UNE is the Universal NPC Emulator. With just a handful of dice rolls, UNE can help create a surprising non-player character (NPC) with its own motivations. A few more dice rolls, and UNE can provide more direction to place the newly-created NPC smack dab in the center of the story. It can even help determine the NPC’s general mood towards the player characters.
Best of all UNE is system and setting agnostic. It will work in Techno-Roman science fiction just as well as 1930’s Cthulhu hour or apocalypse fantasy.
