A Dozen Fortuitous Encounters

A Dozen Fortuitous Encounters

Watermarked PDF

Fantasy roleplaying games are dominated by encounters, with each different encounter moving the story forward in some way. Whether random or planned, encounters are the backbone of every campaign. String enough encounters together and you’ve constructed an adventure.

Random encounter tables can be a lot of fun, yes, but they’re often hollow collections of scraps that the GM must then assemble into a meaningful experience. To give you, the gamemaster, a bit of assistance when it comes to random encounters, the dozen concepts that follow include much more than just a fragment of an idea.

As always, these encounters are loose by design. My goal is to give you something between a single sentence of an idea and a detailed encounter. Select any one of these and, with a little time, make it your own.

This PDF was created thanks to the support of 1,951 backers who joined in the Kickstarter campaign for A Dozen Sinister Rumors. Thank you to all of the supporters for making that campaign a success!

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.
