Encounter Decks 3

Watermarked PDF

Need adventure ideas complete with ways to get the adventure started, possible encounters along the way, and a couple of follow-up possibilities? Use our latest edition of Encounter Decks!

Each card helps you build a dynamic adventure!

  • Draw a card for an adventure outline. The outline includes backstory, ways to get the PCs involved, encounter possibilities, and follow-up ideas.
  • The other side of the card is the key adventure map. Need more maps? Borrow one from another card.

This set differs from sets 1 & 2: In set 3 the map is related to the adventure on the same card.

Each adventure in this deck has a Science Fantasy or Swords & Sorcery theme. However the genres can be easily adapted by making golems into robots, make a sought-after device into a magical artifact, etc.

Encounter Decks are perfect for stocking a hex crawl or developing a side trek on the fly, or even relate several to each other for an entire campaign!

Writers: Joe Wetzel and Andrew Shields
Editors: Chad Mercer
Cartography: Tony Brotherton, Keith Curtis, Matt Jackson, and Dyson Logos

Note: The PDF is set up to be printed duplex (two-sided), 4 cards per page.  So the upper right card on the front side of each page matches up to the upper left card on the back side. There are also white marks near the corners of each card which are guides to use when cutting the cards.  This extra area (1/8") on the edge of each card is called a "bleed" which is intended to be cut away. It allows a card to still look good even if the cut isn't perfect or if the front and back prints aren't perfectly aligned.

I really liked this product. I think I'll click on the publishers name and see what else they did. I might buy those too!

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.
