Adaptable NPCs of the Guild



Enrich the adventures you tell with new non-player characters to guide your players across Faerûn!

Adaptable NPCs of the Guild is a DMs Guild community project that introduces you to detailed non-player characters to use at your table. Quest givers, travelling companions, minor henchmen, or campaign ending foes await to engage your players and inspire your campaigns.

Written by 18 of the Guild's most talented and exciting creators, this book provides you with NPCs to populate your worlds! From the Retired Red Wizard of Thay to the Chosen Disciples of Tiamat, these NPCs will fit perfectly into your official campaign settings or homebrew worlds alike!

Additionally, a completely original 12-page adventure has been included that can be run standalone or dropped into an official campaign setting using one of the many included story hooks.

Inside the book you will find:

  • 63 Incredible Adaptable NPCs, including the Baelnorn Lich, the Flameblade Magus, and the Red Witch

  • 13 Variant NPCs, such as Chosen of BhaalRadiant Sunwitch, and the Wayfarer Beast Trainer

  • 11 magic items, like the Court Mage's Shawl, the Herbal Energy Mushroom, and the Commander's Hope

  • A 12-page adventure, including printable DM & Player battle maps and tokens for every ANPC



"Wonderfully realized characters and stunning art... this book deserves a place on every shelf!" - M.T. Black, Guild Adept

"Absolutely stunning artwork compliments an incredibly talented design team in this extensive NPC supplement, and honestly, I don't even know where to begin! There is so much content in this book it's well worth the price. Give it a read. You won't be disappointed. 5 stars for sure!" - Vall does DnD, Monster Hunts series creator

"Honestly, this could just be an art book and be worth more than the price of admission! But the NPCs themselves are what you come for and they turn up with absolute hordes of flavour and utility." - Curse of Sebs, Reviewer Extraordinaire

"Beautiful artwork, fabulous layout, and imaginative NPC's for every DM to use at their table! Grim Press does it again with another stellar product!" - Anthony Joyce, Adventures League content creator

Astute eye! While it is just a standard 'adventuring party' being lead through a forest by an Adaptable NPCs in this instance, the CR group served as the picture's inspiration.

If you check out Tomasz Chistowski's portfolio on Artstation, you will also see an absolutely amazing piece he made of Grog (which does not appear in this book).

Any chance this becomes a POD in the future?

Unfortunately, only the powers that be in the DMsGuild can answer that (they have changed their submission process to invite only). If you would like to see any titles made available for PoD (including this one), I would recommend reaching out to customer support to voice your interest.

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.
