ZIP File

Last-Minute Encounters are ready-to-play encounters designed for DMs without planning time on their hands.  Simply assemble the map in the VTT of your choice, or print the fully-illustrated map using the included printable sheets.  Detailed instructions and read-outs will provide everything you need to run a fun encounter, even if you are reading them for the first time during your game!


“The Path of Fire” is a ready-to-play non-combat puzzle room that will give your players a challenging encounter.  The Path of Fire is perfect for adding to a variety of adventures and dungeons, and can be used for parties of most levels. 

This encounter is endlessly customizable and encourages players to devise a number of creative solutions.  This package comes with:

  • Customizable map available with and without gridlines
  • 32 image assets, including 16 online-ready images and 16 high-resolution images
  • Print-ready sheets for tabletop use
  • Endless pattern combinations for endless solutions
  • Ready-to-play walkthrough instructions and “On Closer Inspection” descriptions to make running the encounter simple.

The puzzle consists of 6 colored burning braziers linked to a floor made of matching magical colored platforms.  Blocking the room’s exit on the other side of the floor is a barrier of magical force.  To escape, the party must use snuffers found at the entrance to the room to extinguish the braziers along either side of the floor.  The party must reach the braziers and navigate the floor as parts of the floor progressively vanish when the corresponding colored brazier is extinguished.  

Will the party figure out the solution before the fall, or will they be forever lost on the path?

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.
