Fantasy Street Life: Profit Street

ZIP File

More of a general name than a singular, given location, Profit Street is any crowded urban street where all walks of life gather for daily business. From beggars and harlots pandering about to the wealthiest of aristocrats and officials, all varieties of folk can be found drifting about on this busy, city road. It is on such a street that one might be hassled by beggars and harlots hustling for petty coin, pelted with rocks by naughty children, engage in business with merchants local or foreign, and welcomed with warm wishes by drunkards, cult followers, and the most upstanding of citizens alike.

This edition of Fantasy Street Life focuses on the daily activities of a busy urban street where all forms of individuals must meet for common business and interaction. Though titled Profit Street there is no exact location description or map given. Rather it is a means of rolling up possible passing encounters that one might find on such a street by any name, particularly one that would exist within a standard fantasy town or city that is bustling and diverse. In addition to the encounter's type, Profit Street provides the grouping amount (such as three beggars for example), disposition, and who or whom that such an encounter might be possibly interacting with. A description regarding each encounter type is provided, as well as notes on handling such a group when interaction is likely to occur, particularly that of a friendly or offensive disposition.
It is the intended purpose of this product, as with all Fantasy Street Life editions, to provide a means of making quick, yet colorful, encounter rolls for urban street and road locations. As the characters are traveling down a street, the game master merely needs to make a roll or two in order to add a sudden encounter worthy of adding flavor to the street's crowd. In addition to keeping the players? interest some of these randomly rolled encounters can lead to a few chaotic situations of their own, thus adding that much more to the existing adventure.

Wait a minute. Did this product actually tell me what "d6+1" means? Yes, it did. And it also told me how to roll a d4, d6 -- "This simple [sic] means that one must roll a normal, six sided once" -- and a d3. Tricky, that l [...]

Again, a very generic supplement about any crowded mercantile street in any good-sized city. The supplement is given over to potential encounters on the street with a variety of types of individuals, rather than with specific shops and the like. In [...]

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.
