[OSR] The Streets of the City

When the characters visit a city (or start in one) it is usually time to break out the price lists (or to come up with a two or four inns and guest houses). Adding a random encounter while they are minding their own business cannot be wrong, and right here I have a d10 tabel […]

6 happenings for an OSR tavern

There is no location that is used as often in OSR fantasy RPG as “the tavern”. In fact, I guess that taverns are even more prominent than dungeons. Sessions tend to start in it, leg work is done in them and more often than not the PC will spend an evening a night in one […]
