Alongside a main storyline and a bunch of complimentary quests, Fortune’s Tavern boasts a random quest system that allows for indefinite gameplay. Through the NPC rumour system the player can learn about several different types of quests:
Dungeon delve for items. Items can be anything from a Mythril Frying Pan to a Apron of Speechcraft, and once retrieved will add a permanent bonus to either a personal skill, the tavern’s alignment, or the renown owed to Fortune’s Tavern by a specific type of visitor.
Kill a nearby boss! Bosses are NPC characters, either good or bad, that have gained a certain amount of enemies. Kill them and Fortune’s Tavern will see an increase in visitors.
Recipe finding. Recipes can grant huge bonuses to your tavern although you can only have one active at a time. Finding a recipe can be very dangerous work and usually requires the assistance of more than one hero.
Rob a rival tavern. Sometimes Mathias will hear a rumour that a rival tavern owner has a particularly large sum of gold lying around. When this happens players can choose to enter the rival place of business and try to rob them.
Below is a video of the quest menu and an ‘impossible’ boss fight. Joining Mathias in the battle are two medium level heroes hired from the tavern.
