I have recovered my lost evil NPC portraits and icons from 1024x768 mod and corrected things, and good thing is that I saved a lot of time not having to do it from start.

Now I was thinking to add them to town encounters. Probably will have one with full party and few with low level mosters lead by one of the evil NPCs.

I have made first template for any character with portrait, meant to be used with any NPC that I don't have sprite or portrait for. Maybe I should make icon too, but here is what I have for now.

Thank You very much. Here is the icon too, it works good only that it seems there is a bug with a club as it seems there is a problem with attacking with it so NPCs just guard instead. In editor in Weapon type it stands hand held, thrown and that is probably a mistake. Will need to submit bug :)

To be honest, I have not yet understood the idea. Or is it that the face of the NPC is not visible so that you can use different protraits with him?

In any case, the different "zooms" to the character in the portrait, sprite and icon look very convincing!  :D

Yes that is the idea. I need one or more universal looking sprites that I can use any portraits with. I probably will do one more female and maybe one monster like characters, maybe even classes to like for example universal looking wizard.

That is just idea for now :) we will see how it will develop but for example this portrait and that sprite should be usable with any portrait like this one. In DC You would first see sprite shown above then some text with this (or any other) portrait
