You're walking through the forest... There are trees... Oaks, pines... Some shrubs...Uhh...

So, what's growing over there, GM?

What is Globetrotter's Guide to Greenery?

Have you ever found yourself in a situation where your mind just goes blank while looking for a description of the landscape? Did your players go for days through an almost-sterile jungle because you kinda forgot how's that bloody plant called? Fret not, Globetrotter's Guide to Greenery got your back. 

This series of 12-page PDFs introduces various biomes, their signature plants, and a handy list of descriptors for all of the senses - now your player characters can not only 'see' but also 'hear', 'smell', 'taste', and 'feel' the world around them. Devised as a quick reference during the game, each PDF covers one specific type of terrain. 

Each of the ten plant cards include: 

  • a botanical illustration, 
  • a read-aloud description of the 'Perception test' variety, 
  • additional lore to share with characters who are knowledgeable about nature - or just wanting to check out the plants from up close,
  • enough inspiration to send your mind racing and spin it all into a memorable experience for the party.

What's growing on the Freshwater Marshes?

More than you'd expect - it's a great place for the characters to explore. Teeming with plant and animal life, full of suspicious sounds, with surprisingly placed shallows and depths, freshwater marshes are an underutilized landscape in tabletop role-playing games. But, you know, they don't have to be!

Take up the challenge and upgrade your world-building game with Globetrotter's Guide to Greenery. Your setting, your campaigns, and your players will all be happy you did!

Globetrotter's Guide to Greenery: Freshwater Marshes is literally the perfect flora guide to go with my Pipedream RPG. When you're foraging for edible plants in the marshes around Irisfields so that you can serve up a supper ritual to enchant the hardest hearts, you'll be glad for this supplement.
