|If you saw Rob Heinsoo's preview of 13th Age in Kobold Quarterly, you know that he's teamed up with 3rd edition D&D lead designer Jonathan Tweet to create 13th Age, a new fantasy RPG due out from Pelgrane Press later this year. You can play 13th Age as a standalone game or use it as a collection of great house rules for Pathfinder, D&D, and other fantasy roleplaying games.
Rob and Jonathan are running a Kickstarter that ends this week, to fund the first expansion book for the game: http://bit.ly/13TrueWays
If you back the 13 True Ways Kickstarter at the $50 level or above you're emailed a free PDF of the beta version of the game, with no commitment to continue as a backer -- so if you haven't yet looked at 13th Age, this is a swell try-before-you-buy program.
The campaign's reached its funding goal, and recently broke through a stretch goal bringing a necromancer class into the game. If it reaches $50K, Rob and Jonathan will add a battle captain class to 13th Age, filling the much-oved role of martial healer.
