Hoo/d/ Quest could make an interesting card game in vein of Magic, with allies to play in battle and spell cards based off the colors.

Well, GE uses a very loose adaption of Madoka's magic system mostly just the 'make a contract for a (more reasonable) wish' and 'you can witch out' parts, and the MC has the power to see into the future a little bit, at the cost of constantly draining from her soul gem (further into the future = exponentially more drain, but that would clutter mechanics). It also means she's generally outmatched in straight-up fighting, since most enemies have powers that help directly in a fight, or are just more powerful (witches, demons, etc). I think an unforgiving but masterable combat system like the * Souls games would suit that very well.

The MC's power could easily be implemented as an on/off thing - when on, it drains your energy slowly (0 energy is death, separate from health) but it lets you essentially do a Prince of Persia like rewind whenever you want to by pressing and holding a button - although the cost ramps up the further you go, the bigger cost (4 - 5 seconds is no extra cost, just the drain, then every 5 seconds it costs more).

After leaving rewind mode, if any of your allies have taken damage or anything like that, you have the opportunity to keep that from happening, either by directly changing your approach to the following seonds and attacking another enemy (that would hurt them), or by using a kind of support system - hit a button after leaving rewind, and you automatically throw out a hand to pull them back, aim a kick that sends them sprawling, or whatever - so that the enemies miss their attack.

I think it would be really fun to play if implemented right. Only drawback is, would take a few free buttons dedicated to those mechanics.

The related quest Totemist is definitely worth the read, even though it is on another indefinite hiatus. It is kind of a monster hunter quest. Beat a monster to near death, kill it with a ritual and trap their soul on a part of their body. Then you use these to enchant items. Also, you can make various totems with wide range of powers.

>> No.29259957

>Sands of Time was an amazing game, and being the time warper leading a party using real time powers seems like such an obvious idea I'm shocked it isn't already a thing.
Yeah, it's fun enough in the quest, but I think it would be even MORE fun in a game. Its why that's my must wanted quest.based game (in my fantasies) - lots of other quests would be cool, but GE combines some of my favorite existent game-play in the D*Souls series, with a mechanic I haven't seen anywhere and which seems like it'd be very fun - and a much better implementation of time-sensitive button-pressing than QTE's since you can actually predict them 100%.

The quest reminds me of the older kind of anime or VN, the messy tragic kind, so it fits having an older feel to the game flow. You can spend time grinding Essence by fighting Players and Correctors, spend your time using your Essence swag to improve your real world social statistics, try to get to the bottom of the mysteries of the Red World, or spend time reconnecting with friends who've drifted away.

I think it'd be an interesting twist for Anon's social circle to be the key to unlocking the mystery, with Kazuya serving as the catalyst for Anon to start moving.

For non-smut harem stuff, most of them have the challenge come from non-romance related stuff anyway.

Is Japan's air traffic management all that different fron anywhere else?

For folklore, you've got a lot of options to look at for Demons/Yokai. A couple possibilities to look at would be Jorogumo, Oni, Tengu, and Kamaitachi You might want to look into Mikos, shrine maidens, and Onmyoji, magicians and seers. If you need a serious even of badness think about a Hyakki Yagyo, the Night Parade of 100 Demons

Also, a Kitsune inspired Magical Girl would have fluffy tails, which is always good.

As for Japanese culture, it's remarkably repressed which almost certainly ends in "hilarity" for all their Magical Girls. And might be why they produce so many Heartspawn and go Rebel.

Maybe I'll be wrong and the murderboner will erupt skyward. That would be just as interesting. I'm curious to see how it would play out if people go for full hellfire on everything. My gut instinct is that Devon is still going to be outclassed heavily, especially when the murderer mutant half drowzee kid shows up for 4v1: Three Espers and Superbug edition.

On a technical level, the writing does seem to be really good, it's just the premise is so... self-inserty.

Catalogues have contributed a lot to generals and the bumping of hour-old threads.
I feel it takes a lot away from the boards, but at the same, with the number of posters nowadays, I suppose it helps cut down on spam because no one can be bothered to go past page 1.

>> No.29270150

The point is that 85% of /tg/ is not quests. There are 140 threads on the board for you to look at and enjoy. There is a way to make your own threads. You can hide quests. You can filter them.

If you never want to see another quest, you don't have to.

On /co/? I do think that would have indeed been the proper course of action. It would have faded in due time.

But given their own board, they... festered.

To say you want quests to have their own board is saying you want to damn quests to that same face, an endless morass of shitposting.

TTQ is a well-written quest by a good writer which itself still manages to be terrible.

Terrible? It has its ups and downs but I think it's at least good or very good. What is your scale for terrible?

I've always thought a Quest rides on:

>Overall Writing/Art Quality
The content of the updates. This is about mostly how well the characters, scenarios, and situations are written.

>Overall Agency
The prompts and the QM's reactions to them. A good score indicates a QM with flexibility that doesn't snap under pressure. A bad score is railroading on the level of "You don't do that, you retards, you do this." I've seen it happen.

>Systems and clarity
Rates how clear the mechanics and setting of the system are. A high score indicates a quest that is easy to get into, but manages to be deep and interesting anyway. A low score is labrynthine without a reward for mastery beyond being able to post.

>QM/Player relations
Notates how well the QM works with his players. A high score indicates a polite QM who works with rather than against his players. A low score is Fronk.

Is this about right?

>> No.29271609

We should rate QMs on scales of 1-10 on these four topics.

>how fast the voting period ends which prevents us from reasoning things out.
I actually really like that. It makes things frantic and fun.
I understand the rest of what you're saying. Still with good characters / characteriztion, really memorable climaxes, good writing and dialogue, good tension, etc. I think terrible is a really heavy word to use. To me it feels like a good story and a fun experience but the questing elements at its core are slim.
I still really like it though. It's hooked me harder than anything else here.

Not whatsoever. I think this gets back to the one stated problem with TTQ, that everything tends to revolve around the choices of the protagonist a little too much. But characters like Jinx are definitely stronger, and the protag has gotten his ass handed to him several times, even embarrassingly.

Something needs to be added to this.
I think teen titans quest excels in all of these areas, but I still think it has problems.
Then, maybe my problems with it are just gripes that I want changed, but that aren't really significant detractors.

Like I know it would be more proper if things didn't heavily revolve around the mc, but hasn't that been making everything more entertaining? Or maybe some other characters should be controllable when they're in the spotlight? I don't want every update to just be prose.

>> No.29271930

/tg/-dice are crazy (or, well, chance in general).

A couple of 20s, a couple of 1s, several consecutive rolls of numbers (e.g. rolling three 9s in a row). Plus one of the 20s was at the most narratively appropriate moment I could possible think of given the way I had tied part of the plot to the players rolling them.

This was the opposite. The players rolled terribly for some of the easier encounters but then rolled magnificently for the big boss fight at the end of the thread. Then, right as I'm about to end the fight and the thread, they roll a 20 - a 20 which had a plot device attached to it due to the hidden stats I'm tracking.

Definitely sentient. I mean, then there was Wolf Quest which was damned funny to follow, too.

Odds are about 1 in 500 (three 20s in six rolls). So yeah, I'm inclined to agree. It should have done something special to him but if he's meant to have form of immortality then he shouldn't die to a lucky blow. Especially a lucky blow with mere 1 in 500 odds (1 in 1m or bust).
