This “deck” offers you 49 different NPC and monster “head shots” that you can use as visual aids in your games. The images don’t seem to be intended for any one specific game or setting. The characters depicted run the gamut from sphinxes to [...]

As a highly visual person, the concept of a deck of cards with NPC's ready to go really appeals to me as a GM. This deck of 49 cards comes as individual image files with 49 fronts and 1 back. Looking through the artists, just under half of this deck wa [...]

I love the idea of giving players visuals of the people they meet. Sure, we GMs paint pictures with our words, but a picture is worth 1000 of those. At least, most of the time. Overall, I give the Rite NPC Deck a passing grade, but I do have feedback [...]

The Rite NPC Deck is a PDF file filled with printable NPC headshots with a generic "back" sheet for NPC notes, if you want to stat them out or the like. Most of the art is good to great, with a heavy emphasis on fantasy (veering heavil [...]

The 49 images are mostly fantasy, although there are what appears to be a robo-ettin, a mecha, and a smiling gentleman with a distinctly Centauri haircut, and several others could be used as aliens of various types. Most of the images are for humans an [...]

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.
