End-of-Spring 2021 Update

by

It’s almost summer, and well past due for some updates. The next issue of AntherZine was supposed to be a Spring issue; it’s going to be late, but it is well underway, and should be out soon. We’d also like to find more writers to include in future issues. We’re also working on getting print copies of the Wilderness of Ordurak map. And there is a new product at DriveThruRPG: the Dungeon Encounters cards.

AntherZine – Two articles and a remix of a game from HodagRPG are done; another article is underway. It shouldn’t be too much longer before this is out. It would be good to get to the point where it is cost effective to be able to make a hardcopy print version.

Dungeon Encounters cards – A deck of 26 poker-size cards with sections of dungeons. On one side, the map is plain; the other side has the same map with an overlaid hex grid. We’ve already had inquiries about a PDF and/or a book version of this, so look for those to be available soon, as well.

AntherZine Contributions – At this time, 73 people have downloaded a copy of the first AntherZine. That’s not bad for a zine coming from nowhere. Most people took it for free, but a few paid something for it, and the income from sales for that are a bit under $40. That means there is not much budget to pay contributing writers. But the intent is absolutely to pay writers, so if you have something to pitch, get in touch!

Wilderness Map – We made a few updates and corrections to the print map of the Wilderness of Ordurak, and the PDF versions of those are available. This now also includes a Player’s map, which has the unknown areas empty, so it can be given to the players to fill in as they explore and learn about the region. But the complete region map came back with some strange, blocky pixelization in the mountain areas. It’s not clear what caused the problem, but we need to take care of that before it’s ready for sale.
