13th Age RPG
Regular price $44.95
Jim Likes 13th Age because it's a great blend of traditional crunchy F20 gaming and modern narrative story play. It's got two killer apps: every character has One Unique Thing that drives their history and give the GMs hooks for involving them in play, and the Escalation Die, a mechanic that increases the tension and stakes of old-school monster fights the longer they go on. It's a great alternative to the current stripped-down iteration of D&D and a welcome antidote to the massive weight of Pathfinder.
