14.1 Quests and Questing
(See HELP NEWBIE QUESTS, HELP QUEST LOG) In Achaea we have many types of quests, nearly all of which involve denizens (a.k.a. mobs or NPCs). Quests may be simple (locating and delivering an item) or quite complex (with many steps, puzzles, etc., that might take days or weeks to complete). They are numerous and may be found all over the world. The most basic quests, such as those found in adventurer cities and newbie areas, are simple to discover and relatively easy to complete. Simply GREET the denizens you meet, or say something such as "have any quests for me?" and you will often be offered a quest. When you accept (by answering in the affirmative, whether a spoken word or an emote), it will be added to your quest log (see HELP QUEST LOG). Do as you have been instructed, and you will gain a reward in the form of experience and/or gold! As you progress in Achaea, quests may become more difficult to discover. You will need to look for clues in what denizens have to say, and even carry on conversations with them before they will offer you a quest. Many denizens have multiple things to say, so greeting them multiple times may be useful. Other clues might be found in journals or books or other writings that you can READ. Read everything carefully: the appearance of each room you enter, the descriptions of the denizens you meet, and the written texts in books or journals you may happen across in your adventures. If part of a quest involves giving an item to an denizen, you have but to give the item to it, and the denizen will then respond in a manner it deems appropriate. Occasionally, of course, this may not be quite the manner you hoped for, but this might simply be the result of the denizen being a bit grouchy today. Limitations on Quests --------------------- Quests are for individuals or groups to challenge and to attempt to overcome. The answers are not for sharing, buying, or selling. If you do this, you may lose rolepoints, market privileges, your voice, or even your life. The exception to this is newbie quests. Newbie quest information is already given out in HELP NEWBIE QUESTS and is not restricted as with other types of quest. (See HELP NEWBIE QUESTS, HELP QUEST LOG)
