Patron System / Adventure Compendium

Patron System / Adventure Compendium -

Turbine's Dungeons and Dragons Online: Stormreach has been letting us know, piece by peice, what we should expect in the upcoming Module Two: Twilight Forge. This time around, they tell us about The Patron System and Adventure Compendium. As usual, in a case like this, there is simply too much information to give you here. If you follow the link at the bottom though, you can read the whole thing:


Negotiations were complete. The merchants and explorers of Eberron had completed the pacts that would ensure a steady supply of Sahuagin navigators to lead ships safely through the treacherous Shargon's Teeth. A new sea lane opened between Khorvaire and Xen'Drik and the port city of Stormreach began to grow. Every day brought new travelers seeking fame, glory, riches, or a fresh start. As the inns filled to bursting and new faces filled the marketplace, the original residents of Stormreach had to decide how best to separate the wheat from the chaff.

House Kundarak was the first group to see the opportunity inherent in the situation. They began offering incentives and rewards for service to House Kundarak. What better way to inspire loyalty to their House while simultaneously discovering which of the newcomers were the hardest working, the most dedicated and true? The other Houses soon fell in line. House Deneith, House Jorasco, House Phiarlan, the Church of the Silver Flame, and a loose affiliation of merchants and citizens began offering similar incentives for service to their particular group. The new arrivals to Stormreach flourished under the attentions of their chosen patrons.

The Patron System

With the launch of the Twilight Forge Module, we will be introducing a new system through which players gain favor with different groups by completing specific adventures. Favor allows you access to special items and rewards; the higher your favor, the greater the rewards. This will be a dynamic system – as DUNGEONS & DRAGONS ONLINE™: Stormreach™ grows, the Patron system will grow, offering the chance for new and better rewards as well as greater ties and involvement within the various patron groups.

Most adventures in the game will be assigned a patron organization. By completing an adventure you will gain favor with the affiliated patron group. The amount of favor each completed adventure grants you is determined by the Challenge Rating (level), length, and difficulty setting (Normal, Hard, Elite etc.) of that adventure. When you have gained enough favor with a particular group you will gain a new rank (i.e., "Friendly" or "Honored") and a corresponding reward (for example, gaining favor with House Kundarak will allow you to earn additional bank space and gaining favor with the Coin Lords will give you access to expanded inventory slots). Representatives from each of the patron groups will be responsible for giving out new ranks and the accompanying rewards. These Representatives can be found in various locations throughout Stormreach.

When you have earned a new rank with a patron organization, a congratulatory letter will be sent to your mailbox, inviting you to visit the Patron's representative for your reward. You will be able to track your favor with each of the patrons organizations with a new UI element called the Adventure Compendium.
