Book of Loot Review

Magic items make the world go ’round, right? The Book of Loot is a fantastic piece that further cements 13th Age as the ultimate balance between role playing and combat. As I’ve stated in my All That Glitters… post, I’m not a huge fan of money…

13th Age Monthly: Worth It?

Yes. End of post, go home now. Just kidding, but on a serious note, I can’t recommend 13th Age Monthly enough. To tell it true, it seems to be more aimed at GMs than players, but there are plenty of rules and such that…

Character Death

Adapting Monsters

Tarrasque, from 13 True Ways In my opinion, the best monster to ever be created was the squid-faced terrors that are the only rivals the dark elves truly have in the Underdark; Mindflayers. We all know what company has the gambit on that trademark,…
