Unique Quest Ideas
« on: April 08, 2016, 12:14:13 AM »
So most quests follow one of three common themes;

1. Seek and Destroy- go out and kill something, slay the Dragon, throw the one ring into a volcano
2. Search and Rescue- go out and get something and bring it back, save the princess from the Dragon, find the gold idol in the trapped temple
3. Courier- take this basket of goodies to grandma's house, help this person get to some other person (almost a variation of Search and Rescue)

All of these basically revolve around finding things, killing them, and taking their stuff.

Can anyone think of any other Quest tropes?

Negotiation. Convince someone or someones to do something. Could be as epic as a treaty between kings, or as minor as the dowry for a village marriage. To avoid the "solve the problem by killing things" pitfall, make violence a clear lose-lose solution.
