Are the extra 58 pages of 'So What's For Sale, Anyway' Pathfinder specific? This is in comparison to the System Neutral version.

Yes they are! They are based on the magic items for sale by settlement type/size found in the core rulebook. I expect they would also work with 3.5, but probably not (without some work) with other editions.

Hope that helps!

If you have never read any Raging Swan Press books, you are missing out on a great treat. I must say that your must needed books should be those from their Dressings line. Urban Dressings is a fabulous resource for any DM/GM and even fun for PC's. Chalk full of details and random charts. Besides being great for filling in things when you players get off course or if your a DM like me that run more Sand Box adventures. This resource is great for any town that is pre-built, and is even better for DM'S creating their own towns and want a level of detail to rival that of Pazio or WotC pre made towns and cities. The Great thing is this has everything from personalities of all the town NPC'S, the building decor, interior and exterior, items and so much more. The Urban Dressings is great for any rpg system and not just Pathfinder.


P.S. If you like what you see, join the Patreon campaign and get their products at a lower cost and support the writers to bring forth new material.

Really enjoyed this compilation. Only downside being I had to buy a pdf, when this product would be much better as a print book.

Thanks very much for the comment and the kind words. In a strange coincidence, I am waiting for the print PDFs of this book as I type this. As soon as I've approved them it will go live for print. If you fancy a print copy, please contact me via the Contact Publisher option here and I'll sort out a special deal so you don't lose out because of having to pay twice for the same material!

Sorry, but I look around and do not see how I can contact a publisher. All I found is enabling a publisher to be on my contact list, enabling them to see my name and email.

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.
