Scribbles from the Ballpoint Pen of Stan!

"Many guards were killed ... even Captain Krang!"
"Man! I HATE it when a named NPC gets killed!"


Let's face it, like "red shirts" in Star Trek, NPC warriors pretty much exist just so that they can be killed in order to SHOW the PCs how dangerous a situation is. For the most part, they come and go without really being noticed or even named. But every once in a while an NPC sticks around and makes an impact on the PC group. They get to know him and consider him almost like one of their own.

And when THAT character goes the way of all NPCs, it REALLY has an impact ... until the next week, when the players KNOW a new NPC will show up to fill that void.
