Excited isn’t even a word to cover it for some of us…

Dragon Age: The Harsh Winter (Survival Adventure)

Leave a comment

Martin Garner and Robert James Freemantle bring you the survival themed follow up to ‘The Shadow Bloom’ as previously released here. This time the survival elements focus on a snowy scene, where the land itself is the true danger and combats are rare – everything is too cold to come fight you, therefore hiding away, but your group won’t get the chance – they must travel to safety before the Winter takes its full toll on food and supplies.

As always, use whatever elements you want to. If there’s something you don’t like, don’t use it. This is the module the way I ran it for my group, but bear in mind it is recommended as a tier 3 level of difficulty. If some of the target numbers look high, such as TN 19, again, my group were capable of rolling this, and indeed completed it with no fatalities, but they’re a clever lot anyway…

Enjoy!

Vampire Conversion To Age/Thedas

Leave a comment

A Vampire in Dragon Age I hear you gasp? Well, why not? You are the GM, with the fiat God like powers to make things true. In this case, I will take you through my thought process:

Vampires drink blood. Hmmm blood…Blood mages! Blood magic…but not mages…hmmm, so, this is a person who gives himself to Blood Magic’s teachings without having any magic to back it up, you know, cutting self and drinking it. Kinda like Emo Hanger On’s, groupies to the actual blood mages…They can undertake a very deadly ceremony of blood drinking/spirit fusion with a powerful enough mage of their order (who is sacrificed in the process) to create a type of abomination. He must have his own wrists and leg arteries exposed by a runic silver blade, while ingesting all 8 pints of the blood mage.
If the cultist survives the ordeal (less would survive than do with a Grey Warden Joining!) then you have – essentially, a vampire. Their long life is then due to the trapped spirit of the blood mage inside them. I have called this a Blood Apostle Cardinal.
Because they are in touch with the other side of life, with a spirit inside them who feels the pull of the fade upon it at each and every moment, it has access to every focus, from the echoes of knowledge of life after death. This foe is very deadly, consider it only for high levels, or those who are overly foolish or brave.

You can choose to have armour on yours or not.

Because this is a live file, I always have the option of tweaking it from further playtesting, so before you print it for use, make sure you hold the current version!

Minotaur For Riddling Reaver AGE Conversion

Leave a comment

Here is the minotaur that features in Riddling Reaver, converted into AGE to use with my group. I figured I would share and let you make suggestions/playtest. Note, this minotaur is of course my own creation and very different to the one you can find in Green Ronin’s bestiary PDFs. That said, there is room in this world for lots of variations of the “same” thing – after all, creatures vary throughout the species. This particular foe is very tough indeed, but is just that: A particular foe, specially for the Riddling Reaver encounter, where we find a Minotaur who can breathe poison gas and is emaciated now. I have taken it that he was once a great warrior champion of his kind, which only lets you imagine how he would be if not enslaved…
Consider this against tier 3 parties only.

Let me give you some more context from the book. The fight against the beast takes place as you need to claim the ring in his nose, as an adventure item. This means he probably must be slain, unless you concoct some clever ring tear mechanic into the fight for your players, or they request it.

You fight the minotaur in a ring, with a crowd watching and cheering. You are only supposed to last 7 rounds against it, which gives you your prize money.
If you hit 0 hp against this foe, it of course will end the fight, and allies should be able to come in and heal you, thus saving your life. Then, if you still need the ring, another of your party could step into the ring in an attempt to whittle it down further.

Let me know how you get on with it.

Dragon Age: Inquisiton | Official Trailer – The Hero of Thedas

This new Inquisition trailer released 14th October shows more footage of the upcoming game. Also, is it just me, or does that dragon look a heck of a lot like the great dragon from ‘The Silent Grove’?

Play Dragon Age Origins For Free (Limited Time)

Leave a comment

You had better move quick on this one. Origin are offering the original DAO for free, if you add it to your account with them by 14 October. After that, you can play it any when you please. So, my advice, even if you aren’t going to play it yet, add it to the account so you get it free.

Though it loathes me to publish anything that advertises EA, it does appear to be a genuine free offer.
