Kobolds Overrun RPG Countdown

RPG Countdown LogoWhen Ed Healy sent us a link to the latest episode of his RPG Countdown podcast with the cryptic note, “Thought you’d like to have a listen…” we were most intrigued. We soon discovered that Kobold Quarterly occupies two spots on the countdown of top-selling game products!

The Kobold Guide to Game Design comes in at #9, and on the show, contributor Ed Greenwood talks about his essay on how to create Dastardly Plots for your campaign. It’s a fascinating insight into how one of the great authors and designers in the game industry approaches storytelling.

Kobold Quarterly #16 takes the #2 spot in the countdown (maybe the mermaid on the cover helps sales?) and Robin D. Laws says some very nice things about our small-but-fierce magazine.

There are lots of great tidbits in the show, including a new book on fire magic from our friends at Super Genius Games, the Dying Earth RPG, and Kenneth Hite talking about his Bookhounds of London supplement for Trail of Cthulhu. Check it out!


  1. I’m reading through The Kobold Guide to Game Design now and have to agree it’s a wonderfully inspiring book. I learn a lot from each chapter and some of my best GM instincts are confirmed in it’s pages as well. The compliment on RPG Countdown is well deserved!

  2. Thanks!

    I think it made the Countdown because of the recent Anniversary Sale, where the Kobold Guide was a best seller.
