Summer has arrived with a vengenance, turning southern Indiana into a humid wasteland, like the Everglades, or perhaps like
the Trollhaunt. Speaking of the Trollhaunt, our reviews this week feature a dive into the warrens in the wasteland, where the
two greatest threats are the trolls and the environment. Our other review covers the Martial Power source book for
4th Edition Dungeons & Dragons rules.
There was not a winner in our Punish the Slacker Host contest. We are still going to give away the copy of Sceptre Tower
of Spellgard. In order to enter, simply send an email to your
host with an answer to the following question: Name one other product written by either of the authors of Sceptre Tower of
Spellgard, David Noonan and Greg A. Vaughn. It should not be too hard to get an answer to that question, so I expect some
entries this time, slackers! Entries are due by July 10th.
It is only seven weeks until the release of Paizo Publishing's Pathfinder RPG written by Jason Bulmahn. Last year we
interviewed Jason regarding the Alpha and Beta releases of the Pathfinder RPG. This summer you have a chance to ask
Jason questions about the final release version. Submit your questions to
Saving Throw Interviews by July 10th for the questions to be submitted to Mr. Bulmahn.
Staying on the interview trail, if you are interested in what Monte Cook is up to these days since his "retirement" send an
email to Saving Throw Interviews with your questions. Again, the
deadline for submissions is July 10th.
