Adventurers are always looting the bodies of their vanquished foes. Often the GM simply reads off the villain’s equipment list and the players move on. In this situation, beyond armour, weapons, magic items and some coin most foes never seem to carry anything of minor interest. This doesn’t help the GM diligently trying to breathe life and verisimilitude into his campaign.
Places of Power are short, richly detailed supplements that each present a flavoursome locale such as a remote temple, borderland fort or reclusive wizard’s demesne. Ready to be plugged into almost any home campaign, each installment can be used as a waystop on the road to adventure, the home of a powerful NPC or even as a mini-adventure site in its own right.
After a victorious battle in the dark subterranean world of the Ebon Realm, most adventurers inevitably rifle the pockets, packs or lair of their vanquished enemies. The treasures they might find in this stygian world are far-removed from those looted from their surface-dwelling enemies.
