    I know someone with a magazine/book/game store very close to Lake Geneva I can put you in touch with, if you'd like.

    I was just in Lake Geneva for Gary's Funeral.

    I looked for a store and didn't see one. I would love a chance to sell the magazine closer to the heart land of D&D

    cdenham over at Dundjinni posted a very nice review on Dragon Roots issue #0. Since his account on here is giving him problems, he asked someone else to post it ... so here it is

    My additional 2 cents on the magazine -

    Loved the layout! It looks to be very professionally done. I have to admit that I went in a bit skeptical and have to admit I very happily surprised.

    Before I comment on the remainder I think I have to throw my one negative in because it will explain my thoughts on the rest of the magazine. From the name I thought it would be a bit of a throw back to D&D's roots as well. I see that it was your goal to go back to the old style of Dragon magazine. On that basis, you did a really great job. I believe this misunderstanding was entirely my fault.

    Artwork - great! You might want to note it for more mature players.

    Maps - great! Of course, with Kepli working on them what else would you expect.

    What's Your Story? - A very handy article and is something I intend to tweak slightly for use with the older rules.

    Be Thee for Law or Chaos - Another very good, handy article regardless of which version you use.

    4th Edition Queries - My favorite article! It addresses my biggest disappointments with the d20 version of D&D and actually has me excited about version 4.0 coming out! Thanks! (PS - With this being said, I vote for making the swap to 4.0 once it is available but this is subject to change once I actually get to see it.)

    Working Your Way Up To First Level - An excellent idea for issue #0. I also like the way that a lot of this first issue was geared toward lower level characters. Was this intentional? Are the initial issues going to follow this same trend of the articles advancing slightly in level with each issue?

    A Day at the Fair - an interesting idea for a module and the whole Zero to Hero concept is the main reason I'm seriously considering a subscription. I love the way you use the module to teach the basics of the game as well. (And a new monster to boot!)

    Overall, 4.5 out of 5!

    My wife and I both like the coverart on the premiere issue. I don't have the magazine, so can't speak for what might be inside, but I don't see anything that should be THAT offensive.

    Keep it up
