Questing on Dark Castle
In the Quester's Haven Inn in town you will find Phire, the Quest master.
For a price, he delivers clues to your character that you need to puzzle
out and resolve, returning to him a specified item. Through completion
of such tasks, you earn "QUEST POINTS" (Qpoints in your score sheet).
Quest Cost: The quests have been broken down into several categories
based upon difficulty and minimum level required to start
the quest. The prices are as follows:
Level Cost Reward (Qpoints)
Automated quests* (random): 25 plats 1
Low level quests ([30): 50 plats 2
Mid level quests (30-59): 100 plats 4
High level quests (60): 250 plats 6
Group required quests (60G): 1000 plats + brownie 25
Note: Only the person who starts the group required quest will receive the 25
qpoint reward upon completion of the quest.
Quest Timer: Many of the quests have a time limit to complete the
quest. Failure to complete the quest within the time limit
will result in a failed quest. The quest will then be listed
as available to be attempted again when you want to try again.
Quest Points: Quest points can be redeemed for a variety of rewards
including equipment, experience, potions/wands by the various
Brownie Points: Brownie points are a prize item that can be found in hunts or
won through various contests. A brownie point is required
for the group-level quests to be started in addition to the
platinum cost. Brownies can be stolen, scrapped, and remain
in corpses. As such, they should be guarded well.
The following quest commands may be used at any time or location:
Quest: This command will display the list of quest commands with a
brief summary of the commands' function.

a current ongoing quest. This includes the quest name, hints
for the quest, level requirements, and the time remaining

The following quest commands may only be used at Phire, the Quest Master:
Quest list: This command lists quests available for a player's current
level. Included information is quest name, cost, and reward.
Note: You will not be able to see quests that are set
above your current level.
Quest cancel [quest name]: In the event that you think you are be unable to
complete a quest and would rather start a different
one, the quest cancel command will allow for the
quest to be canceled and completed at a later time.
Note: The quest fee is not refunded if the quest
cancel command is used.
Quest start [quest name]: This command will start the given quest, provided
that you have the required platinum and/or brownies.
Quest finish [quest name]: Upon finding and retrieving the item that Phire is
looking for, return to him and use the quest finish
command. He will take the item from you, verify it
it is correct, and then reward you for your efforts.
* Automated Quests: Unlike specifically named quests, "automated" quests simply
simply provide you the description (as in what you see when
you do a "look at" [target]) of a mob that you then have a
very short time to find, kill, and loot "a token of Phire".
The token should then be returned as normal for a reward.
Unlike other "named" quests, the automated quest option can
be completed as often as you choose.
