Description Edit | History

This issue's theme was Tables Are Turned with LARPs, including:

  • An introduction to interactive role-playing by Mind's Eye Theater developer, Richard Dansky
  • A live-action Star Wars mini-adventure!
  • New rules to use DRAGONLANCE: FIFTH AGE cards in interactive games
  • Updated LIVING Campaign news and LIVING CITY Character Generation Guidelines

It also had a pre-registration form for the WINTER FANTASY 98 Convention on the inside front mailing cover, and subscription cards for DUNGEON and DRAGON magazines on the inside and outside back mailing cover.

Throughout most of the issue photos were used instead of artwork due to the Live Action theme.
