Busy Month, Behind the Scenes...

It's been a busy October, even if I haven't had time to update the blog....

Launched at the end of September, the premier issue of Threshold: The Mystara Magazine is online at the Vaults of Pandius. I am happy to say that Thorn's Chronicle was selected to kick off the "My Mystara" column, where Threshold highlights the community's take on our beloved Known World. But there is so much more goodness packed into the 180+ pages!

From the back cover:

Back to the Borderlands of Karameikos
     And so, we are back where it all began: whether you came to Mystara through the Expert Set, the Gazetteers, or the AD&D 2e boxed sets, chances are the Grand Duchy of Karameikos was your gateway to the Known World and beyond.
     A land of adventure, with dangerous borderlands teeming with hostile goblinoids, giants, and dragons but also magical realms, treasures and relics of distant ages, as well as towns and cities posing their own challenges, the Grand Duchy of Karameikos is, after more than 30 years from its original appearance, still the starting point for many adventurers.
     As such, the first issue of Threshold, the Mystara Magazine, aims at spinning new tales from the Grand Duchy, as well as revisiting a few lost gems.

Compiled Chronicles: Arcs 1 and 2 in PDF
For those not wanting to slog through post after post on the Mystara board at The Piazza forums, you can now get your Chronicles super-sized. I've compiled the first two arcs into three PDFs for Shawn at the Vaults, warts and all. You can find them here.
