First issue submissions

Post by HedgeWizard » Fri Jan 03, 2020 11:11 am

Happy 2020 everyone!

How about we restart our work on the AFF Fanzine? Perhaps we can set a deadline for article entries. End of January?

I’m posting this here and in the AFF forum to get the maximum number of people.

That’s why I put out these messages. It’s gone a bit quiet with the end of year festivities and it would be great to get things moving again.

I’m working on some things.

Hey all.

I've not heard from Graham for ages, but really it's in my hands I guess to start putting things together.

Two issues with that:

1. While I've written for and proofread a magazine before I've never constructed one. And I don't want to do a basic "throw some text on a page" sort of job, I want it to look decent. That will take time.

2. I'm trying to get the new C&D book edited and proofread as a matter of urgency. It's slow going and is holding up Graham's release of that book. I *have* to prioritise that endeavour. Sorry.


The more ideas, works of art, stories, articles, games, etc you can throw up here/on the Drive account the better. It gives us stuff to work with. Let's try to make the first episode about "Helping new GMs to AFF" as much as possible - half the mag on that topic would be good.

Thank you Bifford for all that you are doing, understand this is a bit of a learning experience and that you want to get it right. Happy to will send you some things next week.

Tried sending you a message but it got stuck in the outbox. Don’t know if messages are still working here. How best to send articles?

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

That's a significant amount of content. I could see that being a series of jungle-themed articles over several issues.

To spice things up a bit, I could do similar themed articles for different terrains e.g. mountain hazards or the spells of steppe nomad shamans etc. So that people don't get jungle fever.
