We at JBE are constantly hard at work at bringing you new products. So we don’t always devote the time we would like to updating our blog. Sure, we post previews of upcoming products or we talk about stuff that is in our current products, but we do not just create stuff for our blog as often as we would like. Oddly enough, these posts are some of our most popular. Take… Read More

I DM a D&D 5e game at home. It started off as a Lost Mines of Phandelver campaign with some Yawning Portal thrown in. But when Phandelver finished, I started them in on the Tomb of Annihilation. We finished that and the group is on the road to hunting down the rest of Acererak’s phylactories. The group has now two multiclass characters and one person that changed out a character for another…. Read More

I love me some 13th Age. It is a well built game and highly enjoyable, one you should check out if you are not familiar. I’d describe it as D&D 4th Edition without all the compromises that held 4e back from being a truly awesome game. Having said that, I know plenty of groups that will only play D&D 5e or Pathfinder. For GMs in such a group, I recommend doing a… Read More

So in my personal game, I am looking at my players travelling to the planes in upcoming adventures. Spells to travel the planes are not low level ones and the group only has one full caster. So to take them to the planes, I am making a new custom item for them. I don’t want them to jaunt over to the good planes whenever they get an ouchie, nor do I want… Read More

It is about this time of year that some GM’s run holiday-themed game sessions. That got me wondering, how many GM’s actually do that? Fantasy or science fiction, it doesn’t matter, holidays work in both. Does your star-travelling furry race celebrate Life Day? Do your dwarves celebrate the freezing of the ground? If you have any stories you’d like to share, the comments section is open to you. So vote in the… Read More

When you are reading and running an adventure, do you like the stat block right there? Would you rather not have to deal with the stat blocks until you are ready for them? Do you like the stat blocks right where the room and the encounter is described so you don’t have to flip pages? Would you rather it be in a different file, letting you split screen/print out the monsters? Tell… Read More
