The Road to Gen Con 2017

With the new year rolling in and badges going up in just a couple of hours (from the time I’m writing this), I’m so ridiculously excited for the amazing event that Gen Con 50 is going to be. As the same with last year,…

Adventure Game vs. RPG

When I think of an adventure game, I personally think Talisman. I sat down to randomly play that one time at Battleground Games and Hobbies, the local watering hole. It was my first shot at an adventure game (besides some early run ins with HeroQuest) and it…

Unconventional Enemies: Elves Part 2

Wood elves are in a bit more of a pickle than high elves. The High Druid is rumored to have many wood elf followers who prefer her radical views on society vs. nature. Having an entire race of elves stuck between two Icons creates…

Lions, diretigers, and owlbears, oh my! There’s definitely no shortage of monsters in the realm of fantasy role playing. If you’re in need of something to crawl out of the gloom and harry your party’s progress, whether it be the 13th Age core rulebook,…

New Year for the Heavy Metal GM

Now, before you get all bent out of shape and roll your eyes in the back of your head, this isn’t some overly optimistic and typical New Year’s Resolutions type thing. Except, well, it kind of is, but that’s besides the point! As role…

Fight in Spirit

Another one of those rules in 13th Age that are easily glanced over is the Fight in Spirit rule. I’ve never seen this one anywhere else so I’ll jump the gun and say that it’s another unique rule that makes this game system shine….
