A Message From Wolfgang

Ignore that homunculus behind the curtain!

Twelve NPC Moods

Occasionally, it’s interesting to spice up some checks with the odd unusual modifier due to peculiar circumstances. The way an NPC feels is one option for you to consider using occasionally. The number in brackets indicated is the optional modifier to attempts made to use a Diplomacy check on that NPC. You might also consider that moods are a changeable thing to have, which might be changed by appealing to an NPC’s interest in music, giving a simple gift, or perhaps by even things such as weather.

A Dozen Local Captains of the Watch

1. Strict Jak Kebble is the terror of his men. He’s suspicious of everyone and anyone he meets; he is initially unfriendly to everyone. With his neatly trimmed beard and chest of medals he is a strict military man of few words.

2. Sober Jabe, the drunk guard captain, is rarely seen outside the alehouses and taverns of the settlement. Jabe has a pet hedgehog called Grimtooth, and anyone who has an animal is his friend. He begins as friendly in attitude to any such character.
