Bonus Experience 15: Making—and Playing—Great NPCs

NPCs—never just sentient quest boards. Today we’re talking about how best to use your NPCs, how to make them believable and interesting, and how to give them all different voices even if you’re not a professional voice actor running a critically-acclaimed Actual Play. We’re also talking about how to pronounce Chejop Kejak, how to avoid doing accents, and paying clumsy homage to Sweet Brown.
