NPC Codex

Suggested Price $1.49

Allies and rivals within!

Inside are 20 flavorful NPCs to use in your 5th edition campaign. Each is given their own personality, quirks, and memorable features to help gamemasters bring them to life. They can be interesting faces in town, potential allies to aid in adventuring, or villains of their own - the choice is up to you!

Individual art files of each NPC are also provided.

The NPC Codex is part of Dungeons on Demand: Volume Two.

Dungeons on Demand

Dungeons on Demand is a line instant dungeons you can drop into your campaign, each is designed for 4-5 player parties of specified levels, and each dungeon is complete with a back story, hand drawn maps, traps, puzzles, and reference information to monsters and treasure. You can customize each one to fit in your campaign however you wish, and each one can be played through in one or two gaming sessions.

Dungeons on Demand is not affiliated with Wolpertinger Press or Dungeon-on-Demand, but you should definitely check them out!


Author Dan Coleman has been a Dungeon Master for two decades now, first picking up the dice with second edition. He can tell you what THAC0 stands for, a first level fighter's saving throw against rods, staves, and wands, and why players get excited to find "Treasure Type H."

Since then he's been through every new edition, and has written custom classes, spells, items, adventures, and system mods for each. By day he's a humble graphic designer and illustrator, but by night he's a full time role-player and game designer.

As a DM w/ a custom world/campaign and a busy schedule, well made tools like this are very helpful. Each character contains significant background information and will be fairly easy to cut-and-paste into VTT's such as Fantasy Grounds (my preference) [...]

This is perfect. I need some NPCs for a one-shot and just dropped these in. I particularly loved that each character had artwork. In roll20, I was able to drop these in as new "maps" and when players went to interact with the NPC, thei [...]

This is an absolutely awesome product and a great NPC resource, especially for DM's on a time/prep budget. Nyx and Corde were used during a random encounter in my current campaign and have since become essential to our story over the past six months. [...]

Like all the material I bought from Dan Coleman, this is very useable and high-quality content. Probably my favorite of his releases so far (I own them all) as I am always looking to add NPCs to an existing adventure I'm running (Princes of the Apocaly [...]

Very well done like all of Dan Coleman's products. Very easy to use. Has all the information at your fingertips to throw an NPC in your campaign with a moments notice. Hopefully he does more of these. [...]

Original electronic
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.
