Mini Review - Oubliette Issue #4

(Third try... lets see how buggered this attempt is)

It's been over 3 months since the last issue of Oubliette was released on the virtual magazine stand.  In that time, OD&Ditties closed it's doors, leaving one less magazine / fanzine covering the OSR, let alone RPGs in general.  Still, Oubliette 4 was well worth the wait.

30 some odd pages for the magazine with another 50 or so bonus material, the reader is given a lot to look at for the 2 bucks he spent.

We get an adventure (geared to firearms but they can be removed), fiction, new monsters, weapons, a cartoon, reviews... and then we get the bonus material.

From the publisher's spiel:

80 jam-packed pages including: 34 Page Magazine, 13 Pages of Magic-User Spell Cards for Labyrinth Lord, and Character Sheets, Figures and Multi-Part Maps for this Issue's Adventure.
Written for Labyrinth Lord, but also ideal for use with any Basic/Expert/Advanced original or clone, with little or no adjustment required.
Full Contents:
# Weapons Test - A Labyrinth Lord Adventure with Guns
# Monster Club #6 - Zombies
# Firearm Rules for Labyrinth Lord Part 3 - The Monsters Fight Back
# Tales from Hell - Buckets of Legend
# Monster Club #7 - Monster Scaling
