Side quests, also commonly known as Subquests, are quests which do not directly affect the main storyline. As such, they are optional but nevertheless an important part of the game. Side quests represent a major means of exploring the landscape, of equipping characters and advancing levels, and of having fun.
Which side quests you pick up depends on the choices you make as you explore the countryside and talk to, fight with and/or run away (strategically retreat, if you prefer) from characters and creatures in the game. Some side quests are added to your journal automatically when you "discover" them from actions as simple as entering an area for the first time or interacting with a character. Other times you will be given the option of accepting a side quest or not.
While their completion is optional to the overall goals of the game, it should be noted that the completion, incompletion, or manner of completion of side quests can have important effects upon your playing experience. Failure to complete a quest given by a party member, for example, can lead to their leaving your party unexpectedly.
