Quests

Main Quests

xxx need importance/scope value for all quests

Main Quests are quests designed specifically by the designer for the area. Information on these quests should include:

Get the Elevator Cable

The ghouls in the Reservation need an elevator cable. See Damien's doc about quest states and such, and make sure there's a salvageable elevator cable in Denver they could use. See The Reservation for info.

Get the Brewery Running again

If you get the brewery running again, you can brew beer and sell it elsewhere. Or you can sell it to the salvagers for a tidy profit.

    The ultrasonic tone works! The dogs are scurrying out of town. [If dogs haven't been killed off.]
    As far as I can tell, the ultrasonic tone works. The dogs shouldn't want to come back into the city. [If dogs have been killed off.]
    The ultrasonic tone works, but it drove off my dog as well as these damn Denver mutts. [Generic Hangdog dog.]
    The ultrasonic tone works, but it drove off <DEVILDOG> as well as these damn Denver mutts. [Devil Dog.]
    As far as I can tell, the ultrasonic tone works. There are no native dogs to watch, but it drove off my dog so it must be working. [All dogs dead, you have Generic Hangdog dog.]
    As far as I can tell, the ultrasonic tone works. There are no native dogs to watch, but it drove off <DEVILDOG> so it must be working. [All dogs dead, you have Devil Dog]
  • Dumb Journal: Me make horns do dog-ears noise, dog should run away. [If dogs haven't been killed off.]
    Me make horns do dog-ears noise, dogs no come back.
    Dogs are running away from dog-ear noise! [If dogs haven't been killed off.]
    Me make horns do dog noise. Me bet it works. [If dogs have been killed off.]
    Me make dogs run away with noise, but it scare off Hangdog dog too! [Generic Hangdog dog.]
    Me make dogs run away with noise, but it scare off <DEVILDOG> too! [Devil Dog.]
    Me think horn noise will keep dogs away, but it scare off Hangdog dog! [All dogs dead, you have Generic Hangdog dog.]

  • Initiator: Jimmy T
  • Normal Journal: Jimmy T in Denver asked me to look over their stockpile of drugs and figure out what's useful and what's gone bad. Since he mostly knows tribal medicine, the names of the drugs don't mean anything to him and he doesn't want to experiment with drugs that might be dangerous.

  • Normal Journal: The lizards crawling all over the salvager camp are radioactive. No wonder these guys are sick. It's bad enough they live near these things, but they sometimes eat them, too.

Defeat Dogbody

Dogbody is holed up in the DCPD. At first he's friendly, but if you kill dogs or just after a while he'll turn on you and you'll have to kill him to stop him from using BITE-ME on your camps to attract dogs.

  • Initiator: Dogbody, PC
  • Normal Journal: We were attacked by Dogbody, the crazy guy from the NCR salvagers. I guess he didn't die in the attack on the old salvager camp.
    We were attacked by a crazy old man who barked like a dog.
    That crazy old man must be Dogbody, the one the NCR salvagers thought died in the dog attack on their old camp.
    I managed to kill Dogbody. Poor crazy bastard.
  • Dumb Journal: Dogbody attacked me! He's crazy.
    Crazy old dog-man attacked me!
    Crazy old man is Dogbody, dead friend of scrappers. Me guess he not really dead.
    Me kill Dogbody. Dogbody dead and crazy.
  • DiploBoy can talk to him at first, but eventually it's no use.
  • Stealth Boy is best at sneaking around the DCPD.
  • Combat Boy likes the blood

Start Trade With NCR or New Canaan

These guys haven't heard from NCR. If you tell the leaders in Hoover Dam about them, they'd be happy to start a big resource trade for them, providing food, supplies, and money to the salvagers. In return, the salvagers would sent salvaged materials to NCR.

You could do the same thing with New Canaan.

  • Initiator: Porter, NCR guy in Hoover Dam, mormon dude in New Canaan.
  • Normal Journal: Porter is worried that they haven't heard from NCR in a long time.
    I talked to Dodge at Hoover Dam about the salvagers in NCR. He was surprised to hear the news – everyone though they were dead. He asked me to let them know that Hoover Dam is interested in trading for or buying their salvage, as originally intended, and wants to know what they want in return, so they can set up a trade route.
    Duplicate of above, except New Canaan guy.
    I told Porter about Hoover Dam's interest in buying the Denver salvage xxxx
    I told Porter about New Canaan's interest in buying the Denver salvage xxxx
    Reported back to Hoover Dam
    Reported back to New Canaan
    Sealed the deal with Hoover Dam
    Sealed the deal with New Canaan
  • Dumb Journal: xxxx duplicate the above, but dumb
  • DiploBoy is best at negotiating stuff to favor one side or the other.

Merchant Quests

For some locations, there will be a merchant caravan that travels to and from the city. Make sure you describe what caravan missions are available in the location, and a note of who the caravan master(s) are for the location and where they can be found. It's usually best if they are located somewhere near the opening map of the location.

  • Once the brewery is running, they can do a beer caravan, or hook up with the Wright family from New Reno (see references in New Canaan) who can use this as and end of the road to resupply their caravan on the return trip
  • Once ties are set up with Hoover Dam or New Canaan, they can trade their salvage stuff to there (even bulky stuff like girders, tires, etc. if you have the big rig or the train)
  • Or to Fort Abandon
  • Tell Hangdogs about the dogs here

Floating Quests

This may end up being canned in the time provided, still you may want to jot down some thoughts.

Scott Warner suggested implementing a randomly-generated quest system for TORN, based on the Privateer model; basically, a number of random quests appear on a "job post" (or its equivalent) somewhere in the world, and the player can pick and choose from a number of simple quests that change over time.

These randomly generated missions make no pretensions about being cut-and-dry FedEx or Murder Quests: "Go collect bounty on five ghouls," "retrieve five chunks of gold ore," "deliver three sub-machine guns to the caravan master," and so on. Make a quick list of different kinds of quick and dirty random missions that would be appropriate for the location – several of the missions (but not necessarily all) should be tied to the random encounters that occur near the town.

Jeff suggested we add some random labor quests, too: brahmin need herding, crops need tilling, things like that.

  • I need bullets
  • Get me some booze
  • Find me a gun
