Today I peek at three currently funding zines that are part of ZineQuest 3. As I mentioned prior, I'll be doing a series of Livestreamed interviews of the creators of various zines during the month of February.
First up is The 13th Fleet. In truth, it reminds me much of the micro and pocket games from SJG, TSR, and others back in the 80s and 90s that I would snag during my pilgrimages to the Complete Strategist. Note, I was supposed to do a Livestream earlier this morning with the writer of The 13th Fleet but we had technical issues. We will attempt to reschedule.
Or it’ll end with the remains of the 13th Fleet floating as cold, dead debris through the dark void of space...
One of the two.
Our next peek is Rascals. Sticking with scifi, Rascals focuses not on the officers, but the talented grunts - or dare I say "Adventurers" of the genre. The focus shifts from the leaders to the survivors.
Note: I'll be having a Fireside Chat Livestream on Friday 2/5/21@8 PM Eastern with Gile Pritchard over at our YouTube Channel.
You are Rascals: ex-special forces, spies, or crooks. Hard boiled types who worked together in the hottest zones during the former unpleasantness. You were some of the few who managed to get out, make a new life, but something has changed all that...
Now the old crew is together again, you Rascals who survived the bloody final years of terrible war, have been pulled back. An abominable plot is unfolding in secret...
Rounding out today's picks we have Wizard Funk 3. If you play OSR games in their default genre (is it obvious I'm talking old school D&D and its clones and simulacrums?) Wizard Funk deserves a look. Full disclosure, I consider myself friends with the creators of Wizard Funk. I still think its awesome, but I may be biased ;)
My gaming buddies and I have put together a zine for the sheer enjoyment of it. We love to play Old School RPGs. Myself? I was introduced to D&D back in 1981. I loved the hobby then and love it even more today. If you have seen Wizard Funk 1 and 2, then you will have a good idea about what you will get for your hard earned money in Wizard Funk 3. If you love Old School Rules, then you should take a chance on this KS. It's not much money and I've been able to deliver a satisfying product in the past. Fight On brothers and sisters of the OSR!
