Description:

Who's Who... and Who's What

Everyone slides through Sigil sooner or later. But plenty of cutters call the Cage home, and it's their shops, trades, and peels that keep the jink flowing - and the bone-boxes flapping. A body's got to know who sells bogus goods, and who'll scrag him (or worse) just for the fun of it. 'Course, the trick is telling friend from foe. In Sigil, a fiery fiend ain't always a serpent, and a shining celestial ain't always a lamb.

This 128-page book provides Dungeon Masters with details on over 40 intriguing characters and groups found in Sigil, ready for immediate use in any Planescape campaign. Each entry features history, motivation, and secrets, along with complete game statistics and brand-new, full-color art. What's more, the stories are woven together throughout, creating a rich tapestry of relationships that brings Sigil alive. Among the unforgettable characters in these pages are:

  • Fell, the dabus who turned his back on the Lady of Pain.
  • Farrow, a shadow elf spy with 15 personalities - one for each faction.
  • Alluvius Ruskin, an old tiefling who sells keys for every portal imaginable.
  • Djhek'nlarr, a githyanki who dares map the Lady's dread Mazes
  • The Will of the One, a gang of Signers out to revive a dead god.

Meet your neighbors - before they meet you!

Product History

Uncaged: Faces of Sigil by Ray Vallese is a textbook example of how to make a NPC-focused game supplement that thematically matches the campaign setting. The city of Sigil, floating hub of the infinite planes, is a swamp of interconnected plots, shifting allegiances, and secret promises. This supplement to the Planescape line echoes the city's themes by creating a collection of 40 NPCs and groups who are similarly woven together by secrets and alliances. The result is a tapestry of interesting personalities that can be easily dropped into a game as a minor character or a major NPC, all of them loaded down with plot hooks for further adventure.

Do I Know You? Each detailed NPC includes game statistics, roleplaying tips, combat tips, history, motivations, secrets, and connections to other NPCs in the book. Brand new, full-color art illustrates each NPC. There are NPCs detailed from all walks of life, from the titan Zadara, the secret investor behind many a shady business expedition, to The Us, a swarm of cranium rats that has achieved terrifying power and wisdom.

The Ties That Bind. An appendix gives further information about other individuals and organizations in Sigil that might be of interest. Several pages of quick plot hooks are illustrated with diagrams that details each NPC who might be involved in the plot. A final page details at a glance where in the city each NPC might be found.

Focused and Complete. Uncaged: Faces of Sigil does just one thing - mapping the nebulous social intricacies of Sigil - but it does that thing very, very well. This is a book well worth reading.

About the Creators. Ray Vallese was employed as a games editor and developer at TSR between 1994-1997, primarily working on the Planescape line. Nowadays he is a freelance editor.

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.
