Duration: 2 - 4 hours

Adventure prelude…

This is the first of three interlinked adventures: Wrath of the Orc Lord, Domain of the Dwarf King, and The Elf Queen’s Enchantment. These three adventures form The Orc War Trilogy.

In Wrath of the Orc Lord the Orc Lord requests that you take care of a rogue warlord for him. A 'request' as in "Do this or I'll eat you".  The renegade General Gul has taken a portion of the Orc Lord's vast orc horde and has begun a quest for personal glory with her stolen army.The Orc Lord is unhappy, but has his hands full keeping his other generals in line right now.  You must go 'deal with' General Gul, or face the wrath of the Orc Lord.

Wrath of the Orc Lord a is six week adventure.  Each part will have a start and an end.  You do not need to commit to all six adventures to participate!  While we would like it if you could join us for the full adventure, we will be happy to accommodate players that can only join us for a session or two. 

This is the first 4th level organized play adventure!  

Adventure recaps from the previous adventure will be posted on our blog here: http://13thagetalespinners.wordpress.com/

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 3-6 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.

You can choose a pre-generated character sheet from the selection we have posted here: http://13thagetalespinners.wordpress.com/category/character-sheets/
