100 NPCs for your fantasy roleplaying game

NPCs are a big part of any tabletop roleplaying game. Whether they are just passing characters with directions to the nearest town or long-standing background characters that your players have grown to love, every interaction adds something to the game. Having interesting and exciting NPCs can make the difference between a good game and a great game. For that reason we’ve put together the following list of 100 NPCs for you to use in your next fantasy adventure.   Need a random encounter? Why not just roll a D100 and see who you meet.   1. A ‘reformed’ evil genius 2. Someone who believes ‘everything can be improved with magic’ 3. A PC’s sibling 4. A local historian who is overly keen for some ‘history’ to happen in their lifetime 5. Someone who has lost everything and is furious with the world 6. A teenager in love 7. A monarch who has lost their kingdom 8. A child that wants to grow up to be part of the PCs party 9. The world’s best forger 10. A dancer by day, an assassin by night 11. A terrib

Random 5 Room Dungeon Generator

I had meant to do this for the August RPG Blog Carnival but missed it due to real-life problems.  However the idea stuck in my head so now it's here, hope you enjoy.Image (cc) miszlaThis generator uses the 5 Room Dungeon model, which I always think works better as themes/areas than explicit rooms so the results are designed as hooks and inspiration so it fits better into your campaign.  As always, roll a set of polyhedral dice or use the JavaScript roller at the bottom of the post...The d20 - The entrance:is up (or down) a sheer cliff.has become the lair of a beast.is hidden by thorny undergrowth.has soldiers camped outside.has sunk underwater.is guarded by a magical construct.was magically sealed.is guarded by an intelligent undead.has collapsed, is there an alternative?is haunted by vengeful spirits.requires a lost key (or keys) to open.is guarded by the local militia.is not located where the maps say it is.has been infested with giant vermin.can only be accessed using magic.is the home of an elem

Battle of Farelis: Origins and Gencon

Last week I posted how I really advanced my work on the Gencon special by talking with my GMing team. Well, not only have I been able to make a lot of good work on that adventure, but by advancing the final part, the first part - which will premiere at Origins. Has also cleared up from my writer's block. All because the second part took shape! Now Part 1 of the Battle of Farelis is an adventure with a lot of story. There is much plot to be extirpated from it. Many significant NPCs with goals... As this is the first of the Saggakar Year Four adventure, I had to advance the story from last year's. With all my work on Akhamet and Rhym, I barely did any work on Saggakar in a year! It really was like reuniting with the old gang as the story and the plot I have been working towards for the first three years are now ready to come to fruition and the situation ready to explode! I am really pumped with this as I have been blasting encounters after encounters with like a million mini encounters in-between. This means

[Review] Perilous Nights in Eckwold for 5e

I happened on one of the DM's Guild Facebook Groups on a new author wanting to get some critique about his adventure. Jos-W put out an adventure called Perilous Nights in Eckwold by Dicey Games. He was asking for feedback on the adventure... and what better way to do so than to review it! So let's get to it, shall we? 1- Overall. The first thing I noticed about it is that the pdf is dry and without art (except for a set of maps at this end, an overall map with the distance of the main events would REALLY help). This felt like an Adventure League product in appearance. I will rate this as "okay", so 2/5. 2- Editing. I noticed a few issues here and there, nothing really jumped out at me. The issues were less with the English and more with the D&D terminology, like skill names having the wrong casing, magic items and spells not being italicized and capitalized. Okay. Okay, I'm an old and grumpy guy who focuses too much on these things. None of the issue prevented me from understanding, so I'll give it a 4/
