I’m not amazing at quests but it looks like you have an infinite loop? As soon as you talk to the npc you progress to a state that has an always rule to push you back to the previous state?

yea but if I take always out of the quest an you die then you cant complete the quest. I need it to work in the since that if you die you can proceed to redo the quest at the pervious state, and if you kill the npcs on that map you continue on to the reward.

Just to be honest here, this quest should not even load into EOSERV due to the recursion. Hopefully this isn’t a custom build you are using with quest errors ignored or worse yet the quest integrity check was broken completely. What you are looking for is the quest rule Die() which would have been the official notation as it was actually an unused quest rule in the official EO server. You can find this and the other remaining official quest rules that have not been implemented here https://eoserv.net/bugs/view_bug/367 . As far as a work around, try using the EnterMap or LeaveMap rules. You could even go as entering the coordinates of your spawn point. Always() is a very dangerous rule if used by someone new to writing quests. I would highly recommend of eliminating every possibility before deciding on calling that rule.

Post #204760 Re: need some help with a quest

Another work-around is to have two quests.

The main logic in the first quest.

A second NPC / quest outside the quest map, that can check the player to see if they are on the suitable quest state from the first quest, if so, to warp them inside the quest map, if not, to tell them where to start the quest etc.

Edit* it seems vanilla does not have a check quest state rule...

This could be replaced I suppose, with an item.

First quest gives them a quest item they must have in their bag to return, second quest checks to see if they have that item in bag, before warping in.

Also if you do not wish for them to be able to return after completion - 

Make the item Lore. In the first quest, at the end of it, check to see if they have the item in their bag still, if they do, remove it and complete quest, if they don't (tried to bank etc), tell them to go fetch first.
