OpenQuest is an easy to play and straightforward fantasy roleplaying game that uses the tried and tested D100 dice mechanic.

OpenQuest lets you play fantastic death defying adventurers, in search of fame and fortune.

Every step of the way you’ll be supported by these easy to understand rules based upon over forty years of the tried and tested D100 mechanic.

Easy to Learn. The rules have been pared back to the bare minimum and most rules only need a single roll to determine success or failure.

Organised. Fourteen logical easy to follow chapters, with advice for both Players and Referees throughout.

Complete. This book contains all you need to play (except dice). Rules, loot, creatures, an example fantasy setting and an adventure are all provided.

Examples. As well as the adventures of Elthelred the Reckless there are numerous examples of play.

Time-Tested. This version of the rules is based upon the author’s in-game experiences of over thirty years.

Flexible. Easily adaptable to the Fantasy world of your choice.

Open. The rules in this book are Open Gaming Content so other publishers can easily use them for their own releases.

Fun. All this builds up to a game that is designed to be entertaining first.

US Letter size (8″ x 11.25″0), 268 pages, black and white art throughout.

This is a rather nice version of a well known d100 system, and it has several interesting improvements that will likely make life easier for both players and GMs, while still maintaining compatibility. It is worth the money despite others that exist in the d100 field.

How much does this differ from the 2nd Edition Deluxe version I have?
It looks like all of the titles I've purchased are no longer available. Will they all get updated?

It's largely backwards compatible since I used OQ 2 Deluxe as the base. But it's been polished, updated enough to me to call it a 3rd Edition. The preview gives the first 20 or so pages almost up to the end of character generation so that you can do a side by side comparison.

This rather long blog post goes into it in detail https://openquestrpg.com/2020/06/

You can use the old setting/adventure books (Life and Death, The Savage North, Crucible of the Dragons) with it. Only the Savage North is getting an immediate revised version, called The Saga of the Savage North. And that's a new version, so people who bought the 1st/2nd edition Savage North won't be getting an automatic upgrade. No plans to update Crucible of the Dragons, and I really want to go to town on Life and Death, which will be a new version with a new title that is not even on my immediate list for new stuff.

Format
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.
