DSW Mages Guild [Tristior]

Post by Texafornian »

Background:
The DSW chapter of the Mages Guild has seen better days. Declining membership, a distrustful Redguard populace in DSW, and general border and admininstration hassles have hamstrung the chapter.

Quests should thus focus on:
- Intro: mundane stuff
- Maintaining or increasing membership
- Improving public perception by stamping out "unlicensed" and "unfavorable" magicks
- Overcoming Dragonstar split-related bureaucratic and physical obstacles

Please use this doc as a foundation for your work, It takes precedence over any conflicts below:
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1XLy ... qpk-E/edit

Questline:
#1 - REGULATED RESEARCH
* Background: You're handed over to the alchemist Harelia to help her out.
* An Imperial arbitrator stationed at Taurus Hall seized Harelia's research.
* You can:
- Blackmail him into giving you the research (letter in his quarters suggests that he is giving travel papers for favors)
- Persuade him to give you the research
- Find more ingredients

#2 - MESA MEDICINE
* Background: Harelia sends you to Haimtir to get some insight into Reachman alchemy.
* Seek out Aynoc in Haimtir's Great Hallowhall.
* Aynoc will give you samples of her work if you deliver X to the matriarch of Criaglorc.

#3 - AN ACOYLTE IN THE ARENA
* Background: Harelia's new hire has decided to prove his worth by fighting in the arena.
* Harelia tells you to go save this guy so she isn't short an assistant.
* You are given travel papers to cross over into DSE.
* You can:
- Encourage the new hire to fight (you won't actually see him fight)
- Convince the new hire to forfeit
- Offer to take the new hire's place in the arena (if you haven't been barred from fighting)

#4 - PUBLIC PERCEPTION
* Background: Need to build popular support for the MG in Dragonstar.
* Investigate Malrec (bookseller) AND
* Help a local with some magic-related problem

#5 - THE SELF-TAUGHT STUDENT
* Background: Now that you (and possibly guy from #2) have advanced, it's time to add one more to the Guild's ranks.
* Go to Karthwasten and find Davanna and recruit her.
* Do her quest (or account for already having completed it).
* She tells you that she'll pack her things and head out.

#6 - ANGTURIEL
* Background: An annoying Direnni (Ciirarril Direnni) has been given control of Angturiel in an attempt to get him away from Balfiera. He has no idea that Angturiel isn't in great shape anymore. The MG learns of his arrival in the area and thinks that there must be something special in the ruins to attract a Direnni back after so many years.
* Meet some of the MG members at Angturiel who already rushed there.
* Take one or two of them through the ruin and up to the interior with the Direnni console, where Ciirarril Direnni is residing.
* You can either:
- Help Ciirarril by killing the hostile Nourthu Reachmen in the depths (he tolerates the MG sticking around to inspect the Direnni console) OR
- Kill Ciirarril.
* The Direnni console can be activated by the player after finishing the quest.

Please use the quest prefix Sky_qRe_DSW_MG06_

Merged into Dragonstar section file

Important things of note:
- Changed entries in "duties" and quest topics to behave more like vanilla: the "duties" entry should be generalized/short with an AddTopic dialogue result, while the quest topic itself should give the journal update and be more specific/provide more info
- Added mid-quest Greeting 5 entries for Eranthos and Harelia that link to their quest topic
- Added additional "quest finished" entries to various quest topics to be more like vanilla: topics should remain available for primary/important NPCs after a quest is finished (as appropriate)

Other:
- Cleaned dirty dialogue
- Added expulsion and "make amends" mechanics (to be replaced when Hammerfell is further developed)
- Added letter of recognition mechanic at conclusion of questline via Sky_qRe_DSMG_Letter_glb and topic "letter of recognition" (to be "redeemed" at Karthwasten or Markarth Side MG)
- Modified faction rep gain to end up with max of 20 at the end of the quest (depends on failed quests)
- Replaced a bunch of apostrophes that had the wrong format (usually caused by copying and pasting dialogue from non-Notepad/Wordpad source)
- Added Greeting 1 entry to Sky_qRe_DSMG03_Fighter to start combat again if the player calms the Orc
- Added Greeting 1 entry to Rekir to account for player finishing arena fight
- Moved Duncan's Greeting 5 quest-progression entries to Greeting 1 to ensure that a disease greeting doesn't block them
- Added "are you ready for more duties?"-esque entries for Eranthos and Harelia at bottom of their G5 entries
- Added fallback Greeting 5 entries for Harelia and Eranthos that ask the player if they want "duties" when not on a quest
- Added rank requirements to DSMG03 and DSMG05 "duties" entries
- Added blocker entries to "duties" that check whether player has been expelled or isn't member of Mages Guild
- Removed player faction T_Ham_MagesGuild filter for "duties" entries that became redundant after ^ addition
- Collapsed the entries in "reclaim the research" into a single entry with itemcount checks in the dialogue results
- Added some overriding entries for the choices in "Duncan" topic if the player is Arch-Mage
- Added additional condition to Rekir's DSMG03 "ready to fight" entry to stop it from firing after player fights
- Added T_Ham_MagesGuild-filtered entries for "Mages Guild" topic
- Added "Angturiel" entries for Eranthos and Direnni
- Added "someone in particular" entry that overrides in DSWMG
- Removed some superfluous journal state filters
- Added "AddTopic" to entries where necessary to ensure that topics are added
- Added mention of "Braignainesaide" to the journal entry for DSMG02 about finding Aeinu in Criaglorc
- Changed topic "strange-smelling candle" to "strange-smelling candles"
- Removed "I should do x" suggestions from a couple of journal entries
- Replaced "Eranthos" with "Malrec" in a DSMG04 journal entry
- Removed unused DSMG05 journal state 15
- Modified script Sky_qRe_DSMG03_Duncan_sc and added a new script Sky_qRe_DSMG03_Move_sc to move Duncan to DSMG
- Modified script Sky_qRe_KW05_sc_Davanna and added a new script Sky_qRe_DSMG04_Move_sc to move Duncan to DSMG
- Small script optimizations here and there
