[LPJ Design] Trade Routes: Expanded Caravan Rules Sourcebook (PFRPG) Now available


Compatible Products from Other Publishers


Louis Porter Jr. Design has released its all new sourcebook for use with The Pathfinder Roleplaying Game called Trade Routes: Expanded Caravan Rules Sourcebook. Here is information on this product:

A train of camels, carrying a thousand vials of puum dust - the wealth of nations - strides slowly across the desert, its lookouts alert for the shadow of a dragon, passing high overhead. On a king's road crossing the old growth forests of the North, just ten miles from the sanctuary city of Hillsboro Downs, bandits waylay a twenty-horse team carrying casks of fine Halfling cheese and Dwarven brandy. Fleeing a loveless marriage, a young Half Elven princess signs on to work a traveling circus as an acrobat, hiding her true identity behind a velvet mask. Caravans are more than just a part of the mundane economy of the world. They are a springboard to future adventures. The following new rules build upon the innovative caravan simulation rules found in the Jade Regent Adventure Path Player Guide, published by Paizo Publishing. These new rules offer new possibilities to players and game masters alike engaged in nomadic adventures. This sourcebook contains:

• 13 New Wagon types including including Bordello Wagon, Penitentiary Wagon, Skeletal Horse Team and Steam Engine
• 13 New caravan equipment including Cargo Balloon, Letter of Passage, Proud Colors and Sin Caravan
• Nearly 20 new caravan feats including Banker's Caravan, Fighting Beasts, Phantom Drivers and Reputable Mark
• Real-World Logistics of Caravans
• Nearly 10 Caravan plot hooks
• Over 20 Threats To The Caravan from Avalanche to Drow Marauders to Necromantic Horde.
• Plus 5 Sample caravans to use in your games.

I just got this and it looks good; when I print off a copy and read it more thoroughly I'll see if I can't review it here.

That would be much appreciated.

I've been looking for something like this. An AP based on the travels of Marco Polo would be so much fun.

Isn't that what the Tian Xia AP is essentially going to be?


With Skull and Shackles coming out next year, we hope to expand what we did in Trade Route to sea and air based caravans also.

I usually don't use that much 3rd party stuff in my Campaigns, but after reading the caravan rules in Jade regent I immediately wanted to see more support for that system because my players immediately fell in love with these rules, but wished there was more options. This Pdf did not disappoint, it is stock-full of all kind of neat ideas to create exactly the kind of caravan you want. My players are going to have tons of fun with this product.

I haven't seen it so I can't comment on it. If it is then I have a new entry on my birthday/Xmas list.

That would be very cool to see something for trade routes for ships as well.

Lets just say we are working on something that will make sea travel and combat A LOT more fun when Skull and Shackles come out. Hint! Hint!


1 person marked this as a favorite.

If you are looking for a MS Excel sheet to help run your Caravan I now have all the rules from the Trade Routes: Expanded Caravan Rules Sourcebook included. I also did a lot of work to help manage weather conditions and effects.

Just go to my profile and click on the link to download. Hope you all like it.

I am very excited to see what you do with the Ship Combat in Skull and Shackles.

I am hoping that we might be able to do something a little different then what so may other 3PP are looking to do with those rules. I don't want to add more new rules for rules sake. As a game developer, that does not excite me, and I am guessing other real game designers feel the same way. I want to make creative adjustment on the rules that are currently being used. Anybody can make more new rules; I want to be creative with the rules we have.
