Need a quick NPC? This collection of business-card-sized NPCs provides a quick reference for on-the-spot characters.

Each mini-page is designed to give you everything you need to start interacting with the party straight away, while giving flexibility to expand on their backstory later if needed.

Breakdown of the NPC Details:

Intensity: A rough indication of how intense the character is. They are ordered from lowest to highest so you can pick out a card from an appropriate point in the pack depending on whether it's a humble shopkeeper or a flamboyant fey!

Voice: Quick and simple voice directions indicating, pace, pitch, timbre and a suggestion for vocal mannerisms (thanks to u/samazingjedi from reddit for these).

Mannerism: A simple, distinctive mannerism, crowdsourced from the r/d100 subreddit.

Emotion table: Based on an emotion wheel, this provides a quick reference for how the NPC expresses certain feelings. For those of us who often default to a certain type, this gives an easy prompt to varied characterizations. How does an NPC express fear? Are they anxious, helpless, hysterical? They're angry with the party. Are they hostile, frustrated, resentful, jealous?

This quick table gives a quick reference for randomly chosen attributes to keep your characters fresh in a way that doesn't interrupt the flow of the session. It also provides prompts for roleplaying. Why is their sadness guilty or powerless? What's the story behind this?

The traits in the emotion table determine the characters intensity. Characters who express surprise as being perplexed are lower on the intensity scale than characters who express surprise as awestruck, for instance. This means you can make a quick selection whether you're going for a middle-of-the-road NPC or a bombastic new character.

The file is 16 pages of 9 NPCs in a business-card size. Print and cut up or use as-is!

The current version has "Gruff voice" for every NPC.
Please include the published date in yyyy-mm-dd format or the version number on every page.

Thanks for this collection - just the right amount of info for a quick NPC list.

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.
