Keeping Track of Your Quests (Quest Journal/Log)
« on: July 27, 2010, 12:47:08 AM »

It's been bugging me for awhile now that sometimes, I forget what side-quests I started when I come back to do them later. It wouldn't hurt to have a quest log, that would have all the uncompleted side-quests started, a short summary of each side-quest, as well as having the main quest in it.

That's true; you aren't always sure which ones you've done yet, especially if you have more than one character.

Right now there are so few quests that it doesn't seem needed, but as the game progress, then it will seem necessary.

PS "Quest log" is a lame name.

I certainely agree with the idea, I hate not knowing which quests I have/haven't done.

PS "Quest log" is a lame name.
I think he just couldn't bear the thought of completely accepting a new idea.  :P

I like this idea, but the "Quest log" name has been done to death.  Unlike Glares, I like enough of this idea to build upon it.

I assume that by criticizing the name "Quest Log", you have a better idea in mind?

Well... A quest log is not unlogical, as it could exist inside the game.

I can't think of any other names aside from journal. That's probably more common that quest log.

Hmm. Good idea Cypher. But I agree with im2smart4u on the name.
