Chapter 5: NPC Gallery / Using the NPC Gallery

Adjusting Level

Source Gamemastery Guide pg. 203
Sometimes you'll need an NPC that fills a particular role—say an angry drunk— but the level in the stat block presented isn't the right fit for your group. You can start by applying the elite or weak adjustments to adjust the NPC's level by 1 in either direction.

If you need to change the NPC's level beyond that, use the values from the tables in Building Creatures, and add or remove special abilities as necessary to suit the NPC's new level.
