    How can we give rewards within ink / npcs with dialogs?

    Im using a public cache at the moment with a bit of an honesty system. I have not done too much digging to see with the limits of Inky, My Quest/Assignment so far is quite simple. The NPC will tell you to collect an item out of a nearby public cache.

    Will see how things develop for additional quests/assignments I do :)

    Maybe drop the debug line from your posts, it makes it bit harder to see the location ;)

    Still testing my NPC, will post the location once I have some quest ready.

    Location:
    Ardoris
    If anyone is passing through Ardoris, I have an NPC out front of my house with a complete set of conversation options. Let me know if u run into any logic issues, but I think it sounds pretty organic and in the spirirt of the world.

    Follow the town crier’s directions straight past the oracle and past the tailor.
