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: Sentinel

The Rhenn Plains are serene and peaceful, beautiful, and quiet as if nothing had ever had happened to it, hiding away it's violent present and past. During some time ago, the countries needed land to fight on, for they did not want war to come to their home, so they chose the Rhenn Plains, Armies met there and men died on the lands, so the land has been empty always. But now there has been set an outpost and they are beset by the goverments wanting to keep it free, will the soldiers of the barracks prevail, or fall trying?
