Dice Roll Denizens — Instant NPCs for DND & Pathfinder
Dice Roll Denizens is a collection of prompts that let you create over 100 detailed fantasy NPCs in minutes - all by rolling the dice!
This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Fri, February 8 2019 5:11 PM UTC +00:00.
Have you ever just needed a character?
Nobody heroic, nobody integral to the overarching campaign, nobody designed for the trials and tribulations of your world; just a simple non-player character. The art of creating NPCs for a campaign can sometimes draw a fine line between inspiration and tedium - for every amazing pivotal character you create, there will be half a dozen non-memorable characters, simply thrown together on spot... (Err... what was that guard's name again?)
Well - no more!
Enter: Dice Roll Denizens!
Dice Roll Denizens is a collection of 100 unique non-player characters, designed to work with D&D, Pathfinder, or any other fantasy-based RPG! Dice Roll Denizens turns character creation into a simple and fun game of dice, with the result being a fully fleshed-out character, created in an instant! Gone are the days of fumbling for names or minute details when your players ask about the lone NPC at the tavern; with Dice Roll Denizens, your new characters are just a simple dice roll away.
You start by gathering your collection of dice and rolling 1d100! That initial roll will give you your CHARACTER, corresponding to what you rolled. From there, you flip to the page of the book that coincides with your result, and you will be given a basic overview of the character's appearance, demeanour, and more. After that, you will be prompted to roll for your new character's BACKSTORY, RELATIONSHIPS, and IDEALS. And, of course, each new character will have some ADVENTURE HOOKS on hand, to divulge a variety of small personal quests to your players.
Dice Roll Denizens makes the act of character generation into a fun and simple game of dice. The process can be as detailed as reading every single possible character trait, or simply rolling every required dice all at once and instantly having a completed NPC, ready for your world. It really is that simple!
The Kickstarter campaign is simple: You back this project (either the normal or earlybird tier), and you get the entire thing! On top of that, you may also opt to back a tier that includes Dice Roll Dungeons as well -- in which you will receive your PDF copy of Dice Roll Dungeons as soon as this campaign ends.
Risks and challenges
Our previous project, Dice Roll Dungeons, had a few issues that caused a late delivery of the project. However, we learned a lot with Dice Roll Dungeons and we're confident that Dice Roll Denizens will meet its delivery date of August 2019 without issues.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
