Quick Note - Brian Fitzpatrick's Urban Dressings is Live

+Brian Fitzpatrick just released his Game Master resource kit "Urban Dressing: Sages" over on the Onebookshelf sites for $1.99. It is a table generator  for populating and making a sages' market or shop in any urban setting different and unique while giving the Game Master's brain a bit of a break in plan all the lurid details. There is also a few sample sages at the end of the title if the GM has even less time!

From Drivethru:

A Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Compatible GM's Resource by Brian Fitzpatrick
Tired of your towns and cities being boring, bland places in which your PCs show little or no interest? Want to bring your towns and cities alive with cool, interesting minor features of note? Then Urban Dressing is for you!
Each installment in the line focuses on a different common urban fixture such as shops, stalls, thieves and so on and gives the harried GM the tools to bring such features to life with interesting and noteworthy features.
This installment of Urban Dressing presents loads of great details about sages to add into your campaign. Designed to be used both during preparation or actual play, Urban Dressing: Sages is an invaluable addition to any GM's armoury!
Urban Dressing: Sages presents:
  • One table (50 entries) presenting external details of a sage’s place of work.
  • One table (50 entries) presenting internal details of a sage’s place of work.
  • One table (20 entries) presenting whispers and rumours about a sage.
  • One table (20 entries) presenting hooks, complications and opportunities.
  • Ten sample sages.
This product is a Dual Format PDF. The downloadable ZIP file contains two versions, one optimized for printing and use on a normal computer and one optimized for use on a mobile device such as an iPad.

      While primarily for Pathfinder, the quick skim I did of its preview show me that it can be pretty easily adapted to most if not all the d20 based systems (including our lovely retroclones!).

      The Robathen's Coin Parts 1 -3

      A long time ago I released a short story on drivethrufiction called "The Rabathen's Coin - An Arame Tale" that was meant to be the start of a series staring a mysterious thief named Arame.  Well, five years later and I have sold maybe six copies.  With that in mind I figured I might as well break it up into two or three parts and post in on the blog.

      Thoughts are welcome as I am always interested in what others think of my original works.



      I.
      The stench of rotten fish, sweat, mildewed wood and the ocean rose up from the black waters of the harbor in a visible mist that hung over the free trade city of Wickend adding to the already strong reek of human filth and cheap ale. The setting sun, unable to pierce the vile mist, washed over the crumbling buildings that lined the twisting streets of the Old District. From open doors and windows came the sounds of life, true life, of men laughing and boasting, of women flirting and dealing in their trades. To an outsider, the Old Distr…

      I am starting to see a theme evolving here ... and it wasn't even planned.  Enjoy, and feedback is always welcomed!


      Magic Item - Arcane Gauntlet

      Arcane Gauntlets are small devices of leather and copper fitted to the wearer's primary hand and feature a small, thin gem imbued with pure arcane energies affixed to the palm. As a standard action the wearer of an Arcane Gauntlet may release its energies up to four times in a single encounter safely, and up to eight times if the wearer is willing to endure the burning residual heat from sustained use of the device.  If an Arcane Gauntlet is used to its maximum effect (eight times) it is inoperable until such a time as its wearer takes a long rest.
