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...

Book of the Gods

       By: MysticMoon

This tome looks like a haphazard collection of random notes on different types of paper stitched together and bound within a wooden cover. The pages describe all of the 300,000 gods of the world, each in the language of the people who worship them. The book is stored high in the mountains, kept safe by an order of monks. Reading the entire book confers a deep understanding on the nature of the cosmos and access to incredible power. This only works, however, if it is read without translation, meaning that the reader must master each language contained within. The various monks know these languages but there is typically only one alive at a time who knows them all. This monk would be an excellent source of information and/or magic. IF the PCs learn about it; IF they can find the monastery; IF they can convince the monks to help them; AND if they can understand the convoluted riddle given as an answer.
