The Red Dragon Inn: Guide to Inns and Taverns

Selected Option:

The Adventure is Over,

But the Party is Just Getting Started!

Heroes spend days on end slogging through dirt and muck while risking their lives battling nasty creatures. A stay at a clean and (relatively) safe inn or tavern can be a much-needed reprieve from their daily grind. Inns and taverns are common fixtures in roleplaying games, but often a stop at the inn is little more than a pause in the action, allowing players a few moments to erase damage from their character sheet.

The Red Dragon Inn: Guide to Inns and Taverns is a companion sourcebook for filling your games with detailed and imaginative places for the heroes to eat, drink, and be merry. But this book goes a step further (well, actually a number of steps)!

Inside, you'll find copious information on running, stocking, and even building inns and taverns. You'll also find new player and NPC classes that allow you to create the sorts of folks that you'll find in these places. And, of course, there will be gambling, with new mechanics that support everything from a simple game of cards to betting on gladiators.

The Red Dragon Inn: Guide to Inns and Taverns includes the following:

  • Tips and tricks for running believable inns and taverns, and populating them with intersting NPCs
  • Expanded combat rules to account for exactly how hard it is to throw that barrel across the room when the fight inevitably breaks out
  • The nuts and bolts for building structures from the ground up, including how much it costs, how long it takes, and how easy it'll be to tear it all down
  • New rules for dealing with drunken heroes and morning after, and new drinks to get them there
  • New classes, feats, traits, spells, equipment, and magic items

Is there an optimized version of this PDF? Each page takes a bit longer then it should to load. And I'm trying to load it on different devices.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
