As I write this, I am sitting in a metal tube several miles above the surface of the Earth. No matter how many times I do this, I still find it amazing. I know all the physics involved, but that still doesn’t make it any less a wonder of the potential we can achieve when we put our brightest minds and the most daring among us together. There needs to be a… Read More

I have always been a fan of fantasy deities. The one thing that I always feel is that fantasy deities are missing is some appeal to common persons. I feel that deities that have a direct appeal to adventurers or villains are given special status while those that would be far more relevant to serfs and farmers are barely given any attention when they given any attention at all. Which brings me… Read More

We mentioned on Monday that this month is going to focus on monsters all month. We’ll be releasing new monsters for 5e, PFRPG, and 13th Age all month long. This week is the equitaur, a creature inspired by the Phillippine folklore monster tikbalang. See the 5e version here and check out the 13th Age version on Friday. Be sure to download all of our Pathfinder products at DriveThruRPG and the Open Gaming… Read More

When we began this month, we set off with the directive of posts focusing on either 13th Age or on new class/career options. So far, we’ve focused on the former and all but ignored the latter. So today I thought I would share with you a few new class options that we created. Specifically, here are a few new slayer talents that I really feel should have been published before now. Before… Read More

It was ten years ago this month that JBE released the Book of the River Nations: Complete Player’s Reference for Kingdom Building to the world. This book who’s name is exceedingly too long introduced Pathfinder players to our books and the quality of work we put into our material. This book holds a very special place in our hearts as it was a huge success for us. It was designed for the… 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

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

Earlier this year, we started sharing a new batch of signature characters. These new characters focused on humans and the human experience, helping us all see ourselves in our fantasy games. Today we want to share with you a new one. Allow me to introduce you to our new signature paladin. Thando Xolani’s name means “Love and Peace.” Like most parents, Thando worked hard to provide a good life for his wife… 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
