Do you know Jean Baum? Come inside for an introduction.
Jean is our youngest author and joined the D3 team for a special project. When we decided to create a product focusing on super-heroic teenagers, we needed someone who understood the trials and tribulations of modern adolescent from their point of view. We recruited a teenager to write the backgrounds of these heroines (NPC or PC characters). She turned fifteen just prior to the release of Extras! Schoolgirl Sidekicks, super-powered by M&M.
Jean has not had as much time to write as she did last year. Currently, she is attending college and should have her Associate’s Degree before she turns 17. She is also learning to drive, and in her usual gung-ho fashion, she started with a manual transmission in a car that is almost as old as herself. Even though it is summer, she is taking four college classes and is looking for a part-time job.
Jean still finds time to game with friends and usually plays Pathfinder twice per week. She also GM’s regularly and participates in several local conventions, including Salt Lake Gaming Con, Salt Lake Comic Con, Fan X, and SaltCon. At these events, she draws the attention of other young gamers and has helped spread the hobby to the next generation. If you ever want to boost the traffic to a booth at a convention of
gamers, just place a gaming-girl like Jean there.
