This article is a list of Quests, sorted according to their type. See each quest's specific article for plot, rewards, and strategy details. As of Patch 1.3, there are 71 quests in The Sims Medieval. The Pirates & Nobles expansion adds 15 more quests for a total of 86 quests.

Including the Pirates & Nobles quests, there are two quests which cost 0 Quest Points, two quests which cost 1 QP, 13 quests which cost 2 QP, 50 quests which cost 3 QP, and 19 quests which cost 4 QP.

Annexing Advorton reduces the costs of quests costing 3-4 QP by one point. This list uses the original, unaffected costs.

Paltry Aspects

Paltry aspect quests will only appear if the kingdom is in dire need of an aspect. Completing them usually dramatically raises the paltry aspect in question. If a kingdom has completed its ambition, these quests will be available without requiring a paltry aspect.

In total there are 21 paltry aspects quests: 3 for Well-Being, 3 for Knowledge, 8 for Culture, and 7 for Security.
