This countdown is creeping up on me!  Evidently I forgot to post to my website over the weekend, so here are the pieces as the days are ticking by at bundleofholding.com for 13th Age.

Day 17

Day 17 of 13th Age at bundleofholding.com. The Island of Omen original charcoal drawing and the final art found on page 276 of the 13th Age Core Book (with some unusual yellow streaking in the photo…I can’t explain it other than to say strange things happen when you’re dealing with the Island of Omen).

Day 18

Continuing the countdown of 20 days at bundleofholding.com, here’s No. 18 (A servitor shield employed at an earth-shaking moment).  Lee Moyer painted the color version found in the core book.

Counting down from 20…19…

13th Age products are going on sale for 20 days at bundleofholding.com, and for the occasion I’m posting 20 pieces daily that were drawn mainly for the core book or 13 True Ways.  Most will include the original pencil or charcoal art, but I plan to sneak in some other unpublished drawings along the way.  The sale started yesterday, so here’s No. 20 (a victorious half-orc gladiator) and No. 19 (a levitating, meditating monk), both from the core book.
