Being an RPG, Equilibrium of The Night contains a fair amount of side quests which can all be approached differently. Some of these quests are best suited for certain classes. For example melee type characters will obviously excel at "go here and kill this guy in close quarters" type quests whereas non-melee characters would likely struggle with such a quest without the proper companion help. Then you have stealthy-based characters who would excel at quests involving either assassination or breaking into a house to steal something. Naturally these type of quests can be completed by any other class but the later type would have to be approached differently by say a warrior who would likely alert the guards with their heavy armor and therefore would be forced to fight them.
Most quests have been designed so that their are numerous ways to complete them. In one quest you must retrieve an object that some geezer has. You can pick-pocket it from him if you have the appropriate skills, simply kill him and take the item, threaten him, pay him for the item or persuade him to give it to you. Choosing to kill him though means you will alert nearby characters to your crime who will then proceed to attack you so this can be a tricky option to take. However to avoid this, you can follow this character down a deserted alleyway where you can then proceed to kill him.
Quests can have negative conclusions too. Instead of just getting a "quest failed, you suck" journal entry, the quest will still be finished but there will be a negative conclusion which by itself can lead to a new quest or major consequence. This is especially the case with a certain quest-line where if you fail to save a village from a cult threat, you end up tortured (and scared) and the cult manages to destroy half the village before a wandering hero manages to stop them alone and save the day. Although you do benefit from this scenario still by gaining extra experience due to what you did that led to your torture.
And that's another thing, you're not the only hero in this world, there will be several other heroes who might complete quests you fail. The hero mentioned above can turn up in another quest if you start "failing" the objectives...that is only if you don't decide to murder him in the first instance he shows up in.
