Dark Pacts & Ancient Secrets introduces six new classes that are compatible with the 13th Age Roleplaying Game: the monstrous Abomination, the destiny-shaping Fateweaver, the mind-bending Psion, the berserking Savage, the dashing Swordmage and the dark-souled Warlock.


A note on the print version: Hardcover and softcover version of this book are in the works and awaiting final check of the proof prints.

Once the printed books are available, I will provide a coupon to each PDF customer to buy a hardcover or softcover at a discount equal to the price of the PDF. That way, you won't pay anything extra if you already want to enjoy this book while waiting for the printed version.


The new classes in detail:

The Abomination

Characters that turn into a monster are a staple in gothic novels, superhero comics and fighting games, but in fantasy RPGs they’ve never quite made it from the monster handbook to the player manual. This class allowed me to showcase everything that is great about the 13th Age Roleplaying Game, the class features, talents, and flexible attacks. Each abomination is literally a One Unique thing, whether it’s a living torch, a walking plant thing, or a lightning-charged brawler from the jungle.

FateweaverThe Fateweaver

In a tabletop RPG, your character can try anything, but they are always slave to the luck of the dice. What if you could break that wall and manipulate the dice directly? What if your spells didn’t just affect the game world, but the narrative? With the fateweaver, you stay two steps ahead, always in control, moving your allies like pawns on a chessboard. At epic levels, you can rewrite the story as it unfolds. You can see the future, mend the past and even discover a version of yourself that never was.

The Psion

Ask any old-school gamer, and they will tell you that they either love or hate psionics. It’s always been that other, different magic system that is rooted in science fiction and cyberpunk as much as fantasy. The version presented in this book tries to stay close to the roots, with the six classic disciplines and a power point system. It’s a complex class that offers a wide variety of ways to build your character. The flexibility also translates into play, with the ability to augment each power as you manifest it. 

SavageThe Savage

You love RPGs because you can blow off steam and smash things? With the savage, you get angrier and smash harder. You have some additional tricks like rushing head first into battle and shouting at people and shaking off wounds. The core message is: You carry a big sword. You attack, and when you hit, you roll damage. Then you attack again and when you hit, you roll more damage. Then you level up, and you roll more dice and bigger dice. 

The Swordmage

Swing a sword with one hand, fling spells with the other. The class in this book is a dedicated defender, combining a high armor class with a sigil power that punishes enemies for ignoring you and attacking your squishier allies. Your spells add fire and lightning to your melee attacks, or block incoming strikes. As a frontline fighter, the swordmage is not quite as tough as the fighter or the paladin, but you’ll have many tricks up your sleeve that more than make up for it. Also, you have a flaming sword. 

The Warlock

Warlocks gain their power through a pact with a powerful entity, represented in this game through the icons. Your spells come in three flavors: curses that weaken your enemies, blasts that melt their faces, and hexes that protect you. It’s a tremendous power that never runs out, but it comes with the risk that one day, your pact lord will come to collect the debt. As the old saying goes: the wizard memorizes the textbook, the sorcerer naps in class but still aces the test, and the warlock sleeps with the teacher. 

...plus over 100 magic items for the new classes, and talents for the core classes to access the spells and powers in this book.

Martin Killmann is a name that anyone in the 13th Age community should have heard of by now. He has put out an absolute treasure trove of content for the game in the form of fan-made character classes, magic items, and more. As far as I am aware of, th [...]

I'm hesitant to allow my players to use third-party classes in my games. I've been burned in the past by drastically unbalanced classes or new options that had unexpected interactions with other options. Given that context, it's all the more surprisi [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
