Got mine today! Black on black is cool. All the articles are well written, short and sweet. Just the way I like it. I will probably be using some of the ideas from the skill article, but all the articles are useful and may be used. I currently plan to use the rules for mortality from Adventurer, Conquer, King with DCC. If it is too much for the players then I might end up changing it to something like in the article.
I think this fanzine is a great idea and useful for additions and variants for a game like DCC. I may have to think about creating and submitting something.
Thanks! I'm really focused on keeping this zine as concise as possible. It's only the first issue, and things will likely get more refined and focused as we go. I plan to keep it mostly about rules & references that are usable at the table. I'll put some toilet reading material in there, for sure. I am considering a few reviews, character write ups & game play theory. But I'm not completely sure, and if I did, it'd be minimal. We'll see. This first issue is all crunch, and lots of stuff is intended to be cut and pasted into your regular game. Now. In fact I use 4 out of 5 of the articles in my current campaign. This format is perfect at the table. Issue #2 is going to be even more useful, especially for players.
I look forward to your submission.
