I’ve written a review of vampire/espionage thriller RPG Night’s Black Agents over at io9. The review includes an interview with NBA creator Kenneth Hite. Check it out!
On the surface, Pelgrane Press’ 13th Age RPG looks like a slightly tweaked D&D rule set with a world populated by classic fantasy archetypes. You might think, “Why bother?” I did, at first. But then I had a chance to play it at Gen Con, with co-designer Rob Heinsoo as DM. That’s when I discovered there’s a lot more going on with 13th Age than first impressions might suggest.
