Slight Snag...

So I hit a slight snag with the 4 things I was debating on posting. 3 of them being Dramatis Personae posts. And an article entitled "Fun & Thematic" V. "Optimized & Min-Maxed". I need to revamp my Dramatis Personae to the new template version (6.6.5) I posted on Wednesday. And the article needed more editing for the multitude of grammar mistakes and redundancy in it. Remember folks writing an article while working on something else can lead to many errors.

Hopefully I will get the article up Monday/Wednesday of next week. With the first of the Personae characters on Friday.

Sorry bout this...

Dramatis Personae 0: Intoduction

                Now as promised I present to you my system for creating unique named NPCs. This system was designed to give a GM a pool of NPCs without taking away their ability to tailor them to their campaign.
                Now I only keep on hand the basic information for the NPCs. This includes a ‘Stat Block’ and ‘Personal Block’. By only including this information a GM can incorporate a NPC into multiple campaigns while giving each incarnation a different feel.
I have used this system for every campaign I have ran. In fact I have used an Elf Wizard named Alyron and a Dwarf Cleric named Brina. My players never realized until I had to quickly create a Tengu Rogue named Rox while they were planning and shopping.
Dramatis Personae will hopefully be up at least every other week if not every week.

Here is the Table I use:

A Interesting Concept

A game where players are masterminds trying to take over the world? I love it! They are looking for kickstarter backers. If anyone who reads this would like to see this lite RPG made and can help I strongly encourage you to. I only wish I had 30$ to spare for their kickstarter. Heck I would even pledge more if I could. and wouldn't even need more than the 30$ level rewards.

We need more games like this. And like Fiasco.
