13th Age Game Master’s Screen and Resource Book

The 13th Age GM’s Screen and Resource Book features incredible new art from 13th Age lead artists Aaron McConnell and Lee Moyer, a 64-page resource book, and a fold out map of the Dragon Empire.

The Gamemaster Screen

The screen is three-ply and portrait-oriented, with the essential information a GM needs to run the game:

  • Skill Check DCs, Trap Obstacle Attacks & Impromptu Damage by Environment
  • Conditions
  • Chum the Adventure (d20 roll when you wish to be entertained)
  • Intercepting and Disengaging
  • Baseline Stats for Monsters, Monster Equivalents, Customizing a Monster, and Leveling a Monster
  • GP Per Full Heal-Up, and Optional No Math System
  • Item Chakras and Default Bonuses
  • Consumables Costs
  • GM Stuff to Remember
  • Rule Recaps for: Ambush & Surprise, Death & Dying, Fight in Spirit, Flee, Grabbed (new rules), Invisibility, No Recoveries, Ongoing Damage, Rally, Resistance, Shooting into Melee, Temporary Hit Points, Unarmed Attacks

13th Age GM Book NPC sampleThe Resource Book

The resource book includes advice, guidance and rules for:

  • Using icon relationship rolls, with variations on the icon roll mechanic and examples of how benefits and complications can work in play
  • Creating 13th Age adventures on the spot, with zero preparation
  • Running montages (introduced in Organized Play, and expanded here)
  • Incorporating terrain into battles, including creating environments and locations for different tiers of play
  • Building better battles
  • Helping players craft useful and interesting backgrounds, with advice on handling backgrounds that seem too powerful or too weak
  • Creating memorable NPCs, with a sampling of icon-related NPCs—each with a brief description, Three Things that bring them to life in player’s minds, and suggested monster roles and initiative to guide GMs in building them out using the DIY monster rules
  • And moreDragon Empire map!

I bought this on the Pelgrane web site or I'd give it 5 stars here. The 13th Age GM screen is the most useful GM screen I have ever owned. And I started rpgs with White Box D&D and bought a ton of screens over the decades.

In particular I love the Conditions, Rule Recaps, Customizing a Monster, Leveling a Monster, & GM Stuff to Remember. Things I would be fumbling in the core book for before I had the screen.

Same. Wish I could give it 5 stars here too. GM Screen aside, I also really like the Resource Book. There's a lot of good information in there like Montage Scenes that can be carried over to other games besides 13A.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
