S2-E10: Adventure Site Creation: Swamp

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!

S2-E07: Campaign Creation: The Diabolist

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!

S2-E06: 13th Age Glorantha Review: Part 2

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.

S2-E05: 13th Age Glorantha Review: Part 1
