I'm making a list of influential vampire NPCs that will exist in any but the smallest of cities. I do this because I wish to start a sandbox campaign in Vampire, and as such, the players will need to know the movers and shakers in the campaign city.
I plan on making these NPCs with the players before the first session, as it would likely strengthen the players' bond with the general setting.
The list should consist of the more influential NPCs, characters whom the players have met on at least a few occasions, such as when the prince summons vampires to the elysium. So far my list consists of these NPCs:
- The Prince
- All existing, local covenant leaders (Prince will often be one of these, I figure)
- The Sheriff and possibly some hounds
- The Harpy (if any)
- Some of the vampires in control of larger territories
Not all of them have to be extensively detailed, of course, simple descriptions will suffice. The plan is to let the players make their characters after this initial "NPC setup"-phase.
Are there any more important NPCs that would be present in any larger city? If so, who?
