- Main article: Guidance for Storytellers
The Habitica Quests Trello Board is a Feature Tracker board 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 Column
The leftmost column of cards contains instructions and information for prospective Storytellers, etiquette for the Quests Trello board, and a group brainstorming area for new quest ideas. If you have questions about the process for writing quests, ask them there.
Quest Writing Columns
The remaining columns are used for the submission, discussion, and brainstorming of the different types of quests: Potion Quests, Mini-Bosses, Equipment Quests (Collection or Boss Quests), and Random Encounters. Each column has one or more cards with guidelines and current quest projects specific to that column.
Quests are usually based on pre-existing art, and pixel art is attached to each new quest card. It is important to think about the pixel art when writing for a quest.
Mini-bosses are based on themes such as Work, Exercise, Health + Wellness, School, Chores, Teams and Creativity.
Equipment quests typically have two or three stages. 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.
Due to the high volume of Equipment Quests in the queue, we are not currently accepting any more Equipment Quests for the time being. Be sure to check out the Potion Quest and Mini-Boss cards instead!
Random encounters are one-stage quests where only XP is rewarded. These quests may be implemented in a future feature.
