Bulletin Board Quests.

This is a remake of an old quest system originally
introduced in 1997, and discontinued at the time
of Uo Renaissance.

How it works: Bulletin Boards are placed at Taverns
and Inns. (Exterior wall outdoors is preferred, some
indoor regions in shops etc. won't read regions properly).
The boards will pick up escorts and prisoners closest to
them and display a message. Town Escorts will give a
brief description with escorts name, destination, and
general direction from the board. example "I can be
found a fair distance northeast of here". Prisoner
messages will describe the type of horde (ratman,
lizardman, orc, brigand) and a sextant location. Players
can seek out these escorts instead of just going from
dock to dock. You will need to despawn all escorts, and
either use my Escort.xml file or setup new spawners on
your own. This system won't work properly if they all
hang-out at the same location <ie: Docks> Some slight
changes made by me include:
1. Nobles will now show a title of Nobleman or Noblewoman.
as they should. [BroadSword]
2. Seekers of Adventure ask to be escorted to random dungeons.
as they should. [BroadSword]
3. Prisoners will only ask to go to towns accessible by moongate,
to allow most players to handle them.
4. Peasants will only ask to go to towns accessible by moongate,
to allow most players to handle them.
5. Added escortable healer who only asks to go to towns with
healer shops.
6. Change escortable mage to only ask to go to towns with
mage shops.
7. Most won't ask to goto Magincia because there isn't anything
8. Escorts are suppose to pay 500 gold. ServUo its 500-1000. I
changed this to 500-750 for escort & 1000-1500 for prisoner.
9. Modified all escorts... to drop old school colored sandals.
with a 1% chance to drop a rarer hue on death, however if you
attack them they will spawn Mercenaries to aid them [BroadSword].
This will give some versitility to escorts if you have
non-roleplayers. The merceneries will self-delete after 20 mins.
so the shard can't become over-populated.
Escorts will delete from Bulletin Board as quest is completed.
Be sure to place all your Bulletin Boards before spawning or
re-spawning escorts and camps.
Place Bulletin Boards appropriately in your towns and place more
then one in larger areas, every 60 tiles. One at each tavern and or
Inn should cover it.
If you want to set a prisoner on a spawner make sure it looks like
**XmlSpawner: Noble/IsPrisoner/true
**Change the ones in Tram/Fel Orc Caves when you get a chance!!!
as well as the new Wrong Dungeon spawn has them in the jail cells
on level 2[BroadSword]. {These won't appear on BB's as they aren't
associated with a camp.}
Backup your files and merge or replace with these.
(*)If interested in making & adding new camps to this system
~be sure~ to do it on a duplicate server if you are not savvy with
