Colorful Characters: 100 NPCs for Fantasy RPGs

Selected Option:
PDF + Card(s)

Colorful Characters is a deck of 100 tarot-sized cards containing a variety of characters with wonderful art, vibrant colors, and detailed personalities. They have tons of character background information, personality traits, and goals to help work them in to any fantasy campaign you're running. 

They have some basic stat and alignment information to slot them into D&D and D&D-adjacent (Pathfinder, etc.) games, but the stats are broad enough that you can use them as a jumping off point for any fantasy RPG.

The cards are tarot-size (2.75x4.75"). They're sturdy and feel great in your hands. The colors are vibrant and the text is very legible. They have rounded corners and are matte-printed.


  • All 100 vibrant, wonderful characters!
  • A smartphone-friendly PDF, bookmarked and with a visual clickable table of contents
  • Print-and-Play PDF to easily make your own deck
  • Tokens and Figures (512x512px) of all 100 characters for use with VTTs like Roll20 or Foundry

The printed cards do not come with a tuckbox. There are 100 cards. DTRPG tarot tuckboxes only hold 80.

For GMs...

  • Ever needed a quick NPC with some personality to them in a pinch?
  • Want adaptable NPCs that you can fit into pretty much any situation? 
  • Have trouble coming up with names on the fly?
  • Need a quick adventure hook to fill some space in a session?

For players...

  • Ever have trouble coming up with a clear visual for your character?
  • Need some help thinking of a quirk or trait to give your character a unique quality?
  • Want the next NPC you invite to tag along to have a stronger identity?
  • Need a quick idea for a one-shot character?
This deck has you covered!

Is this the same deck of NPCs from the KS of a few years ago?

It uses some assets from that KS, but with about 50 new NPCs and a new author (Ken Stine).

If you backed that original KS, you should have received this deck for free. Check the updates on the KS page if so. There's also a long explanation of the situation with the original project / this new project there (in short, Ken came in and saved the day).

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.
