Hey, thanks! I was starting to think no one would EVER see this, and I thought it might be of use to other GMs.

Guest Star
Variety can be added to a sword-and-sorcery Saga by the occasional introduction of a colorful npc guest star. This can work particularly well during Sagas with fewer players, and even better if the guest star is an NPC who has interacted with the adventurers before in a different context (for instance, an old enemy now so desperate for help that he must ally with the player characters).
The Guest Star Is:
1  A former ally
2  An old friend
3  A friendly rival
4  A famous expert
5  An old enemy
6  A relative
1  An old lover
2  A fan
3  An aging hero
4  A young and promising hero
5  A former mentor
6  Send to Krongar by an old contact, or the Gods themselves.
A guest star won’t be interesting unless they have an engaging personality. If this were the Krongar TV series the actors playing these roles would be have lots of great lines. Their personality should encourage role-playing among the rest of the adventuring group. Here are a few example characteristics. Roll up to 3 times:
1  Witty
2  Rapacious
3  Cowardly
4  Foolishly brave
5  Constantly in over his or her head
6  A flirt
1  Extremely wise
2  Incredibly competent
3  Desperate to prove himself
4  Naively idealistic
5  Constantly practicing strange, harmless superstitions
6  Impossibly lucky
1  Comically inept
2  A bad luck charm
3  Honorable
4  A compulsive liar
5  Obsessive
6  Full of proverbs
Guest Star Goal
Generally the guest star will already be involved thickly in the Saga, and the Saga Generator may already have suggested his or her reasons for being part of the plot (for example, the guest star is to be Transported or Protected).
If not, then the guest star can be connected to the Task rolled during the Saga generation. For example, if Krongar needs to destroy a certain object, only THIS guest star, a wizard, knows how

I love the adventure ideas connected to the character careers, but really think those ought to be moved over to the GM section so that players won't see them while creating their characters.
