I’m a little busy this week and into next. It is the end of the semester so finals are fast approaching, projects need turned it. So I wanted to make sure that I posted another 13th Age blog post and monsters are one thing I know I can do well and fast. So please forgive two monsters in the same week Today’s monster is a creation of the Fleshcrafter, one of our… Read More

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… Read More

I know we haven’t done much for 13th Age as of late. So when we were creating the skunkdrill for Pathfinder and 5e, we couldn’t not create one for 13th Age as well. And that is a goal of ours with our Patreon: having the resources to support this fun game. So if you want to see more 13th Age material on the JBE Blog, support our Patreon today. Also check out… Read More

As promised on Monday, we created the 5e version of the Skunkdrill, this mad combination of a skunk and mandrill is a perfect addition to any D&D 5e game. Need to make the rogue run for the hills? This monster will make them not taking their sneaking abilities for granted. If you enjoyed this blog post and others like it, be sure to back our Patreon. Picking up artwork for projects like… Read More

When it comes to a new piece of new monster artwork, particularly one that is not in the core monster books for any games, it is funny just how much of a kid in a candy store I turn into. Take this image by Dean Spencer as an example. It was released Friday and I grabbed it that within an hour of seeing it. Later that night I made the Pathfinder and… Read More

I was working on some Pathfinder slayers yesterday, and I made a character that previously was swallowed. Let me tell you, if you’ve ever been swallowed, you want some kind of defense against having that happen to you again. Pathfinder already has armor to help prevent against that so I thought I’d convert it over to 5e (since it may be making an appearance in my home game). Help us support random… Read More

Drow are problematic. They are portrayed as dark skinned and evil except for the few that are brooding but good. I always feel that calling an entire race or subrace evil (outside of fiends) as lazy design. So when a player in my campaign said they wanted to play a drow but had some problems with them, I decided a rewrite of them was in order. I’m not just talking, “let’s make… Read More

I asked our very first Patreon supporter what kind of blog posts would they like to see. Their response was a series about the writing process. I think that that is a great idea. So in the Writing Process series of blog posts, I am going to take you through the various stages of writing some new game mechanic for what will ultimately be in a published product. Today’s will answer that… Read More

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
