As a QM I'm biased, but I actually love /tg/, both as a board to discuss traditional game and as a convenient place where I can run quests.

The board is not fast enough for quest threads to do any significant damage to experience of people who for one reason or another dislike quests. Especially with addition of the catalog in base functionality there is literally no way a good thread would be in danger of drowning in quests. So, instead of complaining about quests, how about you start a good thread about something else? Maybe it'll capture some quest players and kill off some bad quest while you're at it.

Why don't you leave if you don't like /tg/?

Instead of contributing or doing anything of board relevance, you sit here and whine. Go in a thread, ask about a game, offer advice or participate in storytime, instead of just complaining. If you care about /tg/ so much, then to things that are of board relevance, instead of sitting on the sides, commenting how things were better before, and doing nothing to change how things are now.

Come on, lets do it. Instead of having another shitty thread about quests and why they do or don't belong here, tell me about your games or what do you enjoy doing that's /tg/ related. Or, if you want to keep with the topic (not that we had one), let's do this. How would you throw in the Death Note in a campaign? An artifact that only Gods of Death have any access to? Or something dropped by trickster demons to fuck with people?

>> No.29809207

Let's not pretend its me who is the problem here.

Questers don't just have quest threads, they talk about quests in other threads and even have meta threads for their quests.

Questers don't just shit up quest threads. A large portion of the board has never even played a traditional game, but feels a need to give their opinions about them.

You have solved your own problem.

You choose to piss and moan about it because you have just as much autonomy to do so on an anonymous image board as anyone else. You are not afforded special posting privilege because you happen to not enjoy quests, and neither are questers for the opposite reason.

That you continue to prescribe an outcome you have repeatedly admitted to ignoring outright is speaking out of both sides of your mouth. You are bitching just to bitch.

The list of things in that image are as follows:
>Quest Threads
Communal storytelling is the oldest traditional game there is, before rules were even drafted for the concept of a 'game'. The notion that they're not board related because you don't have little miniatures or stat sheets or die rolls is asinine (and most of them do anyways, in some capacity), and the mods agree. Cry more.

Communal. Storytelling. The fact that the appeal of the story is erotic rather than adventurous is a matter of taste, not the core of the concept itself. And you're doubly fucking butthurt on this one because the ERP doesn't even HAPPEN HERE. If ERP threads aren't allowed, then neither should Warhammer or Magic the Gathering, because the threads are just people talking about playing the games, which is by your definition insufficient to be board related.

>Weekend Smut Threads
Nobody just shows up and starts posting unrelated porn. Everything is board culture related, which you would know if you even cast a glance at the writefaggotry, which is like 95% Warhammer 40K related. NSFW material is reported and deleted as per the board rules.

You just have a stick up your ass about things that don't fall into your very narrow view of what a game is, and apparently anything with an erotic overtone or subject matter is immediately invalidated no matter the context or the ACTUAL CORE FUCKING CONCEPT OF WHAT THE PEOPLE ARE DOING.

So no, bro. You eat a bag of dicks. Or suck moot's until he changes the board into exactly what you want it to be. Until then, quit bitching about other peoples' fun and hide the threads you don't like if they're so insufferable.
