Mashing up the Nentir Vale with 13th Age's Dragon Empire

Post by Tim Baker » Fri Jul 05, 2019 2:10 am

This GM decided to combine the Nentir Vale, where he began his campaign, with 13th Age's Dragon Empire, and eventually with Eberron. Here's a post describing how he did it.

I've seen the Chronicles of the Shadow Company website before.

Hey, good catch. I didn't connect those as the same source.

Interesting find. It seems Eberron is the perfect setting for mash ups. I did something similar to my Nentir Vale campaign back in 2009 (stealing stuff from Eberron to put into my world, I mean).

I find interesting what he did there with Nerath and the Dragon Empire. He really nailed it with the placement of the timeline. Does he has a campaign diary or something? It would be an interesting read.

I haven't seen anything as detailed as a campaign diary. I started going through the 13th Age posts on his blog, which provides more of high thought process, but I'm not sure it's at the level of detail you're looking for.

Did somebody ask for a campaign diary? Ask and ye shall receive.

I have not posted this to the Shadow Company blog yet because I have still have not figured out the ins and outs of WordPress. Work in progress.

This campaign diary definitely still needs some edits and updates, but maybe it contains something you will find useful and/or amusing.

I've read part of the diary. Your campaign is good, I like how you meshed up the storylines of Nerath and the Dragon Empire (although I'm not so familiar beyond what is said in the 13th Age corebook).

Is this an old campaign, or is still going on?

This is an old campaign, but it is still going on.

My brother-in-law and I started playing on December 21, 2012 (the end date of Mayan calendar). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2012_phenomenon. We mostly play by email, and our pace is typically glacial, perhaps because we keep having kids. But we keep chugging along.

Once or twice a year, we get together for a face-to-face gaming session, as we did this past weekend. We have a lot of fun.

I love long-lasting campaigns. It's awesome that it's been going on this long.

Your name is familiar – do you play 13th Age?

Indeed, 13th Age is my preferred game system. Although I am currently experimenting with adding some GUMSHOE investigative abilities into my 13th Age campaign.

My name may be familiar from Twitter, where I am QuillabyJD.

It's great to have another 13th Age fan join us. I remember the Lorefinder supplement from Pelgrane Press. I wonder if something like that could be applied to 13th Age. Probably a topic for another thread, though.

Yep, that would be it. Welcome to the community!
