PlayWrite / QuestWrite 20200203.0.0-beta (stable) for LOTRO released

03 Feb 2020, 07:46

Hey everyone!
I just released PlayWrite (comes with QuestWrite) as a stable beta.

PlayWrite is a system to support player-run performances in LOTRO. The server (director) parses a textfile containing a play or sketch that's written in human-readable syntax and passes the lines and commands on to the respective clients (performers). All communication between server and clients is sent via the ingame chat-channels and is read by tailing a chat-log of that channel.

QuestWrite is a software for player run quests and utilizes the same systems as PlayWrite for explanations, story etc.

I developed PlayWrite and QuestWrite as a standalone system that's largely agnostic of the target system. Both can be easily customized to work with any other game or chat-system as long as it allows to have different channels and can write log-files of those.

Now, there would need to be multi-client testing and some feedback from players actually running events before going further and considering a release out of beta.

I'd love to have some feedback on this from the community. Maybe you'll find some snippets useful? ;)
