Episode 1772: A Couple of Song and Dance Men

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

When playing NPCs, don't just sit behind your GM screen and describe what they do. Get up and prance around the table, cackling and lunging at players and speaking with a foreign accent, while flinging your arms in the air. Give them a visual impression of the NPCs they're interacting with.

Just be careful to keep their movements within the scope of things that you can physically do without crashing into furniture or pulling a hamstring or whatever.
