Kobold Quarterly Magazine #9


Kobold Quarterly #9 features an interview that unfortunately is sad and all-too-timely: the last interview with Dave Arneson.
Also of interest:

  • Monte Cook launches a new column, Game Theories
  • We take a look at the classic bat-demon, Camazotz
  • Our first dual-stat 3E/4E article offers up the Maedar as a PC race
  • A reader request for a Kitsune race for 4E is fulfilled
  • The Map of Fantasy series offers an isometric Bandit Lair for any edition
  • Plus dinosaurs, bard magic, magical oaths, ritual drugs, and warlocks!

It's a full heaping helping of great game material to inspire any 3E/OGL or 4E fan to play a better game and enjoy both the history and the future of the hobby.

I have never before read Kobold Quarterly. I’m just going to put that out there to start out with, so you know where I’m coming from. I had heard of it, certainly. I had listened to the Atomic Array talk about KQ 8, where they interviewed Wo [...]

This issue has the historic, final interview with Dave Arneson. For that alone it should not be missed. His contribution to the hobby can’t be overstated. It provides insights towards his feelings about the very nature of roleplaying games and antecd [...]

If you are buying this edition of KQ specially because of the Dave Arneson interview, you will be disappointed, as it is more of a Q&A than (really) an interview - altough it bring some interesting facts about Mr.Arneson later works and glimpses of [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
