In the course of Jade Regent your group will be accompanied by a number of NPCs. These NPCs can perform various jobs and roles for your caravan, as well as potentially help out in encounters. Jade Regent also introduces a point mechanic for developing relationships with the NPCs. These relationships can be friendships, rivalries, or romances, depending on how you want to play it. Details of how the relationship point system works are in the JR Player’s Guide. The one way I’m going to alter the rules is regarding the orientation of NPCs (on which JR is completely silent). So what I’ll be doing is using a die roll to randomly assign each NPC a Kinsey Scale number which will affect how easily you can enter a romantic relationship with them.
