Because it’s a short week and you may not have as much time to prepare for your upcoming Pathfinder or d20 fantasy campaign, I’ve put Devious NPCs and Curious Creatures on sale for $1. It’ll stay this way until Monday next.

Lotsa ideas in this here book to help you out.

Devious NPCs and Curious Creatures is a document designed to give GMs interesting creatures and NPCs to mesh in to their ongoing Pathfinder games. The creatures and NPCs are designed for low- to mid-level campaigns.

These NPCs and creatures are a bit different from what one may normally encounter, and should give the PCs a chance to include some role-playing in to their encounters, rather than basic combat with the same old creatures and NPCs.
GMs are, of course, free to use these creatures and NPCs however they see fit, and should always remember that above all they and the players should be entertained and have a good time playing.

Included with every creature or NPC is at least one hook — an idea that can be used to make the PCs actively interested in an outcome further than simply slaying the beast or overcoming a singularly evil NPC.

These hooks can make the game that much more interesting by putting the PCs in a position where morals need to come in to play and the alignment of their characters should encourage active role-playing.

In addition to unique creatures and NPCs, you will also find several adventure seeds — ideas which can be dropped in to your current game, perhaps to germinate in to a reoccurring theme or simply for use as a one-off idea.

About Ben

I'm a geek. A nerd, a dweeb, whatever. Yes I owned garb, yes I still own medieval weaponry. And yeah, I could kick your butt in Mechwarrior the CCG. I love video games, role playing games, tactical board games and all forms of speculative fiction. I will never berate someone for wanting to be a Jedi and take everything Gary Gygax ever wrote as gospel. Well, all of this but that last bit.
