Bestiary

In this Bestiary you’ll find average stats for various non-player characters and common creatures. Please note that the Defense listed is always the unarmored Defense. Bonuses granted by armor or shields are listed in parenthesis.

Optional : If you need non-human NPCs, like an Orcish Bandit, or an Elfish Mage, just add the racial talents listed in Appendix 2.
