0.7.2: Fetch-item-for-sister's-birthday quest missing the NPC

Post by Miii » Thu Jan 10, 2019 11:32 pm

Hi, I picked up TWO of this type of quest at the same tavern, both of which directed me to the same general store to pick up some ingredients and then bring them back. When I got to the right store (quest debugger also marked it for 2 quests) there was only one NPC besides the shopkeeper who wasn't the quest NPC, and if asked about the person they both said she's somewhere in the store, but she is nowhere to be seen (unless I'm blind and really stupid).

Maybe the bug has to do with me getting the same quest twice from two musicians standing right next to each other?

I'll attach a save at the store for more info.

Welcome to the forums! :)

There is unfortunately potential to receive same side-quest twice, and for two different quests try to use same quest site. Sounds like you were hit by both! We'll need to put in some tests to prevent this outcome in future.

Quest name: a0c01y09

I loaded it and there is indeed no quest person in the matching building. I can't give any more information than that though, so we'll have to wait for someone more qualified.

As a side note the _sister_ NPC here is not marked as female, which will inevitably cause quibbling later down the road. Not really related to the task at hand though.

QRC:

QuestorOffer: [1000]
<ce> Excuse me? _questg_ is the name.
<ce> I don't know how I feel about you,
<ce> but I do need a favor. My sister, _sister_,
<ce> is having a birthday next month and I could
<ce> really use some _item_ for the celebration.
<ce> It's worth _gold_ gold pieces. What do you say?

RefuseQuest: [1001]
<ce> Just as well, I suppose. Good day.
<--->
<ce> Sorry I asked.
<--->
<ce> Then we never talked, I'd hate for
<ce> you to spoil the surprise.
<--->
<ce> Whatever, it was easy gold you know.
<--->
<ce> Leave me then, I have a celebration to plan.

AcceptQuest: [1002]
<ce> Excellent! You are a smart one.
<ce> This is easy gold. Go to _store_
<ce> and find _merchant_, %g has the specific
<ce> _item_ I need. Remember, there is
<ce> only a month 'til the celebration.
<--->
<ce> Very good. This is easy gold. You'll have to go to
<ce> _store_ to find the exact kind I need.
<ce> Talk to _merchant_, %g runs the place.


QuestComplete: [1004]
<ce> Very good, %pcn. Here's the gold I promised.

RumorsDuringQuest: [1005]
<ce> I hear that _questg_ really doesn't
<ce> like %g3 sister _sister_. And %g is
<ce> about to get married.

RumorsPostfailure: [1006]
<ce> Did you hear that _sister_ uncovered
<ce> an attempt to poison %g2?

RumorsPostsuccess: [1007]
<ce> _sister_ was found dead! And
<ce> on the eve of %g3 wedding day too.

QuestorPostsuccess: [1008]
<ce> Ahem. Well, yes. I suppose since you
<ce> did get that...item for my sister's
<ce> nuptials I do owe you a debt.

QuestorPostfailure: [1009]
<ce> Traitor! I send you on a simple fetch
<ce> mission and you have to blab it to
<ce> _sister_. You'll get no help from me.


Message: 1011
<ce> You are carrying the _item_.
<ce> Do you want to give it to _sister_?

Message: 1013
<ce> You are carrying the _item_.
<ce> Do you want to give it to
<ce> _questg_?

Message: 1025
%qdt
I have promised _questg_ of ___questg_
that I will obtain some _item_ from
_merchant_ at _store_
in return for _gold_ pieces. I must return with
the _item_ before the birthday celebration
of _questg_'s sister, _sister_,
which is in one month.

Message: 1040
<ce> Hello. Yes, I am _merchant_.
<ce> Some _item_? Yes I have it. I'll take your
<ce> 20 gold pieces and you can have the _item_.
<ce> Thanks for stopping by.

Message: 1041
<ce> Hello. Yes, I am _merchant_.
<ce> Some _item_? Yes I have it. I'll take your
<ce> 20 gold pieces and you can have the _item_.
<ce> Oh, I'm sorry. You don't seem to have enough
<ce> gold to pay for that.

Message: 1050
<ce> Hello? Why are you here? You say,
<ce> _questg_ wants some _item_
<ce> for my birthday celebration? Oh, what a wonderful
<ce> idea! I promise not to spoil the surprise!

Message: 1051
<ce> Hello? How did you get in here? What?
<ce> _questg_ asked you to bring %g2 some
<ce> _item_? Oh my ... do you have any idea
<ce> what he plans to do with it? I do.
<ce> _item_ is part of a potion that
<ce> my loving brother likes to make. A potion
<ce> that kills. You must not give it to %g2!
<ce> Please! Bring the _item_ to me.
<ce> You must do this, or I may be killed!

Message: 1060
<ce> I'll take it, I guess.
<ce> But doesn't this ruin the surprise?
<ce> You are a strange one, %pcn.

Message: 1061
<ce> Thank you, my brother cannot
<ce> use it now. You have done well.
<ce> Thank you.

Thanks for confirming so quickly Jay. :)

I've moved to bug reports and will look closer when I can.
