13th Age Organized Play Update: August 2016

Tides of Fate: Part 2

The magical ship Ostulti is a legend—created in a long-ago age, it’s a flying fortress able to ascend to the highest heavens where the living star-mask dungeons were long ago banished, and from which they have now returned. In order to reach the star-mask dungeon planet the Ostulti will be needed once again. The only problem? It was lost when the Wizard King fell.

Tides of Fate Part 2 is the latest 13th Age Alliance organized play adventure, designed for 8th level characters in four two-hour sessions. If you’re a 13th Age Monthly subscriber, you can download organized play adventures from your Bookshelf. RPGNow/DriveThruRPG/OneBookshelf subscriptions to 13th Age Monthly also include  organized play adventures.

Play Report: Wild West Comics and Games

GM Carlo Aceytuno writes:

13th Age table at Wild West GamesSo Friday night i dropped off some 13th Age display items at Wild West Comics and Games – Arlington and on Saturday, they used them to set up a reserved table for the demo.

It worked! I got there early on Saturday and as soon as i arrived, I was already being pounced on with questions by players eager to start!

Some already reviewed the icon sheet I printed out and had relationship ideas in mind!

The demo ran about 3 hours and with a half-orc barbarian hero, a dwarven cleric with an unpredictable planar-travel sickness, and a halfing rogue who invented the only lockpick that can open any door (if only it worked).

The cleric accidentally plane-shifted into the half-orc tribe whose hero was destined to claim the an ancient Orc Lord artifact, while the rogue tagged a long to steal it for the Prince of Shadows.

A few Mooks, montages, Lizardmen, a monstrous boss, two rolls of 6s, the rogue decided to side with the Orc Lord, causing his Positive to change to Conflicted for the Prince of Shadows who won’t be pleased… but he earned the respect of the Orc Lord.

Natural even hit: As a free action, the squid-shark can make a second grinding maw attack against a different enemy with a –2 attack penalty. If it gets another natural even hit, it can make a third (and final) grinding maw attack against a different enemy with a –4 attack penalty as a free action.

    Is that cool Escalation Die available to sale anywhere, or is there a pattern to print out one’s own?
