NPC Builder


Part of designing NPCs is making them combat-ready.  This version of the character creation process doesn’t rely on classes or a spell slot progression, which can be cumbersome for the DMs, both in creation and managing NPCs.  This provides NPCs with a unique set of skills that are easy for the DM to manage and will make combat less predictable for players.


The idea was inspired by a time when I would create star players for my team in the Blood Bowl Board Game.  Discovering their abilities was one of the best things about the game, and it was always easy to keep track of them.


The NPC Builder provides:

  • 6 Stages process for creating your NPCs
  • More than 80 unique abilities and magical items assembled from the D&D manuals
  • A tiered Levels system, allowing the user to choose which abilities to put more levels into
  • The Challenge Rating rules in one place
  • An NPC Builder Character Sheet (with links to free fillable e-copies of the sheet)

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.
