S5-E20: Random Encounter – Haunted Narnian Fort

In this Random Encounter, we were asked by one of our patrons to design a Narnian-themed Haunted House adventure, and we were happy to oblige!

We start with a discussion about what makes something ‘Narnian’ then dive into a brainstorming session on what sort of adventure we could come up with.

S5-E19: Gamemasterclass Review – Part 2

For this episode, we were asked to review the book, Gamemasterclass. It’s a book full of great advice for GMs on ways to improve your game. Our discussion of the book grew into a discussion about being a good GM, so we’ve split this review into two parts. You can listen to Part 1 here.

If you are interested in picking up the book (and we certainly recommend doing so), you can find it on DriveThruRPG (link).

S5-E17: Adapting 13th Age Genres – Part 3

In this Part 3 of our recorded live episode (you can listen to Part 1 and Part 2 here), we dive into a discussion of the genre that comes stock with 13th Age (high fantasy) then talk about ways to adapt that to different fantasy genres. What would need to be done to run 13th Age in a Sword and Sorcery or Low-Fantasy setting? Or what about a Science-Fantasy setting? In addition to talking about what’s defining of those genres, we talk about ways to reskin classes, what mechanics might need to be tweaked, and how the Icons might be played differently.

S5-E13: NPCs

In this episode, we discuss one of the role-playing aspects of the GM – handling all the Non-Player Characters, or NPCs for short. We talk about the ways they outnumber the Player Characters, how to leverage 13th Age mechanics with them, converting PCs to NPCs and vice versa, and how to handle it when the PCs become hostile to NPCs.

S5-E12: Dynamic Battlefields – Part 3

In this episode, we continue our discussion about ways to make combat encounters more engaging by having the characters interact with more than just the baddie they’re up against. This is a continuation of the discussion started in Part 1 and Part 2. Making use of things like distance, terrain, hazards, and timers can really increase the dynamics of the gameplay!
