I saw a meme of how if there was a magic item that gave you a bonus to prevent disease, you’d wear it all the time. Well, I don’t know of such an item so I figured now was a great time to create one. Wear your face masks. Wash your hands. Social distance. Play RPGs while social distancing by playing them over Fantasy Grounds with JBE’s expanding suite of expansions. See… Read More

Over the years, I’ve read many mythological tales and seen such items in D&D/Pathfinder. Belts of giant strength, winged boots, various magical weapon and armor properties all owe their origins to the Greek, Norse, and other tales. Of all the items I have seen there one I have never seen: a big of wind. In The Odyssey, the bag of wind was supposed to blow the Odesseus and the crew home; instead… Read More

All year long we are releasing alternate icons for 13th Age. Read previous entries in the series: the Usurper, Deposed Heir, Fleshcrafter, Herald, Wandering Spirit, and the Guild Mistress. This month we leave civilization behind and bring in someone that doesn’t dish out cruelty as much as giving others permission to release their own cruelty, the Mother, the equal and opposite of the Great Druid. In many ways, the Mother is not… Read More

I’ve said before that the next in the Book of Beasts series of NPCs known as the Character Codex will cover the Magus class. The first round of edits is moving along nicely (with some unrelated delays). So today I want to share with you the first NPC in this supplement. When I created this NPC, I couldn’t help but remember my very first D&D character—Xavier. Mind you, that character was a… Read More

Like so many of our fellow gaming industry professionals, fellow Americans, and fellow humans around the world, we at JBE are horrified and outraged by the death of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Tamir Rice, Trayvon Martin, and so, so many others. We say it with you: Black Lives Matter. We call upon our elected officials to enact meaningful reforms such as banning chokeholds, holding officers accountable for their… Read More

So I started working on some more d66 lists again, and I wondered why I hadn’t done more of this during the pandemic. I took some time and thought about it and realized why I hadn’t. So instead of writing at some length as to why I had not, I thought I would make it fun and make it a d66 list by itself. I hope you enjoy this. If you haven’t… Read More

Not long ago, I mentioned that while working on Book of Beasts: Magus Codex, I noticed there are far too few touch spells. Now that that supplement is with the editors, I am writing new spells designed with the magus class in mind. All of these spells are touch spells. Previously I showed off the level 1 spell frigid grasp. This time I’m sharing a level 2 spell named tarfoot. When creating… Read More

This blog post is my latest in my 3 Rules series. Check out the others here. During COVID-19, I’ve been running two D&D 5e games over Fantasy Grounds: one is for my daughter and her cousins, the other is for my wife and a group of adults. Through it all, I have a number of rules that help me tie plot lines together, even when weaving several different modules into a single… Read More

There’s a thread over on Paizo.com’s boards titled Stuff You Wish Paizo Had Done During Pathfinder 1e. This thread is awesome for ideas for material to create for Pathfinder 1e. I just want to take a moment to thank every person that contributed to that thread; your thoughts are invaluable. Today we’re presenting an idea coming straight from that thread. The item is based in the elemental gems, except it summons an… Read More

It’s 2 in the morning and I just brought peace to Skyrim by killing Ulfric Stormcloak, again. I haven’t played it much lately. For the past several months I’ve played Witcher 3 in my off hours. Both are first person computer RPGs but they are two sides of the same coin. The similarities and differences between them are long, varied, and discussed in much more detail elsewhere. For this blog post, I… Read More
