Which Quests are you following?
Which Quests do you want to run?
Which Quests do you miss?

QM Question: The players all start directing your quest towards an end you don't want. Do you stop them?

Player question: Do you have difficulty dropping of quests you don't like but have been following?

Hard to do without accusations of railroading. I've dropped quests because the players wanted to push it to places I really didn't want to go.

If you can't read the atmosphere of a quest, you shouldn't be allowed to participate, otherwise you get lolrandum shit in a serious quest, white knighting in a villain quest and murderhoboing in a hero quest.

>Which Quests do you want to run?

-Quest in which the mc is the daughter of Scholomance's librarian. Can't decide 100% on a name.

-Raildex Quest. Well, I actually had several ideas for how I could run it. Make it completely AU and start off with the mc being some magician is one option. The other option is to start it off at the beginning with everything canon, but everything gets thrown out of whack by having Index run into Accel instead of Touma first, Last Order latches onto Hamazura instead of Accel, and Takitsubo/ITEM gets Touma instead of Hamazura. For the second option, the players would switch between controlling Accel, Touma, and Hamazura.

-Quest in which you're the child of a demon mafia boss. This one would be pretty sol sandboxy compared to everything else, mainly getting into hijinks around the city. You've got two bodyguards that follow you around all the time. One really takes his job seriously, the other is a bit of a jackass that wants to have fun with the job and constantly tries to convince you to go do dangerous shit.

-Cyberpunk/fantasy mix detective quest. Your job is to deal with the more unusual crimes. Lots of weird murders have been happening recently, and tensions between the magic districts and the rest of the city has everything on edge. Would have episodic cases lasting a couple threads each with an overarching plot in the background eventually.

-Heroes Quest. Starting at the end of s3 when Sylar kills Nathan.

*Magus Doll Zeimdoll: The setting is a fantasy kingdom known as Kralsted. Humans are the only inhabitants, elves are a long-forgotten legend, and dwarves are salty sailors who come across distant oceans to trade. Humans war on several fronts with Frost Giants and other unnatural beasts who descend from the mountains to raid. Too weak to fight them under normal circumstances, humans developed Magus Dolls, ten- to fifteen-meter suits of armor powered and piloted by skilled mages in the employ of the sovereign Queen Lisbeth. You play as Charles Aznan, the descendant of a disgraced noble lineage, who lives in squalor with his younger sister. In a freak set of circumstances, you defend and save the Queen from an onslaught of vicious beasts, and in return are granted a place in the royal guard. As vicious rebellions, Frost Giant Onslaughts, and even rumors of the elves' return threaten the kingdom, you are forced to pilot the Zeimdoll: said to be the most powerful--and most dangerous--Magus Doll ever created.

I just got the best idea, get a load of this: A Nanoha quest where you're playing an antagonist. Just think of the possibilities the setting has, from the grayer side of things the MC could be a revolutionary wanting full autonomy for his homeworld without TSAB interference, or if you want to go full evil instead, the MC could be after revenge of catastrophic proportions or just ULTIMATE POWER.

It would require both the QM and the players to not shy away from things going horribly and/or hilariously wrong and canon characters possibly being screwed over, though.

I think this is the side-effect of CYOA type of inputs at the end of the update.

Now that just encourages a new form of dumbfuckery, makes it harder to get players to stick to characterisation and often results in extended periods where nobody posts anything because they're all too thick to come up with their own ideas.

Admittedly, the last one is more of a problem on Anon-kun, but it's really dispiriting to watch your audience do nothing for 15 minutes, then all jump on the first suggestion no matter how dumb it was.

I've been thinking of running Space Station 13 quest.

The players (collaboratively) control a crewman on a Nanotransen™ space station. Every session is a new station, where all of the crew members (who possibly died in the last session) are cloned and often have new jobs. One or more of the characters, possibly the player, is some kind of antagonist who causes havoc on the station, from a syndicate-hired traitor to a THE THING-inspired changeling, to an alien queen who's gotta make babies.

The crew would be extremely reminiscent of Sealab 2020, silly characters the players will become familiar with, with the added bonus of being able to murder them over and over in hilariously creative ways. Each crewman would have a randomly generated job, with certain preferences, and the guy who's usually the captain randomly becoming the janitor would be played for comedic effect.

The QM is also a little bit at fault there I think. When writing the story, QMs should make sure that the goals are clear, perhaps work in the possible suggestions withing the update.
If that doesn't work at all, then it is a good gauge to see that your players are bunch of imbeciles and perhaps it is a good thing that the quest is dying.

How do you handle planned changes in tone? I've been contemplating an idea for a quest which would start off lighthearted but serious the fuck up as it went on, since the protagonist is rather naive about the world beyond their tiny peaceful section of it.

Dozens. I've got a hundred barely thought out ideas, even less that have more than an initial thought put into them, and few others that I've written more than a skeleton of an idea about. A week will go by and I'll work on a different quest concept. The one I'm currently messing with is:

>Defense Budget Auditor Quest

Can you save humanity? While worrying about munitions cost and property damage?

>>29802123

I actually thought about something like this. Playing as a Red/White aligned planeswalker who travels the planes in search of inspiration for her art. Her powers would involve the creation and destruction of artifacts and enchantments (her artwork).

I had her with a bodyguard companion, but it all got a little too /u/ for me.

The idea was that a favorite plane of hers got fucked up by a mad man with a horrible view of his own 'art': horrifying biological experiments, the results of which he augments himself with. An utterly insane narcissist obsessed with self improvement (blueblackgreen planeswalker, obviously). And her journey to find him while attempting to bring peace and enrich the worlds she leaves behind.

You don't have to have a skill set for your character, especially if you want to run it more narrative-focused and with few rolls here and there. If you want to implement a skill system, it needs to be simple to keep track of, have only a few important skills in there that are appropriate for the quest and the character.

My plan for post-mending storyline events is to have the quest take place at the "start" of most of them. Alara would be just as the shards begin to merge. Innistrad will have Avacyn sealed in the Helvault. Without the player's interaction, the events in the block will slowly play out in the background, but you'd be free to go shake things up if that was something you wanted to do.

For Ravnica I'd just be ignoring the events of the recent novel, partly because I haven't read The Secretist, partly because of how polarizing Jace's involvement is it was and partly because what most people care about with Ravnica is the setting and I have enough good plot-hooks for there already.

I feel like if I introduced Jace the players would just want to go find a way to beat him up.

There is no way you would be able to write a gate quest without pissing off people or completely forgoing even mentioning demigods in that setting.

Mostly because for a series that touts the differences between fairy magic and real technology, demigods are donut steel characters that would put pretty much any bullshit plothax character to shame. You would have to spend an entire chapter just going over how original and powerful they were, and how bullets can't hurt them, explosions won't kill them, and they are immortal.

Besides, what was actually suggested was having Robin make out with Vance while Kat watched, which is more or less the same thing as NTR, minus the sex. As for it being cheating, while it wouldn't technically be since there's no actual confirmed/agreed upon relationship, Kat's more into Robin than she is into Vance.

There's a faint... something, behind the way people play, the way they judge the world, that represents a fundamental... maladaption. The extreme acceptance of the virgin/whore dichotomy*. The clinginess. The paranoia about their partner cheating. The weird, arcane requirements in sexual/romantic partners. It's like... there's a reason why /tg/ is full of virgins?

Women who have premarital sex are at substantially heightened risk of failed marriages. I don't have the exact numbers, but it's a drop from something like 80% to 60%*. I suppose if she doesn't care about getting married one day, it's fine. Otherwise it's like someone with a family history of alcoholism getting really drunk: a fucking stupid thing you should not do, even if things work out okay.

*: For men it's from ~95% to ~60%, so they shouldn't have premarital sex either.

Unambiguous successes (not separated or divorced): 94.38% (waited for marriage men), 83.64% (virgins until they got engaged men), 65.93% (lost their virginity to their steady gal men); 81.35% (waited for marriage women), 67.78% (virgins until they got engaged women), 63.45% (lost their virginity to their steady guy women).

You can always run more, maybe slowly introduce ideas you'll want to try out instead of throwing them all in and creating a mess. See what fits, what doesn't, slowly flesh things out as the story progresses - you get the idea. Start with fantasy being the overall theme (so dragons, elves, that stuff) and postapocalypse as the second (for example, Dark Sun). Then slowly introduce other elements - maybe the reason for the apocalypse was magic, eldritch horrors, or a war with ridiculously deadly technology that's almost magical?
Sorry I couldn't be of more help, man. Best advice would be to pick a few things you really like and think them over in your head, how they'd mash and fit together. Maybe write them down on some paper and roll for them if you're really indecisive.

>Results We identified 28 eligible studies. These studies enrolled 1833 participants with GID (1093 male-to-female, 801 female-to-male) who underwent sex reassignment that included hormonal therapies. All the studies were observational and most lacked controls. Pooling across studies shows that after sex reassignment, 80% of individuals with GID reported significant improvement in gender dysphoria (95% CI = 68–89%; 8 studies; I2 = 82%); 78% reported significant improvement in psychological symptoms (95% CI = 56–94%; 7 studies; I2 = 86%); 80% reported significant improvement in quality of life (95% CI = 72–88%; 16 studies; I2 = 78%); and 72% reported significant improvement in sexual function (95% CI = 60–81%; 15 studies; I2 = 78%).

You haven't played the Heart of the Swarm? The Primal Zerg were the first ones developed by the Xel'Naga, and are all individual fuckers with evolution abilities cranked up to eleven. Basically the first Zerg before their makers decided to reign them in and have the Overmind overlook them. Left to their own devices, they evolved almost completely separately from the Swarm we know and love from StarCraft I.

With the right voting rules those are kept minimal enough not to be a huge issue.

As >>29806962 said, enough extra votes appear to make the proxy idea seem unlikely.

Some people prefer not to think of SC fluff past the first game and its expansion.

Fair enough. Though that quest would have us play as one of them, so, you know.

No since I refuse to even pirate that piece of shit, but I do know of all the retcons and if anyone honestly thought running a Noble Savage Zerg Quest was a good idea, they're a fucking idiot. Besides, it wouldnt be much different from your average Bioweapon styled quest of

Yet they look and act exactly the same. Yes, we all know how shit HotS was, so I don't see why anyone would run a quest on it.

Always when the quest general hits bump limit.

Only people who haven't played it think that the primal zerg are like this. In the actual game, the go out of their way to portray the primal zerg as nothing but a bunch of self-centered, backstabbing dickbags who are even worse than the swarm zerg.

Why does anyone think a 1/anything chance to fuck up no matter what is a good thing?

Hey I got my own misarchivist, and only after one and a half threads!
To said anon: Sir if you could take the time to read my threads I would greatly appreciate it, as your current slanderous lies do not even accurately reflect the awful things that I am doing. /tg/ deserves to understand the filth that I am delivering to them and your current accusations of "lesbians" and "yuri" do not accurately reflect my deviance. Thank you.

Because it's a chance to create drama and make things interesting. Otherwise it comes down to the QM deciding and people can get really pissy.
