All proceeds from the sale of this ebook go directly to Medicins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders), an international charity providing medical support in areas of humanitarian crisis.

Everyone has a character class. The world has rules. The meaning of life is to take on new quests and slay ever more deadly monsters in the pursuit of precious experience points. It has always been like this, and always will be.

Fodrish Ablewright is a lowly Level 1 Commoner who knows he will never ascend the heights of the greatest Player Characters. But an attack on his home city not only inflicts a tragedy that shatters his world, but lays bare the strange powers underlying this system of rules, classes and XP. Stripped of even his sole Commoner level, Fodrish’s new status as a non-player character – an NPC – places him outside the rules governing everyone else, and into an adventure alongside mighty heroes and terrifying boss encounters.

But Fodrish is surprised to learn what the strongest Player Characters are actually like, and his unusual status brings him to the brink of learning the world’s deepest-buried secrets even as he is forced to struggle for his very existence.

NPC is a short fantasy novel with a dash of LitRPG and GameLit which is still accessible to general readers, from a long-established author of game-related fiction and tabletop RPGs.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
