Henchfolk & Hirelings


A Pathfinder Roleplaying Game PLAYER'S RESOURCE supplement by Christian Alipounarian, Creighton Broadhurst and Andy Glenn


Got a small adventuring party and need some trusted minions to round it out? Remember the good old days when you could have loads of henchmen? If so, Henchfolk & Hirelings is for you! 


Based on the classic rules presented in the 1st edition of the world's most popular roleplaying game, Henchfolk & Hirelings provides an alternative system to Leadership for handling your character's most favoured companions. Henchfolk & Hirelings also presents 100 potential henchmen for your PCs, each benefiting from basic information (alignment, sex, race, class and ability scores) as well as notes detailing their background, personality, mannerisms and distinguishing features. Alternatively, the GM can use the 100 NPCs within to depict fellow adventurers and other persons of note the PCs encounter on their adventures.

According to the foreward, this supplement is an attempt to fix 3rd edition D&D's not-so-great Leadership feats and cohorts and replace them with rules that captures the spirit of first edition AD&D's henchmen rules. (I play GURPS 4e and Labyri [...]

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.
