Hi there -
of Fight On!
is in proof now. In a lot of ways it's our best issue yet, but there's one glaring omission!
Except for a couple nice pieces of art by Vincent Baker, we don't really have any contribuors from the 'indie scene' this time out, unless you count me. I think this is unfortunate. Paul Czege's piece in FO #1
was mind-blowing in a good way, Vincent Baker's piece in #2
was I think the best random monster generator I've seen in 32 years of playing D&D, and Jason Morningstar gave us a really excellent adventure for #3
. I had a couple of you I was working on for #4
, but nobody managed to get anything in.
There are several reasons I like to get stuff from you folks into the magazine. One is that I think it helps overcome prejudices (both against 'story gamers' and against old schoolers), and another is that it helps raise awareness of the magazine among a broader demographic. But really the most important reason is that a core 'old-school' tradition is that of homebrewing and doing new and weird things, or old things in new and interesting ways. Frankly, a lot of people in the 'indie scene' excel at that.
So, if you want to pitch an article, or have questions about the magazine, you can email me at calithena at gmail dot com, and I'll try to get back to answer them here as well. All the offers I made to various people in the past are still open too, we'll take the stuff if you want to finish it up. This would be something you would do for fun, ideally - a place for inspirations that don't generate their own games, perhaps. We don't pay (except in free contributor PDFs of the issue of publication) but we also don't ask for copyright or ownership, that stays with you, as do all other rights. All we ask for is the right to publish your article in the form it's originally published in in the issue it's originally published in in perpetuity.
