    Title: Jeanne Doesn't Offer Her Quest
    Reproduction Rate: 100%
    Blocker? Maybe? Not if you're an experienced player who knows the go-arounds, but perhaps for newbies

    Details: Jeanne does not have any identifiable keywords to tell newbies about her quest.

    She mentions the necklace briefly in response to "help" -- which beginners won't know to do, since "help" isn't listed as a keyword. But she speaks as if the necklace were just lost, and doesn't say anything about a grave robber, nor does she offer the quest, despite having sparkly hands. She does give the quest if you specifically ask about "necklace", but again, it's not listed or underlined as a keyword and newbies won't know there are hidden keywords. They can find out more from the sign in the graveyard, but by the time they're over there, they'll probably end up killing the Suspicious Character before they ever get the quest. In order to get the quest, newbies have to identify two hidden keywords in a row (first "help", then "necklace").

    Also #1: Stanley mentions the grave robber vaguely but says nothing about Jeanne, and the journal entry reminding people of what Stanley told them says nothing about Jeanne or the grave robber. So again, a newbie would have no way of knowing there was a quest here to try to get.

    The quest was changed recently and now starts by killing the suspicious character at the graveyard in the evening. There’s notes directing you in the graveyard as well, for someone looking for a necklace.

    Sounds like there's some opportunity for dialogue improvement here. Issue #68958
