Dead Ends

Post by Pengy » Wed Mar 09, 2005 5:44 am

This thread is to build a list of dead ends. Please post anything you think is a dead end; stories, areas, anything. This is for anything where you feel the GMs have mysteriously stopped developing.

I'll be coming back to assemble one list which will stay posted here.

As you answer them I'll remove them from the list.

No chit chat please. Keep on topic.

Taken from an earlier thread of the same purpose and the Clanlord Quest Tracker group.

Noids parlour/<unpronouncable> weapons

Noth dark bubbling/blocked passage/Castle

OV underground passages - do they go anywhere?

Centaur hut

Magi - Who Where Why?

Alchemists Folly - Dead end

Kyeums... where do we put them, what are they for?

There is also the cave in pods...

Voolcons, they probably count as a mystery.

That area in north town beyond the pathfinding cave that seems to have a gate leading north is pretty mysterious too

locked doors in the Dark Temple.

The Brions probably count as a semi-dead end.

The Gi desert oasis isnt technically a dead end just dead in the water until somebody can find a clue.

What happened to Falinea?

Is there a reason for the changes to the mirror?

The Flower Tower on Di

Locked doors in Golden Butterfly Casino, Pucks Tavern and Healers Temple

How to become a follower of Gaia and gain temple access

Katpus and the catapult

The mining guild in the tunnels
A good pun is its own reword

Some others:

Blocked caves throughout Foothills.

Chamelopods, who is the "master", will he return?

Drake Den - why are these Fire Drakes slaughters? (no IC incentive to rescue people)

Greymyr Chief, and what the Greymyr think they are protecting.

Items with no known use: Skein of silk. Shiny medallion. Blue bauble. Herpetid hide.

Jade Noids cave, ends abruptly at a rock wall.

New East forest South edge has an apparent 1-way exit from somewhere unknown to the South ("your way is blocked by dense underbrush") - from Marsh? Savanna? new area?

North plains 1 East of the Chamelopod entrance - there is a treed-off sction (NW corner) that is un-enterable but looks like an area.

NPCs giving hints at, nothing? Cairo. Boondoggle. Torgo.

Original Mirror castle, and the places its mirrors led to. Are these just fading dreams or are they real places?

Pathfinding (gotta say it, although I think we are finally making real progress)

Sarra. no trace of Lady Sarra's final resting place.

Un-openned islands.

Wells in all 3 passes un-enterable despite having ladders.

What lies East of Dunes/Savanna/Passes/Northeast Forest/North Plains (other than Orga territory)?

Chiming in on Pods. I have (what I think is) some really good ideas for expanding Pods through that passage. Working this "master" in shouldn't be very hard. I'll share, if interested.
You know ... I have one simple request. And that is to have megamouths with freakin' laser beams attached to their heads!

What's with the "picnic spot" in the orga village? (Take the pf that goes to the area where you can see the noids and DP, go past through the pf to the northeast, and you come into a "safe" spot with a miniature verson of the HH purple bushes--Has anyone with the additional pf tried it?)

EP, including the infernel musical crystals ;).

Some of the NPCs who wander around town claiming the sky is falling and all. Get rid of the nonsensical NPCs or have them do something.

The sleeping NPC who dreams of nets (whatever his name is).

The rat farmer NPC.

Trool Town. It seems like a dead end to me.

I know it's not *necessarily* a dead end but, the Order of the Glove cave in S farms.
