I feel the Reaction Table is only fully usable as-is for NPCs that are otherwise largely-undefined... or perhaps insane NPCs who can easily run the full gamut from blood-feud to hero-worship simply based on first impressions. If you get a Disastrous reaction from a merchant, you may end up with a shady merchant with a mean streak who is heavily bigoted against people like you and also has a bad impression (and may either have no need of whatever you're selling or need it badly enough he/she is more than willing to rob or even kill you for it); with an Excellent reaction from what would have been the same merchant, you may end up with a genuinely friendly merchant who happens to really like people like you and also has a really good impression (and may also be rather in need of whatever you're selling, or has an overstock of whatever you're shopping for, or whatever).
