AGC 123 February 16th 2010 (Non-Playing With Character) (56:48)

With Mark Kinney, Carol, and Mags. Skyping due to Snowpocalypse. Convention talk. A quick look at The Dresden Files. The Boom Effect. The AGC Game Tourney continues to return, and we need your help! The new show: fandom showdowns and stuff like that (and yeah, Mark knows its been done, but we may have a twist). Mark is considering eBook readers. NPCs: what are they and how do you use them. We also present our favorite NPCs from our games. Building an effective major NPC (and how players decide this about as often as the GM). NPC as foil. The mechanical side of NPCs. Books to help with NPCs. The 3x3x3 (or making the players help you create NPCs). Pictures: to use or not? The perils of established setting characters. Next time: being a good player!
