    Cheers! I honestly need to play more stereotypical noblemen. I always have a blast being an arrogant so-and-so when I DM them. No reason not to share the love with my player-self!

    Well, at least the monk isn't throwing the horse. Through why the alchemist hasn't created some sort of horse abomination yet is beyond me.

    If one horse devours another, do they both win if they cross the finish line first?

    Only if the first horse has bits of the second horse stuck in its teeth.

    You know the saying. Never look a flying two-headed fire-breathing horse in the mouth.

    Handbook Of Heroes #357: Session Summary



    How do you go about organizing your notes? How do you handle recapping at the beginning of sessions? How do you remember all those obscure freaking NPC names!?

    Personally, I just have a good head for names. I tried writing it down for a while, but I found it was easier for me to just remember. Give NPCs some memorable characteristic (ie we had a dwarf who's armor was extremely shiny) and the party will remember the NPC, even if they don't remember the name. After that, its just a matter of keeping good track of your character sheets.

    Oh man... I wish that was me! I just had my first in-town session in about three months. I was scrambling to go back into my old notes to remember who the hell all my townspeople were. I've got to start keeping a proper glossary or wiki somewhere.

    I find statting out all the important (ie named) NPCs helps. And then you can just keep their character sheets in a 3 ring binder. Add a new tab if you have more than one town.

    I actually have a program that can generate characters automatically. All I need to do is tell it to generate, say, a 9th level human fighter and bang, instant character sheet. Fill in the name and add a couple details about who he is and where he lives and youre golden.

    Theoretically it will even generate spells for spellcasters, but since those can vary from day to day, I tend to just delete those and just fill in my own if I suspect I will need them.

    Fun fact, my dad actually programmed it himself when he was in college. At this point its probably running on the computer equivalent of duct tape and chewing gum. Im sure there are similar programs out there though, he cant have been the only one to have had that idea in decades. We call it the DM helper.

    So often, NPC tag-alongs turn into extensions of the party. Why not allow them to bring their own motivations and storylines to the game?
