When Quantum Collapse hit in Summer of 2016, it provided a new setting for Mutants and Masterminds to explore a variety of alternate earths. While exploring worlds where the Romans maintained power or the British, French, and Spanish colonies continued to fight, heroes were presented with unique obstacles and challenges. The Quantum Collapse team was not finished, however, and immediately began work on new heroes and new villains from additional alternate earths to oppose the heroes.
Quantum Collapse: WERWOLF should be available either late 2017 or early 2018. It focuses on a powerful group of super villains from World War II Germany who have survived underground for 70 years. Now they have reemerged, stronger and more powerful than ever. How will heroes handle this threat?
Quantum Collapse: The Patriot Squad will be available in 2018. When New Jersey officially sponsors a superhero team, called Turning Point, their adversaries, P.Y.T.H.O.N., begin to turn up the heat. Caught in the middle are a group of students with their own super problems.
As with Extras! Quantum Collapse Issue #0, expect some crossover products in other lines.
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
The Diamond District was in a shambles Monday night, after Protection League member Electrodeused 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, Electrodeleft 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.
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.
Now, for the deal… all of our Extras! are 50% off through the rest of Cyber Week from our website.
