We haven't had one of these in a while, and quests lately seem to be unimaginative.

Which ones were the best and why? Which ones were the worst and why? What should be emulated? Avoided? What are you following? What are you dropping?

Advice to new questgivers? Interesting rules or story conventions to borrow/steal? Good and bad conflict resolution mechanics?

Join #quest on irc.thisisnotatrueending.com if you like, it's a channel for our kind of bullshit on the sub/tg/ chat server.

Post days and times (in 4chan time if possible, but always give a timezone) when shit runs, and we'll build a schedule to keep people more aware and prevent new quests from being scheduled over something that'll draw players away.

>> No.22585320

For House and Dominion still seems to be running tuesdays and thursdays. What else have we got?

I remember Fallout quest, Red Dragon Quest, Chapter Quest, and there's Great Cave Quest now.

I'm following that one, but the OP keeps having long absences when he says he'll be back the next day. That makes me sad. I really liked how he let the character be a trap/shemale and then proceeded to make the quest something other than a fapfest.

For House and Dominion generally starts on Tuesday and keeps running as long as the thread stays up. The next start day is posted on its wiki.


Bright Quest runs on Thursdays, I think. The author posts on his twitter account before he makes a thread.


As far as I know, Lost Future Quest runs irregularly, but the author also has a twitter account.


Likewise, the authors of Monster Girls Quest and Joker Quest have twitter accounts.

It's only two threads in, too early to judge. Though he seems to have put thought into how his world works, and seems interesting. Also the whole knight thing seems like it could be fun, but we might be forcing it on Faggot.

>> No.22585589

In the last thread he said he did. Though I don't know why he can't do both, he does AdEva two times a week, seems like enough to me. If we ask him and he drops God Slayer entirely I bet we could get him to do it three times.

I'm thinking a dice system where you can choose to do things AWESOME instead of practical in exchange for AWESOME POINTS that you can spend for bonuses.

Hello, I'm the guy who runs Adeptus Evangelion quest. I am trying to work out a regular twice or three times a week schedule. I was either thinking Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday, or swapping out Wednesday for Thursday.

Also, as for the name, it would probably be better to call it "A Knight Does Not Die With An Empty Hand", which is the name the players seem to have given it. It is set in the Adeptus Evangelion verse but is being taken in a strange direction by the players (not a bad direction of course).

Also, if anyone wants to play it's going on tonight at 22:00 4chan time, and I will be going for about 4-5 hours of writing (or until I burn out if there is enough people participating).

I'm considering starting a quest that I'm tentatively calling Amnesia Quest. The protagonist would start with absolutely no memories of who they are. The first few actions of the question would determine the protagonist's approximate skill set (do you fight or flee? protagonist turns out to be good at what they choose) after which I would set this amnesiac loose on the world, which I think would be a near future occult setting, like WoD or Unknown Armies set 10-20 years in the future.

I'm not sure whether or not it's a good idea, though. What do you guys think, shit or not shit? Also, when would be the best time to run it? I can run it from work (desk job), run it from school (wifi), and run it from home. I could probably do it in the afternoons and evenings most days of the week.

Oh and everyone, unless you want me to run Adeptus Evangelion Quest three times a week I was considering running it twice a week (probably during the week day times) and running a different quest on the week end (for a longer period of time, like 6 hours instead of 4 or something).

This one is based on a novel I wrote. I'd follow a very odd world in humanity's future after a microbiological plague has made the surface of the planet unlivable, and formed an eternal storm and cloud cover above it. Since then humanity has split into several factions:

The Free Trade Federation: Made up of many flying cities supported by enormous fields of hydrogen filled planets (think balloon mangroves) and fun by the great Trade Princes. Their actual governance is mostly done by the separate Trade Lords who run the guilds and by giant "thinking houses" which are filled with adding machines that run calculations on events.

The Church of Lamenting Spark: They live in giant ancient towers which used to be vertical cities made by the collapsed civilization. They worship a god called Eletricus and electricity itself. Very against using electricity for any reason. Also they perform genetic experimentation.

The Eastern Shield Towns: There is no central government here, instead six cities rule over the tops of the himalayas that stick up above the clouds. They supply nearly all the metal for the civilizations.

A giant floating train system connects there all. Also there is "magic" which is misunderstood ancient technology.

I've written two novels set in this world and have spent numerous hours thinking of concepts to flesh out every detail, so I know the world would be vibrant and at least a little interesting.

So what will it be? Skyrails Quest once a week and Adpetus Evangelion twice? Or Adeptus Evangelion Three times?

>> No.22585902

Thing is, amnesia only last until the guy gets told what he's missing. well.. you could have it as amnesia quest, provided that the quest was mainly about finding out about MC's past, and ended when that was resolved.

What you have written is, no offence, a pretty standard quest opening. If you plan on having the players run around in an open world, then make it about the world, there's no shame in that. I'm afraid I'm unfamiliar with the settings you mention, but those names seem fine. There's a book with that name, isn't there? Something similar?

Strike Witches '89 runs most Tuesdays I believe, and is pretty well written I think - there's really not much of the weeaboo influence in this game other than the fact that there's teenage girls with planes for legs, but the actual planes and other military things are pretty legit, and there's a distinct lack of shitposting in the thread most nights.

Personally I'm wanting to run something but haven't come up with a solid enough plot to run; plus there's all the other quests going on that makes me think it'd be better to not add more to the load.

Hey OP, if you're doing this to tell when to post, you should also keep in mind when the board is more active. Quests live and die on particiation, so you've got to juggle having enough players with having too few competition. Different quests might need more or less attention to run.

>> No.22585948

Monsters girls quest op here, the day of the quest has been Sunday for quite a few months now and it happen during the evening, starting between 4 to 5 pm until I basically need to keel over from fatigue.

However it’s not rare for me to run earlier in the week, but Sunday definitely is my go to day.

>> No.22585951

Yeah, that's the main reason I wouldn't want to name it Brave New World Quest. I don't know if I necessarily want to tease people into thinking I'm going to run a quest based on an Adolphus Huxley novel. That would be a pretty big let down. I want a name, though, to denote the fact that the world is near-future and somewhat exotic, if not a name that evokes the protagonist's traits.

>> No.22585967

So I've been looking to run a quest for some time now. I started one a couple of weeks ago, but my computer was stolen and I had to abandon. I have a setting, characters, locations and such, but I can never decide what a good time would be to run.

So, just as a head count, who is interested in playing a (probably) bi-weekly Mage Quest with it's own unique and in depth magic system? And to those interested, what time would best fit for you?

Nongent and NG are the same guy for Evo quest.

Yes. There are two rogue trader quests in the archive and one that I know of on SB, but two of those died before they even lifted off and one lasted for some 8(?) threads before falling apart.

I plan on making a 50,000 years later quest.

You are some kind of super soldier bullshit from ancient earth, completed a mission, and got put into a cryo pod to escape as the ship exploded, as per mission objectives. Then your super secret recovery ship gets shot down, and you wake up a LONG TIME later.

Possibly having the protagonist be the only human in the story, the rest being the alien inhabitants of wherever the fuck he drifted to.

>> No.22586017

Sounds fun. Don't burn yourselves out though, i'd rather have a quest running once weekly straight for more than a year (like house and dominion) than one thrice weekly and then disappearing midways.

That said, try your Skyrails thing out, it sounds fun, and see how tg reacts.

>Possibly having the protagonist be the only human in the story, the rest being the alien inhabitants of wherever the fuck he drifted to.
Just putting it out there, but in that scenario, I would make all of the 'aliens' be various strains of humans. Have him be the only 'pure' human. Know what I mean? Maybe even have the fact that all of the various 'alien' cultures are all descended from Earth not be a commonly known fact.

I was going to do something like that, except it switches between real world and RPG. The RPG allows for fantasy adventure while the real world allows for science fiction mystery based (and waifuing).

I was considering that, but then again the protagonist isn't the most "human" themselves by that definition.

Normal guy, average joe in modern day earth, discovers that there is an alternate reality overlapping with our own, filled to the brim with all manner of monsters and gribblies and demons and so forth.

The manner in which he discovers this? An egg from one of the monsters clonks him in the head while he's taking his bike route, and the creature that hatches from it bonds to him.

Adventures in hiding a supernatural being in modern times, trying to balance a now dual-world life, and surviving attacks from supernatural creatures and beings, even as the protag has to worry with being a new parent.

Thank you.

Not sure they had systems as such.

Battleship quest wasn't as good, lots of shitposting and idiocy, the OP was too timid to step in and tell his players to shut up or put time limits on artuments.

Voidquest had a lot of stats and we didn't know what all of them did, really. Lots of arguing, some people thought the arguments were legitimate and others thought they were fucking stupid. I'd say the truth was somewhere in the middle. The questgiver, Vedibere, was often slow in posting and that had much the same effect as in the other quest.

tl;dr - create macromanagement systems if possible, post often (like at least three paragraph-long posts an hour, five preferably, I can manage upwards of ten to keep the rhythm going when I need to), tolerate no bullshit.

>lots of stats and we didn't know what all of them did

Ah, that's the exact route I am planning on going.

Though, I can't guaruntee that MOST of these stats aren't made up.

For instance, to determine how good looking something was, you factor in: Resplendence, Glory, Beauty, Charisma, and Fan Factor, along with a die roll.

>> No.22586334

There's been a lot of discussion of waifuing. Generally it's thought to be the product of downtime. If the players don't have a clear objective and they are attached to the characters, it's natural for them to want to learn more about them. This leads to romancing, of various sorts. This isn't bad, but it can derail if you're not careful.

If you want to avoid it, just keep making things explode.

>> No.22586344

Honestly nation builders usually have a steady and reliable amount of players the issue seems to be getting gms that want to do it past the first thread or two.

This is a good thread.

I won't know about scheduling for a while, spent half the weekend seeing if anyone liked the concept of a KoDP-like kobold civ with frequent miniquests in a bioluminescent underdark full of kreen subspecies that like to eat delicious drow and the other half ironing out some mechanics for the runic magic and etc, so nothing's been established.

If anyone in this thread's following my little quest, I'm going to try and run it again today after the second thread falls off the board. Probably in an hour or so if all goes well.

And here's a shout out to Kobold Sorcerer Quest, which was my main bit of inspiration.

I hope this is a good place to ask...

I am planning on running a quest. (Yeah, yeah, yet another one.), and I was toying with some ideas, and want to know if those ideas have been used, and how long ago. I don't want to be a copycat or something.

There is any place where I can search for past quest to avoid repeating?

Random ideas:

- A manhunt/running man quest. Anon have been kidnapped, been throw into an abandoned factory where a bunch of random guys are stalking and want to murder him because money. I was thinking about resolving combat through dice rolls (I roll a 1d8, you roll 1d12; fail 3 rolls and the char is dead), so I am expecting anon will not survive, but that is a good way as any other to end the quest. (No, I am not planning to kill him on purpose, just pointing that it is a scenario that can happen)

- A store owner quest. Basically, I am planning on running a quest about a guy who is living his dream of opening a geeky store. AKA: The comic book guy from the Simpsons. Do you have any idea how much shit does they have to endure? I think is a good time to show it.

>> No.22586417

I hadn't considered downtime, as I naturally assumed the main character would be either exploding, cutting things with swords, having gunfights, or INTENSE NEGOTIATIONS at most, if not all times.

But then again, I kind of want some downtime, since how else would you find more contacts, learn about stuff, get new gear, or maybe find a waifu?

I don't even know if that stuff is particularly good or bad for a quest, I just fear my ability to do it well.

This isn't /tg/, but, fuck it, everyone needs to know about this.


Now, listen up. This thread started a month ago and it is now officially over with a GOOD END.
It's essentially Exalted in the Naruto setting. It went through a total of 834 pages so far (20848 posts) and still growing because some of the players are still debating parts of it.

If you don't want to read the discussion (and you probably don't there is just too much of it), you can find the story-only posts here:

I would worry less about what you're imitating and more about execution. We don't mind a quest being like its predecessors if it's done well.

However, have a look at the /tg/ archive on suptg.thisisatrueending.com - that's a searchable repository, and any quest with a large following ends up there most of the time. Should have a bunch of stuff from the last few years.

You can also have a look at the foolz tg archive for the same, though it's hard to find things there as it lacks a tag system.

By "downtime" I actually meant the timing between posts, but yes, in an action oriented quest, it's best to try and limit breather episodes to one or two threads, especially if your quest is the "once a week" type.

>> No.22586540

People tell lies on the internet? The nerve!

As lightly as I can explain it, the magic system is based around the manipulation of souls and auras. Souls are at the core of every being, and auras surround and shield the soul from harm.

The Magi (Called Mystics) are able to manipulate their souls and auras, as well as the souls and auras around them. For example, a powerful mystic could rip apart a creatures aura, exposing the soul and leaving it open to manipulation. Or they could manipulate the souls and auras of plants and become druids. Or they could focus on extracting, synthesizing, and binding souls and become necromancers. Or they could bind THEMSELVES with the soul of a powerful Fire Elemental, and gain pyrokinetic abilities.

So there is lots of room for variation.
I guess I kind of mashed elements of TES's Soul Gem lore with that one series of books about Nicholas Flamel, but I'm satisfied with the end result.

The most important thing about creating factions is if they're actually interesting. Also, make sure you have a contingency for telling to story from each of your factions' point of view, because there is always the very high chance that your players will side with the faction you weren't expecting.

The main characters.
Secondary are okay.

But any character important is terrible.

That said there's nothing really special about the setting.

>> No.22586580

No need, I can sum it up in just a few sentences. Mostly its easy because the quest is set ten years after the end of the evangelion series, and so is pretty different to keep the players on their toes.

Children are forced to pilot giant robots in order to fight giant alien life forms, called angels, bent on wiping out all life on the planet. The robots are actually giant part human part angel beings with human souls implanted in them. Human organizations are trying to bring about end of the world, but in a different way. Now this is ten years after all those plans failed and the main character is one of the children trained to fight these evil beings and is based out of the San Francisco.

>> No.22586585

An interesting idea.

The amount of time that has passed since the last post by the quest giver has a direct correlation between the chances of a shitstorm occuring.

I think the 25 minute mark is when the shitstorm chance begins to exponentially increase and rapidly approach 100%, before it lowers as people begin to run out of stupid shit to argue about and suspect that the OP may in fact be having problems. Obviously, the exact details of the runners last post will have some impact on this. Chances are, somebody will soon suggest that the OP has died and people will begin discussing who should take over the quest like morons.

So, uh. So, WoD-fans. I have a quest idea that I want you to rate as terrible or not.

How about...how about we take the better elements of nWoD's story, balance, and mechanical conceits, and add/mix them with oWoD's good story etc, and call it a split-off universe, a hybrid, where you can have the best of both?

Toreadors practicing the Coils of the Dragon?

Werewolves being a bit less overpowering so one can have a certain level of parity with vampire and mage characters, et cetera?

They weren't overpowered when guns came into play, unless you count their regen as overpowered, which I don't. Guns even out a lot of advantages that things used to have. Honestly, I would rank a solid combat vampire in oWoD as the equal to your average werewolf, which, since they were intended as the physical/combat splat, is a good place to be.

Oh good, just the thread I was waiting for.

OP of Elf Slave Quest, Colony 13, and several others here. Haven't run anything in a while, and I'm trying to decide what to start up. If there's any interest, here are the three I've been thinking about.

1. Summoner Quest. Space adventure where you play as a space hero in space. You are a specialized bounty hunter whose job it is to pursue criminals who have fled the Stellar Alliance and forcibly summon them to court. There's lasers and aliums and shit. Think Mass Effect, but less civilized and with starfish aliens instead of humanoids.

2. Kara Quest, inspired by


Near future scifi, equal parts dark comedy and horror. You play as a commercial waifubot trying to figure out how and why it became sentient...in a world where people are paranoid about bona fide AI and you might be killed if people find out what you are.

3. Ultimate Faction Wars Quest. An RTS quest, based on pic related. This one would require lots of pre-quest planning so I can come up with specific rules and resources for whichever race you decide to play as.

You're doing it wrong. The idea is to replace the protagonist of a shitty by-the-numbers harem anime that features catgirls with a strung out Vietnam soldier who just got gored on a bayonet by a bunch of fucking Charlies. It would be closer to Call of Cthulu meets Maid than Only War.

If it's Evangelion-themed, there's an expected level of conspiracies, plots and counter-plots, secret societies, and pseudo-scientific bullshit. While the Main Character has agency over the story (by nature of being the main character), there absolutely need to be things happening in the background.

Bob makes twists and turns by making about half the powerful characters in the setting also player characters, run offsite.

So you have about 12 or 13 characters all working for various goals and the effects of those going down. And then, later on, some of the lesser characters played by other people...

Some ideas I had that will never come to pass:

A Star Trek captain (I'm thinking in the DS9 era) along with his ship and several smaller ships are transported into the 40K verse. The quest uses high-end 40K calcs, so your weapons are worse than useless and your engineers can't even begin to comprehend how Mechanicus technology works. This is a pretty sandboxy one, but there is one major limitation - you may not deviate from the Federation's code of conduct without a very good reason (like OH GOD GET THEM OFF).

Mercenary quest - you are the commander of a human merc company in the 40K galaxy. Have fun.

Drow quest - you're a male drow in the Underdark. Two versions of this one.
The first one is a pretty standard, open ended one where you spend most of the time trying to keep your head down.
The second one is where you are a slave trying to make the best of your situation.

Then a hard mode rogue trader quest.
The good news is that you start with a rogue trader charter.
The bad news is that you found it on a ship imbedded into a space hulk that you were investigating as a commander of a detachment of the Navy's armsmen.
The even worse news is that the space hulk just went into warp and the only thing keeping the demons away are the orks, and falling to chaos is an automatic defeat condition.

I also got an idea for an Imperial Nobleman quest, somewhat based on Nobleman quest (you know, the one in an ancient China-like setting), but it 40K.

The last one I can think of right now is Warband quest - sorta like Chapter quest, but with a chaos warband.

I was thinking of a quest which consists of the players choosing one of the Warhammer Fantasy factions and creating a general. From there they make a few simple army choices for a single squad force. As the quest goes on their fight various battles and gain more points to spend on units or to upgrade already acquired units.

Eventually it would lead to conquering the other factions.

Actually, no plot armor would be involved. The players would have to rely heavily on diplomacy and get shit done Picard style - by talking it out and trading.
Also, there are a few areas where Star Trek is better than 40k technology wise like communication, sensors and the fact that moving FTL doesn't transport them into a dimension that wants to eat them.

I've considered making a Rogue Trader-ish quest now and again, because if there are two things I love it's economics and space. I don't know much about 40K, though, so if I do it'll have to be in a more generic sci-fi universe. Which may be for the best, actually, gives the players more room to invent aliens, tech and crazy shit. Might do that after the next little bit of my other quest.
