    Post GM Tool: Fantasy NPC Cards

    Howdy there!
    Just wanted to share something with my fellow Game Masters. If you like using NPC Cards/illustrations in your game, you might like my set of 140+ illlustrated characters.



    I've tried to be as varied as possible, to hit all the big archetypes. You can check out the full gallery on my Facebook page here!

    Feel free to download the images for personal use. You can also get them all at once on my DeviantArt page: click this link and then the DOWNLOAD button in the upper right corner.

    Also, let me know if you think I've skipped on some types of characters. If I like your idea, I just might add your character to the collection! (yes, I might illustrate one, free of charge)

    Let me know by leaving a note (and the character description) here or on the Facebook page.

    Thank you very much for this, DemiGorgon. It's always nice to find a source of good art for games. I use pictures all the time to help illustrate the people, places, and things I choose to put in my games.

    And if the half-orc you posted is any indication, then there should be plenty of great NPC pics to use. And, of course, it doesn't get any better than free!

    Eventhough I rarely play fantasy games where this thing will be useful, this is pretty good. If I ever be in a fantasy game I hope I can use this.

    Important NPCs get unique portraits! Generic NPCs get equally generic portraits! Just like the video games!

    Until your players derail everything, that is...

    Not sure what you mean. 140+ portraits is a lot of NPCs. I've run a campaign for months now and only used about 10 portraits - the king, several nobles, the sheriff... Very Important People, all of them. No matter how derailed the campaign gets, the king stays the king. :)

    Anyway, I'm glad you like these, but I still await some suggestions for portraits-to-come. :)

    Perhaps some that are more cleric/priest in design?

    Likewise, some additional real-world cultures were touched upon, but I would like to see some more - things like Oriental, Arabian, Egyptian, Celtic, Viking, Germanic, Mongolian, etc.

    Hmm, I'll take it into consideration. I just might make a few culture-specific series. :)
