Er, troll? How exactly is it trolling?

>> No.24645656

Well there was a long discussion just yesterday, and another one earlier in the week, about how having daily QTG's was just riling people up, and there wasn't enough to say about quests to justify daily threads anyway.

The general consensus was to have one QTG a week, on Saturday. So if you missed both those threads, consider this a heads up, if you didn't, then I would imagine this is some attempt to make people angry about quests and troll the board.

>> No.24645894

I never saw that thread. Is is in the Archives?

>> No.24646130

Every thread is in the archives. And by this I mean every single thread including all deleted and purged threads. You can let foolz search all OPs for the the words "quest" and "general" to find nearly all of them, if you really like them that much.

>> No.24647035

There is no need to make a thread to talk about Quests.

They're railroaded stories that allow for the people who partake in them to alter the course of the character's actions by extremely specific and limited amounts.

It's basically a visual novel without the visuals, and even though Quest threads are allowed on /tg/ there is no reason to clog up page 0 with even more fucking threads about them.

Please at least put quest in the subject field so we can filter you.

might have to call it differently, there has been a "deity quest" which was a bunch of gods creating a world as if it was a bunch of people playing DnD together, but much more awesome than it sounded. People got mad about how to play the MC god though, with two factions raging over "true neutral" or "god of knowledge" and some more butthurt, so I suspect the OP just quit because of that, though not sure.

If the responses you get are "your trolling is weak" you have not successfully trolled.

So people who don't want to see it don't have to.

It's weird, yeah.

In one of my threads, someone brought up a trifecta of crops that when planted together, benefit each other. That person apparently learned this from a book on native american agricultural practices.

Another example is people using turnips and clover to re-nitrify the soil after harvesting a crop.

Maybe, but I've never tried to make stronger beer by chilling it and so on, so it didn't follow that other liquors could do this. Perhaps just my oversight.

I actually heard about that trifecta thing in history class. Had to do with agricultural techniques in medieval and later ages or something. And the whole thing of 3 different crops in 3 successive years and then on repeat.

You don't have to wrack your brain. /tg/ will throw ideas at anyone that asks, and even people that don't ask. How about this:

The main character is magically bound to a robotic battlesuit from another dimension. He can only manifest one part of it at a time in this reality. For example, he could extend the suit's cutting blade from his arm, cover his head with the suit's helmet to use its enhanced sensors and laser eyes, or unfurl its gravity wings from his back. Each manifestation lasts for a limited time and is physically taxing. Extending manifestation time, learning to manifest different parts, and learning to control them better/enhance them is part of character progression. Manifesting multiple parts is a high-tier power, and drawing the whole suit into this reality is endgame.

I gave some advice to people who asked. I do not claim to be the final authority on anything, and have not. Tavern Quest is new to the board, and has it's own problems and flaws, which I do realize. Sorry if it came across that way. After seeing people who shared your sentiment, or perhaps just you, I have no way of knowing, I have ceased using the trip when giving advice. I thought it useful to those I sought to help, as they could look up the quest I run and see if my advice truly applied. I realize it came across as banking on some sort of ill gained authority or recognition, which was not my intention.

I doubt this will convince you of anything, but I will not allow you to say things about me that I view to be unfair. I hope we can come to an understanding, I do not wish for anything that reflects back on my quest or my readership.

Look, I'm not going to rise to stuff like that. I run a quest, a rather humble thing. I'm bad with systems, economics, math, art, and many other assets many QMs have. I like to think I can write decently, but you might well say otherwise, and I won't argue.

People seem to enjoy the Quest despite that, so I am glad, truly.

I have no desire to be some sort of board personality, but I don't want people thinking I feel I am better than other QMs. It's not true. I tried to help some people, and made the mistake of using the trip. Won't happen again, that. Not worth the trouble.

I've noticed something disturbing recently.

1. Quests rely too much on user input to craft a story, rather than quest runners having a general outline of how they want the story to go
2. QAs rely too much on gimmicks, rather than letting the story carry their quest
3. Quests that have 3-4 threads, then die due to the OP disappearing or because the story idea petered out (ties in to 1)

Overall, these are combining to create a steadily worsening quest environment. The gimmick arms race is especially troublesome.

Pic related, then we talk.

It's got more to do with board culture and expectations. Say you come to /tg/ to talk about anything that isn't a quest, but the front page is covered in quests, and when you make a thread it gets drowned by quests updating. That'll probably tick you off. So you go in to a quest thread to complain or make your frustration known, and get called an anti-fun cocksucking weaselfucker by three different people. That's going to sour your opinion of the entire thing.

Or maybe you look at what's being talked about in a quest. Once a decision's locked in, most of it is waifu wars instead of interesting worldbuilding discussion. It's not at all worthy of the attention or interest paid to it, so you hate it for being vapid.

Sometimes when I check suptg and almost everything there is quests I start hating all quest threads. I like and follow a bunch of quests and am thinking about my own, but that line of "______ Quest" disgusts me. By the number of threads archived under the "Quest" tag you'd think that most of what /tg/ does is quest-related, when it's only a small percentage of threads here.

The problem with the archive is that one is for notable threads that break the /tg/ mold and one is for chapters of a serial story.

The chapters of a serial story will all be archived in sequence, but a thread that deserves to be saved from the rest of /tg/ will be rarer. The number of 40K threads on /tg/ is huge, but how many are worth saving? How many are the same arguments about minor pieces of fluff over and over and over again? And that's just 40K, similar things happen for every game. Shit, it's why these Generals are never worth archiving, we're just making the same arguments again and again.

>That little midget from game of thrones.
The game of thrones is a widely acclaimed book and television series. It makes sense for one to offhandedly reference such a thing, or to do the same for Drizzt, Neuromancer, Dune, or any other widespread character/book/etc.

Now compare the circulation of Drizzt or GoT to Blatant Fetish Quest. You arent even in the same ballparks.

And yet I will humor someone if they mention BFQ, like I humor people when they talk about GoT. I don't even know what 2/3 of the shitstorms that go on here on a regular basis are about, but I'll hear them and do my best to try to talk it out.

I would probably be more accommodating if it didn't happen all the fucking time. Now I just don't want to hear it.

well, I'm afraid to say that can happen with any subject regardless of the quality of popularity. I do apologize for any hijacking that may have taken place- I too enjoy talking about paladins.

I just talked to Lord Licorice on steam, he said he didn't delete the Rape Dungeon thread.

Really, the fact that he uses tildes like that is more offensive than anything else he could say.

What do you want him to do?

People put in archive requests to the system, it gets automatically archived, every once in a while he does purges of stuff.

Are you saying that he should personally watch every thing that gets archived so things you don't like don't get archived for the people who do like them?
