I love these neat series of materials. I've bought this bundle, the Myrr campaign guide & other content from the same creator and I love them. As a beginning Game Mistress about to start my own campaign soon, these resources provide quick references to NPCs, inns, shops and much more on the fly. Instead of having to browse a name generator, or having to go to google and look endlessly for a generator I can't remember the name of, I can just keep the PDFs open & all it takes is a nputing the page number and ta-da, I have a table, or I have an NPC, or a inn or shop ready to go.

These are also system friendly, meaning you don't have to convert much, if anything at all, for this to be compatible for any system. Only two complaints from me and one of them is probably something the author cannot help, but it is worth mentioning for international buyers: The conversion price might be a bit steep for money savers. Just be aware of the currency differences, and look out for sales, too!

And the only other one is that I love these so much I wish there was more and I would gladly buy more when they are released! On top of the above, having a Twitter account & personally interacting with the author, they are pleasant & professional and respond back to your inboxes and tweets. I love supporting independent content creators and I will be supporting this author in the future.

This bundle is a whopping amount of content for a pittance. This bundle comes with a neat set of NPCs, tables for events, engaging encounters, and other stuff that DMs have to figure out by themselves. The clean layouts make the information easily available, saving a tom of time and taking the stress away from game preparation.

Highly recommend!

TL;DR Review

Put simply, this bundle includes a wide range of NPCs, events tables, random encounters, and shop details that dungeon masters are constantly having to come up with on their own. The information is well organized and easy to find. I consider it a huge time saver for my campaigns and recommend its purchase.

Longer Review

This bundle is a collection of items that I've found make my game planning much easier. While there is far more information than what I've tapped into, I have found the following items to be extremely helpful to me when creating color for an adventure both in advance and on the fly:

  • Stores & Shops - There is a large number of stores and other shops that are named and described in detail. These stores can be dropped into any city your PCs find themselves in.

The author includes shops from the common supplier to armorers to music and art shops. Each store has a description along with information about the staff that work it. Things like languages spoken by the staff and the typical customers are included in the description. Also, a list of the main items sold in the shop (along with local prices) in included.

  • Taverns & Inns - This is another great reference with multiple pages of inns and taverns listed. These can be dropped into any part of your campaign. Descriptions for each establishment include the innkeep's name, staffing information, kinds of meals served, drinks available and cost of rooms. Additionally, a menu with local prices is included. I've found this is a great supplement to the information provided in the PHB and DMG.
  • Mundane Item Tables - There are multiple tables for random mundane items. This can provide some additional color to encounters or perhaps even serve as a toe into a side quest. For example, a wedge of cheese might add a day's ration or the rusty key could be a clue in a mystery.
  • Treasure Tables - In addition to mundane items, there are multiple treasure tables that can quickly allow you to come up with a reasonable amount of coin or treasure a person might have on them. Everything from a few coppers for a commoner to useful magic items on someone with more wealth and power.
  • NPC Stats - There are pages of information on random NPCs. Alignment, race, class and stats are included.
  • Much More - There are random event tables, chase tables, DM tips and a lot more. These can be used on the fly or as inspiration when developing a story for your players.

The information in this bundle is worth four times the asking price. I'm only upset I did not purchase it sooner.
