Have you ever....

Have you ever thought up an NPC. Only to realise their not going to fit in the game you've cooked up? I have an awesome idea for a Dralasite/Rastafarian/Bronx NY style cab driver. But the city they will be visiting may not be big enought to justify a taxi. Maybe I can work him in. I just think a dralasite with a rasta style striped wool hat. A fat cigar in his mouth. Saying things like "Ya man, everytings I're." I think that would be fun. I can see him being a reacuring dude. I figure I'll stat him up. He may prove useful. I'll post him when I get a chance.

Can't you recycle him as a space pilot the players may hitch a ride with? Like when they need to get thier tub towed after the crash land on Sigma-Six?

(I suck at Space RPGs, but the tropes are the same for the players no?)

I suppose I could do that. I think I will just try to save him though.
Just as an interesting side note. The NPC pilot of their current ship talks like Billy Bob Thortin (sp?) in Sling Blade.

Oh lord... I can imagine the player's faces when he talks...
