You already have the answer, you just don't know it. )

Quests. You would create a Quest for each of your sub-adventures and then use Logic Block or Utilities or GPDL scripts (all 3 work equally well) t determine if a given Quest is in progress, completed, failed, etc.

Dungeon Craft - FAQs & Knowledge / Re: Questions about DC
« Last post by Milos Gulan on Today at 09:31:46 AM »
I have been thinking about this for some time and I think it might be better to just ask:

I have been preparing GH campaign and i have come to a place where there is several adventures possible, meaning characters are advancing over level 8 and there are still lots of adventures to be done and there is no time. This means those adventures have to be done by lower level characters while main adventures are on the main quest.

How this can be done?

For example group have characters that are playing Greyhawk Castle, they make another characters when they get bored of those that they play (it is not easy to play one class for a long time) and lets say are called by mayor of GH and they are offered few quests alongside other heroes who volontered. For example to find Dragotha dracolich's lair, to go on adventures against giants (Queen of spiders campaign), ect. Those quests needs to be played in game because city of GH is under threat.

Now how can this be done in DC. I know it is a bit too much to make but potentialy I would like to see it done. Now lets say my first party is on the main quest and they have just killed lich in GH castle and come to GH city where stones started to rain and really bad weather. After some divination they need to head to north where they will battle another lich but much stronger this time who is causing this.

Now on the other hand there are other adventures for lower level characters that still can be played. Would it be possible to save those first party characters and switch to other party (they can be pregen NPCs) and form it to be under command of first party. And maybe have few more of parties like that they are under command of the first party.

That was my idea. Just asking if something like that would be possible?

In my mod I play with one main character and others are PC pregens that are changing, but still I would like to change leading character (if he becomes too high level) and play with other low level party and to be able to return to my leading character. That is about it.

Thanks, yes. The FRUA version is still progressing (very) slowly (and is much further along than the DC version was). The DC version is currently on hold, but if I ever finish the FRUA version then I will return to it. When I was last working on the DC version, database and script editing was at a more primitive stage (no criticism intended; just observing that it has moved forward since then) and I think I would probably need to pretty well re-start the scripting and database changes, starting from the latest version of the DC databases and default scripts.

Hi, Steve. :D

Depending on how long ago you were last working on your DC project, you may have to significantly update your databases. I have several pet projects that I have had to restart a number of times because it is often easier to do it that way than to try and cath all of the changes. Interestingly, this doesn't apply as much to the special abilities database, as we far more often than not are adding to the SA database instead of changing the way it works.

I still have not done anything but I finaly have idea what to do :). Now I will have to work on it.

What I have did is that I have collected my DS files and I am just happy that I have got everything before RuntimeDNA went down. Now I need to sort and make something of it and to download more older things that are free and good. Things are really going fast and well I need to thank Manikus that I have got all those things before they were deleted. Now I will try to focus and make something with it and work more serious with DC. I am still hoping that I will have something till new year.

Finishing things is what I need to work on, but yeah starting smaller might be good idea. I was thinking of restarting my own but will keep on working on it and maybe will try one more GH.

Anyway I would like to see DC DL mod and would offer my help if it is going to happen :) Steve is really good at it I think and I probably could learn something. But I better start working on my own :D

At one point, Steve McDonald was going to work on a Dragonlance conversion of DC, but I haven't seen any mention of this in a while. If you want to start a thread asking for that ability - I guess a script/feature request - I would be happy to take a look and see if I can figure it out. :)

I believe to remember Steve decided to do that project in FRUA... But his layout for the DC version looked great!
