Pelgrane Press has released a short 13th Age Quickstart to enable gamers to dip their toes into the popular fantasy roleplaying game. The quickstart will give players a good idea of what sets 13th Age apart from other RPGs. The 19 page PDF is available for free at DriveThruRPG.
About the PDF:
This quickstart document includes the rules and advice you’ll need to run or play a game or three of 13th Age Roleplaying Game. You’ll also need a couple of other things: an introductory adventure, pre-generated characters, and some d20s, d8s, and other dice.
Our adventures Crown of Axis and The Strangling Sea were written with first-time players in mind. Using the rules in this quickstart, you should have everything you need to run them. You can browse free adventures or get character sheets on the 13th Age Resources page.
This is not the 13th Age Core Book, which is a beautiful, gamer-friendly book packed with extra content and written in the authors’ distinctive style.
It is however, an excellent, playable game, and we hope it will tempt you into trying the real thing
