    Speaking of quests and some being so controversial or just outright harmful, I had a few ideas? This is specifically for Project Soulforge and Tainted Broadcast Centre. As they are now, only one org benefits and everyone else suffers, hence why they haven't been done in...how many years? (Actual question). Instead can we make it that the person who completes the quest decides who is effected? We have the tech required in quests like Stewartsville already to recognize specific words. So it could come down to this:

    Quest NPC: Who would you like to punish?
    Player: Celest
    Quest NPC: Any other you would like to punish?
    Player: No
    Quest NPC: Very well, Celest will be punished.

    Honestly could just make it list the table values that were added by the player like it already does, again, in Stewartsville to solve the murder and recap. Applying that tech to these controversial quests might actually spike their use. If Magnagora decided to complete Soulforge and keep Serenwilde and Hallifax clear, they're no longer upsetting allies. I personally believe giving that selection of which orgs get punished by the quest will motivate more players to do these.

    I did TBC about a year ago and took it down immediately. Well, Taevyn was on me in 12s and after he hit me a bit he helped me take it down as I think you need someone from a different org.

    Targeting only orgs you're at war with would certainly remove some of the tensions.

    Any chance we can get Krik Worntail's quest to repair Mahalla's organ added to the quest system?  Some of the other Voice quests are, but that one isn't.  I think Jagrerox's is missing as well.

    Jagerox's exists, it's BLASTEDLANDS_DIG

    Not sure if this is still active, but I thought I'd mention my thoughts on the few quests I know inside and out. To wit: TOSHA_PILGRIM requires the same amount of bashing and token distributing as TOSHA, but instead of heading in to the spirit realm for more bashing, you have to successfully influence at least 40 monks with the appropriate kind of influencing, then get their little idols to the spirit masters, then hunt down the bloodthirsty pilgrim. Personally, I find that to be more work than the original honors quest. It's a small thing, but it seems like the quest ranking for those two should be swapped, and the TOSHA_PILGRIM quest should give an honors line.  o:)

    I think TOSHA_PILGRIM's ranking is reduced somewhat to reflect the fact you can stack the quests - doing the pilgrim quest doesn't prevent you from doing the Pits. You can do the pits immediately after, in fact. That said, I'd agree the pilgrim is ultimately more work (especially when monks start going back to grey robes before their egos reset, forcing you to analyze each before bestowing tokens or getting more corpses for new tokens). So swapping their rankings sounds pretty reasonable.

    Only you know my pain.  :dizzy:

    Would it be possible to have the mobs for the FROSTICIA quest tweaked some? Dropping two more snow kids in the area would be a huge help! Inflating the quest's difficulty via long timers/not enough mobs is kind of a bummer :(

    Any chance the Saving/Slaying Aestra quests can get added to the quest system?

    There's a chance of adding all quests to the system as it is the goal of this project. It's just all about finding the time. :/ I am planning, fingers crossed, to do another round of additions in September. Will definitely add those to the top of the queue.

    To the top, why? Please instead add in quests that more people do more often.

    Please feel free to name some! One of the drawbacks to the old way of doing quests is that we do not have a ready way to rank this.

    I think he is saying "why waste time on old quests vs. adding brand new ones".
    If that is the case, I think that bringing attention and rewards to the old quests is the reason, and (theoretically) it is a different kind of work than a whole new quest design.  It is just drudgery working through it instead, so hopefully does not detract much from new stuff!

    I'd really like to see the Saint Gathlyn's Orphanage quest and counter quest added.

    I don't think the Song of Ail'Fae Runia, Slaghora'ruin, or the blessing from old man rock (? Gromosh Ganath gives the quest) are in the system either. I know Namoc Tsolut in the Inner Sea has a quest but idk what it is exactly, or if it should be in the system!

    It would also be really nice to see the Mahalla and Jagrerox quests get honours lines like the other bard quests.

    I'm not sure if this is really the place for it, but it's only a minor touch-up suggestion, so...

    The memories of the little sleeping goddess in Muud play out as full emotes, despite there being a lot of dialogue between characters in those memories. It'd be nice if it was updated to colour their dialogue with the config say colour, for that added "real" touch.
