The Questing Beast

Watermarked PDF

The Questing Beast is a narrative RPG based on my other narrative game, The Pool. TQB takes The Pool's concept and puts a little flesh on the bones. The game is based on the story of King Arthur with cartoon animals instead of humans. Take the seeds of the Arthurian tales and spin them into a new Accord in any time or place.

TQB has been spread all over the world since it was first published in 2003. It is not a perfect game. It is an early "story game". That is, it is an RPG that gives you tools for sharing narrative control. I haven't read it in years and it is probably cringeworthy. I present it here for free exactly as it was originally published. Enjoy.

Note that the original version was a hand-bound printed edition with a red cover. Dawna Keeney used stencils and gold or silver pens to make it look cool. I haven't seen one of those copies in many years.

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.
