Need science fiction adventure ideas including ways to get the adventure started, several possible encounters along the way, and a couple of follow-up possibilities? Use our SideQuest Decks: Science Fiction!
Each card helps you build a dynamic adventure!
Draw a card for an adventure outline. The outline includes backstory, ways to get the PCs involved, encounter possibilities, and follow-up ideas. The other side of the card is the most important map for that adventure. Need more maps? Borrow one from another card.
Each adventure in this deck has a Science Fiction theme/setting. However each card also has a note on how to turn it into a fantasy adventure. Encounter Decks are perfect for stocking a hex crawl or developing a side trek on the fly, or even chain several together for an entire campaign!
Note: The PDF is set up to be printed duplex (two-sided), 4 cards per page. So the upper right card on the front side of each page matches up to the upper left card on the back side. There are also white marks near the corners of each card which are guides to use when cutting the cards. This extra area (1/8") on the edge of each card is called a "bleed" which is intended to be cut away. It allows a card to still look good even if the cut isn't perfect or if the front and back prints aren't perfectly aligned.
