Major NPCs and the Actors who portray them in your game.


Recommended Posts

When running the various personalities in Runequest, I went through the GM Adventure book and put a label next to most of the npcs, each label had a name of an actor that I used to help capture who these characters were and how I wanted to portray them in my game. ( I used small sticky notes for this.) What actors spring to mind when you run the various personalities your players interact with? Here are the ones I use.


Leika Black Spear: Angelina Jolie.

Asborn Thriceborn: Willem Dafoe. Especially Williams Manic Energy since in films like Boondock Saints.

Dunorl Brandgorsson: Anthony Hopkins.

Ereneva Chan: Lisa Bonet

Erannina Chan: Zoe Washburne

Nameless: Grace Jones - Conan specifically. 

Gooseberry Sprig: Steve Buscemi

Hartkos the Bearwalker: Danny Trejo


I still have a few that I haven't decided on as of yet.

I’m not much of a movie buff (but, I have at least seen I Claudius…), so, for what it’s worth:

  • Patrick Stewart (Sejanus, I Claudius) for Fazzur Wideread.  Though Fazzur might be more honourable...

I'd suggest Brigitte Nielsen (from her Red Sonja days) for Kallyr Starbrow, but I've not seen it, and you if you're after acting skills, I'm not sure she got good reviews...

I'm glad you afford Goosebery Sprig his rightful place in the pantheon of Major NPCs.
