Hex 004, powered by Moldvay-era D&D, will be featured in Loviatar no. 8. This hex continues many of the themes and elements of the previous hexes. There will be a slightly larger underground area of PCs to explore, which is something a few readers have requested. The hex also includes larcenous gnomes, a murderous constable, an otyugh auction, an owlery in a dead treant and a giant, talking snake. As usual, the hex is jammed.
The issue will also include an article that presents a variety of linkboys, porters, wagoneers and fighting men. Every sandbox explorer could use a few hirelings and Loviatar no. 7 will help fill that need.
Looking ahead, Loviatar no. 12 will most likely be a 48 page, "double issue" that presents the Freecity of Haldane. The city has been mentioned in the hex crawl, so perhaps it might be nice to have the city in print. After roaming the sandbox, intrepid explorers can repair to the city for healing, drinking and wenching.
