Characters to Bend Reality and Crush their Enemies Do your PCs need to hire an extra sword arm with some arcane talent to boot? Does your upcoming session need an evil wizard that can go several rounds in a melee fight? Are you seeking ideas for the terrible power at the end of your campaign? The Book of Beasts: Magus Codex has the solutions you need, arming Game Masters of the First… Read More

We are going to be publishing the Book of Beasts: Magus Codex here soon so we are sharing with you some of the NPCs within. Previously we shared the Apprentice Mage. Today we are showing off the Back Ally Avenger. When we are setting up each entry in the Character Codex series, we name each idea something we want to showcase or the basic concept for it. For some, this is the… Read More

I’ve said before that the next in the Book of Beasts series of NPCs known as the Character Codex will cover the Magus class. The first round of edits is moving along nicely (with some unrelated delays). So today I want to share with you the first NPC in this supplement. When I created this NPC, I couldn’t help but remember my very first D&D character—Xavier. Mind you, that character was a… Read More

Deadly Delves Reign of Ruin (13th Age)

Personally, I consider myself a monster creator over any other part of roleplaying creation. I love making the perfect monster for the situation. It is something I enjoy more than anything else. Lately, I’ve been working on NPCs for Pathfinder in addition to the icons for 13th Age. So for today’s blog post, I decided to merge them and make an NPC for 13th Age themed to the alternate icons I’m working… Read More

Last week saw the release of the Book of Beasts: Warpriest Codex which is part of the Character Codex Subscription. So far we’ve shared with you the Mercenary Priest and the Airborne Reanimator. Both of these are low level characters. Today we are sharing with you a higher level character. This level 12 lich slayer is more than your typical warpriest. They’re a champion of the faith. One of the things we… Read More

Divine Warriors and Dark Cultists Do your PCs need to hire some divine muscle? Does your upcoming session need an evil sword wielder that can also raise the undead or call upon infernal powers? Are you seeking ideas for the terrible power at the end of your campaign? The Book of Beasts: Warpriest Codex has the solutions you need, arming game masters of the First Edition of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game with… Read More

If you follow Jon Brazer Enterprises on Twitter or Facebook, you may have seen the announcement that we are working on our next major 1e Pathfinder project. We call it the Book of Beasts: Character Codex. This book is going to be similar to the NPC Codex by Paizo in that it provides 20 NPCs—one for each level—for each class detailed in the book. This way you always have an NPC at… Read More

When you are talking high level NPCs, their stat blocks can take quite a bit of time to create. Take the one we are featuring today, the high priest of Lirikellein, the goddess of the sun in this adventure: a high priest should be one that has accumulated quite a bit of abilities and gear. Detailing all that requires time, time a busy GM doesn’t have. Just like making high level adventures… Read More

Today I would like to share with you a fun mash up of two monsters: dragon and vampire. We are so use to vampires being humanoid that we forget that a vampire can be of any shape. So when creating it in another form, why not marry it a creature that is already scary like a dragon. Done like this, it opens up some new design space. You can make adjustments to… Read More
