The Blasted Earth Edition

This tome represents 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. As this work is an on-going effort as it were, some of these encounters are brief, somewhat incomplete minor encounters or thoughts from notes dating back to the 1980’s. Your commentary, suggestions, and illumination of that which needs enhancement or correction is much appreciated and will help us to build an exciting and valuable resource for Game Masters and writers the world over.

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.
