Theme Templates

Source Character Guide pg. 128
The following adjustments allow you as the GM to replicate creatures and NPCs that belong to specific organizations. As a reminder, when you add a theme template at a higher level that grants numerous additional abilities, you should strongly consider removing one or more of the creature’s original abilities to compensate, or consider raising the creature’s level by 1 and adjusting its numbers accordingly so as to add the template’s abilities without taking anything away. Either way, a template adds abilities based on the creature’s final level; for example, if you raised a 6th-level creature to 7th level, adjusted its numbers, and added a template, it would gain the template abilities listed in the 7th Level or Higher entry.
