Yep, Gygax Magazine Issue #1 has been released on RPGNow for $4.99.

I have the print copy, and it has it's really good and really ambivalent parts to it. It is a first issue, so it may be experiencing growing pains. Or maybe we'll continue to get lets of articles proving "Old School " Cred.

  1. I absolutely love the cover, clearly hearkens back to the days when I was a teenager who could not wait to get inside to read it and would sit down on the curb by the mailbox and flip through the pages the moment the mailman dropped it off.

  2. Thanks for the heads up on this! I just downloaded it and flipping through it, it looks pretty good. Definitely has that old school vibe. I'm glad people are still putting stuff like this out.

  3. So are they making a print version for subscription? Let's be honest, sometimes we like a reading material we can take with us when we are on our throne..
