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).
Current board settings:

This quest, as the title suggests, takes place in the world of Dragon Ball. You're playing as a twenty-two year old man named Tofoo, and will adventure through the story of the Dragonball series alongside characters such as Goku, Yamcha, Bulma, Tien, and many others. Through your actions, you can make significant changes to the story, and perhaps even become the strongest fighter on Earth.


At the end of each update you'll have ten minutes to vote on options. Write-ins are allowed, but I do reserve the right to veto them.

You exit the momentum train and bask in the morning sunlight, finally in Neo-Domino City. You arrive to the metropolis a fresh graduate of your local Duel Academia, now a certified duelist hungering for fame and glory. Still, even after the exams you're barely a rookie in the dueling world.

In memory of the great Duel City tournament, Neo-Domino is once again slowly turning into the capital for dueling for the next couple months, thanks to a series of tournaments organized by Kaibacorp itself, culminating in world-class events such as World Duel Grand Prix and the Duel City anniversary tournament, where people from all around the world strive for the title of King of Games.

That insanity is however still months away. Right now, Kaiba Corp instead runs open, large-scale tournaments for begginers, casuals and people who've never had the chance to try dueling seriously. An idea of one of the Kaiba brothers himself, the point of these tournaments is to give such people an opportunity to test their worth and show what really they're capable of, disregarding their origins and backgrounds, with the top scorers getting temporary Kaibacorp sponsorship and entry into the qualifiers for the later, bigger tournaments.

Yourself, you come from a small town in the middle of nowhere and have finished a provincial Dueling School, which would usually put you at a disadvantage towards any of the big city duelists. As such, this tournaments is exactly for people like you, as along with the entry fee you get one of various starter decks; moreover as the tournament progresses you will be able to obtain additional cards to supplement your collection - a vast improvement over the pile of normal monsters you managed to get together at home. Since long before graduation you've been planning and saving money for entry, but finally, you've arrived.

After waiting in the quene for half an hour - arriving early pays off - it's finally your turn, and you can finally enter the begginers tournament.

But first, you have to register.

What is your name, duelist?

You are Captain Kusajishi Riku, and after a very long day you've finished with the Lieutenants under your tutelage. They've since been fed in your Division's mess hall and put up for the night in temporary quarters: your sister-in-law Miyako with your daughter, and Abarai, Kira, and Hinamori together in a small triple room with the hope that they'll be chatty with each other before they pass out from exhaustion.

Then of course you had to tuck Halibel and Apacci in, since they're still in their resurrección forms and wouldn't be able to fall asleep otherwise due to their heightened senses and unusually active reiatsu. To your credit you even tried to do the thing properly and read Apacci a bedtime story, which for some reason she protested at despite Tia's silent amusement.

Now night has fully fallen, leaving you to retreat into your own quarters. The windows are cracked open to invite the cool night air in and let the warm, stale air from inside out: this may be one of the last nights you'll be able to do that until spring comes... assuming you're still around to see it. The notes you wrote about Hadō #99 are spread out on the tatami in front of you, several pages of handwritten gibberish that feels at the same time both alien and tantalizingly familiar.

Yoruichi reclines on the couch nearby reading a book of her own, no title visible on its well-worn cover. It looks like it could be a thousand years old, and knowing her Clan it may well be.

With a frustrated sigh you collapse onto your back with a dull thump. “This is going nowhere.”

“That bad?” your wife muses, closing her reading and setting it on the cushion next to her. “Maybe you should take a break... I'll admit, fascinating as this may be I'm not getting much usable information from it either. I could do with a break myself.”

“So what'd you do with Omaeda after training?” you ask, forcing yourself upright and crossing your legs.

Yoruichi scoffs. “When he was done stuffing his face he passed out in your mess hall, so I figured I'd just leave him there 'till breakfast.”

I would like to see that.
So the sword is enhancing the power Tatsuki already had?
It's more like an arrancar's zanpakuto than anything else, only the abilities she had sealed into it can be so esoteric that it's still left a significant learning curve for how she uses them once released... like how does one even begin to shift around their "tangibility"? What does that even mean? At least reiatsu is something you can feel, something you can define, but how can you define the absence of physical presence especially if you're a teenager?
has there ever been a point where Riku or Tenkotsuki had to explain a concept to a person using sock puppets?
Yeah, I do remember Riku saying it would be more like an arrancar's zanpakuto, though it seems I forgot her saying at the end of thread 75:
>I could help Tatsuki along by sealing her powers into a zanpakuto

You are the Commanders of an evil Overlord, sent into the world to conquer for him. You'll be each commanding regiments of his army.

Last time, you found an old tome, and after ransacking the town of Iverding, you freed a suspicious looking robed figure that promised you to lead you to where the maps within it lead, an ancient cathedral which promises dark secrets. You have followed it all the way to the human county of Grimershall and the mysterious Grimershall crater.

This is a skirmish style game. You can make a character with the chargen stuff I'll post after this, and you can expect two to four turns to happen a day.

Don't wanna read it all? Just read movement actions and morale and describe your actions narratively. Should be enough.

as more and more of the dark army arrives - a torrent of cannon fodder sweeping the land like locusts, the Death Wizard cautioulsy moves forward, revealing the walls of Grimershall, and the archers atop it.
The Anston forms a barrier between you and the city.

[Wiz 1] l Fernium The Death Wizard
[Bar2] l Azith the Mauler
[Cha3] l Mazak the Accursed
[Bar4] l 'Councillor Meatonstick' - Definitely the oldest elder at this point

Azith will lead all his forces directly east.
Ah yes, this undertaking needs the cunningness of the goblins.
I shall send my Deadhounds to scout out the forest to the northeast of us.
Form up my minions! We march north bring the faithful to the slaughter!

Move north towards the river.
Interesting... for now the main skeleton force holds its position while the cavalry move a bit closer to get a better view of their forces then they will retreat back.
I believe I could do something that'll help nullify their defense, however it would require you ordering your shaman to give me his current magic reserve. That large beasts skeleton if raised would make a remarkable battering ram. That is, if you agree with my idea.

How about we do something like this?

"Kazuya, do you know who Enfer was?
Real name was Ren, a volunteer at the same orphanage that Mio worked at. They were good friends. Can you imagine how surprised I was that the mad bomber takes proper care of a bunch of children?
Calcite Arrow. No idea who he is in real life, but do you know why he hated me? I killed his best friend.
And do you know why? Because his best friend was a murderous psychopath who gloated about killing the girl that I loved. What would you have done to that guy? Would you have let him off scot-free?
Iron Ogre. A guy whom you never met. I encountered him during the raid on the Smilers. Initially he hated my guts, but then started to respect me. We went well together.
Then he became a Hyades champion and I needed to kill him in the tournament. I knew that I have a weapon that can severe a Hyades bond once, but I also knew that both Kouchi and Iron Ogre would be the kind to fight for their Hyades or demand a rematch, even if the bond was severed.
Haze [What was the first word of his name?], real name [shit, I forgot], I personally trained him after Palladium Rook had his body taken over by Alura and been forced to betray us during the raid, followed by him becoming a cripple that could only be saved with a lachryma infusion courtesy of Akira.
These two guys were best fucking friends. They helped me, even though they didn't need to.
Asuna, player name Pythia. Doesn't even know that she's a player, but dreams of the Red and can see the future. Before this entire fuckup happened, I told her to leave the school grounds. I thought only players were at risk, so she was the only one that I managed to save.

None of these people deserved to die. None of them was ready for what happened.
And yet you only care about Mio's fate. Why? You didn't care when I told you that Rust Kaiser's death was a result of me forcing him to kill the only person that he was able to care about. You barely cared when I told you about the Hyades tournament, the players who died from it and the Hyades who were just scared girls who were hoping to escape from their Red World prison and see the real world again.
Why is Mio the most important?

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
You see, Kazuya, I didn't KNOW that everyone would die anyway. Because I always run on incomplete information. I try my best, but I'm not like Pazuzu or Naoya. I don't have an enigmatic source of knowledge and I don't have the charisma to ask the right questions without accidentally intimidating someone.

I was trying to be like you, Kazuya. The good guy who tries his best to save everyone. But that doesn't work for me. I'm the Red Joker, bringer of death. I spent 100 years here in hell and learned to be really good at fighting. But don't expect me to be good at investigation and all that social stuff.
You want to prevent another of these incidents? Then live up to your role as the hero. As the guy worthy of the Midas armor. You have always been the socially perceptive one of us two. You can figure things out, I can achieve these things.
I work best when someone can actually tell me what the fuck is going on. You make the choices, I win the fights."

That's roughly my idea. Humanize all of the other people that Kazuya didn't care about. Show him that we will follow his advise going forward, because we KNOW that we are really bad at not being evil.
>we see a knight in shining armor who can't do bad.
>Implying that fact should show him that we put him on as much of a pedestal as he is putting us.
It's not quite like that, more that unlike everyone else he's uncorrupted by the Red World and is still ruled by his humanity, and it's a pretty sage bet that makes him the hero everyone needs (rather than the one they got, us). Also, given the armour he's not just a noble heroic person, he's quantifiably a noble heroic person. He just doesn't see it in himself yet because this is all still new to him.

You are Ian Miller and today is an important day. Today is the day you make your first repair as owner of Ian's Repair Shop. Unfortunately this very important day has yet to start for one simple reason. Your coffee machine is broken. You argue over whether it's worth being late over coffee, but your pride wins out in the end. After all what sort of repairman could let such a slight go unpunished. With that in mind you whip out your PET and jack in to begin a simple diagnostic. Immediately it is clear something is wrong. Mr Progs are seen running about in a panic and the sounds of pickaxes hitting digital dirt can be heard, the telltale sign of a Mettuar. Speaking of Mettuars you find your partner starring at you, silent like always.

Meet MetMan

>MetMan is a strange navi. He has the build of a stock navi, but wears a bright yellow hard hat and has a black void with eyes for a face. The rest of his body follows suit with bright yellow armoring over a black spandex body. He doesn't speak and rarely acknowledges being spoken too outside of completing his task, but he does seem to move with more vigor whenever he is asked to break something. His origins are a mystery. On his 21st birthday Ian got blackout drunk and the next day he woke up with MetMan in his PET. Some of his friends think MetMan was purchased in a back alley operation, others think he is a strange virus that killed and replace Ian's original navi. Ian himself thinks he just dared his navi to put on a Mettuar mid fight and his navi really got in to the roll.

Whatever his origin may be MetMan still follows your orders as you tell him to search the perimeter. Soon he stumbles across a gaping pit covered in Mettuars. Thinking quickly you

he hasn't let us down yet. Plus people always underestimate him
I think you're a pretty good qm, plus I love Megaman battle network. But what would happen to the quest if metman got deleted? Would it stop or would we hopefully get a navi that has more personality than a rock?

Taking place in the world of Dragonball, This quest will differ in that it is set many years after the Buu saga and the Z-Fighters are nothing more than legends now. You, the Readers/Players, will control the destinies of Nodal, Mallow, and Roni and their adventures of exploration and growing stronger as fighters.

I will update the story. At the end of the update I will either give story progression options or you will battle against opponents with dice rolling based attacks. After an undetermined amount of time I will tally up the decisions and continue the story based on your choices. Battles/Dice Rolling events will be the best roll out of the first FIVE rolls (First roll, first served). Lets have some fun with this.

Welcome back Caff.

Roni didn't have time to run before the energy blast was hurling towards him. He closed his eyes and clenched his teeth in fear. As he waited for unimaginable pain, he realized that it wasn't coming. He opened his eyes to see Mother Senzu standing in front of him with her arms crossed, deflecting the blast.

"H-How?" Roni wondered out loud.

"Ki manipulation. Stick around and I can show you." Mother Senzu leaned forward and ripped her arms outward causing the energy blast to dissipate.

"ENOUGH!" Captain Tall Tide had grown disgruntled from the blasts outcome. "No more of this. lets end this, Fox."

Mother Senzu nodded and dropped into a fighting stance that Roni had not yet seen. Captain Tall Tide began to run, getting faster by the second, towards Mother Senzu. The fox took a deep breath, ignoring the impending danger. Before the pirate captain could reach her she stood up and clenched her hands into fists.


From the middle of her forearms down to her fists rippled with a golden, fiery energy. Mother Senzu ducked as the Captain swung his hook towards her face. She stood up, bringing her fiery fist across Tall Tide's face sending him backwards from the hit.

>1. Gather Nodal and Mallow
Don't argue with the flaming fox lady
Roni shook his head yes and ran to join up with Nodal and Mallow. Mother Senzu turned her attention back to Tall Tide. "You arm cannon cant even compare to my Blazing Fox Fists. If you leave now you will not be harmed further. Your men can not say the same."

"OVER CONFIDENT ANIMAL!" The Captain jumped to his feet and released a barrage of energy shots in rapid succession at Mother Senzu. She readied herself and began punching the blasts out of the air with her technique. As she punched the Captain's blasts, she began to move towards him.

Roni, Nodal, and Mallow each stopped at the Senzu Stalk and watched as each blast Tall Tide fired was punched out of existence.

The Captain backed up as Mother Senzu got closer until she was close enough to grab him. "AAAAHHHHH!"

Captain Tall Tide brought his hook down in a thunderous swipe cutting the unsuspecting Mother Senzu down the middle of her body.


Mother Senzu flew back in a heap as the pirate fired another blast straight to her wounded chest. "Who needs to leave now?" The Captain laughed.

I mean, foregone conclusions aside, Arisu! What are you doing?!
Good show GS, I continue to be intrigued by why Shimada likes Elodie.

Also, the one time Elodie doesn't try to sandbag the idea that she may in fact make the all-star game with her is adorable.

Tomorrow should probably be a vacation day to get more training in, by the way. Because us having the meeting at 6 means studying Senshado is going to be tricky.

The soft glow of your pulsating medical tanks glimmer against the polished stone of the murals covering the walls as your drones march forth with piles of equipment balanced atop their carapaces with care. Nutrient vats slowly grow as drones pile various forms of collected biomass into the digestion tanks for processing, the piping slowly growing the short distance to the medical tank as a number of Phantom priestesses look on from just outside, their minds a mixture of fear, jubilation, and confusion at the strange but overwhelming display of hive biotechnology, unaware and incapable of understanding the magnificent complexity of the medical procedures being performed upon the childless queen that has looked over their tribe for as long as their legends can say.

You realize, like the Ralighans, and despite the Barren Queen's efforts to stamp out such superstition, you are a god to these primitive creatures, and the tribe's spiritual and practical leaders have all gathered to watch you weave magic before them. They watch your drones with reverence, avoiding their paths while following closely behind any time they leave the Barren Queen's chamber as your drones ignore them as inconsequential to their orders. Several workers, while standing idle awaiting a new order, have even had a number of small talismans pinned to their bodies, hanging from antennae or stuck to the thorax with a waxy cream harvested from the secretions of a small beetle analog.

You do not recognize the details of their activities as having any form of practical application, but as the Barren Queen slips into your medical pod, the mountains echo with the sounds of their alien music and invocations of the spirits of ancestors and other mythological entities.

Welcome back to Hive Queen Quest!

I added Containment Fields to the talk page price list.
Good job.
Also, any ships that should be updated with Containment Fields? I can think of those that are designed to fight Scavengers, and the capital ships we want to have survive for as long as possible.
>Regarding Unity/Theseus, I was thinking we could use "negotiate peace with Unity" as a bargaining chip in a counter-offer.

As Theseus has explicitly said, humans making the frankly enormous leap of trust in trusting that no Unity will NOT attack and they should totally let their guard down, will COST political capital, not gain it.

It would be something we're asking of them, not something they're asking of us. It's of negative bargaining value.

In the year 1986, crime in America is at an all-time high. Criminals, drugs, and guns flow into the country from everywhere in the world, and the gateway to it all is the coastal paradise, Heat City. On the neon-soaked streets of this beating heart of scum and villany, you can get whatever you want -- if you can pay the price.

You are Johnny the thug, and ever since you agreed to take one small job for the Bratva, your life has gone sideways. One thing led to another as you made enemies of one half of the city's underworld, and then the other half. With the help of some new friends -- Alex the enforcer, Nick the thief, and the Yamada family -- you went all-in and led a daring heist on the Triad's skyscraper fortress, Dragon's Nest. It went great until you were shot and fell off the roof, twenty-five stories down.

With luck or fate on your side, and the help of your friends, you survived to tell the tale. But you haven't forgotten that someone out there has been playing games with you, pitting the city's criminal syndicates against each other with you caught in the middle. You're going to find out who it is, and make them pay.

>Who's really in charge?
>Where are they vulnerable?


"Okay, so let's say I wanted to knock this whole house of cards down. Where would I go? What would I target? Where can I find something vulnerable to me?"

Akane looks at you for a few moments, her expression guarded. You wonder if she's thinking up a lie, or just figuring out what answer would be appropriate. When she speaks, she says, "You have already struck at the Triads' most vulnerable position, the Dragon's Nest. Now the Tong is held together mostly by the reputation of the Dragon and the Elements, though the incident cost them severely in face as well as the more obvious material losses. These leaders will have to be on the move, acting personally in the field. If something should happen to them ..."

"You think the Tong might not survive," you say.

She shrugs. "That's what Kojiro thinks. He mentioned a plan to eliminate them, if it came to that."

You toy idly with the double-orange sock. "What about the dock gangs?"

"Disorganized rabble, he called them. Without the backing of either the Triads or Yakuza, he said they would fall back into chaos and disunity, and soon the police would have them."

>I believe you about some things, but not others. (Say what).
>But he has nothing to do with the Z trade. And the bosses back in Japan only care about their money.
That's not true because we already know the Yakuza has several politicians under their payroll to keep the op hushed up. Furthermore, I find it hard to believe that this is only about the money because they risk too much on a fragile alliance and a drug that they might not know will have a large following. This is definitely about something else and the lab proves it.
She's trying to make the excuse that he was sent here to clean things up in the local Yakuza, and has now found himself in charge, so the politician deals aren't on him. Not much of an excuse. So this and the lab.

I'll wrap this up for the night here, hopefully back tomorrow to tie things up.
>(Try to sense the truth. Will require a dice roll.)

You are Captain Carya Marseille-O'Hara, and your crew has just made first contact with the man claiming to be the missing newtype ace Char Aznable. You can't confirm whether or not it's him, the density of people on his side of Sweetwater colony seems to be making that impossible... but the voice on the other end of the phone line does sound eerily familiar.

“You're bad at this,” Rossweisse observes, having clearly heard enough from whoever this man really is. “You who cannot comprehend loyalty to anything save your own selfish goals cannot expect any loyalty after your death. Any success you see will die with you.”

“You are but a child wandering out of a loving home for the first time into a cruel world,” the voice insists, taking on a sinister, threatening edge. “You have much to learn about human ambition, and human prejudices. Anger runs deep, and forges stronger bonds than 'loyalty' ever does among those who share it.”

“You will learn that lesson... today.”

Then, in a moment that almost feels ripped from a crime drama, the line goes dead.

The room itself is similarly silent for a few seconds afterwards, and you soon hang up the phone. Everyone's thoughts have turned to the same subject, which was no doubt the impostor's aim: what move is he planning to make today that could possibly live up to his grandiose statements about anger and prejudice?

“So what if he is this Char character?” Lieutenant Carlyle supposes, putting words to your shared concerns before taking it in the complete opposite direction. “What could one man possibly do?”

“This one man claims to be the son of Zeon Zum Deikun,” you explain sternly. “Who would go on to ruin the Zabi family in revenge for his own family's suffering, becoming an ace mobile suit pilot in the process. Very nearly the Duchy's ace of aces in fact, and his growing newtype powers have made him even more dangerous since then. Of all the enemies I could face in single combat, I'd have trouble thinking of worse.”

“ALICE, broadcast a message on all emergency frequencies warning of an EMP event,” you order as the Sericea moves in towards the fabrication block. Meanwhile the security team continues working frantically to disarm the bomb.

“We've got sixty seconds!”
“I can fucking read sir!”
“Don't you sass me, son!”
“If we die you can kiss my ass in hell, sir!”
“And if we live you're in for it!”
“That's fine, I'll still be alive!”
“That's the red wire!”
“I know that, but you never cut the red one.”
“Don't just cut wires randomly based on what you THINK the right one is!”

Then you hear a triumphant shout. “Got it! Get fucked... sir!”

And that is where we leave off for this week. Char's EMP bombs have cut Carrina and Rossweisse off from their limited support from the open side and blinded Sericea, giving them a real shot at clearing the way for a full takeover of Sweetwater.

Thanks for turning out, and I look forward to seeing you next week!
Thanks for running! See ya on the next one.

And dayum, of course it'd be multiple EMP devices discharging. Well, at least it wasn't a tac nuke like I expected. That would've been way messier, not to mention a MS reactor detonating from a beam weapon already has that kind of yield. Good on Jenkins for being the mook that did the job and lived.

Kinda disturbing that either there's closed side sympathizers on the open side to act on this, or it's already been set way before hand.

And btw, is Quess still onboard the Sericea?
Indeed, Quess is present but not active as she has no formal training. Unlike Char, Carya and Rossweisse would consider putting her in combat both dangerous and deeply irresponsible.

As for sympathizers, there's a very good reason for that which you'll learn next time.
