13th Age LogoEvenglare on the Pelgrane Press forums has built a one-page, fillable PDF character sheet for 13th Age.

This very useful sheet can be downloaded here.




The man who gave Night’s Black Agents its sleek carnivorous look, Chris Hüth, has designed (and posted on his blog, The Elder Sküll) a modified Night’s Black Agents/Trail of Cthulhu Burn/Dust mode character sheet with slots for Magic, Mediumship, and Clairvoyance, should you want to play a paranormal spies vs. the Mythos game a la the sadly unproduced British TV series Rough Magik. You know, maybe I’d better let him explain it.

Dedicated Night’s Black Agents Director R. B. Bergstrom urges you to use up those Shooting points and kill some damn mooks. Read his hard-won and heartfelt advice on running and playing combat scenes in GUMSHOE (in Night’s Black Agents specifically, but the advice is applicable across the lines) in his latest Transitive Property of Gaming post, right here.

Matthew Breen has created some beautiful Agent Dossier character sheets for Night’s Black Agents and six well fleshed-out pre-gens to go with it by Kevin Kulp. The blank dossier is available to download here and the pre-gens here as PDFs.

Level 3 pregens from Campaign Coins (.zip PDFs) level 3 by Jackson Heenan: Dark Elf Monk, Derro Wizard, Human Necromancer, Goblin Rogue. AUTHOR’S NOTE: “This party was created for The First Bank of Drakkenhall, a heist adventure of stealth and skulduggery. As such, they are somewhat dodgy, shady characters that you wouldn’t want to meet in a dark alley in the City of Monsters. Also attached is a list of suggested magic items that would serve them in such endeavors. Also, the goblin and derro, being unofficial player races, have homebrew powers that probably aren’t perfectly balanced.”

Quick Start Adventure

Download Stowaway – the Ashen Stars 30-minute demo. Includes pregenerated characters.

If you want to introduce your players to Ashen Stars, it’s much easier to get them into it if it just takes up 20 minutes of their valuable time at the beginning or end of a session.  It’s also a great convention demo.

Listen to Kevin Kulp run the Stowaway quick start demo for Ashen Stars:
