Day 14 of the 30-day D&D Challenge asks for my favorite NPC.
Again, I’ll have to give a somewhat off-the-wall answer here: my favorite NPC is just about any NPC run by my friend JJ. They could be annoying as hell, but they were also incredibly amusing. There was the tavernkeeper who fell in love with Elonna Melonna (the Melon Elf) and followed us into the dungeon, the bawling elves we found by the side of a lake who’d been beaten up by pixies, and when there were too few of us present to complete an adventuring party, JJ’s henchmen and mercenaries such as Macho the Mage.
We could never get a serious story going with JJ running a game, but we were always guaranteed a lot of laughs.
