13th Age Fantasy RPG Now Available for Pre-Order
Retailers can now preorder 13th Age, the new fantasy roleplaying game from the lead designers of 3rd and 4th edition D&D, through their favorite distributor to guarantee special pricing and discount. Retailers who participate in the free Bits and Mortar program can also offer customers who buy 13th Age a free PDF download of the finished game, so they can start playing right away.
Ever since Pelgrane Press –who made a strong showing at last year's ENnie awards –announced the first 13th Age playtest in March 2012, buzz has been building for the new game by designers Jonathan Tweet and Rob Heinsoo. 13th Age mixes d20-rolling, dragon-slaying, treasure-hunting fun with innovative story mechanics. The result is a game that encourages creative homebrewing and epic storytelling from players and GMs.
After successful demos at multiple conventions and enthusiastic reviews on Forbes.com. EN World and RPG.net, 13th Age is being mentioned in the same breath as D&D Next and Pathfinder. With no new competitive products on the horizon, this looks like a very good time to check out 13th Age. More info is available at www.13thAge.com.
