Each NPC entry includes not only the profile for that character or character type, but also plenty of Game Master tips for using the character in your own games—ranging from places where this NPC is likely to be found to how they typically interact with others. Furthermore, ideas for potential encounters with these characters are also presented, giving Game Masters the seeds they need to easily incorporate these characters into their campaign.

Christopher Kastensmidt, author of the series, says:
“It is an honour to be able to work with Porcupine, a company that, in a few years of existence, has already published a number of daring and important works in its field. They contacted me very enthusiastically to offer The Elephant & Macaw Banner system to the international market. Porcupine believes in the project, which for me makes this partnership very enjoyable. “
Thomas McGrenery, founder of Porcupine and winner of the Ennie Award for Best Podcast for “Fear of a Black Dragon”, writes:
“Making the English edition of The Elephant & Macaw Banner RPG is a very exciting project. Like the stories that inspired it, the roleplaying game offers adventure and wonder, exploring a vibrant natural environment, a unique meeting of historical cultures and a rich tapestry of folklore, all of which deserve to be better known in the English-speaking world. It’s a real privilege to present in English the outstanding work that created the original Brazilian edition. “
