You are an adventurer in a world of magic and danger
Quest is a roleplaying game that helps you tell a fantastic story about extraordinary adventurers. You play by sitting around a table and having a conversation with your friends.
You’ll meet intriguing people, visit wonderful places, find powerful objects, and confront impressive villains. Your character, and maybe even you in the real world, will grow and change.
You, and some friends
One player becomes The Guide, who narrates the story and helps run the game. Everyone else plays as one of the story’s main characters.
We’ll help you imagine an evocative character with extraordinary abilities. There are eight unique roles to choose from, and hundreds of special abilities. And we’ll give you lots of character traits and features to choose from to make your character come alive.
We’ll give you the tools to tell an exciting story, but you decide what happens. This is your journey.
The main characters in the story are allies in an adventuring group called the party. Each player except for The Guide creates a character, then plays their role. The game is about these characters and what they do. Each scene in the story is an opportunity for the players to explore their characters and find out what happens to them.
The Guide plays the part of the world around the party, like the director of a movie. They imagine the people, places, and things the party encounters. Then, they help everyone imagine the world of the game by describing it. They also imagine how the world responds to the party — what the consequences are for the players’ actions.
A great introduction to roleplaying
Have you ever closed your eyes, and wished for something magical to happen? Perhaps to talk to animals, grow wings and fly, become invisible, or travel through time and space? This is a special place where these things are possible.
If you’re completely new to this type of game, we’ll have a friendly conversation with you about how to play. Quest is fast, fun, and easy to learn. We hope to show you how intuitive and immersive storytelling games can and should be. And if you're already an experienced player, you'll find a surprisingly deep game with a refreshing set of modern rules.
