[13th Age] Q&A on Discord this weekend

Post by Tim Baker » Tue Aug 21, 2018 8:20 am

Have you heard of 13th Age, a game that blends elements of 3rd and 4th Edition D&D with a healthy smattering of the player agency you find in indy games? Are you curious how you could adopt some of its mechanics to improve your D&D games? Or would you like to know where to start if you're interested in running a 13th Age game? Do you love diving into campaign settings, and want to learn more about the Dragon Empire, the default setting for the system? Or perhaps you're looking for Midgard or Glorantha books that are compatible with 13th Age.

I'm passionate about 13th Age, having run it since the early days of its playtest in 2012, and would love to answer any questions that you might have about the game, its mechanics, its products, and its setting. Based on the survey results for the best time for a Discord chat, I'll be available on Saturday, August 25, from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM Pacific Daylight Time. Here's a handy tool that will tell you what time this equates to in your timezone.

The day of the chat, come back to this thread, and an invitation to the Discord server will be available. I hope we have a wonderful discussion!

I might be a bit late for this, but I'll try to get there.

If anyone doesn't have an account yet, please try to surf by early on Saturday, as I'll be able to give you a hand, (before my live-streamed Spelljammer game starts).

Hey, that was a great chat! I had to leave pretty early because of time differences and me pretty much needing to get some sleep, but I very much enjoyed the first segment. It was particularly great to see Jonathan Tweet in there as well as the others who are professionally involved with 13th Age. Very impressive.

I learned a lot of new things about the game and the settings connected to it.

Great job Tim Baker for organizing the event! :)

Thanks for putting this up Tim.

Discord is a great place to chat, but not so good a place to put a chatlog that you want everyone to be able to read (without needing to log into anything). :)

It was great of all those people to swing by and answer questions and I hope the answers can help lots of people in the future (who don't even realise they might like 13th Age yet).
