About Dire rugrat publishing

Dire Rugrat Publishing was born out of Kelly and Ken’s love of gaming. Many a session was spent on role-playing and world building; eventually the idea came to take some of these detailed pieces and share them with the rest of the world.

We are focused on creating easy to use GM tools, primarily drop in locations and NPCs. Dire Rugrat Publishing has created numerous products aimed to add a little role-playing to your evening.

From Tangible Taverns, to quick mini-adventures, to unique 5e resources, we've got you covered.

Tangible Taverns: The Bull & The Bear (5e)

An anniversary edition of Tangible Taverns: The Bull & The Bear is now available.

This is one of our best selling taverns, and we felt it deserved a bit of extra attention. This PDF includes rumour and event tables, a colour tavern map, and descriptions of the establishment's inhabitants (including names, physical features, personalities, and stat blocks). There is more original artwork, and a bit more about some of the characters.

Available in Pathfinder, 5e and system neutral compatible formats.

Houses and Heraldry II

Ten pre-built noble houses ready to insert into your campaign!

Each house is laid out on one page; the top half contains the house name, its motto, a representation of their heraldic device as it would appear on a shield, and an information block detailing important personages, numbers of troops, and vassal houses.

The lower portion provides enough detail about the interesting characters of the house to get the GM's imagination going, but leaves plenty of room for a GM to add their own details.
