What if the big bad looked like just any other normal person?
What if the antagonist wouldn’t draw any strange looks when they went to the market?
What if the villain was just a villager?

Enter Villaingers, another epic release from Plot Hooks! Inside you'll find a 74-page collection of detailed NPCs that seem totally normal in their communities, but harbor a dark secret in their proverbial basement. There's everything from a toymaker that secretly crafts playthings that assassinate targets, to a harbormaster who's really providing leading a pirate ring, to a lizardfolk that's actually three kobolds under disguise self scouting the town for invasion! Enjoy 25 of these incredible characters, each with amazing art, backstories, stat blocks, and plot hooks for including them in your campaigns! You'll even find 7 new magic items and a new spell amidst all the chaos!

This release is powered by Plot Hooks, a creation network dedicated to the art of collaborative storytelling. Between our podcast and written content, we seek to instill confidence in a new wave of storytellers and provide the resources for crafting fantastic narratives. Follow us on social media at @plothooks for all our stuff. And always remember, #EveryoneCanBeAStoryteller.

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.
