The Book of Quests

By:

A not-so-subtle means to send PCs on adventures.

Having being inundated by childrens' books - I have three very busy little ones - one series that struck me was the Magic Treehouse (need to confirm title).

There, there were hundreds of books, and the protagonists would find one was either mysteriously open, or a bookmark had appeared.

By opening the book,looking withing and making any type of statment that could taken as a desire to travel, the treehouse would travel to that destination.

So, this, plus such TV shows as Quantum Leap

Simply put, the book contains many quests - typically wrongs that need righted, appropriate to the party at hand. These quests should be serious - one should not casually peruse this volume.

Campaign Use:

Apart from the obvious, a means to 'logically' bring the PCs to whatever plot suits your fancy, the book could serve other purposes.

Someone else has been drawn into a quest and the PCs have been somehow involved to find them. After some searching of varying degrees of difficulty, they find the book open to a particular page. They then need to enter the quest, one which is more suited to the missing party then their own...

       By: Ancient Gamer

The journey had been a long one and now they had entered the mountains. After an entire day spent on paths cut into the mountainside and through moss covered coniferous woods, they encounter a desperate young mountain tribal. He is searching for his beloved wife and his elder brother, both of whom he got separated from after an unsuccessful attempt to kill a cave bear. The last thing he saw was the cave bear in full pursuit of his wife. He could not help her as he had been knocked to the ground by the raging beast, and was struggling to regain full consciousness. The tribal will be clearly nervous and urges them to look for his wife during their travels. He will stay in his village a couple of miles to the north and pleads for assistance should they recover his wife, whether she be dead or alive.

On the next day of travel, they will journey upon a dim track in the forest and while they are preparing to ascend another path cut into the mountainside, they hear moans of lust from somewhere nearby. Upon closer inspection they will spy a young tribal woman in the heat of the act with an elder tribal male. They are consummating their forbidden love on the cold mountain moss, and beside them lay the skinned and slaughtered carcass of a huge bear.
