Despite repeated delays, Galloping Steel lives!
Bath likes drawing pictures of pones being killed, tortured, or otherwise bullied by the universe. Treads is just an easy target.
I'm well-aware of that. I may have said before that the Treads bullying is anons making the art and memes they want to make (out of a character THEY created, no less. Remember that ultimately, I wasn't the one who designed Treads) that isn't effecting Galloping Steel itself in any tangible way. Thus, even though it's not to my taste, I have no business stomping around demanding it be stopped.
That's not entirely true. I just like drawing stupid and funny shit and Stuff. And most if not all of the Treads bullying pics were actually requested by people. Although, bullying pones is funny to me it not like it's mutually exclusive.
Also, recently I've found turning the hose on ponies is pretty funny... For me at least.
Depends on what you're looking for in it. If you're expecting a deep story about a kid repairing from trauma you'll be disappointed, but if you're expecting a lewd quest it's fine.
Actually, I think that would work out just fine.

Hey guys, just wanted to let ya know that I'm not gonna be running tonight. I should be good for picking back up tomorrow, however.
And to the anon that drew this fanart; thank you! I don't really care what the quality of the art is - I'm just happy and excited that you drew it in the first place! I went ahead and redid it if you don't mind.
Of course not, Anon. Th-that would be crazy.

The reason why you don't invite MC's to a funeral
One of the things I did today.
The rest will be up some other time.
Thanks man. Really enjoying the quest.
Given the blood there it's petals would cut off any limbs outside of their grasp. Then traditionally carnivorous plants use acid to dissolve their pray. Their bell fills slowly with acid as they generate it over the course of hours. So you'd be screaming and bleeding everywhere until your throat is raw and bloody, then you get to sit and try to avoid the rising acid level. Then just deal with the pain as it slowly travels up your body until you finish bleeding out from ruptured veins in your lower body.
As a member of secret club, I would like to apologize for taking away vital discussion from /cyoag/
Superior version obtained.
Pretty much anyone who hops on picarto.
The thought process is typically, "I want to do ponies, but with..." or "I want to have ponies doing...", so regardless of the merits of the "X with ponies" model, saying those QMs would be happier at /tg/ is false.
I'd like to point out that X with ponies is distinct from ponies with X. One implies a base of ponies with something else on top a base of something else with ponies sprinkled on top.
No it does not, I certainly haven't bothered to count. Maybe a half dozen of active quests have the problem, If that isn't enough to justify the word 'lots' go fuck yourself and then replace it with 'several'.
I'd prefer "a number of", but semantics will distract from the main point. Most QMs who have the "problem" are choosing to PB&chocolate combine two things they love, one of those being ponies. Take away either one of those things and they'd be less happy, making /tg/ a less fun choice for them, even if it might be a more sensible point in some purely objective (and thus, impossible to obtain in this situation, but hey, for the sake of argument...) sense.
Would it be anything like your last attempt at a western setting?
we don't speak of it
It was supposed to be Steel's mission, but I fucked everything up before I got the blal rolling, so I abandoned it wholesale and tried to work with the remains
is this what you are talking about?
a quest where you are a young nerdy (but very beautiful) earth pony trying to survive her first estrus. you need to go about your day, going to school, work, the shops, meeting friends, running errands, while trying not to get fucked during your first estrus, which is a particularly strong estrus that makes you wet at the sight of a stallion and makes any stallion within nose range hard. try not to ruin your bright future with a foal.
if so then i don't think anybody has decided to take it up yet.
>you will never corner quick fix in his home
>you will never stifle his screams of terror as you press your mouth over his
>you will never slam relentlessly atop his dick, rocking and creaking his bed with every pump
>you will never hear him breathlessly call your name as he shoot rope after sticky rope of his hot cum deep into you
>you'll never collapse onto him, spent and satisfied

>you will never have griz for sloppy seconds
what about that idea for a herding quest, where you need to gather up a large herd as quickly as you can, because if you don't have a larger herd than your brother before your father dies, then he gets all the families inheritance.
Earth. Unicorn. Pegasus. Bat. My grandmother used to tell me stories about the old days, a time of peace when the Alicorn kept balance between the Pegasus Tribes, Earth Kingdom, Unicorn States, and Bat Nation. But that all changed when the Bat Nation attacked. Only the Alicorn mastered all four forms of pony magic. Only she could stop the ruthless batfags. But when the world needed her most, she vanished. A hundred years have passed and the Bat Nation is nearing victory in the War. Two years ago, my father and the men of my tribe journeyed to the Earth Kingdom to help fight against the Bat Nation, leaving me and my brother to look after our tribe. Some people believe that the Alicorn was never reborn into the unicorns, and that the cycle is broken. But I haven't lost hope. I still believe that somehow, the Alicorn will return to save the world.
It was supposed to be really really stupid. That was the whole point. We were joking about casting the bats as the fire nation and I wanted to point out exactly what that would look like. I'd never want to actually play that as a quest.
Complain all you want, but I know you wont be complaining about them hips
True. Let's complain about Tara instead. She has a face.
Can we complain about Fruit Flank's family instead?
Serious talk for a moment here. The dude's dad is an adventuring hero that had the balls to stick his dick in a changling queen; at least twice. He adopts orphaned kids and race doesn't seem to matter, so I give him props for that.
So to start I want to bring up two things that bother me. First and foremost is his shitty job at teaching his kids to defend themselves. When your line of work is fighting monsters and recovering lost artifacts, you don't want your kids being easy targets. Yet Fruit Flank spends the majority of his time getting his ass beat.
The second thing is. What the hell is he doing NOW? You'd think he and Fruit's older siblings would be out and about doing stuff with the apocalypse going full swing. At the very least I'd expect him to show up to make sure his kid isn't dead somewhere.
I only “assume” that because Nips has specifically stated that Fruit's mother has not be involved in his or his sister's upbringing. I can't imagine a regular changling would be that terrible of a mother, where as a kid would be a nightmare to try and keep around.
Yes, I'm well aware what assuming does, but that makes some sense doesn't it?
Bees and ants are all female except for the ones that impregnate a drone that becomes a queen quadAnon.
Waiting for random event.
>Fruit's mother has not be involved in his or his sister's upbringing.
Don't remind me
It's okay. He has a neurotic, overprotective sister that was probably like a surrogate mom. Likely gave him and the other young-lings bedtime snacks and tucked them, never forgetting to read them the latest Daring Do books or one of her dad's stories.
I wish I had an overprotective big sister
where are you getting all this information about fruity's family? i have been following the quest from the beginning and have not heard any of this. all i know is his father is an earth pony and had exotic taste in women. oh and he's probably rich.
The thing you have to understand is he is 1 of 20 siblings. Yes the dad probably TRIES to teach them how to at least defend themselves when they hit a certain age but with 20 kids, that's gotta be rough.
Also why would they be out and about hunting the same spirit that we are right now? We've already seen that not everybody knows about what's going on.
God damn that's cute. Stop making me wish nips would make that a real thing.
Actual content, word of author, and pure speculation mingle freely on this board. You know how when the show doesn't explain something a hundred headcanons show up to rectify the situation? That's a lot of what is happening here.
That was my whole point. If you have no idea where a fact ca e from, don't forget that there is always the possibility it came from nowhere and is just headcanon.
Nips talks alot about his quests in his picarto chats. He hasn't revealed very much though. We know that Fruit's dad is an adventure and Fruit has 19 siblings. All of which are somehow girls. Most of them also being adopted.
I've never personally seen Nips mention anything about his dad's ability to fight or his sibling's abilities to fight. Not sure where the whole fighting monsters and artifacts thing came from. Probably headcanon.
Wow, well now I know who owns that company.
Tears and anal anguish have both been suggested, so some form of despair is clearly a crucial component. Maybe it comes in different flavors depending on what sort of unspeakable sorrow it is made out of.

Well anon, now you know what the weather is like where we all are. Are you still bored and need more smalltalk? Do you want to talk about what all of our weekend plans are or what everyone's favorite color is or some shit like that?
Not into dick.
Not into balls.
Not into futanari of any kind.
I'm sure we're all into something that would horrify everyone else, though, so I can't judge.
nah man, this is Fruit's sister right here.
Nina with her hair untied is pretty gud lad.
I like how her hair/goggles is slowly changing.
Even if nips forgot her eyelashes in the second pic
Lets go ahead and try something /CYOA/

>The pillow bursts and Nadine's throat rapidly fills with feathers, blocking her airway.
>Unable to breathe or even scream for help, she dies a lonely, fluffy death.
>Both you and Nadine escape the arena and defeat the Tharsis.
>Soon after catching your breath you see a body that looks familiar. Max is lying dead on the street. You go to him and shed some tears kneeling beside him.
>Nadine asks, "are you okay kid?"
>You look up and spy Patwrite. That son of a bitch is gonna get it. You take off after him.
>"Kid!? What the hell!?" Nadine yells as she runs after you.
After very little searching you find Alexander near some dead Pegasi.
>Alexand grins at you, "Heh... Sunny Days was it? Did you really think coming after me was a good idea?"
>"Is this your old master Sunny" Asks Nadine.
"Yes, yes he is."
>Nadine licks her lips, "I guess I'm down for a little revenge."
>Patwrite's horn begins to glow. "Who's your friend little one... Actually, it doesn't matter. I've lost many things today. Another slave won't matter much."
What do you do?
>Get's bored of hammering in nails
>Decides to fetch his revolver and stuck a nail in the barrel to create a nail gun
I think we have something pretty close to this
Use Nadine as a living shield.
No cheats. You can't get the gluon gun or the tau gun.
>No Tau Cannon
>No Gluon Gun
It truely is a sad day for all of us
>You attack Patwrite to distract him and give Nadine an opening.
You are pushed buck by a telekinetic force and and Nadine is grabbed and thrown.
>"Did you really think this would be so easy!? I thought my horny Employee would have taught you more about opening in a fight."
Patwrite picks up a sword and summons blades that point at you.
Next update will take a while.
Because it's always bullshit in some way. They inevitably have sense-everything-behind-me and catch-the-fast-moving-projectile powers.
They also tend to just stand there being smug fucks. They don't move to fight.
Well, I generally like to think that you average unicorn is very limited in ability, to the point where some would fight with their hooves because their telekinesis and other magic just can't cut it.
I don't feel like they're necessarily annoying because they're broke. They just give fights a certain favour. You're either taking them by surprise and killing them or the have you pinned against the ceiling and the only reason you're alive is because they're monologuing. Or you're one of them too and you're having a power struggle. A fight with a big fuck that won't die might be just as threatening, but it feels different. There's movement and action, and even if you're losing you're still trading blows, and they still have to work for it.
You can still have that flavor of fight without ever using telekinesis, though. What about a unicorn who shoots an insane volley of deadly energy beams that make it impossible to get near him? Just like before, you're either taking them by surprise and killing them or they have you pinned behind cover with blasts and the only reason you're alive is because they're monologuing.
>Nadine pulls herself up from being thrown, "Ya could have told me that this guy wasn't a normal pin-head."
"Nadine! This is my fight, get out of here, save yourself."
>Before Nadine can act Alexander says, "That's just fine with me. I want to take my own sweet time..."
>Alexander reels back the sword he piked up and begins slowly approaching you. The summoned blades follow with Patwrite's steps.
The spectral weapons can be knocked aside with a sweep of the shield. Then if we take the sword we can stab him through the throat. There's nothing we can really do against multiple weapons except end it quickly, if we try to defend they'll just get around our defense.
>You decide that it's best to do whatever you can as quickly as you can. So you try charging him again Slashing on your way in.
>The surprise from your sudden attack causes the summoned blades to dispel as he blocks your attack with the sword he is controlling.
>The telekineticly controlled sword is a lot more sturdy than you would have guessed. Then again, if this unicorn can throw an entire pony...
>Alexander backs away a bit as he continues to block your charge.
How do you proceed?
Parry. Step to the right, push your sword tip to the left using his as a pivot point, letting the force of his strike swing into the air or the ground. Deflect, don't stop, continue forward.
>You decide that what you really want to do is chop off his horn. Let him live knowing what he lost.
>You easily slip under his sword and continue your charge.
>You hear the sword drop behind you as lightning shoots out of his horn, hitting your shield.
>Your foreleg stiffens up and you lose some of your sensation in it. Your ability to you the shield has dropped as a result and four leg movement is now hindered.
>As you recover you see Alexander pull out a small bag.
>You also hear Nadine yell out, "I just had to take a little breather kid.I'm not letting a fucker like this get his way."
What do you try?
>You take a deep breath and charge in. You hold your breath in anticipation of whatever could be in the bag.
>As you get close Alexander tosses some seed on the ground. as they meet the floor his magic causes them to rapidly grow. and you are knocked back.
>Nadine catches up to you with her sword sheathed, "Get up kid, I don't think he's done."
>The plants continue trashing around for a while until they start pointing at you.
>You can see a red glow behind the plants.
How are ya gonna get out of this un?
So, if the players are evenly split on what to do, how should I decide. I've been derided for letting the dice decide that before, though it seems the most fair way to me.
What do you guys think?
>Nadine begins picking you up from behind.
"Nadine, We need to get away from those things."
>She drags you back as the plants begin pounding the ground where you were.
"I guess Max wasn't the only one who wanted to pound me, huh!? You know, it's strange how you can grow huge vines, but you can't seem to grow hair!"
>The vines burst into flames revealing Patwrite levitating more fire.
>"Enjoy the use of your tongue while you can child. You won't have it for long."
What is your next choice action?
>ponies don't have souls
Good job Nips.
It's more like an innate disbelief that anything I produce is capable of getting attached to.
"Nadine you go right I'll go left."
"Hey Patwrite! A pin head like you would never be able to get it from me!"
>"If I wanted to have sex with a bratty little whore, I could have taken you any time I wanted Mud-horse."
>Both you and Nadine run at him from both sides of the burning plants.
>Alexander launches his fire at you leaving himself open to Nadine who strikes his side.
>After getting hit Alexander pushes Nadine back with his telekinesis and laughs a bit, " I haven't bleed in a good long time. It's kind of Nostalgic really."
>The fall you took from the force the fire somehow exerted on you was more painful that the singing of you face. You landed on your back and right elbow. You are beginning to feel tired.
>Nadine still looks like she is doing okay and Patwrite is now bleeding.
I should probably stop doing this and go back to running 11-54...
>Nadine is still recovering from being thrown.
>Alexander begins to approach her, summoning Blades again.You get to your feet and shout.
"Brave words for an old pony with a blade inches from his heart."
>Alexander turns to you and you see a small glow coming from his wound, "Perhaps Though I doubt you know brave."
>The summoned blades begin to turn toward you.
>You begin picking up your sword but it seems to be stuck on the ground as a red glow surrounds it and the glow at Alexander's side disappears.
What action do you take?
Once again, move forward, swing with your shield if he moves all at once, elsewise block normally. Moving forward quickly prevents him from aiming precisely, allowing us to block more effectively.
Talk to buy time. More specifically, bait a monologue.
"You don't think I know brave? You try a few rounds in that arena. You don't know what it's like to watch your mother die in front of you."
