Fever-Dreaming Marlinko
Publisher: Hydra Cooperative
by Customer Name Withheld [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 03/30/2016 13:25:41

This isn't really a traditional city supplement. Rather, it's a set of adventure locations and a ready-made web of intrigues to plug into more or less any fantasy campaign (though it dovetails most clearly with Hydra's other campaign setting books, such as Slumbering Ursine Dunes).

It's possible to run it completely straight, but there's a lot of dry humour and the sensibility is strongly coloured by Vance's Dying Earth books. Essentially, if you like Vance's sardonic innkeepers and eloquent ne'erdowells, you'll probably like Marlinko.

Fever-Dreaming Marlinko
Publisher: Hydra Cooperative

Marlinko is a bit of a gonzo (but still very playable) urban setting that should appeal to players looking for a location with plenty of adventure hooks.

The town of Marlinko is divided into four quarters, the people of which have distinctive habits and biases. Centered around an ancient tomb that houses the Gods of the city, about whom few know anything definite, Marlinko is home to several distinctive characters who may drive the campaign into new and unexpected places.

On the edge of ambient Chaos, the town is prone to periods of riotous lunacy that may challenge the longevity of low-level players.

The softcover edition properly showcases the wonderful production of this work. It is worth the money to have the physical copy of this unique and spirited Labyrinth Lord supplement.
