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

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!

Fifth Edition and Beyond

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!

The Pristine City Released for Pathfinder

Great neThe Pristine City Pathfinderws! We’ve been working hard on the conversion of our first adventure, and DASTOW Games is proud to announce that The Pristine City is now available for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game!

We’ve made a few changes from the 13th Age version, of course: Most of the icons have been removed (since they’re specific to 13th Age), and those that remain do so as key NPCs that you can either work into your adventure or use in your campaign as a way to get your players to the Pristine City in the first place—we kept any that had specific goals within the city. We didn’t take out anything central to the adventure itself, and players will still enjoy the same sandbox feel.

We’re really excited to get this version out the door, and we hope you have a great time playing through it!

Our Next Steps

Cover art and design by Liz Green

The Pathfinder version of “The Pristine City” is well under way, and we’re planning to get that out sometime in November. Meanwhile, we wanted to share some of the plans we have once the adventure is released in both systems.

We’ve been working on class books for the 13th Age Roleplaying Game: the Escalation Series. Starting with The Escalated Barbarian, we’ll release each book digitally as we complete them, possibly collecting them into one book once they’re all finished. These books will have new spells and abilities, new uniques, new backgrounds, and new magic items specially designed to give more breadth to your 13th Age character.

For this series, we’ve acquired a very talented artist named Liz Green. We’ve already commissioned several covers, and we’re very pleased with the results. We expect the first book to be out by the end of the year.

Keep an eye out for both the Pathfinder version of “The Pristine City” and the new Escalation Series. We really look forward to sharing this with you! (Edit: The Pathfinder version is now available!)
