NPCs talked about in this episode:

Frank –

Blustery man, chomping cigars, running the interview. He’s seen this so much he doesn’t think the second murder has happened, he thinks that the players are making too much out of it. He’s seen it all before in this interview process. They dislike at least one of the player characters.

Short of stature, and has a comb-over. Suffering withdrawal of his cigar smoking, still makes the hand motions to deal with the cigar.


Caroline –

They are the planner, they devised the initial scenario that the investigators are going through and attempting to solve, including how the night is supposed to progress, who ‘killed’ the victim and the implement. As their plans go awry they get more and more frazzled

In her late 20s, graduated early, this scenario is the first time she’s been in charge of any sort of large scale gathering. She starts the night very calm and collected, very logical and ‘cold’ and as the night goes on she becomes irritated. Dressed with big round glasses,


Jason –

Nice man at the front desk of the precinct. No one would suspect him of having a mean bone in his body, but now…. He’s dead, Frank.

He had knowledge of comings and goings in the building, but now he knew something that someone wanted him dead with. He was the one who could put two and two together, but he didn’t know he needed to.


Sonja –

Runs the negotiations branch of the police force. Brash woman  that is fairly short and wears sunglasses on her head all the time, even in side. Always wearing a duster/trench coat out into the field. When Frank and Sonja enter a room everyone else goes quiet since her and Frank do not get along usually. Has a very high willpower and a trained high charm/negotiations. 2 presence  Frank has to roll a fear check every time she walks into the room. She’s trained to the Nth degree for hostage negotiations, but is more naturally forceful in her demeanor. (high will average presence)


Dan the Lab tech –

Kind of lazy lab tech that works in Franks division. He’s taken this assignment to be the interviews dead body because he’s wanting to get noticed by Frank. He takes notes for people in the lab and is wanting a promotion to do actual lab work… Or so he says.
