A while ago ChattyDM and someone else ran a couple contests where people submitted one-line NPCs. The collection of submissions was free to download, but now that I want to use it my google-fu has failed me and I can't find it anymore.

Where is the one-sentence NPC collection?

    \$\begingroup\$ Because if google is failing at this, it should be here! …Also I just plain didn't think of it. :) \$\endgroup\$ Aug 24, 2012 at 1:16
  • \$\begingroup\$ SevenSided hit the nail on the head (y u no accept your answer?). This list has been providing me with ideas on-the-spot! ever since I found it (last Wednesday). I wander what similar lists could be constructed... \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ @Vorac Isn't the collection great? (Because the delay required before accepting a self-answer made me forget to come back here and do it. Thanks for the reminder!) \$\endgroup\$ Oct 29, 2012 at 16:20

These look promising:

Generator at Roleplayingtips

More from Roleplayingtips

One more from 'tips

  • \$\begingroup\$ That leads me to One Sentence NPC Update, which talks about posting the PDF on the site soon, but site-search shows nothing after that post. Thanks for the lead! \$\endgroup\$ Aug 24, 2012 at 19:21

It turns out that the PDF is hosted at RoleplayingTips.com (Johnn Four's famous site), but it doesn't appear to be linked from anywhere on the site or ChattyDM's blog. I eventually found the direct link via a site-search with Google:

The problem seems to be that I was searching for "one sentence NPCs" (plural) when all the relevant blog posts were about the "one sentence NPC contest" (singular), not to mention the PDF simply not being linked-to from anywhere anymore.
