Description Edit | History

Publisher Blurb:

Crusader Journal
When Caesar stood upon the banks of the Rubicon looking south to Rome he hesitated. Before him stood the vast, complex mechanism of the past, glowing with a host of intricately woven stratagems. With him, he had but one legion, weary from 8 years of brutal war with the Gauls. But when called to surrender himself to the Senate and certain exile he did not hesitate. He called his legionaries to cross into Italy, to cross the Rubicon. And as he did so he said only this: Alea iacta est! The Die is Cast!

The Journal offers articles that range from the common and simple "How To" articles, to advice, adventures, free dungeon maps, new monsters, fiction, game review, humor, art and more.

Feature Articles
Alea Iacta Est: A New Look at an Old Class. The barbarian class is being revisited in the forthcoming 4th Printing of the PH. Take a look at what is going on behind the scenes.
