Adaptable NPCs: Calamity


Dungeon Masters, immerse players in your post-apocalyptic worlds by bringing your non-player characters to life!

The next product in the Adaptable NPCs line, Adaptable NPCs: Calamity contains 41 NPCs with unique statblocks, custom art, and amazingly written lore! They have been crafted with the intention of populating your post-apocalyptic setting, but many would feel right at home in your magitech, technomancy, high-fantasy, or similar worlds. 

Additionally, 5 short adventures have been included. These adventures have been created for Dungeon Masters to introduce their players to some of the Adaptable NPCs with minimal preparation. Each adventure has high-resolution printable battle maps created by Justin Andrew Mason (DM & Player versions are included), an adventure background, a recommend party level, and room descriptions with encounters (both combat and roleplaying) utilizing NPCs from this supplement and the 5e monster manual. Note: The maps have been included as an additional download in a separate .zip file.





The Greasemonkey's Handbook Variant Rules

Many of the non-player characters you will find in Adaptable NPCs: Calamity have also been given variant rules, allowing them to easily be used with the Greasemonkey Handbook! Feel free to populate your steampunk worlds with easy-to-use additions!

Would it be possible to include an index of NPCs included by CR on the store listing? It's hard for me to assess how useful this is to a campaign that's in a specific level range if I don't know how many of the 41 NPCs are CR5+, CR 10+, CR14+, etc.

I guess this sort of goes generally for the Adaptable NPCs lineup.

Hi Samuel,
Apparently the previews have been acting up on the DMsGuild site-wide. I've refreshed the preview in the hopes of fixing it. In the meantime, I've taken a screenshot of the CR for the NPCs contained within, which you can view by copying this URL and pasting it into your browser:

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.
