Deliver some sour gnomish beer to the dark elves

QuestPlaceholder.jpg

It all began in the diplomatic office, with an intern, a houseplant, and a Main Square Parrot. Now, it’s a tradition.

Reprinted in its entirety below is a recounting of the first quest to deliver some sour gnomish beer to the dark elves:

The Unsettlement Consulate was built in 498 g.e. with the idea of providing the rumored residents of the nearby Wastelands of Insomnia with a means of contacting the government of Godville without traveling to Godville itself. The Consulate was... not the best detail. The diplomats that ended up there were the ones that made embarrassing mistakes elsewhere. And not the loose-cannon, everything-turns-out-better sorts of mistake-makers, but the ones who accidentally offer marzipan to foreign leaders who have nut allergies. They ended up at the Consulate because nobody in the Corps actually believed the rumor that there were Dark Elves in the Wastelands or Gnomes in Sleepless Hollow.

In hindsight, Unsettlement probably agreed to host the Consulate since the population was going through record levels of unemployment at the time, because the heat-packing industry had gone through a melt-down. They may have been hoping to corner the proverbial market on an immigration-by-investment program.

I had recently taken my civil service exam and been granted a coveted diplomatic internship. Though I was bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, enthusiastic about starting my career in the world of inter-species relations, I was stupid. Looking back with my more experienced eye, especially after the events of the Great Boss Emergence, I shouldn’t have put up with half the things I did, and shouldn’t have gotten to do three-quarters of what I did. At least, not on 5 gold coins an hour.

📚 Documentation

This is the featured article of the week. Since August 2020, the template have been automated, and will rotate between 52 selected articles (or 53 if there is a 53th week). It is still possible though to include another article if necessary by enclosing the {{Featured/Rotation}} template with a comment tag like following:
<!-- {{Featured/Rotation}} --> .

The "Previously featured" line is also automated, so if an out-of-rotation article was included a previous week, it will be necessary to add it manually and to add a comment tag around the replaced {{Featured/Previous}}. The {{Featured/Previous}} template with |offset=-1 parameter represent the previous weekly article while the one with |offset=-2 represent the article featured two weeks ago.

Formatting

Intended only to show a summary to the article, the following format should be used for a featured resume:

==Article title==
<div style="float:right;margin-left:0.5em;">
[[File:name of image file|frameless|upright=0.4|link=name of the article]]
</div>

Summary paragraph(s) of article goes here

([[Article title|'''more...''']])

Previously featured: [[Previous]] – [[Next Previous]]

Note: Upright parameter can be adjusted according to the picture.

Formatting alternatives

The image can be placed to the left of the text, instead of the right. Which one looks better will depend on the article being featured. Simply reverse the float and margin- style parameters:

==Article title==
<div style="float:left;margin-right:0.5em;">
[[File:name of image file|frameless|upright=0.4|link=name of the article]]
</div>
{{spacer}}
