"A Cast of Thousands is easily the most valuable thing I have for Arrowflight besides the rulebook" - Achim Leidig

A Cast of Thousands is the indispensable product for Arrowflight gamesmaster and player alike! A Cast of Thousands is an NPC resource tool containing ready made characters around which exciting adventures can be built, dozens of stat blocks for everyday folk encountered during an adventure as well as new rules for use for characters of all types!

Although designed for use with Arrowflight, A Cast of Thousands can easily be converted for use in any fantasy campaign.

A Cast of Thousands contains:

  • Thirty unique characters complete with detailed background, personality and plot hooks to help out a gamesmaster looking for some inspiration - including the bandit queen Roselynn Blackhood, the fearsome Exhortiad fanatic Master Greymantle and brave warrior-poet Acacius Alexius.
  • Fourteen new occupation templates to speed up character creation - including the Bounty Hunter, the Knight Errant and the Scholastic Mage.
  • Over thirty-five everyday NPCs, only briefly described but comprehensively statted, for use at the drop of a hat.
  • A host of new rules, including new spells such as Divine Power and Protective Skin, rules for masterworked and heirloom weaponry and a new ranged combat style, the Way of the Bow.
  • A selection of GM tools such as NPC sheets and wound trackers for your many baddies.
  • 88 pages of pure content for your games.
  • Lavishly illustrated by Arrowflight artist, Steven Hartley.

"All of the NPCs in here are top notch and you can design entire adventures around them that are bound to be memorable. This is easily worth the small price in the amount of frustration that it saves alone!" - James Stubbs

"A Cast of Thousands is a MUST HAVE! If you buy one supplement for Arrowflight it's this one!" - Jeremy Smith

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.
