100 Monster Hunts

ADD TO WISHLIST >
Watermarked PDF
$4.99

Cie shouldered the heavy knapsack, it's bloodstained bottom still dripping red droplets onto the cavern floor. She grunted as the weight shifted onto her left shoulder, and began the steep climb back to civilization.

She knew they needed money. But the parchment Bhardak spotted nailed to the tavern bounty board seemed too good to be true from the start. 3,000 gold for the head of a giant? Easy money. Of course, the locals hadn't really seen the beast themselves. And nobody knew about it's pet. 
Maybe next time they'll do more scouting and research on the job before marching in and almost getting themselves killed. Though as she winced from  the wound in her side where the beast savaged her, she couldn't help but grin. 

It's going to be one hell of a payday. 


What lies within this book?

This book has been designed to help Dungeon Masters quickly establish small bounties, quests or plot hooks when populating a town, village, city or general questing noticeboard.  In this 36 page supplement you will find  100 monster - themed quests, using official D&D 5e content from the Monster Manual, Volo's Guide to Monsters, and Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes. 

Each quest has been outlined with a bounty advertisement for your players, and additional quest details for the DM, including named NPCs, plot or objectives, loot and treasure rewards, as well as helpful page references for each item or monster used in the quest. 

Need something quick and don't want to drag through all 100 hunts to find something? Just roll a d100 and consult the table to quickly whip up a sudden quest whenever you need it, or roll on one of the 9 smaller tables, organised by recommended level!
The hunt tables give you a quick overview of the expected difficulty of the quest for 4 and 6 players, the recommended level, whether the rewards are monetary, magical or both, and even lists the books required to run the encounter. 

So what are you waiting for? Give yourself a chance to flex those RP muscles and have your players ready their weapons - it's monster hunting time!

Contents:

  • 100 different bounty quests, using official WOTC content
  • Encounters balanced for different levels of play, from 1st and 2nd upwards to 20.
  • Pre-designed treasures and rewards, including magic items, all with handy  page references.
  • Named NPCs and locations that remain vague enough to easily tweak or throw into any campaign setting.
  • A focus on utilizing creatures rarely or otherwise not often used in regular settings 
Here are a few page samples from the PDF, click on the images to enlarge them!

Hey I was reading the reviews and Andre nailed it on the head with what I wanted to get through in my comment.

“For the price you can't really expect much more then this but I would have enjoyed this a lot more if it was only say 20 encounters and the rest of that page space was devoted to flushing those encounters out a lot more then whats given.”

I realize now that increasing the price above $5 might not be the best decision but just reducing the number of hunts and the quality of each hunt would be a massive boost to the staying power of the book. And when people read “100 Monster Hunts” they expect actual monsters, not humans, bandits or drow. So having 20-30 detailed hunts on MONSTEROUS monsters with loot based off scavenging the corpse would be amazing for quality.

Its pretty decent for $5 but what would really add some flare is increasing the price to $7-10 and improving the quality of individual monster hunts. The table itself is good to use a number of times but there is little variety between each hunt.
"Kill every monster on the list until its dead, collect your gold + 1 other piece of reward". The other reward given is sometimes pretty good such as "A battered old scroll detailing the location of a long forgotten dragons lair" because this provides the GM with a hook to drive the players in a direction and get other things done along the way.

Other good rewards used are; Handwritten ‘thank you’ note, (The rewards on “Family Matters” hunt), Common & Uncommon magical items, etc. I find that the most memorable rewards for these quests are ones that give a sense of personality to the world, I find far too many rewards that are 100gp and a Potion of X Healing, These just make the NPC’s and their hunt very forgettable....See more

I'm glad you've enjoyed the book so far, and thank you for your feedback!
The community has been brilliant in giving me plenty to consider, so I will certainly look into expanding future hunts to encompass more interesting rewards and encounter solutions as per your suggestions above. :)

Awesome! I forgot to mention but I really like how you used uncommon monsters as often as possible, this really gave a unique feel to the encounters instead of the 2d4 wolves you would find in the WotC modules.

Looking forward to buying this soon but I'm DM'g a party of 3. Any reccomendations on how to adjust for that many?
Customer avatar
Vall S September 16, 2018 5:46 pm UTC
CREATOR
Hi Jacob, thanks for the support!

As to your question, it depends on your party composition and tactics. Perhaps allow the party to hire a ranger or guide to help "hunt" the creatures, or give your group more hints towards a creature's weakness or lair.
You could also allow your players to level up a few levels more prior to taking on a particular bounty.

If they are level 4, for example try offering them a medium difficulty bounty recommended for 4 3rd level players, as that should work out to be an high medium / low hard encounter for your players instead.
I hope this helps!

Hey Vall, this is a great product! Is there any way you could make it so the text is copy/pasteable? Or even have a text only version? I'm wanting to add this to my DnD OneNote but separate them out by level, but it's a lot to retype.
Customer avatar
Vall S August 07, 2018 2:19 pm UTC
CREATOR
Hi Jeremy, thanks for the kind words!
If you've purchased a copy, version 2 has been released which should allow the PDF to be searchable and the text to be copy/pasted.
Version 2 also has a collection of new tables that randomizes the hunts by recommended level, if that helps!

Jeremy P August 07, 2018 2:52 pm UTC

Oh awesome! I hadn't tried copy/paste in version 2. That's perfect. Thanks!

-Edit-
It allows me to select the text, but not copy/paste it. But having the extra tables and levels next to the full text of the bounties made everything much easier to navigate.

Hi Chris, thanks for the comment! I'm in the process right now of making the finishing touches to version 2.0. Added in the Morothex quest, fixed a few other small details, and more importantly, I've added 9 additional smaller tables that separate the hunts by recommended level and added page references for each!

Hi Vall S,

I apologize for the late reply. I checked my library, but version 2.0 was not there :(

I haven't purchased the item, yet (because I was waiting for the updates to take effect). I think that's probably why I didn't see it.

If I buy it now, does that mean I'll receive version 2.0 ?

Thanks, Vall S :)

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.
