Bring out the majesty and the danger of the mountains! Tabletop Adventures provides 160 ways to tell your players more than “It’s really steep.” This product provides both expansive vistas and menacing details for the use of the Harried Game Master, suitable for nearly any fantasy mountains regardless of the gaming system.

Lull your adventurers with forested trails and meadows full of wildflowers, then move on to massive boulders blocking the path and towering waterfalls which can be heard for miles. Turn up the pressure with slopes of loose rock which fall for no apparent reason, trails so steep only a mountain goat can be happy, and abandoned stone buildings perched on isolated peaks. Throw in a little mystery, with bones piled at the bottom of a cliff or a body left for the carrion birds. Top it off with a spring thaw that turns all the trails to freezing cold streams, snows that hide both landmarks and dangerous drops, or wind cold enough to freeze the flesh on one’s bones, and the true spirit of the mountains really comes through.

This book includes 100 Bits of terrain description, small pieces which 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. Sixty other pieces portray special features or the variations of seasons and weather. Several scenes are depicted in the original interior art of the Carmona Brothers. In addition, we have again included terrain “Kits,” which can help you make distinctive types of mountains in your world.<o:p></o:p>

All the interesting details are indexed so a GM can easily find a description to fit a particular need. We have also included a text-only version which can be used to cut and paste directly into your GM notes or sized into a large print version for those who prefer larger type.

Augment your imagination with Bits of the Wilderness: Into the Mountains from Tabletop Adventures.<o:p> </o:p>

48 pages plus index cards; 65 pages total.

I loved Tabletop Adventures LLC's Swamps book, and was not disappointed with this one either :) Once again brilliant descriptions of a wide variety of "believable" locations. This book is providing ideas and inspiration for adding depth to my own adventur [...]

Despite four different campaigns, three completely different worlds, two systems and a dozen different players, there is one set of books that I find myself peering through every week of game preparation, the Bits of series by Tabletop Adventures. Eac [...]

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.
