Ben and I will be running a special one-shot 13th Age RPG on November 2nd at Fair Game store in Downers Grove during the Extra Life charity event! Right now this is being scheduled tentatively from Noon to 3pm, but we will have a 13th Age game on hand to run anytime during the day. Both of us will be participating in the Extra Life marathon and gaming for 25 hours starting 10am Saturday, November 2nd.
Because this is a charity event we do ask that participants consider making a minimum $5 donation in support of the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago where more than 149,000 patients are treated each year thanks to the efforts of various fundraising efforts like Extra Life. These kids are facing scary stuff like cancer, cystic fibrosis, and injuries from accidents to name just a few. Your donation is tax-deductible and ALL PROCEEDS go to help kids.
Pre-generated character sheets, miniatures, pen and paper will be provided. This is a great opportunity to help kids while doing what you love, playing games!

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 3-7 players.
