    As we don't have a thread only for quests, I thought that it would be a good idea to create one.

    Quests are a bit different from normal stories, but there are quests that tell rather engaging stories nonetheless, even if the format takes a bit of time to get used to.

    So, if you know such a quest, share it! :D

    I'll start:

    Quest Name: Circle no longer; SB in B5
    Setting: Babylon 5

    They've recently become my fad, so I have gone through some. It was the first one in your list, originally linked by Roarian, that got me started. This is gonna be quite a list so I would just recommend you read a couple of chapters and drop it if you don't like them. The first couple posts should have an adequate summary.

    Note: This is meant to be a dice quest, but it becomes pretty obvious that the author rerolls quite frequently, he may have stopped now but that seems to only be because the bonus's have gotten sufficiently large. The story is still quite enjoyable.

    Summary: Players control an Elector Count (and his heirs) from the warhammer fantasy setting. Different in that it's inspired by a universe more than a story, but retains the humour and feel of the canon.

    Yeah. So far I'll say I haven't been impressed with many of the other ASOIAF character quests that have sprung up.

    A guy named thagguy had a Robert Baratheon Quest a while back that was good, but I think its dead now. As for a Rec.

    I wasn't a particularly huge fan of how the brothers and sisters were left up to a dice roll.

    Stannis and Renly should be there dammit.

    Well, Stannis is there now. And there've been some pretty awesome moments in the quest.

    I've read it but to me it seems like the author is half-arsing it. In the first chapter stats were distributed, and until chapter 95 they weren't even defined. They are still pretty meaningless as it doesn't tell us their effect on game mechanics. Then there are the numerous questions asked to the author that are responded with: "maybe", "I don't know", "it depends" even though they are logical to ask.

    It also has a case of one person makes a plan and no one else even tries leading to a monopolization where as other threads have multi-votes and greater community feedback in general.

    I asked Hash about it, and he got the idea from that quest, and wanting to see it executed better.
