  1. Thanks to everyone who has jumped on the OpenQuest 3rd edition pre-order over the last 12 days, its been quite overwhelming the level of take-up πŸ™‚ Quick reminder, the pre-order closes tomorrow night.
  2. Wow! I never knew about this, and picked up a copy as a result. If I had come across it at the time I would have been all over it. "RQ IN SPACE!!!" that's what my teen age self would have cried with glee πŸ˜„ My older self is analysing it and critically dissecting it, like it did recently with Games Workshop's Judge Dredd RPG πŸ™‚
  3. The One Magic System arose out of convention game play, where I found no one was really keeping track of magic point spends, and spells that were variable depending on the magic point spent on them also confused new players. So I simply removed magic points, gave variable spells fixed/randomised effects and combined the three spell lists. This blog post on OpenQuestRpg.com goes into more detail. The One Magic System.
  4. Its a busy year for OpenQuest. Not only is the main rulebook getting a new edition, but there's five releases this year that the Kickstarter funded, plus at least one (the Duck Crusade) that is outside of that. I've set up a page on OpenQuestRPG.com to keep track of all the books in development/released πŸ™‚ OpenQuest Releases This currently only lists the official OpenQuest releases, because that is what I'm focused on at the moment. Eventually I'll get round to producing a list of 3rd Party releases with links as a web page too.
  5. Yes, and the other supplements that the KS funded πŸ™‚ Which are... OpenQuest Dungeons, The Saga of the Savage North, The Clock Work Palace, and of course The Book of Duck (working title) πŸ™‚ I've set up a page on OpenQuestRPG.com to keep track of all the books in development/released πŸ™‚ OpenQuest Releases
  6. Cheers, fixed now πŸ™‚
  7. More details about the upcoming OpenQuest Companion over at OpenQuestRPG.com Read about the OpenQuest Companion Its available as part of the OpenQuest 3rd Edition pre-order, as a free pdf and at cost POD book. Here's Jon Hodgson's cover for the book.
  8. So I'm coming to the end of getting OpenQuest 3rd Edition out there πŸ™‚ As reported in their own posts, but duplicated here for completeness and for folk getting email updates. The OpenQuest Quick-Start The Lost Outpost is out as a free pdf. OpenQuest 3 itself is available to preorder Worth mentioning as well as giving you instant access to the pdf, it also gives you a pdf/POD version of the OpenQuest Companion when it comes out later in the year. Also this is your last chance to get the limited edition signed and sent printed version , with endpapers, ribbons and colour plates.
  9. I’m pleased to say that the main OpenQuest 3 rulebook is done and off to print proof, so it’s time to open up a pre-order. OpenQuest 3rd Edition Now Available to Pre-Order I’ve set up two options for pre-ordering OpenQuest 3rd Edition if you missed last year’s Kickstarter. OpenQuest 3 Signed and Sent (Β£25) – Better quality print, ribbons, endpapers, and five colour plates, signed by myself and sent directly to you. OpenQuest 3 Print on Demand (Β£10) – Print on Demand via drivethrurpg.com. Both come with immediate pdf downloads of the book, along with the OpenQuest Quic
  10. I am pleased to say the free pdf version of the OpenQuest 3rd Edition Quick-Start, the Lost Outpost is now available: Get The Lost Outpost as a free pdf. This pdf is designed to get players and Referees up and playing OpenQuest, with the minimum of preparation. It contains the following sections. Characters. A rundown of what an OpenQuest character is made up of, both in terms of numbers and concepts. Quick Rules. A concise version of the OpenQuest rules, enough to play the adventure. Combat. The rules for physical combat. Magic. The basic approach to ma
  11. I've reinstated the downloads section of the D101 Website, where you can pick up character sheets, demo adventures and other game aids. So far for the D100 fan it has the form fillable, printable, black and white versions of the OpenQuest 3, River of Heaven, and Skyraiders of the Floating Realms character sheets. Check out the "Game Downloads" page.
  12. After another round of edits, both by me and by the backers, the final pdf is done and off to print proof. Also the OpenQuest Quickstart Rules + Adventure, The Lost Outpost, is done bar a final check by my editor. So delivery of final pdfs in the next week or so πŸ™‚ It features this wonderful piece of art by Dan Barker, Granny Tier who is the pc's patroness in the Lost Outpost.
  13. Its not going to be a full conversion but the upcoming OpenQuest Dungeons is going to have a stack of stuff about using OQ to run a game more suited to the play style of the "World's Favourite Fantasy Roleplaying Game".
  14. Small update, Blasters and Lasers funded comfortably so early summer there will be a zero edition available πŸ™‚
  15. Quick update. At time of writing backers of the campaign will be getting two zines. Grogzilla issue 2 itself, a collection of articles and adventures for Crypts and Things, Monkey and the work in progress that is Slumberland. The Duck Crusade which has grown into a zine of its own, since as well as the OpenQuest adventure + characters, it now has a gazetteer of the setting, with an article on how to turn the adventure on its head and use it for the Cultist opposition (for which there will be another set of characters). Currently we are funding this as a third rpg-in-a-zin
  16. VTT support was a stretch goal that funded. I'm currently in the research phase πŸ™‚
  17. I've jumped into Kickstarter's ZineQuest promotion with Grogzilla #2, which is the follow up to last years...Grogzilla #1 πŸ˜„ At the heart of it is an OpenQuest powered adventure called the Duck Crusade, which is a Grimdark Quest with a firm sense of humour, much like the early GW Warhammer Fantasy Battle releases (McDeath for example). It features the Crusader Ducks of Fort Fury, who are trying to regain their homeland which has been overrun by Cultists of Corruption who worship the Great Terror Lizard, GROGZILLA! The Duck Crusade is a one-shot adventure, with its own self contained sett
  18. Ok if you missed the Kickstarter, but still want either the Pdf/POD or Signed and Sent version which is the properly printed version, you can pick it up via my lastest Kickstarter as part of the ZineQuest 3 promotion. You get the main rule book, the Quickstart adventure/rules (The Lost Outpost) and the OpenQuest Companion. Also by backing the zine you get an OpenQuest adventure, the Duck Crusade. Grogzilla #2, get OQ3 as an addon if you missed the Kickstarter.
  19. The pdf went out to backers yesterday! Now sorting out pre-order for people who missed the Kickstarter. Dan Barker did this fantastic last minute piece for the book.
  20. Over at the RPGpub forum, one of its posters Private Eye does a read through of the rulebook, starting here: https://www.rpgpub.com/threads/jackals-bronze-age-fantasy-roleplaying.4535/page-2
  21. Nothing additional was ever published for the Company. Unfortunately the main author, disappeared from the Hobby. "Operation" was probably one of the convention scenarios, Operation Kamphor or Operation Mudbrick. Neither of which was ever published. I've got tentative plans to do a sort of 2nd Edition, but it will probably have a different title and be more broader in scope.
  22. The draft layout is done (with tables of contents, index and page cross references done in the pdf). Its been sent off for checking/final proof , which I'm anticipating will take up to two weeks. Then off to the printers to proof, and pdf to backers. Also in parallel, the 1st draft of the Quickstart rules and adventure, the Lost Outpost, went off to editorial/proof last end of last week. Its all go at D101 HQ!
  23. Mine turned up today, and I'm a proud Uncle John-Matthew has used OQ 2 as a base to create his own game that is packed full of flavour and fun Once I've put OQ3 1st draft layout to bed, and passed it over to final check, I shall be settling down with beverage and reading the rulebook.
  24. Excitement increases, Jonny Gray is signed up to bring his Savage Dark Barbarian Art style to the Saga of the Savage North. Jonny Gray on board to Illustrate The Saga of the Savage North
  25. I feel very blessed I've been able to work with Jon on these covers given how busy he is with his own projects for his Handiwork Games.
