The Forest - Exciting Encounters 1

This PDF is the first in a series of installments dedicated to making encounters in your campaign more vibrant and exciting. The overall goal is to supply you with the tools you need to create memorable encounters for you and your players.

This installment focuses on the forest encounter. Probably the most used terrain in a fantasy setting, the forest can be bright and vibrant or dark and dense, but should never be boring. In this document you’ll find resources to make your next forest encounter exciting:

  • Maps. Four 20x20 Forest Encounter maps with different terrain features, that can be combined into one large 40x40 forest map. As a bonus, there’s also a 30x40 Forest Road version of the map, that serves well for those pesky road ambushes. All maps have gridded versions.
  • Mechanics. Ideas and mechanics for creating exciting forest encounters, including an expansion on the Wilderness Hazards found in the Dungeon Master’s Guide.
  • Encounters. Two quick sample encounters that utilizes the forest environment to create an exciting encounter: a nighttime ambush in the dense forest, and a troll lurking by a river crossing. Finally, there’s an elaborate and detailed River Ride encounter, that has your party travelling down a dangerous river, while under fire by bloodthirsty pursuers.

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.
