Destiny Quest is a set of books that is also an interactive game. Readers of Destiny Quest choose weapons, spells and armor to customize their protagonist before embarking on a quest, similar to a tabletop role-playing game.
Destiny Quest players choose between a warrior, a rogue and a mage to begin their quest. Players also choose a career, such as inquisitor, assassin, ranger or medic. With their character-specific abilities, players engage in combat and receive rewards that help them survive longer in subsequent combat. While much of the quest is presented as story within the book's text, readers determine their own outcomes by rolling dice to randomize attack speed and damage.
