This Kobold Rising!

Issue #3 of Wolf Baur's Kobold Quarterly is out, which means it is time for my printer to run out of ink (yes, I get it PDFed and then print it out, but he is offering print versions as well). The issues are getting thicker over time, and yes, it reminds me of the very early DRAGONs a great deal, both with its heady mixture of Big Names and Newcomers, its cheery level of unapologetic detail (a multi-page article on the math behind the Power Attack), and its increased advertising, most of it from small companies that I have not heard of before. It is an amazing return to the good old days, only better.

More later,
