Create, Manage, Run & ROLEPLAY
The Best NPCs in Your GMing Career

If You Struggle With NPCs, My Book GM Mastery: NPC Essentials Will Give You Everything You Need to Become an NPC Master

NPC Essentials is a huge collection of tips, techniques, and aids that will inject life and detail into your NPCs. This comprehensive book is filled with step-by-step advice on designing, roleplaying, and managing NPCs during the entire lifetime of your campaigns.

Also included are NPC archetypes, encounters, random generation charts and tables, NPC character sheets, and an example NPC-centric adventure (d20, fantasy).

This book contains advice I've never seen anywhere else.

For example, power bases. Where does your NPC derive his strength from? How does this affect his personality, ambitions, and behaviour? Power bases are perfect for designing complete and realistic villains to plague your players while entertaining them at the same time.

I've also included and condensed a lot of the advice published in the Roleplaying Tips e-zine over the years as well. This makes NPC essentials your one-stop shop for NPC tips and tutorials.

This product is far and away one of the best purchases I have made on RPGNOW. I have commented on a number of quality documents and supplements, but none compare to this with regard to value and usefulness. NPC Essentials guides the reader through a number of different NPC creation methods and gives them a lot to think about! Well done. I make it a policy to never give anything I review five stars, unless I believe that it is perfect. This document is perfect.

"The text has depth - it looks very hard at organizing NPCs and giving them a living role in your campaign. Its not your usual gaming fluff written by second-rate writers for munchkin players; this is a serious and practical look at creating, using, and managing NPCs. The points may be familiar to those who have experienced training in acting, but but to me, it was one of the best supps I've gotten in 25+ years of gaming."

My Critical Fumble Guarantee

I am proud of my work and I stand behind it 100%. I also know it's risky buying books online, because you can't stand in a store, hold a book in your hand, and flip through it.

So I'll take all the risk from you and put it onto me with a money-back guarantee. (I wish more online RPG book sellers offered this when I'm buying.)

You have a full 60 days to try GM Mastery: NPC Essentials. When you purchase from my secure, https, encrypted shopping cart, you will be able to download your book immediately.

And if you don't like it - if I roll a 1 for you - just ask for your money back. Email me anytime to get a refund. No hassles, no questions, I will simply give you your money back.

If you'd care to share how I rolled a critical miss so I can improve my book, that would be wonderful. But that's totally optional.
