As every GM knows, no matter how many story hooks, maps or NPCs you painstakingly create during session prep, your best-laid plans are often foiled by your players’ whims, extreme skill check successes (or critical fails) or playful refusal to stay on task. In a game packed with infinite possibilities what are GMs to do when their players choose the unexpected? The Game Master’s Book of Random Encounters: Adventure Location Edition provides an unbeatable solution. Featuring more than 40 maps and detailed breakdowns of each presented space, you’ll be ready for whatever your 5e players throw at you (and have plenty of ways to ensure they’re caught off guard). Locations include taverns, temples, inns, lairs, laboratories and more, with story hooks for each! Now, no matter where your players end up, they’ll have someone or something to persuade or deceive, impress or destroy.
