Okay then, what were your thoughts on the 13A monk? There's one in my group and I wanna see how your thoughts line up to his.

I think from a flavor perspective, the Monk has a lot of good fluff! The moves all sound really cool and the Opening-Flow-Finisher system is an unique system that makes you really think about what moves you’re gonna use next each round. 

The downside is that I think it also limits you a lot as well. Being locked into effectively a third of your move pool on any given turn feels stifling, and there were a lot of moments where I really could have used the effect of a move that I wouldn’t be allowed to attempt until 2 turns later. In my experience, any time a tabletop RPG tells you “You get to do this 2 turns from now!” it might as well say “This will work like maybe once or twice in the whole campaign.” It’s just too unpredictable for that stuff to work out consistently.

Those are just my thoughts, however. It’s totally possible your monk will have a different experience and I’d love to hear what they have to think as well!

What do you think about the DnD5e tiefling? I'm playing my first session right now!

I’ve never played a Tiefling in any edition, but I think they’re an interesting race! They don’t seem that different from 4e, at least from a lore/general traits point of view. I think some people tend to not like Tieflings (and Dragonborn) because they’re pretty different from the typical “Human, Elf, Dwarf” rotation but honestly I always pick something that’s not one of those if I can. I mostly trend towards Dragonborn but I could see myself making a Tiefling in a future campaign!

THIS FUCKER IS BACK? 
While warming up to do some other drawings I decided to sketch up Algernon’s current design in LP 13th Age. He’s more of a rock/metalhead punk in this game world, and basically only took the job of guarding Equinox Manor because he’s a huge fan of Grand Handsome. I also decided his outfit wasn’t JoJo enough before.
(My favorite part of this personally is his smile in the top left there. Al you are such a fucking dork!!)

Thought that last post was one of those “Woops Drakk posted a thing now time to wait 3 months for his next thing” well TOO BAD. 
I felt the need to make a height chart for my main troupe of characters! 
Key Points:
Dragonspawn/kin/folk/men/people/fuckers are usually depicted in RPG books as being big beefy types, but all three of mine are kinda oddballs I guess. Beowulf has more of a swimmers physique, Scarlett doesn’t have much muscle (spellcasters are extremely rare for their kind, in the lore of our 13th Age game she’s literally the only one), and Algernon is really short for their kind (and has really bad posture making it even worse)
For easy reference; Scar and Beo are about a head taller than most humans, while Algernon is around the height of an average human unless he actually stands up straight.
Why is Scarletts hair different did she go and get a new design since the last time I drew her?
Why did I even call it a height chart when 2/3rds of them are leaning over? It’s impossible to do a proper one. They can’t not make fun of Al’s shortness. He’s only behaving in this one cause he hasn’t noticed the others yet.
