NPCs

NPCs are probably the most underappreciated thing in RPGs, most players treat them like worthless garbage and then on the rare occasion the players don't treat them like garbage the GM doesn't build them up enough to make them worth very much... When built and used right NPCs can be very worthwhile to the campaign they can provide information, support, or possibly rewards depending on the situation they also can hinder your party if you happen to underestimate an evil NPC.

What crazy experiences have you guys had with NPCs in the past? Good or Bad?

On a non-comic or gaming note. Happy Hanukkah to any of our readers who celebrate it.

I love good NPCs! I've had campaigns where we've had very memorable NPCs, even some "ascended extras" so to speak. Well written NPCs are what glues the campaign together. Otherwise it's just a wargame, not an RPG.

Also just wanted to say that I only recently discovered this webcomic and started reading it. Loving it!
