Dragon Emperor by Jon Hodgson

A complete and easy to play Fantasy Roleplaying game, with monsters, magic and exotic locales.  OpenQuest uses the classic D100 rules mechanic, which uses percentages to express the chance of success or failure.

Now in its second edition, in full colour with 80 new pages of content. The Deluxe version of the game aims to be a self contained game with rules and advice on how to run a full campaign where the adventurers progress from their poor and ill experienced beginnings to the lofty heights of Godhood!

Open Quest is based on the Mongoose RuneQuest SRD (MRQ SRD), with ideas from previous editions of Chaosium’s RuneQuest and Stormbringer 5th, mixed in with some common sense house rulings from the author’s twenty years of experience with the D100 system.
