The Local Tavern - A context-based randomization tool

The Local Tavern - A context-based randomization tool

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $0.50

The Local Tavern starts as a tool to build a tavern around its denizens. Create ten random people with the shared context of "Local Tavern" and use what you learn about them to make a dynamic tavern that you don't have to improvise on game day. It then morphs into a workbench that you can use to create any collection of people with a shared context.

Two Files:

The Local Tavern contains a tool for making taverns, instructions for modfying that tool to create other contexts, a blank worksheet to design your own tools in the same vein, and a large-scale example: The Crumbling Empire.

Worksheet and Sample Tavern contains a record sheet you can print off to drill down deeper into the NPCS, which is useful for places the PCs will visit often, and a sample tavern written using the worksheet: Pasco's Pint.

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.
