For a time during the late Middle Ages and the Renaissance, Venice was the wealthiest city in Europe. Now you can expand the lore from GURPS Hot Spots: Renaissance Venice to bring that era's commerce to life.
Help or hinder the Venetian mercantile empire with rules, history, and insight. Learn how to prepare for and carry out trade, including an overview of the challenges of shipping, risks of voyages during this era, ships (with GURPS stats) and seafaring life, and more. Discover ways clever and ambitious merchants can manipulate the system to their benefit. You'll also get a map marked with significant ports as well as an unlabeled version for note-taking or adventuring needs. With this supplement, you'll make your fortune in the way that Venetians do best: as a merchant!
