Dragon Index - Issue 364

First in a series of posts showing the contents of each digital Dragon magazine as it's released on the Wizards of the Coast web-site. This is more to help me than anything else, but will probably be useful to anyone who visits the blog. Should Wizards do a decent job of an on-line index which includes article summaries, I'll retire this series in favour of just using that. Obviously.

Long ago, the legendary Maldeen stood up to champion those who could not fight for themselves. Now his order continues this noble cause.
Creature Incarnations: Kobolds - By Mike Mearls
Sure, the Monster Manual is full of the little buggers, but who couldn’t use some more kobolds? Introducing the wild mage, vermin handler, and many more varieties.
Roll vs. Role: Goblins - By Bruce Cordell and Chris Sims
Meet the Bile Spider tribe, an alchemically inclined group of goblins willing to do anything for a necessary reagent.

RPGA Report - By Chris Tulach

Ampersand - By Bill Slavicsek
Bill talks about D&D Game Day and the launch..

Edit: I've decided against doing this because there isn't much utility above and beyond what you can already get from the Dragon Archive anyway. Certainly not as useful as the Dungeon index will turn out to be.
