Claw/Claw/Bite Issue 18 New School drawing upon the Old

Before you attack the skeleton quickly check you're using the
same edition of the rules.  I mean, you don't want to end up
"Bloodied" when you're not sure what that is.
Claw/Claw/Bite Issue18 on DriveThru
Totally random set of comments regarding a random-ish product coming up ... I was lucky enough to receive a free copy of this gem ... Issue 18 of Claw/Claw/Bite from Unicorn Rampant Publishing ($3 on DriveThru)

A really nice mix of the old and new!
I especially enjoyed the article on the very practical DIY Dungeons: Terrain Tiles on the Cheap which included photographs to illustrate.

As a bit of an old-schooler and nostalgia reader it was really nice to see classic AD&D module Lost Caverns of Tsojcanth getting a mention with regard to adapting old modules for 3-4th editions (including some stats).

The layout is very easy on the eye and designed to be read on the monitor (portrait), the text being a large enough size to read without zooming - well thought out. I'm guessing it also looks good on a tablet computer - relatively high contrast might mean it'd look just as good on a b/w e-reader. The articles are short enough for to dip in and out at leisure.

If you've been following the D&D side of the hobby for quite few years but like to play newer systems as well, Claw / Claw / Bite is definitely worth that spare $3.
