    Space Gamer, Different Worlds, Fantasy Gamer, White Wolf magazine, Shadis, Pyramid...

    At the D&D WikiProject on Wikipedia, we're always looking to improve the quality of our articles. We hope to get more and more in as good quality as those for the original Ravenloft module (featured on the main page today) and Expedition to the Barrier Peaks (featured in July).

    Some of the best resources we have found are the reviews, previews, interviews, and other coverage found in various gaming magazines, such as older issues of White Dwarf from Games Workshop. There are at least half a dozen such magazines, some old and some not so old, which have covered D&D products to some degree. I have gotten my hands on a good chunk of White Dwarf issues from before they put the focus solely on Games Workshop products, and the content I have been able to add to Wikipedia articles has been fantastic. But my collection of retro gaming magazines, and other useful sources, is so terribly incomplete!

    I recently started a thread on our WikiProject regarding getting access to more sources for article improvement. As I noted there, I came up with a list of magazines with reviews in them that we can use to improve (or create) articles on various D&D publications. If you have copies of any of the issues listed there, or issues of some other magazine with reviews which I was not previously aware, you can help out in a big way! You don't have to do any actual editing on Wikipedia, as I'm more than willing to put in the work. If you could send me a copy of the text of the reviews, or a readable scan of any of the reviews on that list (including author name, issue #, cover date, page numbers, publisher name, please) I will do all the work myself.

    Any way you can help out, small or big, is appreciated!

    I'm not sure how much help it'll be, but Space Gamer issues are being released in PDF by sjgames.

    You mean just the reviews list? I'm feeling lazy myself, so I haven't bothered to add the strikeouts for the ones that are completed (about 5% of them), so you'll have to click on the link in my first post to be sure. It doesn't look as good on here anyway!

    In a box somewhere, I have most of the issues of Adventure Gaming, Tim Kask's excellent but short-lived magazine from the early '80s. I don't recall how much there was in the way of D&D reviews in those, but as I find the time in the next couple weeks, I'll dig 'em out and look.

    Hey, cool! I got an opportunity to look at the reviews from "The Space Gamer" #35, which allowed me to add information from reviews for The Village of Hommlet, Slave Pits of the Undercity, and Queen of the Demonweb Pits! Hopefully each of the corresponding articles is thusly a little bit better.

    Anyone got any more of these mags?
