Dragon 406 and Dungeon 197 ToC is Up!

You can read them here and here, though it looks like the "Eye on..." articles are under the wrong ToC. It looks like evil and fey are the order of the day; unexpectedly, my article bringing back the classic hordelings is getting published this month. I hope everyone enjoys the random tables.

Man . . . I'm waiting for the backlash from Dragon content being mostly what we'd find in DUNGEON. "Eyes on . . ." articles, which I don't usually care for even in Dungeon are now in Dragon? Also, themes separated into single articles? I hope this is just because it is December.

Dungeon on the other hand is looking promising. There's a paragon adventure, which is very nice and with promises of more.

Kudos! I love hordelings!

And look! Three paragon paths I originally wrote for Heroes of the Feywild that didn't make it into the book are being published this month!

Two Paragon adventures, one based on Steading of the Hill Giant Chief, the other involving Baneites, and then a high Heroic haunted mansion trek, yes, yes, yes. Very excited to see the Against the Giant series moving into higher Paragon in the next four months. Also really looking forward to the Glasya article, but I'm a sucker for archdevils.

Dragon does look a little bare this month. My hope is that, if Eye on the Realm is in Dragon, it's going to focus on the player-side of these locations via options and items. Then again, I have a feeling they won't. Stoked for the Unseelie stuff for the feylocks, though.

And yes, that really does look like Dexter holding that baby.

Just out of curiosity, does the author have any say in the art order for the article, or is that solely in the hands of the art director?

The author usually turns in two or three art suggestions with the manuscript. Obviously, those suggestions are then filtered through an art director; however, in my experience, at least one of the author's ideas makes it into the final article. For example, the cover for this month's Dungeon is an art suggestions I turned in for Heart of the Scar.

Usually, the writer is given the image size (say, "1/3rd vertical") and writes a brief art order. That goes to the producers, who work in tandem with the art director in putting together the final order (which may or may not match the one written by the author). And even then, the art director and the artist might come up with another idea that works better.

For instance, I wrote the art order for the Kara-Tur Runepriest. When I was chosen to be the artist as well, the art order was slightly different. As I did the sketches matching the art order given, I also had a different idea that might work. Indeed, that new idea ended up being the final image.

Are the articles still not being compiled? As in is it still just one article at a time no compiled issue PDF (the reason why I cancelled)

Unfortunately, yes. This also has the added disadvantage that you have no way of telling if and when a single article has been updated.

The ridiculous 20 characters limit in the CB is also still in place... :mad:
