Edinburgh festival

The heat/humidity has calmed down for now (but another wave is predicted for the end of August…yay…). The heat/humidity has caused some delay in my work due to being ill as heck from it, so next week’s planned PDF *might* be delayed…I hope not, but if there is no release next week, this is why, nothing to worry about, just a “sigh….one of those things” moment.

So back to the semi-regular schedule.

This week’s PDF highlight covers “Empire Builder – Holiday/Festival Outline”. Orginal published last year in January 2021, EB-HFO has gone on to get Silver on DTRPG, which puts it in the top 17648 products (14.78%) of products on there!

The Empire Builder range is one of my most popular series and is high up on the list to be revised and compiled into a larger PDF and possibly POD. I feel like it needs one or two more things though to help fill it out a bit more.


Empire Builder – Holiday/Festival Outline

Give the citizens of your empire a well-deserved holiday!

Holidays and festivals and can be a vital part of an empires history and morale. They serve as reminders of events of history, to honour those who have gone and to teach new citizens the importance of certain traditions, even if the original meaning has been lost.

They can bring people together or be a time of immense stress. Whatever the reason, it is almost unheard of for an empire to not have at least one holiday or festival.

Part of the Empire Builder range, designed to help flesh out your baronies, kingdoms and empires and give you details or outlines to build from.

Inside you’ll find tables for…

  • Mood: Is it a jolly festival or a sombre one?
  • Type: Cultural, religious or something else?
  • Age: is the event new or been going on for decades?
