List of buildings for fantasy towns

I asked for some help on Twitter to come up with ideas for the random town generator I'm working on for Here Be Taverns.

The community's response was so creative and helpful, that I decided to put them together for easier sharing.

You can see all the ideas on this Google spreadsheet.

You can download them as JSON in this Github repo.

You can read them all right here. Enjoy!
