"Fairs? Markets? Shopping Trips? Ugh!" Says GM Boring.

"Get a better GM," says Richard.

Fantasy adventurers, wandering outlaws, and other ne'er-do-wells aren't just stomping through badlands and prowling around dungeons all the time. Those trips to town for fairs, markets, and festivals have a lot to offer. Head to town with a group of friends, talk to the locals, get into trouble, and try to get away with it. From here, you can easily launch into all sorts of games, including Jared Sinclair's original So You Want to Be an Adventurer?

This game was inspired by Jared's What's So Cool About Outer Space? and Litza's What's So Cool About Mythical Girls Dating Each Other? Buy those games and give them real money!

Pay-what-you-want TTRPG resource that could either stand alone as a one-shot or work into an existing campaign during a shopping spree. Features lots of fun ideas, an intriguing map for the fair, and a straightforward 2d6 system with sensible modifiers. Bonus points for gender-neutral language throughout and a keen awareness of safety tools and boundary-setting. 5/5 stars - outstanding.

Thank you!!
