Advanced Race Guide is Away!

Tuesday, March 13, 2012

Last week we sent the Advanced Race Guide to the printer. In the very near future we’ll be sharing some previews of this book, which is chock-full of new options for characters of all playable races. Until then, we thought we would whet your appetite by showing off this books amazing cover, painted by the lovely and talented Wayne Reynolds.

And now, just for fun, if you were writing a caption for this cover, what would it be? You get extra points for fun, creativity, and humor... as well as good taste.

"We're surrounded. That simplifies our problem of getting to these kobolds and killing them." (Harsk, in Chesty Puller style)

"OOH! A stab rich environment, fun!" Squealed Merisiel.
"There's no need for profanity," replied Harsk, lumbering his axe.

"I told you to give them a tip"

The kobolds decided to better word their next wish for 'more magic items'.

Tengu: "I warned you that chicks can be very, um, BOISTEROUS when mommy and daddy come back to the nest without food . . . "
(c'mon, all those gaping maws just BEG for a baby bird joke of SOME kind!)

Tengu: "Rrawk caw *tweet*"

Harsk: "You're right, they do sound like Seltiyel when he's waxing his chest."

Conflict could have been avoided easily, but sadly, the traffic rule "Drive on the right side" wouldn't be invented for centuries to come.

Here's a handful of semi-appropriate quotes:

It's clobberin' time!

Good? Bad? I'm the one with an axe!

Hell hath no fury like a kobold scorned...

Bad things come in twos and threes, worse things come in dozens.

Ten little kobolds felt mighty fine, One got an axe and then there were nine.

Best so far. But keep trying, those of us with no imagination are enjoying the effort.

The Tengu quit buying Kobold Quarterly Print+PDF at full price!

The Elf canceled her annual Kobold Quarterly Print+PDF subscription!

The Dwarf refused to buy any issues of Kobold Quarterly!

So start purchasing Kobold Quarterly now, if you want to live!

I'm not Wolfgang Baur, but he does approve of this message.

Payment Options: You can send platinum or gold to

Kobold Quarterly
PO Box 2811
Kirkland, WA 98083

You can also use a credit card (Tiamat Express or Bahamut Platinum cards only).

Ah, a heavily armed, multi-racial band of adventurers.

Tengu Dude: We're gonna need a bigger boat.

I told you they would be upset if we didn't put them in the book!

Tengu: "How can you kill kobolds?"

Harsk: "It's easy. You just don't lead them so much!"

"If only there were a racial substitution to make Defensive Training and Hatred work against reptiles and dragons..."

Shadow Lodge

"Squawk! ... I took an arrow in the knee, otherwise I'd be in there before you Harsk"

You go guys. I'll bring up the rear.

"Don't suppose any of you are named 'Tucker'?"

"Oh I thought you said Tucker's Kobolds..."

edit: curse you ross

How bout Tengu in real-estate agent voice:
Shines light inside
"And this lovely cave comes per-equipped for the modern day adventurer, check out these exciting kobold option packs!"

"Because iconics always steal the show"

"For when one player simply must play a Redwall animal"

"Single-race parties just became fun again! Kobold brethren: Slay the iconics!"

"You try painting a demon-forged half-celestial froghemoth-man cavalier-synthesist

"Huh. Maybe this isn't where I parked the apparatus..."

Elf Chick: "Hey.....chickenhead....
if I can hit.....that one over there with the buck teeth in the doodads with this knife, have to be my cabana boy for a week and fan me with your little glowing flag."

Tengu: "Gwack!!!"

"The Inverse Ninja Rule applies to kobolds too, right, Seoni? ...Seoni?"

Dark Archive

Merisiel to Tengu: Your opening move is a "Light spell"?!! Who's side are you on?!


Player 1 to other players: I thought the GM brought all those M&Ms to share, not for minis for a freakin' encounter!

Silver Crusade

Harsk: I'm the only thing on this cover that doesn't taste like chicken.

because dorfs taste like jerky

To koboldly go where only an elf, a dwarf, and a tengu have just gone before.

Merisiel: "Maybe we should have checked to see what the chief's Leadership score was before we refused his tryout..."

Tengu ~ "You know what, I don't think I need to be an Iconic THAT Bad"

"I told you: that only counts as one!"

"Mr Crow, this it the last time we play "find the shiny thing"".

Only those that watch Black Adder will get this one - Because Harsk is Brian Blessed.

The Exchange

Harsk: how much more experience til level up? I might be taking cleave...

the only thing more dangerous than a kobold trap is a trap full kobolds.

That's one small step for a dwarf, one giant leap attack from koboldkind.
