Shamans in 13G?

Recommended Posts

It doesn't look like any of the 13G character classes translate Runequest shamans? Are there any 13th Age classes more generally that could be adapted to be something like a RQ shaman?

Not easily. You can see how you'd have to bang on the hell mother quite a bit to adapt her to a different type of shaman: that's at least as true for any of the other magical classes.

One of my PCs is actually going to be gaining shamanic abilities in the near future, which I'm treating as multiclassing to a bard variant ("songs" become spirits which you have limited control over, and which eventually escape back into the Spirit World) -- but I'm just using some animistic reflavoring, not trying to duplicate anything about what RQ (or HQ) shamans are supposed to do.

Nothing in 13th Age Glorantha or the 13th Age Rules really looks like a Shaman. Hell Mothers are the closest thing, with their control over Spirits, but it isn't really the same.

One of my players in my current 13G campaign has what he refers to as "gaming ADHD", and he has shown an interest in Praxian shamans.  I did think that either the Hell Mother or maybe the Druid from 13 True Ways would do the job, but both are a lot of work.  The Hell Mother is probably the least work, having said that, because only the flavour really needs to be changed.  The game mechanics could remain the same.

Jeez, wait a minute... I think two-fishes is that player!  Hey, man.  LOL!  (Was it you who wanted to be a shaman?  I thought it was another player, who has already switched characters once on purpose.)

I too love Shamans and miss them in 13G

I have seen that some of you were attempting conversions back in 2019. Did any of you succeed? Would you be so kind as to share your insights?
