D100 City Hooks, Fantasy RPG Encounter Ideas

Selected Option:

One area where I’ve noticed that gamemasters everywhere, regardless of their experience level, always need more tools is with encounter ideas. No matter how many sessions a GM may have under their belt, each and every gamemaster I’ve chatted with over the decades is always in search of more encounter ideas to cobble and bash into situations that best fit their own campaigns. 

Within the pages of this PDF are 100 encounter ideas, every single one of which was written for use in your favorite fantasy city. These concepts are intended as a source of inspiration and it is my wish that you will completely rework each one to suit the specifics of your world. 

BONUS: The 100 rumors included in this work are also available as cards! Your purchase of the digital edition of this book includes PNG files of the 100 rumor cards that you can use in your online sessions.



  • If this PDF achieves Silver status by January 6th, 2023, I will add four pages of rumors to the work. UNLOCKED!
  • If this PDF reaches Electrum status by January 6th, 2023, I'll add a second four pages of rumors, for a total of eight pages of rumors! UNLOCKED!
  • If Gold status is reached by January 6th, 2023, I'll add four more pages of rumors, for a total of twelve pages of rumors! UNLOCKED!
NOTE: The PDF started at 26 pages. Thanks to unlocked stretch goals, it is now 38 pages.

All stretch goals must be unlocked by January 6th, 2023. After that date, I'll start work on a print-on-demand edition. This is an A5-sized title, exactly the same physical size as A Selection of Slimes.

The rumors are great! If you could number them, it would be even better.

Thanks! I'll take a look at numbering them. I think I can adjust everything to work as a d100 table if that last stretch goal is unlocked.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
