Slips, Trips & Flying Turnips: Random Events for Combat Encounters


The idea that we enter combat in a vacuum is preposterous; life is always happening around us. Contained in this small supplement is a list of tables that contain random, rollable events for Urban, Dungeon and Wilderness settings. The DM will choose how to use these, but they are designed primarily to add a bit of interest to your combat encounters beyond "stand adjacent and bash" styles of combat that can be easy to fall into.

Some of these events have the potential to lead to sidequests, introducing NPCs… any number of things.

The events presented in the tables are meant as suggestions…. as DM you might feel that the direction given in the text is unfair or not suited to the context, so adapt as you see fit. Think of these as possible directions, ways to spark ideas, introduce sidequests or NPCs... whatever you like. And of course if you don’t like what you get, roll again!

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.
