Weekly Ramble: Upcoming Products

Hi Everybody!

We’ve got a lot of interesting stuff going on here at D3 Adventures right now.  Yesterday saw the release of the Universal Pool System: Quickstart Guide and a Demo module to run with it called Escape from the Lazurite Mines.  We’re pretty excited about that and hope everyone enjoys it.

Curtis Baum and his team have been hard at work, and in the next month, we have the first two full releases in the Extras! line:

The life of humanoids is never easy, especially if you have been exiled from your own people.  Unlikely Heroes for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game features five such heroes ranging from level 5-7. Including a crippled kobold, an orphaned goblin, and a scholarly hobgoblin, the members of the Redeemed adventuring party are ready to add to your campaign.


Every village has a few “colorful characters”, and Unusual Townfolk includes five for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. From a traumatized teen to a crazy old lady and everything in between, these level 3 to 5 citizens are ready to be added to your campaign.

And the latest release in the Tangents! Line:

Trade Wars takes the party on an adventure in the city of Ancient Port. Smugglers have been getting bolder and the party needs to deal with this growing threat. Trade Wars is useable in any fantasy campaign!

Joseph Davis, the developer of our Campaign Toybox line, is looking for more artists and writers for his products.  If you’re interested, and like working with Pathfinder, please contact him via email.

Stay tuned for these great products from the wordsmiths here at D3 Adventures.

Weekly Ramble: Players guide cover inks

Hi Everybody!

Today, we have something very special; the inked version of the cover art for the Universal Pool System Players’ Guide.  Our artist, Je Shields, has been working long hours in the pixel mines to bring you this wonderful piece.  So… without further ado:11692504_938115849565679_2276454662584972589_n



Awesome, right?  We’ll reveal the fully colored version in a later post, as well as the cover for the Campaign Companion.

Work on the Universal Pool books is moving along quickly.  I have my team working on the Shattered Earth setting now, while I work on polishing and finishing the text in the core rule books.

This month, we have two releases expected.  The first should be the Universal Pool System quickstart guide and introductory module, which I talked about last week.  The second is the first full release of Curtis Baum’s Extras! line, Unlikely Heroes for Pathfinder.  Stay tuned for more details on both.

Weekly Ramble: New products, Free RPG Day, And Avery Wells

Hi Everybody!

Exciting news this week.  Curtis Baum, the Line Developer of our Adventures! products, has a new sub-line he’s debuting this month.  The line is called Extras!, and it’s designed to provide GMs with new NPCs for use in their existing campaigns. These may include heroes or villains. The cover of each book in the Extras! line will denote the specific system for which it was designed. The books will generally be less than 20 pages and focus on one specific group united by a common theme. This could be either five characters with a similar theme or one character at several different challenge levels.

Here’s a look at the logo for the line:

Extras! will debut on DriveThruRPG on Free RPG Day, June 20th.  D3 will also have some other products available for free that day, so don’t miss it!

And on to our Contributor Spotlight.  This week, we’re talking about Avery Wells:

Avery Wells started gaming in 1978, when he was serving in the Army. His introduction to gaming, like many others, was Advanced Dungeons and Dragons, First Edition. One of the regular players of the Wargamer’s Club on the base saw him drawing fantasy and superhero art while at the recreation center and invited him to join. Most of those early games were of the hack-and-slash, or Monty Haul variety, but the group did more than just play AD&D; Star Frontiers, Top Secret, Boot Hill, and Gamma World all had their turn, as well as the original Traveller and others. Over the years and through other military postings he enjoyed playing other games with other groups. He was always willing to explore new avenues of gaming, but it wasn’t until he had been discharged from the Army that he was introduced to Champions, a game he has continued to enjoy to this day.

Later in life he decided to return to art school, and received an Associates Degree in Graphic Design. Thus far he has done only a few freelance jobs in the game industry, such as the weapon illustrations for D3 Adventures’ Kamarathin world setting book. He is currently working as a freelance writer, designer and illustrator, as well as working on his own personal projects.

That’s all for now, folks.  See you again next week.
