This series was concieved and started a year ago to add challenges that were not combat related to the referee's toolbox. Combat is invariably one of the primary challenges in most rpgs and this is not likely to change. However, throwing a non combat challenge at the PCs can spice up an adventure and add some variety. Each article is focused on a particular theme: water, heat, lunar dust and more to come. Some hazards are environmental factors and others weather effects. Issue 2's article is written and this Fall the new challenges will involve the toxicity of lunar dust.
