Free20: Troublemaker


Free20: The Troublemaker Template is a
free Otherverse Games product, suitable for
inclusion in almost any D20 based campaign.
The concepts in this book are as applicable to
dungeon crawls as they are modern action
campaigns. Special attention is given to using
this template in Psi-Watch and Otherverse
America campaigns.

While working on the Otherverse America
core rulebook last month, I took advantage of
the after Christmas sales to purchase some new
DVDs. Among my purchases was the Star
Wars: Clone Wars animated DVD, which
introduced a new character to that venerable
universe: the sarcastic, enthusiastic young Jedi
Ashoka Tanu. While Ashoka was had a unique
name and a unique look, I realized how familiar
she was to me. Ashoka was Jubilee or Kitty
Pryde or Carrie Kelly (the Dark Knight’s
Robin) repackaged and redecorated, but still
instantly recognizable, and still enjoyable as a

All the fictional girls mentioned above share
certain traits: all petite, nimble females, all
sarcastic and quick-witted, all running on nerve
and bravado, all anxious to be taken seriously
by their larger, more experienced male partners,
and none of ‘em exactly
as tough or competent as they think they are.

The Troublemaker Template helps gamers
build young heroines who fit the tropes of the
fictional girls who inspired the template. This easy to-
attach template rewards players for fully embracing
this character concept, keeps them alive in the
face of overwhelming opposition (at least hopefully),
and adds a handful of appropriate new weaknesses
right out of the comic books.

So outside of a couple of *bad examples (assuming you know or even care about comics) which are a tiny little niggle that quite frankly doesn't matter on the whole, this is an excellent product even outside of it's intended usage of the creator's setti [...]

Though meant primarily for the Otherverse America setting, this template is actually pretty adaptable to any d20 Modern or d20 Fantasy setting, and that includes any game using the Pathfinder RPG system. Heck, I've been using this template in my own d2 [...]

I just downloaded this product and read through it. I feel they have captured the feel they were going for and I might add a NPC with this template to my game at some point. For a free download it's hard to go too wrong and while this isn't for everyon [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
