After working on this adventure for several months and then spending more time converting it to Pathfinder, we’re very excited to announce that we’ve finished the final conversion of The Pristine City, which is now released for 5E.
We think this great adventure works really well with 5th edition, and we’ve introduced a couple new monsters (one being the gaslight, which you may have already seen in the Monster Mausoleum). the collapse rules work largely the same as they do in 13th Age and Pathfinder, with the DM keeping track as the city slowly falls down around the players, and the players trying to accomplish all of their goals before it does.
If you’re just learning about our company for the first time and would like to get a glimpse of our work before committing money to it, check out Treasures of the Pristine City. This is offered as a “pay what you want” title, so feel free to pick it up for free. It offers the ten magic items found in this adventure, and you can see a little bit of our design work as well as our layout. If you like it, leave a review and pick up The Pristine City (or any of our other 5th edition titles).
Thanks for checking us out!

We’re excited to announce that we’ve released Tome of Templates for 5th edition Dungeons and Dragons! It’s available now over at the Dungeon Masters Guild.
Inside, you’ll find ten templates for 5e monsters, including clockwork, fiendish, krakenthrall, topiary, and zombified. We’ve even got some tips on how to make the templates work for you and your table—after all, you know your players better than we do.
Some templates increase a creature’s CR. All of them grant an ability or action that comes standard with the template, and most have a list of optional abilities or actions to make sure you can bring something truly unique to your table. Even the player who has memorized the Monster Manual won’t see the angelic half-orc coming! (Or the clocktopus, pictured on the cover, left.)
Meanwhile, we’re just about done with the 5e conversion of “The Pristine City.” We’re even including a sidebar to help you incorporate it into a Forgotten Realms setting so you can easily work it into your current ongoing campaign. We’re really excited to finally get this adventure converted to 5th edition, so expect to see that in the next few days!
In a sharp shift of plans, we have released one of our two monster projects for 5th edition before we finished converting “The Pristine City.”
Monster Mausoleum has 17 undead monsters in it, from allip to skull lord. While we were converting “The Pristine City,” we noticed the Monster Manual has a huge gap in undead creatures between CR5 and CR13, so that’s the range we tried to cover. You’ll find bodaks, crypt things, and devourers, not to mention three different draugrs and two versions of our brand-new monster, the gaslight. (And of course, possibly the most grossly awesome undead of them all, the penanggalan, pictured on the cover, right.)
Our next monster project, Tome of Templates, should be available in just a day or two. Expect pages filled with new ways to use monsters from any 5e bestiary: Turn them into clockworks, ghosts, fiends, and more. Then, shortly after that, we’ll be finished with the 5e version of “The Pristine City,” so start getting your table together!
Now that we’ve published “The Pristine City” for both 13th Age and Pathfinder, we’re working on converting it over to fifth edition Dungeons & Dragons. The conversion is going well, and we expect it to be a relatively smooth process all the way through. It shouldn’t be too long before we’re able to announce that the conversion is available for sale.
Speaking of fifth edition, we’re also starting in on some other projects; particularly, we’re working on a short, one-session adventure and a small monster project. These are both in very early development, but expect an update soon with more.
Don’t worry, though—we’re still hard at work on the 13th Age class books, and we expect the barbarian book to be out and available before too long. We’ve got a lot of stuff on our plates right now, but we’re doing our best to give each project the attention it deserves.
Keep checking back for more updates on what we’ve got in store!
