Indie tabletop company The Adventure Guild is offering their Ennie-nominated tabletop RPG Quest for free. If you’re a teacher, counselor, or any kind of educator for a public school, you can email the company to request a free digital copy.

Quest is a tabletop RPG like Dungeons & Dragons. Players play with a pencil, paper, and dice and engage in fantastical adventures by telling stories and maybe using props or miniatures.

Quest is a lot more streamlined and beginner friendly. It uses only a single 20-sided die, and the rules are far less concerned with tactical warfare and intricate class abilities.

For that reason, Quest is a fantastic RPG for kids. It’s incredibly easy to teach and play, and features rules on player safety. Tabletop RPGs can be wonderful sources for socializing and storytelling in fun group dynamics.

Quest has been nominated for multiple Ennie awards, including Best Family Game and Product of the Year. The Ennies are hosted every year at gaming convention Gen Con.

If you’d like to learn more about Quest, you can look up the first chapter of the rulebook, and download the free character sheets and world profile. A physical rulebook, as well as an adventure deck, are available on the store. The digital version is also available for purchase.
