The Outlander Quickening Deck of RPG Encounters

The Outlander Quickening Deck of RPG Encounters

Watermarked PDF

Card deck with 50 re-usable RPG random encounters. Bare-boned version of The Outlander deck (also available on this site) with a whole new 50 encounters. Suitable for any terrain in any tabletop roleplay game, including D&D and Pathfinder. Use them to inspire & improvise!

 "I love random decks. These random encounters are perfect for Tier 1 characters. I would use a random encounter deck like you have built."
Bill "Bilbo" Hart, playing since 1976
- one of the Original DMs


The Outlander deck is full of fleshed-out encounters, giving lots of information to help you throw the encounters at the players as written or adjusted as you feel right. The Outlander Quickening deck is packed with a whole new 50 random encounters, and this time you get the bare-bone details like the foes, loot or circumstance the party will encounter, so as with normal random encounter tables you can play them quickly and fire up the imagination around the table.

Pick up both decks, and you'll have 100 encounters to play in any game, in any terrain!


Packed with a vast array of combat & non-combat encounters, The Outlander card deck contains 50 random encounters you can play in any terrain or location. They're ideally suited for games like Dungeons & Dragons and Pathfinder.

Not just basic details like you'd find in most random encounter tables, these cards are buzzing with hooks and twists to bring every encounter to life!

This cool deck of combat & non-combat encounters, illustrated beautifully, can add spice to your campaign setting or one-shot, generating one-off scenarios or the beginning or bridge of a full adventure. The encounters will remind the players that the world they’re in is alive & kicking with or without them, that at any moment they might stumble into danger or adventure. They can also help you improv and buy you some time if the players surprise you and you’re not prepared - just pick a card and run with it until you know what to do next.

Designed to slot in whenever you need them, you can either throw these encounters as written at the players, or for an even more immersive feel, adjust the creatures, NPCs and anything else in the cards to fit your campaign setting.

"Venger's Decks are full of cool little ideas that can definitely help a GM out in creating a session, or a story, or even running an improvised little campaign.
Simple, modern cartoon-style artwork is a nice touch and lets you know that it's all about fun. It's diverse, in terms of both combat and non-combat encounters. There are a lot of cool encounter ideas ranging from simple personal party-oriented "side quests", all the way to magic encounters and puzzles.
You'll definitely have fun using these."

The Outlander Quickening Deck behind the DM/GM screen

Remember that the point of the deck is to inspire you. Feel free to flesh them out, tear at their strings, carve into them your own personality, and adapt & re-use them for years to come.

They’re a starting point, filled with enough to run with if you’re caught on the fly, but sprinkled with hooks for plot and story arcs. You can turn non-combat encounters into battles & vice-versa with a simple adjustment, depending on how the players react to the scene you present to them, or on how you feel it might fit into what else you have planned. And if the players’ decisions take the encounters in a completely new direction, roll with it!

"I’ve used them in a few one-shots and the beginning of a campaign and they enter seamlessly into the fantasy world. Even through shuffling of the printed deck as a DM the encounters are engaging and simple to run...Really effective for when there are those lulls in games or the DM wants to add a little spice to an encounter!"

"The Outlander Quickening encounters are simpler, comprised of 2-3 sentences each, do not contain any mechanics tied to a specific system, making them easy to fit in any situation...often there were some innovative twists included...I find them interesting, since they can get my inspiration going...The card format can be particularly useful in some situations, especially during a session, where looking up tables in a book or on the internet can take more time than it should."
The Kind GM

"Starting a new campaign soon (homebrew), so having some encounters ready to go which are more imaginative than I would come up with is excellent!"
Kevin Ogilvie (@OgilvieKevin)

So pick up this deck, and then watch as your players fly within the unparalleled realms of their imagination!

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.
