From the Introduction:
Much of the material in this supplement has been gathered from the pages of the Hero’s Handbook, published by Bloodstone Press. There is also some information that has been pulled form the Primal Codex and the Book of Broken Dreams, also published by Bloodstone Press.
The four characters (and one cohort) presented here are equipped as standard NPCs (5,600 gp at 6th, 27,000 gp at 12th, and 150,000 gp at 18th level) and include background and personality
descriptions. The background and world-specific content is merely for flavor. The facets of each personality have been determined with the rules for personality found in chapter 2 of the Book of Broken Dreams.
