City Maps & Settings

Post by DivineWannabe » Mon Mar 02, 2020 9:35 pm

Does anyone have a recommendation for a product that gives me maps of a city as well as descriptions of the buildings and such?
Does the Lankhmar product by Goodman Games provide that?

Lankhmar has a fantastic map by Mr. Doug Kovacs.

Volume 1 of Metal Gods of Ur-Hadad (available for free on drivethrurpg) has a very detailed random neighborhood generator including geography, buildings, NPCs, gangs, and factions. I have always wanted to try it out or see a good game report of how it went because it seems like a ton of fun.

Yeah, the Lankhmar map is fantastic. But details on specific buildings are left to the Judge. In the "Lankhmar: City Of the Black Toga" supplement there are descriptions of notable locations in each of the city's quarters, and there are a variety of tables for generating "unique neighbourhoods" (including buildings). There is no list of buildings relating to the map, though.
Shaky, Gambler, N, AC 10, hp 1, S12 A9 S5-2 P9 I9 L9, r+0, f-2, w+0, club +0 (1d4)

The Illuminating Anhk, Elven Artisan, L, AC 10, hp 3, S11 A9 S9 P13+1 I10 L15+1, r+0, f+0, w+1, fumbles +1, staff +0 (1d4)
