Can Kobold Count?

It might seem that a quarterly would ship four issues a year, but no! Kobold Quarterly ships its first Annual with this issue, which includes:

  • The Truth about Tieflings by their creator, David "Zeb" Cook
  • New Blood Magic
  • Codes of Conduct for Paladins
  • Fortunetelling in Zobeck
  • ...and an interview with designer Monte Cook!

Yes, it’s another astonishing issue, and that’s not even mentioning the Ecology article—you’ll never believe this one—and the start of the new map feature, the Alchemist’s Lair.

The best (ok, only) magazine for the world's most popular roleplaying game keeps offering new surprises and continues to offer a great bargain for serious gamers.

Wolfgang, just so you know, I've been getting spammed w/ the email about this, including the links to pdf versions. You might want to look into that. I think I'm up to about 7 emails, w/ the last 6 completely identical.

Paizo Employee Developer , Dedicated Voter 2014, Star Voter 2015

They're not completely identical. Ya gotta look for the hidden messages.


ETA on this preorder?

Cool!
I have no private e-mail access in the office (yes, I am working hard at the moment!) but the tonight at home I will download the Issue and wait patiently for the hardcopy.

Dragons are ok but Kobolds rule!

Just occurred to me that I think I subscribed about a year ago... do you have "last issue" notices Wolfgang? :)


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Great issue, Wolfgang. I particularly enjoyed The Truth About Tieflings, the interview with Monte and the Ioun Stone article. Keep up the good work.

Why yes I do! However, some of those always bounce, so if you have a subscription but an old email address, I have no way of reaching you with the reminder.

So, please do renew!

Star Voter 2013, Star Voter 2014, Star Voter 2015

This is a great issue...and the ecology really is fantastic.
I've been reading it since the first, and they just get better and better.

if i decide to subscribe, will y'all keep the 4e module?

Yes, it's a PDF download, so if you don't want it, there's no reason to clutter your hard drive with it.

We offer the freebies from publishers to subscribers because folks seem to like free. But editorially, we support D&D in general, and mostly 3.5 and Pathfinder.

side note, i noticed that this site only offers pdfs of the first couple of back issues, are they completely sold out, or can i get them through your site?

Thank you! Somebody had to do SOMETHING with the phantom fungus. I mean, there they were sitting in the Monster Manual looking all forlorn saying, "why won't anyone play with me," right? Now, they're, like, "whatever, I'm just gonna eat you now." ;D

If you mean the hardcopy from Paizo, Wolfgang says he's expecting it to be delivered to him while everybody's at Gen Con... so hopefully we'll have it next week sometime.

Issue #1 has a couple copies available on the Official KQ Site, but several issues are totally sold out in print. You may be able to find them on ebay or elsewhere if you're lucky.

If you got the PDF download of #5, my kobold minions will send you the hardcopy of #5 as well. Well, assuming you got the print+PDF subscription. :)

The PDF of #6 went out to subscribers yesterday, and should be available for download now. Send me an email at "My First Name" at koboldquarterly.com, and maybe it'll happen before I get on the plane...

Liberty's Edge

ok, sent it! thanks :)

Amazing. I wont gush anymore, I just did in the review, but seriously ... amazing issue. :)

Awesome issue once again Wolfgang. Keep'em coming. :-)

The current GSL doesn't permit a 4e publication, and the revised GSL hasn't been released. From the letters and polls thus far, the majority of expressed opinion wants KQ to stick with 3.5/OGL.

That said, the current issue offers a free 4E adventure by Super Genius Games to subscribers, and the content includes 4E-friendly material like an article about Tieflings by their creator and a take on the Paladin's Code of Conduct based on real-world paladins.

So, it's meant to have something for fans of both editions.

Any idea when the print copy will be available? not in any hurry. just curious.

I dropped some off at the Paizo offices today, but honestly there's not enough to go around this issue. I blame the strong sales at GenCon.

well i'll just hope to be one of the lucky ones. incidently, if i had subscribed (which i would do, but i hate paypal. unless that's changed?) do they get theirs first, or would it still be the same issue?

You don't have to use PayPal; a credit card will also work. There's a part of the checkout process where you have the option to use a CC instead.

And yes, subscribers always get priority over newstand sales. It's only fair, because they paid in advance.

just out of curiosity, when are the print issues being mailed out for subscribers? or should i just get off my lazy butt and go check my mailbox if they've already been sent? :)

Why not give space to any of the other d20 games? Like Paranoia or Mutants & Masterminds. I mean, if your not going to focus on one why stop at two? Or, even the retro-games like OSRIC or Labyrith Lord.

Mr. Baur can only print what he gets.

i.e. if no one writes an article for these things, there are no such articles to print . . .

The Exchange Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Press; RPG Superstar Judge

Eyebite is exactly right. So far, I've gotten queries only for D&D in the OGL form. I'm certainly open to Pathfinder, True20, and other core fantasy and dark fantasy articles. This is the meat of every issue.

Which doesn't mean that I would never print an exception to spice things up. Heck, I'll go out on a limb and say that I'd consider Conan, Call of Cthulhu Dark Ages, Castlemourn, and other fantasy settings. Maybe even Changeling or Exalted, if there were some crossover interest. But I've never gotten a query for any of them.

M&M and SF are pretty far from the core fantasy mission of the magazine, but since I've never gotten a proposal for those, I don't have to make up my mind about them as a matter of editorial policy. Readers aren't exactly begging for superheroes or SF material, though, if the letters we get are any guide.

Liberty's Edge

Well, now I know! =D

And knowing is 1/2 the battle XP


Loving the blood-spattered cover, and the BRILLIANT TECHNICOLOR within.
I would applaud lustily if a bit of the budget each month were to go toward a couple of dedicated art pages, B&W or color. Another thing, I would love it if the advertising were grouped in one section at the front or back of the mag, so as not to fragment the presentation of the content. Of course, I know the rebuttal is that clumped ad placement wouldn't be effective because readers would just skip that section. But personally, I love reading the ads in KQ. I would sit and read that whole section through to check out all the cool products being advertised.

Has this sold out at Paizo? It currently says unavailable. Will you guys be getting any more in?

I have the same question !

Will KQ6 be available again ?

Wolfgang, please...

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 32, 2010 Top 8 , Star Voter 2013

Ladies, Gentlemen, Mutants,

All I can suggest is subscribe. It is taking bread from Paizo's mouth, to be sure, but it gives you reliable steady delivery of a great product.

Plus, you can subscribe and buy a subscription for a soldier at the KQ site, for just a bit more than cover price.

Right.

However, since I live in Europe, the shipping cost would be quite high.

When I buy KQ at Paizo, it's usually part of several items I buy to lower the shipping cost.
