Reverb Gamers Prompt #26
Atlas Games is doing this thing called “Reverb Gamers 2012″, with 31 question prompts to kick off 2012. I’m going to post one up each day, including weekends, throughout January. I invite you to do the same! And check out @ReverbGamers on Twitter or Facebook.
REVERB GAMERS 2012, #26: Who or what was the most memorable NPC you’ve ever encountered? Why?
Hmm. So many games.
I can think of one, but it was memorable because it was a really bad GM bit, where the GM had his pet NPC in a convention one-shot, and was talking about him after the game was over. I won’t go in any further, because that’s unkind.
There’s one thing. I was playing in a Sorcerer game run by Jesse Burneko (of the Actual People, Actual Play podcast). It was a Victorian gothic game with a heavy familiar theme, and my demon was my grandfather bound in a pocket watch. The only way the watch could communicate was through normal pocket watch activity. During a tense scene, I was talking with him/it. Jesse delivered a powerful performance of a barely animate object that sticks with me today.
