PONY'S QUEST Inept GM!5M5mKL2u3w 2663405[Last 50 Posts]

Welcome to yet another fucking CYOA!

Apologies in advance if this is the wrong board, but /site/ gave conflicting answers; a quick look around makes me think this board is the one where my particular brand of game will work best. Maybe.

What do I mean by 'my particular brand?' Well, Pony's Quest is not writing-centric due to the fact that I am a very poor writer. Instead, I put together images with custom sprites to show how the story is progressing. How the story progresses, as you might have guessed, is up to you... except during cutscenes. Due to something sufficiently awesome happening, or simply due to one picture not being enough to smoothly represent what you've commanded, there will be times when I post multiple pictures in a row and your commands will do nothing. I will preface such events whenever I can and I will try to avoid railroading, but this might not always be possible.

The other reason I came here instead of, say, /anon/ is because PQ is typically pretty work-safe. I'm not saying nothing mature ever happens; I'm just being honest. Even if something NC-17 does happen, tiny sprites aren't very expressive to begin with.

So, how to play PQ? Well, there's not really any rules - just a few general guidelines:

1. To progress the story, just give a command in your post and, if others agree with you (or if nobody else is around), it'll be done in the next pic, at which point the cycle continues. Commands should be kept simple, which basically just means 'Please don't make an entire paragraph outlining your four-point battle strategy against a few timberwolves."

2. Speaking of battle, when you are fighting enemies, I'll be using a D6 to determine how well you do. This is mostly to balance OP characters like Twilight and Rainbow Dash, who can pretty much one-shot or instantly escape from even boss-level threats with ease. The higher the roll, the better your command will turn out.

3. As you may have guessed by the name and artstyle, PQ is inspired by old Sierra-type adventure games like the King's Quest series. This means that, while the story won't be linear, making the wrong command will likely get you hurt or killed, typically in a manner you might deem 'unfair.' For example, a somewhat famous cause of death in the first PQ from back on /mlp/ was teleporting onto a cloud as Twilight... and promptly falling through the cloud and snapping her neck. No health bar, no do-over, instant death. Depending on the quest, death may be negligible, reversible, or permanent; I'll let you know early on which is the case, depending upon the story.


This is a CYOA that uses (not terrible) MSPaint drawfaggotry instead of writefaggotry and that progresses via democratic suggestion instead of gets or whatever other traditional -chan methods there are.

In the next post, I'll summarize the different stories you can pick from. Yes, you literally choose your own adventure, before the game even begins.

The first quest follows Spike, who has been cast into Tartarus for a crime he swears he didn't commit. This soon turns out to be the least of his problems; can he fight his way out of the dismal underworld?

The second quest follows the Cutie Mark Crusaders, who make an unexpected discovery that leads them halfway across Equestria and to a mysterious island that hides many secrets... and many dangers...

The third quest follows Twilight Sparkle through a post-apocalyptic Equestria ravaged by mysterious beings from another world. With the Royal Sisters gone, it's up to Twilight to reunite with her friends and use the Elements of Harmony in a whole new way to liberate Equestria.

The fourth and final quest follows Pinkie Pie, who is meeting with her friends to celebrate a very rare and special occasion... until it's spoiled by her friends being abducted by strange robed ponies who have ALSO been anticipating the event...

I don't know how active this place is, but I'm around pretty often, so I guess we'll just get started as soon as a few people vote on the quest they want to embark on, however long that takes.

I look forward to working with you, mlpchan.

Oh wow this place is much more alive than I expected. How nice! Well, the people have spoken.

Pinkie Quest it is! Here's some base information to get you all started.


Mid-Late S4


You are Pinkie Pie - party pony extraordinaire - and you have just received a letter from Twilight. She said she has something very exciting to tell you and the rest of the mane six: something about an "exceedingly rare astronomical event," whatever that is... She'd like to talk to you all about it at the library ASAP.


1 letter from Twilight



This is where your quest begins.

You CAN make super-short Zork commands, but it's certainly not necessary. The game would take forever if everyone did that. Besides, it's more fun when you guys have stuff to discuss, puzzles to solve, etc..

These were already done from when I hosted these games on /mlp/, but depending on where you go and who you meet, I might need new ones. Don't worry, they don't take very long - usually just a few minutes for a new sprite and maybe a half an hour to an hour for a detailed background.

As I said in the OP, PQ is inspired by old Sierra-type adventure games like the King's Quest series. If you do something stupid, you will probably die. If you don't do something stupid, you still might die. So, it's best to stay on your toes and keep a close on your surroundings for useful items... or deadly traps.

We could have gotten stuck in the chimney and missed Twilight's event. That would have been a good game over screen.

I remember a game from Sierra called Willy Beamish where you played a grade schooler and there were plenty of game overs, but he didn't die. He'd get sent to military school or lose his game tournament because he didn't put peroxide on his thumb two days earlier, or be disqualified for feeding his frog caffeine, but he didn't die. Death isn't the only answer.

If we spot an immediate threat, hide behind this spike pillar, before the bridge and then avoid unknown entity by passing by.

If no immediate threat, start massaging your leg and feet for a good solid 10 minutes and then stretch your muscle for a good 7 minutes time spent to avoid injury if efforts are required in a short amount of time before attempting this journey, I think we might have a good road ahead of us.

Maybe it's a dream. Maybe we could call to Princess Luna for help. But that might attract predators, and we have no aliens to fight them with. What we need is some paper to send a message to Twilight. The bridge seems to obvious; let's ignore it. Maybe there's something in the ground... Want to dig? Spike is a good digger.

Is it climbable ? Continue the fire breath until the electric is discharged or something then climb up the pillar when it's electric property buzz off.

At first glance, I thought we could side side that pillar but I guess the perspective given led me to a false assumption.

Maybe if we aim up we can stop the source of the force field. See how it stops in the ground but continues up off-screen? It's source must be above us.

At least we're safe in here. Why are we trying to escape? Only death awaits us out there.

You know, can I just mention something... It's unrelated to the game. So Tartarus is a place where evil creatures are imprisoned to be guarded by Cerberus, right?

I'm so sorry that everything went to shit. Over and over again.

Anyway, enough moping. We don't have a vote yet, but I should probably address this:

>We should probobly check our stats before we start doing stuff.

If you're hoping for super-specific tabletop game stats, I'm afraid I don't have any. The combat roll, as I said in the OP, is mostly for balancing reasons: It'd be pretty stupid to introduce a major enemy and then you just do something like >>2964434 and it's dead in one move. But on the other hand, even just 2 or 3 low rolls could potentially cost you your life, even against a minor enemy. So, I might adjust the number of sides/rolls depending on how this fight goes.

If you don't mind something more vague, though, I'd imagine Spike's stat distribution to be something like this:


Average. He's a heavy lifter for such a little guy, but none of his feats stand out that much compared to the ponies around him. Furthermore, his offensive prowess in a one-on-one fight is low.


Above average. When it comes to book smarts and certain social cues, he's as dumb as a brick due to his young age. However, he has many political connections despite his age, and several seasons of playing the sane man has given him a comparatively high level of foresight and perception.


Low. Spike is small and young, so he has low HP and tires out quickly. Yes, he can handle a lot of menial labor, but he has to pace himself and take frequent nap/snack breaks, or he'll wear out.


Average. His stubby legs and low stamina mean he's not too fast, but he can still keep pace with a herd of full-grown ponies when he has to. He's also been shown to be quite agile, dodging groups of mooks and maneuvering through volatile landscapes on several occasions.

Outstanding. Not only is Spike's body able to withstand blunt force and sharp objects with ease, he is apparently heatproof enough to be submerged in (and swallow) lava without any ill effects. However, falling a great distance is implied to be sufficient enough to kill him, so it is likely that under his armor-like scales, he's just as squishy as everyone else.


Above average. Spike's most obvious trick is his fire breath, which can send/receive messages via magic and has also been used as a weapon. It doesn't seem to be very strong, but being able to continuously produce even small jets of fire can be quite useful - and dangerous.


Terrible. Spike is basically the chew toy of the series. If the powers that be in Equestria can hurt or emasculate him for a cheap laugh, or if they can make him look like an idiot in front of his friends, love interest, or a whole stadium full of ponies, they will do so. This isn't to say that Spike CAN'T get lucky, or triumph over hardship. He just has a much worse track record of doing so than most of his friends.

Awesome eel 2971518

These are nice states, I would add another special, he can eat solid gems/rocks and he is technically very hard to starve. Siege won't work as he will simply eat rock.

Nice stats, I'm assuming these are in comparison to a typical pony.

Inept GM!SF8dPAJKnY 2974042

Correct. By the metric I'm using, Spike is for instance smarter than the average background pony (who seem to be pretty dumb and panicky as a whole). Again, though, none of it is set in stone - the stats I gave are just a rough guide I'm going by because they seem to line up with Spike's canonical abilities.

Also, we seem to be at a bit of a standstill, so I'm going to roll for this.

If even, >>2968552.
If odd, >>2966723.

For your sakes, I'm hoping for even.

our autosage is different.

what are you hoping to achieve by returning to where we had just moments ago left?
I could see waiting for some time to pass and then returning in speculation of the bird(?) leaving in search of substance.
however I suppose that creature may have chosen the exact moment when spike had left the area to go in search of food.
either way your suggestion perplexes me.

In Sierra quest games, when you want time to advance like that, you leave the screen and come back. For example, the Witch in King's Quest 1. Or maybe the Boogeyman in King's Quest 7. Dracula in King's Quest 2. Trust me. This is how it's done.

Or, you could vote for something else. I mean, the only vote right now is mine. It would take one vote to tie me and two to end my nonsense. But hey, if I need to play this game by myself, so be it. You all got my Pinkie killed off anyways.

Inept GM!SF8dPAJKnY 3075191

>Maybe I'm not understanding the system here

What's there to understand? It's a CYOA modelled after old point-and-click games. In order to proceed, you need to solve what I'll generously refer to as puzzles. This can be done by talking to NPC's, using the items you find, and battling enemies. If you get stuck, it's usually because you failed to either find something or explore somewhere.

Bear in mind that, in some point-and-click games, these conventions are taken to absurd lengths: Not only do you oftentimes have to use the items you find in incredibly obtuse ways (like killing a Yeti by throwing a pie at it... while you have a hammer and a magic wand in your inventory), you can also easily find yourself in an unwinnable situation by, say, missing a vital item and not realizing it until you're trapped hours later. Pony's Quest will NOT do either of these, so don't worry too much. The only way to really fuck up is to do something incredibly stupid like shoving your face up a fucking chimney, Sweetie.

I say a lot of things. It's my own special blend of wisdom, humor and nonsense, all rolled into one. I'm an excellent advisor, yet probably not who you'd want in the driver's seat. We seem to be set to nonsense at the moment, though I really want the purply, so I'm hoping that vulture will fly away if we wait behind that tree. I'm sure there's a whole world of possibilities two screens to the right, but no one wants to go this way, so we're doing this instead. If it doesn't work, my next ideas are "Tunnel under the nest" and "Burn down tree, push flaming log down hill" in that order.

Apply my plan.
Snatch a twig, hide behind the tree, burn the twig, throw it on the bird nest.

A.1 The bird retaliate, use the tree branches to annoy the hell out of the flying foe while spamming fire breath at it.

A.2 The bird flee, keep another twig/branches burning while approaching the nest just in case it is coming back due to a fake retreat. Pyromania is our best tool ability. Fire/lava cannot harm us.

How does it react ? It looks pissed, it's wide open elsewhere, the tree for now is the only viable cover, forcing it into our fire breath range while it cannot fly properly to attack us due to branches of the tree. Maybe make the fire bigger with more twigs/branches to ensure the bird nest catches on fire ?

We tried at the prison things, the soil seems different here it could work but we're not a diamond dog nor do we have this digging skill, also, it require engineering knowledge and the tunnel would probably collapse on us, resulting in death by suffocation.

Could work, but we are the purple lever thing might fall off. We combine the digging under the tree to make it lose it's foundation a bit, burn it with our fire breath and then push it on the bird nest ?

Quest games are about finding the right key for the right hole. That purply is probably a key of some sort (metaphorically). Now we're attempting to determine which key the OP wants us to still in this bird's hole. It is possible we do not have it yet. It is possible we do. We have attempted keys: leave and come back, sneak up, throw burning twig, dig.

I would like to again mention the bird is now aware of us. This is usually a sign that we should leave or we will be killed again.

Bridge is missing crank handle, bird has crank handle. Something in the hut can probably get the bird to piss off.

If the bird flips its shit maybe we can hide in the hut? Like, if we set its nest on fire, that could make it leave... but maybe not before raging out and trying to kill Spike. So... if a viable "ruin-the-nest" strategy manifests, maybe we can shelter in the hut until the bird gives up on vengeance.

Interesting question. It actually depends on the quest. For instance, in most quests (including Spike's Inferno and Ponkquest), you guys are conflicting aspects of the main character's personality; in The Secret of Zonkey Island, it's the same sort of idea, but spread across the three CMC's, so it flows a bit better (and opens opportunities for conflicts within the party). However, in Twilight's quest (affectionate surname: Gurrein Nagann), it's an actual plot point that you guys are something more than just schizophrenia and, in fact, are actually strengthening your party by interacting with them.

It seems we have two immediate option, hide in that little building and close the door with the risk of siege and 'starvation' from the bird presence or quickly cross the bridge. I'm assuming that the bird want that crank back for his nest do to it's possessive nature.

Hiding may avoid getting us killed but it might recreate the situation we previously were in as the bird might snatch the crank again.

I'd say we cross it, burn the boots and hold it in our hand for a defensive purpose if necessary. We cannot be harmed by fire/lava, might as well make the most use of it. Remove boots cords thingy before burning the boots.

No consensus yet, but since I'm here, I have a bit of an announcement:

This Saturday (March 7) is the two-year anniversary of Pony's Quest. In recognition of that, I'd like to do something special. So, I'm going to be spending the entire day running a brand-new, never-before-seen quest on 4chan's /mlp/.

No, I'm not abandoning you guys, but this board is very slow compared to /mlp/, so a celebration here wouldn't really have the same amount of participation that I'd like for a big all-day event to have. Besides, for better or worse, /mlp/ is where Pony's Quest was born; I can't just ignore that.

That being said, if any of you guys want to participate, you're certainly welcome to - that's why I'm giving you a heads-up now. The thread will be posted on Saturday at around 1pm EST and will run until I go to bed at some absurd hour on Sunday night-morning. I won't have my trip on since it might bring up some bad memories; if the day goes well enough to warrant future installments and if nobody recognizes my artstyle by some fluke, I might bring it up, but for the time being I'd appreciate if we could keep that on the down-low. >inb4 Streisand effect

Once more, I'm not leaving this board. I'll be here to check on this quest a few times through the day like usual, and even if the /mlp/ thread goes well and they want me to make more, I doubt it'll be something I do as frequently as I used to. So don't worry.

I hope Saturday goes well and that at least some of you guys can be a part of it!

The blood trail left by the pony's corpse was to the right of it, so it must have flown from the right and slid down to the left. Be careful in this wind. Is it changing speed, or is it pretty much constant?

The only thing we can do in this scene is to attempt to close in the bridge or down. I don't think he has the strength to move the tree anyways to use it's weight to close down the bridge permanently. Maybe the wind will raise up the bridge in time ?

Look at what is 'under' the bridge.

I see no obvious path forward, beyond attempting to climb the windy hill. That's my only vote/suggestion, but it's as liable to be the answer as whatever you're doing to that poor dead horse.

This is the part of quest games where we get stuck. The path forward is no longer obvious and we must try random things until we find what the author wants of us. I'm reminded of the time I needed to apply maple syrup to a piece of tape, then attach it to a hole in a fence. That way, when I shot the stray cat with the water bottle, some of his fur would tare off on the tape as he ran through the hole and I would be able to wear it as a fake mustache.
