NPC Portraits Deck: Fantasy
Need a quick NPC? Flip through a few of these NPC cards and you're sure to find an NPC that fits the situation. All the common races are represented (humans, dwarves, elves, gnomes, halflings, half-elves and half-orcs). Many of the NPCs are low level, but they range from level 1 to 17. Of course you're also free to change a character's background to fit the adventure. Or use them as "face" cards and develop your own background, personality and other details from scratch.
- Portrait of an NPC on one side, generic D&D stats on the other side.
- Descriptions focus on each character's background and personality, with many story hooks.
- The cards are a deck of 55 cards (54 NPC cards and one cover/checklist card).
The cards focus on each character's background and personality. The few stats used (class, race, level, alignment, ability scores, armor class and hit points) are familiar to most game masters. The stats are easy to convert to another system in just a few minutes or even as a game is played.
Adventure hooks abound! Each character has interesting details that can lead to adventures or side-quests: Why did Quinn's love leave him? What plot did his brother Alvariaus nearly uncover? What trouble is the widow Fanny stirring? When will Styxie reveal her true mission? Is the mission Chono Vurrbilt assigns a death trap? Who can replace Sir Rafael as protector of his estate? Are the rumors of Sin Tram's deal with a fiend true? When will Li's plans to bring back her god occur?
Note: PDF download includes a zip of two files: One with each side of a card as its own 3.75"x2.75" page and another where the first four cards are on one 8.5"x11" page and the second is the backs of those cards (laid out so they can be printed front/back.) In either case, trim each card down to the standard 3.5"x2.5" card size--the extra is to allow for a "bleed". (Some extra artwork so if the front and back don't line up perfectly, the trimming still looks OK.)
