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 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.
