This product is far and away one of the best purchases I have made on RPGNOW. I have commented on a number of quality documents and supplements, but none compare to this with regard to value and usefulness.
I am, as many are, a very busy GM without the time to give as much thought to NPC generation as I would like. But, I do have the opportunity to sit and read a supplement like this for a few minutes at a time and digest what I've read as I drive to and from work.
"NPC Essentials" guides the reader through a number of different NPC creation methods and gives them a lot to think about! Well done.
I make it a policy to never give anything I review five stars, unless I believe that it is perfect. This document is perfect.<br><br>
<b>LIKED</b>: I like all of it, but in particular, I like the opening chapters on NPC design most of all. They talk about important elements such as determining an NPC's power base and the details a GM should include to make them memorable. Additionally, the Chapter on Roleplaying NPC's goes into such wonderful depth - even going into a brief discussion on voice acting!<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: There is nothing about this product I didn't like.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Excellent<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Very Satisfied<br>
