The Game Master's Book of Traps, Puzzles and Dungeons

Selected Option:

The Game Master's Book of Traps, Puzzles and Dungeons provides GMs with endless options for populating their adventures with challenging riddles, puzzles, spiked pits, Rube Goldberg-style deathtraps and much more - everything they need to push player character to their limit and bring new levels of excitement (and anxiety) to their game play.

Whether part of a pre-planned adventure or a random encounter, these brain teasers, puzzles and traps will make every dungeon crawl, fortress break-in, or temple sacking that much more fun. GMs will find more than 60 challenging puzzles, 60 unique traps and 50 modular dungeon chambers, each with its own set of possible encounters, meaning GMs can generate a fully-functional (or completely dilapidated) dungeon in a few rolls of a dice.

Can you use this recourse be used with any TtRPG system or is it D&D specific?

Purchased this book and a little disappointed with the included dungeon rooms. Most of these are so specific that you really need the included maps in order to use it in a game. I would just scan to make them digital if they just included maps without the numbering. I don't see why it couldn't be included. The traps are fantastic, and the puzzles are great but the 50 dungeons rooms can not just be used without the maps.

A 243 page pdf needs bookmarks, especially if the PDF page numbers don't match the document numbers.

Frankly at this point, people are expecting hyperlinked TOCs and indexes, so bookmarks are not a big ask.

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.
