A large portion of Fairytale Games is based on Quests. Essentially, you don’t have to do any quests to win a game, but it will be extremely difficult to do so. Completing quests will:
- Give you Reputation Points
- Can give you items, weapons, random bonus cards
- May start off other quests that will lead to greater rewards
- May introduce you to new NPCs or help you find certain characters
- May reward you with trait bonuses (the more difficult the quest, the greater the rewards)
What is a “Reputation Point?”
You will get these to add to your Player Board when you complete quests. Unlike trait points, you don’t normally “spend” these on items, actions, or abilities. But, you may need a certain number of Reputation before being allowed to move to certain locations, initiate specific quests, or even use certain items! Reputation points might also allow you to interact with certain NPCs or give you different rewards when you react with them. You can also lose reputation points when you do certain things (like if you backstab an aligned player on a quest). Items, Events, or Action cards may find a way to affect your reputation point totals as well.
There are also 3 types of Quests you can initiate in the game:
- Basic Quests
- Boss Quests
- Character Quests
A Basic quest can be initiated by anyone. This is a great way to gain reputation points, earn bonus cards, and small rewards like trait points. Basic Quests overall, introduce the Fairytale Games land characters and storyline.
A Boss Quest requires a specific number of reputation before being able to initiate. Boss quests start off with one or two initial quests that must be completed before eventually encountering the Boss. Bosses are usually very difficult to fight against and will greatly benefit if you have allies in your party or if you ally yourself with another player.
- Allying with other players on quests – When doing so, players will be able to both fight against the boss and any minions they might have. If one player is killed in battle, the battle still continues unless the remaining players choose to escape. When a battle is won, all players who have survived will divvy up the rewards. If there is a discrepancy or players cannot come to an agreement on how rewards are to be divided, then they must battle to solve their differences or a player may kill the another player to take all of the rewards. Rewards include trait points, bonus cards, and quest cards. Reputation points are rewarded to everyone who survive the boss battle.
Rewards for Boss Quests are much greater than Basic Quests and can range from more powerful items, weapons, larger amounts of trait bonuses, allies, abilities, or the ability to search for a specific quest.
There is only one character quest per character in the game, though there may be multiple parts of the quest, making this a very rare quest to pull. You can “barter” this quest with other players if you have someone else’s Character Quest (almost like you bartering information to someone in real life).
There are two ways that Character Quests are initiated, as Personal Quests or Side Quest. As a Character Quest you must be using the said character as your main character to initiate the quest for the character quest reward. If you make another character your main character any time during Questing Mode, then the quest defaults to Side Quest. Likewise if you initiate the quest as a character other than the said character. This alludes to characters in your party having their own objectives when they lead your party.
PERSONAL QUEST: If you initiate and complete the quest this way, Character Quests will help your character “level up”, giving them new abilities, increased health stats, movement, better battle stats or an item that can be a game changer if equipped or used. These types of quest are quite difficult because of your time limit in the game (30 days) as well as some of the resources you’ll need to complete objectives might be limited.
SIDE QUEST: As a Side Quest, you do not need the character in your party at all. It could very well be an opposing player’s character that this is for. If you complete the quest this way, your reward may be generic, or if you are that character’s ENEMY (it will state on the card), you will receive a different reward that will either be strong against that character or a great bargaining chip that they will want.
