Throwing Some Pots…

If you’re looking at that post title and wondering what the heck I’m talking about, don’t worry – I’ll explain. While working on finishing up a crossover project where I used Insta-NPCS #10: Caveat Emptor to detail the Medieval Market from DramaScape (check out the series of posts I did a few weeks ago), I came…

A Walk-through Example of Caveat Emptor

A few weeks ago we went through, stall by stall, the Medieval Market map from Dramascape to illustrate how to use the upcoming Insta-NPCs #10: Caveat Emptor product. But I really didn’t do more than glance over the process, so I want to rectify that now. In this example, we’ll use a traditional fantasy world…

A Stroll Through the Medieval Market, Stall 8 (the final one!)

Finally in this market we have a cheese merchant. And yes, you’re probably wondering why there are two folks with cheese to sell and that was my thought as well. You’ll see how that played into this disgruntled individual… Whoever it is has to be annoyed that the person selling fresh produce also brought cheese! Who?…

A Stroll Through the Medieval Market, Stall 7

Up to now in the Medieval Market from DramaScape we’ve focused entirely on foodstuff, pottery, and fabrics, but nothing particularly stabby or violent as far as products. Today we’ll take care of that by dealing with a weapons merchant… tools, axes, some warhammers, a few knives. Doesn’t look like any swords or polearms of any…

A Stroll Through the Medieval Market, Stall 6

Directly across from the produce and cheese seller is the butcher. We already have quite a few interesting characters for the PCs to deal with, so let’s see what the dice have to say about that particular stall here in the Medieval Market map from DramaScape… Who? Undetermined Purpose? Buyer Product? Meats (chosen, not rolled) Success? Total…

A Stroll Through the Medieval Market, Stall 5

From the baker with murder in his heart, we travel back south and west to the booth selling cheese and produce. Let’s see what damage can be wrought here in the Medieval Market map from DramaScape… Who? Female Purpose? Seller Product? Cheese & Produce (chosen, not rolled) Success? Qualified failure Complete? Finished Transport? Foot State…

A Stroll Through the Medieval Market, Stall 4

Last week we talked about a few vendors and buyers in the market, ending with the fabric seller… Today we’ll work our way to the next stall in the Medieval Market map from DramaScape. Next on the agenda is the baker’s stall, which happens to be directly east of the fabric vendor and south of the…

A Stroll Through the Medieval Market, Stall 3

Yesterday it was the poor fish vendor dealing with smelly products… Today we’ll work our way to the next stall in the Medieval Market map from DramaScape. The third stall in the market (the one just south of the potter’s area and southwest of the fish stand) belongs to someone selling fabrics – tapestries. This…

A Stroll Through the Medieval Market, Stall 2

Yesterday we started our stroll through the Medieval Market map from DramaScape with a visit to the potter’s stand. Today, we head over to the fish stall across from it… Who: Female Purpose: Seller Product: Fish (not rolled, chosen) Success: Qualified Failure Transport: Animal Cart State of Mind: Satisfied State of Completion: Not quite done…

A Stroll Through the Medieval Market, Stall 1

As I work on the next installment of the Insta-NPCs line (officially now named Insta-NPCs #10: Caveat Emptor and should be released by the end of July if all goes well), I thought back on one of the more enjoyable blog runs I did back in October 2014 where I basically went through Heroic Maps’…
