Quest resetting

Post by daveyeisley on Sun Jan 07, 2018 4:43 pm

I know that DMs can reset a quest for a player. I was thinking about it more, and I am wondering if it might be workable for players to gain access to the reset command as well, such as for if/when they lose a quest item. Being able to self-remedy such a situation would likely be fairly popular.

Thinking a bit more about quest system and commands...

A possible way to further improve the system, rather than requiring the full command text, could abbreviations be allowed as well like we have for teleportation?

For example, we use a simple ;;tp as the root of all teleport commands...

Could we use ;;q as a root for quest commands, and perhaps use ;;ql for list and ;;qs for status and then ;;q start for starting (since quest status and quest start could both be abbreviated as 'qs')

Good thoughts, daveyeisley!

But if there's nothing in the works like that, at the very least could there be a[n] item[s] placed in a shop that could do the quest reset for the PC? Or perhaps a conversation option on the quest-giver?
