Random Woodland Encounters


A Pathfinder Roleplaying Game GM'S RESOURCE by Creighton Broadhurst and Julian NealeA Pathfinder Roleplaying Game GM'S RESOURCE supplement by Creighton Broadhurst and Julian Neale

Got barely enough time to prepare the module? Want to include cool, evocative random encounters in your games, but just don't have the time to prepare them? Bored of pointless random encounters comprising bands of generic monsters that only seem to exist to attack wandering PCs? Then Random Woodland Encounters is for you! Presenting eight ready-to-use random encounters ranging in EL from 1-9 (and 19 stat blocks ranging from CR 1/4-6) all suitable for use in any woodland or forest,Random Woodland Encounters takes the pressure off the time-crunched GM, enabling him to concentrate on crafting cool, evocative adventures!

Featured Encounters include: 

  • Bandits (EL 7): Led by a deserter and a self-centred archer of some skill, a lurking band of brigands have set two falling tree traps to catch the unwary.
  • Aftermath (EL 2): The PCs discover the site of an ambush. Lying among the dead, a few badly wounded survivors are in desperate need of help.
  • Gnolls? How Unlucky! (EL 5): A band of gnolls and their pugwampi minion fall upon the PCs’ camp during the night. 
  • Goblins of the Blood Moon (EL var.): Vicious raiders, the Goblins of the Blood Moon attack all who enter their realm. This encounter presents stats for five different types of goblins and 18 different encounter groups. 
  • Isolated Hovel (EL 4): A dilapidated hovel surrounded by thick stands of nettles and brambles hides a terrible, lurking secret in a hidden cellar.
  • Lurking Trolls (EL 9): A troll is teaching its four young to hunt. Unfortunately, for the PCs they are the prey!
  • Ogre Huntress (EL 6): An ogre huntress is exercising her three pet wolves when she crosses paths with the PCs. 
  • Shattered Bridge (EL 6): The remains of a gaunt stone bridge cross a yet raging river. The ghost of a wizard killed when the bridge collapsed haunts the area.

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.
