This discount is for the limited time only - Pocket Quest 2023

From the mind behind the 2022's Silver Bestseller, "Campfire Story", hails a new chapter in solo tabletop gaming. Prepare to embark on an epic hard Sci-Fi journey, one that transcends the boundaries of known space and delves into the mystery of a long-lost civilization. A chilling odyssey teetering on the edge of the unknown, an exploration of the extraterrestrial, and a testament to the indomitable spirit of discovery... brace yourself for an experience that's out of this world.

“It has yet to be proven that intelligence has any survival value.”
― Arthur C. Clarke

In Entity, you step into the role of an AI synthetic astronaut, finding yourself stranded within an enigmatic and diverse expanse filled with alien ruins. These grand, intricate edifices are the remnants of long-forgotten civilizations, silent keepers of history steeped in mystery.
Compelled by circumstance and curiosity, your mission is to traverse these alien landscapes, each step bringing you closer to deciphering the cryptic clues etched into the structural fabric of these ancient constructs. The quest to unearth the narratives contained within the artifacts strewn across your path transforms into an experience of survival and self-discovery.
This odyssey, however, isn't solely about knowledge acquisition. It serves as a testament to the tenacity of an interstellar castaway. Alone but unyielding, you journey across this extraterrestrial terrain, navigating the vastness of an alien world, your resilience echoing amongst the silent ruins.

In this game, you are the master of your own narrative. The game equips you with a set of tools to craft a captivating story comparable to a compelling novel or a riveting TV show. It incorporates a variety of oracle tables to randomly generate the extraterrestrial environments around you, stage intriguing scenes, and populate them with a diverse array of alien forms and anomalies. Additionally, it provides a clear roadmap on how to manage your story's progression.


Gameplay involves using a pair of ten-sided dice to determine the outcomes of risky actions. Based on your attributes, your goal is to roll a number equal to or less than the attribute's value. The results can range from success to partial success, which introduces a complication, or failure, which results in a permanent Impairment.

Hello!

I noticed while transferring info in the roll tables into a VTT (for personal usage) that the 39-40 roll is exactly the same for both the 'Encounter - Challenge' and 'Encounter - Opportunity' tables - "A curious but potentially dangerous alien creature has taken an interest in you. [Keywords:] Biology, Survival, Communication".

I'm going to assume that this is a mistake that hasn't been caught yet as the latter (Opportunity) does not match the rest of the entries on that roll table. Personally, I changed the Opportunity table entry to reflect the rest of the entries.

Also would like clarity on whether this is a roll OVER or UNDER system. Because otherwise spending Data to ADD TO A RESULTING ROLL when you want to roll UNDER the DC is detrimental. The 'Action Roll' section seems to indicate a roll-under, but then spending Data indicates that it adds to a roll's result... which does not help. Unless you meant that it SUBTRACTS from the result, which IS helpful.

I'm confused about upgrades. How long do they last? For example, if I have upgraded my suit with "Assistive Nanodrone Swarm" and I use 2E to activate the upgrade and gain "Robotics +1", how long does the gained "Robotics +1" last? For the remainder of the game, or just for the next Action Roll?

Question about Advanced Extraction Tools and Data Mining Algorithms upgrades: They have a listed energy cost of 2E and the benefit: "+1 Resources (or +1 Data) on Acquisition".

This doesn't make a lot of sense to me. Either they should be a one-off benefit on acquisition (therefore, they shouldn't have an energy cost), or the benefit should be "+1 Resources (or +1 Data) on Use", meaning they can be used multiple times by paying the energy cost.

Can anyone confirm which interpretation is correct? Thanks.

Hello it means, when you acquire resources or data, you can pay 2 energy to raise the acquisition of those resources or data by 1.

I created a dynamic sheet for entity! It applies upgrades, tracks your buildings, and has a graphical representation of your energy/resources/data.

Hello! I can’t find any info on what exactly happens when I reach an Aspect. Do I add “aspect” to a spacesuit slot, or is it just implied that I’ve brought this aspect back to my base? Just curious if they should be taking up inventory slots, which would make the game more difficult. Thanks for a great game!

Hi Calvin. Aspect don't take any space in your Spacesuit. You should track it outside the character sheet, ideally in your journal alongside the structures.

Is it possible to play this game with a GM, or without a GM but multiple players? Are there any rules (optional or otherwise) that support this? Thanks!

Hello, not yet i am writing a standalone sequel called Unity and it will be a part of it. But if you want play it with your friends and just change the intro story into that you all.survived and find yourselves on the planet. When making encounters multiply it per player and let every player does the side activity of his choice. Multiply also the aspects necessary for compleeting mission. Players can share data to raise the luck in encounter rolls. Dont worry the aspects get multiplied.

What am I missing, the only way to acquire Aspects to complete missions is to roll 10+ on the location encounter chart?

Hi Nancy, yes this is the only way. But dont worry, collecting data is the way to mitigate this. It is portraing your need to explore and analyze the planet surface and its possibilities, to gather info and clues.

Hey Peter! Really cool game and thanks for the printer friendly version. But may I dare to ask. I really like the color coding for the different tables like in Advanced Storytelling. In the printer friendly version now all is b+w. Is it possible to make the base game tables also with bright background like in A. Storytelling? That would be great. Thanks and have a nice day.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.

Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
