More Random Encounters Remastered by Purple Duck Games

This product is 34 pages long. It starts with a cover and credits. (2 pages)

Introduction (7 pages)
It starts off talking about how to use the product and what makes a random encounter interesting and more than just combat. It is a well written start that helps one set up memorable random encounters that will be just as fun and interesting and the main adventures. With plenty of terrain write ups and other examples of things that can be added to random encounters. There is also a small table of random clues, items to help explain why there is a encounter later. I would have liked to have seen a much bigger table here. It is nice but a bit limit. Of course it is just a bonus.

Expanded Tables (21 pages)
Here is the random encounter tables they are set up for any level. How they manage this is you add to the number rolled based on the party level. The tables are below, each one also has a disposition and terrain features which was discussed in the previous chapter.
Frigid Peaks
Grandmarket Places
Haunted Ruins
The Road
Storm Wracked Coast
Undercity

It ends with a OGL and contact info. (4 page)

Closing thoughts. The art work is black and white and pretty good. Editing and layout was very good, I didn't notice any errors. The tables and advice was really well done. All of the tables where outstanding along with adding in terrain and the disposition tables just added a lot of value. I thought these encounter locations where as a whole better than the first book, but since this is a series it is a moot point. Since eventually I hope every possible location is covered. So what's my rating? I am going to give this one a 5 star rating. What is covered is covered well. I think these are outstanding random encounter tables.

Trust me, I'm a Succubus.

This pdf is 34 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 4 pages SRD, leaving 28 pages of content for Purple Duck Games' latest compilation of random encounter tables, so let's take a look...

I already elaborated on my relation with random encounters in the review of this file's predecessor, so I won't bore you with a repetition of it. I'm rather excited to see whether this installment holds up to the standard of the stellar predecessor. So, what exactly do we get in this installment?

We kick off with techniques and advice to foreshadow random encounters, e.g. via 8 clues or via dispositions (first introduced in the predecessor of this pdf). Here, the sample is the watery mayday-scenario, again with 8 different ready-made examples. To make sure that our random encounters don't happen in an amorphous vacuum, we are introduced to a wide variety of new terrain features and even a new hazard before we delve into the massive crunchy tables of this installment:

First are the Frigid Peaks, going up to 460 on the d%-table two new hazards/traps and disposition and terrain features. The Grand Marketplace, Haunted Ruins, The Road, Storm-wrecked Coasts and even an Undercity, the extremely detailed locations make this installment just as useful as its predecessor.

Conclusion:
Editing and formatting are top-notch, I didn't notice any glitches. Layout adheres to the 2-column standard and the b/w-artwork is neat. The pdf comes with extensive bookmarks. Once again David Nicholas Ross delivers more tools for the ever hungry DM's toolkit and the quality and usability of the presented material is once again, excellent. Although, at this point I have to admit that I'd love to see a book devoted to dispositions in the future. As written, I enjoyed the pdf especially due to the low price and quality of both the tables and crunchy bits herein. If you're looking to expand a toolbox even further after e.g. RSP's Caves & Caverns and the predecessor of this neat pdf, this will be exactly what you've been clamoring for. My final verdict will thus be once again 5 stars with the disclaimer that in the third installment I'd like to see more dispositions and/or unique terrain-specific hazards/terrain features.

Endzeitgeist out.
