Every hero needs an antihero, every defender of the light must have darkness to keep at bay and every pure-hearted paladin needs a vile, shadow-cloaked assassin to cut down. Scions of Evil presents scores of foes to bedevil your PCs and five sinister bands of black-hearted individuals.

As well as over 20 pages of new material including new villains and minions, Scions of Evil collates the NPCs and groups first presented in:

As well as presenting 20 new villains and many new minions!

135 stat blocks (CR 1/4 - 23)!

Each villain benefits from an extensive write-up including notes on their background, personality, mannerisms and distinguishing marks as well as a fully detailed stat block, plot hooks and suggested encounter groups making it easy to insert the villain into almost any campaign.

Scions of Evil also includes a selection of minions including stalwart, black-hearted swordsmen; calculating, warrior monks; stealthy, amoral rogues and more powerful foes such as including noisome ghouls and a cunning gargoyle, charismatic quasit, bloodthirsty ogre-magi and malevolent invisible stalker!
“The layout is elegant, clean and easy on the eye, as always with Raging Swan Products. Most importantly, the content is pure gold. And that’s a lot of gold, because the book is 200 pages thick.”
Angel Garcia (five stars)

“All in all I think that Scions of Evil is an excellent collection of evil NPCs, which is very useful for any Game Master.”

“Then let me assure you that the new pieces of content, were they collected in a single pdf, would probably score 5 stars and perhaps even the seal of approval. Then, take a good look at the price. 14 bucks. For almost 200 pages of expertly done villains and characters, for 135 statblocks. That's probably a bang-to-buck ratio that will be hard to beat indeed...On its own merit, this compilation can be considered a dark gem that will have many a GM out there cackle with glee. Since the new villains often deliver rather complex statblocks and cool ideas, I'll settle for a final verdict of 5 stars + Endzeitgeist seal of approval. If you haven't checked out what Raging Swan as to offer, get this selection of vileness!”
--Endzeitgeist (five stars + seal of approval)

“It's hard to go wrong with 'Scions of Evil' when it comes to bang for one's buck; the library of ready-to-use stat blocks alone are legion (135, for those keeping score) and the collected back-stories and pre-made organizations can suite a broad range of levels of play from low to high plateaus of adventuring. While there are certainly plenty of fairly straightforward foes throughout the product, the presented 'persona' villains are cleverly written and boast personality--and the methods and machinations these foils and antagonists could bring to a given campaign are well-realized and often inspiring. Adventure seeds, plot hooks, info-gathering lore and combat tactics all serve to add extra shine to the villains and personas--providing much flexibility for tailoring each into an existing story.”
Gozuja (five stars)

“I received the book (which itself is good quality, a lot better than I expected for the price) and I was not disappointed. I was cynical and sure it would be filled with a handful of useful bits and bobs but instead I was greeted by a whole spectrum of engaging and believable characters to flesh out any campaign or adventure.”
