This one is the cover to the forthcoming "Friends of Foes". A brand new supplement for Dragon Warriors published by Magnum Opus Press.
I pretty much see this installment of our heroes' story as coming after the Bestiary cover. Our knightly friend in particular didn't fare well against the dragon, and the female knight shown here in some way intervened. Perhaps she was after the reward placed on the heads of our conspicuously-outside-the-bounds-of-the-feudal-system adventurers. Our barbarian chum is now trying to negotiate his release whilst the mystic and sorcery are resting up in the spital house trying got get over their meeting with the dragon! Perhaps our party and this new knight have more in common than she currently realises? Is our barbarian the best person to be trying to convince her of that? I think probably not!
Meanwhile the locals earn their living as best they can from these passing upwardly mobile heroes. Or perhaps our urchin friend is the lady knight's side kick?
