Here's a link to the old 8ch archive for the time being:
>/quests/ rises from the grave once more.
I'm very glad to see the board up and about again after 8chan's fall. I hope others learn of the boards existence and it gets back on its feet after so long in the ruins graveyard.
Originally I wanted to start a quest, but then I realized I have no great idea for a topic, so it pretty much died before I could even start it. If you or anyone else starts a quest here, I'll put this board on the webring, but right now it's just a dead board.
Why not just put it on the webring now so that it's less likely to be a dead board?
This. More exposure would mean a better chance of new posters here even if its a slight increase. Also gives a chance for someone interested in starting a quest as well.
Alright, I didn't want to clutter the webring with useless boards, but you convinced me. (It'll take something like 15-30 minutes to propagate)
>still no quests
Hey, questing boys, I know this board is practically empty, but I do know you guys come from the old /quest/ board over 8chan.
Would you like to join our virtual soccer competition? It's pretty easy, all you have to do is create a thread on the /icup/ board and come up with at least 16 player names you want to use to join.
So is the plan to sit and wait for someone to make one?
Well, if you don't like it, you can make one.
That could potentially draw more attention to this place existing, and there's probably enough content from /quests/'s past history to make a team from it, so that sounds like a good idea.
Who we got then?
/quest/-tan and these two come to mind.
Oh, and you could also put a questing beast on the team.
What's their names again?
Shame ddoles didnt draw anything of her
I tried to look at some archives, but it's hard to get references for characters when even the thumbnails have been scrubbed off. All I got saved locally is this pic of a nameless woman who I'm sure past the protagonist of a quest at some point.
Richard and Lisa Lisa. /quests/-tan is just /quests/-tan.
archive.vn has at least the thumbnails archived, but unfortunately it only has a few threads
And unlike /nep/ it didn't get restored on 8kunt so unless someone had that backed up locally, that content is gone.
Those few scraps at least allow us to salvage Bitrine the alchemist, Yurgwe "Yuyu" the soldier, and Jaurir the wizard, so thanks for the link!
found this on the booru
there's her too, but I don't remember what quest she was from.
Totally offtopic question, but it has been bugging me. How do people end up with posts where every file is called ClipboardImage.png?
Rinse and repeat.
There's all of this stuff, too.
The booru seems to say that the quest is named Dust and the girl's name is Ami. The guy seems to be Roland.
Why is almost everything here made by "WunderWulf"
Drawfags are unicorns to begin with, let alone on small boards like this one. And there didn't seem to be much of an effort to archive the pictures, so most artists' works are lost to time. WunderWulf probably got excepted because he was active on multiple boards, which might've boosted his popularity.
Maybe we can ask him if he's interested in doing a quest here.
I have drawings of one of a discontinued quest on the old /quests/ board called LACK OF LOVE. You can use the characters from there but I don't remember their names exactly. Here is the link to a download of it: https://litter.catbox.moe/trynae.7z
Sadly it will only last for up to three days from now. For whatever reason, normal catbox wouldn't give me a link every time I uploaded the game. So the temporary version will have to do for now. Also have some drawings of the some of the characters featured in there.
I made a word mistake in the spoiler, I meant file instead of games. Either way the file is there for now.
So do we have enough for a team then?
Afraid not. We need at least 16, and even with everyone from this thread and a couple more I found on the booru, I don't think we can make a full team. Doesn't help we got a few characters whose names are unknown as well.
One thing I did notice from the booru: some images apparently came from /v/ or /co/. Would we be willing to expand our potential roster to include characters from quests held on other boards? Or should we stick strictly to /quests/ originals and verify all characters adhere to this condition?
I'm pretty sure there was a skeleton quest
Richard and Lisa Lisa's quest was on /v/ wasn't it?
>Shinji and a satyr
I forget their names, but those were from a /monster/ cyoa.
Dumping that 7z here because catbox already expired
Sorry for triggering captcha
I like this grill
so no archive for this quest?
we probably should have kept one, dang.
There probably is, we just don't have the link. And the thumbnails most likely got removed too.
If we're accepting protagonists from non-/quests/ quests, I got (You) and Fugg the Lugg, both from /b/ quests.
I found some archives of old quests that died on the old /quests/ board when 8chan was alive. Perhaps you can use these characters here? Although only one has art of the main character.
The mosaic - http://archive.vn/oawtg
Spaceship Maid Quest - http://archive.vn/z6VY3
ECLIPSE - http://archive.vn/437Jk
Dumb Decent Quest (This one is a draw quest)- http://archive.vn/yixO6
Part 2 - archive.vn/0104w
Haemonculus Quest (This didn't make it far so I doubt it you can take characters from here as much as the others) - http://archive.vn/e3wYh
Hope this helps fill out the soccer team.
If there is any artfag here, we could have some banners. Unfortunately the banners I found in the archives all have a big ass 8ch logo on them, so I'd rather not use them here.
Banners must be 300x100px.
This is the limit of my graphics skills.
What are some notable characters from CYOA books? They could work as part of the icup team.
Plus there's also Camilla Cameltoegliacchi to put on the team now.
Not exactly in the same hour, but it looks like we have 2 active-ish quests. Hooray!
quest tan, its been a long time since i last saw you...
Can't believe I just discovered this place.
a super long time ago I was on the old /quest/ board on 8ch and actually ran a quest called Kindred Souls Quest but I felt I was spending too much time on it and had to focus on schooling so I shut down the quest and eventually forgot about the board as nothing happened there.
I also drew some fanart for another quest called Knight Quest as I liked his stuff. (last image)
Glad to see you guys are keeping the flame alive and I hope it goes well around here. The old /quests/ was comfy.
Do you have any archive of that?
We have a few archive.is links at >>49 plus the archive.org archives at >>17 but it's not easy to find anything there. We could create a thread if someone would sort these things out.
no but i have something that might be better. I saved the frames and some of the text.
I can post some if you like, what did you want them for?
Images are always good, I guess, but I doubt we will have a full team anytime soon.
I just don't want old quests to disappear from the internets, that's all.
Sure seems DEAD in here.
Hey guys, /icup/ here with a question on how we're going to handle the next iteration of the Infinity Cup ( https://anon.cafe/icup/ )
We're trying to poll whether certain boards are interested in playing in the cup, or if there's some specific team that you'd like to see play. If you want to, please answer or add your own answer to the poll in https://poal.me/6x3j1u
wew, I don't think there's enough life in here to answer that.
