From the back of the book:
The rooms are warm(ish), and the rates are low (almost suspiciously so), just don't ask what's in the pies and don't expect to have all your valuables come morning.
A tool for Games Masters and Players alike, Ultimate NPCs: Skulduggery is a collection of fully fleshed-out characters to populate your game world. Occupying the seedy tap-houses and criminal underbelly of civilization, you'll find a variety of thieves, assassins and mercenaries within, each with the backstory and statistics necessary to run as an NPC or player character.
So pull up a stool, try the ale (don't mind the lumps), and meet the regulars...
