Default Cannon fodder / generic NPC data base?

Hi there, old me asking for help again. Just a quick question today: could you guys tell me of some good 'cannon fodder' or 'generic NPC' data bases? I'm looking for stuff like 'thug 1' 'thug 2' 'tough thug' 'merchant' 'dire bear' 'ghoul' and the like. Genre is medieval fantasy. I've found a few templates but I wonder if there more banks out there. Thanks!!!!

Try http://gurpswiki.wikidot.com/. The "monsters" section has some generic NPCs as well as monsters.
Also, consider investing in some books from the "Dungeon Fantasy" series, many of which include character templates (that can be used to quickly generate NPCs) and pre-generated monsters (in particular, DF2, DFMonsters1, and DFAdventure1).

For humans, I've just used the Bandits (I think that's what they're called, maybe Fighter I, II, etc.) from the Caravan To Ein Eris free adventure since... well since I got 3rd Edition in '88.

Also, if you need mobs, remember the rules in GURPS Social Engineering.

That has several useful templates. You might also try DF Henchmen. The bargain templates (Guard, etc) are about right for ordinary professional fighters (62 points) and the regular templates are good for elite thugs.
