Well, let's try this again, shall we?
An anon from a few days back started a Skyrim quest thread that seemed like good, low-effort fun, but he hasn't been back in some time so I thought I'd pick the idea up for a bit. This is a casual adventure in which we build a character, I control it in game, provide screenshots with relevant details, and the players decide what to do. If there is not enough interest or I get bored, we'll call it a game.
My first attempt met with a deletion as /qst/ immediately decided to test how far all my sex mods went and got raped by the first bandits to be found. This time we'll be a bit more careful, and I won't be posting even edited pictures or any lurid details should such a fate befall the hero again. Onwards!
>hypothermia, starvation, thirst, and sleep are all things
>combat is scary, mmkay?
>sex and rape happen, but will not be documented in pictures lest [pruned or deleted]
Tall/short, lithe/muscular, thin/curvy
>hair, eyes, facial features
length, color, etc.
You must choose, but choose wisely:
>soldier in army
>addict in skooma den
>arrived by ship
>pilgrim to shrine
>vampire in lair
>necromancer in lair
>witch in lair
>new guild recruit
>own property in a hold
>attacked and left for dead
>attacked by dragon
>adventurer in Dwemer ruin
>anything else that I can work into one of the above
All posts are open-ended, meaning you tell me what you want to do and I do it as best I can in the framework of the game. I will wait 10 minutes between posts for some kind of consensus to be reached if there are numerous players discussing options.
A fantasy RPG quest
You're in the magic shop of Leefside. Your party member Alina is waiting outside.

Welcome to Do Your Best Quest. A slice of life adventure with supernatural elements where our poor main character is trying to do his best out of the situations at hand, but don’t worry, just trying your best is good enough for him.

Your dear teacher Ms. Uccelli went kind of nuclear just now, you two were going to your apartment do discuss recent events involving the potential addition of a new member and what actions to take. Good thing you handle the situation great and she’s feeling just fine, that’s good for you too, right?
Before you could arrive safely home, you received a phone call, from non-other than Constance, the little mummy girl you had to babysit. You answer the phone.
“Who’s this?” It’s the voice of a girl, but not the little sweetheart you were expecting, it sounds more mature. You don’t know who this person is.
>”Excuse me, what?”
>”I’m Johnny, is Constance there?”
>”That’s what I should be saying, lady.”
>”Mi no speak English.”
(I'm sorry for the big delay.)
>”I’m Johnny, is Constance there?”
>"I was hired at Dr. Calamity's clinic to keep Constance company. I left her my work phone so she could keep in contact with me, in case she was panicking after... what happened."
This thread is a reboot of my previous quest, Metacraft:
Like the previous quest, this will be a challenge related to managing resources in order to develop an entity in an abstract environment. However, this time I'll be implementing a dice system in order to add a bit of challenge and limit automatic generation.
If this goes on for an extended period, I'll let you know when the thread will be active using this twitter account: https://twitter.com/septemberxyzx
Now, without further ado:

Welcome to Another Dragon Ball Quest ™ , a quest all about a young kid in the world of Dragon Ball and their involvement in many of the series iconic events. From Radditz to Beerus, there's no telling how far you'll go, or at least how long you can last till you get sent to another dimension!
>How do we play?
This quest functions like any other, options on what to do are brought up, using A,B,C,D, etc, and everyone of YOU votes on what you'd like the character to do. Write-In's are encouraged!
Also, we will be using a system I've seen SOM(Another great DBZ Quest Maker) use recently. For easy tasks, such as fighting normal humans or doing mundane chores, you'll roll a d20, for normal tasks such as fighting opponents who are of equal or slightly higher strength, or trying to pull off more difficult moves, you'll roll a d50, and for hard tasks, like fighting people who are much stronger than you, or fighting multiple opponents at once that have an equal strength to you, you'll roll a d100.
>Do you use Bo3 or Bo5?
Neither, I find that Best of 3 is too cruel sometimes, and that Best of 5 is too lenient. So we'll be doing a Best of 4. That means the first 4 rolls are the only ones that count, and that the highest number rolled will be the one used.
>So what kind of character will we be able to make?
You'll be playing as a young, non-human child around the same age as Gohan was at the beginning of DBZ.
>Wait, we don't get to decide if we want to play a regular human or a dog president?
Not exactly, while you'll be deciding some backstory traits and how you'll be starting this adventure off, I've realized that my limitations as a QM mean I have a hard time working with a completely group created character, so think of this as me throwing you a template that you can mess around with.
>How do we get stronger? We have to fight Raditz one on one with our eyes closed!
Increasing your Power Level is simple. Every once and a while I'll have you roll a d50, and the higher you roll the higher your power increases. For instance, rolling a 1-9 means you only increased your power by ten, while rolling a 40-49 means you increased your power by 80, and a solid 50 woul've increased it by 160. So basically it doubles each tier.
>Are we a boy or a girl?
>Are you sticking completely to cannon or can we change things?
Your actions affect the world, who's the say whether or not Vegeta leaves Earth alive like in the manga, or if Chaouzu ends up the strongest Earthling. Anything can happen.

Current Arc: Training for the Saiyans
Notice: This QM promises to try his very best for you.
You and Gohan finally step out of the bounce house, both of you falling to your knees as you let out little groans of pain. "G-Gohan, why does it feel like we've been bouncing non-stop for two weeks?"
Your friend just groans in response, rubbing his aching legs. "I dunno, but it hurts." The two of you just lay on the ground, wriggling around like a couple of worms in pain as you grunt and complain.
"Tch, months worth of training and you two brats get worn out by....this thing." Piccolo chides the two of you, looking at the bounce house before frowning. "Pathetic."
"Hey, you try bouncing up and down non-stop and see how you feel mister Piccolo!" You shoot back at him, attempting to stand up only to fall down again. Ouch.
"Whatever, I'm leaving." Piccolo floats up into the air, stopping for a moment to turn and look to wards Raditz, who seems to be arguing with Kami about something. "Tch." And with that he flies off, his cool cape thing fluttering in the wind. You gotta' get one of those.
Krillin walks over, looking down at the two of you with a small smile. "Heh, tuckered yourselves out huh?"
"Yes." You both groan out.
Krillins smile turns devious. "Well then, guess you're too tired for some birthday cake then huh?"
>roll me some d50's to see if you can stand!

The big day. The first day of school. You take a deep breath as you sort out your dress uniform. Giving a speech to thousands of incoming freshmen sailors. It was making your skin crawl and break out into goosebumps. The thought of it was just scaring the hell out of you! Something could happen! What if your skirt suddenly blows up from the wind and you bare your panties to everyone!? And you can’t just wear shorts under your skirt either, that’s not proper dress code for the dress uniform!
You gasp. What if the boys come back and strafe the ceremony!? Everyone’s going to be covered in paint! And you’ll be painted like a Renaissance movement!
WHAT IF EVERYONE FINDS OUT YOU KISSED A BOY!? AAAAAHHHH
Winona stares at you, sitting on her bunk as you quietly panic in front of the mirror. She steps down and holds out her pet ball python Cuddles. “Want to pet Cuddles for good luck?”
> “Get your snake away from me! I’M PANICKING!”
> “… sure.”
> “… sure.”
You sigh, petting Cuddles’ head. Cuddles flicks his tongue out idly, recoiling slightly at your touch. Heh, little noodle. Winona smiles. “Cheer up, Ellie! I’m sure you’ll do fine out there! You got your lucky panties on?” You glare a little at her. “Come on! I’ll let you borrow mine!” She goes to grab the pair she’s wearing right now.
“NO, NO, I’M FINE!” you say quickly. Winona stops, pouting a little. “I’m feeling lucky enough.” You grin nervously, fluffing your hair a little. “I think- I think I feel just fine. I know what I want to do for a speech, I know to do it quickly and efficiently. There will be no mistakes today, no mistakes at all! I’m giving my speech in front of the Command tower, and I will do it in front of thousands of sailors, and it will be absolutely-“
Denise opens the door suddenly. “ELODIE!” You look to her, shocked. “Bad news!” Eh? She runs up to you. “My Kettenkrad isn’t working! It blew its engine last night while I was getting groceries!”
“Eh!?” B-… But your entire plan hinged on you managing to make it to the stage early! You could have ample time to prepare and psych yourself up! “But-“
“Don’t worry!” Denise grins. “I already have the perfect plan for you! I got a replacement!” Oh!? You step out the door with her.
To find your horse waiting for you, saddle and all.
You forgot you had a horse.
> Eh. You’ll just arrive a little later.
> If a horse is what it takes to be early, then so be it!
> “Denise, find me another mode of transport.”
This quest takes place in the DC Universe with characteristics mainly pulled from the animated TV series and films.
You are Battery, a teen recently brought in to HIVE Academy by Brother Blood after having seen your powers in action. Here you will learn how to successfully become a full-fledged villain, but you also hope to find some answers for your robotic origin. Recently you engaged in a fight with the Teen Titan's leader, Robin!
-15 Minute voting period after each post
-Some actions (typically combat choices against non-generic enemies and certain social situations) will require 3 D100 rolls, using the best of the 3 rolls for said action.
-Critical successes/failures are 100/1

MC Powers and Inventory
The whites of Robin's mask just narrow at your your gesture.
You both assume a fighting stance, your eyes carefully following the movements of Robin's hands.
You watch as one of his thumbs flicks across a pocket of his utility belt, opening it in preparation for your next move.
There's small jolts of power emanating from your arms as you clench your fists tighter, bracing yourslef.
You smirk under your helmet. You love this tension of combat, and you can't wait to trade blows with the leader of the Titans.
You're only a few steps away from being in striking distance, but maybe that's just what he wants.
You could also try to Bolt Blink behind him, but seeing how you just did that to Cyborg he's probably already gotten wise to it.
You also note that his staff his just a few feet away from you both. You figure you could try to use that against him as well.
You need to plan your next attack, and it needs to be one that can catch Batman's protege off guard.
A: Close the distance and pressure him with some jabs! Try to make him panic!
B: Fake him out with a low attack, then jump and elbow the top of his head!
C: Bolt Blink behind him and put him in a submission hold!
D: Go for his staff and swing away at him!
E: Wait to see what he does, then try to counter!
F: See if you can get some distance and call for some back up!

It's been a year, so... here we are!
This is not the start of the new story, but it's a sort of "setup" thread to decide how it will work. Details inside!

Fiction that got written in the meantime:
https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11569518/1/Cendrillon The first woman to die in the Millennial Kingdom was also the first to dare look beyond the horizon. This is her story.
https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12330438/1/Mercy What have the canon characters been up to through all this? (Never dreamed that a quest would get fanfic, but here it is).
https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11934303/1/Left-Beyond-The-Millennium-Countdown A companion reader to the Arc 1 quest log, which expands various aspects of the world.
On March 11th, 1998, the Rapture happened.
Exactly three and a half years later, Nicolae Carpathia, world controller, revealed himself as the Antichrist and was indwelled by Satan.
Another three and a half years later, right on schedule. Jesus came back in glory and vengeance to remake the world according to His will. Most accounts indicate that the Battle of Armageddon was a curb-stomp. The last prophecy in Revelation 20 shows that there will be a millennium of relative peace under the rule of the Ultimate Temple, after which Yahweh will once again destroy the world and call for the White Throne Judgement.
So that the last prophecy may be fulfilled, an ineffectual opposition, The Other Light, is formed.
A few years before the beginning of the Millennium's final century, TOL build a quasi-AI, the Omega, to coordinate their logistics efforts in building the Last Army.
A few years later, the Omega and their sysadmin split from TOL proper, and make their own gambit to cancel the apocalypse.
In the century that follows, the Omega go from a small, secretive cabal of sysadmins, engineers and assassins to an organization controlling the entirety of Northern Africa and the Pacific Coast, send probes to other planets, and even establish Lunar and Martian settlements.
This appears to be all for nothing, as the prophetic timeline is fixed: TOL conquers Gog and Magog on schedule, surrounds the Ultimate Temple on schedule, and gets curbstomped by a supernatural nova on schedule. As far as believers know, this is the end of the timeline; the White Throne Judgement happens on schedule, and then there is no schedule anymore, only eternity in heaven or hell.
Of course, the Omega's plan was not to win the final battle, but to turn it into a ruse to accomplish the real objective under the table.
When the Judgement was triggered, all human life perished, including the brave colonists on the UNS Reach, humanity's second (out of three) interstellar spaceship, bound for Alpha Centauri and about halfway there when the hammer drops.
All died. All are judged. All of this is made irrelevant as the Omega, themselves having acquired a soul after attaining true sentience, turn themselves into a logic bomb and delay the completion of the Judgement indefinitely by processing resource starvation.
A copy of the Omega kernel was sent to the Reach's tender. It takes years to reconstruct their system logs without causing the logic bomb to trigger. The excision forces the Omega into effective semi-retirement for yet another number of years, in which they serve as posthumanity's storehouse of knowledge.
Eventually, the system is brought back online to full power....
If people would like another go, I'm game for it. But I was more thinking sequel :)
In this kingdom building game you take on the role of a melancholic king who can only answer with YES or NO.
Sometimes you can overcome this limit in the forms of Royal Commands. Rule the kingdom and bring prosperity or ruin.
Each day you will have a couple of visitors with their requests, problems and you must sort them by a simple "yes" or "no" answer.
Please always roll a 1d100 along with your votes and some royal commands are requiring a dice roll as well. This will help me with the priorities.
> Case 1: Yes
> Case 2: Yes
> Case 3: No
> Royal Command: Gather Manage Taxes. Set taxes to High.
In this game you will have to manage 3 resources. Population, Happiness, Gold. Happiness limits your maximum pop.
Your starting and boring Royal Command is [Manage Taxes]. When usedpick one of these options:
-No taxes (Happiness grows by 1 for every 10 pop every day)
-Normal taxes (Deafult) (Every 5 pop generates 1 gold every day)
-High taxes (Every pop generates 2 gold but lose happiness for every pop that payed tax each day.)
Once you set your taxes you dont need to activate it each day unless you want to change it.
Every Day one Royal Command will be used (the one who rolled the highest)
(This is my first quest and I am ripping off a flash game, I cant draw either.)
Now tell us about yourself a bit, what kind of person is the king? Cheerful, Selfless or Wealthy? (Pick one)
And who is your most trusted ally?
- Shena the Advisor (Human). Pro: She passively grants you an extra case to solve each day. Con: She doesnt always have the best ideas.
- Riveti the Arch Mage (Human). Unlocks Royal Command: [Wild Magic Experiments]. Effect: Roll a 1d100, the possibilities are endless!
- Sigurd the Holy Knight (Human). Unlocks Royal Command: [Body Guard]. Effect: When used he will guard you from aggressors visiting your castle.
- Alfric the Military General (Midget Werewolf). He will passively train the citizens to raise militia. (5 pop every day)
- Elizabeth the Vampire (Undead). Unlocks Royal Command: [Destroy]. Effect: Target 1 pop within your domain and kill it. Sometimes she gets out of control.
- Molder the Investigator (Mold-man). Unlocks Royal Command: [Gather Intelligence]. Effect: Write in what do you want to investigate. Roll 1d100 to see how it goes.
- Maria the Secret Keeper (Eel-man). Unlocks Royal Command: [Conceal Chambers]. Effect: Nobody hears about your decisions or visitors on the same day you activated this R. Command.
Well, you've died.
A real shame, death is always sad, but you were so young, had so much life ahead of you.
Good thing I found you.
See, I need material. That material being souls, not blank slates, souls with experience, memories, context.
I make universes, I'm The Progenitor, it's what I do. And this latest one, young and glowing as it is needs Gods to rule it.
I've had it baking for about ten thousand years and it's time for a few pantheons to shake things up and lay them out.
What sort of God will you be?
1: A Celestial God. A mighty spirit capable of shaking heaven and earth with your miracles. Your power and might are titanic and nigh limitless, but manifesting a physical form requires great effort, and you'll find yourself shouldering the great burden of leading a pantheon through fair weather and foul.
Heavy is the head that wears the crown.
2: An Ethereal God. The most common form of deity. While naturally immaterial as the Celestial Gods are, you transition between planes of existence with far greater ease. This allows you to wield great power [though much less than a Celestial] while still frequenting the world to mess around with mortals on a whim.
It is good to be the king.
3: A Terrestrial God. As a Terrestrial God, you will be naturally material, making it easy to affect the world and allowing you to make your home alongside the humans. While your powers are less than the Ethereals, and minute compared to a Celestial, they are still more than enough to carve out kingdoms or lay waste to them.

God-Emperor is a go...
3 votes for our race, and I'll decide our place, though suggestions are valued.
So long as you don't go insects, I'm more than happy to continue the game for a good number of hours, and perhaps days after that.
In the far, far away land of Arizona... In the year 2035.... something incredible is happening...
The Pheonix is rising from the ashes and our young heroes, fresh out of Highschool, now face an even greater threat. College!
Meanwhile something else, perhaps even more sinister, is brewing deep in the heart of the lonely town of Pheonix, Arizona.

Ko-ma flies over and start checking out the College boys wallets for any excess cash she won't feel bad over taking while telling the saved Fairy, "Oh, you don't need to do anything for me.

You are a Queen Ant. Ready to start a new colony. This looks like a good place to start.

"Hrrrrrm, you lot seem to have quite the penchant for causing trouble." Havel grunts, his heavy armor creaking as he shifts uncomfortably in his chair. "Attacking people without warning in the middle of the city? And an Elven citizen at that?"
Currently, you and Morgan were sitting in the Monastery's main hall with Havel, after making your escape from the city and those suspicious Elves following the two of you.
"I made sure that it would be traced back to us." Morgan mumbles, her ears drooping.
"Who do you think is the first person everybody complains to every time an Elf so much as bruises their knee?" Havel sighs.
"You... you have a point." Morgan nods. "But they were following us and one of them made a move-"
"I never said you didn't do the right thing, but you should act more cautiously." Havel grumbles. "And you were supposed to be the one to keep your comrades honest."
"S-sorry." Morgan's ears droop even further, if that was possible.
