NPC Rogues Gallery

Postby coreyvw » Fri Jan 19, 2018 6:46 pm

Other than the very dated 1001 Traveller Characters book from the 80’s, do we know where to find great archetype NPC stat blocks for Traveller would be?

What's dated about the 2010's version?

It's not really cheeky. It's a reference to this: http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/796 ... h=161_4511. And it's fair to wonder if there's anything wrong with it. (Though it was also fairly obvious from your initial post that you didn't seem to be aware that there was a MgT 1e revamp of the 1,001 Characters book.)

I have the hardcover printing. It's excellent.

I avoid using archetypes, tropes, and stereotypes for my NPCs at all costs. Don't want my game sessions to be lame.

So... all your NPCs are bowls of tapioca pudding?

Seriously, I don't see how you can avoid using tropes. No matter what you do, there's a trope for that.

I forgot to add cliche characters to that list. But it's just common sense not to use them in game sessions.

All, thank you. I am aware of all the previous versions of Traveller I just didn’t know they did a newer 1001 characters, I got it now and it’s great! Thanks again :^)

That's not really an answer. O.o
