NPC Portraits Deck: Fantasy 2
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: How are the rebels planning to use Prinestia Sellae? Why does Tik Elleth constantly refer to Wizly? How is Princess Klestra planning to save her kingdom? What will Ohn do now that his mission is complete? Who is blackmailing Zelaym of Tynalria? How does Uralian plan to wipe out the Elven kingdom? Why is Travis known as the "oath breaker"?
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.)
