Ultimate NPCs: Skulduggery

Rated 5.00 out of 5 based on 8 customer ratings
(8 customer reviews)


Step into the tavern.

The rooms are warm (ish), and the rates are low (almost suspiciously so), just don’t ask what’s in the pies and don’t expect to have all your valuables come morning.

A tool for Games Masters and Players alike, Ultimate NPCs: Skulduggery is a collection of fully fleshed-out characters to populate your game world. Occupying the seedy tap-houses and
criminal underbelly of civilization, you’ll find a variety of thieves, assassins and mercenaries within, each with the backstory and statistics necessary to run as an NPC or player character.

So pull up a stool, try the ale (don’t mind the lumps), and meet the regulars…

    Awesome! Pretty much sums this bad boy up!! Ready to drop, fully developed NPC with a name and that can follow along your campaign arc as antagonists, minions, or allies are pretty rare unless you do them yourself – and as the DM who really has time for that level of detail?? I have already recommended this to my local game shop in Colorado Springs (got my hardcopy last night and showed it to Ed about an hour later) and already have plans for one of the evil NPC to thwart my players’ plans in Barovia this weekend! Get this resource!!

    I can’t wait for the next book in the series! As a GM, working 40 hours with a toddler to boot this book is a no brainer. The variety is just right the characters are engaging and the art top notch. I’ve had the book less than a week and I’ve already used it half a dozen times. Great job guys.

    This Kickstarter project was a joy to watch from development through to delivery. From watching the YouTube conference calls to participating in the editing, I had high hopes for this product and the team delivered in spades.

    I now have a ready to run resource at my disposal for my campaign. I was struggling with creating a Thieves Guild for the start of my storyline. Ultimate Skulduggery put that to rest. I can even now “grow” one of my villains from 1st to 4th to 8th level and have art to boot for my PCs so they can better visualize their nemesis.

    I cannot emphasize enough that this product is handy, rich in content and ready for action from the moment it hits your hands. Enjoy! I am.

    Time. Time is my enemy. I never have enough of it. Especially when it comes to game prepping. I am a husband, a father, a professional in a career, and then a DM. My game prep time is precious and having resources like Ultimate NPC’s: Skulduggery is an absolute necessity. The quality of the book, the NPCs, their rich and detailed histories, and their accompanying artwork not only makes for an amazing resource but must have for any RPG collection.

  6. Rated 5 out of 5


    The characters in this collection are extremely well thought out. In addition to just general stats, all of the characters goals/flaws/ideals/bonds are fully fleshed out. Additionally, there are backstories provided for the motivations of every NPC.

    As if that wasn’t enough, there are also connections written in between the NPCs if you want to include all or some of them.

    It is very easy to create an entire city structured around the NPCs in this book that can be encountered by the PCs at any time because of the inclusion of stats for multiple NPC levels.

    Used this and it ended up creating a great twist in my campaign and helped me flesh out my city with an underground not previous planned. Love the content.

  8. Rated 5 out of 5


    This is really something I’ve needed for a while. Well built NPC ready to drop in to any situation. Always makes planning a lot easier for a GM when you don’t have to create every minor NPC you may need stats for.

    With my players you never know if they’ll just talk, fight or well something a bit more unpredictable. This allows me to keep a few surprises in store just in case.
