Insta-NPCs #0: A Simple Plan
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.
Insta-NPCs #0: A Simple Plan offers a simple way to inspire NPCs the next time you need a little creative boost. You get 100 different descriptors to play with in this one, along with four sample characters you can use right away.
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?
All for free. Can’t beat THAT price, can you?
This is the first in a new series of short (3-5 page), system-neutral supplements from Moebius Adventures designed to inspire creative NPCs to populate your worlds.
