Drowned Quest Redux 28

You are Charlotte Fawkins, dashing heroine, detective, adventuress, heiress, sorceress, etcetera. Three years ago, you drowned yourself in a quest to find a long-lost family heirloom; nowadays, you're just nobly c̶a̶u̶s̶i̶n̶g solving problems with the help of un-trusty advisor(?) Richard and trusty retainer Gil. Inexplicably, many people "dislike" you, though you've never done anything wrong in your life.

Right now, you are plotting out the party make-up for the expedition to rescue your kidnapped frenemy Madrigal.

-

It all comes rather easily to mind, once you flop back down on your cot and stare up at the ceiling. Of <span class="mu-i">course</span> this day will go better than the last, because today is the day you're going to bust in and rescue Madrigal. Single-handedly.

«You have to be joking.»

Oh? Oh, damn. Richard's draped over the edge of your cot, back to his usual dead-eyed self. Is he hungover?

«Why would I be hungover.»

Because he— because he was piss-drunk last night? <span class="mu-i">So</span> piss-drunk, in fact, that he didn't bother waking you up while you were being physically dragged out to the Fen <span class="mu-i">and</span> back home? Unless he didn't bother because you slammed the door on him, but— but, look, it was <span class="mu-i">freaky</span> how drunk he was. He was acting <span class="mu-i">freaky.</span> Does he even remember any of it?

«I don't see how this is relevant to the present topic of conversation.»

You're unsure whether that means "yes, and I'm embarrassed" or "no, and I'm embarrassed," but you're considering it a win in any case. And what was the topic of conversation? That you were joking? Because no, you do fully plan on rescuing—

«'Single-handedly.' Your bumbling will obviously necessitate my help.»
«Not to mention your pet. What is the purpose of him if you do not allow him to sacrifice himself in your stead.»

What? You're not <span class="mu-i">sacrificing</span> Gil. You just told him—

«Highly confidential speculation about myself. How <classy> of you.»
«Nevertheless, all the better for sacrificing. I believe he will even do it willingly.»

It is way too early in the— you are <span class="mu-i">not</span> sacrificing Gil, okay? You probably will bring him along, since he's your retainer, and he has a gun and stuff. In a pinch he might even shoot it. And he can do... beetle things. Yeah! So of course you're bringing him. You never know when you need beetle things. And— and look, when you said 'single-handedly,' it was kind of a figure of speech. Because you have been thinking about who else to bring along, and you've more-or-less narrowed it down. Besides yourself and Gil, you're going to bring <span class="mu-i">Monty, Eloise, Lucky, and Annie.</span>

«...»
«How unbelievably stupid.»

What? You've thoroughly—

«Two men who hate you, a useless frivolous woman, and a— I cannot emphasize this enough— a worm. A literal worm. A mindless creature that lives in the ground.»

40k Minor Xenos Quest: A Struggle To Survive, Stage One: Evolution

ID:l64aGg1g No.5394100 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
>In the 40th millennium, the God Emperor of Mankind sits astride His Throne on Terra, shackled in torment as He lights an inferno in the immaterium, fueled by a thousand psyker’s souls consigned to oblivion each day. Across the galaxy, quintillions of men and women struggle, suffer, and take their stand in His Name against the numberless horrors that threaten to destroy them from within and without. They are the Imperium of Man, their hearts filled with relentless hate, and over millions of bloodstained battlefields, they and theirs return the hostility inflicted on them tenfold. It is not the 40th millennium, and this is not their story.

>This is the story of another species, risen to prominence on an alien rock that never has and never will know the nurturing warmth of Sol. They are Xenos, as far from the genetic legacy of Terra as the east is from the west. To the Imperium: Other, Anathema, an INSULT to Mankind’s existence that cannot and must not be allowed to endure. To themselves, they are the only thing they can truly count on in a galaxy gone mad. In time, the Great Crusade of Mankind will discover their existence and in a crucible of fire and fury, their right to be will be earned or it will be extinguished.

In time… First, they have to evolve and before we can get into that, you’ll need to decide on their evolutionary context. The choices to follow are simple but fundamental and will shape every aspect of their eventual physiology. Choose one per category and the vote will be tallied after roughly 24-36 hours, barring a clear supermajority.

Dragonborn Antipaladin Quest Volume 5

ID:9WrABUif No.5410693 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
The Drow—so-called ‘dark elves’, the jet-black underground outcast of their race—call this place, their capital city, ‘Wevenore’. According to Jazkarmel, one of the many nobleborn elf-maids to bear the title of ‘Princess’ in this realm, it is also called ‘The Oasis of Crystal and Silk’. In spite of her evident pride in her race, in their survival of the harsh and impoverished isolation of the underdark, Jazkarmel warned you to lower your expectation of this place, even as she guided you here to meet with her people’s highest authorities.

Now, you see why.

This place IS a relative oasis, it must be said. You recognize, intellectually, that it is a wonder: a city built around the shores of deeply-buried lake, expansive in its sprawl and home to more elves than you have ever personally laid eyes on. So, too, do you bear witness to the namesake crystals and silk. The crystals, mostly quartz but also several more precious varieties, blaze with the dim light of magecraft, scattered like beacons through the dark, JUST bright enough to lend colour to the natives’ monochromatic darkvision in the public plazas and to the distantly-glimpsed courtyards of what you take to be powerful households. The silk—threads of corded, treated spider-thread—connect these places-of-power, and you see eight-legged messengers carrying messages and packages in bundles from one home to another in scurrying silence.

“It is as the worms of Glowie’s race,” the Novice Fleshweaver—one f your companions on this pilgrimage—notes.

You nod, but you recognize the limitations at the same time as you recognize the sophistication.

Fall of the Regime: 3rd Term

¡MIENTRAS TANTO!
https://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=Fall%20of%20the%20Regime

Hail, Samuel "Chainsaw" Evil, our glorious leader! You are the rightful sovereign of this glorious nation of Paneira, through your firm but benevolent leadership you have advanced the people of this country. Although some foreign nations decry you as a dictator, you are loved and respected by your populace. Your military stand strong to defend this country, and your bureaucrats fair and just. Truly, it is by your immortal, Lich hands that this nation is great.

Or so it would seem.

In truth, it's not easy to manage a country. While you've successfully cooperated with Zayyine in return for a dozen Aqrab light tanks, there's still the question of who's been stealing Zayyine weaponry. Then, you've used magic to speak to the giant alien woman whose name is Astra - but also accidentally created a mad scientist. Then there's Soleil killing yet another citizen - which turns out to be an Eisen Doctrine remnant. Good thing you've cut a deal with the new underworld boss. Afterwards, you accidentally personally surveyed an ancient ruin which contains an extinct empire's library and another lich, among other things. After befriending the lich, you turned the ruin into a secret laboratory that studies the supernatural - when the Zayyine leader calls to say he'd sent all 12 Aqrabs. But wait, you've only received 6!

It's not easy being a dictator!

>What is a quest?
An interactive story in which the QM (Quest Master, Quester Molester, Queer Masochist) writes and provides the readers with options on how to proceed. Dice may or may not be included due to on-site functionality.

Questionably Useful links:

A collection of guides which may or may not still be active, but can be good for general writing advice to avoid common beginner's traps. Badly in need of renovation.

>Archive of quest reviews: http://pastebin.com/u/QuestReviewsArchive
Worth reading through, because the best way to figure out how a quest might go right or wrong is to see how it's been done before.

Fate City Akeldama 3

And we’re back! Low Speed Anti-Divine QM here, welcome to thread 3!

Quick recap of thread 2: Anon and his Avenger of Red fought off Kuro no Lancer’s clones (and later discerned his True Name to be Sun Wukong), palled around with Truvietianne, Rushorou, Matsuda, and their Servants for a while, blew a couple of shipborne Servants to smithereens, had a somewhat inconclusive but edifying spar with Matsuda, got a map of the city from Caster of Black, and started investigating part of the southwest section with Truvietianne and her Servant. Lastly, an unknown Servant announced their presence in spite of Anon’s earlier show of force.

Hello! We will be playing 3.5e DnD with a single level 1 character. The character will have a curse that causes everyone in a forty foot radius to be attracted to him/her and the NPCs will attempt to fuck our character at every turn. We must begin by creating a character. I’ll handle the brunt of it but I’ll need you all to fill in the cosmetic details that make this an actual character. I’ll pick the most popular options or I’ll just pick winners at random. We won’t use alignment because that would be silly for this sort of game.

Bones Quest #20: Overtime

!!ehWv9n5C1mz ID:APGk+s4L No.5416450 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
You’re <span class="mu-s">STANLEY PARBLE</span>: a girl with a weird name and an even weirder tale: after a <span class="mu-r">CENTURIES-OLD LICH</span> woke up during your graveyard shift at the <span class="mu-g">GOOD BOY DOGGIE BONE</span> factory, your simple life of janitorial work became a bit more… Complicated.
https://youtu.be/_wiwdlu-Zg0
Sure, you became pals with your now-sentient skeleton (you named him <span class="mu-g">LY</span>) AND gained some nifty <span class="mu-b">SUPER POWERS</span> from eating <span class="mu-b">MAGICAL BONE MARROW</span>, but that doesn’t change the fact that your hometown of <span class="mu-g">CLEARWATER, CALIFORNIA</span> is overrun by <span class="mu-r">HOMICIDAL SKELETONS!</span> Even worse, the guy in charge is dead-set on taking over the rest of the world while he’s at it! <span class="mu-s">Not cool!</span>

Well, he <span class="mu-i">was</span> dead-set on it, at least. Now he’s just <span class="mu-s">DEAD</span>, save for his <span class="mu-b">GLOWING SKULL</span> you keep hidden while you’re figuring out what to do with it. There are a few loose ends to tie, of course, but despite your unease and growing evidence to the contrary, your quest is <span class="mu-s">over</span>.

After defeating <span class="mu-r">TIM</span>, time, well, got a little fuzzy. You touched base with Sybil and Art, of course–both of whom have no intention of stopping in their pursuit of the jackasses who caused this whole mess. You even reconnected with your brother Sue, too, who’s got a baby on the way and offered you a new life in Vermont with his wife Heather! Turns out she isn’t that big of an <span class="mu-r">ART BITCH</span> as you remember her being!

Having buried the hatchet, you moved on to more… <span class="mu-i">personal</span>... priorities, namely going on that first date Talbot promised you shortly before becoming a puppet of evil and trying to kill you. The outing was a chaotic, but unexpectedly <span class="mu-s">SMASHING</span> success, and after spending a few days with the big lug it’s pretty clear you’re gonna keep him around, if only for a little while longer.

There’s still more to cover, however–chief among them the meeting you had scheduled with <span class="mu-g">GOOD BOY.</span> Called into their recently-reconstructed corporate office, the members of the so-called ‘<span class="mu-g">BOARD</span>’ have a proposition for you… one that’s much bigger than a bonus!

Your story, for the time being, is over… but what is an end if not the beginning of something new?
