Creating memorable NPCs can be a difficult task; creating marginally interesting NPCs in-the-moment can be even more challenging. The Non-Player Cards Project is more than a gamer tool, it’s an inspiration tool, full of great art and writing suitable for any setting and system.

10497008_1496877453878701_4805837769474898125_o

cards7Consisting of 300 cards, the deck is broken out into 8 categories, allowing you to create almost 50 trillion unique character combinations. What’s even better is that, the project offers more than just cards. If you prefer just the text, the project offers a Reference Booklet. And, if you prefer art, you can get the KS exclusive Art Book (or even the Deluxe Art book).

The project is around for only a few more days. So, if you need an inspiration tool that will help create a personable character or help spicing up an existing NPC, this tool is for you.

Jump in on the action before July 30th:

Fragged Empire – is now on Kickstarter, funded within 12 hours!


Fragged Empire – is now on Kickstarter, funded within 12 hours!

“Betrayed by your creators, you are a genetically engineered remnant, emerging from the ruin of genocidal war…” sets the scene as players emerge from 100 years of brutal tribalism & savagery after a terrible war and are just now returning to space.

Fragged_Empire_Facebook_v4 (1)Fragged Empire follows four non-human races as they seek to build a new society after barely surviving a genocidal war. As an example one of the playable races (the “Nephilim”) are the descendants of the genetically engineered army that all but wiped out civilisation. 

Wade Dyer has been working on Fragged Empire for the last four years with the goal of creating a stylish and exciting sci-fi tabletop game with his excellent eye for design. “I really want the art in my book to show 2 things. Firstly, it needs to convey the tone of the setting; beautiful, modern, detailed, subtle depth, but vibrant & fun. That mix of energy & grit. Secondly, it needs to convey the passionate craftsmanship that has gone into this book.” – Wade
