Triboar Trail Non-Combat Encounters


Six Tables of Obstacles, Hazards and Memorable Events for Wilderness Travel.

This set of tables was written to be used with Part 3 of the Lost Mines of Phandelver adventure included in the 5th Edition Starter Set, but it can be added to any campaign taking place in a temperate mountainous region. It can also be used as a source for generating details and complications for other adventures.

You will discover that the events described here are of the “interesting” variety; more remarkable than an ordinary day’s travel, but not so fantastical to distract from the current quest itself. Many are drawn from real life accounts. 

Along with traditional woodcut illustrations and easy to follow instructions you will find tables for:

  • Sparsely Forested Plains
  • Pine Forest
  • Foothills
  • Roads and Trails
  • Weather
  • At Night / In Camp

This document also includes design notes and a list of resources to help add even more content to your game.

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.
