SIDEQUEST is the best-selling monthly digital magazine that brings you brand new fifth edition and system-neutral RPG content every month!


SIDEQUEST is inspired by the gaming magazines of old, such as Dungeon, Dragon, and White Dwarf. I got started in this hobby by devouring those magazines each month and coming away brimming with inspiration and new ideas for my games, and that is what I want for you with SIDEQUEST.


The sample issue contains:


  • The Reaver. A fighter subclass from issue 15 that builds up violence dice that they can spend for devastating results in combat.

  • The Archive of Great Depth. A fantastic location from issue 13 for you to place in your world for your players to travel to and discover the secrets of a lost civilisation and the immense knowledge they guarded.

  • Vinder’s Vault.  A collection of new magic items for you to use as quest rewards, place in dungeons, or stock the shelves of the local magical emporium.

  • The Fossegrim. A CR 6 Fey monster from issue 13 that uses magical song to lure and defeat its enemies.

  • Beneath the Bank. A short adventure from issue 23 designed to be run in a single session with zero prep, which sees a group of 1st level heroes delving into the depths of a bank vault and taking the treasures within.

  • GM Advice. Finally we have an article from issue 12 on how to structure your campaign planning like the seasons of a TV show and use that structure to bring in recurring elements, themes, and villains.
