I decided to update the quests with some header information to show they're for DFU, and what guild they belong to. This isn't permanent, just a move to make clear what quests are new, and that not all are for the Fighters Guild. I hope this will decrease confusion among non-forum goers rather than increase it.

Feralwarlord had the excellent idea of packaging the mod and table system all in one, so I'll be doing that with each zip for now. All you have to do is unzip it into your \DaggerfallUnity_Data\StreamingAssets folder and it'll do everything for you. It also comes with a Readme with instructions.

FGDFU006: Escort a client to his home, which he believes is watched by assassins from the Dark Brotherhood. Just make sure you kill them quickly...

Feralwarlord's request is complete: City Under Siege.

KNDFU004: A band of outlaw knights is assaulting the city, attempting to take it over. The PC must defend the city and then the palace from these intruders.

This one faces some natural limitations from Daggerfall, namely that combat NPCs cannot fight each other (with one single exception), and that enemies can spawn no more frequently than an in-game minute apart. Also, enemies spawn really awkwardly in palaces.

In spite of those obstacles, this quest holds its own. I had to judge between making it long enough to feel a little epic and short enough to not feel excessive to the casual player. It's functional in its current state, I believe. I should mention that not all towns that have palaces can run this quest; the third palace shown here cannot run this quest, so you have to find a compatible town with both a Fighters Guild and an appropriate palace.

Wayrest and Daggerfall don't have palaces. If you head to Ilessan Hills, you can try it in the cities Ilessan Hills and Deerway, where I tested it.

DBDFU001: Dark Brotherhood quest. A priest who worships nature has been performing rites that make animals show up in cities and other civilized areas. The PC must go to a dungeon and slay the priest. During the daytime (10 hours a day) wild animals and spriggans will spawn in the dungeon to harry the PC.

If you want more gameplay, I changed the setup around so all you have to do is extract the zip file into \DaggerfallUnity_Data\StreamingAssets and choose "Replace All."

Or you could put all the quests into the quest folder and use the console inside Daggerfall Unity, with the ` button. Then you can use commands like "startquest FGDFU004" and that'll start it for you without bothering with the tables section.
