13th Sage: Wicker Golem

The wicker golem appears in Shards of the Broken Sky, where it’s one of several golems performing various magical maintenance functions.

Rob Heinsoo emerged from his subterranean lair to give us this update on the status of the 13th Age RPG, the 13 True Ways expansion, his new Shards of the Broken Sky adventure and more. As you might have seen in Simon Rogers’ Through the Scrying Glass column, I finished the manuscript for 13th Age in November and turned the […]
