Plot hooks you say? PC/NPC Extras! Characters

The bane of dungeon masters everywhere.  The party takes interest in what was, until that moment, a minor NPC.  Now suddenly they are stalking the person, asking one hundred questions, and putting more into the encounter than you ever dreamed of.  The best part, they are bringing to life some role-playing that you thought was thrown by the way side.  Only you don’t have a clue what to put together.

The best part of Extras!  They are inexpensive NPCs that are all ready for you, including motivations.

Take, for example, Zanat from the Extras!  Unusual Townfolk (for both 5E and Pathfinder).  He is a conman on the run.  He appears to be a powerful wizard. In truth, he uses magic items and his own minor capabilities to enact this illusion. His various schemes involve performing and selling “magical elixirs” to rich merchants and adventurers. Although he is hiding from the regional guards, he may take an interest in any strangers to the village.

Is your campaign a bit “taller” than that?  In our Extras! Mythic Giants (CR 15 to 20) for Pathfinder, Nernuk is the oldest of the leaders of the Imperium Gargantum. He joined the cause of Karakanos in hopes of establishing a lasting empire for all giants. He has seen the destruction caused by the advance of humanoids for over three centuries and has decided to strike back. Karakanos gives the old stone giant hope where previously there was none.

Guest post: Turning a Bat’leth Into a Demon

Turning a Bat’leth Into a Demon, by Chandra Reyer

A demon. A demon coming out of a portal was the assignment I got for a D3 Adventures supplement. I was being given a lot of freedom on this assignment, which is just amazing for an artist to get. I had so many ideas that went beyond the usual bat-winged, red skinned devilish demon most commonly depicted.

The title sounds like a magic trick, but for me as an illustrator and comic book artist, it’s just Wednesday. I’m not talking about drawing a bat’leth, that uniquely shaped weapon of the Klingons from Star Trek, and then turning that drawing into a demon. This was a real, metal bat’leth that had been used in stage fighting.

I had given the bat’leth to an actress friend of mine, who agreed that she would be a reference model for me in the future if I needed her. She didn’t specify for demonic purposes, but that’s what I needed. When I asked if she’d mind being a demon, she said yes immediately. Okay, maybe the affirmative was more enthusiastic and less PG than just “Yes”, but you get the idea.  Actors are great for models because they really get into the character. They do more than just pose in place. My demon had plans, ideas and an odd facial structure. My friend gave my demon intent, and some make-up which made her look less demonic, but like motion capture marking trackers would help me when it came time to make the face look less human.  What proceeded next was an hour of photography, improvisation, cardboard armor and what probably looked really insane to someone from the outside. That’s the best thing about being a fantasy artist, maybe an actor, too. The totally weird, un-glamorous things required to pull off something fantastic.

As an artist it’s important to never be a slave to any reference used. Yet, it’s equally important to use reference, because something an artist wouldn’t have thought of out of their head will come out of it. This painting became so much more than I had originally envisioned thanks to my friend.

All it had cost me was a Klingon weapon of destruction.

 

Qapla’!
