Quest Rules
Here, a quest is defined as any plot with a defined end and which incorporates the writing prompt, or "plot seed", from among the index in some manner. Whether the outcome is good or bad, what the exact problem is other than what's contained in the prompt, and how this is resolved are details all left up to the player unless otherwise specified. This makes quests very flexible and not strictly for the adventuring or combat oriented character. 

  • PM supernal before undertaking a quest to check for and update availability
  • Include a [quest] bracket in your thread title
  • Threads should follow the canon process requirements  
  • If a quest goes 30 days or more without a post, the quest will be considered idle and made available
    • If no one has claimed the quest during its availability period you are able to continue your quest from where you left off, just contact me
  • Rewards include: canonization into the lore, player determined IC spoils, post-credits (see table below) to use in the Terran market, and your thread will be Featured Depending on the impact and rewards, if the quest is too easily accomplished your canonization may be denied or modified
    • Players should keep in mind that injury and even death aren't permanent in a magical setting like Valucre
  • At the end of every quest, follow the Canonization Process. The Opportunities and Notable Consequences section are your chance to really explain to future players the significance of the events of the thread, and how they can interact with the event or its aftermath

If you pick up a quest and are by yourself at the start, you can use the Water Cooler to both players for your team and/or cast a net out for anyone that might want to GM. Class S quests require a third-party storyteller. 

  • Class C (Easy): 1.25x post-credit value. 1 player (or more). 1+ page (16 posts or more).
  • Class B (Medium): 1.5x post-credit value. 1 player (or more). 2+ page.
  • Class A (Hard): 2x post-credit value. 1+ players. 3+ pages.
  • Class S (Crazy): 3x post-credit value. 2+ players. 5+ pages.
