Hire on some help! Draw a handful of contractors for hire: guards, porters, guides, scholars, and more.

Each system-neutral card has a portrait on the front. The back lists primary and secondary roles, inspiring you with more ways to use them in your adventures. Quirks and quotes help to quickly get into character and make each memorable. Every NPC also has a personality, background, extra value, and flaw to keep them interesting. These cards feature an inclusive range of ethnicities and fantasy races.

  • Portrait of an NPC on one side, the other side has the character's background and personality, with many story hooks.
  • The deck has 54 cards (51 NPC cards, two cards about running henchmen/hirelings, and one cover card).

Note: PDF download includes a zip of three files: One with each side of a card as its own 3.75"x2.75" page, a second which is a form-fillable version of the first, and a third file 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.)
