Default Re: High GM burden - Time saving tricks?

Even though it requires some time, I have found it very useful to memorize a lot of the advantages, disadvantages and skills in Basic. I have the odd habit of making all my NPC's with points, just as regular PC's, and it's a huge time-saver that I know what most traits do. Gurps Character Assistant is an extremely valuable tool in this respect.

It is, though, not in any way necessary, as a lot of people have stated, to stat out NPC's fully. It also has some drawbacks, like keeping track of their progression. NPC's are people too, and also work to improve skills and accomplish goals and ambitions. With 100+ NPC's, this can take time.
