NotQuests is an incredibly easy-to-use, open-source spigot Quests plugin for 1.17, 1.18 and 1.19.

While I initially created NotQuests for my own server because I was unhappy with what the previous Quests plugin we used had to offer, it's now public!

It's being constantly improved, and I really hope that others could contribute to the plugin and help maintain it.

The command system is much faster, easier & flexible than what other Quest plugins have to offer, and I did not notice any performance issues either.


  • Proxy support (like Velocity, Waterfall & BungeeCord)
  • Variable system for registering flexible Actions & Conditions at the same time
  • Actions, Conditions, Objectives & Conditions are registered dynamically. This makes it easy to add your own via the API or by contributing.
  • Tag System (save data per-player)
  • Flexible Conversation system, tightly integrated with actions & conditions
  • Multiple integrations with other plugins (if not, you can achieve a lot with Placeholder Conditions/Objectives & Console Command Actions)
  • Great, extensive API
  • Complete GUI for the User Interface
  • Beautiful GUI & Chat Design
  • Modern coloring using MiniMessage (legacy is unsupported)
  • Player data is saved in MySQL or SQLite, Quest configuration data in a configuration file
  • Quest Point System (You can create your own currency via tags)
  • Smart Command Tab Completions for all User and Admin commands
  • Translation System (
  • Many usable Objectives, Conditions (= Requirements) and Actions (= Rewards). Full list of objectives:

Install it now and check out our many actions/rewards, conditions/requirements and objectives in-game!
