"Hey, do you think they're expecting us? It's their base after all... they might have some advantages, they know the battlefield better than us..." said Milva the rogue as she climbed towards the crevice in the stone that led to the goblin's cave.

"Don't be silly, they're just raiders and riff-raff... they won't be any different than their comrades back at the harbour" replied calmly Albrek, dragging himself behind her, ready to spill some bandit's blood in the name of his God.

These could very well be the last words of the unfortunate adventurers that underestimate one of the encounters you'll find in this product.

...No, Albrek, this won't be yet another easy encounter. This will be the final encounter, the culmination of the whole quest. Get ready, or die.

...And yes, Milva, you'd better watch your back because your enemies have indeed the advantage of fighting on their home turf.

In this document you'll find 8 original "boss encounters", designed to be played at the end of a dungeon, of a quest or of a story arc; each encounter comes complete with hand-drawn maps, balancing options to make it even tougher or easier, and of course... you guessed it, Lair Actions! New Lair Actions, especially tailored for the encounter, ready to take your players by surprise.

Have fun!

I really enjoy products like these, that inspire you to just start playing! The 8 encounters are all very diverse (my fav is the one with the mindflayer!), the lair actions provided seem well balanced and appropriate to the encounter. The little maps [...]

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.
