Tavern Denizens-Book I: The Dives


Tavern Denizens answers the question, "Who is in the tavern?" for busy GM's. Each Tavern Denizens book provides a number of detailed NPCs with varied backgrounds that the GM can choose from randomly or at will to help provide the local tavern with color and depth. These books provide at least 25 NPCs with 1-2 paragraph descriptions and a list of possible adventure ideas for PCs looking for more than just a drink.

Book I: The Dives looks at the seedy, dirty, dingy taverns in the darkest, poorest area of town. While dimly lit confines certainly attract crooks and criminals avoiding the light, most of the patrons are simple laborers or peasants drinking away shattered dreams or soothing recent sorrows. These are people generally so poor that they aren’t worth robbing; even the thieves of the city leave them alone. Though not “evil” by most definitions, many of these lost souls have the desperation of the truly destitute and seek out any means of making a few coins even if they simply plan to drink it away.

Come drink with Tavern Denizens tonight!

Intended to be the first part of a series that, so far as I can tell, never got any further than this, this is essentially a collection of 25 NPCs. They have no stats, although some are rated as above average for combat ability and the like. For many [...]

Raise your hand if your players are more likely to remember the NPC with a an overzealous personality and a lisp more so than the NPC with the two epic feat progressions of two weapon fighting you designed him with. If you are wiggling your fin [...]

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.
