    Playing a character is like putting on a mask: Slip on a mask, and you become someone else.

    This book presents 1,000 masks non-player characters that are fun to play, and that your players will never forget. Featuring a foreword by gaming industry legend Wolfgang Baur,  Masks  is the ultimate NPC resource.

    Think of your favorite character from a game, book, or movie. What makes them memorable? It's not their Strength score, or how many hit points they have it's who they are as a person: what they look like, how they act, their personality, and what drives them.

    Using a simple but powerful template that features Appearance, Roleplaying, Personality, Motivation, Background, and Traits,  Masks  provides the core elements of a thousand great characters.  MasksNPCs are designed to be used on the fly, no prep required   but with enough depth to be used when planning adventures, as well.

    Within this massive collection you'll find the resources you need to portray vivid NPCs in your games:

    • Fantasy, science fiction, and modern NPCs:  333 of each (334 in fantasy), all easily adaptable to any genre and any RPG
    • Roles and traits:  Every NPC has a role villain, ally, or neutral and is categorized by traits like famous, criminal, and warrior
    • Clear, useful game mastering advice:  Masks covers re-skinning NPCs to fit other genres, making your portrayals memorable, and more
    • Handy tools:  NPCs are indexed by trait, name, and author; an appendix lists groups like Tavern Patrons and Spaceport Denizens; and Masks provides over 1,900 names in an easy-to-use format
    • No game mechanics:  These system-neutral NPCs can be used in any RPG
