Urban Monkey Warfare
The game I'm running is on hiatus for a while due to my own failure at scheduling, but all I felt I ever really needed for an NPC was:Ex3 intrigues me. But system mastery seems crucial. And running it? Gah! The antagonists seem overwhelming.
Am I wrong?
Their Dice pool for things they're good at
Their Dice pool for things they're not so good at
How their excellency works
two or three of their flashiest, coolest charms.
Since most of your oomph comes from excellencies in third ed, you're not even really selling them short.
I'm also playing a game right now set in the near north. My character is a James-Bond style Night Caste (Socialize Supernal). The party has pretty much reorganized our home kingdom so that our favored people are in charge and chased away the outside parties that were trying to mess with it (for the time being) so now we're exploring the nearest 1st age ruins.
