noun. A term, often used by gamers, to describe a quest in an RPG game in which the player must obtain an object or objects to complete the quest. While in the process, they may come into contact with enemies, obstacles, and or general head ache. After the player has obtained the object, the quest is completed, and the character is awarded with a tivial reward. Most gamers hate fetch quests, and games such as Aika Online are full of them.
Yeah, it's just a simple fetch quest. Just go get a bucket of milk and give it to the farmer.

Gah! I have to get a stupid glowing rock for only 1000 XP?!?! I hate fetch quests!
