Naming NPCs
Is it wrong to name an NPC in a roleplay game after a workmate? Particularly with reference to arranging to have someone the target of a kidnapping, mugging, beating or assassination?

I thought things like that were the reason FOR roleplay games.

...exactly so! Sometimes *particularly* if the workmate-in-question is also gaming with you.

Wait, maybe that's why I never had a gaming group last more than a few meetings...

Hmm, use someone's OC name as their IC victim. I like that one.

It was bad enough last session when someone was going around asking if we'd seen Paul Taylor... :/

Remember the obligatory addition of a silent 'h' to the name. You know, just so the guy doesn't figure it out.

Wow, now there's a coincidence.
My housemate posts on lj as sebbo.

Well, I've been toying with mismatching forenames and surnames. You get some quite odd mixes when you start talking about an international addressbook :)

Whatever helps you de-stress. It's all part of our coping mechanism...
