The City Handbook


The City Handbook - Over 48 Quadrillion Settlement Combinations

Create unique settlements to use in your campaign in seconds, with only a few dice rolls

"Very easy to use. The process of creating new cities from scratch always felt intimidating to me and this book solved that for me. Thanks"

"Loved your previous book (The NPC Handbook), and this one is even better. Impressive how much flavor some tables of ideas can add to my towns and villages. Will definitely put it to good use."

"There's a lot of beautiful art in this book. Also it's not just for creating new cities. It's a great book for spicing up existing ones. Highly recommended."

This book is a tool that allows dungeon masters to create unique settlements very quickly and easily, and enhance existing ones with cool elements.

Unlike similar books that are complicated, this book focuses only on details that matter, allowing you to create flavorful hamlets, villages, towns, and cities without effort.

I was also looking for a POD option. Either both handbooks separately or the city/npc as a combo print book.

Is there an option to get both the City and NPC Handbook into one hardcover?

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.
