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