A Non-playing character (or NPC) is, in larp terms, a character that - while roleplaying to keep up the illusion for other players - is not participating in the larp for his or her own larp experience but rather to fill some cruical role in the game (either a practical, off-game reason, or as a story element or "flavour"). Typical NPCs are the kitchen personel, The King, quest-givers or even game masters. NPCs can also be used as "resistance" for the players, i.e. an "opposing force".
