>39161630it will be 2 years old this Maythe end being nigh is fine with menothing lasts forever
>>39161954>nothing lasts foreverI'd never believe these words to be uttered in a thread run by Decu.
>>39161833nobody cares about AOPH anymore sperglet it die
>>39161919Even looking back on it now, I think my biggest problem with Mendel was, looking at all the time and resources and intelligence, I feel like we just didn't deserve to be able to beat her. Like AE's idea of our savagery being able to overcome Mendel's everything else? It'd always feel like AE was letting us win.
>>39162003I refuse to believe Decu's claim that we're halfway through MGNQ. We all know how much worse his pacing's gotten over the course of the quest.
>>39162008Then why are you the one who keeps bringing it up?
>>39161833Ah, now this is the Hollow Quest I've come to know and love. Remember when we were a rhyming cat just fucking with people? Those were the best times. I'm going to go trawl the archives for fun.Although honestly the last few threads have been pretty on-point. Also, the crossovers are straight up godly. AE should spend some time doing just those whenever it gets to derp in the main quest. After he shows us how cute Caede has gotten. We should start calling her our Katey Kat and insist she wear cat ears (or try to sneak them onto her all the time).Of course, we gotta get her Poppa some quality time with her as well to see how big she's grown under our care.
>>39162066Man, it was more of a question of was Mendel really trying to gun for use, or was she just kind of Yandere for us while being massively overworked. I mean, she has a worldwide organization to look after, and we're just in Japan.The few times she did focus on us, she fucked us up pretty hard. But 90% of the time she was just really, really annoyed with us.But goddamn we have to stop feeding the bears.
>>39162134i love the omakes and crossovers but I feel like every time business is finally going to pick AE calls it a night.>>39162092the quest will end when Decu finally gets huge
>>39162134>Remember when we were a rhyming cat just fucking with people?Honestly? I feel like that stuff, back when it was just blatantly rehashing Hollow Quest Classic, would have gotten really old, really fast had we just kept doing it.
>>39162221>the quest will end when Decu finally gets hugeThat's never going to happen. He has the HUGE equivalent of anorexia; no matter how much he gains, he's never going to think he's huge.
honestly, I think the longevity is the main reason for the decline in HQR playerbase size.some got bored with it over time and the big numbers scare away some potential new players.the shitstorms didn't help either though.
>>39162092Halfway? Isn't he intending to end it this year? Pretty sure that puts it well over halfway done.
>>39162134I WANT TO KNOW HOW MUCH CUTER CAEDE IS SO WE CAN PINCH HER CHEEKS!Kinda hoping when "Azure" resumes tonight we run into her while she's still being shocked about developments that include Eating the Hellwyrm...because she was likely not expecting that.
>>39162312I believe that is exactly the joke being made here.
>>39162572I don't think Decu even believes that one.
>>39162263Well, yes, growth had to happen. But people seemed to keep in mind that it was a quest to have fun and roll with the punches. They took FUN as a challenge, not a personal slight.
>>39162972But they think fun means that they don't have to take things seriously. And that leads to telling Ryouichi the truth because they wanted to see the look on his face. Or even the whole bothering with Ryouichi at all, since that was just a huge time sink and ultimately a waste of three Fatebreakers.
It's sad the thread will die before Decu, I mean "Azure" gets back.
>>39163237Probably, but it was a fun ride.
>>39163170Truth. You speak truth. Although I feel we should have told Ryouichi the truth and then eaten him. That would have solved the problem too.
dicks>>39163580too much paranoia is badmust find comfortable middle ground
>>39164331>too much paranoia is badClearly you've never read MGNQ.
>>39164331We will forever trust our Jager, our Sinful Fins, our Plant-doko, and our Best Scrub.All else is possible food. Besides, eating Ryouichi would have been nowhere close to paranoia. Dude was a bear. Or at least a caniform.Jager is related to Bears!
So Hey I fell behind on this quest, did we ever give Jager a plot rock engagement ring?
>>39164380I archived binged up to big shell before I got boredDecu "runs" it way too early in my timezone7 am is too early to be paranoid
>>39164650Jagerbombs isn't a bear. You take that back! Wolfu aren't bears. That's crazy talk. I mean, what kind of->Pic related springs to mindOn my world I am wolf."Sorry, he's wolf,"Then I'll be bear, its better than wolf!...NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
>>39164960No. We sang a song and dance with no votes over consoling her and made her cry and rush out of a resturant because AE thought it would be funny.Afterwards we apologized and cuddled.
>>39164992what if we've been the bear this entire time?
>>39165015We've told her that we know there are parts of us missing...the human parts, and that we want to find them for her. And its clear that if Jagerbombs ever wanted us to die...we'd do it. Holy fuck we are messed up and are obsessed with our Jager Bombs Wolfu Bombastic Simply Fantastic Ablicious
>>39165085Yeah. But didn't she more or less say, "Okay." Then forget that we'd literally die for her ass and call us a selfish cat?
>>39165036No, we're Felidae. Bears and Wolves are Canidae. No such luck.Unless we eat the Jager. Hue hue hue hue hue.
>>39165112Jager dares not use the peanut butter trick
>>39165108To be fair Risa is a selfish cat.
>>39165108She was going through a Nazi thing at the time...frankly she's under a bit too much stress...She is filled with more conflicting versions of herself mashed all together in rapid succession.And not in a dissasociative fun way.
>>39165108We'll die for her. But we won't learn for her. Well, more that she won't teach us. Actually, I think we need to bring this up to her next thread. All we want is for her to show us how to love her, and instead she insists that we figure it out for ourselves? We are a CRIPPLE. We need HELP. Why won't she do that for us? Instead, she just always watches us fail and hurt, and we don't know how to stop it, and we would die for her if that would be the right way to love her but apparently it's not? Why does she still stay with us then? Not that we want her to go, that would be like living in a world made of stairs if she wasn't there. But doesn't she want us to love her? Or . . . or. . . does she not love us?
>>39164972Do like I do and just so up for the last couple hours.
>>39165226How can she truly love others if she can't love herself?
>>39165255I hate myself and love my kids.. So that's actually pretty easy.>>39165226Not sure. Last time we spoke to her on the matter she went all "It's us against the world Risa!" So maybe? Hard confirmation might have been possible at the end of the last thread but everyone chose Sin-fin time instead of Jägerzeit.
>>39165325>that speech where she talks about its us against the fallen and we should kill the magical girls I love the wolfu
>>39165325We need to march up to her and ask her for help. She agreed to be patient for us, but it just isn't happening. Jagerbombs needs us to help find our humanity! She has all that science stuff, she can search for it.I'll be quite cross if we left it under the bed.
>>39165385And then we went and killed those magical girls...probably. Point is, they're dead! Won't Jagerbombs be so proud of us?!
>>39165412we receive the highest honor from her
>>39165445tfw you'll never get a sticker from jagerbombs
>>39165325No, because that would have been more of the same. We needed comfort, not another reminder of how broken we are. We need to go to the Jagerbombs and lay it out flat when we aren't a mess. She's always there for us when we're sad, but she just makes us sadder. She needs to make us happy, by telling us how to make her happy. She can't just keep running away and trusting our Risa cat instincts to keep chasing.We will even kidnap children for her if she wants more kids.
>>39165524Every time we've laid it flat or something similar she's just gone, "Aww you little Skitzo you don't have what I need."
