Retro Encounter 390 – Superior Side Characters

Retro Encounter 390 Superior Sidekicks

Only one person gets to be the hero. But is it always the right one?

Just about every RPG has a main character that can be singled out as the hero of their story, but this is not about any of them. Quite often, there’s a companion or even an NPC that is more fun or interesting than a video game’s protagonist. That’s who we want to discuss today – three RPGFan staff pick a few of their favorite less-important characters who are compelling enough to star in their own games, but never got the chance.

Featuring: Michael Sollosi, Audra Bowling, Zach Wilkerson; Edited by Michael Sollosi.

Opening and ending music by Miles Morkri.
