In Dungeons & Dragons, player characters are the protagonists of a campaign or adventure. They roam the world, explore dungeons, slay monsters, and interact with diverse characters. Driving them forward or instigating reactions from them are villains, the antagonists of the campaign or adventure. Most player characters are well-thought out and have interesting personalities. Their menacing mirrors should be the same.

Villain Backgrounds Volume I is a supplement for D&D 5e designed to help Dungeon Masters build compelling villains who are just as layered as the player characters. Like the backgrounds initially included in the Player’s Handbook, the heinous backgrounds found herein include in-depth descriptions of villain types, various inspiration tables, and example villains created with them. 

Whether you want to create an intriguing villain in a few minutes or spend an evening constructing the perfect foil to your party, you will find what you need inside this supplement for the world’s greatest roleplaying game.

The villain backgrounds in this volume are: the Boorish Thug, the Elder Entity, the Fallen Angel, the Mad Researcher, the Misguided Fool, and the Psychopath.

A very thorough guide for how to make an interesting, creative, and orginal villian! I loved that as a I read, I was able to connect preexisting villians from campaigns I'm in to the different backgrounds. The appendix was also very helpful since [...]

This is a great, little supplement and I'm excited to see what Volume II will have. The tables were inspiring and helped me easily build a villain, though I did notice that there were three "monsters" without stat blocks anywhere [...]

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.
