One Dollar Dungeon: Fighter's Barroom Brawl Map Pack
Publisher: D20 Cartographer

Nicely done, professional looking map for a tavern. Includes options for grids / no grids, print and electronic versions. I don't do VTT games but I was still pleasantly surprised to see all the individual images included so you can use the basic layout and arrange all the stuff (kegs, tables, chairs, etc.) any way you like or use them in other maps of your own design. If I start making my own maps, I'd have to seriously consider picking up a few more of these One Dollar Dungeons, if only for all the well done images!

Dark Realms Epic: Taverns & Bar Brawls
Publisher: Guild of Blades
by Paul K. [Verified Purchaser]

I've got mixed feelings about this product. I bought it primarily based on the title "Taverns and Bar Brawls", to help me prepare for an upcoming game that I was planning to feature a bar brawl. So I was surprised to find that out of 22 pages, there was only 1 paragraph dedicated to bar brawls, and it basically says that players only do it because the DM lets them get away with it, so you should punish them so they won't do it again. Odd.

The rest of the publication does a better job, but at times reads more like a thesis paper than a sourcebook. Lots of information is given on the ins and outs of taverns including costs for various goods and services, entertainment and employment, plot twists, NPCs, and descriptions and floorplans for various types of taverns. I'll probably refer to this from time to time in the future, but I was disappointed that it didn't contain more info on bar brawls, considering that's half the title.

Barroom Brawls
Publisher: Raging Swan Press
by Paul K. [Verified Purchaser]

This was my first purchase from Raging Swan Press, and if this is indicative of their products, I'll buy more. It's billed as a Pathfinder sourcebook, but it's general enough to be easily converted to other systems (I bought it for a 5e D&D game). Unlike some products, the tables and outcomes listed here are just the right mix of fun and realism and it helps give you a quick reference when running a tavern fight, or a good source of inspiration. It's very attractive, well organized, and easy to read. Really I have no complaints, other than the all-black front and back covers - I skipped those when printing to save ink :-) Well worth the $1.

Unfortunately for me, I had prepped what I had hoped to be an epic tavern brawl to introduce a new NPC. Instead, the party Druid shifted into a bear and stopped everything down before it could get started. Damn players never do what they're supposed to ;-)
