Looking for Contributors for The Tankard Zine by the Designers & Makers on the Tenkar's Tavern Discord Server

Didn't think I'd be making this announcement so soon but the team of Designers & Makers at the Tenkar's Tavern Discord Server behind The Tankard Zine are chomping at the bit.

What is The Tankard Zine? We expect it to be a showcase for writers, artists, and mappers - both established and new. We are working with various publishers to allow access to their IP for use in the zine.

What kind of content? Maps, articles, adventures, magic items, spaceship designs, etc. While some may be system specific, much will not be restricted to any particular system or genre.

Pricing? Free in PDF. We want it to be read and shared for the greatest exposure. There is talk about a yearly POD compilation. We'll cross that bridge if and when we get there.

Looking for - an Editor in Chief as well as contributors of content. None of these are paying gigs, at least not out of the box. If / when we get some advertising within the pages we'll revisit that.

Want to know more or participate in the conversation that will help form the direction of The Tankard? Join the Tenkar's Tavern Discord Server: https://discord.gg/fReGmuD

For what it is worth, @Pexx and I will be acting as co-publishers in a mostly "hands-off" status (there is a ton of stuff in the works for all things Tavern and we simply don't have the time to "monkey up the works ;) Whoever becomes Editor-In-Cheif of The Tankard will be very influential in the final product.

Damn it! We need some official Tankard art...


  1. I'm in, tell me what you need and/or want. Don't think I could wrangle the "talent" as EIC though.

  2. So only discord users can help and contribute?

    1. The editor-in-chief will need to use Discord, as the zine itself was suggested by and is being organized by the Designers & Makers on the Tenkar's Tavern Discord Server. Once we have an EIC in place we will have additional method(s) to contact the EIC and submit proposals.

      If you want to get in on the ground floor - as in "right now" - the discussion is happening on Discord.

  3. One tool to rule them all, one tool to find them, One tool to bring them all and in the Discord bind them.

  4. Good luck! I only really did PR stuff for & Magazine, and some editing/proofreading so I don't think I can help here. But I do wish you good luck and am excited for you and the 'zine team!
