Description Edit | History

From Troll Lord Games website:

The first issue's cover is a wonderful painting by the world famed artist Rowena. Called the Dragon Hatchling, it seems a fitting cover for our first issue. If your not familiar with Rowena take a moment and view her gallery on the web at: http://www.rowenaart.com/
What's inside:

"The Poetry of Rowena." Rowena, well known for her beautiful, evocative paintings is no stranger to literary efforts. She has graced this issue with her art and poetry.

"Alea iacta est" with these words Caesar crossed the Rubicon and conquered Rome. "The die is cast" leads us into what Castles and Crusades is all about.

"The Six Principles of Winging It." Casey Canfield supplies some poignant tips on how to game master on the fly.

"Crossed Bows." A look at the longbow and crossbow.

"Robert E. Howard: From the Bizarre to the Bazaar." An essay exploring the creator of Conan's unusual history and growth into an iconic fantasy writer.

"Frankenberry & the Crack Parade." A compilation of the serial stories that follow the exploits of, well, good sir Frankenberry and his Crack Parade.

"The Theurgist's Lethe." Fiction by Dan Cross. "Most bards would begin their tale somewhere in the middle, to recount with contagious lyricism the brave deeds of some intrepid hero of yore....Alas our tale is about no hero."

And yet there is more...
