    NPC on the Fly

    As a GM, one the great things about Savage Worlds is that you can just make up an NPC or Monster on the fly without worrying about balance, challenge rating or building it like a PC. You just give it whatever skill, rating, edge and gear you want.
    On Fantasy Grounds things are a bit different since you actually need to have all that information on the NPC entry if you want to benefit from all the fantastic automation made possible from the ruleset.
    So I made this small module. It's a cheat sheet with links to library references (from the SW Deluxe only) you would be hunting for in the middle of a game to create an NPC. With a few easy steps you can build an NPC.

    I hope this will make your job easier as a GM.

    If you have any suggestions about how to make this an even better tool, let me know. I'll see what I can do.

    i am using swade. it looks like all the links for skills, edges, hindrances etc no longer work. it would be nice if it also had a link to items so you can give them weapons easily.
