CM Cline in Dragon Magazine 184 (August 1992) presented The 7-Sentence NPC. Back then most of my NPCs either got a full page biography or a stat block. Over time I found moving to the middle ground the 7-Sentence NPC represents a handy tool. They have the advantage of being quick to read as a GM, quick to write and easy to improvise. My version has evolved from Cline’s original into my own beast through use and abuse. Anyway I thought I’d post The New 7-Sentence NPC it in case its useful for other GMs.
