Player-controlled NPC
As a GM can I assign control of an NPC to a player?

For instance, if a player retires and puts his PC out to pasture, he becomes an NPC. If some future group of PCs encounter this NPC, can I assign control to the original player of the former PC? (Whether or not the original player is in the group of current players.)

Has anyone done this? How'd it work out?

I have  done this a few times..lost some players    but  put the charcters in NPC  status..or just  put thier names  in when I posted for them..both work.

 if another player wants to  run that  character,go to the GMs   menu ..click on 'Edit Characters"... use the drop down to  pick the character...then go to " Moving  (existing )"  and  pick which player  you want it moved to.

 If you keep  CS  for  NPCs  and such...they'll then be able to see those sheets.
