Volo's Lost Encounters


“I was instantly charmed by the first adventure, Roll for Inspiration…

These are strong adventures. They are well-written and formatted, and the maps are very good.  Overall, I highly recommend this product.

--Merric B.  (creator of influential D&D blog 'Merric's Musings')

A collection of mini-adventures to be easily used in your campaigns, featuring some of the races and lore from 'Volo's Guide to Monsters'

More than just a bunch of stats and maps, each encounter tells a story that showcases the monsters essence and its place in the world. Traverse  the territory of an artistic but deadly stone giant, foil a hag's heart-breaking plans for a paladin and much more.

Each encounter has customized maps, with versions for both PCs and DMs. Four new monsters are also found within these pages.

And while you're here, have a look below at some of my other work on the DMs Guild.

As always, reviews and feedback are welcome and encouraged.  You can reach me at or @jlorber4 on Twitter

Quick Question, for the Giant Encounter, how do you tell the Runes its not really specified and its kind of confusing me

Hi Karlo. Good question. I actually didn't provide any details about what specific Runes are carved into the ground. The map is just an abstract mish-mash of Rune-like shapes. When you run it, you can use any Rune really, it's only flavor for what's going on in the Giant's mind and doesn't really effect the encounter. Check out page 7 of 'Storm King's Thunder' for a sampling of runes. Cheers!

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.
