A Dozen Strange Encounters

Not all encounters must be the typical “you meet a wizard” or “there are seven goblins” events that we’ve seen played time and time again over the decades. At times, it is up to you, the gamemaster, to remind the players that their characters are adventuring in a world of make believe, fairy tales, and the fantastic. It is for those times that I have created A Dozen Strange Encounters . . . some of which may be too strange for even your campaign world.

As with other entries in this series, I have designed each encounter so that it fills a single page. This makes it easier for you to print only the specific encounter that you need for your next game session.

Over the years I have written RPG supplements, I have been driven by the words of David “Zeb” Cook from his foreword to the 2nd edition Dungeon Master’s Guide. 

“Add, create, expand, and extrapolate. Don’t just let the game sit there, and don’t become a rules lawyer worrying about each piddly detail. If you can’t find the answer, MAKE IT UP! And whatever you do, don’t fall into the trap of believing these rules are complete. They are not. You cannot sit back and let the rule book do everything for you. Take the time and effort to become not just a good DM, but a brilliant one.”

Even today, decades after I first read that paragraph, I try to never allow the game rules to restrict my imagination. I hope that you do the same and go wild.

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!

Format
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.
