Welcome to the GM's Day sale! From now through March 10th, this title has been marked down by up to 40%! For more values, visit our GM's Day sale page.

Need a quick NPC?

Whether the PCs need a contact in the resistance movement, a mentor for a mystical religion, or a hot-shot enemy to harass them throughout a campaign, these NPCs cover a large variety of characters. 

Of course you're also free to change a character's background to better fit a specific adventure. Or use them as "face" cards and develop the NPC with your own background, personality & other details from scratch.

The PDF version of this product has 4 cards per page, laid out so page two is designed to be printed on the back of page one and so on. This layout is optimized to allow the card backs to match the fronts.  Or order the printed cards and get the PDF at no extra cost!

Minimal Game Stats

The cards focus on each character's background and personality. The few stats used (class/profession, race) give you an idea of the NPC's abilities. You're free to develop the NPC's stats in the system you're using as needed.

Adventure Hooks Abound!

Each character has interesting details that can lead to adventures or side-quests:

  • Is Heretic 6 alive? Should it be destroyed?
  • Prince Harule is a good man. Will he be a good king?
  • Is the android Arliss an enemy sleeper agent?
  • What may Shirleen discover through her telepathic connection to the universe?
  • Will smuggler Byron Nets make that final score?
  • Will Monireh achieve her mystical destiny?

See the Preview for samples!

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.
