Arcane Emporium, Vol. 8

Bards receive a new Bard College option in this month’s Arcane Emporium. The College of Charm offers players the opportunity to explore the full potential of a bard’s powers of persuasion and beguilement.

This month’s volume is sponsored by Wyrmwood. Wyrmwood is a team of highly talented craftsmen and avid gamers who give back to the tabletop community. In addition to a wonderful selection of dice trays and card deck boxes, they now have GM screens available for pre-order on their website.

This edition of Arcane Emporium includes three articles that are sure to provide something for everyone. In addition to the new player option in our feature article—the College of Charm for bards—we also have an article for using riddles in your games without frustrating half your players as well as an article that revises the armour class system to allow players more flexibility and also make armour more historically accurate. The latter piece is based on the system devised by Brion “Bearclaw” Woods of the SCA, which researches and re-creates the arts and skills of pre-17th century Europe—including armoured combat.
