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 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’…

Five NPCs Visiting the Market…

While doing some preparation for the Lost Age Campaign I just started, it became painfully aware that I needed more texture in the NPCs who were coming to Nifton’s Inlet – this little fishing village with a reputation for great fish all year round. It seemed logical that there would be folks coming to take advantage…

The Lost Age – d12 Folks in the Zumka

As I work more and more on the Zumka… this marketplace in the middle of the Lost Age with a porous form of reality, I wondered at some of the people the PCs might find there when they arrive and walk its winding ways. If you roll a d12, here are some of the people…
