Selected Option:

Watermarked PDF + Hardcover, Standard Color Book

More than 110 villains, henchmen, magical artifacts, and Quests ready to use in any Pathfinder or 5E campaign setting, supporting any challenge level.

Instantly-usable Villains, dozens more Henchmen, supporting NPCs, maps, Quests, and more.

If you're a DM/GM, this book will save you time and enhance your gaming sessions.  If you're a player, this book will give you inspiration, particularly for villainous PCs. If you're just a hobbyist, or a writer, this book might give you inspiration for storytelling.

Each villain is a ready-to-play, novel-caliber NPC with background, motivation, description, and more.  Lairs, hideouts, and other full-color maps round out each villain as its own full-featured chapter.

Enough rich content to fuel dozens, perhaps over a hundred, gaming sessions, immediately usable at your fingertips!

By the numbers:

  • >450 complete statblocks.
  • 43 Villains.
  • 68 Henchmen, Followers, & Retainers.
  • >40 Quests.
  • >200 Rumors & Lore associated with the Villain's nefarious acts.

Each villain is a full-featured character you can drop into your gaming sessions immediately, with zero additional preparation.  

The content provided for each and every villain should support 1-3 dedicated play sessions... so the book itself should support 30-100+ gaming sessions!

Each villain is a 10-50 page chapter unto themselves, and has all of the following: 

  • Complete statblocks, including Quadded Statblocks to support a wide variety of difficulty levels.
  • Background, motivation, appearance, combat behavior, and other "non-crunchy" character description.
  • 0-4 Henchmen, each with full Quadded Statblocks.
  • 1+ Quests dedicated to the Villain and/or her henchpeople.
  • Hooks to use to provide motivation or to get the PCs engaged.
  • Rumors & Lore to fuel character interest, give the Villain a real-world feel, and provide further hooks / incentives for engaging.



    This adventure incorporates several innovative and creative tools your gaming group can use to use the content for a party of any size, and any level.  These approaches also enable a great deal of flexibility in portraying richly-detailed NPCs, and tracking interactions with them.

    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.
