I''m not sure if this thread should be posted here or in the AI disscusion threads. I was wondering what an NPC is, and what the heck it stands for. The AI people are always talking abou them. Thanks

NPC = Non-Player Character.
Basically any entity in the game you interact with that is computer controlled (shop keepers, skill trainers, monsters, etc...)

Non-Playable (or non-player) Character. It''s exactly what it sounds like - characters of a game controlled by the computer AI rather than a person.
