Kobold Quarterly #20 Now Available

Cover Art for KQ20Here in the Old Margreve, adorable woodland creatures are running hither and yon…FOR THEIR LIVES. That’s because Kobold Quarterly issue #20 is out today and this time the focus is on archers! With an all-new elven archer base class for Pathfinder RPG, a shadow fey hunting party on the prowl, and new arrows carrying acid, fog and razor filaments, the debate over whether it’s Wabbit Season or Duck Season just became much more energetic.

KQ #20 features Jeff Grubb on the lost elves of Midgard, a Q&A with Journeys to the West lead designer Christina Stiles and a new Zobeck adventure.

There’s also vile Derro ooze magic, new planar allies, AGE system specialties, 4e racial utility powers for gnomes, tieflings and minotaurs, and much more! Here’s the complete contents, after the jump:

• The Elven Archer Class
• Arrows of the Arbonesse
• Derro Ooze Magic
• Servants from Beyond
• Putting the Band Back Together: Veteran PCs
• AGE of Specialization
• The Bardic Arts
• Unearthed Ancestry
• Night Terrors by Jack Graham
• Captured in the Cartways
• Fey Hunters & Shadow Hounds
• Small Spirits
• Make Haste!

Plus our columnists and special guests:

LOVE this issue, but I’m somewhat biased. :)

I’m delighted with it as well, mostly because it’s the largest Winter issue KQ has done to date.

Also, magical fish. And Monte Cook outdid himself in the Game Theories column. And the Archer class is calling me as my next Pathfinder character.

The archer class will work well for Perunalia, as well.

Waiting . . . waiting . . . checking the mail box. . . waiting.

(Sure I have the PDF downloaded and in my KQ folder, but those are only to be read under the direst of emergencies. I must have my print mag. :) )

That archer class is rockin’! I bet the author is devilishly handsome!

I liked the Putting the band back together stuff as well as the Servants from beyond. Initially wasn’t that impressed with the Archer because of the elven link(I dislike racial restrictions) but it could easily be adapted, as the article points out, and is mechanically interesting and well designed. I may use it for an NPC I’ve been working on.

All in all a well written and presented mag.

Nice job on the archer, John!

Got my hard copy, always a happy day.

Liked the interview with Christina—I love to hear personal gaming histories, passions, and successes (and an adventure by said interviewee to boot.)
And as always, what I can see as a lot of useable content–though I’ve yet to dig into it in depth.

Two words: Magic Fish (my fave article by far).

It has been incredible to watch KQ grow into what it has become.

Purely based on layout and art this is the best issue yet. I also hope all the Kobolds know how much having a PRINT magazine in your hands matters. I own tons of pdfs and a Kindle…still love me some paper gaming mag! KQ rocks!

So excited to be a part of this issue, and hopefully more to come! Stellar composition and layout, and a wide range of useful stuff as always. Tomorrow is payday, and tomorrow I become a KQ subscriber! Woot!
