None of those ideas really stand out, and you're offering too many options. Execution's the most important part anyway. Things like engaging characters, interesting situations, good pacing, etc. You're better off just picking one and making it interesting and fun. With the right approach, you can make a quest about nearly any topic fun.

Yeah, but Steve Jobs wrote that focusing means abandoning 100 other good options and innovation means abandoning 1000 other good options. It seems that you need another 10 000 bad ideas to get one good option and thus I can't execute a quest this way.

You'll also notice Steve Jobs is dead.

You're overthinking it. For making a good quest, you need good improvisational storytelling/gamemastering skills far, far more than you need the perfect idea.

I've been a GM/story teller in Neverwinter Nights for years but I learned nothing.
No. 55834 ID: c4a1fc

I think either you already knew it or you did and didn't realize it. I've only been a GM for a short while and I've already learned a lot.

All the previous options. 51, always a good idea.

If I may offer a suggestion? Most of the updates you put out for your quests are usually 'Stuff happens stuff happens stuff happens, should I do this or this?'
While a quest does essentially boil down to 'stuff happened, what do?' you don't really have to ask that question each update or limit the suggesters to only a few options. I suggest you should see how other quests end their updates and try to pick up on that.
