Default Compendium of NPCs

I would love a compendium of generic henchmen of differing power levels with menu options to customize them; all displayed in the DFRPG shorthand.

On my blog I did note that Kevin Smyth, author of Hand of Asgard and Nordlondr folk, is working on a 32-page Henchmen book. No word on when just yet, but "this year" seems quite reasonable.

Hand of Asgard is a fantastic book; I think I've consulted it nearly every day for the past week. (Got some clerical action coming up.) I'm glad that Kevin will be writing more for Gaming Ballistic.

I always enjoy NPC books, too. The old GURPS 3e Who's Who series was fun and I still consult Warriors, Rogues, and Wizards for my DFRPG games. It would be great to have something similar for 4e/DFRPG (and Nordlond, of course).

I think a lot of people on the kick starter missed it because it was added late. Orders were something like a third lower than Nordlondr Folk.

Honestly it is one of my favorites of the short supplements that Iíve made and I think it is an underappreciated work. I know itís me saying that but he really did a nice job at differentiating the spell list, advantages, disadvantages, and skills that make one have an affinity for a particular divine domain. And make no mistake, the domains are obviously flavored after the Norse pantheon, but the domains themselves are agnostic to particular flavors of Gods.

I love Hand of Asgard and am basing much of my work of porting pathfinder deities and clerics on the write ups there. Some will be lifted pretty much as is, such as using Death as Pharasma, only changing main-gauche for scythe on the weapon options.

I actually wanted to see how close the god of mischief came to Maui

What can I say except "you're welcome"?

(Seriously, thank you for the praise, it was a lot of fun to write.)
