Welcome to the GM's Day sale! From now through March 10th, this title has been marked down by up to 40%! For more values, visit our GM's Day sale page.

This deck has nearly 70 sidequests centered on many different traditional fantasy monsters!

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

Each card is a mini-adventure. One side is an outline which starts with some background game master information then a couple of ways to begin the quest. Next are several key encounter ideas (use some or all of them or modify them, based on your party’s actions), and finally a follow-up idea or two. The other side of the card is the main map for the adventure. Need more maps for other encounters? Fan through the cards and you’re sure to find something that fits the situation.

Like most of our Sidequest Decks, each card is designed to be its own quest. However, this deck includes two cards which list which monsters are on each card. Combine that with a list of which monsters have what traits on the Inkwell Ideas website (search Inkwell Ideas Monsters by Feature), and you can pick a few sidequests for your PCs to collect monster parts needed to craft a magic item or perform an arcane ritual!

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 is also an extra area (1/8") on the edge of each card called a "bleed". It 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.


Inkwell Ideas makes many useful tabletop RPG accessories, including the following:

PURCHASER
What can I say, Facebook mentioned the sidequest decks to me today. Bought the Dungeon set on the company page, then came here and picked up 4 others (this is one of them).

Cards are likely a great purchase, I had to go cheap on pdfs. Not willingly though.
I can say these are superb as a product.

Regardless, the products are colourful and well executed.
I was fortunate to encounter them on sale at 1.99
If done as a 9 image per page format, they become worthy as the normal full 5 bucks.

Files are either full page or done as 4 per side with reverse image next page.
I'm thinking of just printing them full size for my amusement and binding them as a book.
I'd like to suggest the pdfs be given a nine card per side format though so they can be printed out better as cards (most cards are done this way.

I won't mind getting these as a black and white small book that I can combine into a single article for all 5 of my purchases. Or I might...See more

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.
