This product consists of 65 pages; the cover is truly ghastly amateur art that Judges’ Guild would have considered unworthy, but that’s a moot point in a pdf. Four pages are spent with the usual bumpf, and then there are 100 ‘Bits of the Boulevard’ each a visual image of a street scene written in a rather florid style; if I used this product, I would have to paraphrase the description, as it does not flow naturally. Then you get 80 ‘shards of the street’, which are scenes tied to specific areas of the city. Then are 22 ‘Walls and Gates’, which have to do with observations made in those areas. The writing is not bad, but rather far too florid, the sort of over-emphasized melodrama one associates with high school students. Five pages of very basic and simplistic discussion on why cities exist, followed by an index, and then the first hundred descriptions repeated a second time in an ‘index card’ format.
This product might be useful to a beginning GM with limited or no experience, or a GM wanting to add color to a one-off or a short campaign without any appreciable setting, but otherwise it is of limited appeal, and very over-priced.
