What's your favorite city supplement and why?


I only own the Forgotten Realms City System box and despite the glorious grandeur of the maps I never got much out of it and found it disappointing.

Poster maps dominate the table and help players make choices, but their bird's eye views don't simulate moving around an unfamiliar city at all.

Random encounter tables are jolly, especially if they vary by district (like X1's island regions), but I like a little more to go off of than "d3 beggars."

Taxes, economy, trade, blah ... I probably don't need to know more than the average man on the street.

Adventure hooks? Yes please!

I know that's a pretty fussy list, but do you know anything that fits the bill?
I'm considering Fever-Dreaming Marlinko, though I'm generally not wild about gonzo.

I've always loved the artwork of our hobby ... it's funny how it seems to run along its own track rather than cleaving closer to the game-as-played.

D&D: art vs play
This was the very first image that I ever associated with Dungeons & Dragons. I encountered it when my older brother brought home a 1981 Moldvay Basic set from KB Toys with hard-earned cash from mowing lawns (I bought a tauntaun with mine). The image was fa...
