Antherwyck on Itch

April 5, 2022

We’ve started an account on itch.io along with the other points of presence online for Antherwyck. It’s not a full catalog of the things on DriveThru; and some things will probably never get copied to itch because I don’t think the audience for those things is on itch (but if I’m wrong, please do let me know).

We may start making some of the more experimental things available there, for instance. Itch is better set up for developmental and iterative things, so early drafts of AntherZine – either the whole zine, or perhaps just certain articles – may show up there. Itch seems like a better place to have some half-formed ideas to kick around, and have updated versions.

For now, the two items that are there are the first issues of AntherZine. And, one way or another, I expect that we will keep posting AntherZine to both locations.

There was an inadvertent early release of Scream! Into the Void Remix on DriveThru. So, a few people picked it up while it was there (and someone from those folks even gave it a 4-star review). If you are an AntherZine subscriber, you’ve already gotten a copy of it included with AntherZine n1v2. Otherwise, we will be putting it out on itch a couple weeks before it is available at DriveThru.

AntherZine Anniversary Discount

March 13, 2022

The first issue of AntherZine was published a year ago today (March 13). In recognition of that, we are offering a special discount for the second issue, which was published a few weeks ago. Use this link for AntherZine v1n2 at DriveThruRPG to get it in PDF for only $2. But this offer is only good for one week.

Don’t forget, you can also get the first issue of AntherZine PDF at a pay-what-you-want price, also at DriveThru.

Update for Scream! Into the Void! Remix

February 27, 2022

In the original version, the rules for the Scream! Into the Void! Remix are a little difficult to read because they are printed on top of some of the control panel graphics (see above, left). So an added page – with the graphics removed from behind the text blocks – has now been made part of the game, so the rules may be easier to read.

Scream! Into the Void! Remix is included with AntherZine v1n2, so if you have purchased a copy of that, this update is now available for you to download.

We’ve also made an initial donation to TrickleUp.org (which is the charitable organization HodagRPG suggested contributing to in the original Scream! Into the Void! – it’s a group that is supported by Sigourney Weaver. We plan to continue making contributions as there are further sales of the ‘zine

AntherZine v1n2

AntherZine v1n2 cover

The latest issue of AntherZine is now available!

The contents of this issue include DQ articles discussing Poor Brendan’s Almanac, notes about a podcast interview with Chris Klug, and a new creature for DQ. There are also articles about managing an inn, which uses some DQ references, but is highly adaptable to any FRPG, and a table of interesting water crossing encounters. And, on the SF side of things, we have a remix of the game Scream! Into the Void! that was originally released last year by HodagRPG.

Right now, you can get it at DriveThruRPG .

If you just want the free stuff, it will be set to a PWYW price after the initial release period, so you’ll have to wait for a while, but keep on the lookout for it later this year.

The previous issue of AntherZine is also available as a Pay What You Want at DriveThru RPG.

AntherZine – Available Now

March 13, 2021

The AntherZine is now available as a pay-what-you-want PDF at the Antherwyck DriveThruRPG site.

AntherZine v1n1 coverThis initial issue of AntherZine was largely written earlier in 2020, but languished for much of last year while everything was blowing up. We’re starting to regain our bearings, and while this didn’t make it as part of Kickstarter’s ZineQuest, that did help provide some impetus to get it going.

The plan is for this to be a quarterly publication, and using last year’s issue as a demonstration shows how it will look and some kinds of content that may be featured. This includes a couple of random descriptive tables, as well as an initial working draft of “Invasion of the Moonmen,” a small, standalone game by Thor Hansen.

Work is underway of volume 2, number 1 of the zine, and it is aiming for an early spring release date, so stay tuned.
