Globetrotter’s Guide to Greenery: Desert

You’re walking through the forest… There are trees… Oaks, pines… Some shrubs…Uhh…

So, what’s growing over there, GM?

What is Globetrotter’s Guide to Greenery?

Have you ever found yourself in a situation where your mind just goes blank while looking for a description of the landscape? Did your players go for days through an almost-sterile jungle because you kinda forgot what’s that bloody plant called? Fret not, the Globetrotter’s Guide to Greenery got your back. 

This series of 12-page PDFs introduces various biomes, their signature plants, and a handy list of descriptors for all of the senses – now your player characters can not only ‘see’ but also ‘hear’, ‘smell’, ‘taste’, and ‘feel’ the world around them. Devised as a quick reference during the game, each PDF covers one specific type of terrain. 

Each of the ten plant cards include: 

  • a botanical illustration, 
  • a read-aloud description of the ‘Perception test’ variety, 
  • additional lore to share with characters who are knowledgeable about nature – or just wanting to check out the plants from up close,
  • enough inspiration to send your mind racing and spin it all into a memorable experience for the party.

What’s growing in the Desert?

Cacti, right? Well, yes, but way more than that. This issue takes you for a trip through different types of arid and semi-arid deserts, and introduces ten useful plants you may encounter there. From agave to prickly pears to tree aloe, you’ll find this issue full of edible, valuable, medicinal, and deadly plants.

Take up the challenge and upgrade your world-building game with Globetrotter’s Guide to Greenery. Your setting, your campaigns, and your players will all be happy you did!
