Absolutely fantastic. This is one of the best NPC resources that I have ever seen. Every single character fairly leaps off the page and I can't wait for the characters in my game to meet them. Very well done. Just two things. Please consider making this available in print on demand and keep 'em coming.

Missed a great opportunity to just call it the 'Friend or Foelio'

On a serious note it's always great to have easily accessible NPCs ready to go, even better when they have lore pre-written

Having seen this Friend and For Folio first hand, I have to tell you, it is - hands down an AWESOME accessory for anyone running a game. The amount of detail contained within will blow you away (so much so that the NPCs could easily be used as pre-generated characters for players to play as if you wanted). I HIGHLY recommend this!

That's disappointing; the art and layout looks really nice, and it would be nice to see it all in color. Thank you for the quick response.

PoD is certainly an option, should the book prove popular enough!

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.
