The 4 Sentence Tool By: Clemmensen

The 4 Sentence Tool is a quick way to describe a NPCs personality in greater detail using the 4 sentences: Fascinated by, Seduced by, Offended by and Frightened by.

Knowing more about your NPC's personality and behavioral patterns as a GM, makes it easier for you to interact with the players and create memorable NPCs.

7 Things About LAbyNite 2.0 By: Scrasamax

The original LAbyNite game started as a yahoo group BB game, and it mixed Vampire the Masquerade and The Fast and the Furious. There was a mix of cars, guns, violence, sex, street life and the underground worlds of both criminals and of the undead. That game ended some years ago, and there was been an interest in reviving/rebooting it. The following are going to be some flagpole ideas for the new game and revised setting.

How To Make Your Orcs TRULY Horrific By: Morningstar

Someone complained that orcs, in the campaigns he knew, were just cannon fodder -- there was nothing horrible, or terrifying, about them. This was the answer I gave. It proved a controversial one, and some may think it takes a stronger stomach to contemplate than they appreciate. This is your content warning: if you're easily revolted, I won't mind if you give this one a miss.
