Do You Know Curtis Baum?

Do you know Curtis Baum? Come inside for an introduction.

Today we take a look at Curtis Baum. He is easily the most prolific writer among the D3 Adventurers and it has earned him the title of Senior Line Developer. He has the helm on four product lines (Adventure!, Extras!, Romp!,  and Tangent!) with a fifth (Rcane’s Guides that are Pathfinder compatible and 5th Edition) on the way.

Curtis has been playing various role-playing games since he was a child. Initially starting with Dungeons and Dragons (boxed set), he quickly diversified to several different game systems.

His first published work was an internet fan collection which dated back to at least 1996, The Gallery of Magical Blades, where he contributed a holy sword. Since then, he has been a contributing author, author, and editor on over a dozen projects, most within the last 5 years. His list of credits is rather extensive, even before he started with D3 Adventures.

Today, he works from home and teaches his two daughters the fine art of gaming. He games an average of twice per week, including online. He currently plays Pathfinder, Shadowrun, and Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition. He organizes table-top gaming at Salt Lake Gaming Con, Salt Lake Fan X, and Salt Lake Comic Con in Utah, and attends several others.  He is always looking for a good game. His older daughter (Jean, and our next featured D3 Adventurer) is learning to drive, and going to community college full time. She is a GM in Pathfinder Society. His younger daughter just started learning to code HTML and CSS as a summer project. But she is really a ranger at heart with a great love for rabbits and cats.

Be sure to join us next Monday when we learn more about fledgling author; Jean Baum.

Do You Know Christi Baum?

Do you know Christi Baum? Come inside for an introduction.

Christi has had a long journey into the game industry and nerd-dom in general. Her launching off point for tabletop games happened in 1992 when she was introduced by her future husband, one Curtis Baum, more about him later. The duo traveled together through the realms that had been Forgotten, the world of the Dragonlance as well as long sessions Everquesting together. Now Christi works alongside Curtis as editor and layout artist and when not fixing Curtis’ grammar, she’s maintaining this very website and spreading the gospel of D3 Adventures across the social media sphere and making sure that our releases are properly uploaded to the various online stores.

To say that she has become an invaluable asset to the team would be an understatement.

Christi’s editorial and layout work can be seen throughout the Adventure!, Tangent!, Extras!, and Romp! product lines. In addition, she is currently working on the layout for the upcoming release of the PoD version of Quantum Collapse.

Be sure to join us next Monday when we learn more about our Senior Line Developer; Curtis Baum.

Weekly Ramble: SCIENCE!

Hi Everybody!

This week, I’d like to introduce our newest product line, SCIENCE!

“Science tells us the world is round and billions of years old.  Of course, science is lying.  It always lies.  The truth is, the world is flat.  And hollow.  And young.  And filled with glue.

Oh, science didn’t tell you about the glue?  Typical.  You should forget about science, and you should join us at SCIENCE! All of us at the Secret Committee to Investigate and Expose Non-Credible Explanations! make it our job to tell the Sheeple how it really is.  Think the continents are drifting? Ridiculous; it’s the oceans that are moving around. Think the moon landings were real?  How is that possible when the moon is fake?!  Think the dinosaurs are extinct?  Tell that to Phil the Allosaur; he’s right behind you.  What’s up, Phil.  Nice tie.

We’re not looking for people who believe what everybody else believes.  The world’s full of suckers like that.  We want the people who are different in their heads.  We want the hacktivists, the bloggers, and the militiamen.  We want the slackers, the wingnuts and the believers in the power of Woo.   If THEY say it’s crazy, it’s probably because it’s TRUE, and if it’s NOT then it OUGHT TO BE.  Join us, and we’ll show the Normals what’s what!”

SCIENCE! is a funny, fast-paced role-playing game set in a world where only the conspiracy theorists are sane.  Players use the MURICA! system of task resolution to rapidly create multiple characters who will stick their noses where they don’t belong, fight the Powers that Be and die hilarious deaths.  Learn what THEY don’t want you to know – for SCIENCE!

SCIENCE! is being developed by Andy Solberg, and should be available for purchase in 2016.
