ZineQuest Meet the Publisher: Mark Braden

Marc Braden is crowdfunding Misadventure Games. You can find a longer interview I conducted with Marc several months ago here.


Question: Easy question first: Give us the elevator pitch of your project. Tell us about it in two sentences or less.

Answer: MisAdventure Games is a simple OSR'ish rule set meant for people that love to play games! We are introducing it with a Core Rulebook, a Fantasy Compendium and fun filled Sword and Sorcery time hijinks filled Point Crawl.

Q: Is this your first ZQ project or have you done it before? If it's your first, talk a bit about what inspired you to give it a shot this year.

A: It is in fact my first foray into the crowd-funding world. I have always self-funded projects and then used the sales to fund the next project. As Todd knows, I was living in Ukraine and unfortunately the war has put my finances to the test. i have donated all the money my projects have made since the beginning of the war and did not want to let all the people involved in this one down. So when ZineQuest was announced, and we had the first two books already done, we decided to join in. I think we have a great group of stretch goal writers and I think everyone who picks it up will have a lot of fun with it.

Q: Finally, tell us something about your current project that really excites you but the average backer may not be aware of. Maybe a twist to an old trope, a new way of presenting something, or maybe just something you've never tried before that you're using this as an opportunity to try out.

A: Two things for me are exciting. The Magick system is very versatile. It provides the GUIDE with ranges of power for spells and then in the Fantasy Guide you find explanations and ideas to craft your own spells. No more knowing what sort of spells a Wizard, Druid or whatnot will have just from years of gaming experience. The second is that our Adversary Section provides multiple takes on each species/creature. This provides the GUIDE with many sources of inspiration ad new ways to befuddle their players.
