Contracts & Tasks are quests in the world of Stoneshard. All Quests are automatically tracked by the game, you can check their status in your Journal at any time. Clicking an entry in your Journal will set it as your active Quest and the current objective step will be displayed in the top left section of the screen while adventuring.



Main Quest

Main quests track your progress through the game's story. Your character starts the game with the main quest already active. There are currently two main quests in the Early Access version of the game.

Escape the Dungeon is the main quest for the Prologue.

Gathering the Caravan is the main quest for the story for the Adventure Mode.


Contracts

Village Contracts are the "official business" type of quests.

  • They are always tied to a specific village or town and only provided by the village elder.
  • Village Contracts have a time limit in which you have to complete it.
  • If you fail to complete the contract in the time limit, the contract is voided, you get no rewards and you lose some Reputation with the village.
  • Contracts must be turned in to the village elder who issued it after completion.
  • Completing a contract raises your Reputation with the village and always comes with a fixed reward in Crowns.

The objective may require you free a captive person, bring back a stolen item, or simply clear out a Dungeon. Sometimes you will be required to bring a proof of your deed.


Contract Mechanics

Offered contracts are randomly selected from a list of possible Contracts each reset. Each contract is tied to a dungeon and will reset every 4 in-game days. Each elder have up to 3 contracts one after another. One of each type of enemy factions/dungeon

Each contract is tied to a specific Dungeon on the map. When you set a contract as your active quest, the Dungeon in question will become marked with a small red X on your Local Map. Until you complete a contract by turning it in to the village elder, you can enter the Dungeon as many times as you want. Completing the contract will seal the respective dungeon's entrance, so you will be unable to enter until the reset.

Tasks

Individual NPCs might offer you quests specific to their own life.

  • The rewards for these requests can vary, from Crowns to Consumables and other items.
  • Tasks have no time limit.
  • Completing Tasks raises your Reputation with the Quest Giver's respective town or village.


Task Mechanics

Offered tasks are always the same. All tasks can only be completed once.

  • When you select a task as your active quest, no marker will be displayed on your map.
  • When you accept the Troll Hunt task, the Signal Tower Point of Interest will be permanently marked on your map until you complete it, even if you don't have Troll Hunt selected as your active quest.
  • Some tasks might require finding items that can be only acquired as random drops, therefore completing some tasks might take a long time.

Governor's Contract

Checkbox.png Talk to the Governor of Mannshire

The governor of Mannshire needs a mercenary for some special contract. I don't know any details yet, so it would be a good idea to head to Mannshire Castle and discuss it in person. No reward, just leads the player to the Troll Hunt task.
Herbalist for Mannshire Checkbox.png Find the Hermit's Hut

Most of the Mannshire garrison perished during a desperate attempt to liberate the tower - if the news of it reaches Brynn, Weber is done for.

Right now his only hope is that I somehow manage to kill the beast on my own. The chances are slim, but I'm feeling lucky.

Jousting Cloak

The following Tasks can be found in Brynn:

Task Steps Description Reward
A "Fee" for the Official

Checkbox.png Earn Two Thousand Crowns
Checkbox.png Return to Keremit in the Evening

Bribery was invented in Brynn, or so the saying goes. Seems plausible: Keremit Lawe, the Guild's bailiff at the leatherworks, is willing to sell me some under the counter gear, but only after I pay him two thousand crowns. You can buy leatherworks from him in the evening.
Bribing the Bailiff

Checkbox.png Find a Ruby
Checkbox.png Return to Noel in the Evening

Some Brynn officials have grown so complacent that they refuse to take bribes in gold.

Noel vir Roan, the bailiff at the carpentry workshop, will not settle for less than a precious gem: a good-sized ruby should get me access to some of the gear they make for the city.

You can buy woodworks from him in the evening.
City of Gold & Corruption

Checkbox.png Find the Required Items
Checkbox.png Return to Giles

Giles vir Ivet, the Guild's bailiff at the blacksmithing workshop, was agreeable enaugh to promise me access to some of the... surplus goods.

All I have to do in return is to find a few items to liven up his desk: a gold candelabrum and an ornate inkpot. I'll also need to bring a bottle of elven ice wine to sweeten the deal.
You can buy blacksmithing goods from him in the evening.
