Description:

This book is where d20 gets drunk - packed with dozens of drinks both mundane and fantastic, from beers, wines and spirits to exotic fantasy concoctions with strange side-effects. The book has extensive d20 drinking rules, plus guides to taverns and inns, and rules for running them.

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.

Check out the reviews:

"The Taverner's Trusty Tome. A whole PDF about drinking? Do we need this? No. Do I like it? HECK YES. A majority of the excellent d20 products out there are ones we don't 'need'. This one is a top contender, though... Art throughout is quite good, if not amazing. Layout is a charm and VERY easy to read, and the whole book is packed with information." - Review by "TomFerris" at EN World.

"All in all, this book is very much worth dropping a few bucks on. You might not use it immediately or often, but there will come a time when you find yorself glad to have it! Plus, it is fun to read!" - Review by "rdcms" at EN World.

Not the best, being rather over-stuffed with data that anyone who has been to a bar already knew. In all, much of the text seemed an effort to run up the word count. LIKED: Good art. DISLIKED: Too much pointless verbage. [...]

Every adventure I've been in eventually ends up at a tavern for some reason. Now there's a way to really make those encounters pop! This thing's got a section on assorted spirits, beers, wines, everything, not to mention equipment, NPCs, and even rules [...]

I was looking for a book that gave details about taverns inns in general, and rules that covered running a tavern or inn. LIKED: The details / flavor and the easy to use rules. It can add a lot of fun to a game to run a tavern. I also liked [...]

This is the defacto standard D20 rules for drinking and intoxication (and also added to the FFG Dawnforge universe through Path of Legend). Built on the original rules in Tournaments, Fairs, and Taverns, they are greatly expanded to add detail to the [...]

If the devil's in the details, then this product has Asmodeus inside it somewhere. A DM should have a copy of this by their side at all times to add some spice into the inevitable bar scenes that come up in gaming. Want to know why your fighter is seeing [...]

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.
