    NPCs should have a tagline for adventures they've been in. How complicated would it be to add a tagline for players they've interacted with?

    What exactly do you mean by 'tagline'? Right now some NPCs have a 'First Appearance' & 'Subsequent Appearances' bit with links. I don't think it would be difficult to expand on that a little to include reference to PC interactions.

    Sorry, I don't remember what it's called. Categories? In the same place where they're listed as NPC, aren't they sometimes listed under the adventures they've been in? Like, Benevolent Seeker should say [NPC][Escort Service].

    Or something.

    Ah, yes, they are 'Categories'. That should be possible. I don't think that would interfere with the 'Adventures' page but I'm not entirely sure.

  • #15
    The Adventures page reads the "Games" category to see what sub categories are contained within. Then it processes each of those one at a time in order to create its page.

    Once a game has finished, I have been clearing the characters out of the particular game category and moving them on to the next one, the DWI or wandering the streets. So, I could see the NPC being abandoned with no one else in the category with him. The association would get lost as the players move on.

    On the other hand, I could create a "Finished Games" category, move the old games into there, and then back fill all the categories to the characters. But, we are talking 45 games and over 100 characters now. Not a quick project by any stretch. And category creation is kind of touchy. It is case sensitive, and as far as I can tell, you cannot delete a category even if it is empty. So, it takes a little care and planning to get everything the way you like.

    That would take care of the "I met so-and-so NPC before" associations for if PCs have interacted, but doesn't allow for a "I saved her life" vs. "I befriended so-and-so" vs. "just met" distinction.

    ~~~~~~~~~~

    PS: I am about to kick a couple characters off the street as I don't think anyone has seen anything from them in more than three months. Davian and Fester are the first to go. Has Toasterferret disappeared as a player?

    Sounds like categories would be more work for not enough pay-off. Cross-referencing relationships in NPC and PC sheets sounds like the best way to keep track.

    Haven't seen Toasterferret around since he disappeared from Distant Relations.

  • #17
    Yeah, that was what I was thinking too. If it is done manually on the sheets, it can more accurately reflect what the relationship is.

    I also need to start adding my NPCs to the wiki. The problem is, the one I have fleshed out the most, well, it is all her secrets that I have detailed out, like even her name. So, I shouldn't go posting them.

    Thanks for the info on Tf.
