This book focuses on maximum gaming fun, presenting modular rules that add excitement to any D100 game.

The One Magic System. I first used this quick magic system for convention games. Here it is, expanded and balanced for campaigns which do not need (or where you don’t want to use), OpenQuest’s standard Three Magic System.

Membership. Want a quick game-mechanic to measure how responsive your character’s organisation is to their calls for help? Then the optional Membership (Organisation) skill is the answer. Use it to track your character’s ups and downs in the organisation’s favour and to gain access to the organisation’s benefits. An extension of the rules for Ranks, in the core rulebook’s Magic chapters, these now also cover non-magical organisations such as guilds.

Adventuring Associations. So, your merry band of adventurers have formed a party that has endured at least one caper and they want to create a shared base of operations? This article shows the benefits of the characters creating their own adventuring association or joining an existing one. Also, it is an example of how to use the Membership skill.

Deities List. A generic list of readymade religions for you to use in your game.

Near-Death Experiences. When a character should die, the player spends a fortune point to avoid the final curtain call. Instead of just falling unconscious, until the combat is over, they end up caught between worlds. The valuable insights they can gain while waiting to come back to life are covered in this article.

Other World Quests. This article explains what exactly happens when the characters go adventuring in the Other Worlds.

Realm Quests. This article details how to define nations and states in OpenQuest, and the Quests that arise because of events in the realm.

WAR! The realm is ablaze with conflict. This article deals with the consequences of war to the adventurers, no matter their power to affect the final outcome.

Quick Quest. Meet the rules I use at my table to streamline the game even further, without short-changing the players.

Quick Encounters. Classic D100 Encounters tables by terrain type, to spice up dull journeys.

Question regarding "Ward Camp".
It is written as "10 square meters", which would be a square about 3.1m each side, or a circle with a diameter of about 3.5m.

Seems kind of small to actually ward a camp except for one person, and that still puts the edge uncomfortably close for that person.

On the other hand, if the writer meant "10 meters square", that would be a square 10m each side. That seems like a comfy yet close camp for a hunting or adventuring party.

Getting the [measurement] square or square [measurement] mixed up is a pretty common error.

Thanks for pointing this out. I've updated the description to read "50 square metres" which gives room for the whole campsite to be protected.

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.
