Tickling Your Thoughts – Story development Superhero style

Super Powered by M&M Campaign Setting Quantum Collapse

The Diamond District was in a shambles Monday night, after Protection League member Electrode used his powers to thwart a heist. A group of masked thugs armed with military grade weapons charged into one of the street level diamond dealers on north side of 47th street. None of the three employees inside the small shop were seriously injured in the attack, though all were bound with duct tape and the same type of heavy-duty zip ties issued to the New York City Corrections Department. The robbers moved through the store, pulling safes and display cases out with their bare hands, and tossing them into a large rental truck out front. Before the NYPD could arrive on the scene, Electrode, the well-known masked vigilante appeared and began wrecking havoc in the street. After a brief battle between the super strong robbers and the electrically charged crime-fighter the street covered in broken glass, smashed truck parts, and the glint of loose diamonds. After the fight, Electrode left the battered and smoldering criminals to be dealt with by the police while he held an impromptu press conference on the street. Neither this reporter nor any of the others from major news sources was able to get a question answered by the so-called hero, however lifestyle and celebrity gossip reporters were able to pose several questions. For further details, see Jose Valdez’s report in the Celebrity Hero Watch section in the City Living section of this paper.

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.

Preview of Quantum Collapse, for use with M&M

To celebrate International Table Top Day, here is a sneak peak of one villains in QUANTUM COLLAPSE, due out Tuesday.
DISCO-rd. She’s a pretty silly, “Batman-66” style villain, but she was fun to develop. While Herr Stahl, Mastermynd, and the others tend to be a bit more gritty and serious, DISCO-rd is a villain who provides a bit of comic relief, along with her sonic mayhem.
For play with Mutants and Masterminds
Donna Devereaux was a young, mild mannered music history student. Early one morning, while pulling an all-nighter before finals, Donna fell asleep with her headphones on, her face falling into her textbook. A sudden, unexplained power surge (a Quantum Collapse manifestation) ripped through the dorm building, blowing fuses and bursting light bulbs. The electrical power flowed through Donna’s stereo, between the headphones, and into her brain!
The flood of electricity reorganized her brain, granting her powers beyond the ken of regular humans but also drove her mad. Donna was no longer content to be a poor, struggling student researching the music of the past; she wanted to be rich, famous, and make the music of the FUTURE!
DISCO-rd is brash, bold, and narcissistic, just like the music that she loves. She embodies the self-centered hedonism of 70’s disco. The electrical shock to Donna’s brain gave DISCO-rd telekinetic powers. She can manifest these powers as either a blast of sonic power she calls Musical Disco Dynamite, or as a hypnotic, distracting pattern of shifting colored lights she calls Video Lightshow.
