Now with even more Villains and Lairs!

Expand your game with this collection of 56 NPCs of various Challenge Ratings, thirteen of which include maps and details of their lairs. Add these NPCs as a side-quest, a main villain, a one-shot, a bounty for easy money, or however else you wish. 

Written by some of the best-selling authors on the Dungeon Masters Guild and outstanding podcasters, each NPC includes an image, a backstory, motives, flaws, and a stat block. Some even include new magic items!

Several of the NPCs (Angel, Aurelia Sing, Barabbas Abernathy, Brondike Deepdelver, Cephelosk, Dargin Graypaw, Fur'Gudlu, Gundigoot Garrick, Lady Yana, Metathraxicus Shade, Rhaghulit the Visionary, The Silent Symphony, Snuggles, Velen 'Viper' Raddlemark, and Zerakkis) even have connections to Waterdeep! Check out the preview to see how we added the connection.

Bonus Objective: COMPLETED! The expansion has been posted!

Any chance to get the few maps as a separate file (for example Zerakkis has a dungeon that I want to throw at my players)?
Would be golden for us VTT GMs.

Added a zip file that includes most of the maps. There are a few by Dyson that I can't upload, but you can find them in his map packs on DriveThruRPG.

Thanks a lot in advance!
Somehow I can't see the zip file in there, but I imagine it must be coming through :-)

Adrian,

If you haven’t already seen the updates, could you check now? The issue seems to be corrected.

Browsing through the sample I noticed on page 18 Alyndra Valcyne. She has three attacks, one with her dagger and two with her rapier. But she is also wielding a shield so that shouldn’t be possible.

Otherwise this seems like a great resource. Looking forward to purchasing and using it.

Hi Jeff, I'm not seeing the expanded edition, I only see version 1 and the print friendly version. I tried downloading it again, but only received the same book as before...

I’ve sent an email to customer service to see if there’s an issue. I uploaded Ver 2.1 today (minor layout fixes), and I can see that version in the preview.

Ok, it's on the site now. I downloaded it and the new NPCs and lairs look so cool, I can't wait to really dig into them. Thanks Jeff, and the rest of the creators!

Page 76 (Joy and Silence & Lull statblocks) has a copy/paste error. The second stablock is a dupe of the first.

Thank you for pointing this out. I removed the stat block for Silence & Lull as it wasn't needed.

I originally priced this supplement with a Special Holiday price of $9.95, and intended to increase that price after the Thanksgiving / Black Friday Sales. Due to its outstanding success, my costs are now covered, and I am going to leave the price at $9.95 for the time being. Thanks for the overwhelming support of this product!

205 sales in just 7 days! Thank you!

Getting closer to unlocking the Bonus Objective. Your purchase could be the one to add 2 more lairs and 6 more NPCs!

Format
Original electronic
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.
