Script followers?

Is this different than a hive minder?
When the one great scorer comes to write against your name, he writes not that you won or lost but how you played the game.

The stance and stare of a wolf you find yourself alone with will tell you that he is prepared to treat you as you would treat him. Whether that comforts or frightens you, he has told you all you need know about both.

Re: NPC Definition
I would guess "hive minder" would be pretty close.

So many (including myself) have been asking what NPC means...I thought I would post a thread.

Those who don't game, are the ones using it, being they don't understand the meaning behind the acronym.

Re: NPC Definition
Exact quote from urban dictionary dot com.
“A play on the term "non--player character" from various forms of interactive gaming (particularly RPGs).

Someone using no critical thought or reasoning skills.
Simply regurgitating a set of arguments and non-sequiturs bequeathed to them by someone else.
Also, once you get it being passed along through multiple generations of NPCs, you get the "Chinese Whispers" effect as well. Drastically ratcheting up the level of crazy.
Protestor: You're a Nazi!
Me: I'm Jewish...
Protestor: You're a racist!
Me: Have you read anything I've written in the last 10 years? It's fairly clear I'm not a racist.
Protestor: You're a misogynist!
Me: Okay, that's it. Please produce some evidence of my supposed misogyny.
Protestor: Uh...I just heard it from someone...BUT YOU'RE EVIL!
Me: Ah, you're an NPC. Better get that script fact-checked...”

Plant life in animal form. Totally dependent on the surroundings to determine the output and outcome. (Soil, air, water, sun, bees, etc.) Genetic coding alone lays down everything substantial about NPC lifeforms.
