I concur. Such details would be awesome in all settings. Course, that's easy for me to say, I ain't writin' them Smile

For me they are just little things that perhaps non-combatant PC's (or combatant PC's) could learn. Obviously they may be of little use if used over-and-over again.

I am including a side-bar with some variant knowledge rolls to mix things up a bit and also GM guidance on defining the results to their own campaigns.

Quite a few games use this tactic but one of the first I remember using increasingly detailed knowledge matched to a number of successes was Shadowrun. I've always liked that mechanic and have included in my monster write-ups, interaction tables with NPC's and local knowledge checks on the city/village/hamlet blurbs for the campaign guide.

Well - just waiting for some approvals for map art and this thing will be released - at this point it's primary purpose will be that it can be used as an intro to Savage Worlds (like the one-page adventures) but also as an intro to the Realms of Eldrath.

Alot of the formatting will be re-used in future products so I won't have to recreate all the stuff from scratch.

Here's a scaled down image of one of the pregens - there will be 6 with each taking up a 1/3 page.

Hmm - I've got two crowds - one who likes the smaller pregens and those who like the bigger ones (example below) -

I think I'll include the smaller ones in the encounter pdf and have the others be a separate download.
