Overheard Tavern Talk

Believe It Or Not, The Heroes Are Not The Center Of The Universe…
Despite the fact that the whole fantasy campaign world eventually becomes the playground of the player characters, these heroes are not the only living individuals in the realm. From the simple farmhand to the wealthiest, dandiest of nobles, other folks have other agendas in their lives. This simple fact, however, is often forgotten by a group of hungry adventurers seeking out clues regarding their current assignment. Such is the case in taverns and inns, when the big snoop of the party keeps an open, eager ear for any amount of conversation that might be taking place. Despite the well deserved egocentricity of the adventurers, most surrounding topics of discussion have nothing to do with the quest at hand. So what exactly are those other tavern patrons talking about? Farming, trading goods, or the cheap, scandalous ways of the dairymaid that lives down the road? With this product you have 100 different overheard statements to choose from. Simply roll the percentile dice to grab an instant bit of conversation.

Haven’t heard enough to get you wanting to buy this product yet? Check out the sample entries from this product….

03. Of course you can have another drink, in fact, you can drink all night on my coin… just as long as you agree to keep me company for the rest of the evening.

07. Hmmm…my ale tastes funny. Does your drink taste funny?

17. Look, I know you are all good and well interested in talking about your fancy little exploits but if I have to listen to one more sad tale about some adventure in the great northern mountains I’m going to puke stew and ale up all over the tavern hearth, do I make myself clear?

27. Yes, I’ll admit that something strange is going on in the sewers below… No, I’m not interested in finding out firsthand what it is.

37. I don’t care if she did kick me where it counts… three times… I love a woman with spunk! No, that’s a sprite, spunk is something all together… oh, stay on the subject, will you!?! If you want to go talk about fairies and pixies and crap then work your way over to the unpopular end of the tavern….

42. Now I could swear that I had three gold coins, four silver coins, and handful of coppers when I came in here… Wait a minute, does this look like a freshly cut hole in the bottom of my coin bag?

45. Wench!?! Weeennnncchhhh!?! Oh, for the love of the cursed forests, where is that scarlet whore anyways?!?

46. No, I don’t care to lick you right there… and no, you may not lick me there either… now do go away, you sick old troll!

63. Why do I drink upstream? Why do you drink upstream, why does anyone drink upstream? Do you think I’m ignorant or something!?!

72. Well then, if you can get your brother to thatch my roof for that price then I guess we’ve got a deal…

89. A giant snake? No, I’ve not come across anyone selling those in awhile… well, not live at least.

97. I’ve heard that a few of the shopkeepers in this village have become a bit too confident in regards to the local guard. So much confident, in fact, that they are often keeping their doors and windows unlocked at night.

This is a 7 page pdf that contains 100 different statements that the PCs may overhear in a tavern, a crowd, etc. They're all pretty general; no npc names or location names, so they fit well into many situations.<br><br> <b>LIKED</ [...]

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.
