Dragon Scales Encounter Encyclopedia
Dragonscales is a fantasy campaign realm filled with the normal wizards, vampires, dark creatures, and deadly encounters. In this realm dragons rule the night skies and terrify the populaces of every land. Only the heroes (player characters) are bold enough to face these dragons; fight them; and tack their magical scales to use in further quests.
This tome presents many entries from the collective works of three decades of game design, storytelling, and unique adventures designed and ran across this time using a hand-full of RPG games. Entries into this encyclopedia come from half a dozen creative individuals who crafted the creatures and characters in their short stories or created memorable encounters in adventures.
Why an Encounter Encyclopedia? An excellent question. The quick answer is that not everything we encounter is a ‘monster’ nor are they necessarily a friend. Certainly, many are, as you will see in these pages; however, the world that you create should be filled with life. The good, the bad, the indifferent, and most important the beautiful, the exotic, and the mythical. It simply makes the game more exciting and fills those dull journey’s from the Town to the gateway of an adventure with interesting moments. This collection presents nearly 200 encounters for use in your campaign world.
