There are many ways to use Role Vs Roll other than the way listed in the box. Just recently I have been using the cards to help me create NPCs. Here is my process. Let me know what you use. I used to use the Shadowrun first edition "20 Questions" to help flesh out NPCs .. however, I did find that the list of questions was very specific to Shadowrun. What I like about using Role VS Roll cards in this way is that it is random and you will not be asking the same question to every NPC. 

 

  1. Create the basic NPC 
  2. While thinking of the back story Draw three to five Role VS Roll cards 
  3. Try to think of that character as PC for a short period of time and try to think how you would play those cards. 
  4. Write down the result as a reflection of the Characters personality
