Quest:The Duel

From Cities

Jump to: navigation, search

Prerequisite: You must be fire initiated
Reward: Your damage multiplier is increased by one while you have a career as a Knight
Location: Temple of Fire in Fire City at 2E 94N DSSGCM
AP Cost: 1AP to register
Tips: If you don't want to stumble around until you find an opponent, feel free to add yourself to the Duellists page to invite an encounter.

Locate and kill another duelist to earn your reward. Not for the faint of heart.


  • Unlike monsters, duelists are too honourable to steal your inventory if they kill you. You'll wake up with everything except your pride intact.
  • Registering costs 1AP. UN-registering costs 50AP and loses you 1000XP and a Dueling Sabre.
  • You unregister automatically once you kill someone or get killed yourself.
  • You can't register again as a duelist once you've won a duel.
  • You duel someone by finding another duelist (black background to their name). Once you've found your victim, you clobber them with the weapon of your choice (5AP per attack). They behave exactly like a monster, attacking after your attack. The weapon they use to attack you is the one that that player left their character holding.
Note that a 'non-knight' character can register for the duel but does not get the black background. Sneaky bas... ahm, slightly less honourable gentlemen. Phw 22:26, 22 June 2007 (BST)

So, if you're a duelist, you probably want to be holding the largest, ugliest weapon you own. Be aware that your weapon could break when someone attacks you, so you might want to pick a weapon that you've got more than one of.

  • If you kill someone reactively, it counts as a kill for this quest
  • What if they change your alignment are you stuck like that? --Slith 18:22, 17 February 2006 (GMT)
Yes until you find a mirror monster
  • You can't be summoned when you are a duelist
  • There has been long debates about what weapons should be allowed (ex: golden guns). If you want to reopen that debate, please be aggressive and take every argument personally.
  • Try checking a party. Be sure to summon them back.
