"Scholarly Places" is the eighth out of eleven volumes of the well known "City Builder" series. Even for "Hack & Slash" characters it can be useful to have that one extra bit of information about their adversaries, and likely places to get this are the Academy, Fortune Teller, or Library. Now and then most adventures will end up in places like a Scriptorium, an Alchemist’s Workshop, a Scrollshop, or even a Wizard’s Tower. All of these places are detailed in this work. The description of the Alchemist's Workshop even includes a complete map of it. As usual with the "City Builder" series, for all places adventure hooks are included. This great source of inspiration for the GM is fully illustrated and comes in high and low resolution versions for screen and print. While only 14 of the 26 pages are text pages (and at many of the other pages there are compelling illustrations), it is worth wile and gets even cheaper when you just buy the whole "City Builder" compilation.
