The term 'Questing'
dates back to 1995 when two brothers struggled to find the right words
to describe the type of live adventures they were creating. They launched
a company called Quest Experiences hoping to show their clients that their
adventure hunts were more of an 'experience' than anything else. Over
the years, the term 'Questing' (named after the company they started)
began to catch on with those that wanted to learn about the live adventures
that Quest Experiences was producing.
In an effort to provide a sufficient description and even a 'how-to' for
Quest creating and setting up, we've posted a Building a Quest Course.
The 'course' is made up of different chapters that will each detail different
aspects of creating, planning and facilitating a Quest for someone else
or a group of people. The course is far from exhaustive in information,
however we believe that it will offer a sufficient foundation for those
that would like to get started with Questing. Additionally, we also offer
a free sample mini-Quest scenario on the final page of the course. It's
HIGHLY suggested that you DO NOT read this sample Quest without first
going through the mini-course. Quests can sometimes seem a bit overwhelming
when you come at them cold. Reading through the course will help you understand
better what you're reading when you go through the sample and you'll be
MUCH more excited to set it up for someone!
Below is a list of the different course topics in the order that they
are presented. If you would like to begin at the start (a great place)

linked as you go.
