I was really bad at playing NPCs. I was also bad at creating them. However, I think I’m getting better at it as I struggle to create interesting NPCs and roleplay them properly. Watching games on youtube and twitch also helps getting ideas.
Among the NPCs I’ve created, Aoth is the one I like the most, I think. He was an Eldritch Knight that worked for a wizard in one of the Colleges of Magic in that world. His background as a former criminal gave him information about what was happening in and out of the city that other means couldn’t provide. That made him a very valuable asset for the wizard, since his life was in danger. He was tasked to help a friend of the wizard(a player’s character) in his journey in some ancient temple but both have probably perished by now. I say probably because nobody found their bodies.
An honorable mention is Shuushar from Out of the Abyss. It’s the first NPC that I believe I roleplayed well enough. That’s probably because I watched the Out of the Abyss game with Greg Tito and copied some stuff from him.
That’s all for today. Tomorrow I’m going to talk about my favorite Undead.
So until then, have fun!
