No matter what system you use for your games, being a game master is a perilous pastime. As soon as the players arrive with their PCs at the ready, your well-formulated plans can go off-the-rails at a moment's notice. If you have somewhere to put the PCs for a bit while you ponder your options, it can smooth things out considerably.

If you're in need of such a location on short notice, One Spot is for you! Each product in the line focuses on a different location you can easily drop into any fantasy town or city. Instantly you have a place with NPCs, descriptive text, plot hooks, and more to give you the tools you need to quickly populate a place your PCs can interact with.

One Spot #1 presents a tavern called The Painted Man, complete with a barkeep (the artistically decorated Painted Man), tavern map, images, and more. One Spot #1: The Painted Man is another great tool to include in your bag of GM tricks!

One Spot #1: The Painted Man offers:

  • An introduction, location description, tavern map, and image of the tavern sign.
  • A bit of background on the Painted Man himself, his mannerisms, and a picture.
  • Descriptions for the other NPCs involved in operating the tavern, from the bubbly barmaid to the secretive owner.
  • A suggestion of what items might currently be on the menu and on tap.
  • A list (10 items) of potential facts and rumors to kick things off.
  • A list of hooks (4 tables of hints) for how one or more of the PCs may have interacted with the tavern before.

This is the second in a new series of short (2 page), system-neutral supplements from Moebius Adventures designed to provide easy locations to drop into your fantasy campaign, complete with hooks, NPCs, and a few surprises.  

Each Moebius Adventures One Spot product is designed to be easily inserted into your GM folder with two pages containing:

  • Player-ready information, including: a location description providing details on what and who to expect, along with an image or two to help set the scene.
  • GM-ready information, including: NPC details, location map, encounter/hook ideas, and a random table to help determine any prior relationship with the place a PC may have.

Each location can then be used independently or together to help you fill a temporary gap or add details to your worlds without a ton of work.

Pick a spot, drop it in, and roll!

No plan ever survives contact with the enemy, nor do a GM's careful plots survive in original form for long once the player-characters arrive. So here's a neat thing to have tucked away in your files to provide some entertainment whilst you try to get [...]

Format

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.
