Many articles on this website are about relatively minor things, from hay bales to needles. We encourage gathering information on even the minutest scale. All items, non-player characters (NPCs), quests, whatever, are worthy of their own article, except in special cases where it is decided to combine or delete an article by consensus.
Consensus has shown that "NPC" in this context is defined to be any character whose control is automated by the RuneScape software (as opposed to human players and macros). Whilst most NPCs have common features (such as their name appearing as yellow text in-game) and interactivity options (for example, players are usually able to attack or talk to NPCs as a minimum), characters who do not have these features are still worthy of their own article, even though they are not interactive.
Currently the only two major exceptions are player articles and non-interactive scenery.
- Non-interactive scenery
- Actual players (per RS:PLAYERS)
