Pregenerated Player Characters

These are the Pregenerated Characters that I've created for use in my convention games. I'm presenting them in the order of the P.C.C. listings as presented the main book. P.C.C.'s from other books will be located at the bottom.
Note: All of my Beyond the Supernatural™ games are based in Seattle, Washington which the character sheets make references to at times.

Image of Charlie Manumaleuna

Charlie Manumaleuna

Charlie is a 35-year-old Psychic Diviner and Taxi Driver. He's as proud of his Samoan heritage as he is to be retired Navy, making two tours of duty as a helicopter and jet pilot. After seeing a lot of the world in the Navy, he's since settled in Seattle, enjoying his time between playing World of Warcraft, working on his Taxi, and investigating the paranormal.

Charlie has been a favorite pregen at gaming con's & Palladium Open House outings. Players really get into his “Just Hang Loose” attitude, his being a giant teddy bear of a man with a soft spot for kids and a pretty face, and everyone loves how the removable steering wheel in his taxi can be converted into his favorite dowsing rod. Most players act out steering it like he's driving a car while tracking something.

The image of Charlie is Pedro Miguel Arce, who played the Samoan survivor Pillsbury in the Land of the Dead movie (a favorite flick of mine).

Image of Crystal Dravucz

Crystal Dravucz

Crystal is a 25-year-old Psychic Diviner and Gardener/Landscaper. Crystal grew up in a farming community in north Idaho, and has always had a fondness for farming, gardening, camping, and great outdoors in general. She's as self-reliant and adventurous as she is protective and defensive of others.

Image is from one of the Women of the Brigade models from thechive.com.

Illustration of Emilia by Brandon C. Clark

Emilia Sonalii Selena Fernandez

Emilia is a 27-year-old Fire Walker and Professional Fire Performer, singer and musician. Emilia grew up in a traveling carnival show in Mexico. When her father was murdered by a Brawling Joe simply for being in the wrong place at the wrong time, Emilia hunted him all the way to Seattle to find and kill it.

After taking nearly a year to find it, shes gotten to like the Seattle bohemian lifestyle and has since decided to stay. She continues to perform her fire routines she learned back home and has become a contributing member of the Lazlo Society.

Emilia's illustration is another fine example of Brandon C. Clark's quality of work, especially considering that I asked him to illustrate her in a rush for use at a gaming convention that weekend. Her look of determination could be seen as concentrating of her fire performing or it could be that she's attacking an unseen supernatural creature. Either way, I think he portrayed her fiery spirit well!

Image of Mark O'Conner

Mark O'Connor

Mark is a 30-year-old Fire Walker & Firefighter who's not afraid to put his life on the line daily; whether it be a fiery inferno or against the supernatual. His good ol' boy attitude and his cowboy swagger always makes his a fun pregen to use at conventions and the Palladium Books Open House.

Brandon C. Clark's illustration of Mark was an instant favorite of mine; he captured Mark's bravery, spirit and determination incredibly well.

Image of Anita Burkett

Anita Burkette

Anita is a 24-year-old Gifted Clothing Designer and Fashion Model. Anita grew up in a disciplined but loving family in the heart of Seattle. Anita was the apple of her parent’s eye, encouraging and enriching the artistic genius she displayed early on.

Perhaps as a spoke of her genius mind, Anita absorbed the best of both her parents. Her mother fostered her creative talents and sense of style (she’s been the owner and manager of a beauty salon for nearly twenty years) as well as her natural beauty.

As a daddy’s girl, she absorbed her daddy’s strong sense of discipline, high moralist character, and a fascination for investigating the paranormal. Her image came from a Second Life fan site I think.

Image of Jill Wagner

Leeza Petulengro

Leeza is a 28-year-old Natural Athlete and Bounty Hunter. Leeza was born into a family of traveling Gypsies, and hated the lifestyle. As soon as she was old enough she left, living by the seat of her pants until she discovered bounty hunting. Even better was when she realized that she has a talent for it, and has been doing it ever since.

The image of Leeza is of actress Jill Wagner, and the images on her character sheet are from both the Blade and the Teen Wolf TV shows (ironically I've not watched either show).

Thumbnail of Moses Magnum

Minister Moses Magnum

Moses Magnum is a 34-year-old Ghost Hunter and Southern Baptist Church Minister. Moses is a very honorable and spiritual man, striving to do god's work, spreading his gospel to the people and slaying in supernatural whenever he finds them, sending them back to the hell they came from. Moses is also currently training a young Ghost Hunter named Roxy Rowe (see below).

The image above came from the Blade TV show.

thumbnail of Roxy Rowe

Roxy Rowe

Roxy Rowe is a 19-year-old Ghost Hunter,
a part-time security guard at Obsidian Labs, and a full-time student from a loving, spiritual family in Bellevue, WA. Currently she's undergoing training to be a more capable supernatural hunter under the guidance of Minister Moses Magnum.

Illustration by Brandon C. Clark, who depicted her as posing for charitable fund raiser calendar (publicly, Obsidian Labs is known as a charitable, caring and humanitarian company). The caption on the calendar reads “Obsidian Labs: our security is better looking”.

Image of Emma Walker Pregen

Emma Jean Walker

Emma is a 13-year-old Latent Psychic and High School Student. A few years ago, Emma was kidnapped and nearly eaten by a Bogey Man, but was rescued by her father (a well known Psi-Mechanic in the Lazlo Agency). Shes been developing psychic abilities ever since. She loves her psychic abilities and has recently been taking an academic approach to learning more about the paranormal and the supernatural.

Her father recently suffered multiple fractures in his left leg after dealing with a particularly brutal supernatural monster. Wanting to prove herself, she's been sneaking out of the house with his Psi-Devices to help the Lazlo Agency in his place.

Emma is one of my oldest pregen's; I don't recall where I got her image from (probably favim.com).

thumbnail of Brian DuChamp

Brian DuChamp

Brian DuChamp is a 40-year-old Ordinary Human and Novelist of supernatural horror and mystery novels. He prefers to go by his pen name, “Malcolm Witts”.

Yes, there's a lot of inspiration from the Castle TV show going on here (the image should look familiar). But in my defense, I wrote Brian up when it was a new show and full of potential, before all the potential and possibility were wasted over the years. I think where I went with this character is much more fun.

Note: This PDF has been updated as of November of 2012. If you uploaded this awhile ago, it might be time to update.

image of Vigo De Luigi

Ludovigo De Luigi

Ludovigo (“Vigo”) De Luigi is a 42-year-old Ordinary Human and a Deli/Meat Shop owner. Vigo used to be a great and proud man, but has been on a downward spiral since the loss of his son (who was taken by a Bogey Man).

Vigo was one of my earliest pregens (in the first five I think), and he's still one of my personal favorites. I especially enjoy watching players act out and play the near suicidal tendencies he's currently going through in his vendetta of slaying monsters.

This is another old image; I'm not sure who the artist is (I think he's done work for World of Darkness), but I found it somewhere on deviantart.com.

Image of Sam LaFontaine

Sam LaFontaine

Sam LaFontaine is a 27-year old Ordinary Human and Professional Hit man. His cover is a High School Shop Teacher. Sam was born into a family of small time criminals, and while he cant seem to escape his family's criminal orientation, he strove to become a high class one.

Having met his goal of making a nice living as a hired killer, Sam's gotten to where he's able to pick his contracts, finding some comfort in that he only kills people who have it coming to them (low life killers, rapists, child molesters, etc.) But hunting the supernatural has recently become a personal vendetta after losing his brother to Hell Hounds.

Sam has seen a lot of play time at gaming conventions and the Palladium Open House over the years. Something about a professional hit man with a vendetta against the supernatural in his spare time just appeals to people. The image above is another one I've been using for years, and so I don't recall where I got it from.

image of Dr. Corbin Romance

Dr. Corbin Romance

Dr. Romance is a 27-year-old Parapsychologist, the oldest of two boys from a low-income, single parent family in Phoenix, Arizona. In spite of his tough childhood, Corbin grew up compassionate and curious, blessed with a brilliant mind. Accelerated several times in grade school, Corbin graduated high school at only fourteen years old with a full scholarship to the University of Arizona.

In College he planned on becoming a scientist before discovering the paranormal, becoming fascinated by it. Following his fascination, he became a Parapsychologist.

Corbin's good looks have become a double edged sword to him however; his private funding is in truth funded by a wealthy widower who sees him as a 'boy toy'. As other colleagues in the paranormal field have caught on and started to talk, his reputation as a Parapsychologist has been tarnished, perhaps permanently.

Image of Rebecca Hall

Dr. Angela Jean Strauss

Dr. Angela Jean Strauss (“Ajax”) is a 32-year-old Military Scientist and the only child in a family of proud military scientists. She grew up a gifted military brat, traveling all over the globewhile absorbing everything like a sponge and graduating with a Doctorate in Psychology, Biology and Chemistry by the age of twenty-one.

Dr. Strauss is currently working undercover for the U.S. Military as a Parapsychologist. Her current mission: Investigate the Supernatural while keeping tabs on the psychics and mages involved in both the Lazlo Society and Lazlo Agency, determining the potential military applications of both the supernatural and the investigators.

It's rare that I do this, but I had a specific person in mind when I created Angela, actress Rebecca Hall. I dig her lots and find her to be a very under appreciated actress (see the BTS worthy movie The Awakening for an example of just how good she is).

Image of Callie Rodenburg

Callie Rodenburg,
A.K.A. “The Huntress

Callie is a 20-year-old Physical Psychic and Exotic Dancer & Bartender. As with the flashy nature of physical psychics, Callie is a very outgoing, outspoken party girl type who works hard and plays hard, enjoying her life to the fullest. Those who are familiar with "The Huntress" on the lazlosociety.org (one of my user name's on the site) should recognize her.

Image used is adult film star Jessie Jane, who I think meets the visual expectations of an exotic dancer with a high physical beauty.

Image of Dmitri Borskowitz

Dmitri Borskowitz

Dmitri is a 29-year-old Physical Psychic and Construction Worker. Originally from Mother Russia, he was effectively indentured into working for the Russian mob in New York before eventually escaping and making his way to the other end of the country in Seattle.

As a physical guy, he was created as a pretty straight forward defensive PC who uses big weapons and acts as a meat shield to the other pregen's.

I don't recall where the image came from, but I think he's a Russian body builder.

Image of Cartlon Gude

Carlton Gude

Carlton is a 41-year-old Psi-Mechanic and auto & boat repair mechanic. Carl was born into a hard working family that proudly claims six generations of building and working in Seattle.

Carl is a model of the hard working man, only recently becaming involved in paranormal investigating after his mother was attacked (and nearly killed) by some creature of the night. He now investigates the paranormal and build his psi-devices to keep his family safe from the supernatural while enjoying the use of his newly discovered psychic talents.

Character illustration by the great Brandon C. Clark.

Illustration for Claire de Veilmond

Claire de Veilmond

Clair de Veilmond is a 25-year-old Psi-Mechanic and Computer Technician. Claire lived in a white collar family in a nice part of town until her father was busted for being part of an embezzlement ring at the accounting firm he worked with.

No longer able to afford the lifestyle, Claire's mom moved into with an aunt in a rough part of Seattle. The culture shock and bullying that came with the move forced Claire to toughen up quickly, taking self defense classes and finding the confidence to stand her ground.

After high school & college, Claire became a computer technician, and she's good at it. Today she's self employed, self reliant and always ready to prove her mettle against the supernatural as a Psi-Mechanic.

The image used is one I've used for years, and I don't know where it came from.

Image of Jim Beavers

Jim Beavers

Jim Beavers is a 48-year-old Psychic Healer and Competitive Fisherman & Outdoorsman.

As you might have guess by the image, I'm a fan of the Supernatural TV show (ten points to your geek score if you knew that Jim Beavers is his real name). Funny thing is that when I created this character, I had no intention of Jim being the avatar. But the more I wrote up this character, the more Jim kept coming to mind as to what he looks like. And since the character is an outdoorsman, the last name also seemed appropriate, so I used it. Mr. Beavers, your a true muse... don't ever change!

Note: Jim's PDF has been updated as of June of 2013. If you've not uploaded this PDF in some time, it might be due.

image of Sister Anna Dvorak

Sister Anna Dvorak

Sister Anna is a 36-year-old Psychic Healer, Catholic nun and exorcism specialist to the Vatican.

I cant take all of the credit on creating this one; a lot of the credit belongs to one of my players and gal-pal Angie, who's one of the best character creators (and role players) I've ever known. Anna was an NPC she asked me to consider creating for her player character to interact with, and have as a contact, and I liked her so much that I completely fleshed her out as a pregen character.

The image is a stock photo; don't recall where I found it.

Image of Justin VanBuskirk

Justin VanBuskirk

Justin VanBuskirk is a 25-year-old Psychic Medium and Computer Programmer. His Spirit Guide (named Rain Louise Foster) was a Spiritualist in life and was also Justin's Great Aunt. Justin had a rough childhood and was on a bad road, but after his Aunt Rain appeared, she became his mentor and guide in many ways, helping Justin become a good man.

His image is another free picture from favim.com.

Thumbnail of Lacey Sullivan

Lacey Sullivan

Lacey Sullivan is an 18-year-old Psychic Medium who's currently attending college at the University of Seattle. Her Spirit Guide is a pioneer from the 1800's and is also her great, great grand uncle.

If memory serves, both the ghost and the girl images came from a free picture site (and were merged together using Photoshop), but I couldn't tell you where.

Thumbnail of Conrad Timmons

Conrad Lee Timmons

Conrad Timmons is a 29-year-old Psychic Sensitive and Professional Psychic Investigator.

I got a challenge request ages ago to try creating a psychic sensitive that kicks mucho ass. From the movies and TV shows that I've seen, sensitive's are not ass kickers by nature, so this was a challenge I wasn't sure I could successfully pull off without him being overly macho and manly to the point of being unrealistic. Then one day I was toying around with building a character and I rolled a LOT of high physical attributes, and I got to thinking that if I was to create a tough sensitive, this would be the time. As the psychic abilities, skills and gear were being added, a character idea and history started to take shape, and in the end I think he turned out pretty good.

The image used is a character named Captain Xavier Jones from the Clive Barker's Jericho video game. I've never played the game (I hear it stinks), but the image fits the tough but sensitive look I was going for.

Image of Rajesh Kumar Manjhi

Rajesh Kumar Manjhi

Rajesh is a twenty 28-year-old Psychic Sensitive and Artist & Craftsman. Rajesh is very attuned to the supernatural, and has learned to embrace it. His sensitive abilities also enhance his skills as an artist.

I updated and posted Rajesh before other pregens that were waiting in line as a response to my Palladium pal & one of the 1st real fans of my BTS writing Dave Watkins, who ALWAYS plays Rajesh at the Palladium Books Open House events.

Sensitive's are an important part of any BTS adventure,but they're the hardest type to role play. Not only does Dave bravely accept the challenge of playing a sensitive, he plays one better than anyone I've seen. This one's for you Dave!

Illustration by the ever impressive Brandon C. Clark.

Image of Sakura Ikeda

Sakura Ikeda

Sakura is a 20-year-old Psychic Sensitive and Psychic Professional. Sakura was raised in a Zen Buddist temple located in rural Iowa, where her father is the priest of the temple. While she's proud to be Buddist and seeks enlightenment, Sakura has chosen to follow her own path to find it.

Sakura is also from a powerful ancestry with a long history of seers and shaman's and she's chosen to follow in their footsteps. It was an obvious choice that she'd become a professional psychic, using her mystical upbringing, her flair for the dramatic and her psychic abilities to be a successful one.

I've used this image for years and I do not recall where it came from.

illustration of Amanda Castenada

Amanda Castenada

Amanda is a 22-year-old Lucky Psychic (see The Rifter #53) and Navigational Systems Engineer. Amanda grew up in a tough neighborhood that regularly suffered from the supernatural. As a recourse, a few of her neighbors, friends, and even her brothers were even part of a self imposed neighborhood watch program to protect them from it.

But even with the neighborhood watch to keep an eye on things, both of her brothers were killed by the supernatural when she was eleven. Their deaths have motivated her to investigate the paranormal and destroying the supernatural whereever she finds it.

This image is another I found years ago, on deviantart.com I think.

Player Characters

This section is dedicated to Player Characters that have been donated by BTS fans!

Note: I have an excel character sheet that I use to create my pregens & NPC's. I'm willing to send the form to anyone that wants it... on one condition.

For this site to be a fan site, I need fan involvement; so on the honor of the player or GM, I ask that they send me their creations for all to muse over and enjoy.

If you'd like this sheet, send me a note via the Contact Me section of this site or the Palladium Forums (my user name is Mrloucifer).

Image of Henry Johnson

Henry Johnson

The honor of first Player Character submitted to the House of BTS goes to Troy “Dolcet” Brock. Henry Johnson is Sword Bearer from Nightbane (Nightlands, page 20) and an Antiquities Consultant. While I hadn't considered the Sword Bearer O.C.C. for BTS before, I really like the idea of this O.C.C. as much as I do Henry's character as a whole. Take out the verbiage of The Nightlords and putting The Supernatural in its place, and you've got a BTS worthy O.C.C. with little alteration required.
Henry is the possessor of “Shamshir”, a Greatest Artifact that became bonded to him after he discovered its resting place (within the hidden tomb of Genghis Khan) by accident. Since then, he's been traveling the world for over forty years, working as a consultant while slaying the supernatural where he finds it.
    The depiction of Henry is none other than Bob Newhart, this particular picture coming from The Librarian TV movies (which are all Indiana Jones inspired, BTS worthy fun TV shows that's worth watching if you ever get the chance.)
    Thanks for the submission Troy, Henry is welcome in my house!
image of Svetlana Dementyeva

Svetlana “Sparks” Dementyeva

Submitted by Warren “Hibik” Davis, Svetlana ("Lana") is a 23-year-old American-Russian Fire walker, Musician & Part-Time Bartender. As is commonplace for Fire Walkers, Lana is a passionate woman, especially when it comes to music, cars, motorcycles, and politics. When not involved in a paranormal investigation, she can be found trying to make it big in the music business, and hanging out with other paranormal enthusiasts.
Not sure where the image came from, most likely she's a “Suicide Girl” model (she has that "look" and it works well to Lana's description). Its a great first submission from Warren, and I look forward to more from him!
Image of Cassie Chadwick

Cassie Chadwick

Cassie Chadwick is a player character that's near and dear to my heart. Cassie came from the mind of one of my favorite players (Shannon), and she created Cassie using my “Lucky Psychic” P.C.C. from the Rifter #53. After playing her for a few levels, Shannon wanted to try a different character, asking me to add Cassie to my list of available player characters. Cassie now lives on as an available Pregen at my con games, and with those of you who'd like to add her to your list of characters/NPC's.
Model is unknown.

image of Beth Melrose

Elizabeth “Beth” Melrose

Submitted by Warren “Hibik” Davis, Elizabeth (“Beth”) Melrose is a 27-year-old Psychic Sensitive and Religious Scholar, specializing in esoteric, mystical and religious lore; often consulted for both her academic expertise and her psychic powers. Early in life she planned to become a nun, but life had other ideas in mind for her.

She's a really interesting character, one that I wish I'd created myself. Nice work Hibik, cant wait to see what's next! Art and artist is unknown.
Image of Yegor Golovchenko

Yegor Golovchenko

This player character was commissioned by BTS fan and friend Scott Gastineau. Yegor is a 36-year-old Priest of Vice P.C.C. who's an evangelist and an agent of the Court of Tarot. The Priest of Vice P.C.C. was written by Scott (who also wrote the incredibly good “Court of Tarot” article in the Rifter #45), and the write up is located over at fellow fan site
Nexus Nine
(link to P.C.C. details).
I had a lot of fun creating Yegor, I think he's one of the most complex and intriguing characters I've ever created. There are two character sheets for him, one which depicts him during a period of Vice, the other during a period of Virtue.
The two images on the character sheets are of Russian actor Vladimir Mashkov.
thumbnail of Zain Lomax

Zain Lomax

Zain Lomax is a 35-year-old Psychic Diviner and Bounty Hunter. Zain has spent most of his adult life as a warehouse laborer and public nuisance, hanging out with thieves, bikers and truckers for friends. He's only been a bounty hunter for about a year and has discovered the supernatural only within the last three months, ergo his low XP level.
This character was created for an online play-by-play game with my good pal and fellow BTS fan Scott Gastineau. And yes, the image I used for Zain is Francis from the Left 4 Dead games.
Image of Mercades Kingsolver

Mercedes Lee Kingsolver
Madison Jane Kingsolver

Mercedes and Madison Kingsolver were commissioned characters, and I've set them up as a package here as they're sisters. Mercedes is an Autistic Psychic Savant Player Character/NPC, while Madison an Ordinary Human NPC and her assistant during paranormal investigations.

Mercedes grew up in a very loving household, and started to develop her Savant abilities around age twelve. Her talents might have gone unrealized has it not been for her doctor and her nurse (both of whom are paranormal enthusiasts and members of the Lazlo Society). She's now starting to use her talents as a Paranormal Investigator.

Image of Madison Kingsolver
Madison is a very paternal, protective and caring person by nature. Not surprising then that while Madison is proud of her sister and genuinely wants her to use her talents to help others, shes not a paranormal enthusiast, and doesn't like taking her sister to the haunted and/or dangerous places and situations her job takes them.
But Mercedes cannot do her job without her, and Malison's seen first hand that her sisters abilities make a genuine difference in the world, and her autism is much less severe when she's investigating the paranormal/supernatural. Madison is currently a waitress while attending nursing school to better assist Mercedes in her line of work.

The images came from the Rose Red TV movie, which I happened to have watched around the same time as I wrote up these character up, so I kinda went with the similar vibe or the characters on the show.

Beyond the Supernatural 3-D character portraits by Mike Leonard

Freelancer artist and pal Mike "Madman" Leonard created several BTS character images for a con game at the Visioncon 2012 in Missouri. As I'm only 2-3 hours drive away from there, I wanted to attend, but it didn't work out (too much stuff happening at home that weekend). However, Mike has graciously allowed me to post his work on my site (thanx again Madman). I've also spoken to GM who created these characters, who said he'll send me the character sheets as time permits. I will post them below as I get them.
I also added in the Randolph Mansion (from the 1st edition BTS book adventure), the BTS Arcanist and Pink Cadillac as the gal would make a good BTS character image (and they evened out my rows of four). So click on the thumbnails to go to the full sized images on his deviantART page.
P.S. Be sure to see Mike's other artworks as he's made plenty of great 3-D portraits!

Non-Player Characters

This folder is dedicated to Non-Player Characters, which are characters that are not played by the characters, such as the villains and other player characters played by the game master.

Image of NPC Kyna Brennan

Kyna Brennan

Kyna is an NPC from Ben Barton's home game, submitted to the house for other BTS GM's to make use of. Kyna is a Sorceress from the Nightbane RPG, who became involved in the arcane arts after discovering a book of spells her great aunt kept hidden away until her death. Kyna is now cautiously trying to learn spells from the book while learning more about the arcane world in general. This has led her to becoming a member of the Lazlo Society, hoping to find other magic users. Image is Ukrainian singer Mika Newton, found in Hellionmag.com.
Image of common thug

Common Thug

I've had a Common Thug sheet stashed in my NPC folder for years now and finally got around to converting it into a PDF and adding it here. These are quick & dirty stats of hired muscle and goons for the GM. I don't recall where the images came from, but I think they're from a video game.

Image of Dr. Edmond Smythe

Dr. Edmond Smythe

Dr. Smythe is an important NPC in both my home & con games (most of the pregens have him as a contact). In convention games I include him as an NPC when no ones playing a Parapsychologist, same with my home game.

History wise, Edmond is a retired Psychologist who works part-time as a Docere at the Seattle Museum of History. His involvement with the supernatural began over forty years ago while working with several patients who'd been traumatized by the supernatural in some way. Edmond began researching the paranormal as a method of deducing ways of helping his patients. In the process, he learned just how real and dangerous the supernatural is while becoming more and more involved in paranormal enthusiast circles, eventually joining the Lazlo Agency when it first formed in the late 80's. He's still involved as a lead in the Seattle area.

Dr. Smythe is an ideal NPC as he's full of knowledge and advice, but isn't able to get into the foreground much due to his knees going bad (walks with a cane) and requiring a pace maker (supernatural-related injury). He's usually available via radio contact during the dangerous portions of a paranormal investigation, but he's reluctant to get involved directly (unless its a dire situation).

The illustration of Dr. Smythe is from the amazingly talented artist Brandon C. Clark who really captured the vibe and look of Edmond that I was going for.
The unique equipment he carries is from the "Condemned: Criminal Origins" video game. While the forensic tools were redesigned for BTS use, they still share some similarities to their counterparts.
Note: Condemned is a great game for BTS inspiration, so go check it out!
Image of Lisa McGloiry

Lisa McGloiry

Lisa McGloiry is a Forensic Scientist/Ordinary Human who works with one of the player characters (Simon) in my current weekly game. The player does a great job with playing Simon as a very shy, quiet, stuttering type... especially around women.
So naturally, Lisa was designed to have some fun with this, and over time perhaps help him out of his shell a little as she is a witty, outgoing, talkative type. I haven't considered a romance angle or anything like that, but the possibility is there. She's also not aware of the supernatural at this point. Image origin is unknown.
Image of Zenna Zach

Jenna Zach

Jenna is a friend of one of my player's past character's (Frankie). Jenna was designed to be someone that Frankie could go dancing and have fun with, or unwind over wine with, and was basically her "normal/non-psychic friend".
Of course as the game went on, Jenna was eventually stolen by a supernatural fiend, and Frankie & the group came to her rescue. This sheet represents Jenna just starting to learn about the world of the supernatural, and her becoming a closer friend to Frankie through their mutual interest in the supernatural. Image was scanned from a "tattoo" magazine years ago.
Image of Hiemdall Erickson

Heimdall Erickson

One of my BTS colleagues suggested that I should place one of my favorite NPC's from my home campaign on this page. While it’s a fun idea, I’m a tad concerned that my regular weekly players might read Heimdall's info and ruin some of the spoilers I have planned for them in the future.

So this is a warning to my weekly players: DO NOT CLICK ON HEIMDALL!
But for the rest of you, enjoy! :)
Heimdall is a Latent Psychic and Carpenter/Construction worker who claims to be a demigod, specifically a son of Odin, ruler of Asgard (of Norse Mythology). He tends to show up and help the group at random times, claiming that Odin communicates with him via dreams, warning him of a new supernatural menace in the area. He's also been seen talking to seemingly random crows on occasion.
Note: I may update this info as Heimdall evolves in my game, and maybe provide more details on the Devil Ghost, its familiars and the Psi-Mechanic mentioned in his details once I've fully fleshed them out. Also note that when I chose Heimdall's image, I had no idea that it was based on a demigod character from the Scion RPG from White Wolf. I'm not surprised by this in retrospect as it depicts a red haired young man who could pass as Thor's son and has crows flying around him. I'm sure this imagery inspired Heimdall's creation in some way.
The illustration is by Michael Komarck.

Character Commissions

After getting several requests for these in the last few months, I've decided to offer my services as a character creator. But as my time is important (and I could use the help for buying school books), I've got to make it a service. In short, you can not only help out this starving writer and Full-Time college student, you can commission a great Player Character or Non-Player Character for use in your BTS games!

In hiring my services, you'll get:
-A fully fleshed out Player Character (or Non-Player Character if needed), created with the same quality I put into all of my Pregens and NPC's.
-I'll create your character to the specifications you need for your game (P.C.C. type, Occupation, name, specific Contacts, specific attributes, psychic abilities, weapons, level of experience, etc.) and I'll insert whatever illustration or image you'd like to use with this character.
-I'll create your character by the canon rules of the BTS game or by using whatever house rules your game might have.
-You'll get both a copy of character via the excel file I that I use to create the Pregens & NPC's on this site (allowing you to update the character as he/she goes up in levels) as well as a PDF copy of the character.
-If you need help with updating your character as he/she advances, I'll be happy to help you out with it.

And you can get all of this for only $15.00 per each character that's created to be exclusively yours forever, or for $10.00 Ill create the character with the same quality, and once finished I reserve the right to post it onto the walls of the House of BTS.

My commissions thus far have been pretty cool and were created to be used with the pregenerated characters and NPC's I've added to this page already. If your using my pregens/NPC's as part of your main cast, commissioned characters would be great to fill out whatever gaps your cast is missing.

If your interested, please send me a message via the Contact Page to get started.
Note: I'm not getting rich off of this service by any means, these funds are going to help me pay for college books and supplies (and I could really use the help).

The Supernatural

This section is dedicated to the home made creatures/monsters/predators/demons and other things that go bump in the night!

The Orgathu by Francisco Chavez

The Orgathu

The Orgathu is a creature of malice and evil. It is summoned by fools to do their evil works on this plane. Murder is the Orgathu's art, and it does it very well.

However, most of those who seek to use this vile creature as a weapon never fully understands that the Orgathu likes what it does, and once its here... it wants to stay here. Forever.”

Artist Frank Chavez illustrated the Orgathu and had written the details stated above to describe it on his deviant art page.

I liked the look and idea so much that with Frank's blessing, The Orgathu became my 1st supernatural creature created exclusively for the House of BtS!

Image of the Hollow Light

The Hollow Light

Submitted by BtS fan Anthony Uyl, The Hollow Light is an incorporeal, opportunistic energy leecher. And when I say energy, I mean I.S.P., P.P.E., and “Life Force” (Hit Points).

Illustration by James Carl McKnight, who I think did a great job in depiciting the horrific and spectral look of this entity.

The Ghoulkin by Brandon C. Clark

The Ghoulkin

“The staff has just notified your host that in-human, dangerous looking beings have been lurking in the woods that surrounds the House of BTS. This probably explains why all my landscapers and gardeners (along with all their tools) keep going missing.”

Written by Anthony Uyl & outstandingly illustrated by Brandon C. Clark, The Ghoulkin are savage, tribal-like, inhuman beings that live in the forests, mountainous regions and other isolated places of the modern world.

They all share a taste for human flesh, a general fear of technology, and a talent for stealing “food” and supplies from small towns and communities while evading local law enforcement and various hunting parties.

Illustration of the Shadow Hunter by Brandon C. Clark

The Shadow Hunter

Submitted by Anthony Uyl and illustrated by Brandon C. Clark, The Shadow Hunter is an intelligent and cunning supernatural psychic predator and lesser demon that feeds on our deepest, darkest fears, forcing their victims to experience their fears like vivid hallucinations.

The aftermath of experiencing these visions runs the risk of suffering a variety of mental anguishes, and temporary, or even permanent insanity!

These beings are also part of a potentially larger invasion force, and could be used as part of a “Shadow Men” or “Men in Black” urban myth adventure! Brandon's fantastic Illustration really brings out a level of emotional depth not seen a lot in BtS style visuals. Fantastic work Brandon!

Image of Dune Cat by James KcKnight

The Dune Cat

The Dune Cat is a desert dwelling supernatural feline creature that's fiercely territorial, attacking intruder with a pack mentality and group tactics. By day it resembles a panther, but night its much more terrifying, and dangerous, to behold! Its also intelligent, evolving over the ages and refining its way of life to be a better survivor. They've even created their own language!

Illustration is by James Carl McKnight, who's use of color along (the contrast of the black Dune Cat and the fire against the silver moon landscape impresses me) with the design of the Dune Cat itself is nothing but stellar! I hope to see lots more of Mr. McKnight's work in the future!

Image of the Seelensammler

Der Seelensammler

This creature was brought to life by a couple of team players. The first was Frank Chavez, who gave me permission to use his artwork, “The Harvester of Souls”.

The 2nd was BtS fanatic and all around great guy “Hendrik”, who helped me with German translations as well as offering me sage like advice and ideas to help flesh it out.

The Seelensammler is something of a bogeyman in German folklore that seemingly goes back as far as recorded history. Children were often warned to never be out in the woods after dark, or the Seelensammler will come for them and “steal their breath away”.Interestingly, no one outside of Germany and students of German folklore had ever heard of the Seelensammler until WWII.”

Image of the Echid-Urkt-Kha by Mike Dubisch


This monstrosity came from asking artist Mike Dubisch to let me use his art in the House. Well, not only did he give me permission to use it, he sold me the original art for little much more than shipping! He's a great guy all around, and I'm proud to display his work as much as I am to call him a friend. Thanks Mike!

A thank you shout also goes out to Scott Gastineau (Lord Z), who's always good about editing my scribes and offering his insights.

The Echid-Urkt-Kha is my first attempt at creating a Greater Demon, who possesses a variety of talents, like psychic abilities, magic knowledge, inflicting mind attacks, and creating mummies from dead bodies or zombie slaves from the living!

Special Equipment

This Section is dedicated the special and/or unique equipment designed for use in my BTS games.

image of ghost hunting kit

Standard Ghost Hunting Equipment

This is paperwork that I hand out to players that attend my “Ghost Story” based convention games. While there's nothing unique about these items per se, the images and descriptions help the players get into character and offers them a method of paranormal investigating via these tools. EVP's, orb photography, cold spots, and other signs of paranormal activity can be discovered by using these tools.
Air Ion Counter image

Air Ion Counter
“Spirit Detector”

“The Air Ion Counter (A.I.C.) is a handheld device that’s designed to measure ion density. The counter is used in a number of scientific fields and specifically measures the number of ions (both positive and negative) per cubic centimeter or the average in a given area.
In Paranormal investigation and research the device is used as a gauge which can measure paranormal activity and sometimes the direct (though unseen) presence of a ghost or entity.

This neat little toy comes from first time contributor Jeff Duncan. It can be thought of as an additional item to add to a paranormal investigators arsenal, and can add tension and intrigue in a given investigation.
image of prototype forensic tools page

Prototype Crime Scene &
Forensic tools

These tools were designed to be used in place of fragile, expensive state-of-the-art forensic/scientific analytical equipment while potentially replacing the need of having a crime scene/forensic specialist (or an entire team of specialists) on location. All tools are on loan from a private research company and are considered to be experimental at this time. While not designed for paranormal research, the R&D department is curious about how useful they are in the paranormal field.
   My pregen Parapsychologists always have this equipment on hand with their character sheets (and in due time they will show up in the pregen section) and they're always available to the player group in the van in my home games when they want or need them.
   These tools were heavily inspired by the "Condemned: Criminal Origins" video game (which is where the images came from).

Special Weaponry

These are interesting items that deserved their own write up and stats.

Taser X26C Electronic Control Device

TASER International's products protect life, providing advanced Electronic Control Devices (ECDs) for use in the law enforcement, medical, military, correctional, professional security, and personal protection markets. TASER devices use proprietary technology to incapacitate dangerous, combative, or high-risk subjects who pose a risk to law enforcement & correctional officers, innocent citizens, or themselves in a manner that is generally recognized as a safer alternative to other uses of force. TASER technology protects life, and the use of TASER devices dramatically reduces injury rates for law enforcement officers and suspects.
Image of the The S&W M327 TRR8 

The Smith & Wesson M327 TRR8

The “TRR” stands for Tactical Rail Revolver, and the “8” refers to its bullet capacity.
The S&W M327 TRR8 is supplied with two rails. With the rails (which are good for adding lights, lasers and optics), and its 8-shot capacity, The S&W M327 TRR8 meets the description of a “Tactical Rail Revolver”. This came about from one of my newer players having a love of gear for his Genius P.C.C. character.
Image of K48 Tactical

M48 Kommando Tactical Shovel

The M48 Kommando Tactical is the ultimate tactical shovel that also doubles as a defensive weapon!
Features virtually indestructible, injection-molded nylon handle with 30% fiberglass & nylon reinforcement. The shovel head is made of tempered 2Cr13 stainless tool steel with a hard, black oxide coating. The shovel point edge is sharpened, with a partially serrated edge on one side, and a concave chopping edge on the other. Perfect for camping and outdoors use, light chopping, or for use as a defensive weapon in an emergency situation. Includes a reinforced nylon belt pouch.
This was added due to my being a fan of tactical gear that has multiple uses, and more items like it will probably be added to this section in the future.


Due to a growing trend of using skills from other games (like Dead Reign) and The Rifter sourcebooks in my home game, I decided to put together a list of all the skills that I use and where to find them. While I was at it, I ended up compiling a list of homemade skills that either I created or had found online.
Note that some of these skills are specific and if your not sure what they are or how they might be used, you may want to keep them out of your game.
Finally, if you have a home made skill that you use, send it to me and it may show up on this list! List is updated as of 7/7/13.
