Stone Thief play test report…. sort of… ;)

The Stone Thief is an old and cunning Living Dungeon. For unknown ages, it has slithered through the Underworld, rising to consume towers and cities or other, lesser dungeons. Now, it has your scent. It swims through the earth, eager to steal everything you cherish, eager to drag you down into its hellish labyrinth.

The dungeon’s coming for you. Kill it before it kills you.

Written by Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan, the Stone Thief is campaign book currently in development for 13th Age.  Earlier this month a portion of the campaign was released for a playtest and we eagerly signed up.  As per usual playtest rules, details of the adventure cannot be publicized until the full campaign is officially released, but Pelgrane Press was kind enough to grant us permission to share photos of our game.  Please read no further if you wish to avoid spoilers.

Aww look, a kitty!






Still here?  Okay.

Listen to me…

The human world is a mess

Life under the sea is better than anything they got up there.

Sahuagin Fight 1

The seaweed is always greener
In somebody else’s lake
You dream about going up there
But that is a big mistake
Just look at the world around you
Right here on the ocean floor
Such wonderful things surround you
What more is you lookin’ for?

Sahuagin Fight 2

Under the sea
Under the sea
Darling it’s better
Down where it’s wetter
Take it from me
Up on the shore they work all day
Out in the sun they slave away
While we devotin’
Full time to floatin’
Under the sea

Sahuagin Fight 3

Down here all the fish is happy
As off through the waves they roll
The fish on the land ain’t happy
They sad ’cause they in their bowl
But fish in the bowl is lucky
They in for a worser fate
One day when the boss get hungry
Guess who’s gon’ be on the plate

Sahuagin Priest

Under the sea
Under the sea
Nobody beat us
Fry us and eat us
In fricassee
We what the land folks loves to cook
Under the sea we off the hook
We got no troubles
Life is the bubbles

Swordapus 1

Under the sea
Under the sea
Since life is sweet here
We got the beat here
Even the sturgeon an’ the ray
They get the urge ‘n’ start to play
We got the spirit
You got to hear it
Under the sea

Swordapus 2

The newt play the flute
The carp play the harp
The plaice play the bass
And they soundin’ sharp
The bass play the brass
The chub play the tub
The fluke is the duke of soul


The ray he can play
The lings on the strings
The trout rockin’ out
The blackfish she sings
The smelt and the sprat
They know where it’s at
An’ oh that blowfish blow


Under the sea
Under the sea
When the sardine
Begin the beguine
It’s music to me
What do they got? A lot of sand
We got a hot crustacean band
Each little clam here
know how to jam here
Under the sea

Pirates 1

Each little slug here
Cuttin’ a rug here
Under the sea
Each little snail here
Know how to wail here
That’s why it’s hotter
Under the water
Ya we in luck here
Down in the muck here
Under the sea

Pirates 3


One of the many levels available in the upcoming Stone Thief campaign.

(No little mermaids were harmed in the playtest of this adventure.)
