About the adventure

After a long journey, you've arrived in Arcanos, the worst place in the world. Here, you'll delve into unhallowed tombs and twisted forests, dens of sin and houses of murder, seeking fame, fortune, and forgotten secrets. Maybe you'll even do some good, if you can live long enough. --- In Darkest Quest you play as heroes in a terrifying world, fighting evil as it encroaches from all sides. Suitable for people of any skill level, and scariness can be tailored to players' comfort levels with safety tools. Game is LGBTQ-friendly, and we won't accept bigotry at the table. --- This is free session designed to introduce people to Darkest Quest. We will start promptly at the indicated time.

Additional Details

How to prepare

You will need a webcam & mic, and pen & paper, and a 20-sided die (either physical or digital), as well as the chat program "Discord". You can prepare whatever else you like, such as costume, art, backstory, etc, but that is up to you. I will explain the rules at the start and give you a hand-out, but if you want to read the Quest rules ahead of time, you can do so at https://www.adventure.game/rules/

What I provide

I will use my webcam & mic, and dice. I will also have some maps and art to show you through Discord.

Gameplay details

You will need: A pen & paper, a 20-sided die, and a heroic spirit! We'll be playing Quest RPG, a new system with quick combat and resolution. 1) RP. You can play your character as a unique individual or an extension of yourself, whichever works for you. I will adapt to what the majority of players are doing. 2) Combat. The world is full of monsters intent on ending your life, and if you do not defend yourselves, you will perish. Combat is quick, and may use simple maps, but grid combat is not required. 3) Puzzles. There will always be some mystery, and the story will progress regardless of whether you solve it or not... 4) Experience. No experience is necessary. I'll run through the system at the top of each session, and it doesn't take long. Maximum 10 minutes to explain the rules. I'll also give you a cheat sheet with everything you need to know in a pinch.
