A Pathfinder Roleplaying Game GM'S RESOURCE by Creighton Broadhurst and Julian Neale
Got barely enough time to prepare the module? Want to include cool, evocative random encounters in your games, but just don't have the time to prepare them? Bored of pointless random encounters comprising bands of generic monsters that only seem to exist to attack wandering PCs? Then Random Woodland Encounters II is for you!
Presenting eight ready-to-use random encounters ranging in EL from 2 - 7 (and 18 stat blocks ranging from CR 1/3 - 5) all suitable for use in any woodland or forest, Random Woodland Encounters II takes the pressure off the time-crunched GM, enabling him to concentrate on crafting cool, evocative adventures!
- A Fate Worse Than Death (EL 5): Two humans are trapped in a ruined farmhouse by otherworldly attackers. Without aid, they will soon undergo a horrifying transformation.
- Broken Road (EL 2): During a rainstorm, a portion of the road the PCs must take collapses. When they draw closer, an unfortunate traveller caught in the collapse and now clinging to the cliff below calls for aid.
- Hunters Hunted (EL 7): A powerful owlbear lurks in the wood with its ravenous young.
- Master of the Yellow Cavern (EL 6): A quickling ranger of cruel mien lurks beyond a chasm in a small cave. His yellow musk creeper guardian and its zombie welcome any intruders into his home.
- Riderless Horse (EL 3): A riderless warhorse canters toward the PCs. Using their wits and not their blades, they can calm the horse to gain a new mount and the contents of its saddlebags.
- Sir Valio Ilmonen (EL 2): The PCs encounter a sneering, arrogant knight of the order of the cockatrice. He may join the party for a short while or challenge a warrior to single combat.
- Spiders (EL 3): A giant spiders and its numberless young lurk in a thicket of trees in dense woodland. A ensnared and envenomed dwarf struggles weakly among their webs.
- The Blades and the Staves (EL 5): The PCs encounter the survivors of an adventuring party drowning their sorrows around a campfire.
