Default Re: Can NPCs break the rules? (moved from KS discussion)


Can (may) NPCs break the rules? No, every figure in play should follow all of the rules. If that's a literal rather than rhetorical question, I would think that's a no-brainer.

May the GM construct a figure/character that a player could not or would not be allowed to construct? Of course, and why not! How is that really different than, say, the GM putting a rainbow bridge in the story, even though no rules allow a player to construct a rainbow bridge?

If the real question is should the GM construct humanoid characters that have powers and abilities far, far above those a PC could attain, the answer will always be:

it depends on the story and how that NPC will be used.
