I really do enjoy the GM's Miscellany series of releases from Raging Swan Press. They are simply an excellent tool for the GM that likes to sandbox, as you always have something ready for your players when they "zig" instead of "zag".
GM's Miscellany: Wilderness Dressing (System Neutral Edition) is today's Deal of the Day over at RPGNow. I own it and it is good. Normally $13.99 in PDF you can grab it for the next 23 hours or so for $6.99. Even better, the Print plus PDF is on sale for $10.98. So, for 4 bucks more plus shipping you can get the Print in the mail and the PDF for instant gratification.
From the blurb:
Tired of glossing over the details of your PCs’ overland journey (except for the inevitable, violent random encounters)? Want to add in minor features of interest to their journeys? Want to make their journeys seem more “real”? Then GM’s Miscellany: Wilderness Dressing is for you! A compilation of the Wilderness Dressing line, each installment focuses on a different type of wilderness or a feature therein and gives the harried GM the tools to bring such features to life with interesting and cool noteworthy features.
GM’s Miscellany: Wilderness Dressing presents loads of great features and details to enliven your PCs’ travel both overland and by sea. Designed to be used both during preparation or actual play, GM’s Miscellany: Wilderness Dressing is an invaluable addition to any GM's armory!
