Book of Quests
« on: December 06, 2012, 02:52:53 PM »
Forthcoming Book of Quests from Designmechanism should be out early next year. It features several fantasy scenarios that can be used as play-alones or used in a grand campaign. System is Runequest 6, but its easily adaptable to most RPG fantasy rules. Scenarios are backed up by atmospheric artwork and an abundance of maps and building plans. (Those who know me will be aware of the fact that I can be quite critical of poor quality or innappropiate artwork)

Its edited by Lawrence Whitaker and Pete Nash, two of the most respected writers in the RPG community. Each scenario is by a different writer and feature a variety of urban and wilderness locations.

A of course, your campaigns revolve around avoiding rapist prison guards ;)

I'm jesting Doc, your plots are always excellent IMO.

Looking at Designmechanism web site forum it looks like you can do a deal if you want to buy Monster Island and Book of Quests. Dead tree costs more but gets you a free pdf version as well !

We estimate that print copies will be shipped from our warehouse at the end of March, although the PDF version of the book is available for immediate download. If you buy Book of Quests directly from us, you will be offered the PDF free of charge.

Each scenario is complete with maps, diagrams, handouts and full RQ6 statistics for all the NPCs and creatures encountered.

Book of Quests offers months of play. Can the characters thwart Jedakiah's schemes? Can King Myur be saved from himself? What evil lurks in the heart of Aylesford? What secret does the mournful Contessa keep?

Find all these answers - and more, in the pages of Book of Quests.
