Adventure Quest is a Role Playing Gaming System that allows you and your friends to adventure on a far-off worlds and in strange places.  Each Adventure Quest game is set in a particular genre, whether it be a medieval fantasy world, the far reaches of outer space, or a post-holocaust North America.  You create an adventurer, an alternative persona whom you direct as they live and die in there far distant lands.   Adventure Quest is designed to be fast paced, easy system which stresses the role-playing element of the game by minimizing the mechanics of die roles, rules and complexities.

  Adventure Quest - Jaern grew out of a role-playing campaign that has been played on every Saturday night since December of 1976.  It started as a small group of friends role-playing, and over the years the rules grew and changed.  It became apparent that something less primitive was needed.  Over the first few years of the 80's, most of this rule set was conceived and written down.  To date, over 1250 sessions have been run within this same campaign.
