Alternate Objectives (PF2)

Watermarked PDF

Sometimes just beating the bad guys is not enough.

Alternate objectives are goals beyond just killing everyone that you can include in your combats. These encounters still feature enemies to fight, but they also include tasks for the heroes to complete. These could be anything from rescuing hostages, to destroying an evil relic, to holding a scrap of land long enough for reinforcements to arrive.

The book Alternate Objectives includes advice for creating your own encounters with seven categories of goals, plus general advice like using skill checks and making combat optional.

It also includes six sample encounters that you can drop into your campaign, each with multiple story hooks.

  • Necklace Heist: The characters steal a necklace from a corrupt noble at a crowded tavern.
  • Caves of Ice: The heroes escape a crumbling ice cave while battling elementals.
  • The Fire Fight: The heroes try to extinguish the blaze at an abandoned warehouse while battling fire-breath bugs.
  • The Assassination: The characters protect a prince from would-be assassins.
  • Escape the City of Brass: The heroes activate a portal to escape the City of Brass as unending waves of efreet and their minions attack.
  • Fallen Angel: The characters try to bring a fallen planetar back to the light while battling his new diabolical allies.

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.
