A Word from the Editor
Three Times the Fun ! 
Greetings, fellow Minotaurians… and welcome tothe third issue of the
Minotaur,
the one-and-onlyofficial webzine of the
Mazes & Minotaurs
roleplaying
 
revival !
 
To celebrate our first anniversary (yup, the firstissue of
Minotaur Quarterly 
was released roughlyone year ago – which, incidentally, explains why it isno longer Quarterly) and since we couldn’t agree ona single theme for this third installment, we decidedto offer you a 48 page
triple-themed 
issue.The first of these three themes is
Amazons
. Thisissue’s
Mythika Gazetteer 
tells you everything youever wanted to know (and possibly a little bit more)about the warrior-women of M&M, while
The Alternate Amazon 
presents a variant, liberatedversion of the character class. Lastly, this issue’s
Maze Master’s Lore 
includes the description andstats of Mythika’s mightiest living Amazon heroine,Princess Titania.The second theme is (wait for it)…
Magic
! Thisissue’s
Pandora’s Box 
offers you various arcaneaccessories, the impenitent Luke G. Reynard tellsus what he thinks about Mystic Fortitude in his ever-popular
Twist in the Maze 
column and this issue’s
Griffin Archives 
resurrect a long-lost M&M classfrom the glorious 80s : Erik Sieurin’s Beastmaster -presented for the Original
and 
Revised rules… allthis, plus the detailed description of Pellias ofSeriphos, Mythika’s greatest Sorcerer hero, in
Maze Master’s Lore 
.Last but not least, our third theme,
Myth
, isgenerously represented by two adventures – Andrew Trent’s
Black Chains of the Earth 
(part 2 ofour Against Atlantis! series) and Kevin Scrivner’s
The Trident of Rhana,
as well as by this issue’s
Mythic Bestiary 
, which offers us a Monstrous Mixfrom various legendary and literary sources. Not tobe outdone,
Muse’s Corner 
tells us all about threeTV movies inspired by the classic mythic tales ofJason & his Argonauts, the Trojan War and, ofcourse, the Odyssey.Oh, and did I mention the
Play Nymph
