Universal Adventures Encounter Deck

Watermarked PDF

The Universal Adventures Encounter Deck is a set of 54 encounter cards for use with any fantasy adventure game.  Each card includes a title, description, and encounter information.  From Giant Bats and Rats, to Rock Scorpions and Undead Ogres, the Encounter Deck includes a wide range of opponents for your fantasy adventure games.  Also included are encounters with other adventurers and opportunities to launch additional adventures.  With the Universal Adventures Encounter Deck, you never need to be unprepared for a gaming session again.  Just select the cards you want to include in the upcoming adventure, shuffle the deck, and whenever the characters have an encounter, draw the top card from the Encounter Deck to determine what the encounter is.

The cards can also be used for solo or group games without a Game Master, to fill in the unkeyed areas of a dungeon while you play, to generate wandering monsters and more.  Combine the Encounter Deck with the Universal Adventures Dungeon Deck and you can create an adventure, complete with encounters, for any fantasy adventure role-playing game, while you play.

And where are the monsters' stats? How many damage delivers a Skeleton Warrior, for example? And how to hit him?

This is not a game but a game aid for your favorite RPG. So the stats will not be printed on the card. You have to get the stats from whatever game you are playing. Example Dungeons and Dragons Monster Manual.

File Size:

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.
