My fault - it's done but I'm holding up the move. I'm coordinating with Calla to get this in as soon as possible. Sorry for the delay.

I appreciate your efforts Shevarash. I just wish you would hire another coder to lessen the blow that Eilistraee's retirement has caused.

Finished the quest today. Not quite what I was expecting. Went from Lawful Evil to Neutral Evil. In the quest there is the implication that you have some choice in terms of what you want to end up with but the quest doesn't follow those lines when you have to submit items to the quest mob. I was expecting to quest a specific alignment not just a shift in alignment. I must have misunderstood the intention of the quest. I was hoping to move from lawful evil to lawful good.

There are 4 quests, each shifts you in one direction. From what you're saying, you quested Chaos, so went from LE to NE.

Is there any info as to where these quests are/start?

Quests on this mud are so obscure - much more of a pain than xping.

All four have been found/quested. This tells me they're not that hard to find.

So all alignments are questable then, not only the law vs chaos ones but the good vs evil ones ? The quest I did was nicely layed out, thanks for the effort put into it.

The idea behind the quests is to SHIFT your alignment. So if you are currently Lawful Good and want to become Lawful Evil, you have to do the quest to be more evil twice. The first time you'll be become Lawful Neutral, the 2nd time you'll be Lawful Evil. Etc. So the four quests are there to help you become more good, or evil; more lawful, or chaotic.

Be aware that there are several mobs dealing with the alignment quests. Some move the law vs chaos components of alignment and the others the good vs evil component. The mob I dealt with only gave me an indication of what he was for half way through the quest. So read carefully before completing the quest.

It tells me that someone was told where to look and has passed the info on. I have no desire to run around the mud, asking every mob in sight about quests on the off chance that they may be the start of one, it may be relevant to me and it may not be broken.

Nobody was told, all mobs are in blatant plain sight, all are similar enough that if you find one, you'll recognize all the others. It's really not that hard. The quests are designed so that a 20th level character can do them.

If it were something that required a hint, one would be given.

I found 3 of the 4 mobs Eshacin without anyone telling me. This isn't a conspiracy.

Considering Adriorn figured out 3/4 of it with no help, sounds like you're putting more into bitching than trying yourself...

And I only say that because AD's about as thick as an Ogre on a good day...

Actually, you asked is there any info on where it started. The gods told you that it was already done, which means yes. Looks like they were pretty helpful to me.

Then, you complained they had god leaks. Then I laughed at you b/c you assumed they were god leaked when I ran past one of the mobs on the way from Faang to VT. Pretty sure I understood everything here.
