Skirmisher Publishing knows that being a GM is rough. You've gotta build entire worlds, including rather intricate cities. Their City Builder series of books is designed to help out, and they've been working at updating them for a while now. In this instance, they have the newly-updated Armories, Blacksmithies, & Other Craftsman Places book (City Builder Volume 2, for short) that you can download now.
From the website:
City Builder Volume 2: Craftsman Places is the second in a series of 11 complementary books that will help guide Game Masters through the process of designing exciting and compelling urban areas and places within them for their campaigns.
