One of the most popular establishments in the Trades Ward is the Curiosity Shop. Located on Innkeeper Street, a short block away from Market Square, the Curiosity Shop specializes in antiques, curios, bric-a-brac, and other rare junk collected over several hundred years by the shop’s proprietor; a silver-tongued janni from the far wastes who calls himself Naboo.
Most locals love the Curiosity Shop as it attracts a wide array of customers to the area. A fair percentage of Naboo's business comes from sailors, soldiers, and other worldly travelers who require mementos of their exploits. Outside of his shop Naboo is somewhat of a recluse, though he's been supportive enough of the surrounding district, pays his taxes, and is considered an upstanding citizen. Most find him friendly, if not charming (though many chalk up his charm to good business sense) and his prices are moderate enough. He also has a knack for finding "lost" items or procuring certain items that one might consider "hard-to-get".

Welcome to Blueprints Backdrops!
This set of products is based on 0one's popular Blueprints. In Blueprints Backdrops, you will find a fully developed version of one of the locations from the Blueprints line. The Backdrop features a complete description of the location and its NPCs and monsters (if any), penned by one of our talented writers and portrayed by skillful artists. You also get a simpler version of the map found in Blueprints and a complete detailed 3D map of the location. The 3D view will help you to visualize the area and better describe it to your players. You can even show it to them, if you wish.
The product is suitable for use with any fantasy RPG system. We have separated the d20 stats from the main text, allowing you to print out either a generic description or a fully d20-statted version.
But the good stuff is just beginning.
This product takes full advantage of PDF technology, joining old-fashioned style with the most advanced electronic features.
Using the exclusive "Rule the Dungeon" feature (look for a big, blue-n-white button - don't worry, it won't print) you will be able to fully customize this product. The 3D map can be changed to show only one floor (for example), with or without walls (for another), with or without furniture, only an external view, and on and on, with many combinations possible!
This product has also been designed to help busy referees prepare adventures - or even single encounters. Instead of spending extra time scaling the encounters to your party, the d20 stats are scaled in three different versions suitable for low, mid, and high levels of play, using a "Rule the Dungeon" button.
This button lets you choose which level to play, and all the relevant text will change accordingly: monsters will scale, DCs and traps will change, behaviors of the villains will change, all according to the level of play you choose.
Note: The original map of the Golden Eel Inn appears in 0one's Blueprints: The Great City, Trades Ward.
