"My name is Elenore, well met! This is my sister, Greta." 

"Blessings of Selune be with you, I am Greta Hallwin. Please, let me take you to the Archmage!" 

" I am Archmage Tamrand. The moment you chit-chat, I'll call for the guards. What do you need?" 


Spice up those First Impressions: We DMs can sometimes fall into the trap of easy/lack luster greetings for our NPCs. I've said "well met" five times in a row before. I spent a while broadening my horizons and have copied down one-hundred of the greetings I use in the games I run and the stories I write - just to help you add some variety.

Thoughful Layout: I think that sticking with something familiar is easiest! This is akin to anything you'd find in the Player's Handbook or the Dungeon Master's Guide - an easy to read two-column list of 100+ greetings. 

Classics and Quirky, side-by-side: Many of the greetings in this list are commonplace, but mixed in with them are several that will leave a lasting impression on your players and PCs. Flirty, crass, confused, awkward, foreign, scared - there are a lot of options! 

Flesh out your NPCs with one roll: If you're like most DMs, you have a general idea of how an NPC might act, but the first conversation really sets the tone for who they are after that. Rolling on this chart can give you surprising results in-game! For instance, an NPC I considered to be a pruish fop before the introduction managed to roll the: "Speak Softly... I'd keep your words all to myself" dialouge! Suddenly I had a slightly-flirtatious noble that the party thought was endearing. 

Tips and Tricks to 'find your voice:' Reminders to get you into the groove of changing up your NPC voices, if you wish to try. Tips for finding otherwise foreign accents and greetings. Just the little tricks that help me mix things up even further every session!

As someone who has a hard time giving my NPCs anything distinctive to say, especially when creating impromptu ones on the fly, this is superbly useful and I highly recommend it! [...]

I have been DMing for nearly 22 years. I still get hung up sometimes on how to greet my players in game. I plan on using this suppliment to the fullest I can. Looking through it, it's got a lot of usibility. Take a few greetings, combine them/m [...]

As a DM who is better in writing than speaking, and certainly not an actor, this is incredibly useful. Up until this PDF my best greeting was something along the lines of "well met" ad nauseum -- or worse, "hey." I plan on mapping [...]

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.
