Glossary Entry: Fetch Quest

Quick Definition

A fetch quest is a common type of quest* in games. As the name implies, you're basically being asked to go find something and bring it back to the NPC* that gave you the task.

It's sort of like giving someone a list and sending them off to the grocery store. Note that a good game will make acquiring the items fun and enjoyable; often hiding the items someplace new each time.
