Everyone Else: A Book of Innkeepers, Farmers & More




Everyone Else

Written By: Richard Ruthman & Michael S. Thibault
Page Count: 67 pages
Cover by: M Jason Parent
Illustrated by: Juan Navarro & Traditional Woodcuts
Revised Edition
A book of statblocks for Innkeepers and Farmers may not make compelling reading, but with over 80 NPC professions and 320 stat blocks, Everyone Else is a valuable resource for game masters who are short on time and need to know the seneschal's Sense Motive modifier in a jiffy.

Getting hassled by the tax collector? PLONK... level 3 Expert with all the right skills and stats for being a tax collector coming right up. Players decide to complain about the tax collector to the local constabulary? PLONK... level 5 warrior with the right skills and stats for the town guard at your service... Time to go over his head and take matters up with the prince? PLONK... first you have to work your way past the level 1 and level 7 seneschals that run the palace before you can meet... PLONK... the level 5 aristocrat (idle noble) that supposedly runs this town that the players were only supposed to be in to restock their rations...

For DMs with a bit more time on their hands, value-added advice and suggestions for customizing NPCs, brief background on each NPC type, as well as rules to remember are included. If someone isn't certain about what is involved in being a lawyer in a pseudo-medieval setting, the introduction will give a overview of the information needed to put a lawyer to work in the game.

Taking full advantage of the electronic medium, the book includes comprehensive Bookmark choices, breaking the NPCs down by chapter sequentially as well as an alphabetical listing for ease of reference. Your download (or CD) includes two versions: one full colour version complete with graphics and bookmarks, another "Low Impact" edition without the backgrounds so those printing the book can save on toner! Being in PDF format, a DM can cut and paste the desired statblock into her game notes and then customize to suit her campaign or adventure in the wordprocessor of her choice. And since all of the text is 100% open game content, everyone can cut and paste to their heart's content.

Ready-made statblocks are faster than any PC generator, and far more portable! Not just a "rogues gallery", Everyone Else's NPCs are non-adversarial and non-adventuring NPCs, and reduce prep-time needed for the space between adventures, allowing a DM more freedom to work on the fun stuff -- the dungeons, quests, and thwarting the evil villains. This is one book in your DM's collection that won't collect dust!

This is the revised edition of Everyone Else. Stat blocks have been revised, clubs have the proper crit range, feats are redistributed and strength stats have been calculated into weapon damage.

I've moved on to 4e since purchasing this product, but when I was running a 3.5e campaign, I found it invaluable. Whenever I needed villagers, mooks, or what have you--NPCs on whom I didn't want to spend my own time--I pulled out "Everyone Else&qu [...]

What a find! This has become a must have for our group, as we love to find new folks to talk and deal with, and our DM now has instant folks at her fingertips. [...]

An invaluable resource for any Dungeon Master. I consider this one of the cornerstones of my D&D collection, essential for those times when a Player Character decides to mix it up with an NPC, be it in a contest of skill or an all-out brawl. Ther [...]

Everyone Else is an E-Book by Ambient. The book is full of the more mundane Non Player Characters that fill up a campaign world. This book is very well done and will be useful for any DM that uses NPCs in their game. The E-Book is seventy pages in leng [...]

EXCELLENT utility: NPCs have classes geared toward their specialty, the different occupations/specialties have stat blocks for different levels, and they are fully bookmarked and organized by function so they're easy to look up. For the occupations th [...]

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.
