What is this bullshit? We were having a good fucking discussion, mods. No shitposting to be found. Ain't harmin' no one if we include filter words.Quest Thread General, dammit.
>>26316219Are you sure it didn't just autosage off the bottom? Because that's a thing that happens.Not everything is a mod or janitor conspiracy.
>>26316219It wasn't a mod, It fell off the board due to being in autosage.
Mods = Gods
>>26316219You must be new to 4chan. It's called autosage.
So, since our last thread self-destructed, here's what I've taken from everyone's criticism so far.A) You want to play as someone other than an established Bat character. No alternate universe nonsense will suffice, it must be someone entirely new.B) Some of you just don't want to play in anything even related to Batman. To those of you I pose the question: would a Quest set in Middle-Earth interest you more? That's another thing I've been considering lately.C) You want to build up your character and have your choices affect the world around you. I've already tried to do some of this with the inclusion of a stat sheet and gear, but I understand I could go much further. Experience points, a network of allies, etc etcAnything I'm missing?
>>26316295>would a Quest set in Middle-Earth interest you more?Honestly, I'd prefer something in a unique setting. There are far too many quests where you're in an established setting.I'd probably take a look at it, though I didn't for Batman, but I'd prefer something new.
>>26316295You are sort of getting it. Here are my thoughts.A) Would be fun if we played as Bruce Wayne right off the plane, then seeing just how different our universe became from the canon would be fun. We would make our own events, some new enemies some classic things like that.B) Too vague, you don't really seem to have a firm idea and just throw out ideas and hope you make the magical combination of words. Setting is not as important as how you write. Having a firm idea, making characters interesting, and being able to have at least one or two parts of story telling you are really good at (Combat porn, artful descriptions, well timed and executed twists, etc.) are fundamentally more important and seem to be something you are lacking.C) Yes, I want what we do to have some effect, but I don't think you get it still. Having what we do effecting the world around us doesn't mean getting experience points. It means effecting other characters, changing the world(Maybe investments cause certain parts of the city to thrive while forcing others to become cess pools) Making the public opinion of the character change based on what happened in past threads, such as making NPCs more afraid or less afraid, some actions will call for such a loss of the public trust the police start working against you, etc.Polite sage for weekday QTG and the shameful OP.
>>26316295I would also like to bring Terry back up as a prospective Quest in the future. Maybe change up his setting a little based on what happens in this current quest. Again, just a suggestion for the future.
>>26316295B: Honestly, I'm not even a Batman fan (and I *am* a LotR fan) but I'd prefer something set in some variant of the Batman set-up than Middle Earth. Even if it's just "Random Gotham Citizen #25,256 Quest", that seems like it has a lot of potential.C) XP is a bad idea unless it's meaningless. Allies are always fun!
>>26316295Why not just play as a new batman, after the last one got old and died abruptly? Then have the new character have to deal with stepping into the shoes of the old one, as well as all of his own issues.
>>26316219>not understanding what autosage is>not knowing what falling off the board meansQuestfags, stop embarrassing me.>>26316088>No, it is not another vote for Canadian batman. If done so that we are just some guy on the street who takes up his own thing and starts working his way up taming a wild city? Then yes, canadian batman, what ever.>Why not do the whole thing original? As another anon said doing something in the spirit of batman would be much more interesting then the quest as is.Quoting this anon because he speaks wisdom. Also, I'm the "another anon."
>>26316295>quest in another worldThere's another setting where a stealth-oriented hero isn't afraid of mixing things up in hand to hand combat, using weird items and gadgets or fighting kooky themed enemies that no one's tried yet.I'd shy away from Middle Earth, though I'd be interested to see how it could work.
>>26316295Trazyn the Infinite quest. It's basically batman if he was a fa/tg/uy and a self obsessed dick. Should be pretty writeable.
>>26316295Remember, the more granularity you give fatguys the more they will argue about it (arguing being the only thing we love more than gaming). If you want to go that route let them know there are mechanics, but DONT TELL THEM WHAT THEY ARE. Play things behind the screen as much as possible and keep them focused on the big picture instead of power gaming.

I hope that hobo samurai QM doesn't just quit after the first thread. It was pretty cool.
>>26316726I'd play a batman beyond quest.
>>26318641I would play that as well. Which QM would be good at bad ends?
>>26316295I have to say:Your quest is of exceedingly high quality. Seriously, it's really, really good. However, I would guess that the main reason why it isn't more popular is because it's also very, very intimidating. It's slightly hard to get into the mindset of an established character...However, don't consider that a bad thing, necessarily. You do Batman better than anyone I've seen do 'Batman' before. So yeah, consider this a big thumbs-up on my part. If you wanted to draw more people, you'd probably have to go with a Quest that has inherently more mass appeal...But I think you're doing an amazing job with what you have so far. I like what I've seen, and I hope you'd keep it up - But I also understand if you want to draw in a bigger audience.I'm struggling to describe this, but I feel that /tg/ usually wants a protagonist they can project themselves on. The way the main character of Joker Quest is (mostly) a blank slate, despite his backstory: There's no worry about having to stay 'in character', because his personality is what anyone makes of him.With Batman, you naturally want to stay as Batman as possible.
okay, guys, I've been patient, but this is a bit worrying- no news from Cosgrove for three days.Does anyone know anything?I need my bleach quest fix...
>>26318899>three daysBoo fucking hoo, you big baby. One quest just updated after a YEAR of inactivity.
>>26318899inb4 it goes the way of "Magical" Girl Quest or Katawa Yandere.
>>26318899> 3 daysWe're quite spoiled, huh?
>>26318899Honestly, I'm glad he's slowing down a bit.Risked burning out the way he was going.Now ideally the story itself might draw things out a bit as well, since a lot of things are going to start happening really really fast, and while I can appreciate him wanting to finish the quest before Kubo finishes the manga, I don't really want it to end before Kubo's hiatus does.
>>26318938It's been 2 days I thought.
>>26318938It tends to run for hours upon hours when it does run, doesn't it? Maybe the QM just needs a break. Or the Beyond People that haunt this world, ravenous for new tales, have taken him to the same shadowy realm that swallowed HPQuest, Femcock and dozens upon dozens of other disappeared QMs. Wherever they may be, we can only hope they are well, and that eventually the Beyond People see fit to let them have the internet again.
>>26318993At least we know it's possible to come back.
>>26318938We really are.>>26318919When I say no news, I mean no news.It has me worried about Cosgrove, not just the quest. The guy's dedicated and determined, and while >>26318972 has a point, it's not like he said "no quest tomorrow, I need a break.">>26318978has it?I've lost track of my sense of time, then. My bad.>>26319009>from the depths of hell>uses Clow's Magical Circle
>>26318993I just... I just want Metahuman Renaissance again. Please. Come back to me, Omega.Come back to US.
>>26319062Man I still miss Megacorp Quest.
>>26319031It is clearly High Priest Yukito's Magic Circle.Clow's looks like this. And I didn't know about either of them until like right now.
>>26318938Pretty sure he ran part 32 on Saturday, so on the easy coast we are still 18 minutes away from it being 3 days since he ran, on that fucking great cliffhanger
>>26319031An anonymous QM that some suspected to be Cosgrove was moustache-twirling about rustling waifufags' jimmies in the last QTG. If that was indeed Cosgrove, then he's probably busy scheming.
>>26319146Dude's really pushing the envelope.Although hopefully that means that we can get that whole plotline resolved pretty soon.
>>26319177It's funny how people automatically assumed it was him just because he mentioned harem shit.
>>26319177True, but Bleach Quest's problem is hareming, not waifuing.Like waifuing would imply being fixated on only one character.And as has been pointed out, we never asked for this.In the quest itself, beyond some chumpery in the waiting for posts.
>>26319210He mentioned waifu shit, not harem shit.It was just the sadism that got everyone suspicious.
Well speak of the devil, and he shall tweet.
>>26319214>implying harems aren't just collections of waifusIt's like a flock of birds, or a school of fish. A harem of waifus.
>>26316219Quest threads should always die
>>26319293...You don't need an account to view it, you know.His handle is 'QuestOP' which is a little presumptuous, but fine.
>>26319346Thanks, I realized that shortly after posting.
>>26319343Threadar morghulis, anon. Threadar morghulis.Pic related.
>>26319346Twitters and quest ops never combine well.
>>26319263Still, the fact remains that within the quest itself, the only time we actually pursued someone romantically was when we flirted with Rukia way back when.The only reason we got into the current relationship is the two girls invited us into a small room and locked the door behind us.So to say we're 'waifuhappy', when he's the one who writes chicks apparently digging us, seems disingenuous.Which is why it might not be him.
>>26318924>"Magical" Girl QuestThat was below the belt, man.
>>26319426The waifu stuff in Bleach Quest gets exaggerated because people joke about it a lot in-between posts and some anons take it too seriously.
>>26319246>>26319337Welp, looks like my Derp Heresy 2.0 game tomorrow is going to have a sleepless GM hopped up on a hellish mix of caffeine, booze, and pain meds, because I'm not getting any sleep tonight.You fool Cosgrove, you've doomed my players. You've doomed them all! Nah, they were doomed anyway. Now I'll just be too gone to hear their pathetic pleas for mercy.
>>26319485Lets just hope Cosgrove doesn't also take it seriously.
>>26316905I would pay actual money for a Metal Gear Solid Quest.
>>26319526How much? I can try something.
>>26319516If he did then Tatsuki would've pulled something by now.
Well apparently Cosgrove is not the culprit.But... Who is?
>>26319858Internal Revenue maybe? People were kinda pulling hard on Ella.
>>26319893>>26319858>Implying there is a culprit>Implying it wasn't anon trying to rustle jimmies
>>26319481>implying MGQ has anything to do with magic or girls or magical girls or questsJust another day on /40k/
>>26320086...what? Wasn't that anon implying that it hurt to be reminded of MGQ because he had enjoyed it?
Hey /tg I was thinking of starting a quest and I have a few ideas laid out but I have a fairly significant problem.I am shit tier at thinking up dialogue for various NPC's . How do I go about fixing this and where can I go to practice so I don't shit up /tg/ with more quests that die after two threads?
>>26319526I've been thinking about it, but to give it that real "metal gear" vibe I need to include long bits of writefagging, and that takes time.If there's interest I could start prepping, and maybe I'd be ready to run it in about a month or so.
>>26319426>>26319485The problem isn't the two female leads (Momo and Orihime, while unconventional, could have worked well.)but throw in some cute female Hollows (harribel and the Three Beasts), and now everyone's getting waifu-mad over moe arrancar and such bullshit.I appreciate having allies in it, I really do. just stop fapping behind the screen whenever they're describes, faggots!I seriously hope they either betray the party or get ganked; it's lead to something other than the waifuing
>>26320457A writing teacher of mine suggested going to a public place, like a coffee shop, and listen in on the conversations, to pick up the rhythms of speech. Try and write out a dialog or two, based on what you've learned.Alternately, watch a lot of movies focused on character interaction (romcoms and Taratino are a weird but effective blend)
To answer that guy asking about another Batman Quest, we really don't need it. I always found the idea of roleplaying Batman kinda dumb. Controlling him in a videogame, sure, but trying to BE the Batman just strikes me as...stupid. Don't know why. Maybe because for all the flak the anime quests get for being fanfiction, yours is LITERALLY fanfiction and metagamey as all hell since everyone already knows how Bats and his Rogues Gallery operate.
>>26320596>>26320596Stop taking it so fucking seriously faggot. People. Are. Joking. No one is actually trying to play matchmaker, no one is actually trying to get Chizuru to fuck some of our bitches. It's small talk while we wait for posts.
>>26320760...And anime quests are LITERALLY fanfiction as well.
>>26320815Sometimes they try to just be set in the same universe and ignore all the major characters of the anime, but this guy is just straight up HURR DURR IM DA BAMAN. Even all those shitty fatestay quests usually have you as someone other than Shirou.
Mechengineer and House Karban quest where art thou?
>>26320859>I find this idea unattractive therefore it's retardedHe's a decent QM and people are enjoying it. Get the fuck over it, no one is forcing you to play these things.
>>26320859The most popular quest on /tg/ is HURR DURR IM DA ICHIGO.
>>26320596>Harribel>cute>not distant and untouchable>no terrorousalI can't schlick to this.
>>26320929Popularity =/= good.
>>26320913Yeah, I find it kinda dumb. That was sort of the whole point of the post. I know that the Batman guy is always complaining about not having enough viewers and was asking what folks wanted out of his quest, so I gave him my opinion and my reason for not participating. I never told him to stop running it. Looking back, I will admit that I worded>we really don't need itBadly, but what I meant by that is -I- personally wasn't interested in it and here is my reason why.Sorry for the miscommunication and by all means keep doing your thing, just giving my two cents.
>>26320980What, you think Bleach Quest is bad?
>>26320943There was plenty of terrorousal around the time she cut off our arm and most of our leg.That was pretty terrifying. There just hasn't been a chance for her to dismember anyone since then.
>>26320980There's nothing wrong with Bleach Quest. And considering all the plot twists that's way more vulnerable to metagaming. I mean really? "Everyone already knows how BAts and his rogues gallery operate"? You know who else knows that? Batman.
>>26321005No problem. I probably over reacted as well.
>>26321025Well, too bad 30+ people disagree with you every night.
>>26320929I was under the impression that Bleach Quest was purposely playing itself for laughs.But I haven't read it, so I dunno.
>>26321095It is for the most part. Over time some people get a little too invested for that to be completely accurate.
>>26321095Its so serious, the QM showed up to bitch about waifufags and brag about how he was gonna fluster their butts with his SO SAD stick or something.
>>26321183That wasn't actually the QM. I'm starting to think that was just some prank to freak people out. I mean "waifu fags are getting out of control"? Doesn't get more broad and general than that.
>>26321095>>26321134I don't follow it specifically because I'd only be in it to bone Harribel. Because that's the only thing that kept me paying attention to the series for a little while there before I lost interest again.I wouldn't exactly be the best participant.
>>26321217Cosgrove loves to avatarfag as that cat thing from Pull Magic Mydicka, and that fucking bear thing from Tumbljrpg
>>26321238Neither of those were in the post though.
>>26320457Don't write actual dialogue. Just have paraphrase through narration, with the occasional quotation for emphasis or comedic effect.>The professor adjusts his glasses and calmly states that your plan is not going to work.>The paladin and the sorceress bicker back and forth with mounting vitriol. The gist of it seems to be that the former is "a narrow-minded godfellator" and that the latter is "a demonbuggering whore." You get the feeling that you should direct their attention elsewhere.
>>26321238All fucking QMs like to use Coobie when they are posting vaguely ominous questions.This proves nothing.
>>26321289>All fucking QMs like to use Coobie when they are posting vaguely ominous questions.Which is the dumbest meme.
>>26321273>telling, not showing
>>26321289I am so fucking sick of it. "OH MAN I MAEK U ROLL DICE HOW SINISTER AM I and here's another waifu BUT BE CAREFUL I SWER ON ME MUM ILL REK U M8"Shadowmaster is particularly guilty of that shit.
>>26321183That was obviously <QM>.Just like that one shitposter in <thread> who was totally anon. <QM> Is cancer on this board.Feel free to insert whatever quest runner you want in <QM>. Perfect copypasta.
I'm still enjoying the shit storm that is Meta Game QuestCan that get riled up again?
>>26321311I would hardly call it a meme.It's getting a little old now, but it doesn't really do any harm.
>>26321289>all faggot QMs Quests are okay. Waifu quests like Lamia Daughter and Bleach Quest should be permabannable offenses.
>>26321332It's perfectly acceptable to not actually write spoken dialogue.
>>26320929The vast, disgusting amount of ripoff quests on this board is awful.Tgchan may be elitist as fuck but at least they understand this sort of thing isn't acceptable.
>>26321349Its totally a meme, seeing as its use is entirely memetic.
>>26321435Tgchan is furry as fuck.
>>26321435You act as if their original settings are not terrible drivel.
>>26321333I've made my thoughts on his fearmongering very clear in the past, both in these generals and in the Shadow Quest threads themselves, and it still rustles my jimmies. Though I would like to note that he has been much better about it in the last few threads.Though that may just be because it's all narrative, lately. Not that I am complaining, it's much better than paranoia fuelled screaming matches.Also, FEELBERG soon fellow anon.
>>26321337>Can that get riled up again?Is the shitstorm still going on in those threads?
>>26321355Waifu is a meaningless buzzword for the most part.You do not decide what people should enjoy.
Hey just wanted to point out a Quest I got started: Destined Children Quest. Where you and several others get pulled into an alternate dimension that is beginning to fall apart at the seams. >>26315384
>>26321488The QM still hasn't decided, or at least announced, if he's continuing because of all the hate he got, undeservedly as he sees itHasn't been another quest since last night, so the discussion has invaded here
>>26321337Which meta game quest?Because Code Arthur fucked up eight ways from sunday in the last CGMGQ, and then the namefags and tripfags started circling overhead while he was patronising his playerbase and bludgeoning his quest to death with hamfisted plot twists.
>>26320886>House Karban quest where art thou?All signs point to "cancelled". He's following Harrock and Iron and Hate, but no longer has the time to do Karban and his tale justice.I'd love to be proven wrong, but we did have the (extraordinarily censored) correspondence, and I talked to the Anon who's been in touch with him.
>>26321435I tried to like their things.I tried to get into them with an open mind.In the end, I simply couldn't. tgchan's magical realm is just too magical for me.
>>26321435there's nothing wrong with 'fan fiction' or a 'ripoff' (your words) if it's done well and entertaining. Quests aren't high literature, they don't need to be 'original' or even well written all they need to do is entertain.The idea that they should be something else just to suit you is rather presumptuous, I bet you'd jump all over a '40k' quest and that's honestly one of the least original things ever.
It's hilarious that the trolls have taken to just taking random posts and going 'Hey everybody, [QM I don't like] said this!'Maybe not even random posts. Maybe they're posting it and replying to it
>>26321562yes, that oneAlthough I don't know what you mean by patronizing his playerbaseAnd the only plot twist was an offered do over, which everyone panicked and took
>>26321585Don't you dare talk shit about Boone Quest.
>>26321620I said nothing about boone quest being bad or anything else. I merely pointed out that it may not exactly be /original/. and. thats. okay.This thread is in some serious need of Mr.Rogers
>>26321609Sitting back and laughing at how smart he was and how dumb his playerbase was because LOL YOU GEASSED YOURSELF DUMMIES, HOW DID YOU NOT WORK THAT OUT, HAHAHA NO PLOT ARMOUR FOR YOU.It was just all around a pretty sad state of affairs.
>>26321332But "telling" through the eyes and voice of another character(the protagonist) is just another form of showing. It just shows you something different than what proper dialogue would have.It's time to graduate elementary school, anon.
>>26321548>undeservedly as he sees itWhat a faggot.
>>26321467And the /tg/ quest scene is /a/ as fuck.
>>26321686>this guy said something about that QM, he must be a faggotNice samefag.
>>26320213Yup, that is what I was saying.
>>26321699If I had to choose, I'd rather drown in /a/ than furry.
>>26321673Oh come on, that was LITERALLY his third postThe playerbase consistently manages to fuck up reading. He had to relink them to his posts to show that they chose the redo instead of having it forced
>>26321699Personally, that still makes me prefer /tg/.Personal taste, I guess and all that.
>>26321672See, the 40k universe is far vaster and can fit a lot more, and Boone Quest has original characters. Compare to Bleach Quest, in which the players are playing Ichigo, following the main plot line of Bleach fighting Aizen, except faster.One is clearly more original than the other here.
>>26321699Yup. Guess why I'm still here?
>>26320859>Sometimes they try to just be set in the same universeAnd when they don't even try that they rape the setting and butcher the characters to hell and back.Strike Witches and Girls und Panzer are clear examples.
>>26321585I'm not that anon, but there are a lot of things wrong with ripoff quests. They're lazy, most of them tend to use the same characters or plots from the actual thing they're ripping off.I mean, if you want something exactly like something in an established setting, then fucking READ THE BOOK/COMIC/MANGO/ WATCH THE SHOW/MOVIE/ANIMU. They always tend to be the same exact thing!
>>26321770Being more original than Bleach Quest isn't that original. Nor is either of them bad because they aren't original.
>>26321585Fuck you, Commissar Quest is leagues ahead of most quests. And its funny you should single out 40K when the setting is literally built from the ground up for roleplaying in and expansive enough for you to destroy entire solar systems without upsetting the lore. Next time, try choosing a setting that doesnt just have one, but 5 different roleplaying games made for it, not even taking into account all the different wargame subvariants it has like Necromunda, Space Hulk, Gorkamorka, etc.
>>26321795Eh, guess we cannot see eye to eye on this matter. Guess that's that, then.
>>26321502No, I don't, although I'd sure like to. For Christ's sake, we have an actual Bleach Quest that is based exactly on the anime. What the fuck is it doing on /tg/?
>>26321795>they always tend to be the same exact thingThe entire point of those is to see how it would've gone if the MC did something different.
>>26321673>NO PLOT ARMOUR FOR YOU.He took plot armor because it doesn't mean anything anymore.He likes yanking on chains
>>26321585>waaaah 40kFor fuck's sake, anons. Lose the hateboner. Believe it or not, there are some of us that enjoy both quests AND 40k. And there are probably many anons that hate both quests AND 40k.You're just giving people more reason to dislike questfags.
>>26321743>>26321751Meh, its still like choosing whether to drown in shit or to drown in bloody shit.
>>26321745His goal as a QM is to make things clear enough that the playerbase can make a well informed decision. This did not happen because the playerbase had no fucking idea what was going on. Who's fault is this?
>>26321813In the end, it's the journey that counts. I agree.
>>26321720Take off the tinfoil.
>>26321844It's a quest.
>>26321795>They're lazy, most of them tend to use the same characters or plots from the actual thing they're ripping off.But are they *entertaining* because that's the only thing they need to do, is entertain.>>26321827I wasn't calling out any quest in particular, but 40k in and of itself is a mass of tropes and stereotypes - it's not exactly original... It doesn't need to be either.>>26321859You're missing the point. Calling out 40k on being unoriginal doesn't mean I hate it.
>>26321860I don't feel that way, but I respect your opinion.
>>26321585>>26321859Why are questfags so antagonistic to 40K, anyways?
>>26321860I think the bloody shit is more likely to give you AIDS.
>>26321672That image is amazing. Gleefully stolen, with my thanks.
>>26321854THEN WHY WAS HE SURPRISED WHEN HIS AUDIENCE THREW A FITGenerally, if you make your audience jump through pointless hoops straight into a bucket of shit, they are going to complain, and they are going to be very loud about it.
>>26321888/a/ does quests now.
>>26321860Guess it can't be helped…
>>26321918It does? Do they have a dice system?
>>26321903Because 40k is one of the loudest factions of unfunny retards on the board. There was literally someone who tried to revive the 'omg stairs!!! SQUAD BROKEN' meme earlier.
>>26321903Because the militant idiots among us see it as another 'camp' to be compared to our own and used as a scapegoat.It's a retarded mob mentality thing.
>>26321860Drowning is drowning, whether it be in shit or water.
>>26321471Yeah, he's calmed down lately and I think the point finally sunk in on what he was doing to the playerbase with those comments and with the Archonium he's effectively kind of fixed the problem he caused with it.
So I tried to peddle an idea on Anonkun to try to work with someone, but apparently they hate that. Anyone here want to work together with someone? I want to make a quest that crosses Dark Souls with Monster Girls.
>>26321937No, but most /a/ quests really only use them as a formality.
>>26321949Pretty much this. For fuck's sake, I don't wanna fight any of you.
>>26321896But going to the "HERPDERP FUCKIN 40kFAGS" is fucking stupid.>>26321903>Why are some questfags so antagonistic to 40k, anyways?FTFY. And the answer is that 40k is (arguably?) the dominant presence on /tg/. The questfags in question probably assume that their detractors are worried about maintaining their grip on the board, when that most likely couldn't be further from the truth.
>>26321904You're still dead from drowning in shit at the end of the day.
>>26321863He didn't move the quest forward until he explained exactly what happened.Heck, the playerbase fucks up reading more often than he fucks up writing. He had to explain about ten times that the quest ended with the Gawain standing next to them>>26321917because that portion of the shitstorm was very quiet and under control.People got riled up because the votes on one post were a fucking mess and he pulled out what he wanted. Then the looked back and ignored the fact that they accepted the redo and tried to blame him for forcing the redo. Then all the people came out of the wood works complaining how they were happy with the ending of the thread before and had no answer for why they didn't vote to reject the redo.Shitstorms are more fun with someone on the other side, stirring it back
>>26321896>but 40k in and of itself is a mass of tropes and stereotypesThis has literally nothing to do with any part of the discussion.
>>26321987What if I learn to swim through shit?
>>26321967>ANOTHER FUCKING MONSTER GIRL QUESTPlease, anon. Don't do this.
>>26321962By law of popularity, the more popular something is the more likely it is to attract shitty people.
>>26321967>ANOTHER FUCKING MONSTER GIRL QUESTPlease, anon. Do this.
>>26321997You are being very quick to blame the playerbase for it's failure to read, rather than the QM for his failure to write.
>>26322004>x isn't original>neither is y but I imagine if it were posted you'd gobble it up with an entirely different opinion
>>26322008But I love them because they're fun.>>26322030I'm more of a background work kind of guy. I can do all the tedious work that comes with running a quest for someone who feels confident at writing.
>>26322007Then you become the shit.Then anon was /a/utist.
>>26321967Tell me more. If you wanna collab on.Anonkun don't just ask anyone and preferably ask via PM rather than public chat. People that are fairly okay include /a/nonymous magica, Face.and Storyteller.
>>26321949I hate the whole 'Us or Them!' thing that has arisen on /tg/ recently. Can't we all just stick to what we personally enjoy and leave everything else alone?
>>26321967Define "work together."
>>26322078NO!! We /v/ now.
>>26322033If everyone is on the same side, the argument dies down. Devil's Advocate and what not.Exactly where did the QM fail to write? There was the typo near the end, but that doesn't matter much.Wanting to redo the battle and offering that to the playerbase should be acceptable QM behavior
>>26322078but anon. heresy grows from idleness!
>>26322049But there are already too many monster girl quests on /tg/. Why not just masturbate to someone's elses fapfic instead bothering to write your own?
>>26322047But thats not what he said at all. We are comparing the scope of settings and how much the quest in question fucks with the lore/canon of the series/setting at hand.Boone Quest and Commissar Quest, for example, has you roleplaying as wholly original characters doing their own thing in wholly original corners of the 40K setting, a setting literally built with roleplay in mind.Bleach Quest, on the other hand, has you roleplaying as the MC of a rather restrictive anime setting, one designed to tell a single story at that.
>>26322104>>26322078Don't worry anons, together, we can survive this summer.
>>26322078>recently"Edition wars" ring any bells?Us VS them is incredibly prominent on the internet, and /tg/ has never been an exception.
>>26322068Well, basically, the idea is that it's a Souls style universe that features monstergirls. I have a pastebin with the kind of introduction you'd get from any Souls series game already set up if that would be easier for you to read.>>26322087I build fluff, write crunch, keep track of niggling little details, and basically do all the unfun tedium, because that's the stuff that's fun to me. The writer would be responsible mainly for, well, the part that's usually regarded as fun: namely the writing and interacting with the players.
>>26321903A lot of the arguments used against quests also apply to 40k, mostly the prevalence on the board and the front page (When it was relevant) and their butting into unrelated threads. So some people started comparing them as a counter to those arguments, which was then magnified to an "Us vs. Them" mentality
We interrupt this QTG to bring you a special announcement from Lord Licorice.>I realize there are a number of people that really despise quest threads, and after cleaning literally hundreds of non-starters out of the archives, I can certainly see where you're coming from. However, by mis-archiving quests with shitty labels, you're only serving to accomplish two things: one, you're taking all of thirty seconds out of my day to fix the tags, and two, you're training quest creators to immediately archive their threads to avoid mis-labeling, which just exacerbates the issue. Post-It Quest is a prime example, it had all of twenty replies, but was archived as soon as the author could refresh 4chan after posting it. The only way you're going to stop quest threads on /tg/ is to stem the tide at the source. Shitting up the archive isn't helping anyone's cause. For the record, I am not, have never been, and, saints preserve me, will never be a janitor or moderator on 4chan. I have no power, authority or influence to stop quest threads from existing on /tg/; I'm just an archivist. By definition, by the time it reaches me, it's already too late. You're going to need to change the community's mind, and that can't be done with goofy labeling.
>>26322115>restrictive anime settingIt isn't that restrictive. I mean the entire point of the thing was to see how much we could fuck over canon without metagaming.
>>26322078Tabletop RPGs have trained us to party up and slay people of different alignments than our own.Joking aside, yes, we can and should. The thing is, you (and us and them) have to be willing to be the first to disengage. Try to calm down hotheads on both sides whenever problems flare up, don't start things, don't be a dick, and remember to be courteous and inviting, even when you want to smash the face of the person you're talking with.
>>26322141I like this guy
>>26322139>A lot of the arguments used against quests also apply to 40kI have never seen one that legitimately fits as well as questfags claim. Instead, it feels like questfags just try to deflect arguments into bitching about 40K because they hate 40K.
>>26322114Because I don't want to make a fapfic? I like monster girls because they are cute and fun to me. I also like Demon and Dark Souls. I want to mix them because it is a /tg/ tradition to mix things you like.
>>26322141I dont think the misarchive trolls honestly cared about LLs woes or even stopping quests. His speech is kinda pointless, albeit admirable.
>>26322148The fact that these generals attract trolls like flies to shit doesn't help the conflicts either.
>>26322196No, it isn't. However, it is a tradition to turn anything involving monstergirls into a fapfic. If you believe otherwise, you are guaranteed to be disappointed.
>>26322235>No, it isn't.Yes, it is. Almost every piece of original content on /tg/ is just slapping two or more things relevant to their creator's interest together.
>>26322188There's almost always as many or more 40k threads as quest threads. For that matter, there's probably more MtG threads than quest threads on average.
>>26322251But 40K also has a lot more board relevance than quests by the sheer number of wargames and rpgs in the setting.
>>26322235Before /tg/ dissolved into a huge pile of tribalistic faggotry, it was also tradition to make cute, mascot versions of whatever thing you liked.
>>26322251And generally the 40k threads tend to be of much worse quality.
>>26321355based on what you call a "waifu quest", I feel I can ignore your opinions from here on our.
>>26322250If it involves monstergirls, it's all but certain to turn into fap fodder. This guy doesn't want that, so the best solution is to keep the monstergirls out of it. >>26322278It was always like that. It just used to be more subtle, that's all.
>>26322280I disagree. The shittier 40K threads are about on par with your average quest.
>>26322284Lamia Quest is pretty terrible, dude, I gotta agree with the other anon.
>>26322280>>26322313Can't we all just agree to ignore eachother?
>>26322273That's Entirely >Opinions
>>26322303>subtlelol, what? Those are some rose-tinted glasses bro.
>>26322313>>26316936HAY GUYZ, SLOWPOKE HERE, SO FAHNNY MEE MEE FROM LONG AGO, STILL FAHNNY RIGHT?Quests are totally worse.
40kfags, please ignore the autismal cunts who keep trying to start shit with you. They don't represent the majority of us questfags.
>>26322353Man it's true what they say about QTGs on weekdays. I mean this thread has been trollbait since the OP.
>>26322325Not liking it is one thing, but if Lamia Child Quest is a 'waifu' quest then so is every single one with any kind of love interest, making the term stupid since you could just say 'quests with romance suck balls' instead and use waifu quest for quests that actually focus on those elements.
>>26322137Here's that pastebin http://pastebin.com/Mfa7GBPn
>>26322344We get it, you dont like a single thread made by a shitposter.Meanwhile, literally the highest rated quest currently running is anime fanfiction harem shit.
>>26322383LQ is pretty waifutastic, brosefeline.
It looks like there's some cunt making really, really shitty 40k threads right now. I'll give 40k a pass on these because there are shitty quests that are made by trolls entirely for the purpose of making quests in general look shitty.
>>26322392Nah, it's really not bromecles
>>26322303The monstergirls are just in it for fun and because I like them. The majority of monsters are still, well, monsters. It also kind of ties into part of the lore I wrote.
>>26322388But the majority of 40k threads are like that.Bleach quest is actually entertaining however, otherwise people wouldn't follow it. But hey lets throw buzzwords at it until they stick, because the correct combination of words will totally negate all the fun people are having with it.
>>26322333I'm sorry, I didn't realize every single quest on this board had its own fleshed out rpg book. Maybe you can direct me to them.
>>26322388>harem shitThat's a total exaggeration. Also please stop responding to the trolls trying to start shit.
>>26322141Ah, I read that. Glad to see LL is still awesome.>>26322388ENTERTAINING anime fanfiction, and if you think it's actually bad then I invite you to go to FFN and discover what bad fanfiction really looks like.
>>26322422>having books means you're original
>>26322409>But the majority of 40k threads are like that.Oh gee, lookit dem >opinions.Besides, its a well known fact that /a/, /co/ and /v/ typically use those Imperium vs. X threads to talk about offtopic shit.
>>26322407No offense anon, but this is sounding more and more terrible with every post you make. I'd be happy to be proven wrong, of course.
>>26322407But the thing is, they will be turned into fapbait whether you like it or not. So ask yourself if you really want that to happen.
>>26322406Whatever you say, brolev.
>>26322459I'm glad we can agree to disagree, brobachov
>>26322435>originalOh look, its that word I never used in my argument. I said board relevance, shit-for-eyes.
>>26322446I refuse to be daunted.>>26322439I posted the background lore here >>26322384It doesn't really talk about monster girls, save to say that Demihumans were created.
>>26322435Okay I'm not even defending 40k but you're clearly a troll, originality isn't even what they're talking about.
>>26322388don't take the ratings too seriously. Quests get downvote bombed all the time, and my favorite quest recently got an upvote bot voting for it.It really ruins the point of the votes.
>>26322472Kinda hypocritical to post that when bitching about someone elses fun.
Just a heads up- /a/ says that they are now accepting animu-related quests again. So if you are running an anime-themed quest, consider moving it over there, as you are much less likely to run into shitposters.
>>26322483>Having books on the /ideas/ board means you're more relevant than other things that people have /ideas/ about
>>26322434>>26322409Fun is bad and you should FEEL bad for having it.
>>26322422>You need a book to have an RPG!>Homebrews aren't allowed!
>>26322487Well you should be. /d/'s going to latch onto it like a fucked up parasite and will turn what you though was a good idea into something truly horrible. Get out while you still have a chance.
>>26322508>/ideas/Just because thats what /tg/ is in practice doesnt mean thats what its supposed to be. So yes, having more board relevant material makes you more board relevant.>>26322525Show me those quest homebrews you so totally have. The only one I can think of is that Lost Future thing and I dont think it ever made it out of Alpha. Right now, CATastrophe is more board relevant than most quests.
>>26322422>>26322525to have a similar argument as this poster but more polite:I've had way more fun and discussion on /tg/ talking about settings and worldbuilding than specific gamesystems. I argue the wealth of different settings in quests is the draw and the thing that makes them board relevant.Likewise, nobody would be talking about 40K if it was a pure game devoid of setting. It's the setting that generates the discussion.
>>26322508>/ideas/ boardI'm not following this argument so I don't know what side you're on or what the sides are, but holy fuck no. /tg/ is not the "/ideas/" board.Fuck. That is the dumbest thing I've read all night.>HEY GUYS I GOT AN /IDEA/ FOR A PORN! LETS ALL POST PORN!>WOW ANON WHAT A GREAT /IDEA/!
>>26322565MercWorld is making its own FATE module.
>>26322582>implying MercWorld is a quest
>>26322504>everyone on this thread. and this board, at that matter.
>>26322505Huh? /a/ has a lot more posters period than /tg/. Unless the average /a/non is a saint, there's going to be more shitposters there by sheer dint of numbers, and that's before you realize that the average denizen of /tg/ has a better not-shitposter-to-shitposter ratio than most boards.Plus, I doubt that all of /a/ is happy to have quests again, so the anti-quest brigade of /a/ will be forming up as more move over there.
guys can I ask that we all tone down the>GREENTEXT CAPITALIZATIONplease? It seems to really make things escalate quickly.
>>26322582MercWorld also despises any and all quest affiliation and claims to have driven questfags out.>>26322573see 26320248
>>26322573>i dont understand what actual offtopic is so I'll just strawman instead of reading board rules.
>>26322628Fucked that up.>>26320248
>>26322628wait, does this mean that civ games aren't quests either?Because they also generally deny quest affiliation.
>>26322499Oooh, which quest? I've been looking to get one of those for my quest.
>>26322384Where are the monster girls?
>>26322670why would you want an upvotebot on your questIt ruins all the previous positive votes you had gotten.
>>26322663No, they're quests by definition, the OPs are just smart enough to realize that being branded with the quest label will drag them into shit.
>>26322694Yeah, but getting that gold highlight is oh so arousing.
>>26322550As long as said anon avoids sticking penises on everything they wont really bother.
Ha, Meta Game Quest : Code Geass is over
>>26322634Nice word-salad you've got there. No idea how it relates to my post.>>26322628>>26322637Lovely.>>26322663MercWorld is a setting that /tg/ has been building. There was talk of running a quest IN MercWorld, but there's been talk of running a quest in every setting.
>>26322663Man, I dont fuckin know. What I do know is that MercWorld is gonna have a FATE module before it has a quest unless the whole thing crumbles under the weight of its own autism. Even then, the quest will likely be sagebombed by buttflustered anons from the MercWorld threads who hate quests.
>>26322726>There was talk of running a quest IN MercWorldActually, MercWorld was an anons idea to utilize /tg/s love of worldbuilding to build him a setting for a psuedo-FF8 quest he wanted to run. It kinda backfired on him in the most delicious of ways.>>26322720I'm gonna need a link/citation for that.
>>26322678They're Demihumans, monsters given a human mind and body. Naturally, only about half of em are female, so they're not all monster girls.
>>26322726so... why are we talking about mercworld here if it's not a quest?
>>26322727I believe in mechanicsfag being able to get that module out.
>>26322637I'm a part of MercWorld, though I should probably write some more stuff but I've been busy today and yesterday, but I am a part of it.If someone wants to run a MercWorld quest they should feel free to. It's a setting, it's meant to be used, to provide a place for GMs/QMs and Players to set their adventures and have fun with. I like the setting we've made so far, though I'm obviously baised as I see my own work in it. If someone wants to run it on IRC with the Fate Module they should go right ahead, someone wants to run it tabletop with their friends, that's not my problem. Hell, I'd follow a MercWorld quest if it happened and it was well written. >>26322756It's a setting, its origins come from a QTG where someone brought up the ideas that led to it, and it's a perfectly acceptable setting for a quest.
>>26322756Because at this point "quest" means whatever the fuck you want it to mean.
>>26322694But seriously, which quest has gotten an upvote bot. I want to know.
>>26322752the archive vote is sitting at -2, well beyond the usual downvotes, and Arthur is quite anal sensitive about the archive votes if you hadn't noticed.He's not going to continueHe's probably lurking this thread right now by the way
>>26322756Because some retarded anon thought it was a great example of a quest with a homebrew system. Even though it has no quest, and afaik it's just a setting and not a system at all.Welcome to /tg/, where the facts are made up and the posts don't matter.
>>26322801mechanicsfag made character generation rules, mapped out special abilities, showed us how to make weapons and vehicles, and has generally been a guy who got shit done. It's a system, though very alpha at the moment.
>>26322780well, I have no proof, but I think Lamia quest did.Before, it was all 12-18ish votes, with the occasional one breeching 20.Then a couple days ago, all the ones under 20 suddenly jumped up to exactly 20.I would have been happy about it, since I quite enjoy the quest, but I am almost certain they are not actual people votes, which ruins it.Of course, I could just be paranoid. People have called me that repeatedly on these generals.
>>26322789>if you hadn't noticed.I hadn't because I don't read his quest. Seeing it fall apart is oddly amusing, though. Sorta like when Ghost Quest almost shitstormed to death.
>>26322792That's kind of surprising. I mean it's popular enough to get up to like 10 on it's own.
>>26322830Most questfags do that for their favorite quest. Despicable, if you ask me.
>>26322828My mistake, though it doesn't make that poster any less retarded for using it as an example of a quest.
>>26322830Hah, yeah- I was noticing how strange it was that it kept getting pushed up to 20.
>>26322856Nope. Because if most did, the votes would all be sitting at LEAST around 100 upvotes.>5 anons all add 20 votes with bots...It's one or maaaaaaybe two people who follow a lot of quests.
>>26322835What happened to Ghost Quest?
>>26322856>most questfagsWhat? If -most- people were doing upvotebots, there would be many, MANY more upvotes.I'm just upset that we gathered one of the few guys running an upvote bot. I know some people were downspamming the quest, but that's no reason to further make pointless the votes with an upvoter.Whatever happened to reading a thing, then giving it a vote based on how you felt?
>>26322068>/a/nonymous magica>Face>StorytellerI'm pretty sure those guys are assholes.
>>26322889And that's just for tiny quests with only a few followers. The "big" quests would easily break 500 votes if everyone who bothered to vote in the archive used a bot.
>>26322889You have the reading comprehension of an inebriated newt.All questfags ensure their favorite quest rests firmly at ~20.
>>26322856Auto-voting?Or voting in general?>>26322726>>26322726I'd still like to see that happen.>>26318978>>26318993>>26319031>>26319146Kinda funny how this turned out now, isn't it?
>>26322925That's just that one quest. Most of the ones that are votespammed end up closer to (But not exactly) 30.
>>26322925so... you mean they vote positively on a thing they read and like?Your moral objection is much less resonant to me now.
I am so sad.My friend, the other man that downvoted all quests with me has gone missing. It used to be such a cheering thing, to see a fresh quest, to downvote it, and note with joy that it hit -2.He was probably misarchiving, and got banned. It's a shame. I feel lonely now.
>>26322928>Kinda funny how this turned out now, isn't it?
>>26322959To give it a buffer against downvoters.>>26322966Spamvoting, dear boy.
>>26322968and you will die lonely you miserable cunt
>>26322898magica is pretty okay. Then again, I've known him a for a bit so w/e.>>26322969That's sad in how funny it is. Or funny in how sad it is. I can't quite make up my mind.>>26322968You remind me of Accelspammer.
>>26322978What exactly is a spamvoter?Do you mean proxy upvoters? Because we already went over how it is not only unlikely but unfeasible for most questfags to be using them.
>>26322968I actually feel bad for this guy. He and his friend probably got more enjoyment out of every single quest than the rest of us.Godspeed, Downvote-kun.
>>26322968I wish you would stop. I would like to give accurate downvotes on episodes of a quest I didn't particularly like, but then I think of you and upvote, in some vague attempt to cancel you out.I have no idea how many other people do the same, but I know I would have downvoted a lot more personally if you didn't exist.
>>26323016CLEARLY nothing can be enjoyed by more than 12 people at a time, Anon. Clearly.
>>26323016It seems to me that there's only one "full time" upvote spammer and one "full time" downvote spammer. I saw a quest thread that was at +3... After 70 something votes.It was a one-shot quest posted in the off hours with no particularly special features that would have earned it more legitimate votes in either direction.
>>26323050Honestly, I upvoted a couple threads after checking the total number of votes simply to balance out their faggotry.
>>26323061Looking into a typical quest gives that impression. Especially when a quest ends up at +20-30 after like 173 votes.
>>26323050I can only give one downvote. It's a lot like spitting in a tornado. It doesn't mean much, but it makes me feel better. And it made me feel very happy when someone else was there spitting with me.
>>26323090exactly. If they would just stop the faggotry, I wouldn't have to upvote to even them out.Stop drawing the neutrals into your conflict, damnit! I just want balance and accuracy in my censuses and votes.
>>26323096I would much prefer if you gave downvotes on things you read and not just EVERYTHING. Since that kind of invalidates the point of a downvote.
>>26323096But anon, think of the people who are upvoting. They're with you just as much as the other downvoter was.
>>26323090>>26323103>>26323111Consequently, I downvote for the exact same reason.
>>26323112Why would he read quests he didn't like? Thats just dumb.
>>26323140I'm all the time downvoting episodes of quests I read that were worse than the average for that quest.Or at least, I used to, before this upvote/downvote drama.
>>26323067>+3... After 70 something votes.>>26323092>+20-30 after like 173 votes.>>26323125>>26323111>>26323103>>26323096>>26323090The ride... never ends...>>26322141Okay, my respect for him just improved tremendously.
>>26323002>magica is pretty okay. Then again, I've known him a for a bit so w/e.Could you find out if he'd be interested? Actually hold up on that while I proofread my premise/intro thing first.
>>26322925Shadow Quest is a popular quest. It gets around 20 votes a thread with a few really good ones breaching 30 and two that reached 50. SM's twitter also has 49 followers, which means that there is at least 49 people who play his quest but there's probably more(I don't follow his twitter for example, just keep the page open in a tab). If anything, it gets less votes from it's followers then it should. I don't really believe in this upvote bot conspiracy for all the popular quests.
>>26323140>not reading things you dislike to give better criticismsBut how do you argue in an informed manner if you don't read things you dislike?
I love how balkanized the whole quest scene has become. It is...delicious.
>>26323187there's not a bot conspiracy, but it's obvious when a quest catches a case of the upvotes. I'm really sad about it happening.
>>26323189After you read enough to formulate a well-rounded opinion, you need not torture yourself further.
>>26323114No they're not. They erase whatever me and my friend did. It was a nice little thing, when we could see the effect of what we did. Though, it was short lived. And I even felt bad some times, seeing quests that never had a chance to become something more. I just targeted the big quests, the ones that would pull down the big audiences, that would inevitably go gold. It was nice to see, even if for a moment, Lamia Quest or Bleach Quest, or MGNQ or whatever be -2 for a bit. Sometimes we could even make them only purple.Not possible any more though.
>>26323190Balkanized Quest Community Quest when?
>>26323207But what if their argument has a subtlety you missed?
>>26323210Aw man, now I really feel bad for this little guy. Did you even get to talk to your downvote friend?
>>26323210But without them, you and downvote-kun couldn't have formed such happy memories.
>>26323210The times they are a changing.
>>26322409so what your saying is "My FUN > Your Fun"
>>26323190It is pretty funny yeah. Would be able to enjoy it better if I weren't neck deep in it. Most of the friction should be over in a month or two, when school starts again.
>>26322409>Bleach quest is actually entertainingShit taste detected.
>>26323257I think he's highlighting the absurdity of claiming one thing isn't allowed and is bad and the other is allowed and is good, when they are both allowed and both fun.But don't mind me, I'm just an idort.
>>26323268>implying the ride ever ends
>>26323210>we only targeted the big onesBull fucking shit. Every time I check a quest archive regardless of size it always started off with -2 votes. Even ones that had just started and had like 3 people total playing them.
>>26322409>Bleach quest is actually entertaining however, otherwise people wouldn't follow it.Shitty 40K threads are actually entertaining however, otherwise people wouldn't make those threads and they wouldn't max out post limit with regularity.
>>26323210I know!We should make... DOWNVOTE QUEST. In which anon first downvotes threads he doesn't like in the archive, until the archive bans his IP range. Then he has to adventure around the world, finding new IPs to downvote from, until finally, he arrives at LL's mansion, complete with robo-butlers and laser turrets, beat the hell out of LL, and finally make his way into the website proper, with admin control, and set all quest threads permenantly at -999.And then, only then, can he get an erection.
>>26323257So what you're trying to do is restart an argument from a 30 minute old post.
>>26322068>>26322137>>26322384That looks pretty okay, thank you.>>26323002>>26323173Also busy as fuck.
>>26323268This is the new normal, friend. It only gets worse from here.
>>26323287>>26322409/tg/ I need to level with you hereAt some point you have to acknowledge that sometimes people like things that you personally think are shit. You have to live with it.
Any one know what happed to Takistan quest?It was fun being kebab.
>>26323306Thats the point I was making with my response post.BQ is shit, though. He needs to accept that.
>>26323306Ignore it. These threads are full of trolls trying to start shit.
>>26323304actually I've been noticing things getting more reasonable and calm as of late. I like to think the balkanization is toning down some. But it could be the latest spree of janitor reports and archive changes have simply hidden and temporarily banned the disruptive members, who will come flooding back.
>>26323292>not making it about lonely-kun's tragic, solitary treks through the land of Supptage, ending with a tearful reunion with downvote-kun which may or may not be a hallucinationDownvoted.
>>26323173I dunno, maybe.Proofread your thing, then join #shquest @ Rizon.net>>26323292Secret final boss: Woxxy. Break into the Foolz archive and derpleet ALL quests from the servers.
>>26323331I have noticed the opposite. Arguments and QTGs are increasing in frequency and tenacity, and some quests are falling apart at the seams.Hell, some questfags are even attacking other quests for being "too 40K".
>>26323300>Also busy as fuck.I'm assuming that you're a person who can speak with authority on that subject. I guess I'll have to look elsewhere for a partner.>>26323353I have it proofread a little better, probably a few wording errors still. Looks like it won't be that easy, though.
>>26323318Your point is simultaneously that you accept people will like things you think are shit, AND that you have to make him accept the thing he likes is shit?If you'll excuse me, such directly contradictory statements make me believe >>26323329
>>26323236No. I'll never know who he is. It's better this way though.>>26323240I don't know. I suppose in a sense, that's true. If it wasn't for the ridiculousness of seeing all these constant golden threads, and having a brief moment where we knocked them down to purple, I wouldn't have made that connection.But on the other hand, all of our efforts were for naught. And I can't defend him if he was indeed the misarchiver. I found some of his antics amusing, but he had to have known he was doomed for doing such a thing. Now I downvote alone.>>26323244I suppose. I'll try not to change for now.
>>26323351But anon, downvote-kun is gone now. He is misarchiving Valhalla now, for he is a true warrior. He dared stand against the tyranny of the Licorice Lord and was felled in glorious vote combat, but his memory lives on in all of us, those who dare to ride the winds with a free heart and nothing but a downvote at our sides.
>>26323412He never loved you, anon. You deserve better.
>>26323376but "too 40k" has been in existence since at LEAST magical girl noir quest, if not earlier, which happened way back.And there are more QTGs which stick around longer, but the arguments seem more formulaic, and disperse quicker.Also, I don't know what you mean when you say some quests are falling apart at the seams. Quests have always had a bad case of dying, and I fear every time an author of one I am watching goes missing for any amount of time, because it could mean the quest abruptly died.
>>26323393Sorry, the second part was meant to be a joke, but I fucked up the delivery and didn't make it obvious enough.I do legitimately dislike BQ, though, but I agree that it has every right to be here.
>>26323279Most, not all. The tension is always going to be here, but fewer people on 4chan total means fewer people get argumentative with.>>26323397In a nutshell. Though to be honest, I kind of like watching the back and forth. Feels energetic+passionate, like gaming should be. Could stand to be less caustic, but I'll take it.
>>26323397And its worse than last summer.
>>26323397It's hard to /not/ believe in it at this moment.>>26323390>I'm assuming that you're a person who can speak with authority on that subject. I guess I'll have to look elsewhere for a partner.Well, he's writing a novel and two -three quests at once. That much is known.>I have it proofread a little better, probably a few wording errors still. Looks like it won't be that easy, though.If things weren't hard they wouldn't be as fun.
>>26323444ah, okay. Jokes on the internet happen.You're free to dislike BQ, I probably also dislike it. What is it anyway? Bleach quest? Goddamn. The only way that could be good is if they took "samurai ghostbusters" and RAN with it. In the opposite direction of where the bleach show ran.
>>26323467I had no idea he was that busy. Unless you know any other free guys, I'm back to peddling in QTGs
>>26323487>samurai ghostbustersBill Murray opens up a Tokyo Branch of the Ghostbusters Franchise and helps train the newbies. Shenanigans ensue.
>>26323461>>26323397did you know: you can reduce the effects and severity of summer by 50-70% by not mentioning or acknowledging it?
>>26323487It did, before inexplicably going back to the canon rails.
>>26323422...Well, shit, now I want to run this.Maybe with Hikikomori RPG's rules.
>tfw you want to do a dwarven drawquest but can't draw consistently to save your lifeOn the right is my attempt to stay consistent. Giving myself a timelimit to my drawings would yield more useful results, I just keep focusing on details otherwise.What would /tg/ want to see in a dwarven drawquest? I'm still in the middle of working on the premise and possible scenarios.
>>26323487That's kind of what happened. The entire thing is dedicated to destroying the plot.
>>26323521More like 30-40%
>>26323535Yeah except canon is now some weird half baked time travel shit. I have nothing against it but it's getting really weird.
>>26323542>implying anyone gives a fuck about consistencyIt'd give your quest an added flavor. Just do it, anon.
>>26323511Right now he's just running one because reasons.Anyways, who did you ask on the site already?>>26323520I read that as Billy Mays and... THE VISION WAS GLORIOUS.
>>26323592Apparently I did the stupid thing and just threw it out in the wind. I forgot that anonkun is nothing like /tg/ and it seems they hate running with other people's idea.
>>26323575well, exact figures vary depending on the severity of summer and vulnerability to sunburn.>>26323520Do they hook up a proton pack to a samurai sword?
>>26323619Going by the shitposting triggered by people bringing up ideas here the similarity might be greater than you think.
>>26323536I am imagining a gang of wild and free cyberbikers, soaring across the grid and downvoting quests before the Nazimods can catch and ban them. They are led/inspired by the Lone Voter, a man who only ever had one partner before the crazy bastard went out in a blaze of misarchiving, refusing to back down until he was...permabanned. Now, the Lonely Voter downvotes in his honor, and in memory of everything quests have taken from him. Because he believes.He believes in a free /tg/. The free /tg/ that Misarchiver gave his life for.
>>26323679As an avid questfag and hater of the misarchiver and downvoter, I have to say I support this idea.
>>26323679Does he ally with the 40k riders or are they neutral?
>>26323663There's something to be said about that. Of course, /tg/ is very divided on every opinion ever
So, the possibility of a Metal Gear Solid quest was raised earlier, so I wrote the kind of MGS info-dump intro that would be required to make it feel like an entry in the franchise. It's set in early 1972, during the time when early Militaires Sans Frontiers operations were just starting. I'd like to see if it "works".After the end of World War Two, the world was split into two: east and west.This marked the beginning of the era known as the Cold War. The term was coined by George Orwell in 1945 to describe an epoch of “horribly stable” nuclear stalemate, with the constant looming threat of Armageddon preventing the major powers from open warfare.What he neglected to mention was that such a stalemate never meant peace. Barely five years after the treaty was signed with Japan, North Korea and its Communist-backed army poured across the border into South Korea. Between 1950 and 1953, almost one million South Korean civilians and around three quarters of a million allied soldiers became casualties. An unknown number of North Koreans and Chinese joined them, with some figures as high as four million. The Soviets were involved in supplying weapons, experts, and fighter pilots. Everyone at the Pentagon knew it. They could tell by the Russian radio-chatter.And there were no consequences. The Americans suffered embarrassment after embarrassment. In 1960, a U2 was shot down over Soviet Airspace. In 1961, an invasion of Cuba by CIA-backed counter-revolutionaries ended in the Bay of Pigs fiasco. That same year, Soviet scientists tested the Tsar Bomba, the largest atomic weapon detonated to date. In 1962, the USSR and US teetered on the brink of global thermonuclear warfare over a Soviet shipment of missiles and warheads to Cuba. Human civilization itself was threatened by political maneuvering and brinksmanship. (1/2)
>>26323739oh god this is way too long I'm not reading it
>>26323739inb4 ALL CAPS SHITPOSTING.
>>26323739Hold on, let me skip this cutscene.As long as Big Boss beats up a bunch of commies, I'm in.
>>26323750>>26323766>skip cutscenes>punch communists
>>26323679Hmm. Would it be okay if this was alternated with the mundane and grey unpleasant real world that rejects him? The Lone Voter is a hero in the cyberwastes, his partner, the Misarchivist the only one that he could call friend, in both worlds. Then, he disappeared. The Lone Voter fights on, knowing his friend is dead, but fights on in vain to avenge his only comrade that never even knew his name. With intermissions across this crusade showing the Lone Voter's miserable life in meat space. Maybe that would be too too depressing. I'll have to think about this. It'd have to be neon as fuck though, that's all I know.
>>26323750Pretty much.You should probably link it in a pastebin or whatever it is people do, and provide a single paragraph of summary in the first or second post.You have to get /tg/ hooked before they'll start putting in effort.
>>26323715The 40Krusaders run their own racket, a sector of cyberspace where each faction tries to bludgeon the others into submission with their obviously superior lore sticks like the two respawning armies of Battle Creek in Red vs Blue. Sometimes he passes through their territory since questfags hate and fear 40K, but they aint allies by any stretch.
>>26323739Brushfire wars and revolutions raged through the decades in Laos, Angola, the Himalayas, Korea, India and Pakistan, Rhodesia, Libya, South Africa, the Middle East, and Cambodia. The war in Vietnam has raged for years, and the US government has been officially involved since the Gulf of Tonkin incident in 1964. Clemeceau once said that “war is too important to be left to the generals”. But after 25 years of this “Cold War”, you finally realized that he only ever had half the truth. War is undeniably too important to be left to the generals, but it's also too important to be left to the politicians, and to the civilians. None of them knew war the way a soldier knows war. The way YOU know war.And that's why, in 1972, you took the gamble of joining a certain group of elite soldiers in the jungles of South America, led by a living legend...(2/2)
>>26323786I prefer a Tronlike setting, where getting banned is like getting derezzed.
>>26323786Wait people are actually considering doing this? Awesome.
>>26323797>be questfag>like 40k>regularly use it as an argument point to diffuse "too many X type threads!" arguments>people now think I hate 40koops!
>>26323786>>26323679This sounds like an awesome cyberpunk setting. I'd be down.
>>26323679Please don't turn this into a quest.
>>26323781>Skip Cutscene>Punch Terrorist/CommunistThe only way to play Metal Gear.
>>26323750>>26323766>>26323781So basically what you're saying is that /tg/ doesn't have the attention span for a 390-word-long introduction?That's not amenable to this process. 390 words is a FOOTNOTE by MGS standards.
>>26323842Don't call it a quest.
>>26323860is...is that what "mad" looks like to you?
>>26323837It's also like a giant middle finger to the misarchiver. All he did was inspire another quest.
>>26323863yes, but they are very interested in Big Boss CQCing a fool.
>>26323842I dont have the patience or writing pace to quest. If anything, I would just writefag in the honor of your fallen friend.
>>26323811Okay, I'm down. Questers- should the Lone Voter strive against them? Or to prevent too much controversy, should he solely strive against the Tyrant Licorice? On the one hand, it'd be hilarious for the Lone Voter to fight pastiches of famous QMs. On the other hand, that may lead to butthurt.
>>26323863what I'm saying is: get a good quest picture.You'll need it.
>>26323860/vg/, /tg/, goddammit i'm never posting again.
>>26323619I would read a quest about Dark Souls crossed with monster girls.but i am a fag
>>26323883he should obviously be striving against questers, who are currently backed by the despotic regime of Licorice-corp and their archive wageslaves.
>>26323882Well, I guess that's different? I don't know. I'm going to bed.
>>26323883Weaver is the final boss?
>>26323883He should be striving against quests and questors.As to the QMs go to #Ques/tg/enerals and ask the QMs there if they'd be okay if the Lone Voter fought them. There are a few that'd probably be okay with it.
>>26323922>>26323883if you make them metal-gear style wacky bosses, I'm sold.
>>26323911He uncovers the terrible truth! The dread technomancy- what can one vote do against their mechanical vote swarms?
>>26323883The lone voter pities questers, and sees QMs as evil dictators, quests are the opiates of the masses, and QMs are like giant corrupt corporations. Licorice is the corrupt government allowing them to maintain their imbalance of power.
>>26323878Actually, I have plans for the Big Boss to be involved in the very first thread.
>>26323868Is it really though? I mean, his meddling has caused such a deep ripple in your community that you are erecting monuments in honor/dishonor of him. Thats more accolade than any QM will ever get.Besides, he knew enough about most quests to properly misarchive them and I think there was at least two misarchivers out there, the one who just fucked with the name and description but included the right tags and the one who was just a dick.
>>26323863Why should anyone take the time to read, process, and remember all that when they have no idea if your quest will actually be good?The fact that you didn't realize that 400 words of introductory text, and that you're already pointing the finger at /tg/ instead of adapting, are huge warning signs.
>>26323945NOWE MUST BE BIG BOSS
Well, I'm off to create the lone downvoter scenario
Lone Voter Quest is lacking something very important though. Waifus.
>>26323960>The fact that you didn't realize that 400 words of introductory text is not a great ideaFixed for my sleepy, retarded self.
>>26323957/tg/ loves a good narrative. Doesn't matter the source.Besides, there's always >>26323986.
>>26323986The Lone Voter gets off on downvotes. Waifus are meaningless to him.
>>26323982Oh man, if you make a SRR module about two deckers fighting Suptagge Corp, I will download the SHIT out of that.>>26323986'Waifu' is a cyberdrug used to control the masses.
>>26324013The Lone Voter is out to destroy Waifus, high level lieutenants of QMs. No time for love. Only voting.
>>26323957look, his meddling was unpleasant, but the DRAMATIZED version of his meddling, why, it's great!It's like the difference between real british criminals and robin hood.
>>26323986Make other downvoters- your loyal companions in your quest- the waifus. They only get off to downvotes themselves, too.
>>26323982the big boss should be tgchan
>>26324028>'Waifu' is a cyberdrug used to control the masses.Okay, fuck my lieutenant idea, that's even better.
>>26324028>waifu is a cyberdrug used to control the massesOh my got it's perfect.
>>26324028>'Waifu' is a cyberdrug used to control the masses.Yessssss.
>>26324047Every QM insists that their Quest is different, but the Lone Voter knows- doesn't matter the package, it's still 'waifu' and the effects are the same on the poor masses.
>>26324028QMs are drug lords. Questers are junkies. Licorice is the corrupt government official who's secretly controlling it's production.
>>26324046>>26324047A boss fight is white knight waifufag. He knows that the girl of his dreams is just a hallucination, but he doesn't care. His love is still real. He is an honorable warrior.
At that point where you can't tell whether you're making fun of yourself or making fun of the other guy, you find true gold.
>>26324046>>26324047>>26324055>I need more Waifu, man. Don't you see?! It's a hollow existence!>Just one more waifu and I'll be fine. Just one more...You stupid fool. You're overdosing on a lie.>So...tsun...
>>26324089Yes! Also, there needs to be 'Haremend,' a zoned out combat druggy that has the constitution to be on seven different varieties of Waifu at once. Do you have him and White Knight duke it out to weaken the two, or do you fight them separately in fear of the strength that the survivor would have?
>>26324084I think its more like corporate issued soma for the wage slaves.
>>26324089That's the first boss. After that they become relatively weak as we level up and move on to the real villains: the QMs who deal it, and finally Licorice the manufacturer himself.
>>26324137Like Ravage in Spider-Man 2099? So licorice is a CEO?
>>26324166of course licorice runs a sinister and greedy corporation
The Lone Voter has to be smart to beat these questers. They don't play fair. They keep those dice rolling and rolling and rolling, until they get a 20. You gotta hit them fast, before they get that 20. Only good thing about it is that they get so distracted and enamored of the numbers that blink up as they pull that lever. But if they get that 20? Oh man, there's no stopping them. It doesn't have to make sense- cut off their arms, feed 'em in to an Autosage, >imply them through the heart, if they get that 20, it's over.
>>26324140In Cyberpunk, the Lieutenants are often more dangerous than the actual boss. Therefore, White Knight Waifufag is the last barrier between you and the Quest Syndicate CEO. He faces you on equal terms, not bothering to dodge or parry any blow. Whereas he used to be filled with fear and uncertainty in daily life, with his Waifu, he's not afraid of anything anymore.
>>26324177So the QMs run subsidiary corporations. They all claim to sell different products but we know they're all the same thing with a different label. What are Civ fags though?
>>26324206Can we have a tragic scene where he says last farewells to said waifu? Whether by vidscreen or implant, I don't really care.
>>26324202Dont forget that some questfags are tech savvy enough to deploy Full Auto Upvote Bots.
>>26324209Civ Fags are the hollow imitations. They're the ones who peddle whatever they can, all their own sub-par version of 'waifu' that doesn't quite work.
>>26324209Hm. Well, I do know that CYOAfags are like the crack shops cutting their product with bleach and shit.Civ fags...Eh, I'll get back to you on that.
>>26324225>"It was a good dream..."
>>26324225Only if it ends in the horrifying revelation of his dying breath that he finally sees how nonexistent they all are. Besides, Waifu is a drug now.
>>26324228Those are like terminators, we don't stand a chance. We don't attack them, we find the person controlling them and kill them.
I never thought I could love a QTG this much.
>>26324209To put it in Shadowrun terms, Waifu is a BTL while Civs are more like Jazz or your other run of the mill drugs. Still Questshit, but of lower priority.
>>26324288I told you man, it feels like things are mellowing out some.
>>26324257>>26324246>>26324243So shitty diluted black market equivalent drugs.
>>26324271I heard one time, Misarchiver and Lone Voter took on 10 Upbots with only ONE downvote between them!
>>26324269The Waifu drug is a hallucinatory agent. You envision your ideal mate, who loves and adores you. To you, it's as real as it can be. White Knight Waifufag knew that his waifu was just a hallucination, an illusion, but he still loved her. Even if his love was fake, he has no regrets.
So haremfags are hopeless addicts who can no longer function properly. They're like the people who took the brown acid.
>>26324297Because you have elevated your trolls to gods.
>>26324228That's the big reveal when the Lone Voter realizes the enormity of the plot he's facing."'Waifu'? Please, that's just a start. A convenient step ladder. Oh, Lone Voter. Didn't you wonder why your former friend, the 'Misarchivist' did what he did? He saw the future, Lone Voter. The future where 'one man, one vote,' gets thrown in to the garbage like the trite truism it used to be. Welcome to the future, Lone Voter."With a tap at his keyboard, Lone Voter saw the score suddenly changed from -2, to +22. Mr. Garrote leaned back, and grinned, as behind him, the doors slid open, revealing stainless steel smiling abominations. "One man. TWENTY votes."
>>26324324Yep. Haremhead is the slang term for a Waifu junkie.
>>26324329If you consider robin hood a god, sure.More like we folk-tale-ized them.
>>26324314I heard that the Misarchiver once rallied together troops from /pol/ to take down an entire Quest!
>>26323960>>26323998The entire point to posting the infodump was to gauge reaction, and that reaction was a near-unanimous "OHMYGODTOOMANYWORDS". There's no "finger-pointing" involved. That reaction was the point of the exercise, and I only responded to try and confirm the conclusion that trying to channel Kojima in the background and intro didn't work.I haven't "adapted" yet because I've had to go back to square one storytelling-wise.So if you have something constructive to add, by all means, let's hear it. Otherwise I'll just tick that off as a vote against and call it a night.
>>26324345Either way, they are now immortal.
>>26324333goddamnit how dare you slander an author I like also I can't stop laughing I almost shot water out my nose you jerk
>>26324350Nah, man, the Downvote Duo rode alone. That was before LV had to resort to desperate measures.
>>26324358Well, as immortal as any other quest. And you know what? I'm fine with that.
>>26324372Ahhhh sheeeeet. Moral crisis moment.Will the Lone Voter sink to the level of the QMs, and build a bot army of his own?
>>26324333I think some should already be in existence, but mass marketing them has been all but impossible until this point. Unfortunately, the chaos LV has created has allowed LL & Friends to kick up production of the Upbots for these clearly drastic times.Think Boomers from Bubblegum Crisis.
>>26324382I think they will be remembered much longer than the average quest.
>>26324405Eventually, LV manages to capture one, and turn it into a Downbot.
>>26324412Well, most concepts made on the QTGs get remembered by the QTGs longer.I don't see what your point is, really. They'll both be forgotten other than their archive and occasionally musing fan discussion.And I actively DON'T discuss quests I like, so as to not be an advertising schill.
>>26324405The Misarchivist knew. That's why he went full terrorist, misarchiving threads- it was the only way to stop the upbots! The Lone Voter still believed in Suptagge, still believed in the promise held in its pristine archives of the olden years, and was appalled by the Misarchivist's deeds. If only they had talked to one another, the Misarchivist might have been able to tell the Lone Voter the full threat facing them.
>>26324389>the only way to stop it, is to give every man 20 votes>If every man has 20 votes, then no man has 20 votesWe create out own army as a façade, our true intention was to destroy all the bots all along.
>>26324441In his darkest hour, LV does what he promised he never would. He misarchives threads. Now he has to deal with both QMs AND the Mods trying to stop him. His realizes there are no easy ways out in this world.
>>26324351Sorry, sorry. I didn't mean to sound so caustic, but the post I was responding to came across as rather aggressive, as well.I'm just saying that you shouldn't be surprised that /tg/ doesn't want to read a random infodump right off the bat. We're lazy until we're hooked.
>>26324489And the mods are basically judges.
>>26324500I for one am SUPER lazy.If it was an actual cinematic, playing at me, I'd be fine. but READING it? Gods no, I only read things like that once I'm invested in the concept. And I don't particularly care for metal gear much- never had many playstations.
SUPTG'S SLEEPING LIKE A SOLDIER TRAPPED INSIDE AN IRON LUNG>>26324520Questers will beat the hell out of you. Smarts, but you'll live. A QM will break your fingers, keep you from posting for days on end, but give it time, find a place to lay low, you'll recover.But a mod? You catch the wrong side of a mod, and it's all over for you. And lemme tell you, Lord Licorice? He's the mod of the mods. You don't even think of breathing his name, unless you're tired of fighting, and feel like dying painful. No coming back from Lord Licorice's hammer.
>>26323908Well, you seem to be the only one.
>>26324578Also, downvotes are the equivalent of a gun. Misarchives are like terrorist bombing attacks in the middle of a public area. Effective, sometimes they can even destroy whole Quests, but they get you notices big time, and do the ends truly justify the means?
What happens to Quests that stop suddenly? Do the Downvote Duo get them?
>>26324625quests fail often of their own accord. I see no reason to not keep that the same.
>>26324625That's what they say, but you can never be sure.
Yuri Waifus are probably to waifus what Fentanyl is to opioids, right? All that PURITY can't be healthy for you.
>>26324625Some of them get out of it because of guilt, or because the Downvote Duo got to them, or because they became jaded, and themselves became downvoters.Your greatest ally, the one who supplies you with your weapons, used to be a quest runner.
>>26324659what about ladies holding hands?
>>26324671> I couldn't take it anymore, man. My waifu had the best flavour. Great presentation. But... I just couldn't do it anymore.
>>26324606Yeah. Questers can be good and bad, but usually it's because they're jonesing for a dose of W that they do what they do. It's not really their fault- a Quester upvotes at you, you downvote right back at them. But to misarchive a whole thread of them? Hell, it's not their fault. Waifu is real tempting these days, with the state of The Gee. Doing that is indiscriminate violence. Sure, LL can put things back together, but that's only if you're in TIGHT with him- and you know what a QM's gotta do to get HIS favor. Not to mention, it breaks the sacred reason why the Archive was created in the first place. You do that, you're setting a bad precedent. Sure, the order's corrupted nowadays, but do you really want to burn it at all to the ground, when it has such good foundations?Lone Voter is tempted to.
>>26324649Hah, the Downvote Duo are Emmanuel Goldstein for QM's Two Minute Hate. I like it. "You all said I was the reason that QM's went missing in the night! You always laid the blame on me and my friend! But it was never us, it was always you! But fuck you, if you want me to be your boogeyman, I might as well start acting like it!"Cue QMs getting bumped off in Quest/Story/whatever. Does anybody intend to run this? Claim it now, or forever hold your peace.
>>26324705Lone Voter may have to. Whether it is creating downbots to mow down the masses or misarchiving and taking them all at once, sacrifices will be made. In both morality and blood, sacrifices will be made.
>>26324740"I had to burn the thread to save it."
>>26324739And Licorice is Big Brother. Does that mean non questers are the proles? Does hope truly lie in them, or are they just impotent masses, satisfied with their "discussion" rations, which are ever decreasing?
I fucking love /tg/.>>26324739Seems to be better fit for writefagging, really.>>26324693*Holding hands while staring into each other's eyes and blushing deeply.They call it Reaper Lily. The worst shit only the most lost of souls take.
>>26323428Do you think Misarchivist actually was Lone Voter's friend? Think again. Lone Voter may be hero to people, but that's because they don't know who he is. Misarchivist knew the Lone Voter. And he was disgusted. Not that the Lone Voter could ever known.The Lone Voter is immune to Waifu because he knows unrequited love down to his marrow already.
Someone needs to fucking make this.
>>26324867Nah. It's one of those things that sounds neat in concept that will never work out.
>>26324822Oh please, Misarchiver is the Kamina to LVs Simon, the Gimli to his Legolas. They didnt need waifus, because they already had the ultimate Bromance.
>>26324867If it was a quest, I would say make the MC some random upstart following in the footsteps of the Downvote Duo.
>>26323832>>regularly use it as an argument point to diffuse "too many X type threads!" argumentsThe 40K analogy tends to make those arguments worse, shitfuck.
>>26324904Whaaaat? No way, he's gotta be the Lone Voter starting his roaring rampage of revenge for the fallen Misarchivist.Can YOU infiltrate Exabyte's Vale and kill the Panchronoal waifu?
>>26324904Nah, it has to be as LV, trying to continue his mission in the wreckage of the misarchivists fall.
>>26324889No, the misarchivist is a reminder of how easy it is to be corrupted by this world. In the end we may fall to the temptation, and start misarchiving threads. Then we'll know he was right, and that we have no choice, but to BLOW IT ALL UP!!!
>>26324940>Lone Voter is the one who altered the narrative and turned the waifu in psion quest into a slut by poisoning Exa's Waifu stash.I love it.
>>26324500I actually took the too-long thing to heart a little. I always felt the MGS writing was overdone.My initial solution was to shorten it and write it in a comical Russian accent, then make the protagonist a mildly insane Soviet sniper. The monologues would be like their internal thought process. It starts with:After Patriotic War, world was in two: east and west. Mark beginning of Cold War, why not. Better/worse?
>>26324980Quit trying to make the obvious Noble Sacrifice into some sort of grimderp faggotry. This is why no one likes questfags.
>>26325002It was always grimderp faggotry. What the misarchivist did was reprehensible.
>>26325002>taking any post with three !s seriouslyHe's an obvious madman.>>26324994Probably better, but I am not in the target demographic for your quest as I've got no fucking idea what metal gears solid snakes, and probably shouldn't have mentioned how I wasn't reading your thing.
>>26324889This is a tall tale that Misarchiver has come to loathe more and more. It was one thing when just the Lone Voter considered him a friend -- that was amusing, in a sadistic way -- but every time he hears some chucklefuck parroting that romantic bullshit, Misarchiver's blood boils that much more.
>>26325036Misarchiver is dead yo. >>26324984I fucking love it.
Secret mission: Stop the haremites from ressurecting Hecate.
>>26325049So he'd have you believe.
>>26325064They'll try to do it by sacrificing non QM tripfags. Hexer, we will save you, even if you are a pathetic Quester, your addiction doesn't warrant death.
>>26325068OH GOD THE PLOT TWISTS I CAN'T KEEP UP
>>26324994Sounds better to me.Have you played Borderlands? The introduction shorts with Marcus narrating could be a great source of inspiration.
>>26325095>the misarchiver was LV's waifu all along>LV was a dope up haremfag the whole time
>>26325109LV and MA being the same person seems like an inevitability.
>>26325134In the end, LV had won the war, he loved his waifu.
>>26325094Dude, that's, like, dude, that's totally awesome. You and I should maybe, I dunno, have a shot of Moe or two, what do you think?> implying such ritual wouldn't require bigger sacrifices. Weaver. Femcock, PrincelyDM, those people.
>>26325214>implying they didn't use their connections to escape from itThe sacrifice will involve massive amounts of low profile tripfags. The kind no one will miss.
>>26325214>Weaver>sacrificing the QM equivalent of CthulhuYou don't touch that QM. You just hope to God that Weaver stays dreaming in Tg'chan.
>>26325236Dammit, how deep does this rabbithole go?
>>26325248deeper than suptg, deeper than foolz! It all leads to the ultimate waifu faggot: Moot!
Okay, so, the Lone Voter acts alone as a vigilante against the power of the Licorice Lord's corporation, and his Waifu distributing flunkies. The Lone Voter in the old days ran with the Misarchivist- who was killed permanently by the Licorice Lord as a demonstration of what happens to those that defy the new order. The Lone Voter had started to drift away from the Misarchivist as he grew more extreme, and was growing disillusioned with the fight. The Misarchivist's brutal death shocked the Lone Voter, and the final, damaged, mysterious video tape that the Misarchivist sent the Lone Voter hinted at something terrible out there- worse even than the Waifu that was choking the life from the streets of The Gee. The Lone Voter rides again, this time against the comfortable and lazy Quest Masters, each reclining in comfort upon their throne of ill gotten goods, and scheming against one another. The Lone Voter fights first the only way he knows how, giving his singular downvotes against the unstoppable Quest hordes, but soon finds that that's not enough. He starts taking more drastic actions, trying to find the source of Waifu, encountering the fearsome "White Knight", and "Harem End," enemies both twisted by the drug to the point where they're unrecognizable as anons. Along the way, he uncovers a conspiracy to bring in mercenary armies from the Eastern A, the decadent Dee cults, and the deployment of the fearsome Upbots. Can the Lone Voter turn the tide of history? Can one man's vote defeat the votes of twenty machines? Will the anons of The Gee finally rise from their stupor, and fight for the dignity of the board? Will the Lone Voter be able to stand against the dread Licorice Lord, and avenge his once friend, the Misarchivist? Will the Lone Voter follow down the path of madness and terrorism that the Misarchivist went down? All these questions, and more, will be answered in the Lone Voter's Sage, a trilogy coming out probably never.
>>26325313Furiously revving the shadowrun returns
>>26325313I love it!
>>26325313THANK YOU BASED GOD.>>26325236So that's why I haven't seen Udz latel- PANIC!!>>26325246Some are foolish enough to try...
Immediately before permaban.
>>26325313Capped for The Gee!
You don't understand...She needs me. I couldn't leave her...She loves me. She...She's calling me baka right now, for even thinking of leaving her. She's crying. I hate to see her cry.
>>26325402>LV fails to stop the sacrifice>Hecate is resurrected>The only way to stop it is to inject it with an enormous amount of waifu, frying it's brain>LV saves the day, by sinking to the QMs level
>>26325551>The Lone Voter realizes where all the Waifu in The Gee is coming from.>LV needs to infiltrate Suptagge Corp. >Security has been stepped up after the Misarchivist, and subsequently LV's campaigns against the Quests. >There's no way for LV to get in without being instantly fried as himself.>He has to have a disguise, a good one.The Lone Voter has to start a successful quest to slip in with the archive.
>>26325620And that quest, my friends, shall be ours. That is where we'll start.
>>26325644OH GOD THE METARECURSION. That's the Lone Voter's private Hell, isn't it? He wants to defeat the quests. But the quests are too strong. So, he becomes everything he hates, bit by bit. And then, the final bridge to jump? To become one of them. One of the quest masters. So, what will his quest be about? Write what you know. About a man that crusades against the quests, becomes everything he hates, and then to finish it all, make all the blood and tears worth it, has to start a quest to finish his revenge. What will the quest be about? Well, write what you know. About a man who fights the quests, and to defeat the quests, must start a quest. About what? Write what you know. About a man who must defeat the quests, by making a quest. About what?On, and on, and on, a never ending loop, until finally-
someone please, archive this thread, its too hilarious to die alone
>>26325743Oh the ironing.
>>26324275I only just NOW got that. You probably won't see this, but you need to know you made me laugh.
>>26325765>>26325743It might not be a bad idea. Foolz is down. I'd want to read this again.
well VMQ just finished, heres hoping Merc starts another quest soon, I rather enjoyed his work

>>26326471Ooh, wait.The Generals
>>26326471tale/a/non, the thousand-lived shadowy ruler over legions of haremites. Her Waifu is cut with the vile substance called SUFFERING and it's said that her mind lives on in anyone that tastes of her poison.>>26326506See>>26317279
>>26326471Joke Boss: AC-Guy
>>26326543He's the recurring miniboss who's cursed with bad luck.
>>26326543Hype him up as a big battle- when a neon sign crashes down on him, putting him into traction.Again.And then a moose attacks for no particular reason.
>>26326540Oooh, hive mind. Nice idea.>>26326543The Lone Voter goes to fight him, but AC-Guy has already managed to get his scrotum caught on a curtain hook before he gets there. Also, for some reason, I'm imagining the Lone Voter as being very similar to the kid. Quiet, single minded, every characterization only introduced by narrator.
>>26326540>>26326585tale cannot be killed, and once the SUFFERING has built up in a particular victim they mutate into a grotesque imitation of her, being driven to exude Waifu through their pores which in turn creates more spawn.
Colossal Fagot. Fallen 40k drawfag. Weaver. The chthonic start of the Quest cancer, and ancient god of hellish deviancy and awfulness. Banished to distant tgchan in ages past. A quest creature, not to be trusted, but one aligned against the questers that currently rule /tg/. Is the enemy of my enemy my friend?
