Companion Characters: Mercenaries for Hire

Mercenaries are a common faction in fantasy fiction, but when was the last time your group hired someone?  We have to imagine, in a world where adventuring is allowed, mercenaries are everywhere.  In a world defined as “points of light,” towns need to have go-to guys they can count on.  Where are they?

Here’s a selection of mercenaries, eager for work, ready to be placed into your campaign.  Their qualifications?  Combat speed and a certain… knack.  Each is created with the intention of quick, efficient combat and a usefulness your party can admire.  Their damage is decent, their choices and hit points are low.  They are mercenaries for hire.

    VERY NICE! I love when a site creates something that cut down prep time for me as a DM. Are these in PDF form for easy printing?
