Rogue Mage is a single-player role-playing mini adventure written by Graeme Davis and illustrated by Tony Ackland and Pete Martin. It was published in 1986 in issue 10 of Warlock by Games Workshop.

“ Rescued from certain death... for a fate worse than death! ”
After losing all your money living the high life after a successful adventure, you are arrested after attempting to steal from a merchant. A wizard from the Guild of Magicians steps into the debate over you future and offers a way out. If you can successfully defeat the rogue mage Galthazzeth you can earn your freedom.
Players can only eat Provisions when allowed by the instructions on a page, and only one meal can be eaten at a time. In later books players can eat at any time outside of battle. Also, while a player has only one Potion, it contains two doses.
The illustrations were by Tony Ackland and Pete Martin. There were 3 full page (or equivalent) illustrations and 6 minor repeated illustrations scattered throughout the text. The paragraphs with a full page illustration were: 11, 171 and 1471.
