Even though I'm way behind in my reading, I had to give KQ a try, based on the reviews here. It didn't disappoint. Great look, lots of imagination and depth. Magnificent, magnificent pub.



This is wonderful! Titivillus, Scribe of Hell? That is a very good article! And the interview with Erik Mona is very fascinating. Buy this magazine, folks, and subscribe! you don't want to miss out on this, particularly as it's now doing print!

Return of the Dragon


Oh, hell yes. I absolutely LOVED kobold quarterly. It really remided me of the old (pre-Wizards) Dragon magazine, mostly because of the b&w artwork and text-heavy articles. Pictures aren't all that they're cracked up to be. I don't think I'm going to regret this one at all.
My only "complaint" is that there's no print version. Even so, it's still definitely worthy of the five stars I gave it.

Kobolds unite!


I really enjoyed this first PDF of KQ. So much so I had to subscribe to the print edition. My only regret is that I didn't subscribe in time to get this first issue in print. From the cover illustration to the Erik Mona interview to the Free City of Zobeck (can't wait to get more info on Zobeck), I'm reminded of early issues of Dragon. For everyone that misses Dragon you should pick this up!

A Fierce and Friendly Kobold


This magazine does exactly what it's set out to do: provide a magazine for gamers, by gamers, in a familiar, small-scale but high quality fashion.

The style of the magazine certainly will remind some of the first issues of Dragon. The feel is there, the good writing is present, there's nothing wrong that could be said about this issue, besides a few very minor things here and there (nothing out of the ordinary for a first issue, though).

If you want an alternative to the mammoth DI, something that's close to your interests as a DnD gamer, something that talks to you with a direct, friendly voice, this is what you are looking for right here.
