Welcome to the tenth title in Skirmisher Publishing’s popular and ongoing “100 Oddities” series! "100 Oddities for a Viking Encounter" is a thematic sourcebook that contains lists of 100 Items, 20 Places, and 30 People & Monsters that can be used separately or in conjunction with one another to add some evocative details to a Viking-themed encounter or to construct one from scratch. These elements routinely cross the line between actual mythological elements and meta-references to them, and storytellers can decide in any given case whether they are dealing with something legendary or merely reminiscent of it. 

Oddities are things that stand out from the ordinary, and prompt both game masters and players to wonder about them. Oddities intrigue and awaken curiosity and creativity in player and storyteller alike, adding interest to an encounter, or even making one out of nothing. Traditional combat encounters with stock monsters in standard subterranean rooms, followed by obligatory searches and looting, tend to run together after a while and become unmemorable to players. A crippled blacksmith found trapped in a mountainside cave, however, who is repairing an oversized iron plow that he says once belonged to a goddess and which must be fixed in time for an important annual ritual, is more likely to stick with them.

Other volumes in this bestselling series include 100 Oddities for a Creepy Old House100 Oddities for a Graveyard100 Oddities for a Thieves’ Guild100 Oddities for a Wasteland100 Oddities for a Wizard’s Library100 Oddities for an Enchanted Forest100 Oddities for a Found Car, and 100 Oddities for a Wizard’s Tower

Skirmisher Publishing present another solid piece of DM/GM resource!
"100 Oddities for a Viking Encounter" is their tenth in the series and delivers more good (and fun!) content than it's predecessors! In fact, it includes an extra 50 oddities!
And whose game doesn't need a good Viking encounter or three??

Format
Original electronic
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.
