Eat, drink and be merry... an invaluable sourcebook for any campaign which features taverns, inns or drinks!
Rowdy, rustic taverns, hot meals, and strong drink* - while popular elements in role playing fantasy, the lack of variety and detail often make this part of the urban crawl somewhat repetitive and dull. Sick of hearing of your players say "I'll order an ale" for the ten thousandth time? Then The Taverner's Tome is your solution to the boring side of role playing intoxication.
Packed with dozens of drinks both mundane and fantastic The Taverner's Tome provides much more than the simple offerings of brew, wine, and spirits. From table wines to the more exotic fruit beers and flavored rum this book is a great resource for spicing up that otherwise plain bar menu. Mixed drinks in the height of fantasy flair are also covered as well as the curious fantastical beverages that offer special bonuses or dreadful side effects to those who consume these special concoctions. In addition drinking rules are provided along with the different types of drunken personalities that your characters might run into (or become).
Have a character who's more at home behind the bar than within the stone walls of a mighty fortress? If so then the player of that character will find a resource of information regarding the success, management, and expenses of running or owning a tavern or inn. Perhaps there's an individual in your party with a few ranks in brewing or wine making? The Taverner's Tome also provides information on establishing and maintaining a winery or brewery.
All this and much, much more are available for your hearthside reading pleasure!
This supplement builds on the popular Drinking Rules first introduced in the bestselling Tournaments, Fairs & Taverns.
