NPCs – Ep34

Every Epic Tale Needs a Strong Supporting Cast

The Non-Player Character, next a good plot, probably the most important aspect of a game. With strong NPCs a good game can become a great game.


This episode we  talk about memorable NPCs and what made them memorable. We also touch on the process of making an NPC memorable.

    I just caught this episode, it was a really enjoyed it. I have to agree with the GM PC, it always seems it takes a bit away from the players when the GM puts in a character that is more than a standard NPC.
