Jalizar, the City of the Thieves is an interesting micro-setting where heroes can live exciting and dangerous adventures. Fast, fun and furious… Oh yes!
Factions, inhabitants, city neighbourhoods and a lot of adventure seeds ready to explore and/or expand. This book gives you setting rules in order to run an urban style campaign, and specific mechanics to manage some kind of situations, as roof chases for instance…
The info is very consistent and you can add, remove or change info easily in order to set the mood or style you need. As GM, I am very satisfied with this book because I can run a game or a campaign without spending a lot of time preparing it or I can add more and more details if I want to spend some time on it.
My players are mercenary adventurers spending some time in Jalizar, and the merchant houses, guilds and another factions give me a lot of play. And Jalizar is… Misterious, dangerous and so cruel…
I love the ambushes in foggy alleys but maybe my players don’t feel the same LOL
