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.

Dunno whether anyone's seen this but there's a new FB group been set up for a new fanzine apparently due to be published early this year. Don't know much more and I've got a horrible feeling it will be full of crappy fanfic.

I plan to give them a chance for an issue or so, just to see what kinds of content gets produced. Of course, anyone worried about only getting low-quality articles might submit something high-quality. ;)

Well the issue is out. There is a preview up on the facebook page that shows the color pages. From what i can see its made in the style of Amberzines of the past. Looks nice and its an addition to the hobby. We really need those.

Is there a link by any chance? I don't have FB anymore.

In all fairness I was working on re-writing a lot of powers, and am now working on combining the Amber, Lords of Olympus and Gossamer.
