Brava’s Blooms

Here is another shop’s inventory straight out of our current Pathfinder game. I used a fictional/fantasy plant name generator for inspiration. Fellow GM’s feel free to snag this and modify for your own means. You can find additional material here.

Brava’s Blooms is a covered stand run by a large woman with short brown hair and an eye patch. She sells both regional flowers and flowers from the colonies. Her wares change every few days, and you never know what will be available. Today’s options are: 

Frog Flowers, a large emerald green flower with a long red pistil- 1sp per bloom

Pink Trollflock, stems have bunches of small fluffy-looking deep blue flowers- 2sp per dozen*

Morning arrow, long white flowers with red tips, single flower per stem- 3sp per dozen

Diadolai Rose, tiny reddish-pink flowers, three per stem- 4sp per dozen

The Loremaster’s Riddle, delicate orange flowers with long, distinct petals that droop in such a way they resemble a jester’s hat- 5sp per dozen

Mixed Bouquets designed by Brava herself- 5sp

Sure to grab the attention of observant players. All Trollflocks (in my version of Kalamar) are blue in color, they are distinguished by the varying color of their sepals. 

Iron Cat Barn Dairy & Cheese Shop

Dungeons and Dragons and/or Pathfinder does not get enough attention here…especially, where it takes up such a huge portion of my life. You can anticipate seeing more posts like this in the future.

One of my favorite aspects of GMing a roleplaying game is world-creation, specifically the small everyday details of life. I’m constantly harassing my players with lists of food available at various pubs and fruit stands, detailed lists of merchant inventories, and irrelevant details of the towns and landscapes they visit. My players are excellent about humoring me in this, and often times they even enjoy it. My current group of players spends more money on mechanically useless things than any other group I’ve ever encountered…I love them for this though since those mechanically useless things are a role-playing gold mine. Their characters are fleshed-out whole people with a depth of interests, hobbies, likes and dislikes.

On a recent trip to Dayolen, they visited a cheese shop called “Iron Cat Barn Dairy & Cheese”. We now know what the character’s cheese preferences are. For example, Trosk, the half-orc ranger, likes his cheese “strong and spicy, just like his women” while as Cora, the half-elven bard, “prefers her cheese to have more delicate flavors.”

Fellow GMs: You are more than welcome to adapt this material to your own needs. The names of the cheeses are simply names of places in our current setting (Kingdoms of Kalamar). Swap out the names with settings from your own campaign, and boom…cheese shop.

A taste of the countryside in the middle of the city, Iron Cat Barn’s Dairy and Cheese shop is popular among both locals and visitors. While clean, the shop is clearly run by simple country folk- halflings, to be precise. A fat orange cat is sleeping in the back corner of the shop.
