Kalaris, I don't think it's a good idea to actively request donations. If you need plat items, ask the moment you need them. I've done a nonlinear quest before and it's all effort. Something you don't want to do is needlessly raise expectations, believe me on this. That Asian port city Hai Bei Harbor I showed you, have you ever attempted to press e in front of any NPC in that city? Do you realize I made the single largest quest in the game, with a two prong ending and over 20 ways to reach those two paths, on the budget of 2 link pad pairs and a keydoor? I made a nonlinear quest with over 4000 words of dialogue on every, and I mean, every NPC in the quest, without a set path and it was about connecting the dots later. Too many people openly request donations, and all those projects end up getting squeezed by expectations of people who expect only results. I don't mean to flaunt my ability here, I want to give you an idea of just how much is ahead of you. It's all effort, don't think alleviating cost will make the quest easier to construct. Everyone loves success until they know what it costs, and it takes quite a while before most people realise it isn't gold.
