Quick post: Blood Money non-player Characters

19 Nov

I haven’t forgotten about this project. At some point I do intend to finally get all my campaign notes up about this Vampire: The Requiem game I finished over six months ago now… One of the issues when faced with a political game with a number of non-player characters is providing the players with a useful way of keeping track of everyone they meet. Once the primary antagonists had been introduced (gradually over a few sessions) I knocked up this play aid to put all the character’s contacts and foes in the one place. I include it here as it a) took a hell of a long time to edit all the images until I was satisfied with them and b) because it will help act as a useful reference point when I start spelling out a few basics about each of these NPCs and how I used them in my Moscow game setting.

These images are drawn from a variety of sources, stock, screen caps, creative commons… I am asserting no ownership over them at all. In the unlikely event that an owner has a problem with my using them here for not for profit reasons, I’ll gladly take the image down.

    You’re one of those people who give out loads of player aids, too. Do your players ever complain of too much stuff to look at? Mine do.

      I try to limit my play aids to the absolutely necessary or things I think will help the game move more smoothly, or create atmosphere. This blog is more a list of top hits, the less successful handouts will never see the light of day. Getting the balance can be tricky as sometimes too many play aids can be overwhelming. I once had a GM give me a 12 page document to read in session in order to find relevant clues! It was clearly a case of too much information.

    Is that Victoria there? And the bald guy, maybe Vlad?

      It seems I’m unlikely to get around to completing these campaign notes due to other writing priorities. Perhaps they are Vlad and Victoria or whoever other storyguides might find useful!
