Compendium of Commoners


In a world of magic and mystery, campaigns tend to
focus on the fantastic elements of the various worlds
found in Dungeons and Dragons lore. What is often left
out, however, is the common people. The ones that
players interact with within every village, town, and city. As
these background NPCs become inevitably important
from time to time, it is helpful to have some stats and
general abilities of common faces across town. the
Compendium of Commoners seeks to help address this
need and provide you with 10 pages of ready-to-use stat
blocks for various commoners.

Hello Arcanum Oaks, just wanted to say great job on these stats. I'm definitely using them. I still can't get the image of the drunk using its Throw Up trait, ha! Any chance that you will be creating another set? I would like to see your interpretation for an herbalist, forager, hedge wizard, and sex worker/escort.

I appreciate the feedback! I definitely want to make more. I'm doing this on the side and currently working on another project, but I will look into these suggestions! I will let you know full disclosure that I don't have sexually explicit content/scenes at my table and a sex worker isn't something I'm willing to make. Otherwise, I'm open to looking into some of these and more options! I think it is an area where there is currently a hole in content that I would love to fill!

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.
