Quest from unvisited area

Post by Rannas » Tue Mar 31, 2020 7:48 pm

Hey! Somehow, Rannas has picked up a quest from an area that I know he'd never visited before. The quest is to find Simon the familiar for Eldon in the Snakewood conjuration guild. His qlog reads:
You are helping Eldon find his familiar, Simon.
Bring Simon back to Eldon.
But this isn't an NPC he's ever seen before, he's a fresh PC cleric who never would have had a reason to visit that out-of-the-way conjuration guild. But since I never saw the quest info directly from the NPC, I have no idea how to complete this quest. Also when I brought it up to someone more knowledgeable, it came up that the quest might not even be intended for people outside of the guild in the first place.

Couldn't figure out how this happened. I'll leave it as unconfirmed in case it happens again.

I just had this happen in a different area to the first report.

In the elven village in Ankhwood (starts at 116500), completed first quest, qlog local reads

Code: Select all

Quest Journal:
You have helped the Wild Elves clear the gnolls from the forest.
Took the second quest from Stilathorn (116506) in the same elf area, then qlog local now reads

Code: Select all

Quest Journal:
You have begun your lessons on smelting in the school of mining.
You are leaning the different pieces of equipment needed for smelting.
You have helped the Wild Elves clear the gnolls from the forest.
Stilathorn has asked you to gather A piece of wood, blessed water, and phosphorus.
This PC hasn't been to the school of mining and that entry wasn't in the qlog until this moment.

This an overlap of QBITs in the same VNUM range.

This is most definitely not fixed...Changing the qbits messed something up. You can somehow now get multiple quest rewards. I am checking into this now.
But until this is done, someone can just sit here and rack up this picks.

Code: Select all


You say 'red'
Murin, the Dwarven mining teacher gives you a titanium pick studded with rubies.
Murin, the Dwarven mining teacher says to you 'Here ye are, Ah hope et be bringing ye luck.'
Murin, the Dwarven mining teacher says to you 'Ye be makin' yer way back to Valaus noo.'
You are carrying:
     a purple decorated ironwood quarterstaff (perfect)
     a titanium pick studded with rubies (perfect)

I think another wire got crossed, the quest seems to get stuck in a loop and won't advance you past the initial stage.
Murin, the Dwarven mining teacher asks you ''Ello there. Ye be wantin' ta learn mair aboot minin'?'
OOC: This lesson does not actually teach the mining trade, it is a knowledge lesson only.
You say 'Yes, I do want to'
Murin, the Dwarven mining teacher nods to you and waves you closer.
Murin, the Dwarven mining teacher says to you 'Minin' nae be hard ta understand, ye just need ta be workin' hard.'
Murin, the Dwarven mining teacher says to you 'The first thing ye be needin' ta know is that some metals be harder ta mine than others.'
Murin, the Dwarven mining teacher says to you 'Gold be harder ta mine than copper, it be softer and easier fer ye ta be damagin' when diggin' it oot.'
Murin, the Dwarven mining teacher says to you 'Yer equipment be the most important thing ye have when et comes tae minin'. Ye must take good care o''
Murin, the Dwarven mining teacher says to you 'et if ye expect tae get good work oot o' et.'
Murin, the Dwarven mining teacher turns to the rock wall and runs a hand along the surface. You notice a few pieces of ore have been found and protrude from the wall.
Murin, the Dwarven mining teacher place a hand on the piece of gold ore.
Murin, the Dwarven mining teacher says to you 'This here be what a vein o' gold be lookin' like when ye be findin' et.'
Murin, the Dwarven mining teacher trails a finger along the vein in the wall.
Murin, the Dwarven mining teacher says to you 'Ye be seein' how the vein runs through the rock? Once ye be findin' a vein ye need ta be workin' all o' et.'
Murin, the Dwarven mining teacher turns back to you.
Murin, the Dwarven mining teacher asks you 'Ye be listenin' still?'
You say 'Yes, we're still listening.'
Murin, the Dwarven mining teacher nods to you and waves you closer.
