term refering to the job of one of the PCs
or "Player Characters" in a hunting party. A puller is usually a less powerful character who is very fast and/or good at hiding who almost always has special skills to attract the attention of an NPC
. If done properly, the player can "pull" an NPC or two away from a much larger group into the hands of the hunting party, saving the party from having to fight all of the NPCs at once, who might otherwise be able to kill the players.
"I think I see five demons and two dragons up ahead. I doubt we can take more then two at a time. Who is the puller?"
"Try to pull only one demon at a time. They are easier to kill then those dragons and give better loot."
