What if carousing in fantasy taverns were its own adventure?

Barkeep on the Borderlands is a barhopping, fantasy adventure amidst Mardi Gras-like festivities, including 20 detailed pubs and dynamic drinking rules.

Barkeep on the Borderlands flips the script on the tired trope of starting in a tavern. In this adventure, players explore the many taverns of the Keep in search of a missing antidote, getting into shenanigans along the way. The pubcrawl is like a dungeoncrawl but with bars and streets instead of rooms and corridors.
What you’ll find in the adventure… 
  • 20 detailed taverns, with unique premises like a speakeasy run by cultists, an undead dance club, a gambling den for kobold gangsters or a cozy bar in a witch’s cottage

  • 36 character backgrounds for potential pubcrawlers

  • 5 intertwined factions vying for control of the Keep, including a wizard academy, a cult of chaos and an NGO run by goblins

  • A gameable timeline detailing a precarious political situation that the players can interact with and disrupt

  • Over 100 full-color illustrations, with some on every page

  • Grand total of 100 random tables with 745 total results to facilitate endless sessions of adventures in a fantasy city

What you’ll get…
