* ...
* step N

Content: Detailed Walkthrough

  • Describe the full quest with detail
  • Use your writing skills to entertain the reader
  • Add images to show where to go, who to talk or what to do
  • Add screenshots of the dialogs

Content: Enemies

  • Add templates of the main quest enemies
  • Add links to other possible enemies as additional information

Content: Logbook

  • Add logbook images! Always!
  • If the logbook text is too long, as as many screenshots as needed
    • This should mean two screenshots, needing three of them would be strange
    • If more than three are needed, ask first in the forum!!

    • Try to keep when possible the same aspect ratio

  • Do NOT change the shown size specified in the quest template
    • You should remove the size tag only if the size is exactly the same
  • You can clip your images down, but don't clip too much
    • 800x600 is ok for map and tabmap images
    • 1024x768 is ok for general camera images
    • dialogs must be clipped to their exact size (like this one)

    • This can vary depending on the image, apply common sense
    • Images should not be bigger than 200 Kb
    • Images can be GIF for dialogs
    • GIF means max.256 colors: use it wisely!
