So, I’m in the midst of converting PCs and monsters of our Pathfinder campaign to DW, and I come up against a question involving NPC allies in gameplay, and how they fit into DW’s gameplay.
At this point in the campaign, the PCs have founded a settlement and accumulated a secondary cast of 8-10 NPCs, several of whom regularly assist the PCs on adventures and in defending the settlement.
In DW, how do you handle competent NPCs? They seem like they’re more than hirelings. Should I write them up like DW monsters? Like full PCs? How do I make them autonomous contributors to things like fights and overcoming obstacles if I the players are rolling all the dice and the NPCs don’t have stats, per se?
Any help greatly appreciated!
