This is a silent quest system that runs in the background that selects random dungeons and gives it life. A meaning to explore.
You might find nothing, or you might find a group of bandits, some treasure or maybe you are even being followed yourself.
I hope this gives incentive to explore besides the dungeon's themselves for now you might stumble upon something when you explore!

-All Dungeons supported
-Upon finding a location, a random event will occur. Even then, there is a chance of nothing happening.
-Find treasure(WIP), find a quest(WIP), or stumble upon a group of bandits!
-Siege active keeps!

Warm Ashes Version 3

All older version exterior events been updated to Version 3 so no one is left behind.
----------**WAQV3.3**----------

---Labyrinth Encounters---
-Fixed nymph spawns

---Wilderness Encounters---
-Fixed recall glitch
-Added random cooldown timers

---City Services/Smaller Events---
-Tavern Immersion encounters now happen instantly

Known issues for siege encounters:
-If you reload a save during a siege, DFU won't remember you entering the location so the retreat flag will start to
run. You can get around this by exciting the location and re-entering.
-Reloading the save too much will de-spawn the enemies and you will not be able to complete the siege.

Since I feel like this question's going to come up often, I'm going to explain it in depth.

1. Locate the files.

Enter the Warm Ashes zip, at this point:

Image

2. Extract the files to the path shown in the screenshot.

Image

If done properly, the end result will be this:

Image

3a. Start a new character. The game will automatically detect Warm Ashes and offer to begin it.

Image

You can verify this by using Shift-Tab to see it in the active quests.

Image

3b. Load an existing character.
3b1. Copy the file WAQ05.txt into /DaggerfallUnity_Data/StreamingAssets/Quests,
**WAQ00 for Wilderness Encounters!!

Image

3b2. In the game console (~ key), type the command "startquest WAQ05" and press Enter.

Image

Image

Warm Ashes will detect the files and offer to begin.

Image

I just ran through these steps myself, and documented how I did them.
Install from a already existing savefile:
1. Extract files into your "StreamingAssets/Quest" folder
2. Open a savefile you'd like to run it in
3. Open the console with the (`) key
4. Type " start quest WAQ00 "
**WAQ00 - For Wilderness Encounters
**WAQ01 - For Cities Encounters
**WAQ02 - For Graveyards
**WAQ03 - For Keeps
**WAQ04 - For Labyrinths
**WAQ05 - For Ruins


**WAQ07 - For Updated Sieges
5. All finished

I installed it and initialized the quest. I travelled to a couple of dungeons but nothing happened right away, so I'll have to leave it running while I do other things. Quite ambitious for a first public quest!

Once you feel it's finished, there's a way to create a quest pack for it so it can initialize on its own. Hazelnut taught me how to do it for my Perpetual Quests, and I can show you the same for Warm Ashes.

It depends on a region's size as well. If you really want to test it out to the fullest, go to a region like Betony where there are only a handful of places. Places like the wrothgarian mountains are so huge that these events can be real rare. Also with how the quest system works, some dungeons maybe chosen twice. That means the 80 places chosen are either 80 at the max or less.

EDIT: Example wrothgarian mountains has about 510 dungeons

Work on Sieges are going well. Friendly keeps are actually friendly now. If you want to be an evil warlord and piss off your current region, feel free to attack them and start a siege.

Thanks Interkarma! I'm pretty dedicated to this project because I love Daggerfall and nothing is more fun than random events.

I got basic Siege functions down for Outcome1. I want to get it working in a basic form before I do anything else.

Sieges will have 4 phases
-The First: Starts the Siege, hordes of enemies will attack the player over time.
-The Second: After an hour has passed, the enemy will call for reinforcements. (After having a base I'd like to ahve random events during this phase and the next. Example: Enemy sends out Tigers, Bears, Centaurs, or maybe they will get no reinforcements at all!)
-The Third: After hour two has past, the leader will appear.
-The Fourth: This Ends the siege. Remaining enemy numbers will stop. Player will be rewarded.

At current moment the only way to win a siege is to survive the two hours. When ready I will implement other ways like taking out the enemy leader, killing so many troops, etc. Then after I'm happy with how sieges turn out overall, I'll begin work on getting paid by rebel forces who want you to clear out keeps for them.
