I am about to run an almost Warp Shell game. I have recruited some D&Ders after great effort and want their first session to be a wide open sandbox. I have outlined several seeds and created NPCs and bad guys to support their choices. We play at a game cafe and I am trying to have all the info on paper and easily at my fingertips. This is a challeneg in balancing “trees killed” with “level of detail.”
I like the Heroes of The Hammer NPC format, but one page per NPC seems rather large. I am pondering a 4-up NPC info card, sort of like an index card character sheet. What paper tools do you guys use for managing NPCs at the table? Got examples to share?
