Karthgad Quest #1

Postby Yeti » Sun May 11, 2014 5:41 am

Mining for Worms

Nauk gra-Olad is a miner living in Karthgad. She wants the player to help her by clearing out the spikeworm infestation from the nearby Kerlingroff Mine. During the quest, the player can be aided by the half-crazed Breton miner Erond. After the player completes the quest Nauk gra-Olad will award them. Inexpensive ore would be a fitting award for Nauk gra-Olad to give. The player can also get an award from Thane Grondvrd if they ask around.

Use the existing topic “the worms” for quest dialogue and GetDeadCount to detect when the unique worms in the mine are killed.

Worsas already wrote some dialogue for a quest similar to this. I've adapted it for my revised version. The quester should use this along with any extra dialogue they need to fill in the blanks.

Place additional quest-related greetings under Greetings 5

Nauk gra-Olad - greeting (already included)

Greetings. Ignore the mess, if you will. I'm too tired after exploring caves all night for ore deposits to take care of house chores. If Kerlingroff Mine hadn't become overrun with spikeworms, my lot in life might have been easier.

Back again? I really ought to get going to the mines soon. I think I saw an actual iron vein last evening, and I'm anxious to check it out. If Kerlingroff Mine hadn't become overrun with spikeworms, my lot in life might have been easier.


Nauk gra-Olad - overrun with spikeworms
There are hundreds of them. The Kerlingroff Mine northeast of here has been standing still for three decades and those monstrosities have infected every single tunnel and chamber. Thane Grondvyrd's useless guards can't be bothered to take care of them. If you can clear them out, I'd stand to gain a steady source of income.

Player agrees
Really? You'll clear out the worms? I'll believe it when I see it. Come back when you have put an end to the worm-plauge and I will reward you any way I can.

player says no for now
Fine then. Not like I expected help from a stranger anyway.


Erond – overrun with spikeworms (this entry already exists)
Worms, worms, and more worms! The whole cave is lousy with worms and I can't get rid of them. A real shame, since the iron here is top notch stuff.

Play response: Choice 1: "I will slay the worms" Choice 2: "Goodbye"

Will you really do that?... You will? I will come with you.

Erond – overrun with spikeworms
I can't believe that they are really gone! %PCName, you are my Saviour! From now on I will go unmolested mining day for day till I die, hahaha.

Flavor dialogue to go along with quest:

Guards - overrun with spikeworms
We're too busy protecting the village to take care of the spikeworms in Kerlingroff Mine. Wouldn't be worth the time clearing them out anyway, if you ask me.

Guards - overrun with spikeworms
Is it true that you cleaned Kerlingroff Mine of those worms? That must have been quite the ordeal.

Grondvyrd – overrun with spikeworms
Feel free to take care of the spikeworms in Kerlingroff Mine. That problem has been around for much too long.

Grondvyrd – overrun with spikeworms
I heard you were able to drive the spikeworms out of Kerlingroff Mine? In that case, I owe you my thanks. This helm was made of ore harvested from Kerlingroff Mine long ago. Now it is yours!
*player gets the armor pieces*

Grondvyrd – overrun with spikeworms
Kerlingroff Mine is finally free from the worm-plague. It's about time.

What structure would the claimer use -- work directly in the newest Reach esp or create a dependent file?
