A common problem in top-down RPG's, the Annoying Townsfolk is when game NP Cs with collision detection:

  • Actively seem to get in your way and prevent you from getting about.
    • In particular: doorways, the standing in thereof
  • Walk around randomly, particularly in small spaces
  • In the worst examples running into an NPC will cause you to enter conversation mode - meaning that not only do they get in your face and block your way, they start getting chatty.
  • Block you in and never let you leave.


  • Elona Certain NP Cs in towns will talk to you if you walk into them. This can make getting around a hassle.
