Last year we started our Guide to series with the Guide to Mini-Bosses and Guide to Minions. Today we are continuing the series with the Guide to Evil Organizations. Lets call our evil organization “Evil, Inc.” This doesn’t have to be a corporation; this works equally well for a dark religion, cruel governments and the like. Understanding how such groups operate will make your portrayal of them more believable and realistic. So… Read More
Much like we asked recently about Traveller, we want to know how you play 13th Age these days. COVID-19 isn’t going to end any time soon so we want your help in how we should adapt to these times.

So while I can’t sleep, I figured I’d make an uncomplicated one for you. Here’s a nice chariot… Read More

When you’ve been around as long as JBE has, you look at your older work and can be proud of what you did for your level of experience but can’t help but see how you can do things better. Creatures of Distant Worlds is a prime example of this. The MGT 1e version of the book was a solid monster book, but it was a struggle to produce even that little book… Read More
