I didn't know what to expect with this at first, really... Man, do I enjoy being pleasantly surprised!
The NPCs are well written and created in such a way that they can be dropped into any campaign albeit with some slight modification maybe (as in my case...I'm always tweeking with things, heheh).
I wouldn't say that this product is absolutely essential for a DM, but for me it makes some nice extra material and saves me a great deal of time.
I believe that the Non Players Compendium will appeal especially to new DMs and overworked Dms... and for 3 bucks, its a steal.
I look forward to Volume Two :)
