Spice Up Your Travel with Dragon #345

“Excursion: Four Ways to Travel the World” (in Dragon [1] #345) offers up four ready-to-use conveyances for fantasy campaigns: an oceangoing trader, a gnomish balloon, an overland caravan and a submarine, all illustrated by the fabulous Jeff Carlisle [2].

When I wrote this article, the idea was twofold: to give GMs the complete package for each vehicle, including a detailed description, background elements, NPC info and adventure hooks, and to present players with four potential “home bases” to pique their interest.

I’ve been reading Dragon since I was 12, and actually being in it is a pretty amazing feeling. More importantly, though, I think (I hope!) you’ll find this article useful.

Very cool. I’ll have to see if that’s the last issue we recieved, or if it’s the one to anticipate.

I’ve got some rejection slips from Dragon, back when it was owned by TSR, that are near and dear to my heart.

Scott: If you take a peek, you’ll have to let me know what you think. 🙂

Brian: Have you submitted anything more recently? Based on your blog, your writing is clear, uncluttered and friendly — you should definitely give Dragon another whirl.

Thanks! No, not recently. I fell off the D20 bandwagon about the time 3.5 came out and have only recently been getting back on. One of the articles got polished up and shopped around, and finally found a home on the pages of KoDT. I’m hoping some of my new projects will end up in a Dragon, but I have to finish them first.
