Description Edit | History

From publisher blurb:

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.

Let’s say I need an innkeeper for the place the PCs will be staying and want some idea of how that individual behaves. I can flip a coin (heads = male, tails = female), roll a few dice and end up with Male, Fear (Motivation), Derisive (Attitude), and Exhausted (Appearance)... That might lead to a description such as "The innkeeper greets you at the door with a warm, disingenuous smile. He’s exhausted from the previous night’s revelry and more than willing to rent you some rooms, but his contempt for you is barely concealed.”

In this issue, you get three tables - Motivation (20 items), Attitude (20 items), and Appearance (100 items), plus four sample characters you can use right away.
