13th Age: Usurper’s Troops
As we’ve been talking about all last month, we started a Patreon to support our blog. We asked our Patrons to tell us what kinds of blogs they want to see. They spoke clearly. They want to see more 13th Age and more class/career options. So that is what we will be focusing on this month. Will we be doing that exclusively, no, but that will be our focus.
So today we are kicking off May with a new 13th Age creature to fight. Last year we created several new icons for 13th Age. One of which is the Usurper. This underhanded ruler of the Realm seized power and rules with an iron fist. Only those as brave as the adventurers can stop him. Today we’re looking at his troops. They’re mooks, but they’re well practiced and fight well as a unit. Underestimate them at your own peril.
