Howard Lyon

From the first roll of the die around a paper dungeon, fantasy roleplaying has transported participants to far away lands to pursue magic and adventure. In keeping with this fine tradition, Howard Lyon adeptly illustrates these fantastic feats of noble heroes and mighty foes.

With the fierce gazes of valiant warriors and the introspective faces of disciplined sorcerers, Mr. Lyon deftly captures the elusive spirit of high fantasy combat. A myriad of races and classes can be found in his portfolio, but they all share the determination and skill to complete their quests.

That a few of Howard’s most stalwart combatants stand no more than a few inches high should be no cause for concern, for even these adventuresome rodents clearly have the blood of heroes coursing through their tiny hearts.
