SC: The 30

The 30

The 30: The thirty miscellaneous people who are part of some group. These are drop and play personalities for a given group.

MoonHunter

The 30 is an exercise in character creation. Each member is part of a group or organization or professional archetype.

Each of these characters is basically the same (in terms of skills and mechanics) with some minor differences

. They are provided here as a quick grab for a group member's personality and chrome.

Okay, you can do all the people in a given place at a given time. What is important is that they are basic characters to fill out a place and have some dramatic connections between them and dramatic hooks for the players to latch on to.

Each character will be listed by its archetype or personality hook (in bold), and one to three lines of description. See the submissions in this group for examples.

Note: If the profession is a lonely one, i.e. there will only be one or such in a given place, then listing individual types is appropriate. Kings and Barkeeps are examples of these.

Login and Award MoonHunter XP if you enjoyed the submission!

This is an excellent idea. Great reference when you need fillers in a scenario.

Goto Author

What can I say? I love the 30s. It's a great resource for whenever you need a variety of some background character. Fun to write, too. Great idea, Moon.

Goto Author

Perfect additions...

Goto Author

What can I say. I dont love the 30's. :D

However, I am starting to enjoy checking the latest additions, and I will admit that this could be a valuable resource for any GM. So, Kudos to Moon for the idea, Kudos to Scras for the original 30 barkeeps, and Kudos overall!

Goto Author

I assume the goal is 30 30's?


Goto Author

No, but it is a worthy goal.

Goto Author

Great idea!

Okay, I feel the need to justify my 5/5 score for this codex. While most capstone codexes like these tend to score low, or not be voted on at all, Moonhunter's use of the 30 NPC challenge that I started produced 8 new lists of 30. Thats 240 new NPCs that can be fleshed out, dropped into a scenario, or what have you. To MoonHunter, I say thank you.

Updated: updated for emphasis

Goto Author

Updated some main text...

So why haven't we had more of these? Was this just a fad? Inquiring minds want to know (or want you to post 30 more people)

Goto Author

As a whole, it is an excellent set of lists, and an idea that has really taken off. And don't worry, fads do come back around here - unless they are overshadowed by newer fads.

The day is not far when there will be thirty lists of thirty, and then... then will the world end, or something. ;)

Goto Author

WOOT! 6 more 30's and we have 30 of them!

Goto Author

4 more 30's make 30 30's.


Goto Author

Does anyone have 4 more 30 ideas?


Goto Author

Val has 30 Merchants on deck... It'll be ready soon.


Goto Author

I have 30 Ryders soon on deck.

Goto Author

Cheka Man's [30 Guards] needed to be added to the Codex...

I'll leave it to Moonhunter whether my [30 Stalwart Bands] falls within the Codex's purview...


Goto Author

The Guards were added a bit ago. Your 30 bands do not meet the criteria as it is 30 individuals in a group. You do get the very worthy 30 freetext, which has some other lists of 30 related items.

Goto Author

A lot goes into this codex, from many contributors, but I really do think this codex is the bedrock of the Citadel. I've mined it early and often, not least for the concept that it's so much easier to bring even mooks to vivid life if you only have a personality trait or two to ascribe to them. A very worthy '5.'


Goto Author

Mwahahahaha

Goto Author

One of the best codex's in the Citadel, hands down. I have used several of these lists in actual games, and have been delighted with their consistent standard of quality.

Goto Author

If Scras were added as co-author, I would vote this one golden.

Goto Author

4.0/5

The 30's are a brilliant part of the Citadel, one that I'm sure we've all found a way to use.

Goto Author

as a group the '30's are my fav sub group here ,so amny of them andso many ideas to grow with. I've been working on a 30 for about 3 weeks(which as most of you realize is a VERY long time for me) can't get enuf 30s 5/5
