S2-E23: Son of the Living Dungeon

This week Becca joins us again for another Random Encounter brainstorm session! The thought behind this week’s topic is how we might introduce a living dungeon to an Adventurer-Tier party. The theme? An Epic-Tier party botched slaying a Living Dungeon, and now your party is handling the cleanup.

Don’t forget that we’re currently running a 13th Age Contest, and it’d be great if you could participate! For more information, please visit the announcement post!

S2-E21: Character Death

It is bound to happen sooner or later: somebody’s character dies. Whether they sacrificed themselves for their fellow adventurers, failed their saves, or received a critical hit at the wrong time, it can be a jarring experience.

This week Becca joins us again as we talk about different ways of handling character death and how 13th Age is designed to be a low-lethality game.

We talk a bit about Campaign Losses, and if you want to hear more about that, you can go back and listen to Season 1 Episode 11.

We’d love to hear your views on Character Death or perhaps one of your most memorable! Leave us a comment with your thoughts!

S2-E19: Adventure Site Creation: Sleigh Down!

This week Becca joins us again as we create another adventure site! This one is themed for the holiday as we build up the situation surrounding Santa’s sleigh crashing!

And like we mentioned, if you haven’t read the 13th Age novel written by Greg Stolze The Forgotten Monk, be sure to pick it up this holiday season. It’s great!

And for more 13th Age holiday festival ideas, check out Volume 3 of the Escalation Fanzine!

S2-E18: Campaign Creation

For this episode, we took an idea that one of our listeners, Carl, had submitted, and brought him on to talk about it. Namely, how does one set up a campaign? It’s one thing to use a published adventure for a one-shot, it’s a whole other task to weave multiple plots and subplots together into a way that’s meaningful for everyone at the table.

S2-E17: Fantasy Grounds

One of the challenges in playing RPGs is finding enough people to get together to play. But with the prevalence of the internet and virtual table top programs, distance is less of an issue. This week we have a guest host join us as we take a look at Fantasy Grounds and its official 13th Age modules.

If you’re interested in purchasing Fantasy Grounds or its modules, you can do so either on Fantasy Ground’s website or through Steam (program and modules).

We mentioned in the show that Matthew Colville has some excellent tutorial videos available about Fantasy Grounds, and you can watch them here.
