The Player Characters in an RPG make up only a tiny fraction of the overall world's population. Meanwhile, the NPCs that the GM controlls make up the rest. But what are stat blocks for NPCs like? What sort of things can GMs expect to see on their side of the screen when they make a new NPC for the game? In this preview of the Legend of the Five Rings RPG, we get answers to those questions.
From the site:
From the lowliest peasant to the Emperor himself, non-player characters (NPCs) are the lifeblood of your adventures in Rokugan. These characters are everyone in Rokugan who is not one of your heroes—and though they may enter the story as enemy or ally, friendly rival or reluctant compatriot, NPCs are a Game Master’s most important tool in bringing the rich world of Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying to life.
