While the the Player Characters focus on being Big Darn Heroes most of the time, and try and figure out how to do stuff, we NPCs get to be heroes, villains, townsfolk, animals, monster, and everything else in the world. And we get to be in the thick of things all the time. We define where the action is, where the story happens. Some of our characters appear, do their thing, and leave (usually dead.) Others become recurring friends and some are ongoing villain or even one of the Big Bad's in disguise...or not! So being an NPC can be a LOT of fun. And we make the game happen for everyone else too.
Its also a great way to start playing, you get to learn about the rules, learn about the history of the world, and practice everything so when you decide to create a player character of your own design, or to commit to NPCing and create or earn some of the fascinating recurring characters who make up the world.
For you our events are always free and include housing and all the same food as the player characters. Cabins, beds, mattresses of course, and the main NPC Cabin has its own fire if needed and electricity.
You are the critical resource, without which Kaurath could not come to life for our players. So thank you for all the time, short or long, you are able to invest in it.
There are a series of options to help you learn more about being an NPC here at NERO Hartford. Choose the appropriate button to learn what you should know if you are new to being a Non-Player Character at all, new to NERO rules (and culture), or just new to playing NERO Hartford Kaurath.
We also have some buttons up or on the left that will take you to our guide to getting started with the NERO rules and the stories currently being told at our events.
And if there is something else needed just let us know. We want all our NPCs to build up a standard LARP kit starting with basic black outfits and working up to full costume for named characters as you get cast as them, and we are glad to help them make that happen.
