Encounters for Wandering Adventurers (Fantasy Dungeons)

Watermarked PDF

Encounters for Wandering Adventurers puts 90 iconic fantasy encounters at your fingertips.

More than just wandering monsters, each encounter is crafted to be memorable and fun, without derailing the adventure. Every encounter comes with "hooks" and "twists" to customize the right experience for your gaming group.

My name is John Prichard, and I live in Burbank, California. I GM three games a week, and I love introducing new players to RPGs, and encouraging them to GM. I write products to help gamers create lasting memories at the table.

I wrote Encounters for Wandering Adventures after hearing from gamer friends that their favorite moments in RPG are from surprising side-encounters. Nothing screams "fantasy adventure" like the excitement of a chance encounter or the danger of an unseen monster.

Encounters For Wandering Adventurers (Fantasy Dungeons) includes 90 system-neutral encounters featuring 23 different monsters, appropriate for low and mid-level characters exploring a subterranean environment, along with suggestions on integrating these encounters into your game.

Options are included for inspiration and variety: "Twists" that can add danger or mystery to an encounter, and "Hooks" that can further be explored by your gaming group.

Each encounter is appropriate to the monsters involved, which include:

  • Goblins
  • Gnomes
  • Halflings
  • Hobgoblins
  • Orcs
  • Giant Ants
  • Fire Beetles
  • Dwarves
  • Elves
  • Minor Demons
  • Ear-Seekers
  • Giant Rats
  • Skeletons
  • Adventurers
  • Zombies
  • Piercers
  • Kobolds
  • Thieves
  • Berserkers
  • ... and more!

Add Encounters for Wandering Adventurers to your cart now and roll up some adventure with 90 exciting encounters for any fantasy RPG!

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.
