Crooks! Good value, with multiple ordinary joes like ninjas and superspies

Says over 50 in the blurb, underselling itself a bit, given the ordinary joe “vampires, superspies, robots” etc. as it mentions. Will definitely pay those given the work put in.

Aliens [Broan, Skoviak, Waloran,], Antag Agents [Technician, Officer,], Atomic Brain,
Beholder, Bestiary [Behemoth, Chimera, Manticore, Undine, ], Black Diamond, Blitz,
Combots [Trainer, Pawn, Knight, ], Cultists [Initiate, Adept, Trusted Sibling, Highest Among Equals, Most Holy,], Carrion Queen, Choke Chain, Clique [Boy Toy, Crush, Jawbreaker, Other Woman, Pixie, Wallflower, ], Czar,
Demons [Enforce, Nemesis, ], Dr Dungeon,
Goblins [Henchling, Gremlin, ],
Iron Cross,
Johnny Reb,
Kalak the Mystic,
Mechanauts [Thunder, Armageddon], Military Personnel [Soldier, Snip[er, Officer, ], Miss Martian, Moodswing, Moonquake, Mountain King, Murder Man [Butcher Boy, ],

X-Hort the Converted,

This supplement says 13 villains…but it is 233 pages, which does cause you to wonder.

As you can see, a lot of other characters included under there. The major thirteen get several pages of backstory writeup, plus there are adventures, spells, gear and assorted supporting characters, aliens and monsters

You could do a campaign with this book.

So call it 50 odd characters of so for $14.99.

How about character cost CC is price per character and character density CD = characters per page.

The lower the density the more other material there is, or other formatting.

CC = 0.28 CD = 0.23
