This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

(ZineQuest) Other Magic #3: The Ancient World
« on: February 09, 2021, 04:25:08 PM »
The third issue of my zine "Other Magic #3: The Ancient World" is now live on Kickstarter!

It runs from February 8 - 21 as part of the ZineQuest 3 event. 

The zine is a system neutral toolkit/supplement designed to help GMs incorporate real world ancient magic into their games.  It focuses on the magic of the ancient Near East, Middle East, Mediterranean, and surrounding areas.

In addition to providing the translated text of spells and rituals used in the ancient world, it includes tips for creating original ones with the same internal logic and style for use in your game.  It includes instructions for making historically accurate props for those who enjoy using physical items in their games.

Backers at all levels get free PDFs of the first two issues of the zine, as well.

I have a new blog at woodcutgames.com set up to pass along interesting tidbits that didn't make it into the zine, links to additional materials and resources, and other things related to the use of real world magic systems in rpgs.
