Cities of Splendor


Cities of Splendor: Tour Guide of the Free Cities is a more in-depth look at each of the Free Cities of Terrinoth. Using the same organizational method as Kyle Skarp’s “New Angeles Tour Guide”, (with his permission), each of the eight (8) Free Cities include:

  • The official heraldry of the city (pictured, as sourced from the Runebound game).
  • General information about the city, it’s location, and location relative to baronies.
  • Different points of interest and businesses within the city.
  • Rarity modifiers to show which goods and services are easier or harder to find in the city.
  • Different factions in the city.
  • Cost of living in the city for daily, weekly, and yearly costs for different social classes (Poor, Workers, Merchants, or Aristocrats).

The locations and factions within each city entry are based on existing lore, largely from mentions in the sourcebook, more details from Descent expansions and/or fan-based creations. For example, locations mentioned in the official beginning adventure: The Haunted City, or other content released even pre-Foundry.

The points of interest and factions within each city can certainly provide a number of Adventure Seeds for GMs as well as providing some flavor context of each city and what makes it unique in Terrinoth.

My thanks again to Kyle Skarp for allowing the use of this very helpful organizational format.

Developed by veteran GM Chris Markham (as Gazrok Games), this is one of many titles already released for the Foundry and for the Terrinoth setting. Though this adventure is set in the world of Mennara, it can be converted for use in your own fantasy world. The Genesys Core Rulebook, Realms of Terrinoth sourcebook, and either Genesys Dice or the Genesys Dice App are required to use this product.

Rule System(s)
Original electronic
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.
