Gothic Encounters


Experience the horror and the magic of Gothic Encounters. Designed with you in mind, Player and DM alike. Dark comedy, dark fantasy, paranormal romance, and splatterpunk dangers await in this collection of Tier 1 adventures for a party of four.

When last did you practice your Do-Re-Mi’s? Have you an eye for detail? Ever cosplay a zombie? The Domain of Devotion beckons every overachiever from the multiverse to be the very best there is.

See for yourself what players are talking about:

“Some of the twists were surprising.” M.

“I enjoyed Ghostsinger. It was different and heartwarming.” S.

“The adventures were so much fun.” C.


10 all-new adventures in this gothic collection: 

•  All They Do Is Moan (Level 1) Making friends with zombies isn’t as easy as it looks, tastes, or even smells. A zombie rave awaits. Wait, are you the bard in this dark comedy?

•  As the Wereraven Flies (Level 2) It might be time for these birds to bust out of their coop. Escape room-style play.

•  Death Without Dreams (Level 3) A tragic love story needs a new ending and fast before the eclipse between two worlds ends in this paranormal romance.

•  Fistful of Horrors (Level 3) The frontier isn’t safe for cutthroats and cheats with a vigilante death knight around in this dark fantasy.

•  Ghostsinger (Level 2) The haunting performance of a ghost leaves the spine tingling for more in this dark fantasy.

•  How to Serve Dragon (Level 2) This worrisome menu could use a few more bold options in this biological horror.

•  Laboratory of the Vampire (Level 3) A reclusive scientist has weird history with his frustrated neighbors, including you in this dark fantasy.

•  On the Doorstep of Night (Level 2) An ancient artifact awakens to a world unfamiliar with its brand of violence in this splatterpunk adventure where everyone is a target.

•  Tender Skins (Level 1) A zombie struggles to find meaning in a world indifferent to its kind in this LGBT-friendly dark fantasy.

•  That Thin Glass Vial (Level 3) Everyone can become a light snack in the never-ending war between the fiends and the undead. A unique item holds the key to salvation. Grab it before it grabs you.


New Magic Items, including Zombie Garments. If you they can’t eat you, join ‘em!

New Creatures, including the all-new Patchwork Zombie that lets you mix and match with other creatures to create and reflavor undead encounters, like the displacer beast patch or the minotaur horns patch.

The all-new Arcane Skeleton, Drow Skeleton and Drowgon that fuses a drow and black dragon for sinister effect.

Test your might against Slimmer the young gold shadow dragon. He's just as wicked and committed to a cause as you are thinking.

Here’s a sample of what awaits you in this adventure collection:

We are always around! Was wondering if you would be interested in having this converted into a module for play with the FG virtual tabletop and bring it to another audience.

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.
