Demons & Devils Black As Your Soul

Kobold Quarterly's fall 2012 issue is not for the faint of heart! Starting with the fearsome art featuring the Master of Demon Mountain on the cover, you will enter an issue packed full of devils and demons to give PCs pause. With a new playable lamia race lurking within, even players might be tempted to join the dark side. (Also the dark side has chocolate, as we learn in the adventure “Devil’s Food.”)

  • Mechuiti, Midgard’s demon lord of apes and cannibals, with new spells, monsters and adventure hooks
  • “Devil’s Food”, an adventure among Midgard’s diabolical gnomes 
  • GM tips from Steve Winter on creating an atmosphere of horror at the table

KQ #23 also features inks and poisons from Midgard’s Seven Cities, worldbuilding with Monte Cook,  a lamia PC race, plus devil-smiting, soul-selling, and much more vileness as black as a derro's soul.

Soooo... any time table on this issue? :D I'm sure it's soon-ish.

Don't mind me. I'll just sit here quietly and wait for the release info. [/f5]

Contributor

Good question! I'll see if the Overlord knows.

Qadira Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Press; RPG Superstar Judge

It is very soon-ish. I'm guessing next week, though, this week there's still other things cooking.


Ooh! I wasn't expecting it to be that soon! The excitement!


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Nice! Can't wait.

If the lamia have anything to say about it, the issue will come out on the night of the next full moon ...


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I was going to ask about what work Marc or Ryan did on this issue, if any, but I guess half of that question is answered now. :)

Not necessarily ... I might just like lamia .... :)


So, October 29th? Is that the Kobolds' goal, or just the lamias' goal? ;)

Not this time (unless Wolfgang fast tracked the article I just submit), but you know I'll be buying a copy.

I have it on pretty good authority that you might even get some Lamia history, culture and religion as well ...

That's what I hear, anyway :)

Silver Crusade

Awesome. Is the PC race emulating "lion" lamias or "snake" lamias?

Either way will probably be presenting solutions to people trying to homebrew PC races of certain builds!

Andoran

Mikaze wrote:

Interesting question ...

We probably should not reveal specific details until the issue comes out. Let's just say that the lamia have a word for those bizarre half-lion creatures - gesh’ vek ( which means 'false lamia')

Silver Crusade

Cannibal Demon Apes? I am in! Also excited about the Gauntlet Witch.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting Subscriber

Mechuitl, Cannibal Demon Lord, and ecology of dragonkin. Are these articles still the magazine?


All these questions and more answered after this commercial break!

Qadira Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Press; RPG Superstar Judge

Dragonkin was actually issue 22. But yes, it's a great issue and some great articles.

Not to mention, the official Pathfinder Society adventure by Adam Daigle.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

please have flumphs, please have flumphs, please have flumphs...

Sorry, Cheapy. No flumphs in this one.

Oh well, should still be good!

I certainly want you to preorder the issue, so I'll spill some beans of the items listed on the Devil/Demon issue's cover).

Mechuiti (the Cannibal Demon) and his demon apes and the cannibal behtu are certainly in the issue--they are somewhat of a preview of Journeys to the West material, and Mechuiti's island is described in the [i[Pirates of the Western Ocean[/i] supplement for Journeys. Wes Schneider has a great devil article in this issue you won't want to miss (he had one in the previous issue, as well), and Adam Daigle has a wonderful Pathfinder piece in the issue. We've got Ed Greenwood with an article about a book of Asmodeus. I've added some poisons and magical inks to Midgard from Friula (one of my favorite areas of the setting). Marc Radle has an article on the lamia. Steve Winter talks about terrifying your players.

We've got first articles from Morgan Boehringer and Matt Blackie on new archetypes: the gauntlet witch and a weapon-specialist monk. And, there's a look at the new Earthdawn for Pathfinder. I'm forgetting some stuff for sure.

It's really a jam-packed issue of goodies, and I absolutely loved working on it. Preorder a good jolt of evil for your campaign today!

<Donkey>Are we there yet?</Donkey>

Sounds like an awesome installment of Kobold Quarterly.

Question: Is the Pages From Asmodeus feature specific to Golarion? Or is it a setting-neutral article?

Qadira Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Press; RPG Superstar Judge

Pages from Asmodeus is setting neutral and could be used in any campaign, including Golarion or Midgard.

Andoran

Can't wait for this bad boy to arrive in my mailbox!


WOOT!!!

Silverhair, I was curious about the Gauntlet Witch. Is is a witch archetype or a regular 20 level class? Could you let me know. Thanks.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

It's an archetype, I think.

Wow, the Simplified Sundering article for PFRPG is a great trick!
I’ve already printed that sucker out and put it in my DM notebook.

E D I T - That's REALLY embarrassing and strange - after I submitted that I went to the top of the page and noticed that I wrote the article. Which, I actually didn't. My name is attached to it but I actually didn't write it - someone named R.C. Higgins did. Might wanna correct that! :-)

Qadira Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Press; RPG Superstar Judge

Webstore gninja has already fixed it. So faaaasst.

Paizo Employee Webstore Gninja Minion

Like Ice Cream Gninja! *readies an action*


Hey hey where did the 4E content go???? My DM pal isnt going to be happy, first theres no new 4E books at all and now KQ doesn't even have one article on it - mind you I love the magazine cuz Im a Pathfinder person myself so keep up the good work but no 4E stuffs goona make some ppl sad pandas!


As Wolfgang has said before he cannot print what is not submitted. You want 4E articles, write one.


This website might explain the missing 4e content.

If your friend wants to see 4e material in KQ, he needs to either submit it or get others to submit it. If no one writes it, the Kobolds can't publish it, simple as that.

Qadira Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Press; RPG Superstar Judge

It's true, the D&D Next playtest has sucked a LOT of the life out of 4E submissions. However, tell your DM about this 4E release with intro by Rob Heinsoo and he might be happier.


Wow, lots of articles. How many pages does the typical KQ have on average? Lots ads in them?


I have issues that run from 60 to 90 pages. It mainly depends on the number and length of the articles that are submitted for publishing. If you want an average then I think in the 70-80 page range would fit.

Understand I am a subscriber not an employee nor am I affiliated with Kobold Press in any way.

Unless the publisher is independently wealthy you are going to find ads in any magazine. I don't sense that KQ has an unreasonable number of ads.

Wolfgang could answer your questions more accurately as he is the Kobold-in-Chief.

Qadira Contributor; Publisher, Kobold Press; RPG Superstar Judge

This issue has 88 pages, and is on the bigger side. Last issue had 80 pages.

It varies on ads, but usually at least 10 to 12 pages of ads. Keeps costs down, of course.


Yeah, I have no issue with ads. I was just wondering how many pages of content you had. I'm impressed by the number of articles. Seems like there are more articles than in the old printed Dragon mag.

Very tempting. Appropriate for an issue about demons and devils. :)


It's delicious. You should really give it a try.


Great issue!

I agree. Not only do I not mind the ads, I typically read them all.

It's been said before but back in the pre-internet days of Dragon and Dungeon that was a key way to learn about new products. They're not selling me toasters, they're typically advertising the very types of things I'd be interested in as a KQ reader.

Some of the ad art is really high quality - it's almost like bonus content. Well maybe that's pushing it, but I expect a healthy industry magazine to carry at least some ads for me to peruse.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Card Game, Modules Subscriber

I agree, I like the ads to. Liked them in the print D + D mags too. I guess, tho, that if the same ad is in there time after time they get a bit annoying. But if the advertisers keep updating their ads, I'll keep looking.
