100 Encounters for Fantasy Oceans - Supplement for Zweihander RPG


The sea is a dangerous place and those who regularly sail on it know to treat it with respect. The weather is dangerous and those onboard a ship know they are in a fragile vessel skimming along the top of potentially vast, and hostile, depths. This supplement has 100 different encounters that can be used to add more detail to a sea voyage. Some of the encounters hare potentially hazardous, others are odd and some may be a source of potential adventure hooks. Most of the encounters assume that the characters are travelling in some sort of ship on the ocean's surface, but they could be tweaked.

This PDF supports Adobe layers and the page backgrounds and images can be disabled to make printing easier.

Here are some sample results:

  • Parts of the sea appear to have been netted off. Rope nets stretch from the floor to the surface, held in place at the top by floats.
  • Patches of burning oil dot the surface of the water, and have the potential to set the ship on fire if sailed through (a (Routine +10%) Pilot Test or the ship will sail into the burning oil and may start to burn).
  • Pieces of rock are floating on the surface of the water. On examination (a (Routine +10%) Education Test), they prove to be chunks of pumice.
  • Rats boil up onto the deck from below. They head to the sides and throw themselves into the water, biting anyone who tries to stop them or doesn't move out of the way quickly enough (treat as a Large Swarm).
  • Reddened water marks where a large slick of blood covers the surface.

Two pages are the front and rear covers.

Publisher Stock #
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.
