Join Them in The Stars!

Meet these 13 wondrous strangers at any time in your life. The galaxy that the player characters inhabit should be full of rich and vibrant characters with whom they can interact. While most need little more than names and general descriptions, some require complete statistics, such as law enforcement, hackers, and space marines. The PCs might find themselves in combat with these characters, either against them or as allies. Alternatively, the PCs might find themselves relying on the skills and abilities of the NPCs. In Close Encounters: NPC Codex you can quickly refer to the following NPCs to meet your GMing needs.

Close Encounters: NPC Codex is a book intended to give GMs a wide range of prebuilt NPC characters to use on the fly, as they see fit. Inside you’ll find a host of 13 different NPCs (3 combatants, 3 experts, 2 spellcasters, and 5 custom), with each entry represented over ten different Challenge Ratings 1 - 19; that’s 130 new NPC entries! These NPCs include the seven Core Races, sentient swarms, transforming robots, and a new Wild Wyrm dragon template. Each NPC has a full stat block, all the in-game information you need to run the character, and a brief paragraph about how they fit into the galaxy around them. Whether you need a lowly CR 1 Vid-Star Host, or a CR 19 Cyborg Skittermander, Close Encounters: NPC Codex has something for you!

Close Encounters is a line of Starfinder Roleplaying Game compatible books from Fat Goblin Games filled with a ready-made encounter and numerous plot hooks and adventure seeds for Gamemasters to quickly adapt for their own tables. Each book includes fully statted monsters and NPCs for the Starfinder Roleplaying Game, sometimes all new, sometimes adapted from other game systems, sometimes both.

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.
