I found some enticing images at 13thAge.com of the new GM Screen that I developed with Lee Moyer, along with the accompanying Resource Book that includes a couple of my new interior illustrations. I enjoy these behind-the-screens shots of the printing process. I’ve seen a fair amount of my work in print now, but have never had the opportunity to visit the printer as it comes off the press, so these snapshots are satisfying.
If you’re interested in pre-ordering you can do so HERE.

Lee Moyer reworked one of my drawings from 13 True Ways and turned it into something entirely unique for the cover of the first issue of 13th Age Monthly. Click on the image to be redirected to Pelgrane Press for subscription information. Also, for your consideration, a kickstarter for a novel set in the 13th Age universe written by Greg Stolze. Find out how to contribute to The Forgotten Monk.

I’ll be tabling with Periscope Studio at the Rose City Comic Con this Saturday and Sunday. I’m currently stocked with copies of the freshly printed 13 True Ways that I will have available among my other books, prints and original art. I hope to see you there!

Remember that I excitedly announced that 13th Age was up for a 2014 ENnie Award or 3? Well, evidently the winners are selected by popular vote. If you are so inclined, please follow this LINK to the ballot and vote for 13th Age in categories Best Game, Best Rules, and Product of the Year. (Then go ahead and place your bets secure in the knowledge that you rocked the vote.) Voting ends tomorrow, so don’t hesitate.
Detail from an illustration in the core book, page 73 seen here: And here’s the original sketch. Hey! The numbers keep changing, don’t they?! That bookie can’t be trusted!

Boltstrike Pillar is a massive stone column that twists and
turns seven stories into the air. The tower has been a node of
supernatural forces for ages. It may have started as a moreor-
less natural formation, but over the centuries it has been
partially hollowed out and carved into living spaces and magical
workshops. Around the tower is a walled area with a few stone
and timber dwellings and storage structures, a well, etc. Other
features of the living space outside the wall depend on which
icon holds power. -p. 301, 13th Age Core Book
Boltstrike Pillar appears in Chapter 10, the “Blood and Lightning” adventure in the 13th Age core book. Below is the rough draft and a bonus sketch for a different adventure that Rob was toying with at the time.
