    D&D Fanzine, some feedback please?

    Hello all! With the help of the editors at D&D Wiki, I've put together a prototype fanzine for D&D homebrew (it's called "Homebrew"), and I'm looking for feedback before we start proper with Issue 1. Would it be okay to post a link to it? (Or would that be considered spam?)
    Thanks.

    Edit: Well, no replies, so I'll add the links.

    You can see it at Scribd: https://www.scribd.com/doc/260237712/Homebrew-Issue-0/
    You can leave feedback, here, or at Scribd, or at the Wiki: http://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/D%26D_Wiki_Magazine

    Thank-you again.

    Well, I was expecting something, even if it was just "go away"!

    Yeah, it can be frustrating, but over the last decade or so folks have seen hundreds of fanzines launched and disappear (heck, I was responsible fora couple myself!) I guess people just get a bit too used to it and start glossing over them. For what it's worth, this looks like a decent effort!

    Thankyou for the response! Would this sub-forum be the right place to post a link when we launch issue 1? (Since the contents are all homebrew things)

    It looks better than I expected, but the legality seems dubious (particularly when you start using the terms D&D and Dungeon Master) and it's unprintable.

    Thanks, Issue 1 will have a printer-friendly version. For the legalities, I'm treating it under the WotC Fan Site policy. Maybe calling the magazine a "website" is a stretch, but it's a collection of material from a fan site, and it's viewable in a web browser...

    Cool.

    It's a stretch, but at least you've thought about it.

    Well I've finally cobbled together issue 1. It can be found at https://www.scribd.com/doc/268815801/Houserule-Issue-1
    If you decide to have a look, thank-you for your time, and I look forward to your feedback (either at scribd or at dandwiki.com - my user talk page is here )

    The theme for issue 2 is "magic weapons". If you've made a cool magic weapon or a related class, feat, etc. and you don't mind releasing it under a copyleft license, come and visit us at http://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/D%26D_W...gazine/Issue_2
    Thankyou!

    Nice to see someone else doing a fanzine (I do a Forgotten Realms only one).

    It looks very nice and well laid out, the artwork fits nicely as well.

    I can't comment on the articles themselves since I have used my own ruleset for over a year now, but overall I'd say its good stuff.

    The hard part is keeping it going.
