In addition to Beamdog exclusives and amazing developer and writer access that can’t be found anywhere else, you’ll find a discussion of everything that’s new (and great!) about the CRPG and MMORPG industry.

Welcome to issue #2 of The Familiar Magazine: Inside this special issue you'll find a raft of features on the making of Siege of Dragonspear to tide you over until the game releases on the 31st!
Beamdog reveals just what goes on behind the scenes in a special in-depth Making Of Dragonspear feature, how to build a great Collector's Edition (answer: a lot of hard work), the Art of Dragonspear with Jonathan Hill, tips and downloads for the new Shaman class, and expert strategic guidance from Alex Tomovic.
You can also relive the birth of a Baldur's Gate legend with a character spotlight on Minsc and Boo. The issue has exclusive new Forgotten Realms fiction from Andrew Foley, an interview with cover artist Tom Rhodes, plus readers' Fan Fare selections as they reveal their favorite non-companion characters.
There's even a chance to win yourself some fine loot with a Digital Deluxe version of Siege of Dragonspear up for grabs!
It's everything the dedicated Infinity Engine and CRPG fan could ever desire. We'll see you inside.
