Encounters in the Savage Frontier

"Incredibly useful encounters...", "Very useful book!"

What could happen while traveling the vast Savage Frontier?  Just about anything!

This 72-page supplement contains encounters written by Seven Best-Selling Dungeon Masters Guild writers and two new writers!

*This is the PDF version.  Looking for the Fantasy Grounds version?  Click HERE!*

Encounters in the Savage Frontier includes 24 unique encounters of various difficulty that can be used while the adventuring party travels the Savage Frontier.  It also includes several new creatures and magic items, digital hand-drawn maps (10 as downloadable .jpg files), and original artwork.  Some of the encounters are short and brief, while others may take you a full gaming session to complete.

Even though the inspiration for this collaboration project developed while reading Storm King’s Thunder, the 24 stand-alone encounters can be used with any official D&D campaign or in your own home campaign.  Location suggestions are mentioned but most are written in a generic setting.  You could even use a few of these encounters while playing Tomb of Annihilation!

A few preview images:

We each had a blast working on this project.  We hope you have just as much fun using the encounters.  Enjoy!

Want even more encounters?  Pick up Encounters in the Savage Cities for only $6.95!  26 city-based encounters/mini-adventures designed for when the adventurers spend a little time in an urban location.

I've uploaded a separate PDF that includes Scaling Suggestions for many of the encounters.

Did you include that in the fantasy grounds version as well?

Jake, I apologize. The FG .mod has not been updated, and the PDF has not been added to that version. Would you like the scaling PDF with the FG .mod, too? I'm not sure if I'll be able to have the actual .mod file updated to include the scaling suggestions.

Can you clarify what you updated today? There are so many files to download listed above. Did you update the supplement?

I'm sorry, but no. They are two being sold as two different products.

Nicely done and written. I especially like the light treatment of the encounters. It doesn't feel like I have a lot to remember to run these, and that's always a plus!

I love this product, but can I get a copy of the maps without grids for use on Roll20?

Albert, I'm happy to hear that you enjoy the product! Unfortunately, the maps were commissioned, and I only have a few without the grids. I've uploaded five .jpegs that will hopefully help you on Roll20 (three without the grids).

Rules Edition(s)
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.
