Months ago, I mentioned that I had invested in the Lewt System (by Goblin Wares). This product allows a creator to totally customize a Role Play (RP) Quest/Craft system. It includes the ability to add a game economy with Merchants along with the items you put out for guests/members to collect and craft.
Its a complex, yet easy to use system for the creator. It requires a lot of thought and planning. You need the items, recipes of ingredients needed to craft these items, “nodes” that allow participants to gather the resources needed, and crafting stations used to make each item.
Whew! Yes it is a lot of work, but it has been fun. I wanted to offer guests and group members some RP activity 24/7, where the time zones didn’t matter, nor did having anyone else with you. Lewt can be done alone or with friends.
You must be a member of the Dark Nights RP group. It is free to join. Once you have done that, you will be able to use the portal up to the members only area. On the first level you will find a teleporter that has the Lewt area destination. Taking the TP lands you here at the Lewt welcome center. There you will find information, examples of some of the advanced lewt items, a note card giver that gives a complete list of recipes available and the upgraded Lewt Magic containers for sale.
You will see a book on the shelf that you will click to receive your starter kit. This contains a free basic pouch. It is not necessary to upgrade, but Magic ones are quite special.
Upgraded Magic Containers for Purchase
Your starter kit will also contain free tools to wear when crafting and beginner recipes to walk you through the process. You are given Overview, Instructions and Advanced Lewt Note cards. You can also take the note card with the complete list of recipes to date. I recently added a brand new item, Voodoo Skull Staff. And remember, there is NO cost to participate. The resources are all there to find and once you get them all, you can make the item for free.

I put a lot of great details and high quality textures on them.
So, now you ask… How do we get this great Lewt, Lannorra? All you do is find the Lewt resources that are placed around the estate and harvest them.
Here is a picture of a Ravenwood Tree, with two raven nests.
Here are two Metal Mines. You will find multiple resource nodes. This is because once a resource is harvested, it disappears and goes dormant for a period of time, in order to keep people from “camping” a resource. Once that one is gone, you need to go find others to complete your list of ingredients.
This is a basket of cloth that you can search for just the upholstery you would like for your beautiful carved chair:
Advanced recipe items. You must find the recipe to make these. Hint, check around the Lewt area for these.
This is what the recipe scrolls look like… when you see one click it!! Collect all you can find so you can make more great Lewt!
If you are wearing your pouch or magic container, you can gather the resources and they will be used when you craft the item at the end. Once you have resources it is often necessary to use several crafting stations. For example, you collect Ravenwood logs, but will need to craft them into planks to use to make your item. In that case you will need the wood sawing crafting station:
For now all the crafting stations you need are at the Lewt Starter area.
However, soon there will be crafting stations in other areas. I try to make things logical. So if you are looking for a recipe for a Demon Table, I hope you will think to look at the Demon area for that and some resources.
I hope I have whetted your appetite and you will drop by and try out the system. I will add new items as time allows. I also still have two hunts that are offered 24/7 also.
Vampire Blood Hunt (gather blood drops) and the Demonizer Hunt (harvest lost souls of ghosts). Quest information is available at the Dark Nights Welcome area and the first floor of Bon Temps Mansion, which also has examples of all the prizes you can win if you complete the hunts.
(PS. I am now working on Merfolk Lewt, stay tuned for more on that!)
