The Table of Contents for Gygax Magazine #1 (Photo)



Someone, anyone, please tell me this does not look like ToC of Dragon Magazine from the mid '80s.

I like the look a lot, but even my wife noted the similarity (due to helping me box up for storage 150+ issues of the Dragon last winter for storage) and she is not a gamer.

Anyway, for those that are interested, the above is the ToC of Dragon Gygax Magazine Issue #1 ;)

  5. Maybe it was done that way to pay tribute to what Gary started all those years ago. I like the format... now wants one "real baaaaaad"!

  6. So what are the articles like? Are they just general advice? I see one article on ICONS, whatever that is. Looks like there is an adventure...

    This looks like it might have more worth as a collectible (especially if there is a lawsuit over the trade dress) rather than something I would ever read, much less use.

    1. the only part i read so far was Len Lakofka's article - nice catch up and interesting match about which is better - plus to hit or plus to damage.

      nothing will be read tonight - i have a game to run in less than an hour ;)

      tomorrow hopefully...

  7. I just went to buy a subscription to this and then discovered that the only option to send this to Australia costs $34 for a single issue and $72 for a 4 issue subscription. I was going to buy it basically to just support them but I don't think so...

    1. I'm in the same boat Nick. Let's hope Milsims gets this in and we can buy direct from them instead. Otherwise I can only hope the pdfs will be reasonably priced.

    2. Canada is also horrifically expensive. Considering it is free to ship to next door, but $50 to Canada...

  8. Goodman Games & now TSR. What is it with US companies & expensive shipping rates?
