Barovia Random Encounters on the Old Svalich Road - Curse of Strahd



Traveling through Barovia, the party trudges along the Old Svalich Road. The mists have grown deep and obscure all long vision. Suddenly you hear a sound – or do you? Is that a shape in the fog ahead? Readying your weapons and incantations, you slow your approach. Whatever lay ahead, you’ll be ready for it. Or will you?

20 RANDOM ENCOUNTERS for CURSE OF STRAHD for only $2? That’s just ten cents per encounter!

NEW! Pick up the Roll20 compatible MAPS & TOKENS pack today!

Add spice and enhanced storytelling to all your random encounters in the Curse of Strahd campaign with this random encounter supplement pack. Creatively crafted encounters build stories and context, and give players real decision-making and problem solving incentives. It’s not fun to just say, “okay, you come across three zombies…roll initiative,” when instead you can have a whole self-contained little scenario in which they can really engage.

Also includes two PRINTER FRIENDLY versions without the parchment backgrounds and some additional colors removed for your convenience.

Barovia: Random Encounters is a compilation of 20 random encounters to spice up gameplay of the Curse of Strahd campaign. Difficulty and specifics of encounters should be scaled by the Dungeon Master to create a challenge appropriate to your party where they currently stand. These encounters, as written, should be engagingly challenging for a party of 4-5 adventurers level 7-8. You should change up the stat blocks or number of combatants to be appropriate. The story‘s the important part; it’s up to you to balance combat.

Where possible, white boxes with creatures’ hit points have been provided for the convenience of the Dungeon Master to track damage during combat, if this collection is printed out.

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.
