The Habitica Quests Trello Board is a feature tracker board hosted on Trello, where writers can easily submit quest scripts and ideas for feedback, discussion, alterations and eventual inclusion in Habitica. It can be found at trello.com/b/nnv4QIRX/habitica-quests.
READ FIRST ColumnEdit
The leftmost column of cards contains instructions and information for quest writers, etiquette for the Quests Trello board and an area for group brainstorming of new quest ideas. If you have questions about the process for writing quests, ask them there.
Guidelines for Writing QuestsEdit
- Quest descriptions should be in English, and limited to 100 words or less when possible.
- When suggesting XP and gold rewards, look at other quests with similar difficulties and value your quests accordingly.
- Try to write a quest description for existing quest requests and unpurposed artwork before creating a brand new quest; sometimes a great picture just needs an amazing quest description in order to be released.
Quest Writing ColumnsEdit
The remaining columns are used for the submission, discussion, and brainstorming of the different types of quests: Equipment Quests (Collection or Boss Quests), Pet Quests, and Random Encounters. Each column of cards has its own guidelines with its own current quest projects.
The quest projects are organized as quest lines. In each quest line, there are scripts for each part of the quest line (e.g., The Tide Trident Questline has Part 1: The Dilatory Distress and Part 2: Creatures of the Crevasse). Along with the quest idea submissions and discussions, an abundance of pixel art can be found that are connected with them; when creating a new quest, it is important to think about that pixel art that will inevitably go with it if your submission is accepted.
Equipment quests typically have at least two stages, and one stage is typically a collection quest with the other stage(s) being boss quests. The player receives a GP and XP bonus for completing each stage. Once they finish the last stage, they also receive a piece of equipment.
Random encounters are one-stage quests where only XP is rewarded.
Quest Script SelectionEdit
Decisions about which quest writing submission to use are left until right before the quest is about to be implemented. If your submission is chosen, you will be tagged on the Trello card.
