I hope everyone has been enjoying the liberal use of fireworks over the last few days. Now
please put them away and pick up your dice. It has been a busy couple of weeks, and it is only
going to get busier with Origins just wrapped up and Gen Con Indy rapidly approaching.
This week we have a review of Ptolus: Monte Cook's City by the Spire, Dark Champions:
The Animated Series and The Complete Guide to Liches. Also, P.J. Reed has contributed
a PDF file of 3"x5" Vestige Reference Cards for easily keeping track of the Vestiges used by
Tome of Magic's new base class, the binder.
The next month will also be a bitter sweet time for gamers every where as the last two issues

action, and color maps and handouts to enhance play.
Released monthly, GameMastery Modules kick-off at the end of June with

king and his minions. The prequel to Crown of the Kobold King, D0:
Hallow's Last Hope, was given away free at this year's Free RPG Day on
Look for a review of D1: Crown of the Kobold King in an upcoming Saving Throw column.
A little later than I wanted, but sometimes that happens. Not much going on, Origins just
finished, and I'm going to be going on vacation next week, so the next column might be delayed
as well. I want to also mention that if you submitted anything to Saving Throw between April and
June of this year to please resubmit it. Thanks.
