Praise For GM’s Miscellany: Urban Dressing

“GM’s Miscellany: Urban Dressing lived up to everything I had hope for! Awesome product! I love the 1st edition feel. Great info! Looking forward to more Raging Swan purchases in the near future. A must buy for any DM/GM that runs Urban adventures! Makes running a trip to the city a breeze!”

–Karl K (five stars)

“This book is already a mainstay at my gaming table; I use it to prep for game sessions in addition to using it in play to quickly add random tidbits about the areas being visited; my players have commented about how unsettled they have become now that I am adding more details to random areas being described, not just detailing the important places and skimming over the rest. I’ll take that as a compliment, both for myself and the new tool in my GMing toolkit.”

–Ken Pawlik (five stars)

“For a real urban adventure with an old school feel you cant go wrong with this book. Highly recommended.”

–Pierre Hall (five stars)

“This book will supply everything you could want to discover interesting features for common urban fixture such as shops, stalls, thieves and so on as it states giving you the readily available tools to quickly and easily bring these features to life.”

–John2412 (five stars)

“The Urban Dressings is great for any rpg system and not just Pathfinder.”

–John S (five stars)

If you like designing urban settings or just wish to make existing ones spring into vibrant life, check this out.”

–Megan Robertson (five stars)

“I was blown away by the amount of quality content it contained…”

–Samuel P (five stars)

“The truth is, this book is the best compilation of the old urban dressing-series one could hope for – while the newer installments have brimmed with creativity and found their place, this book takes the older entries and whips them into a shape that is infinitely more useful than its component parts, both by refinement and organization and proximity. The new content is neat as well.”

System Neutral Edition

GM_UD_SNE_220This edition of GM’s Miscellany: Urban Dressing presents all the great flavour and descriptions found in the Pathfinder edition of the book, but removes all the Pathfinder terminology. So, for example there is no mention of DCs, Knowledge checks, Perception checks and so on in this book!

We removed these details so the GM can easily, simply and quickly use the book in conjunction with virtually any fantasy roleplaying game.

    • Thanks so much for the kind words. I much appreciate them and I’m delighted you’ve found GM’s Miscellany: Urban Dressing so useful!

  2. Do you plan to release a system-neutral version of this? I would like to buy it, but I’d prefer to wait for a non-PF edition, if one is on its way…

    • I don’t know yet. As you know, I’ve released a system neutral Dungeon Dressing and I’ll shortly be releasing a Wilderness Dressing edition. If they do well, I’ll definitely release a system neutral version of this book.
