QUEST

by Donna Abela

Quest is a mythic story evoked by troubadours. Set loosely in medieval times, a village watches its men go off to war. A magician, seeing a chance to take control of the village, manipulates the Overlord into cursing a newly born baby, the last baby likely to be born for many years to come. During the year that follows, the villagers sink into despair as they wait for the baby's impending death. When the baby disappears, most people believe that she is dead. However, the visions of one of their children coincide with the visions of a mysterious visitor, implying that the baby is alive. Six people undertake a quest, encountering mountains and monsters, forests and dragons, rivers and spells, monks, nuns and hermits. QUEST is about overcoming despair by following hope. The characters discover the child and rectify the dark past of their village. They also discover that it is the quest, not its goal, that is the reason for living. Variable cast.
