Issue 15 has left the laboratory with a leap and a roar!
Sometimes it takes a little longer for a breakthrough than you wanted, but the results are just more rewarding. This time around we've got an 80-page issue, jam-packed with scenario ideas, adventure, bloodlines, mechanics, and more. It's full of our artistic regulars like Angela Taylor, Barrie James, and Patrick Demo, as well as a healthy contribution from Elizabeth Porter.
We get you ready for issue 16's alternative settings with Jason Tondro's Rats Magica. Gerald Wylie returns to look at the ubiquitous cattle raid as a story event and we see some alternative covenant finance rules from Mark Shirley. There's a body in the bog for your dose of adventure, a second series of Bonisagus lineages by Mark Baker, and more mythic bloodlines-- this time based out of Stonehenge. Regular favorite, Vulcanis Argens provides a new installment, and new to this issue but a blast from the past for readers of Hermes Portal, we have a Heretic's Corner, where Xavier Requejo examines the idea of fixed art scores. Finally, there's a great piece looking at character design focusing on the Intangible Tunnel by Pelle Kofod and Christian Rosenkjaer Andersen.
We're hoping you'll pick up this issue and take a look. For those keeping track, issue 16 should be relatively close on its heels and issue 17 not far behind that!
As always, if you'd like to purchase an issue of Sub Rosa, send $4.50(US) for single issues, $13(US) for a troupe issue via paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org once you've completed your order (so we can both see you've made your order). We're working to change this arrangement, and we'll post as soon as we have a better option. We've been somewhat preoccupied with things we cannot talk about, but you're going to love. At this point, you really have no choice but to believe me.
Five years into this, and you still need convincing? We've put together a short preview here!
