The Red Dragon Inn: Guide to Inns and Taverns will be a 48-page Pathfinder compatible sourcebook - the ultimate toolbox on inns and taverns. It will include new rules for resolving gambling and drinking and be filled to the brim with NPCs, maps, and more.
In fantasy roleplaying games, inns and taverns are often overlooked, but this is hardly the case in fantasy literature! In The Fellowship of the Ring, The Prancing Pony is an important location. It’s where we learn that Gandalf is missing and where the hobbits first met Strider, but there is even more to it! It helped to define the tone of Middle-Earth under the undefined threat of Sauron: welcoming on the surface, but with shadowy corners and whispered conversations hidden beneath.
The Guide will have all the details you need to add The Red Dragon Inn to your game:
- All the drinks from the card game and even some new ones! Over 20 drinks with their effects, serving sizes, prices and other details are included.
- The Traditions common to The Red Dragon Inn – like Drinking Contests and Gambler’s Grog – and the answer to the question: “Who, in their right mind, orders Dirty Dishwater?”
- The story of founding of The Red Dragon Inn and Warthorn Redbeard, the dwarf who started it all!
But the Guide isn’t just about The Red Dragon Inn. It’s about the inn or tavern that you want in your game! Whether you are a player with a retiring hero looking to start their own tavern, or a GM looking for the perfect setting for that great moment, you will find sections on everything from how to build to what to stock in the pantry. How much should you pay for a wooden chair, pewter plate, or barrel of ale? We have that covered. We’ll go in depth on the NPCs who work in these places as well as those who visit. For Game Masters there will be plenty of advice on ways to incorporate inns and taverns into your game with sections on plot hooks, and ways to use inns and taverns to help create the right feel for your campaign or setting.
