The Red Dragon Inn Guide to Inns and Taverns is a Pathfinder-compatible sourcebook describing how to add inns and taverns, like the Red Dragon Inn, to your adventure!
What’s the big deal with inns and taverns anyway? Think of your favorite fantasy adventure. Did those heroes meet up at a tavern at some point? (Yep.) Did a “simple” night at the inn start a great adventure story? (Thought so.) Adventuring goes hand in hand with meeting, planning, scheming, and fighting in taverns!
Now let’s look at your game. Does your campaign have its “Prancing Pony” or “Inn of the Last Home”? Are your taverns a big deal? If they are, then this guide will give you new tools to make them even better. If they aren’t, and you want them to be, you’ve come to the right place… with this guide, you have all the tools you need!
While this guide has everything you need to add The Red Dragon Inn to your game, it’s about much more than that. It’s about the inn or tavern that you want to make! Whether you are a player with a retiring hero looking to start their own tavern, or a GM looking for the perfect setting for that great moment, you will find useful information on everything from construction to what to stock in the pantry. How much should you pay for a wooden chair, pewter plate, or barrel of ale?
The guide also introduces new rules for common folk – both player characters and NPCs – so you can tell more detailed stories about the folks who work at inns and taverns as well as those who visit. For storytellers there are additional chapters with maps, encounters, and details to help incorporate inns and taverns into your game.
We have made an effort to create a complete treatment on the topic. Most importantly, we hope we’ve made a tool that helps you tell better stories!
