2015 HG: HELP: The Hypergrid WIP Show: How to with NPC, Nara Malone. Storytelling of the future

The Hypergrid WIP Show: 
How to with NPC, Nara Malone
Storytelling of the future
Non-player Characters (NPCs) are duplicates of "real" avatars in virtual worlds.  They are cost-free, always available body-doubles of avatars you might want on your stage or picture or video shoot.  NPCs can execute animations just as well as the avatar; and they can do it on cue.  This video report describes and illustrates how they can be controlled by a simple notecard script (no complex scripting language here, just detailed actions).
