Hey danaxbraga, welcome!

Thanks so much for the offer to contribute. Bifford has final say as he's the editor, but would you mind sharing some examples of your work?

Joint effort! Not going to turn anyone away at this moment. But greetings Danaxbraga! Let's start a separate art thread for this stuff.

Did anyone want to chime in about my idea of themed issues and the first edition?

I think themes could work. As long as we don't make them too restrictive or narrow, it could help with generating article ideas, or guiding what articles we group together.

The proposed theme for the first issue is good - trying to make the game as accessible as possible for everyone. The only thing I would say is that we shouldn't duplicate what's already in the rulebooks themselves, but rather build on it. So for example, how to read monster stats is already explained in the Pit books; but what we could do is to explain for new Directors how to gauge the toughness of monsters in the bestiaries and adventures, so they'll have an idea of what is suitable for their players' Heroes.

I've been looking into making accessible pdfs and "Tagged PDFs" are a big thing.

https://taggedpdf.com

Which then also points to this little gem:
https://www.access-for-all.ch/en/pdf-la ... r-pac.html
Which will check your pdfs for a number of things, including tags, and also show you what your pdf will look like using a screen reader (havn't gotten this bit to work yet)

As yet, not a single large company for RPGs that I have checked it with has come even close to passing its test!

Wow the fanzine is coming along great. Nice to see the first page of the comic in the mockup too, at last yes!!!!
Happy to offer to do a 'Gareus' agony aunt section where Gareus can answer letters from around Titan and offer bad advice, poor history, and incorrect recipes from Titan Herbal ;-)

I love the sound of that! These could be great plot hooks for people to use too!

That's a great point! OK, excited about writing some of these up now. Will dive into my AFF books for obscure references that Gareus can get wrong!

Here is a little mock up. Would something like this work? Could easily just take a half or quarter page instead though, no worries.
