Some of the articles listed are subject to change.

The Crusader is a Journal dedicated to games and the gamers who play them. Within its pages lie a plethora of articles that touch upon many of our common interests. Though each issue sports at least one crunchy bit rules article for Castles & Crusades and/or Gary Gygax's Lejendary Adventure, the magazines focus is much more broad. The Journal offers articles that range from the common and simple How To articles, to advice, fiction, poetry, humor, art and more. Feature articles include the following:

Volume 3, Number 10

Cover Art: "StarSiege" by Peter Bradley

Special Features

StarSiege, a game of science fiction role play. Using the Siege mechanic Starsiege brinks a whole universe of possibilities to the game table. Take a peek at this first insider preview to the next generation of Siege Play.

Regular Columns

How it All Happened, by E. Gary Gygax:

Risky Things, Part I

The future Judge in Gygaxs TSR case takes a shot at Gary with a 410 Shotgun and other encounters with firearms; throw in a mad bull and other sundries, and you have a risky summer indeed.

Alea iacta est or "The Die is Cast," by Stephen Chenault:

Swords and Sorcery

The classic motif of our hobby, the words Swords & Sorcery conjure very distinct images and feelings. But it is fantasy at its best.

Auld Wyrmish, by Mike Stewart:

Infernal Hosts

This article provides a quick discussion on a possible view of the Lower Planes for Castles & Crusades as well as statistics for some of the nastier horned and forked-tailed lot that inhabit it!

Hammer & Anvil, by Casey Cannfield:

The Campaign Setting The Environs, Part II

I drill down into the detail of the setting, providing functional detail of the areas major towns, NPCs, and areas, along with insight as to their development.

Oh, so is this how I find out? ;) Huh?! Is it! Heheh.

Looking forward to it. In my games, things are likely extremely different. Always like to see how other people use these most interesting, and diverse, critters.

Nah, this article is predominantly philosophic (like the old Dragon article "Politics of Hell")...though it's as much a historical essay as an AW article. Very little specifics to game effects and "crunch"; which is a bit of a departure for AW but there it is.
