Quests & Items

Welcome to Totem’s guide on all Quests and Items found on the RPG. Across the site there are a multitude of different quests that you can partake in, all with their own perks and rewards! Of course, if you have any questions at all, please feel free to boop an admin.

Quests 101


There are many, many quests that are available on Totem! Like a video game, there are different kinds of quest you and your character can participate in. Each type has their own perks, rewards, and requirements. The different kinds of quests you will encounter are: Varwulfar Quests, Sorcery Quests, Transformation Quests, Blessed Quests, Story Quests, and Site Wide Quests.

Not sure if you can participate in a particular quest? Don't fret, here's a handy guide:
  • Everyone can participate with no requirements: Site Wide Quests and Transformation Quests.
  • Limited participants per quest with certain requirements: Story Quests.
  • Individual participants with unique requirements: Varwulfar Quests, Sorcery Quests and Blessed Quests.

Read on below to learn more about each type of quest and what they entail!

Varwulfar & Sorcery Quests


After purchasing a Varwulfar item from the shop, characters must complete a quest before they are granted their Varwulfar to show the shopkeep that they are dedicated enough to care for such a creature. Wordly Varwulfar quests do not need as much care thus their task will be simple whereas the Ethereal and Behemoth variety will require you prove yourself worthy of such a beast.

Please Note: That although you have purchased a Varwulfar from the shop, you must first apply and then complete a Varwulfar quest that is unique to you and your character.

Transformation Quests


Transformation Quests are available in the middle of each in-character season (see Time Flow and Seasons for assistance). However, entry is not automatic. The respective land and aquatic totems will post the Quest in the Nordlys realms, prompting any who are brave enough to come forward for a coveted Transformation Item. They will ask a puzzle, or a riddle, or a question of unfathomable understanding; for after all, they are the god's children, gifted those with the ability to traverse land and seas they might not ever before.

How do these Quests work? Each Transformation Quest is different! Some are easy, some are fickle, and some question the courage of those who dare enter. The reward for this type of quest is one of two Transformation Items, depending on which one your character enters. There will be two quests per season: one to receive the Earth Talisman, and another to receive the Mermaid Coin. For more information on these two prizes, read on below to "Transformation Items."

Blessed Quests


Blessed item quests are a one-time per character quest to receive an item from one of the four totems. These kinds of quests are extremely rare and are available once a character reaches 300 IC posts. Completing this type of quest yields a Blessed Item for your character. These items are individually Blessed by one of the four totems (Eska, Lars, Leif, and Fen), and grant certain stat boosts for your character. These items are not transferable, and are obtained through a mini quest. A character can only have one Blessed item, so choose carefully! This also means that a character can only do one Blessed quest; they cannot complete one and then another later in time.

Once your character has reached 300 in-character posts, you can apply to complete a Blessed Quest! For more information about the items that you can potentially receive, please read on to "Blessed Items" below.

Story Quests


Story Quests are just that — fun event threads that enhance the experience and plots of Totem as a whole. Story Quests are unique in the sense that a large number of characters can participate at one time to accomplish the common goal of the specific quest, all whilst reaping smaller rewards.

Site Wide Quests


Site Wide Quests are akin to Site Wide Plots (SWPs). However, although similar, SWQs are more so story-driven events that occur in the world of Nordlys. Unlike SWPs, side wide quests are multi-tier “contests” that reap rewards and other prizes, all while furthering the rich experience of writing on Totem.

Items 101


Items across Totem can be acquired in many manner of ways. Some are awarded by achievement, others in events or special quests, but most are acquired in the handy on-site Shop. Read on to learn more about the more rare, unique items that characters can obtain in the world of Nordlys!

Blessed Items


These items are extremely rare and can be obtained once per character after reaching 300 IC posts. The items are individually Blessed by one of the four totems, and grant certain stat boosts for your character. These items are not transferable, and are obtained through a mini quest. A character can only have one Blessed item, so choose carefully! This also means that a character can only do one Blessed quest; they cannot complete one and then another later in time.

Transformation Items


Transformation items are limited-time-use items that allow characters to temporarily change forms and explore land or under the sea when normally they cannot. These items are obtained during the Transformation Quests held in the middle of each in-character season.

Mermaid Coin

Allows land characters to temporarily breathe underwater/grow fins to visit the Aeramore and Oceania for one thread (cannot be used in two consecutive threads). The Mermaid Coin is blessed by the aquatic totem, Fen.

Earth Talisman

Allows aquatic characters to temporarily grow legs/survive on land to visit Nordlys for one thread (cannot be used in two consecutive threads). The Earth Talisman is blessed by one of the three other totems; Eska, Lars, or Leif.


Rare Items


Rare items that are acquired via quests are unique, one-of-a-kind items with varying benefits and uses. These items are rare for a reason, and are few and far between. For more information on all of the rare items that you can find on Totem, head on over to this supplement thread.
