String comment = "This board is for author-driven collaborative storytelling (i.e., "Quests"). In a quest there is a single author who controls the plot of the story and who drives the creative process. They can choose to take suggestions from other posters, or not, at their sole discretion. Quests can be text-based, image-based, or a combination of the two. Drawfaggotry is strongly encouraged!
To facilitate the author-driven nature of quests, /qst/ differs significantly from other boards in that the OP of a thread is considered the quest's author, and has some basic text formatting abilities: [b], [i], and color tags [red], [green], and [blue]. Therefore, only those people willing to put in the effort to be a quest author should post threads. If you do not intend to run a collaborative story, do not post a thread here! This includes meta-threads.
Dice rolling follows /tg/'s format (e.g., "dice+2d6" without the quotes in the options field rolls 2d6).";

String comment = "This is a thread created for the discussion of quests and all things regarding them, as well as general whinging about different platforms and fatalistic predictions about the board's future.
Please do not shitpost and please ignore at any shit posters attempting to derail discussion or cause strife. Or at the very least make your shitposts entertaining. Outing yourself as severely mentally handicapped for example, while briefly entertaining, sort of derails discussion like nothing else.
Useful links: https://pastebin.com/C0pc9V21 (1/12/2019)
This link contains numerous writing guides, general advice, and various quest tools and communities. It is recommended that you give this a glance if it's your first time to the board and highly recommended if you are thinking about QMing. (Under revisions.)
This is a directories containing the tweets of many current QMs. While a twitter is by no means mandatory, it is a useful tool for both you and your players. To get added to the second list, tweet @tgQuestList. (As of 1/12/2019 the admin of this directory is MIA so probably no more people will be added. It's also full of spam via retweets from idiots so this directory might be dropped entirely in the near future.)
Discord server: https://discord.gg/ZgBR5gy
Can provide useful feedback and critique to QMs looking for help and is another way to promote your quest. Is also a way for players to get in touch with their QMs if they are also on the Discord. (Useful) Channels available include general quest discussion, a testing bed for mechanics, pitching quest ideas for feedback, and an update channel to showcase your quest going live or updating. The only rule is if you need to shitpost at least be entertaining about it.
Archive of quest reviews (We recently got an influx of a few reviews and it would be cool to see it continue. This may sound shocking, but people like to hear opinions about quests. If you're feeling saucy then you ought to take a crack at it. It's not like you have a reputation to ruin.)
Has your quest completely changed from when you first started writing and envisioning it to where it currently is at? How so and why do you think it happened?
How often if ever do you use the Write in/Other function in the quests you play? This can include extra dialogue or commands after a normal vote instead a big custom vote. Or do you prefer voting for the prompt as is?
Regarding the OP and pastebins, what do you think needs changing or needs to be added?"

Every child in Cantôn knows of the Knight’s Code. From peasant-born waifs playing with sticks in the mud to keen-eyed noble sons practicing with cold steel in the training yard, all have at the very least dreamed of one day becoming a knight themselves. To ride out on errantry into the Five Duchies Kingdom and beyond for God and Glory, bringing the Law of Adam to the wicked and the Blade of Cain to the beast.
The Knights of Cantôn are sworn to follow the Code, to obey the King, to refuse no call for aid honestly asked for, to seek out and destroy the Foe wherever it may lurk and rid the world of evil.
Were it so easy…

Since that fateful day, the Saiyans have earned the title of warrior race as Freeza’s soldiers, leading the charge onto hundreds of worlds and facing down all who oppose Lord Freeza’s rule. As mighty conquerors crushing all resistance, the Saiyans have earned their reputation as Freeza’s most powerful subjects. The larger than life tales of the Saiyans, and especially the Super Saiyans, have spread to most every corner of the universe now. With the Covenant’s failed 30,000-warship siege of New Salda televised live across much the civilized universe, as well as your family’s feats in Dreadzone, most everyone now knows the names of your family and what all you can do.

You the players control Karn, a Saiyan with a base powerlevel of 2,250,000, a general in Lord Freeza’s army, mate to Meloka, father of five, chosen champion of New Salda, wielder of the Stand Dragon Force, an idol to the other Saiyans and the rest of the PTO, and a household name across the civilized universe.

A week ago, you woke to find the earth you knew had been stolen from you, replaced by an alien orb that grows, breathes, and bleeds. In this new world of flesh and sinew you’ve found you’re not alone, a revelation that brought horror and relief in equal measure. Hideous amalgams of man and beast stalk the fleshscape while Daughters, people like you with strange and impossible powers, struggle in a unified goal of locating something only known as the Cord.
Despite overwhelming odds, you’ve managed to make a handful of friends in this pulsing hell, your two closest ones having decided to join you in your journey across plains of skin and storms of acid. The first is a black-haired, emerald-eyed girl by the name of Isabelle, though she prefers to go by her old screen name B’ni. Her boundless enthusiasm and keen sense of combat have served you well, keeping both your sanity and your life intact several times over.
The second is a technical savant with more waves of brown hair than she knows what to do with. Going by Gina, her eyeless sockets serve as a permanent reminder of an old friend’s betrayal, and she wields an external nervous system to mentally link with friend and foe alike. While normally closed off she has slowly begun to open up to you, and you’re currently journeying to grant her closure regarding her friend-turned foe.
However, right now your focus is solely on yourself…or rather, who you used to be.

You comfort Boneclaw and promise him many delicious corpses in the future, and no spiders!
It calms him down, but he's still sad about the missed meal, so he sits down in the corner and You go examine the dead arachnid.
It's vivid colours, round, robust abdomen and astonishing size tell You that it's a female member of some unknown species from the Misunema genus, in layman terms - a giant Flower Crab Spider.
It's no wonder Boneclaw didn't want to eat it, the meat has a nasty gooey texture and the colour of old vomit.
A faint haze rises from the dead body (in moments like these You're grateful master didn't give you a nose), this isn't normal - it seems a diet of magical ingredients made the spider highly toxic.
With the beast dead, You're free to poke about the summoning chamber as you please, maybe there'll be some clues as to where Master dissapeared?";

You are Sonia Reynard, Viscount of Rioja and a member of House Jerik-Dremine!
It is mid 4042 and you've returned to the world of your birth. A planet wracked with civil unrest and upheaval. Count Gernot Sigurd Jerikis has been laid to rest, his son Caius Jerik having now taken up the mantle of leadership.
The Jerik-Dremine Emergency Council has stepped down having acceded to the Barons demands. In return Dreminth and Torun will retain their new rights to elected Governors. The homeworlds are now occupied by armies from Rioja and Alaior. Your troops are focused largely on holding the critical population centers of Dreminth while Alex's are split between supporting you and assisting on Torun and Loran.
Governor Harmen has largely restored order on his world. Troy has been helping on that front. Dreminth remains a potential hotbed of rebellious activity but things are quieting down with the civilians returning to their homes from the shelters.
Torun is in a more difficult situation due to the slow process of re-equipping Baron Saputo's army. Much of the planetary defense force on that world are considered disloyal due to their support of the rebellion. Screening and replacing them will be a lengthy process which will likely be made worse by the current Governor. Dejan Holtby was re-elected by a narrow margin and has been rapidly moving to solidify his position once more.
So far major incidents with the occupation forces have been avoided, though there are exceptions. Soldiers from your somewhat overstretched army fired on civilians, apparently believing they were under attack. They and their comrades are currently in court martial proceedings. Following a 12 hour media blackout the new Count addressed the populace on the matter promising a full investigation and his intent to uphold the law.
A number of groups, including militias that have not yet disarmed, are furious over the incident. Despite this leaders are still calling for calm. Despite a few protests it looks like you might get through this without more riots.
Despite the situation still being in flux plans are being drawn up for the eventual withdrawal of troops back to their worlds. Reserves currently in Shallan space are preparing to redeploy back to the homeworlds. They'll be replaced with Emergency Council supporters sentenced to front line service."

At the very least, allowing her her indulgences during the downtime will be fair enough. “I’m not so inclined to do such…” The Prince’s face falls-
-just in time to let Izumi speak up. “However, if she doesn’t mind, I think you’ll find my own skills more than capable. I would welcome doing so in exchange for the support your men showed me in battle.” As if she couldn’t have handled it...well, whatever.
“Really?” His face quickly brightens. “Then by all means! Come, let me show you where the worst of them are...”
“Grand.” You sigh. “If you don’t mind, I’d like to learn about the enemy a LITTLE bit more in the meantime.”
“Ah, yes, of course. You’ll want to speak to the keep captain, then- is Parcelus still alive?” The last bit he asks at the few people with him.
“He is, sire.” One of the healers says. “Only faint injures- he wishes them to heal on their own.”
“Likely on the walls, then,” the Prince says. “Find him there- he knows as much about these fiends as anyone, but I’ll be along presently.” With that, he turns to Izumi. “Come, miss. In particular there are a few we would be greatly benefitted by getting them back on their feet…”

It’s no great feat to get to the walls, and it’s equally not hard to find the captain- a robust, tanned fellow, a linebacker’s stout build on him. He’s armored up immensely- in all but his helmet, he cuts a figure of a steel wall that’d be hard to move. He’s quick to see you, and his head tilting backwards is what you get out of him in regards to first impressions. “So...you’re what the Prince got desperate enough to call for help from?”
Wow, does he not sound happy to see you. “Captain Parcelus, I presume?”
He nods with a grunt. “You’ve the right of it. And you’re the mimic of a human here to take advantage of our situation. Whatever you want from me, make it quick. I’ve fortifications to oversee and help repair.”
>You need to know what, other than shadow creatures you’ll be facing from your opponent.
>What happened to the other alliance members? You’ve seen nothing but humans (and, okay, maybe one or two beastmen) so far.
>What does the nearby area look like? Anything outstanding to watch out for?

He rendered you down into paint, and then coated his brush with your essence and recreated you brush stroke by brush stroke as a giant of a monk whose mountainside temple overlooked a golden valley. War came to your valley, and you descended from the mountain to punish the sinful invaders for disturbing it's tranquility.
The blood and the violence stained your soul, seeped into you and made you an Oni, but they also freed your mind. The further you were from the serenity of your temple, the more you lost that detached spirituality you had cultivated there, the more you began to remember. Remember that you were not always a monk, nor an ogre, that you had been a young man with a family and dreams of medical school once. So you planned your escape, and chased half remembered dreams of the mortal world, of the time before, and now you have escaped Arcadia and made it back.
With the assistance of Nikolai King of the Colorless and Natalia you’ve found your way to El Lobo’s Fight Club. El Lobo, recently elevated Baron of the Summer Court, is holding a tournament to celebrate. You’ve entered the tournament in order to catch his attention, as you need to consult with him regarding the Day of the Dead.
