NPC For Hire is a story driven aid for GMs that allows you to generate, build, and manage NPCs paired with beautiful hand drawn sketches. GMs will be able to spin up a story that is not only compelling, but will immerse players in a fantasy world without extensive preparation.

NPC For Hire has 217 beautiful character portraits that you can use in your campaigns. This is the breakdown of the character portraits:

- 58 human sketches
- 28 elf sketches
- 24 dwarf sketches
- 21 monster sketches
- 19 villain sketches
- 14 halfling sketches
- 14 half demon sketches
- 12 hero sketches
- 7 half elf sketches
- 6 gnome sketches
- 5 fey sketches
- 4 dragon folk sketches
- 4 half orc sketches
- 1 half giant sketch

Each character has an attitude, unique bio, and interesting feats and flaws. The bio gives a brief description of the NPC's background. Feats and flaws help GMs quickly come up with story telling points and direction on how best the character can be played. Items are also generated for each character so the pickpocket of the group always has opportunity to find something interesting.

Worth every penny

I am working on a new campaign and I can already tell this will be a crucial tool for me. There’s already so much here to use. If the dev keeps supporting this it will be one of the most useful rpg tools for ipad.
The only feature I would love to see added is the ability to use my own artwork or saved images to custom npc’s. This would ensure zero overlap in pictures. Still, you couldn’t buy this much quality artwork anywhere for $5, and with the added features its beyond a must have. Great work devs!

Fantastic GM companion app!

NPC for Hire is a great app! Not only keeps my NPCs organized but the random traits/items have helped to further develop their back stories. The sketches are all beautifully done, and I hope they continue to support the app and add more! Would definitely recommend.
