Have you ever created an amazing place for your campaign only to discover that you don’t immediately have a collection of NPCs to fill it? Or have your PCs ever stumbled into a place you haven’t had time to fully develop as a living, breathing part of the campaign?
Well, why not take out a handful of dice and roll up an instant NPC! Or in this case, an “Insta-NPC”!
The Insta-NPCs product line is designed to offer one or more tables to roll on to figure out a little something about the NPC you’re pulling together.
For instance, let’s say you need a tavern patron to spice things up. You roll a d8 to figure out how many descriptors you need and get a 5, which means you roll twice on the descriptor table. A couple of d100 rolls later you end up with “Overdressed” and “Flexible.” Hmmm. Perhaps this guy is an acrobat in a traveling troupe who just stopped into this tavern and needed an ale so badly he forgot to take off his costume.
Or maybe you find yourself with a “Dismissive,” “Reserved,” and “Starving” lady who simply sits down and demands to be served a meal like she owned the place. What’s HER story?
You get 100 different descriptors to play with in this one, along with four sample characters you can use right away.
All for free. Can’t beat THAT price, can you?
This is the next in a series of short, system-neutral supplements from Moebius Adventures designed to encourage more creative descriptions in your games.
