The Guild of NPCs
As a Guild NPC, you will pledge your assistance and time to the staff of Age of Ashes for six events. You will not be able to alternate between a PC and your NPC roles from game to game, but you will earn more Glory and Experience Points (XP) per each game than a PC who takes an occasional NPC shift, and will earn 3 Glory per event, and 4 XP per event. You can attend every event you volunteer at free of charge. You will be given a place to sleep and shower separate from the PCs in a bunk-style room.
What your Duties Are:
First, come to the logistics area to talk with a staff member when you are not doing a scene. You will be assigned roles in various plots by staff, depending on what stories are running at the time in the game. You will be given a character sheet detailing the NPC you are going to play for the duration of that scene. We will try, whenever possible, to inform you of your roles ahead of the event. You will be given a name, brief backstory, and your goals for the scene(s) you are assigned.
Once you have completed the scene, return to the logistics area, and fill out the after-scene report. Please be as detailed as possible when recounting the entirety of the role play; who you ended up interacting with, what goals you accomplished, if any, course of action the PC(s) chose, if any, and any other bits of important information that came up during the scene. Once you have finished, report back to the nearest staff member, if they are not currently in a scene.
We ask that you remain for the entirety of the event, whenever possible, in order to facilitate the most consistent roleplay experience, and to earn the full XP and Glory rewards.
