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

I hope you are having a fun Gen Con this year. No matter where in the world you are, you can play in Gen Con this year. I hope that more conventions have an online component even after we go back to the way things were. For this year, however, you can download JBE’s Pathfinder 1e, D&D 5e, 13th Age, and Traveller RPG at JonBrazer.com for 20% off with the coupon code… Read More
