|The mini 'zines that are all part of the Dungeons & Designs Kickstarter|
With Zine Quest 2 officially wrapping up at the end of the month, there's just time to tell you about three more 'zines - all from my motherland - that caught my eye.
Not only are these British 'zines all wildly different in their approaches to our hobby, but all three Kickstarters have also each met their funding goals already... so the 'zines will be happening. Which is great news!
First up, we have the Dungeons & Designs Kickstarter, which is actually funding the production of 20 mini A5 'zines (pictured at the top of this article): one-page, system-agnostic, dungeons complete with full-coloured postcard maps.
The bulk of the dungeons are already available as free PDFs, but the Kickstarter will allow for them to be rewritten, expanded, and printed up.
Ten pounds gets you 20 dungeons! That's 50p a dungeon!
Read more about this great value for money campaign, which runs until March 9, here.
Next up is Face Folio, a zine of 100 fantasy portraits from artist MARCINs for use in your RPGs, representing either PCs or NPCs.
The pictures, displayed with 10 faces across each two-page spread, are organised into the following categories: human; dragon-blood; dwarf; elf; gnome; halfling; orc-blood; demon-blood; human nobles; and human peasants and towns folk.
Face Folio co-ordinator M Blake explains: "Each set will contain ten portraits, half male and half female. With the exception of the human nobles and peasants, the portraits will be a spread of adventuring classes."
You can see examples of artwork and read more about the project, which runs until next Wednesday (March 4) here.
Last, but by no means least, we have our final British 'zines - a twofer from Newt Newport of D101 Games (publisher of the peerless Crypts & Things RPG): Grogzilla #1 and Skyraiders Of The Floating Realms.
Grogzilla is a grab bag of RPG articles for a variety of old school systems, while Skyraiders is a:
"...concise D100 based Fantasy Adventure Role-Playing Game of flying adventurers seeking loot and exploring floating sky islands."The fundraiser only continues until Saturday, so you'll probably want to nip over there, read all about it, and make your pledge as soon as possible.
