Here it is, the OpenQuest 3rd Edition rules stripped down to their bare essentials.

It’s also available online.

Note this is not the full game, which is fully illustrated, with copious examples, advice, a setting and an adventure which is available from me.

If you are interested in using the SRD for your content, please read the “How to Use the SRD” pdf included. This article explains the Creative Commons License that the SRD is released under in layman’s terms and what you have to do to comply with its terms to release products, either free or commercial, using it.

Previous releases of the OQ SRD have spawned such great games as Age of Shadow by Crooked Staff Games, Cakebread and Walton’s Clockwork and Chivalry and Jackals published by Osprey games, so I’m interested to see what comes out from this release.

Note the OpenQuest SRD uses the Creative Commons 4.0 by Attribution license, having moved away from the previously used WoTC OGL 1.0a.

Update this is now version 1.2, and contains many small updates and corrections from the initially released v1.1, that were made to the 2nd printing of OpenQuest 3rd edition.

If you are working on something, let me know, and I’ll list it at
