Random Urban EncountersThis week, Raging Swan Press is proud to announce the release of Random Urban Encounters a Pathfinder Roleplaying Game compatible GM’s RESOURCE by Ben Armitage and Creighton Broadhurst.

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 Urban Encounters is for you! Presenting eight ready-to-use random encounters ranging in EL from 1 – 6 (and 18 stat blocks ranging from CR 1/4 – 5) all suitable for use in almost any urban area.

Random Urban Encounters takes the pressure off the time-crunched GM, enabling him to concentrate on crafting cool, evocative adventures!

Encounters include:

Double Dealings (EL 6): The PCs interrupt a mugging. Or do they?
For the Birds (EL 3): A pack of tengu thieves targets the PCs and a riotous chase through a busy marketplace ensues!
Ghouls in the Graveyard (EL 4): A pair of ghouls infest a graveyard and a local noble asks for the PCs’ help
Law & Order: The Taxman (EL 4): Every town needs taxes and tax collectors love dealing with cash-rich adventurers.
Law & Order: The Watch (EL 5): If the PCs break the law, these fellows appear.
Shop ‘til You Drop (EL 1): A small girl begs the PCs to help her father who is being attacked by a “nasty man.”
Thieves, Cutthroats & Pick Pockets (El var.): Thieves are common in any town and adventurers are known to carry much wealth…
‘Ware the Wererat (EL 4): A thug mugged the wrong mark one night and has now undergone a horrific transformation. Terrified for his life, the mugger’s accomplice begs for the PCs’ help.

And don’t forget, Random Urban Encounters is a Dual Format PDF and is included in Raging Swan’s Free PDFs promotion. It also comes with an additional PDF presenting all the product’s stat blocks so the GM can easily add the featured NPCs to his stat block library.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar “Living” campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave’s first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft).

Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
