Encounters Fantasy Scenarios

Watermarked PDF

Fantasy Encounters provides a method for generating adventures on the fly. The tables demonstrate how the classic wandering monster should not be generated based on time, but instead added as a series of usually escalating bad situations. Each event might build from the previous, or all could calm down as the adventure moves forward from phase to phase. Created as a companion of the Fantasy Mission Generation, these mechanics have been used successfully to play flip-card adventures with or without a Ref. I’d call them random, except these are not just percental dice dumps of a monster manual. Includes examples of personal encounters, campaign events and Digression tables to reunite the players after mishap. Complete rules as published at LA conventions in 1990.

Sorry, pasted the wrong comment in.

Encounters Fantasy Scenarios is a wealth of source material to allow the Referee and Players navigate through a Fantasy world with zero prep time. Of course you can insert your own ideas or you can all be amazed by what you find around the next corner.

The creatures not your standard Tolkien fare (heck you've had enough of that anyway), they are both rational and dangerous.

This includes both Travel on the King's Highways and Travels in dark, expansive underworlds. Expect surprises. Bring your swords.

I have my copy from 25 years ago and it is well used but the content is not exhausted.

Five Stars.

Scanned image
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.
