Handicapped NPCs

A few digests ago Simon reacted to something Jane Williams said, Jane then
went on to say that she knew of no handicapped NPCs - the three owners of
Gimpy's are all missing parts of their legs, okay so it's not a birth

defect, but it's still a handicap. There's also an NPC in the Grazepak with
a disease which means they build up copper in the pupils (I don't know what
this means in the RW other than make a person sterile, but in Grazepak it
gives them spirit sight).

However, one does have to be aware of 'tokenism' when brooching on subjects
like this and an 85 year old NPC with alzheimers & senile dementia borders
on the tasteless.
