Adventureaweek.com would like to proudly introduce Ronius the Fighter, Meeris the Cleric, Kale the Wizard, and Willow the Rogue. These four characters accompany the first adventure in the new BASIC-Series “A Learning Time” by Kevin Mickelson. Each of the characters are available to play as a pre-generated PC within this adventure, and future BASIC-Series adventure modules.
Kevin Mickelson was the creative mind behind these characters while Adventureaweek artist Tim Tyler brought them to life!
There is also the assumption that a significant portion of the target audience may be getting their first exposure to Pathfinder (and indeed tabletop RPGs!) through this module. Beginning players tend to appreciate some direction, and I wanted to provide some quirky and fun characters that are engaging enough to encourage roleplaying, yet arch-typical enough in personality that a lot of the tropes they represent will be easy to recognize.
These characters are also teenagers who are feeling the weight of expectation, and anyone who has played a team sport can imagine the pressure someone must feel when a slip-up could actually mean the difference between life and death for everyone involved!

Will you be making “pawns” for these characters? PDF or physical?
(hopefully of the same type that Paizo does: plastic slot base + thick card-paper hero)
There will in fact be a PDF version of them coming very soon, along with a few suggestions on print/assembly variations to get the most out of them.
We are looking to venture into the world of print here in the very near future, and the idea of including pawns of our custom creations and NPCs is on our short list of things we would like to be able to do.
Thanks to Joshua these BASIC-Series Pawns are now available to all Adventureaweek.com members! 😀
