There was a recommendation in a recent thread about using 13th Age rules in an Eberron campaign to start a new thread about psionics.  So here we are!

How have you been using psionics in your games, if at all?  What would you like to see 13th Age support?

Personally, I haven't had a player request a psionic class, but I've run a Dark Sun adventure, and psionics is a big part of Dark Sun.  I allowed each player to select a talent from a list that was loosely based on the 4E list of Dark Sun psionic talents.  I then bumped up the difficulty on the encounters a bit, to compensate.  This wouldn't be too far off from Eldritch Wizardry's approach to psionics.  But I haven't attempted to create a psion or a battlemind class or anything that complex.

I'd love to hear others' experiences.

I'm going to be putting together a soul knife. It'll be modeled loosely after a combination of the fighter and the monk.

I recall seeing something on G+ or Facebook where the good folks at TLG recommended adventures that we may be interested in obtaining as part of the Kickstarter rewards.  Having scanned both G+ and Facebook, I'm not seeing the post.  Could someone please link to it or paste the contents here?  Thanks!

D&D 30 Day Challenge - Day 17 - Favorite Monster (Animal/Vermin)

Perhaps it's because I love Al-Qadim so much, but the first animal that came to mind was the giant scorpion.  If you've ever been stung by a scorpion, then you know how inadequate the abstraction of hit points is when dealing with even a mundane scorpion, much less a giant one.  A scorpion the size of your pinky will cause agony for hours.  A sting from a giant scorpion would be deadly to all but the most epic heroes, in my estimation.  Great stuff!

I wanted to take a moment to thank +ASH LAW and all of the good folks at +Pelgrane Press Ltd and Fire Opal Media for the cool icon cards that arrived in the mail, today.  What a great surprise that was!  Thank you!

I just got mine today. So excited. The Prince of Shadows is far and away my favorite Icon portrait, so I'm super happy to have it here.

Did anyone here back Scarlet Heroes or pick it up on DTRPG?  It says it acts "as an overlay over your favorite old-school game to make its adventures playable for single PCs or very small groups. It shares the same classic statistics and basic game mechanisms as these old-school favorites, but by changing the interpretation of these numbers it makes it possible for a single courageous adventurer to dare perils that would otherwise threaten a half-dozen freebooters. With Scarlet Heroes, a GM can pull out a favorite module, grab a convenient friend, and a have a full night's adventure with no tweaking, alteration, or adjustment of the material needed."

Would this work for 13th Age?  I often run single-PC adventures to introduce people to 13th Age (or RPGs, in general), and it would be interesting to expand that to published campaigns intended for entire parties of characters.

+Jason Smith, yeah, there's lots of good stuff in Red Tide for GMs of any FRPG.  I believe it's because I purchased on Red Tide on DTRPG that I received the email when Scarlet Heroes was released, come to think of it.

Thankfully, I've never been in such a dark place that I've needed this, but you never know when a re-post could save someone's life.

Simon also told me that it will include a short guide for f20 players, so they can pretty much play it just using the information on the character sheets. It also refers them to the SRD if they need to look something up. So not quite a quickstart version, but close.

D&D 40th Anniversary Blog Hop Challenge Day 18

Q: First gaming convention you ever attended.

This is going to be a short post, but I include it here for completeness.  I've never attended a gaming convention.  I enjoy RPGs, but I'm not sure I'll ever invest the time and money needed to travel to a convention.  Maybe some day....

Everyone was friendly from the moment I walked through the door. Not only that, but my car was ready sooner than estimated. I can't remember the last time that happened -- usually, it's the other way around. Everything is running great on my car, too. No more groaning noise when I turn at low speeds. Thanks!
