KeenQuest

Post by Coyotzin »

The KeenQuest Dropdown has changed hands!

The old dropdown located at

http://savingtaern.keenspace.com/keenquest.html

is still operational but will no longer be updated. Instead, the new home for KeenQuest is located at:

http://nahast.keenspace.com/keenquest.html

In the following days, I will be contacting the members of the old dropdown and will be cutting down comics that are not active or whose authors are no longer interested. Also, starting today, I'll be taking new applications for signup to the new dropdown.

To have your comic included on this list, it must have at least one major character actively on a quest. It should be their main driving force, and should be something specific such as a seeking a sword, fame, love, honour, freedom, a good pizza, the protection of something, etc.

To sign up include the following:
Author's Name
Comic Name
URL
Banner URL (optional, banner size is 200x40 or smaller, under 5K size).

I will look at your comic and post if you're accepted or not (and why); once you're in, add the following code to your site.

<script language="javascript" src="http://nahast.keenspace.com/keenquest.js"></script>

And that's all :)

What about if the quest hasn't been fully revealed yet?

Because the true point of VC is gonna be revealed in this chapter that I'm just starting, or the one after that...

Quests are not exclusive of fantasy :) (note that Star Wars is half fantasy itself, anyway ;) ). So, you're in, Gloria ;D

And I need an URL to check out VC, OnyxSerpent; I'm not that much of a regular on the forums and my mind has a lot of information juggling right now to try and remember it :)

The quest doesn't have to be overly explicit or world-changing. As long as one or more characters is actively making the effort to reach a goal, that's a quest.

I'd like to join at some point, though not yet. I'd like to suggest you add to your "form" the reason someone thinks they should be added (or just come out and ask what the quest is), and what the person's blurb should be for the site. For an example, check the first post of the keenelven joinage thread

go to any keenelven bearing page (okay, try http://theelven.com/keenelven ) and choose "join" from the dropdown.

Just some advice.

I just started the comic a little while ago, so I'm still in the introductory phase. The quest part of the comic should be coming up shortly (checks notes) . . . I've got about four more strips in the current story arc before it's introduced, but there will be a blurb about the quest on the "Comic Info" page by the end of today.

In any case, it's a "holy" quest that involves five of the characters having to escort the sixth, a crazy god, to an undisclosed location for an undisclosed purpose

I might get into this. My main character, Orlando, has made it his quest to be recognised as a full fledged superhero, though this will usually only be a sideplot whilst everyone else in the strip is doing whatever. Do I still qualify?

(I'm redesigning my site soon so it'll take a while before I get the necessary code working. Also, I don't have the faintest notion about banners. Can I get back to you on that?)

Fairy Trash added.

Sorry, Michael, but Orlando's goal does not exactly qualify as a quest, not only because it's only a subplot in your story, but also because that's a vague goal that's not clear how it will be reached, rather than a quest (which may have vague objectives or vague methods, but not both).

About describing what the quest is... well, the comic or its FAQ, notes, whatever should speak for itself; if the quest is not yet apparent, I expect the author to say what it is when asking to join.

War of Winds looking to join:

Author's Name: Kez Howard
Comic Name: The War of Winds

Banner URL: http://guide.keenspace.com/images/banners/4051.gif

There is much questing indeed, for various goals: redemption, revenge ...fun. Still on the prologue though, so the character doesn't know he's going on a quest yet. Also I just uploaded the banner, so I don't know if Butch has it up yet.

The two main characters will leave on their quest to discover why humans are disappearing on an approximate date of mid-April. It's all leading up to that, but it's taking a while.
