City Encounters

The streets were poorly light, the partial moon was hidden by the roof tops and the light of a candle in the window was not enough to give much illumination in the slum district of the city Morg had found himself in; along way from Cimmeria, this Zamorian city was unlike much he had seen in the past and he had much to learn of it's ways. A cry rang out in the silent night and the barbarian's hand rush to his sword hilt, the cry was near, but far away not to alarm him! He moved slowly forward; intent on avoiding the incident!

City Maps


I started creating this map quite a few months back; this is based on a City Encounter Charts I working at this present moment and hope to finish soon. But, as with many things, you do something and find a lot more to do; much to my frustration, so working at it with determination to finish it.

But first the city maps.

The maps here are to give an example of a city planning, but the Encounter Charts (to come) could be of used for any city (Shadizar, Tarantia, Khemi, Etc.), just roll of the appropriate district and get a random encounter.

Here are the Maps:

Here: Font city Map.
Here: City Map.
Here: City Sewer System Map.
Here: Blank Basic District Map.

Just to Note: The last near blank map is how I started, then started placing buildings; at first it was one building at a time, till that was way to slow, I started bunching buildings and hacking a dark patches to make roads and lane. I very happy with result, but it not Rembrandt).

City Districts and Wards Encounter Charts


Various districts and wards of the city, these do not necessary need to be used with the city map provided, but can be used with any city desired, Shadizar, Tarantia, Khemi, etc. And not every district/ward need be used, just take what you need.

Also; I cannot believe everyone agrees with my NPC classes, but if Petty Thief is rolled, just use a Thief, if Predator is rolled, use Barbarians, etc.

Here: Caravan Districts.
Here: Craftsman and Docks Districts.
Here: Market Districts.
Here: Nobel and Merchant Districts.
Here: Temple Districts.

Here: Castle and Garrison Wards.

Here: Slum Districts.
Here: Sewer System.
Here: River System.

Here: Unique Encounters Chart.

City Encounter Descriptions:

A description of encounter of a mundane type:

Note:
I have taken these encounters from Gary Gygax's 1E AD&D Urban Encounters from the DMG and done some chances to it to suit Conan D20.
