“If you will practice being fictional for a while, you will understand that fictional characters are sometimes more real than people with bodies and heartbeats.” ~Richard Bach
In the Dark World RPG our player’s characters, with their own history, likes, dislikes, strengths, weaknesses, fears, and abilities, play the largest role in how the story and the world develop.
Listed to the left are the current lead, NPC, and historical characters in the DWRPG. All characters are listed in alphabetical order.
These characters are the main characters in the existing storylines. Each character plays an important role in the story threads they are involved in. New characters are added to this list when introduced, and removed when no longer active. Some characters commonly referred to by their nick names or aliases are listed as so, for easier reference.
NPC’s are non player characters that typically don’t have a long standing role in the game. However, some of our NPC’s have developed repeat roles throughout the game world and are important to the threads they are involved with, giving reason for their own pages.
Here is a sheet players may use to create extended use NPC’s: NPC Bio Sheet.
**NO ONE has permission to kill an NPC unless given express permission from the NPC’s creator or the GMs. Unless otherwise stated, NPC’s are controllable only by their creator. NPC’s are not meant to be used as main characters, but can be requested if approved by the GM’s.
Historical figures are characters who aren’t consisntently present in the game, but their influence, name and reputation are widely known. They are part of the overall main story arch for the game realm, and aren’t classified as characters or NPC’s and are controlled only by the GM’s.
