Simple mercenaries to bolster combat for low-level groups.

Afatasi's 5e Factions is a deck of 90 blades for hire. Whether they are Freelance or belong to a lesser known splinter faction, they will keep your PC safe - or die trying.

A5eFacts is a deck of mercenaries that require a daily cost of GP to serve your PC. My goal was to use them to bolster combat situations up to about level 6, but to not leave a large footprint in players' circumstances or engagement. I've attempted to achieve this by:

• Using their daily cost to cover their upkeep needs, such as food and supplies for traveling (optional).

• Having them take their action before or after the PC who employs them, rather than each one of them rolling Initiative.

• Giving them "moves" that function as abbreviated versions of appropriate actions. Things that your PC can simply command them to perform on the spot.

• Abbreviating the growth of their class - so as not discount their growth, but to abbreviate it in a way that promotes fluid comprehension and functionality from one who commands them.

• Showing only their proficient skills and keeping their personality or narrative primarily open-ended to fit into any campaign setting.

The hirelings will be represented at three separate stages of skill:

• 1-star = level 1

• 2-star = level 3

• 3-star = level 6

Whether they're encouraged to reach these heights of their skill through gold or combat, is up to you and your DM. Enjoy their services your way.

Orange Name Color - Everwatch Vigil: Mostly ex-guards, but no less devout as any other followers of Helm - as benevolent and righteous as they come. These mercenaries are ideal for good-aligned employers.

Teal Name Color - Eye of Sapphire: Emerald Enclave is from one of the two islands referred to as the "Eyes of Sylvanas". The other island is called Wavecrest - that's where the Eye of Sapphire faction originates. These mercenaries are ideal for neutral-aligned employers.

Purple Name Color - The Void Network: A splinter faction of the Zhentarim (AKA The Black Network). Shortly after their Manshoon clone leader was slain by another Manshoon clone, they've turned to paid work. These mercenaries are ideal for evil-aligned employers.

The zip file contains all images! Any additions to this product will be included with the zip file at no additional cost.

The print copy contains all 30 hirelings at three levels each, totaling at 90 cards. The additional OGL included brings the total count up to 92 cards.

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.
