Scions of Evil

Selected Option:

Every hero needs an antihero, every defender of the light must have darkness to keep at bay and every pure-hearted paladin needs a vile, shadow-cloaked assassin to cut down. Scions of Evil presents scores of foes to bedevil your PCs and five sinister bands of black-hearted individuals.


As well as over 20 pages of new material including new villains and minions, Scions of Evil collates the NPCs and groups first presented in:



Bandits of the Rampant Horror

Brethren of the Crimson Altar

Fellowship of the Blackened Oak

Kai’s Scoundrels

Thanegar’s Horde


Villains II

Villains III


As well as presenting 20 new villains and many new minions!

135 stat blocks (CR 1/4 - 23)!

Each villain benefits from an extensive write-up including notes on their background, personality, mannerisms and distinguishing marks as well as a fully detailed stat block, plot hooks and suggested encounter groups making it easy to insert the villain into almost any campaign.


Scions of Evil also includes a selection of minions including stalwart, black-hearted swordsmen; calculating, warrior monks; stealthy, amoral rogues and more powerful foes such as including noisome ghouls and a cunning gargoyle, charismatic quasit, bloodthirsty ogre-magi and malevolent invisible stalker!

This product is a Dual Format PDF. The downloadable ZIP file contains two versions, one optimised for printing and use on a normal computer and one optimised for use on a mobile device such as an iPad.

This is the most enjoyable-to-read supplement I have ever encountered. The villians in this book are worth building a campaign around. They are mechanically diverse, have fantastic backstories and motivations, and are all wonderfully different. I serio [...]

I personally have trouble coming up with villains who have a wide array of capabilities and tricks up their sleeve, along with interesting motivations to power their schemes. This book really makes this a lot more easy for me. I wish I'd picked it up [...]

This is really an excellent collection of superb NPCs for your Pathfinder (or 3.5) game! There are a lot of NPCs of varying level/CR and of lots of different types. I am using this book a lot in my current level 16-18 homebrew PF campaign, where I real [...]

I am going to cover very briefly layout and editing. Generally unless otherwise stated this is going to be a copy and paste job for all my reviews as its always an outstanding 5 stars. Information is well laid out and easy to access. I find that I don [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
