BH Quester's one particular quest

Postby Yasik » Fri Aug 14, 2015 5:18 pm

Hello!

May I suggest clarifying and accordingly fixing the corresponding phrase in one of BH Quester's quest:

===== start of log =====
ask quester about quests
You ask Regis about 'quests'.
Regis tells you 'I offer the quest 'rat_boy', which you have completed already.'
Regis tells you 'I offer the quest 'kill_ape', which you have completed already.'
Regis tells you 'I offer the quest 'dawg_bounty', which you have completed already.'
Regis tells you 'I offer the quest 'subdue_Rnobs', which you have completed already.'
Regis tells you 'I offer the quest 'rogue_shrub', which you have completed already.'
Regis tells you 'A new strain of lycanthropy has been traced to the city of Lycanthropia.'
Regis tells you 'We need someone to hunt a boar for an upcoming feast.'
Regis tells you 'The seals in the crypt below Luna's temple are failing.'
Regis tells you 'Salne is wanted for questioning about his smuggling activities.'
Regis tells you 'The troglodytes need to be taught a lesson.'
Regis tells you 'We've called for the capture of the firenewt high priestess.'
Regis tells you 'I offer the quest 'mummy_king', which you have completed already.'
Regis tells you 'When Middak is crushed, Kuo-Toa shall belong to us.'

Regis tells you 'smaller and uglier than your normal wererat.'

===== end of log =====

Marked with red color means "kill and bring their corpses" or "subdue and bring them subdued"?
The task is not univocal.
Thanks in advance.

PS. Also "the keyword miniquest" needs to be solved once and for all somehow, I think. You know what I'm sayin', making keyword standing out in different color is simple and enough, isnt it?

Those don't get undertaken. The syntax is ask quester about keyword.

I grant you the error message could be clearer since it's a newbie quester mob.

As to the 2nd, "slay" means "kill", unequivocally.
Talk to the clown.

We have to do 'undertake' Luna's, he says directly.
Also, I can't agree that this one is 'newbie', hardly.
40 mobs in aggro area, took me several repops to collect, newbies wont be able to catch up if they dont use Embalm, and prior to that they have to know there is Embalm.
Regarding univocality, I'd just change "return them here" to "bring their corpses here", this obvious change will reduce the problem to non-existent state.
