I Hate Fiction! But I do have an idea...

***( )( )

If I wanted to read a story, I'd buy a novel or compilation (in fact, I have too many unread ones laying around already). As far as I'm concerned, the fiction section is a waste of space.
<P>
Unless, of course, it came with crunchy game statistics for the characters, creatures, items, etc. featured in the story. Sort of like the old "Mage Gathering" articles (Dalamar, Elminster, and some other wizard getting together to talk about spells).


I'd like to give it an extra star, but not this month

***( )( )

#336 is the October issue, and that means a horror theme. The magazine didn't disappoint, beginning with a well written article by James Jacobs on applying a haunted template to a location. The article includes a good mix of fluff and crunch, and is easily one of the best articles I've seen in a long time.

Birth of the Dead has some interesting ideas, but could have defined some mechanics relating to the spontaneous creation of undead. If not everyone can become a spectre, how do we know if this violent death should create one as opposed to that one? I would have preferred a mechanic beyond "DM discretion".

I didn't enjoy Bandits in the Path of Fame, fiction by James Lowder, but it is well written.

Class Acts was solid across the line, but the format has inherent limitations that left me disappointed.

All in all, it is a good issue, but it falls short of my high expectations and its own potential.
