Post Crusader 24
Spotted something funny...

Head for the back of the book, and look at the order form. Look under the "Liquidation" category.

Now that's some liquidation! You from New Jersey? lol

Haha. Funny.

I'd also like to mention that I love the cover of this issue. Pete Bradley's artwork really gives C&C a certain feel to it, that is slightly different than other fantasy RPGs. But honestly, this cover art is wasted on the Crusader. This piece NEEDS to be on a book about terrible, dark magics or something. The feeling that this cover provides to me is of a young woman about to be terribly corrupted by foul magics, yet she was never a perfectly pure soul either. She was already a dabbler in dark magic. I llove this painting.

The other piece of art from this issue is one page 1, the elf with the bearded axe. Wow, that drawing is also jaw-dropping. That is another peice that should be in a book somewhere.

Yeah, they normally sell that for $10, not full retail.

Good issue, I like the return of the historical article and the decision to do their own Ecology series.

I do think Steve could have gone into a lot more details in giving suggestion on how to run games ranging through the various levels, but as a summary kind of series of articles it is pretty good.

I also got a kick out of the joke advertisements for there finally being a CKG available.

Plus I met the CK with the 20 volumes of house rules.

I have to say perfect timing on the Wenefar magic item! Its history fed right into what I needed for my home game!

Nice issue, I've only pages through it and will dig in tomorrow.

Omote, how about the artwork on the inside of the back cover???

Awesome!!

Yeah, they should make the inside back cover into a print (Which I am sure Peter has already done.) and make it available as desk top wall paper.

I'm still trying to find time to sit down and read it, though I've thumbed through it.

You read my comic! And remembered it! :o

I think it gets funnier once (1) we get past the reprints, and (2) we get into the real plot. The bad thing about my style of comic is that it takes a while to get to the point. Not so bad when I did 5 strips a week for the old college paper, but a little slow with a quarterly/monthly/occasionally magazine. ;)

It helps that I have met such CK's. People have accused me of having a lot of house rules, but I am able to brush those comments off because I have seen what excessive house rules are.

#24 will probably take a wee while to get over here, what with the bank holidays and the backlog from the snowy weather we've been having, but it'll be lovely to get hold of an issue again. I do agree with JediOre about the binding, though; on a nice, slim little mag like the Crusader, staple binding is fine, and has some operational advantages. It only becomes a problem when you get 100+ page issues like the old Dragon mags.

Hey I am that DM, and I resemble that comic!!! :o

I just got my free PDF care of Twitter, Fat Dragon and the kind folks at Troll Lord Games. I loved it too, seriously considering contributing and subscribing - reminds me of the old Different Worlds magazine (still one of my favorites).

Excellent work!

Steve said "Hey, do you happen to have something laying around I can use for a crusader cover?"

I had that laying around. The picture that is. Not the model. It would be awesome to have the model laying around. :)
