Unfortunately, Google Hangouts On-Air wasn’t not working that evening. We played anyway, but there wasn’t a recording for us to share. I’m pretty upset about that for several reasons, not the lease of which is that we took on a new player, Aaron (@wolfsamurai).

Since you can’t watch session 5, you should check out his videos until our session 6 hits.

Pierce (Heinrich) has been keeping a pretty thorough log of the game as we play. LAcking a video, I give you his written account of session 5, followed by my usual notes.

Familiar Disclamer: I should remind you that even though I’m a veteran DM, I’ve never run the 13th Age befor this game, and I only played a single session at PAX East. We’re learning as we play, which isn’t always entertaining, but may be useful for new DMs. Also, I don’t know or have the time for edits, so you’re getting the raw session. Fortunately for you, I like to keep them short!


This is an actual play broadcast of Expedition to Castle Ravenloft using the 13th Age RPG.

We spent the first hour introducing characters and talking about what’s different about the 13th Age compared to D&D.

The last half-hour was the start of the game. I am running The Ghosts of Aniel by Stephen Kenson, a free one-shot adventure written for 3rd edition D&D. This short adventure will run directly into the Ravenloft campaign.

Our characters are are:
Ember, the human fighter–played by Bryant (@gamercow).
Vasile, the 1/2-elven bard–played by Jesse
Heinrich, the human cleric–played by Pierce (@sorcerer_blob)
