If you missed older issues of the small-but-fierce Kobold Quarterly, don't despair! Open Design has dug these treasures out of their mines for you to add to your own treasure hoard!
Before it even left the dealer hall at GenCon 2007, Kobold Quarterly #1 was hard to find (no doubt due to the Stealth bonus granted by its svelte size). With an article on Titivillus, the Scribe of Hell, an interview with our own publisher, Erik Mona, new treasures, and an ecology of the Derro, this magazine still holds up as an excellent resource five years later, and you'll be able to add it to your collection!
Along with the premiere issue, you'll be able to grab a copy of Issue #2 gives you alternate class abilities for paladins, a sit-down chat with artist Wayne Reynolds, assassins, while Issue #4 spins the tale of an angel that has gone through Hell and back and gives you the gory details on some of the gangs of Zobeck. For a touch of nostalgia, read the last interview with legendary game creator Dave Arneson in Issue #9, or get a taste of Midgard's gearforged in Issue #16.
In just five years, Kobold Quarterly has become the go-to place to get a mix of Pathfinder, OGL, 4th Edition, AGE, and Call of Cthulhu articles for the style of gaming you like, in either print or PDF versions, right here at Paizo.com!
Yep, 20 issues of a quarterly means 5 years. I can't believe it either.
And issue #1 looks scrappy indeed. I am happy to see how much of it has turned into the Midgard campaign setting, Zobeck city books, and other pieces.
And that interview with Mr. Mona still makes me happy. Might be time to interview him again, since so much has changed.
Indeed! Kobold Quarterly has, in my opinion anyway, truly grown into a fantastic magazine! I get the same charge when a new issue arrives in the mail that I used to when I received a new issue of Dragon.
Oh, and I would snag a copy of issue #1. It's pretty collectable now (I am proud to say I have an original copy :)
Congratulations! Five years already... I've been onboard since not long after, but only for the pdf's. Kobold Quarterly is actually one of the reasons I bought an iPad (which I'm usling to type this). It's a hell of a magazine! All the best for the future! :D
