This seems kinda, I dunno, bland? Like the standard sort of quest-giving source for a modern/cyberpunk setting. The dark web is full of such things, or so I'm given to understand.
The intro sentences are strong: "The hacker had breached the final firewall and was typing code into the command prompt: code/7777SOHAT. Images flashed up on screen and he gazed in terror at what he saw." Kind of led me to believe this would be a cyberhorror kind of sub, something you'd see a good creepy pasta about. Maybe taking it in that direction would be cool? A sort of haunted website that someone stumbles upon, discovers what they think is a dangerous but profitable job, but it turns out to be far darker than they anticipated? I dunno, I'm kind of just riffing here, but you get the idea.
In short, it's a pretty standard concept that has the potential for a unique twist. Go to Comment
When I first created this sub, it was part of a quest, but it was still "In Work." I guess I got the XP then, but since I just now promoted it to a full-fledged sub, it doesn't classify it as a quest sub, but it didn't change the XP.
At least, that's the only explanation I can come up with. Go to Comment
"The world has an immovable dark red sun in the centre of the sky that produces very little light. The heat is totally unbearable and the aroma of delicious cooking meat is in the air. To look around it appears as though you are surrounded by giant black mountains with no vegetation anywhere. The ground is soft and an oily liquid flows into your footprints. Travelling reveals nothing else."
Any character without some resistance to fire or heat is slowly being cooked. The ground if you haven't guessed it is the cooked meat.
I've wanted this world to be part of a dimensional hopping "chase". I thought maybe to populate this world with giant carnivorous beetles or perhaps this could be a "Nirvana" for deceased or living (but dimension travelling) fire dragons.
Perhaps I've just been grilling a little too much meat or perhaps there are some great ideas out there on how to spruce up the place. Any suggestions?
