I recently made a /qst/ a few days ago, but it's become very obvious that it is "shit". Only one person has interacted in days and that one person has not done anything in 24 hours.What I would like to know, where exactly do you think I went wrong? Was it being to vague and letting the players pick a playstyle by combining three features, then telling them what faction they get or letting them pick from the factions that fit those three characteristic/features?Was it the map was originally not filled in? Was it the title? Did I wait too long to reply or not wait long enough?Was the problem that I allowed the players to be divided into multiple factions based on their interests? Was it not starting a new thread once people had voted on something enough? Was it not saying "First to three"?Should I have frontloaded more mechanics?
>>5264832Forgot to post the /qst/ in question.>>5261661
Not going to lie I thought it was a multiplayer civ game based on the map so I ignored it.
>>5264834I took a look, and to be frank with you anon it's a bit dense. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but with it being so open-ended as well I imagine you lost a lot of players from decision paralysis. Gotta get some player investment before you loredump so hard, imo.It's not a bad first try though- worth noting also that the board runs slow in these months. I wish you good luck in future endeavors.
>>5264841If if you're going to make a civ quest it's best to advertise so in the title. A better name would have been Cyberpunk Civ quest or something along that lines. Also there's a QTG where stuff like this is probably best to be posted at since meta threads like this can clog the board.
>>5264844I don't know if it counts as a /civ/ though?>>5264841I didn't want it to be mutiplayer, but then each option only got like 2 votes or something. Note to self, no mutiplayer.>>5264842Isn't it like Summer for college people? Do you consider the first two posts to be dense? If so, I really fucked up.
>>5264880I'd say it counts as a Civ quest. Or as close as one can get.
>>5264832Unpopular genre, unusual formatting, high barrier to entry on a quick skim. You're expecting a lot of mental effort from your players right from the get-go with no real emotional hook to prompt it.
>>5264942I, too, noticed the lack of boobies.
>>5264942What is the most mental effort in the first two posts?
>>5264832I thought it was a multiplayer game as well. Then when I read what the choices were and someone picked options I didn't like, I chose not to play.
>>5264962Would it be better if people voted for what we didn't pick or gave options points? I'd like something that seems reasonable to more people.
>>5264832Your formatting is kind of off putting. Have you lurked much? You might get more out of looking at other quests than a meta thread.Also do keep in mind, this is /qst/, not having many players is something most QMs deal with. There is a reason an update a day is considered the gold standard here except for special cases.
>>5265010A few years ago, I lurked for months. People would lose their shit if you didn't update constantly. /civ/s were popular but every person who ran them would run off a few posts in.Stuff would fall off page 10, if it wasn't touched in like two or three days.
Once a day is fine now (the standard update pace actually) and civs are still semi-popular. Your title is just formatted weirdly desu
>>5264834Looks very dense, image and choices seem like a civ game but the title does not, overly detailed char gen kills quests pretty easily.
>>5264880Dense isn't just about quantity of text, but number of variables to consider. I see world history, politics, some kind of game UI thing with balance considerations, and I didn't even read anything yet.
>>5265093>>5265097How would I make it feel more like a turn based game where factions have different playstyles or Command and Conquer or an RTS... but turn based?Obviously while having less variables at first.
>>5265107If I'm getting this right, the feeling you're trying to portray is "You are the King" except the cyberpunk version, right? Maybe start with changing the title and/or using the first few lines to set that tone.
>>5265107Just put Civ in your title and you'll probably get more activity. Also maybe try switching up the map theme since it kind of looks like the maps used for multiplayer civ games here.
>>5265111>You are the KingWhen did I ever say that? Oh God, the OP is a disaster and people think it's about being king or something.
>>5265127Oh wait, it's because it's for the TZAR setting, which is an acronym.
This is the prototype for the new map.
Nobody else has mentioned this, so I will: the map as the OP image is bland and looks exactly like a generic insta-flake civ. Pick something else and add the map in a followup post if you need one.
>>5265134>>5265189Yeah this still isn't very eye catching or appealing, most people on qst associate maps with flakey civ quests. Take >>5223723 for example, it gives a good sense for the setting of the quest, it's easy to digest, and eye catching. Also your first post should be prose and introduce the player the the setting, not a spreadsheet of information.
>>5265089That era is gone man. I run currently and my threads lately last for almost two months
>>5265199>Also your first post should be prose and introduce the player the the setting, not a spreadsheet of information.So it should introduce the setting and use a bunch of fancy, pretty words... but not be organized information? I'm really confused here.>Introduce the settingWe can't do that though, because that would just be like 20 full posts of information, just detailing the major powers and who is at war with who and why. Even the biggest, most powerful factions might have no interactions with the players ever and there is no point in detailing what they are.>Well just give us the basicsOkay, do you want me to tell you what is different?>YesThere are so many things that diverge from the reality you are familiar with and most people actually know nothing about the city they live in, let alone the nations of the world and the various superpowers.>So what is your pointMy point is you only need to know about your surroundings, what you are capable of, and what anyone around you is capable of... Which requires you to pick somewhere in the world to play as, without knowing anything about the world (Because even giving you a small idea of all your options, would take like six posts)>So what?So there was the idea to just let people pick how they wanted to play (Playstyle) or how they didn't want to play...and go from there.>But your map is bullshitOkay. What would you prefer?>Do a map of a very specific locationA location that the players will most likely vote to never ever have a chance of ever going near?>Don't be stupid, just show something that is common!Like a jungle, and then the players vote for Desert? How about a urban area and the players vote to be in the middle of nowhere?
>>5265257I think your scope is way too broad. What's the point offering a gazillion choices when 99.99999% of them will be irrelevant after the first day of the quest? Why don't you narrow it down to a handful of locations you find interesting and present those as the only options?
>>5265257Please do not take this the wrong way.Are you autistic? Pretty much all of that advice is solid, you specifically asked for help, and now you are walking around with your hands like "What can I do?"And how the fuck does prose mean fancy, pretty words? Maybe don't write like the world's driest Wikipedia article. It's not hard, man.
>>5265263I'm not offering a gazillion choices, I'm offering six and you pick three. >of them will be irrelevant after the first day of the quest?This is why you pick thee and I offer only six. >Why don't you narrow it down to a handful of locations you find interesting and present those as the only options?Because all but one of those locations would never be mentioned again, so why mention them the first time? People in this thread literally said they lose interest if what is offered is not what they want to do.
>>5265264If you mean natural speech, half the page is literally written in informal language. >Pretty much all of that advice is solidBecause your advice tells me to not follow your advice or the other peoples advice. For example, everyone is telling me that I had too much writing in my OP and you linked to this really long really confusing OP. You have to read like three posts to have any idea what is going on and the guy keeps going, after he lists the options for you to pick from. That has to be one of the longest openings I've ever seen.
>>5265269>Which requires you to pick somewhere in the world to play as, without knowing anything about the world (Because even giving you a small idea of all your options, would take like six posts)>A location that the players will most likely vote to never ever have a chance of ever going near?>Like a jungle, and then the players vote for Desert? How about a urban area and the players vote to be in the middle of nowhere?All of these things indicate too many options and a lack of focus. Quests that give too much leeway in their early stages almost universally crash and burn, because 1) the QM loses interest when players pick something they don't like, 2) players lose interest when other players pick something they don't like, and 3) it's boring to drag out chargen. Especially when all you're doing is dry infodumps.What you need to do is boil everything down into>Play as guerillas in Africa>Play as fanatical missionaries in Asia>Play as trained soldiers in EuropeOne choice. And then get started with the quest. And even this might be too unfocused-- you need to do some self-reflection about which options *you* prefer. Do you really want to write about Asia in your setting? Set it in Asia. Don't let players choose. They won't get upset if you never give the option, because they won't know it exists.>>5265271Holy hell dude. This is a fairly normal quest OP written in prose, like a solid majority of quests.>had too much writing in my OPYou had too much dry expository writing. You need to hook people in before you dump you Wikipedia article on them.
>>5265271You keep saying "you" like about four of us are the same person. This board has IDs for a reason. Are you new? Like to the site? I'm not saying you need a wall of text but an establishing paragraph or two would make everything way more approachable. Pull up a word processor, write up a concise summary of your setting. Maybe add a summary of how gameplay is expected to be after that as it is a civ. I really cannot over empathize how weird the formatting schema you chose was. Inherently alienating and we get a lot of civ quests here most of which die quickly. Think, what draws eyes to yours? Setting? Mechanics? Cool OP image?
All offense meant but civs are well known for being some of the most flaked on quests in general, so most people don't even bother engaging with them. Me included.
>>5265275You are straight up not making any sense. You are literally sitting down and telling me that if the wrong option is picked, people will leave... but if any good options don't exist... They will just sit and play a trash /qst/ with nothing they like?Are you implying that either the posters are intellectually disabled, or are you implying that I am not actually a writer? Seems like you are implying both.>>5265275Exposition is telling people what is happening. My first posts tell people NOTHING ABOUT THE SETTING. It just says "Oh, everything is on fire and you know nothing".>ExampleAlso, prose and exposition are extremely alike. "Exposition is the act of explaining something. Prose is the ordinary form of speaking or writing"The first post literally uses informal, written language to say you know nothing.>Holy hell dude. This is a fairly normal quest OP written in prose, like a solid majority of quests.The entire first four or five posts are nothing but dry exposition. If it was any drier, it would be used to dehydrate food.
>>5265279Im gonna boil everything way the hell down, removing all other criticisms in favor of one. You have NO hook. None. No description of cool setting, no accessibility, no cool OP image or unique map. You clearly have no fucking self awareness. Maybe lurk for another two years and try again
>>5265277I was here, I remember how /civ/s would get flaked on so fucking fast we used to wonder if one or two trolls were making them all, and leaving them to die...as like a prank or something.>>5265276Dude, this is fucking insane. One person is telling me that I need to avoid exposition and explaining anything, now you're telling me I need to establish the setting. Which is it? >>5265276>Maybe add a summary of how gameplay is expected to be after that as it is a civ.This might be the most helpful advice so far.
>>5265279If a player is denied an option they want, they might leave. It’s about the rejection, not the lack of choice.
>>5265285Nobody is going to have an aneurysm if you have a paragraph or two establishing the setting. I mean, maybe you have some super secret plan to reveal it over time which is cool and all, but people will bounce off if they have nothing at all to latch on to.
>>5265283A hook would be like being rebels in Africa, but I was just told (Possibly by you, who gives a fuck) that no one wants to be rebels in Africa. Everything you mention contradicts something else someone else said, again, possibly you. You are mostly asking for exposition, which I was just told to not do. I was just told that sensory overload is a problem, but you are asking for a completely filled in map with like 10-35 colors on it. OP image can't be a specific location, people just a few posts up explained why it can't be a specific location. >HookThe fact that basically the entire planet is at war could be a hook, but if I explained who was at war with who and why, it would be pointless if you're stationed nowhere near the fighting.>>5265286That's decently less insane than what I wear hearing earlier.>>5265287Okay, so you say I need at least two paragraphs describing the setting, but then I was just told I had exposition and too much. So I somehow had too much exposition and not enough, I somehow have like paragraphs and paragraphs, but not two.... Which is it?
>>5265279>Seems like you are implying both.You are being defensive in a thread you yourself made for people to give you advice about your failed quest. >You are literally sitting down and telling me that if the wrong option is picked, people will leave... but if any good options don't exist... They will just sit and play a trash /qst/ with nothing they like?Let me give you a scenario. You have a table at a bake sale. Your customers like peach cobbler, but love chocolate cake. You don't like chocolate cake. What do you do?>Offer the chocolate cake and the peach cobbler. Your customers demand chocolate cake. You burn out of baking chocolate cake every day and quit the bake sale.>Offer the chocolate cake and the peach cobbler. Now a majority of your customers like peach cobbler, but some hate it and only like chocolate cake. Your majority demands that you spend all your time baking peach cobbler, so the chocolate cake customers-- who were standing in line for chocolate cake-- are sad and leave.>Offer the peach cobbler. The people who love peach cobbler and the people who like peach cobbler (but prefer chocolate cake) both stay. The minority of people who hate peach cobbler never come to your stand in the first place.>>5265279>Also, prose and exposition are extremely alike.??????????????????"Prose" is something written in a narrative format, like you were reading it as a story. "Exposition" is when you spend time directly explaining your setting or plot, not necessarily in prose, and is often called out for being unnatural and boring. >One person is telling me that I need to avoid exposition and explaining anything, now you're telling me I need to establish the setting.EXPLAIN THINGS IN A NATURAL INTERESTING CONCISE WAY OH MY GOD
>>5265289>it would be pointless if you're stationed nowhere near the fighting.STATION THE MC BY THE FIGHTING
>>5265289>A hook would be like being rebels in Africa, but I was just told (Possibly by you, who gives a fuck) that no one wants to be rebels in Africa.WHO TOLD YOU THISLINK TO IT>but you are asking for a completely filled in map with like 10-35 colors on it.HE IS NOT DOING THIS
>>5265289>Everything you mention contradicts something else someone else said, again, possibly you. The fuck? Yeah, because you’re asking for advice, so different people are giving different opinions. Congratulations, you’ve figured it out: if two pieces of advice are contradictory, you can only follow one. Good for you. None of us are magically solving this for you. It’s your fucking job to read the advice and figure out what to take, and what to drop.
>>5265290I'm being told that the food is too dry and too wet at the same time, of course I am frustrated.>Let me give you a scenario. There are a lot of problems with this, one of them is that as a baker I like baking everything. I actually have years of offering chocolate cake, but the customer simply walks up to the ordering screen and somehow manages to add and take away things till it's blueberry pie. Maybe a week later somehow the blueberry pie is actually Ravioli somehow, but again, I like baking so much that somehow includes foods that are not actually baked.In other words, if I slapped down one of those old /civ/ fantasy things, everything to me looks good.>ProseI have three books on writing and none of them say that is what prose means. I just Googled all four definitions of Prose and they don't match either. Prose means either informal speech, boring long fluffy text.It literally dates back to older words meaning "direct speech" and examples in old literature indicate that it means something like "written words that read like rambling". In writing critic circles, "prose" is often a dirty term. It's a polite say of saying your writing is so bad, you need to kill yourself... or it just means "written text".
>>5265289Bitch we have IDs. Learn to fucking read them instead of being a fucking annoying schizo and assuming everyone who is getting frustrated with your autistic, hostile ass is one person.God, fuck me for trying to help people.
>>5265296You literally made those definitions of prose up, holy fucking shit. You are a retarded schizo. You know, we have a guy on /qst/ who 100 percent thinks he is a Vampiric Sorcerer who runs with then global elite. He has run multiple successful threads and is well liked despite his eccentricity. You just fucking suck.
>>5265296>I actually have years of offering chocolate cake, but the customer simply walks up to the ordering screen and somehow manages to add and take away things till it's blueberry pie. Maybe a week later somehow the blueberry pie is actually Ravioli somehow, but again, I like baking so much that somehow includes foods that are not actually baked.But this isn't how bake sales work. You can't bake for individual people's tastes, because there's only one you and you'll burn out from baking seventy different things. So you offer set options which customers have to pick from, and if they try to tell you to bake blueberry pie you tell them to fuck off. >In writing critic circlesYou are a guy who couldn't even run a quest, which has the average writing quality of a dishrag and an audience of lowest common denominator autists.
This thread is already much more entertaining than your first quest. Congrats on a successful second try Anon!
>>5265299I think it's because Souv is polite and self-effacing to a fault and appears to be legitimately intelligent on top of that. All traits our OP doesn't share.
>>5265291It is impossible to positioned anywhere people are not actually going to fight, it's just that you're likely to not pick somewhere that is anywhere near where the MAJOR GLOBAL POWERS are fighting. Think of WW2, tons of fighting was not in Europe or even North Africa or the Pacific Islands. The bulk of people who died were actually on the Mainland for Asia, and that fighting started like three decades prior. If the players pick to be Chinese Nationalists fighting off bandits and the Japanese, who gives a fuck about anything happening in Europe? >>5265292>no cool OP image or unique mapSo this is not asking for the map to be unique?>>5265299Dude, go onto wikipedia right now and Google the word Prose. The results will be what I mentioned, not what you mentioned.Are you literally too headstrong to Google words you THINK you understand?
>>5265304>it's just that you're likely to not pick somewhere that is anywhere near where the MAJOR GLOBAL POWERS are fighting.THEN STATION THEM NEAR THE MAJOR GLOBAL POWERS >So this is not asking for the map to be unique?THE MAP IS NOT A COOL OP IMAGE REGARDLESS OF THE AMOUNT OF COLORS
>>5265303My only issue with Souv is he just runs shit in qtq between threads but Im not going to pretend he was taking up space for good content. I just use the place for ads and laughing at qm drama anyway.
>>5265308I mean, I completely agree, but because he's so polite I don't get that mad about it. I'm glad he made his own thread today though.
>>5265303I think he’s an annoying motherfucker, but god yeah he’s really nice. Schizophrenic as fuck, but actually has intelligence. Op has just been a faggot the whole time who gets overly defensive. >>5265304Just don’t use the map. The map fucking sucks. Use something else.
>>5265304Nigga, you are so fucking, monumentally stupid you have conflated "purple prose" a pejorative, with "prose" the generic term for how nearly every single fictional work has utilized language since the invention of fiction.How the fuck do you walk outside and not get misted by a truck, failing to accept what a fucking road is, you god damned moron?
>>5265301But I am not baking 70 different things, I am merely flexible and able to make something specific based on what 3-6 random people want to include and not include into something I am cooking. I'll give you a hint, it's a skill you learn by using the products that are talked about on /tg/.This thread literally said over and over that /civ/s fail purely because people expect them to fail, so no one has any interest in them. Are you going to argue with those other people?>>5265306They said cool or unique..... OR. Do you know what OR means?>>5265311I'm not defensive. I'm being told to do things I did, or not do things I didn't do. I'm also being told to do something and not do it.

I think by now, it’s clear that you’re not gonna take any feedback, and there’s no point arguing in here any further, apart from entertainment. So I’ve gone through the OP one last time and tried to simplify my conclusive advice as best as I can.>What I would like to know, where exactly do you think I went wrong?By being you.

>>5265339The first meaning is "written words in general", you picked that as your option. If I read to you a story, that is a narration. If I read to you a narrative, that is narration.

That was what you said, you didn't check to see what you were saying before you said it.>>5265341One of the dictionaries describes the original meaning for prose as writing in an informal manner, such as a steam of consciousness.

I also said that Prose has multiple definitions, something like three or four times. >>5265344No no no no no>1) Everyone gives conflicting advice>2) People tell at the OP instead of each other, despite conflicting advice>3) People contradict themselves>4) People argue for shit and don't even know what they are arguing about.
>>5265314Okay but the serious response to this is that YOU TAKE SO LONG COMBINING ALL THE INGREDIENTS THAT YOUR CUSTOMERS ALL LEAVE
>>5265351But that's not what happened and thus that can't be something that can go wrong. What you are describing literally can't happen. Mostly because anything you pick will just have three fucking ingredients.

>>5265354>What you are describing literally can't happen.>I recently made a /qst/ a few days ago, but it's become very obvious that it is "shit". Only one person has interacted in days and that one person has not done anything in 24 hours.

We’re here to give YOU advice, not distil the essence of a quest. >>5265293 take whatever you think is useful, between two contradictory pieces of advice.

This are your leads in the investigation: [insert 3 or 4 things the player can do]"You can still keep your setting and if you dislike what you are making it wont matter since its a oneshot.something made to last 1 thread or 2 tops.keep thing small.

>>5265365I HAVE BEEN YELLING FOR HALF THE THREAD BECAUSE YOU ARE ONE OF THE DUMBEST MOST AUTISTIC PEOPLE I HAVE HAD THE DISPLEASURE OF INTERACTING WITH ON THIS BOARDYou might notice that I interact normally with normal people in this thread.
>>5265365The proper response to the mentally challenged is to increase voice volume.Just like how you own 6 dictionaries or some shit I work at an assisted living home so I know these things.
Holy shit this has more activity than the actual quest.
>>5265371This literally has the most activity on the board.
>>5265372I wish more people would make these threads, even if they're technically illegal. Either it's improving the quality of future threads or it's quality entertainment.
>>5265364Okay, let me break it down for you.Imagine that instead of what I did, I instead asked the players to pick something like a species and class. Now imagine that what species you pick effects how your class is different, let's say the elves have different wizards than everyone else.That's basically what happened.Now, I appear to be told that I should be writing like two paragraphs about being a human wizard.....when we might end up as a Elf Warlock......Don't scream at me and tell me I need something dramatic. That's being retarded. Rise above the retardation and tell me a fucking solution to my problem. >>5265366I ran a ton of those years ago and I got bored with them because it was just one guy. Other people were really into them, but not me. I also used to run different types of /civ/s and all of them did well enough to last multiple threads.I used to let people pick from six factions and then change one feature of that faction, because they were going to be all the factions they could pick from were dead...and they were picking the feature that would allow them to rise from the ashes.So like, someone might pick something like the Roman Empire, but change one thing about it to explain why it would rise and last, unlike the Roman Empire.All of this was done, it was good, it's all canon and I ran like 30+ players in TTRPGs in the aftermath of what the /qst/ people did...But I want to do something different now.
>>5265367>>5265361>>5265360Success! After seeing a particularly uninformed post in which an Anon had the gall to YELL at him (in all caps, no less), OP’s blood pressure skyrockets: 190/130. Hypertensive crisis. The pressure could be contained no longer. The cerebral aneurysm bursts open. Blood pushes gushes forth and pushes against the surrounding grey matter, creating a focal lesion in his frontal lobe. Despite losing the majority of his executive functions, OP feels almost nothing – only a vague sense of lightness, as if freed from a vestigial organ. Shockingly, his desire to post only intensifies.What could be done to stop this madman? Roll again for another aneurysm?
Rolled 3 (1d100)>>5265375>as if freed from a vestigial organ.top kek
>>5265368Anon, even if you beat him with a golf club you wont get through to him.He is searching for something to fix his questI dont think there is a direct path to "making it work"at least not if he plans on making another quest with the exact same premise.
>>5265374With all sincerity, at this point, the answer to your "problem" is probably available in a variety of sizes. 9mm, 556, and 12 gauge all come to mind.
>>5265379I'm not planning on taking write-ins currently, but I might consider this one.
>>5265375If I lost most of my executive functions I would become bored with text and have trouble remembering what exactly is going on. While drunk or sleep deprived, most people lack interest to write lots of words and read lots of words anyways.So realistically, I would likely forget what I was doing and go to sleep, or start masturbating or I would get hungry.>>5265379Agree, considering how angry I am, I believe that homicide will make me feel a lot better. Though honestly, I think .45 ACP is better because I want to be quiet. Gunshots wake far too many young children.
>>5265374>tell me a fucking solution to my problem.NOPEOPLE HAVE BEEN GIVING YOU SOLUTIONS THE ENTIRE THREAD AND YOUR RESPONSE HAS BEEN UNIVERSALLY "B BUT I DON'T LIKE THIS / B BUT THIS IS A DIFFERENT SOLUTION THAN THE OTHER SOLUTION / STRAIGHT UP MISREADING IT"THERE IS NO POINT IN HELPING YOU YOU ARE BAD AND YOU SHOULD FEEL BAD>>Now, I appear to be told that I should be writing like two paragraphs about being a human wizard.....when we might end up as a Elf Warlock......MAKE THEM A HUMAN WIZARD MAKE THEM A HUMAN WIZARD MAKE THEM A HUMAN WIZARD MAKE THEM A HUMAN WIZARD MAKE THEM A HUMAN WIZARD MAKE THEM A HUMAN WIZARD THERE'S YOUR SOLUTION OH MY GOD

>>5265382That's not a solution. Do you not understand that basically every single thread has people voting on who the fuck they are? Even the one linked to, had people voting on the character's skills and backstory.
Rolled 13 (1d100)>>5265374>tell me a fucking solution to my problem.We've given you our own solutions. Like I've said thrice now, you have to figure out YOUR solution from the information we give.

You're picking up absolutely nothing from actual advice, you have no fucking reading comprehension. >>5265375

>>5265386Yeah but your dumb ass clearly needs training wheels so maybe stick to one option. At most two. Dont want to stress out the big brain on Brett
>>5265384>Doesn't understand that suppressed, .45 ACP is quieter, because it's sub-sonic. >>5265387Half the "solutions" contradict all the other working /qst/s on this board. I can look right now at all the working /qst/s and what they do, and I am being told to not do whatever they are doing.Most of the "advice" is like this.>>5265391And I said that I had literally done that years ago and mastered it years ago. I've had more successful threads then most of you here, I'm just obviously having serious issues with a format that is nothing like what I normally do.>>5265390I did that for yearrrrrrrrsssssssss. I said that over and over and over.....Also, if I am running a /civ/ and everyone says I am running a /civ/... Why are you telling me to not do /civ/ things? I was also told that tons of /civ/s are thriving right now. Logically, is the solution to not /civ/ harder?
>>5265392>Most of the "advice" is like this.You seem to have an extremely clear idea of the advice that you should be receiving (but aren't, because we are all contradicting each other). Why don't you tell us what you think the advice should be?
>>5265392>And I said that I had literally done that years ago and mastered it years ago. I've had more successful threads then most of you here(x)
>>5265394Seconded.Also, can someone else roll? The sooner ObserverQM can kill off Op, the sooner we can leave.
>>5265394Okay, I would start the advice by clearing up how much information you would be interested to know, if you might end up playing basically any location in the world. >but we said not to do thatJust breathe. Breathe.Imagine you exist in multiple timelines, blah blah, in some of them you want to be X Force during WW2 and others you want to be in Ethiopia or whatever.Now, imagine what information about the wider world would be a "hook" to you, if you picked either of these locations. How detailed is that information? Is it exactly two paragraphs? Do you care what Japan is doing? Do you care what Italy is doing? Would you prefer to just have the two alliances dropped and get the general idea what they stand for?How much do you want to know about the wider world, presuming it might be important or not?>But I said human wizardYou exist in two timelines. One you pick human wizard/Ethiopia, the other you pick Elf Warlock/X Force.
>>5265398Correct. I agree, Op, you should follow this advice, whatever this is.
>>5265394The second thing that I would provide if I was giving advice to myself.Clearly dry narration is bad, and clearly whatever my first post was, was also bad. I would either explain that the first OP doesn't explain anything, but it "feels" like dry narration. I would explain clearly if I want an informal narrative or not, if I want the first post to be like in third person or something or not. I would also be super clear if the first post gives TOO MUCH information or NOT ENOUGH. If it was the wrong kind, I would say that and say so specifically.
>>5265398Okay *my* revised advice for you is as follows:>If you need the exact template of the OP post spelled out for you literally step by step (protip: nobody follows a step by step template for this, which is why nobody has provided one), you are straight up not going to hack it and should grab that .45>>5265401kek
>>5265405True, true, real shit my dude. Yeah you ought to follow that.
Rolled 43 (1d100)>>5265375Rolling again.
>>5265398Thats... very complicated for a text only format.have you considered taking medication?You are on the same path as Submarine OP and he got burned by his quest.not sure how he made it, go read the general.Its there... i think.
>>5265413Submarine OP is based tho
>>5265394Third thing for giving advice,I would sit my ass down and figure out why exactly the /civ/ format normally struggles and what it's benefits are. Clearly the OP is insane and wants to do something a lot like a /civ/ so I can't talk him out of this idea. The only thing I can do is make sure his /civ/ is the best /civ/ it could be. I guess.Civs provide a lot of options, I need to decide if this is what kills /civ/s or really the problem is that people think the OP will flake. If I think the problem is people expecting the OP to flake, maybe I can try and think of how the OP can see like an insane person will need to write to live, and thus would die before flaking.After all, who cares if the OP is insane, as long as he doesn't flake right?Now, it is possible I think the REAL PROBLEM or equal problem, is that people look at a big menu and then everyone orders something else. I need to explain why we need to fundamentally strip out the core of /civ/ in this /civ/ to address this issue.
>>5265415he is.Math for fun
>>5265417Yeah yeah totally yeah I think you got this all figured out. Good stuff op.
>>5265413How the fuck is it complicated? It's two paragraphs or it's one or its three. Why do you think I would be burned? Do you legit think I am not an actual writer, that I don't actually like writing?Here's an insane question... why did I provide the whole fucking world in the first picture I posted in my trash /civ/? Was it because I wanted us to only play Japan?
>>5265392Its clear to me. Your defense mechanism is being an oldfag or some shit. Lemme tell ya somthin rick./qst/ was always slow. Three years ago? Slow. Five? Slow. Before that? Didnt fucking exist. I ran quests on fucking /tg/, that was really the only time multiple updates in an hour was a thing.You are a liar, a poser, and a retard.
>>5265417>I would sit my ass down blah blah blahFantastic. How about you go ahead, do that, and apply that to your next civ. Thread solved, great job everybody!>why did I provide the whole fucking world in the first picture I posted in my trash /civ/?Because you don't know what a good OP image is kek
>>5265411>>5265387>>5265376Failure!The hypertensive episode was subsiding. Blood loss from the burst aneurysm had relieved some of the pressure in OP’s overtaxed circulatory system. But there could by another option…A glimmer catches OP’s eye. On the nightstand next to his bed, he sees his pistol. Chambered in 45ACP no less. God’s caliber. Powerful enough to win two world wars, but quiet enough to be fired without waking the young children sleeping in the room nearby. The round was subsonic after all, and subsonic rounds don’t make any noise – even when fired from a pistol inside a closed room. OP flips off the safety, checks the chamber, and places it against his temple. Willpower test, best 3d100.

Fundamentally, the biggest issue is that most of the "advice" is worded and communicated in the worst possible fashion......Or it's basically advice like "Don't do a /civ/", which is not helpful. Maybe "here is a list of problems with /civ/s bro. I can explain my thought process bro" MIGHT... MIGHT be helpful. >>5265421Did I say multiple updates an hour? Did I ever say it's not slow? >>5265422>Be on a board that is mostly text>NEED PRETTY PICTURES! >>5265426I literally said it's quiet if you suppress it. Do you not understand that two suppressed guns are about the same noise, but the bullets are different volumes as they travel through the air?
>>5265420>How the fuck is it complicated? It's two paragraphs or it's one or its three.Becouse if each there are two timelines what stops the writing from creating more?And even if they stay paralel, how do you regulate the the intersections in the story?I think it has the potential to spiral out of control.>Why do you think I would be burned?

What is really sad, is that I literally gave all of you a manual about how to give advice and it's still beyond all of you.>>5265432Let me try again, though you appear to be pretending to be drunk or stupid.There are things that you want to do, these are terminal goals. Cure cancer, have a billion dollars, run a marathon. Then there are instrumental goals, which are things that help you, like getting money.Having money helps you get closer to a billion dollars, you can use money to cure cancer, and you can hire trainers to help you run a marathon.I wanting to know how much "prose" or whatever the fuck is enough for whatever the /qst/ will end up being.
>What is really sad, is that I literally gave all of you a manual about how to give advice and it's still beyond all of you.But you already gave the advice. Why would we give it again?>I wanting to know how much "prose" or whatever the fuck is enough for whatever the /qst/ will end up being.A billion prose.
>>5265436Shotguns don't come in calibers.
>>5265447Dude, I gave a manual on how you would review a poem or /civ/, that is not the same as getting critique on a poem or /civ/.>A billion prose.This just proves that you never actually wanted to help, you just wanted to troll this entire time.
>>5265451>This just proves that you never actually wanted to help, you just wanted to troll this entire time.I wanted to help (as I suspect everyone here did) until I realized that it was pointless and I could just have fun. You should roll next update btw.
>>5265449Where in that post do I say shit about shotguns? I can almost guarantee I've handled more firearms in my life than you have, especially as I still suspect your ass is in 8th grade.Get better materiel. That said, I would generally prefer you do off yourself with a shotgun."Make you life a line of poetry punctuated with a streak of blood."Buddy, you could punctuate it with a fucking Pollock painting!
>>5265445>I wanting to know how much "prose"that is hard...like, Kobold Klan adoption needs a lot but Violent Masquerade: Super Thief Drawquest! needs the bare minimun.You on the other hand... need a break?experiment on how much you can write in 30 min and draw conclusions from therethe quest should adapt to what you can do.not hte other way around.
>>5265454No, the people before you gave advice. You showed up way later and most of what you said was never helpful at all. You did say "Avoid looking like a civ", which is not helpful as everyone else before you was saying "Just say you are a /civ/"
>>5265458Man I gave you like four posts of genuine shit before deciding you deserve pain. We tried, you rejected it in the worst way, enjoy being a punching bad until the one mod that browses /qst/ wakes up and deletes this shit.
>>5265433>>5265429>>5265427Critical success!OP does not hesitate for a second. In fact, his executive brain functions had already been neutered by the aneurysm he had suffered a few minutes earlier. It would be more accurate to say that he no longer had the capacity to hesitate. He inhales and squeezes. The hammer drops.A .45 ACP round glides soundlessly through his skull, pulverizing the entirety of his frontal and parietal lobes. A shower of blood and bone fragments spray from the exit wound, covering the wall with a spray of gore. He pauses for a second, teetering. Fortunately, he still hears snoring from the room next to him. Thank god the children were still asleep.Could this be it? Is OP finally dead? Is it possible for him to still post using only the battered remnants of his brainstem?I apologize in advance for the poor artwork. Hopefully it conveys the message despite the crude presentation.
>>5265462Holy fuck. Absolutely soulful quest, thank you QM! Here's a little something for Op to use.
>>5265462I fell out of my fucking chair.Pic fucking saved.
>>5265461Everyone before you tried, your advice was "Don't do a /civ/ even though you are clearing doing a /civ/"
>>5265470G-guys it's moving... Don't take your hands off or you'll get haunted.
>>5265470My advice was the market for civs is cutthroat because most flake. Hell most quests flake but civs are more extreme than thatBut expecting your peabrain to get nuance is laughable.
No one cares, but I am deciding that perhaps there is something I could use as an image that works no matter where the people pick to be the setting. I had to look for pictures for 30 minutes, but I might be somewhere close to what I need.If you weren't johnny come latelys and retarded, I would've found the right picture by now, and likely figured out the optimal method. Also, I went to a completely different website and they said "Just do another thread after the first one votes on something. So if the first thread votes for the African Jungle, you can do that, but not have the starting image for the first thread be African Jungle."
>>5265474And I said six times that everyone but you seemed to be saying you're full of shit and /civ/s are doing pretty well for themselves now.Also I said over and over that I remember how /civ/s were super flakey.
>>5265470He lives! While the brain might be gone, the body... yet still postsWhat could be done to stop this...monster?>Write In?

>>5265478>Write InBait him into sticking fingers into CD tray, before closing it and slicing them off
>>5265475Very interesting. But I feel the other forum(not real) neglected to inform you the optimal outcome is still just mcfucking shooting yourself.

>>5265485I think I've laughed out loud more in this thread than at anything in like a solid month
>>5265482Success! In his addled state, he inserts his left hand into the CD tray and closes it, severing his fingertips. But OP is persistent. While his posting speed may have slowed, he still has another hand to type with...
Wow, you're so upset about me and defensive, that you had to make me into a meme for a meme template that was stale like how many years ago?
>>5265485...which he uses to access the opportunities section of the IRS website. He begins to fill out an application...
>>5265494>so upset about me and defensiveI think this is what we here in the /qst/ biz define as "projection."Also I don't want the jannies ruining this, so we're archived: https://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=severe%20autism
>>5265496The fact that you gave shitty advice and then got so defensive over the fact that I pointed out your advice is shit... proves you are the one coping.I am here because I am the OP, you are here because you can't let shit go.

>>5265528The piston system has unacceptable recoil. The front trunion has a tendecny to break if made poorly. It is easy to get mud into the device because the top cover isn't fitted tightly compared to the AR platform, which has super tight lockup when the bolt is closed. Most cheap ammo is corrosive, so cleaning is often a huge pain. I could go on.

Thank you >>5265544 for making me laugh until I cried.I am very happy I clicked on this thread, OP just calm down and re-read the advice a couple times and maybe you will overcome your autism, despite how much I enjoyed laughing at you this thread I still believe in your ability to do better, eventually.
