Need fantasy adventure ideas in wilderness or frontier areas? Use our SideQuest Decks: Wilderness & Frontier Fantasy. Each card is a dynamic adventure!

Draw a card for an adventure outline. The outline includes backstory, ways to get the PCs involved, encounter possibilities, and follow-up ideas. The other side of the card is  the most important map for that adventure. Use maps from other cards as needed.

Each adventure in this deck has a fantasy theme in a wilderness or frontier setting. SideQuest Decks are perfect for stocking a hex crawl or developing a side trek on the fly.  You may even chain several together for an entire campaign!

This product revises our prior Encounter Decks.  The adventure outlines were sorted into decks by setting and over one-third are new. The map on the card is also now the most important map to that adventure (previously it was a random map) and about half of the maps are new.

Note: The PDF is set up to be printed duplex (two-sided), 4 cards per page.  So the upper right card on the front side of each page matches up to the upper left card on the back side. There are also white marks near the corners of each card which are guides to use when cutting the cards.  This extra area (1/8") on the edge of each card is called a "bleed" which is intended to be cut away. It allows a card to still look good even if the cut isn't perfect or if the front and back prints aren't perfectly aligned.

This is just one of several Sidequest Decks we've created based on different genres & settings. ; Here is the full list:

Do you have a terrain key for the larger scale maps please?

Your PDFs won't open in any reader I've tried. What's up with that?

Anyone else having an issue? My best guess is a download went bad or something like that because the files haven't changed in months and previews are auto-generated from the same files. Maybe try downloading again?

I'm also having no luck opening sidequests-wildernessfrontier-hp.pdf - deleted and dl'd again with the same result.

The sidequests-wildernessfrontier-4up.pdf opens fine.

Yep, that appears to be what it was. The eighth time I downloaded it apparently downloaded correctly. Thanks for the quick response.

For me it was the other way around. Seems like maybe DTRPG is having some kind of issue?

I had a couple page timeouts trying to load, so that's likely it.

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.
