A train of camels, carrying a thousand vials of puum dust - the wealth of nations - strides slowly across the desert, its lookouts alert for the shadow of a dragon, passing high overhead. On a king's road crossing the old growth forests of the North, just ten miles from the sanctuary city of Hillsboro Downs, bandits waylay a twenty-horse team carrying casks of fine Halfling cheese and Dwarven brandy. Fleeing a loveless marriage, a young Half Elven princess signs on to work a traveling circus as an acrobat, hiding her true identity behind a velvet mask. Caravans are more than just a part of the mundane economy of the world. They are a springboard to future adventures. The following new rules not only include the original rules but build upon the innovative caravan simulation rules. These new rules offer new possibilities to players and game masters alike engaged in nomadic adventures. This sourcebook contains:

  • 20 Wagon types including Bordello Wagon, Penitentiary Wagon, Skeletal Horse Team and Steam Engine 
  • Over 20 caravan equipment including Cargo Balloon, Letter of Passage, Proud Colors and Sin Caravan 
  • 35 caravan feats including Banker's Caravan, Fighting Beasts, Phantom Drivers and Reputable Mark 
  • Real-World Logistics of Caravans 
  • Nearly 10 Caravan plot hooks 
  • Over 20 Threats To The Caravan from Avalanche to Drow Marauders to Necromantic Horde.
  • Plus 5 Sample caravans to use in your games.

When I first read the Player's guide for the Jade regent adventure path I immediately fell in love with the caravan rules provided there. The idea of developing and running your own caravan was original and a welcome diversion from the usual dungeon cr [...]

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.
