Barovian Nights - 101 Ravenloft Encounters

Welcome, stranger. I almost didn't see you there, the mist being what it is at this time of year. You don't look like you're from around here, maybe you could use some directions?
Look here, don't be frightened, I'm not a ghost.
Down that way is the village of Barovia - not a great place to start, if you ask me. Depressing, unless you're into rats and sour wine.
Over there is Vallaki, though it's quite a trek, and it's coming on to nightfall. 
Yes, I'm sure you can take care of yourself, but watch out for the wolves. Our wolves are different. 
Up there? You mean the castle? Oh, no. I wouldn't go there. The Master doesn't appreciate being disturbed by visitors, not at this hour, he'll just be waking up.
Look, why don't you come back to our camp with me. Madame Eva sees all sorts of truths in the cards - she's something of a fortune teller.
Perhaps she can help you. Don't touch the crystal ball, though. She's very particular about that.

Well-written and easy to use. My players nearly always comment on how cool that encounter was when I drop one of these in to a game. Couldn't be happier and hope to see a second volume as I'm running Rloft regularly now=) [...]

All of the 101 encounters are fun and interesting. I was able to make a set of random encounter tables with these encounters and the ones from the CoS book. I can't wait for my players' reactions to these! Also, I had planned expanding Curse of Stra [...]

A great, detailed enounter list for Curse of Strahd or other Ravenloft compaigns. There is also plenty of bonus short suppliments in the back- I won't use all of them, but they are neat little single-page ideas you can hand-pick and use to personalize [...]

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.
