What are NPC characteristics useful for?
NPCs can be so dry and bland when they come up and you aren't prepared for them.
Other NPCs often times only have the stats rolled up and their personalities are neglected.
That is where a list of simple characteristics can come in handy and you can stereotype the
NPC and at least give them some kind of quirk that defines them a little better. Nobody
may remember the innkeeper at that one city, but they may very well remember the innkeeper
that picked his nose right before he gave the players their change. Just some little things
to define the NPCs and make them more real. Some can be used by players as well to spice up
their character a little. The original list can be found here.
You wake in a pub and see that it's full of were creatures, and they're all staring at you with a scared look on their faces. As you continue on into the pub you look at your arm. You notice that your arm is covered in thick brown hair. As you continue on into the pub you look in a mirror, and staring back at you is a 7 foot werebear. As you continue into the pub people start to shy away form you. Once you go the bar you ask the weretigress that's the bartender and begin to ask her why everyone is shying away from you, and she begins ro tell you why. By: Steel_claws |
