If you were just wishing that you could do more with your 13th Age cleric, we’ve got some great news for you. Today, we released the third book in our Escalation Series of class books for the 13th Age Roleplaying Game.

In The Escalated Cleric, you’ll find new domains, new backgrounds, and new spells to flash around. We’ve also introduced a new mechanic that functions similarly to the power or broad effect mechanic of the cleric spells in the core book. Some of your new spells now function differently depending on whether you cast them in a stressed or calm state (translating to in or out of combat).

Check out all that and more! Don’t play a cleric? The Escalated Bard and The Escalated Barbarian are also available, and next month we’re releasing the fourth book of our series, The Escalated Ranger!

In The Escalated Bard, you’ll find new talents, backgrounds, and uniques, plus the battle cries, songs, and spells you need to bring combat to a satisfying crescendo. Don’t be the comic relief—become a force to be reckoned with!

A while back, we announced our upcoming series of class books compatible with the 13th Age Roleplaying Game. We worked very hard on them, arguing back and forth over mechanics and what to include or or not include, all the while trying to make sure we also kept up with the newfound demand for 5th edition D&D.

Now, we’re finally ready to start showing you the fruits of our efforts. Today we’re releasing The Escalated Barbarian, the first book of the series.  In it, you’ll find new talents, new magic items, and a new mechanic: Furies.

Furies are a variation on the barbarian rage mechanic—voluntarily end your rage early to deliver truly devastating blows to your enemies. Intrigued? Then snap up The Escalated Barbarian to find out more!
We’ll release a new book in the Escalation Series each month. Next up: The Escalated Bard. Get hype!

Players Guide to Gith Released for 5e D&D

Players Guide to Gith

The githyanki and githzerai have a long, troubled past. If their history has always struck you as something that would make a great character concept, we’ve got just the product for you. In Player’s Guide to Gith, you’ll find everything you need to turn that concept into your next playable character: racial traits, new feats, psionics—even expanded bonds.

From zerths to red dragon riders to silver swords, our Player’s Guide to Gith will help you fine tune all the details for your first (or fifth!) githyanki or githzerai character.

The Pristine City Released for 5e D&D

The Pristine City 5E D&DAfter 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.Treasures Cover

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.

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).

Tome of Templates Released for 5e D&D

Tome of Templates

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!

Monster Mausoleum Released for 5e D&D

Monster MasoleumIn 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!
