Take on Establishments

Watermarked PDF

"Take On Establishments" is a collection of physical establishments and locations, brief descriptions (sights, sounds, smells), an NPC, and corresponding moves for Dungeon World. Drop one or more establishments into an existing city or village, they are independently designed.

"Take On Establishments" contains 11 establishments: Basilica of the Sun, The Butcher Bound Pig, Buzzard Hockenpock's Furs and Trappings, Chamber of the Master, the Gated Entrance, In the Lavendar, Necropolis of the Fallen, The Ravens Rookery, The Skittering Warrens, The Tethered Titan, and the Wharf.

My take on establishments is that they should be occupied by interesting people, be a possible launch point for adventures, and be just as much a part of play as a dungeon.

Great for fleshing out urban environments and giving locations more character. Could have been longer... [...]

It's ok but nothing to spectacular. If you want a few quick backdrops when you're caught short then you might want to reach for this. [...]

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.
