5e: Draugr

The way we present Fifth Edition monsters and NPCs these days is a quite standardized for us, but that was not always the case. Before there was a 5e OGL, we used the 3.5/Pathfinder’s SRD to make our 5e books. Because of that, we had Deadly Delves: Rescue from Tyrkaven available much earlier than anyoneContinue reading “5e: Draugr”

5e: Conjure Celestial

Last week, we took a look at the lowest level spell to conjure monsters to fight on your behalf: conjure animals. Today, we are skipping to the opposite extreme and going to the highest level spell that lets you have help from beyond (other than gate): conjure celestial. Conjure Celestial 7th-level conjuration Casting Time: 1Continue reading “5e: Conjure Celestial”

5e: What Levels Need More Adventures?

I’ve asked this before for Pathfinder. Now that we are trying to ramp up our 5e production, it is a solid idea to find out what levels of adventures you would like to see. I know many would like to say, “All levels,” but we do not have the resources to do adventures for levelsContinue reading “5e: What Levels Need More Adventures?”

5e: Conjure Animals

Last week, we started a series on the summon monster spells for Pathfinder. Summoning works differently in Fifth Edition and I thought it would be a good idea to take a few moments to discuss the spells one by one. Today, let’s start with the lowest level one: conjure animals, a third level spell forContinue reading “5e: Conjure Animals”

5e Adventures for Conventions

If you are running a Fifth Edition game at a convention this fall, you could run an adventure from the official living game that is designed for the players to “win” or you could run an adventure built for fun with intrigue in mind, like ours are. Three of our Deadly Delve adventures are bothContinue reading “5e Adventures for Conventions”

What Are We Up To?

We love to hear what our favorite game companies are working on as much as everyone else. Typically we do not announce very far in advance, but frankly, there is no reason not to share with you what we are working on. So here we go: Coming in September is the previously announced Book ofContinue reading “What Are We Up To?”

5e: Path of the Pyrorager

I mentioned before I am working on subclasses for Fifth Edition games. I’ve been working on fighter archetypes, barbarian paths and more. Today I would like to show off one of the barbarian paths I have been working on. It is still unedited (my editors hate it when I do this) so all the kinksContinue reading “5e: Path of the Pyrorager”

The 2017 Not Going to Gen Con Sale for Print Books

As you are gearing up for Gen Con, getting ready the year pilgrimage to Indianapolis, I am sad to say that JBE will not be attending this year. That, however, does not mean that you should be sad because we just relaunched our Not Going to Gen Con Sale. This year, it is all aboutContinue reading “The 2017 Not Going to Gen Con Sale for Print Books”

Meet the Iconics: Runa Cloudsoles

There are many projects that I started long ago, got distracted from, and never got back to. One of them was introducing you to all our iconic characters. Well 2-1/2 years late is better than never, right? I would like to share with you the tale of Runa Cloudsoles, our signature cloud dwarf cleric.
