Quests are adventures that characters of the Lands of Mythron participate in. Generally a quest has a specific goal for the character to achieve. Quest #1, for example, the specific task is to travel to a town on the island of Invadir to investigate the disappearances of multiple citizens. (Visit thread). Quests are a good opportunity to practice building, develop characters, and have fun! Each Quest build is worth 3 LoM points, and completing a quest grants an additional 5-10 points, depending on the length.
A Quest begins when one of the staff members posts a build signifying the beginning of the Quest. Instructions will be included in the creation explaining to the players what the first step in the Quest is. You are officially participating in a Quest when you upload your build prompted by these instructions and when an admin approves it
After the given date has passed, no more people may join the Quest. On that date, an admin will post a build explaining the next step in the Quest and explain the choices that each player may make for their character. There will be 2-3 given options that players may choose, but players also have the choice to have their character do something not listed by the admins. However, this player will run the risk of not being allowed to continue if the choice is illogical and would obviously not work. If the player chooses something logical, they should have no problem getting the choice approved by the staff.
The Quest will continue in this manner: players will make choices, they will then build these choices, and the staff will give them the next step.
The first Quest will only require 4 builds (4 choices) over the course of 4 months. The reason for the choices (and consequentially, the builds) being so spread out is that Quests are intended to be fun and not too time consuming. Those of us who are very busy don't have time to post 2-3 builds a month just for Quests. We want players to be able to enjoy this without feeling the time crunch. We also want people to have time to enter the Universal Challenges and build free builds.
