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 = "You are Alberich: maiden-rescuing knight, killer of men and monsters, familiar twice over, possible relation of Gods, and modern hero. You've seen your home destroyed, your friends and allies scattered to the winds, and yourself crippled, but you persevered through it all in the company of those who remain loyal. Tonight your are restored to power.
On the night of November 13, 2019, you found yourself in a dimly lit stone basement, standing in the middle of a magic circle. You had been summoned as a Servant, a figure out of legend contracted after their death to fight alongside a magus for the Holy Grail. In your case, however, you were and conned by Judas Iscariot into taking his place despite not being any such thing.
Since then, you've made your way through a chain of events even stranger than those you faced in the Akeldama. You've lost one Master and gained another on the point of death. You've slain three enemy Servants and converted four to your cause. You've met, allied with, and betrayed the survivors of the last War: a family of magi dedicated to destroying the Holy Grail. You've discovered your true nature, as an artificial hero cobbled together from the souls of over 300 sacrifices and imbued with false memories. You've met the two others like you, formerly 'human' compatriots in the Akeldama's War who have since been transformed into Servants. You've fallen in love with Liliesviel von Einzbern, a homunculus at the center of the Holy Grail War whose desperate need and ephemeral beauty captured your heart. You've begun to walk the path of magical knowledge, and through the use of your Noble Phantasm summoned forth two impossible existences from the Reverse Side of the World: a phantasmal beast and a goddess. This morning, you cracked open the soul of a captured enemy, hoping to take power over her by magic. Instead, you've found yourself wandering in the labyrinthine inner world of her spirit. After you escaped, however, things only worsened thanks to an undetected attack on your home carried out (mostly) while you were unconscious.
Since awakening after that disaster, you've discovered the unexpected loyalty of your most recently acquired Servant, made contact with two of your scattered allies, met an old friend once more, and finally have been healed through a large-scale ritual utilizing the sacrifice on hundreds; perhaps thousands, you're uncertain of the details.
None of your experiences have changed your goal. Whatever the purpose or origin of your life, and regardless of who stands in your way, there is only one path before you. You will take the Holy Grail with your own hands.
Four Servants remain to fall by your sword.

String comment = "You are a promising twenty-year-old wrestler who's about to make his / her debut in a promotion called the North American Wrestling Alliance. You start from the bottom, and your job is to manage your career in the best possible way.
The rules of this quest go as follow :
- One playable character that everyone can control through votes
- His / her stats will change slightly after every fight, it depends on your choices
- I'll always consider the average value of the rolls
- No particular update schedule ; I'll post at least once per day
More details will be provided after this intro, depending on your votes.
It's a pretty simple quest that will be written in such a way that it should be quick to read and easy to follow. So if you notice something that could be improved, let me know.
Before building our main character, you have to choose a narrative paradigm :
> It's all real : fights are real, feuds are real, gimmicks are real personality traits and nothing is scripted beforehand.
> It's all fake : just like the real thing. Everything is scripted and the wrestlers are actors with good athletic abilities. In that case, the quest is centered around your evolution as a human being and your relationship with the other workers at the NAWA.";

String comment = "Welcome, anons.
This is the introduction thread for the collaborative storytelling about The Curse of The Puppet.
You, and other anons will choose our main character actions and proceed with the story.
>What about the setting?
I'm using the world of Majesty Fantasy Kingdom Simulator as base. The aim is to begin with a generic fantasy setting and world-build together. (Tho I've already some stuff ready for use
>But what is the premise?
It's simple, (you), as other anons, are part of a collective entity called The Puppeteer. You're new to this dimension, so no one know's about it. The curse makes the target lose all its personality, turning into a puppet for The Puppeteer to control. And, when the cursed dies, it jumps to another host.
>And why is this gimmick cool?
First, the curse affects any sentient being. From a normal human to a mountain goblin, that means infinite possibilities for storytelling. And with every death, a new story will begin.
Second, the world will be the same. That means the same world-building. That village you razed as a Minotaur may have its realm security against monsters tighten up, so if you end up as an human there, you might be conscripted to hunt Minotaur in the future. That's just an example.
Third, feel free to interpret the story and choose your actions as you wish. The objective is to have fun. I might force you to do stuff or just kill you to change characters to keep the wheel spinning.
>Ok, but how do we play?
Simple, I will post an Story Point Post and call for an Action Order. You will reply to the Story Point Post and follow the following example to progress the story.
"Name: Action Order
Rolled 8, 12, 17 = 37 (3d20)
>>Story Point Post Number
"You seem quite scared about my behavior, and you might be right, i'm not the one you used to know anymore"
>Slash sword towards his neck
That's a cool story, OP"
Now let me explain this example.
Here you can put "Action Order" if you wish participate in the story
Always roll 3d20 if you want to play
Reply to Story Points Posts to make it quicker for me to find who's playing
Use "quotes" to indicate speech, and to talk with NPC
Use >memearrows to indicate actions, remember to use a verb
Text without the above-mentioned rules are considered to be off-topic discussion.
>How can everyone play this?
One, of the first three posts replying to story point posts, gets to be chosen.
>How are you choosing who wins?
Remember the always use 3d20 to play? Well, the highest value from the equation ([first die result] + [second die result] + [third die result]) / 3 is the winner. That gives fairness between anyone willing to play.
This is an experimental project, lets see if it works.";

Since that day, your new composite being has been working to change the grim future laid out for you.
To that end, you have focused on improving yourself as well as your relationship with your adoptive sister, Sakura, all while hiding the truth from your father, Byakuya, and your ancestor, Zouken. Should either of them find out the truth about you, then dying would be the least of your worries.
Just recently, you have met Shirou Emiya, the main character of the original Visual Novel that led to the Nasuverse exploding in popularity. You managed to end up getting into a fight with some bullies after he stubbornly refused to back down against a situation that would only have ended up in him getting hurt. It's clear that you have a long journey ahead of you.

String comment = "The year is 2000, otherwise abbreviated as the Y2K. On this day, January 1st marks the first day of the new millennium. The 21st century. Taking place within this time period, in Karakura Town, located in Western Tokyo. An average small city comprised of at least one hundred thousand citizens that take residence. A rather quaint place that saw mass development since the Taisho period. This city seems perfectly ordinary as any other city, but it has one unusual statistics. Lied with these grounds is a Jūreichi, a unique phenomenon in the Material World. In simple terms its a spiritually charged area to which Souls find themselves drawn to.
The locations of the Jūreichi come and go much like the changing of the eras. In spite of these alternations, one thing remains consistent even now. Those that are enriched with the spiritual forces serve as a lightning rod for calamity. In order to protect these spiritual enriched lands, a task force residing in another world has taken jurisdiction in the dealings of such matters. Oblivious to the common men, this military organization does battle with the countless forces that threaten the balance of not just one city, but the entire realms themselves. We call these diligent protectors, the shinigami.

You are Lombra the wizard, you kill bitches for fun.
You know three spells.
Kill Bitches For Fun - Kill at least two bitches. Can only be used for fun. I'm being serious, if you have any real reason to use it, it won't work. Costs like 5 mana or something.
Liek Suck Dick Or Something - You suck someone's dick and they enjoy it. You gain mana if they cum in your mouth, but only if you swallow. No homo.
Where Is My Motherfucking Money - The person you cast this spell on pays you. No questions asked. They might get mad at you later if they didn't actually owned you any money though. Costs like 3 mana or something.
You have like 10 mana.
You have like 10 hit points.
You can visit like one place in the morning, one place in the afternoon and one in the night. Though you need to sleep once a day in one of the three times of the day, probably coming back to your mom's house to sleep. If you don't sleep you gonna like lose hitpoints, yeah.
You just slept all morning. It is day one.

>A Sethite Barge. The vessel is not an agile one, nor comfortable, but that does not concern a death-priest of Dread Seth, lord of bones, such as yourself.

You were operating in decivilized space, looking for anything to bite your teeth into, when your fleet’s tanker, the Mammon, inexplicably lost pressure in one of its primary tanks, ultimately resulting in a total loss of one-third of the fuel reserves for your fleet. With the range that can safely be explored by your expedition dramatically reduced, you ultimately decide to begin heading back to port, much to the dismay of the crew. While there is a base pay for crewmen, they are also guaranteed a taste of whatever the fleet can bring back, and many were expecting more than whatever the hell your fleet’s trawler, the Clean Sweep has managed to “net” so far.
To be entirely honest, you were also expecting more from this particular outing. Unable to secure financing for this operation, you used the Clean Sweep as collateral for a loan to cover the costs of outfitting and insuring your fleet, without the knowledge of the other Owners. You had enough talents to cover the loan payments, at least for the immediate future, but you do not have enough to cover the cost of another expedition. Which means that you are probably going to have to use the Clean Sweep, or your fleets freighter, the Karaboudjan as collateral for another loan. Trying and only partially succeeding in forcing down rising dread at the thought of impending insolvency and legal proceedings, you decided to take a meandering and sweeping path back to port, hoping to find something to break even.
What you are looking at right now, however, is well beyond breaking even. This Derelict, as it quietly sits in a geosynchronous orbit above a planet, inside a tightly packed debris field is unlike anything you have ever seen. You hesitate to use the word “alien”, simply because you are not willing to deal with the implications, but it certainly does not look like any ship you have ever seen. The planet that is orbiting appears to be habitable too, and there is a great deal of money in planetary land speculation, but that ship has your undivided attention for now.
First things first, how are you going to deal with this windfall?
>You have taken on enough risk with the loan, no need to pile it on here. You have no idea what we are looking at. The fleet should return to port, and find some specialists, so we do not needlessly risk the lives of our crew, or worse, risk damaging something with resale value.
>While dealing with the main body of the ship might be beyond our capabilities now, there should not be any harm in sifting through the debris field, right? Right? ... Right?
>Bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. There is no need to be as reckless as we have been being, but there is no need to assume that we are going to ruin the derelict, by doing some harmless pruning.";

Nice, haven’t tried that out since you were chilling in Legion all day.
