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!
This week we’re trying something new for the show! We brainstorm encounter ideas centered around a location that you might find useful in your campaign. The location we chose this time is a champion-tier cursed swamp that’s consuming a nearby village.
Listen in, take notes, and be inspired to use it at your table. And if you do, we’d love to hear about it, and what you named the swamp and village.
And let us know how you liked this sort of encounter-creation brainstorming session!
Every player loves good loot, especially if it’s magical. And in this episode we talk about about that magical loot: how much is too much, when it’s appropriate to take it away, making your own items, and more!

On the heels of last episode’s discussion of the Diabolist comes a review of the 13th Age Book of Demons. In this episode, we talk through what’s found between the covers: the new Demonologist class, hellholes, more demon stats, and the citadels of a couple Icons. All in all, this is a great book!
We had previously discussed using demons in a campaign in Episode 10 of last season, so be sure to go back and listen to that for additional inspiration!

This week we focus our attention on one of the 13th Age Icons of the Dragon Empire: the Diabolist. We discuss various perspectives of who she might be, what might motivate her, and even toss around some ideas on a campaign arc with her as a primary feature.
If she is prominent in your campaign, leave a comment, and let us know what your take on her is!
The 7 Icon Campaign article discussed in the show is actually one of the 13th Age Monthly installments. You can find out more about that here.
Today we take a look at one of the most useful resources to any 13th Age GM: The Game Master’s Screen and Resource Book. Join us as we crack the cover and talk about what you can expect to find inside and whether or not we think it’s worth picking up.
This week we interview Rob Heinsoo, one of the creators of 13th Age! We take advantage of this opportunity to ask him questions like
- Why 13th Age?
- What is playing 13th Age like at your table?
- What is your favorite 13th Age mechanic and monster?
- What is on the horizon for 13th Age?
- and many more!
Join us as we take a closer look at the 13th Age Icon, the Orc Lord. We discuss how to use that Icon in your campaign as well as covering various ways of using mooks and kobolds in your battles.
In this episode we discuss the various 13th Age Icons, rolling relationship dice, and how you can use both in your gameplay. In our monster review, we take a closer look at the White Dragon.
