Empire Builder - Settlement Overview

Having the settlements name and street details is all well and good, but what about the town itself? What sort of defenses does it have? What is the law like? How many people live there? All these questions and more can make coming up with a settlement a daunting task.

The Settlement Overview is designed not to make a full layout for you, but to give you a framework to start with and give you room to grow and expand your cities and towns as you play in them. After all, what’s the point of making a detailed plan of your city if the party is only going there once?

This covers various aspects of the overview for your settlement

  • Size: How big is the city?
  • Attitude/Atmosphere: How would you describe the town in one word?
  • Architecture: What style are the buildings here?
  • Defenses: What physical defenses does the location have?
  • Districts and Regions: How is the settlement divided up?
  • Law: What is the law like here? Do they favor one group over another?
  • Layout: Is the city in a grid like formation or seemingly random?
  • Location: Where is this city located?
  • Population: What is the main race or species of this place?
  • Purpose: Why was the city built?
  • Resources: What is the primary import and export of this location?
  • Ruler: Who, or what rules this place?
  • Threat: What is the #1 problem this city has to deal with?

Also, features 3 appendixes

  • Appendix 1 – Buildings: A simple d100 list of some buildings you may find in a settlement
  • Appendix 2 – Groups : Used in conjunction with the law aspect to determine who or what the laws applies to.
  • Appendix 3 – Example Settlement Overview Creation: Takes you through an example creation of a settlement using this system.

Format
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.
