Quest: The Next One
« on: June 06, 2006, 12:57:40 AM »
Hokay.  So, the Shards of the Storm Quest is over and done with.  Time to move onto the next one.  We have some choices, and we decided to put them before you.  Kindly vote on what you would like to see as the next quest.  The voting will run... let's call it two weeks.

We have several options.

Sky: This post has something to do with sky. It could be an arial dungeon (hard clouds... hey that is an idea), items that fly/ float, manipulate wind, or related to flying, flying lifeforms, floating locations, NPCs that are pilots or fliers, plots centered around the above, flying societies, and if you can think of a system... that is good too.

Lands and Continents:  I would like to propose people put out generic countries or continents. These are generic countries (or continents) that are somewhat general in their write up, so they can be dropped anywhere. I am sure some of these will be mirror countries or odd fantasy affairs, but it might be interesting to see what comes out. Note: If there is a country (or other post) that is so intrical to the other country's post, it must be submitted as a linked post (or the original post is invalid).  It must also be a new setting, so no Arth or Hewdamia.

Articles: Everyone has a useful opinion on something.

Deviant Religions.  These are not the stereotypical, demon-worshipping cults of DOOM.  These are the groups (accepted or not) that make people go "What the hell is wrong with these people?"  Best example I can think of is "The Cloister of the Empty Table."

Saints: Every one puts forth one saint. There could be some parameters in place like keeping the "fantastic elements" to a minimum, and concentrating on somewhat realistic martyrs and prophets, or establishing a certain religion which everyone needs to adhere to.

City Guard: New and interesting protectors of the public (in theory) and keepers of the peace.

Dungeon:  A new dungeon.  Anything in this category would count.

City Adventures: City plots, items, and NPCs with a city related focus.

I'm not sure if I should be honored or bummed. :D

I say City Gaurd... or simply... Cities.

Voted. Anything other than continents (too colossal an undertaking) and articles (yawn) works for me!

Triumph of the Dungeon Master!

Ah, how I have come to love that sense of accomplishment and victory that I get when I pull the wool over the eyes of a clever player character. What DM Triumphs have you had?

Some of mine:
1. Finally killing an incredibly powerful, lucky, annoying player's character.
2. Finally achieving a TPK (Total Party Kill)
3. Finally achieving a TPK using only traps
4. Finally working out how to make it so that d**n wizard doesn't steal the spotlight all the d**n time.

That is funny Murometz, I was going to say... Let's do continents and articles, things we need more of.

Dont misunderstand me Moon. You know I love anything geographical! I just think a continent is a bit too unwieldly for a Quest. Can you imagine how LONG these submissions would be? (I know mine would!).

It is.
Do you realize how few people there are that actually bother to read or comment on a setting?

What AG said. A majority of the members here spend more time on the shorter subs, regardless of whether they are a lifeform/ npc/ location, etc... not to mention the few who read articles.

As much as the site may need more of those subs I feel it would only be a handful (three max four) people who submit any type of article or full blown continent sub.

it is unfortunate but true, there are two general groups of Strolenites, and I can say this since there is one of each in my house. The smaller but more prolific of the two is the hard-core strolenite, those of us who will write an encyclopedic post detailing not only a basic idea, but the nuances of a made up culture's eating customs and such, and then argue with each other over the details. This is the group that would likely read an entire long post and comment on it.

The larger, and much less prolific group seldom reads posts that are more than three paragraphs long, and if they read a longer post it is in a limited number of catagories, such as so and so only really reads NPCs, or just items or what have you. Many subs, my own included are glossed over by Appy for a simple reason...too many words. I do not tihnk this is a singular responce on the part of a Strolenite.

I am going to start working on a few ideas since it seems that one is already in the lead and been that way. When will voting stop?

Okay, the votes are in, and the next Quest is up.  The Citadel has spoken.  Go create Dungeony bits.
