Dumb Table: Some Colorful NPCs

We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post.

Since people seemed to like last week’s Dumb Table, and since I’ve got jujitsu chauffeur duty soon, I’m going to do another one this week. There’s been a little forward momentum on Cinemechanix in the last few days, so hopefully I’ll get back to the design journal next week. Just like last week, I’m going to link the Wikipedia entries so you can read them for yourself and figure out the best way to fit the character into your game. Most of these characters fall into the “colorful eccentrics” but some may just serve as conduits for introducing conspiracies, magic, fringe science, and other weirdness.
