Good question. Hmmm. depends how far things go. If you look at ATM 2, what has basically developed is each player running around with an entourage of NPCs. The results are hilarious, but rather out of hand from the game founder's point of view!

So...never let NPCs dominate too much. They're there to give a sense of a wider community. I wouldn't, for instance, get inside their heads except in a very unusual situation.

My lady Thuringwethil, it's very good to know you're at my service...!
