Default Spectral Guardian encounter

Hello everyone. First, I'd like to thank the entire community for contributing to the EQ emulator effort. jshows1 and I have been working on our own server for a while now (Jer's Server), as he mentioned in a previous post. Although I have created many events for our Norrath, here is one I found particularly satisfying, perhaps because it taught me how to do signalling. At any rate, I thought I'd share it with you.

Very brief overview: turn in 4 pure elements, defeat the encounter, get Convergence of the Elements as a reward, along with a chest of loot.

The 13 NPCs to be created are listed in the headers of the perl files (except the loot chest mob). The 5 items (mentioned in brief overview) are also described in the files.

The perl files:

#############
#Quest: Script for Spectral Guardian encounter
#NPCid 1269
#Name: Taris
#Race 128 (iksar), d_melee_texture1 and 2 = 11524 (spectral sword)
#Location: x=9133, y=925, z=1064, h=127 of dreadlands (behind grassy area near pyramid park (also need to relocate Klok F`tshai to outside pyramid park)
#Level: 40
#Type: quest NPC
#Loot: tableid
#HP: 5000

if($text=~/Hail/i){
quest::say("Help free me from this prison! The elements have used the power within my spectral swords to... What is that monstrosity in the distance?");
}
}
else {
if($text=~/Hail/i){
quest::say("Hello, $name. What brings to you the spires of Dreadlands, a convergence of the [elements]?");
}
if($text=~/elements/i){

Please leave comments and/or suggestions as we hope to improve our server and attract a playerbase to test this for us. Thank you to those who have been playing and finding bugs. Once I finish all the epic 0.5 quests (intended for lvl 30-40), I will post them here as well.

Update: If you wish to use the above encounter Perl files, please make the change of sub EVENT_DEATH to sub EVENT_DEATH_COMPLETE due to the script now executing this sub prior to despawn/corpse appear, not after.

More free encounter files to come soon...
