Venture Forth

Selected Option:
PDF + Card(s)

Venture Forth is a card-based storytelling game, in which you each control one member of the party and describe what happens to your character on your adventures. By answering the questions on the cards and creating Quests, you make your heroes succeed or let them fail, whatever is more interesting to you.

Since the meat of the game is in the cards, the rulebook is available for free, here. The PDF version includes an A4-sized version of the rulebook, as well as all the cards in a layered PDF, so you can print them without the colourful background. 

This game is heavily inspired by The Quiet Year by Avery Alder.

You begin with the heroic tier, during which the cards guide you to decide what's your character like, where she's from, what she can do, and why she's doing it.

You continue on to the paragon tier, where you might be asked to travel to far away lands, uncover the ancient origins of what, until now, seemed like a local issue, or go through a sudden transformation such as betraying your beliefs or siding with an enemy.

In two to three hours you’ll reach the maximum level and end your adventuring career with one final, extraordinary Quest. There’s no way to win or to lose, even if your character becomes a god or dies in a gutter. You’re here to tell an interesting story.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
