This week we take a look at the 13th Age book Battle Scenes: High Magic & Low Cunning. We talk about how the Battle Scenes books are useful to GMs and what our favorite bits of High Magic & Low Cunning are.
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
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!
In our last episode (13th Age Glorantha Review: Part 1), we looked at the player-focused aspects of the book. In this episode, we move to the other side of the screen and look at the rest of the book through the eyes of a GM for what might be of interest. We conclude the episode with our review of the book as a whole and our recommendation on whether or not you should pick up the book.
In this week’s episode, we crack the cover of the 13th Age Glorantha sourcebook and begin our review of the massive tome. In part 1, we talk primarily about the player-focused aspects of the book, including the new classes, tweaks to existing classes, runes, and more!
If you haven’t listened to it yet, be sure to check out the conversation we had with Rob Heinsoo and Jonathan Tweet about 13th Age Glorantha in Episode 1.
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.
Join us in our first bonus episode as we talk with Alexander Macris, the creator of the Adventurer, Conqueror, King System (ACKS). We get to hear a lot about what ACKS is, why it’s a great system, and why you might want to play it.
