    Updating to BetonQuest 1.9? Read this.
    BetonQuest is advanced and powerful quests plugin. It offers RPG-style conversations with NPCs and a very flexible quest system. Instead of being limited to creating "quest" objects with taking requirements and rewards upon completion, BetonQuest allows you to freely define what should happen (events), if it should happen (conditions) and what needs to be done for it to happen (objectives). Your quests don't have to look like "kill, bring, get reward": you can create multi-threaded stories, narrated with NPC conversations, with multiple endings affecting the player's gameplay in many ways.

    Overview

    Imagine you have a conversation with an NPC. You can choose from multiple options, and the NPC will react differently, for example he will tell you to cut some trees when asked for a job. If you tell him that you accept his offer, an event will be fired. It will start an objective for getting wood. It will also "tag" you as someone who started the quest. From now on the NPC will check for that tag, and use different options in the conversation, for example telling you to hurry up.

    When you complete the objective (by breaking wood blocks), the objective will fire another event. This one will "tag" you as someone who collected the wood. When you go back to the NPC and tell him about it, he will check (using a condition) if you actually have the wood in your inventory. If so, he will fire another event, giving you the reward.

    There was no single "quest" object. This was only a conversation, which was firing events and checking conditions. The objective also wasn't a "quest" - it only added a tag when you collected the wood, nothing more. It could not exist on it's own. The same conversation on the other hand could start some other quests afterwards (for example mining some ore), so it's also not a "quest".

    Don't be disappointed by my examples of getting wood and mining ore. These were only simplifications, so it's easier to explain the system. BetonQuest is capable of much more. You can add entries to player's journal based on the quests he's doing like in Morrowind, the conversations can be as multi-threaded as in Baldur's Gate and quests can be started by entering specific location like in Skyrim. You can create reputation systems, unique quest items, books that react to reading them and so on. Your quests can have multiple ways to different endings depending on players' decisions and they can require multiple players to do something.

    You don't have to use BetonQuest for quests only. Conversations with NPCs can help your players, teleports them around the map, describe server features, buy or sell stuff, give ranks etc. The only limit is your imagination!

    Documentation
    Documentation in PDF format

    Video guide (really outdated)

    (Note that the author incorrectly uses objectives. In the objective event you have to specify name of the objective, not the whole instruction. The instruction goes to objectives.yml file. Still, this tutorial is better than 1.6 outdated version.)


    Metrics
    BetonQuest uses metrics system to send anonymous data to bStats.org. It can be disabled in config.yml file in bStats folder, just set "enabled" to false.

    Auto-updater
    BetonQuest features auto-updater. You can enable/disable this by setting "update.enabled" to true/false in configuration file. By default BetonQuest will download all bugfixes automatically but ask you before updating to a next major version. The plugin will backup all your data before each update and create changelog file. You will also receive a notification about the update when you join the server.

    Development builds
    Development builds of BetonQuest can be acquired here. These builds have not been well tested and may contain a lot of bugs. Use them at your own risk!

    BetonQuest Editor

    If you want to make your life as a quest writer easier (and support me with a little donation), you can buy the dedicated editor here. It's way better than editing the files directly with Notepad. Currently I'm adding more advanced features like instruction editor. You can see the progress on GitHub ^^

    Check out BetonQuestUploader, a bridge between the editor and the plugin. It allows you to let many users design quests without access to FTP.

      Niestety nie. Dokumentacja ma 60 stron i przetłumaczenie tego zajęłoby mi ze 3 dni. A później musiałbym utrzymywać dwie wersje równolegle. Wybacz, ale po prostu nie jestem w stanie tego zrobić.

    Sir, I don't know why you did not get any dumbass 1, 2 stars rating "It don't work", ... Maybe this freaking awesome plugin is too hard for them, even not think about download. I can't explain how much I love this plugin. In my non-keep server, I can give PK player a PK tag that no NPC want to trade with them again. They must do a quest to be forgiven. Now all of my player prefer PK then do this quest than the main story. Anyway, keep up the good work man !!!

    Wonderful plugin, although it is of course "just" a tool and you will need to put a lot of work in your quests to use its full potential.

    Version: 1.9
    Best quest (and not only quest!. I use some features for scheduling server tasks, in example) plugin. Many features included (you can make almost everything you want and check nearly everything, when creating your quests), and continious updates which brings new options. Dedicated editor and uploader applications. Fast responce from author. Oh... forgot to mention: plugin very stable :)
