"Mysterious Vial"
« on: August 22, 2005, 07:08:06 AM »

***1) No one is interested in the "Vials of mysterious fluid" you get from the Nashkel mines. You'd think that at least Thalantyr or the fellow at the Sorcerous Sunderies would be interested in it's alchemey.***

I kept thinking I wasn't doing something right when I went to the mayor.  "We explored the mines and found out that you were being sabotaged!  An evil cleric was in the bowels of the mine, along with a horde of kobolds.  They were poisoning the ore, and THIS is what they were doing it with!"

Everytime I talked to him I would check my inventory and see that the vials were still there.  Having seen on other occasions that items could be extracted from my inventory by the game, I finally decided it was a bug, and just dropped them as if he had taken them.

It would make sense to me that they would serve as proof that you had not only been in the mines but actually found the problem, and hadn't simply been drinking in a tavern for the past week before asking for reward money.  At the least, they should help serve as a base for someone to find an "antidote" to this "poison".

"Mysterious Vial"
« Reply #1 on: February 06, 2006, 11:22:40 PM »
This is one of the main things that has bugged me about the original game.  You find several of these bottles, but no one anywhere gives a fuck about them.  Not even half-fucks, quarter-fucks, missionaries, doggy-styles, reverse cowgirls, or Italian chandeliers.

The easiest way I can think to do something about this is to have the mayor of Nashkel say "oh, looky, this is the culprit.  I'll take it off your hands." 

A Cromwellian approach would be for Taerumorwhateverhisnameis to take the vial and combine it with... something... to make... something else.  Or Thalantyr, only to make a magical item.

But these scenarios might be too clichι.  Any ideas from the audience?

Is this the complete quest?  If so, rock on!
Will add it when I get home.  :)

OK, had a chance to actually read it.  It all sounds very good.

I did have one question, though.  After giving the vial to Thalantyr, is there any kind of follow-up?  Granted, it's fine as it is, as at least you can now get rid of the crap from the mine.

The intention was that it'll have a percentage reduction on the chance of weapons breaking, but that'll only work in Tutu.

Sim, I've made the changes to the filename references for Tutu.  Are there any other changes you'd like to make to this quest?
