Once again, another great addition to this line!!

I read through the last review and it's one of the few times I can say "Yeah, what he said!" :) Skirmisher continues with #6 in this line with still more goodies for the intrepid city building GM. This installment covers Banks, Brokerages, General Stores, Marketplaces, Pawnshops, Trading Posts, and Warehouses as the description states. I must say that this is the one I have been waiting for...and I was not disappointed! The ideas generated by this PDF alone have greatly aided in my own pet project.

These places, like others in the series, are geared toward the fantasy milieu. However, as my son and I learned, slight tweaks in the content allows this material to be used in sci-fi, post-apocalyptic and other environments as well.

There are accompanying pictures to aid the GM's creative juices, but no maps or floorplans to restrict the flow. For some, this may seem a bad thing, but keep in mind that this product is designed that way. In fact, I have found that using this, along with some of the other products, such as tilesets out here, allow me to creative personalized places to visit, rather than the canned stuff that almost never fits my settings.

It is a 22 page PDF, but there is a LOT of great material in these pages. What I'm enjoying most about this series is the fact that Skirmisher refers to its other listings, but doesn't force the buyer to purchase them (but you REALLY should...they are that good!). This allows the buyer to take what they want, without having to pay for several other places you don't need.

A great expansion to an already top-notch series. HIGHLY recommended to any GM that wishes to truly create his own worlds for their players to explore!!
