S5-E13: NPCs

In this episode, we discuss one of the role-playing aspects of the GM – handling all the Non-Player Characters, or NPCs for short. We talk about the ways they outnumber the Player Characters, how to leverage 13th Age mechanics with them, converting PCs to NPCs and vice versa, and how to handle it when the PCs become hostile to NPCs.

In addition to talking about what we’ve learned along the way, we also highlight a few One Unique Things given to us by patrons and talk about how we might leverage them in a campaign.
