Quests

Summary of DM run quests


 

  • Packrat Quest [BETA, revision 1]
    The objective of this quest is to obtain items, in the amount specified by the DM and be the first one to turn them in and collect the reward specified by the DM.
    • For instance: "Collect 12 goblin heads for a Sword +2"
      • Players involved will then need to collect 12 goblins heads and be the first to drop them in front of the DM, at the location specified by the DM
    • The reward will reflect the difficulty of the items collected and the number of items that need to be collected
      • The reward will also depend on the number of players involved
    • Why is it called "Packrat" ?
      • Some of the quest items might be things just sitting in your apartment...
    • All server rules will be enforced during the quest

Note to DM's:

  • When announcing quests on the chat or shout channel, add [QUEST] to the start of your message
    • 'shout [QUEST] Packrat quest in 10 minutes!
  • When talking to players to specify the collected items, add [QUEST] to the start of your message
    • 'say [QUEST] Collect 12 goblin heads for a Sword +2... GO!!
    • When using normal chat or talking, there's no need to add [QUEST] to the front of your message
  • Do not use the shout channel to announce the collection items, make sure everyone starts from the same location with the same information
  • For the first trial, I used the Scorn City Hall as the start location. No problems were encountered.
Examples Used:
  • Collect 21 goblin heads for 1 permanent stat potion of your choice
  • Collect 20 cursed items (any cursed items) for 1 permanent stat potion of your choice
  • Collect 200 arrows (not bolts) for the girdle of fighting

 

  • Team Arena Wars [Beta, Revision 3]
    The objective of this quest is for one team to 1.) obtain the most PK's in a specified time frame or 2.) to obtain a specified number of opposing team PK's with or without a time limit.
    • The reward will depend on the number of players and the number of teams involved in the quest.
    • Details:
      • After teams are sort out, players will be summoned to various locations within the Scorn Arena and behind Earth Walls
        • When the DM gives the signal - hack your way out of the Earth Walls and find our opposing team
      • Teammates PKing each other, for whatever reason, will count as a one PK deduction for your team
        • PK totals will be tallied from the PK messages generated during the text (severed fingers will not be counted)
      • When you are PK'd:
        • Tell the active quest DM "Summon Me" and you will be teleported to a random location in the Arena
    • The Quest DM reserves the right to restrict or limit the use of any item, spell, and/or ability
      • Failure to comply will result in ejection from the Quest and/or jail time
    • All server rules will be enforced during the quest

Note to DM's:

    • The reward will depend on the number of players and the respective level of the participants
    • Details:

        • When the DM gives the signal - hack your way out of the Earth Walls and find our opponents
      • Players that accidently kill themselves during the quest will receive a one PK deduction

Note to DM's:

  • Bind or hot key the summoning of players
  • Use the hide command or make sure you are invisible during the quest
    • We don't want players distracted by you or trying to PK you!
  • Try not to summon a recently PK'd player next to another player
    • Try to summon them to a somewhat safe spot to give them a chance
  • Running the quest with a set number of PKs as the end goal will require additional DM help
    • Summoning PK'd players and counting the number of PK's can be very difficult =P
  • If the quest has a time limit, make sure to let the participants know at regular intervals (ex: every 30 seconds or every 60 seconds, etc.)
