A GM’s Resource supplement by Creighton Broadhurst

Even the smallest town has more locations than all but the most diligent and time-rich GM could ever hope to detail and design. To make matters even worse, when an adventuring party gets to a town or city, the characters often have the irritating habit of going off exploring. What’s a GM to do? Designed specifically for you, the busy GM, the mini-eventures herein help you bring depth and flavour to your characters’ next urban adventure. This compilation is designed for use with City Backdrop: Languard, but can be easily used in virtually any town or city.

This compilation presents the first 14 mini-eventures:

  • A Day Out at High Market

  • A Day Out at Low Market

  • Dining at the Emerald Medusa

  • Drinking at the Bloody Eagle

  • Drinking at the Drunken Sailor

  • Drinking at the Last Chance

  • Selling Loot at Arlo’s Stones

  • Shopping at Kardagg’s Emporium

  • Visiting the Dreaming Spires

  • Visiting the Durankis

  • Visiting the Fane of the Waves Eternal

  • Visiting the Father’s Hall

  • Visiting the Great Forge

  • Visiting the Watcher’s Spire

What’s a Mini-Eventure?

A mini-eventure is like a normal eventure but smaller! An eventure is akin to a normal adventure, but does not (normally) feature violence or physical challenges. Instead, an eventure focuses on the use of social skills and role-play to resolve the challenges, or events, therein. Most eventures take places in a settlement or on the road. Few occur in traditional adventure locales such as dungeons, ruined castles and so on. 

Eventures are an excellent change of pace and can be used as filler between adventures or as situations in which characters who have invested in social skills can shine. They are also perfect for players who enjoy role-playing.

The mini-eventures in this book are all set in Languard, capital of Ashlar but, with minimal work, they could be set in virtually any town or city.

Dual Format PDF

This product is a Dual Format PDF. The downloadable ZIP file contains two versions, one optimised for printing and use on a normal computer and one optimised for use on a mobile device such as an iPad.

A Note About Print Options

This is a black and white book, although the available print options only list colour editions. This is because the paper available for colour printing is thicker and of a higher quality than that used for black and white books. Better paper is more durable and takes scribbles and highlighting better than thin paper. Thus, to make the book more durable and useful, we went with the better paper.

Scanned image
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.
