Also known as "Special PCs"

Not quite PCs, more than NPCs.

A qualifier that started during John's TAMD campaign, and spilled over into UnS. The characters are technically NPCs, but John drafted un-busy people to play the NPCs frequently enough that they became, in effect, extra PCs. However, if the people who normally play the NPCs isn't around, the GM can and frequently will do so, to keep the action moving for the actual PCs.
