fanzine contents - feedback requested
« on: December 23, 2015, 01:31:35 PM »
There are some ideas that are obvious for use in a fanzine.  Character options - race, order, flaws, edges, equipment, magic, etc. - in addition to the ones included in the core rules are pretty much in any gaming fanzine.  Other ideas include:

* adventure seeds

* NPCs, monsters, etc.

* ideas on using rules in a new genre (ghost-busting, sci-fi, etc)

So, what else would you like to see in a fanzine devoted to PJ Fantasy and SteamCraft?  Have I overlooked anything?

There are contacts, but that might be NPCs.  There could be new specializations.  Advice on new ways to use skills.  Equipment builds where you can just pick a package and go.  More information about the races.  Advice on when yo use an attribute instead of a skill.  How to handle contested actions.

Are you still around, Semi-Retired? Did you develop your fanzine project at all since back then? I'd love to see it if you did.

I'm still around.  I got pretty far but suffered a computer crash.  I have notes and early drafts that I can dig out and expand.  I will do so at some point in the near future.  Instead of a zine I'll probably just go with individual articles/posts.
