"More than just a wonderful collection of side treks and quick encounters to help the harried DM fill in needed gaps, the Tome of Encounters provides new monsters, interesting NPCs, and a set of rules for Haunts. It's easy to recommend this well written, well producedp roduct." -Tony Petrecca

This is the Tome of Encounters, a sourcebook of 25 awesome lairs/encounters designed to challenge characters from 1st to 10th level while showcasing the versatility of 5E D&D!

Back in the era of Second Edition, TSR, Inc. released two products called the “Deck of Encounters I & II”. Each card was presented with just the absolute basics for a DM to run a short, simple encounter. During this same time, they released a number of books called the “Book of Lairs” which each featured a different monster in its lair and an adventure hook, usually not running more than one or two pages.

Using that model, the members of the Marauders Game Group, an NJ, USA-based game club, decided to emulate those great formulas for 5th Edition with the Tome of Encounters 5E. The Tome includes all-new original adventures, many written in the style and whimsy of the Second Edition days (like our heroes of the day, including Roger E. Moore, Jeff Grubb, and Skip Williams).

If you need an hour or two to fill, or are lost for an encounter idea in a specific location (or worse, if the PCs turned left when you needed them to turn right), we hope this book fits the bill for you and provides hours of adventure!

25 new mini-adventures.
10 new or converted monsters.
6 NPC stat blocks, dozens of NPCs overall.
Conversions of old favorites like the boggle, the spellweaver and the voadkyn.
Basic rules for haunts in 5e.

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.
