Come check out this week’s batch of Kickstarter and crowdfunding highlights!
Tabletop roleplaying adventures take many forms, and involve characters of various races, classes, and statuses. You could barge into a hundred campaigns, and never find one that is exactly the same. Yet for their plethora of differences, most, if not all, share one common denominator. One nucleus. One cog around which their many-spoked wheels turn. Taverns.
Now, with the flip of a page, you can place your players in one of many fully-detailed, region-specific taverns, complete with detailed floor plans, stunning artwork, and dozens of original non-player-characters, including iconic bards and two new monsters. At the locations presented within this compendium, we can guarantee that your experience will be nothing short of glorious.
Pledges start at $35 for a PDF.
