Seeking Volunteer Editors for 13th Age Glorantha Project

The Escalation team is working with Evan Franke of Exploring Glorantha fame on a 13th Age Glorantha special issue: Red Moon and Warring Kingdoms. This exciting sourcebook will introduce followers of the Lunar Way as the heroes of their own stories. Far from Dragon Pass and the Lunar Empire where the 13th Age Glorantha (13G) core book takes place, these Lunars are faced with an existential threat to their way of life in the lands of Fronela.

The book will establish the central conflict in the region and provide a history and gazetteer, serving as an primer to those 13th Age Glorantha players who were introduced to the setting in the 13G core book. It will also offer new classes, playable races, and feats. We hope the book proves valuable to both 13th Age fans and Glorantha fans, even if you're unfamiliar with the setting or the 13th Age system.

To produce this book while still releasing future issues of the Escalation fanzine, we need help from the community. A draft of the book is already complete, and now we're seeking volunteer editors to ensure that it's the highest quality when it's released. We need copyeditors and developmental editors. Whether you're familiar with Glorantha or with the 13th Age game system (or neither one), we could use your help—you don't need experience with both the setting and the game system to lend a hand.

We understand that volunteer work isn't your day job—Escalation is put together exclusively by volunteers, so we totally get it! We'll work with your schedule, your availability, and your areas of expertise to connect you with chapters that you're best suited for.

If you're interested in learning more, please email us at escalationfanzine (at) gmail (dot) com. We'd love to provide additional details that you can use to consider whether you're able to assist us in getting this work to the fan community.


  1. Is there any update on this project?


    1. Hi there. Thanks for checking in on the project. It's still actively being worked on. We're a small group of volunteers, but we're making progress all the time. All chapters are written, and are in some phase of editing. After that, the book will need additional artwork and needs to be laid out.

    2. Thanks, I saw a reply on the Glorantha forum not long after I posted and meant to come back here and say. Keep up the great work!
