Gygax Magazine: Dragon reborn

Jayson sez, "Gygax magazine is a quarterly adventure-gaming magazine, created in the spirit of such iconic '80s journals as Dragon, White Dwarf, Adventure Gaming, and Pegasus. At the helm are Gary Gygax's two eldest sons, Luke & Ernest Gary Gygax Jr., along with Jayson Elliot, and Dragon magazine founder Tim Kask. The first issue includes an article by Cory Doctorow on DMing for toddlers, as well as new comics from Phil Foglio (What's New With Phil & Dixie) and Rich Burlew (The Order of the Stick). Gygax will launch its first issue this Saturday at The Brooklyn Strategist. The event, which is open to the public, will also have lots of gaming (including a massive AD&D 1E dungeon delve with the founder of Dwarven Forge) and a video Q&A with the staff. The whole event will be live-streamed at GygaxMagazine.com."

    Sweet!  I really missed Dragon a lot.

  3. Snig says:

    I’m not normally a font nerd, but the cribbing of the old Dragon font gave me warm fuzzies of decades past. 

  4. Christopher says:

    This is great news, but will they also have cartoons by Phil Foglio?

    Dwarven Forge sets are great if you have the space to keep them up. Beautiful props for role playing. Expensive, some say, but role play eye candy is sweet.

    Let me know when Wormy is back.

    • jgs says:

      Yes, exactly. I would subscribe to Wormy magazine, whether or not there was any bonus gaming material included.

      WHOOF. 
      I’d be happy for just a compilation of the existing strips, ’cause all reports have been that Tramp AIN’T interested.

  7. What time and time zone is the live stream event ?

  8. V says:

    Kewl, was just thinking about digging out the old books to introduce the kidlet to the game…

      Started introducing my 8 year old daughter who is a fan of Pokemon video games to it… needed to simplify a bit as character creation was starting to talk longer than she might like…

    This sounds awesome! I’m really excited, I’ve been wanting to get a good adventure/rpg magazine. I can’t wait!

    I am hoping like hell that this is not a print only gig. If they give a pdf option I know where my monies will go.

    I have GOT to see your submission guidelines. :-)

    Looking forward to reading your article. I co-authored the Mythus FRPG with Gary, and have recently released a children’s game designed to introduce toddlers to roleplaying (which I won’t plug here, but should be easy enough to find with a search engine). Thank you for contributing to the industry!

    p.s. Love your work; can’t wait for Homeland!

    loving the old school Dragon look. it almost feels like a journal. the cartoony 3E/4E/Pathfinder/FFG art and layout trend in fantasy gaming is tired as hell and offers little sincerity or mystique. its just cluttered, sterile, and silly.
