Retired Adventurers

25 Unforgettable Retired Adventurer NPCs

With several coastal themed adventurers, this supplement is perfect for DMs looking to spice up their Saltmarsh campaign.

One cannot drink from an empty cup. As a dungeon master, your players rely on you to be constantly refilling their characters' creative cups with your own. You take on the responsibility of creating an endless stream of memorable, approachable character.  With Retired Adventurers we take some of that burden away. Meet 25 fully realized former adventurers, each with a story behind why they started, and why the stopped adventuring. Including character stats, quest hooks, and magical items for each of these former heroes (and a few villains), this supplement contains everything you need to bring to life a tavern, a city, or even a full campaign.

25 Heroes and Villains: 

Built with fully realized backgrounds, stories, personalities, and roleplaying advice. These retired adventurers are out-of-the-box ready into any campaign setting. With their own wishes and histories, these NPCs can be friendly quest givers, smoldering rivals, or kindly mentors to any party. 

25 Magical ItemsEach adventurer comes complete with a magical item gained from their adventuring days:

-- Tome of Boccob: A powerful focus for the discering cleric, Coralspike:  a magical javelin for holding enemies in place, Drunken Noodle Wraps: weapon or libation? You decide.

25 Quest Hooks

Each character comes with a built in quest hook tying their backstory to your world. Fight in arenas, rescue old adventuring comrades, punish old rivals, and try not to get sucked into the oblivion by Elrick's Tentacle

It looks like some of the text is cut off in the sample. Is that true to the full version, as well?

Hi David. I'm actually not seeing the cut off you're referring to. Can you tell me where you see it so I can confirm the product file doesn't cut off the same text.

David, I can confirm that no, it is NOT in the final document.

Was this meant to go up in price to £7.41 from £3.91?

Hi, Callum. No it was not. There was a bit of an issue with the DM's Day sale and some products experienced an increase in price, unfortunately. As I understand, it's getting fixed.

The price should be fixed and set at $4.49 soon.

We ar very sorry for the confuision and inconvenience.

Rules Edition(s)
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.
