EN World Review – Masks: 1000 Memorable NPCs by Engine Publishing

masks-cover-mediumWell it’s Friday, and I have had a rather troubling week working to repair my laptop, which suffered a bit of a crash on Wednesday.  Luckily, I know someone in a certain “squad” who is quite “geeky” and managed to fix it up for me.  But it did delay my usual release of my review on the EN World News site, but I managed to get it posted in time for a good weekend reading!

This week’s EN World Review is about the new supplement by Engine Publishing, written by the bloggers and authors at the GnomeStew.com RPG website.  Last year I reviewed their first release, Eureka!, which was a great system neutral resource of adventure hooks and plotlines for game masters of all genres.  Well this year, the Gnome Stew crew has come up with a new game master resource called Masks: 1000 Memorable NPCs for Any Role-Playing Game, and it is well worth taking a look at for some amazing personas with which to populate your campaign world!

Review of Masks: 1000 Memorable NPCs by Engine Publishing

I was very impressed with Engine Pubishing’s first work, and it looks like Masks has all the right stuff to make it just as well-received as Eureka! was.  The book provides ready-to-use NPCs with backgrounds and personalities, and all any GM needs to do is drop them into a campaign – optionally, a GM might need to add a stat block if intended to be a combatant against the party.  But other than that, it’s a lot of NPCs just waiting to meet your player-characters, with some great GM advice on role-playing NPCs to get the best bang for your buck!

So until next blog… I wish you Happy Gaming!
