Story Quest Directory

Fri Jan 1, 2016, 12:32 PM by SailorAlcyone:iconsailoralcyone:


Story Quests are Main Events converted to Quests after their initial run. They give newcomers and anyone who didn't have a chance previously to get in on the main story line and catch up to the others in their own time.

Rules:
1.) You MUST have a completed reference sheet submitted into the group before you may start any Story Quests
2.) These quests are intended to be done in separate pictures; do not combine the individual quests please!
3.) If the quest is a Combo quest it will be stated as such when posted
4.) All Quest Submissions must be at least flat colour and fully lined in order to earn points. WIPS and lineart will not be counted.
5.) All Quests MUST contain a written portion. 6-8 sentences that give us the basic beginning, middle and end will suffice, but don't let that stop you from writing more! We love to read!
5.) Pixel art and bases ARE allowed for Story Quests so long as proper credit is given and pixel art MUST be your own.
6.) Dollmakers and recolours are not allowed.

He can usually be found in the games rooms or lounging by the fireplace when not in his room or wandering the halls hitting on the girls.

:star:~Story Quest 7~:star:
"Attack! Jokers are Wild!"

Read here for Story Prompt: fav.me/da2dogo

Jun has received intel that one of your own has been attacked! The Trinity inform you that the Jokers who attacked before are now targeting another senshi! It seems they’ve located one in Australia and have drawn her out, but to what purpose, they’re not sure just yet. She appears to be the same one encountered by a small group during an initial recon mission! (Tech Saavy: fav.me/d97jabv ) They ask you to hurry there and help her before it’s too late. Jun has set up the coordinates for your brooches, you’ll appear directly in the concert hall. Your mission: Take on one or both of the Jokers and attempt to rescue your Senshi sister.

**Don’t worry about other’s entries and encounters, just have fun! For story purposes, all encounters are considered canon for your character.

Option 1
"Joker on High"
Take on one of the Jokers by yourself. Draw and write out an encounter with either Cassiterite Cockatrice or Bastinite Basilisk as you try to save the new Senshi.

No killing or extreme maiming, and there is a catch. It is a difficult battle, but unfortunately, they do escape, saved by the one you did not take on...taking Lapis Lazuli Mermaid with them!

Time Limit: None
Quest Reward: 1 Crystal Point

Option 2
Double Trouble
Pair up with another Crystal Animamate to take on BOTH of the Jokers at the same time. This is a collaborative effort, meaning you both must work together to write and draw your piece. We highly encourage you to pair up with someone your character hasn’t yet paired up with before, but it isn’t mandatory. We would like to see people step out of their comfort zones, though and work with someone new.

No killing or extreme maiming, and there is a catch. It is a difficult battle, but unfortunately, they do escape...taking Lapis Lazuli Mermaid with them!

Time Limit: None
Quest Reward: 1 Crystal Point

Time Limit: None

"While the Senshi's Away..."

Read Story Prompt here: fav.me/dblj0iy

Someone close to you, be it family, friend, or non-senshi lover, has a strange meeting with civilian you while they are out and about doing their daily business. But there's a catch. It's not really you! You're not even in the area when this meeting happens! They look like you, talk like you, and seem to know things that you would know, but you, yourself most certainly weren't there! Draw and write up a scene/conversation where "Other You" and your loved one interact. Your loved one cannot be a fellow senshi, but they can know of you being a senshi if you want.

Time Limit: None
Quest Reward: 1 Crystal Point

I'm still looking for someone to do the first quest with. Would anyone be willing to work on it with me?

RoyalRaven99 has an up-to-date list of those who have not completed it, found here: fav.me/dajvusw

Since not everyone reads the comments in that, I would suggest reaching out to several of them to see who is available and has the time. I know several on the list are on hiatus, so just poke at several to see who's open.

There are quite a few. You can see who HAS completed it in the relevant Quest folder here: crystalanimamates.deviantart.c… and compare with our Master List here: fav.me/d8npi5d

There isn't a list of who hasn't done it. If you like though, we can do up a poll asking who hasn't done it and maybe it'll help?

You can find the ones who HAVE done them all in the gallery too, we've conveniently broken down the events by name so it's easier to see who has and hasn't done them XD

crystalanimamates.deviantart.c…

I don't think I ever had a link to who hasn't done it in it's own journal. There was one COMMENT over in the Side Quests journal that had some people who hadn't done it, if that's what you're talking about.

maximum 4 paragraphs
Why do you limit the written parts? Four paragraphs seem to be rather short to me :-?
Reply
:iconsailoralcyone:
SailorAlcyone Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Most people are daunted by writing in general, so to some, 4 paragraphs seems like a lot. lol It's only a suggestion, but as Cheddar said, mostly so we can keep up with our end of things. Also, I've noticed that people will skip longer written works if that's all the see right away. I learned this with my own writing. With longer works, I usually post a link to the stash'd written file so people aren't bogged down by words immediately, and I put a general synopsis of the story in the main deviation that has the picture. That way, people who want to read will read, and those who just want to know the basics of what's happening can still know what's going on. With the new year, we will be talking over some of the rules and make some changes accordingly. And written works will definitely be on that list of things to review! In the meantime, don't let that stop you from writing more! I personally love to read up on characters!

Most people prefer to use visual storytelling to help their quests along. We Also put in a max amount so that we admins can read through it easier/faster to get everyone their proper points. :>

Though... how long is a paragraph? ^^; I'm not a native English speaker, so I think I have a different approach to formatting things :iconorzplz:

iCheddart Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
A paragraph (at least the ones that i learned in school haha) is about 5-7 sentences. I'm talking it over with :iconsailoralcyone: to see about putting in a few more written rewards for those who are more inclined to write ;>

Let us know if you have any more questions! :D

The initial Story Events themselves (the ones for the larger points) are closed as are any RP related things in those journals. They've moved here to Story Quests for people to do in their own time, for less points.
