100 Nobles to Encounter

Watermarked PDF

Nobles can be a common sight in fantasy settings that are loosely based on a medieval culture. They can be a source of patronage, useful contacts or possibly foes with a fair amount of clout behind them that can cause serious problems for characters. This supplement has a collection of 100 different nobles for characters to encounter. Each noble's name is given, as well as some other details such as title and personality. They can be used as a source of adventure hooks, long-term foes or simply background colour in a local court.

Here are some sample results:

  • Clarence Farthingdale: A strikingly handsome man, there is no doubt that Clarence married-up in life. In fact, it’s his smoky gray eyes and dulcet tones that make Daenna Farthingdale lose all sense when it comes to her much-younger husband. She ensures that he is always garbed in the finest clothes, riding the best horseflesh and carrying a masterfully crafted weapon (even if he doesn’t know the first thing about using it). Many say she even turns deaf ears toward the rumors of his affairs, even though the money to pay for his dalliances comes from her coffers.
  • Corbas Quint: Old Lord Quint, with his balding head, swelling belly and gouty leg, has only grown louder and less diplomatic over the years. Constantly threatening his political foes with reprisals and violence, he retains a small  mercenary army made up of vicious cutthroats and black-hearted brigands. Though he has never once set foot on a battlefield himself, and is judged a coward by many, he is more than happy to hide behind others’ blood and valor when it suits him.
  • Melanara Vorlon: A beautiful woman with a radiant smile, nut brown skin and eyes an enchanting shade of green, Melanara is beloved by those she rules over. She married the silver-maned Lord Vorlon after a very brief courtship, but no one in the village was surprised based on her charm. The Lady Vorlon even takes in young girls to be her handmaidens, preferring the prettiest and the purest to accompany her. If those offering their daughters knew the girls might find themselves locked in the dungeons, awaiting the sight of the Lady’s true face, there is no doubt the mob would burn Hilltop to the ground.
  • Damon Greyswan: The master of Greyswan Manor and its estates for decades now, Damon has buried three wives in the time that he’s held his family’s traditional seat. Still in the bloom of youth to the eyes of many, he credits his boyish good looks to clean living, and to a dash of elven blood in his lineage. In secret,  though, the Chalice Lord has tastes which run to the perverse, and there are several who have heard whispers about curses, and pacts for immortality.
  • Chrysanthemum Tomekeeper: A smiling dwarf with a burn scar along her cheek, scrapes and cuts along her hands and arms, and hair cut short so as not to be snagged, Chrysanthemum raises unusual animals. Pseudodragons, shocker lizards, miniature mimics and many more are a common sight in her part of the family estate. Once she even managed to tame a full-grown salamander, but sadly it escaped down one of the defunct mines on her family property.

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.
