20 (or More) Shops to Find in a Desert Bazaar

The PC's are searching the desert bazaar. What shops and businesses are they likely to find? Here is another list of 20 (or more) merchants meant to inspire GM's who are looking for material to enhance their desert-based games. The table was meant to be generic enough to be used for nearly any rpg system, but you may have to adjust the Races to be right for your game. Roll them up straight or mix and match results for more variety. I hope that you can find some inspiration here to create something far better for your own game. Have fun and game on!
