Just picked up the character add on today. I'm still playing through the basic intro adventures, and haven't started Burnt Offerings yet. At what point can I introduce these extra characters/cards? Some of the monsters seem far too powerful for the basic level characters..

Adding the character add on pack right away is not only allowed, but suggested. There are unique cards in there that are not in the base set.
And the character add-on pack is not simply a 5-6 player expansion. Its purpose is threefold:
1. To give you enough cards to have 5-6 characters in a group. 2. To give you 4 other characters besides the ones in the base set to play in any group of any size, 1-6. 3. To give you some additional cards that are not in the base set that may be useful to any character, even ones that are in the base set and not the character add-on. Many of the base set characters might like to have that saber-toothed tiger, if they can find and acquire it. Same thing for the Crown of Charisma.
