Pocket Mimic Podcast After Dark #3 – Designing Big Bads

This week Melanie and Vince sit down and answer an email question from a fan about designing Big Bads! Listen in as they talk about the process, and then design up big bad for high end games and then a mid level big bad.

Big Bad is a term that comes from the Buffy the Vampire Universe and as defined as such:

“A Big Bad is a term applied (mostly by fans and the show’s creators, but also spoken in the Buffyverse) to describe major villains on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. Specifically, it is usually accepted to refer to the single villain that, in each season of Buffy, is the dominant and final one.”

Email came in from Elain K:

What is your process for designing a big bad or a major NPC? Can you design one up for me as an example?
