13th Age Bestiary - Hatchling Edition

Pre-orders for the 13th Age Bestiary are live. If you order now, you get a basic PDF immediately as well as a chance to playtest the monsters, plus an upgrade to the full PDF and book when it's ready.

I got to have a lot of fun with this book, which is full of D&D monsters with unique twists. +Rob Heinsoo revealed two of the monsters I worked on, which I tease a bit more below. I even put it past a jump for the spoiler averse. (Though, I guess if you are pre-ordering, you don't have to worry about spoilers.)

I'll also take a moment to plug the blog for my own 13th Age game, which has its second episode this Friday.

AV Club - Cinematic Titanic

Not only will I be covering both shows again this year, but I got to do an interview with Joel, J. Elvis, Trace and Mary Jo. It was a surreal moment talking with Joel about the Dells for a few minutes before starting the interview proper.

AV Club - Galloping Ghost

Back-to-back articles this week with my profile on the Galloping Ghost Arcade. This is a great place full of great games that is worth a trip, especially if you grew up in arcades like I did.

AV Club - Pokemon Gallery Night

Milwaukee has a strong geek heart. We've got a nerd bar and were the original home of Gen Con. Having a Pokemon themed gallery night makes sense.

Interview - Brett Barkley

For those lucky Fate fans who backed the Kickstarter, the PDFs of the Fate Worlds books are in their hands. It feels so crazy that something that was just an idea for a Fate game I had a couple years a go is now going to be immortalized in a setting book from the company that created one of my favorite rules sets. The book should be going on pre-order shortly. When paired with the first volume, you'll be getting a dozen settings from some of the best Fate designers out there.

To celebrate this fact, I did an interview with Brett Barkley, the cover artist of the book and the artist for the section on CAMELOT Trigger. Brett blew me away with his work on the project. You can see his enthusiasm in every piece. I can't think of any other artist that could fit the setting so perfectly, even as fans put together awesome character sheets featuring their own Armours. If you'd like to hear about how Brett came to be a part of this project, his interview is available after the jump.
