Arcane Quarter: A City Quarters Sourcebook

A fantasy d20 System sourcebook by JD Wiker with maps by Christopher West.

Arcane Quarter: A City Quarters Sourcebook is the third volume of the award-winning City Quarters series, which began with the highly acclaimed Thieves’ Quarter.

Arcane Quarter explores the workshops, libraries, and arcane orders that might appear in an urban fantasy setting, from the artisans making Mastercraft goods to the aging wizards and sorcerers protecting their academic traditions. Every aspect of the setting is created with the larger city of Liberty in mind but designed so that GMs can pick and choose which elements to include in their own campaigns.

Arcane Quarter includes:

new maps by Christopher West, a regular contributor to Dragon and Dungeon magazines
dozens of complete NPC stat blocks, from craftsmen and artisans to apprentices and archmages
new rules for formalized arcane duels and merchants who sell magic items
plots, plot hooks, and conspiracies linking it all together
