And Straight On ’til Morning

A huge round of applause for Miranda! She’s done an amazing job of running the Kobold Blogmines for years. While I’m a wee bit sad to see her go, I’m greatly excited to see what great things she does next. When you slay some dragons, Miranda, come back and tell us all about them! It’s Deja Vu All Over Again As introduced, I’m Scott Gable, and I’ll be your new guide into all things Kobold. Those of you with...

All Mimsy Were the Borogoves

… and so I said, “No, you kiss the fish!” Thank you, thank you. For those just joining us, it’s time for a serious announcement. The kitchen is out of veal. Also, I’m stepping down as the web editor for Kobold Quarterly. I started at the magazine way back in 2008 with issue #3 when Wolfgang took a chance on a hungry editor. And for the last 2 years, I’ve also been keeping the blog going, wrangling the slush...

King of the Monsters 2, Winner Crowned!

First off, please excuse the eye patch. I don’t remember what happened last night, but I seem to have had a bit of an accident… and my head is absolutely throbbing. Too much partying I guess, am I right? (I always seem to have the worst luck at these events.) Anyway, I’m super excited to be the one presenting your new overlord! And without further ado, I give you the publicly chosen champion of King of the Monsters 2, the...

King of the Monsters 2, Fight!

The monster apocalypse has returned! In just a few short sentences, you’ll discover the identities of the 10 finalists of our King of the Monsters 2 Contest. But first… We would like to thank each and every one of you that sent an entry in. We couldn’t have done this without you. The judging was not easy.

A Gen Con Wrap-up, A New Reader Welcome

As we slowly return to normal after another wonderfully successful Gen Con, we would like to take this opportunity to say, “Welcome!” Meeting so many fans at several recent conventions, we realized that for all of you that have long been following us, many of you are just discovering KoboldQuarterly.com.

Support Monsters Everywhere

With Gen Con over, it’s time to turn our attention back to the cold, hard realities of everyday life. Monsters. Monsters don’t exist on their own. They need you. We here at KoboldQuarterly.com believe strongly in monsters, and we support them every chance we get. This is why we established the King of the Monsters contest. This wonderful cause has brought much needed attention to their plight, leading to countless breakthroughs in...

Gnome Stew, Critical Hits, NewbieDM.com, and One Geek to Another—these are all awesome blogs! Congratulations to Gnome Stew for taking the silver ENnie and the others for being...

Behind the Curtain: The Red Eye of Azathoth

What could be the harm? It’s only a book. If the Blind Idiot God has its way, you’ll be holding The Red Eye of Azathoth before you know it. This adventure anthology, guided by the superbly capable hands of Joshua Stevens, is Open Design’s very first Call of Cthulhu patron project, featuring a senses-shattering series of adventures cast throughout history. The five scenarios can be run independently or linked for one time-spanning mega-scenario....

Behind the Curtain: Progress in the Old Margreve

There’s something strange about those woods. Tales of the Old Margreve, one of the current patron projects, is progressing beautifully. This adventure anthology, guided by the capable hands of Tim Connors, features an eerie series of adventures set in a distinctly Old World, folklore-inspired package right in the city of Zobeck’s backyard. Tim recently sat down to chat with our friends at 3.5 Private Sanctuary to talk about it. If you’re...

Behind the Curtain: Sunken Empires Nears Release

Sunken Empires releases in mere days. I’m excited! Why, you ask? There have been other patron projects, you say? That’s true, but they keep getting better. Each new patron project ups the ante. The patrons come back again and again, increasing in both number and talent. The sheer volume of ideas generated this time around could have powered a small moon. Let’s bask now in the salty waves. In a moment, you’ll hear what three instrumental talents...

Behind the Curtain: Tales of the Old Margreve

Over the river and through the Margreve… Another patron project very recently got the green light: Tales of the Old Margreve. This anthology-to-be, guided by the capable hands of Tim Connors, features an eerie series of adventures set in a distinctly Old World, fairy tale inspired package right in the city of Zobeck’s backyard. So how does this kind of collaborative project really work? Right after it got the green light for commission—even...

Behind the Curtain: Sunken Empires

Very soon, I sense there will be some very wet PCs! Why? Because hot on the heels of the Open Design/Paizo joint project From Shore to Sea is the sourcebook Sunken Empires. Uncover the secrets of Lost Azlant with the first and tailor your own underwater world and characters with the second. Well, we want to give you an idea of what’s going on behind the scenes at Open Design, so every week, you’ll hear from one of the Kobolds on the...
