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 = "Valyria has fallen.
The greatest city the world has ever seen has died in the cataclysm that split the Land of the Long Summer, burnt away the cedars of Velos and signaled the end of an Era.
And yet its legacy persists, in the form of its colonies - Volantis and her ten sister-cities: Tyrosh, Myr, Norvos, Pentos, Lorath, Lys, Qohor, Bravos, Gogossos and Essaria – and the surviving cities on the border of the Valyrian heartland – Elyria, Mantarys, Tolos and their neighbors.
Dark omens abound these days - far to the North a dragonlord proclaimed himself Emperor of Valyria, while there are rumors of a mighty Khal uniting the barbarians of the East. The High King has apparently lost any interest in exerting royal authority on his fellow Sarnorian monarchs, letting the country slowly spiral into a cold war that could at any moment turn hot, pitting the Eastern Marches of the High Kingdom against its heartland. Belicho, the Archon of Essaria, appears posited to resign due to domestic pressure while an early winter is slowly setting in thanks to the ashes released in the atmosphere by the what many already call “the Doom”.
And yet…nothing of this seems to matter to Aegar Tagaros, Triarch of the Tiger party.
>“..only we are suited to reunite the Daughters of the Freehold, for Valyria lives on through its eldest daughter, mighty Volantis!”
A loud cheer erupts from the crowd, as said man speaks loudly from atop the stairs leading to the great doors in the Black Wall.
>“The Freehold shall endure. We survived the invasions of the Old Empire of Ghis, defeated the barbarians of the East and bent the Rhoynars to our will! We are the greatest civilization this world has ever known and We. Shall. Endure!”
A loud cheer erupts once more from the assembled crows of nobles, just as a similar, much louder one erupts from the commoners outside the Black Wall who are listening to the speech being delivered by and heralds. You can easily imagine the loud cheer propagating to the entire city as the speech is delivered in every street corner, plaza and market square by heralds.
You sigh as the Triarch continues on, already knowing how the speech will end.
>“Citizens! Brothers. Sisters. The world has gone dark and it falls upon us to ensure the light of civilization will shine on for the centuries to come. It is for this reason that I call upon you in this hour of need: the Freehold needs you, Volantis needs you.”
God, the man is so dramatic...
>“People forget that the soldiers who conquered the world were not dragons. No, they were common men and women like you and me! What our ancestors conquered, we shall reconquer with the sweat of our brow! Long live the Freehold! Long live Valyria!”
And so, with an incredibly loud cheer, the Century of Blood began.";

String comment = "From the fellow who did Otome Quest and SS13: You know, while there are a few quests in the flavor of building a civilization I have only seen the few where you become the Ruler themselves die at character creation. This thread here we will make the Ruler and go through their early years of life. After that, we shall experience their early years of life and how they became who they are upon assuming the throne.
Who knows, if we go fast enough we might be able to make something similar to Crusader Kings where its not just the Ruler you are playing, but a Dynasty. And since this is Fantasy, who knows what can happen in this world. Maybe you see a bunch of honey everywhere and search who left all the honey about, ending up with your Heir actually being a Bear.
We will probably be building the Character here for the next few days, then next week I will start the real meat of this event.
First Question is, what shall be the basis of being a ruler:
This here does not mean you wont have living subjects, but it is guaranteed you will start out as an Undead Lord in the flavor of creatures like Vlad von Carstein, Mordekaiser, and Ainz Ooal Gown. Your Rule is eternal, and thus there is no chance of forming a grand dynasty.
Generic, yes, but that also means you have everything a man could want. A realm to call your own, possibly a family line to rely upon, and lastly the fate to go fight some Orcs. Remember that depending on your choices, you might end up having a few shenanigans.
Greater than man, inhuman in thought, but still keen on the idea of civilization. This is quite vary as well, being that you can be things like Mazdamundi from Warhammer, Every Demon Lord Isekei Protagonist, or even an Ork warboss. However your aim is not to destroy the world and everything good in it I assume.
>Ruler of the End
Ah yes, just like Saron and Archeon the Everchosen you are what is suppose to be a troupe of Evil Demon Lord that seems to go amiss in today’s media. You seek to destroy everything Good and Nice in the world and either replace it or destroy it. You are the end game, and I guarantee you some plucky adventurers are going to come stop you!";

In this world, there are superheroes, and supervillains.
The year is 2029, and your name is Francis Harper.
You're an 18 year old senior highschool student, in a small east coast city in the US. You're just a bit north of Virginia Beach.
The name of your town is Cedarville.
There's a near-deafening fog-horn blaring.
Your eyes open to darkness, save for the dim light beginning to peek through your curtains. With a groan, you turn to see the alarm clock. It flashes red numbers. 6 AM. Another push, and you roll to a sitting position. You sniffle, shaking off the remnants of a cold. A final burst of willpower, and you leave your bed entirely to shuffle off to the bathroom.
On the way, you pass your mother's room. She's still fast asleep. She'll be heading to work in about two hours.
In the bathroom, you slap your hand around on the wall until you find the switch. When you turn it on, the stark light causes you to squint. As your eyes adjust, you take a glance at yourself in the mirror.
You're of an average build for your age, and average height. You have dirty blonde hair, and green eyes. Soft curls fall in front of your eyes, just barely. It's getting close to time for another haircut. After a quick shower, you head out your apartment building and down the stairs. It's another short walk to the bus stop.
There are a few other kids there, who you're amicable with. They're engaged in chatter as everyone waits for the bus.
A fresh-man girl turns to her older brother, a sophomore. She's showing him a news article on her phone. "There was this crazy kid in Florida who blocked a whole highway yesterday. He was in his underwear, except for a bucket on his head!"
They devolve into laughter. You have to admit, it is pretty ridiculous.
What do you do while you wait for the bus?
>A. See if there's any news on your own cellphone.
>B. Ask the other students about the news article they're reading
>C. Wait quietly, observe your surroundings.
>D. Message your friend Michael. He should already be at school, in the cafeteria.";

>Backroads to the East of Mooseleg Lake, Piscataquis County, Maine
>Returning to the ‘Big House’, Mt. Kineo
>Around 10:30am on 11/2/2020
>No Wind, Slightly Cloudy
Your name is Reginald Mantle – and as your convoy limps back to the questionable safety of Mooseleg Lake, you find yourself swamped in shame and pity for yourself. Your first ‘command’ has so far been an unmitigated disaster. On your watch, Midge, Gunther and Fleckkers were all injured – and in Fleckkers case, the injuries from the two gunshot wounds are serious enough to be life threatening, if he does not receive medical attention back at Mt. Kineo as soon as possible. And as a shit-cherry on top of the shit-sundae, with Fleckkers down for the count, you have been forced to abandon the Trash Truck that you took to replace the Short Bus that you lost. At the very least, you were able to recover everything that Fleckkers had with him in the truck – but that was truly ‘at the very least’. Beyond that, there was nothing – no silver lining here. In the end, you have burned more than gasoline on this outing, that is for sure. Returning to the lake without the Short Bus (or the Trash Truck as its replacement) means that you are going to have a harder time borrowing equipment and vehicles from other group members – and in that vein, with nearly half of everyone in your party returning injured, you are probably going to have a harder time convincing other group members to follow you into dangerous or potentially dangerous situations.
It seems that you just keep getting shit on, no matter what. In the past six days, you have lost a sliver of your left kidney to a gunshot and a third of your left testicle (among other things) to torture. You found a farm-modified, functional M728 – easily the greatest single find of your career as a junk collector, but then you permanently damaged it the first time you drove it, destroying your driveway’s bridge in the process … and then to add insult to injury, the group eminently domained it away from you. You even managed to lose your Grandfather’s rifle and your pet Beretta … though that was more on the Paramedic Oher than on yourself. Still hurts though – and you are still down a rifle and pistol when you can least afford it.";
