That shorturl to the shared drive doesnt seem to be working on my end Bifford. If you need new copies of my comic and agony aunt section let me know. Cheers

It would appear it won't work if you click it as a link. If you copy and paste it into your browser it will.

Currently I am working on the hardest part - setting up the magazine in the first instance. I havn't got to throwing in content yet because I need the nuts and bolts of the frame set out right. Which is really tricky when I've never done anything like it before.

My recommendation to everyone is keep throwing stuff at me (preferably into that shared drive). The more I have to work with the more I can play around and the more issues we have potentially got items for off the bat.

Thanks!

I have more rumours and books, all Arion-themed, done. I don't know whether you want to have more than 10 rumours and 20 books in the edition. If you do, I have 60 of each.

Yep, that was just me being dense. I've added my pieces in now.
Let us never talk again of the 'link clicking incident'.
Nothing to see here.

I am writing an adventure (Welcome to Arion!) where the characters come from Allansia and/or the Old World and disembark on Arion, that on that same night the city is hit by a curse that turns everybody into Blackhearts, so the characters will enjoy a mostly sandbox investigation in the city. The adventure will require the use of Travels in Arion for reference and maps.
I think I'm about three quarters of the work.
Can this be interesting as a submission?

I've done two Arion-themed articles and I'm working on a third. So, I think an Arion adventure would tie in nicely.

Jungle stuff. Is it possible to upload this to the shared folder?

https://drive.google.com/folderview?id= ... TJweDAzbGc

Hey Stuart. Is there any particular way you want these put in the mag? Just throwing them up as is; With an introduction to what they are; A short Jungle adventure text? I'm not too sure what to do with these as they stand.

I have rules for: Travelling and hazards, shaman spells, poisons and diseases, equipment, jungle ruins dungeon generator, adventure sheets for jungle based PCs and stats for jungle themed NPCs.
I could write a short "Editor's explanation" saying as such. That would work. I think, as there are eight items I might make it a two or four parter depending on circumstances.

Thanks.

How about digging up an AFF forum post and giving it an updated audience?

Or a forum post that reminisces of AFF of the past? Here is what people thought of AFF2 in the past!

How about my blog posts on why AFF1 was broken and needed an update - that seems appropriate for issue 1.

Anyone got any play reports? I could see if any bloggers want to publish them?
We have a lot of "Director Advice" articles, short and long, as well as an adventure and some fun bits.

What we don't have is anything harkening back to the past and absolutely no Stellar Adventures items. So are you able to pull something up worthwhile based on one of those first few items? (and SA if possible)

I actually wrote a short speculation on what Notura would be like here:

viewtopic.php?f=13&t=349&p=9174&hilit=Notura#p9174

I could expand on it.

I would definitely be keen to see material on Notura and/or Marrangha if anyone's up for producing it.
I've started on creating creatures Frankenstein style which fits both Notura and Marrangha.
viewtopic.php?f=13&t=2579
I can see Notura & Marrangha being a staple section of the mag. Short and sweet articles of a page, maybe a page and a half? What title could it have?

Do you think you could whip up a one pager as the start of a series? Each article a stand-alone, but builds to a bigger whole. With artwork if possible.

That's great! I have vague plans to produce some articles related to horror role-playing in AFF and SA, which could tie in very nicely with your Frankenstein work. :twisted:
Any news on this Dawndeath? We have zero Stellar Adventures stuff for issue one currently so I would love that.

Pitch 1: article giving tips and explanations on how to make great NPC’s (prepared and on the fly) which do more than tick a box but really engage players.

Pitch 2: à SA article about running an adventure on a ship, how to design ships and life on them. Taking a closer look at life in stellar navy’s and how to make adventures for crews in them.
How are you getting on with these HedgeWizard?

Okay, to catch people up on where we are at.

I have plenty of short and long articles. I need filler splats.

Does anyone have any ideas for half-a-column of full-column boxout splats I can use?

Mini-npc / creature stats (with image?)

Expanding on info in the books that is rather brief and giving them some extra substance?

A brief review of a book, and why you should buy it?

Would someone be able to compile all the AFF paper token set names into a list?

Can someone provide a list of all AFF books available?

Any other ideas.

As previously mentioned, I am currently wrapping up a (very long) SA game.
If you think it may be useful, I can push this and you can decide how you want to divide it across different issues. However, this way you'd have two adventures in the first issue, which is maybe a bit too much...
