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&D_Wiki_Magazine

Thank-you again.

Well, that was fun

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. :)

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.

Just had a quick look at this, but it seems pretty good! I like the layout and design. It looks good, while being clear and readable. I also like the way you set it up. The fact that the issues seem to be put together in the same way, centered around a theme and with the same type of content connected to that theme, makes it predictable (in a good way). I also like that you included stats for several different edititons. Shows how much effort is being put into the content.
As for the content itself, I'm not so sure. I guess this sort of thing is subjective, but I myself haven't found anything in the first two issues that I will likely be using in my game. That's probably just me being picky, though. ;) Great work, keep it up!

If you could upload it somewhere other than scribd, I'd appreciate it. I refuse to download an app just to read it...
