Yeah, that was kind of a work around that works for guilds unfortunately. I took a look at the quest list in your repo (QuestList-Commoner.txt) and I don't think you can chain like this because the directory is only searched for non-listed quests if it has an InitAtGameStart entry in there. The reasoning is that this was the use case where you would need to chain quests from one started when the game starts for you perpetual pack. Looks like this needs extending so it will work for any quest directories, and not just ones with init quests in. I was just trying to keep the number of directories looked in to a minimum.

I'll try and submit a change for this ASAP - sorry for not picking this up sooner, been catching up on unread threads around here recently.

P.S. Are you still after a way of selecting subsequent quests that holds state?

Phew. I was starting to feel like a real idiot :) Thanks. To be honest it's actually irrelevant for now, since I offloaded that quest and many others to Kamer. I plan on returning strictly to normal quests, when I'm done fixing the classic ones. This shouldn't be a problem for me but future quest authors may be invested in how you decide to do this.

No, I have a workaround for that. I can ensure that a questline is only offered once on my own.

Sorry wasn't trying to make anyone feel like an idiot, just think I've done a poor job of clearly explaining how it all works. (as well as not being around much to help)

I don't see how offloading the quest to Kamer makes the issue go away though, just it's their problem now right? Be interested in what they would like the quest manager to do. Are they contributing to your quest pack now then, collaborating with you?

No, it's all a new section of Warm Ashes, "City Events." I haven't tested it yet but he seems happy with how it's turning out. If any problems come up with his version, no doubt we'll learn about it.

I did create his quest list in the past, so if I introduced any mistakes they could be perpetuated now.
