Tome of Beasts: Oculo Swarm

This collection of hundreds of eyes floats along, trailing ganglia and dripping caustic fluid that sizzles when it hits the ground. Failed Experiment. An oculo swarm results from an experiment to create a live scrying sensor that went poorly. Once set loose, these horrors attain a form of distributed self‑awareness.

Warlock’s Apprentice: Bone Colossus (Necrotech)

Bone Colossus (Necrotech) Standing over thirty feet tall, this undead titan is composed of thousands of tiny chittering skeletons, knitted together into one enormous creature of bones and skulls by foul necromantic magic. As the towering colossus strides forward, the earth shakes beneath its feet. Necrotech Titans.

Inbar’s Guide to the Northlands: Farm Life and Customs

Dearest Mother and Father, It has been a few weeks since I sent my last letter. I have since left my companion Aksel in the forest and continued North to a farm in the shadows of Reykerbrand. Ger, Eyba, and their children work the harsh lands tirelessly and allow me to stay with them in exchange for my assistance with their crops and livestock.

The Amber Bazaar: Double-Edged Magic II

Midgard Icons: Baba Yaga

Midgard is a place of war and intrigue, where powerful figures pursue agendas that have roots in the distant past. In some cases, their plots, alliances, and enmities are older than Midgard itself. In the 13th Age Roleplaying Game, these individuals are known as icons—and adventurers, even those just beginning their careers, are vital to their intrigues. Player characters can use their relationships with their chosen icons as a resource during...

From the Archives: Pinning Down the Dusk Queen’s Shadow

Last year, the kobolds put out Shadows of the Dusk Queen, written by none other than Kobold art director Marc Radle. A tale of a mysterious queen in a dark tower, the adventure is set in “a forest of shadows.” The location is deliberately ambiguous, so the Shadow Forest can be dropped in anywhere that a GM needs it to be, in any sufficiently spooky woods. But the book is definitely Midgard material as the Dusk Queen herself is a shadow fey...

Welcome to Midgard: Fey Roads of Dornig

Much of the countryside of Dornig is forbidding for the traveler. Two ancient forests dominate the land— the Arbonesse and the Tomierran—but the rest of the countryside consists of smaller but no-less-deep forests of younger vintage, high moors, and deep, tree-covered valleys. Merchant caravans lurch along ancient roads that were first laid by dwarves working for their elven masters. The rivers all flow north to the icy peril of the Nieder...

Out of the Frying Pan: A Trip to the Coast

Trouble rises in the jungle as territorial hostilities between the kryt and cueyatl disrupt the operations of the local zinjs (or farming communities) along the Spice Coast. Conflict in this guerrilla war continues to flare as the conflict zones shift eastward toward the coast. Low on men, money, and morale, some local beys (or leaders) have enlisted or compelled service and support from specific organizations, freelancers, and...

Warlock’s Apprentice: Shadow of Death

Draped in black funerary garb, ribbons of which move of their own accord, the creature has the appearance of a skeletal angel. Angels of Death. Once beings of light and beauty who championed justice across the planes, the shadows of death formed after some agent of entropy discarded their bodies into the Void. Their celestial forms protected them from ultimate annihilation, but their minds were forever darkened by the plane’s dread influence....

Tome of Beasts: Owl Harpy

This winged woman’s face is wreathed in a headdress of feathers; her luminous eyes and aquiline nose lend beauty to her feral demeanor. Her sharp, taloned feet seem even more inhuman by comparison. Harpy Queens. An owl harpy is a queen among her kind, possessing superior grace and intelligence and an owl’s predatory instinct and savage appetite. Owl harpies never grow hair, only feathers, which often wreathe their faces and crown their...
