In this small, booklet PDF I thought I’d try something a little different, so–instead of another tavern–this PDF describes a small, wishing well that was once the site of a horrible miscarriage of justice that locals remember with a yearly festival.
After putting my last tavern mini-booklet on the blog I got some great feedback and some brilliant ideas from people, one of my favourites was an idea from Robert Langford who suggested a tavern with a sinister motive. So without further ado, I present to you the Prince’s Arms.

You can get ideas in the most unlikely of places, in this case it was when listen to the Thought Eater podcast, I misheard the host Froth when he said “Pick your OSR clone of choice” and thought he said “Pick your OSR cologne of choice.” I realised my error pretty quickly but–the more I thought about it–the more the idea of random colognes appealed to me, so I decided to put together a series of linked random tables.Continue reading “Random Thing: Perfumes”
When you’re wandering around the streets of Great Lunden in the Midderlands there are a number of important buildings marked specifically on the map, but what about those buildings that aren’t marked?Continue reading “Random Thing: What does that Lunden building look like?”
