CZRPG’s Amazing Encounters and Places for D&D is now live. It’s a Kickstarter for a cartography enriched D&D 5e supplement.
There’s a “first 24 hours backer” reward in effect and about 23 hours for that to run when this post goes live. You can check out the details on the pitch page.
The “first 24 hour backer” reward is the one-off adventure, or a long encounter, called The Hunt. In it, the Everhungry stalks the players and DMs can scale it, so it’s suitable for characters at level 2 all the way up to 20.
If you miss this, you can buy the one-shot as an Add-on later.
CZRPG might be best known for excellent cartography. The publisher makes those maps that give virtual tabletop games impact, although you can always print them off.
There are 64 maps in the supplement, and they’re associated with 8 different locations and 56 encounters.
Those 8 locations divide;
- 2 x Coast
- 2 x Forest
- 2 x Mountain
- 2 x Swamp
There’s a regional map for each location and at least one map per encounter for six special standalone encounters. These encounters are scalable from level 1 to 20.
Each of these detailed and thorough encounters can be used in a myriad of ways, allowing you to provide an amazing experience to your players. Many of the encounters feature new creatures, and all are scalable for all Tiers of Play and their levels. In addition, gorgeous and realistic maps will add to the immersion if your group is into maps and grids.
