NPC is a term abbreviated from Non-Player Character.

This term is used for characters which are controlled by the game rather than being controlled by a real person. It is important to differentiate NPCs from Bots. Bots are used by players in order to achieve some goal of the player. Usually this goal is a repetitive action which would be difficult or tedious to achieve. NPCs on the other hand usually provided a service within the game such as working as a shop keeper, or being enemies which the player may gain experience from.

In Urban Dead there are no NPCs; all zombies and survivors are controlled by real people. As a Suggestion NPCs are usually ill received, typically resulting in the suggestion being Spaminated.
