d100 Saucy Pamphlets of Shadel Port

Shadel Port has a thriving woodblock printing and hand copied and coloured pamphlets and books. While the city has a thriving literate population greater than most lands, many pamphlets are highly illustrated so even the illiterate can follow them. Some even have voice balloons and sequential images like old English children papers or comics. Other cities on the mainland restrict printing and ban broadsheets and pages from Shadel Port as scandalous rabble rousing filth. Popular prints are often lowbrow and publicly frowned on but everybody reads them or looks at pictures in a tavern or brothel waiting room. Secondhand stained ones available -d50% price. 

Political tracts that could get you executed not included here but include work criticizing the secret police or Barron. Having one could be a death sentance and you might get one by accident or recieve one without realizing. Secret police of Barron dont care if you dont know how you got it. They plant them on people all the time.

Unsavoury subjects are common. Many detail exploits of executed criminals, often sold near chopping blocks and hangmans scaffolds near your local shops. Sex, crime, scandals, strange lovemaking and beauty tips and many more topics. Ones below are some of the more popular ones. Ones about the party may appear from time to time, unauthorized of course.

I found book of stuff from 1500s Germany - best tale: kids practice butcher on younger brother killing him, hide from mom in oven, mom cooks them by accident jumps in well, dad comes home and hangs self when sees family dead. Cities that printed them ended up being embarrassed and destroyed tabloids. Cities where banned tabloids survived in stashes of collectors. Next time im in my old uni library will copy some as not on the net.


  1. Saucy indeed! At least Shadel Port is a literate town.

    1. cheapest paper in the known world and look how they thank the goddess of literacy! a pox on them all!

  2. Oh, yes, please! I would like to see the originals! :)

  3. Oh, yes, please! I'd like to see the originals!

    ... and if the paper is so cheap, there is probably an even worse use for it, than pamphlets... ;P

  4. wizard spellbooks make best toilet paper
