Sidequest Decks: Frontier Town Quests

ADD TO WISHLIST >
Selected Option:

These mini-adventures are designed for a fantasy frontier, in a mountainous arctic area. Use them to populate a hex crawl, fill out a campaign, or inspire oneshot games. When players steer away from your prepared encounters, use sidequests to offer alternatives! This deck has 72 cards, more than most of our other Sidequest Decks.

This is part of our Sidequest Decks series with sidequests for many genres & settings.

The adventures can use your original NPCs and settings. You can get more ideas and support by combining them with our NPC Portraits Deck: Frontier Town describing Icebreath Ridge.

51 sidequests were inspired by a matching card in the NPC deck, so you can expand on the secrets and needs of those NPCs. You can use sidequests to introduce them, or to grow their roles once characters choose them as friends—or enemies.

Two Events!

In addition, there are 18 sidequests based around a big event that affects the whole area! One card explains the situation, and nine adventures provide threats and opportunities. Offer them to players in any order, and let them be part of the changes in your dynamic setting.

  • A vast sinkhole yawns open near the town overnight! What lies below?
  • Spring does not come. Ice and hunger cover the land. Can the town survive?

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.  A PDF is also included with each side of each card as a 3.75"x2.75" page (3.5"x2.5" plus a 1/8" bleed) so you can lay it out as you wish.

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.
