There are a lot (and we mean a lot) of sidequests in Origins, far too many to cover in great detail, but most of them fall into one or two of a handful of categories so rather than list them all in exhaustive detail we’ve decided to cover them in a general form. Most sidequests will be made up of one or more of the following types of activity – sometimes it’s a simple “rescue the guy” that’ll take a couple of minutes, sometimes it’s a ten minute multi-step procedure that requires you to find some clues, follow a suspect, clear an area of hostiles, and explore a hidden cave, but they’re still pieced together out of the same building blocks.
