Right on! :) Yeah, the Archaeologists are bad news. They'll be useful later on, but they're miserable people to be around. You'll see that in-depth as I develop the questline :)

The new build is awesome if only because it now uses the "pick one" quest action properly, which several of my quests depend on. Now that it's fixed, I'm going to put the finishing touches on the Cartographer system, so soon it should be able to carry itself from start to finish.

I also worked out my concept for the next quest, which is going to be another PQ. The key word is werewolf... :twisted:

I couldn't help myself. During this quest the necromancy takes a back seat to the giants. In my last test run, only two undead spawned. However, since wraiths can be dangerous to lower-level characters, I think that's appropriate. If they needed to, players can just kill the giants and flee the wraiths. I hope the undead twist differentiates it enough from the Fighters Guild and Mages Guild giant-slaying quests.

I believe you :) If you're running low on ideas, you could always skim through TVTropes

Just watched the Archaeologist video. Under the failure condition, they don't prevent you from getting work; they just do a credible smear job on you ;) Once peasant rumors are implemented, you'll see not everyone takes them as seriously as they do.

JHPQ010: Werewolves are showing up in increasing numbers. What could be causing them?

This was a beast to put together. The more time you let pass during this quest, the more frequent the werewolf attacks will be. To me they're kind of scary on their own, but much more so when you're getting pursued by them all the time. This quest has some long pause periods without direction, where you're intended to go about your ordinary adventuring life while the problem gradually gets worse.

If a player doesn't want to get involved with this quest when it randomly spawns, they can simply not kill the first werewolves. After that the quest should harmlessly defuse when its timer runs out.

Not looking at the Screenshots, didn't read any info, NOPE !
I'm taking my time with this one..

When these PQ's just start going off randomly, that's going to be a sight to see Jay.

Thumbs up man :D

OK, I've uploaded a new version of the quests. With that it should be easy to get into the Cartographer quests and the perpetual quests.

To start the perpetual quests: Use console command "startquest JHPINIT"

To start the Cartographer quests: Use console command "startquest JHPQ005"

Yep, it still works in # 84 ? ( where are we at now :lol: ) X 64 that just came out.
I have to go back to town and sell stuff, plus the dungeon funkyness "when you FINALLY go to bed at 3 a.m. then load the next day" bug ;)
