Gate Pass Gazette Collected Volumes

In November, we’ll have GPG #9, which will make a nice round 10 GPGs (as we started at #0). I love the GPG keep all the PDFs on my phone, but I can’t help but think that this system is starting to be unwieldy. In addition, as A5e grows and more and more people discover the GPG, individually downloading and navigating all the previous files is going to become more and more cumbersome.

In my ideal world, every 10 or so GPGs would be reformatted together with an updated table of contents, but I understand that would be a lot to ask when the team is busy making the individual magazines as it is. But could we at least lump the existing magazines into one file that you could scroll through continuously without having to switch back and forth? (The online tools are of course available, but they don’t have the artwork.)

I know this wouldn’t be too hard for me to do for myself, but I imagine many people could benefit from it, and not everyone is tech-savvy enough to know how.

I kinda feel like as time goes on, the content in the GPG could probably stand to go through some revisions and a collected edition would be a great way to do that. Unless they just end up adding it into a "proper" book later, kinda like how WotC integrates their smaller releases later.

To some degree that does happen. But not exactly in the way you think, I suspect.

As a GPG writer (Or EN5ider) you sign a 1 year contract for 5 cents a word (6 cents for EN5ider). After that year of exclusivity, the rights to your writing revert back to you. So the articles I have in the GPG I could put into my own book and sell on DriveThruRPG. Or sell to EN Publishing -again- as part of a permanent deal for a compilation of GPG articles.

It certainly isn't impossible to see a GPG Compilation from EN Publishing... but I would rate it as unlikely.

Actually, I believe EN Publishing reserves the right to re-publish the content you write for them as much as they want without re-paying for it, but otherwise, yeah, exactly as you described.

It's an extremely favorable set of terms. Savannah (Editor for the GPG) and Mike (Editor for EN5ider) are really nice to work with, and EN Publishing always pays on time, too! If anyone reading this has thought about writing for the GPG or En5ider and is on the fence, do it! It's a very positive experience.

@Morrus Has the material for the GPG A1 been reorganized so that different articles in the same category are together (such as all 33 archetypes being in one place) or is it organized chronologically by issue?
