Much like we asked recently about Traveller, we want to know how you play 13th Age these days. COVID-19 isn’t going to end any time soon so we want your help in how we should adapt to these times.

Pathfinder Unchained introduced a number of changes to the base rules of Pathfinder 1e. We enjoy reading them, but we want to hear your thoughts. Do you like them? Do you consider them a core addition? We want to know. Vote in our poll below. If you are not familiar with the Automatic Bonus Progression rules, read them here at d20pfsrd. The basic goal is to remove magic items like the cloak… Read More

Team Fiends? Team Sparkle Vampires? Team Venus Fly Trap? Vote in our… Read More

I anticipated a mix of everything from already switched to never gonna switch with the majority going to “skipping the playtest but converting… Read More
I do admit that for quite some time I did not “get” Fate. I tried to. I’ve read the Dresden Files RPG books as well as the FATE Core RPG book. I played in a few games at conventions.
