Random Talosian Councilmember

Posted on Updated on

Johnn@http://www.campaignmastery.com posted recently about power bases for campaigns and I told him how I had 51 Political Npcs fleshed out to interact with. He seemed impressed with it, but the secret of the RandomDM is proper use of random tables, so presented here is the table that I used to quickly generate the Council Members. Any Alliances, power bases and secret agreements can be drawn by simple conclusion when you look at power ratings, wards, years of service. The first line is an example of the excel entry for each NPC:
