Someone's probably said it before, but honestly, it's very similar to running a tabletop game, like D&D, except everyone's controlling the same character. So really, the secret is remembering that the random elements in the game are the fact you've got potentially dozens of people coming up with things to do.

Pick what works, roll with the rest. And remember: you can always give characters agency. If people aren't playing along or just being butts, the character can point that out. If anything, it's a good way to handle it:

I think we're on the wrong track on Dr. Trey avoiding people from the City - he's got Kazu as an assistant, after all, so his antipathy towards city-folk can't be THAT strong, whatever his reasons for wanting to remain anonymous.

If he's actively avoiding Cat now (as opposed to earlier, when he tolerated being in the same bar as Cat) it may be he's realized they've got some kind of past together, or because he already knows Cat can detect him (i.e. Isabella, Cannie or Iraphena told him and he's actually under the thumb of Nunitus).

Do fish people in Catalyst live on land or water if they exist in your universe, and if on land, do they have something that let's them breath on land?
>>
No. 135328 ID: afe7de

Oh man so there’s a sub-type of Kin called Scale-Kin, they’re basically any amphibious race and reptiles, it’s a catch all term. You can find fish headed people (kind of like the cuphead lady) and also just regular fish people. But they need to be hydrated often. My headcanon for them was that they had these water headphones they wear on their gills that keep them hydrated. That or something like they could wear a fishbowl choker that’s full of water making it easy for them to be on land. I’m also down for other suggestions. Introducing a fish person eventually in the future could be neat!

Why restrict ourselves to fishpeople? Why not starfishmen! Crabfolk! (carcinization had to have its due...) Shellkin! Jellypeople!

As for breathing, eh, maybe just lampshade it? They simply CAN be on both land and under sea. The world's their oyster, 'n all that jazz.

'Because nothing says quality like a 16x16 image!' - Cirr, as paraphrased by Lago as best as he could remember it after, instead of adding the following edit, he completely overwrote the whole post with it.

Lagotrope edit: To have a favicon added, I need author approval. Hence, the author of the respective quest must either post the favicon themselves or, if a favicon they like is already in the thread somewhere, refer to the favicon's post number and approve it. Either way, please supply the URL to the quest as well, thank you.

In short I need 3 things: author approval, the favicon, and the quest link.

Post your amazing fanarts for your favorite quests here! The old thread has become filled with too much art, so it's time to start again. Commissions of quest characters you bought are cool to post. Authors can also post extra images of their quest characters here (you can be a fan of your own quest!) Cool kids label their fanart with character and quest names.

a few words on the interlude:

le interlude was basically covering everything that I thought up for pt. 1 choice options that y'all didn't choose. If you had hung out with Margot or Kibble, you would have gotten their backstories, if you had visited your sleeping body while you were a soul the first time, you would have seen Body's soul, which used to have a weird design (see attached.)

i also wanted to give a bunch of exposition more actively rather have the characters just tell evelyn everything. it helps to have the experienced character as the narrator, since she actually knows stuff about the magic world.

anyway, now that that's out of the way we can go back to the good stuff, hating duck's head

Can we see the unlock requirements for skills that we've seen at least once?

Here are my guesses:
MOVE MOVE MOVE(double move has no penalty while using heavy weapon): use a heavy weapon during a mission.
Area Denial(burst fire aoe): use a heavy weapon during a mission and hit multiple targets in one turn?
Hit The Deck! (explosion resistance, but go prone): take explosion damage and live.
Medic(3 uses of medkit): use a medkit.
Nimble (extra CQC dodge): get hit multiple times by CQC attacks.
Presence (ranged calm, adjacent calm is 100% accurate): calm a unit
Shotgun Surgeon (extra damage with guns at point blank): shoot something with a shotgun at point blank? just realized this applies to ALL guns.
Headlong Charge (dodge enemy lookout): move when enemies are visible
Steady (extra damage when aiming): aim then shoot, may require a kill.
Walking Fire (aim bonus after a miss): miss multiple times?
CQC Specialist (melee damage bonus): defeat an enemy in CQC
Heavy Hitter (armor piercing): shoot an enemy with high armor multiple times? kill heavily armored enemies?
Eagle Eye (lookout with sniper rifle costs 1 action instead of 2): kill things with a sniper rifle? might require going on lookout at least once, but Baetriss never went on lookout with the sniper rifle, only with her shotgun.
Tough As Nails (resist panic once, Wounded at 1/3 health instead of 1/2): complete multiple missions without being wounded.
Guts (death/injury resistance): take a large amount of total damage during a mission?
Efficient Stowage (carry an item in addition to heavy weapon ammo): use a lot of heavy weapon ammo during a mission? or use heavy weapons in multiple missions?
Adrenaline High (excitement lasts longer): get excited a lot

Just because you follow a god of death doesn't mean you hate the god of life. Life does not exist without death, and vice versa. I don't really get the whole "anti-life" thing especially considering Ndepthteph is depicted as a worm, which is a living organism, but I do know that if the worship of her revolves around the fact that life as we know it came about in opposition to her, it'd be more like worshipping the concept of emptiness, or wishing that life did not exist to begin with. And that's not exactly a religion that would inspire fanaticism without also inspiring mass suicide or open war. A religion that wants to remove all life would outlaw reproduction, as well, which means their numbers would go down fairly quickly over time.

Yeah, sure, clues. I'm sorry but that's just not a good method of explaining lore that gives needed context to an existing conflict when the lore involved is something the main character should know. We should at least know the basics, and despite my repeated attempts to get ganymede to fucking SAY ANYTHING ABOUT IT, I don't know the basics. For example, before you explicitly said that Ndepthteph is the goddess of anti-life I just thought she was the first to be born. The first life, not some kind of paradoxical life that is also anti-life.

I’m really enjoying this worldbuilding
I wonder, do Arthocobs have cults placing emphasis on specific deities, such as the Romans had? The preacher from the first thread being crazy and clearly unwelcome in the village makes it seem that the worship of Ndepthteph is a fringe belief if not outright heresy, but he could still just be an outlier in a larger, more moderate religious faction.
though, granted, the nihilistic worship of inevitability and death itself probably doesn’t have broad appeal.

I promise there's only... 3% left of the current thread. And then the actual dating part will happen.

I understand how dumb it may be now, I couldn't help myself but try and establish a looming conflict that will affect everyone as the story rolls on. I've had readers who both like the direction it's going--but still speak up about its misleading title.

Arthocob Date began as something out of the blue with no thought for its future. But as all things I create--I start piling stuff on top to give it more... life?

Anyway, Ganymede will be able to date next thread. And it won't have to be exclusively to Eudora. Promise.

Oh no! Something happened with Candy and Marsh's enchantment stones and their souls ended up getting swapped. Now they're stuck in the other's body!

Thanks! (Sorry for being literally a month late to reply to this, things got busy again lol whoops, turns out interviews are a lot of work)

Now that that's all done with and I've got a job, my schedule is a lot more regular and predictable, so with any luck that'll translate to posting updates more regularly again.

I don't at the moment, but I might open something like that up eventually. Even if I don't do it, I really appreciate the thought regardless, so thank you.

Gladdening news on both the successful jobhunt and the (hopefully) more regular updates.

Keep us informed! I'd be happy to toss you some tokens of appreciation for all your fine work thus far.

(And, as an aside, nothing you set up has to offer commissions, special party favors or anything like that. The main benefit of supporting you is already you having put your interactive stories up here for us to play with.)

So maybe Mint was probably the one who gave the all clear symbol then. But then there would still be the question on why her reaction was apologizing and crying as Penny was falling unconscious. Maybe she was tricked in some way?

The Orchids definitely delivered a signal through Mint - triggering some sort of command or killswitch. I'm not sure that was an 'all-clear' signal, though, since the situation doesn't seem very 'clear' by anyone's definition.

It could be a failsafe thing, something intended to make Penny go buh-bye as if she'd ingested raw taffa and / or restoring her old sense of self as Ciobhan (hence the flashback chapter) or just a handy way to extract the dust samples Ciobhan's body got loaded up with (at least judging by the way things are going).

I feel that right in the middle of an update, 400+ updates after beginning the quest, is the most ideal timing for starting a discussion thread.

Seriously though it seems like I've been hemorrhaging readers lately. Which is something I'd really like to stop. I want to continue and eventually finish this quest but at a certain point that becomes impossible if there's nobody to actually read the goddamn thing. So, I really need some feedback. What am I doing right, what am I fucking up, what are things that I can do to not fuck up in the future? I can answer questions too if you have any.

I checked back here out of curiosity and it seems like someone bumped this thread. I don't know if anyone is still curious, but if you are, here's a status update.

The tech stuff went more or less according to schedule. I didn't finish what I intended to do, but I was progressing along at a good pace and I didn't hit a road block or anything. Still, it's clearly a losing proposition to try and make environments in CGI, since it takes too much time to prepare which nullifies any time savings down the road- I think it would be a smarter idea to switch the workflow and instead prepare the characters in advance and render them, while drawing the environments myself.

Anyway, problems with the tech stuff aren't why I haven't been updating the quest. I'm a very private person and I don't want to get into personal details but this has been an extremely difficult year for me, beginning from around February and going straight through to now. In all honesty the difficult circumstances have been going on for longer then that, although it progressed to a worse stage in February. I tried to write it off as time consuming 'hobbies' in one of the first posts in this thread. I'm not entirely sure why I did that except that I really don't want to depress people or involve them in my personal life... although it has the unintentional effect of making me look like a lazy, good for nothing asshole, instead of a stressed out asshole that's in a bad place. Anyway, that was responsible for a lot of the slow down last year, which progressed into a total stoppage this year.

I'm sorry for not coming back on here to give an update until now. I am still interested in continuing this, although it won't be for awhile yet. I still need to take care of a few things more before I can settle back into updating this. I think I'll also have to change my plans a little for the ques

Sorry to hear you've been going through a rough patch lately and hope it get's better soon. Just remember though that you should worry about yourself first and if life is kicking you in the groin don't feel bad for taking time to try and let things sort themselves out. While I wouldn't mind seeing this quest come back the idea of a quest is to be fun, for both YOU and the reader. So don't feel the need to force yourself to do something if you're not enjoying it.

Again though, glad to hear that you're alright even if things haven't been going to smoothly and hope that it clears up soon. The 3D looks great.

Where else can we go? You’ve already taken away most of the autonomy we had, and expressed vehemently that we’re not going back to Ana before, still haven’t really forgiven or forgotten that one by the way. Here’s what is probably going to happen, I bet money this is what is going to happen knowing your track record.

So we’re dead, and something is going to come along and either resurrect us which is a long shot, but who knows maybe Laura and Dreamwalker will show up. But I’m willing to bet something else is gonna show up, offer us ANOTHER deal, because you seem to love that trope so much where the option is live or die, which you know, isn’t really a choice it’s just another railroad option. How’s that? That somewhere in the ball park?

Blackbeard:
Mercenary.
18 Million dollar bounty on his head.

Armaments:
Longarm:
Battle Rifle
Queen Ann's Revenge: A custom .95 JDE bullpup rifle with inertia operation recoil compensation, semi-automatic fire and a ten-round, detachable magazine. It weighs ninety pounds, and is one meter long.
Melee weapons
Cutlass:
Once it has tasted someone's blood, it can orient on them and continue to guide its bearer towards the unslain foe, until such time someone else bleeds on its edge.
Gladius:
Any stab wound made with this blade will continue to bleed at full force, even as blood pressure drops beneath a point where such output would continue. Until a wound is forcibly sealed, it will continue to bleed until the target runs out of blood.
Bastard Sword:
Able to rust and corrode metal armor of any form at a touch, and will cause leather armor to rot, cloth arm to dry and snap. It decays and ages only that which is not currently alive-to normal flesh, it is no more than a sharp blade.
