Week 2: Activity #3 – Create six more three-line encounters for ‘Spring 2022 Write your First D&D Encounter Workshop’ ‘

Activity #3 for Week 2 of the ‘Spring 2022 Write Your First D&D Encounter Workshop’ is to create six more three-line encounters.

It’s okay to use any of the three pillars (social, combat, exploration), but keep the encounters short – it’s just to practice with coming up with new ideas.

Not every encounter idea you come up with will be the most amazing idea ever, and that’s OK; that’s the point! Only by practicing does this process become easier.

My six line three-line encounters

Exploring my encounters through the lens of each pillar – how might the same encounter be experienced as combat, socially or exploratory?

(1) COMBAT
Location: Mysterious underground cavern
Goal: To defeat others from rival clan(s) who are also trapped and trying to escape the cavern.
Obstacle: Battling unknown number and skill levels of rival clan members.

(2) COMBAT
Location:
Mysterious underground cavern
Goal: To defeat an ailing race of indigenous creatures seeking to escape the cavern and take over surrounding area, and then the world.
Obstacle: Battling the creatures in an unfamiliar and unforgiving environment.

(3) SOCIAL
Location: Mysterious underground cavern
Goal: To form a truce with others from rival clan(s) who are also trying to escape the cavern.
Obstacle: Reaching a delicate balance between friend and foe in order to survive – frenemies!

(4) SOCIAL
Location: Mysterious underground cavern
Goal: To befriend and tend to an ailing race of indigenous creatures that that may know how to escape the cavern
Obstacle: Communicating effectively with the creatures who have never seen your character race before, or anyone else for that matter.

(5) EXPLORATION
Location: Mysterious underground cavern
Goal: With great stealth, escape the cavern using one of the many potential routes while avoiding combat and contact with rival clan(s) or creatures.
Obstacle: Being discovered by rival clan(s) and indigenous creatures.

(6) EXPLORATION
Location: Mysterious underground cavern.
Goal: Escape the cavern using the safest route and with the most detailed mapping and details of the underground area so you can return with reinforcements.
Obstacle: Getting lost and limited time to create detailed maps and potential to be discovered by dangerous creatures and rival clan(s) also trapped underground.
