Jonny Nexus has posted the sixth chapter of his hilarious ENnie-nominated novel. At the end of last week's instalment, an encounter with the inhabitants with the Far Lands had - via an unfortunately misidentification of a temple as a tavern - resulted in an unfortunate incident in which a number of people ended up on fire and were, as a result, somewhat upset. Hill escaped. The fate of his companions is yet to be seen.

- METAMORPHOSIS Book II: The Tides of Chaos The second novel in the METAMORPHOSIS trilogy by Aeryn "Blackdirge" Rudel. Now a powerful demon in his own right, the former archmage Hazergal Redfist has become immersed in the brutal politics of the Abyss. With each fiendish transformation wrought upon his body, he gains more power, yet loses another vital piece of his humanity. Allied with the rogue devil Gemnez and an infamous abyssal ruler, Hazergal continues to unlock the mystery of his destiny and harness the awesome power slumbering within him. As the threat of a plane-spanning war looms, a specter from Hazergal’s past appears, and he must choose between his thirst for vengeance and the familiar trappings of the life he left behind.
- COMBAT ADVANTAGE #7: Sidekicks Sidekicks are a special role in that they are minions designed to aid the PCs.

This special edition of Combat Advantage provides complete rules for creating sidekicks in your campaign, along with three examples and rules for expanding sidekicks into class-based NPCs. COMBAT ADVANTAGE is a supplement for the 4E D&D kindly donated to EN World by Emerald Press.
