From SageNytell: In this session, we rejoin Jerith the Human Cleric (Upon Whose Skin Is Scriven The Name Of God) played by Graz; Meri… er, Amber Smith the High Elf Rogue (Of The Most Secretive And Deadly Order of Blind Assassins) played by Craig; and Kitterina the Wood Elf Ranger (Whose Ancestors Are Always Watching) as they travel towards a strange new destination – the mysterious Boltstrike Tower, leyline node of the great and powerful Archmage! They are joined by the disconcertingly popular Sven the Human Barbarian (Surprisingly Not Actually The Hero of Legend, Go Figure, played by Chris) in a fantastic adventure called Blood and Lightning featuring dungeons, dragons, 50’s Scifi tropes, and lots and lots of Sven puns! Afterwards, the players and I discuss our feelings on the playtest and the system as a whole.
Message from Ross: A RPPR forum-goer, SageNytell, is a playtester of the new fantasy RPG 13th Age. He recorded 2 playtest sessions of this unreleased game and offered it to us. Given what I’ve read about this game, I thought you all might enjoy a sneak preview of it. Let me know what you all think!
From SageNytell: In this session, we meet Jerith the Human Cleric (Upon Whose Skin Is Scriven The Name Of God, played by Graz); Merisiel the High Elf Rogue (Of The Most Secretive And Deadly Order of Blind Assassins, played by Craig); and Kitterina the Wood Elf Ranger (Whose Ancestors Are Always Watching, played by Rachel). Our players battle a gang of desperadoes in a deserted ghost town and engage in a desperate struggle for their lives in Gobpocalypse! Afterwards, the players and I discuss our feelings on the system as a whole. (Spoilers: I used incorrect flanking rules from 3.5, this is fixed for the second session!)
