OSR style adventure locations with fun maps, quirky denizens and a trove of ideas.
181 page PDF by mostly by Michael Prescott containing 55 adventure sites or locations. Each site is densely detailed in about 2 pages. The whole thing is system neutral, and can be used with any fantasy game system. There is also a bestiary, with a collection of custom creatures. Many of the sites could be linked together to form a campaign. A separate PDF has player versions of all the wonderful maps.
I have used about 10 of the maps when running Forbidden Lands, Shadow of the Demon Lord, and Worlds Without Number campaigns. Sometimes I would totally disregard the text and keyed locations and make up my own, adapting it to the story as needed. Sometimes I would use the site as written. My favourite is probably "A Litany of Scratches" which contains a vampire tree and undead in a crumbling monastery with partially flooded lower level.
Whenever I run a fantasy campaign, I return to this book. I page through the maps to pick one that looks fun, and that might suit the story. I highly recommend it.
