This is a high-level look at the projects scheduled for Cryptiquest (updated February 2018).

Cryptiquest’s Vision

Cryptiquest is aligning production to unlock as much opportunity as possible with the brands it has created.

  1. It all starts with the CQ StoryHammer game system, a core set of rules for table-top role-playing games. The system focuses on deck-of-cards mechanics, dynamic hit-points, and completely customizable content. This system is required to build other Cryptiquest products.
  2. The Imbue role-playing game uses the CQ StoryHammer game system and is based in a practical, high-magic, planetary colonization setting.
  3. The Tales from Imbue podcast is an episodic audio show featuring monologues of random characters who had adventures in Imbue campaigns.
  4. The Copperwealth role-playing game uses the CQ StoryHammer game system and is based in a gritty, post-steampunk, super-villain setting.
  5. The Copperwealth audio series is a serial work of fiction following villainous characters as they carry out large-scale nefarious schemes.
