Grindhouse Edition Giveaway Contest! Who is Karina?

I just realized I had one space left for my allotted giveaways... and now I figured out what the contest should be to determine who gets it!

I just received this email:
Nice to meet you.
My name is Karina, me of 27 years.
I search for the man for serious relations.
As I search for a long time already for the significant other.
Obviously this Karina is somehow Weird!

Here's the contest:

Write this NPC up. Who is Karina? Where does she come from? What are her stats and unique abilities? Why is she searching for the man, and what sort of serious relations does she mean? And how does all this involve the PCs?

Submit the entry that impresses me the most (with or without answering those questions... that's a rough guide, not a list of requirements) and you win.

  • The writeup you submit is your own original work that has not previously appeared in print or on the web.
  • By submitting, you give permission for me to release it in an Open Game Content document.
  • You need to be 18+ years old to enter.
Submit your entry to

The creator of the winning writeup will get a complimentary copy of the Grindhouse box. All entries (that I don't think are utter crap, anyway) will be organized into a PDF to be freely distributed, with all items being Open Game Content.

If you do not include a real name to be credited I assume you are OK with not being individually credited - I'd really rather not list internet handles.

Submit your entry before Wednesday March 23 11:59pm Finnish time.


  1. I assume that we should translate Karina into a fantasy setting and not to place her on earth? And we should be vague when it comes to her origins so she can be ported into any campaign?

  2. I don't think it makes any difference - if you call her French I'm sure anyone wanting to use the idea would be able to fit that to their campaign with no more work than doing so if there were no specific info like that...
