Kickstarter - Hexagram #1, an Old-School RPG Zine for The Fantasy Trip (Zine Quest)

I'm enjoying Kickstarter's Zine Quest month. More zines!

This time we are looking at Hexagram #1, an Old-School RPG Zine for The Fantasy Trip. Sure, I'm still waiting on my The Fantasy Trip boxed set, but now it will have a zine companion ;)
Welcome to Hexagram, an old-school RPG zine for The Fantasy Trip that, we hope, won't be a one-and-done project. Starting out as a 16 page (8.5-inch by 5.5-inch) B&W publication, your support has made the zine a reality and, with luck, will push the page count higher and higher as we attract more backers. 
(Later note: Up to 24 pages now, and still more than a week to grow.) 
What's inside Hexagram? Great stuff, including: 
  • "Snackromancer," by Guy McLimore. An encounter for use with The Fantasy Trip.
  • "Overloading a Treasure Chest," by Philip Reed. What goes into packing an 8+ pound roleplaying game boxed set?
  • "Rumors and Truths," by Steven Marsh.
  • "Twenty Terrible Traps," by Steve Jackson. Don't throw away your d20. We have much evil love for it.
  • A preview of our next BIG TFT campaign, with samples!
  • Plus more articles to be determined!
3 bucks for the PDF. 6 bucks plus shipping for the print copy.

As for add-ons, I'm grabbing these:

  1. It's neat to see you highlighting these zines. Hopefully you'll do more of them. I briefly looked at doing a Zine Quest Kickstarter to relaunch the Frontier Explorer but in looking at the requirements our production values were too high. Our print version is 8.5 x 11 full color and the requirements for inclusion in the Zine Quest was 8.5 x 5.5 and single color. Plus we produce them print-on-demand and not by hand. We are center-stapled (saddle stitched) though. :-)

    If anyone is interested in the relaunch, details can be found at http://frontierexplorer.org/article/were-back
