Eleven transients have been discovered by Pan-STARRS1 during a targeted search of the Kepler Campaign 12 field as part of the K2 Extragalactic Survey (KEGS) for Transients. Spectroscopic followup, when not indicated below, is encouraged. Information on all objects discovered by the Pan-STARRS Survey for Transients is available at http://star.pst.qub.ac.uk/ps1threepi/ (see Huber et al. ATel #7153).
