You don't waste a MasterBall on a non-Legendary.
Zubat isn't rare.
Body Slam isn't that strong
You can't Fly behind Bill's house- he has no garden
You don't get Mew just for finishing the pokedex
There's no truck by the S.S. Anne in the real game
You don't waste slots by teaching HM's (or most of them, anyway) on your favorite pokemon
Team Rocket can't steal your pokemon and grunts are nothing to worry about
Hyper Beam isn't a dragon-type attack so it won't do extra damage against a Dragonite (who's also not a fire-type)
Raichu doesn't evolve
Holding or pressing buttons during capture attempts does nothing

Personally, I don't really mind them, but an image board doesn't strike me as the best place to run one.

Also, there's a shit ton of them, and when anyone thing grows so overwhelmingly popular that it spills out into everything else (such as 40k,MLP or Twilight) there's generally a feeling of discontent from people who keep feeling as though it's forced in their face.

Or vidya. Pretty much everything here is just a shitty alignment joke or some variation of HURF DURF, THE GIRL IS ACTUALLY A BOY, neither of which contributes to discussion of traditional games.

Long ass but great read about some fa/tg/uy trolling the shit out of a freeform RP site. There are four characters, him, his friend, the antagonist, and Goldenharl. This was the kind of freeform RP where you got stronger the longer you were on the site, so the antagonist and goldenharl, who both founded the thing, were stupid strong.

Bitches kept forgetting that you can't resist raw spirit.
Bitches kept forgetting that you can't stop Goldenharl, because fuck you, he's Goldenharl.

Generals got their own awful containment board in /vg/ where people jerk each other off and pretend 4chan is an irc network so why can't quest threads get their own board for the same shit?

It's been said multiple times in this thread, /tg/ is FOR gamers to talk ABOUT games. Generals are a way for people to talk about games. Quest Threads are people trying to play games on /tg/, and it just doesn't work.

I don't really see how this holds water, to be honest. "It's a place to talk about x" does not equate to "a place to do x".

And even ignoring that, as it stands, you're just making questfags look bad, by attacking the conclusion other people have drawn rather than their reasoning, and without providing any reasoning in support

There CAN be interesting things done in a quest thread, that doesn't mean the breed as a whole has any value on /tg/. If you play a LARP like the one where you are stones, that can generate some "fascinating explorations".

Which really doesn't address the issue expressed in those posts - that an image board is a kinda shit place to have a serious, persistent study or discussion of any given topic, and is an inherently flawed medium through which to do so. There are more suitable formats in which this can be achieved.

It also does nothing to oppose the notion that there are 'too many'. Just as /tg/ is likely to complain about the number of 40k threads at a time, or the franchise spilling out into different and unrelated topics of discussion. so to should it be expected that quest threads would receive much the same treatment.

If they are truly 'metadiscussions' of the genre, then most outsiders would feel the need to ask what topics, after such length and variety of the discussion, have been left untouched, and how much of this has been redundant retreading of old ground?

Perhaps they're more enriching than yet another trap joke - but the trap joke isn't meant to stick around, hence why it hasn't been made in a more permanent format. The same can not be said for quests.

Quest threads have a few fags who keep each one alive; it's just that different quests appeal to different people, so there are multiple quests constantly running.

As for why other threads don't take off: I dunno. Most podcast threads don't go anywhere, but some do. Most alternate history WH40K threads get a ton of replies, but some don't. The board is unpredictable, because people who like something might not see it, and the thread fades into obscurity.

You realize this can be said about literally every kind of thread on /tg/ and 4chan in general, right? Besides, one of the very ones you mentioned actually has really fascinating worldbuilding and combat mechanics that I would love to see translated into a proper PnP game.

Furthermore, lumping Quests and CYOAs into the same category is pretty asinine since they are nothing alike. In fact, CYOAs are more like filename threads than quests.

They wanted armies to have a reason to exist, and for low level monsters to be useable at high levels. Thus, bounded accuracy. One thing that was discussed was an army of peasant archers, because if you have a bazillion of them you can kill anything except an army of a gorillion peasants.

>If everyone was a namefag, then there'd be nothing but circlejerks.

Have you ever been on a forum? Some people get popular, most don't. People will like certain other people no matter what, anon, if they identify themselves. Not every non-4chan forum is endless circlejerking around the same people, they still do have actual discussions between the jerk sessions(much like on 4chan). Saying that going to a PBP forum will prevent you from playing by post is asinine.

>>38295850
>An anonymous imageboard is actually the ideal place to play Everyone Is John and have zero personal bias towards input givers

Then go to gamegrene or some other place that lets you play anonymously, or insist that everyone start new accounts for your Everyone is John threads while understanding that persistent characters are at the heart of most quests, and they'll be better supported by consistent accounts instead of the "Twitch Plays Pokemon" nonsense in /tg/ quests.

Which is magnified within a specific game as the smaller population (Compared to the forum as a whole) is much, much more likely to become insular and exclusive when they all recognize and are at least somewhat aware of each other as individuals. Just like a thread full of namefags.

Correction: ONE persistent character played by a host of anons is at the heart of most quests. Namefags would destroy that setup.

Where would be better? I disagree with >>38296389, as there isnt anything with the playerbase, attitude, anonymity or lack of mod bullshit that /tg/ has. The closest runner-up is anonkun, and its interface is shit.

>>38296596
Yes the closest thing to a good site for Quests is Akun. Devs over there have been doing a good job at updating the interface. However it doesnt change that the chat system sucks complete balls for quests. With suptg and 4chan, you can go back and read old conversations or ideas the QM or players have had.

It's way easy to do on anonkun. Reading old quests is in general better on anonkun, surprised that there are people who don't think so.

thats not the problem with anonkun, thats actually a point in its favour, i just dont like the site format. between eye-bleeding white spaces, errors out the butt and the chat system which devkun refuses to put out of its misery, it has its share of sacred cows.
