AGE of the Ring: Minions

Image used with the permission of George Doutsiopoulos For all its flaws, one of the things I liked about D&D 4E were minions. Although weak, I think that they help to convey just how much more capable the heroes are while still packing a punch. Since they are so easily dealt with, one common feature they all have are “death throes” or a parting shot … Continue reading AGE of the Ring: Minions

I have taken a bit of hiatus from AGE, but am looking to … Continue reading Sword Skills for AGE

This has changed somewhat, as I am a player in a Fantasy Age game and where most of the players made characters using the expanded classes. For now though, here are some findings, observations, and impressions from the playtest. BARD This is … Continue reading Expanded Classes: Playtest Report

Rise of Machines: Androids & Archons for Fantasy Age

ANDROID Made to resemble their creators but bound to serve them, androids operate in a number of industrial and commercial purposes from menial labor to house-keeping. Androids wrestle with the meaning of their existence and against a society that does not see them as equals or recognize their individuality. They appear more or less human-like with exposed circuitry, plated skin, glowing eyes, or any number of artificial features … Continue reading Rise of Machines: Androids & Archons for Fantasy Age
