“13th Age is, perhaps, the first d20 game that I’ve ever played that treats the game inside of combat and the game outside of combat with equal love, attention, and innovation.” – Jon Spengler, Dorkadia

“[13th Age] has just enough of the freedom I want from a tabletop game while also being able to balance the crunchy aspects. I was just about to swear off D20 games, too. So I’m glad I found this.” – Kirby Smith, playtester

“The combination of a streamlined…system with fun and unique character creation and an interesting high fantasy world have completely won me over.” – Ed Grabianowski, Robot Viking

“The system is absolutely brilliant. For me, it brings a lot of the things I really enjoy about traditional fantasy gaming and infuses them with some new and really useful ideas that you often see in more indie gaming.” – Aaron R., GM of Forgotten Sagas of the 13th Age, Obsidian Portal’s March 2013 Campaign of the Month

    from what I’ve read I’ve found my new main game when it comes to fantasy roleplaying. I love how they have the guts to change things and their not apologizing for it. You can’t go backwards and D&D Next should be called D&D WAS or Has Been.

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation
    but I find this topic to be really something that I think I would
    never understand. It seems too complicated and
    extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next
