100 NPCs You Might Meet At The Tavern

Watermarked PDF

Characters will often spend a substantial amount of time in taverns, whether following up leads, meeting contacts, resting or looking for clues and information. Some of the people met may be important for whatever quest the characters are currently undertaking. But what about the others?

Taverns and inns are not frequented just by people who are immediately needed. They will have other customers and staff as well. Rather than simply glossing over these individuals, this supplement provides a detailed list of 100 different people to flesh out a tavern. Each is given a name and described. Some of them may have skills and knowledge that characters find useful and others could be a potential source of adventure hooks.

Here is a sample result:

Arian Nightsbridge: A big man with the crooked nose and sunken knuckles of a lifetime brawler, Arian claims to be a hedge squire. He can list every lord he’s fought for, and every master he’s served, though only those with a knowledge of the most obscure branches of noble family trees will recognize the names. Dressed in a roughspun tunic, he looks the furthest thing from a knight... except for the battle-tested sword at his side. Touchy about his word and his honour, what he lacks in courtly manners he more than makes up for in a willingness to stand and fight when it’s asked of him.

One page is the cover, one the front matter and around two thirds of a page is filler and ads.

Great supplement. This comes in handy when you need an NPC that's more fleshed out than stats and generic classes. Definitely recommend! [...]

A great mix of characters to put not only in your taverns/inns but anywhere your world needs a quick NPC. I'm looking forward to using this in game. [...]

Wonderful collection of NPCs! The set is not only diverse in species, character class, etc, but in many other aspects that make each one both interesting and of interest, adding potential breadth and depth to any game they show up in! I'm fond of the [...]

Nice cover and page art – beautiful but still fairly easy to read. A space between each entry would have helped. I expected to see a list to roll on, but the supplement jumps right into the character descriptions. This makes it a little more difficul [...]

Love it! I especially enjoy the Gome and Halfling ones. Its nice to see NPCs with more interesting traits then the typical "hooded figure in the corner", or random tavern folk. A good thing to have for any DM looking to add flavor to towns an [...]

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.
