Task QOL updates

Post by Rias » Fri Mar 20, 2020 2:37 pm

Made some quality-of-life updates to the task system today:

- A task hub's task listing now notes experience and pay rewards for each task.
- Taking tasks from task hubs now includes a confirm step in which details of the task are given, providing an opportunity to learn more about the task before deciding whether to accept it.
- Delivery task names are now more informative about where the delivery is meant to go.
- The LIST (or BROWSE) command now functions as the TASK LIST command when used in a task hub. (Unless there's also shop present, in which case it will list shop items as normal.)
task list
The following tasks are available to you:

Long-Distance Delivery to Blackwater Trading Post in Blackwater Logging Camp (1,000 riln, 500 experience)
Clean Stables (100 riln, 100 experience)
Clean Street Lamps (150 riln, 150 experience)
Local Delivery to Mine Entrance in Shadgard (25 riln, 25 experience)

If you would like to consider taking one of these tasks and get more info, type task take <task>
Example: task take Clean Street Lamps
(Note: You can specify any word in the task name, you don't have to type the whole thing out.)

task take blackwater
You consider taking the following task:

Task: Long-Distance Delivery to Blackwater Trading Post in Blackwater Logging Camp

If you'd like to accept this task, take the task again within the next 30 seconds.
An assistant introduces a lanky brooding-eyed woman with tan skin to you as Karen and assigns you to treat her wounds.
>tend karen
You try to tend to Karen, but she is too hysterical to accept treatment!
