    Default The Bloody Crypy Broken?

    I ran all five Necropolis I quests on Elite. Later, I went back and repeated the first 4 quests, again on Elite (with a different friend). When I asked Loremistress Jinna to reset The Bloody Crypt so I could run it again, the game reset the 4 quests I just completed and did not reset The Bloody Crypt. Is this quest designed so it only works once or is it just broken?

    Unfortunately, thats working as designed.. You should of reset bloody before re-running the other 4.

    at least you had a friend with you so you could red box it. the end rewards suck anyway.

    Working as designed? Hmm. I very much enjoy this game, but it often seems the creation of enthusiastic High School students.

    I am not sure what "red box it" means. Oh well. We will skip it and play something else.

    red box is when you don't have the quest or in your case, weren't flagged to open Bloody Crypt because you didn't go back to the NPC to reset the chain after you completed Bloody Crypt the first time so your friend who did have the quest to open it allowed you entrance to the quest. i think i just typed a run on sentence. my English teacher just gave me an F. as long as someone is able to open the quest in your group, you can enter too if you don't have the quest. that's red box.
    Gary Gygax quotes

    The essence of a role-playing game is that it is a group, cooperative experience.

    There is no winning or losing, but rather the value is in the experience of imagining yourself as a character in whatever genre you are involved in, whether its a fantasy game, the Wild West, secret agents or whatever else. You get to sort of vicariously experience those things.

    Role-playing isn't storytelling. If the dungeon master is directing it, its not a game.

    When AI approximates Machine Intelligence, than many online and computer run RPGs will move toward actual RPG activity. Nonetheless, that will not replace the experience of "being there" anymore than seeing a theatrical motion picture can replace the stage play.

    The secret we should never let the game masters know is that they don't need any rules.

    Necropolis I advancement has always sucked. I have on numerous occasions accidentally restarted a quest only to screw up the flagging. At least I like the quest themselves.

    Not broken, not designed to be only run once.

    It's poorly designed, but works if you understand it. After running them all, you need to ask the Loremistress to reset BEFORE re-running the flagging quests.

    "Red-boxing" means entering a quest even if you do not have it bestowed, are on the wrong chapter, etc.. For most quests you can do this as long as someone else in the part has the quest.
