100 Strange or Unusual Encounters for Fantasy Cities

100 Strange or Unusual Encounters for Fantasy Cities

Watermarked PDF

Characters do not spend all their time in the wilderness or dungeons; they will also spend time in cities, towns and other urban areas. Urban experiences can be glossed over, but it can be more interesting to develop the cities into alternative places for adventures, not simply places to resupply and recuperate between travels. Adventuring in urban areas can be a different experience, as townsfolk and law enforcement will tend to frown on dealing violently with problems.

This is a list of 100 different encounters that characters can have in urban areas. They can be used as simply background colour, events for characters to notice but not participate in. However, should the characters choose to get involved in the encounters, they can function as adventure hooks and be developed further.

This PDF supports Adobe layers and the page backgrounds and images can be disabled to make printing easier.

Here is a sample result:

Outside a tavern, a middle-aged noblewoman falls from her madly galloping horse. The woman lands on the street with a fair amount of force and suffers a few injuries as a result. If questioned, the noblewoman says she doesn’t know what has got into her steed; she has been riding the mare for years and is an experienced rider. If the woman wasn’t, she would have suffered far more damage in the fall. Her horse has been ensorcelled by a mage in an attempt to kill the noblewoman. The mage was employed by the woman’s husband, who wants to replace her with his much younger mistress.

One page is the front cover and one page the front matter.

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.
