Shiny Bits

It is unavoidable: every DM was, or will be, in a situation when Players decide to do something completely unexpected and, leaving us with the sensation of being caught off-guard. Even the best prepared DM isn’t immune to this but is just the unpredictability that makes Role Play Games so fun. However, sometimes this situation put our games at a halt, breaking pace and shattering the immersion we tried so hard to create for our players.

Other times, we just need a generic purpose location to fill a blank we left on our game preparation, like a tavern where the group can enjoy a drink and gather information, or a general store where our heroes can buy some supplies and sell all the useless loot they brought from the last adventure they lived.

To help you with that, Red Crow Pub brings into existence Shiny Bits, a line of small publications dedicated to describing in detail a single place with limited scope, so you can pick it and drop it in your game without too much effort. Here you will find three A4 page sized, printable maps, which can be used for combat, the description of relevant NPCs, keyed areas, treasures and, sometimes, more.

While you will find some adventure seeds and ideas, you will not find any adventure: our objective is to give you, the DM, something to build upon, making this little place your own – or ignore completely what we have presented to you and just pick the maps to be a canvas to a quick combat – the choice is yours.

We hope you enjoy this and have fun.

DMG sent me an email asking for a review, however for the sake of transparency I volunteered to proof read and edit this document for Red Crow publishing. I did one relatively brief read through and sent the edit back to Red Crow. I have not since read [...]

A very solid "story starer" for a DM looking for help filling their campaign with interesting places. Presents a single, detailed location and its owner/operator full detailed and stated out. Provides just enough detail to be interesting, and [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
