Tasks

For players who are actively roleplaying there are various non-player 
characters (NPCs) throughout Distant Lands that desire a wide variety of tasks 
be done for them. Any NPC with a task available to you will be denoted by 
(task master) when you look or enter a room. Each specific task may only be 
accepted by an individual or the leader of a group. Each player may only 
participate in 1 task at a time and each task can only have 1 player 
(or group of players) at a time, so if there are multiple players interested 
in the same task (and they have not formed a group) or even a task from the 
same task master this may affect which options are available. 

Additionally, not all tasks are available to all players, typically they are 
limited by character level or some other factor. It is also worth noting that 
some items are considered to be part of the task, that is to say, they do not 
exist outside of the task. If you have one of these items at the end of a task 
(because of expired time, for example) it will automatically disappear.

When you note an NPC with (task master), you can view a list of which
tasks the NPC has available to you by using the task command:

> tasks

The following tasks are currently available to you:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
1) Rid the Garden of a Fire Ant
2) Get a Fresh Fish for a Small Boy's Kitten
3) Retrieve a Black Rose for Krantz
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

To see more detailed information about a specific task, use the reference
number to the left of the task name, for example:

> task 1

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Rid the Garden of a Fire Ant - Task #1
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Task Description:
   Several citizens and many that rent a room from me for the night have
been bothered by a huge fire ant that roams in the opal garden. I have
told the knights of Turien of this problem. The knights are to busy with
their normal duties to go and find the ant and kill it. If you feel that
you can rid the city and gardens of this pest we would all be most
thankful.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Task Rewards:
20 Gold coins
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Maximum time to complete task:  60 game hours
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Once you have reviewed the available tasks, if there is one you wish to
accept (and you are not a follower in a group), you use the same reference 
number to accept the task as follows:

> task accept 1

You have accepted task #1 - Rid the Garden of a Fire Ant.
You have 60 game hours to complete this task.

If you are the group leader, you accept the task for the entire group.
Group members can be removed and sometimes added while on a task, but
the game may restrict who can be a member of your group. You are highly
encouraged to form your group before trying to find a task, that way
if you see (task master) you know the entire group is eligible to
participate in the task. If you are the member of a group (and not the
leader) you can leave the task at any time by leaving the group. When
tasking as a group, all members of the group currently in the game
receive the reward upon completion.

Some tasks may award a level as a prize, they will not award a level
for any player who is ready for a quest. That is to say, the levels that
require you to quest cannot be substituted with a task.

After having accepted a task, your RP timer will not expire until 
you are no longer on the task. You can review the task description,
reward, and time remaining by using the task command as follows:
