Paizo Publishing®, leading publisher of award-winning fantasy roleplaying games and novels, announces the release of NPC Codex for the Pathfinder ® Roleplaying Game (RPG), in-stores now!
NPC Codex is a 320-page, hardcover, must-have rules reference for the Pathfinder RPG. It contains more than 250 fully detailed non-player characters (NPCs) ready for instant insertion into your Pathfinder campaign. With full statistics and tactics for characters of every level of every class in the Core Rulebook, NPC Codex speeds prep time and adds new dimension to your campaign.
NPC Codex also provides dozen of commoners, warriors, and the like, scores of ready-to-use prestige-class characters, and a look at the iconic characters of the Pathfinder RPG with statistics at various levels of development, providing pre-generated player characters for any occasion. Gorgeous illustrations by Paizo’s finest artists appear on nearly every page of this beautiful volume.
"This is the first time an RPG company has attempted a book of ready-to-use NPCs at this magnitude," says Erik Mona, Publisher. "The overall approach is similar to a Pathfinder RPG Bestiary, with complete stat blocks and tons of full-color illustrations. The focus here is on utility, and I'm pleased to say I've already used the NPC Codex in my own Pathfinder campaigns and found it to cut prep-time and speed up play. Pathfinder fans are going to love the NPC Codex. For sheer in-game utility, it can't be beat!"
The Pathfinder RPG is currently the world’s best-selling fantasy roleplaying game. It builds on more than 10 years of system development and the largest open playtest in the history of tabletop gaming to create an unparalleled fantasy roleplaying experience. Players need only the Pathfinder Core Rulebook play, but Paizo Publishing produces a wide range of books and accessories to enhance your Pathfinder experience, from rules compendiums to complete campaigns to packets of beautiful full-color maps.
