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: The Beginning of a three part article. Adventures in the Low Country. We take a look at what it takes to run low level adventures, how to balance low hit points with fun challenges.

Product Highlights: More Tainted Lands goodness. Another look at the Mr. Ward’s fabulous box set. Steve Chenault also takes a look at the re-release of the Heart of Glass one of the best d20 sellers in its day, now recrafted for C&C.
