Quest writing

Postby NeoGades » Sat Apr 30, 2005 1:43 am

Here is a small example for anyone willing to write quests for the game.
This is not an official quest.. just more of an idea to show what kind of information is needed for me to add quests into the game.

Quest Name: Investigate the forest
Quest Availability: Humans only
Quest Difficulty: Level 1
Quest Character(s): Priest Victor, Unholy Jelly
Quest Locations: Alekia & Forest
Quest Items: Unholy Necklace
Mission: Return necklace to Priest Victor.
Reward: 100 experience, 25 gold.
Quest Briefing:

Image -Victor is very religious and dedicated to the church. Lately he has been sensing dangerous evil forces near the forest. He asks you to investigate and bring back any unholy item that might be infecting the area.

Image -While you explore the forest, you'll encounter Unholy Jelly, which used to be a Jelly until an evil necklace transformed him into a smarter monster. Right before you fight the Jelly, he tells you that new sinistrals have begun to reappear.

Image-When you return to the church, Victor rewards you for your discovery but is freightened at the news of Sinistrals. He asks you to help save the world by journeying with others and defeating the new threat.

If you like writing scripts for characters, I'll need some of that too.

Very poor example (I'm no writer!)-
<Hero is walking through the forest and encounters Unholy Jelly>
Image Image

Unholy Jelly: What's this?? Mwuhaha, another yummy snack!
Hero: Back off, I'm no snack!
Unholy Jelly: You look like one to me.
Hero: Are you the evil presence that plagues this forest?
Unholy Jelly: Who me? Hardly. It's this little trinket I obtained. It has the thoughts of Sinistrals running through me.
Hero: Sinistrals????
Unholy Jelly: Oh yes. New Sinistrals have appeared. They will help monsters like me. That is their nature.
Hero: Aren't the Sinistrals some kind of evil gods?
Unholy Jelly: Not near as evil as the humans who have slayed my kind for generations. Retribution is at hand!

Also to keep the storyline interesting I'm considering adding about 12 different Sinistral bosses you'll end up defeating (If you choose elf or human as your race).
If you want to add your own Sinistral to the game, that'd be great too!!

I've got an idea for a Ruby Apple quest. I'll try thinking it up over the next couple of days.

Well, here's a base for now. I'll fill this in as I go. Hopefully it'll all be put together by tomorrow.

This somewhat mimics the events that happened in Clemento in Lufia II

Quest name: Search for the Ruby Apple
Difficulty: Level 3
Characters: To be determined. (There will be at least one person who is in deseperate financial need and one snobby rich person, but that's all I've figured out for now)
Location: Once more locations are known, I will have more of an idea, but it would be in a town with a cave or dungeon nearby.
Description: One entrenpreneur in town is in desperate need. His business is slowly sliding, and the snobby, wealthy, and impatient landlord who owns the building in which he runs it is threatening to evict him if he doesn't pay up soon. He has heard a tale of a very valuable treasure, a legendary gem known as the Ruby Apple, that can be found in the nearby cave. However, seeing how it is heavily guarded by monsters, he isn't strong enough to get to it. He needs a warrior to go into the cave for him, retrieve the Apple, and return it to him, saving his business.
Reward: 5000G
Mission Briefing: To be written. Watch this space.
Script: To be written. Watch this space.


Still to be written:
Character details
Locations (Waiting for more info)
Briefing
Script

Quest Briefing

Description: Some thiefs stole stuff of the Professor (I don't know what, yet). But when you find the thiefs they accidently let the stuff fall in a lake and you have to beat the Catfish who lives in the lake.

script:
(prof=professor)

(when you are a monster)
Prof: AA-AAH! MONSTERS! GO AWAY!

(When you are human/elf)
Prof: Hey, you look like a warrior to me...
Hero: I am a warrior indeed.
Prof: Do you want to help me?
Hero: What's the problem?
Prof: You know about the thiefs around here? Let's say that they visited me and stole my (don't know the item yet)...
Hero:
> No
Prof: Got other things to do? That's too bad.
>Yes
Prof: That is great! There are rumors that the thiefs went to the forest nearby.

(when you find the thiefs)
Hero: So you are the thiefs who stole the Professor's (item), huh?!
Thief#1: You're totally right!
Thief#2: Did the prof hire you?! WHAHAHA!!!
Hero: I'll show you my power!
Thief#1: Fine then!

(after the battle)
Thief#2: Huh, he's stronger than we thought!
Thief#1: Yeah! But he won't get the (item) back! HAHAHA!
Hero: Not so fast!
*Thiefs start slowly walking away, Hero goes after them*
*Thief#1 bumps into a tree, Professor's (item) falls into the lake*
Thief#1: WAAAAAAAAAAH!
Hero: Thank you very much for letting it fall in the lake!
Thief#2: "Thank you very much"?! Thank you is something you say to people who have done something nice for you! And we thiefs are never nice!

*Catfish appears*

Catfish: WHICH IDIOT THREW THIS ON MY HEAD WHEN I WAS SLEEPING?!
Thief#2: Not me!
Thief#1: Uhhh... me neither!
Hero: You liar!
Thief#1: I am not lying!
Catfish: SILENCE! One word more and you are history!
Thief#1: What-
Catfish: GRR!
*Catfish swims toward the Hero+thiefs*
(fight starts)
(after the fight)
Catfish: EEK! Why hasn't somebody learned me that fighting with humans/elves is dangerous?

*Catfish goes back into lake*
*gets Item back*
*Thiefs run away*
Hero: I will get you two an other time.

*back to the prof*

Prof: Thank you! That was very quick!

Prof: I think I have something you might like...
*Prof walks out screen*
Prof walks back to Hero*

You wouldn't mind if I gave you something new a little later, do you?

When I'm not bogged down with schoolwork, that is?

Here's an idea...

Postby Kriyan_Sylvaen » Wed May 18, 2005 12:46 am

This is my first real post, so I dunno all the etiquette and such, but here's an idea I got. Feel free to adjust it or modify it if you want to use it ^_^

Quest Name: Goblin Uprising
Quest Availability: Monster only
Quest Difficulty: Level 1
Quest Character(s): Captain of the Guard at Percelyte, Bob Goblin
Quest Locations: Enemy Camp north of Percelyte
Quest Items: None
Mission: Defeat Bob Goblin
Reward: 150 experience, 100 gold.
Quest Briefing:

Captain: What are you? No matter, if you’re willing to help out, there’s a problem we could use your help with.
Monster: I’m listening.
Captain: An unusual amount of hostile goblins are gathering north of the city. I’d like to tighten our defenses here, so I can’t spare any guards.
Monster: I suppose you want me to risk my life on your account.
Captain: Favors for the king are well rewarded. Seeing as wha-who you are, you’ll be mostly unnoticed going into their camp.
Monster: What exactly do you want me to do? Taking out a camp of hostiles would be a hassle.
Captain: Just take out their leader. Our intelligence tells us that his name is Bob.
Monster: Bob the Goblin?
Captain: That’s right. Issue a challenge for leadership of the camp to him. He won’t be able to refuse, or he’ll lose face in front of his subordinates. Kill him in combat and encourage the rest of the goblins to disperse. It may be touch and go for a while, but I’m certain you can handle it.
Monster: I’ll think about it.
Captain: If you manage it, come back to me and you’ll receive your pay.

<encounter Bob Goblin>

Bob: Who do you think you are?
Monster: It’s not important. I assert that you are weak and unsuitable for rule.
Bob: Insolent fool! I will destroy you and this weak human settlement!
Monster: Prove it.

<defeat Bob>

Goblin 1: Bob’s dead! Long live our new ruler!
Monster: Go home. All of you. Or I’ll do to you what I did to Bob.
Goblin 2: He’s not serious. Get him! Whoever kills him, rules!

<Battle a few goblins>

Goblin 3: Maybe he’s serious…
Goblin 4: He got lucky! Attack!

<Battle a few more>

Goblin 5: Let’s get out of here…
Goblin 6: Flee! Run!

<Goblins flee>

Monster: These guys aren’t too smart…

<Travel back to the Captain>

Monster: Our problem has been taken care of.
Captain: I know. Our spies tell us that the Goblins have dispersed again. It should be some time before they try a maneuver like that again.
Monster: You had me watched?
Captain: Few trust your kind. We have seen your kind attack villages and slay friends and family for too long to trust you implicitly.
Monster: …
Captain: But you came through for us. Here’s the pay I promised.
<Pay 100 gold>
Captain: If you’re of need for more work, come back later and I’ll find something for you to do.
If someone opposes me, they will eventually die, and no one will cry.
If someone helps me, they will be shown the riches of the world.
If someone is indifferent to my cause, they shall be mocked, humiliated, and shamed.
This is true because I am a hero.

Sounds good. You might want to make the amounts of EXP and Gold higher. 100 gold is almost nothing, and 150 EXP isn't a great reward either. But apart from that, good idea!

Are you guys sure we should be using town names from the Lufia games yet? We don't even know if we're using a Lufia II-ish setting or what yet.
