Announcing two new Quest adventures
January 18, 2021
Today we're happy to announce two new upcoming adventures for Quest that will be released in 2021. This pair of lively and funny stories represents the first slate of Quest content created by new third-party authors and artists, and will serve as a model for future adventure content. Both stories are "short quests" (adventures that last from 1-2 play sessions), and will be made available in digital and physical editions on release.
Written by Lucian Kahn and illustrated by Sonya Henar
In this short quest, players will travel to the land of Garlic Graves, where the living and the dead share a passion for culinary craft. On the eve of the great annual Harvest Festival, the adventurers stumble upon a pair of friendly skeleton husbands who have just awoken from an epic slumber and need help preparing a meal for their 1,000th anniversary dinner. But from storm gourds to cheeses of decay, sourcing the rare ingredients won't be easy — especially with a rival chef lurking in the shadows.
In Good Company
Written by Karen Han and Brian David Gilbert
A rising merchant's guild has rented an entire train for their first annual company retreat, and the adventurers have been hired to provide security. It promises to be a sleepy affair — until it becomes clear that someone aboard The Icebreaker Express has murderous plans. As the locomotive barrels toward unexpected personnel-cutting, the adventurers will have to uncover a deadly plot while trying to survive various team-building activities. Watch out for that trust fall.
