Alea iacta est! The Die is Cast!

The Crusader Journal is undergoing a slow metamorphosis. While continuing our focus on Castles & Crusades we are branching out into a more main stream of popular culture. Its not more additives for one game system or the other, rather Crusader is looking at all those things that draw us together as a culture, from the movies we watch to the books we read, the technology that drives us and the pastimes that occupy our free space. Join us for the latest issue of Crusader.

We welcome Jonathan Murdock to the pages of Crusader! His webcomic, now in print!
