Is this still true, about Lejendary Adventure articles in Crusader? If not, might be best to pull this line from the ad-copy.

Love how the Crusader keeps getting better. I know a goal is to make it interesting for folks outside of the C&C family, but I love the crunchy stuff!

This is James M. Ward the managing editor of Crusader. I just want to say a few things.

If you are interested in writing for the magazine we are always looking for good articles. Feel free to contact me at sirjmw@aol.com with ideas and I will tell you if they are good or not.

I sure would like it if all the readers of this web site would be subscribers of the magazine. I made Steve give a nice discount in subscribing. Please sign up. I can tell you that 2009 is going to be an amazing year and you won't want to miss one issue.

C&C fans are great supporters and I for one really appreciate the feedback I'm getting about the magazine.

Thanks,

James M. Ward

Tim coming aboard with a new column sounds good, Jim. Any clues to what the article will focus on?

Wow -- I think as soon as payday comes 'round, I'm going to have to subscribe. I was too young (and for about a year or two of it, too unborn ) to get in on the glory days of The Dragon. Here it sounds though like, as a certain E. Blues might say: "We're gettin' da band back together."

I learned a lot by watching DRAGON magazine grow. I was also its publisher for several years and so you will see the best features of DRAGON appearing in CRUSADER magazine. If you haven't gotten your subscription already, please seriously consider getting a sub to the magazine right now. It could be possible you are getting a real collectible just like DRAGON #1 is now.

best,

Are there any features of The Dragon (like Giants in the Earth) or other article segments (ie, maybe the Creature Feature) or something you would like to see added, Jim? If wanted, I could easily crank out something new monster-wise every month.

And, in case you weren't aware (I wouldn't expect you to know this,) I am the guy who did the monsters for C&C originally, and that freak who submitted the Engineering Dungeons article which was for your first issue as main man at Crusader.

I have your email if you would like me to send something.

Serleran,

please get in contact with me at sirjmw@aol.com and we can talk about articles. I'm always looking to add people to write for Crusader magazine. After all, now that we are 36 pages I need to think about the time when we are 48 pages long.
