Welcome to Encounter Forge!
Thank you for visiting my page and considering to support me and my work. My name is Adam and I'm creating encounter designs, that you can drop in your session easily. They are great if you need something to put on the table in the last minute, but these are very flexible and you can integrate them into your campaign with very little work.

Why are encounter designs so good?
These are complex solutions rather than simple fights. The players may have enemies to overcome, but in the same time they have objectives to complete. In some designs the environment is more dangerous than the enemies itself, or the players can use their surroundings to gain advantage against their foes. Every encounter has its own little mechanics.

What do you get?
Encounter Design core (for tier $1+) contains two high quality PDF document with a design that resembles to the official D&D5e books. I use the D&D 5e rules to present you the mechanics. You can however convert these encounters to any d20 based RPG with ease.
Every encounter I publish is always tested with one of my playing groups!

  • Encounter Design PDF ($1+): This document contains every information that you, as a Dungeon Master will need during playing this encounter. I make this document as short as possible (usually two pages: one for the mechanics, and one for the enemies); there is nothing worse than a DM lost in his notes.
  • Map for the Dungeon Master ($1): The map is vital part of the encounter design. This version of the map contains notes for the DM: where are the enemies, the objectives, the explosives...etc. With this map, you will be able to create the battle area with your own tools (for example with your crafted terrains if you are a Crafter DM).
  • DM's Guide PDF ($1+): To keep the encounter design short, I collect every mechanics in this document that I use frequently in my encounter designs.

If you are a higher tier patron, I also give you a battlemap. These maps were created digitally in 3D and rendered out as a 2D top down maps in high resolution. I do the maps in two sizes depending what the encounter needs: small (80 ft x 55 ft) or large (115 ft x 80 ft).
I do two variation each (usually day and night), with three grid version (no grid, square grid and hexagonal grid).
  • Battlemap for digital use ($2+): These battlemaps are designed to use with digital tools, like Roll20 and Fantasy Grounds. Great if you play online, or using a TV as a battlemap. The scale of this map is set for 200x200 px sized character tokens. The small map has 3200x2200 resolution and the large one has 4600x3200.
  • Battlemap for print ($3+): These battle maps are designed to use them as printed battlemaps. I deliver these in A3 (small) or A2 (large) size with 300dpi. The printed map has 1 inch grid.

For Guild Members ($5+) and above: You will receive extra contents each month (I'm planning 1-2 per months). These are articles about certain topics, such as:
  • How I design my encounters ($5+): these articles are kind of a behind a scene types. I show you my DM notes, my resources for prototyping, and give a look at my work on the actual battlemaps.
  • Deep Thinkings and DM Mechanics ($5+): These articles could go very far. A few ideas that I already have in my mind: key elements of every encounter, player psychology, homebrew rules you should consider... and so on.
  • How to be a Crafting DM ($5+): since I'm great fan of creating my own little terrains from xps foam, I would happily share my work and ideas with you.

Your support
With your support, I can spend more time on this hobby: creating more encounter designs, experiment with mechanics. I also can buy better equipment: 3D model packages for the battlemaps, maybe a camera (I'm planning to do some crafting video in the future :)).
So will get better and better content!
