Skirmisher Publishing Releases 100 Oddities for a Pilgrimage Trail

Have you ever been walking a trail or driving down the road and seen something on the side of the road? It happens all the time. Most of the time, you might just keep on going. But occasionally you might stop and see what that thing is. And just like in real life, your gamers might do that as well. For those times, there's 100 Oddities for a Pilgrimage Trail, the new book from Skirmisher Publishing. You can get your copy now.

From the release:

Welcome to 100 Oddities for a Pilgrimage Trail, the latest title in Skirmisher Publishing’s popular and ongoing “100 Oddities” series! For thousands of years — and especially since the era of the Middle Ages — people have been prompted to undertake spiritual journeys of various sorts and this concept in general, and the desire to help facilitate and inspire such quests was the motivation for the creation of this universal sourcebook.

This system-free thematic sourcebook contains an annotated list of 100 people, objects, conditions, or other things that characters might encounter on a trail dedicated to the veneration of some deity, demigod, hero, saint, or religion. It also contains a subtable for determining the characteristics of roadside markers and more than 60 illustrations, including two original full-page images.

As with other "Oddities" volumes, the contents of this book can be used in many different ways and in any manner that suits a particular storyteller and the needs of their game. All of the entries can be used separately or in conjunction with one another to add evocative details to a pilgrimage trail or any other route and can even be used as the basis for travel-based adventures.
