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-E12: Book of Ages Review

This week we take an in-depth look at one of the new resources to 13th Age GMs – the Book of Ages!

It is natural for us play in the 13th Age, but what happened prior to that? How did the 12th Age end? What happened way back in the 3rd Age? This book is an excellent resource in how to answer those questions. Listen in as we discuss what all is included in the book and what Age we’d like to play in!

In the episode, we reference using a ‘Dirty Dungeon.’ That game mechanic was created by John Wick, though we’ve adapted it to 13th Age, which you can read here.

And if you don’t have a copy of this book yet, now would be a great time to pick up your copy of it! Through the end of September, you can receive a 10% discount off your pre-order of both Loot Harder: A Book of Treasures and The Book of Ages by using the promo code POD#ICON18LHBA

S2-E11: Go Berserk!

This week we take a close look at one of the new classes introduced in 13th Age Glorantha – the Berserker. This class is divided into two paths: the Storm Bull and the Zorak Zorani. While both come from the same core class, they play very differently from each other. Listen in as we talk about the differences, why you might want to play one, and some ways to bring them into the Dragon Empire!
