Overland Travel in the Silk Road Setting


This is a set of random encounter tables for the fictional Eren Basin that is the setting for our Silk Road adventures. There are tables for the Silk Road itself, for the Basin off of the Silk Road and one for the foothills. The tables could be used for any plains or semi-arid relatively level area.

Each location has a daytime encounter table and an encounter table that covers possible campsite intruders at night.

Each encounter is linked to a description. The descriptions have details in both the Glory Road Roleplay rules and OSR/D20 rules. Using other rules, the Game Master will have to come up with their own stat blocks but the tables could still be useful.

These tables are not supposed to give you major foes or friends for your player-characters, although lower-level parties might find some of the encounters important.  You can find major foes in our adventure modules or design them in your own Silk Road adventures. If your characters are going from point A to point B in your adventures, these are the people, things, and situations that they might run into.

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.
