1001 Flowing Fountains

Watermarked PDF

With 1001 Flowing Fountains, when you roll a magical fountain on the random wilderness encounter table, you have hundreds of fountains with descriptions of their appearance, their water, and their effects, just ready to drop into your campaign. They don't like every other fountain, and they certainly don't work like every other fountain; keep your players on their toes!

1001 Flowing Fountains

The adventurers, hot and weary, straggle into the lush, green glade. At the center of the sunny clearing, surrounded by flowers, is a beautiful fountain, with a nymph pouring silvery water out of a pitcher. Near the fountain, ethereal music can be heard..

GM: You seem to have left your pursuers behind, but now you're lost, and Jarmak can't go any further.

Ranger: This isn't a good place to camp; where there's a fountain, there are people. Or … things.

Jarmak: That looks like it might be a healing fountain. I need it.

Ranger: Looks can be deceiving. It looks too good.

Mage: This looks like a good time to use my magical coin for today.

The mage finds a small pouch in his many pockets and brings out an odd, shimmering coin.

Coin of Wisdom, answer me now: Will this fountain make Jarmak healthy and well?

He flips the coin in the air and catches it: Heads.

Jarmak, the wounded fighter, staggers to the fountain, scoops up water in his helmet, and quaffs it.

GM: The coin was accurate. Jarmak is now healthy and well.

Mage: Yeah, he's a very healthy … um, Rana pipiens, I think.

Jarmak: Ribbit!

Welcome to the "1001 Things" collections

You rolled a magical fountain on the random wilderness encounter table, but you don't want it to look like every other fountain. You certainly don't want it to work like every other fountain.

That's where 1001 Flowing Fountains comes in handy. Here are hundreds of fountains ready for you to drop into your campaign. With descriptions of the fountains, their water, special effects, and of course what they do and how often, you'll have a fountain on hand any time you need one.

Of course, you can just use the parts of the description you need, too. You already know that fountain will allow people who drink from it to fly for 10 minutes – that's how they're going to get to the castle in the clouds. But what does it look like? "Um, a regular fountain" doesn't sound too good. "it's stone, and it has a central jade statue of a centaur pouring milky brown water from a vase" is much better. And there are 1000 other ones in the collection, which you can use as is, add your own effects, or mix and match.

For quick use, this is the perfect list to keep in your GM's notebook (or its computer equivalent, nowadays) and have at hand when you need a quick fountain. You can roll 3d10 to select one, take the next one off the list, or pick one that looks interesting to you. And, of course, you can swap the descriptions and effects as desired

Look for more things in the 1001 Things series, with convenient, ready-to-use items for your roleplaying games.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
