Hi, last game my players and I created a few NPCs by circles rolls; and I created a relationship on the fly with GMs points.
Some, almost all, of these NPCs look like they should be further detailed than what the Contacts rules imply, since they’ll be used in the story for a little more that a simple roll here and there. Also, I have the time now to flesh them out before the next game… so I wanted to burn them as full NPCs; even if, by now, they’re not relationships per se (except the one created by me as GM).
I’m trying to find something in the rules about this process; but the NPCs chapter seem to imply that Contacts and NPCs are absolutely different things; and offer no help about how to set their skills, lifepaths, stats… I’m trying to create them according to what the PCs chose when rolling circles (mainly, the exponent bonus selected), but it’s very difficult to do so without feeling I’m breaching some kind of balance issue on either of the underpowered/overpowered sides…
Any help? Should I cease to try burning them and keep them as loosely defined contacts?
