I have yet to see random dynamic quests that can match a tailored
quest when it comes to a complex plot, politics and intrigues. Dynamic
quests tend to lean towards Kill X, Give Y to Z, etc. and tend to be
very = boring.

The negative side with tailored quests is that they can be
factorized=20 (completed over and over again by the same group of
people). You can add random twists and changes to the quest so that it
does change, but still is more well-thought and compatible with the
overall world = setting.

A collaboration between tailored quests and random quests would work,
but if I had to choose between the two I would go for content over =
