Description Edit | History

In this issue:

Conventions are this month's topic. We're still coming down from ConJure, and thought we'd share some of our views on the subject. For those less interested in conventions, we also have two articles of GM tips. Plus all the usual stuff - letters, forum, links and the big fifth installment of the History of Role-Playing. Enjoy. Ed.
