About the game…
13th Age is a new fantasy roleplaying game, designed by Jonathan Tweet – lead designer of Dungeons & Dragons® third edition – and Rob Heinsoo, the lead designer of the fourth edition of D&D®. 13th Age honors old school fantasy role-playing values as it dives deep into rich story telling adventures. The game features a familiar d20-style system, but it lighter on the rules compared to D&D which results in smoother, free-flowing combat. An Escalation Die rule that keeps battles fast and exciting by giving characters an escalating combat bonus the longer they fight.
The game focuses on connecting players to the world they are in through the use of background-based skills as well as detailed relationships with the key movers and shakers of the world – The Icons. Adventures will encourage creative and imaginative ways to solve the challenges set before them.
The adventure is crafted for 4-5 players. The majority of mechanical character development will be completed in advance with 10 available pre-generated characters. Players will be able to select from these and develop their background, Icon relationships and their place in their world before diving into the adventure itself.
Players will need to bring pen and paper and if possible, a small collection of dice (d4,d6, d8, d10, d12, d20). Since character creation will be done at the table, a basic character concept is encouraged but not required. If players would like to bring miniatures of their own, they are welcome to do so, but a large variety will be available to use if you do not have any.
