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.

The Ettin Games RPG Expo 2016

Saturday, July 30 at 10 AM – 11:30 PM in CDT

If you are in the greater Houston area and would like to demo some D3 products, please stop by!

Ettin Games and Hobbies
241 FM 1960 Bypass Rd E, Humble, Texas 77338

Come celebrate role-playing games with a focus on local designers and games less traveled! Since FREE RPG Day fell on the same day as Comicpalooza this year, we feel that folks may have missed out. We therefore are going to host our own RPG Day which will focus on local designers, who will be in attendance, and games that get less regular attention than D&D 5th Edition and Pathfinder. In other words, we want to open you up to some new possibilities, let you have a good time, and win some great prizes in the process!

Art by Lena DeGregory at Wizard World Convention

We are pleased to spotlight Lena D Artistry (Lena DeGregory to us).  Lena will be at Wizard World May 13-15, 2016, at the Iowa Events Center.

Lena has been on board with D3 Adventures for awhile now, doing the art for several of our Campaign Toybox products.  You can learn more about Lena by viewing her fancy page at Wizard World, and purchase her D3 Adventures products at Drive Thru RPG.

From Lena’s own words:

Self taught pencil artist who discovered the ability to draw at the age of 40! Picked up my first pencil to draw in February of 2014.

Fluffy little Hedwig my daughter asked me to do. Still working on getting her spots and such into her feathers.
Fluffy little Hedwig my daughter asked me to do. Still working on getting her spots and such into her feathers.

After attempting a drawing or two on my own, I sought out the aid of internet instruction and videos. You tube became a solid source and with the likes of Mark Crilley and My Drawing Tutorials, I learned to refine my portrait skills.

At this point in time, I am still using reference photos and such on most of my art work so many of the pictures I draw are not my own concepts, simply my skills applied to them.

While pencil/graphite is my preferred medium, I have begun to explore watercolor, colored pencil and pastels to bring color into my drawings.

Check out Romp! Adventure Tiles

Exclusively from Drive Thru RPG, Romp! Adventure tiles are now available as a physical product!  The tiles are the same design as currently available in PDF and PNG formats, but printed on a thick 6″ x 6″ card.

Our first product is Romp! Infested Sewers.  Beneath most cities are sewers crawling with disgusting creatures and evil humanoids. Romp! Infested Sewers brings these threats to life like never before. This package contains random encounter tables for both Pathfinder and 5th Edition. It also has 18, 6″ x 6″ maps, all 3D rendered and interchangeable, and complete room descriptions. These are included with printed 1″ lines for use on your gaming table and without lines as separate PNG files for use on virtual table top (VTT) gaming.

Here are some helpful tips for your printed map boards.

Do:
1. Dry erase markers work incredibly well on the coated boards. I write on mine regularly with a light color to stand out against the background. I intentionally left some writing overnight and it easily erased. I would test your markers on the included encounter tables first, but dry erase markers came off easily for me.
2. Clear tape can be used to hold your maps in place. In our experiments, we used the cheapest tape possible. It worked very well, but it left some residue on the map boards. It was not damaging, but it was visible if you looked very closely. Be careful, but it is a great option to avoid maps shuffling during play.
3. Use a lightly damp paper towel or washcloth to wipe up spills. I dropped some soy sauce on one of my boards and left it alone for about 20 minutes. A damp paper towel cleaned it up without a problem.

Don’t:
1. Wet erase markers do not work well on these boards. They appear to leave a stain in the coating. I was unable to completely erase a wet marker after only a few minutes of it drying on the board.
2. Folding the boards will bend them permanently. They are fairly light weight, but also thick enough to be effective. However, bending them significantly caused one of my boards to warp.
3. Although the boards are water resistant, I would refrain from bathing them. I have not tested this, but I am pretty sure they are also not dishwasher safe.

Due to the physical nature of the printed Romp! Adventure Tiles, these are available exclusively from Drive Thru RPG.
