Play It Tonight!

175 descriptions bring excitement to any simple trip through the woods!

"Into the Wildwood" provides evocative descriptions to liven up those miles of forest travel. It provides short "bits" of description and colorful settings that could be used to describe nearly any fantasy forest, regardless of the system. This is created to be an "on the go" product, which means you don’t need to read the entire work before you can use it. The descriptions are designed so that they can be randomly generated as you play or placed carefully ahead of time. It is written to be of use to both experienced and inexperienced Game Masters, particularly those who (for whatever reason) find themselves short on time or creativity.

This book includes 100 Bits of description, small pieces that can be stuck in anywhere a little description is needed, and numbered so they can be used randomly. Each Bit is also provided in index card format for ease of use by Game Masters. In addition, there are 75 other descriptions that may depict a particular place (bridge, road) or describe the seasons or weather.

The material is indexed a number of ways to allow a GM to easily find a description to fit a particular circumstance. Several descriptions are graphically depicted in the interior art by Christine Griffin.

Also included are three unique forest menaces, written especially for this book by Christopher A. Field. Provided are detailed introductions for use by the GM, and 3.5 Edition statistics of each creature.

In addition, we are pleased to feature an article that looks at how to make forests in your game realistic and yet different from each other. Written by Professor of Biology (and long-time gamer) K. H. Keeler, the article includes “Forest Kits,” quick and easy sets of information on the plants and animals common to various types of forest.

This is part of the "Harried Game Master" line of products, providing the materials we've always wished to have. Augment your imagination with products from Tabletop Adventures!

57 pages plus index cards; 75 pages total.

This product is well-written and edited to a professional standard. The monsters are original, but well within the bounds of 3.5 guidelines. The flavor text and discussions of different forest types are great. I have put much of this book in direct or [...]

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.
