Welcome to Painted Relics!

Here is a small set of quests that will help you find your way around the site and everything that the site entails!
By completing this prompt, it will unlock another starter quest for you to complete. This works as essentially your tutorial for playing the game.

You can only complete these starting quests once.


To fulfill this first quest, take this crossword puzzle HERE, fill it out, and submit a link of it filled out back to us!
My recommendation is to use google drive, or similar site that will allow you to upload your image to link it to this prompt.

Please DO NOT share your answers with other users.

This allows for everyone to learn to find things on the site!

Conkering Kyvalore

Conker-folk of the world, unite!

Details

As the leaves begins to fall, the ground becomes littered with autumn’s finest commodity; conkers. Hidden in their spiky shells, their oddly shaped brown innards are perfect for creating a bunch of strange and wonderful conker-crafts, from animal shaped crafts to accessories for your autumn wardrobe.

 

Draw or write about your character creating something with conkers. Do they collaborate with someone? What sorts of games do they get up to?

Fall Colours

Time For Cromch

Details

Autumn has come, and with it, the beautiful, fiery colors of leaves as the trees prepare to shed their verdant crowns for the winter ahead. As the leaves fall, they create a beautiful carpet on the forest floor—or the paved streets of a city—and that carpet…well, crunches. It’s a beautifully satisfying sound, fleeting but so enjoyable.

Draw or write about your character playing in the fallen leaves, going for a walk to admire the colors, or otherwise enjoying the outdoors as the leaves change!

---------------------

Weeks have passed since your trip to the island of dread and it's guardian of shadow. Even now, when your guard slips for but a moment, you think you can feel it's eyes upon you. You had brought back the relic the shadow had been presiding over, a broken skull of unknown origins, and given it to Modeus for study. Having mostly shaken off the feelings of that bitter island, it seemed like a lingering bad dream, and things have returned to normalcy. A small knock graces your door. A letter has arrived for you, in a rich brown envelope sealed by intricate wax. Despite it's small and thin profile, you can feel the weight in it as you break the seal.

Salutations,
I hope this letter finds you in fair weather and jolly spirits. An interesting commotion has arrived and I hope to ask for your assistance for one additional task, loathe as I am to inquire so. I do hope our working relationship is well enough to allow your cooperation, for it is quite urgent.
The next few lines had scratch marks and blocks around some of the words, as if it was revised as he was writing it. Either he hadn't wanted to write out a new letter, or had written many already. I was investigating a new avenue of research out in the forests of the Letan Ruins, east of Lanris, you see. A dive into the connection between the World Spirit and the mana of living beings, quite fascinati. In tow I carried that strange artifact you brought to me. I sensed something lingering within, and have been here and there trying to find anything that may stoke it's nascent mana into exposing its secrets. While investigating the forest I was atta
 
I was attacked by a creature of amazing strength and ferocity. I was overpowered, and had to retreat by using the lunch as bait to lure it away. It resides in the forest still, and I need you to hunt it. It will hurt people if it isn't stopped. Please come to Lanris at your earliest convenience to setout for the ruins, I can send a carriage your way immediately. Come prepared.
And when you go, please try not to hurt the poor boy, would you?
Modeus


---------------------


This is a main story quest!
Unlike most quests this one is not a multiple choice!
In this quest you will explore the Letan Ruins to hunt for a beast.

You must have your character at a location to participate in the quest. However participating in this quest will move your character to Lanris.

In doing this quest, you are risking your safety and have a chance of becoming infected.
But by helping catch the lurking evil, you may be able to find out more about what lies under the surface of the corrupted mana.

Also unlike most story quests, this quest is repeatable!

Kyvalore’s fate rests within your story.

 

Draw or write about your character exploring the Letan Ruins in hunt of whatever attacked Modeous. How afraid of the dark are they when things surely DO go bump in the night? Do they find anything of use? What noises do they hear? Are there other things lurking about in the ruins they find useful or interesting?

 

Drawing Requirements:
A fullbody character, and an advanced background

Writing Requirements:
1500 words

Please submit you quest with standard shard breakdown for your work in the comments!

The Weary Merchant

Details

Upon perusing the wares of the shops you stumble upon a merchant with the strangest stock. Upon his table, covered in dust and dirt from age, lay artifacts of an age long past. Towers of old handpainted pots, weapons of all shapes and sizes, and relics with unreadable runes. Two things that stand out to you, almost beckiningly are a few strange coins with old runes and a uneasy aura of magic around them, and a few small stone bird statues that could fit in the palm of your hand.


Draw or write about your character perusing this odd shop and obtaining one(1) of these two items.


This is a story quest for characters who did not previously gain either the strange coin or the bird statuette in a previous quest OR if you obtained an item and would like to use this prompt to now trade the item for the other if that character has not yet entered the Grave Isle or the Aetherin Forest.

While this quest does not affect the story of Kyvalore like other Story quests, this quest lets you get an item needed so you can participate in a current story quest or an item that lets your character gather rewards.


Drawing Requirements:

A partial body character, the cloaked traveler, and an advanced background

Writing Requirements:

800 words

Please submit it with standard shard breakdown for your work in the comments as well as let us know which item to grant you!

Details

This quest does not require a location for your character to participate!

This is a legacy quest! This means this was a previous part of the ongoing story of Painted Relics so while what your characters do in this part of the story dont affect the next chapter, you can still participate to gain some previous rewards, and to place your character into kyvalores story.

 While going about your busy day, your eyes catch something among the street. Nothing seemed particularly interesting about it, and if you were being honest, it looked like a scrap of paper that was tossed aside intended for the trash, and yet.. You reach for it. Feel it on your paws and glance over it. Strange markings and runes decorate the page that you’ve seen only on ancient relics, but not any known language to any living Kyvalorian you know.
Something about it feels… enticing. Like a strange invitation that speaks to the deepest parts of your soul. A desire to know what it says, understand it, speak it…
A whisper enters your mind, a callous tone about it. A feeling of dread overwhelms you. Something about this magic that pulses from the scrap you now hold feels wrong, tainted somehow. The parchment is speaking to you in words you cannot understand, it’s voice harsh, crackling, and growling. Words that cannot be translated and yet you feel that if you listen long enough you’ll be able to decipher at least the meaning of the words.


Draw or wrtie about your character finding this strange parchment. How do they react?

Listen to the Words
Destroy the Parchment
Turn in the Parchment to a City Leader or Official
