Most of these made me smile, and I can definitely see myself dipping into this list sometime in the future. The only two who I felt could us a little fleshing out, at least in appearance, were the parakeet and the sparrow. Average NPCs are perfectly acceptable, but it'd be nice to have a little more to use in a game. Go to Comment
Of the NPC-centered 30s lists, this is quite possibly my favourite so far. I didn't think it was possible to come up with 30 unique types of necromatic personalities, but somehow you did. My absolute fav is also the Ghost Horse. I can think of a dozen ways to place him in a game and could probably base an entire adventure or two off of him. Go to Comment
"Binding the Life Coil" is an ancient quasi-mystical technique rediscovered to prolong one's life at the expense of one reproductive ability. It is a simple magikal technique that anyone can learn (a skill or feat). The promise of near immortality or a lifespan of a thousand years or more makes everyone want to learn it.
This technique has a price though, the amount of immortality is in direct response to the strength of ones reproductive spirit. Those that have never breed will live longer than those that have. The use of the technique makes conception difficult, if not impossible. So you trade the future of your society for the chance for you to see much of that future.
