Once again, your PCs have emerged from the dungeon ready to celebrate their victory or raise tankards to their fallen comrades. Returning to town they ask “So what’s the tavern like, anyway?” At that point, likely or not the GM glosses over the tavern or wildly improvises!

Unsurprisingly, PCs spend a lot of their time between adventures relaxing in taverns and inns, but often such locales end up being drab, one-dimensional affairs with no real characteristics or flavour of their own. So What’s The Tavern Like, Anyway? banishes this problem by presenting dozens of tables covering the tavern’s offering, customers and staff along with extensive notes on games of chance, drinking songs and more!
“This instalment of the "So what's..."-series is just plain awesome and up to the highest standard of any instalment, providing detail upon stellar detail at your fingertips, offering cool tavern-games etc. - and honestly, I would have loved more tavern songs and games! Especially when combined with RSP's excellent Barroom Brawls, this pdf makes for a truly stellar offering that should not be missing from any DM's library - hell, if you're running an urban campaign, the staff and customers alone might make for awesome pdf, but combines with the cool lists and the awesome games, we're in for a vast amount of fun. Now I want a sequel to this and a high-level barroom brawl-pdf! My final verdict? 5 Stars seal of approval!”

“Let us take for example, The Abandoned Dragon. With a bad reputation for pickpockets, and a huge painting on the wall of the current landlord battling a dragon single-handed (This never happened – the landlord has always worked in pubs but dreams of adventure), this alehouse's specialty is fish cooked in ale with mashed swede and potato. A young lad with a shaved head and multiple piercings leans against the wall behind the bar. Answering to Wennig, he is the alehouse's excellent cook, fish and seafood being his specialty. Grodor, a short bearded bartender pours beers agonizingly slow behind the bar, much to the frustration of his thirsty customers. So, that took longer to type then it did to put together...minute and a half...grand total. Starting to get the idea why the books of this series are so valuable? Mass charts, organized by the old school random dice roll, some by the d20, others by percentile...or simply waggle your finger, close your eyes and stab. Point is, it makes designing on the fly so much easier…Raging Swan continues to impress me with their releases, an easy 5 stars and well worth the price of admission.”
