    13TH AGE Battle Scenes: A Sneak Preview Of The Upcoming Book Of Set Piece Battles

    Hi, the pricing has clearly caused some confusion, for which I apologise. The High Magic and Low Cunning print book is $30 - not $40. It includes the PDF of the book and the PDF of all the maps in full colour (the Map Folio). The book is a 192 page softcover. We are also offering a bundle...

    13TH AGE Battle Scenes: A Sneak Preview Of The Upcoming Book Of Set Piece Battles

    Thanks for your kind words - it's selling well! The maps aren't intended for miniatures, but to help the players picture the terrain and environment. When I ran this last year for my group, having the printed out full colour map in the center of the table really helped.

    [UPDATED] Pie For Everyone, Just Sliced Very Thinly: The Economics of RPG Book Production

    The main point of retail for us is that we couldn't easily do beautiful hardback books or acquire new players without retailers. That's why we do FreeRPGDay, and why we've signed up to the Envoy demo program. For some lines (eg 13th Age) retail is very much more important.

    [UPDATED] Pie For Everyone, Just Sliced Very Thinly: The Economics of RPG Book Production

    Overall, our margins are very slim, which is why we are concentrating our energy on selling more books this year. However, If I'd shown the figures for an early Trail such as Graham Walmsley's Purist adventures, it would look quite different, and our core books do much better, selling thousands...

    [UPDATED] Pie For Everyone, Just Sliced Very Thinly: The Economics of RPG Book Production

    No, they really don't. Artists get paid poorly, too, and there are even more artists approaching us than there are writers - an average of one a day.

    How to create NPCs?

    It depends on the narrative function of the NPCs. If they are for fighting, then you need the stats - adapted monster stats are good. I'd like to do an NPC building guide with pre-built NPCs. If they are for more than fighting then I use "three things" - three distinctive things about the NPC...

    What's cooking for 13th Age?

    Amazon undercuts FLGS hugely, is happy to loss-lead, plus they want distributor-level discounts and free shipping. So, we have no plans to distribute it on Amazon, but you can be certain that someone will offer it through Amazon.

    Exclusive 13TH AGE BESTIARY Preview: The Redcap!

    This mechanic is just for redcaps. I'd probably use it for certain kinds of demons.

    13th Age Prefix

    Very happy that 13th Age has its very own tag, and proud it's been rolled into the Pathinfinder / D&D / OGL section of enworld. Manabarbs, that is an excllent summary.

    13th Age is AMAZING and the Kickstarter needs your love!

    Thanks, guys! It's exceeding my expectations, that's for sure. It would be amazing if Robin Laws were able to write another 32 pages of material for the book, so I hope we hit that.

    Pre-Release Review of 13th AGE (Part 2) by Pelgrane Press

    Thanks so much for the review - I'm glad you like the game. The finished artwork and layout I hope will clear up your issues with the pre-release version. One minor point for clarity - 13th Age does not preclude the use of maps or miniatures. It simply removes the necessity for a grid, and...
