About Icon


NPC For Hire is a story driven aid for GMs that allows you to generate, build, and manage NPCs paired with beautiful hand drawn portraits. GMs will be able to spin up a story that is not only compelling, but will immerse players in a fantasy world with ease.

NPC For Hire includes 58 beautiful human portraits that you can use in your campaigns for free. Additional portraits (including other races) can be purchased to diversify the NPCs that your players come in contact with.

Don't know where to start? Generate an NPC and use it as a launching point to craft a unique and memorable personality for your players.

Already have an NPC in mind? Head to the builder and whip them up and help your players see the NPC as you do.
