Hold Em NPC Generator: Modern Character

Watermarked PDF

Following on from the Hold 'Em Scene Generator launched in 2010, this book is designed to help quickly create a range of interesting and special NPCs for virtually any modern setting.

With a quick hand of Texas Hold 'Em (a three card flop, a turn and a river) thousands of different NPC templates can be generated quickly, and through some quick thinking from players or GM, these templates can be turned into memorable characters with twists that you might never have considered if you had to do all the hard thinking for yourself.

This book even provides two optional variants for the final "river" card, one providing characters that are lighter and possibly more comedic in nature, and other providing characters that are darker, more dramatic, and certainly more tragic in nature.  

At 64 pages, there may seem to be a lot of detail for a simple NPC generator, but hidden within the process are hundreds of quetions to help flesh out these characters and dozens of ways to integrate them into a modern campaign setting through influences and ablities to manipulate events behind the scenes while the protagonist characters are taking care of business.

While this product is generally system agnostic, it is closely linked to a number of upcoming game products from Vulpinoid Studios.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
