Battle ferocious monsters, master arcane spells, and undertake epic quests in this adaptation of the seminal RPG Progress Quest. Gameplay has been streamlined to eliminate the tedium of keeping track of attribute stats, armor classes, gold, etc., while remaining as true as possible to the original.

Special Rules

Levels

Every player begins at Level 1.  When a player has an amount of Experience equal to their Level, their Level increases by one and their Experience resets to zero.

Equipment, Quests, and Spells

Every player may control a maximum of one of each type of Equipment (Weapon, Weapon Mod, Shield, and Shield Mod) and one Quest and may hold at most one of each in their hand, discarding at the end of their turn if necessary.

If a player holds in their hand any card with a required level higher than the player's level, or any Equipment card that is weaker than the corresponding type of card under their control but stronger than that of any opponent, they must discard it at the end of their turn.

If a player controls no Weapon card, their weapon is a Sharp Stick with strength 1. Sharp Sticks may not take Weapon Mods.

A player may only play a Spell or Equipment card if they have gained a level during their current or last turn, or if another card instructs them to.

Characters and Monsters

At the beginning of the game, search the deck for a Character card and put it into play under your control; it is an indestructible Thing. The other Character cards can be played in the same way as Monster cards. The numbers in a Monster or Character card's cornervalue are the Weapon and Shield strengths, respectively, required to play that card.

If a player draws a Monster card both of whose Weapon and Shield strengths exceed the player's, they must immediately discard it to run away from the monster for 1 Experience and may not play another Action that turn. If only one of the Monster card's Weapon and Shield strengths exceeds the player's, they may choose to run away but are not required to.

Finding Cards

When a player is instructed to "find" a card of a given type, they must draw cards until they draw one of that type, then reveal the others and shuffle them back into the draw pile.

If a player finds a card with a required level higher than the player's level, they may choose to ignore it and continue finding.
