Funny hat characterization random chart
Funny hat characterization is when you give a character a noticeable sign that makes them stand out. Commonly used as the first bit of description when that character is seen again later so the reader/player/viewer/whatever knows immediately who it is. So here is a random chart to let you roll up a bit of funny hat for an NPC or three.
1 – Severe overbite to the point where their eye teeth are constantly visible.
2 – Nose is crooked and bent from being broke multiple times.
