What is StarQuest? StarQuest is an Open Source (i.e. free) roleplaying game system created by a group of gamers on the Dragonsfoot.org StarQuest Forum. StarQuest has its own "default" campaign universe, called the Near Stars Campaign. The original materials were released August 9th, 2004.
StarQuest is free, and always will be. The designers are all old-school gamers, and the system is "lite" and simple. It's not d20.
