d100 Random NPC Personality Traits table

So here’s something I just cooked up for Other Worlds – a d100 random personality traits table for adding a bit of spice to interactions with NPCs. It’s part of a science fiction supplement I’ve been working on by the name of Starfighter so there are a few genre-specific traits, but nothing that can’t easily be adapted if you’re running something else.
