One of the dangers of having PCs go into a town for rest an relaxation is that the majority of the time you have no idea what should be there. Many PCs of course just want to go to the latest and greatest tavern for a barfight. But there are those out there that want to go shopping. Those are the ones that will ask the dreaded phrase "Whats on the shelves?"

Ever sailed the Seven Seas, fired a Cannon, know your slipknot from a Reef do ya? If ye're interested in the Nautical Life then this be the book for you, packed with fine locales and information this book in the City Guide series brings you a look at things Nautical.

From the Shipwrights to the seedy dives and dock side Taverns like the White Hart, useful in any port town or city. It contains colourful characters that could be placed in any adventure for your Heroes to meet.

Cities are always a good idea for a supplement. With a well designed city I can have dozens or more of adventures that never leave the area. Each shop and non player character can be a neat encounter waiting to happen and the flexibility of just lettin [...]

Good source of various places to acquaint yourself and PC's with, in a Harbor Town. Better still, it gives a GM a good idea of other places to create, too.<br><br><b>LIKED</b>: I liked the layout. When I printed it out, it look [...]

I hope any further books in this line don't follow this trend. The shops are laid out more like adventure sites than role playing resources like in previous books. While I understand this is handy for people intending to rob these places, it makes it [...]

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.
