Welcome to the Encounter Library

What We Do

Our goal is to make it as easy as possible to DM not by telling you how to DM but by showing you how to use the tools of a DM so that you can use them in whatever style, genre, or type of game that you want to play. We believe strongly in curating the best tools and making simple recommendations along with videos and articles that cover the tools and examples of when they're helpful.

That's not to say that we won't cover multiple tools of the same types. For example, we've covered DungeonDraft and Inkarnate because they both serve unique purposes and can be useful in different scenarios.

That said there are some tools that we focus on a little more heavily because we believe them to be the best tools available for the broadest array of use cases. Those tools are Foundry VTT as our VTT of choice and DungeonDraft as our battle map making tool of choice. We have a 'Basics' series for both Foundry and DungeonDraft that goes into every detail of how to use them in a quick and easy to follow way to get started as well as more advanced guides. For Foundry we also have a Player's Guide for getting your player's started without having to spend a whole session walking them through the tools.

You can find all this content below, as well as other one off guides that cover modules, experiments, projects etc. that you may find interesting. If you like the work we do, how we do it, and want to support that then we would welcome you on our Patreon. Thanks for your time.
