13th Age: Now For a Deadly Monster

July 11, 2014 Leave a comment

13th Age CompatibleSo I’ve been working on a number of 13th Age monsters in my spare time. I am really liking what I’ve done so far. However, there are a few that I would like feedback on how to tighten them up, particularly on the body slump ability. I would really appreciate your feedback. Note: this isn’t edited yet, so the verbage may be a little rough.


Starak

AC 29
PD 27
MD 23
HP 1,296
This enormous, fanged, stubby horned, clawed, razor-backed, ugly quadruped bears a skin of living rock.
Huge 13th level wrecker
[aberration]
Initiative +18

C: Bite +18 vs AC—100 damage
Natural odd hit: Starak can make a free buried alive attack.

Jawbone impale +18 vs AC (2 attacks)—90 damage
Natural 16+: Target’s speed is hampered until the end of the starak’s next turn.

R: Earth spike +18 vs AC—180 damage
Natural 12+ hit: Starak can make a free knock flying attack.

[Special trigger] Knock flying +18 vs PD—Unless the target can fly, the target is hurrled into the air and falls back to the ground, dealing 50 damage
Natural even hit: Target is hampered until the end of the starak’s next turn.
Natural 18+: Target is knocked into the far away range increment.

Acid immunity: A starak does not take acid damage.

Burrow: As the standard monster ability (see the 13th Age Core Rulebook, Chapter 7).

Nastier Specials
Foot stomp (all nearby enemies) +18 vs PD—target is stuck and vulnerable until the end of the starak’s next turn

[Special trigger] Buried alive +18 vs PD—Starak uses its pointy nose to move some of the earth and deposit the target in the hole before covering the target back up, dealing 50 ongoing damage. The target must start making last gasp saves as it is crushed by the mounds of dirt on top of it. The ongoing damage continues until either the target has succeeded his last gasp save (where it digs itself out) or the target is rescued (requiring another character to succeed a hard save to undig the character) or the target dies.

Traveller: d66: Your Faith in Your Allies is Your Weakness

June 19, 2014 Leave a comment

d66Available now are three new d66 lists for your game in the far future. The first of which is d66 Reasons Why Your Ally Cannot Help Right Now. Allies can help you out a tight spot, but they have lives of their own and are not always available to help you every instant of every day. This is not a mere list of excuse, but a list of serious problems that can lead to exciting new adventures.

Hundreds, if not thousands, of ships were sent out into the blackness of space carrying crews that were asleep for hundreds of years of living each day aboard the ship, waiting for the day they may find a star with habitable planets to colonize. Some of those ships are still in transit. Others have arrived, but the colony remembers those ships and their names. d66 Generational/Sleeper Ship Names gives you the names of hope and peace that the people of Earth left for the stars, only to find those stars are already inhabited by man kind.

d66 Personal Spacecraft Names 2 delivers even more names appropriate for someone’s personal pleasure ship. Pirates or corporations need not apply; these ships belong to the rich and the meager owners of outer space travel.

Traveller: Foreven Worlds: Vehicles Unleashed

May 20, 2014 Leave a comment

image The people of the Foreven Sector have their own collection of vehicles that they use to travel the worlds. With little infrastructure, the people here must rely on the few worlds that are built up enough to produce such machines, even if they are their enemies. Whether you are building a colony, arming a police force, or starting a war, the vehicle you need lies within. 

Foreven Worlds: Vehicles of the Frontier is a 20 page supplement for Traveller. Inside you will find:

  • 3 Civilian Battledresses and 4 Military Battledresses,
  • 7 Civilian Vehicles,
  • 2 Cargo Vehicles,
  • 3 Police Vehicles,
  • 4 Military Vehicles, and
  • descriptions of how each fits into the Foreven Sector and in your game.

What destiny lies in your hands?

Traveller: Foreven Worlds: Vehicles Preview

May 15, 2014 2 comments

FW Vehicles of the Frontier We are currently putting the final touches on Foreven Worlds: Vehicles of the Frontier and we thought we would share a pair of the final pages here. First up, we have the Cyberpuma, an extremely fast sports car for the wealthier individuals in the Foreven Sector. You will note it has an Optional Equipment package so you you can upgrade your vehicle for a small fee. The other vehicle here is a Zhodani grav tank that is no longer in production, but is sold to many of the Consulate’s allies throughout the sector. Click on the images below to see them upclose.

These vehicles are designed for the Foreven Worlds setting but they work just as well anywhere else in the Official Traveller Universe or any other setting you desire. Their descriptions include minor references to Foreven Worlds, making it easy for you to integrate the vehicles into any setting you desire.

Traveler: Foreven Worlds: Massina Needs Your Help

April 29, 2014 Leave a comment

Massina SubsectorThe ignored and forgotten regions of the Zhodani Consulate of Massina Subsector are still populated with people that need your help. With insufficient resources to maintain an enlightened society, problems that law enforcement officials are unequipped to handle arise everywhere. With danger lurking behind every asteroid, how will you change lives? Will you start a cult or stop one from spreading? Will you put a stop to a corporation that treats its employees like slaves, or will you join those rulers? Only you can decide.

Foreven Worlds: Massina Subsector is a 13 page supplement for Traveller. Inside you will find:

  • intricate details for 7 worlds of this subsector and the people that make their way in this ignored region of Zhodani space,
  • an overview of all the other planets in the subsector,
  • a detailed, full-color map of the subsector,
  • and plot hooks for you to create your own campaign.
