The Quest System:
There are 3 places in town you go to find quests, Tavern, Sheriff, or Post Office.
In the Tavern, a surly bartender will have errands to run like hunting for food, collecting money from someone with an open tab, to finding out who stole a patron’s horse. Also in the Tavern, businessman named Mr. Buckles will have quests like getting animal (or human) scalps, finding capturing, or killing Sasquatch.
The Sheriff will give you quests to find, capture, and bring back alive (or dead) a fugitive. If you do enough of these successfully you can become a deputy, which has weapon and armor perks. But, be careful, if your caught taking criminal jobs, the sheriff will put you in jail and you will lose your deputy status, not to mention all your money and equipment!
The Post Officeis where you will receive the main storyline quest, which is, rescuing Amelia Potter, the daughter of a billionaire oil tycoon in Port City.
